“This is different.” Shen Hanxing shook her head, but she did not explain to Ji Qian what was different. The gentle night wind blew Shen Hanxing’s seaweed-like hair, and under the illumination of the lights on the highway, her body seemed to be covered in a layer of gentle light. She said, “You two be careful here. I’ll go over there and take a look.” The cars behind that crashed into her were involved in this accident because of her car, so it was reasonable that she wanted to go over and take a look.
“Why is Sister-in-law so good-looking?” Ji Qian couldn’t help but hold her chin as she looked at Shen Hanxing’s back. Her tone was filled with unspeakable pride and joy. “She looks so good even in her pajamas.”
“Yeah.” Zhuang Yu finished rinsing her mouth and mimicked Ji Qian’s posture as she squatted by the roadside and watched Shen Hanxing’s back as she walked further and further away. Zhuang Yu sighed, “If only I had a Sister-in-law like Mrs. Ji, or… If only I could become someone like Mrs. Ji one day.”
Ji Qian and Zhuang Yu looked at each other, their eyes flashing with desire and admiration. They were clearly a little older than Shen Hanxing, but in front of Shen Hanxing, they were naturally a generation lower, so they would become the juniors that she took care of. They hoped that one day they would grow into someone dependable and take care of Shen Hanxing in return.
On the other side, Shen Hanxing first went to check on the condition of a few cars. Fortunately, there were no major problems. The most severe injury was that someone’s leg was stuck in the gap between the airbag and the seat. With the help of the crowd, the person managed to escape with difficulty. The injured person sat by the roadside with the crowd and waited for the police to come and deal with the situation.
Seeing that the injured person was in good condition, Shen Hanxing turned around and walked to the front of the big truck. The big truck had already flipped over. However, the first thing the driver did was not climb out of the truck. Instead, he picked up a bottle of white wine that had been prepared by his side. After gulping down a few mouthfuls of strong white wine, he even smiled at Shen Hanxing when he saw her coming over. His mouth was full of yellow teeth, and the smell of alcohol was so strong it filled the air surrounding him.
It was obvious that this person had come prepared.
Shen Hanxing’s eyes darkened as she asked, “Who sent you to kill us?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” The truck driver leaned against the seat and said almost shamelessly, “What do you mean by killing? I’m drunk and don’t know what I’ve done.” After saying that, he even raised his eyes and looked at Shen Hanxing with a smile. He took the initiative to ask, “Beautiful lady, look at my truck. It’s quite dangerous too. Please pull me out. After all, as the old saying goes, saving a life is more meaningful and meritorious than doing good deeds for the dead.”
“Do you think you’re worthy of being counted as a human?” Shen Hanxing’s eyes were even colder as she shouted, “You almost killed me just now. Do you think I’ll save you?”
“I really don’t know what you’re talking about. No one would want something like this to happen.” The man’s smile became even wider. It was as if the alcohol had gotten to him, causing his face to turn red. He coughed a couple of times at the top of his voice, “I drank too much before, so I don’t remember a lot of things. Even if the police came, they would only be able to arrest me for drunk driving. Don’t talk nonsense.”
This person spoke very cautiously and carefully. It was obvious that he had been warned, or perhaps he was afraid that Shen Hanxing had some recording equipment on her, so he firmly refused to admit it.
“Do you think it’s enough that you don’t admit it?” Shen Hanxing stared at him and said, “The car’s dash cam and surveillance cameras around have recorded all your actions. No matter how you try to deny it, it’s a fact that you deliberately attempted to murder us. Besides, you’re not well-off, right?”
Shen Hanxing’s gaze swept past the man’s hand that was full of traces of time and the wine bottles that were scattered on the side. She sneered, “Drinking Maotai? Were you planning on drinking some good wine before you go? Unfortunately, you bought a fake one.” She could see the fake trademark on the wine bottle just by looking at it through the window.
“Nonsense! How could that person lie to me!” The man’s eyes flashed with anger. That’s right, he was paid to do things for others. Other than leaving the money for his wife and children, the most extravagant thing he did was to buy himself a bottle of Maotai. It was said that only rich people could drink this wine. He was about to die, and before he died, he wanted to have a taste of the wine that only rich people could drink.
After a short moment of anger, the man regained his composure once again. His eyes flickered as he said to Shen Hanxing and he said, “Young lady, I know I almost crashed into you. I’m really sorry, but please help me and pull me out. I also have elders and young kids to take care of… do you want to drink Maotai? I just bought a bottle of wine and wanted to go home for a drink after work. I really don’t know what you’re talking about.” He was still pretending to be pitiful. “In any case, I’m still a living person. I won’t forget your great kindness.”
