Chapter 416: Chapter 417 Ambush
Sang Yingjie was truly an extraordinary man. He turned to the customers who were rubbernecking and said loudly, “I’m sorry for employing the wrong person and ruining everyone’s mood tonight. To express my sincere apology, I will pay for all the drinks you ordered just now. I hope you will have fun for the rest of the evening.”
As soon as this statement came out, the customers immediately burst into cheers. In a blink of an eye, everyone forgot the hideous look he had when beating up the yellow-haired young man just now. All they thought now was that he was reasonable and generous.
I couldn’t help but admire Sang Yingjie’s methods of dealing with this matter. First the stick, and then the carrot; no wonder his subordinates would respect and fear him.
With such a change, not to mention Liusu, Ziyuan, and other people who didn’t know who he was, even Mo Fei, who knew that I had met with Sang Yingjie before, was also confused about my relationship with him.
Although confused, everyone was still relieved that no more people were injured.
Sang Yingjie knew his own identity. He knew that it was inconvenient to talk to me in front of Mo Fei and my colleagues, so he just said that if I had free time in the future, he would like to sit down and have a cup of tea with me.
After I nodded in agreement, he accompanied us to the car park. Brother Wei probably didn’t dare to get involved with people like Sang Yingjie, so he deliberately walked faster than us after declining Boss Feng’s kindness of sending him to the hospital.
After all, he had just been beaten up by Sang Yingjie’s men, so saying that he didn’t have any grudge toward Sang Yingjie, no one would believe it. Sang Yingjie and I looked at each other and let out helpless chuckles, but we didn’t say anything.
Seeing Brother Wei walking straight toward Qin Lan’s car, we simply followed him quietly.
After Qin Lan helped Brother Wei to walk to the car and unlocked the car, she suddenly frowned.
She looked around, sniffed a few times, and muttered to herself, “What’s this smell?”
Brother Wei didn’t take it seriously and said to Qin Lan, “Give me the key, let me drive it.”
Qin Lan instinctively took a step back and hid the hand holding the key behind her, “You drive? Do you want to make me bleed too?”
“What’s wrong with my driving skill? You just graduated from driving school. The way you drive your car is like you want to hit someone deliberately. So it is much safer for me to drive.” Brother Wei said lightly, “Besides, I only drank four glasses of beer, but you drank much more alcohol than me, so don’t take drunk driving lightly.”
I really wanted to remind Brother Wei that four glasses of beer was still counted as drunk driving, but when I saw him reaching out and asking Qin Lan for the key with an indifferent expression, I couldn’t help but feel strange – Since when did Brother Wei talk to a woman so seriously? Moreover, since when would Qin Lan, this coquettish and brave woman, also blush?
The relationship between these two people was really not normal…
Just when I was thinking about this, a man wearing a hat and a mask suddenly appeared behind the car. What made people feel even more strange was that he was wearing a red raincoat when it was obviously not raining.
Before we could react, the man grabbed Qin Lan’s hand that was holding the car key and pushed her forward. While I hurriedly moved forward to hold Qin Lan, the man lifted up his raincoat to reveal a gleaming knife and hacked it toward Brother Wei’s head.
“How dare you cause trouble on Brother Sang’s turf!”
Brother Wei didn’t expect that someone would be waiting to ambush him behind the car, and the person who ambushed him attacked him in the name of Sang Yingjie.
Seeing the knife coming toward his head, he wanted to dodge it, but unexpectedly, he slipped and fell to the ground. I didn’t know which drunkard had thrown up next to Qin Lan’s car, but it was this pile of dirty vomit that caused Brother Wei to slip over and saved his life.
Amid Qin Lan’s scream, Sang Yingjie and I rushed out quickly. While Sang Yingjie jumped up and kicked the man to the ground, I took the opportunity to pull Brother Wei up quickly.
Brother Wei was still in shock. Only after I pulled him up did he finally react and shout, “Chu Nan, Someone wants to kill me! He-!”
“Calm down, calm down, it’s okay now!”
Before my voice fell, the door of a white van parked not far away suddenly opened. Then six or seven people with different dresses jumped out of the van, holding a knife in their hands, and rushed towards us, yelling to teach us a lesson for causing trouble at Earthly Paradise.
Seeing those guys actually use his name to attack him, Sang Yingjie’s face turned as cold as ice.
He didn’t ask who they were, nor did he reveal his identity. He simply let out a loud shout, then a group of men in black clothes with metal bats and chains in their hands rushed out from all directions.
Before the fight even started, the six or seven people who originally wanted to attack us were already scared to a point that their legs almost gave out on the spot.
The advantage of numbers soon became apparent, seven knife-wielding attackers were beaten to the ground without even putting up a fight. After removing their masks, it turned out that they were all young men who looked like students. No wonder it was so easy to defeat them.
After realizing that the person they attacked was Sang Yingjie, the group of young men were so scared that they hurriedly took the initiative to confess who planned the ambush while crying.
I was dazed, because that name turned out to be… Lin Yun’an!
However, the people Lin Yun’an wanted them to stab were not only ‘Chu Nan’, but also ‘Yang Wei’…
Lin Yun’an believed that Xiao Yike liked me, so I could understand why he would want to hire someone to stab me, but I didn’t understand why he would want to stab Brother Wei. Moreover, why did he ask those people to pretend to be Sang Yingjie’s men?
Could it be that he wanted to frame Sang Yingjie, and then used this to drive a wedge between Xiao Yike and me? If this was really the case, then I could no longer underestimate Lin Yun’an. This man was not only cruel but also cunning. He attacked Brother Wei not only to conceal the true purpose of targeting me, so that I would not associate the attack with him, but also to shift my anger toward Xio Yike…
Sang Yingjie frowned deeply after finding out who planned this ambush. He obviously knew who Lin Yun’an was, and in all likelihood, he also knew the reason behind this attack. However, he didn’t say it out loud. He only told me that he would investigate this matter clearly. From his attitude, it could be seen that Lin Yun’an really had some powerful background.
Then Yao Wan’er told everyone about my conflict with Lin Yun’an. Fortunately, she didn’t take all Xiao Yike’s words seriously. She only told them that Xiao Yike didn’t like Lin Yun’an harassing her, so she used me as a shield. Both Liusu and Mo Fei knew that little minx. They knew that she was a good friend of Chu Yuan, so they didn’t think too much. Otherwise, they would definitely get jealous.
However, how did Lin Yun’an know that I would come to Earthly Paradise tonight and have conflicts with Sang Yingjie’s people? This was the question we all had, but Lin Yun’an’s underlings didn’t know anything about it. They only said that Lin Yun’an had treated them to a meal in the afternoon, and gave them two thousand yuan each, asking them to come here to ambush me.
As for how these people recognized me and Yang Wei in the crowd, the response they gave made me feel very satisfied. According to them, the description Lin Yun’an gave them was that among the people close to the white BMW, two men would be about 1.8 meters tall and handsome in appearance. When I heard this description, I was actually quite surprised. Lin Yun’an actually considered my appearance to be handsome.
Of course, they mainly distinguished us by our clothes. They said that Lin Yun’an also specifically explained that the one in the black suit may look tall and strong, and somewhat frivolous, but actually, he was very weak and easy to deal with; while the man in the blue check suit may look thin and weak, but actually, he had a lot of experience in fighting delinquents and gangsters, which was a bit difficult to deal with…
No wonder they had six people in the van. And only until this moment did I realise that the van actually parked right next to Mo Fei’s BMW…
Was Lin Yun’an following me? Otherwise, how did he know what kind of clothes I was wearing? Moreover, how did he know that Brother Wei was very weak?
I didn’t think I would be able to get a quick answer from them in a short amount of time, so I decided to leave those people to Sang Yingjie. At the moment, I should send Brother Wei, Tian Guochong, and Xiao Sun to the hospital first.
