Chapter 13: If you touch him again, I’ll kill you immediately! (2)
She hurriedly climbed up the slope, despite falling multiple times and saw the donkey cart flipped over not far from her. Numerous horses surrounded it and Zhou Xiaoxiao hid behind the bushes, making her way over secretly.
From the crack between the bushes, she saw the leader of the group.
He rode a tall and sturdy horse and he wore a purple cloud patterned robe. He had slanted eyebrows and bags under his eyes, a hairpin of a flower behind his ears. He was Lin Family’s second son, Lin Bingzhi.
The moment Zhou Xiaoxiao saw him, it felt like she fell into a freezer. In Zhou Dujuan’s memory, the second master of the Lin Family was a local tyrant who did all sorts of atrocious deeds. Not only did he bully men and women, he has a twisted personality with cruel and sinister methods. One couldn’t even count the number of young girls and boys who were tortured to death by him.
Right now, he was looking proudly at his guards who were tying Yu Xingzhi up.
Zhou Xiaoxiao laid behind the bushes and didn’t dare to move a bit. Her body trembled in fear, but her heart also ached.
Then, she saw Lin Jiatun’s father and son were pushed out from the crowd and forced to kneel on the ground, hands restrained behind their backs. Lin Bingzhi walked to the young man and took out a clear and sharp dagger, stabbing him.
The young man who was still smiling and waving his hands at her yesterday groaned, falling on the ground. After struggling for a bit, he stopped moving.
Zhou Xiaoxiao covered her mouth in shock and the feeling of fright surged through her mind. She controlled herself and kept quiet.
That elderly doctor threw himself at his son, sobbing noiselessly and insulted, “Bastard! Why are you so sinister?! You said that as long as you find the person, you’ll let me and my son go! I already led the way here, going against my morals, but you dare to kill my son!” You devil!”
Before he could finish his words, the dagger slashed his throat and fresh blood spurted out. Even if he wanted to insult Lin Bingzhi still, he could only make out small noises.
In the end, he fell on his son’s dead body.
Lin Bingzhi looked interestingly at the two bodies that fell in a puddle of blood and left, unsatisfyingly.
The group placed Yu Xingzhi over the horse’s back and they galloped towards Qiong City.
When they were far in the distance, Zhou Xiaoxiao slowly climbed out of the bush.
She helped the elderly doctor who still has a breath left.
When the elderly man saw him, he wept and said in a hoarse voice, “So…sorry. I had no choice either. When they saw traces of you being here, they threatened me with my son’s life.” Once he finished this, he closed his eyes.
Maybe it was extreme anger, but Zhou Xiaoxiao gradually stopped shaking in fear. She could even feel herself become calmer than ever.
She found a piece of cloth from the destroyed cart and covered both father and son’s dead bodies.
“You two were implicated because of me. Farewell, I will take revenge for you guys.”
She kneeled down and kowtowed three times, placing all the medical items that she could use into a bag. Then, she started to walk towards Qiong City.
When she entered the city, she relied on the memory of this body when it lived in Lin Residence as a child and then she quickly found Lin Residence. She observed the walls and walked around.
Right now, if someone was here, they would see a young girl kneeling down on the sand and using a bamboo branch to sketch out a map, at the corner of the forest of the Lin Residence. She seemed to be deducing something silently in her heart and used the thin twig to softly tap the sand.
Although the girl was young, she emitted an icy cold aura that was incompatible with her age. She glared towards the front, as if able to penetrate the walls and enter the deep courtyard.
After that, she stood up and messed the map up, heading back into the city to buy the essentials.
