An Chongqiu even noticed that several points on the palm of the old man’s hand, where he had been poked, had been poked so deeply that even the skin was broken from the constant poking, and the ink from the biros had even penetrated into the skin, forming marks similar to old tattoos.
Although he couldn’t see what was written on his palm, An Chongqiu could guess that it must be the words that he had written himself to constantly remind him of himself.
While An Chongqiu was distressed, he couldn’t help but quietly lean over to the old man’s side. It was only when the old man next poked his palm with a biro and peeked at the writing on his palm that An Chongqiu could see the three lines written on it.
“Chengqi and Changye have been gone for a full twenty years;”
“Thanks to the kindness of Chen’er’s fiancée for saving his life;”
“Chen’er has not yet returned.”
Seeing these three lines, An Chongqiu’s nose sank and his eyes could not help but feel a damp heat.
He could tell that the old man must have been in great pain when he wrote these three lines.
He could also see that the reason he had written these three lines was to remind himself not to forget.
As a child, seeing his father struggling so hard to remember that his own daughter and son-in-law had been dead for 20 years and that his grandson had not yet been found, An Chongqiu’s heart ached even more.
However, he knew very well in his heart that he could not persuade himself on such matters and could only let the old man digest it himself.
Soon after, An Kaifeng gathered all the An family’s bodyguards in New York, one by one, near the performance venue.
Once everyone had arrived, An Kaifeng said to the old man and the old lady, “Dad, Mom, everyone has arrived, we can go now.”
Master An nodded and said very politely to Fei Ke Xin, “Miss Fei, in that case, we’ll take our leave and thank you for your help! If there is any need for the An family in the future, the An family will definitely spare no effort!”
Fei Kexin said, “You are too kind, Mr. An. I am doing this purely for the sake of repaying your kindness, so you need not take it to heart.”
After saying that, she added, “My benefactor has instructed me to send you and all of you to safety, so I’d better go with you all!”
Master An nodded slightly and said with an arching hand, “Then it will be hard on Miss Fei!”
Fei Ke Xin remembered something and asked, “Right, the body of the woman that Master Yuan carried out just now, I wonder what you all plan to do with it, if it is not convenient for the time being, I can arrange a safe place to put it properly first.”
Master An then said, “I want to ask the forensic doctor to do an autopsy to see if there are any clues, but I really can’t spare the energy at the moment, so I’ll work hard for Miss Fei to help settle it down for the time being, and then contact you to retrieve it after the An family has slowed down.”
“No problem!” Fei Ke Xin agreed readily and said, “Then I’ll have someone send the corpse to a safe place later.”
Master An nodded and said, “Then let’s leave here first.”
At this time, the old lady at the side suddenly remembered something and asked with concern, “Miss Fei, I wonder if Miss Chen, who received us earlier, is here? She hasn’t been hurt in any way, has she?”
Fei Ke Xin busily said, “Don’t worry, Miss Chen is fine and is right outside.”
“Good.” The old lady breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Then let’s go out, I’ll stop by and say hello to Miss Chen too!”
