Chapter 610 Arriving in Hong Kong
Upon hearing Qin Haodong’s words, Li Meiyu also became nervous. They hurried back to the seaside bathhouse.
After returning to the car, Li Meiyu turned on her cell phone. As expected, there were more than a dozen missed calls, all from the Li Family’s old housekeeper, Uncle Cheng.
As soon as she picked up the phone, it rang again. She pressed the answer button. Uncle Cheng said urgently over the phone, “Miss, come back quickly. Old Master is seriously ill.”
Li Meiyu was shocked and quickly asked, “Grandpa has always been in good health. Why did he suddenly fall ill?”
“Old Master has been ill for a week. In the beginning, he was fine. But today, it suddenly became serious. The doctor has given a critical illness notice. Miss, please come back as soon as possible. If you are late, you may not see him anymore.”
Li Meiyu said, “Uncle Cheng, you must take good care of grandpa. I’ll go back right away.”
After hanging up the phone, she turned to Qin Haodong and said, “My grandfather is fatally ill. You are the Medical Sage of China. Come with me to Hong Kong. You must save my grandfather.”
Qin Haodong said, “Yes, I’ll take you back to Hong Kong and treat him.”
Li Meiyu said eagerly, “Then let’s go now. Hurry up and go to the airport.”
Qin Haodong said, “Don’t worry, I’ve already checked. There are still two hours before the earliest flight to Hong Kong.
“Let’s go back to pack up and bring all the needed credentials. I have to arrange my family affairs first, and then we can go to the airport.”
“Okay, I’ll listen to you.”
After all, Li Meiyu was a 20-year-old girl. When she encountered such a serious situation, she was at a loss.
Qin Haodong drove home, called Lin Momo and the others, and explained the situation. Since Li Meiyu would no longer stay at Shanghai Medical College, Nalan Wushuang and Qi Waner naturally had no need to go to school.
Nalan Wushuang said, “Since it’s like that, I’ll go with you.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “Okay.”
Qi Waner said with a regretful face, “I also wanted to go, but I just received a call from my mother. She asked me to go back to the capital. I have been away from home for a few months. It’s time to go home.”
Feng Wu said, “I’ll go back to my sect first. After I’ve dealt with the matter, I’ll go to Hong Kong to meet you.”
Lin Momo had a lot of things to deal with in Shanghai. She had to take care of the little fellow, so she couldn’t go to Hong Kong. Finally, Qin Haodong took Nalan Wushuang and Li Meiyu on the plane to Hong Kong.
After getting on the plane, Qin Haodong said to Li Meiyu, “Do you have any idea who the killers’ employer might be?”
Li Meiyu shook her head and remained silent.
Qin Haodong said, “In fact, it’s easy to guess. When your grandfather was seriously ill, three batches of killers were sent to kill you one after another. Obviously, they wanted to stop you from going back to inherit the property.
“Think about it. If you die, who will get the Li Family’s inheritance? Whoever gets the most benefits will be the suspect.”
Li Meiyu said with a serious expression, “But they are all my closest relatives. How could they kill me?”
Qin Haodong said, “In some people’s eyes, there are only money and interests, no family affection. In big families, there are many such examples.”
Li Meiyu said, “My parents died in a car accident a few years ago. I was the only heir of the Li Family. However, my grandfather still has a younger brother and sister, who are my father’s aunt and uncle. If I die, the Li Family’s property will be theirs. But I really don’t want them have anything to do with those killers.”
“You are too kind.” Qin Haodong said, “In some cases, it’s useless to escape. You have to face them.”
Li Meiyu said, “Because I’m still young. After my father’s death, most of the assets of the family are in the hands of my father’s uncle and aunt. They take a lot of dividends every year. Can’t they be satisfied?”
Qin Haodong said, “Greed is endless. In some people’s eyes, no matter how much money they have, they will not be satisfied.”
Li Meiyu sighed and said, “Maybe grandpa has noticed something, so he asked you to be my bodyguard.”
Qin Haodong nodded. Old Li was able to start from scratch and develop such a big business. Naturally, he was not an ordinary person.
He asked again, “Why did your grandfather ask you to come here to study? And why did your grandfather ask you to study in the Chinese Medicine School of a Medical College?”
“Grandpa believes in metaphysics. There is a master called Master Zha in Hong Kong. He is very famous and has a good relationship with my grandpa.
“He said that I would face a bloody calamity when I was 20 years old. Only when I went to Shanghai Medical College to study traditional Chinese medicine could I avoid this calamity. Thus, grandpa arranged for me to come here.”
Li Meiyu turned her head, stared at Qin Haodong, and said, “Master Zha’s prediction is very accurate. If you weren’t by my side today, I would have been killed by these three groups of killers.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “Maybe.”
The plane took off in the direction of Hong Kong.
There was a luxurious villa district in Hong Kong, and the people who lived there were all top-level rich people. It was impossible for them to live there if their assets were less than ten billion yuan.
In a luxurious room, an old man in his 60s was sitting on a wooden armchair, drinking tea. A young man in his 30s rushed in and said in a panic, “Father, something bad has happened…”
The old man was the man that Li Meiyu had mentioned, Li Jianye, the second leader of the Li Group. The young man was his son, Li Xiaoting.
Li Jianye glared at his son and said reproachfully, “You’re already in your 30s. Why are you so flustered when you are troubled? What happened?”
Li Xiaoting took a deep breath, calmed down, and said, “Father, Meiyu has already boarded the plane to Hong Kong and will be back soon.”
Li Jianye’s expression changed. He pointed at Li Xiaoting and said angrily, “Didn’t I tell you to find someone to kill her? You can’t even handle such a small matter. What else can you do?”
Li Xiaoting said, “Father, don’t be angry. I arranged three groups of killers in a row, but I still can’t get in touch with them. Li Meiyu got on the plane, which means that they must have failed.”
“Useless!” Li Jianye snarled, “What kind of killers have you employed? Why can’t they even kill a woman? What are they doing?”
Li Xiaoting said, “Father, all the assassins I found are well-known on the killer list. They are very powerful. I don’t know why they all lost contact. I guess there must be masters around Li Meiyu to protect her.”
Li Jianye sat back down. After a moment of silence, he said, “It seems that this old man did not completely trust us and secretly made the arrangement.”
Li Xiaoting said, “What should we do now?”
“What should we do?” Li Jianye said with a cold smile. “What right does a woman have to inherit the big property of our Li Family? If the Li Family gives the property to her, it will all come to someone else’s hands in the future.”
Li Xiaoting said, “Father, have you already made other arrangements?”
Li Jianye said, “Of course. How could I not have made other plans since it’s such a big matter? Since we can’t kill her, let’s go with the second plan.”
After saying that, he picked up the teacup and took a sip. “In addition, my eldest brother and I have a good sister. She won’t let go of the Li Family’s property.”
Li Xiaoting said, “Father, do you mean that aunt will do something too?”
Li Jianye said, “If she doesn’t do anything, she will not be your aunt.”
As soon as Qin Haodong and the other two walked out of the airport, a young man with slick hair and a powdered face approached them. The man was wearing a snow-white suit and a pair of snow-white leather shoes. Behind him were four bodyguards in white suits. They looked very silly.
Li Meiyu whispered in Qin Haodong’s ear, “This is my aunt’s son, my cousin Wu Zixiong.”
Wu Zixiong tidied up his shiny hair and walked to Li Meiyu. He said with a smile, “Cousin, you’re finally back. I missed you so much these days.”
Li Meiyu’s face flashed with disgust. She took two steps back and said, “Cousin, why are you here?”
“I am your cousin. How could I not come to welcome you upon your return?”
After the three assassinations, Li Meiyu was very alert. She said, “Cousin, how did you know that I would be on this flight?”
Wu Zixiong’s expression froze, and then he said with a smile, “Uncle Cheng said that he called you. I thought you would come back, so I came to wait for you.”
Then, he turned his head and saw Nalan Wushuang. His eyes showed his surprise and greed. As for Qin Haodong, he ignored him automatically.
“Cousin, who is this beautiful woman? Can you introduce her to me?”
Before Li Meiyu could speak, Qin Haodong took the initiative to say, “We are Miss Li’s bodyguards.”
Wu Zixiong glanced at him with a hint of contempt in his eyes. All the bodyguards behind him were tall and strong, full of murderous intent. He didn’t understand why his cousin had such two bodyguards.
Although she was a little pretty, what was the point of that? Did bodyguards make a living by their looks?
Li Meiyu asked, “How’s my grandfather?”
“It doesn’t matter. He is alright.” Wu Zixiong said, “Cousin, you must be tired after taking the plane all the way. Come home with me to have a rest first.”
Li Meiyu frowned. Uncle Cheng had said that her grandfather’s condition was very bad. His life was in danger at any time. The doctor had informed them that he was critically ill, but Wu Zixiong told her that nothing serious had happened to him. In contrast, she believed in Uncle Cheng, who had been in the Li Family for many years.
Wu Zixiong said this for only one purpose—he didn’t want her to see her grandfather so soon.
She said, “Cousin, I’m not tired. I have to go back to see my grandpa first.”
As Li Meiyu wouldn’t listen to his arrangements, Wu Zixiong frowned and said, “In that case, my cousin, please come with me. This is our family’s business. Outsiders shouldn’t follow us.”
He turned to Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang and said, “You can have a good time in Hong Kong these days, and I will pay all your expenses.”
Li Meiyu’s face changed and she said, “Cousin, what are you doing? They are my friends, not outsiders.”
