Everyone was in the same circle. In this newly opened casino, there were indeed many gamblers who recognized Black Panther. At least they could recognize Black Panther’s Bentley Continental and his license plate.
But, Liu Zixing got in Brother Black Panther’s car for a while and got off safely. Brother Black Panther brought his men away without saying a word too.
“I saw it. It seems Liu Zixing gave Black Panther a cheque. It should be the one he asked this casino to prepare.”
“With that said, he had expected Black Panther to stop him outside?”
“The wall has ears. Black Panther has long issued a bounty on Liu Zixing. Maybe, someone here told Black Panther for the bounty.”
“Yes, but this casino is quite interesting. The casino can be so generous if it loses money. Tsk tsk, I started to wonder who is the boss behind.”
“Yeah, you won’t expect to retrieve the money back from Black Panther’s pocket. En, this place is nice. You can play everything here. You will be safe as long as you are at the place. Don’t you see Black Panther reluctant to barge in with his men? ”
Fengshan heard the news from the employees. A smile appeared on his face involuntarily. As the third lady thought, this was indeed an excellent opportunity to build a reputation. After this, Four Seasons Clubhouse had temporarily established a firm foothold in this city. In the future, steady growth would ensure profit.
With this thought in mind, losing a few hundred million was not a big deal. Of course, it was because of the third lady.
“Director, I didn’t expect this Black Panther to stay low. Knowing that Liu Zixing has won so much, he just took his cut and left.”
Fengshan sneered and said, “It proves that this guy is difficult to deal with in the future. He isn’t reckless. Even if we go back to the past, Black Panther is the local tyrant. We as the foreign entity will have a conflict with him.”
“Are we doing nothing to Liu Zixing?” The subordinate frowned.
“I’m almost off work.” Fengshan waved his hand, “Let Ah Jie handle the casino matters. Anything else, you handle it on your own. Think of your limits and help our brothers to have some benefits.”
As Fengshan spoke, he smiled indifferently and pushed the door to leave. The subordinates watched Fengshan go with passion in his eyes. The subordinate already understood what Fengshan said.
Look out for the brother’s gain?
Naturally, they could claim it from the official account. Of course, Fengshan would still attain the greatest benefit.
Fengshan was a member of the Four Seasons Group. He came here to serve as the director. It was equivalent to the duke system in the medieval era. A rank with many benefits to gain.
In terms of Fengshan’s boss, as long as the account was neat with the profit not hurt, the busy third lady would not find out about it even in ten or eight years.
Even if she found out, she would probably acquiesce it. The underlings she gathered weren’t quite united. If they were not well off, no one would be willing to work hard for her.
Besides, the third lady needed to establish prestige. For a person like Liu Zixing, who gambled fanatically, who knows if he had no other debts besides Black Panther? No one felt surprised, even if he died on the street.
Every man for himself and the Devil take the hindmost. The gambling industry involved a chain of interlocking interests.
“Do it.” He made a call and left with a sneer.
In their attempt to escape, Hou Chen Yuhan was already sweating and had difficulty breathing. She was just an ordinary person with limited physical strength. As for Liu Zixing, he was also panting.
“You… why didn’t you just… go directly to the hotel…?”
Liu Zixing didn’t know the origin of the people who caught up from behind; they were persistent.
“We shouldn’t go back…” Liu Zixing gasped and said, “It will be even worse to go back.”
“How do you know?”
“Intuition.” Liu Zixing told Hou Chen Yuhan directly without looking back, “I have such a hunch. As long as it’s not more than half-past one in the morning, I believe my hunch!”
The two quickly hid in an alley and just stopped. Hou Chen Yuhan could not support herself, leaning back on the wall, holding her bag, and directly slumped on the ground. Since graduation, she had not run more than two hundred meters.
It was inexplicable to be under a relentless pursuit on the street like this tonight.
“I can’t do it… I can’t move anymore.” Hou Chen Yuhan looked at Liu Zixing in horror. She wanted him to bring her out of the clubhouse. However, she just jumped from one fire pit into another, “Do you want to call the police? Right now, my cell phone has no battery.”
“We can’t call the police.” Liu Zixing put his hand on the wall and rested. “This is the new development zone. The police station here is quite messy.”
The city bureau could be upright, but Liu Zixing heard much news about the police in his branch. There had been several guys who deliberately went in to avoid Black Panther’s debts previously, but they still suffered a bad fate.
Black Panther also could get someone out of the police station. The one pursuing them should have the same capability too.
“Your ears!” Hou Chen Yuhan suddenly covered her mouth in horror.
It turned out that Liu Zixing subconsciously lifted the hat attached to his clothes because it was too hot. He naturally couldn’t hide the gauze on his ears any longer. Due to strenuous exercise, the wound opened up again, and it was bleeding.
But, Liu Zixing smiled dismally and glanced at Hou Chen Yuhan, “It was cut off the day before yesterday.”
“Is it because of these people chasing us now?” Hou Chen Yuhan was even more surprised.
Liu Zixing shook his head, “No, it’s the group of people who left previously. They also opened a casino. I lose a lot of money there. I didn’t have the money to pay, so they cut my ears, planning to send them to my house.”
“I escaped later on.” Liu Zixing sighed, “I don’t know if the ear is delivered. I should go back and take a look. However, there should be no problem. My family will not worry about me.”
Hou Chen Yuhan was taken aback. She really couldn’t understand Liu Zixing’s words, “They aren’t worried as a family?”
“Remember.” Liu Zixing looked at Hou Chen Yuhan suddenly, “Except the money in this world, all important things that belong to you can’t be thrown away. If you lose it, it will be the end. Don’t visit casinos anymore. This is my piece of advice.”
“I was dragged in. I don’t know that the clubhouse has a casino.” Hou Chen Yuhan shook her head.
Liu Zixing didn’t intend to go into it. Like what Black Panther said, excluding the gambling habit, he might not be a bad guy.
“Let’s not talk about this.” Liu Zixing seemed to have recovered. While peeking out, he said calmly, “It doesn’t matter if you listen to it or not. I just said what I should say. Run if you see the chance. I’ll go out first and lead them away. You’re unlike me. They are coming for me. Be careful for yourself.”
“Wait… Hey, hey!”
Liu Zixing put his hat back on and rushed out.
He checked the time displayed on the phone. It was the final fifteen minutes.
Hou Chen Yuhan hid in the alley. Hearing the movement outside, Liu Zixing seemed to attract the attention of those people at once. But, she was hiding here alone. Her surroundings were dim; the street lights were faint; there were no pedestrians in the silent night. She was terrified, with no courage to leave the place.
Before today, she was just a pottery teacher in an ordinary pottery classroom. She had never thought that she would encounter such a thrilling event.
She thought of her tragic experience and couldn’t help but weep.
She didn’t know how long she stayed or if Liu Zixing escaped. In the end, Hou Chen Yuhan mustered the courage to peek around. She didn’t dare to stay in this place any longer. She realized no one was around. Taking the opportunity, she lowered her head and rushed out quickly.
At this moment, an intense light came from her side. There was the sound of a motorcycle.
Hou Chen Yuhan turned her head to look. The headlights of the motorcycle were like the sun. All of a sudden, she could see nothing but the quick approaching motorcycle.
