Chapter 917: Taking Every Opportunity One Can Get (9)

Upon hearing this, Huo Mian couldn't wait and immediately picked up the call log and began looking at it closely.

She immediately noticed that an unknown number consisting of weird numbers appeared three times.

It only appeared three times, but the number was very attention-grabbing#

"You're wondering about that number beginning with 920, right?" Jiang Xiaowei guessed what Huo Mian wanted to ask.

"Yeah, it's a really weird number, can we find out where it's from?" Huo Mian looked up at Jiang Xiaowei. She noticed that Uncle Jing contacted this number at 2 AM on the day he died. This was a very weird time, paired with a weird number that only swindlers would use.

"Yeah, at the time I thought it was weird too, so I asked a hacker friend to check it out. Weirdly enough, it is a fake number. However, when we investigated further, we were surprised to find out that its IP is in a foreign country."

"A foreign country?" Huo Mian was a little surprised.

Jiang Xiaowei nodded. "Amsterdam, Holland. I can't track the actual location because it's too far away# all I know is that the person who used this number was there."

Huo Mian thought back but didn't remember that Uncle Jing knew anyone from Holland. This was indeed shocking news.

It was beyond her imagination#

Then, she continued looking at the call history. Everything else was normal 每 there were phone calls from her, her mother, and some of Uncle Jing's friends back in the day. The only weird thing was those three calls from the same strange number.

"Will this number go through? I'd like to call them."

"Technically it shouldn't since this number is basically a fraud number. You can dial it, but no one will pick up, because whoever used this number probably didn't want to be found out. However, you can still try, but I didn't."

Huo Mian nodded. Then, she took out her phone and dialed the long string of numbers on the call history.

However, the number really didn't go through 每 it was busy#

"This number shouldn't be from a scammer, they won't call three times," Jiang Xiaowei analyzed.

"It definitely isn't a swindler, take a look at the length of the call. See, the last phone call was as long as 4 minutes."

Huo Mian was attentive to details; upon seeing the length of the calls, she became even more suspicious.

She was sure that Uncle Jing didn't know how to speak even a word of English. How on earth did he communicate with someone in Holland?

Was he talking to a Chinese person?

The more Huo Mian thought about it, the more confused she got#

Also, she realized that her identity was like a giant ball of mysteries. The more she looked into it, the more questions she uncovered. Things weren't as simple as she thought they were, no wonder even men as powerful as Rick and Qin Chu couldn't find anything.

Even she noticed that things were much more complicated than they seemed#

But because of that, she wanted to find her biological family, now more than ever. Did her parents even know that a daughter like her existed on this earth?

Huo Mian was fighting with Qin Chu, so she didn't want to go home. She also didn't want her mother to worry, so she decided not to go back to Sky Blessing Court either.

Instead, she arranged a few night shifts and planned to live out her days at the hospital. During the day, she rested on the bed in the hypnosis room.

She basically lived at the hospital#

- That night -

Qin Yumin rarely came to GK; after he did a little inspection, Qin Chu drove him back to the Qin Manor.

"Chu# I need to ask you something."

"Sure," Qin Chu said as he drove.

"You and Huo Mian are young, so I didn't want to interfere too much in your relationship, unlike your mother# but this time the media really blew this incident up. I'm confused, why would Huo Mian know someone like Su Yu and step out to defend him? Rumors are flying all over the place, and they're not pleasant to listen to. Did you guys talk about this?" Qin Yumin asked with a stern face.

Qin Chu's expression changed; he knew that his father was bound to ask him about what happened. After all, everyone knew about it.
