Chapter 185: I am ‘The Shadow'
He'll take care of it?
Looking at Chu Tian's firm expression, Xia Mo could not help but frown. "Chu Tian, don't do anything stupid. This is a criminal case, and it would be ill-advised to incite the ire of the Zhou family. Mere hours ago, they tragically lost their son. Don't go there now. They're emotional and will lose control."
"Don't worry." Chu Tian faintly smiled and said, "I won't go look for the Zhou family, but… this golden basin cannot be washed."
After saying the words, Chu Tian took a step and walked ahead.
Seeing this, Xia Mo and Xiao Liu could not help but look at each other.
What do you mean?
What gold wash your hands?
Is he… a Jianghu man?
In the police station, Chu Tian, accompanied by Xia Mo and Lawyer Zhu, was preparing to depart when a fierce voice erupted from ahead. "Get the hell out of my way! If anyone dares to impede me today, I'll wipe out their entire family! Tell me, where is that wench? I'll put an end to her life!"
Upon hearing this enraged outburst, Chu Tian's brows furrowed, and his countenance darkened. It was none other than Zhou Jiancheng, an overweight man in his fifties, bellowing like a furious lion, accompanied by a few imposing bodyguards who barged into the police station.
Chu Tian didn't need to guess why Zhou Jiancheng was there. It was clear that he had come to settle the score with Li Nian.
Xia Mo frowned. "He's Zhou Jiancheng, Chu Tian…"
Before Xia Mo could finish speaking, Chu Tian walked over directly.
"Where's that bitch Li Niannian? Wait! Today… Uh!"
Before Zhou Jiancheng could finish his words, Chu Tian grabbed him by the neck like an iron hoop. He weighed at least two hundred pounds and was lifted by Chu Tian.
Zhou Jiancheng's face instantly swelled into the color of a pig's liver. He slapped Chu Tian's arm with his hands, but it was as if he was shaking a tree.
Looking at Zhou Jiancheng coldly, Chu Tian said fiercely: "Zhou Jiancheng, if you want to fucking die, just make a sound. I can let you accompany your son now!"
The bodyguard next to him wanted to punch Chu Tian, but he didn't even look at it. With a kick, the bodyguard was sent flying like a bomb. He slammed into the wall, and he tightly hugged his stomach, moaning in pain.
"Chu Tian, are you out of your mind? Let go! Release him immediately! You'll choke him to death!" A few police officers and Xia Mo swiftly surrounded Chu Tian, tugging at his arm and fingers, but they couldn't budge him.
Looking at Zhou Jiancheng's face began to turn purple, even his struggles growing weaker. Chu Tian then let go of his hand and let him fall to the ground.
Phew! Phew! Phew!
Zhou Jiancheng, who had been released by Chu Tian, collapsed on the ground as if he had just finished running a marathon. He gasped for air, struggling to catch his breath.
Zhou Jiancheng glared at Chu Tian, his anger evident in his words. "Do you dare touch me? Do you even know who I am? Do you believe I can destroy your entire family?"
Chu Tian squatted down, his gaze cold as he locked eyes with Zhou Jiancheng. "Destroy my whole family? You think you're capable of that? You're nothing but a pushover. I could knock you out with a single punch, you little brat. Go home and pick a grave for your son."
After saying that, Chu Tian stood up and walked away without giving Zhou Jiancheng another glance. The two bodyguards attempted to intervene, but Chu Tian opened his hands, and with a loud bang, the two bodyguards crashed into the walls on both sides of the corridor. They clutched their chests and grimaced in pain.
Seeing Chu Tian leave the police station like that, Xiao Liu quickly looked at Xia Mo and said, "Captain Xia, what should we do? Shall we go?"
Gazing at Chu Tian's disappearing figure, Xia Mo furrowed her brow and took a deep breath. She looked at Zhou Jiancheng and spoke firmly, "Zhou Jiancheng, I don't care who you are. Listen carefully. This is a police station. If you dare cause trouble here, you can be arrested!"
"Now, gather your men and leave immediately, or none of you will be allowed to leave!"
Zhou Jiancheng glared at Xia Mo and stood up, saying, "Let's go!" In a few short words, Zhou Jiancheng left with his bodyguards. The bodyguard who was kicked out by Chu Tian was supported by two people and left the police station.
Xiao Liu looked at Xia Mo and licked his lips. "Captain Xia, your little brother is a little ruthless. Damn, he almost strangled Zhou Jiancheng to death in the police station."
Xia Mo took a deep breath and said, "If I didn't have some ability, wouldn't I have been killed by Wei? Xiao Liu, keep an eye on him. No matter who it is, you're not allowed to hurt Li Nian."
"Don't worry, Captain Xia. After all, this is the police station. Zhou Jiancheng can’t move people in the police station."
After a simple arrangement, Xia Mo and Lawyer Zhu walked out of the police station. Outside, Xia Mo looked around but couldn't spot Chu Tian. She quickly dialed his number, but he didn't pick up the call. Shortly after, she received a message.
Chu Tian: "Sister Xia, I'm fine. I just need some time alone. Don't worry about me."
"Is Mr. Chu gone?" Mr. Zhu asked.
Xia Mo took a deep breath and smiled wryly. "He said he wanted some solitude. Lawyer Zhu, you've been following me for quite a while. Let's head back first."
"Okay." Lawyer Zhu said, "If there is any new situation, Captain Xia can call me at any time."
Near the Haicheng police station, in a secluded alley, Chu Tian stared at his cell phone, dialed a number. The call was quickly answered, and a serious male voice came through. "Who is this?"
Chu Tian smiled and said, "Elder Sun, you haven't contacted me for such a long time. Did you miss me?"
"Uh…" The dignified man said in surprise, "Have we ever been in touch?"
"Sort of." Chu Tian said, "My name is ‘A handsome man who doesn't want to be named, and the other name is ‘The Shadow'. Grandfather Sun, you shouldn't be unfamiliar, right?"
