In the distance, an assassin, who had been watching in the shadows, witnessed this scene and could not help but freeze. He did not understand and was greatly shocked.
Then, he slowly walked to the edge of the cliff.
However, before he could get close to the edge, he withdrew because of the chilly wind.
“He’s dead. He must be dead.”
The assassin sneered and turned away.
The bone–piercing cold wind was like knives against Andrius‘ face, stinging him badly.
However, this wind was nothing compared to what he had experienced on the western border. It was not enough to make him retreat.
“S–save me…” The girl had lost all her composure and instinctively called Andrius for help.
“Stay calm and don’t panic! Grab onto my hand tightly, quick!”
Andrius took advantage of the downward momentum and swiftly grabbed the girl’s outstretched arm, pulling her toward him.
The wind kept blowing, and the girl was freezing. Half of it was due to fear, and the other half was from
As they continued to fall, Andrius held the girl with one hand and grabbed the side of the cliff with the
The speed of their fall gradually slowed down.
However, it came at a cost. Andrius‘ hand which was tough as steel was now covered in blood.
The girl trembled when she saw the blood and squirmed in Andrius‘ arms.
Andrius was speechless and held onto her tightly. Otherwise, they would fall to their deaths.
“Stop moving! I’ll shift the weight!”
His yell made the girl freeze, and then he continued to use his hand to slow down their fall.
The two of them kept dropping, but it was at a controlled speed. However, Andrius‘ hand was completely mangled, covered in blood from the cliff.
The girl took a glance and did not dare to open her eyes again.
Finally, Andrius saw the bottom.
The moment they landed, he twisted his body so that the girl was on top of him, and he braced himself to
cushion the impact.
The next moment, they slammed heavily onto the ground.
Andrius spat out a mouthful of blood.
The cliff was too high. Despite his efforts to slow down and cushion the impact, he was still injured.
As for the girl, she landed on top of Andrius with her mouth on his face. However, she was completely frozen with fear, so she continued to cling to Andrius. Her alluring lips were also still pressed on his face.
Andrius felt two large mounds pressing on him.
“Uh…” He pushed her away and sat up with difficulty. “You can get up now.”
The girl mechanically climbed up from Andrius‘ body. It was clear that she was still in shock. Her pupils were still dilated.
When Andrius got up and started to check his own injuries, the girl gradually calmed down.
She took a deep breath, her chest heaving as she rode the adrenaline and joy of surviving a disaster. Her heart gradually calmed down.
Then, she said sincerely, “Thank you. Thank you for saving me!”
Andrius almost spat out blood again.
Was he really that old?
Was he at an age where he looked like a mister?
“Mister, you don’t look too good…” The girl’s clear eyes flickered with deep concern for Andrius.
Well, surviving a fall from that height was already a stroke of luck. How could he still look good?
Andrius ignored her and focused on tending to his injuries. The girl asked, “Mister, I’m Emmy Gaines. What’s your name?”
