Chapter 183: Too Dangerous
Shen Zhong and Shen An lowered their heads and did not say a word. They shook their heads and Shen Zhong sighed. “We followed the clues to B City and visited a few towns, but we found nothing.”
“But Second Brother and I always felt that someone was guiding us in circles. Every time we went to a place, there was news of that person. But when we rushed to the place, they said that that person went to another place. It was always so coincidental. We went around in circles. We actually wasted almost a month’s time on this trip.”
Shen An also echoed from the side. He clenched his fists tightly, as if he was very unhappy about being teased by someone this time.
“Third Brother is right. This time, we almost searched the entire B City. Every time we arrived at a place, the clues that we should have started to gather would disappear, and then the clues would appear automatically. We then rushed to the next place, and the situation was exactly the same. We searched the entire B City, and in the end, we found nothing. We even wasted such a long time.”
“So you haven’t found anything in a month outside, and you still haven’t found the person we’re looking for?”
Shen Yan frowned, his face full of displeasure. It was not because he blamed Shen Zhong and Shen An for their ability to do things, but because of the person hiding behind Shen Yan’s back. For so many years, he had been sneaking around without any clues.
Shen Zhong and Shen An looked at each other, and finally, Shen Zhong opened his mouth, “Dad, actually, it’s not that we didn’t get anything. At least now we can be sure that the person we’re looking for is indeed the key to that matter. Otherwise, why would they keep hiding people? Or should we say, moving them?”
Shen Yan nodded. He felt that Shen Zhong’s words were not without reason, “That’s true. A fox will always reveal its tail. We’re not in a hurry. Now that Xiao Yu is well, we have plenty of time to waste with them. I don’t believe that we can’t catch these rats.”
“Second Brother and I always feel that it’s very strange. The purpose of our trip this time is only known to our family members. I guarantee that we’ve done it very discreetly. Then how did our whereabouts leak out?” Shen An frowned.
This was also the reason why they did not continue to stay outside this time. They were not fools. Since they could not find anyone and were even teased by others, then someone must have leaked the information. Otherwise, how could they know their exact location?
“So you think the problem lies with the family?” Shen Yan frowned. A hint of displeasure appeared on his face. After all, the Shen family was a family of unity and friendship. Without accurate evidence, they suspected the family for no reason. This made him very unhappy. However, if the problem really happened to someone in the family, he would naturally not let that person off easily.
Shen An shook his head. He naturally understood what his father was unhappy about, so he quickly spoke up. “We don’t suspect anyone in the family. We just feel that it’s strange. We just feel that the problem lies at home. There are too many people in the family, so it’s not impossible for someone to spread the information about us.”
“Investigate, investigate properly. I want to see how that person, who lives in the Shen family and receives the Shen family’s salary, would actually betray the Shen family.”
Shen Yan slammed the table. The dignity of the head of the Shen family was fully displayed at this moment.
“Dad, don’t worry. Third Brother and I know what to do. It’s just that Xiao Zhe said that Xiao Yu wants to enter the company early?”
Shen An became more cautious as he spoke. He was afraid that his question would anger Shen Yan.
Shen Yan sighed. “Did Xiao Zhe ask you to persuade me?”
“Xiao Yu was kidnapped back then because he was too sharp. The people behind him couldn’t stand it anymore, so they wanted to get rid of him. In the end, something happened to Fourth Brother’s family. Although Xiao Yu is now ten years old, he is still a child. We put Xiao Yu in such a dangerous place. If something happens again, how are we going to explain it to Fourth Brother?”
Speaking of the tragedy that had happened back then, the three people in the study fell silent. They did not want to recall the pain that was buried deep in their hearts.
In the end, it was Shen Yan who broke the silence, “It wasn’t my decision. It was Xiao Yu’s own decision. I tried to tell Xiao Zhe about this matter, hoping that Xiao Zhe would persuade Xiao Yu. However, you all know Xiao Yu’s character. No matter how hard you try, you can’t pull him back. He’s just like his father.”
