Chapter 24.2

 

Mo Zhen filled his mouth with a small bite of fish, ignoring his taunts. Xiang Yunze no longer questioned him and simply ordered a dish of crisp fish while thinking ‘Mo Zhen’s anomaly is very interesting.’

Having eaten until he was half full, Mo Zhen finally felt that he could talk business.

“Yunze, what are you looking for today?”

Xiang Yunze stopped moving his chopsticks, not surprised that Mo Zhen knew that he had something on his mind.. From primary school to now, they have long cultivated a subtle tacit understanding, even if they had been separated for several years, this tacit understanding did not change.

Xiang  Yunze picked up a napkin and wiped his mouth. His tone was very serious as he said, “Mo Zhen, I intend to take a trip to the United States.

Mo Zhen was slightly surprised a moment, “And what about the Li family’s little gir?”

“Well,” Yunze nodded and began, “I contacted a few friends in the United States, and they might have a way to treat Li Yan.”

Mo Zhen looked up while frowning slightly. He thought about a lot of things, but in the end only made a noise of agreement.

The two proceeded to eat until seven o’ clock. Mo Zhen waited and accepted his specially prepared crispy fish food box while Xiang Yunze walked to the elevator.

When the elevator door opened, there were two young women standing and talking quietly. Upon seeing Mo Zhen, the two were stunned for a moment before both parties politely nodded at each other.

Xiang Yunze, who was accustomed to seeing this every time people came upon  Mo Zhen, stepped calmly into the elevator. Mo Zhen followed behind him as he smoothly pressed the button to close the elevator door.

The elevator was quiet for a while, and the two women continued to talk about the topic that had just been interrupted. Although they spoke softly, in this closed space they could be  heard clearly.

“Last night, I heard it again, it really scared me!” The woman lowered her voice slightly and said, “Right when I was walking near the music fountain, I even thought it might’ve been Venus talking! “

(TN: Venus statue on the music fountain, Venus- goddess of Love in Roman Mythology)

Mo Zhen’s eyebrows moved, quietly listening to the two talk.

“I also heard my sister say that your villa’s area is really remote, she does not dare to drive home after dark.” The voice of the other lady was even more terrified than her friend, the entire atmosphere around her was very tight and stressed. “Also, I heard her say that recently many cats in the neighborhood have gone missing, when she didn’t see her cat, Snowball, for days, the police told her that it might have been done by the ferocious cat gang in the neighborhood, but my sister said it was a ghost.”

“Don’t say that, you’re giving me goosebumpsp!” The woman’s voice faded as the elevator doors opened. In the spirit of true gentleman, Xiang Yunze and Mo Zhen turned sideways at the same time so that the two women could exit first.

The two women smiled and said thank you. After they were gone, only then did saw Mo Zhen lift his feet out of the elevator.

“Isn’t there a musical fountain with a Venus statue at the villa where you live?” Yunze asked on the way to the parking lot as he looked at the two women walking in the opposite direction.

“En.” Mo Zhen’s face did not look very good. Since Ah Yao came into his house, he almost always arrived home before dark on time, there was no way he would know if there were any ghosts flying around in the neighborhood. – well, not counting the one in his family, but the subject that he was most worried about was the cat gang group the police were talking about.

“Yunze, I have to go back.” Mo Zhen quickened his pace. As Yunze moved to stop him so that he could  go with him to see, the phone rang.

The call was from Chen Qingyang. She would not call him for fun in her spare time, if she ever called him, it was almost definite that something serious had happened to Li Yan. Slowing down his steps after he tried to catch up to Mo Zhen, Xiang Yunze stopped in the corridor and picked up his phone, “What’s wrong?”

“Xiang Yunze! Doctor said that the situation is urgent., I don’t know the specifics but, in short, you should get to the hospital quickly!”

Cheng Qingyang was speaking quickly- her voice extremely anxious. Frowning, Yunze said into the phone: “I’ll be there.”

Hanging up the phone, Yunze looked toward the corridor. Mo Zhen had disappeared without a trace.

Mo Zhen took the car and went straight to the villa area, after half an hour he parked the Land Rover in the garage. Usually upon his return, Mo Zhen would always find Ah Yao joyfully jumping up to greet him, but today after opening the door,  he did not see the kitten’s flattering figure.

Mo Zhen could not help but scrunch up his eyebrows, he did not even change his shoes and started to search around the house for Ah Yao. The place was empty where she could usually be found lying on her tummy in the sun,  and even the computer was still the way that Mo Zhenhad  left it.

Mo Zhen went to the kitchen, opened the refrigerator door and called inside, “Ah Yao?”

No response. It seems that it is not stupid enough to run into the refrigerator.

So where did she go?

The woman’s conversation in the elevator abruptly echoed in his ear, he could feel a bad premonition coming near.

 

Ah Yao where u @???

      Am I the only one thinking that they are one and the same. In fact, I’m sure of that.
