The Accounts Book was Burnt?!
Hurriedly getting out of the police car, Su Lin rushed into his house.
“Mother! Mother… how are you? Is it serious?”
Just as he entered through his gate, Su Lin saw a bunch of their neighbors gathered around his mother in the courtyard. 5-6 criminal police officers were also present at the scene, gathering verbal and photographic evidence of the place. But the front door of their house had been smashed down, and even in his confusion, Su Lin could see the smashed chests and cupboards, with all of their family’s stuff scattered around.
“Little Lin, you are back already? Mother is alright; it’s just a small arm injury, and everything will be alright after running some more medicine. But look at everything in our house, everything has been smashed and broken by the intruders… Don’t know what those bunch of bastards had been looking for when they smashed about everything. It’s not like our family had any valuables they could have obtained.”
Mother Su, Liu Aizhen, panted in rage as she cursed those bastards in black who broke into their home and ruined everything.
“Mother, everything’s well if you are well!”
To be honest, on the road, the only real worry Su Lin had was the concern for his mother as he had been afraid those intruders might heavily injure her. Now that he saw that his mother only suffered a few scrapes on her arm, his heart felt relieved. But the fact that those bastards dared break into his house was something Su Lin could definitely not forgive! Su Lin clenched his fists as it was hard to swallow his anger now that this enmity had been born.
“Little Zhao, Old Li, how’s the current situation?”
Criminal police vice squad leader, Yan Longyong, also caught up and entered the residence. Immediately, he found the nearest two criminal police officers and questioned them about the current situation.
“Chief, we have basically determined the course of events that transpired. Four men wearing black suits and sunglasses broke into Su Family’s house around 3 in the noon, about an hour ago. With a strong momentum, they rushed in and started smashing around cupboards and chests to look for something. Obviously, it wasn’t for wealth as the Su Family doesn’t have any sort of valuables at home. Moreover, according to Mother Su and some other eyewitnesses, after rummaging about for a while, those intruders acted as if they had found what they were looking for, and rushed out and away in a hurry.”
As Yan Longyong listened to the officers’ report, he frowned and said, “According to your report, we can determine without doubt that those men were here for the Dragon-Tiger Gang’s Accounts Book. Moreover, there’s also the possibility that they already found the Accounts Book. The situation’s not good. Do you know which direction they fled to, and what vehicle they were using?”
“Chief, as soon as we received the report, we rushed here at our top speed. Moreover, the eye witnesses reported that the intruders escaped in a “Fujian Xiali” model car with the number plate listing “A78945″ as the registration number. We have already relayed that information to the Traffic Police department and they have blockaded all roads in the city, and are checking every vehicle to catch the criminals…”
“That’s good! The evidence in the Accounts Book is far too important, so we must get it back no matter how! Mobilize all police forces under our command — we must capture those criminals.”
Yan Longyong nodded. This was all they could do now. What a pity! They were a step too late at figuring everything out, otherwise, they wouldn’t have let those criminals reach this place so soon.
“Little Lin! Our home… Just who did our family offend? For several days, trouble’s all that’s coming to our place. Couple of days ago, someone smashed the window, then your father and I were laid off from our jobs, and now someone broke into the house and smashed everything, turning our house upside-down…”
Although the words that came out of Mother Su, Liu Aizhen’s mouth were foul, fear had begun welling up in her heart. After all, those four men in black who broke into their house were just too fierce and evil. After they pushed her aside, making her collapse on the ground, she didn’t dare make the slightest movement and quietly lay down on the floor. It was only after they had left did she get up to call the police, but the neighbors had already done that.
“Mother! Don’t be afraid. We will soon bring those evil people to justice!”
Because of his own matters, he had brought such a disaster upon his family. In his heart, Su Lin felt a rush of guilt, but this also steeled his resolve in helping the police exterminate that group of Dragon-Tiger Gang and those corrupt officials.
“Oh right! Mother, didn’t Chief Yan bring me home the day before yesterday? There was something in my clothes they needed. Do you remember where you put that thing? It was the criminal syndicate, Dragon-Tiger Gang’s Accounts Book that had details of all their unlawful trades, bribes, and records.”
If they really wanted to exterminate those criminals thoroughly, the only way would be to get their hands on the Accounts Book that recorded all of their transactions. Su Lin hadn’t yet concluded that the Accounts Book might have been already taken away by those intruders, so he asked his mother.
“I think there was such a thing soaked in blood. I had thought it was your study book or some mock papers, so I placed it on the balcony for it to dry. Ah! Right, those people who broke into our house were also yelling at me, asking for some account book, but how would this old woman know anything about that at such a time. So, they pushed me aside and…”
Mother Su tried her best to recall and describe.
“On the balcony? Let me take a look…”
Su Lin immediately rushed towards their balcony in the back of the house, and found it to be completely empty. It seemed that those intruders had truly taken away the Accounts Book…
