Feeling exhausted, Xiu Mei sat back down in the car, panting heavily. Due to much jumping and hopping, the wound on her leg started to bleed again.
The cars behind them wouldn't stop chasing and their car was already riddled with holes everywhere. Sooner or later this car will be of no use for them. If this was not Commander Zeus' high-grade military vehicle and ordinary Suv, it would have blown up a long ago.
They were about to cross an interaction when a large number of reinforcements joined in the fight from a different direction. They were trying to hound them from all directions, like hungry wolfs.
She inhaled a trembling breath and looked at the sky with eyes full of hope. 'Please Jianyu… Come fast before it's too late.
A person is never afraid to die. What scares him most is the thought of how the loved ones will live without him. How will they console themselves? Will they ever be able to come over the loss? Who will make them smile in a difficult situation? Will they ever move on? Can we talk to them one last time?
Xiu Mei is aware of her value in Jianyu's life. She is his life. His soul. His heartbeat. Just the thought of Jianyu holding her lifeless body in his arms froze her blood. She knows he will never be able to come over her death and would blame himself throughout life.
Tears stained her cheeks, but being the stubborn woman she wiped them before gripping the gun tightly. Ready to fight again…. If death is inevitable then she will fight till the end.
"Keep driving. No matter what the situation is, just keep driving"
She instructed and leaned out of the window to target the car tyres again. Finally, she managed to hit on the tyre of the front vehicle, causing it to slow down in speed. Just when she thought they have borrowed some time, their car was attacked by a rocket launcher.
The impact was so strong that it skidded for a few meters and slammed into a tree. Xiu Mei looked at the gun in disappointment. Although a powerful gun, it cannot fight against rocket launchers.
"Dang it! Get down. We'll run towards the forest" Ghost pulled out another gun hidden on his waist belt and kicked open the door of his side. "Get down from this side"
Xiu Mei didn't give him any reply but thought of an idea to attract Jianyu's attention if he is nearby and simultaneously avoid her enemies for some time.
If her hope of survival was near to zero than she will play a last gamble to survive.
"Give me your shirt" saying she simultaneously took off her shirt as well. Ghost wanted to ask the reason but this was not the time to question each other. He did as asked by her.
Hastily she took off the collar around Roxie and Gemie's neck and tied all the clothes together. "C'mon everyone! Get off the car"
Before getting off she opened the oil tank. They rushed down and hide behind the non-visible side of the car that opens towards the jungle.
She stuffed the thin part of the cloth in the oil tank and stretched the remaining towards the jungle. She saw her enemies have stopped a few meters away from the car and have got down. Cautiously they are coming in their direction with machine guns in hand. She faked a random shot towards them to scare them away until her set up is complete.
"Uncle Ghost, Give me the lighter" She spread her palm.
"…."'How did she know I smoke?'
"Lighter! Give it to me. I saw you smoking"
After getting the lighter she looked at him with a soft gaze, "Uncle Ghost, you have to go now. You don't have anything to do with this, they are after me as I killed Zeus. This path leads to the heavy forest. With the help of Roxie and Gemie's sharp sense you'll easily escape this"
He shook his head and answered firmly, "I'll rather die than leave you alone in this situation"
"Don't be stupid! Be rational. I'll cover your back" saying she looked at the military and fired two shots to keep them away.
"In that case, I'll cover for you. You are still young, have your whole life in front of you. Go find your man" He checked the number of bullets in the magazine and looked at his dogs, "Take them with you"
"Why are you willing to sacrifice your life for me? Plus I don't run away from the situation. Please leave…" She said firmly and moved back a little.
"You have no right to dictate me. My decision is firm" He moved back a little too understanding what her plan was.
They stopped firing and waited for the enemies to come closer to the car befor setting the cloth on fire.
With a huge blast, the car was blown into the air, soldiers standing in the close proximity of car were thrown into the air due to heavy impact.
Some crashed into the trees and some fall down to the ground. In that blast, Xiu Mei managed to kill many soldiers and countless were injured.
To save themselves from the blast, Xiu Mei and team lay down on the ground over stomach. To protect Roxie and Gemie she pulled them close to her body, under her arms.
Xiu Mei tried to lift her head to check the situation at the enemy side but felt something heavy hugging her. She let go of Roxie and Gemie. Her brows furrowed upon realizing that Ghost had protected her who was laying above her with his arms wrapped around her protectively.
She gently rolled him off of her body and went over to check his pulse.
'Thank God! He is alive'
She sensed something wet on her stomach and realized that not only the wound on her leg was bleeding but the one on her waist was dripping blood from the dressing. Her head started to spin and dark clouds covered her vision as the adrenaline rush was dying down because of excessive blood loss.
She gritted her teeth and tried to get up, but can't find enough energy to even lift her arm. She looked at the Gun in her hand. Mark XIX .50 cal gun has 7 bullets in one magazine, as per her counting she had fired six rounds from this magazine, which means one last bullet is left.
Instead of being captured by these ugly men and go through numerous tortures again, it's better to kill yourself. Yes… Yes, she wanted to live, she wanted to live her life with Jianyu… But she knows what these men will do to her if they captured her alive.
It would be better for Jianyu to see her dead body in one piece instead of raped, mutilated and badly tortured.
"Jianyu, I'm sorry for being selfish. I'm sorry for not fulfilling my promise to you. I'm sorry for being a stubborn girl. I'm sorry for being trouble in your life. I wish you all the happiness in this world. As my last wish, I want you to move ahead in your life and find a better partner than me. Life is too long to live alone. Forget and Forgive me. I Love You My Monster to the moon and back"
