Chapter 609 Get Rich or Die Trying
Qin Haodong said, “They came for you. Someone spent $10,000,000 to kill you.”
Li Meiyu asked in surprise, “Why did they want to kill me?”
Qin Haodong said, “Of course, it’s for money. But you should know better than me who did it and the reason.”
Li Meiyu was silent. No one knew what she was thinking.
Qin Haodong navigated the boat to the shore, but he did not return to the seaside bathhouse.
The boat was covered with blood, and the source was unclear. It was very likely that the mercenaries had stolen it. In order to avoid unnecessary trouble, he drove to a beach not far from the bathhouse.
Compared with the crowded seaside bathhouse, it was much quieter here. When they arrived, only a small boat was floating on the sea.
The boat did not move, but floated on the sea surface. An old man wearing a bamboo hat was sitting on the bow of the boat, holding a fishing rod and concentrating on fishing.
When Qin Haodong’s yacht passed by the boat, the old man’s face showed he was joyful, and the fishing rod in his hand also moved. It seemed that fish had taken the bait.
When the two boats approached, the old man shook his wrist and the fishing rod vibrated. Then the white line quickly rose up from the water.
However, there were no fish on the fishing rod. A huge hook with silver light shot toward Li Meiyu’s neck like a shining machete.
It’s a special hook. It would probably immediately shear the trachea if she was caught.
Li Meiyu didn’t expect the amiable fisherman to be a killer. She didn’t have time to react. She was stunned.
This assassination seemed extremely simple, but it was a killing move that had been prepared for a long time. It was done in silence.
It was fast. In the blink of an eye, the unexpected attack had reached Li Meiyu’s throat.
The old man sneered. Suddenly, a golden light flashed, and the sharp Sword Qi instantly cut the hook into powder.
The old man was shocked. He didn’t expect that Qin Haodong, who didn’t look amazing, was a master. However, he didn’t give up. He took off the bamboo hat on his head and waved it toward Li Meiyu.
This bamboo hat’s exterior was specially made with a layer of straw, but in fact, it was made of fine steel inside. There were more than a dozen short blades in the outer circle, which looked like a sharp revolving knife when rotating.
The bamboo hat whistled, with a sharp sound of breaking through the air. It seemed that the momentum was extremely amazing.
However, Qin Haodong didn’t care about this kind of hidden weapon at all. He raised his hand and patted it as if he were swatting a fly. The wind from his palm had blown the bamboo hat away.
Without the cover of the bamboo hat, the old man showed a weather-beaten face. He stared at Qin Haodong and asked, “How did you see through that?”
Qin Haodong said, “Fishermen always catch fish. A fool like you would starve to death if you fish here. A killer like you is really not good at doing your job. You’re completely brain-dead!”
“Kid, how dare you scold me? You are not in my assassination mission, but I will kill you too.”
The old man said as he took out an AK from the bamboo basket next to him. He pointed to Qin Haodong and Li Meiyu and shouted with a ferocious look, “Go to hell!”
After that, he pulled the trigger hard, but he didn’t hear the gunshot. Then, he felt a sharp pain in his wrist, and his two hands fell on the deck of the boat.
The old man let out a miserable scream and fell on the deck.
Qin Haodong gently jumped onto the small fishing boat. He pointed the Xuan Yuan Sword at the old man’s chest and said, “Tell me, who is your employer?”
He hadn’t taken the mercenary group seriously just now. Now that they suffered two assassination attempts in a row, things were not so simple. He had to figure out the situation.
“I… I… don’t know…”
The old man endured the pain, but his face betrayed his anguish.
At that moment, Qin Haodong turned over the Xuan Yuan Sword on his wrist and sent out a sharp ray of Sword Qi, directly chopping the cabin in front of him.
A scream echoed as another killer hidden in the cabin was cut in half, along with the AK in his hand.
While looking back, Qin Haodong used Mind-Manipulating on the old man. “Tell me, who sent you?”
The old man said, “We’re just killers. We don’t know who the employer is. We only know that the employer has offered $10,000,000 to kill this woman named Li Meiyu.”
Since he didn’t know who the employer was, it was useless to keep him alive. Qin Haodong kicked the old man into the sea, turned around, jumped back to the yacht, and went to the shore.
After choosing a flat beach, Qin Haodong took Li Meiyu ashore.
Li Meiyu said gratefully, “Haodong, thank you for saving me.”
These two assassinations had been very dangerous. If it hadn’t been for Qin Haodong, she would have died twice. At this time, she realized how important the bodyguard that her grandfather had found was.
“You’re welcome. It’s my duty to protect you.” Qin Haodong glanced at her and said, “Are you cold?”
“A little bit!”
They didn’t notice the weather had changed. Thick dark clouds covered the sun, and the sea breeze was blowing. Li Meiyu had been in the sea for a long time, and she was wearing only a bikini. She was so cold that her lips were blue.
Qin Haodong only had a pair of swimming trunks, which couldn’t help Li Meiyu much.
He jumped on a rock next to him and looked into the distance. After getting down, he said, “There’s a fishing village in front of us. Let’s go and have a look. I’ll find you a piece of clothing and eat something.”
Qin Haodong spoke as he led Li Meiyu forward. They walked to the small village in front of them. There was a road in front of the village. There was a small restaurant next to the road with the sign of the seafood wonton restaurant hanging on it.
Qin Haodong said, “Let’s go eat a bowl of wonton first, and then go back to the bathhouse!”
Li Meiyu nodded and they walked toward the restaurant together.
In front of the restaurant, a middle-aged woman in her 40s was collecting clothes. Qin Haodong stepped forward and said, “Can you sell us a coat?”
The middle-aged woman looked back at them. When she saw Li Meiyu, she said, “Don’t you feel cold? Don’t talk about money. Take it and wear it.”
After that, she handed a coat to Li Meiyu. She took the coat, put it on, and her face suddenly relaxed a lot.
“Thank you,” Li Meiyu said gratefully.
“It’s not a big deal. You don’t need to thank me. Let’s go inside. I’ll cook a bowl of wonton for you and have a taste.”
The middle-aged woman said as she warmly let them into the wonton restaurant, and then went to the kitchen to cook.
At that time, a boy about 10 years old ran out. He was wearing a pair of big shorts. Perhaps because he often played on the beach, the skin of his whole body was tanned.
After seeing Li Meiyu, he ran over and said, “Sister, you are so beautiful, even more beautiful than my mother.”
At this time, Li Meiyu calmed down a lot and said, “Thank you for your praise.”
The little boy said, “Sister, when I grow up, I will make a lot of money, and then I will marry you.”
Qin Haodong said, “Are all the children so precocious nowadays?”
Li Meiyu glared at him and said charmingly, “He has good taste, but you don’t have eyes.”
They chatted with the little boy for a while, and a few minutes later, the middle-aged woman came out with two large bowls of wonton.
The middle-aged woman said enthusiastically, “Have a try and see how good my cooking is.”
Qin Haodong took a bowl of wonton and put it in front of him. He sniffed and said, “Sister, these wontons are so fragrant.”
The middle-aged woman wiped her hands on the apron and said, “This is my ancestral secret recipe. The seasoning is special and smells good.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “Sister, does the police know that you use the poison as seasoning?”
After hearing that, the middle-aged woman’s expression suddenly changed. Then, she shook her wrist, and a bowl of wonton was put toward Qin Haodong’s face. At the same time, a dagger appeared in her hand like a magic trick, and she stabbed at Li Meiyu.
The innocent face of the little boy, who had been standing beside her, had also changed. He also took out a short knife and ferociously stabbed at Li Meiyu’s waist.
This was not a little boy at all, but a dwarf killer who would not grow up.
Qin Haodong raised his foot and kicked on the middle-aged woman’s lower abdomen, directly kicking her out and slamming her into the opposite wall.
Then, he stretched out his hand and grabbed the dwarf killer’s wrist. He smiled and said, “Actually, you’ve already revealed yourself a long time ago, do you know that?”
The dwarf killer struggled desperately, but he still couldn’t get rid of it. He said with a frightened face, “How did you see through it?”
Qin Haodong said, “You can only blame yourself for being too lecherous. You always see where you shouldn’t look. It’s not the reaction of a little boy at all.
“It’s fate that brought us together. Now, let me help you to make up for this flaw.”
Qin Haodong said as he kicked between the dwarf killer’s legs.
The dwarf killer held his lower abdomen with both hands and kept rolling on the ground, howling like a pig.
At this time, the middle-aged woman rushed over to Li Meiyu with a long knife and slashed.
Qin Haodong shook his head. She really didn’t care about money or life. He really didn’t know how such a brainless killer could have lived until now.
He raised his wrist and the Xuan Yuan Sword pierced the middle-aged woman’s throat. Then, he walked in front of the dwarf killer and said, “You’d better not be a eunuch. Go to hell.”
In the dwarf killer’s horrified eyes, Qin Haodong pierced his heart with the sword.
Only then did Li Meiyu come to her senses. She ran forward and held Qin Haodong’s arm tightly. “Didn’t they run the restaurant? Why are they killers?”
Qin Haodong said, “If I’m right, the owner of this restaurant was killed earlier.”
After that, they went to the kitchen. Sure enough, a middle-aged couple was lying in a pool of blood.
He called Nalan Wuxia and said to Li Meiyu, “Let’s go back quickly. We have encountered so many killers in succession that I’m afraid something bad has happened to your grandfather.”
