Chapter 964 Let“s Go to the Hotel
After thinking for a while, Leng Shaoting said, “Um, why don’t we give up the idea of going to have night snacks?”
Gu Ning was struck dumb for a second, and asked with confusion, “Why? Aren’t you hungry?”
“I’m not.” Leng Shaoting compressed his lips.
Actually, he was hungry, but not for food. If they went to share night snacks tonight, they wouldn’t have much time to be alone together. Most importantly, he couldn’t stay too long in City B, and had to go back to the military base for the monthly training the day after tomorrow.
Unless he had a task to fulfill, he had to join the monthly training every month. It was the rules, and he had to obey it. In addition, he was the one who set those rules.
“Come on, you have to eat something,” Gu Ning said. She cared about his health.
“It’s not good for me to keep in shape if I eat at night. If I can’t stay in shape, I can’t move fast when I’m fulfilling my task,” Leng Shaoting said with a serious face, but Gu Ning understood that he was lying. They had shared night snacks many times before, but this was the first time that he had said that.
“What do you want to do if you don’t want to eat?” Gu Ning asked.
“Why don’t we go to the hotel and spend some private time together before I drive you back to Huafu Hills?” Leng Shaoting said.
Hearing that, Gu Ning realized what was on Leng Shaoting’s mind.
Since he said so, Gu Ning agreed, but she still said, “Then you must eat a good breakfast tomorrow after you get up.”
“Sure.” Leng Shaoting smiled with satisfaction, then drove back to the Shengshi Hotel.
Ke Mingze and his people checked the surveillance videos once they got back to the police station, and everything went as Gu Ning had told them.
Gu Ning and two other people went to pick her friends up at the airport. After waiting for around a dozen minutes, Gu Ning’s sight fell on a middle-aged man and she followed him. She drove behind him till the villa area.
A short while later, they received Gu Ning’s call for help.
However, the middle-aged man disappeared all of a sudden after leaving in a car.
They found out how the middle-aged man looked and the license plate of the car he drove, so they decided to conduct the investigation from these clues. The man who gave the middle-aged man the car key was also their target.
Nevertheless, they found that the middle-aged man had booked the car from a car rental agency online. In that case, the car provider wasn’t guilty.
However, it was necessary to leave one’s ID number and phone number to book a car, so Ke Mingze got the basic information on the middle-aged man from the car rental agency.
Even though they got the middle-aged man’s phone number, nobody answered their calls.
Afterwards, Ke Mingze typed in the middle-aged man’s ID number to search for his records of taking planes, trains, or staying in hotels and so forth. As long as the middle-aged man used his ID card, the police could easily find out what he had done.
The man of the Evil Practice didn’t leave City B after escaping from the villa area, because he was unwilling to give up on Gu Ning. She was covered in magical power, which was quite useful in his eyes.
Members of the Evil Practice seldom stayed in the world for a long time, so the man had no idea that the police were searching for him.
He went to a hotel and wanted to book a room, but he was already on the wanted list released by the police.
The receptionist of the hotel soon found out that he was an escaping criminal after checking his ID number.
She was scared, but composed herself. She made up a lie and told the man that the system was acting up and that she needed to turn to their manager for help.
The man didn’t think further and agreed.
A minute later, the hotel manager came over with five security guards, trying to catch the man.
The man didn’t understand why they wanted to catch him, but he knew that he couldn’t stay there any longer.
Given the man’s fighting skills, he beat them down like lightning, but didn’t seriously injure them.
Others in the hall were all frightened, and ran away screaming in fear.
The man seemed to realize why they wanted to catch him after seeing their reaction. In case Gu Ning found him, he left the hotel without hesitation dumping the ID card there.
He had more than one ID card after all. Besides, this ID card wasn’t his.
Those who wanted to practice their inner discipline didn’t live in the same world as normal humans, so there was no need for them to have a real ID card.
If they needed to deal with something in the normal human’s world, they would make a fake ID card. Sometimes, they turned to important officials for help, or directly used ID cards of dead people.
Members of the Evil Practice were always cruel, so they preferred to kill someone and steal his or her ID card. The man got his two ID cards in that way too.
Even though he still had another ID card, he didn’t dare to stay in any hotels now. He went to buy a quilt and some food, then went to stay in an abandoned warehouse. He had slept at graveyards before, so an abandoned warehouse was nothing in his eyes.
The man understood that it wasn’t easy to absorb Gu Ning’s magical power, but he had no intention to tell that news to other members of the Evil Practice.
Members of the Evil Practice were all selfish and self-centered, and they hated sharing anything good they could get with others. No matter how hard it was, members of the Evil Practice always worked alone.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting arrived at the Shengshi Hotel a while later.
Once they got in the room, Leng Shaoting kissed and rubbed Gu Ning. He couldn’t wait a second longer to be closer to her.
Action spoke louder than words after all.
