Peerless Genius System - Chapter 593
Chapter 593: Snakes Have Their Paths.
“Thank you, thank you!”
Before the man left the Metropolitan Police Department, he kept bowing to Xiao Luo, Gongqi Longjing and Kimura Akino, and was moved to tears. He really didn’t expect that he would be brought to the Metropolitan Police Department by the supermarket’s security guards all because of a colored pencil, and narrowly missed being detained. His wife and son were still shopping in the supermarket. Since they weren’t fluent in Japanese, they wouldn’t be able to get around and would be lost without him. The thought was too terrifying to entertain.
“You’re welcome.” Xiao Luo communicated with him in Chinese.
“Ahh, you are also Chinese?” The man looked at him in surprise.
Xiao Luo nodded, “Yes.”
“Thank god! Fortunately, I met a compatriot, otherwise this time… I…”
The man’s eyes turned red. He had just been involved in a sticky situation in a foreign country, so he felt it was very fortunate to meet a compatriot.
“Where is your wife and son? We will send you there.” Xiao Luo said.
Since he could see that this man was anxious to be reunited with his family to avoid further problems in case they become lost, and he was free, he decided to lend a hand.
The man nodded to accept the offer, “They’re in Ito Yokado Department Store. Please take me there!”
“Mr. Longjing, do you know where this department store is?”
On this trip to the Metropolitan Police Department, Xiao Luo’s impression of Gongqi Longjing changed greatly, though he still didn’t like the pungent smell of smoke.
Gongqi Longjing didn’t say anything. After taking a deep puff, he just went straight to his car.
“Xiao Han-san, when foreigners come to Tokyo to travel and shop, this Ito Yokado Department Store is a must-visit. It’s very famous, and any native will know of it.” Kimura Akino explained with a smile.
“Okay.” Xiao Luo nodded, and then gestured with his eyes to the man to follow him towards Gongqi Longjing’s car.
After some chatting, Xiao Luo came to know the man’s name ‒ Xie Wenchang, a native of East China Province. His parents died when he was still a child and he was brought up by his grandmother. Later, he worked in the building supplies business and was able to save some money. Unfortunately, his grandmother passed away when his career was starting to become very successful. After a few years, he got married and had a child. His life was good, and he planned to take his wife and child to visit abroad. Hence, the current situation.
When he wanted to go outside the store for a smoke, he didn’t notice the colored pencil that his son had secretly put in his pocket and got caught for stealing. He didn’t even have the opportunity to explain and was directly sent to the Metropolitan Police Department.
“You don’t have to complain. In China, you could’ve just paid a fine, but in our country, this kind of behavior is unacceptable, especially a large department store like Ito Yokado which has almost zero tolerance for such behavior. Therefore, they handed you over to the police.” While driving, Gongqi Longjing explained.
From the inside rearview mirror, Xiao Luo could see Gongqi Longjing’s yellow teeth, a result from years of indulging in cigarettes. Although he felt slightly disgusted, Xiao Luo did not make any noise.
Xie Wenchang said with an awkward smile, “Alright, I know. I will definitely pay attention next time.”
Soon, they arrived at Ito Yokado Department Store. As a well-known shopping mall, its entrance was a bit like the garden of a five-star hotel. The flow of people coming and going was constant like the waves — those who were preparing to go shopping, and those who were leaving for home with their purchase.
Even before the car stopped, Xie Wenchang already shouted loudly to the outside, “Wife!”
Xiao Luo also saw a woman searching among the flood of people coming and going at the gate, her left hand was holding on to another boy’s hand ‒ about five or six years old. Both were looking lost.
As soon as the car stopped, Xie Wenchang couldn’t wait any longer and pushed open the door. Then, he ran up to the woman as fast as possible.
Xiao Luo saw the three of them hugging each other, the scene was especially heartwarming.
The woman was crying and asked Xie Wenchang, “Where the hell have you been? I thought you were kidnapped! Your son and I were so frightened. Do you know that?”
Xie Wenchang’s eyes were very red, but he felt some relief now that they’ve reunited, “Wife, it’s a long story, I will tell you slowly later. Fortunately, you didn’t wander off, otherwise I wouldn’t even know how to find you two.”
“You idiot, you scared me to death, huhu… “The woman said before bursting into tears again.
“Wife, I swear, this will never happen again in the future.” Xie Wenchang patted his wife to comfort her.
After embracing for a while, Xie Wenchang calmed down his emotions and said to his wife, “Wife, it’s all thanks to him this time, otherwise I would’ve been detained for seven days. His name is Xiao Han, who is also a Chinese and a policeman. He came to Japan to specially investigate the case of our missing Chinese compatriots.”
“Thank you, thank you!”
The woman kept thanking Xiao Luo, and then said to her son, “Say thank you to uncle quickly.”
“Thank you uncle!”
The little boy raised his head and looked at Xiao Luo with his pair of big eyes that were like black gems. He had an innocent smile on his face. It was said that children were angels who fell into the world. This little boy was as cute as a porcelain doll, and when he laughed, two small dimples appeared on his face.
Xiao Luo patted the boy’s head and replied with a smile.
The little boy even saluted at him, which made him feel speechless. After all, he was not a real policeman.
Before the family of three left, Xie Wenchang repeatedly expressed his gratitude to Xiao Luo, and wished Xiao Luo the best ‒ to solve the case smoothly and successfully rescue all the missing people.
Looking at the back of Xie Wenchang’s family leaving, Xiao Luo was lost in thought. Why did the victims and Fu Yiren become the targets? Was there an internal connection or was it just randomly selected by the kidnapper?
“Let’s go.” A voice filled with vicissitudes and harshness sounded.
Xiao Luo knew that it was Gongqi Longjing. Gongqi Longjing’s scent was too distinctive. The smell of cigarettes mixed with the stench of not taking a bath was enough to make a deep impression in people’s minds.
“We’ll go ask the underground society in Tokyo for help. Snakes have their paths, and rats their paths. In regards to finding that black SUV, our police may not be able to compete with the underground society.” Gongqi Longjing said without thinking.
Xiao Luo subconsciously looked at Kimura Akino. “Didn’t Mr. Akino say that there are no gangs in Tokyo?”
“Who said there’s none? The world is black and white, and the two are always coexisting. This boy knows nothing but a fart.” Gongqi Longjing reprimanded.
Kimura Akino was embarrassed, he really thought that there were no gangs in Tokyo. After all, whenever Gongqi Longjing and him went to a place, no matter how fierce the people looked, they would be polite and greeted them with smiling faces. Would gangs be so accommodating?
