Wife is Fierce, Don’t Mess With Her! - Chapter 741 - Now That She Had Grown Up
Chapter 741: Now That She Had Grown Up
There was still some time before the competition ended, but it was soon.
Gu Qingjiu and Yin Ruoyi ran together.
The duo engaged in a hushed conversation as they walked, and Gu Qingjiu raised her doubts.
“Didn’t you sense someone coming?”
Since Yin Ruoyi could directly sense Cruff’s attack in the previous round, there was no reason he deteriorated this year on the contrary.
Yin Ruoyi observed the surroundings as he walked with Gu Qingjiu, and upon hearing this, let out a bitter chuckle. “It’s not this. I’m injured.”
As he spoke, he raised his arm and showed it to Gu Qingjiu. “I was attacked by a venomous snake after the rain stopped yesterday. My entire left arm is completely numb. This venom can persist for a very long time, and it has some influence on my judgment. Hence, even as you and Cruff arrived nearby I didn’t detect that. Over these two days, I didn’t even dare to move towards places where players were densely clustered.”
Even though he couldn’t take it lying down, due to this accident, the only thing Yin Ruoyi could do was to try his best to keep himself safe.
Gu Qingjiu looked at the arm Yin Ruoyi raised, and couldn’t tell any difference from usual. But upon careful look, she could see that his five fingers appeared very stiff.
Such disasters from nature indeed rendered one helpless. Gu Qingjiu cast a look of sympathy at Yin Ruoyi. “I hadn’t expected such an accident would occur. But thankfully the two of us eliminated Cruff. For the remaining time, there shouldn’t be much of a problem if we’re careful. Just follow behind me. I will alert you if there’s danger.”
Yin Ruoyi nodded. “I know.”
There was no other way.
He felt a tad bitter in his heart.
He had thought that he had put up a pretty good performance this year, but unexpectedly this accident happened, and now he had no choice but to follow behind Gu Qingjiu.
However, Yin Ruoyi did feel a kick seeing Cruff eliminated.
To him, regardless of whether it was him or Gu Qingjiu who eliminated Cruff, he didn’t care. Cruff simply had the abilities but not the magnanimity that should come with it.
Hence Yin Ruoyi loathed this person and didn’t feel an ounce of sympathy seeing Cruff eliminated.
This person ultimately was defeated by his arrogance.
Regardless, ending Cruff’s quest for three consecutive wins was equivalent to China accomplishing half of its mission.
It would naturally be best if they won this competition.
It was already certain that Gu Qingjiu had the highest score, and China was also ranked first. Even if any accident should befall him, with Gu Qingjiu’s high score, the China team didn’t have anything to fear.
This was nothing. He still had opportunities in the future. He was still young. Just like Cruff, next time, three years later, he could continue to participate once more.
And fight alongside Gu Qingjiu.
At the thought of this, Yin Ruoyi inhaled a deep breath and carefully followed behind Gu Qingjiu.
On the screen, Yin Ruoyi could be seen following behind Gu Qingjiu. For such a tall and burly figure to need the protection of a girl, it was indeed a comical scene to witness.
But nobody cared about that now.
Because this girl had terrifying capabilities. After she eliminated Cruff and fired that shocking shot…
Nobody dared to belittle her anymore. Moreover, with Yin Ruoyi’s injury, it was natural for them to act this way.
Huo Yingcheng watched that comparatively petite figure on the screen calmly take charge as she stood in this international competition and protected her teammate with her capabilities.
Although she wasn’t big in build, she gave off the impression that she was filled with greatness.
