The man knew that he had to escape now, or he might lose his life, so without hesitation, he held Xu Jinchen, who was the closest to him, hostage.
Because Xu Jinchen was injured and he was still in shock from when Leng Shaoting made that impact, he was easily caught by the man.
The others were scared, but didn’t dare to move right away, because the man might hurt him.
“Give me the night-luminescent pearl, or I’ll kill him!” The man threatened Leng Shaoting.
“Sure, I can give the night-luminescent pearl to you, but you must let him go,” Leng Shaoting said.
Although he didn’t know whether the man would keep his promise, he couldn’t put Xu Jinchen’s life in danger because of a night-luminescent pearl.
The man held Xu Jinchen while moving towards the exit. “No problem. Give me the night-luminescent pearl, and he’ll go free.”
As long as he could get the night-luminescent pearl back, he was willing to give up. He could take revenge after he had made a full recovery.
“We can count to three. You throw the night-luminescent pearl over, and I’ll let him go,” the man said.
“Great,” Leng Shaoting said.
“One, two, three.”
The man counted down to three, and Leng Shaoting threw the night-luminescent pearl to him as they agreed. The man also let Xu Jinchen go and caught the night-luminescent pearl.
Xu Jinchen rolled aside at once, in case the man held him hostage again.
Right at this moment, Leng Shaoting dashed ahead and pointed his gun at the man, and the next second, a bullet flew at the man’s hand.
The man felt the danger, but wasn’t able to move as fast as usual because of his injuries, and the bullet accurately hit his hand causing him to miss the night-luminescent pearl.
When he wanted to catch it with the other hand, Leng Shaoting shot him again, and he had to avoid the bullet so the night-luminescent pearl fell to the ground.
“You…” The man was furious.
Leng Shaoting was about to reach him, and he had to make a decision right now. It was a hard decision, but the man decided to give up the night-luminescent pearl too and escaped right away.
Leng Shaoting didn’t chase him, because his teammates were still injured now, and he couldn’t leave them behind.
Luckily, the night-luminescent pearl was left here.
Leng Shaoting picked it up. He still felt that the magical power was flowing into his body once he touched it, but there was only a little left.
Although Xu Jinchen and the others were injured, they all had taken a power crystal, so they could go back after taking a rest for a while.
Leng Shaoting was out of power crystals now, but he felt much better with the help of the magical power from the night-luminescent pearl.
“Shaoting, who is that man? He looks very strange, and why was he suddenly pushed away from you earlier?” Chen Meng asked with confusion.
Ai Weishun was also confused about it. Xu Jinchen, however, remained silent, because Gu Ning had told him to keep it a secret.
“I don’t know either,” Leng Shaoting said. “You can’t tell other people until I figure it out. If you encounter anyone like him again in the future, don’t fight with him and tell me first.”
Actually, he needed to ask Gu Ning to figure it out. They were too weak compared with members of the Evil Practice.
“Sure!” They nodded. Since Leng Shaoting told them to keep it secret from other people, they would listen to him.
Xu Jinchen also nodded in case his teammates found that he reacted differently.
“I need to do some research about this night-luminescent pearl. Just tell them that we didn’t find it if anyone asks you about it,” Leng Shaoting said.
He needed to figure out the reason why he could absorb the night-luminescent pearl’s magical power.
“Sure,” they said.
After they had a rest, they left together.
The next morning, Gu Ning went back to City B.
When she arrived at City B, she turned on her phone and saw a missed call from Yu Zi, who she called back at once.
“Hi, boss!” Yu Zi greeted her excitedly.
“Do you have any good news to tell me?” Gu Ning smiled.
“Yes! Didn’t I tell you that I participated in the clothing design competition in Paris? I’m among the top 10 now, and ranked eighth. Although it isn’t very high, it’s not easy for a new competitor to win a position in such an international competition. My design will be shown at the Paris Fashion Week!” Yu Zi said.
Her greatest wish was that more and more people would like her designs and that she could live a better life. Her life completely changed ever since she met Gu Ning.
