Just as she was floating in the air, the sudden sound of a voice pulled her back to consciousness.
“What are you doing?!”
The voice was really familiar. Xia Qingyi thought for a second in her trance before she remembered that it was Mo Han’s voice.
Mo Han was standing in the rain as he looked at the crowd standing about three meters away under a dusky yellow street lamp. His heart skipped a beat at the moment he saw them, knowing that there was about an 80% possibility that they had something to do with Xia Qingyi’s message.
Mo Han had never felt so nervous before. He closed in on the group of people step by step as his body trembled slightly. It was the first time he had prayed so sincerely that what he would see was not what he had imagined it to be.
“I advise you not to be a busybody!” one of the man shouted angrily at the sight of Mo Han walking over.
Mo Han continued to walk forward as he looked only at the center position.
“You don’t understand human language do you?!” that man walked towards Mo Han, leaving a small gap opened to reveal the center position.
Mo Han took a glance, and his mind exploded.
The outcome was a lot worse than he had expected.
Mo Han twisted the wrist of the man that had charged towards him. With a crack, his bone position changed. He screamed in pain and was kicked to the ground by Mo Han.
The remaining men rushed up to fight with Mo Han after seeing that one of them had been taken down. Mo Han, on the other hand, merely stared at Xia Qingyi, who was lying on the ground with her top torn into bits and pieces. His eyes hurt at the sight before him. He could not bear to look any further after just a glance.
It was as if Mo Han had gone crazy, as he fought the men surrounding him with red eyes. He could not be rational whenever he thought that these men were the ones that had put Xia Qingyi into this state. He wanted to kill all of these men, not to spare anyone.
There were five of them fighting Mo Han together. One of them was holding a pole and smashed it down with his strength, only to be stopped by Mo Han in his tracks. He then pulled that person over using the pole and punched his back. He kicked that person hard in his stomach next, and that person fell to the floor, unmoving.
The men had been knocked out by Mo Han in a flash and they could not get up anymore. It was only then that he relaxed his wrist and walked towards Xia Qingyi.
Mo Han recalled that he had walked many paths in his life.
When he walked towards the judge during a court hearing during his first time as a defense lawyer.
When he had walked blankly towards his mother after seeing his father hit his mother.
When he walked towards his father’s corpse alone in the dark mortuary in the hospital after receiving the news of his father’s death.
But there was never a time that felt like this moment.
Every step felt like he was stepping on knives. He wanted to finish walking this path as soon as possible, yet he slowed down. He did not dare to face everything that was in front of him.
It was still raining as Mo Han finally finished walking this path under the dusty yellow street lamp. He stopped by Xia Qingyi’s legs.
He saw Xia Qingyi lying on the ground, covered in mud. She had both of her eyes shut tightly. Her wet hair stuck to her pale skin. One of her hands were tied to the pole. Her upper body was naked, with barely any clothing covering her. She was still wearing her jeans, though the button had been pulled off.
Mo Han’s eyes turned red again. He stabilized his emotions as he took a few deep breaths, before he took off his shirt shakily and covered her upper body with it.
“You… what did you do to her?” Mo Han said as he bit his teeth, returning to step hard on one of the men’s hands.
That man’s accomplices had already ran while they could, and he was the only one left on the ground struggling. His hand hurt from Mo Han’s stepping, to the point that he felt it was going to be maimed. “Ah! … I didn’t do anything! We merely beat her up. It was Old Zhao! He wanted to rape that girl. We advised him not to do it and he wouldn’t listen. In the end, he couldn’t take off that girl’s pants as it was wet from the rain. He didn’t have the chance to do anything before you arrived.”
Mo Han was so angry that he wanted to explode as he listened to that man’s words. He stepped on that man’s hand harder until there was a crisp sound of bones breaking. That man cried out in pain as he begged for forgiveness while writhing on the ground.
Amongst the cries of agony in this desolate rainy night, Mo Han could hear a soft voice from behind him.
“Older brother… Older brother…”
