Chapter 60: Wet

She didn’t know if the suspicious man was a trafficker or something else, but for safety’s sake, Gu Qingming still thought it was safer to bring the children home.

Children could not resist temptation.
How many lost children had been carried away by strangers with snacks and toys?

Gu Qingming returned to the barnyard drenched.
In the sand, more than ten children were playing.

Shi Jiahao and Shi Junxuan, who were playing happily, heard someone say, “Shi Junxuan, is that your aunt? Why is she wet?”

The two children looked up immediately when they heard that.
Sure enough, they saw their aunt arrive, but when they saw that she was wet, they immediately put down the sand in their hands and ran over.
They asked with concern, “Aunt, what’s wrong? Did you fall into the water?”

Gu Qingming smiled and said, “Aunt accidentally fell into the ditch.
Can you send Aunt home?”

“Okay!” The two children replied in unison.

“Aunt, why did you fall into the water?” Shi Junxuan asked in confusion.

Of course, he was still young and wouldn’t think too deeply.

It wouldn’t occur to him to wonder how his aunt had fallen into the water when there weren’t any ditches or pools between the house and where they were playing.

Gu Qingming said in embarrassment, “Aunt got lost accidentally.
Then, I walked to a big pond and accidentally fell into it.”

boxn ovel.

“Oh, I see!”

The two children nodded.

The large pond was a certain distance from the village.
It was also where the villagers of Stoneback Village farmed.

Children in the village rarely went there to play.

Gu Qingming followed the two children home drenched.

Her wet clothes clung to her body, outlining the perfect curves of Gu Qingming’s figure.
Along the way, she attracted strange looks from the villagers, especially those men.

They all knew that Shi Tietou’s granddaughter was very beautiful.
Unexpectedly, not only was she beautiful, but her figure was even better.
She was leagues above the women in their village.

Of course, they were a little tempted, but they could not do anything.
They could not even tease her with words.

If Shiu Tietou’s family found out, they would be done for dealing with all the males in the family..

When Gu Qingming returned home, her grandmother, aunt, and others were shocked.
They immediately came over and said with concern, “Darling, what’s wrong? Why are you so wet?”

Shi Jiahao said, “Great-grandma, Aunt fell into the pond.”

“Falling into a pond?” her grandmother asked with some surprise.
“Why would she fall into a pond?”

Gu Qingming said to her grandmother seriously, “Grandma, are Grandpa and Uncle at home? I have something very important to tell them.”

Her grandmother frowned.
“Is it important?”

“Yes, it’s very important.” Gu Qingming lowered her head and muttered in her grandmother’s ear.

Granny looked more and more concerned.

Then, she said, “Darling, go and change.
I’ll call your uncles back.”

Eldest Aunt looked at her mother-in-law’s serious expression and her heart skipped a beat.
She thought to herself, “Nothing will happen, right?”

Her aunt smiled and said, “Ming’er, quickly go and change.
Although it’s a hot day, it’s not good for your health to wear wet clothes for too long.”

Gu Qingming nodded and said, “Okay!”

When Gu Qingming went to her room to change, her aunt looked at her mother-in-law’s serious expression and couldn’t help but call out, “Mom!”

Grandma looked around and said with a solemn expression, “Ming’er just told me that Boss Liu might be a human trafficker.”

Her aunt did not react for a moment.
“Boss Liu, which Boss Liu?”

“The Boss Liu who’s buying watermelons now!”

“How is that possible?” Aunt said in surprise.
“This Boss Liu comes to buy watermelons every year and is very familiar with everyone.
How can he be a human trafficker? Could there be a mistake?”

Her grandmother shook her head.
“I’m not sure yet.”

She looked at the two children and said, “But for safety’s sake, let’s not let the children go out for a while.”

At this point, she seemed to have thought of something.
Her expression turned ugly for a moment before she instructed, “Tell the three daughters-in-law at home not to go out alone in the future.
If they want to go out, they have to go together!”

His aunt’s expression changed.

“Mom, what do you mean?” Her aunt suddenly thought of something.

That human trafficker might know the women here.

Her grandmother nodded.
“We can’t be sure yet, but for safety’s sake, the children aren’t allowed to go out for the time being.
The wives and Ming’er have to be in groups, too.
And it’s best if they’re accompanied by the men in the family.”

There was no need to worry about the older women in the family.

However, the daughters-in-law were still young and could give birth.
They would be the targets of human traffickers.

Thinking of this, Grandma couldn’t help but worry about Gu Qingming again.

This child was beautiful and unfamiliar with this village.
She was the best target for human traffickers.

“Let’s not talk about it now.
I’ll contact your father.
Quickly contact the brothers and come back quickly.
Whether this is true or false, we can’t afford to gamble, so we have to confirm it.
Everyone, come back and discuss the rules.
Oh, and call back those daughters-in-law that are working.”

“Okay, Mom, I’ll call now!”

Gu Qingming, who was changing in her room upstairs, was also thinking about how to expose the human traffickers.
It would be best if she could catch all of them in one fell swoop.

If that Boss Liu was a watermelon vendor on the surface and his true identity might be a human trafficker, his mission might very well be to go to various villages to find targets.

The item he was talking about was supposed to be beautiful and had no background.
Could he be talking about her?

Boss Liu came to the village every year and was very familiar with the village.
He probably knew very well which girls and which children were in the village.
There was no need to check their background.

Only an outsider like her needed to have her background checked.

She thought of that sharp gaze in the morning.
It had come from him.
At that time, she was very likely to be his target.

Thinking of this, Gu Qingming had an idea.

Whether it was or not, she had to test it.

Of course, on that premise, she needed to ensure her personal safety.

Especially since she was pregnant.

Gu Qingming thought for a moment and made a call.

When the call went through, she said, “Hello, Wenwen.
When you come over…”

… .

When Gu Qingming went downstairs, she saw her grandmother and aunt in the living room with serious expressions and comforted them.
“Grandma, Aunt, don’t worry.
This matter isn’t confirmed yet.
Perhaps I guessed wrong.”

“No, Ming’er, you probably don’t know.” Her grandmother shook her head.
“Girls go missing every year in the outer village.”
