Chapter 46 Being Followed “I feel like someone is following us?” “What?” Ariella was so scared that she hugged herself tightly and looked back nervously. “Are you sure? Are you seeing it wrongly?”
Kisa shook her head. She could not tell the feeling, only felt a whoosh of wind behind her, accompanied by a not–so–obvious sound of footsteps. Perhaps it was all in her head, but her gut feeling told her that Anthony deliberately did not send a car for her and Ariella. Seeing that there was a street with street lights not far ahead, she pulled Ariella and said, “Let‘s hurry.
Ariella nodded and picked up her pace. “Aaaah!” Ariella screamed all of a sudden as she fell to the ground.
Kisa hurriedly helped her up. “What‘s wrong?”
“It is all your fault for asking me to walk back to the hotel. Look what happens now.” In annoyance, Ariella kicked off her high heels and kneaded her painful foot as she complained in exasperation.
Kisa silently helped her up. As she bent down, she suddenly saw a few people approaching from behind. Her heart skipped a beat, and she told Ariella. “Quickly go. There really is someone following us.”
Ariella‘s face turned pale, some clips of women being brutally murdered crossing her mind. She glanced back and complained with fearful sobs. “It is all because you suggested walking back. You are getting me killed.”
Kisa could not think of anything else to do, so she grabbed her and ran. Ariella screamed as she ran, but the surrounding area was too secluded, and there was no one around. When they reached the alleyway turnoff, Ariella could not run anymore and yelled at Kisa, “You go and distract them! You‘re ugly anyway, and they won‘t do anything to you if they catch you.”
Kisa nodded her head without a word and was prepared to split up with Ariella. She felt she could not get away with Ariella in tow, so they might as well split up, and the one who got away could at least go to the police. But just as she turned to run toward another fork in the alley, Ariella yanked her back again. “Give me your shoes,” Ariella said.
Seeing that the men were about to catch up, Kisa had no time to argue with her. She took off her shoes and gave them to Ariella and then ran. The ground was cold and rough. She almost cried after stepping on small stones several times. But she did not dare stop because footsteps behind her were getting closer and closer. Kisa did not know what kind of people they were. Judging by the shapes of the silhouettes, these people did not look like street punks but hitmen or something. Anthony‘s ruthless and scheming look came to mind, and she suspected it was who. Anthony sent these people. ‘But why does he want to catch Ariella?‘
As she was thinking, a powerful force pulled her violently into an increasingly dark and narrow alley next to her. Before she could scream, her mouth was tightly covered. She shook
her head in fear and fought back desperately, but the man clutched her hands from behind and pushed her forward. Kisa was terrified, not knowing who these guys were. They did not seem to be the same group of people who had just followed them.
‘What is going on, and who has Ariella and I messed with?‘
Soon, the man behind her escorted her to a small black car. Kisa was even more scared, wondering where they were taking her. She was a nobody in this unfamiliar place. No one would even know even if she was killed. Thinking of this, she struggled even more desperately and opened her mouth to bite the hand that covered her mouth.
