Chapter 28: The Nineteenth Cycle of Time (IV)

From the beginning, the biggest enemy before Li Shiqing and Xiao Heyun was not the thugs or the bombs, but time.

Each time loop, from the first few minutes to the final thirty minutes when the clock stops rewinding, gives the two young men more time to move, but too little time to adapt.

Not to mention the many opportunities for time cycling that preceded it, even if they were outright wasted.

From the moment they realised that something had to be done to fix it, they had to reflect on their last 'mistake' almost as soon as they opened their eyes, and then correct and adapt their responses to their last mistake, and make new plans.

All their experience and solutions are based on every mistake, which often leaves little time for reflection, let alone implementation.

There were times when they regretted it afterwards, but in retrospect, given the urgency of the situation, there was no other option but to do what they had done at the time.

If they had waited to think about the pros and cons and weigh up the best options before doing so, the car would have exploded.

Before that, they had time cycled eighteen times and died a dozen times, each time in a short process, but these time cycles and deaths were not entirely meaningless.

It was these numerous failures that led to the most detailed and well thought out plan of the two young men.

With the fear of not knowing if each time loop is the last, Li Shiqing and Xiao Heyun's psychological situation is at its most precarious edge, and now only a good outcome can provide them with solace.

As Li Shiqing communicated with the driver, Xiao Heyun, who had already convinced the older man, was poised like an athlete waiting for the starting pistol, and with a cough, he immediately rose to his feet.

As he stood up, he could even feel the muscles in his arms vaguely raw - he had been clenching his fists so hard from so much tension that his arm muscles had stiffened.

The older man, who had been watching Boy closely, subconsciously touched the banknotes he had placed in his inside pocket when he stood up, and after making sure that the money would not fall out, he too stood up.

One of them was at the front of the car and the other at the back, and no one noticed that both got up at the same time except the masked man sitting in the last row, until they both pounced on the same target in unison ......

Auntie Flower Cloth!

This is the same person who has caused so many deaths, so many beatings, so much suffering, that even Boy, who is the mildest of temperament, is full of negative emotions when confronted with her, not to mention the possibility of "mercy", but the most ferocious force to tear her out.

This older woman's reaction was not a bad one, the moment she was just touched by Boy, she tried to reach her plastic bag, only that everyone knew what was in that plastic bag and was on guard against her, not letting her touch anything or even make a move.

So when she was pulled out cold, she didn't even have time to cry out in pain before another pair of large hands grabbed her wrists in a death grip.

Robust uncle strikes!

The only thing he had to worry about was the knife she was carrying.

At the thought that she still had the knife on her, the older man's grip on her wrist became harder.


Feeling her arm immobilised by an iron grip and a sharp pain in her wrist, the older woman's eyes lit up with fury and she kicked the fit man in front of her like a madman.

With such fierce resistance, the older man was unable to control her well, so he simply dragged her to the front of the carriage and kicked her hard in the calf, just like he did with Boy before, and pinned her to the ground.

The commotion was so great that everyone in the carriage was stunned, plus the stocky uncle looked so fierce with his looks and muscles that some people subconsciously pulled out their mobile phones and prepared to call the police.

Li Shiqing is a girl and has been psychologically scarred by the painful lesson she learned from the older woman, so for her physical and psychological safety, Xiao Heyun is not prepared to involve her directly in the process of subduing her.

She was assigned the task of calming the passengers in the car as well as communicating with the driver's uncle at all times to facilitate the strategy.

In their plan, if the driver's uncle was willing to cooperate, they could even avoid the process of breaking the window with a safety hammer, and as soon as the car stopped, they could just run out of the car with the pot and throw it into the river, one less process, and countless less variables.

"Don't be afraid when the police are on the case!"

As soon as Li Shiqing noticed the change in mood of the passenger, she quickly shouted, "This person is mentally ill, carrying a knife and has dangerous tendencies, you should not go near her."

She bit her lower lip hard, using the pain to force herself to distract herself from the older woman.

By this time, the car had come to a complete stop.

"Uncle driver, open the door!"

After settling down, Li Shiqing took a deep breath and shouted at the older man.

The older woman, who was pinned to the ground in a death grip, stopped howling and started bawling.

The cries were full of pathos and pain, as if they contained the greatest sorrow and suffering in the world, and they made everyone's heart feel terrified and uncomfortable.

Many of the passengers who were still snapping away were so taken by this sadness that they put down their phones with complicated eyes and stopped continuing to point at the man on the ground.

Li Shiqing is the only one who is unmoved, staring intently at the pressure cooker in his hand.

"Uncle, open the door!"

Once again she made a prodding noise.

The car was parked, but the door was not open.

At this point, several of the men pressing the older woman began to sense that something was wrong.

"Uncle driver, open the door!"

Boy shouted emotionally.

"What's going on, didn't you guys discuss it? Holy shit!"

Knowing what was in that pressure cooker, the masked man rushed to the door in a panic and pulled up hard on the back door.


Li Shiqing is carrying the heavy pressure cooker and even her arms are starting to get sore.

An incredible suspicion suddenly flashed through her mind and she turned her head suddenly to look at the driver.

The driver, who had stopped the car, took his hands off the steering wheel and fell back in his seat to the sound of the older woman's sorrowful cries, letting out a long breath of relief.

" Xiao Heyun, do something!"

Li Shiqing's tears were so intense that the only person she could rely on was her companion.

"You're holding her down!"

No need for Li Shiqing to ask for help, Boy had already let go of the older woman's hand, stood up and rushed to the nearest safety hammer.

The other passengers in the car didn't understand what was happening and looked at each other, not daring to speak.

Just then, the familiar Canons bell rang at first once again.

They hadn't heard the dreaded bell for so many times that they had subconsciously ignored it. But the bell was like a spell, and when it rang again, it rekindled the deepest fears in Li Shiqing and Xiao Heyun's hearts.

Li Shiqing's scalp went numb and her whole body was as cold as if she had fallen into the ice cave of the ninth day.


That familiar pain, in a way she least expects ......

Once again descending.
