Not wanting to be left behind, Xu Yan could only follow Ah Jin and set off.
Along the way, Zhang Ming once again asked, "What happened to your son? You have not finished yet?"
Xu Yan chuckled in self-mockery.
Her eyes were red again.
"There was no money in the early stage. Without it, there was no effective treatment for him. The virus has spread. The doctor said that at least three months, and at most six months."
Xu Yan’s tears fell.
This time she did not cry loudly, but she just cried silently.
Unfortunately, nobody sympathized with her.
Zhang Ming said, "You really can't live with the consequences of your own sin."
"What do you know! A person like you who lives in a greenhouse cannot possibly understand. My despair, my pain! All of you don't understand! Do you think I want to do this?! I also have no choice. There is no way out ah!"
Xu Yan fiercely looked at Zhang Ming.
"I would go to hell if I could save my son! What's the point of hurting people? You can only be blamed for being too greedy! Too ignorant! Don't criticize me from a moral high ground! Do you think you're better than me?
"Why didn't you disagree when Hai arrested Zhou Yi? You thought it was okay to stand neutral? That you could pretend you didn't do it by being silent?! In the end, we are just the same kind of people!"
Zhang Ming was dumbfounded.
Yes, the truth was that he was not qualified to say anything about others.
When Hai caught Zhou Yi and wanted to threaten her teammates to hand over the flag, he did not dare to offend Hai.
So he could only choose to be silent, being a bystander who covered his ears.
Ah Jin listened to the two of them arguing, her attention straight ahead into the darkness.
The fire in her hand dispersed a little darkness with every step she took.
The darkness behind her would follow with each step she took.
In the passage, her flat voice echoed, "The happiness all over the world is more or less the same, whereas the misfortunes are different in their own way. Since you chose that, then keep going. Even if it is a hell ahead, you should not blame anyone. This is all your own choice."
Xu Yan smiled bitterly, "If it were you, would you do the same?"
"There is no if, and I am not you."
Xu Yan listened to Ah Jin's calm and firm voice.
That woman did not show how powerful she was, but Zhang Ming was willing to follow her.
Even the silent Thirteen would listen to her.
Xu Yan had a moment of confusion.
Could she really be wrong?
That thought flashed by.
She then discarded the idea.
She could not go back.
Just like Qiao Jin said, since she chose it, she could not regret it.
Compared to the effortless way of Zhou Yi’s and the various bitter drama on Ah Jin's side, Thirteen's side was much more miserable.
Not to mention the number of people was the least, but the path was also not safe.
All kinds of venomous snakes incessantly attacked.
Fortunately, Thirteen, and the big man of the mercenary, was skilled.
Both of them dealt with it quite efficiently.
The big man was rather curious about Thirteen.
"Mr. Thirteen, is that Chinese kung fu you are doing?"
Although he was a foreigner, Thirteen remained silent.
"Wow, then you are really great. I grew up enjoying Chinese kung fu very much. Do you know Bruce Lee? He was in the movies, Ah Da~."
He said and struck a classic pose of Bruce Lee.
Thirteen nodded, "I know."
The big man got more excited.
"Then can you teach me kung fu? I want to learn too."
"Later, if you have the chance."
Obviously determined, the big man continued to ask, "Where did you learn it? Does everyone in your country know it?"
"When did you start learning? Do all of you learn kung fu from a young age?"
"Mr. Thirteen, you are too cold. Can we be friends?"
Well, this time, Thirteen didn't answer at all.
Without a reply, the big man also felt a little embarrassed.
The scene was cold for a while.
There was only the sound of their footsteps and their shadows swaying on the wall in the quiet path.
After walking at some distance, another snake came out to attack.
Both of them quickly dodged by jumping.
The snake landed in the midst of the two.
It rushed towards Thirteen, spitting serpentine signals and looking for a gap, ready to launch an attack at any time.
The big man who was watching the standoff between the snake and Thirteen mentally calculated the time.
That Chinese man was highly skilled, and the snake would be taken out in the next round.
If he couldn't seize the opportunity this time, it would be more challenging next time.
After he made up his mind, he paid close attention to the snake's movements and slowly approached it.
His hands behind his back and took a stance like he was going to attack it.
When Thirteen noticed the big man's movements, he slowly adjusted his angle. He guided the snake's attention all over him, looking for an opportunity that would allow the big man to kill the snake.
Even though the snake's attention was on Thirteen, it did not ignore the danger behind it.
When the big man was close to it, the snake suddenly turned its head in the direction of the big man and went out with a "whoosh,” springing up in a flash, opening its mouth and revealing its white fangs.
The man, although physically large, his reaction was not slow at all.
He deftly dodged and avoided the snake's attack.
The snake immediately retreated after its attack failed.
It curled its body and kept swaying its head, looking for the next opportunity to attack.
Since that one attack, the snake had changed the dangerous situation, being caught between the front and back, forming a triangular standoff with the two.
The two took advantage of the gap just after the snake launched an attack and quickly approached the snake together.
To escape, the snake must attack one of them and make an opening.
Right now, the snake detected a smell from the big man that made him so disgusting.
The smell made it instinctively want to stay away from.
So it arched its body and launched a violent attack at Thirteen.
Just as soon as the snake launched, the big man also moved.
He pulled out a gun and shot.
Not at the snake, but the target was Thirteen.
Thirteen threw out the knife in his right hand when the snake attacked, while the machete in his left hand was placed in front of his chest.
The bullet hit the surface of the machete with a "dang" sound, and it was deflected to the wall.
The surface of the machete got dented.
Thankfully, the pistol he took was not very powerful and should only be used to fight snakes.
Otherwise, he would have fallen down now.
The snake had already been planted on the ground by the knife and was completely lifeless.
Thirteen did not give the big man the time to react and immediately threw the machete in his hand, close to the big man.
He kicked in the air, but the big man hurriedly crossed his arms over his head for defense.
But the power of his leg made the big man retreat a few steps backward, that the gun in his hand also fell off to the ground.
The first blow did not work.
Thirteen clenched his fist and punched the man in the abdomen.
The man then also reacted and met Thirteen's punches and fought with him. Every move was lethal.
The two of them fought back and forth, and the only sacrifice was the snake lying on the ground, which was already a corpse.
