Thirty kilometers north of Feiniao City was a villa, which was also the Lin Group’s property.
The place normally had few people. Most of them had come for vacation. It was quite an attractive spot since it was close to the sea, with a beach nearby.
It was only afternoon. Warm sunlight shone upon the sand. The beach flickered in a golden-yellow, forming an elegant view together with the reflecting light on the surface of the sea.
However, at one corner of the beach, a woman fell to the ground holding a phone in her hand. She was sobbing in overwhelming grief!
In recent years, Lin Qi had finally walked out of the despair that had haunted her for three years when her son Xiao Di recently reached the age of one. His innocent smile was the most effective medicine for her.
However, last night, she suddenly thought of her first child Xiao Jin, who was still missing. In order to cherish the memory of her first child, she brought Xiao Di to the place where she was deeply hurt in the past. Little did she know, she would experience the same mental breakdown again!
“Calm down, you have to calm down, listen to me!” Lin Junxian’s voice came from the other end of the phone.
“How can I even calm down, my…my Xiao Di, my son!”
“Do you want anything bad to happen to Xiao Di? He has just gone missing, we might have time still. If you really want to save Xiao Di, calm down and tell me what happened immediately!” said Lin Junxian.
The sobbing woman finally recovered slightly after hearing the words.
Xiao Di was all she had. She would never let anything take her kid away.
Lin Qi managed to collect her thoughts in a few seconds. She immediately told Lin Junxian every possible detail of the incident!
“Alright, I’ll send someone over to pick you up. Find somewhere safe and wait there,” said Lin Junxian.
“Brother, you have to save Xiao Di. I beg you, I’m begging you!” Lin Qi started crying again.
Inside the meeting room, Lin Junxian’s face twitched. His eyes were bloodshot too after hearing his cousin’s voice.
He took a deep breath and said with a slightly trembling voice, “I already owe you once, I will never let it happen again, never!”
Ending the call, Lin Junxian’s heavy breathing echoed in the meeting room.
The woman’s cry gave everyone’s heart a heavy blow, especially when they recalled that more than a hundred families were going through the same thing…
“It seems like the Scarlet Soaring Demons like to eat the infants alive,” Mo Fan broke the silence.
“Is there something wrong with you? Did you really have…have to mention it now?!” snapped Gong Yu.
“You’re the only one with a sense of justice here! According to how she described it, the infant was snatched away by a Sea Monkey. The Sea Monkeys must be offering the children to the Scarlet Soaring Demons, and they like to eat them alive, which means the kid would still be alive when the Sea Monkey is bringing him to the Scarlet Soaring Demons. If we can hunt the Sea Monkey down, we can bring back the kid alive!” exclaimed Mo Fan.
“Mo Fan is right, the Sea Monkey has sneaked into the safe zone. It would be extremely cautious when leaving it, which means we still have time!” said Nanyu.
“By the way, Mr. Lin, ask your men to take your cousin to report the case, but don’t tell them that the kid was snatched away by a Sea Monkey. Just say that he’s missing…” said Mo Fan.
“What do you mean?” Lin Junxian was confused.
His cousin clearly said that her son was taken away by a Sea Monkey. Why would they cover it up?
“Telling the truth won’t help. The government already knew the Sea Monkeys are responsible for the missing infants, so they won’t bother doing anything, but we can use this chance to lure our target out. Therefore, we hope that she can lend us a hand, to serve justice on behalf of her son…” said Mo Fan.
Lin Junxian felt ridiculous when he heard the words, yet on second thought, it was somewhat reasonable.
If they did not find out the truth soon, more people would fall victim, just like his cousin! If only he managed to find the culprit when his nephew Xiao Jin went missing, the same tragedy would not happen again. Following his emotions would simply result in more pain!
“Alright, I’ll go now,” Lin Junxian nodded.
“Humph, I’ll find the culprit and tear the person into pieces!” said Jiang Yu coldly.
“Leave Xiao Di to us, we’ll save him before the Sea Monkey reaches the Scarlet Soaring Demons!” said Mo Fan seriously.
Lin Junxian looked at Mo Fan’s determined gaze and took a deep breath.
“Save my nephew, I’m willing to do anything to repay your kindness…” said Lin Junxian.
“It’s fine, if we really stand by and do nothing, we’re no different than those human-eating creatures!” said Mo Fan.
Lin Junxian left in a hurry. Jiang Yu and Mu Tingying made their way to the respective departments, waiting for their target to take the bait.
“I have the Magical Wings, I can bring someone with me. Mo Fan, we can’t afford to lose any time. Let’s head to their territory now!” said Zhao Manyan.
“Alright, let’s go!” Mo Fan did not waste further time.
Time was running short, and they were around thirty kilometers away from the Scarlet Soaring Demons’ territory. If the Sea Monkey was any faster, they would not make it in time.
The two went up to the roof. Zhao Manyan closed his eyes. His body immediately glowed golden as golden scales circled around his back and formed a pair of wings. They looked like they were forged from gold!
Mo Fan somehow felt the golden Magic Wings were a bit too glaring. However, before he could react, Zhao Manyan had already grabbed him and jumped off the building that was over fifty floors tall…
“Since when did you own Magical Wings?” Mo Fan asked as they were falling.
“I, Zhao Manyan, have nothing but money,” replied Zhao Manyan immodestly.
“You will have some conscience after we save the kid,” said Mo Fan.
“But, can we make it in time?” said Zhao Manyan.
“Of course!” declared Mo Fan firmly.
Zhao Manyan’s golden wings slowly extended as they fell to the thirtieth floor along the steel glass. He glided across the sky above the buildings of Feiniao City…
The Lin’s Building was a lot taller than the surrounding structures, allowing Zhao Manyan to kick start their flight with great momentum, and they flew toward the ocean at high speed!
