A dark night like tonight was perhaps the most appropriate of nights for the deeds that were to unfold —
Yuan Yuan Yuan must admit to this talent of hers — having been tragically chased and hunted down by a variety of demons for a variety of reasons, she had self-learnt the art of glamour, and had became incredibly good at it.
The stench of blood was particularly strong in the dark, desolate alley. Even the torrential rain was unable to wash away the pungent smell.
A very strange sound echoed from the pitch dark alley; it sounded as though someone was moaning, or as though someone was sucking something.
A large shadow was standing within the alley. His height close to three metres, he was as though a mini-mountain. A tall bone protruded from his back, as though some sort of armour.
This person appeared very strange indeed; almost unlike a normal person. His back was bent, and he was squatting on the ground doing something. His head was bobbing up and down, and the strange gulping sounds continued.
The rain grew larger and heavier. The surroundings was started to get misty.
There were barely anyone that’d walk past such an alley in the day, much less at night. This person had appeared out of nowhere, and his actions were currently unknown.
The alley was incredibly quiet save for the occasional sounds coming from his direction.
Just as the squatting person was engrossed in carrying out his activity, a voice suddenly sounded in the rain: “Big guy, get up.”
The voice was very sudden, it’d appeared out of nowhere. And against the backdrop of such a heavy rain, it sounded almost as though an accidental comment, an incorrectly played note in a song.
The person squatting on the ground paused, before slowly turning around. The entrance of the alley stood a tall, lanky silhouette; the rain had left the city in a foggy mist, making the figure out to appear as though it was a scene straight out of an old television show. ♢ YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’RE DRAWING ME, CHAPTER 03 is hosted at ZHANLANN.COM ♢
The moment the big guy turned his head around, a string of red liquid slid down his mouth, as though a snapped string of pearls, dripping slowly down on to his chest…
The black figure remained standing in silence after uttering his previous sentence. The big guy squatting on the ground was evidently a little confused at the situation. At that, he stood up and walked towards the black figure to understand the situation.
The moment he neared the entrance however, the black figure suddenly disappeared, as though what he’d seen earlier was just his imagination.
At the same time, a figure had long appeared behind the big guy’s back, squatting down and was carrying a girl while covering her mouth with his hands…
Yuan Yuan Yuan was literally going to die of a heart attack right now. She could smell the saturating stench of blood the moment she’d arrived, she’d initially thought that someone had definitely died here. It was only when the big guy turned around did she realise that there was a girl hiding in the depths of the alley. The girl was trembling, perhaps from the cold or perhaps in fear.
Yuan Yuan Yuan noticed the Fourth High school uniform the girl had on. At that, she immediately exhaled in relief, before she rushed over and lifted the person shrinking into the corner. As she did, she covered the girl’s mouth so that she wouldn’t scream.
As for the pool of blood and other gory materials that she couldn’t make out… Yuan Yuan Yuan had no idea who the unlucky chap was.
Yuan Yuan Yuan carried the girl and decided to make a leave. Unfortunately lady luck was not on her side tonight. Though the big guy seemed a little dense, it was still very sentitive to his surroundings. When he noticed that the black figure before him disappeared, he immediately turned around and howled at the figure behind him, coming face to face with Yuan Yuan Yuan that had been intending to make a flight for it after rescuing Xiao Ying.
The big guy growled at Yuan Yuan Yuan before it started running at her. When she realised that there was no escape, Yuan Yuan Yuan’s instantly activated her demon powers.
Several crimson willow-like strips zipped out from beneath her windbreaker, each and every strip long and sturdy. As though tentacles, her willow-like strips clung onto the ground, before it flung her body upwards. With the momentum, Yuan Yuan Yuan and Xiao Ying shot into the air.
The black figure made a 180-degree turn in midair, legs spinning before landing steadily on the ground, clipping his legs around the big guy’s neck.
Tightly after, a snow-white blade dug downwards, straight into the big guy’s head.
“Ahhh-!” At the sight, Xiao Ying, while protected in Yuan Yuan Yuan’s embrace, couldn’t help but shriek. Yuan Yuan Yuan didn’t have any free hands to cover her mouth, so she could only hug the little girl tighter.
As Yuan Yuan Yuan listened to Xiao Ying’s reveberating scream, she clenched her teeth. Her hand pulled upwards and the dagger unlatched itself, before she dashed out the alley, no longer giving any damns about whatever she left behind.
She had no idea what happened to the big guy after her dagger, Yuan Yuan Yuan didn’t dare to look back either. She could only carry Xiao Ying in her arms as she zipped through the alleys and streets, as she did, she tried her best to surpress her demon scent that was spilling out from her body.
The rain was very heavy, and the route they took was very long, as though endless. Yuan Yuan Yuan had no idea how long she’d ran for, nor how many turns she’d made, all she knew was that her head was spinning.
She could only run… keep running…
