Any misstep would mean tumbling over the edge and plunging to her death. No one could survive a fall from a height of more than a hundred meters.
He dashed over, picked up an iron rod lying randomly on the ground nearby, and hit the attacker with the weapon in his hands with all his might.
The actress heaved a sigh of relief when she realized that it was him, her body collapsing in solace almost at once.
“Hua Jin… it’s you.”
“Yes, it’s me! Don’t be afraid; you’re safe now. Everything’s gonna be fine!”
He comforted her the way he would comfort a frightened child who had just had a terrifying nightmare.
Honestly, he was more afraid than anyone else.
The consequence would have been unbearable! If he had arrived a second later, that madwoman might have gotten her way!
He should have suspected the call to be a foul play from the start.
Nobody would arrange to meet on the rooftop in the middle of the night!
Besides, Qin Zhou was not so stupid to meet outdoors on a cold day like this.
The woman had been foolish to take the bait.
The hacking technology was so advanced these days that it would not be difficult for a malicious folk to hack a private phone and send a message from it.
Her manager had also warned her repeatedly to stay put inside her room and to call him if she needed to look for him.
She did attempt to call him several times on his phone, except that she could not get through. She did not suspect this to be a job of a backer and merely thought that he had some important matters to discuss with her.
Her concern for him led her to fall for this trap.
The life-threatening encounter she had earlier was too much for her. For a long time, her heart continued to thump furiously and was unable to calm down.
Hua Jin held her carefully in his embrace. His gentle countenance and loving consolation managed to soothe her uneasiness after a while.
Her racing heart quieted down with his words, and as she let down her guard, she burst into fretful tears in his arms.
Her terrified sobs caused the actor’s eyes to moisten as well.
In his impression, she was a quiet and understated girl, who was able to face any surmounting problems in life calmly.
What, then, did she experience that made her break down so badly?
She must have been scared stiff to break into such a hysterical wail!
The man could feel her pain and comforted her by patting her back gently. She had just narrowly escaped a harrowing death!
Planting a kiss lightly on her forehead, he tried to alleviate her pain. “Sorry; it’s my fault. I was careless and made you go through terrible things…”
“Please forgive me…”
“Don’t cry anymore. My heart hurts when you cry.”
As he watched her collapsing in a sorrowful heap in his arms, he finally understood what a broken heart was like.
Right now, he could feel his heart aching as if it had been broken apart.
Gradually, the loud sobs turned into soft whimpers. After her body regained some strength, she urged with stifled cries, “Let’s get out of here. Quick!”
“Call the police…” She forced these words through gritted teeth. After all, she did not know if her enemy was still breathing or alive, but she dared not touch her to confirm. If this was considered the crime scene, then the next best thing to do was call the police to handle the rest.
Just as the man tried to carry her up, he accidentally rubbed against the wound on her back, which caused her to frown in pain.
Her injury must have been from those loose gravel on the rough, concrete flooring earlier.
The woman insisted on walking instead of being carried so that the man could only put her down, letting her lean on him as he supported her entire weight.
