In a shadowy room in the test base, a man lay dying and prostrate, only to see the man reach for the door handle and crawl out.
The man was crawling hard above the corridor when suddenly there was a man standing in front of him, a man who said to him in a condescending manner, “Just keep your present posture and go to those people, and when you die, I will take good care of your family for you.”
After saying that, the black shadow stretched out his hand and a black cavernous circle of light appeared across the air, only to see this black shadow step into the circle of light, and then the whole person disappeared into the corridor.
“Brother-in-law, brother-in-law, I caught a sneaky guy in the corridor!”
Xu Haoran hurriedly ran into the room, and the crowd turned their heads to see Xu Haoran walking in with a dying, frail man in his arms.
“Who are you? Why are you here?”
Tifa asked warily of the man who had suddenly appeared in the middle of their vision.
Xu Muqing and Gu Yanxi both also looked at him with nervous faces, and Li Hang walked up to the frail man at this time and asked at him, “If I’m not wrong, your sudden appearance here should be at the behest of some people.”
“Before I get angry, you’d better tell me the whole story.”
When the man heard Li Hang’s words, a look of shock and disbelief appeared on his face.
Originally, he had already prepared a draft in his mind, and he only had to tell Li Hang and the others what he had prepared beforehand.
But the man never expected that he would be directly poked by Li Hang before he could even open his mouth, which was so unexpected that the man was now acting so nervous that he even stammered in his speech.
When Xu Haoran heard Li Hang’s words, he jumped up almost at the same time, he directly pushed the man fiercely to the side and pointed at the man and said nonchalantly, “Fine, you ungrateful fellow, Laozi saw pity on you and helped you over, how dare you backstab us.”
“If you don’t make it clear today, I’ll kill you!”
“Go ahead, go ahead, kill me if you want, no matter what I do, I’m a dead man anyway, but if I die, you won’t be able to get along either.”
The man was desperate, it didn’t matter if he died, but his family could not be implicated by him.
Li Hang’s face was stoic as he pulled Xu Haoran to the side and asked in a cold voice at the man, “If you think that you can give those you care about hope of survival by approaching things in such a negative way, I think you are really naive.”
“What do you mean?” The man asked with a nervous look on his face.
“What do I mean, literally, huh? I don’t know exactly what the hell the people behind you are up to, but I can tell you very clearly that the other side will never change their mind from their original intentions because of what you’ve done.”
“For people who have no value, they won’t be willing to put in a single extra cent of energy.”
As Li Hang’s words fell, the frail man became particularly emotional: “No, no, he promised me that he would help me take care of my wife and children as long as I let you all die here.”
“You are dead, and people still care about your wife and children, are you stupid.” Xu Haoran spat out in no good humour.
The frail man flinched for a moment, followed closely by his hands that couldn’t help but clutch his head, and his whole body crouched on the ground in pain.
I saw him clench his hands into fists and keep smashing them against his head, “Damn it, why did I believe him, damn it let me out, let me out! I can’t die here, I must save my wife and children!”
“What do you mean by that, why would you die here?” Xu Muqing had already heard that something was wrong within this man’s words and immediately asked in a deep voice.
At this time, Li Hang arrogantly stepped forward and pulled the man crouching on the ground in front of him, saying in a cold voice, word by word, “I’m giving you a chance now to tell the truth.”
“In this way, you may still have a chance to get your wife and children out, otherwise ……”
“It’s no use, it’s no use, we can’t get out, we don’t stand a chance!” The man shouted out of control, and his original weak appearance was now gone.
The man rushed out of the room like a madman, and Li Hang followed him at a brisk pace.
Xu Haoran, Xu Muqing and the other girls also hurriedly followed Li Hang’s footsteps and left the room.
After passing through a long corridor, the group came to a place where there was a closed door in front of them, and the sound of men’s frantic cries came out from inside every now and then.
Li Hang shielded Xu Muqing and the others behind himself, “I’ll go in first, you guys wait outside.”
“Honey, be careful.”
Li Hang nodded solemnly, then carefully and respectfully pushed the door to enter, it was an empty place, as big as half a football field.
As soon as he entered, he heard an intelligent robot say, “Welcome in.”
Immediately afterwards, all the lights above Li Hang’s head came on, and through the bright light all the way through, he saw the frail man sitting in front of a pile of electronic instruments.
At this moment, he was grasping an axe in his hand, and kept swinging at the pile of electronic equipment.
“Open the door for me, let me out!”
Suddenly, a sharp alarm sounded throughout the empty space, followed by the bright lights all going out, replaced by a dangerous red glow.
“What is this thing, and why does it keep counting down?”
Li Hang noticed a strange phenomenon, that all the power was cut off, but not far away on the big screen, there was always a countdown number going.
“It’s just like what you see, it’s a countdown timer, only unlike a normal countdown, it’s counting down to the lives we have left.”
“It now says 15 minutes and 39 seconds, which means that we will all be going to the Yellow Springs together in 15 minutes and 39 seconds!”
The man laughed maniacally, talking while shedding tears, the appearance of crying one moment and laughing the next was creepy to watch.
Li Hang’s eyes changed colour, although he had already expected it, but really hearing this news from inside the man’s mouth, he was still more or less nervous.
After all, he was not alone now, but in charge of the lives of those he cared about most.
Almost at the same time, Li Hang took a big step forward and pulled the man’s collar: “Is there an alternate escape route here? I can promise you that when we get out, you and your family will be treated well and I will help you get them out.”
“It’s too late, it’s all too late, if only I had met you sooner.”
A look of despair came over the frail man’s face, only to see him bite his tongue so hard he killed himself outright!
Li Hang threw him to the side as soon as he could and rushed to the door at the first opportunity, “Quick, let’s leave immediately!”
