Xu Weilai was injured and her movements weren’t agile enough. Furthermore, the man in black was bent on killing her and possessed a weapon. She would not gain anything if she were to fight her assailant head-on and thus, the best solution was to escape.
Xu Weilai immediately began to make a run for it.
She does not know which way to go to head down the mountain but she had no time to think. She could only choose her path based on her instincts and tried her best to maintain a distance between herself and the man in black.
Fortunately, as she had been working out with Simon during this period of time, she had almost fully regained her physical fitness. Pain from her wound made her break out in cold sweat, but she still persevered and continued to run.
As her assailant was not injured, her movements were naturally faster than Xu Weilai’s. The assailant, too, seemed to work out frequently, for her steps were quick and steady and tailed behind Xu Weilai closely in relentless pursuit.
She caught up with Xu Weilai a few times and brandished her knife at her.
However, Xu Weilai continued to run and remained alert throughout. Despite dodging, she was inevitably scratched a few times. She was hurting and bleeding on both her arms and back and her face gradually turned pale. Her knees involuntarily went soft and she collapsed to the ground and rolled a few times until she was at the edge of the cliff.
Many rocks tumbled down the mountain and landed with a terrifying crash.
Xu Weilai gritted her teeth and supported herself on the ground with her hands. At the same time, the man in black had caught up with her and stopped a few steps away from her.
She could obviously tell that Xu Weilai had nowhere to run anymore and her lips curled up into a smile once again and a gloomy, maniacal expression appeared in her eyes.
She was no longer in a hurry, for Xu Weilai was cornered. Raising her knife, she took a step closer towards Xu Weilai.
In return, Xu Weilai took a step back.
Due to the loss of blood, Xu Weilai’s vision inevitably began to turn hazy and her consciousness was gradually slipping away. “I have to escape before I blackout. If not, I’ll be fully at her mercy,” she thought.
The man in black took another step forward and Xu Weilai took in a deep breath silently. Pursing her lips tightly, she summoned all the remaining strength in her body.
Just when the man in black took one final step towards Xu Weilai and aim her knife straight for Xu Weilai’s abdomen, the sharp-eyed and agile Xu Weilai grabbed hold of her hands with all her strength, forcing her to stop. The tip of the knife touched Xu Weilai’s skin but did not pierce through it.
The man in black stared at Xu Weilai’s face which had turned as white as a sheet of paper. Her entire body was trembling violently and she probably barely had any strength left. “She really overestimated herself,” thought the man in black.
However, a person’s desire to survive could draw out endless potential. Xu Weilai held onto her assailant’s hand for dear life and pushed the tip of the blade away from herself.
The two of them fought silently. The night wind became even stronger and Xu Weilai felt so cold that she could hardly stand.
Ultimately, she couldn’t hold on for long and the knife blade that she managed to push away from her body was once again aimed at her and was almost about to pierce through her body.
At that critical moment, Xu Weilai seemed to hear a rush of footsteps. In the next instant, someone kicked right on the hand of the man in black.
The force was too strong and sudden that the man in black’s hand was kicked to the side and her knife was flung out of her hand. It flew through the air in a parabola and landed on the ground by the side.
The man in black subconsciously rushed over to pick it up, but the person was faster than her and quickly strode over to kick the knife further away.
