Chapter 580: Snatched

"I have my ways," Tangning replied calmly.
But, even though Hai Rui was the leader of the industry and Mo Ting was the King of Entertainment, Master Ni was still someone from the underworld. So, Yang Xi knew as well as everyone that Master Ni appeared clean on the surface, but was involved in plenty of illegal activities. It's just a shame that she couldn't get a hold of any evidence against him.
That's why the police were so excited when they first captured her, expecting that they'd get something out of her.
Unfortunately for them, Yang Xi had nothing. She simply lied to them, hoping for a chance at life. Because for some reason, she felt that the Tangning that despised her, wouldn't truly hurt her and would instead help her...
Of course, Tangning's way of helping Yang Xi wasn't merely to keep her alive. She was going to make Master Ni completely disappear from the underworld. Otherwise, with Master Ni's temper, he would definitely seek revenge on Tangning and Mo Ting. Someone as smart as Tangning would never expose herself to any risks; it wasn't in her character to do so.
"Actions speak louder than words. You have an obstacle right before you. How are you going to stop that cold-blooded killer from taking me away?"
Tangning simply looked at Yang Xi without responding straight away. After a few minutes, she finally asked, "Does that person kill people on behalf of Master Ni?"
"I'm not entirely sure. All I know is, he's helped him conceal a lot of illegal activities."
After this, the two women did not say any more. Yang Xi simply watched as Tangning made one phone call after another. Finally, the assistant lost his patience and began knocking on the door, "Xiao Xi, Master Ni has made a few phone calls and told you to hurry!"
Yang Xi looked towards the door, but Tangning held down her icy cold hands and shook her head calmly, "Ignore him."
At this moment, Yang Xi had no idea what Tangning was thinking. She was simply terrified.
"Xiao Xi, Master Ni is on his way. He is personally coming to pick you up..."
After a few moments of silence in the private room, Tangning finally stood up and walked over to the door. As she opened it, she took a quick glance at Mo Ting.
"Let's go, Xiao Xi..."
"Since Master Ni is already on his way. I would like to give my greetings," Tangning offered.
"Miss Tang, please don't test your limits," the man's words obviously contained a sense of warning. "We are from different sides of the fence, let's not make things difficult for each other. There's no need to put yourself in danger over someone that once tried to hurt you."
"It's because she tried to hurt me that I want to personally deal with her."
Hearing this, the man felt that negotiating with a woman was a waste of his energy. So, he turned to Mo Ting instead, "President Mo..."
"My wife is the boss," Mo Ting sat to one side with a king-like presence that could not be ignored. Yet, when he spoke, the assistant didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
He was willing to support Tangning no matter what she wanted to say or do.
In other words, even if Tangning wanted to kill someone, he would be there to help her bury the body.
A moment later, the cafe became even more crowded with the addition of Master Ni; making the atmosphere quite tense.
"It seems like we have quite a crowd today. Does President Mo also have an interest in Yang Xi?"
With the appearance of Master Ni, Yang Xi hid in the corner with a bitter smile. It seemed, she couldn't escape her fate. Even if Tangning tried to protect her, there was no use.
"Master Ni must be kidding. I'm simply out for a stroll with my wife," Mo Ting smiled.
"Since that's the case, why is Mrs Mo holding onto my Xiao Xi and not letting her go?" Master Ni asked with a forced smile. "Here I was, waiting at home for her to return. If I had known, I would have arrived sooner."
Tangning did not say a word.
"Mrs Mo, let's each watch over our own territory and not step over the border. I'm sure you're smart enough to know what I mean," Master Ni continued to smile. "Otherwise, regardless if it is Tang Corps or Hai Rui, I have plenty of time to play games with you. I would like to see if the entertainment industry is more powerful than my thousands of brothers."
"Is Master Ni trying to threaten me?"
"You have no choice but to accept my threat," Master Ni smiled arrogantly before he pulled Yang Xi behind him. "Let's go home, precious...I have something I want to speak to you about."
"So you're actually trying to threaten me, huh?" Tangning laughed. "I hate it when people threaten me."
"But, there's nothing you can do about it. Even if you can protect her today, will you be able to protect her in the years to come? Or could you guarantee her safety for the rest of her life?"
Yang Xi closed her eyes and took a deep breath. She was already in the hands of the devil and felt that death was merely on her doorstep.
But, just as Master Ni was about to take Yang Xi away, the door to the cafe suddenly flew open. Standing in the doorway was a person that even Master Ni had to bow down to.
It was the chief of the Beijing police!
"Chief Li, are you here to have some coffee?"
The middle-aged man had a tanned and healthy complexion. As soon as he saw that Master Ni had Yang Xi in his arms, he replied, "I'm here to take my goddaughter home for dinner."
Master Ni was a little confused by Chief Li's words, "Your goddaughter is..."
"Yang Xi is my new goddaughter. Didn't you know?" Chief Li pulled Yang Xi to his side. "My wife loves watching her films. When she saw her at the police station earlier, she was excited by the rare opportunity and begged me to take her home so she could satisfy her star-chasing dream."
Initially, Tangning snatched Yang Xi from the assistant's hands...
Afterwards, Master Ni snatched her back from Tangning's hands...
Just as Master Ni appeared to already be the winner, the chief of police suddenly appeared.
Master Ni glared angrily at Tangning. He never expected that Tangning's scheming would reach this level.
Now that Yang Xi was the goddaughter of the police chief, if he was to make a move on her, he would be making a move on the police chief's family member. This was a crime on a whole new level. More importantly, this new identity now gave Yang Xi an impenetrable form of protection from all dangers.
Because, everyone knew the real meaning to this relationship! It wasn't hard to understand the motive.
The police were obviously fighting with the underworld for control of their witness!
This was where Tangning showed off her intelligence. All three parties had nothing that attracted doubt and her entire plan was flawless.
If Master Ni still wanted to get rid of Yang Xi, he would need to put himself through 100 times the risk. This was like gambling with everything he had.
If he didn't get rid of her, he'd have no choice but swallow his anger and pretend that Yang Xi never existed...
But, how was he to swallow something so big?
