Qin Ke Xuan picked up the Ke Ke at her side and placed it outside the window, and then she too crawled out, her sharp eyes mindful of any of the possible ambush locations. After ensuring the area’s safe, she waved for Yin Xu Dong to climb up.
Yin Xu Dong popped out from inside, panting all the while, and even got his butt stuck halfway through, unable to come out, and had to actually be dragged out by Qin Ke Xuan.
At that time, a bunch of people donned in black ran this way, making a ruckus: “They’ve climbed out through the window! Heck it, finish them!”
Qin Ke Xuan grabbed the little dog on the ground and threw it into Yin Xu Dong’s arms, then hauled him along by his hand, running in the opposite direction the bunch of people in black went.
If there wasn’t a Yin Xu Dong around, she’d had used her Qing Gong and disappeared long ago. Yin Xu Dong’s speed obviously cannot compare up to the bunch of people who were involved in the underworld, and he just had to bring along another troublesome dog. Slowly, the distance between them and their chasers drew close. She knew that if she were to abandon Yin Xu Dong, he would definitely be captured and die.
After turning the corner, Qin Ke Xuan speedily sent a push at Yin Xu Dong behind the several rubbish bins. “You hide here and don’t come out!” Having said that, she rounded the corner, rushed into the bunch of people in black and starting fighting the burly bunch of men armed with long knives, completely unarmed.
The fact that these people had no guns on them had Qin Ke Xuan largely felt assured. It looked like these people were the lowest rung of hired thugs, no wonder they didn’t guard the air vent window. Anyone with a slight bit of intellect would know to block off all possible escape routes.
There were quite a number of people in black. They speedily cut off the two ends of the alley and trapped her in the middle. The bunch of burly men didn’t give two shits about the fact that they were only facing a little girl and brandished their knives to hack at Qin Ke Xuan mercilessly. ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 27 is hosted at ZHANLANTRANSLATIONS.WORDPRESS.COM♢
Qin Ke Xuan pulled over another person’s arm whose hand had been grasping a knife and used it to block the knife that had been hacking in her direction. Then with a backward flip of her hand, one hand against the back of the person she’d had grabbed just now, she lifted herself up, using her arm as the pivot and kicked both her legs at the people in black that had surrounded her in all directions. A turn of her wrist, Qin Ke Xuan dropped back down on the ground, and at the same time, another person in black sent a horizontal sweep of his large knife at her at an incredibly fast speed.
Just as Qin Ke Xuan wanted to bend to evade the knife, she caught a glimpse of a shadow that rushed out of the dustbin area towards her, as though trying to block himself in front of her. Before she had any time to think about cursing at him in rage, she stretched her hand to pull at the back of the collar, and they fell backwards. As she fell, she raised her leg, kicking the knife in the black-clothed person’s hand away.
All these actions were accomplished in a very short time. It was such a dangerous situation they were under. If it hadn’t been her pulling Yin Xu Dong that idiot away, he would have been long chopped into two pieces. Qin Ke Xuan pulled the Yin Xu Dong who’d collapsed on her aside in fury. “Didn’t I say not to come out?! Are you seeking death!”
Before Yin Xu Dong could even retort, Qin Ke Xuan hugged him and the two of them rolled on the ground. At the same time, four to five knives slammed down at the place where they had been lying just moments ago. They rolled over to the foot of a wall. Qin Ke Xuan leapt up, taking the opportunity to pick up a fallen knife with her foot and grasped it in her hand. A wave of her hand, she blocked the edge of a knife that had thereupon waved in her direction. Her hand, as though a knife, landed on that person’s hand, snatching over his sword and sent the black-clothed person flying with a kick. She then threw the knife to the Yin Xu Dong behind her, “Take it if you don’t want to die.”
Yin Xu Dong stood up, taking the knife, trembling, and said with difficulty: “But, but… you, you need to pay with one’s life… I, I’ve never… people before.”
“There’s a first to everything. You won’t feel much after you’ve done it a lot.” Qin Ke Xuan blocked the offensive attacks expressionlessly while replying him. Z L T
“…” Yin Xu Dong felt like crying a river of tears, was it even possible to not feel much while doing these kinds of things?
Bang bang bang. Amidst the ruckus from the fighting, gunshot sounds were heard. The black-clothed people stopped moving.
They swarmed in, shouting: “Read this on ZLT!”
Upon hearing this, Yin Xu Dong’s suspended heart finally settled. He reached to wipe aside the cold sweat that had beaded on his forehead. The police’s finally here, if they reached any later, he would have really needed to kill someone!
“Drop your knife! Raise your hands, all of you!” The police closed it, their guns pointed people they have surrounded.
Yin Xu Dong was the first to throw his knife down and raise both his hands. Upon seeing Qin Ke Xuan still holding on to her knife, he reached for her and threw it on the ground, then pulled her hand and raised it high in the air.
Qin Ke Xuan raised her head to look at him. He wiggled his facial muscles at her, leaning in pointed his lips at in the direction the police were closing in, saying softly: “We need to listen to what the police shu shu* say.”
* 叔叔 ＝ shu shu; uncle
“Are you the one that called them over?” Qin Ke Xuan asked in an extremely chilly tone.
“Geh, no, that so wasn’t me! Just think about it, there are so many people fighting, and are lugging such a big knives, the residents living in the area definitely must have seen it and called the police!” Yin Xu Dong raised his head and propped his chest, lying very guiltless-ly.
Qin Ke Xuan turned, planning to leave, but Yin Xu Dong caught one of her arms and gripped it tightly, not letting go. He implored in a low voice: “Don’t leave me here alone! You can rest assured, we have both human testimony and material evidence of our innocence!” He couldn’t watch Qin Ke Xuan go astray further just because of one misstep. He knew his own strength was meagre, so if he wanted to pull Qin Ke Xuan back from her involvement with the underworld matters, he needed to borrow a stronger force. This was a pretty good chance. If he left Xuan Xuan escape again, who knew when he would be able to find her again!
Qin Ke Xuan looked at the people clothed in black who were glaring at the two of them and at the policemen who had started apprehending people. She frowned slightly but didn’t shake off Yin Xu Dong’s grip in the end. The two of them were pushed into the police car. The police had to mobilise five to six police cars before they were able to escort everyone who had participated in this armed confrontation back to the police station.
As there were quite a number of people, they were divided into two batches had to wait in a prison cell for the police to interrogate them. This was Yin Xu Dong’s first time being sent to the police station. Coupled with him feeling touched by Qin Ke Xuan who didn’t abandon him was unease due to the environment they were in. He sat close to Qin Ke Xuan on the ground. Despite his palpitating heart that was proof of his fear, he still glared back at the bunch of burly guys who were eyeing Qin Ke Xuan fiercely, widened his eyes as large as they went, and stuck his lip out in a whacha’-lookin’-at manner. He slowly migrated his butt sideways, gradually blocking Qin Ke Xuan behind him.
“You’re blocking me.” Qin Ke Xuan said calmly. What was that guy doing!
Yin Xu Dong replied softly: “Shush, quiet.” ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 27 is hosted at ZHANLANTRANSLATIONS.WORDPRESS.COM♢
Qin Ke Xuan rolled her eyes helplessly. Did he just forget who it was that almost got chopped into two, and who it was that saved him? She couldn’t be bothered to concern herself with him, and instead sat up, her legs in a cross-legged position.
After a while, a policeman opened the metal door, and shouted at Qin Ke Xuan: “Qin Ke Xuan, come out.”
Qin Ke Xuan stood up, bent past the metal door and out the prison. Suddenly, her someone grasped her leg. She turned back. Yin Xu Dong was looking at her, eyes brimming with tears. She frowned: “What now?”
“Xuan Xuan, you’re just going to abandon me like this?” Z L T
“Oi, what’s wrong with you? Let go, don’t hinder us handling our case.” The police who opened the door scolded loudly.
Qin Ke Xuan took note of his gaze that kept slipping backwards at the bunch of black-clothed people, and said: “Come out with me.” Yin Xu Dong upon hearing that clambered out the low metal door.
The policeman glared at the two of them, hands stretching ready to push Yin Xu Dong back into the cell. “Go back in!”
“You sure it’s appropriate to shut a girl in the same cell as a bunch of so many guys?” Qin Ke Xuan tugged Yin Xu Dong’s wig and said to the policeman. “Either we go out together, or we stay inside together. Your call.” Her words had Yin Xu Dong extremely moved, heck it, he’s a sis-con! It didn’t matter!
“Aye, Xiao Yang what are you dilly-dallying for? Does it take half a day to bring a person out?!” A slightly older policeman swore, walking in from outside. He paused when he saw confrontational situation between the two sides. “What’s the problem?”
Xiao Yang immediately explained to him what happened briefly. He frowned and waved for Xiao Yang to bring them. “Bring them both, just stay outside to guard the other girl later. That person’s already quite impatient, you better hurry.”
Xiao Yang immediately brought the two of them out. He had Yin Xu Dong stand beside a desk and wait for him to return, then brought Qin Ke Xuan into one of the interrogation rooms then left, returning to the desk, and started interrogating Yin Xu Dong.
“What? You’re a freaking guy? A ladyboy* from Thailand?” Xiao Yang sized Yin Xu Dong up and down. His gaze on him had Yin Xu Dong feeling very uneasy, and so he pulled his wig off with a swoosh.
* 人妖 = ren yao; guy pretending to be a girl
“I’m a guy yeah!”
And he said no to aggregator sites!
“Tsk tsk, kids these days sure are… it’s a drag-fetish you have isn’t it? I’ve heard of it, it’s a psychological illness, aye. It’s okay, it’s okay, you’re not normal if you don’t have some psychological illness these days, it’s just that yours is a little more serious than others.”
After Xiao Yang recorded down the other relevant questions and notified Yin Xu Dong and Qin Ke Xuan’s families to come down to pick up their kids, he started chatting with Yin Xu Dong out of boredom.
“Lad, that girl’s your girl?” ♢ You are reading I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 27 on ZHANLANTRANSLATIONS on WORDPRESS ♢
Yin Xu Dong flushed, arguing: “What’re you saying? That’s my mei*, though not biological.”
* 妹 = mei; younger sister Z L T
“Your sister’s pretty damn incredible! To actually pique the military’s interest! Tsk tsk, I don’t even dream about such incredible dreams.”
“What do you mean? How did she pique the military’s interest?”
“Hehe, drop your act, don’t the two of you hang together, how can you not know? The military’s getting involved. You see that, the person inside the interrogation room is a company commander ranked officer. And, we’ve got word from them to be mindful of Qin Ke Xuan this person and notify them if we catch her. I heard from our immediate superior she’s selected by the military. She might even join the Special Forces. That’s the Special Forces we talking about! Tsk tsk, not to mention, she’s a girl, and still a high school-er at that. That’s girl’s way too incredible.”
“…” Yin Xu Dong wasn’t very sure about how all these stuff worked, but as a policeman, you sure you can leak all these information out to outsiders as you wished? And to a person you’re interrogating at that?
Special Forces? He’d seen what Qin Ke Xuan could do, and so he knew she was well qualified for it. He had still been racking his brains trying to find a way to have her return from her path towards destruction perhaps this was a good opportunity. Even though joining the Special Forces was dangerous, but this was at least much better than her getting involved in the underworld! Even the heaven was helping him!
Meanwhile at Qin Ke Xuan’s side, there were three officers that sat across her.
The officer sitting in the middle taped his finger on the table-top unconsciously, his gazing burning as he watched Qin Ke Xuan. He started: “Qin Ke Xuan, during the month of military training, you sneaked into the weaponry storeroom, are you aware of the repercussions?”
Qin Ke Xuan’s head was lowered. She didn’t look at them nor reply them. Z L T
