“Are you sure you’re not mistaken?” Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel. took a deep breath and asked for the last time.
Xia Tian nodded. “The reason why I was fired by the troops was because of the task at that time… I suspect that my teammates were killed because it was all a conspiracy.”
Perhaps this secret has been hidden for too long, so Xia Tian didn’t hesitate to say this.
Su Qiubai was speechless. He had never seen the person who Xia Tian had mentioned before, but honestly… that person used to be his idol, so the impact Xia Tian’s secret had on him was huge!
Su Qiubai hesitated for a moment. He looked up and planned to confirm the situation once more, but suddenly, the navigation system sounded in his head.
“Warning! Level 1 hazard warning! Level 1 hazard warning! The space-time channel is subject to signal interference and disorder!”
Su Qiubai only reacted a second later. This was the first time he heard the navigation system prompt a warning. But what’s a Level 1 hazard warning?
Just as he thought of this, he heard gunshots. And the window next to him shattered!
The two of them barely had time to crouch down in the car. A stray bullet had even scratched Su Qiubai’s shoulder.
In addition to the chaotic gunshots, Su Qiubai also heard some foreign languages. He wasn’t sure if the killers didn’t know how to speak Mandarin, or if they were just deliberately relaying messages.
“Start the car!”
Xia Tian’s shouts plunged into Su Qiubai’s ear, making him fully understand what he should do at this moment.
Frankly, this was the first time he had encountered such a scene, so his mind went blank as he panicked.
Only when you’re facing a barrage of destruction will you truly understand what courage means.
Therefore, Su Qiubai immediately got up to start the car. At the same time, he opened the navigation system. He couldn’t be bothered about whether there was anything in front of the car; he instantly sped up.
The sounds of iron pieces crashing into each other was simply maddening. Su Qiubai couldn’t see the road clearly, so he didn’t know that it had already been blocked by several cars. So, before the killers could react, the black Audi had directly hit whatever was in its way.
Sparks were seen as it scratched its way through a few cars that night. It just kept gaining speed due to the navigation system. Just like that, the entire Audi had almost deformed as it forcefully created a path between the cars and whizzed away.
When the cold wind blew in through the window slit and the sounds of gunshots were significantly softer, Su Qiubai slowly sat up straight. Beads of cold sweat kept rolling down his forehead. He understood the meaning of a near-death experience after encountering that scenario!
If he had reacted any slower, or if luck had not been on his side, he would already be dead by now!
His shoulders and face, which were scratched by the stray bullets, were still burning in pain. However, he couldn’t care about this now. Just then, he realized that Xia Tian hadn’t spoken since they sped off.
“Xia Tian! How are you?! Speak to me!”
While driving the broken car forward, Su Qiubai pushed Xia Tian, trying to get him up.
But Xia Tian wasn’t moving.
A bad feeling began to surface in Su Qiubai’s heart. He started to panic; his throat felt so dry that it was about to split.
“Xia Tian, don’t die! Think about your daughter! You still have a wife and family! Wake up! Darn it!”
This was the first time that Su Qiubai saw someone dying in front of him, but he couldn’t do anything to help.
He didn’t have any growth points24growth pointsProtagonist earns this when he completes tasks given by the navigation system left, so he couldn’t save Xia Tian. Even if he had growth points, he had no courage to return to the scenario, because he wasn’t sure whether he could still make it out alive.
Suddenly, Xia Tian slowly got up and raised his head.
However, Su Qiubai didn’t have time to feel reassured because he spotted a red patch on Xia Tian’s chest and a deep wound.
“You… How are you?” Su Qiubai was speechless, and even more nervous.
“Mr. Su… please take care of my family… Thank you!” Xia Tian used all his remaining strength to lean against the back seat and look at Su Qiubai.
“I will! Don’t die! Don’t worry, we’ll go to the hospital now!” With both hands shakily clutching the steering wheel, Su Qiubai shouted loudly and anxiously at Xia Tian.
The murderers behind him might catch up soon, and the space-time channel couldn’t be opened because of bad signal.
When Su Qiubai took a glance at Xia Tian, he saw Xia Tian’s eyes. There were too many inexplicable things in those eyes: love, reminisce, sadness, as well as… glory and hope!
And Xia Tian’s last words were simply unforgettable, and even impactful!
His last words represented the utmost faith of an ordinary person and the supreme glory of a soldier.
“Mr. Su… You must… defend China!”
Just like that, Xia Tian died. The moment Xia Tian closed his eyes, Su Qiubai cried!
Sweat and tears rolled down his face. He screamed out loud.
He had never experienced such a scene, so he felt even more despondent!
He had no more growth points; he couldn’t change history even if he wanted to. He could only watch Xia Tian die.
It was at this time that he heard gunshots once again. There was even a row of bright lights before him.
In order to avoid the bullets, Su Qiubai forcefully headed in another direction. Even Xia Tian’s body was thrown outwards by the force, and the car was completely stuck in a corner.
It seemed that the killers weren’t planning on letting him go!
Taking a deep breath, Su Qiubai was as calm as ever. He grabbed onto the steering wheel with both hands and stabilized the car.
Change gear, accelerate, go!
Since you guys want to die… Let’s play!
In a flash, the broken Audi dashed out…
However, no one knew what had happened. The killers were originally confident that they had completed their task, but a mysterious thing happened before their eyes.
The Audi had disappeared!
They all exited their cars. It was noticeably clear that they were all foreigners. They searched the surrounding trees and cliffs thoroughly, but couldn’t find the Audi at all.
Although they felt weird, it was true that the car had disappeared into thin air.
Everyone initially thought that they had made no mistakes, but Su Qiubai actually managed to escape in the end. The fact that they didn’t remember the car’s license plate number made the situation even more difficult.
However, the first thing they did was report the news to the underground base.
After listening to the reports, the man on the other side gently said, “After you’ve handled this matter, find out the identity of the escapee as soon as possible.”
Then, the call was hung up.
Almost half an hour after the incident happened, Su Qiubai appeared at the villa.
At the last minute, the system had eliminated the signal interference and the space-time channel opened just in time for him to escape. He had disposed of the Audi so that no one would ever find it.
The only thing he was worried now was the possibility that those killers remembered the Audi’s license plate number, and then finding out that it belonged to Zhou Zile2Zhou Zileonly here for Gu Chengya29Gu ChengyaAlso written as Cheng Ya or Miss Gu. The mistress of the Gu family; Grandpa Gu's favourite granddaughter.’s party.
If Su Qiubai knew that the killers didn’t remember the number, he would definitely be a lot more relaxed.
Although he still didn’t know those killers’ identity, if what Xia Tian said was true, then Su Qiubai had to clean up any traces he had left behind. Otherwise, it would definitely be troublesome if he found out that it was Su Qiubai who had wanted to save Xia Tian on Jiangbei Mountain!
Su Xiaoxiao31Su XiaoxiaoSu Qiubai's sister; also written as Xiao Xiao in this novel. was already sleeping, so Su Qiubai didn’t wake her up. Cao Toufei and the Street Racers Gang were also most probably not in the villa. Su Qiubai got some gauze and planned to treat his wound. However, just at this moment, the fat boy had dropped off the ancestors at the door and drove away.
At first, the ancestors were smiling and laughing when they entered the villa. However, they immediately quieted down after seeing Su Qiubai covered in injuries.
“Which rascal hurt you?! I’ll kill all nine generations of his family!” Tie Muzhen18Tie MuzhenEmperor Genghis, Genghis Khan19Genghis KhanEmperor Genghis, Tie Muzhen shouted. Although the other emperors next to him were silent, their eyes were looking really dangerous. Bai Qi looked even more murderous!
