Zhu Kai was discovered by the family gardener the next morning.

       He was completely cold at the time, but fortunately, his hands were not tied too tight, so there was no poor blood flow.

       Wang Ma was taken aback and asked him what happened, but he refused to tell him. He only said that Li Jianglin was not in good health, so no need to alarm him. At that time, Li Zhenran and Li Zhenzi didn’t come back. There were a lot of rumours among the workers at home. Some people said that Zhu Kai had tied himself up since he was already a nutjob.

       Li Zhenruo thought he would call someone out loud, but he didn’t expect Zhu Kai to hold out all night.

       The next morning, while holding a tissue to wipe his nose, Zhu Kai searched Li’s house up and down and even opened the door of Li Jianglin’s room to find him.

       Li Jianglin had just eaten breakfast and opened his eyes to look at him, “What are you doing?”

       Zhu Kai sucked his snot and said, “I’m going to find something, you can just sleep.” After that, he squatted beside Li Jianglin’s side, picked up his sheets and looked, but he still couldn’t find anyone.

       This morning, he asked the doorman to make sure that no one came in or out, not even the car, so he began to rummage the Li family up and down, trying to find someone.

       He even asked the cleaning aunt to open all the locked rooms for him to see. After rummaging through every corner, he was sure that no one was at home.

       Then he went to the surveillance at the guard’s office, checked the surveillance while eating breakfast, and made sure that no one had been in or out of Li’s house that night.

       Zhu Kai was inexplicable, where did that kid slip away last night?

       Then he began to look at every worker in the Li family with scrutiny, doubting whether there was such a thing as a disguise in this world.

       Li Zhenruo lay lazily on the armrest of the sofa and didn’t want to move. He was just wondering why Li Zhenran didn’t come back.

       He already knew what he had learned from Zhu Kai last night, but he just wanted to confirm it. When he really heard Zhu Kai say that, he still felt a little uncomfortable, and he didn’t sleep well last night, and the whole cat was not in good spirits today.

       Li Zhenruo yawned.

       He saw Zhu Kai dangling in front of him with his red nose all morning. He knew what Zhu Kai was thinking, but it was very interesting that even if Zhu Kai suspected that there were really ghosts in this world, he would not suspect him as a cat.

       This identity was so convenient.

       He yawned again, rolled over on his side and accidentally fell off the back of the sofa chair. He didn’t bother to get up when he landed on the carpet, so he continued to lie on his stomach.

       It was almost noon when Wang Ma answered a call, which sounded like a call from Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo got up from the ground, ran to Wang Ma’s feet and raised his head to look at her and “meow meow” to her.

       Wang Ma nodded “ey ey” and looked at Li Zhenruo to make him quiet. After hanging up the phone, Wang Ma told him, “Your master won’t be back for dinner at noon. There are too many things on his side. He may have to work overtime for a few days. He told you to wait at home.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little discouraged all of a sudden, he knew that Li Zhenran must be unable to get away from work now. Maybe it was possible to work overtime for a few days, but it was really uncomfortable for him to do nothing and just wait at home.

       So after lunch, Li Zhenruo slipped away as if he smeared the sole of his feet with oil.

       Li Zhenran was really busy these two days, and even Li Zhenzi added two days of overtime. Later, he couldn’t bear it and cursed loudly in the office.

       When Li Zhenruo entered the office, Li Zhenran didn’t lift his head and thought it was Hua Yibang who came in.

       Until Li Zhenruo sat down on his desk, took off his shoes and straightened his legs and stepped on his shoulders.

       Li Zhenran raised his head and smiled at him, “Don’t make trouble.”

       Li Zhenruo saw a large pile of documents on Li Zhenran’s desk, and the coffee cup next to him was empty. He was dressed neatly, but his face was a little tired, and with his foot on top of him, “So hard?”

       Li Zhenran grabbed his feet and said, “Not that bad. If I want to take over again, I have to sort out the mess. These people can’t help me, and I don’t feel at ease.”

       Li Zhenruo slipped his feet down and stepped on Li Zhenran’s chest.

       Li Zhenran asked, “What? The estrus season is coming again?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t take back his feet, but just said, “Let me help you.”

       He accompanied Li Zhenran to read the documents all afternoon. Li Zhenruo sorted out the one about the western project and explained the key points to him directly so that he would not spend time reading it again.

       Later, Li Zhenran turned his head and saw that Li Zhenruo fell asleep beside the desk.

       He put down the documents in his hand, walked over and carried Li Zhenruo.

       On the way, Li Zhenruo woke up and looked at him blankly, “You’re done?”

       Li Zhenran put him on the bed in the lounge and said, “You can sleep for a while, and I’ll call you for dinner later.”

       “Okay,” Li Zhenruo responded, pulling the quilt over him.

       Li Zhenran walked outside, and when he reached out to close the door, his cell phone suddenly rang. He took out his cell phone and connected the call, then went back to the desk and sat down.

       Li Zhenruo was a little more awake at this time, and he heard Li Zhenran say, “He went to see those two people?”

       He was stunned for a moment, Li Zhenruo sat up from the bed.

       Li Zhenran continued, “Keep an eye on him, especially find someone to keep up with the couple and see if there is a way to hide a locator on them. Don’t be discovered.”

       Li Zhenruo got out of bed, opened the lounge door and walked out.

       Li Zhenran was still on the phone, he turned his head to look at him, and said to the person on the other side of the phone, “Keep an eye on them. If the situation is not right—call the police.”

       When Li Zhenran hung up the phone, Li Zhenruo asked him, “Is it about Li Zhentai?”

       Li Zhenran raised a long leg, turned the swivel chair to face Li Zhenruo, and said, “His biological parents have found him.”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned and asked Li Zhenran, “What do you mean by calling the police?”

       Li Zhenran frowned slightly, “I’m just a little worried all of a sudden.”

       “What do you mean?”

       Li Zhenran said, “In the end, we don’t know how much Li Zhentai knows about this matter. We didn’t know if he still thinks that he is Li Jianglin’s own son, or not. So with his ruthlessness, it was very likely that he will be ruthless to his biological parents. “

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but say, “Do you think it’s possible?”

       Li Zhenran said softly, “I don’t know, but I led the couple to find Li Zhentai. I can’t see what happened to them, so I told people to keep an eye on them.”

       Li Zhenruo thought about it and said, “Where are they?”

       Li Zhenran stood up, “What do you want to do?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I want to go and see them.”

       Li Zhenran took his arm and said, “No need to rush, be a good boy, and listen to me.”

       They left the work behind for the time being. Li Zhenran drove a car himself and hurried away with Li Zhenruo.

       On the way, he answered a phone call and the one who handle told him that Li Zhentai took the old couple away.

       “Taken away?” Li Zhenran asked, “Where to?”

       The person on the other side of the phone said, “The direction is towards the outskirts of the city. Just now, in the city, we were stopped by a red light and they got lost, but the locator was still in the old lady’s cloth pocket, and now it shows that it is still moving.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Call the police and give me the address.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little worried, “Li Zhentai won’t be serious about killing to silence them, right?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “You forgot how he treated you in the first place?”

       Li Zhenruo suddenly smiled bitterly, “Actually, I also want to help him find an excuse to prove that he is not such a heartless person. If he really did such a thing, I would not pity him, but just pity myself.”

       When he heard him say this, Li Zhenran took him by the shoulders, pulled him over, and kissed his forehead.

       When they arrived at the destination, Li Zhenran and Li Zhenruo got off the car.

       This was a pretty desolate weedy area on the outskirts of the city, and you could see a large area of ​​hills in front of it, and there were several small two-story buildings erected here and there.

       A black car was parked next to it, and two people got down and said, “Mr. Li, Li Zhentai led someone to drive the two old people into the villa in front. We have already called the police, and said that someone was kidnapped.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t speak.

       So another person asked, “Want to go in and have a look?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Don’t go in if you’ve already called the police.”

       Li Zhenruo suddenly said at this time, “I’ll go take a look.”

       After he said that, he turned and ran towards the villa.

       Li Zhenran’s two subordinates were stunned for a moment, hurriedly trying to stop him, but Li Zhenran said, “It doesn’t matter, let him go.”

       Li Zhenruo turned into a cat in a corner that no one could see, then ran towards the two-story building, jumped up the window with ease, and looked towards the facade.

       He was in the kitchen where no one could see or notice him as a cat.

       For safety, he first disguised himself as a black cat.

       Today, he could see his reflection in the glass window. Although at first glance, he looked like a sturdy black cat at first glance, his face was still round and flat, and he was not at all as imposing and handsome as his master.

       With some dissatisfaction, Li Zhenruo ran inside.

       His movements were silent as he walked into this empty two-story building. Before he entered the living room, he stopped because he saw the old couple, Li Zhentai’s biological parents, sitting on the sofa in the living room.

       In addition to them in the living room, there was a young man sitting across from him smoking a cigarette.

       The husband and wife looked nervous, and neither spoke. They just sat on the sofa, and the woman held a non-woven bag in her hand, which looked tattered and torn.

       Li Zhenruo then turned and ran towards the stairs.

       He went up to the second floor and heard voices coming from a room, so he got closer to eavesdrop.

       Among them, Li Zhentai’s voice could be clearly distinguished, and he said, “Send the two of them away.”

       Another young man’s voice, “Where to?”

       Li Zhentai said, “Send them to a place where they will never come back.”

       “Tai ge, where can they be sent that they can’t come back? Apart from sending them to hell, I can’t guarantee that they won’t come back.”

       Li Zhentai did not speak.

       The young man lowered his voice, “Tai ge, what are you afraid of? It’s not the first time anyway.”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head in shock. After he heard this sentence, he suddenly became curious about the identity of the young man. He couldn’t help leaning against the wall and slowly approaching the door, sticking his head out to look.

       He saw Li Zhentai sitting on a chair in the room, and a man standing beside him, tall and thin, wearing a peaked cap.

       He had clearly seen this man. It was this man who suddenly stopped him and asked him, “Are you Li Zhenruo?”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head inexplicably, “Who are you?”

       The man smiled, covered his mouth with one hand, and stabbed his lower abdomen with a knife with the other.

       And now, this man was standing beside Li Zhentai and was negotiating with him to send Li Zhentai’s biological parents to hell.

       Li Zhentai didn’t agree but didn’t refuse, he just said, “I can’t be here.”

       Unlike Li Zhenruo, if the couple died here, the police would definitely be able to find a lead to Li Zhentai.

       The man said, “Let’s go to other places before we do it. It’s better to be in the deep mountains and old forests to deal with the corpses.”

       Li Zhentai still did not respond.

       At this moment, the man said “It’s just, Tai ge. For such a dangerous thing, you should settle our account first.”

       Li Zhentai looked up at him, “How much do you want?”

       The man said, “Not much, two million.”

       Li Zhentai sneered, “Do you think I will owe you two million?”

       The man said, “That’s hard to say. Who doesn’t know that your eldest young master of the Li family is different now?”

       Li Zhentai’s face would not look good, he said, “I—”

       “Who?” The man interrupted him and roared suddenly. It turned out that he had inadvertently noticed the black cat hiding by the door and peeking inside, and immediately walked over.
