Addicted: Book Two – Chapter 62

A Spine-Tingling Escape

Translate: Sae | Proofread: Julieta

Just as the two bodyguards arrived, they saw a scene that made them want to spew blood.

As expected, those thirty plus people accomplished their mission, with the numbers at their advantage that is. However, the problem now was—not only did they captured Gu Hai but Tong Zhe had also been implicated. The second they saw the rough fist connected with Tong Zhe’s stomach, the two bodyguards’ face was redesigned to a pale palette.

Fuck, they actually made a big mistake! They quickly rushed over while shouting at the top of their lungs: “Don’t hit him, don’t hit him. He’s one of us!!”

Just as Tong Zhe collapsed on Gu Hai, and had yet to stand firmly, he saw the two bodyguards bolting over.

“Vice President, I’m sorry. I gave you the wrong direction earlier.”

It didn’t take long for Tong Zhe’s face to change from pure green to deathly white once he processed those words. Such an unnecessary mistake had inadvertently caused that wretched pain to twist his muscles, and it was only the adrenaline that coursed through his veins which made it possible for him to plant his foot on the ground.

The other bodyguard faced those people and cursed in rage at them. “What were you guys looking at, huh? This is our Vice President. You guys just started fighting without asking clearly?!” Once he finished, he turned to look at Tong Zhe and instantly softened his voice. “Vice President, you must be startled.”

Tong Zhe hesitantly replied, “…it’s alright.”

The bodyguard turned to face those people again, “What are you guys standing there for? Quickly arrest the target! Are you all fucking happy? You struck the person you shouldn’t have while the person you should’ve is still standing there unscathed. What kind of bullshit is this?!”

As those angry words filtered the air, the group of people encircled them again. But Gu Hai suddenly pulled out a gun from his jacket and pointed the muzzle directly at Tong Zhe’s temple.

“Don’t come any closer!”

He really knows how to take advantage of the opportunity…Tong Zhe could not help but admire Gu Hai.

“Retreat, retreat…” the bodyguard said as he stared tenaciously at Gu Hai’s finger as he incessantly ordered the people surrounding them. “Human life is beyond value. There’s no need for anyone to act recklessly!”

Gu Hai was apoplectic with rage as he screamed, “Draw back 30 meters, hurry up!!”

As those people drew back, Gu Hai also pulled Tong Zhe slowly toward the back while carefully keeping an eye out at his surrounding as to avoid a surprise attack.

When they reached the head of the stairs, the group of people’s footsteps abruptly came to a stop. But the second Gu Hai turned, they immediately charged toward them. Seeing that, Gu Hai suddenly opened fire, causing the entire airport lobby to sink into chaos. Once the masses started to frantically flee in all directions, that decidedly created the perfect opportunity for Gu Hai and Tong Zhe to make their getaway.

“Over here, over here!” Tong Zhe shouted out to Gu Hai.

Bypassing one lobby after another while keeping their eyes out for an exit, they suddenly saw a group of suspicious people appear ahead of them.

Gu Hai came to a sudden halt, look around and saw a changing room at the side. Without saying anything, he tilted his head to the side and signaled to Tong Zhe that he should enter.

To their misfortune, all the stalls was occupied. Not to be deterred, they quickly noticed that the top of the stalls was not covered. With great agility, Gu Hai and Tong Zhe leaped up to grab the edge of the stall and climbed inside. But the second they dropped in, loud shrieks blared from both stalls.

Holy shit! Tong Zhe felt stupid the moment his foot touched the ground. Gu Hai, what the hell is wrong with your eyes? You actually led me into the womens changing room!

As expected, the horrified woman screamed bloody murder at Tong Zhe, afraid he would take advantage of her.

Tong Zhe quickly covered her mouth with his hand and gave her a cold and stern look.

“Give me the clothes that you had changed out of! If not, I’ll strangle you to death!”

Trying to control her trembling hands, the mortified woman reached down to grab the skirt and high heels that she had taken off and passed them to Tong Zhe.

After Tong Zhe took the clothes, he was completely mortified.

In the other stall, Gu Hai was in no better condition than Tong Zhe. That build of his was truly too formidable—one look was more than enough to tell how defined and sturdy his muscles were. Try as he might, he wouldn’t be able to put the skirt on. And even if he could, it would be worn as a shirt at most.  Just as he became frantic, a bright idea suddenly waltzed into his brain. He draped the skirt over his shoulder, wrapped two rolls worth of toilet paper around his waist, fastened two pairs of pantyhose around his ears and leaped into the adjoining stall.

It goes without saying, Tong Zhe was completely taken aback by Gu Hai’s sudden entrance.

“You…what the heck are you doing?”

“Shhh…I thought of a trick.” Gu Hai’s lips moved in close to Tong Zhe’s ear and informed him of his scheme.

Hearing it, Tong Zhe revealed a despicable expression. “Does it have to be that stupid?”

“Can you think of a better way than that?” Gu Hai asked.

The corner of Tong Zhe’s lips pulled back, “My IQ isn’t as high as yours.”

Gu Hai scrutinized Tong Zhe for a moment, feeling as if something was missing. Soon, he figured it out—his chest was flat. As a result, he removed the pantyhose from his ears and passed them to Tong Zhe. “Stuff them against your chest!”

The level of annoyance that rose in Tong Zhe nearly caused him to see stars, “How come you’re not stuffing it?”

“I’m not the one pretending to be a woman.” Gu Hai said, unintentionally adopting the air of an ‘armchair expert’.129

Although Tong Zhe’s expression went frozen for a moment, he still took the two pantyhose. After knotting them a few times, he unwillingly shoved them into his shirt until they formed a fake set of breasts. To make matters worse—when Gu Hai reached over to adjust the position of his fake breast, Tong Zhe had a moment of wanting to die.

Once their preparation was complete, Gu Hai and Tong Zhe calmly walked out of the dressing room.

The entire airport lobby was masked by a frightening atmosphere when two silhouettes turned up in front of a security’s line of sight.

Tong Zhe had on women’s clothes and held a purse in his hand as he walked ahead. Suddenly, a psychotic madman charged toward him from behind and yanked his skirt. Tong Zhe let out the two best sharp shrieks he could conjure while Gu Hai continuously yanked. He yanked and yanked until Tong Zhe had no other choice but to scream for help.

Two security guards ran over and asked, “What’s going on?”

Tong Zhe lowered his head and tearfully complained in a low voice, “This hoodlum keeps on pulling me!”

The two security guards glanced at Gu Hai only to see him still holding on to Tong Zhe, rubbing up against his legs without stopping, and no matter how much he was being cursed at, he refused to let go. Once they took notice of Gu Hai’s attire, they instantly comprehended what was wrong with him without being told explicitly.

One of the guards whispered in the other’s ear, “How did this kind of person get in here?”

“Who knows! Just hurry up and kick him out!”

After the two talked it over, they hauled Gu Hai toward the exit. But just as they arrived at the door, they were blocked by two black-suited men who were guarding the area. “Who is that?”

“Just a troublemaker with a bit of a problem.” The guard explained, pointing to his head.

Just as the two men were about to crouch down to look at his face, Gu Hai suddenly took out his son, pressed the power switch on and started to hum along with the rhythm. “Ge wasn’t causing trouble…Ge only came here to find a young lady…”

Hearing that, the security guard kicked Gu Hai out. “Fuck your sister!”

As a result, Gu Hai ended up dropping one of his shoes. But, without bothering to pick it up, Gu Hai hared off with great speed.

An airport janitor was on the verge of tossing the shoe in the trash bin when another man in a suit walked over, looked at her and reached for it. “I’m sorry, that’s mine. I dropped it earlier.”

The moment the man got the shoe and took one glance at it, his complexion instantly rebelled. “Fucking piece of shit! We actually let him get away!”

Unable to grasp what he meant, the man next to him asked, “Let who get away?”

BAM! That unfortunate shoe was then smashed to the ground.  “Take a fucking good look at it yourself! What idiot would wear shoes that cost more than 10,000 yuan?”130

“Ah? … quickly, go after him!!!”

Gu Hai was about to take off his ‘costume’ when he heard Tong Zhe loud shout from not too far away. “Gu Hai, hurry up and get in the car!”

Upon hearing countless footsteps coming from behind him, Gu Hai’s nerves couldn’t help but to tense up of its own accord. Knowing of his dire situation—his long, spirited legs dashed toward the side of Tong Zhe’s car before he then practically leaped into the passenger seat. The car door had yet to be closed when Tong Zhe revved up the engine and drove off.

“Chase after them! Don’t let them get away!!”

In just seconds, a grandiose fleet of cars followed closely behind them.

On the road, Tong Zhe drove adeptly while simultaneously tearing away his ‘feminine’ clothes. With only one hand controlling the steering wheel, he was able to quickly lose the line of cars chasing them—unwittingly displaying his exquisite driving skills.

“I’ve never been so humiliated in my life.” Tong Zhe said, throwing the clothes he had taken off out of the window.

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes, leaned back into the seat and wore an indiscernible smile.

“I wasn’t any better than you, having to rub against your legs so many times……”

“What do you mean?” Tong Zhe was incensed by those words, “I haven’t even said anything about you randomly rubbing my legs, yet you’re already acting as if you’ve been taken advantage of?”

Without speaking, Gu Hai simply laughed and hugged the little donkey in his hand. He silently thought: Yin Zi, dont be angry! I had no other choice. Ill properly compensate you when I get back…

Tong Zhe glanced at him from the corner of his eyes then shifted his gaze toward the donkey. Due to the exigent situation earlier, he did not have a chance to ask about it. But now that the situation had been placated for the time being, he could not help but speak up. “What significance does that donkey have for you to be holding on to it 24 hours a day?”

He had actually thought Gu Hai would say, ‘its a gift from deceased mother’ or ‘my first girlfriend gave it to me or something else of that nature. But what he didn’t anticipate was that Gu Hai would instead say, “This is my son.”

“You can be really funny.”

Tong Zhe turned to look at Gu Hai’s severely cold face then glimpsed back at the funny little donkey at his chest. It was hard for him to imagine what kind of ‘mother’ would pair her son with a donkey.

Not long after Gu Yang received the news of Gu Hai’s escape, he bustled toward Bai Luo Yin’s dorm—invoking innumerable gusts of gelid wind along the way.

When he arrived and noticed that the door was locked, Gu Yang didn’t put much thought to it and grabbed an army orderly who was passing by.

“Where’s Bai Luo Yin?”

The orderly blinked a couple of times, “Major Bai should be at the training ground, right? His battalion has been out doing battle drills for the past few days.”

Knowing that, Gu Yang’s face darkened again as he made his way to the training ground. While walking there, he gave a military officer that he knew a call, asking him to quickly dispatch a few people over.

He must capture Bai Luo Yin. Today.

Bai Luo Yin had just emerged from his fighter jet and was about to say something to his soldiers when his phone suddenly sounded.

“Yin Zi, I ran into a bit of a problem here.” Gu Hai’s distinctive voice flowed over.

The muscles in Bai Luo Yin’s hand tensed up, “What happened? Where are you now? I’ll fly the fighter jet over to get you!”

“I’m not exactly sure for the time being…”

While Gu Hai was still talking on the other side, Bai Luo Yin casually glanced at the side and saw a familiar figure tromping in his direction. Just one look at Gu Yang’s complexion, Bai Luo Yin could immediately sense that something had gone awry. He hurriedly turned to get on the steps into his fighter jet, but before he could, several of the soldiers beside Gu Yang abruptly sprint forward and forcefully dragged him. Sadly, Bai Luo Yin wasn’t able to evade them on time, one of his legs slipped not once but twice… Fortunately, his soldiers at the scene sped over to support him, otherwise, he would have fallen and face-planted on the ground.

“What are you guys doing?” Bai Luo Yin faced those soldiers and demanded an answer.

After all is said and done, he was still a Battalion Commander; those soldiers should not dare to annoyingly drag him repeatedly. If even something small were to happen to him, they certainly would not be able to bear the burden.

“Have you guys not eaten?” Gu Yang asked with a gloomy face, “Do you need the Regiment Commander Zhang to personally feed you a few bites?”131

The second they heard those two foreboding words, ‘Regiment Commander’, those soldiers filled with anxiety frantically went to grab Bai Luo Yin. But Bai Luo Yin’s own soldiers were not willing to stand aside and quickly went to protect their Major as if their lives depended on it. Unfortunately, they were facing the impossible. That is, being heavily outnumbered. Although, the soldiers that Bai Luo Yin had called out to train today were some of the best and most competent, albeit with less than ten of them, they were not enough to contend against the platoon that Gu Yang had gathered.
