The Superstar Little Brother-in-Law and The Social Butterfly Big Sister-in-Law (81)
He Nanxi was so easy to win over favorability that even the system was too lazy to monitor him.
Instead, it put its efforts on He Dongling’s side.
“The male lead’s life is in danger.”
The system’s brow furrowed.
Bai Weiwei: “Do those people want money, or his life?”
The system opened his ‘heavenly eye’, “Money and life. He Dongling was anxious to climb up, but still couldn’t touch the boss level cannon fodder Jiu Ye’s resources. He could only rob others.”
This theft would naturally make more enemies.
He Nanxi was He Dongling’s younger brother.
He Dongling was very vigilant, those people couldn’t easily get near him.
Those who had a vendetta against He Dongling had to kidnap He Nanxi instead.
Bai Weiwei thought about it and just as she was going to call He Dongling.
Her phone rang.
She picked up the phone and He Dongling’s voice was hoarse and gloomy.
“Weiwei, Nanxi was abducted.”
Bai Weiwei immediately changed her expression and said in an anxious tone: “What’s going on?”
He Dongling smiled bitterly, “My fault, the people I offended united to kidnap Nanxi, this time it’s expected to be a difficult rescue.”
Bai Weiwei also found it tricky, in this situation, she could only use life value to buy life saving tools from the system.
Otherwise, He Nanxi would surely face many grim possibilities.
On the other end of the phone, He Dongling’s breathing was heavy.
“Weiwei, they have a request.”
Bai Weiwei: “How much money?”
He Dongling hesitated, “It’s not money, it’s a life.”
Bai Weiwei paused, “Your life?”
He Dongling: “No, they want me to assassinate Jiu Ye. Exchange Jiu Ye’s death for Nanxi’s life.”
Bai Weiwei’s expression was at a loss, what kind of ghost trade was this, ah?
He Dongling also knew that Bai Weiwei probably didn’t understand this exchange.
He patiently explained: “Jiu Ye has been covering the sky with one hand too long. He’s amassed more hatred than me, many people can’t wait for him to die, yet no one has the ability to take his life. I was the first to openly confront him without dying, so those people are treating me as cannon fodder, forcing me to kill him.”
He Dongling’s heart was very clear.
This was a dead end.
If he didn’t go act as an assassin, Nanxi would die.
If he went, he would die.
Additionally, Nanxi wouldn’t necessarily be saved and Jiu Ye wouldn’t necessarily be killed by him.
Bai Weiwei: This ransom is particularly creative.
He Dongling went on to say: “Nanxi has been a good child since he was small. Except for being a bit cheap. He always had a heart for his family and I intend to accept this condition.”
Usually they would quarrel and annoy each other, prying into each other’s corners,
Nevertheless, when it mattered, they were brothers.
He Dongling could be a slag to anyone else, but facing this little brother he watched grow big, he really couldn’t do it.
Bai Weiwei’s mind was turning non stop, she followed his line of thought and said: “Dongling, calm down, you can’t save Nanxi this way.”
He Dongling said: “This is the only way, I’m here to say goodbye to you today……”
Bai Weiwei’s tone sank, “You don’t have to go, I’ll go.”
He Dongling thought that his ears had a problem, “What?”
Bai Weiwei had no hesitation, in a heavier tone, “I’ll go.”
He Dongling rose his voice, “Bai Weiwei, don’t make such a joke.”
Bai Weiwei was silent for a while, “The last time Jiu Ye let you go, I noticed that he had some interest in me.”
Of course, that interest was a father’s parental affection for his daughter.
After all, she performed according to Jiu Ye’s daughter’s character.
It would be strange if Jiu Ye had no reaction.
