Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 185
After walking for half a night, he had already adapted to the darkness. When he arrived at the entrance of the village, he turned in accurately. At this time, the rain had stopped, causing a few dog barks, which soon disappeared. He discerned the direction according to his senses and strode towards his home.
Even though Liu Chunhe and Shorty were tasked to be on the lookout, Liu Chunhe wanted to check things out and give a hand as well. It was a rainy day and it was so dark, so what was there to look out for anyways?
At this moment, Shorty pulled him and said nervously, “A dog is barking; there’s someone!”
Liu Chunhe said in a low voice, “Who could be there? It’s normal for a dog to bark once or twice,” As long as it doesn’t bark continuously, it’s fine. Besides, it was currently raining and the ground was muddy. Except for those with ulterior motives, who on earth would be insane enough to come out?
Shorty continued to listen, “There is someone—listen.”
When Liu Chunhe was pulled by him, he had no choice but to turn his ears to listen and humour the guy. It was nothing at first, but later, he heard the sound of rain boots stepping on the muddy water.
There was someone!
Shorty pulled him aside to hide quickly. At the same time, he made two ‘meows’ to deliver signals to the people in the yard. This was their password which meant that someone was coming, but it was coded in a way that wouldn’t reveal themselves.
He guessed that the footsteps belonged to someone who was merely passing by at night or a patrol guard. Thinking that the ordeal would pass soon, he thought that it wasn’t important enough to judge it as a potential danger.
The duo hid behind the haystack beside them, begging the passerby to hurry over.
Who would have thought that the passerby was heading straight for the very house they were targeting!
Liu Chunhe and Shorty immediately felt their blood flowing backwards. Both of them were so nervous to the point where they didn’t even dare to let out a breath of air.
Soon, the man came towards them. Though it was extremely dark, Liu Chunhe guessed from the faint silhouette that it was a rather tall man.
Could it be that someone also had the same idea to steal that woman’s money? Is this our competition? He never thought that Han Qingsong would come back at this hour, so the possibility of it being the former Company Commander never crossed his mind.
Liu Chunhe listened to the actions of the man who gently pushed open the door. After realising that the door was locked, he stood still for a second. Was he thinking about climbing the wall or picking the lock?
Then, they heard the man walking towards the side wall too!
Liu Chunhe’s breathing was about to stop— they would be discovered!
The man touched the wall, and immediately jumped in silently. His movements were even more lighter and natural compared to Skinny.
Damnit, this really was a competition!
The person here was obviously not someone who was weak; instead, it seemed to be someone who was rather strong!
Liu Chunhe discussed the situation with Shorty as the two also went in. They intended to take down this infiltrator with their strength in numbers so as to not foil their plans.
As long as they had a common, tricky enemy, they would work together to overcome the issue. After all, the worst thing that could happen afterwards was just splitting the rewards.
When Han Qingsong first got home, he noticed that the front door was locked, so he didn’t want to insist on using the door. He was worried that Lin Lan would be awoken from her sleep just to unlock the door for him.
