Little Terrified Bun - Chapter 51
“You’re saying… to forfeit the last payment.” The eldest brother appeared to be somewhat reluctant to give it up.
“Which one is more important, money or life? Using the time that Lu Xiaoer will buy us by circling around the police, let’s get as far as we can. Regarding Lu Xiaoer, we can only count him out of luck for being captured by the police. We don’t have any other way, we can’t just sacrifice ourselves with him.”
“Enough, let’s go.”
The four of them had planned to leave everything behind and drive in the car they had prepared earlier.
On the other end, Lu Xiaoer was also not a kind person. He wasn’t in the mood to be a savior. In addition, the police will have to use him to find Wei Jing, so he won’t be captured before they find the child. After he led them around for some time, he drove the car towards their meeting place without any hesitation.
The police didn’t want to alert the kidnapper, so their car stayed pretty far behind.
With only one look, Lu Xiaoer could already tell that the yard was empty. Sh**, he sneered without showing any of his anger on his face. When he previously scouted, he had found a deep river at the back of the grove, so while the police were still behind, he headed towards that direction.
Lu Xiaoer has great swimming abilities. He planned to take advantage of the pouring rain to fling off the police, then cross the river bank.
Unfortunately, luck wasn’t in his favor. After ten minutes, the pouring rain suddenly became weaker, then weaker, until there was none. Lu Xiaoer gnashed his teeth with hatred, but could only loop around the grove. He was more familiar with the routes here than the police, he knew exactly where he could be hidden and where the good hiding spots were.
On the police’s side, they had more people and each of them held a bright flashlight; they were well prepared for night time actions.
“It looks like the rain has stopped?” With a face full of redness, Wei Jing pushed the Xu Jiahui who was by his side with his weak limbs. “Wake up. We can’t stay here any longer. We need to leave.”
Xu Jiahui rubbed his eyes and let out a big yawn. Although he didn’t sleep well, he recovered much from his mental fatigue. Previously, Wei Jing had first saved him, then he helped him escape from the kidnapper’s grasp, so now, he would do everything he was told.
“Where would we head towards?” Xu Jiahui asked.
“Let’s just keep moving forward!” A few occasional rushed breaths could be heard from Wei Jing’s mouth, the pain of his brain swelling made him unable to think straight, “Go as far as we can.”
“Ok.” Xu Jiahui mn-ed obediently.
The sky was so dark that Xu Jiahui couldn’t see Wei Jing’s pained face. He just held on to the hand of the person beside him, afraid that those sturdy men would suddenly jump out from nowhere and capture them.
“Wei Jing… listen to it, is there some sound that’s calling our name?” Xu Jiahui pricked up his ears to listen and constantly turned back to check.
“I… I don’t hear it.” The child’s voice sounded lifeless.
“Oh, then I probably heard it wrong!” Xu Jiahui replied.
Wei Jing became his most trusted person. If Wei Jing said no, then it’s nothing for sure!! For sure!!! But…he felt like he really heard it! No, they were all false illusions, false illusions, it must be his false illusion caused by extreme starvation! QAQ
Xu Jiahui rubbed his belly. So hungry! It’s so painful!
“Wei Jing, when can we get out of here!” Xu Jiahui tightened his fist dispiritedly and pressed his lips together. “Thank you for saving me previously. I have caused you trouble, I’m sorry.”
Even though he was still young, he was aware that he was the one who caused Wei Jing to be hit by the kidnappers. He even stepped on Wei Jing’s shoulder to climb the tree, and Wei Jing had to find him a shelter to avoid the rain. Xu Jiahui felt extremely ashamed, especially at the thought of his words of wanting to become a policeman.
