Chapter 74: Proving his strength
Author’s note: [Sigh……I overslept]
Su Luo finally moved as he lifted his foot and walked over towards his daughter. But after taking two steps forward, he stopped. He realized that he didn’t have the courage……he didn’t have the qualification to face her. He had once thought that he had done enough by allowing his daughter to live a happy and comfortable life, but now he had found out he was actually an incompetent father, possibly, even, a hated father.
He turned around and his gaze collided with Ye Tian Xie. His originally blurred eyes suddenly changed and they became cold once again. He opened his mouth and asked, “Is there a clean room upstairs?”
Ye Tian Xie cleanly shook his head, “No.”
Su Luo became speechless. He sighed and then said, “Come with me.”
After he finished, he turned to walk towards the dust covered stairway. Each step he took was incomparably heavy. The two bodyguards, who came with him, followed closely behind.
Ye Tian Xie looked over at Su Fei Fei once and then got up from the sofa as he followed them upstairs. At this moment, he had met another Su Fei Fei and he had a clear understanding of her……A person that was as lonely and pitiful as he was.
The balcony on the second floor.
The time was close to noon. The burning hot rays of the sun shined through the glass onto Su Luo’s body, but it did not melt his cold demeanour or the gnawing pain in his heart.
Hearing the footsteps coming from behind him, he turned around and faced Ye Tian Xie. His eyes swept over him as he carefully scanned over his body. At this moment, he was seriously examining him. When Su Fei Fei had been rescued by Ye Tian Xie, he had launched an investigation on Ye Tian Xie, but the results that he had obtained thoroughly startled him.
“You’re called Ye Tian Xie?” Su Luo broke the silence.
Ye Tian Xie gave a tiny nod and said with a slight smile, “Boss Su, you are the richest man in Asia. Every minute you earn enough money that many people can’t afford in their entire lifetime. If the words you are going to say are time wasting then there’s no need to say them. If there’s anything you want to say, just tell it to me directly.”
Su Luo’s expression did not change, but his eyes narrowed a bit, “It seems like you already know who I am and who Fei Fei is…….From what I know, you’ve already been living alone for quite a while and you’ve almost never tried to make contact with anyone. And the fact that you haven’t rejected Fei Fei’s rushed ‘presumptuous’ request should be related to my status.”
“Ah, if I say no, would you believe me?” Ye Tian Xie gave a willful smile. Regardless of his smile or his words, they all made one feel no discomfort like a lie would, “You’re not wrong. I didn’t reject because she is Boss Su’s daughter. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have the qualification to enter my house.”
Ye Tian Xie was very straightforward, he was not polite at all. The two bodyguards behind Su Luo knit their brows and their eyes staring at Ye Tian Xie became a little grim.
Su Luo was not the slightest bit angry. On the contrary his originally tense face relaxed, “You are not someone who lies. Regardless of what your goal is, you’re willing to say everything directly…….Like this, if Fei Fei stays here, I’ll be more relaxed. Since you didn’t reject her, that means you’re willing to protect Fei Fei right?”
“I guess it counts? To be honest, she and I could be considered to have some destiny.”
In the morning he had assaulted her, at night he had saved her…….this kind of fate is not normal.
“Can you tell me a little about yourself? For example your family, your……”
“I can’t!” Without waiting for Su Luo to finish, Ye Tian Xie had already rejected him. The originally courteous tone turned blunt and his eyebrows sank.
Su Luo didn’t continue asking, rather in his heart, he began to feel even more startled. He had braved the business world for half his life, he had never met a youth as calm as Ye Tian Xie. He clearly knew who he was, but he did not care about his status. His tone was not humble nor did it contain any fear or respect for him. As if, the man known as “Su Luo” was just an ordinary person to him.
“Alright, this is your private life, I won’t dig any deeper into it. Since you are willing to protect Fei Fei, then, what kind of method will you show to prove me that you have the ability to protect her?” Su Luo stood up and stared into Ye Tian Xie’s eyes. This was the most important question.
It was obvious that he wouldn’t go against Su Fei Fei’s wishes again and that he wouldn’t force her to leave here and go home. But his daughter’s safety, to any father, it would be something that was even more important than their own life.
“This…….How should I answer it?” Ye Tian Xie lightly scratched his nose. He seemed like he was about to answer then it seemed like he was talking to himself. Then he continued to say, “Then how about this……Boss Su, the sole of your right shoe has a wiretap device in it. The bodyguard on your right side, in his left pocket, the third cigarette in his cigarette box, in the butt of the cigarette is another wiretap device. Alright, you can take them out now.”
Su Luo and the two bodyguards were stunned. The bodyguard on Su Luo’s right side had a skeptical look as he looked at Ye Tian Xie. Ye Tian Xie had not made any kind of physical contact with him and, even now, he was standing at least a meter away. But they were specialized bodyguards, they were considered to be experts. Their senses were much better than normal people, but even they couldn’t detect it……..Could a person that didn’t even make contact with them really sense it? Even more he could accurately give the location…….This was even funnier than any kind of joke.
He was thinking this, but his hands didn’t move slowly. When his hands touched the cigarette box in his left pocket, his heart jumped, “How did he know that I had a box of cigarettes in my pocket?”
The cigarette box was opened and he took out the third cigarette. Then, he carefully ripped out the cigarette butt and instantly, a small metal object fell out of the cigarette butt and fell onto the ground, making a small sound.
Picking up the small metal sheet, Su Luo and the two bodyguards were shocked that they could not believe their own eyes. They stared at Ye Tian Xie like he was a monster, as if they had seen a ghost in broad daylight!
This was clearly a – wiretap device!
Su Luo quickly removed the shoe from his right foot. Above the sole, they saw another metal sheet that was the same as the other one.
After the two metal sheets were destroyed, he put his shoe back on. Su Luo turned back to face Ye Tian Xie, his heart was unable to remain calm. The word “shocking” was not enough to describe the emotions that they were currently feeling.
Power User……A Power User with this kind of terrifying ability. Other than this, he did not have any other explanations for what had happened.
