Chapter 72 – Crisis moment! Have you seen my daughter?

The 44th warehouse suddenly fell silent.

Both He Gu and 414 had serious expressions as they listened carefully.

Outside the warehouse door, there was a faint sound of singing.

And that voice was getting closer and closer!

Although it was unclear what was being sung, it was certain that it was a woman’s voice!

The woman’s singing was sometimes sad, sometimes joyful, and sounded particularly eerie.

He Gu noticed that 414, who always had a fierce expression, now looked anxious and uneasy as he stood at the warehouse door, looking around.

“Can’t you hear it?! A woman is singing!”

414 anxiously retreated back into the warehouse, even behind He Gu.

He Gu remembered the rules and, even though he had heard the singing, he firmly denied it, saying, “I didn’t hear anything. I don’t know what you’re talking about!”

Despite his words, He Gu discreetly took two steps back.

First, the singing was indeed eerie, and 414’s abnormal reaction made He Gu feel uneasy.

Second, having 414 stand behind him made He Gu uneasy.

But at this moment, 414 seemed completely unaware of He Gu’s movements, his eyes filled with unmistakable anxiety. “No! Something’s not right! Someone is singing! She’s coming this way!”

414 was completely unable to contain himself, panicking like a child of over two hundred pounds, with even cold sweat seeping from his forehead.

Seeing him in this state, He Gu felt uneasy as well.

Although He Gu firmly denied hearing the singing, he had indeed heard it. The singing was moving towards them, and getting closer!

The sound had even reached the outside of the warehouse door!

In addition to the eerie singing, He Gu also heard the sound of high heels on the ground.

A woman was singing and walking towards Warehouse 44!

He Gu’s heart couldn’t help but beat a little faster. After a moment’s thought, he picked up a wrench from the table, and with his left hand, he reached into his pocket and gripped the blade of a scalpel, staring intently at the door.

“Click, click, click…”

The sound of high heels on the concrete floor approached along with the singing.

A few seconds later, a woman walked into Warehouse 44.

At the sight of this woman, He Gu was stunned.

She was an extremely beautiful woman.

With long black hair and a mature and charming demeanor, she looked to be in her thirties, not young, but with a touch of maturity and charm.

Of course, what stunned He Gu was not her appearance.

It was the fact that the woman was wearing a red dress.

“Ah! It’s her! She’s here!”

At the sight of the woman, 414 let out a pig-like scream, stumbling back a few steps and bumping into the wall, frantically waving his hands.

At this point, He Gu didn’t have time to pay attention to 414’s actions. After realizing that the woman was wearing a red dress, He Gu’s scalp tingled, and he hurriedly stepped back to press his back against the wall.

However, at that moment, 414 suddenly went crazy and grabbed He Gu from behind, pulling him in front of himself, shouting frantically, “Don’t look for me! Don’t look for me!”

“Damn it!”

Caught off guard, He Gu was locked in place by 414 from behind and couldn’t struggle free at all!

As the woman sang and turned to look at He Gu, her singing abruptly stopped, and a look of surprise burst into her eyes.

“Have you seen my daughter?”

The woman in red spoke softly.

He Gu’s scalp tingled, and he quickly avoided her gaze, struggling violently.

But 414, with his two hundred pounds of flesh and being a longer-serving employee than He Gu, had an unexpectedly strong grip!

He Gu exerted all his strength, but couldn’t move an inch, even though he frantically elbowed 414’s ribs and stomped on his toes with his heel. It was as if 414 couldn’t feel anything, and he held He Gu tightly in front of himself, repeating incoherently, “Don’t look for me… Don’t look for me…”

Seeing the woman in red approaching, He Gu panicked.

The next moment, He Gu’s left hand reached into his pocket and pinched a sharp scalpel blade between his fingers, slashing backwards without hesitation.


The next second, 414 behind him let out a scream, and his grip on He Gu’s hands instantly loosened, and he fell to the ground.

He Gu managed to break free and quickly pressed his back against the wall, then took out a walkie-talkie and pressed the red button on top.

Only then did He Gu breathe a sigh of relief and glance at 414.

At this moment, 414’s face was pale, and he was hunched over, clutching his lower body and rolling back and forth, wailing in pain.

He Gu only now noticed that 414’s crotch was already a deep red, and his pants were stained with a large patch of blood.

Did he… cut himself just now?

He Gu shook his head and didn’t continue thinking about it.

In that situation just now, it was clear that 414 wanted He Gu to be the scapegoat.

At this point, there was no need to worry about being humane or ethical.

Leaning against the wall, He Gu immediately disappeared from the woman’s sight.

At the same time, the woman in red looked down at 414, who was wailing and rolling on the ground, and repeated, “Have you seen my daughter?”

At this point, 414 was too busy wailing with his eyes closed to say a word.

After waiting for a few seconds, the woman suddenly lifted 414 up from the ground.

A slender and delicate-looking woman, she lifted the over two hundred pounds of 414 from the ground with one hand, a scene that was full of incongruity.Immediately after, He Gu saw 414 cease his agonized screams, his complexion turning into the ashen gray of a corpse, standing there with a vacant stare.

The next moment, the woman in red climbed onto 414’s back with a smile, gesturing for him to carry her.

“Let’s go, take me to find my daughter,” the woman in red said softly.

The following instant, 414 began to move stiffly, carrying the woman in red forward like a walking corpse, staggering out of the storeroom.

It wasn’t until 414 and the woman in red disappeared outside the door that He Gu finally let out a long breath.

He Gu wiped the beads of sweat from his forehead, still feeling the aftereffects of fear. If he hadn’t managed to break free from 414’s grasp just now, it would have been him carrying the woman in red away, wouldn’t it?

With this thought, He Gu felt a small sense of relief. Given 414’s condition, it was highly likely he wouldn’t be coming back, right?

In that case, not only had he averted a crisis, but he had also incidentally dealt with the obstacle that was 414!

But then, He Gu began to worry slightly. With 414 gone, would his supervisor send an even more troublesome new colleague his way?

As He Gu pondered this, hurried footsteps came from outside the door, and the supervisor rushed in…
