Chapter 1379 Father and son bump into each other.
“Great-uncle, you adults are bad people! How can you bully us, children, like this? Poor me actually took your words for real, and now I’m at your mercy; how frustrating.”
He whined like a little, petulant lamb.
Somehow, for reasons unknown, his words gave Vermilion Bird the chill.
This was a scary version of the boy for sure.
Clearly, the boy was the worst, with his darkest, black-bellied trait. From appearance, he was being held hostage by Mu Lianjue and at the man’s mercy, but what of it?
The child looked weak and helpless outwardly, but in fact, he had sharp and jarring claws!
Poor man, does he really think that he’s got the upper hand now?
Yun Tianyou was only playing along out of pity for the poor old chap. The boy had long sent out signal upon confirmation that the device was harmless.
She had already passed the order to the snipers, except that there was no good chance to take down the man just yet.
The tense situation persisted due to the gun in his hand.
She decided to stall for time and hit the bull’s-eye the moment he let down his guard!
Looking proud and pleased with himself, Mu Lianjue was oblivious to the boy’s machination or the precarious situation he was in now. “He he! A kid is a kid through and through; a few words are enough to trick you! Still, I must give praise to where it’s due; you’re bold indeed to enter the tiger’s den!”
“Great-uncle, do you really dare to kill me?”
The boy smiled up at him tauntingly with glinting eyes. “Do you dare to even touch a strand of hair on my head?”
“Why not?” The man pinched his cheek viciously. “You can’t die just yet, though. Before I safely leave this place, you have to stay alive!”
“Great-uncle, let me give you a piece of kind advice. Stop your unnecessary struggle—admit that you’ve lost!”
Feeling sorry for the man, he gave him a final chance.
Just as he finished with what he wanted to say…
Coming from the south, two glaring headlights approached them steadily from a near distance.
Everyone present was on high alert.
Vermilion Bird followed the lights and saw an Audi A8 speeding closer. What she noticed about this car was the J plate it carried; she knew, there and then, that someone extraordinary had arrived!
There were a few other cars following behind the Audi, which soon halted smoothly at the south entrance.
Everyone looked over.
Under their watchful eyes, a long and lanky figure slowly emerged from the vehicle.
As Mu Yazhe got out of the car, he stood tall and straight. His towering figure cut a stern and overpowering presence all at once.
There was a terrifying aura emanating from him, which reached those present at the scene.
There was none who was not awestruck by his strong presence.
Youyou was lost; he did not get why his father was here.
When his father saw him, the former, too, was stunned. He was totally unprepared to bump into a tricky situation like this.
Why is he here?!
The father and son asked the exact question inwardly at the same time.
“Daddy, why are you here?”
The boy voiced out the question first with a surprised look on his face.
Just after he opened his mouth, Mu Lianjue clutched his throat fiercely and yelled, “Shut up!”
The arrival of Mu Yazhe had put him on his guard.
With his throat held tightly, the boy could not overcome his shock still.
His mind rumbled, trying to piece the puzzle together, until a flash of white light went off in his head.
