Apart from recalling that Sun Zhi had followed Jiang Chen, Shen Xu had no memory of other things.
After Jiang Chen questioned, he found out that Shen Xu had accidentally bumped into Huo Bo talking to Sun Zhi at that time, and he didn’t know the specifics.
Apart from remembering that Huo Bo said that Sun Zhi followed Jiang Chen several times, he didn’t even see what Sun Zhi looked like at that time. If Zhang Zhipeng hadn’t mentioned it this time, and Shen Xu had racked his brains to find the name Sun Zhi and everything related to the other, he would not recall this memory.
Also because of this memory, Shen Xu paid special attention to Sun Zhi’s movements. Not only did he specially find people in Sun Zhi’s class to keep an eye on him to know all his movements in school, but from that day on, he insisted on escorting Jiang Chen to school and after school. He would only go back to his own home after sending Jiang Chen back home, and if Jiang Chen’s competition class had late self-study or supplementary lessons, he would stay the night directly at Jiang Chen’s house.
Under Shen Xu’s strict defense, a week passed by in a flash, and it would soon be Saturday.
At noon that day, as soon as Jiang Chen came out of the cafeteria, he received a call from the hospital.
The nurse said that there was an issue with Jiang Zhuo’s preoperative physical examination, and they found his contact information because they couldn’t get in touch with Yang Si, the first contact person. They hoped he could go to the hospital to discuss the preoperative problem if he had time. Jiang Chen, after hanging up the phone, dialed Yang Si’s number several times, but none of the calls were answered. His eyes dimmed, and he went to the classroom teacher to approve the leave.
At this moment, Fu Jinyu was also in the office, he got up and said, “Why don’t I take you there.”
Although Jiang Chen was in a hurry, he also knew that Fu Jinyu had class in the afternoon: “No need, Teacher Fu, Yan No. 2 Hospital is not far from the school, and I can take a taxi when I go out. It will be quick.”
Fu Jinyu nodded: “Then be careful on the road, and call me or Teacher Li if you have any problems.”
Teacher Li also said: “Pay attention to safety, don’t shoulder things on your own, tell your teachers, we will find a way to help you solve it.”
Jiang Chen bowed slightly to the two, turned and left.
It was easy to exit the school with a leave slip. The bus stop was at the other end of the road. Jiang Chen looked up at the red light diagonally above, thinking about the authenticity of the phone call just now at this sensitive moment.
But whether it was true or not, he had to make the trip. Tomorrow was the operation. Any problems Jiang Zhuo had before the operation would have an impact. Moreover, Yang Si had never missed his calls before. Yet yhis time, no one answered the phone, something must have happened.
Thinking of Shen Xu saying that Sun Zhi sent frequent text messages in class yesterday, Jiang Chen’s eyes dimmed. Today’s phone call was very likely to have something to do with He Qianjian, but it was precisely because of this that he had to go to the hospital to make sure of his parents’ safety. With He Qianjian’s character, even if Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si were his biological parents, he might still hurt them in order to achieve his goal.
Therefore, even if he was ninety-nine percent sure that the phone call just now was fraudulent, he couldn’t gamble that one percent with his parents’ safety.
He lowered his eyes and unconsciously rubbed the buttons of the phone with his fingers, falling into a trance for a moment. If he really waited for that day and He Qianjian and him resumed their respective identities, how would his parents face them? What would the He family do?
While he was in a daze, someone pulled Jiang Chen’s elbow back, and several tall men covered his mouth and pulled him into an alley three meters away.
Jiang Chen came back to his senses in an instant. When the three of them walked into the alley and relaxed their guard momentarily, he gathered strength in his arms and broke free from the person on the left. He raised his legs and bent his knees to kick against the person’s abdomen with 100% of his strength. In an instant, when the others didn’t even see clearly what he had done, the man on the left had already fallen back, curled up on the ground with his hands on his stomach, his face so pale that he couldn’t even utter a cry of pain.
Such a precise and quick attack made the other two who were holding him stunned for a moment. Jiang Chen took advantage of this moment to elbow back and kick right at the same time. His movements were like flowing water, and he broke free from the restraint of the two in an instant.
The strength he could exert when exerting force backward was not as strong as that from the side. Jiang Chen dodged the outstretched hand of the person behind him, grabbed his fingers and bent them upwards. While the man screamed in pain, he disconnected his arm and also kicked him mercilessly to the side, making him completely incapacitated.
The situation turned on its head in an instant. Jiang Chen, who was being held hostage just now, looked down at the three people huddled together on the ground, and his usually clear voice was cold, with a stormy tone: “Who sent you here?”
The people on the ground grunted in pain, but no one spoke.
Jiang Chen raised his leg and stepped forward, and just as he was about to walk in front of the outermost man, a voice sounded: “I didn’t expect God Jiang to be so good at fighting. I wonder if the teachers in the school know about it.”
Jiang Chen turned around, not surprised: “Sun Zhi.”
Sun Zhi stood at the entrance of the alley, together with the crowd of people behind him, they almost blocked the entire alley.
He crossed his arms and smiled: “Senior, say, if I crippled your hand, so that you can no longer take exams and do test papers. would those teachers still protect you?”
Jiang Chen stared at Sun Zhi with a haze of dark fog in his heart.
He had lowered down the hook at the beginning, and Sun Zhi was the first fish he expected to take the bait after throwing out the bait, but his appearance also meant that he had to face the problem he was least willing to think about.
——That book was true, and He Qianjian was the biological son of his parents.
Even though the soul in He Qianjian’s body might not be the real one, but no one knew the truth except him, if the day came when everyone returned to their respective positions, what would He Qianjian do? Could his parents accept this result…..
Seeing that Jiang Chen kept silent, Sun Zhi smiled. He took two steps forward and said provocatively, “Senior, why aren’t you saying anything? Weren’t you very arrogant before? How about you shout and call the teachers over to tell on us?”
Jiang Chen pursed his lips, his eyes clear and sharp, but Sun Zhi suddenly felt an inexplicable sense of crisis.
The next second, Jiang Chen grabbed his throat with his hand and pulled him to the ground. By the time he realized it, his hands had been pulled behind his back, and he was kneeling on the ground.
These actions only happened in an instant, and Sun Zhi practically just felt his vision blur before hearing the heavy knocking of his kneecaps on the ground in a blink of an eye.
“Sun Zhi.” Jiang Chen put his knees on Sun Zhi’s back, pressed him forward with his legs, and at the same time grabbed Sun Zhi’s wrist and pulled it back forcefully. Hearing his pained cry, he leaned forward, lowered his voice and asked, “Do you think your cry just now will be heard by the teachers?”
Sun Zhi’s forehead was covered with cold sweat from the pain, and his face was full of humiliation. He was nearly 1.85 meters tall and had a strong figure, but he was easily pinned to the ground by a another boy half a head shorter than him, making it difficult to even move.
“You…..” Sun Zhi couldn’t believe it: “How can you be so good at this?”
He had been waiting at the back before, wanting to wait for the people in front to subdue Jiang Chen before coming out. If possible, he even hoped that he would not have to show up at all. After all, Jiang Chen had a special status, and he had to continue going to school in Yan No. 1 High School in the future.
Unexpectedly, just after Jiang Chen was pulled into the alley, he heard the screams of his own people in the next second. He brought a lot of people, so of course he was not afraid of anything. The only hesitation was the possible troubles after today, but after the phone call just now his worries were resolved, so he immediately led people to block the alley.
When he saw the three people lying on the ground, he realized that Jiang Chen might have good defense skills, but when he was captured and forced to kneel on the ground just at that moment, he realized how good his skills actually were.
Jiang Chen exerted force, and said calmly, “How is it not possible?”
Sun Zhi wanted to struggle, feeling shame and indignation, but the joints of the bones in his arms snapped, reminding him not to move around, “Are you all braindead! Get him already!”
Sun Zhi yelled, and the people blocking the alley swarmed over as if they had just woken up from a dream. It was probably because Jiang Chen moved too fast and too neatly just now, no one dared to take him lightly, and each of them clenched the weapons in their hands to probe him out.
Jiang Chen’s skills were honed in his previous life when he was working at the Ninth Research Institute of Imperial Military Affairs. In the Ninth Research Institute of Imperial Military Affairs, every researcher who had obtained the rank of major and above and was under the age of forty-five must learn close contact fighting and grappling courses. Most of the researchers were poor in physical fitness and were rather perfunctory in learning these skills. Jiang Chen was one of them. Although his skills were not as good as those of the special forces, he could still go a few rounds with ordinary soldiers.
It was just that two hands were hard to beat four hands. Jiang Chen’s overwhelming victory in a one-on-three was not only due to what he learned in his previous life, but also because of the element of surprise.
Standing outside the crowd, Sun Zhi finally heaved a sigh of relief when he saw the situation. Thinking of the words from above, a trace of malice flashed across his eyes, and he shouted, “Brothers, whoever breaks Jiang Chen’s hand, I will give you 20,000 yuan as a reward, ack cough cough cough——”
Before he could finish his sentence, his neck was pinched and he was pushed against the wall by a huge force. Only when the dizziness of hitting his head against the wall had just faded did he see the person in front of him.
Sun Zhi’s face changed, and it was difficult to breathe while being pinched by the neck. He coughed again and his hoarse voice trembled: “Huo cough, cough, Huo…..Bo! Didn’t you, cough, cough, disappear, cough…..”
The boy in the short crew cut increased his strength, and his expression was cold: “Repeat what you said just now.”
Just as he opened his mouth, Huo Bo tightened the grip of his left hand suddenly, and at the same time grabbed the other’s left hand hanging by his side with his right hand. Only a “snap” was heard before a burst of unprecedented sharp pain blossomed, and Sun Zhi, whose eyes rolled into the back of his head, was thrown into the corner.
Jiang Chen didn’t have time to pay attention to what was happening on the other side. He had already received a few sticks on his body. The people who surrounded him seemed to have found a tacit understanding, and they could always attack him from another angle when he went on the offensive.
At this time, just as he turned sideways to avoid a foot extending diagonally from behind, he saw someone on the right raising a stick from the corner of his eye. He turned sideways to to avoid it but right after he saw a punch heading his way from the direction he dodged towards.
Jiang Chen knew that he couldn’t dodge the punch, and when he was about to take it and then fight back, the person who threw the punch was swept away by a sideways kick, and hit the trash can on the side.
Jiang Chen was taken aback for a moment. When he turned his head to see the person, surprise appeared in his eyes: “Huo Bo!”
Huo Bo looked sinister: “Behind.”
Jiang Chen avoided it quickly, and smiled at him: “You, fella, you’re finally back.”
“If I didn’t come back, I would have to go to the hospital to see you.”
With Huo Bo joining the battle, the situation changed again. In a two against eight brawl, Jiang Chen and Huo Bo actually gained the upper hand.
Sun Zhi watched Jiang Chen and Huo Bo cooperate tacitly, and saw his people fall down one by one. Thinking of the suffocation and fear of being pinched by the neck before, he clenched his fists with trembling hands. He never expected that Huo Bo, who had disappeared for half a year, would unexpectedly appear at this critical moment.
If it was just Jiang Chen, he still had a chance of winning, but with Huo Bo…..
Sun Zhi huddled in a corner, took a deep breath, and took out the utility knife in his pocket.
He really couldn’t beat Huo Bo and Jiang Chen, and he also knew that after today, he might expect a miserable life in Yan City No. 1 High School or even be expelled from school, but compared to not being able to do what he promised to that person, these things were not scary at all…..
The opportunity Sun Zhi was waiting for soon came. Jiang Chen’s physical strength was already exhausted, and his dodging movements became stagnant. It was only by Huo Bo’s cooperation in covering him that he just barely dodged the hits. At this time, there were five people surrounding Huo Bo, and Jiang Chen also had three people in front of him. The most important thing was that both Huo Bo and Jiang Chen have their backs to him, this was the best opportunity.
Sun Zhi grasped the utility knife in his hand, stepped forward cautiously and silently, and while Jiang Chen was leaning back, he raised his hand and stabbed down with the knife.
“Jiang Chen! Go left!”
Jiang Chen subconsciously dodged to the left and back, and before he even straightened up, he felt a gust of wind blowing across his cheeks, and blood splashed on his face.
AN: Is Huo Bo considered the long-awaited one?
