Chapter 758: Luring the snake out of the hole (Part Two)
Bei Shan: “You still haven’t told me, how exactly do you plan to play this game?”
Xu Cheng: “Isn’t it simple? One word: kill!”
Bei Shan’s eyelids twitched. “That’s not a good idea, right?”
Xu Cheng: “Foreign invaders come into our country and get away with so much. Even if you catch them, you still have to return them to their country. By then, what trouble could they get into? The key behind this Capital Society is not the state, but the individuals. So then we’ll deal with it personally instead of putting them through the legal process. If they play dirty, then we will play dirty as well and see who’s better at it!”
Bei Shan: “Your hostility is getting heavier.”
Xu Cheng froze for a moment, then sighed. “I’m just like this. If others respect me, then I will be kind. To those who care for me, I’ll be even better to them. But if anyone harms me or my friends, then even returning with ten or hundred fold of harm wouldn’t be enough to alleviate my pain.”
Bei Shan understood where he was coming from. Xu Cheng had lost his father and then his mother, so he cherished those people around him who cared for him, and if anyone could be forgiven by saying the word “sorry,” then he would be an idiot!
“By the way, let Liu Xianming go.”
Bei Shan was speechless. “He’s been convicted, how could we release him?”
Xu Cheng: “Can you find out where Hiroshi Shitsuno is at right now?”
Bei Shan: “He’s very good at hiding and very witty. We couldn’t find his hiding place and he also didn’t leave the country yet.”
“That’s right, release Liu Xianming and the first person who will want to see him will be Hiroshi Shitsuno. Luring the snake out of the hole.” Xu Cheng glared at Bei Shan. “How did you become the Ace of Diamonds?”
Bei Shan was speechless. “I’m not as calculative as you are. We are only trained to gather intelligence and conduct assassination work, we don’t play with people’s minds.”
Xu Cheng ignored him and turned around as he went inside the house.
Meanwhile, what Hiroshi Shitsuno didn’t know was that it wasn’t because they didn’t find out his background and secret plans, but it was because Xu Cheng didn’t plan to deal with him through a legal process.
He would not have expected that the Grim Reaper had its scythe on his neck for a long time, only waiting for Xu Cheng to announce his death sentence.
However, it would not be Xu Cheng’s style if he let Hiroshi Shitsuno go this easily. He was going to make it a slow and painful death for Hiroshi Shitsuno. Now he was standing in the dark while Hiroshi Shitsuno was in the light, and he could follow the clues and climb his way up just like when he extinguished the Shanling family.
Sometimes, to plant fear in others’ minds, it’s more effective to create a fear of the unknown than to directly put a knife on their necks. They wouldn’t know what threats they are facing, nor when their deaths will come; just like when he assassinated the five men from noble families who insulted him when he was a kid.
Hiroshi Shitsuno leaned over the pool in his villa with his cell phone in his hand, and as soon as he confirmed the mission, the assassins would head into the prison to take out Liu Xianming.
But he was not stupid, and he was calculative at heart. If Liu Xianming didn’t say anything and this was really a police test, then killing Liu Xianming at this time would be falling into their trap.
Liu Xianming’s lawyer called just when he was about to confirm the mission.
“Mr. Hiroshi Shitsuno, Liu Xianming has been released. After we negotiated with the police, they released Liu Xianming under our pressure.”
Hiroshi Shitsuno was relieved.
“Bring him to me.”
Liu Xianming sat in the car, his body shaking a little. In fact, he refused to be released at first.
He knew that he had already confessed everything, and he would only be killed if he was released. At the very least, he could stay alive in the prison. However, the police department wasn’t going to detain him any longer.
He wanted to run away, but his legal team directly sent him to Hiroshi Shitsuno.
What Liu Xianming didn’t know was that he would become Xu Cheng’s bait to find out Hiroshi Shitsuno’s hiding place.
