Chapter 38 You are an actress (end of volume 1)

 Chapter 38 You are an actress
(End of volume 1)
Yu Xiaohai was dazed for a moment then burst out laughing:” chu, you are funny.”

Chu Yunsheng rolled his eyes and said:” you think you're a good guy, huh? ok,  we should stop it, we are really running out of time!”

Yu Xiaohai turned to face the girl and shrug his shoulder:” you see, I told you my brother doesn't recognise you, you should stop following us.”

“do I have to know who she is!” Chu Yunsheng suddenly asked, he probably had heard this name before, but it was very blurry, all he thought right now were the insect and escape. Just two days ago, he had seen a person who used to be a very famous tv presenter died in A red shelled insect’s claw, he didn't feel anything at that time, the whole world was in the chaos right now, who cared how famous you used to be, whoever survived the longest was the real winner.

You Xiaohai grinned, he knew he was a bit boring, so he closed his mouth and walked behind Chu Yunsheng.

“Can you take me with you?” Lin Shuiyao clung onto her last hope.

Yu Xiaohai pointed at Chu Yunsheng who stood in front of him, he was trying to say you need to talk to him.

Chu Yunsheng was worried if she was still going to follow them, so he thought for a second then said:” if you were an awakening just like him, then it would be helpful for everyone, then I would consider you joining us, but you should understand if you don't have any abilities, it would be dangerous for everyone, so…..”

She saw Chu Yunsheng was going to refuse her, she immediately interrupted him:” I knew a jade pendant, it's exactly like the one you wanted on the roof!”

Chu Yunsheng's heart jumped:” what did you say?!:

Lin ShuiYao looked at his eyes, replied with certainty:” yes that woman’s pendant, when she gave it to you, I was there, I have seen one exactly like it.”

Chu Yunsheng's pupils suddenly became bigger, the information about the maps was very important to him, and he had no clue where to find them, this girl claimed that she saw one which was exactly the same as the one on the roof. Of course, He was very suspicious about it, his first reaction was this girl was lying to him, the motivation was obviously to ask him to bring her with them. but she would bring huge risk to them, it was big enough to scrap his old plan and make a new one.

Chu Yunsheng looked her up and down, he tried to find any sign that might indicate she was lying, The girl was staring at Chu Yunsheng at all times, she did not panic nor did she avoid the eye contact.

it was like an invisible contest between believing and disbelieve, their eyesight clashed with each other, and whoever backed off first would lose the contest.

Chu Yunsheng couldn't find anything wrong about her,  but it made her even more suspicious because Chu Yunseng knew she was an actress!

He calmly said”: how can I believe you?”

Lin ShuiYao smiled:” you think I am lying to you?”

Chu Yunsheng sneered and reminded her:” don't forget you are an actress!”

Liu Shuiyao didn't react for a second, until she realized what he meant, she had a slight of helplessness appeared on her face,  then she knitted her eyebrows and pointed at his big sword:” you don't need to make it too complicated, with your abilities, if you find out I'm lying, you can use it to kill me at anytime.”

Even Lin Shuiyao said this, Chu Yunsheng still thought for a minute. Just like what he told Yu Xiaohai, everything was dangerous now, but for the second map, maybe it was worth a try.

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head and said sternly:” I'll try to believe you,but you need to remember every single word you just said, you can tell me where the jade pendant is now.”

Lin Shuiyao grinned with relief:” it was a birthday present a company director gave to his son, I was at his birthday party that day.” she paused for a second, her eyes slightly moved, it caused the light to flash in her eyes. She carried on:” as far as I know, they were at Jin ling city before the sun disappeared, As for the specific name, I'll tell you when we get to Jin ling city, I hope you would understand.”

Chu Yunsheng snorted with a slight anger:” so are you threatening me right now? if you don't believe me, how can we work together?”

Lin ShuiYao shook her head and apologised:” I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't do this, but I'm really scared that you are going to abandon me later. if you were me, you would do the same, wouldn't you?”

Chu Yunsheng didn't answer her, instead, he asked her:” you really think that jade pendant is important to me?”

She had a sly smile on her face:” when we were on the roof before, I already knew, you were looking at that women's pendant for the whole time.”

Chu Yunsheng was shocked, this girl wasn't talking much at that time, apart from being held as a hostage by Gu Liming, the whole incident had nothing to do with her. He didn't expect that she would be such a sophisticated person that secretly observed them.

She was a smart and cautious woman, this was Chu Yunsheng’s impression of her, then again, which woman wasn't smart in the entertainment industry?

He understood why she was doing that, in such dangerous world, how could anyone build up trust with a stranger so quickly, she had to keep something with her, so the deal could last longer.

But it didn't mean he was going to accept it, although the map was important to him, four maps couldn't be collected in a short amount of time, if she thought she could use this to restrict him, then she was wrong.

When talking to the smart people, Chu Yunsheng didn't want to deny that he needed the pendant, he gave Lin Shuiyao a friendly smile and said:” you were right, but unfortunately it is not my way of doing things, I don't think we can work together, so bye- bye!”

Just right after he said it, he opened the door and stepped outside, actually, he was worried that he couldn't refuse the temptation of wanting to go back.

“you!” her face was taut, and she was terrified, she didn't expect this would be the outcome, so she panicked, Chu Yunsheng might not need her information, but she needed his protection, although it was an unfair deal, she didn't have other choices.

She gritted her teeth and followed him, she shouted in the hallway:” ok, you win, I can tell you who has it!”

But Chu Yunsheng didn't seem to hear what she said, his heart was jumping rapidly. Just a moment ago, through the window at corner, he saw a naked woman appeared on the street!

It was the sign of tentacle monster!

He couldn't kill this type of monster, he needed to run away as fast as he could.

Lin ShuiYao didn't know what was going on, she thought that Chu Yunsheng was pretending that he didn't hear her, he wanted to humiliate her. But what could she do?  She had been following them all the way here, just hoping that they could help her,  she felt wronged:” you… you want me to beg you?”

Chu Yunsheng was so scared right now,  he was scared that the monster could hear the noise from here, he pointed at Lin Shuiyao and hissed:” you shut up!” “silent!”

He signalled Yu Xiaohai to switched off the flashlight and leant against the wall. At the same time he switched on the infrared sensor carefully detecting the movement inside the building, his heartbeats still didn't slow down for a second!

Lin ShuiYao’s body started to shake uncontrollably, it was not because Chu Yunsheng hissed at her, it was because she knew Chu Yunsheng was under the extreme stress, and whatever that thing was, it was definitely dangerous than three red shelled insects!
