The police didnt arrive until Xu Jinchen was back in the village.
It took the police about 20 minutes to arrive.
The young girls parents almost cried when they saw their daughter was finally back, and Xu Jinchen told them to go to the hospital right away.
A policeman wanted to ask Xu Jinchen some questions, but Xu Jinchen directly showed him his official certificate.
“The man is the suspect that were looking for, so well take over the case.”
It was a lie, but he was a senior colonel, so the police had to believe him.
Since Xu Jinchen wanted to deal with this case in person, the police left.
After that, Xu Jinchen walked towards the mountain again.
He believed that Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting would be fine, but he was still worried about them.
On his way to the mountain, he saw Leng Shaoting and Gu Ning walking back.
“Hey, are you alright How about the man” Xu Jinchen asked.
“Were fine, but he just fell down the cliff,” Leng Shaoting said.
“What” Xu Jinchen was surprised, but didnt think it was a bad result.
“Hows the girl” Leng Shaoting asked.
“Shes fine, but just passed out, and her parents took her to the hospital,” Xu Jinchen said.
Leng Shaoting nodded and felt relieved.
Thinking of the man in black, Xu Jinchen got curious.
“You havent told me anything about the man yet.
How come he could jump so high and move like lightning”
Leng Shaoting didnt answer his question right away, but gave Gu Ning a glance to ask for her opinion.
Gu Ning knew that it was impossible for them to keep it secret right now, and she thought it would be better for them to tell Xu Jinchen so that he could handle it in the future.
“Do you believe in monsters and ghosts” Gu Ning asked.
“Of course not,” Xu Jinchen snorted.
However, he thought of the man in black all of a sudden.
“No way, are monsters and ghosts real”
“Yeah, the man indeed isnt an ordinary man,” Gu Ning said.
“You might have never seen them before, but they really exist.”
Hearing that, Xu Jinchen was scared and looked around at once.
Even though he was an adult and strong man, he still felt quite nervous.
It wasnt embarrassing at all, because monsters and ghosts were really scary.
“A-Are you serious” It was hard for Xu Jinchen to accept.
“Yes,” Gu Ning said.
“Boss, did you know about it earlier on” Xu Jinchen turned to look at Leng Shaoting.
However, although he asked that question, he already had the answer in his mind.
Leng Shaoting and Gu Ning were boyfriend and girlfriend, so Leng Shaoting must be aware of it.
“Yeah,” Leng Shaoting said.
Afterwards, Gu Ning continued, “The man is a cultivator and he keeps practicing his cultivation for immortality.”
“Ive read about that in a fantasy novel before,” Xu Jinchen said.
“Great, its basically the same as in a fantasy novel.
Cultivators are divided into the Good Practice and the Evil Practice.
Members of the Good Practice need magical power from the universe to practice their cultivation, while members of the Evil Practice need Yin to do that.
The young girl must be a virgin who was born on a lunar date, which could also satisfy the need of members of the Evil Practice.
The man you just ran into is precisely a member of the Evil Practice.”
Xu Jinchen took a long breath in and couldnt believe his ears.
“Cultivators can run on walls, which is called qinggong, and they can also use spells to do what they want.
I think the man isnt a senior cultivator, or you wouldnt have survived so easily today,” Gu Ning said and felt scared in retrospect.
Leng Shaoting tightly held her hand to comfort her.
Xu Jinchen was also frightened.
“This is so hard for me to accept right now,” he said.
“Boss, how did you feel when you heard of it for the first time”
“I was also shocked, but I could accept it,” Leng Shaoting said.
“Fine, I think I will probably have a nightmare tonight,” Xu Jinchen said.
Although he already believed in it, it was still too scary to be true.
“You better keep it secret and avoid cultivators from now on,” Gu Ning said in the end.
Xu Jinchen was too weak for them after all.
“I understand.” Xu Jinchen nodded.
