Unexpected Second Chance at Love -
Chapter 916 Fate Has Returned
While Yue Ling and Lu Tian fell into a slumber, neither knew what their subordinates were up to in Retro.
Liu Shan's black BMW is parked not too far from a dark factory building. If it were not for the loud music and crowd gathering outside, one would have thought this place would have long been abandoned.
"So this White Eagle's hideout."
From the passenger seat, Xu Long stares out with bewilderment at the building. He had heard of White Eagle and what the group is known for in the underworld. However, he has never crossed paths with them.
Of course, this doesn't include the time he saw them during Fate's meeting since he didn't meet the leader of White Eagle in person.
Liu Shan ignores the assistant and turns to look back at Lin Hui. He doesn't need to think about his question and asks.
"Are you sure about this?"
Hearing the question, Lin Hui shifts his gaze to look out the window. His eyes searched through the crowd like an eagle, and a faint smirk could be seen when he saw what he wanted.
"More than anything."
He will never forgive the people for harming what he holds dear, especially when it is something that his boss gifted him.
He doesn't sit idly and opens the back door to get out. As he did so, he looked at the two men in the front seats and asked in a joking tone.
"Are you guys with me?"
Liu Shan laughs at his ridiculous question and unbuckles his seatbelt. He opens the driver's side door, and a look of mischief flashes across his face.
Following his words came Xu Long, who was busy tying the front part of his hair up. A wicked grin curls on his lips, giving him a devilish appearance as if he was stepping into a battlefield.
As they approached the dark factory, they closed in on the crowd of members of White Eagle. Each person held an intimidating appearance enough to create fear in others. When they heard footsteps from behind, they stopped what they were doing and turned to look at the uninvited guests.
"Who are you? Why have you come here?"
A member of White Eagle steps forward and confronts the three men. He carried a sinister aura that scared one away, but his voice was calm and not intimidating.
Lin Hui stops in front of the crowd, and his eyes scan each person's face. He looks back at the man, and all emotions inside of him have swept away.
"I'm looking for seven men. I don't know their names, but I do know they are from White Eagle."
The man furrows his brows with a faint tilt of his head. He stares at Lin Hui for a long second, then at Liu Shan and Xu Long, standing behind the man.
Judging from their appearances, the men didn't look like they belonged in the underworld. However, to have mentioned White Eagle without faltering, he can only guess these men have a strong backbone.
"I apologize if there's been any misunderstanding, but I'm afraid I will have to ask you to leave."
Suddenly, a voice yells out from behind the man, and everyone turns to look at the person.
The man had a disheveled appearance, and his face was covered with bruises. He could barely stand if not for the help of the person next to him.
He walks towards the man speaking to Lin Hui and points at the three men, mainly at Lin Hui.
"Feng, it's him. He's the one I told you about that tried to start shit with us."
Feng arched an eyebrow while Lin Hui calmly placed his hands in the pockets of his moto jacket.
"I minded my own business. It was you and your guys that asked for trouble."
The man Lin Hui had beaten up turned flustered when he heard the words. After he and the other six men regained their consciousness, they hurried back to get back up.
He thought they could get revenge on Lin Hui, but they never thought the man would suddenly appear in front of them.
Remembering where he was, he sneers, and a malicious look flashes across his face.
"You're going to regret coming here, kid. There's more of us than the three of you guys."
Feng stares at the man with a puzzled look on his face. He didn't need to ask for much as he understood the situation.
He sighs with a light shake of his head, then shifts his attention to Lin Hui.
"Look, I know there was a dispute between you guys, and I deeply apologize, but can you let this go? I'm willing to pay whatever amount you ask."
The man was rendered speechless by Feng's words. The corners of his mouth twitched uncontrollably, and he took a step forward.
"Feng, what are you doing? Are you trying to embarrass White Eagle? We can't let this go."
Feng's expression darkens, and he glares at the man. He wanted to ridicule the man for being a nuisance, but Lin Hui's voice cuts him off before he could say a word.
He (Lin Hui) had a smile that did not reach his eyes. However, one could feel the dangerous aura emitting from him.
"I can't let this go, and no money can fix this."
He calmly takes a step forward, then another. He only stopped when he stood 2 feet away from the man he had beaten, black and blue.
"You see… this man here and his friends touched something they shouldn't have. Something very precious to me."
His voice was steady, not too loud nor too low, but everyone heard him clearly. He turns his head to the side to look at Feng.
"If you won't hand them over, then you'll be making an enemy of someone you do not wish to cross the line with at all."
Feng's eyes trembled ever so lightly, and he racked his brain with everything the man had told him and the others about the fight.
The only thing he remembered was the mention of collecting someone's Fate.
"Feng, what's going on here?"
From behind the crowd came an elderly man's voice. Upon hearing him, everyone stepped aside to make a path for him.
Lin Hui stares at the elderly man who wears a black suit with a cane in one hand and his other hand positioned behind his back.
Liu Shan sees the elderly man and walks up to stand next to Lin Hui as Xu Long does the same.
All three men held their ground despite being in the presence of an intimidating group from the underworld.
When the elderly man reaches them, Feng turns to him and bows to the man with politeness.
"Boss, there seems to have been a misunderstanding."
The elderly man nods his head in understanding and then looks at the disheveled man.
"Is that true?"
Upon question, the disheveled man straightens his spine and points at Lin Hui.
"Yes, boss. We just minded our business when this punk tried to stir up trouble with us."
He can never tell his boss and the others that it was them who started the fight. Let alone the fact that Lin Hui single handily took down him and the other six men.
However, despite his words, the elderly man and Feng knew he was lying.
Liu Shan clicks his tongue and shakes his head. He looked at the elderly man and held his hands behind his back.
"Is this how you educate your men, Lo Fat?"
Hearing Liu Shan leisurely mention the elderly man's name, every member of White Eagle was astounded. Even they did not dare to address their boss in such a carefree manner.
Lo Fat looks at the assistant and squints his eyes, making more wrinkles appear at the corners. His movement was as if to take a better look at the young man.
He mutters under his breath before his eyes widen in surprise.
"Oh, I remember you. You were at the meeting too."
He may be old, but his memories remain intact, and he remembers Liu Shan from Fate.
How can he not? Liu Shan was the one who taught Snakehead's leader, Gao Jie, a lesson for crossing the line with him.
Liu Shan wasn't taken aback that the elderly man remembered him.
"I'm glad you still remember me, but there's been a little incident involving some of your men."
In the many years of following Yue Ling in the underworld, he knows all the details of each gang. Even the tiniest details do not escape him. 𝚒n𝚗r𝗲𝒂𝗱. c𝑜𝓶
And from what he knows about Lo Fat, it is said that the elderly man is quite the odd one.
Like Black Dragon's Chu Qiang, he prefers peace unless bloodshed is needed.
Lo Fate creased his eyebrows and pursed his lips. He had been in his office the whole time and had not heard any news about the incident mentioned. However, knowing that Liu Shan is here can only mean that he (Liu Shan) is not making this up.
"I see… such a shame something like this happened."
"Boss! Don't listen to them! They're the ones—"
The disheveled man was raging with anger at the sight of his boss being on friendly terms with the people after him. He couldn't hold it in any longer and raised his voice to defend himself.
However, before his words can finish, Feng punches him in the stomach.
He coughs and stumbles back a few steps before losing his balance and falling to the ground. He held his stomach with a grunt and glared at the man he considered his comrade.
"Feng… Have you lost your mind?"
He inhales a deep breath to ease the pain in his stomach before continuing his words.
"These people are a bunch of idiots."
He spits out a mouthful of blood and sneers angrily at Lin Hui.
"You said you were going to let me and the others live before collecting our fates later. Do you take me for a fool? Fate has long disappeared from the underworld. Who do you think you are trying to imitate, a gang that hasn't been around for three years?"
The man stupefied Lo Fat and Feng while Liu Shan and Xu Long blinked with heavy eyes.
Lin Hui chuckles and walks up to the man. Each step carries a deadly air with it.
"But you are a fool."
He crouches down until he and the disheveled man are at eye level, and his smile widens until it reaches his eyes.
"Haven't you heard? Fate has returned."
