Under such practices, Fang Linyan was growing almost at an astonishing speed. Excellent talent plus the right training methods, as well as the teaching of Uncle Xu, a famous teacher, Uncle Xu frankly admitted that Fang Linyan had surpassed him in the area of bench work. After that, Uncle Xu sent Fang Linyan to work at his old friend’s auto repair shop, saying that he still needed to be polished.
Although Fang Linyan was rebellious and very smart, he couldn’t refuse Uncle Xu’s request… Because this old man appeared when he needed care the most; he accompanied him throughout his character-building adolescence; he gave him the father’s love he had never felt before. He was really his teacher, father, and friend!
Uncle Xu passed away in May of this year. It was Fang Linyan who took care of him and buried him; he even carried a lot of debts for him. Misfortunes never come singly, Fang Linyan later discovered that he had cancer.
Looking at Uncle Xu in the photo, Fang Linyan sighed,
“Hey, old man, you are now dead without worries, but I still need to eat. So, I only have 2 choices. One is to steal; another is to go against your will and find Ah Kai. Tell me, what should I do?”
Having said that, he picked up the “Dafengshou” (Fulinmen) cigarette case next to the photo, took out one and lit it, and inserted it into the incense burner in front of the photo,
“If you don’t speak, I will assume that you acquiesce in the 2nd option.”
After a while, no one spoke of course. Fang Linyan shrugged, then he wiped the photo frame, placed it on the cabinet facing the window in the living room, and then dialed the phone,
“Hello? Explosive Power Garage? Hmm, I’m looking for Ah Kai.”
“Ah Kai, I’m Wrench, uh, it’s nothing. I’m just asking what happened to the goods that I gave you last year. Are there any problems.”
“No? I’m glad that they work well. After all, I just learned it at the time, so I’m not really familiar with it. It’s fine that there is no problem.”
“Oh, oh? You have switched to another shop now? You aren’t working in Explosive Power Garage anymore… Oh, then I’ll hang up. What? You said that your side is also out of stock now? You want me to help you? What goods are you lacking? Let me note it down. Okay, okay, ACSchnitze… lift camshaft. Got it, okay, give me an address.”
“By the way, this batch of goods is not easy to get, so you know, old rules, 30% deposit. If you aren’t satisfied, I will refund it all. Okay, my account number has changed, you can write it down…”
After writing and drawing on a piece of paper, Fang Linyan hung up the phone with a smile. He immediately searched the newly-carried baggage, and he assembled a small manual lathe quickly. After that he visited the website provided by Ah Kai to check various parameters of the spare part, then he started to measure.
About less than 10 minutes later, Fang Linyan heard the notification sound of a text message. 8,000 yuan had been transferred to his bank account. Obviously, it was the deposit given by Ah Kai. Once the money arrived, it really solved Fang Linyan’s urgent need. He decisively picked up the phone and started ordering takeaways.
After eating and drinking enough, Fang Linyan stretched out comfortably, thinking that there were still many things to add in this new home. Therefore, he simply visited Taobao and prepared to buy in batches. When he just logged in, he saw a message flashing. It was a stranger named “Customer Service Xiao Li”, and the message turned out to be,
“Dear, can you give me a 5-star praise? If you send a screenshot to share to your friends, you can get a 5 yuan discount for the phone bill.”
Fang Linyan was stunned. He clicked on the store she linked to, and then he realized it. It turned out that when he was tracking Fang before, he once visited a Crown Store and asked to check the hotel records that met the target characteristics in the last 10 days.
At first, they refused to take this order, but Fang Linyan kept raising the price until they took this order. Needless to say, the people who ran this shop also have some background connections.
Holding the idea of being kind to others, Fang Linyan simply gave a 5-star praise and wrote a few words. When he was about to type bye, he suddenly had a thought. He couldn’t help but ask Customer Service Xiao Li,
“Since you can check the hote records, can you find other things? Such as surveillance?”
Customer Service Xiao Li said,
“Dear, I can’t decide on that. I have to ask.”
Then she only replied 5 minutes later.
“What surveillance camera do you want to check? Dear.”
Fang Linyan took a deep breath,
“I want to check the contents of 2 surveillance cameras. The 1st location is the Huiji Supermarket on Qianjin Street No. 7. The time is from 7pm to 10pm on the 10th of this month.”
“The second surveillance content is from 10am to 12am last Friday. The location is Kes Coffee on Baisheng Road No. 3 that is 100 kilometers more away. It is a popular check-in location for online celebrities.”
Xiaoli remained silent for a while, then she suddenly said,
“Dear! The risk of checking surveillance content is much greater than the hotel record. If we are caught, we will be sentenced! Besides, the technical difficulty is also very difficult. Our current manpower is also limited, so…”
Hearing what she said, Fang Linyan no longer had any hope. Especially Kes Coffee which was almost razed to the ground. The difficulty wasn’t ordinary.
Unexpectedly, Xiaoli simply typed 3 words after a few seconds,
“Need more money!”
Fang Linyan sprayed water directly onto the keyboard. He was so dumbfounded that he couldn’t react for a while. He hurriedly looked for something to wipe, but he had just moved to a new house, so he delayed the reply for a long time.
Seeing him not talking here, Customer Service Xiao Li seemed a little panicked,
“Dear, are you still there? 1500 yuan like last time won’t work. We have a lot to do…”
At this time, less than 10 kilometers away from Fang Linyan’s residence, in a dark and narrow single room, a topless big white fatty was sitting next to a computer chair. When his belly moved slightly, it would stir up a wave of fluctuation.
There were at least a dozen used instant noodle buckets, piles of crumpled toilet paper and the bottles of fat otaku’s “happy juice (coke)” on the ground.
He tilted his leg while looking at the monitor nervously; dug his nostril attentively; and flicked his fingers from time to time. His logged in account was the customer service of Taobao. The name was Customer Service Xiao Li. Seeing the other party not replying for a long time, the fatty said as if he made a tough decision,
“Dear! I just asked the boss. 1600 yuan; as long as you pay 1600 yuan, we will accept your order!”
As a result, the moment he just finished typing and sent out, the other party responded with a message,
“I just knocked the water on the keyboard. I just came back. Eh? 1600 yuan, deal.”
Maybe the pretty lady you text behind the phone is also “Xiao Li”🤤
