Chapter 425: Don't Leave My Sight
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
It was not a symbolic loneliness but a spiritual barrenness. Xinghe thought she was fated to face life alone…
Who would have thought Mubai would promise to be her rock? She knew he was capable of doing that… but she wondered, how long he would persevere.
"What's on your mind?" Mubai had already dragged Xinghe out of the mansion. The cold wind hit her face, freshening her mind.
She didn't answer but asked, "We're leaving just like that? We're not telling them first?"
Mubai shook his head. "I will explain on the phone. Since we've decided then it's better to act fast."
"Okay." Xinghe nodded, he was right, they were on a race against time. The car drove them to a private airport where a private plane already sat waiting. Mubai escorted Xinghe up into the plane.
Before entering, Xinghe turned back to look at the darkness behind her and a determined look crossed her eyes.
When I see this place next, it will be the end of Feng Saohuang! I will make him regret ever coming after me and everything that I love!
Just like that, Mubai took Xinghe out of the country. This created quite a problem for the Xi family who'd paid her bail. However, they didn't have the time to care about that anymore. The Xi family was also in a troublesome situation, like Xinghe, they had no other choice but to find out Saohuang's proof of criminality as soon as possible. In other words, this was the last resort for both the Xi family and Xinghe.
Even though this wouldn't end the Xi family but it would create a chain reaction that would cause great losses for the family. Regardless, this was a risk they had to take to overcome this particular crisis.
Little did Xinghe know that what awaited her was a cruel and dark reality.
The country Mubai was taking Xinghe to was Country Y. They needed to change two planes and spent two days and two nights in the air before landing at Country Y.
On the plane, Mubai took out a handgun and taught Xinghe the basics.
"Country Y is in a critical condition at the moment, there will be riots. There are even rumors of a large-scale war breaking out soon. I really didn't want to bring you along because it is simply too dangerous," Mubai told her.
Xinghe nodded. "I know, but there is nowhere that is one hundred percent safe, I'd rather chance it with you."
Mubai smirked. "Don't worry, just stick around me and I will keep you safe. After we land at Country Y, please follow me closely and don't wander out of my sight."
Xinghe nodded to show understanding. She knew the gravity of the situation and knew how to act accordingly. Her sole goal of going to Country Y was to use her computer skills to unearth Saohuang's proof of criminality. Everything else she would leave to Mubai.
Mubai continued to bring her up to date on his investigation.
"I've found out more information about this illegal organization but their base's location is still unclear. According to my collected information, their group is incredibly large, so much so that we can't take them down unaided, which is why I've formed a cooperative relationship with an important person in Country Y. The moment we find out the location of their base, you can hack into their internal system." 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
