“Oh my god! We’re doomed!” By the time the timer of the bomb screeched, everyone was already on the floor covering their heads.
They were cursing Yun Jian in their minds.
Why did a kid like her have to barge in and make a scene! All of them were going to die here because of her!
Other than Yun Jian who crossed her arms standing on her spot, everyone else around her, including the bomb squad, were currently bracing themselves on the floor, trying to minimize the damage that would hit them.
The final ten seconds of the pressing beeps finally came to an end. Those on the floor with arms over their heads remained in that position for all ten seconds.
Suddenly, the girl’s melodious voice drifted above the flustered people who were on the floor thinking that the bomb was detonating. “Is it fun to stay on the floor?”
The men jolted.
They were fine?
They did not die?
The bomb did not blow up?
That meant that the time bomb was really defused!
As they stood up in confusion, they were bewildered. All of them could not help sucking in a breath.
Her decision to snip the yellow wire was correct!
If Yun Jian had not appeared here, all of them could possibly have died because of the experts’ single-minded opinion!
By the time all of them regained their composure and breathed in deeply feeling the lingering fear, they felt embarrassed for themselves, especially the expert who patronized Yun Jian just now. He was entirely flushed.
“Young – young lady, thank you so much. If it weren’t for you... we’d have...” A SWAT member who underestimated Yun Jian just now stepped up to begin his apology, wiping the cold sweat that blanketed his forehead.
Before he was halfway through, Yun Jian cut him off. “No need.”
There was a slight frown on Yun Jian as she spoke before she headed out.
Those people in the factory wanted to speak up but they were too ashamed to say anything once they thought about what they had done. Flustered, they watched Yun Jian leave with a meek gaze.
Once Yun Jian left the factory, she narrowed her eyes. With a light arch of her brow, she conclusively ran towards a certain direction.
The person who strapped Gu Sha’s specialized AK4 time bomb must not have left too far away. The group message that Ge Junjian had sent just now verified her hunch as well.
The latter was currently leading the Special Forces to surround and lock the culprit down while their location was where Yun Jian was running toward.
Running about three to four kilometers in the predetermined direction, she soon saw a squad of Special Forces in their full gears surrounding a residential building.
There were neighboring residents who stood outside to spectate the operation but these citizens were far from the crime scene. Although the gossipers were scared, they could not stifle their curiosity as they peered at the building from where they were.
As Yun Jian passed by, she heard them talk.
“Hey, you know someone broke into a unit of the residential building in front there and held the tenant’s hostage?”
“Did you see? The Special Forces have been deployed! They’re surrounding the building now.”
“It’s said that the criminal has even got a time bomb and strapped it somewhere around Hutou Road nearby but the bomb squad has gone over now. They must’ve defused it!”
Someone tattled as if they had witnessed the incident like they were there when it happened.
“For real? How did something like this happen around here! What’s gonna happen to the family that’s held hostage?!” another person cried.
The gossiper just now replied confidently, “We have the police. Look, even the Special Forces are here. Just leave it to them! We’ll just watch from here, as long as nothing happens to us!”
