Chapter 1134 A Restricted Military Zone
He Xue could feel Fang Qiu’s arm around her waist.
In a flash, the scene before her eyes changed, and they had jumped up and were now at the roof of her room. From above, she had a full view of the quadrangle courtyard. She saw the two guards outside her “cell”. They were watching the surroundings with great care.
She turned around.
Fang Qiu’s face was so close to hers. Somehow, He Xue’s heart skipped a beat.
Only then did she realize how extraordinary his martial arts skills were.
It was incredible that he could rescue her from the heavily guarded room without even making a sound.
They landed on the ground.
Fang Qiu skimmed rapidly across the road with He Xue, darting out more than a hundred meters. It was only until they were out of the vicinity of Lakeside Garden that he finally slowed down and gradually came to a stop.
As soon as He Xue landed on the firm ground, she finally let out a cry of shock, still badly shaken as if she had just experienced a mighty storm.
“Can you tell me what’s going on now?” Fang Qiu asked.
“It’s getting late. Let’s go back to the base first. I’ll tell you on the way.”
With that, He Xue turned her head and glanced around. She pulled Fang Qiu to a well-lit place and said, “Book our tickets.”
Soon, they arrived at the airport and got the plane tickets Fang Qiu had booked and took the plane back to Beijiang that very night.
“Can you tell me now?”
On the plane, Fang Qiu looked at He Xue and asked.
“It’s my family.”
He Xue took a glass of water from the air hostess and took a sip before telling Fang Qiu everything.
After listening to the whole story, Fang Qiu shook his head with a wry smile.
He didn’t know what to say about this kind of thing.
But as her friend and boss, Fang Qiu had to be responsible for his friend and employee, so he believed in He Xue and was willing to help her get out of the predicament unconditionally.
She ended her narration.
He Xue let out a long sigh and then suddenly rolled her eyes. She looked at Fang Qiu and asked, “Actually, I’m particularly curious: how did I suddenly become so good at fighting? Although I was caught in the end, I could beat up seven or eight bodyguards easily. That is something I didn’t even dare to think about before. What on earth is going on?”
Fang Qiu said with a smile, “You see, I’m awesome. So, the skills I taught you must be terrific too.”
He Xue was stunned and didn’t know what to say for a moment. She pouted and asked, “How did you become so awesome?”
Fang Qiu smiled with an air of mystery and replied, “Because I practice the art of Qi.”
He Xue made a little deprecating shrug.
“If Qi-practicing could make him an expert, then experts could be found everywhere.
“Especially when he rescued me from the room, everything suddenly became tranquil and surreal. It felt like an out-of-this-world experience inside the room. It seemed as if I was not in the same world as the people guarding the door outside.
“That kind of feeling is authentic.
“This guy must have many secrets!”
He Xue thought to herself, sizing Fang Qiu up mentally.
“Let’s continue to talk about you.”
Fang Qiu looked at He Xue and asked, “Although you escaped, your grandfather and the others will not give up so easily on the marriage arrangement. What are you going to do next?”
He Xue shook her head with a look of distress on her face. Then she said, “The only thing I can do now is to hide. I suppose no one can find me in the cultivation base. If I go missing again, you can put aside all considerations for their feelings and call the police!”
“Do you need my help to resolve this matter?” Fang Qiu asked.
He Xue glanced briefly at Fang Qiu and said, “Little kid, it has nothing to do with you.”
“Then let’s wait and see.”
A wry smile emerged on Fang Qiu’s face.
What could he do?
He was younger than her, so he couldn’t argue with her even when she called him little kid.
Nevertheless, Fang Qiu was seriously concerned about the troublesome problem that plagued He Xue.
He could only stand by and do nothing now.
But if they did something to her again, he would take action.
Nearly three hours later, the plane they took landed at Beijiang Airport.
After getting off the plane, the two rushed to the cultivation base.
“OH NO! She disappeared!”
Meanwhile, a loud shout suddenly sounded in the quadrangle courtyard of the He family, located in Lakeside Garden in the capital.
When they heard the commotion, the people in the other rooms at the quadrangle courtyard immediately jumped out.
“What’s going on?”
He Xue’s grandfather, dressed in a military coat, came out of the principal room and bellowed with a gloomy face.
“I don’t know.”
The bodyguard outside the door said blankly, “According to Second Master’s instructions, I opened the door every three hours to check if Miss He was all right. But when I opened the door just now, I found that she was gone.”
He Xue’s grandfather suddenly became anxious, as he scurried into the room. He looked around and found that everything in the room was intact. The door had been locked from the outside, so she couldn’t open it from the inside.
In this case, how did He Xue escape?
Before long, the sixth-class Martial Superior and several third-class or fourth-class Martial Superiors arrived.
“How could there be any supernatural event occurring within the He family?”
Old master He was furious.
Soon, the other He family members also got up and rushed over.
When they found He Xue had disappeared from such a well-guarded room, everyone suddenly panicked.
“Go and check the surveillance video. I’d like to see how she escaped.”
Old master He ordered angrily.
After they finished watching the surveillance video, they found nothing unusual. All was quiet throughout the whole night and nothing untoward happened at all.
He Xue seemed to have disappeared into thin air.
The group of people gathered in the room where He Xue had been locked up, their faces particularly gloomy.
“How could she vanish without triggering even the slightest alarm?”
They tried all kinds of methods but were still unable to find any information. Old master He suddenly became as restless as an ant on a hot pan.
“Old master He.”
The sixth-class Martial Superior carefully observed the room and said, “If I guess correctly, the person who was able to take her away so surreptitiously from such a well-guarded room must be an expert.”
Old master He’s brows furrowed as he said quickly, “Where’s that expert? I don’t care about how she escaped. I just want to know where she is. Find her immediately!”
“Dad, don’t get overexcited.”
Second Uncle who was clad in pajamas said, “Whether someone came to save her or she left by herself, she could only choose to return to her current company. After all, with her responsible work attitude, she would not walk away from those important tasks in her charge. I will immediately send someone to inquire about her whereabouts. After some investigation, we should get some news soon.”
“Dad, we found her.”
At noon the next day, Second Uncle rushed into the main room of the quadrangle courtyard and said excitedly to the old master, “I was right. She has indeed returned to their company’s cultivation base in Beijiang.”
Old master He, sitting on the wooden chair, slapped the armrest and said, “She really escaped there!”
“Dad, leave it to me.”
He Chengling, the Second Uncle of the He family, said, “I’ll go with the experts of our family. When we catch her, I’ll bring her back forcibly.”
“Well, that’s the only way.”
Old master He nodded.
He Chengling waved his hand and said to the sixth-class Martial Superior and a few third- and fourth-class Martial Superiors, “Follow me to Beijiang.”
The sixth-class Martial Superior shouted and said, “Second Master, I’m afraid we have to first go to the Green-shade Region and take some family experts with us. The mysterious person who got Miss He out of the room without us noticing must be an expert, so we can’t take her away without extra support.”
He Chengling nodded and said, “Then I’ll go to Beijiang first. I’ll meet you there.”
The sixth-class Martial Superior nodded.
Without any further delay, He Chengling got on the plane to Beijiang.
In the meantime, those experts from the Green-shade Zhu family also set off for Beijiang.
Upon his arrival in Beijiang, He Chengling first inquired about the situation and confirmed the location of the cultivation base. Then he went to the local police station with the experts from the Green-shade Zhu family, who arrived slightly later than him.
“I want to report a crime.”
Walking into the police station, He Chengling came straight to the point.
A policeman immediately came up to receive him.
“I suspect that someone in the Desert Cistanche cultivation base of the Renyi Group has illegally detained my niece He Xue!”
He Chengling said.
When the policeman heard this, he immediately frowned and asked.
“The Renyi Group, the Desert Cistanche cultivation base!”
He Chengling repeated.
When the policeman heard the address, he repeatedly shook his head and said, “Don’t talk nonsense. That area is not under our jurisdiction. It’s a restricted military zone. Do you know what it means?”
He Chengling was stunned by his words.
“A restricted military zone?
“Isn’t that a cultivation base?
“Why was it a restricted military zone?”
“All right, all right. If there’s nothing else, please leave and don’t make any trouble.”
The policeman waved his hand and asked them to leave.
He Chengling had no choice but to leave the police station with the group of experts from the Green-shade Zhu family.
“Restricted military zone?”
“Humph, I don’t believe it.”
He Chengling snorted and said, “Since even the police won’t do anything about it, let’s break in!”
After that, he led the group of experts directly to the Desert Cistanche cultivation base. He was ready to barge in, find He Xue, and then take her away by force.
When they were driving halfway, a squad of soldiers patrolling the surrounding area stopped them.
“There is a restricted military zone ahead. You are not allowed to enter. Please return.”
After stopping their cars, the soldiers first checked their driver’s licenses. When they confirmed that their cars were rented, one of them spoke up to warn them.
In the car, He Chengling was stupefied.
“This place is a restricted military zone for real!”
His heart missed a beat.
He Chengling could only turn his head, looking toward the experts of the Green-shade Zhu family for help.
To his disappointment, when the few experts met his gaze, they shook their heads in unison.
The Zhu family was just a medium-sized aristocratic family in Wulin. Even the top families in Wulin didn’t have the guts to go against the military. How could they dare to do that?
Without any other choice, He Chengling could only turn around and leave under the watchful eye of the patrolling squad.
