Will Sr.’s hand reached for his pistol as he continued to complain and curse. His ears perked up, and his eyes scanned his surroundings vigilantly under the dim light of the lamp.
He had been in this toy store for almost 20 years, and he had personally organized the items on the shelves. As a result, he was very familiar with the placement of each item in the store. He easily noticed that the small pendant on the back door handle was a little crooked.
This meant that someone had opened the door and entered the small warehouse behind.
Will Sr. bit his lower lip hard. The pain made him calm down a lot, and his mind became clearer.
“F*ck you, you’ve smashed many of my things. How am I supposed to continue running my shop?” As he cursed, he knocked on the wall with one hand and walked to the door with the pistol in the other.
“You’d better make sure there’s still stock in the warehouse, or I’ll take out all of you f*cking b*stards.” He turned the door handle and pushed it forward violently. The door slammed into the wall with a loud bang.
Will Sr.’s ears perked up the entire time, but he didn’t hear any movement in the air. His heart wavered a little. Had the person already left? However, he did not dare to let his guard down.
“I only made one order today and earned a few dollars. It’s not even enough to cover the small change. How unlucky!” Will Sr. reached out and turned on the lights, revealing the slightly messy warehouse in full view.
He paused for a moment before walking in. As soon as he walked in, a gun was pointed at the back of his head. He was about to shout when a gust of wind blew behind him. He smelled a slightly familiar perfume.
Will Sr. paused and slowly turned around. Sure enough, he saw Caroline, who was dressed in black and had her face covered.
He heaved a sigh of relief and pointed at his chest as he kicked the paper box beside his foot. Then, he pretended to be in pain and shouted. He kicked it twice more. “You’re just a broken toy, and you want to bully me?!”
Caroline raised her eyebrows. Seeing his actions, she guessed that he had a listening device on him, so she cooperated and didn’t say anything.
Will Sr. cursed as he gestured with his eyes for her to walk to the long table. Then, he took out a piece of paper and wrote, “Why are you here?” He also passed the pen to Caroline.
The cautious Caroline wouldn’t expose her handwriting to the public. So, she took out her phone and wrote a line: [Received your call for help.]
After Will Sr. saw it, he had mixed feelings. He admitted that he felt a strong sense of uneasiness when he saw the men in black enter the store. In a moment of desperation, he picked up the child’s watch that he had set up earlier and sent Caroline a distress signal.
The reason he looked for Caroline was because he knew that she was the strongest among the people he worked with. Although Will Sr. had sent out the distress signal, he didn’t think that Caroline would come to save him, a person she had only met a few times.
Moreover, the target of those men in black was Caroline. She was in hiding, so why would she come out of nowhere and walk into the tiger’s mouth?
However, Caroline really came.
Will Sr. was still pretending to be cursing, but after seeing Caroline’s words, he opened his mouth and couldn’t continue.
He could only turn around and kick the box a few more times. “What the h*ll!”
He wiped his face and wrote on the paper: “Why?”
Why would she be willing to risk her life for an old man whom she had only met a few times?
Caroline tilted her head after seeing it. Then, she typed on her phone. [Because you’re my business partner.]
Although Will Sr. couldn’t see her face, he felt like he could guess her expression under the mask.
“To h*ll with it!” This time, Will Sr. switched to another cardboard box to kick.
Seeing that Will Sr. was fine, Caroline was relieved. She tapped on her wrist and then on her phone, signaling for him to contact her using his smartwatch.
Before she left, Caroline took out a purple silk pouch and placed it on the table.
When Will Sr. saw this, his breathing quickened for a moment.
Caroline waved at him. Then, like an agile cat, she disappeared into the darkness without a sound.
Originally, she had planned to lay low and not meet Will Sr. for a while. She would give the sapphire to Will Sr. when the situation was less tense.
But she didn’t expect that he would be the first to get into trouble..
