Chapter 732: Could Lose Control Any Time
Upon seeing a police officer heading towards Gu Mang with a pair of handcuffs, Lu Chengzhou’s eyes narrowed. Instantly, everyone in the room could sense the man’s displeasure.
Lu Yī felt that the police were seeking death.
Someone of Wei Qian’s position had to know who Lu Chengzhou was, even if he had never met him. All the more, he had not expected to see him here.
Seeing Wei Qian’s expression change, the police officer who tried to handcuff Gu Mang tightened his grip on the handcuffs slightly, scared to move.
When Yu Mufeng noticed that Wei Qian was not as righteous and arrogant as before. Yu Mufeng scoffed under his breath and turned to look at Lu Chengzhou. “Brother Cheng, these people want to arrest my little grandmaster with this arrest warrant and bring her back to the police station.”
Lu Chengzhou scanned the police officers while remaining silent. He approached Gu Mang.
She had a cold expression on her face. His appearance seemed to have eased her fury a bit. But the corners of her lips were slightly lifted and she still looked extremely menacing.
The atmosphere was tense. She looked very ruthless and cold as if she would lose control at any second.
When Gu Mang smelled the familiar and light scent of tobacco, the vein that was popping on her forehead disappeared from view.
The air-conditioning was switched on in the lounge at the lowest temperature setting of 16 degrees celsius.
The men were all wearing suits or uniforms, while Gu Mang was the only one wearing a thin hoodie. She looked small and frail. She seemed to be using this method to suppress her emotions.
Lu Chengzhou frowned slightly as he placed the jacket which was hanging on his arm over her shoulders. He glanced at Lu Qi. “Pour a glass of warm water.”
“Okay.” Lu Qi took a disposable cup and poured water in it.
Lu Chengzhou put the cup in Gu Mang’s hands. Her fingers were freezing.
He said in a low voice, “Keep yourself warm.”
Without saying anything, Gu Mang held the cup with both hands. Lu Chengzhou leaned to one side and turned towards the group of police officers.
Upon meeting with his dark and deep eyes, Wei Qian’s heart sank. He tensed his back subconsciously. Lu Chengzhou’s casual gaze landed on the handcuffs in the police officer’s hand. He reached over and took them away.
Even though the police officer had tightened his grip subconsciously, Lu Chengzhou took them with ease.
Lu Chengzhou looked down and dangled the piece of metal in his hand. It produced a crisp sound. He smiled. “Who is more powerful than your Department Chief Zhao?”
He spoke in a light and slow tone, yet he still sounded ruthless.
Wei Qian pursed his lips. “I’m sorry, Young Master Lu. We are doing our work according to the law. Since the Sang family reported a case, we cannot sit still and pretend nothing has happened. We are just asking Ms. Gu… to come with us to help with our investigation.”
“Is that so?” Lu Chengzhou was nonchalant. “Is the person who was beaten up by Gu Mang still at the police station?”
Lu Qi lowered his head and said politely, “Our men have told us that she was taken away by the Sang family.”
Wei Qian braced himself and said, “Sang Xue suffered serious injuries. Her parents have brought her to the hospital to receive treatment. Furthermore, Ms. Gu has said that Sang Xue hit her friend. We need her to give us a statement. Sang Xue’s parents were very cooperative. After she is awake, they will bring her back to the police station.”
“Wow.” Jiangsui spoke in a peculiar tone. “Team Leader Wei, you didn’t say that just now.”
Wei Qian clenched his fists and looked at Gu Mang. “If Ms. Gu does not want to cooperate with us, it will make things difficult for us. Since Ms. Gu sent Sang Xue to the police station, she probably wants to settle this matter. If she doesn’t come to the police station, it will be impossible to resolve this problem.”
“Who told you that I’m not going to the police station?” After finishing the cup of water in one shot, Gu Mang crushed the paper cup and tossed it into the bin while smiling.
Stunned, Wei Qian looked at her. This was not what he had expected.
Gu Mang had refused to follow them not long ago. He had thought that Gu Mang did not want to go to the police station because she knew that she would not be able to leave easily.
Did she agree to go now because she had Lu Chengzhou on her side? If Department Chief Zhao dared to stand on the Sang family’s side, that meant that the Sang family had powerful allies too. They could even ignore Red Scorpion. Moreover, Sang Xue’s injuries were quite serious.
If Gu Mang really went to the police station, the Sang family would definitely not go easy on her. A prison sentence would be getting off easy.
