(Fortune’s Favor Awaits Those who Survived the Catastrophe (3)

“Hurry, how do you disarm this?”

Gao Ran got his men to detain Huo Siyi, and they brought him to the car along with the weakened Huo Siqian.

Huo Mian and Little Bean were the only ones left in the factory building with Qin Chu, Gao Ran, and the bomb squad.

The three expert bomb diffusers studied them for a while, and finally, the leading expert approached them with a heavy face.

“Director Gao… President Qin…”

“What’s going on? Is it difficult?” Gao Ran asked.

“The difficulty is not the problem, but…” the head of the bomb squad began stuttering.

Gao Ran and Qin Chu shot each other a look, as they both sensed that something was wrong.

“But what? Please go on…” Gao Ran gestured for the bomb squad experts to continue talking.

“The explosives are linked.”

“What does that mean?” Gao Ran frowned and Qin Chu listened calmly.

“It means… If the wire in one bomb is cut, the other will immediately explode,” the expert explained.

“Damn… That’s so f-cked up… What if we cut both at the same time?” Gao Ran didn’t believe him.

“Then both will go off…”

Gao Ran and Qin Chu fell silent when they heard that.

“How long do we have?” Qin Chu asked.

“A little more than seven minutes… So, our suggestion is for Mr. Qin to choose one… The explosive is too complicated, we can’t decode it in such a short amount of time. You have to choose one.”

“I’m going to ask that bastard, damn it.” Enraged, Gao Ran headed for the car.

“Don’t go, he’s not going to tell you anything, it’s useless…” Qin Chu had previous contact with Huo Siyi and he knew that with his ill mind and malicious intent. He would never let it slip. Even if he did, time was running short, and he couldn’t waste any more time…

Qin Chu tilted his head and worryingly looked at Huo Mian and Little Bean.

Little Bean was cuddling with her mother.

“Mommy, I’m hungry… I want fried chicken,” Little Bean softly said.

“Sweetie, we’ll be done soon. When we get home… Mommy will make you whatever you want to eat, okay?”

“Okay, okay. I also want a toy plane, a big remote-controlled one.”


“I also want Haagen Daz and tiramisu… Right, Pudding likes blueberry-favor, I like strawberry-favor. Mommy, don’t get them mixed up…”

“Mhm, I know.”

Huo Mian gently caressed Little Bean’s hair and comforted her.

“Chu, what are we going to do?” Gao Ran sympathetically looked at Qin Chu.

“Please carry Little Bean away to the other side of the factory…” Qin Chu said in a low voice.

If they could only save one of them, they had to separate them for now.

“Mhm, should I bring her further than that?” Gao Ran asked.

Qin Chu didn’t answer, and Gao Ran didn’t ask any further.

Gao Ran walked over, lifted up Little Bean, and said, “Let’s go, Uncle Gao is gonna bring you somewhere fun.”

“Wow. Uncle Gao, is Auntie Lingling here?”

“No, she’s still sleeping at home.” Gao Ran strode out with Little Bean in his arms.

“Then is Gao Boyuan here? I haven’t seen him these days, I bought him a toy car when I was in the States… Haha, he’s going to love it!”

“Really? Thank you, Little Bean…” the child’s words caused Gao Ran to reach the brink of tears.

“Uncle Gao, when can I go home? I’m so hungry… You know?”

Little Bean had no idea what was going to happen and continued complaining to Gao Ran. Every sentence she spoke felt like blades to Gao Ran’s heart.
