Unexpected Second Chance at Love - Chapter 914 A man came here
Chapter 914 A man came here
In the crowded streets of Retro, Lin Hui finally stops in front of the red brick building. His expression, which was filled with nonchalance, was now one of danger.
He raises his arm and pulls the door open as the loud music from inside escapes outside.
“Hey, who are you? What are you doing here?”
Just as he entered the building, a long dark hallway greets him as two bulky men stop him from going further. He looks at them with the eyes of someone without care.
Hearing the name, both men glanced at one another before focusing on Lin Hui. They sized him up from head to toe before speaking.
“There’s no one by that name here. Go look somewhere else.”
Lin Hui stares at the two men with no emotions on his face. He understood why they would try to lie to him, but he was no fool.
He scans the long hallway and then looks back at the men.
“Fate has a message for him.”
The two men held their breath at the mention of Fate. Without realizing it, they swallowed a hard gulp before Man 1 signaled Man 2 to leave.
As Man 2 walks away, Man 1 sizes Lin Hui again. His right hand slowly and secretly reaches for his gun behind him.
“Wait here. Once I get a confirmation, I’ll let you through.”
Lin Hui’s eyes remained glued to Man 1’s face, but he could see the man’s movements. The corners of his mouth raise into a smile that does not reach his eyes.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t do that.”
Man 1 was rooted to the floor when he heard Lin Hui’s words. His eyes widened slightly as he couldn’t understand how Lin Hui knew what he would do.
He was sure that with the poor lighting, Lin Hui would not see him move.
However, knowing that his movements could be easily detected, he slowly moved his hand away from his gun and set it at his side.
Just as he did this, a beep sounded from his earpiece, then a faint voice spoke from the other line.
Man 1 listens to the person without taking his eyes off the unknown man in front of him.
“Got it. I’ll send him up.”
He answers the person on the other line, then takes a step to the side to give way.
“You can go up.”
Lin Hui moves his eyes from the man and walks forward. He doesn’t give the man another glance and heads deeper inside the building.
As he disappears from view, Man 2 returns to his position and stands next to Man 1.
“What was that about, and who is he?”
Man 1 stares in the direction Lin Hui had gone. He ponders for a long second before returning to his position guarding the front entrance.
“I don’t know, but for him to easily mention Fate, he’s definitely someone we cannot offend.”
Man 2 nods his head in agreement. He has heard about Fate and has come to understand that every member of Fate should not be taken lightly.
It is known that if one were to make an enemy with Fate, their Fate is sealed.
Unaware of how much his presence intimated the two men, Lin Hui took the elevator and arrived on the top floor of the building.
The loud music enters in one ear and out the other as the laughter of men and women can be heard from all directions.
However, having no care for the things that go on, he walks to the back of the floor level.
He soon comes to a halt in front of a red door. He stares at it for a second, then without knocking on the door, he pushes it open.
A gush of smoke escapes from inside the dimply room as the shadow of multiple people can be spotted inside.
Despite the atmosphere like that of a house of ill repute, Lin Hui maintained a calm demeanor. He steps inside the room like a majestic being appearing in front of the mundane world.
His eyes search through the crowd before landing on a middle-aged man in a bright red suit with shoulder-length hair.
The man sat in the center of the room with two women seated at his sides. Surrounding him were his men and their women, as each person seemed lost in alcohol and drugs.
When everyone heard the door open, silence filled the room, and every person in the room looked at Lin Hui.
“Can’t you see that we’re busy? Scram.”
A man sitting on a sofa to the right drunkenly spat as he pointed to Lin Hui with a beer bottle in hand, as everyone laughed.
Unlike him, the man wearing a red suit whispers to the two women next to him and then scowls at his men.
“Everyone leave the room.”
His sudden words shook everyone as they looked at the man. One of the men frowned in confusion and pursed like he had tasted something foul.
“Hung Woo, what do you mean? Why do we have to leave? Who is this kid?”
Hung Woo, the man in a red suit, shot a glare at the man. He couldn’t believe that such a person was working under him.
“I have something important to discuss with our guest. Everyone leave, now.”
He would have forced them out if it had been a random stranger, but Lin Hui is not just anyone. He remembers seeing the young man when he went to the meeting with Fate.
No one dares to question him at his words as he is the boss. Each person reluctantly leaves the room but doesn’t forget to give Lin Hui a deadly glance. Some even purposely bumped into him as if to taunt him.
However, despite all this, Lin Hui gave no care to them.
Once the room was in complete silence, he walked over to take a seat in the chair across from Hung Woo.
“Hehe, Mister… ah, how should I address you?”
Hung Woo forces a smile at Lin Hui in hopes that he (Lin Hui) would ignore his men’s rude behavior. He didn’t dare to offend the young man since his men guarding the front entrance had already informed him of the unexpected guest.
Lin Hui stares at Hun Woo then nonchalantly shrugs his shoulder.
His response made Hung Woo laugh, but one could hear the awkwardness behind it. He held his hands in front of him and smiled.
“Mr. Lin, what can I do for you?”
He doesn’t know why Lin Hui suddenly came here, but he can assume it must be something important.
Lin Hui looks away from the middle-aged man and scans the room. When his eyes return to the man, he parts his lips.
“A man came here. Where is he?”
Hearing the question, Hung Woo knew exactly who Lin Hui was asking for but laughed. He leans forward and pours himself a glass of liquor.
“I don’t know who you are talking about. As you can see, many come and go in here.”
Lin Hui was not a fool. He could read Hung Woo like the back of his hand. He leans forward and places his elbows on his knees as his fingers intertwine.
“Hung Woo, do you know that hiding an enemy of Fate is like being enemies with Fate?”
He smirks at the man, and his words continue.
“Now, I’m sure you don’t want Red Militant to be enemies with Fate.”
Hung Woo’s eyes dimmed at the words that escaped Lin Hui’s mouth. He would have put a bullet in the young man’s head if it had been anyone else. However, he knew better than anyone that he could not.
Not unless he really wants to go to war with Fate.
He sighs and downs the drink he has poured. He slams the cup on the table but not enough to crush it.
“That man isn’t here. He came for help, but I turned him away.”
Lin Hui doesn’t respond but stares at Hung Woo like he is studying the man.
It is well known throughout the underworld that Hung Woo is a man who loves money and women. However, he is also a sadist who enjoys others’ pain.
Could he possibly trust the man’s words?
After a long minute passed, he stood up from his seat.
“I’ll take you up on your words then.”
He leaves the room, but just when he is about to exit the room, he looks back at Hung Woo.
“But know that Fate has eyes and ears all over Imperial. If you lie, don’t blame me.”
He doesn’t wait to hear a response from the man and leaves the room.
As Lin Hui’s figure disappears, Hung Woo feels like the heavy air in the room has returned to normal, and he slumps in his seat.
His eyes tremble like he is searching for an answer before turning his head to the left.
“He’s gone. You can come out now.”
His last word fell, and a door in the room slowly creaked open. A disheveled man steps out into view with his head darting left and right.
When he sees that no one else is in the room, he lets out a sigh of relief and walks over to sit with Hung Woo.
“That was close. I honestly thought that he was going to catch me.”
Hung Woo frowns at the man and then raises his hand to pinch the space between his eyebrows.
“Liu Peng, what the hell did you do? How did you get involved with those people?”
That’s right, the man Lin Hui is after is none other than Liu Peng. The abusive father of Liu Ye, Liu Jingyu, and Liu Jianan.
