“Where did you sprain your ankle?” Huo Mian was suspicious .
“In the basement, of course . How could I come down here if I sprained it up on the ground?” Huo Siqian said with a smile .
“Then why did you enter this room? There’s nothing here . ”
Huo Mian was attentive to details and noticed there was nothing but Huo Siqian in this room .
Why did he come into such a small room? It would be more logical to stay in the outer room .
“I sprained my ankle and couldn’t get out . So I decided to come here and rest . ”
“Is that so?” Huo Mian felt things were not that simple .
“Huo Mian, are you doubting me?”
Huo Mian just watched him from the distance and didn’t walk closer .
Huo Mian found the corner that Huo Siqian was standing in was very dim; not able to see the environment clearly, she wouldn’t act rashly .
“I’m not doubting you . I just feel… something’s not right,” Huo Mian said frankly .
“What’s not right? You’re just being paranoid…” Huo Siqian sat down and smiled, trying to look mild .
“But Huo Siqian never called me Huo Mian,” Huo Mian said calmly .
Huo Siqian froze when he heard her words .
He was surprised that Huo Mian noticed this small detail .
Yes, Huo Mian had noticed how he called her . Although his tone was mild and genial, he had called her Huo Mian; but Huo Siqian had never called her Huo Mian .
In the C City, he had called her Little Sister Mian; after they came to the island, he had called her Mian .
Even when she angered him and lost her temper with him, he had never called her full name as if she was a stranger .
The only reason people called her Huo Mian was that they were not close to her .
Huo Mian began to realize the identity of the man before her .
“Very smart… No wonder that fellow likes you… It seems your legendary high IQ is true…”
As he spoke, Huo Siqian stood up slowly; as he did, there were clattering sounds of chains .
Obviously, he was chained .
“Are you Jack?” Although she knew the answer, Huo Mian still felt nervous because each time Huo Siqian’s other personality appeared, it was a nightmare . If Huo Siqian was a psycho, then Jack was a demon . Ten Huo Siqians combined were not as horrible as one Jack .
“Very good . You still remember me… I’m touched… Huo—Mian . ”
Jack’s tone was weird, especially when he extended the sound of her name .
Cold sweat broke out on her back and her fingers trembled slightly .
She had always thought of herself as someone that could stay calm before calamity, but at this moment, she was plunged into panic, fear, and despair .
“Are you locked?” Huo Mian looked at Jack’s hands and feet .
The chains looked not thick but very sturdy; they looked new and smooth .
There were no other people on the island except for her and Huo Siqian; who had locked him?
“The coward Huo Siqian can do nothing but hurt himself . Will you believe me if I told you he locked me up?”
Huo Mian didn’t speak as she wondered if Jack had spoken the truth . After all, she trusted neither Huo Siqian nor Jack .
