t was also likely to accidentally injure the person using it.


Thus, as Xie Lin fought, he also warned the person with whom he was exchanging blows, “Be careful.”


That person clearly didn’t want to talk to him.


The body of the umbrella swung a crisp arc through the air.
Before it’s afterimage had disappeared, it swung directly at his exposed weak point—


Xie Lin didn’t dodge it.


Chi Qing’s goal wasn’t that he actually wanted to stab him, he just wanted to use it to shorten the distance between the two of them.


But Xie Lin received the blow, instead letting him get the upper hand at the key moment.
He tenaciously restrained that umbrella, “I told you to be careful, put down the umbrella.”




Chi Qing was actually not an expert in close-combat fighting, due to his mysophobia.


Xie Lin also quickly remembered this special characteristic of his, and used the opportunity to press the man onto the ground.


This was his second time touching that pair of black-gloved hands.
Because of the rain, both of their bodies were soaked beyond recognition.
The excessively long bangs over Chi Qing’s forehead were already drenched by the rain, that pair of inky black eyes were much deeper than the surrounding night.


Xie Lin pressed him beneath his body, one hand restraining him, and the other reaching up to his own neck to untie the loose tie around his neck, tearing it off in one motion.


Chi Qing was vaguely aware that something wasn’t right, “What’re you doing.”


Xie Lin pulled off his tie and went to bind Chi Qing’s hands, “I’m afraid you won’t behave.”


That obviously expensive necktie was used as a piece of rope.
The silvery gray necktie wrapped around Chi Qing’s wrists many, many times.
Xie Lin hadn’t realized Chi Qing’s wrists were this thin; even after wrapping many times around, a good amount of length was left over.


Then, Chi Qing watched with wide eyes as the nutcase took the remaining half and wrapped it around his own wrist, binding their two hands together, then finally tying a tight, secure knot, “……”


This was determination to not let him run.


“Get up,” Xie Lin said.


Xie Lin pressed him in through the door on the same side of the car, then started the engine, and before starting to go, used the windshield wipers to brush away the rainwater that had collected on the windshield.


Chi Qing deeply thought he really is sick, he spends this much energy just getting in the car, “Where’re we going?”


Xie Lin asked back, “Are you dumb, where else would we be going?”


Chi Qing, “……”


Every person who sadistically kills animals has a certain latent criminal potential.


Chi Qing stared at those windshield wipers.
Through the windshield, he tried to search for where Xie Lin might be taking him.




If they drove five kilometers straight ahead, they would reach the outskirts of the city.


Within three kilometers there was a mountain.
It would be easy to make his move in one of those two places, and easy to hide a body too.


Or maybe this nutcase would bring him to his own home.
The home is the place a person is most familiar with, and also the place that makes them feel the most safe.
Many murderers would choose to commit their first crime within the area where they felt most at ease.


The car drove slowly along.


Chi Qing lowered his eyes, starting to silently calculate the route in his head.


If they were driving to the outskirts, how many traffic lights were along the way? How many service stations?


The roads were easily congested on rainy days.
If he took advantage of the time stuck in traffic or at a traffic light, it wouldn’t be impossible for him to escape.


Xie Lin was completely unaware of what Chi Qing was thinking.
If he knew, he’d probably want to bash open his head and take a look at what was going on inside.


The car drove on the road for about ten minutes.


The road conditions were about the same as what Chi Qing had expected.
Before they’d even gotten off the highway, the speed of traffic on this road heading to the outskirts of the city slowed before his eyes, quickly merging into the road he’d been stuck in traffic for ages on the last time he went to the police station.


If he wanted to escape, this was undoubtedly the best time to do it.


Three minutes later, a black Maybach hadn’t been off the highway for long—the body of the car suddenly swerved left and right.
The width of the swerving wasn’t large, but it was enough to attract the attention of the driver in the lane next to it; after all, the two cars had almost scraped against each other without warning.


This suddenly scared the driver from the other lane into almost slamming on the brakes.


“Shit,” a cigarette hung from the driver’s mouth, and he cursed as he glanced out the window, “Can you fucking drive—”


With this glance he saw the car in the lane next to him; the two people inside were awfully close together.


At the start, he thought this was some kind of scene that wasn’t suitable for children, and he wanted to curse the modern young people for being so insane.
But then he took a closer look, realizing that the man in the passenger’s seat wearing a black sweater had suddenly shot up from his seat.
He was holding onto the grab handle above the door, his whole body almost suspended in the air—like something out of an action film.


“……,” this scene almost scared the driver into letting the cigarette in his mouth fall onto his crotch.


(t/n: if you look at the raws now, you’ll only see the boxes of doom (□□) in place of ‘crotch,’ but I promise I have a screenshot of how it used to say that haha.
Fortunately, not that many words in this series got boxed, but I’ll point the boxed words when they happen)


What are they playing at.


The Fast and the Furious?


Not only had the driver from the adjacent lane not imagined it, Xie Lin also hadn’t imagined that Chi Qing would suddenly throw himself over to try and get control of the steering wheel.
When he couldn’t get control, he immediately tried to use all his strength to kick him.
If the car doors hadn’t been locked, there was no doubt in his mind that Chi Qing would have kicked himself out of the car.


At the same time as he was stabilizing the steering wheel and trying to avoid the cars in the lane to the left, he was using the hand bound with Chi Qing’s to very effortfully press him back into his seat, “Are you insane—!?”


Chi Qing, “Let me out of the car.”


“I’ll say it again,” Chi Qing spoke coldly, “Let me out of the car.”


As the two people inside the car were fighting, the car had already continued for over a kilometer.


If they drove forward another kilometer, they’d reach the police department.


Xie Lin immediately accelerated, and as they got closer to his destination, Chi Qing gradually realized that the route was not exactly the same as the one he’d predicted.


Xie Lin suddenly engaged the emergency break, stopping at the entrance to the police station.


Xie Lin, “Get out.”


Chi Qing sat in the car, facing the huge two characters “Public Security” on the doors to the Yong’an-Division Police Station, his train of thought immediately breaking, “……?”
