In their minds, Hao Jian is careful, cautious, and has a flexible mind. Apart from being shamed by Li Chang and the others at the gas station, it seemed impossible for Hao Jian to be tricked.

Moreover, after encountering the situation in the gas station, she has learned her lesson and has become more careful and cautious. How could such a person be outsmarted by others again?

At this moment, they saw Hao Jian turning in through the window. When they were about to speak, Hao Jian made a silencing gesture, “Shh. . .”

They quickly realized that something was going on and quietly walked over, “What’s wrong?”

“When we arrived, I noticed that there are surveillance cameras at the entrance of the second floor, the living room, the dining room, and the common area on the second floor, and they’re still working.”

They were alarmed but still managed to lower their voices, “Someone’s here?!”

No one responded to him, making him panic even more. He rushed to the living room and didn’t find them either.

Suddenly, there was a pig-like squeal coming from the upper floors, “Ah, it hurts! Don’t do it, I surrender. I surrender!”

Peng Mao took a deep breath, grabbed the crowbar and followed to the third floor.

The common area on the third floor was relatively small. It had an open-air balcony of 40 to 50 square feet and two rooms. In one of the rooms, Hao Jian, Lian Ru Ning, and Xin Ting were gathered there.
