How Can My Wife Be So Adorable Chapter 4 – Evading Pursuit

She was seen biting her lip, tears streaming down her face, her delicate features contorted with anger. Approaching He Yu with her petite stature, she mustered all her strength and shouted at the top of her lungs, “You’re the real trash!” Her sharp voice echoed throughout the hall, leaving everyone present dumbfounded.

A smile appeared on Chen Xing’s face, as he had thought that Zero, with her personality, would silently endure such mistreatment.

Unexpectedly, she had the courage to fight back. It was quite satisfying, considering He Yu had gone too far. Although Zero had been repeatedly abandoned, her previous Spirit Masters had shown some decency, ending the contracts amicably. He Yu’s behavior was the most extreme, a first of its kind. Even Zero couldn’t tolerate it.

He Yu stood frozen in place, momentarily stunned by her scolding, before his facial muscles twitched uncontrollably with anger. Inner thoughts raced through his mind, ‘Did I just get scolded by a worthless person?’

“You damnable…” He Yu raised his hand, his veins bulging, about to deliver a harsh slap towards Zero’s face.

Fearfully, Zero closed her eyes, instinctively lowering her head.

“Bang!”

Suddenly, the sound of something shattering echoed through the hall, just before his filthy hand could make contact with Zero’s face. Chen Xing swiftly stood by Zero’s side, intercepting He Yu’s slap. No one noticed how he had moved there!

The front desk was more than ten meters away from this spot. He had reached there in an instant.

The woman beside He Yu stared in astonishment at the place where Chen Xing had been standing before. The floor tiles at that spot had already cracked and caved in. That was the force Chen Xing had instantly unleashed, shattering the ground!

The sound of the collision earlier was the result of Chen Xing exerting force against the ground. Looking down at Chen Xing’s feet, they were also trapped in the broken tiles. He had used it as a braking mechanism; otherwise, he would have shot out uncontrollably, which would have been embarrassing.

This completely subverted the front desk woman’s understanding. She couldn’t help but doubt the results of the previous machine’s detection. How could this young man be so powerful if he wasn’t a Spirit Master?

Zero slowly opened her eyes, surprised, and lifted her head, looking at Chen Xing’s profile.

While He Yu was astonished, he continuously tried to free his hand. However, his wrist was tightly grasped by Chen Xing, motionless!

It was the crushing power of strength.

Chen Xing remained expressionless, flipped his wrist, and raised his elbow.

“Crack.” He Yu’s bones suddenly made a loud cracking sound. The next moment, Chen Xing released his hand.

“Ah!!!” He Yu instantly screamed in agony. His facial expression twisted into a gruesome grimace. With his other hand, he tightly held the arm that Chen Xing had just grabbed. The pain was so intense that he dropped to his knees. Chen Xing had directly snapped his arm with a single motion!

“He Yu!” The woman rushed to kneel down and support his injured arm. “What’s wrong with you?”

“Ah! Don’t touch me!” He Yu shouted in pain, scaring the woman into letting go of him.

Seeing He Yu in such a state, Zero no longer felt any sympathy for him. However, she wouldn’t mock him either, as that would be no different from He Yu’s behavior.

Then, she looked up at Chen Xing. Chen Xing’s peripheral vision caught her gaze, and he also looked at her. Once again, their eyes met.

Zero’s gaze was gentle yet strong.

Chen Xing’s gaze… well, it was incomprehensible.

Just as they were deeply engrossed in each other’s eyes, Chen Xing suddenly heard unusual footsteps. The footsteps were steady and fast.

Clearly the steps of trained experts. Judging from the footsteps, there were at least twenty people. And all of them were skilled!

“Ah!” Zero exclaimed in surprise. Because Chen Xing directly lifted her petite body in his arms.

Princess carry!

With Zero in his arms, Chen Xing swiftly moved and headed straight for the exit. This time, the automatic doors couldn’t react in time. So Chen Xing turned his back in mid-air while moving forward, using his own body to shatter the automatic doors. Protecting Zero from harm.

In the next moment, they disappeared into the pouring rain.

His departure was the right choice. The security team consisted of C-level Spirit Masters. Each one of them had Spirit Beasts!

With Chen Xing’s current strength, it would be futile to face more than twenty C-level Spirit Masters. After all, he had just transmigrated not long ago.

As for He Yu’s fate, he could be dealt with tomorrow. There was no hurry. Chen Xing didn’t want Zero to witness it today. He thought Zero was still a child and couldn’t handle the bloody scene. However, once Chen Xing targeted someone, they couldn’t escape. He would not rest until his target was dead!

It was a fundamental quality of an assassin.

“Pata… pata…” Chen Xing stepped on the splashes of water, carrying the delicate Zero as they ran wildly in this rainy night.

Zero hid in his arms, with wide-eyes and pursed lips, afraid to take a breath. Her heart was pounding. Under the dim streetlight, she secretly glanced at Chen Xing.

“Is there another place… a safe zone or a neutral zone?” Chen Xing looked down and noticed that Zero was looking at him.

When their eyes met, Zero’s heart skipped a beat. In this cold rainy night, her pretty face quickly warmed up. She hurriedly turned her head away, afraid to look at Chen Xing again. “Well… if you go left for one and half mile, there’s one, but…”

“But what?”

“But it’s an A-Grade Safe Zone, probably more expensive than the one before…”

“How much for a night?”

“I don’t know… I haven’t been there either, maybe double the price…”

“Okay.”

Then Chen Xing lifted his head and ran with all his might. Zero thought about the embarrassing situation Chen Xing was in earlier when he had no money and was looked down upon.

She hesitated and said, “Um… I don’t have any money either.”

“It’s okay, I have some.”

“…”

Chen Xing didn’t have any money earlier, and now he suddenly claimed to have some. Anyone would find it hard to believe.

However, for some reason, Zero was willing to believe in Chen Xing. She suddenly had an impulse to follow him wherever he went, no matter what!

Strangely, even though it was only one and a half mile this time, Chen Xing ran much longer than the previous three miles. He was taking detours. Because there were a dozen people following behind him!

Zero was puzzled as to why Chen Xing kept making turns. She thought it might be because of the heavy rain causing them to get lost, and she was about to speak up.

But Chen Xing interrupted her, “Shh… don’t speak, we’re being followed.”

Zero was frightened and quickly closed her mouth, nodding in his arms like a little chick pecking at millet. Chen Xing continued to sprint, and with his speed, even those C-Spirit Masters could only barely keep up.

One of the Spirit Master asked, “What’s the situation with that person ahead?”

“At this speed, they must be one of the top-ranked in the C list.”

In this world, the Spirit Rankings were divided into SSS, SS, S, A, B, C, D, and F.

“But where is the person?”

Suddenly, Chen Xing disappeared. As if he vanished into thin air.

The dozen or so C-level Spirit Masters stopped in their tracks and looked around. There were no traces left by Chen Xing’s escape.

“Where is he?”

“He managed to escape?”

“It seems he’s skilled at evading pursuit.”

“Forget it, let’s go.”

In the darkness, Zero stared with her bright eyes, using the moonlight filtering through the gaps in the grass to observe Chen Xing, who was just within reach.

He lay down in the bushes, holding Zero in his arms. He gently covered her mouth with his hand, preventing her from making any sound.

“Fuu…” A faint breath escaped from Zero’s petite and delicate nose. She dared not speak, her heart pounding like it was about to burst out of her chest.

However, when she saw Chen Xing’s indifferent gaze, she instantly felt a chill run down her spine.

Inner thoughts: Why does he… have such eyes now?

At this moment, Zero was backlit, so from Chen Xing’s perspective, all he saw was a dark face, unable to see anything clearly. Naturally, he resumed his cold and indifferent expression.

For who knows how long, Zero remained quietly nestled in Chen Xing’s embrace. Chen Xing treated her like a child, so he didn’t pay too much attention.

“Swoosh~” Chen Xing emerged from the bushes, still carrying Zero.

The moment they touched the ground, they swiftly darted off again.

“We’re here.” Chen Xing could already see the sign from a distance.

“Four Seasons Bay, A-grade Safe Zone.”

Chen Xing stood at the entrance of the hotel with Zero in his arms.

The door opened with a “swish.”

But instead of entering, Chen Xing remained in place and closed his eyes. He silently tried to feel if anyone was following them.

“Hello, welcome…” As soon as the front desk attendant saw them, she immediately approached.

At the first glance, she felt that something was off about Chen Xing and Zero.

But out of professional courtesy, she politely asked, “May I assist you with anything?”
