(Devil’s Means (3)

“So what if we suspect him! Huo Siqian has an alibi and I’ve been keeping tabs on him. Huo Siqian’s either at the Huo Corporation or at his mansion, that’s it… We’ve been listening to his cellphone as well and he hasn’t ordered his people to do anything illegal… So we have no reason to arrest him for interrogation.”

“That’s strange then. Everyone knows how much Huo Siqian despises Mr. Xiang and Mo Xue’er… It’s weird that he’s been so quiet while people are dying and going missing.” Huo Mian had an unsettling feeling about these cases, but she wasn’t sure how to express it.

“I asked a bunch of people who last saw Xiang Xin before she died, and they all told me that she was taken away by a couple of foreigners… It’s harder for us to launch an all-out investigation when the murderers aren’t from our country…”

“They’re foreigners?” Huo Mian frowned. She wasn’t interested in the case until this morning, when Mo Xu’er was found missing. She was sure there was more to the puzzle.

“Yeah, they couldn’t even describe what the foreigners looked like, and the security tapes were tampered with. We’re at a dead-end right now…” Gao Ran sighed as he put his hands on his waist.

“How’s that possible…” Huo Mian felt the same way.

“Anyways, Huo Mian, you should go to work. I’ve asked someone to come do an autopsy on Mr. Xiang. I’m going back to the bureau to investigate Mo Xue’er’s case…”


Huo Mian was still anxious after Gao Ran left. She went back to her office and, after a lot of thought, decided that she should give Huo Siqian a call.

When was the last time she called Huo Siqian?

Honestly, if it weren’t for all the things that had happened over the last few months, she would never think of calling him.

Huo Siqian was surprised to see Huo Mian’s number flashing on his cellphone screen. He had to blink a couple of times to make sure that he wasn’t hallucinating.

After making sure that it was indeed Huo Mian’s number, he picked up the phone, unable to suppress his happiness. His voice came out as gentle as ever. “Mian…”

“Huo Siqian, let me ask you, do you have anything to do with recent events?” Huo Mian’s tone was unfriendly, and she went right to the point.

“Which event are you talking about? Xiang Xin’s death, Mr. Xiang’s death, or Mo Xue’er going missing?” Huo Siqian replied with a question of his own.

“All of them…”

“Would you believe me if I told you that I didn’t do anything?” Huo Siqian asked in a quiet tone.

“Why should I believe you? These people were all linked to you, especially Mo Xue’er, she was at the hospital yesterday and told me that you…” Huo Mian suddenly paused, remembering that Gao Ran said they were monitoring Huo Siqian’s cell phone. She decided not to bring up his dual personalities.

“Go on,” Huo Siqian said quietly.

“What I’m trying to say is… if you’re the one behind these murders and disappearances, just say so. Don’t pretend to be innocent.”

“Should I admit it even if I didn’t do anything?” Huo Siqian chuckled.

“That’s not what I mean. I just think… murder is a serious crime, so it’s good that you didn’t do it. So many things are happening to people in or related to the Xiang Family, and I think it has to do with you… So, if you’re not the one behind these incidents, you should be careful. It could be possible that you are their next target,” Huo Mian said, word for word.
