Little Terrified Bun - Chapter 45
A chilly wind blew in from the slightly open window. Wei Zhe stared unwaveringly at his biological father, but suddenly showed a bright smile after a while. The teenager got up from his seat with gentleness filled in his eyes, in a polite manner. “I must take my leave, as I have some business to handle later. Please excuse me.”
As he finished his farewells, he humbly nodded to the people presently seated at the table. His exit was very composed, making it difficult to link him to his previous cruel, fierce expression. But the steps that he took were extremely big. In almost the blink of an eye, he was already gone from the luxurious, but cold room.
“This…” The Principal smiled reluctantly. “Mr. Wei, if you are busy, then we can reconvene next time.”
“It’s fine.” Wei He shook his head indifferently. He picked up the glass of wine next to him and took a sip, the rich texture of the wine left him with an lingering aftertaste.
Unexpectedly, his son was exceptionally tolerant and patient.
“Then let’s continue to eat, eat…” The Principal smiled obsequiously while hinting the other two teachers with his eyes to lighten up the atmosphere.
Once Wei Zhe walked out of the restaurant entrance, he took out his phone to call Uncle Li. “What exactly is going on?”
Uncle Li was also about to go crazy at the moment. He didn’t dare to hide the truth, so he told Wei Zhe all the details from the beginning to the end. After he was separated from Wei Jing in the afternoon, he followed Wei Min and Wei Min’s cousin around the amusement park until almost five o’clock, when he wanted someone to pick Wei Jing up.
Who would have thought that Lu Tianyou would suddenly get hit by a bicycle, and injure his arms and knees.
Without alternative, Uncle Li had to accompany him to the hospital to get an x-ray done and negotiate for compensation. After all this delay, the sky had already turned dark when he wasn’t aware.
And when he went with Wei Min to pick up Wei Jing, he realized… that he couldn’t even find the child.
Coincidentally, they weren’t the only ones looking for a child. They had heard that artist Xu Jiaming, whose artworks were featured at the art exhibition, also lost his son. Through the camera recording in front of McDonald’s, they had confirmed that his child was kidnapped, so they had contacted the police early on, and the policemen also began investigating the camera records from the street where the kidnappers headed.
It was just that the kidnappers were extremely sneaky. Not only did they circle around the road a lot, they also drove on roads that didn’t have cameras frequently.
Upon hearing the news, Uncle Li had a bad feeling, so he went to McDonald’s reluctantly to request permission to check the video recording, claiming that his young master was also lost. As he finished watching…he was scared half to death and his legs became paralyzed; he had lost the child of the Wei family, how would the members of the family forgive him.
What he didn’t think was that… Mr. Wei didn’t seem to care about this child.
Just as he let out a sigh of relief, he was startled by Wei Zhe’s interrogation.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t think such a thing would happen.” Uncle Li apologized sincerely, his words full of remorse as well as hatred towards the kidnappers. “Those shameless people, how could they have the nerve to do such an immoral thing as kidnapping children.”
To put it objectively, although Uncle Li should bear the responsibility for not supervising with more care, Wei Jing also persisted in watching the artworks on his own, so he should also take responsibility.
But now was not the time to assign the blame. Wei Zhe quickly went through the whole thing in his brain. After identifying a few suspicious parts, he followed up with a deep voice, “Where is Wei Min’s cousin? Where is he now?”
“Him?” Uncle Li stiffened. “I don’t know, we separated in the hospital at the time.”
