Chapter 3: Hidden in the Dark… Part 3—The Enemy—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)
Do we head east or toward Jiu Ge?
The moment Jiang Ziya and Fu Jun escaped from the barrier dimension, they ran into a dilemma. The old beggar from the barrier dimension had told them to head east, but the bookstore wasn’t in the east. Fu Jun wanted to tell Fu Taiyi about what they had found out first and ask him to help with the search.
“If we go to Jiu Ge first and then head east, the positioning would be different, wouldn’t it?”
Jiang Ziya made a guess. What the old man meant just now was for them to head east the moment they left the alley.
Fu Jun hesitated and said, “Yeah. Even if we go to Jiu Ge first and then return here to head east, it might be different by then too because the time would be different.”
“Then, what should we do… Oh, how about we call the boss?”
Fu Jun shook his head and said, “No, Taiyi didn’t want to deal with all these things in the first place, so a phone call would definitely let him fib his way out. I want to go directly to him and drag him out to help with the search.”
Jiang Ziya agreed when he heard Fu Jun’s explanation.
The boss was exactly someone who didn’t take his work seriously. He didn’t even look after his own bookstore correctly. Wanting him to rescue someone that had nothing to do with him might really require him to be forcefully dragged out.
