One Child Two Treasures: The Billionaire Chief’s Good Wife - Chapter 4465
Chapter 4465 The Other Side 434
“Don’t worry, Leo. I’ll take good care of your mother and daughter.”
Leo seemed to breathe a sigh of relief when he heard that. The corner of his lips twitched a little and his eyes softened. He let go of the machine gun and with trembling hands, tried to take something out of the inner pocket of his combat uniform.
The actor immediately reached out to help him search, only to pull out a photograph.
In the photograph was a family of three. An old mother in her 50s and a young girl snuggled in a man’s arms. And the man was Leo.
“Are you looking for this?” Hua Jin handed the photo over.
Leo hugged the photo and closed his eyes in satisfaction. Then, he was still.
The actor opened his mouth, but his eyes were now bloodshot. “I’m sorry…” He lowered his head, feeling extremely sad. If it weren’t for him, this man would not have died. And this old mother would not have lost her son, and the little girl would not be without a father…
A sense of guilt took root deep in his heart.
Gong Jie closed his eyes for a moment before opening them again. His eyes were bloodshot as he floored the accelerator and drove away from the fallen city.
“Leo’s 29 this year. He has a mother and a daughter. He’s been on missions for years because of his mercenary status. His wife left him three years ago and is now re-married in Canada.” Amidst the boundless wilderness, the man silently looked at Leo, who was lying in the car with a surprisingly calm expression. “He was supposed to have retired after 28, after erasing all his memories of Mercenary Paradise and return to his family to be reunited with his mother and daughter. But he said that he wanted to save up a dowry for his daughter. He also said that he was healthy and would have no problem serving for another two years. I had planned to force him to retire in another year. By then, he’d definitely have a few million yuan in retirement money and will retire very comfortably.”
“But…” Hua Jin looked at the lifeless body in the car that had long turned cold, and his heart was filled with sorrow. “I didn’t kill him but he died for me.”
“It’s not your fault. You don’t have to blame yourself. Mercenaries of the Mercenary Paradise are already indifferent to life and death. Life and death are already commonplace.”
Gong Jie turned around and smiled. “I’ll settle his daughter and mother down and prepare a generous dowry for her, but the only regret is that I won’t be able to take him back with us.”
Hua Jin looked towards the car.
At this point, several cracks had appeared on the car’s tank, and fuel had started leaking. It was a great fortune that there was no explosion. There was no way such a car could reach its destination. There was no way Gong Jie could take him along. They could only leave him here.
Hua Jin turned around and looked at the vast wilderness. In the distance, he could see the spiraling smoke. Previously, he had attended international conferences and, as an ambassador for peace, had given speeches on peace. However, those speeches were written by someone else in advance.
During those times, he had never thought that the war in this world would bring about such terrifying disasters. But now, he felt a deep disgust for war.
The two men turned and walked till they were a few hundred meters away from the car. Gong Jie turned around, narrowed his eyes, and aimed the gun at the puddle of diesel under the car.
