Garet said, “What Phoebe said was true. She had just met someone for dinner, and after a meal, when she came out, there was no sign of Joel, and her phone was out of service.
Yuan Zixu was slightly stunned, then he frowned and said in a low voice: “With Joel’s character, he would not leave his post without a reason, and he would not lose contact without a reason. Both of them happened at the same time, so I am afraid that he has really met with an accident …… This matter seems to be very difficult indeed ……”
Garet blurted out, “Master Yuan, have you ever heard that there are experts in China whose strength exceeds that of Joel?”
“Never heard of it.” Yuan Zixu spoke up, “As far as I know, there is not even a single five-star martial artist in China, not to mention, if it is as Miss Phoebe said, she was in the box just a wall away, yet she never heard any movement of the fight, this proves that if there is really a mastermind behind this matter, the strength of the mastermind behind it is much more than simply exceeding Joel!”
He said with a grave expression, “Even I can’t kill or kidnap Joel without a sound! Because even if Joel is not as strong as me, he can still fight me for at least a few dozen rounds, and if the two of us were to go all out against each other, the noise would be so loud that it could be heard from several kilometres away.”
Yuan Zixu’s analysis startled Garet and he opened his mouth to ask, “Master Yuan, in your opinion, if someone could really kill or kidnap Joel silently, what level of strength would this person be?”
“What level ……” Yuan Zixu’s eyelids fluttered lightly and he spoke seriously, “I’m afraid that it would be difficult to do so within the Bright Realm, so the other party’s strength would be at least at the Dark Realm!”
“The Dark Realm ……” Garet murmured, “Didn’t Master Yuan say that Dark Realm experts have not been seen in the world for at least ten years ……”
“Yes ……” Yuan Zixu nodded and said in a deep voice: “More than ten years ago, my master had said in a letter that the only few Dark Realm experts, had gone missing and there was no news even today. “
Garet asked, “Then, could Joel’s disappearance be related to the Dark Realm experts?”
Yuan Zixu, with a grave look on his face, said, “It’s not impossible …… , but I can’t figure out, even if there really were Dark Realm experts in Aurous Hill, how could they have attacked Joel? Joel went to Aurous Hill only a few days ago, did he offend someone?”
After saying that, he hurriedly said to Garet, “Elder Flynn, please ask Miss Phoebe if she has offended anyone in Aurous Hill these days, I believe that even if there is a Dark Realm expert, he would not strike at a junior for no reason, unless there is some kind of trouble or misunderstanding!”
Garet nodded and busily said, “I’ll ask Phoebe right now!”
In the farmhouse by the roadside of National Highway 104 in Aurous Hill, Phoebe still hadn’t waited for news from Joel.
Joel’s phone number still didn’t work, and Rukky shan was leading the hackers and trying to figure out how to decipher the surrounding surveillance footage, so she hadn’t returned any valuable clues either.
Charlie wade saw that Phoebe seemed a bit indecisive, so he asked her tentatively, “Miss Zhan, do you want me to accompany you to the police?”
Phoebe shook her head and said, “Mr. Joel has only been missing for less than half an hour, and he is a fully mobile adult, so I guess the police won’t put a lot of effort into an adult who has only been missing for half an hour.”
Charlie wade nodded slightly and sighed, “That makes sense, too, if you go and tell the police officers that a grown man has been missing for half an hour, I’m afraid you’ll be treated as a brainwashed person who makes fun of the police officers ……”
Phoebe sighed and was about to speak when her phone suddenly received a text message from her grandfather.
She had just clicked on the text message when she heard Charlie wade actually say most of the text message, “Miss Zhan, did you offend someone?”
And the text message from grandpa read, “Phoebe, did you offend someone in Aurous Hill?”
