Chapter 879 Ronin Disappeared

Ronin was sleeping soundly when he overheard a ringtone in his sleep. The ringtone was specially made by him and connected to his heart. Not only would it have a sound alert, but it would also vibrate the inside of his arm for stimulation.

The moment the ringtone rang, Ronin instantly popped into a sitting position.

He reached for his cell phone at the side and took it out to check. He received a text message from a strange phone number. The content was with only one word, which was particularly concise. ” Go!”

Ronin frowned as he read it, and then quickly got up.

He didn’t have many things with him. He picked up a coat and pushed open the window. He climbed over through the protruding windowsill on the side.

He was agile, and these were not difficult tasks for him.

Easily climbing over the guardrail, he arrived at a nearby room. Not long after he entered the nearby room, there was an immediate commotion in the room where he had been just now.

Ronin hid in the corner, afraid to make any noise. He observed every move in the neighboring room through the surveillance camera. Two people were coming with masks on their faces. Ronin was unable to see their faces clearly.

He recognized them instantly, though, as Zobber and Withal.

The two left the room after searching around and not seeing Ronin.

Looking at the scene of them leaving, Ronin felt a bit reluctant.

His former friends were right in front of him but he didn’t even qualify to say hello to them.

Zobber and Withal had only left when a group of men in black came. These people were all masked. Ronin didn’t know them.

They rummaged through the room for a while. Only after making sure that Ronin really wasn’t in the room did they leave in a hurry.

Ronin watched the surveillance video on the screen and immediately left through the safe passage after making sure they were gone.

He didn’t dare to stay for a moment. If he did, he was very likely to be caught back.

“Sir, Ronin is gone.” The people ordered to search lowered their heads and bent down in front of the black- robed man with their faces full of regret.

At that moment, they were already trembling with nervousness. Losing the target person after them was their greatest incompetence and they had to be severely punished by the organization.

The black-robed man didn’t say anything just sighed softly.

The people lowering their heads and bending down were then scared out of their wits.

Finn was on the side and didn’t even dare to take a breath. He had originally promised that he would not lose Ronin, but unexpectedly, he lost him so quickly. “Sir, before we went there, Zobber and her team went to check Ronin’s latest address. Shortly before we took action, they went looking for Ronin too. But I’m pretty sure Ronin wasn’t taken by them. It seemed he knew in advance that we’d go to him.”

They received a message stating that Zobber and her team were investigating Ronin’s whereabouts and had already obtained a rough direction.

To prevent Ronin from falling into Zobber’s hands and saying things he shouldn’t, they then made the first arrangement to grab Ronin.

Unexpectedly, Ronin had actually run away.

“He can’t run away!” the black-robed man said calmly. He took out his cell phone and threw it to Finn at the side.

The video playing on the cell phone was exactly the scene of Ronin coming out from inside the hotel. It turned out that the black-robed man had not only arranged for someone to watch Ronin but also set up many surveillance cameras in the neighborhood to monitor Ronin’s whereabouts.

There was a red dot on the screen that kept flashing. Finn could tell at a glance that it was a location tracker. He looked up at the black-robed man in surprise. Sir, did you implant a chip in Ronin’s body to locate him?”

The black-robed man didn’t deny it, but just instructed Finn, “Arrange for someone to watch on him. Be more secretive this time.”

He had long known that Ronin was cunning. Ronin was someone trained by Catherine herself, so how could he be bad?

So the black-robed man took advantage of Ronin’s unconsciousness and implanted a subcutaneous localization in the back of his neck, making it easier to monitor Ronin’s movements in the later stage.

“Okay,” Finn replied loudly, not daring to hesitate at all.

He knew they were lucky enough not to be punished this time. If they fail to complete the task again, they might have to kill themselves to apologize without the need for the black-robed man to ask for it.

After leaving the hotel, Ronin found a dilapidated small room to stay in.

The rent there was cheap. It was very crowded, and there were also all kinds of people there. Finding someone there was not an easy task, so it was a good place for him to hide.

After Ronin settled down, he took out his cell phone and replied with a text message to the phone number that had just sent him the message. [Safe.]

It was one simple word but it was enough to express everything.

He sat by the bedside, recalling the things that happened recently, his expression becoming increasingly eerie.

Things were much more fun than he thought they would be, and he was getting excited.

Ronin received a reply shortly after lying down. [Go back.]

After receiving the message, Ronin’s face showed a faint smile. He thought in his heart, “That’s really a good way. The most dangerous place is the safest place.”

Although he already had a decision in his mind, he didn’t think of taking immediate action because he wanted to sleep now.

Late in the night, Branden returned to his apartment after taking care of the company’s business.

He carefully pushed open the door. The room wasn’t all dark because Catherine didn’t turn off all the lights in the room. There was a small lamp on, which should be specifically kept for him by Catherine.

The warm yellow light was not bright enough, but it warmed Branden’s heart.

When he entered the room, he saw Catherine sleeping on the sofa soundly.

Branden’s fatigue instantly dissipated at that moment. Taking off his jacket, he slowly went forward and gently squatted beside Catherine.

Catherine opened her eyes in a daze, and her muffled voice carried a rare softness that was pleasant and melodious. “You come back?”

“Uh-huh!” Branden answered, then pressed his whole head against her face. “Why are you sleeping on the sofa? It’s too soft. It’s not good for your back to sleep here.”

“I fell asleep when I spent time with my phone. I was too tired to get up and go to bed,” Catherine muttered. Perhaps due to being too tired, her eyes didn’t fully open.

Branden loved her lazy look and gently reached out to pick her up. “Let me take you to bed.”

It didn’t matter if she was lazy because she had him around.

Catherine’s body was instantly picked up by him. She lay softly in his arms and allowed him to carry her into the room and place her on the bed.

The two of them were close together, and Catherine’s scent rushed straight into Branden’s nose.

Obviously, they were using the same body wash, but the scent of Catherine’s body would just make him feel a little more fragrant and comfortable.

After placing her on the bed, Branden originally thought of getting up and leaving, but after smelling the scent of her, he couldn’t help but lean down and sniff again.

His nose rubbed back and forth on her neck. He didn’t want to stop it.

Upon noticing his abnormality, Catherine reached out and pushed him away with one hand. “Stop it. I’m tired and want to rest.”

Her words made Branden feel a bit disappointed. Instead of continuing though, he got up and left, so Catherine could get some rest. “I’ll let you sleep. I’m going to take a shower. I’ll be right back.”

Catherine Swann, a simple countryside girl, was having a leisurely and carefree life in the countryside. She thought she could have a happy life there for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, life had other plans for her. Her grandfather left a will for her, making her the inheritor of the Swanns’ billion-dollar fortune. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, he also arranged a marriage for her.

Branden Duncan, the only heir of the wealthiest family in Casier, was the dream prince charming of almost all the women in Casier. But Catherine turned him down in public. Instead of being angry about it, he was attracted by Catherine's cold eyes.Although Catherine seemed to be a girl with a simple life in the countryside, she was not simple. What kind of identity did she have? How would she deal with her unexpected fiancé and the opposition from the rest of the Swanns to her inheritance of the Swanns’ fortune?

Chapter 1 Return of the Jinx At Vicente Swann's funeral. As the Swanns were one of the three prominent families in Casier, Vicente's funeral was naturally packed with big shots and members of respected families in Casier. In the noisy venue, the arrival of a girl in a white T-shirt attracted the attention of everyone present. All of the people present were either rich or powerful. Despite being good-looking, the girl wore a cheap and battered T-shirt, setting her apart from everyone else at the funeral. Seeing how she walked straight toward the Swanns family, someone couldn't help asking curiously, "Who is she? Why is she sitting with the Swanns?" "I heard that she is Miss Catherine, the second daughter of the Swanns that had lived away from the family. Vicente only asked her to come back before he died." "Is that so? I heard that Vicente ordered the family to announce his will in front of everyone before he died. I guess she only returned for this!" ... The girl did not know that she had already become the topic of the guests' discussions. She looked calmly ahead with an indifferent expression on her face. Her eyes remained focused on Vicente's portrait in the middle of the venue. Nobody knew what she was thinking about at the time. At the sight of Catherine Swann like this, Liana Swann, the youngest and favorite daughter of the Swanns, couldn't help complaining to her mother, who was sitting next to her. "Mom, what is going on with this country girl? Grandpa has died. Even if she isn't sad, she should at least pretend to cry. What would the others think if the media took a photo of her like this later? She wouldn't even change her clothes when we asked her to. People that don't know better would think that the Swanns have mistreated her!" After hearing her youngest daughter's complaints, Rachael Swann furrowed her brows too. She thought that her youngest daughter did have a point. She never loved Catherine, her daughter from the countryside, dearly. In fact, Catherine pissed Rachael off just one day after she had returned. However, it was not the right time for Rachael to handle Catherine now. She planned to wait until the funeral was over before sending Catherine back to the countryside so that Catherine wouldn't continue to embarrass the Swanns here. Looking up, Rachael saw that her husband had arrived. She comforted her youngest daughter in a low voice, "Liana, be good. Your father is here. Bear with Catherine for now. We need to deal with what is important first!" Liana couldn't show her annoyance towards Catherine in public, so she could only choke back the complaints on the tip of her tongue. Nobody noticed that Catherine, who had been looking straight ahead, smiled lightly. The Swanns never spent time with Catherine, so they wouldn't know she had exceptional hearing. Even though Rachael and Liana spoke in a low voice, Catherine clearly heard every word of their exchange. Her mother truly did not love her! As Catherine stared at Vicente's portrait, her eyes flashed with a faint trace of sadness. Did she have to cry because of pain? ... Korbin Swann walked up the stage slowly. He gave a long speech first and expressed his views about how great Vicente was before finally announcing that the family would publicly announce Vicente's will. As many people knew this beforehand, the crowd was not too surprised. Vicente had a son and daughter. It was a no-brainer who would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. However, nobody understood why Vicente would make sure to make such a fuss to announce his will publicly. Was it just for formality? The lawyer Vicente trusted the most when he was still alive opened the sealed will and read it out loud. "After careful consideration, I, Vicente Swann, leave all my shares of the Swann Corporation, real estate properties, and a 500 million-dollar deposit at the Bank of Nospines to my granddaughter, Catherine Swann..." At the lawyer's words, the crowd gasped in shock. Not even the Swanns, everyone present was dumbfounded. Catherine Swann? Wasn't she the second daughter of the Swanns, the jinx that Vicente sent off to be raised in the countryside when she was young? How could it be? She would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. With their jaws dropped, everyone shared a similar look of horror. Except for Catherine, the center of the discussion. She still looked indifferent, as though nothing had happened. Her eyes were still fixed on Vicente's portrait in the center of the hall. Her lips parted slightly as she spoke in an almost inaudible voice. "Old man, what were you thinking?"
