Chapter 398: Lin Chuxue Got Shot (Part Two)
Then, he slowly tried to open his eyes, and magically, he felt there was no discomfort at all. He made the shocking realization that he didn’t have trouble breathing at all… No, strictly speaking, he was still holding his breath, but it felt like every pore on his body could breathe or something, and he no longer needed just his nose to acquire oxygen. Just like that, Xu Cheng stayed underwater for at least 10 minutes and didn’t feel like suffocating at all.
Wait a second.
Xu Cheng seemed to remember, he actually tried this before but it was just that he didn’t realize it at that time. Back in Britain when he dove into the pool and hid there to drown Tom, he didn’t notice that he was actually in the water for more than five minutes until he made sure that Tom had drowned. The whole progress lasted at least five minutes, and back then, Xu Cheng didn’t even notice that he acquired this new underwater survival characteristic!
Xu Cheng lost track of how long he was in the tub for, and he finally came out when it was already noon. When he stood in front of the mirror and saw that he still looked like a normal human being, he finally let out a sigh of relief.
He tried to enter invisible mode, and it was very successful. Everything was working, nothing seemed to have changed upon requiring this new ability or after using water to heal.
His penetrating vision was still there too, and he was surprised to see a man standing outside of his door. The guy was in the uniform of the hotel staff.
He knocked on the door, and in broken Chinese he said, “It’s time to check out.”
What the fack, I just opened the room this morning and you are kicking me out at noon? How much larger could the flaw be?
Xu Cheng kept looking at this sneaky man from inside. He was looking left and right, and he seemed to be not sure whether Xu Cheng was actually inside the room. Right then, Xu Cheng got a text message from Bei Shan, and there was a photo of some dude. Xu Cheng paused for a moment, Wait a second, isn’t this dude the guy standing right outside my door?
On the text it wrote, This is the assassin hired by one of the Wei Nation’s financial groups. He’s a master of Nin Dao, and he was sent in retaliation for you closing their underground money house in Huaxia and killing a senior manager in Vegas.
Xu Cheng got it.
At this moment, his phone rang, and it directly alerted the killer at the door. It turned out to actually be a call from Bei Shan!
“Yo, Xu Cheng, did you see the information I sent you? Our Dragon Division’s intelligence team tracked down a master of Nin Dao from the Wei Nation entering the border, and we found that he has been tracking you at your condo area for the past two months. We suspect that he’s a killer sent by a financial group in the Wei Nation to kill you, so you better be careful.”
Xu Cheng directly cursed, “I’m already facking careful enough, it’s your call that alerted him, you b–ch!”
Then, the door of the room was directly kicked open. The killer heard the ringtone from inside and decided to just rush in without a word.
The moment he came in, Xu Cheng threw his phone at him. The killer directly kicked away the phone that flew over and started firing consecutive shots at Xu Cheng. But, he shockingly realized, his target actually disappeared without a trace!
Then, with a sudden crack, his neck was broken as he fell straight to the ground.
With his ears and penetrating vision, Xu Cheng saw 7 more guys coming out from the elevators and stairs. He picked up his phone and put on his clothes as he called Bei Shan back and swore, “I want to facking fire you, what kind of intelligence did you give me? They sent at least a whole squad!”
Bei Shan bitterly smile and said, “Come on, man, I’m still resting on the hospital bed. I’m on sick leave yet I’m still sending you intelligence on the enemy, where can you find an employee as good as me? Oh right, I have to remind you, this is the capital, don’t cause too much chaos. Be a bit gentle please.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Go fack yourself!” Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. He could only take off his clothes again and be naked like a perv. Then, he went invisible and quietly walked down the hallway to fight those 7 assassins. Originally, he could show off his brute force and handsomely 1v7 head-on, but to avoid causing a commotion and gunshots, he could only use this kind of shameful way of killing people while being naked. If his wife were to find out about this, would that change the majestic image of him in her heart?
Just when Xu Cheng was about to head out quietly, his phone rang again, and it was from Auntie Lan? (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
When Xu Cheng picked it up, he heard Auntie Lan anxiously talking, “Young Master, Young Madam got shot! Just now we got attacked at our hotel!”
Xu Cheng’s pupils enlarged immediately. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
