Chapter 664 - Stop Watch
Chapter 664 Stop Watch
She immediately dodged to the side!
A steel pipe, borne by a strong wind, brushed past her cheek!
Ning Li’s heart suddenly tightened!
Three men had unknowingly rushed out from the dark and narrow alley at the side and silently came up behind her!
The person who had rushed to the front had a strong figure, a fierce face, and a vicious expression.
Seeing that his attack had missed, he immediately raised his wrist and waved the steel pipe in his hand again, charging straight for Ning Li’s face!
The two people following behind him also quickly rushed forward and surrounded Ning Li on both sides.
The three of them attacked Ning Li at the same time!
A vicious look flashed across Ning Li’s eyes. Instead of retreating, she advanced forward and closed in on them!
She lowered her body as the steel pipe swung over her head, bringing with it a strong wind that almost made her scalp go numb! In the next moment, she grabbed the wrist of the man in the middle and pulled it forcefully!
At first, the man did not think much of it. However, Ning Li’s strength was much greater than he had expected. Moreover, her movements were so agile that it was simply difficult to control.
Before he could react, his entire body had already been pulled down by Ning Li!
Ning Li did not hesitate and raised her knee towards him!
The man let out a muffled groan and a pained expression appeared on his face.
At the same time, he loosened his grip and the steel pipe fell to the ground.
Ning Li kicked him away and conveniently bent down to pick up the steel pipe on the ground.
A gust of cold wind came from the left and back!
Ning Li’s eyes were ice-cold as she quickly turned around and counterattacked!
The steel pipe collided fiercely, almost causing the person’s arm to go numb!
The man was shocked. Clearly, he had not expected that Ning Li would actually be able to take this blow.
However, at this moment, the man on the right quickly followed up and aimed to smash the back of Ning Li’s head!
Ning Li’s heart tightened.
In this situation, it was already too late for her to counterattack!
She quickly made a judgment and staggered the placement of her feet slightly as she tried to take the blow with her shoulders and back.
As long as she could avoid the vital parts–
However, the expected heavy blow did not land.
Bang! A muffled sound was heard.
Ning Li suddenly turned her head and saw Shen Zhijin standing behind her.
The man’s steel pipe smashed heavily towards Shen Zhijin’s left arm!
Vaguely, Ning Li heard a slight sound. However, at this time, she did not have time to think carefully. Almost subconsciously, she moved forward at an even faster speed and directly kicked the knee of the man who was close to her!
His face instantly turned pale as he lost control of his legs and fell to his knees on the ground.
She immediately looked at Shen Zhijin and saw that he had already seized the man’s steel pipe.
After losing his weapon, the man turned around to run away but Shen Zhijin did not hesitate and immediately hit him on the back!
The man staggered and fell to the ground.
Ning Li looked at his left arm worriedly.
That attack had been so vicious, he…
Just then, the man who had been knocked down by Ning Li at the beginning rushed over again! “Go to hell!”
Ning Li turned around and saw a cold glint flash past! –The man had actually brought a dagger! At the moment, he was extremely close, and it was almost impossible to dodge!
Ning Li was about to move when she suddenly felt a strong force pulling her back.
The man’s dagger cut right through Shen Zhijin’s sleeve and a streak of blood quickly spread out!
Shen Zhijin’s expression was extremely cold. He shielded Ning Li closely behind him as he raised his foot and kicked the other person right in the chest!
Everything had happened in just a matter of moments.
Due to the falling snow, there were very few pedestrians on the road. Fortunately, there were a few shops on the street. Noticing the commotion, a few people ran over to help.
The three men were quickly subdued by everyone and someone called the police.
“Professor Shen, are you alright?”
A middle-aged man rushed over and looked at Shen Zhijin with a worried expression on his face.
They were all shop owners near the school, so of course, they knew him.
Shen Zhijin shook his head.
“How can you be fine? Your arm has been cut!”
The man said anxiously.
Ning Li’s heart skipped a beat. She looked over and saw that Shen Zhijin’s left arm was stained with a large amount of blood.
Shen Zhijin looked down and his expression suddenly changed.
He quickly turned back and looked around in the snow. A hint of panic appeared on his usually calm face.
“Professor Shen, shall I send you to the hospital?” The middle-aged man asked worriedly.
Shen Zhijin did not answer him.
He walked forward and looked for something on the ground.
Ning Li moved forward.
“Teacher Shen, what are you looking for?”
Shen Zhijin pursed his lips tightly.
The snow was still falling, and the ground was covered with a thick layer of snow.
He walked through the snow, as if he was completely unaware of his surroundings. He was only focused on looking for something anxiously.
Finally, his gaze was fixed on a certain spot. His brows relaxed, and the nervous and helpless aura around him gradually dissipated.
He bent down and stretched out his hand.
The dark red blood had already completely soaked his sleeve. The blood had spread out from his sleeve. A drop of blood flowed down along his slender and pale hand and silently fell into the snow, melting into a small red puddle.
He seemed to be unaware of it as he picked something up.
Ning Li’s mind jolted.
It was the watch that Shen Zhijin had been wearing on his left wrist that had already stopped moving. After picking the watch up with his hand, he finally heaved a sigh of relief.
However, it was at this moment that he realized that his left hand was already covered in a mess of blood, and the watchband was stained with blood.
He frowned slightly, and a hint of pity and guilt welled up in his eyes.
Then, he carefully wiped the watch with a corner of his relatively clean shirt, but there some traces were still left behind.
The blood on his left hand was still silently dripping
He still seemed to be completely unaware as he kept his head lowered and continued to wipe the blood on the watch band away seriously and stubbornly.
Again and again.
For some reason, Ning Li suddenly felt an indescribable pain in her heart.
She walked over and stood beside Shen Zhijin. “Teacher Shen, let’s go to the doctor first–“
Her voice suddenly stopped, and her gaze fell on Shen Zhijin’s left wrist in shock.
Perhaps it was because he had made a move earlier, but the cuff of his sleeve had slipped a little, revealing a tough and well-jointed wrist.
It was very beautiful.
However, an old scar could be seen stretched across it. Without the cover of the Watch, the scar was silent and open, as if it wanted to tear everything apart and destroy everything.
Ning Li’s heart felt as if it had been hit by something hard. She froze and looked up at Shen Zhijin.
So that was…
His deepest secret that was hidden beneath the watch.
