Chapter 78 – If I encounter a problem I can’t handle, you’ll come over in time, right?

After hiding the things, He Gu let out a long breath.

Then, He Gu lifted the warehouse’s rolling shutter door again, bent down, and crawled out.

After closing the door, He Gu patted the dust off his body, feeling much more relaxed, yet still somewhat nervous.

Now everything was really ready, tonight… was destined not to be peaceful!

After leaving the warehouse, He Gu prepared to go to the canteen for a meal.

However, just as he took a few steps out of the warehouse, He Gu suddenly saw a figure walking out of a warehouse not far ahead.

The person was looking down, holding a stack of documents and seemed to be checking something while walking, and hadn’t seen He Gu yet.

He Gu hadn’t seen his face, but he saw the number on his work badge: 411.

This was the supervisor’s number!

Seeing this number, He Gu’s body stiffened, and he felt extremely nervous in an instant.

There were only a few people left in the entire warehouse area at this point, and there was only a distance of five or six meters between the two of them.

As long as the supervisor looked up, he would definitely see He Gu!

Even if He Gu turned around and walked in the opposite direction now, there was no place to hide his figure, and the supervisor would still be able to see his back. There was a high probability that he would recognize him.

And at this time, if He Gu appeared here, it was very likely to arouse the supervisor’s suspicion… and might even ruin his preparations!

This wasn’t just He Gu’s guilty conscience, but he really couldn’t afford any variables or risks at this moment!

In that instant, He Gu broke out in a cold sweat.

Should he turn around and run now, gambling that the supervisor didn’t see him?

Or should he just walk up calmly, and if the supervisor asked, say that he dropped something in the warehouse last night and came to look for it?

As He Gu quickly thought of ways to respond in his mind, he suddenly saw another figure walking out of the warehouse ahead.

This was a figure in a security uniform, wearing a large cap that matched the uniform, with the brim pressed very low, covering half of his face.

Wasn’t this the security guard who was on duty last night?

“Hey, 411, come take a look, what’s wrong with the equipment in this warehouse?” The security guard’s voice was hoarse as he called out to the supervisor from behind.

The supervisor was startled and turned around, saying, “What?”

The security guard put his arm around the supervisor’s shoulder and walked into the warehouse, saying, “Come and see for yourself, if I hadn’t come to check, we wouldn’t have found these safety issues…”

As he spoke, the security guard had already walked into the warehouse with the supervisor, and it sounded like they were going straight to the back of the warehouse.

He Gu was delighted and took this opportunity to lower his head and quickly walk away.

It wasn’t until he walked out of the warehouse area that He Gu finally breathed a sigh of relief.

From the moment the security guard spoke, He Gu recognized him as the security guard who was on duty last night.

But when He Gu came in, wasn’t he still squatting at the main gate eating?

How come he was checking the safety of the warehouse in such a short time?

He Gu was suspicious and felt that something was not quite right.

The night shift security guard sat in a position directly facing the door of Warehouse 44 every night, almost like the “eye” used to monitor He Gu.

But just now, he had helped He Gu.

Was it a coincidence?

Or was there another reason?

Frowning, He Gu walked all the way to the canteen.

At this time, it was the peak period for day shift workers to get off work, and the canteen was quite crowded.

As usual, He Gu filled a large plate of food, found a corner, and began to eat heartily.

After finishing his meal, He Gu looked at the time and saw that it was already 18:42.

According to convention, the supervisor would use the intercom to call him in a while to come and serve the new colleagues for today.

It seemed that since He Gu joined, there had been a new colleague every day.

Thinking of this, He Gu didn’t bother to move and just sat in his chair, carefully recalling various clues while waiting for the supervisor’s call.

Time passed by second by second.

He Gu slowly recalled the various events and details he had encountered in the past few days, combined with the clues he had obtained from various sources, and analyzed them bit by bit, forgetting the concept of time in the process.

When He Gu came to his senses, he found that it was already dark outside, and there were only a few people left in the canteen still eating.

He Gu picked up his phone and saw that it was already 19:40.

There were only twenty minutes left until it was time to start work!

He Gu hurriedly got up and walked outside, glancing suspiciously at his intercom as he walked.

It was certain that He Gu’s intercom had not made a sound.

For the first time ever, the supervisor didn’t call him to eat together?

Was there no new colleague today?

But 414, who came yesterday, had already cooled down. Shouldn’t there be a new colleague coming to work the night shift with him today?

With these doubts in mind, He Gu walked quickly towards the warehouse area.

At 19:57, He Gu finally arrived at the door of Warehouse 44.

But what made He Gu’s heart tighten was that the door of Warehouse 44 was already open, and the lights were still on inside.

He Gu walked into the warehouse and saw the supervisor standing in front of a pile of goods, holding a notebook, checking the labels on the boxes and quickly recording something in the notebook.Upon seeing He Gu enter, the supervisor glanced up at him and said sternly, “Stand there, don’t move!”

He Gu was taken aback and instinctively halted in his tracks.

The supervisor quickly put away the notebook in his hand, gave He Gu a deep look, and then took out a portable security scanner from his pocket and walked briskly towards He Gu.

At that moment, He Gu saw an unmistakable wariness in the supervisor’s eyes!

He panicked!

A smug satisfaction arose in He Gu’s heart, and he consciously spread his arms to cooperate with the supervisor’s inspection.

Without further ado, the supervisor began to search He Gu’s pockets.

Just like the night before, the employee handbook, a sausage, a mobile phone, a walkie-talkie, a small medicine bottle, 421 yuan in cash, and a red towel were taken out one by one and placed on the table beside.

Looking at the familiar scene on the table, the supervisor’s brow furrowed deeply.

Afterward, the supervisor scanned He Gu’s entire body three times with the security scanner, but still couldn’t find anything abnormal.

The absence of any anomalies did not put the supervisor at ease; on the contrary, it seemed to intensify the anxiety in his eyes.

After a few seconds of silence, the supervisor said with a cold face, “Due to your behavior of bringing dangerous items last night, I must inspect you today.”

He Gu nodded, “I understand.”

The supervisor frowned and a trace of irritation flashed in his eyes, “Tonight, it’s just the two of us on the night shift… You are not allowed to leave the storeroom before the end of the shift, even to use the bathroom, you’ll have to take care of it right here in the storeroom!”

As he spoke, the supervisor pointed towards the corner of the storeroom, and only then did He Gu notice that there was a new spittoon there.

It seemed the supervisor was really going all out today!

Faced with the supervisor’s demands, He Gu still nodded readily in agreement.

The supervisor’s frown deepened.

Finally, the supervisor waved his hand impatiently, “Alright, you keep watch. I’m going back to the office.”

As the supervisor was about to leave, He Gu suddenly called out to him, “Supervisor, since it’s just the two of us on duty tonight… if I encounter a problem I can’t handle, you’ll come over in time, right?”
