He groaned from pain, and the knife fell from his hand to the floor with a cling. Making use of the opportunity, Xinghe collected all her strength and trampled on the man's foot. She heard the man yelp, and the pressure on her neck loosened. She then grabbed his arm and flung him over her, and the man landed heavily on the floor.
Just as Xinghe planned to pursue her assault, the man suddenly pulled out a gun and fired at her!
Xinghe heard two sounds immediately. One was the gunfire, and another was herself slamming against the wall. Xinghe was feeling light-headed, and before she could recover, the man had retreated back into the room, and the door was slammed shut.
"I will kill you if you dare to come in!" the man inside threatened darkly. The next second, Xinghe felt herself being picked up from the floor and dragged to hide behind a corner. She raised her head in confusion to look at this person who had appeared from the dark. Who is he?
There was no light, so Xinghe couldn't really tell who he was.
"Who are you?" she asked in a whisper. Her voice was stable, and there was no trace of fear.
"Someone with the same purpose as you," Mubai answered in a similarly low voice. Then he ignored her as he pulled out his phone to call his two bodyguards to come and assist him. Xinghe though was shocked. Someone with the same purpose as me? What does he mean by that? And who really is he?
However, the biggest shock came from the fact he was using Hwa Xia's language when he made the call. For some reason, at that moment, Xinghe was reminded of the man she had seen two times that night. She was instantly certain, it was him!
He did indeed have his own motive. However, it did not seem like he was hostile against her; he even saved her life. Xinghe did not press but said directly, "Lylian is probably harmed. I smelled blood earlier."
"Why are you looking for her? What do you know about her?" Mubai turned around to question her. Even though there was not much light, his eyes were shining; only a powerful man could manage to have such clear eyes.
Xinghe shook her head. "I don't know much about her. I have no clue what is happening."
Her only clue was Lylian; as to how she fitted into this whole confusing situation, she really had no clue. In fact, she was still confused about the whole situation.
Mubai wanted to ask her something more when he felt something was wrong. There was sound coming from outside the building. He rushed to the window and looked down. He saw a man jumping from the building, and he was carrying a person on his shoulder.
"He is running away!" Mubai hissed vehemently. He then jumped over the windowsill and dropped down to the floor. This was the second floor, yet he jumped down without blinking an eye.
Xinghe saw this and rushed downstairs as fast as she could. Alas, when she reached the ground floor, she could only see Mubai's shadow running away. Xinghe used her greatest speed to catch up to him, and Mubai was giving chase to the assassin.
The assassin was running with Lylian on his back. He jumped into a car that was parked by the road. Then, he tossed Lylian to the back and drove away.
Mubai almost caught up to the car, but ultimately, he was one second too late. He could only watch as the car drove away.
"Get in!" Xinghe had already predicted the assassin's action, so she hailed a car by the side of the road.
