Those people stopped talking and quieted down.
The young man, whom they called Blue Shark, slowly walked forward and asked with a grim face, “Have you forgotten the rules of the underground market? Who’s trying to make trouble?”
“No, we just saw an unknown Omega and thought we’d tease him, who would dare to really do anything to him.” Someone said with a sly laugh.
Luo ZhouZhou packed his backpack, and seeing that Blue Shark looked like the manager of the place, he loudly said, “This trading place of yours is nothing good.”
Blue Shark looked at him and asked, “What’s no good about it?”
“We also have an underground trading floor, but everyone just trades in peace and no one acts like this.” Luo ZhouZhou used to frequent the underground trading floor, looking for people to buy the freshest plasma from. He had never encountered anything like this there before.
The powerful vampires, both overtly and covertly, were uniformly maintaining order.
“The underground trading floor you went to, is it also a place for an Omega like you to wander around alone?” Blue Shark asked bluntly.
“We don’t have any Omegas on the trading floor, but there are old men, women, and sick people who can buy, sell, and trade freely in there, and it has rules, so they don’t mess around like this.”
“The underground trading floor is a chaotic place where power is the rule.” Blue Shark said.
“But power is not supposed to be used to bully others.” Luo ZhouZhou said.
Luo ZhouZhou remembered the chief’s words not to display the mighty power of a vampire lightly, and that it should only be used to protect oneself, not to violate and conquer others.
Blue Shark shook his head and said, “I will punish them for offending you just now, but you better know your own Omega status and know which places not to enter.”
“When I came in, the man at the door didn’t say that Omegas weren’t allowed in.”
“It’s not that they’re not allowed, it’s that when you come in, you might encounter a situation like the one you were just in.”
“Then all I can say is that this trading floor of yours is the most – trash – trading ground.”
When Blue Shark heard this, his demeanor went cold. He averted his eyes and said with a bit of impatience, “Then when you have the power, you can say whether this trading floor of ours is trash or not.”
“Hahahaha, little Omega, wait until your little thin arms are as thick as mine before saying these words.” Someone beside him started laughing and showed his arms, making the muscles on them bulge.
Blue Shark looked to the man, who slowly withdrew his laughter and shrank back.
“I don’t have an arm like yours, but I have teeth,” Luo ZhouZhou said.
Even though he had just been stopped by Blue Shark with a look, the man couldn’t help but hear that and asked with another smile, “Are you talking about your row of little white teeth?”
“Not just the teeth, but also this.”
Luo ZhouZhou raised his hand, and everyone saw a shiny dagger appear in his hand. Everyone in the area stopped talking and drew a breath of cold air. No one knew when he grabbed the dagger in the next stall and held it in his hand.
Just now if they relaxed their vigilance and Blue Shark hadn’t appeared, one of them would have been stabbed by him in the chaos.
At that moment, some shadows appeared in the corner of the trading floor. Blue Shark raised his hand to make a stop gesture, and those people shrank back.
“Omega, I’m just joking with you, do you need to be so cruel?” The man who started pulling on Luo ZhouZhou’s backpack shouted out, but was accosted by a cold look from Blue Shark and shut his mouth.
“So what do you want?” Blue Shark said to Luo ZhouZhou, “As you can see, this is what our trading floor here is like.”
“Yeah, so what do you want? Little handsome boy, look at your thin arm, be careful not to let the dagger hurt you.” The skinny vendor, who first shouted out and had been sitting behind the stall watching the commotion, inserted while laughing.
Luo ZhouZhou turned to look at him, and the vendor narrowed his eyes at him.
In that instant, Luo ZhouZhou, who was standing still, suddenly rushed towards him without any warning. His speed was so fast that the vendor didn’t have any time to react, the smile hadn’t even faded, before a dagger was pointed at his throat.
“If there are no rules here, and power is used to attack others, then I can stab him to death now.” Luo ZhouZhou stated to the others, leaning against the wall.
Everyone in the room was stunned, including Blue Shark, who didn’t say a word.
“You… you…” A moment later, someone wanted to ask if he was bluffing, but seeing Luo ZhouZhou’s expression and eyes, he swallowed the rest of his words.
Anyone could see the determination and seriousness in the eyes of this seemingly fragile Omega. He wasn’t bluffing, he was really capable of taking action and plunging a dagger into someone’s throat.
“If you have anything to say, put the dagger down first, if you lose your grip, someone will die.” Someone stammered.
The vendor was scared white by the sharp dagger aimed at his throat, and his voice was shaking, “Young master, you can’t play with daggers like this, you’ll really hurt people…”
“But you didn’t care if they would hurt me,” Luo ZhouZhou retorted.
Blue Shark sized Luo ZhouZhou up from head to toe, slowly smiled, and said, “You’re quite an interesting Omega.”
“Half.” Luo ZhouZhou said coldly.
“I’m only half an Omega that didn’t listen properly today and forgot to be cautious. Now I’m the other half.”
Blue Shark asked, “What’s the other half?”
“The half that can get you guys killed,” Luo ZhouZhou said.
“It’s not necessary to kill him, they haven’t made that big of a mistake, can you let him go and find another way to make amends?” Blue Shark asked.
The vendor heard these words, only to feel the dagger forced on his throat get closer and closer, and couldn’t help but shout, “Blue Shark, please think of a way, ah… can’t speak… young master, I will never dare again. “
“There are other ways to get out of this,” Luo ZhouZhou replied.
This time, not to mention the others, even the stall owner forgot to shout.
“So straightforward?” Blue Shark laughed and asked.
Luo ZhouZhou considered the question and answered, “You also said that you guys didn’t make that big of a mistake.”
“Then how do you want to take it out on us?” Blue Shark asked.
Somewhere along the way, the people on the trading floor had been drawn over, crowding three rows on the inside and three rows outside the edge to watch.
“Little Omega, tell them to slap themselves.”
“No, that’s not enough, tell them to bark like a dog and crawl on the floor.”
Everyone around… was laughing and shouting, especially those who were regularly bullied by the vendor’s group.
“Blue Shark, we were really just joking around, there’s no need to get so serious, right?” One of the people who was first to surround Luo ZhouZhou couldn’t help but say to Blue Shark.
Blue Shark sneered and said, “I’ve heard about the things you guys usually do in the market, but now you’ve met your match. If the people are not satisfied, what can I do?”
The man listened to Blue Shark’s tone, clearly wanting to take this opportunity to clean them up, and shut his mouth tight.
“What’s your name?” Blue Shark asked Luo ZhouZhou.
“What about you? What’s your name again?” Luo ZhouZhou returned his question.
“My name is Blue Shark.”
“Then my name is Vampire.”
Blue Shark fell silent and asked, “Vampire, so have you thought of a way to make amends yet?”
Luo ZhouZhou nodded, “I have thought of it.”
“Then tell me, I’ll make them agree to you as long as it’s not too much.”
“Blue Shark.” Another person couldn’t help but shout, “If he really wants us to crawl like a dog, then he might as well tell me to go to hell.”
Luo ZhouZhou, drawn by his voice, looked over at him, and with a flick of his wrist, a bead of blood instantly appeared on the vendor’s neck.
The vendor shouted with his eyes closed, “Crawl, crawl, crawl a few times, tell me to crawl as much as I want.”
Luo ZhouZhou turned around, took one look at his neck, and when he saw the bead of blood slowly sliding down, his face didn’t change, he just moved the dagger out a little.
Blue Shark watched the scene without a word, and was secretly surprised.
“Apologize.” Luo ZhouZhou said.
Everyone suspected that they had heard wrong.
All this fuss, just for an apology?
No, there must be other conditions.
Blue Shark was clearly startled and asked, “An apology is a must, but what about other than an apology? What else do you want?”
At first those few people stared at Luo ZhouZhou with panic on their faces, fearing that he might make unreasonable demands. They didn’t dare to do anything under Blue Shark’s eyes, not to mention the vendor, who had a dagger at his throat. They could only stand there and wait, their faces crying without tears.
Luo ZhouZhou tilted his head in thought and simply said, “No more, just apologize. Sincerely apologize to me, and promise not to bully another Omega here again.”
The guys all looked at each other.
Blue Shark said, “Didn’t you hear him? Does he have to repeat himself?”
One of them reacted first and loudly took the opportunity, “I sincerely apologize to… to… for what I just did.”
He didn’t yet know what to call this seemingly weak, but fierce Omega.
“Vampire.” Luo ZhouZhou prompted.
“I sincerely apologize to Mr. Vampire for what I just did. And I swear that I will never bully a single Omega here again.”
Luo ZhouZhou added, “Neither can you bully any outside.”
“It’s not okay to bully the ones outside either.” As the man’s voice trailed off, the onlookers around him laughed, and some took out their terminals to film the show.
“Who’s next? Come on, don’t dawdle.” Seeing that no one continued to come forward to apologize, Blue Shark said with a sinking face.
“Come on, guys, hurry up, I can’t talk until you’re done.” The vendor was also anxiously urging.
The remaining people, unable to flee from the matter, all blushed and took turns apologizing and making promises. Everyone was laughing loudly, and numerous terminal screens were floating in the air, aiming at them, recording.
When several people had come forward to apologize, Blue Shark asked, “Mr. Vampire, are you satisfied now?”
Only then did Luo ZhouZhou let go of the vendor’s neck, put the dagger back, and answered, “Not satisfied.”
The men looked at him nervously for a moment, and the vendor covered his neck and stumbled out of the booth.
“So tell me, what else are you dissatisfied with?” Blue Shark asked.
Luo ZhouZhou looked at the dagger in his hand and said, “I will only find it acceptable if they really don’t bully another Omega in the future and it won’t happen again.”
“It will be enforced.”
Luo ZhouZhou looked up at Blue Shark.
“They will keep their promise, I will keep an eye on them and not allow them to break their oath.”
The men, including the vendor, made a few more reassurances, and left amidst laughter, not even bothering to pack up their own booths. The onlookers, seeing the show was over, gradually dispersed, and only Luo ZhouZhou and Blue Shark remained.
“Mr. Vampire, may I ask, did you come to the trading floor to buy something, or do you have something to offer?” Blue Shark asked.
Luo ZhouZhou hesitated and replied, “I’m looking for someone.”
“Looking for who?”
“I’m looking for Li ChengYang.”
Blue Shark seemed flabbergasted and asked, “Why are you looking for Li ChengYang?”
“His sister asked me to give him a message.”
Blue Shark looked down at his toes, “Go ahead.”
Blue Shark said, “I am Li ChengYang.”
After being stunned for a few seconds, Luo ZhouZhou suspiciously asked, “Then they obviously know you, why didn’t they tell me when I said I was looking for Li ChengYang?”
Blue Shark raised his head and said, “The people here only know me as Blue Shark, no one knows my real name.” Then he added, “What message did Xiao Yu ask you to pass?”
Once Luo ZhouZhou heard him mention Xiao Yu, he was finally relieved, “You really are Li ChengYang.”
“Yes.” Blue Shark nodded his head.
Luo ZhouZhou solemnly said, “Xiao Yu said that the institute has been giving her a new drug, and she will soon be well, so don’t worry about her. Also, the institute doesn’t allow the use of terminals, so she can’t take videos to show you.”
Blue Shark was silent again, and after a moment, he quietly spoke, “What does she look like now?”
Luo ZhouZhou quickly snapped his mouth shut.
“Go ahead, I know what she said was all to comfort me,” Blue Shark said.
Luo ZhouZhou glanced at him, “She looks a little old.”
Even though Blue Shark said he knew it all, he was still startled for a moment when he heard that. Luo ZhouZhou also stood silently and thoughtfully did not disturb him.
Blue Shark came back to his senses after a while and asked Luo ZhouZhou, “How did you get in here?”
Luo ZhouZhou said, “I met Daisy Rose at your door, and she gave me directions, and asked me to give her name, so I came in.”
Blue Shark frowned and asked, “Daisy Rose? It’s not like she knows I’m Li ChengYang.”
“I met her in front of your house, she said you wouldn’t be home for a few days and told me to come here to find you.”
Blue Shark said, “She’s a known liar in our area, and no one who knows her will believe her.”
“Then why did she do it?” Luo ZhouZhou asked, a little startled.
“Did you have money on you that she found out about?” Blue Shark pondered, “If I’m not mistaken, her original plan was to coax you into the trading ground, then notify her accomplices, pretend to sell you something, and cheat you out of your money.”
Luo ZhouZhou closed his mouth.
Blue Shark asked again, “Did she also ask you for money when she gave you directions?”
Luo ZhouZhou took out his wallet and opened it to show him, “Here, she grabbed two on her own.”
Blue Shark wiped his face, took out his own wallet, took out two banknotes and put them in Luo ZhouZhou’s wallet, then handed it back to him, and said, “Be more careful in the future.”
“Come on, I’ll walk you out.” Blue Shark said, “That Daisy Rose, I’ll go take care of her too.”
They walked out of the trading floor gate and stopped on the sidewalk to wait for a taxi.
“Next time you want to come, just directly give my name. But you’ve made a name for yourself on the trading floor today, so even if you don’t call for me, I don’t think anyone will dare to stop you.” Blue Shark explained, “You helped Xiao Yu with the letter, I accept the favor and will return it when I have the chance.”
“You don’t have to return it. Xiao Yu and I are friends.” Luo ZhouZhou said.
“That’s between you and Xiao Yu, but I’ve accepted your favor, so I must pay you back. Especially after what happened today, and for helping me with the letter.” Blue Shark said, “If you need anything in the future, just call me, I will help you as long as I can.”
“Okay.” Luo ZhouZhou nodded his head. But he didn’t think he would come here again.
Chu Feng and Chen SiHan walked out the front door of the hotel and stood on the steps talking, waiting for the porter to bring the car around.
This was the busiest area in Bayard, so the hotel was not low class either. Chu Feng looked across the street as he rubbed his aching temples from the hangover.
When his eyes unexpectedly passed over one spot, he suddenly stopped. He dropped the hand on his temple and narrowed his eyes dangerously.
Chen SiHan, who was still talking, got no response, so he followed his gaze, and slowly stopped talking as well.
“Isn’t that Blue Shark, the No. 1 known dangerous man in the police department? Why does the person standing next to him look… like your Little Tail?”
