(The Real and Fake Huo Siqian (9)

“President Qin, I have something to tell you.” Ah-Cheng’s voice shook a bit.

Qin Chu didn’t speak as he turned his head slowly.

“Although I don’t know where Huo Siqian’s private island is, I… know some pictures are locked in a drawer in his study.”

“What pictures?” Qin Chu looked at Ah-Cheng calmly.

“Pictures of an ocean island”

“But all the ocean islands in the world look alike; it’s hard to recognize which one it is.” Qin Chu was a bit disappointed.

Yes, when you take a picture on the beach of Bali, Maldives, Phuket or Saipan, you’ll find that they all look alike and that you can’t tell one from another.

“But I noticed one picture was taken in a city with a recognizable landmark. I think it must be related to the island since this picture was together with the pictures of the island.”

“Which place?” Qin Chu raised his eyebrows.

“Sydney Opera House.”

“Australia?” Qin Chu suppressed his elation and appeared calm.

Ah-Cheng nodded.

“But Huo Siqian never took us with him when he went abroad. I think he has men over there,” Ah-Cheng added.

“I see.” Qin Chu nodded.

“I don’t know if the information is useful or not. The searching area still looks big.” Ah-Cheng lowered his head in shame.

“No. You have told me enough. Thank you, Ah-Cheng.”

“No. President Qin, the favors you did for me are…” Ah-Cheng looked uncomfortable.

“Don’t mention it. It’s all in the past. Take the bag and leave the place as soon as possible. Sooner or later, I’ll solve the problems between Huo Siqian and me.”

“Okay. I hope you can find Miss Huo… Oh, I mean… your wife… soon.” Ah-Cheng had worked for Huo Siqian for a long time and had always called Huo Mian “Miss Huo”.

But he realized it wasn’t right to call Huo Mian “Miss Huo” in front of Qin Chu.

Qin Chu watched Ah-Cheng as he left South Hill Manor.

He knew Ah-Cheng would never come back and get involved in the battle again.

He had indeed used a special method with Ah-Cheng; you may call it a trick or emotional influence.

After all, Ah-Cheng had worked for Huo Siqian for years and couldn’t know anything about his secrets.

Qin Chu had asked him and Su Yu had asked him when Qin Chu was in a coma, but Ah-Cheng didn’t say anything.


The reason was simple. After working for Huo Siqian for a long time, Ah-Cheng still had some feelings for his old master and didn’t want to tell every secret about him.

Huo Siqian was one man, but his enemies were many; Qin Chu was a formidable enemy and now Su Yu was helping him.

Once they found Huo Siqian, they’d cut him into pieces.

Not wanting his previous master to end in such a tragic fate, Ah-Cheng had concealed the information about the island.

But in front of Qin Chu’s gentle attack, he surrendered.

For some people, you can’t scare them with beating or torture; Ah-Cheng was not a coward, so he must be dealt with a special method.

He was almost fearless, but he was actually most afraid of other people being nice to him.

Maybe it was because Qin Chu discovered his weakness, he used this method on him. Sure enough, under the pressure of guilt after Qin Chu showered him with so many favors, Ah-Cheng spilled the beans.

He knew with Qin Chu’s intelligence, he would find Huo Mian quickly even if the description of the location was vague.

After Ah-Cheng left, Qin Chu stood at the window and said in a low voice, “Australia? Huo Siqian, we’ll meet again very soon.”
