The Trembling World Chapter 439
Chapter 439 – Reassurance
“She wants you to buy her a drink, then ask her for money!” Ana was pissed off as she pointed at the girlfriend.
“Would that work?” Star Yu hesitated before glancing at the girl on the swinging chair. Even now, he still felt weird when he tried to talk with them.
“If you don’t try, how will you know?” Ana pushed Star Yu over to the swinging chair.
“You told me to buy the drink, but I don’t have any money. Do you have five yuan?” Star Yu asked the girlfriend.
“How can you interrupt us like this?” The girl was clearly upset from being interrupted by Star Yu during her makeout session.
“Here, now leave us!” The boyfriend quickly handed over five yuan to Star Yu.
Materializing from the air was usable currency, not phantasmal. Star Yu extended out his hand to touch the money, and could touch it. However, when he tried to touch the couple, they were still apparitions. Seemed like the money was a necessary prop for fulfilling this mission.
“Where are you trying to touch on the girl? You little pervert! You don’t have any moral integrity!” Ana kicked Star Yu on his buttocks.
“I only wanted to see if I could touch them!” Star Yu started to justify his actions.
“Yeah I know, did you feel her up yet? Is it a C cup or D cup?” Ana rebutted.
“Sister Ana, you are becoming more unreasonable!” Star Yu was glowing red from embarrassment.
“Child! Leave me!” Ana kicked Star Yu in the ass again.
Star Yu checked the bruise on his rear, then angrily ran back to the vendor. Right as he was about to purchase the drink, he heard a loud warning shout! “Star, your left! Watch out on your left side!”
Star Yu turned to see the Crocodile creature heading in his direction, it had locked onto him as a target!
Even as the Crocodile approached, the couple didn’t move from their seat. They didn’t even react. Their unwavering confidence stemmed from the fact that they couldn’t be injured.
Star Yu was scared to death. He abandoned his task at hand and was able to avoid the first attack. If it weren’t for Ana’s warning, Star Yu wouldn’t have survived the ambush. Then, Star Yu ran in a different direction to safety.
Ana’s sharp scream attracted the attention of the Crocodile, and after regaining its balance, it focused on charging at Ana.
Ana ran in a zigzag formation, which caused the overly eager Crocodile to fall down after it missed the mark. Aggravated from getting humiliated, it roared in anger.
The Crocodile creature got up off the ground and continued to chase after Ana. Eventually, both of them disappeared from Star Yu’s view.
Star Yu remained standing in place without drawing any attention to himself. Once he felt that the dangerous situation had been averted, he sought out the bald salesman and handed over the five yuan. Once the bald salesman received the money, he examined it on both sides to confirm that it is genuine.
“Please! Couldn’t you move faster? It is only five yuan, you don’t need to examine it for so long! Can you give me the black tea already!” Star Yu urged the vendor. Now that Ana wasn’t by his side, there was no one he can rely on to warn him of potential dangers.
“What’s the rush?” The bald salesman was unimpressed at being rushed. Slowly, the salesman reached into the box and pulled out a bottle of black tea for Star Yu.
This time it was a real bottle of black tea, the type that you can touch and hold. It had materialized by the time it reached Star Yu’s hand. Meanwhile, Ana and the Crocodile were nowhere to be seen. Taking advantage of that, Star Yu quickly rushed over to the couple on the swing and completed his task. Now he had to ask her for details regarding the whereabouts of Wan’er.
“Oh, that young girl? She walked by and asked me where the bathroom was. I didn’t know where the bathroom was located so I pointed to a direction where she could find more information. She headed toward the direction of where I pointed, so you can try that direction. Maybe you will find her,” the girlfriend finally revealed what information she had. She did this while sipping on her soothing black tea.
Meanwhile, Ana was screaming while leading the Crocodile on a wild goose chase. Just as she was worrying on how she could lose this creature, the solution to her problems ran up to her. The solution came in the form of a person; it was Liu Gan coming to the rescue. Liu Gan came in with his axe waving, and quickly injured the Crocodile at several joints. He had the Crocodile’s full attention, now he needed to lure it away from Ana.
“Lord Liu, you came at the right time!” Ana catching her breath and gestured a thumbs up.
Even though she had mastered the technique of sidestepping, without Liu Gan’s supervision she couldn’t perform it to the fullest extent. Not to mention that she was doing extra wasteful movements, which exhausted her. Only when she saw Liu Gan’s face was she able to relax.
Only this type of man could provide her the necessary feeling of safety and reassurance. Without a doubt, he was definitely her type!
Liu Gan didn’t kill the Crocodile, he merely led it to a different area. As it was chasing after Liu Gan, they maintained the same distance throughout since the creature’s top speed matched Liu Gan’s top speed. Liu Gan had to keep on running as fast as he could.
Both man and creature ran several kilometers from their initial encounter. After passing through several buildings, Liu Gan made his great escape. After Liu Gan disappeared from the creature’s view, it would wander around aimlessly.
Liu Gan parkoured his way around the building by taking sharp turns. Then he avoided the creature and headed back to Ana. By the time Liu Gan got back to the location, he saw that Stratos was accompanying Ana.
“Lord Liu, Star Yu and I have found clues regarding Wan’er!” Ana quickly reported and explained the situation to Liu Gan.
While the three were discussing possibilities of Wan’er’s location, they proceeded in the direction Ana had left, the area of trees with swinging chairs. Star Yu was still waiting there, just as nervous as before. The apparitions of the couple and the sales people were no longer there.
“Lord Liu!” Star Yu ran over to greet them. He was overly excited since he didn’t feel safe being partnered with Ana.
“What is the current situation now?” Liu Gan asked.
“When I arrived with Ana, there was an apparition of a couple. I asked them if they had any information regarding Wan’er. They had information, but they wanted me to buy her a drink at the pavilion…” Star Yu started to explain.
“I told Lord Liu about that already. Just update him with what happened after I left you!” Ana interrupted, as she was becoming more impatient.
