Ning Qingxue took a small breath of relief. She wasn’t afraid of death, but she didn’t want to die here for no reason.
Everyone started to calm down as the plane stabilized. Just as the thugs had promised, they didn’t want their lives.
At this time, a man walked out with a HKMP5 assault rifle in his hands. He waved to the two men pointing guns at the passengers and walked along the aisle. Everytime he saw a young and beautiful woman, he nodded and appeared to be delighted.
Ning Qingxue’s heart sunk. Just when she wanted to find something to cover her face with, that man stood in front of her.
For a long time she didn’t hear him say anything. Ning Qingxue looked up to see this man staring dazily at her.
He had even started to drool.
"Yosh, Chinese woman, you are so beautiful… You, come out…" This man pointed the gun at Ning Qingxue.
Ning Qingxue shook; she knew she was done for. This person wasn’t going to let her go. She desperately tried to think of a way to get away from this person, but couldn’t think of any.
Then, the other two started muttering in Japanese. So they were all from Japan.
Ning Qingxue suddenly thought of the middle aged woman beside her and grabbed her hand and said, "Didn’t you say you were going to take me to America? If I’m taken away by these people, how are you going to bring me to the US? If you don’t protect me, young master Yuan will be very angry."
Ning Qingxue was prepared to die, but if she did, she was going to bring Yuan Qibing’s person down with her.
As expected, the middle aged woman’s face went pale, and she quickly said, "This has nothing to do with me, I don’t know you, let me go!"
But no matter what she said, that man only got more impatient, so he grabbed the woman and tossed her to the side, starting to spray her with bullets.
She was soon soaked in blood.
"Women are the most precious thing to us. Now that I’ve already killed her, if you still waste my time then don’t blame me for what’s coming next, pretty Chinese woman," he pointed the gun at Ning Qingxue and threatened. That was actually Chinese; though the pronunciation was a bit off.
Ning Qingxue originally planned to get the gun from that woman, but looking at her body soaked in blood, she felt disgusted. She didn’t know where the woman had hidden the gun. Now that the Japanese kept pointing the gun at her, she could only stand up and walk to the end of the plane.
There were also two hijackers at the end of the plane. It could be seen that this was a big crew. But Ning Qingxue didn’t care, she was thinking about how not to be raped.
The two men saw this guy and bowed.
He kicked open a door and aimed the gun at Ning Qingxue, signalling her to enter. Seeing Ning Qingxue walk in, he closed the door and laughed.
"Chinese woman, take off your clothes. Let me admire your body first. You are the prettiest Asian I have ever seen. Today, you will be my woman," The man went to a seat and sat down.
Ning Qingxue’s eyes brightened up, she saw a parachute in the room and there was an emergency door. If she could get this parachute and jump out from there… Ning Qingxue’s heart started beating rapidly. She really didn’t want to die like that; there were too many things she still had to do.
"Hurry up, don’t make me do it. If I do it, you won’t be so comfortable. I like my women tamed," The man saw Ning Qingxue start to look around and was getting restless.
Ning Qingxue suddenly smiled sweetly and sat down. Upon seeing this smile, the man who was getting impatient was dumbfounded. Such a beauty! He felt his heart beating fast. Just imagining how this woman was about to be his, he couldn’t hold the excitement in his heart.
Dongben Yinji had seen too many beauties and taken countless of them, but this was the first time he saw someone like Ning Qingxue who would make him feel as though he were in heaven just by gazing at her. And this goddess in front of his eyes was about to be his. This almost made him doubt reality.
But soon he refocused. He knew that on the plane he might be the boss, once they got off and got into the base, this woman wouldn’t be his.
"I'd like to know why you hijack a plane yet don’t want money. Why do you need such a big plane?" Ning Qingxue asked. Her hand was grabbing onto a fireball charm, the question was just to distract him.
She didn’t know if the fireball charm Tang Beiwei gave her would be of any use. If it wasn’t, she would be no match for this guy. So, she didn’t dare use the fireball straight away. She had to find something to kill herself with before the event of the fireball charm turning out to be useless. Even if she had to die, she couldn’t be assaulted by an animal.
"You ask too many questions. But, my beauty, since you're about to enter the base, you are one of us. It’s fine if I tell you. You can call yourself lucky; this plane has Professor Eiastein in it. He is the person we’re looking for. Of course, everyone else on the plane is a bonus and will be serving our great country. You should be honoured that you’re about to be a part of our great empire," Dongben Yinji said with pride.
"Professor Eiastein? The two times Nobel prize winner for chemistry?" Ning Qingxue was really shocked. She didn’t expect the professor to be in Hong Kong and take the same plane as her to San Francisco. What did these people want a chemistry professor for?
Ning Qingxue suddenly figured, 'Did these people want to start World War 3?' She suddenly thought of one more thing and said, "Three years ago, a nuclear physicist called Wearbro disappeared on a passenger jet. Five years ago, the electron specialist Pillie. They…"
Dongben Yinji laughed, "Your imagination sure is good. But yes, you’re right. They are all serving our great empire at our base."
Ning Qingxue was shocked. These disappearances were all related to them, yet for some reason, it had remained unknown who did it.
Ning Qingxue shook. She remembered what she was about to do and suppressed the thoughts in her mind. Ning Qingxue noticed a small dagger not far away; she rejoiced and ran towards it.
Dongben Yinji saw this and sneered. He sent a palm towards Ning Qingxue.
Thud -Ning Qingxue grabbed the dagger as Dongben Yinji was blocked by a white barrier which shocked him away, sending him crashing into the metal wall.
Dongben Yinji looked at his palm in astonishment. It was red as though he'd just slapped a very hard surface. He looked at the woman, and there seemed to be nothing in front of her.
Grabbing the dagger, Ning Qingxue rejoiced. This defensive necklace was useful indeed. She could rest easy now; even if her fireball charm turned out to be useless, she could commit suicide with the dagger.
At this moment, Ning Qingxue was full of gratitude towards Ye Mo. If it wasn’t for Ye Mo, that palm would’ve injured her, and there would be no way for her to get the dagger.
Dongben Yinji seemed to notice something was up and grabbed the gun beside him.
But before he could raise it, Ning Qingxue threw out a fireball charm saying 'Lin'.
Rumble -a ball of fire flashed, deforming Dongben Yinji into a mess of flames. The fire burned rapidly, and it took just a few moments for Dongben Yinji to be turned into charcoal before he even had time to cry.
Ning Qingxue looked at this scene in shock and couldn’t make sense of it. She was still wondering if the fireball charm would be useful or not, when instantaneously, it turned a living person into charcoal.
There was not a single drop of blood left. An extreme sense of disgust surged up and Ning Qingxue started vomiting. Her brain was in chaos, still not comprehending fully what had just happened.
After a long while, Ning Qingxue calmed down and eventually wrapped her head around things. Everything that just happened was real. She quickly walked up and grabbed the gun.
