Chapter 38: Let Me Protect You (VI)
Clyde’s revenge happened faster than Shang Ke imagined. Not even half a month after the party, Mr. Ferrg was first fired from his company by an unknown reason. Then Mrs. Ferrg’s flowerbed were ruined. Following that, Shang Ke and Feng Juan’s bikes were stolen and other items were frequently lost.
Not long after, Clyde this bastard appeared in front of them again and proudly flaunted his “glorious achievement”. He then said that as long as they accompanied him for a few nights, he will let them off. But the result was that he and his pack of rogues were once again beaten up by Feng Juan. Feng Juan did not worry about them calling the police. A couple older boys being beaten up by a small, twelve year old boy would make them lose quite a bit of face if anyone heard it.
“He really has too much time.” Shang Ke spoke.
“Then let’s give him things to do.” Feng Juan replied.
Thus, the two of them worked together and put those batches of “nude pictures” on the campus site where Clyde stayed, facebook along with all sorts of public websites. They only made public the pictures of Clyde and adult women. The minor ones, they wrapped it up and sent it to the police. The so call nothing happens if they don’t do anything, but once they did they did it with all of their ability.
They believed that the following time, Clyde would not have the energy to come disturb them for a long time. As for the family income, Shang Ke and Feng Juan did not worry. Besides the government subsidize, they also relied on street performances, wrote some small programs, designed websites and did other odd jobs like that. So they also had a small pile of money.
Besides, the Ferrg couple were optimistic people, they would quickly cheer themselves up and once again start a new job.
“Have you still not found out who it was?” At the Star Technology Company office, a middle age man glared with anger at the technician sitting in front of a computer.
“Mr. Corson, they are clearly a pretty skilled hacker and did not leave behind any traces.” The technician said with confidence, “However, please be at ease sir, as long as he reappear, we can surely find a trail to him.”
Corson feel into thought for a moment then asked the assistant beside him, “Do you know who Clyde offended recently?”
This question really was too hard for the assistant, Clyde offends people pretty much every day…
They considered it for a moment then replied, “I am not completely sure who he offended recently, but I heard that he had gave a few people some lessons some time ago.”
“Who did he teach a lesson to?”
“Weinmann family’s youngest son, his classmate Jerry and two middle school students.”
A flash of darkness flashed through Corson’s eyes and he ordered him, “Send some people to play with them, if that person is among them, then he will definitely do something again.”
That night, Feng Juan carried a bag of fruit and waited at the entrance of the alley for Shang Ke.
Right at this moment, five to six well-built men suddenly appeared ahead. They quickly rushed up and started to attack without a word.
These people were all trained, no matter if it was build or power, they were all above Feng Juan. Feng Jun was still a twelve year old boy after all, he fought with his all for a couple minutes but still suffered a defeat and was forcefully carried away by them.
When Shang Ke arrived at the meeting spot and saw the scattered fruit on the ground, his face changed.
He immediately took out his phone and opened the tracking system. But Feng Juan’s phone signal disappeared midway. He cursed in a low voice then rushed home and opened his laptop. He took out the city map and used that small area to crazily search for Feng Juan’s tracks.
Not long after, Shang Ke found out what he wanted and saw how Feng Juan was attacked by a couple people. After that, he was taken into a black Ford and traveled sourthward. After tens of minutes, they disappeared from the monitor rage.
Shang Ke clenched his teeth and took out his cell phone to call Detective Rowan. “Detective Rowan, Ian was kidnapped.”
“What? Are you sure?” Rowan was greatly alarmed.
“I’m sure, I saw him being forced onto a black Ford with my own eyes. The license plate is TN46…” Shang Ke guessed that the license plate would be useless, but he still told him as much as he knew.
“Alright, I will immediately send people out to investigate. Come to the police department, I need to make a detailed report.”
“Okay.” Shang Ke hung up his phone then took his laptop and hurried to the police department.
“Why are you by yourself? Mr. Ferrg didn’t come with you?” Rowan looked at his lone self and asked with amazement.
“They aren’t in the area for now and can’t make it back.” Shang Ke looked toward Rowan, “Let’s find Ian first.”
Rowan also did not tarry and carefully questioned him of the time Feng Juan went missing, the place and other information.
“Do you know who Ian had conflicts with?”
Rowan’s question lit a light in Shang Ke’s mind. Conflicts? The only one they had recently was with Clyde! But there was no way for him to tell him everything, otherwise, the event with the nude pictures couldn’t be hidden anymore. The way they dealt with Clyde was illegal after all.
Shang Ke thought deeply for a moment, then replied with three words. “I don’t know.”
Rowan was just about to keep asking when a colleague notified him from outside the door, “Rowan, we found the target vehicle in the monitors.”
“Really?” Rowan immediately stood up and led Shang Ke to the monitoring room.
“Was it this car?” Rowan asked Shang Ke for confirmation.
Shang Ke nodded. He had already seen this video. After this black Ford disappears from this monitor, they would be unable to follow it and find its position.
Rowan quickly commanded, first for an investigation to be done on the license plate owner, next for people to follow it.
“Shang, stay here and wait for news.” Rowan said to Shang Ke.
“No, take me with you, maybe I would recall something..”
Rowan considered it for a bit then agreed.
Shang Ke followed Rowan into the car, sitting on the copilot seat.
Rowan had just started the car when he saw Shang Ke take out a laptop from his bookbag, put it on his legs and quickly opened it.
“Why are you taking out your laptop?” Rowan looked at him strangely, the people in the back seats also looked toward Shang Ke.
Shang Ke did not pay attention to him, his fingers quickly moved and started to follow Clyde’s parents. Clyde himself was in custody these days, so the only ones that could do this would be his family.
Shang Ke had hacked into Star Technology’s server before and left behind a backdoor, so he easily went in this time.
Although Rowan did not understand computers too well, he couldn’t help but be shocked at how practiced Shang Ke worked as well as what was shown on the screen.
Shang Ke did not care about exposing his hacking skills, Feng Juan’s safety was his priority right now.
He activied his Jumping Virus and quickly searched through Star Technology’s internal server. At the sam time, he tried to look for Corson’s phone signal.
Continuing on that, Shang Ke took out his cell phone and plugged in his headphones. The moment he put them on, the cell phone screen showed that he had cut into a call. Corson’s voice immediately flowed into Shang Ke’s ears. “…Alright, just throw him into the warehouse at the Port of Lena for now. Have someone let him out after a few days.”
“This kid injured quite a few of us, we want to give him a good lesson.”
“As long as you guys don’t disable him, you guys can do whatever.”
“No problem, boss.”
The phone disconnected and Shang Ke did not stay idle. His fingers flew through the keyboard. There were hundreds of warehouses at the Port of Lena, Shang Ke checked for those under Star Technology or Corson’s name. The result was zero. Then he used the assistant’s name, the secretary’s along with other trusted aid to search and finally found one.
Rowan kept half of his attention on Shang Ke as he drove. His expression was concentrated while his fingers were flying, pages flashed through quickly across the computer screen.
The more Rowan watched the more fearful he became. Even if he was a computer idiot, he still reacted by now. This child actually hacked into other people’s websites and easily accessed other people’s information.
He’s only thirteen! How could he have such high class hacking skills?
“Detective Rowan.” Shang Ke suddenly spoke, “Here.”
He pointed at his laptop, on it was Port of Lena’s map.
“How did you find out?” Rowan couldn’t help but ask, it has only been around a dozen minutes, he had actually found the specific location?
“Sorry, Detective Rowan, I didn’t tell you. We actually had a conflict with Clyde some earlier time frame, so I guess this event has something to do with them.”
Rowan’s mind spun and he asked flabbergasted, “Don’t tell me those nude pictures were sent out by you guys?”
Shang Ke nodded, he didn’t deny it.
Rowan was really convinced, “So they know it was you guys that did it? So they are taking revenge this time?”
“No, they shouldn’t know.” If they knew, then Corson wouldn’t just shut Feng Juan for a few days and wouldn’t get people to kidnap him. If they wanted to handle him, there were plenty of ways.
“Then why would he send someone to kidnap Ian?”
“He’s probably… trying to lure us out.” A sharp ray of light flashed through Shang Ke’s eye. After they save Feng Juan, he will fulfill that man’s desire.
Rowan looked at the current Shang Ke. His straight sitting posture, his deep eyes that faintly revealed his matureness and wisdom completely did not resemble a thirteen year old child. Only for someone important to him would he show the tip of his blade.
Perhaps… he had never genuinely understood this child?
Rowan did not continue to question him and sped up the car, heading straight for the destination Shang Ke gave him.
Shang Ke looked ahead and silently said in his heart: “Juan Juan, you will be fine. I’m coming.”
In the warehouse, Feng Juan was beaten until his nose dripped with blood and his face was swollen with injuries all over him. But he held himself firm and did not make a sound.
“Don’t pretend to be death, scream for me!” The man viciously kicked at his abdomen.
Feng Juan arched his body and glared at him coldly.
That man was even more infuriated by his galre and kicked even more fiercely at him.
Feng Juan bore with the pain as Shang Ke’s figure quickly flashed through his mind: No, he couldn’t die here! He didn’t want to leave Ke Ke!
He suddenly opened his eyes and used his blurred eyes to search around him.
Suddenly, his pupils contracted and noticed a iron poke at a corner not too far from him.
Feng Juan’s arm stretched out and steadily caught that kick, then pushed hard, causing the man to fall with his foot in the air.
Feng Juan took this chance to grab that iron poke and swung it to the side to hit the foot joint of another man, then he smashed it over his head.
“You still dare to resist. Go!” The remaining three to four jointly attacked Feng Juan.
Feng Juan coldly stared at them, cruelty flashed through his eyes…
A dozen minutes later, when the police broke through the doors, they just so happen to catch sight of Feng Juan taking down the last one.
In his hands was a iron pole stained with blood while he himself was also dirty and stained all over. On the ground all over were five to six groaning strong men.
His back was to the entrance. He tilted his head up and sweat flowed down from his hair, revealing beast-like eyes.
The police were frozen by his gaze and an indescribable chill rose from the bottom of their hearts. He was obviously just a child, why did he have such a fierce gaze? Compared to those muscled man on the ground, the child before them looked more like antisocial maniac! As such, are they here to save the hostage or to save the kidnappers?
“Juan Juan.” Just while the atmosphere was about to hit a deadlock, a sharp and clear voice broke through the deathly stillness.
Shang Ke jumped down from Rowan’s car and ran straight for Feng Juan. But he was stopped by Rowan, “Wait, don’t go over there yet.”
That child’s body was carrying killing intent, it was possible he might attack any one that neared him while he was unclear of his situation.
Rowan’s obstruction was still a step too slow as when he reached out, Shang Ke had already ran out by several meters.
He cursed in his mind and hurried ran up, fearing that he would be injured by Feng Juan.
However, what he worried about didn’t happen.
“Juan Juan.” Shang Ke opened his arms and hugged him without hesitation.
When he heard the familiar voice and saw the familiar person, the viciousness in Feng Juan’s eyes disappeared without a trace and the iron pole in his hand fell to the ground.
He bent down a little and leaned his head on Shang Ke’s shoulders. A peaceful expression slowly formed on his face.
Feng Juan’s stature was much bigger than Shang Ke’s, but at the moment, he was like a child being supported by Shang Ke. After that, as if relieved from a burden, he fainted in his arms…
