Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heiress - Chapter 1469 - A Terrifying and Threatening Warning
Chapter 1469: A Terrifying and Threatening Warning
Meanwhile, Ning Shuqian had no idea Xia Ruya had been discharged from the hospital and secretly transferred. Ning Yuya’s sudden kidnap already had her in such a frenzy that she had no time to think about Xia Ruya.
She had been watching her mobile phone like a hawk all day, waiting for news on Ning Yuya. But since the call two days earlier to inform her of the kidnapping, they had yet to make contact with her. They also did not reply to her messages.
Although Ning Shuqian surmised that this matter was most likely part of Wen Xinya’s revenge ploy, she still harbored a sliver of hope. After all, Wen Xinya had been by Old Mr. Mo’s side all this while and had never resorted to such extreme methods for revenge.
She hoped that it was just someone who got greedy at the sight of her wealth and had kidnapped Yuya just for money. She even hoped that this kidnapping incident was just a farce and that it was Yuya herself trying to trick her into handing over some cash.
As a result, apart from waiting for their phone call, Ning Shuqian also discretely sent people to check all the bars and clubs which Ning Yuya usually hung out in, as well as everyone whom Ning Yuya spent time with. But the investigation had all been for naught.
Ning Yuya seemed to have just suddenly disappeared into thin air. There were completely no traces of her anywhere.
Ning Shuqian knew that calling the police was the wisest action at this juncture. But she did not dare to for fear of angering the other party. What if they killed the hostage? Yuya would be dead meat then.
Only at this point did Ning Shuqian finally acknowledge the reality of the situation. She was in a right panic and completely at a loss for what to do.
Ning Shuqian started preparing 10 million in cash according to the instructions in their earlier message. Having her personal funds depleted by half, Ning Shuqian’s heart ached so much that she was desperate to shred that kidnapper to bits. But for her daughter’s sake, she had no choice but to bear with this outflow of wealth.
Desperate times called for desperate measures and Ning Shuqian also sought help from that person. He had major power in Capital city and Yuya would definitely be fine if he was willing to help save her.
“Why are you calling me?” That cold, metallic voice suddenly rang out, setting one’s teeth on edge.
Fear had Ning Shuqian suddenly short of breath. “I… my daughter Ning Yuya has been kidnapped. Can you help me save her? I beg of you. I only have that one daughter. Nothing must happen to her…”
Ning Shuqian struggled to maintain her composure to make herself sound relatively calm. But in reality, fear and unease shrouded her heart and she was trembling all over from the tension. He was already extremely displeased with her after the plan to deal with Old Mr. Mo had failed. Under usual circumstances, she would never have dared to initiate contact with him, but for the sake of her daughter, she had to try.
“Your daughter has been kidnapped—just pay the ransom demanded and all will be fine. Don’t tell me you don’t have money. You know very well just how much you have taken over all those years working for me.” That cold voice rejected heartlessly.
Xia Ruya nearly lost her life to a car accident and Ning Yuya was suddenly kidnapped. It was very obvious that the big boss behind Jiayuan had a hand in these two incidents. He had already interfered too much by saving Xia Ruya, attracting the suspicions of the power behind Jiayuan. If he saved Ning Yuya now, not only would he risk the danger of being exposed, but he could also end up going head-on with the big boss behind Jiayuan.
Although the organization was not afraid of a mere Jiayuan Club, the club had been in Capital city for a long time with deep roots. It would be a rather troublesome matter for the organization to go against them. If they were not careful and ended up exposing themselves, their hard work accumulated from more than 20 years of managing Capital city behind the scenes would be destroyed.
To the organization, the most important goal right now was to develop its power in the Capital city. They could not afford to lose sight of their eventual goal over such small matters and end up alerting the enemy.
Ning Yuya was totally not worth their time and effort.
Ning Shuqian descended into absolute panic at his words. She hurriedly said, “I… I didn’t mean it like that. I sought your help as I suspect that this is not a simple kidnapping case. Please save my daughter. I will obey anything you ask of me as long as you are willing to save her.”
Ning Shuqian still had some smarts. Although she was worried about her daughter, she knew that they were already very displeased that the plan to deal with Old Mr. Mo had failed. If she stupidly raised that fact again at this inopportune time and incurred his rage, she could forget about saving her daughter. She would be lucky if she managed to keep her own life.
“It’s not that I am unwilling to save your daughter, but your recent performance has been truly disappointing. I gave you wealth and all the material comforts you can dream of. I even gave you power. However, you failed to show your worth. I didn’t pick a bone with you on account that you did your job seriously. But now you are trying to push your luck with me.”
The sinister voice brought with it a chilling threat.
Not only was he reminding Ning Shuqian that she owed everything she had to him, but he was also warning her to be content with her lot.
Ning Shuqian went completely pale. She hurriedly tried to explain. “I didn’t… I am just too worried about my daughter. So…”
Ning Shuqian’s courage at pleading for help was instantly dispelled. Her mind was frantic as fear made her stammer incoherently.
It was obvious that he had been enraged by her. His tone turned vicious. “I don’t care about the reason behind this call. But you should know… I can give you everything, so I can also destroy it all.”
Knowing that Ning Shuqian was greedy and ambitious by nature, he made use of this fact to handle her, ensuring that she would not dare to resist at all.
“I… don’t want… I will definitely give my all to accomplish my tasks for you.” Ning Shuqian went limp and leaned against the cold, hard wall. The coldness seeped through and spread across her body, making her shiver involuntarily.
At this point, there was no way Ning Shuqian would dare to beg him again to save her daughter. Her mind was filled with the fear of angering him and then ending up with nothing to her name.
Her attitude lessened his anger and his tone became more soothing. “The plan to deal with Old Mr. Mo failed. The Jiayuan Club is now making all efforts to investigate the death of Mo Yunyao, as well as the true cause behind Old Mr. Mo’s critical condition. The current situation is already disadvantageous to me. Now that the entertainment city project has started up once again, and this project is nearing its end, we cannot afford the slightest mistake.”
If not for the fact that Ning Shuqian was still useful for now, he would not have bothered humoring her. Compared to Xia Ruya, there was not much use left to Ning Shuqian apart from the fact that she could manipulate Wen Haowen.
Ning Shuqian was no longer able to speak. His conciliatory tone sounded so bizarre that her teeth tingled at its roots. She knew that she had made a colossal mistake in making this call today.
