e, men and women have different physiological characteristics.
A twelve-year-old boy has considerable strength, not to mention the two men who are now missing are young men between seventeen and eighteen.”


“Young men of seventeen or eighteen years are when they are the strongest, and no one will buy a mature boy.” Gu Xizhou explained lightly.
These insights had come from the materials that he had read a while ago before he arrived in this world. 


“It makes sense…” Xie Wenhuo said.


They asked around and found that the parents of this yard didn’t seem to know much about this matter, and they all agreed that it was a trafficking incident.


“There are no useful clues from them, we can only go out and see.”


They prepared to go out together.
The parents that were at home did not seem to care.
Upon seeing the ten of them together, they thought that the traffickers wouldn’t be so daring, so they heard the kids tell them they were going out to play and just waved their hands while reminding them to stay safe. 


The laneway with the corpse was the only way for them to leave the courtyard.
Gu Xizhou’s feet stepped in the pool of blood, and his attitude was very cold, an incredible cold calmness as he was the first to walk out.
The people behind him had a shadow in their heart because of this laneway, and their faces were pale white, as if they would faint any time the more they looked at the corpse. 


After Gu Xizhou, Si Yu and Fang Zhi walked out, Xie Wenhuo and his wife Xue Xiao followed.
The two had a very good relationship.
Gu Xizhou saw Xie Wenhuo holding his wife’s hand and leading her across the pool of blood, comforting his wife, but Gu Xizhou could clearly hear Xie Wenhuo’s tense heartbeat, and he could see that the calm on Xie Wenhuo’s face was all pretense, all in order to comfort his wife.


Xie Wenhuo was the core person in the team.
After he came out, other people also endured fear and disgust one after another and left the narrow alleyway of the yard.

The town came into sight the moment one walked out of the alley.
The town wasn’t very big–on the contrary, it was very small, with only one street.
At that moment, the shops on the street were closed and no one was on the road.



Gu Xizhou was a little helpless: “There’s no one at this time.”


“En, we can come out again later,” Si Yu looked up at the sun in the sky and said.
“Today the sun is good.
We will come out after lunch.
There must be someone at that time.”


Xie Wenhuo was a little surprised and asked, “How do you know there will be someone at that time?”


Si Yu pointed to the side of the street and said lightly: “Although this town is close to the scenic area, it is similar to other rural areas.
There are more elderly people, and we also have more elderly people in the yard we live in.”


“En.” Xie Wenhuo frowned slightly, but Si Yu’s words were not wrong.
Eight of the remaining ten were left-behind children, and only two of them had a parent at home.
“But what does this have to do with this?”


Gu Xizhou took the lead and said: “After lunch, they’re very free, and the sun is big.
The elderly will come out for a walk.
At this time, they’re usually cooking lunch for the children.
There are naturally no people on the street.”


“It makes sense.” Xie Wenhuo nodded.


They returned without success.
After lunch, the sun was shining warmly on them.
The time now was more ideal and very comfortable, so they went out again.


Sure enough, there were a lot of old people on the road at this time, with their hands behind their backs, walking slowly step by step, chatting while walking.


The town was not big, so many people know each other.
They had barely walked a few steps into town when people started to call out to them, greeting them. 



Old man: “You mean that Li Ming and Liu Shurong? I heard that their parents had rushed back and were looking for them in town.
After they came back, they severely scolded their old parents at home.
I don’t think they’re doing the right thing.”


“A child that’s so old, if he gets lost, how can you blame the elderly for that?”


“Do you know where the parents of Li Ming and Liu Shurong are?” Gu Xizhou asked.

The old man pointed to the mountain next to him and said, “They went to organize people to patrol the mountain!”


Gu Xizhou’s sight shifted to the mountain next to them.
The mountain was tall and upright with a steep slope, and the lush trees covered each other.
Occasionally, a dog’s barks could be heard from the mountain.


“Woof woof woof!”


The old man shook his head and said, “Have you heard the dog barking? After the two children disappeared, they found some strong young people in the town to take their dogs and help search Muguan Mountain.
They’ve searched for so long but there’s still no sight of them.
I’m afraid they aren’t even in our town anymore.” 


After they thanked the old men, the group’s eyes fell on the mountain.


“Woof woof woof!”


“Woof woof woof!”



“Woof woof woof!”


The barking noises rang out incessantly.
Xue Xiao walked with the timid girl, who held a wooden stick as a cane in her hand, and the girl kept gasping as she climbed the mountain with the rest of the group.
They climbed around half of the mountain before they finally met someone. 


The figure was ahead of them.
Gu Xizhou stepped forward and shouted, “Wait for us!”


The dark-skinned man in front turned back and saw Gu Xizhou and the others.
He frowned and said: “How dare you kids go out? Aren’t you afraid of being abducted?”


Si Yu pointed to the people behind him: “We are here together, the bad guys would not dare to take all of us.
We wanted to come over to help as well.
Are there clues on how to find Li Ming and Liu Shurong?”


The dark-skinned man shook his head.
Obviously he also knew Gu Xizhou and the other children from the town and said, “Sigh, we haven’t found them yet.
Both parents are in a hurry.”


“We will help together too!” Si Yu said very enthusiastically.
The dark-skinned man sighed helplessly.
He saw that they had firm attitudes and agreed to let them help.


They helped to search for a while, but still didn’t find any clues.
In the end, they could only find out more about the disappearance process of Liu Shurong and Li Ming from the residents of this town.
