All of a sudden, a car horn blared from the back. Looking past her shoulder, she saw a black sedan following closely behind her. She suddenly had an ominous premonition and quickened her steps.
The headlights flashed and illuminated the road ahead of her.
Yan Bingqing stiffened as her shadow elongated. She turned her head in panic, but the headlights were so bright that she could not see who it was at all.
The sedan gradually approached her. She nervously sucked in a mouthful of air, turned around, and then scurried forward.
The speed of the sedan increased at once. As the engine roared, the car brushed past her and gave her waist a glancing blow. A pang of pain surged. Caught off guard, she fell to the ground and scraped the skin on her wrist.
Along with the screeching of the brakes, the sedan swerved abruptly.
Her body curled up in a disheveled manner. Panting heavily, she turned to look at the sedan parked at the roadside. Two black-clothed men, with murderous aura, alighted from it and dangerously closed in on her.
"Yo-You… Who are you people?" She warily watched them.
Her stomach felt a faint gnawing yet peculiar pain, while cold sweat seeped out from her forehead. Bearing the acute pain in her stomach, she struggled to her feet and stumbled forward. All along, she was striving to enter Mo Yan's number into her phone with trembling hands.
However, before the call could be placed, a cold air assaulted her from the back. Her hair got harshly pulled, and her phone was snatched and smashed to the ground.
One of the men pushed her to the ground, sat down on her, and slapped her on the cheek.
Meanwhile, the other man mercilessly dislocated her arm. She moaned in pain as her mind buzzed and blanked out.
"N-No… D-Don't… W-What do you all want from me?!" She struggled to get up, but the man pressed his knee against her body. He then used both his hands to grip her throat tighter and tighter.
Her face grimaced into a purplish hue as she painfully choked on her saliva.
Gradually, she only felt her ears ringing as her mind blanked out. She was about to suffocate when a cold voice sounded. "Release her."
The two men instantly released her.
She lifted her head in panic and saw a slender, little boy from a distance.
In the glare of the headlights, for a moment, she was unable to see the little boy's features clearly, but she could faintly see a delicate and exquisite silhouette and a pair of glistening, frosty eyes.
"Are you Yan Bingqing?"
Yun Tianyou slowly raised his head and gracefully walked toward her.
His gait was exceptionally graceful as he strolled to her side. Only then did she clearly see his handsome yet delicate appearance.
The boy bowed his head to fix his cold gaze on her helpless face. The contempt and disdain in his eyes were bitingly cold.
"You… Who are you?"
Her pale lips quivered helplessly.
Even though, at this moment, the one standing before her was merely a seemingly feeble child, when she met his cold yet chilling eyes, her heart could not stop from trembling in fear!
This boy had a mature temperament that did not match his age and constantly exuded a chilly aura.
To be accurate, it was more of a murderous aura…
