As they got closer and closer to Zhou Yi's area, the traces of destruction around them became more apparent.
Thirteen squatted on the ground and looked at the messy footsteps.
The broken branches and leaves were scattered all around.
"There are other people."
Ah Jin gazed at a particular place.
"We will know if we go and see. Maybe we can catch a big fish."
Shortly after the duo went ahead, they saw the second team.
There were two men and one woman from the second team.
They were all wearing dark blue camouflage uniforms.
A skinny man, looking cautious and scared, his eyes constantly scanned the surroundings.
It was evident that they should be terrified of snakes.
The woman looked like she was in her thirties.
She no longer had fair and youthful skin.
Her brows were slightly downcast.
She was looking at the last man uneasily.
That last man had a big build, scarred face, and vicious features.
In a TV show, he could be the bad guy's face.
He was pulling a rope in his hand.
The rope was made of vines hanging from the trees, with green moss on the surface.
A person was tied to the other end of the rope.
This person was the one they were looking for, Zhou Yi.
The fierce-looking man saw Ah Jin came to them and flashed them a grin.
The scars were more hideous because of his smile.
Thirteen was not good at negotiation, so Ah Jin stepped forward to strike up a conversation, "Hello."
Zhou Yi caught sight of them both with a hopeful look in her eyes.
The scarred man did not babble, "Give me the red flag. In return, the person will be returned to you."
Ah Jin scornfully glanced at Zhou Yi.
"Such a useless person. It would be better for you to take her away so as not to drag our feet."
Zhou Yi's eyes widened in disbelief.
The scarred man pulled the rope, Zhou Yi was dragged down to the ground.
"Not this trick. You guys won't come back for her if she's useless!"
"Don't misunderstand. We just came out to look for food and stopped by to see. Since you guys like her, I'll give her to you. Thirteen, let's go."
Ah Jin then turned around to leave.
Although Thirteen did not know what Ah Jin was thinking, he followed her with great cooperation.
Zhou Yi shouted behind her, "Why, why ah! Qiao Jin, Thirteen, you guys come back!"
The scarred man watched the duo had started to walk away and kicked Zhou Yi aside.
"What a waste. This is how I said it would be so easy to catch."
Zhou Yi was kicked to the ground, and she curled up in pain.
Thirteen, who had walked away, asked, "Don't you want to rescue?"
"Too lazy. If you want to save her, you can go yourself."
"I thought you had some kind of plan."
Ah Jin felt amused.
"The guys can't even beat you. Why do I need to have a plan."
Ah Jin halted and turned to look at him.
"Do you really think that Zhou Yi is innocent and harmless?"
Thirteen also halted.
"I don't know."
"Then, as luck would have it, let's try to test her through this incident."
"What if she’s innocent?"
"Well, we’ll save her."
Thirteen no longer spoke, sort of tacitly agreeing with Ah Jin's action.
On the other side, a woman spoke to the scarred man, "What now? Should we take this woman with us?"
"Of course not. She is not part of our team."
The skinny man remarked, "What if it's just an act of bitterness? Aren’t we taking her with us as a spy?"
