Bang bang bang!
I pushed the muzzle away with a hand. My devoted servant really did fire on me—if I had been just the slightest bit slower, the bullets would have lodged themselves in my brain, not even giving me the chance to turn into an aberrant!
Almost dying in the most random manner pissed me off to no end. I threw a punch at him, then started slapping his face non-stop!
Blackie originally moved to stop me, but when he saw that I was just slapping him, he fell into an awkward silence.
After a dozen consecutive slaps, I finally stopped when I’d slapped the wits out of him. I raged, “Wake up, Chen Yanqing! You bastard! How the hell are you gonna make it up to me if you damage this precious face of mine?!”
In that moment, everyone turned their eyes onto the “precious face.”
Chen Yanqing was also staring at the “precious face” in a daze. Suddenly, he snapped out of it and shouted, “Xiao Yu? Why are you here? Did you get caught?”
I immediately grabbed his head in one hand, hauled him up, and even started radiating icy energies. I growled, “‘Caught,’ my ass! Is this cold enough to wake you up?!”
Then, I threw Chen Yanqing onto the floor. He spat out one mouthful of ice, then another, wiped his face, and said, “I feel like I’m still dreaming.”
That was what he was saying, but he looked fully awake.
