When she got home, she contacted Daniel and asked him to send over the paintings she wanted.
“Qinglan, the art exhibition is not over yet, is it good to withdraw now?” Daniel disagreed, knowing that these paintings should be for giving away, but it was not bad to keep them for a few more days, isn’t it?
But Shen Qinglan insisted, and Daniel had no choice but to agree.
Just after hanging up the phone, the phone rang again, this time it was an unfamiliar number, and it was from a foreign country, Shen Qinglan’s eyes paused, thinking of something, she picked it up.
It was Jin Enxi who called, “Ann, something happened.” Although she tried her best to be calm, Shen Qinglan could still hear the panic in her voice.
Her heart sank suddenly, “What happened?”
Following Jin Enxi’s narration, Shen Qinglan’s heart sank continuously, “I’ll book a plane ticket right away. Don’t act rashly, wait for me in country Y.”
“Okay.” Kim Eun-hee responded.
After hanging up the phone, Shen Qinglan called Mr. Fu and said that she wanted to go abroad for two days. Mr. Fu agreed without saying anything.
Shen Qinglan didn’t bring anything, she just took her passport and left, booked the fastest flight on the way, and flew directly to country Y.
After the plane landed, it was Jin Enxi who came to pick her up, “Ann, I’m sorry I kept you in the dark for so long.”
Shen Qinglan’s face was sullen and her face covered with frost, “We’ll talk about this later. Let’s go to the hospital first.”
Jin Enxi nodded. They turned their heads and drove the car very fast. It didn’t take long for the two of them to come to a private hospital. In the high-grade ward, they saw the man who was with Jin Enxi last time, ‘Andre’.
Andre’s face was full of exhaustion, there were still thick black and blue shadows under his eyes, his face was pale, his beard was shaggy, and he looked very embarrassed. When he saw Shen Qinglan, he looked apologetic, “Ann, I’m sorry, I didn’t want to drag you into this matter, in the end…”
Shen Qinglan waved her hand, looked at the woman lying on the bed, and saw that her body was covered with tubes, “How is Sisly?”
Andre wiped his face, “The doctor said she was already out of danger, but they are not sure when she’ll wake up.” He paused for a moment, his expression painful, “but the child in her belly is gone.”
That was his child, he and Sisli were lovers and partner. After quitting that organization, one of them entered the show business circle and the other became a model, and their careers were flourishing. They had been in love for many years, but no one knew about it. Their effort of keeping secrets was not bad. A month ago, they had just learned that Sisly was pregnant. They originally planned to make their relationship public and then get married. Unexpectedly, after that incident happened, Sisli was seriously injured. Although her life was saved, her child was gone.
Shen Qinglan was silent, glanced at the unconscious Sisli, and said in a deep voice, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
Andre lowered his head, and probably because he hadn’t rested for many days, his voice was very hoarse, “Ann, what are you talking about? We are different, your current status is not suitable to participate in such a thing.”
Shen Qinglan grabbed Andre’s collar, and her fist fell hard on his abdomen, and Andre bent suddenly in pain, Shen Qinglan let go of him, and Andre lay down again, then Shen Qinglan just looked at him condescendingly, with a cold expression, “Andre, am I so untrustworthy in your eyes?”
Shen Qinglan didn’t show mercy at all. Andre couldn’t get up for a long time, and lay there coughing. Jin Enxi looked anxious, but she didn’t dare to go up and try to persuade her. She knew that when they chose to hide this matter from Ann, it would make Ann angry, and when Ann was furious it was always terrible, that was why they didn’t dare to offend her easily.
There was a trace of blood dripping from the corner of Andre’s mouth, he wiped it with his hand, without a trace of complaint or anger and tried to stand up, “Ann, you have always been our most trusted partner, but since you have quit, we don’t want you to have blood on your hands again, Enxi said that your family and your husband are very good to you, what would you do if they get to know about your past?”
He also glanced at Jin Enxi, “If it wasn’t for Jin Enxi calling you behind my back, I won’t have told you at all.”
Shen Qinglan smiled, her smile was beautiful, but it made Jin Enxi shudder uncontrollably, it was over, Ann was furious. She desperately winked at Andre, telling him not to say anymore.
“Andre, you forgot, we used to be partners who fought side by side, and we were people who could give our lives for each other. If you don’t tell me, and I got to know later, or if something happened to you, what do you expect me to do? I said that since I have quit, don’t contact me again, but I didn’t say that if you are in danger, I will stand by and watch.”
Andre’s pupils shrank suddenly, looking at Shen Qinglan’s cold eyes, although she was smiling, he finally realized that something seemed to be very wrong. Why did he forget that Ann had always been the most affectionate.
Andre lowered his head, “Ann, I’m sorry.”
Shen Qinglan looked at him coldly, and it took her a long time to reach out and pull him up from the ground.
“What’s the situation with Eden now?” Shen Qinglan asked, seeing Jin Enxi.
“It is now confirmed that Eden has indeed fallen into BK’s hands, but his life should not be safe. We tried to rescue him a few days ago, but failed. That’s when Sisli was injured.”
BK? Shen Qinglan pondered. Although she had quit this business for many years, she still knew about BK. BK was a famous mercenary organization in the world. The number of people was small, but the fighting power of each person was strong, which could be compared with the former devil organization.
They were active all over the world, as long as the price was high enough, they could kill anyone for you. The leader was KING, a blond white man, supposed to be very cruel, maybe because there was such a leader, the members of the organization were also the same, Shen Qinglan once saw them even kill the elderly and children who had no power to resist.
BK was notorious among various mercenary groups in the world, but because of their powerful combat effectiveness, no one had been able to do anything to them.
Shen Qinglan and the others had conflicts with them several times before, but in the end they were all resolved under the coordination of the bosses of both parties. Shen Qinglan, who had fought against them, was naturally clear about their combat effectiveness.
“How did Eden fall into their hands?” Shen Qinglan was puzzled. Eden was an avid medical enthusiast. After breaking away from the devil’s organization, he had been devoting himself to researching medical skills. Logically, he should have nothing to do with them.
Jin Enxi shook her head, “We don’t know either. A month ago, we suddenly received a distress signal from Eden, but when we rushed there, we found nothing but a scalpel. We have been tracking down his whereabouts since then. Some time ago I just got the news, knowing that he is in BK’s hands, I went to rescue him, and the result…”
What the result was, was now clear at a glance.
Turning her eyes, Shen Qinglan looked at Andre, “How could you get hurt? Even if BK is powerful, according to the skills of you guys, there will be no problem in rescuing a person. How could it be like this?”
Although Andre didn’t say it, since Sisli had suffered such serious injuries, Andre must have suffered a lot of injuries as well.
Andre’s eyes sank, “We met KING. When we were evacuating, we met KING and his right-hand man. In the end, if Eden hadn’t taken the initiative to stay and threaten him with his life, I’m afraid we would not have even been able to leave.” To put it bluntly, they underestimated the enemy and capsized in the gutter.
Shen Qinglan pondered, since KING was able to let them go because of Eden’s threat, it showed that Eden was very important to them, so what was it for? Could it be because of Eden’s medical skills?
No, something was not right. Eden’s medical skills were indeed excellent, and he liked to study some difficult and miscellaneous diseases, so he was very good at this aspect, but his medical skills had not reached the peak, so what was it for?
There was a flash of inspiration in her mind, maybe Eden had something in his hand they wanted.
After understanding the key point, Shen Qinglan was not in a hurry, but BK’s account of hurting her friends could not be left uncounted.
“Where did you find their lair when you went there last time?”
Jin Enxi said an address, and Shen Qinglan frowned. This place seemed to be a war-torn country in Southern Africa, which was in a state of war all year round and was very chaotic. But for them, that was indeed a very good hiding place, their weapons and equipment were very sophisticated, and they did not have to be afraid of the local armed forces staying there.
“Is it still there?”
Jin Enxi shook his head, “We went to check after we came back, it seems that they have evacuated, but we recently found traces of their activities on the border of country Z, even KING is there, but I don’t know for sure if Eden is there too.”
Shen Qinglan’s face changed suddenly, “What did you just say? They are on the border of country Z?”
“Yes, and there seems to be something important, otherwise KING wouldn’t appear there.”
BK, a mercenary organization, had a wide range of businesses, as long as it was a profitable business, they would surely get involved, so it was naturally not a good thing for them to appear on the border.
But this was not something that Shen Qinglan could manage now, and she didn’t believe that the leaders of country Z didn’t know, maybe they had some plans.
The most important thing for her now was to bring Eden back.
“When Sisli wakes up, I will go to the border and bring Eden back.” Shen Qinglan said, since Eden’s safety was confirmed, she was not in a hurry. This matter was a bit troublesome, and she needed to plan it carefully.
Andre nodded, “I see, I’m going to prepare the equipment for you now.”
“Wait.” Shen Qinglan stopped him, “I’ll figure out how to equip myself, and you’ll be responsible for taking care of Sisli these few days. Okay, and take good care of your injuries, you are also an international superstar now, and your every move is subject to the attention of the outside world, so don’t cause unnecessary trouble.”
Andre also knew that what she said was right, so he didn’t refuse, and agreed.
“Enxi, you must give me the exact location of Eden within three days.”
After explaining things here, Shen Qinglan took Andre’s mobile phone, dialled a series of numbers, and the call was connected soon and a pleasant male voice came from the other end of the phone.
“Hi, hello, Andre.”
“Austin, it’s me, Ann.”
