King of the Night – 03 

It was too late to experience the pain of her throat being slashed. In a flash, the whole space seemed to be still for a moment. After the illusion of being suffocated momentarily, Bai Xun suddenly opened her eyes— 

She was completely lying in bed; the dim yellow bedside lamp was still and eerie. 

She kicked off the quilt and jumped out of bed, panting and touching her neck—En, it’s smooth and okay!  

Fortunately, when she started the game this week, she also obtained the “time adjuster” prop, which can move time back by 10 minutes! Otherwise, she would have to start again from the start, discarding the hard work she put towards the game progress!!!  

Damn it, Pei Yan, right? You’re dead! 

There was still sweat on Bai Xun’s forehead. She looked around her room carefully. There was a person sent by Feng Chi to protect her, so Pei Yan could only come in through the window. 

Time is running out, what will she do? So that Pei Yan will believe her? 

Directly pretend to be part of the club’s service staff to save him, then use the good halo of a little angel to touch him with kindness?  

No, it won’t work. 

Just “she saved him” is enough for Pei Yan to think of a conspiracy theory. 

As time passed little by little, Bai Xun’s eyes brightened. 

Pei Yan is a lone wolf. He has been betrayed so much that he doesn’t believe anyone, but if he falls in love, it’s like a vicious dog who will fight for you. So, if you want to attack him, only those who would die for him can really enter his heart.   

Now the most important thing was not to be killed. Let him believe that she is indeed a white lotus without a single stain of mud, genuinely full of kindness and sincerity. 

Of course, all of this is required if she isn’t killed by Pei Yan, she needs enough time to get close to him.   

Bai Xun flipped through the messy props inventory. The rest were broken and useless junk props. Unfortunately, the time adjuster can only be used once. Otherwise she was afraid she would’ve died and became a ghost, but she will just survive and start over again!  

There was an electric shock stick, Bai Xun got it and held it in her hand. She quickly tested it and hid behind the curtains. 

Hee hee hee, since she was kind enough to be a little angel and no one believed it, then let’s try something else! 

She didn’t know how long it took, a faint bloody smell arrived, and Bai Xun immediately held her breath. 

The man seemed to observe the window outside for a while, then the window was pushed open, and a figure landed to the ground silently. 

In the next moment, he hadn’t had time to respond when Bai Xun stunned him from behind. 

The slight bloody smell in the air was mixed with the smell of burnt flesh. 

Bai Xun didn’t have time to rest. She found a rope and tied up the man quickly, then searched and confiscated the man’s belongings. Only then was she relieved.  

She was in the mood to observe Pei Yan slowly. While his handsome facial features were cold, hard and pale; his forehead was still sweaty. His abdomen was distorted with a deep knife wound and thus, his black clothes were wet and messy.  

Bai Xun simply bandaged him, then moved a chair and sat not far from Pei Yan, quietly waiting for him to wake up.  

She didn’t turn on the overhead lights. In the dim light, she could only see the other’s blurred features.  

She didn’t know how long it took for Pei Yan to slowly open his eyes. After a while, he recovered his consciousness. He couldn’t move his hands or feet, but he didn’t panic, instead he stared at the only person in the room as cold as a wolf.  

The slender figure was a woman. 

She didn’t kill him and gave him a simple bandage. 

She won’t let him die. 

After a while, Pei Yan completely calmed down. 

“What are you going to do?” 

The calm and quiet voice was hoarse and deep. Bai Xun was studying the movement of the dagger in her hand.  

Sexy smoky voice, it’s online now and killer! 

This man is too sexy and couldn’t control his sexy voice.  

Fortunately, she survived under the bombardment of various enticing voices. 

She took a moment to look at the 0% favorability. Neither hate nor like, a very cold-hearted person. 

Bai Xun approached slowly, squatted in front of him, and stared coldly, “I should ask you this.” 

“Who are you? What did you want to do when you broke into my room?” Bai Xun asked icily with his dagger in front of him.  

She completely transferred from the role of being questioned to be the one to question, so that the initiative was in her hands. 

Pei Yan glanced at the dagger dangling in front of his eyes, the posture wasn’t professional. Even though her tone was cold, there was no fierceness in her eyes.   

Simple interrogation? 

He didn’t expect to be ambushed by Pei Jiao and outsiders. It was a coincidence that he escaped into this room. However, this is a closed place. Does this woman really know nothing?   

“I’m a member of Xingrong Gang. I was injured and chased by another group. I just fled here …” Pei Yan’s mind moved slightly and lightly said, “We have no grievances and no hatred. If you let me go, I’ll leave immediately. ” 

Bai Xun looked at him carefully for a while, and sneered: “Do you think I’m stupid? If I untie it, I might be dead.” 

Pei Yan wasn’t surprised, now he was more confident that the other side wouldn’t kill him. He looked at her, even though he was assisted, and a dagger was pointed at him, he was still calm.   

“Then what do you want?” 

Big brother, if I say I want to save you, would you believe it? 

Bai Xun glanced at him but didn’t speak. She was obviously thinking about what to do with him.  

At this time, there was a light knock outside the door, then Feng Yi sounded, “Big sister Xun, did you see anyone?”  

Bai Xun was startled, then glanced at Pei Yan. Obviously, his eyes also changed: sharp and alert.  

He was confident that Bai Xun won’t kill him, but the others … 

“Don’t make a sound …” Bai Xun’s voice was very low in his ear, and the light aroma flickered by.   

Pei Yan’s dark eyes became deeper. Wasn’t she with the group of people outside? What’s the purpose? 

After a pause, Bai Xun slowly said, “I’ve fallen asleep. I don’t see anyone, what’s wrong?” 

The person who was clearly guarding the door informed her there seemed to be something moving inside, but he didn’t hear anything after a long while. In the end, she was still Feng Chi’s fiancée, he could only leave it. 

“It’s nothing, there’s something going on outside. There’s a small gang fight and I was worried about your safety. Since you’re okay, just call me if you need anything.” 

“Okay, you go rest. You don’t have to keep watch.” 

When Feng Yi left, Bai Xun looked at the person in front of her again. Her expression was a little tangled. If she let him go, she would be the one who will die the next moment. But if someone come and noticed Feng Yi’s attitude, she was afraid that he would immediately die.   

Pei Yan was certain that he has never seen her before, so why was she helping him? 

“Why don’t you hand me over?” 

He was very calm, but his voice was a bit weak. The smell of blood was becoming more intense. If he went on like this, he would lose too much blood and pass out, and even his life would be in danger. 

“Shut up.” 

After all, with all the people around Feng Chi, how could the person following Feng Chi be so stupid as to know nothing? But even if she follows Feng Chi’s work, there will be difficulties. She was kind-hearted and couldn’t bear to see someone die in front of her…  

It seemed that Bai Xun finally made up her mind. She took the first aid kit and brought over a basin of hot water.  

“I can’t take you to a doctor, so I can only tend to you personally. It’s up to you whether you live or not.”  

She said coldly, took the alcohol, looked at Pei Yan’s flesh and blood, then frowned. “Also, don’t make a sound.” 

She felt uneasy and found a towel to stuff into his mouth.  

Although Pei Yan knew that the other party meant well for him, he still had an inexplicable feeling of humiliation suffocating his heart. 

Therefore, when Bai Xun dipped alcohol to disinfect him, his whole body’s muscles were tensed, there was sweat all over his bulging blue tendons and his whole body was trembling, but he took great efforts to resist making a sound.  

After Bai Xun finally pasted the gauze around his lean waist. Pei Yan’s whole body looked as if it was dunked from water. His black clothes were soaked with blood and sweat. 

Bai Xun was elated, motherfucker, let me cut your neck at our first encounter, it really hurts!

    Ah, so the time mechanic only works once? Bit cheap but at least it’s enough to save her life and keep her from having to do it ALL over again…

    I also like her cunning in dealing with Pei Yan, who is probably the hardest capture target so far. He seems like a fitting final boss for her to work her charms on. Let’s see if she can get him to be HER fierce guard dog!

    Wow, this game’s difficulty level must be set to HELL. Now she has to somehow juggle two mafia bosses trying to cut each other throat (and she already got her throat cut once), terrific.
