Just as they entered the jungle, they could see the spotlights of several cars from afar.
HONK, HONK, HONK—
At the mountainside, a row of military vehicles hurriedly swept pass the trees, causing them to sway and tremble.
Concealed by the thicket, three bodies stayed away from sight. Lisa peeked at the trained troops rushing to the east through the gaps between the tree branches.
Only after the cars were long gone could Mu Yichen calm his erratic heart and sigh in relief.
“They’re not Vermilion Bird’s men.”
The girl originally asked for support from Vermilion Bird, but from the looks of it, those people were Mu Lianjue’s men.
Her wireless earphones were spoiled; thus, she had lost contact with Vermilion Bird. It seemed that they had to rely on themselves to reach the rendezvous point!
As the girl swept her gaze around, her thin lips brushed across the older boy’s fair cheek.
She was stunned enough to raise her gaze, only to find the boy looking at her calmly. She could not help but bit her lip.
Their proximity was close as they were intimately pressed against each other.
The girl could distinctly hear the warm pumping of his heart. Each thump was powerful.
She backed away seamlessly, only to have the boy pressing hand on her back to prevent her from moving a step.
They could hear the rustling of leaves due to the gentle breeze. They were thrown back into tranquility when the last vehicle drove past the mountainside and away from them.
Soon after, they were swamped in dead silence. It was so quiet that no one dared to shatter this moment.
The corner of Mu Yichen’s lips gradually arched slightly as a sharp dagger was pressed against his waist.
The girl coldly said in a low voice, “Let me go.”
Unused to being touched by people, not even a finger was laid on her!
This was a taboo to her!
To this little girl, the only person she must protect would always be Yun Tianyou.
Apart from him, no one else was within her scope of protection!
The older boy could not help smiling as he raised a brow. “Why are you so fierce? If I don’t let go, will you do it?”
She replied noncommittally, “I don’t deny that I have that intention.”
“Okay. Shall we give it a shot?”
He pressed the hand, which had been on her back, on her waist.
Caught off guard, she was pulled into his embrace. She attempted to beat him at his game by using all her strength to push him away, and this caused them to roll down the slightly sloping land near the thicket.
The sky spun as they were thrown into disarray, accompanied by their disheveled breathing.
She could only feel a prickling pain at her waist as she crashed into a few saplings on the hillside.
She raised her head and gazed at his cold expression, which had gradually become teasing.
The dizziness followed closely after as their bodies continued to roll down the hill.
She tried pushing him away but it was futile. As she heard a low grunt, she swiftly grabbed the roots of a small tree, finally bringing them to a stop.
The girl’s eyes glinted as she did a carp flip and stood up fiercely. She sat on his body and gripped his throat firmly. She coughed out the leaves in her mouth that she had unknowingly swallowed before coldly saying, “Are you seeking death?”
Youyou walked down the hillside, glancing at the two indignantly. “Your physiques are really good since you guys can still casually flirt and bicker with each other.” =_=
He was out to wow them with his words.
Mu Yichen: “?”
“Don’t let your energy go to waste. If not, we’ll never leave these mountains tonight.”
Only then did she let go of the older lad, walking to the younger boy’s side.
