“How long have you known Yue’er?” Qin Tian suddenly changed the topic and asked.
Ye Qian slightly stared and then said, “It’s been a few days. Originally I was entrusted by Zhao Ya’s father to protect Zhao Ya. I met Qin Yue in the school.”
“Yue’er, this girl, has the same personality as her mother, a little antisocial, please excuse her.” Qin Tian said.
“I don’t think antisocial describes her. I feel like she is cold on the outside but warm on the inside.” Ye Qian said with a smile.
“Haha, if you think that way then it is good.” Qin Tian said with a laugh.
Ye Qian could not help laughing too. But Ye Qian did not dare to think that Qin Tian was betrothing his daughter to him. After all he was still nothing in Qin Tian’s eyes today. The saying “families are well-matched in terms of social status” was a little vulgar, but one had to admit that people nowadays really cared about it. Qin Tian was not comparable to Zhao Tian Hao. Even though the latter was from the Qing Gang, he did not hold as high a position as Qin Tian. Naturally he did not think about things in as detailed manner as Qin Tian. Also, their personalities could also just be completely different.
“It’s getting late, I should go home.” Qin Tian looked at this watch as he stood up and said.
“I’ll see you off!” Ye Qian rose as well.
Ye Qian opened the door for Qin Tian in a modest manner, letting him leave first. The two people who came with Qin Tian were standing on the sides of the door respectfully. When they saw Qin Tian come out, the hurriedly bent theirs waists into a bow, then one of them jogged to the car.
“Shanghai is very unpeaceful right now, help me protect Yue’er.” Qin Tian turned around to face Ye Qian and spoke. His words were very sincere, because at this moment he was not speaking as the leader of the Hongmen, but as Qin Yue’s father, of course the tone was different.
“I will.” Ye Qian nodded and said. Suddenly, from the corner of his eye, Ye Qian saw a spot of light from the top of a building across the street. Ye Qian could not help staring blankly. Based on his intuition honed from many years of battle, Ye Qian was certain the light was from the reflection of the targeting lens of a sniper rifle.
“Watch out!” Ye Qian’s first reaction was that they wanted to kill QIn Tian, he cried out and pushed Qin Tian to the floor. Qin Tian did not react, completely bewildered. Then he heard the sounds bullets hitting the villa door. Qin Tian’s heart could not help turning cold, if Ye Qian did not react so fast earlier, he would have died.
“At the top of that building!” Ye Qian pulled Qin Tian to hide behind the car and said.
Qin Tian was worthy to be the leader of the Hongmen, the calmness he possessed was not something ordinary people could have. He looked at his two subordinates and said, “Go take a look!”
“Yes!” The two of them responded. They carried shields as they ran towards the building.
Ye Qian did not go with them, his eyes stared fixedly at the top of the building. According to the bullet’s trajectory earlier, Ye Qian felt that the target was not Qin Tian, but himself. Who would want to kill him? The name of Black Falcon appeared in Ye Qian’s mind. The Black Falcon was solicited by the Dong Xiang Corporation, and the Dong Xiang Corporation and Ouyang Cheng had a deep relationship. He killed Ouyang Tianming himself, how could his father, Ouyang Cheng, let him off? It seemed his guess was correct. It was too bad Li Wei was not around, with Li Wei’s skills he could catch the assassin quickly.
But Ye Qian did not have any plans to give chase. If the other person was Black Falcon’s man, he believed that they already had an escape route established. Even if he decided to go, it would be futile. If it was not the Black Falcon, then he believed those two subordinates of Qin Tian would be able to handle it.
“Are you alright?” Ye Qian asked.
Qin Tian shook his head and knitted his brows. Evidently he was thinking about who could have sent the assassin.
Even though Ye Qian guessed that the target was himself, he still was not entirely sure, so he did not say anything. Of course, even if Ye Qian knew for sure that he was the target, he still would not say anything. Perhaps, if you look at it from a different perspective, this assassination attempt was very good for him. But Ye Qian did not dare to let his guard down. Even though the Black Falcon did not have a great reputation in the world of mercenaries, they were not easy enemies either. If the target was really himself, then he needed to prepare, even the people around him had to be careful, in case Ouyang Cheng also sent people after them. Not a lot of people knew about this relationship with Laodie and Han Xue, so they were probably safe for the time being. But it would still be a disaster if they could not root out the Black Falcon quickly.
At this moment, Qin Yue, Zhao Ya, and Hu Ke, who had heard the noise, came downstairs. When Ye Qian saw the three of them he stared then said hurriedly, “Back inside! go back inside!”
Ye Qian’s tone was very severe, it sounded like a command. The three girls felt the seriousness of the situation so they rushed back into the villa.
Not long later, Qin Tian’s two subordinates returned. They shook their heads and said, “Chief Qin, he’s gone.”
Qin Tian did not say anything, he only nodded faintly. He stood up and looked at his two subordinates and ordered, “Call Zhang Qian, tell him to get people over here.”
“Roger!” The two of them replied and immediately pulled out a phone.
Ye Qian also rose and walked to the door of the villa. He reached out to touch the bullet on the door, wrinkling his brows he said, “It’s a bullet from an M95 sniper rifle.”
Qin Tian looked at Ye Qian, a look of astonishment in his face, “So you know firearms well.”
Ye Qian smiled lightly and said, “Just a little.”
“Ye Qian, are you alright?” Qin Yue worriedly pulled Ye Qian over and asked.
Ye Qian could not help staring. Qin Tian sighed as he watched, “Ay, when a girl is of age, she must get married.”
Qin Yue turned an unusual red, realizing she was overexcited earlier, she quickly let go of Ye Qian and turned her head and asked, “Father, did you get hurt?”
Qin Tian laughed and said, “No. But I was lucky that Ye Qian was around, or else my life would be reporting to the gates of hell.”
“Father, don’t say such nonsense.” Qin Yue said, “Father, who did this?”
Qin Tian knitted his brows and said, “If not the Qing Gang, then it must be Wei Dong Xiang, that old bastard. Don’t worry, even though this place is not the territory of the Hongmen, it won’t be difficult to find out their identities. Yue’er, you should be careful in the coming days, and also you, Ya’er, Ke’er, all of you, understood?”
“Yes!” The three girls nodded.
