Chapter 391: Chu Luo Visits the Duanmu Family at Night
When the two of them returned to the villa, it was already past 1 pm.
The next morning, Chu Luo’s phone rang. It was only past six.
Before Chu Luo even got out of bed, she was being held down by Li Yan for morning exercise. She pushed against him and reached for her phone on the bedside table.
In the next moment, her hand was grabbed.
A hoarse and sexy voice sounded by her ear. “You’re still not concentrating at this time. Looks like I didn’t satisfy you?”
In the next moment, Chu Luo exclaimed and scratched his back in dissatisfaction. She panted and said, “My phone is ringing.”
“No it didn’t.” Li Yan bewitched her by her ear. “You heard wrong.”
She exclaimed again.
It wasn’t until an hour later that Chu Luo finally obtained her phone.
During this period, the phone rang several times. Whenever Chu Luo was distracted, Li Yan would make her lose focus.
Chu Luo leaned on him and took the phone to take a look. She scratched his chest in dissatisfaction.
Li Yan grabbed her hand and chuckled. “Little baddie, how many scratches do you plan to leave on me?”
Chu Luo lowered her eyes to look at her chest, which was scratched red. She pursed her lips and snorted tsunderely. “Serves you right!”
Li Yan moved his hand on her waist.
Chu Luo giggled and punched him in dissatisfaction.
“Don’t tickle me.”
Li Yan’s hand turned from tickling to massaging her gently.
Chu Luo got comfortable and called back.
Anya immediately complained, “Chu, I called you a few times. Didn’t you hear anything?”
Chu Luo replied seriously, “No.”
Anya thought that she had left her phone elsewhere and muttered, “Luckily, that darned blockhead also knows hacking skills. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be a good show this morning.”
Anya had called Chu Luo so early to remind her not to forget to hack into the Duanmu family and tell them about Duanmu Rui and her brother.
Unexpectedly, no one picked up after a few calls.
When Chu Luo heard this, her face turned inexplicably dry.
Anya added, “It’s a pity you didn’t see such an exciting scene this morning.”
“You can show me the recording.”
“Hehe, how did you know that we recorded a video?”
“Alright, I’ll send it to you later. However, Blockhead got someone to upload it to the Internet this morning. It’s a pity that you didn’t see it. The Duanmu family quickly deleted all those videos.”
Chu Luo wasn’t very interested in this. She asked, “What did the Duanmu family do after they went to the hotel?”
Anya said, “When the Duanmu family rushed to the hotel, my brother had already fainted from bleeding profusely. The Duanmu family immediately sent people to lock down the entire hotel and prevent anyone from spreading this matter.”
Chu Luo nodded and asked, “Have you told the king about this?”
Anya said unhappily, “Before I could say anything, the Duanmu family actually sent someone to look for me. They even probed if I knew about this matter.”
Chu Luo couldn’t help but admire the Duanmu family’s reaction speed. She asked again, “Who did the Duanmu family send to test you?”
“The second master of the Duanmu family, Duanmu Hong.”
“Do you think Duanmu Hong knows what happened last night?”
“He should know. He told me that their family has been framed and plotted against by the Qin family recently. He even took out evidence and said that the Qin family knows someone who knows skin swapping techniques.”
“Oh… he means that the person last night wasn’t Duanmu Rui?”
“Yes.” Anya sneered. “They’re trying to fool me.”
“Haha.” Chu Luo asked her, “Where are you now?”
“At the hospital.”
Chu Luo thought for a while and felt that since the Duanmu family had said so, they would definitely be able to produce evidence soon. She said to her, “Since they want the Qin family to be the scapegoat for this matter, let the Qin family know about this first.”
Anya nodded. “Mm. Blockhead will handle this matter.”
The two of them spoke for a while more before hanging up.
After hanging up the phone, Chu Luo told Li Yan about this matter. Li Yan said, “Old Master Qin isn’t a pushover either. Don’t worry.”
After saying that, he patted her smooth and round shoulder and said, “Get up first.”
Chu Luo nodded.
The two of them got out of bed, washed up, and went downstairs.
After the meal, Chu Luo went to the villa at the back to do experiments.
At noon, Chu Luo called Anya and asked for the follow-up.
Chu Luo asked her, “How did the Qin family react?”
Anya sneered and said, “Old Master Qin brought out evidence that his family wasn’t in the capital.”
“What did the Duanmu family say?”
“They kept insisting that that person wasn’t Duanmu Rui.”
“Then what do you plan to do?”
“I’m going to catch him, of course,” Anya said. “I’ve already told Father about Brother’s explosive news. Father has already sent people from the embassy to catch him and also sent people to bring him back to America.”
Chu Luo thought for a while. This matter had blown up. When the time came, Wales could only return to his country. However, the Duanmu family definitely wouldn’t hand over the real Duanmu Rui. At the thought of this, she planned to do something.
After hanging up, she talked to Professor Tang and the others before leaving the villa. She asked Phoenix to teleport her to the Duanmu residence.
At this moment, the Duanmu family was heavily guarded. It was obvious that they didn’t want anyone to enter and investigate anything.
Chu Luo concealed herself and quickly walked towards Duanmu Rui’s place.
However, halfway through, she saw Third Master Duanmu and Duanmu Tian walking out of a corridor. The two of them were chatting.
It was unknown what Third Master Duanmu had said just now, but Duanmu Tian looked disapproving. “That Li fellow must have participated in this matter. Otherwise, how could Princess Anya have done so much?”
Third Master Duanmu didn’t like his expression, so he berated, “Be serious. You’re not allowed to talk about this matter, not even in our family.”
“I don’t believe they have the ability to come to our house and eavesdrop.”
“Don’t forget that person’s ability.”
When Duanmu Tian heard this, a dark glint flashed across his eyes. “Got it.”
Third Master Duanmu glanced at his expression and was still worried. He warned him, “You better behave yourself. Don’t do anything unnecessary… Also, if someone from the US embassy comes to take your brother away, we’ll let them take him away.”
Duanmu Tian’s expression changed to one of ruthlessness. “That’s my brother. Can’t we think of a way to send him away?”
Third Master Duanmu glanced at him as if he had something to say. In the end, he only said, “You just have to listen to me.”
Duanmu Tian’s expression turned even uglier.
The two of them walked away.
Chu Luo stood there and thought about their conversation for a while. She had a nagging feeling that Third Master Duanmu’s “don’t forget that person’s ability” was referring to her.
At the thought of this, Chu Luo continued walking towards Duanmu Rui’s residence.
There was no one guarding the Duanmu residence at this moment.
Chu Luo sensed that a barrier had been cast around the courtyard. The barrier’s energy wasn’t weak, and the person who cast the barrier would know immediately if someone approached.
Standing outside the barrier, Chu Luo smiled.
“Do you really think this kind of barrier can stop me?”
After muttering that, she walked into the courtyard without touching the barrier at all.
Duanmu Rui lived in an independent villa in the three-entrance courtyard. The house was built in a European style villa, and had probably been designed by a professional designer. The villa was actually very harmonious with this kind of courtyard.
Chu Luo had just walked to the door of the small building when an energy fluctuation that was different from the barrier came from behind.
Chu Luo stopped and turned around to wait beside a potted plant in the courtyard.
Not long after, the barrier outside the courtyard was activated and a person quickly walked in.
That person obviously didn’t know that there was a barrier. After entering, he quickly walked into the small building.
Soon, an irritable voice came from upstairs. “Who are you? Get out. Uh…”
Then, there was silence.
Chu Luo glanced upstairs and then at the door of the courtyard. Indeed, a Daoist priest in a Daoist robe walked in.
Third Master Duanmu followed the Daoist priest in.
The Daoist priest said to Third Master Duanmu, “That person is upstairs. You can get someone to catch him.”
Third Master Duanmu waved at the group of guards standing outside the door with a dark expression.
A group of guards quickly rushed in.
Soon, the sound of fighting came from upstairs.
The Daoist priest quickly waved the horsetail whisk in his hand a few times, and the person upstairs jumped down.
Third Master Duanmu looked at that person and asked in a low voice, “Who sent you?”
That person didn’t answer at all and threw something at the two of them.
The Daoist priest’s wide sleeve blocked the thing that person had thrown over and it bounced back and exploded halfway.
The Daoist priest said to Third Master Duanmu, “Retreat.”
Third Master Duanmu quickly retreated. The Daoist priest instantly started fighting with that person.
Chu Luo stood there and observed their abilities. It was obvious that this priest that the Duanmu family had found was more powerful.
Seeing this, Chu Luo went upstairs.
Duanmu Rui’s bedroom was guarded by a group of guards. Chu Luo walked in and knew at a glance that this was the fake Duanmu Rui.
She quickly sized up the entire bedroom and sneered. In the next second, she left the Duanmu residence and returned to the villa at Imperial Sky Park.
She took out her phone and called Qin Ming.
When Qin Ming picked up the call, she said to him, “Duanmu Rui has already been secretly sent away by the Duanmu family. He’s going southwest. You can send someone to stop him.”
Qin Ming responded with an “Mm” and hung up.
