Thinking of this, Mu Yichen did not dare to bring the little dumpling to the master bedroom.
Instead, he simply carried her back to the children’s room and coaxed her for a long time before she fell asleep.
However, even though the little dumpling was asleep, she was still uneasy, tossing and turning around as she called out, “Big Sister…”
Her voice was very pitiful.
Seeing this, Mu Yichen frowned again.
‘The little dumpling’s intuition has always been very accurate.
‘Could there really be a problem?
‘But… How could this be possible?’
On the mountain path elsewhere…
A silver sports car was driving at high speed.
Luo Chenxi leaned against the back of the chair with a pale face. She looked at the man in the driver’s seat and said weakly, “Chief Sheng, thank you so much for today. If you hadn’t appeared just in time, I would’ve probably…”
“You’d better stop talking. You have a bullet in your leg. You need to get it out immediately. Otherwise, your leg will be crippled. I can’t believe you still have the strength to talk!” Sheng Yu yelled at her.
He never thought that he would meet someone on the way to his classmate’s wedding in a neighboring city!
Moreover, the person who stopped the car was Luo Chenxi, who had applied for half a month’s annual leave as soon as she started her job!
Then, Luo Chenxi gritted her teeth and endured the pain. “I… I don’t have the strength anymore, but I still have to thank you…”
‘Sheng Yu really is my savior!
‘At first, I thought that I wouldn’t be able to run away anymore and that the car stopping just now was merely a last-minute attempt to survive. So, I didn’t expect it to be of much use.
‘In fact, if Chief Sheng had stopped the car a little later, I would’ve died for sure. In fact, even if he had stopped in time and it wasn’t him, the car owner most likely wouldn’t have saved me.
‘After all, I was being chased!
‘No ordinary person would want to get into trouble like this.
‘So, I’m really lucky to have met Chief Sheng, I’m saved now…’
Just as she heaved a sigh of relief, Sheng Yu suddenly stepped on the accelerator. The car shot out like an arrow leaving the bow.
Hence, Luo Chenxi almost hit the back of the chair in front of her. “Chief Sheng, what’s going on?”
“That person is catching up again,” Sheng Yu said in a low voice.
Luo Chenxi frowned. “That can’t be… Haven’t we already lost him? Unless…”
She suddenly remembered something and took out her phone from her backpack.
‘The most likely thing to be monitored would be my cell phone.’
At that thought, Luo Chenxi hesitated for a moment, gritted her teeth, opened the car window, and threw her phone down the mountain path!
The phone rolled down the pile of weeds and was soon out of sight.
In fact, her guess was right.
After throwing the phone away, Sheng Yu sped up for a while and shook off Reese, who was chasing after them relentlessly.
Then, they did not see his car again until they entered T City.
‘We should be safe this time…’
At that thought, Luo Chenxi heaved a sigh of relief, her vision went black, and she fainted.
Luo Chenxi was woken up by the pain from the wound on her right leg sometime later.
When she opened her eyes, she saw that she was lying in an unfamiliar yet luxurious room with no one around her.
She blinked her eyes blankly, and immediately, memories flooded into her mind.
Then, she suddenly remembered what had happened the entire day yesterday, all the way from saying goodbye to everyone in the Mu family in the morning, to getting into the car “to the airport”, to being attacked in the middle of the night and running for her life…
‘I seem to recall that it was Sheng Yu who saved me…’
At that moment, the door was pushed open, and Sheng Yu walked in from outside.
Seeing that she was awake, his face was filled with joy as he strode over.
