Qi Yanxi only replied with a “=.”
It was a shorthand they used in online games, telling her to wait for him.
An Xiaxia switched on the instant location on her phone and kept sending Qi Yanxi her position.
The driver seemed to sense something and said coldly, “Miss, get some rest. It’ll be some time before we get there.”
An Xiaxia was all the more frightened.
She checked the time and realized that they should have arrived at Yu City a long time ago.
The Song family home wasn’t far from the Sheng family’s and they had never been headed in that direction in the first place!
An Xiaxia felt dizzy. She then found an excuse. “I’m going to be sick.”
The driver darted her a hesitant look before rolling down the window.
An Xiaxia pretended to throw up as she took in voracious breaths of fresh air. Her head was spinning.
What should she do now?
She had no idea how long it would take Qi Yanxi to get here. An Yibei and Sheng Yize were far away in Ye City. She could only count on herself now!
Wait, there was Mr. Song!
An Xiaxia thought about asking for Mr. Song’s help, then realized sadly that she had never saved Mr. Song’s number!
Was she going to die here today?
” Ahem … I’m really sick. Could you pull over, please?” An Xiaxia bit her lip hard and used the taste of blood to keep herself awake. She pretended to grumble in pain.
The driver said with a stern face, “Miss, I’m sorry.”
He rolled the window back up and wouldn’t say another word no matter what An Xiaxia said.
An Xiaxia huddled in a corner and felt like crying.
The driver seemed to pity her and the look on his face was indecipherable as he said, “Miss, please don’t blame me. I don’t want to do this, either. It’s just that you’ve messed with the wrong people.”
An Xiaxia fell asleep again under the effect of the incense.
When she woke up again, she was alone in the car, but it was still moving.
Head swooning, An Xiaxia tried her best to step on the brake in front.
Nothing happened. It must have been tampered with.
The car key had been removed and all the doors were locked. No matter how hard she banged on them, they wouldn’t budge.
The car kept moving forward, until An Xiaxia saw the cliff ahead…
Her phone rang. It was Sheng Yize.
An Xiaxia burst into tears as soon as she picked it up. “Sheng Yize…”
“Are you crying?” Sheng Yize sensed something was off right away. “Xiaxia, calm down. Tell me what happened.”
“Where are you…” An Xiaxia asked, still crying.
“Ye City. What about you? Are you at the Song family home yet?”
An Xiaxia cried even harder. Nothing Sheng Yize did now could save her.
“Sheng Yize… I – I’m going to die… Someone tricked me… The driver locked me inside a car and the car just keeps moving. Th- there’s a cliff ahead…”
Sheng Yize gripped his phone tightly and struggled to keep his voice calm. “Don’t panic! Xiaxia, look for something hard, like an ashtray or a wrench. Smash the window open and jump out of the car!”
An Xiaxia said “alright” between her broken sobs and he added, “I’m coming for you! Wait for me!”
Fortunately, there was indeed an ashtray in the car. An Xiaxia hit the window with it while Sheng Yize kept encouraging and comforting her on the other end.
“The cars always explode in the movies… Will I end up like Kang Jian with nothing to be retrieved at all… sob …” An Xiaxia cried as she smashed the ashtray on the window. “Sheng Yize, I’m so scared… Will you remember me if I die…”
Sheng Yize’s breathing turned shallow and he stressed, “You mean the world to me! You must live, An Xiaxia! I’ll protect you from now on!”
