“I can’t send any special forces without evidence,” Jiang Yu said.
Jing Tong was stunned for a bit, and then she sneered, “You can do it. You’re just afraid of being attacked by your political rival!”
With that man’s current status, he only needed to say a word to mobilize a portion of the special forces, but he didn’t want to. If he did that, his enemies would definitely seize the chance to attack him. He wouldn’t let himself suffer a loss when the election was imminent.
Jiang Yu frowned and said, “You’re reading too much into things but that’s what the rules require. I have to follow the rules and procedures.”
“Aren’t rules meant to be broken? It just depends on whether you’re willing to pay the price.” Jing Tong smirked sarcastically. “Jiang Yu, you know that there’s a group of people doing evil research. You know that Ji Shiting and Ye Shengge are in danger, yet you’re talking about rules and procedures here? Jiang Yu, I’ve always thought you were different from those people. I thought you’d at least have a sense of justice. Turns out you’re only so-so.”
“Evil research? Are they in danger now?” Jiang Yu’s expression didn’t change, but his eyes became more fierce. “You didn’t investigate this yourself, but someone told you, right? What makes you so sure that the other party isn’t lying? After so many years, you’re still so impulsive and reckless.”
“You…” Jing Tong blushed. “Shut up, Jiang Yu! I don’t need you to lecture me!”
Jiang Yu walked toward her.
Jing Tong took a step back and said sternly, “Don’t come over!”
At that moment, she recalled the domineering and passionate kiss that man had left her. Her face began to heat up, and then, she felt greatly ashamed. ‘It has been such a long time. Why would I still be moved by that man? How ridiculous!’
Jiang Yu stopped walking and looked at her legs before turning around to look at her face.
“If there’s still no news from them after 48 hours, I’ll make a move, or someone or evidence will show up before that. Otherwise, I won’t send anyone out. You don’t have to worry about them anymore.”
“48 hours? It might be too late by then!” Jing Tong was furious. “Jiang Yu, are you really serious or are you just timid?”
“What’s their relationship with you? Are you trying to defend them?” Jiang Yu’s tone turned cold.
“Because I don’t want my father to continue to commit crimes!” She suddenly yelled, and her body trembled. “He’s my father! Even if everyone hates him to the core, I want him to be fine! If stopping his evil deeds can reduce his retribution, I won’t hesitate! Jiang Yu, do you understand? No, you don’t. You’ve never known what kindness is!”
She bit her lips, and tears welled up in her eyes.
Jiang Yu’s pupils constricted. After a while, he said, “It’s getting late. Rest early after you finish your ginger tea. Since you’ve provided clues, I’ll send someone to investigate. If there’s concrete evidence, I won’t stand aside.”
Jing Tong suddenly found herself to be really ridiculous when she saw how calm he was.
