The Entire City Is My Husband - Chapter 3.3
In the next second, the entire roof had been ripped off its hinges and lifted up with bare hands! The way the Guardian ripped it off made it seem like it had been nothing but a tin can he had destroyed.
Instead of gray towering over their heads, they saw the bright blue sky above them. Standing on the pitiful remains of the roof was Guardian X. The wind blew against him, strong enough to make the silver coat on his shoulders fly up, flapping uncontrollably. It felt as if the entire azure sky was standing behind him as he lifted the gun in his hands with both hands and aimed at all the Xie Shiyus on the bus.
Chu Feng couldn’t bite back a curse.
That bastard actually chose to open fire!
Unfortunately, the black tape stopped his mouth from making a sound.
Even if the bullet hadn’t been aimed at him, Chu Feng felt like he was the one getting shot at.
—But it hadn’t been the Guardian’s gun.
The gunshot came from Xie Shiyu’s gun.
Tyrant Xie Shiyu hid behind the cover and shot before anyone could.
More gunshots followed soon after, muzzles aimed at the unwelcome intruder.
Chu Feng’s pounding heartbeat calmed.
But when he turned to look at the Guardian, he found that everything became a flash. He was moving too fast for the human eye.
All the bullets aimed at him whooshed past and disappeared into the blue sky behind.
Holy shit!! Lin Lan cursed for the second time, his entire body trembling.
How is he dodging the bullets?!
He appeared again after all the bullets were gone and began his counterattack.
The bullets that shot out glinted under the sunlight, blinding him.
Chu Feng bit his lips as he watched, his eyes bloodshot.
One by one, the cruel bullets of fate quickly hit their target on all the Xie Shiyus hiding in the bus.
All of them landed true.
All the Xie Shiyus he loved instantly fell lifelessly onto the ground.
X brought the gun to his mouth and blew the emitting smoke away before putting it back down.
Chu Feng’s hands were clenched tightly. He wanted nothing more than to bang the Guardian’s head against a wall!
There was only one more insurance that would ensure the safety of his Xie Shiyus now.
The system in X’s ear popped up with a warning.
[We have detected that the player has spent more than 5,600,000 dollars in the game, the program “Dream City Immunity” has been automatically activated.]
Everything within a Dream City was considered personal property, including the character within them.
When the amount of money a player has spent in the game was more than a Guardian’s pay, the Guardian would be unable to bring harm to the player’s Dream City, which includes the characters.
[Your bullets have been changed into bullets of frost.]
In the next second, Chu Feng watched all the Xie Shiyus on the ground turning into ice sculptures.
Bullets of frost— capable of freezing a character. Once everything was done, the guardian’s signature would be able to defrost them.
Seeing that the Xie Shiyus were all still alive, the insanity in Chu Feng’s eyes quickly dissipated.
When he came to, he felt Lin Lan frantically pulling at his sleeve.
There’s no more driver!
The Xie Shiyu that was driving the bus had also frozen, and the car’s speed was gradually decreasing…
If the car goes below 50, the bomb would go off.
A metal rope latched onto the steering wheel and it snapped back into place like a rubber band being stretched. The Guardian jumped off the roof and shot towards the driver’s seat.
His feet fluidly connected with the Xie Shiyu still frozen on the seat and coldly kicked him aside.
Victim Chu Feng frowned in displeasure.
X slammed down on the accelerator and sped the car up to 59 before getting back up and grabbing Lin Lan like he was a small chick. He quickly cut open the ropes on his hands together and said, “Drive.”
Lin Lan stood there, trembling for a few seconds, before plopping down on the driver’s seat and driving diligently.
Time remaining: 2 minutes 45 seconds
He had managed to get rid of all the kidnappers within 5 short seconds.
X walked towards the little beauty that was still tied up.
He didn’t know why, but he had a sense that he was furious right now.
—But that must be his mind playing tricks on him.
From previous experiences, the player should be regarding him as a god right about now. They should be hugging his thigh, crying, and bawling for help. Because of their unstable emotions caused by intense shock, they would surge forward and latch onto him, making him waste precious time calming them down, delaying him from saving them.
Maybe the little beauty will react just like everyone else had.
—After all, he had never stopped crying ever since the video call.
As his mind supplied him with images of the little beauty acting like the rest of the players— hugging his thigh and bawling, tears sliding down his face as he shrank into his embrace, begging to be protected…
X felt oddly warm with that thought.
Chu Feng regarded the Guardian coldly as he stalked closer toward him.
Currently, his goodwill bar for this man was reaching a new low.
Not only did he open fire on his man the second he appeared, he even had the face to kick his Xiao Xie!
Chu Feng was practically fuming in his seat.
“Please don’t worry, sir.” The Guardian said in a soothing voice once he was close enough, “The bomb will be defused soon.”
He even added, “My average time for defusing bombs is 15 seconds.”
Chu Feng scoffed internally.
Wow, aren’t you so cool?
What he didn’t understand was why that bastard decided to stay put on the roof for so long.
Maybe 4 minutes was too much time in his eyes.
The Guardian reached over, cut the rope on his hand, and ripped the black tape off his mouth.
Chu Feng rubbed his aching wrists.
X adjusted his position slightly. Most players would rush into his embrace and start bawling once they were saved.
—He was waiting for his damsel in distress to do the same.
After what seemed to be an eternity…
Chu Feng remained in his seat, calmly and coolly, even eyeing him slightly with his nose in the air, as if asking,
The hell are you looking at? Aren’t you here to defuse the bomb?
X coughed a little in an attempt to mask his embarrassment.
He pointed at the two seats connected to each other and said, “Can you please lie down slowly?”
Chu Feng did as he was told.
The timer ticked from the front of his body, vibrating against his bones.
Time remaining: 2 minutes 30 seconds
Chu Feng thought the Guardian would take out professional equipment used to defuse bombs and start defusing…
But before he could react, the Guardian pressed his knee next to him, his entire body tilting before… He leaned onto him???
Chu Feng’s entire body tensed up.
The Guardian supported his weight with one hand placed next to his head while the other hand was used to take the case off the bomb.
—He’s defusing the bomb with one hand?
Chu Feng was stunned.
But, isn’t this position a little…
The bastard was pretty tall, probably around 190cm at least and Chu Feng was only 180cm. Chu Feng was pressed against the hard seat biting into his back and felt threatened. It was almost as if he was still having his roleplay with Xie Shiyu and was being pressed down in a different context…
Chu Feng felt a little guilty that he was thinking about Xie Shiyu when another man was on top of him, so he turned his face away rigidly, asking, “Do you have to defuse it like this?”
“Some bombs contain components filled with mercury. By lying flat like this, it can prevent the bomb from going off from excessive use of strength.”
The Guardian on top of him asked with all the professionalism someone could have, “Is there a problem with how I am defusing this?”
Chu Feng thought he was spewing nothing but bullshit!
“Can I ask you to hold onto the bottom of the bomb?”
The Guardian asked Chu Feng from above him with a straight face, his silver coat fell over Chu Feng’s thighs, covering them.
Chu Feng imagined himself rolling his eyes as he did as he was told albeit impatiently.
“You’re holding it wrong,” The Guardian patiently corrected his mistakes, “You should make sure to hold the center of it. That way it’ll stop the bomb from exploding because the components in the bomb are mixed up.”
After saying that, Chu Feng felt the Guardian’s hands wrapping around his own, guiding his fingers to the correct position.
Chu Feng always hated being touched by anyone that wasn’t Xie Shiyu, so his first instinct was to rip his hands away from contact, but…
“This isn’t a joking matter. There are lives at stake here, yours and mine.”
The Guardian warned him firmly.
Chu Feng froze.
The blood-red timer blinked as the amount of time they had left decreased second by second.
In the end, Chu Feng relaxed the muscles in his hand and let him do whatever he wanted.
Guardian X held the beauty’s hand in his own.
They were a beautiful pair of hands. His wrist was pale, while his fingers were long and thin, their tips a little colder than the rest of the hand.
When X first felt the skin against his own, he felt as if he was being electrocuted, a vision flashed past his mind…
It was like a shooting star— too fast— too far to catch. It disappeared just as quickly as it had appeared, with only desire remaining in its place.
His hand was so smooth.
—I want to touch it.
