STB Chapter 19: Fog
STB Chapter 21: Hospital

Jian Hua is in front of supermarket shelves buying biscuits and canned food.
Now that Major Zhang warned him that monsters would emerge in the Abandoned World, of course, he should take preventive measures.

——He hadn’t figured out what his abilities are, but he just had to count on it to save his life at the critical time if it’s reliable.
The people responsible for monitoring him was nervous when they saw Jian Hua drove all the way to the supermarket. He bought bone knives, a large hammer, as well as 10 awl tools. He also purchased a national map at a kiosk: Huai City, Haicheng and even a map of the North. It’s like he’s planning on committing a crime.

They worried, but since Jian Hua did not make any outrageous behavior before, they have no reason to interfere.
The team tasked to monitor Jian Hua has useful technology, so though Jian Hua paid particular attention, he didn’t find them.

It didn’t feel good to be watched by the National Secret Services. However, the other side is careful and quietly did their job. It’s a far worse feeling.

After adding mineral water to the shopping cart, Jian Hua checked out of the supermarket.
This purchase removed several pink notes. His pockets are shriveled, putting him in a dull mood. Jian Hua found the car lukewarm when he rode it. He was continuously passed over by cars along the way as he only applied even pressure on the accelerator, making him almost pass over a red light.

A young blonde man whistled this way with a defiant face. When he found out that such a secure driver is a big man and not the imaginary sister, he cursed and stepped on the accelerator to cross the intersection.
Jian Hua had no response.

It’s the guy in the other car who sweated over the young man: If someone who didn’t have a nice car, didn’t have enough speed and drove very carefully was provoked, how do you know that such an honest driver on the road is not a villain?
Villains will not write on their faces.

 To swallow a few insults, they’re probably not a nice guy, but a fugitive! To suffer in silence or not utter a reply, they’re probably not a doormat, but a psycho killer that’s going to explode one day. Why doesn’t anyone understand that!
Jian Hua appeared in the sixth volume of the book and embraced the identity behind the many unresolved mysteries of the previous volumes. Li Fei acted as the public figure, so Jian Hua didn’t have that concern. The men who tried to challenge him are buried in the Abandoned World. Even the protagonist almost died two times, and such a person is kind?

The Red Dragon members are also depressed.
Trusting in the Chat Group Records is too ridiculous. They don’t believe those fairy tales, but why don’t you find a reason to explain this series of bizarre events? Never mind, anyway it’s Zhang YaoJin’s decision. If Major Zhang said to monitor, then they have to watch well! And cautiously act!

Jian Hua glanced at the phone in front of the window glass. The caller on the screen showed “Lu Zhao.” This guy won’t call unless there is an emergency. Otherwise, he won’t dare to call since he’s afraid Jian Hua might dislike him.
After yesterday afternoon’s no reply to his message, Lu Zhao waited until now to make a phone call.

Pressing the hands-free button, Jian Hua listened to Lu Zhao’s familiar and nervous voice with great interest, “Hello, Jian Hua……where are you?”

The hand still holding the steering wheel honked the horn. The Lu Zhao who’s on the other side of the phone immediately calmed down, “You’re outside? I have an emergency, how about having lunch together?”
He spoke pathetically and hesitantly, ” Jian Hua, don’t you think what happened recently is not normal? It happened again yesterday. Everyone’s gone. I don’t think this is going to work.”

Jian Hua said with an even tone, “ I’m looking for a job, there’s no money in the house.”
The words blocked what Lu Zhao was going to say causing him to choke. He almost blurted out: the world will soon be messed up, and you’re looking for a job? Which is more important, your life or money?

With more than 20 years of restraint, he suppressed the impulse to shout. Lu Zhao tried his best to sound sincere, “ I don’t understand the circle where you work. If you lack money, I will lend it to you. Jian Hua, you and I have been buddies for years,shouldn’t it be a little thing for you to tell me?”

Lu Zhao had never advised Jian Hua to leave the film circle because of his relationship with Li Fei. He felt that the plot will develop autonomously with Jian Hua being able to recognize Li Fei. Six months ago when he heard someone is suppressing Jian Hua, he immediately made an excuse to go abroad to do business. He’s afraid that when Jian Hua felt desperate, he’d ask him to help find other jobs.
It’s not that hard to find a job, but if because of his intervention, what would he do if he missed a plot that wasn’t written on the book but was very important? If there is no Li Fei on Black Abyss, their strength would be halved.

“No matter what it is, I’ll give you the money.”
“You do business, so your funds must have a turnover.” Jian Hua rejected.

“There is no shortage of……well, I mean, there’s recently no major event, so I can give you thousands of dollars as an emergency!” A few years ago, Lu Zhao made a fortune in real estate. He is not short of money, delicious cuisine, good wine or a nice car. But in front of Jian Hua, he did not dare show it. Lu Zhao asked himself if a brother has a fortune, and he’s still working hard, this will certainly affect their feelings of brotherhood!

“Hey, I also know how to do business, and it’s a risky one. Now that the economic situation is not good, I was told that it’s just like a bird squatting by the river, waiting for a chance to fly over and fish. It must not be greedy, and must know their own ability, or let the big fish slip away……”
Lu Zhao wanted to spit out a bitter complaint. As long as he didn’t see the other person, Jian Hua is not that annoyed.

“Then I’ll count on you if I want to borrow money, let’s call it an investment OK!”
“OK! We’re brothers! Wait, where are you……hello?”

Jian Hua hung up the phone. Though Lu Zhao is angry, he’s also helpless. Because Jian Hua’s attitude to everyone is never close, not giving others the opportunity to get close to his life.
Maybe this is the BOSS’s nature.

“Forget it, after a while……” Lu Zhao turned to his cellphone calendar while muttering. Visiting him now will make Jian Hua unhappy. But wait until Huai City became complete chaos, even if Jian Hua does not come to him, he has every reason to find each other!
Lu Zhao did not know, this phone call has exposed him.

Under the order of Zhang YaoJin, every call to Jian Hua’s phone will enter the team’s surveillance.
Although they did not listen in on the phone call, in this era of network information, Lu Zhao’s name came out of the mobile number input system. The order for further investigation is waiting for approval. Zhang YaoJin’s subordinates are too busy that they felt faint headed, and temporarily not available to find Lu Zhao.

The detention center detained the suspect for the Pearl Hotel explosion. The people who put fireworks on the riverside bridge are charged with obstructing public order. Zhang YaoJin incited that to remove the scale in their eyes believing that they’re in a  “book” at the fastest speed, they must verify messages extracted from the chat groups. Relatively speaking, tracking Jian Hua is the easiest——if you ignore the danger level.

“Where is he going?” The person who performed that task alerted his companion.
Jian Hua’s car came out of the supermarket and went in the direction that looked like he’s going home, but he suddenly turned a corner.

The time was nine o’clock in the morning, and the thick fog hadn’t disappeared entirely. Because of not being able to get too close to the target, they were almost too late to switch lanes.
“Trying to get rid of us?” The driver speculated to his companions. Even if he has acting talent, they wouldn’t believe it.

After 10 minutes of complete concentration, they saw a gas station up ahead. Jian Hua drove in and lined up. Their faces became awkward.

Pulling out his last few bills and filling the car with oil, Jian Hua went back on the road. He turned on the radio. The host is talking about the highway congestion caused by the fog this morning.
After coming home, Jian Hua carried his purchases up the stairs.
The surveillance team is relieved. They were ready to find a comfortable place to sit and wait when suddenly, they saw Jian Hua walk out of the residential building again with a man on his back.

“This is?” The Red Dragon members sucked in air.
Jian Hua put down the person on his back. The person was covered with mud and unconscious.
His uniform is in rags. There is blood on his drooping face, and the best thing to recognize him is the tear-shaped mole under his eyes.

“Didn’t Major Zhang go to Haicheng? How did this happen?” The stunned members squatted.
Jian Hua put the person on the bench, and looked around with suppressed anger in his voice, “Take your Major back, or he will die!”

This time, the surveillance team had to admit that he acted like a BOSS.
Not waiting for the Red Dragon members to figure it out themselves, Jian Hua rushed back to the corridor.

Seeing Zhang YaoJin lying unconscious, the Red Dragon members finally decided that saving him is the first priority. The result is that once they came near, they found Zhang YaoJin with his lips chapped, pale, and his whole person curled up into a ball. It felt like he had a dangerous encounter in the desert.
“Quick, get some water!”

They’re not done yet when Jian Hua came down again carrying another person.
It seemed more difficult since the unconscious person is taller than Zhang YaoJin, but in the same dangerous situation: faint breath and clothes in a mess as if cut by a sharp weapon.

“Geng Tian?” The Red Dragon members recognized that this is the bodyguard of the actor Li Fei, and they suddenly looked at each other.
Another one that should be in Haicheng.

Jian Hua didn’t care about Zhang YaoJin’s life and death, but if something happened to Major Zhang, he’d be in a lot of trouble.
He was carrying something upstairs when he saw the two people lying on his doorstep. They were in an unconscious state, and it’s as if they run away from Africa. One of them is a Major from the National Secret Services which made Jian Hua speechless.
“At the hospital, give them some glucose and saline!” Jian Hua threw Geng Tian into his car. He said without looking back, “You should be good if you say that he was trapped below a mine and suffered excessive hunger and thirst.”

Red Dragon members: ……You seem to have a lot of experience.
Jian Hua hit the accelerator and drove the car towards Old Cheng’s clinic door.

“Hey, what is this situation?” Old Cheng is surprised.
“Save him! He hasn’t eaten in days!”
Old Cheng stared. He immediately remembered what happened to Jian Hua, and apart from anything else, let the nurse to quickly prepare some bottles. Old Cheng took out a stethoscope and groped to see the situation.

“There’s a trauma!”
Geng Tian has cuts in his clothes like he’s been attacked by some kind of animal.

“Is this like the danger you encountered with the backpacker? Why didn’t you take him to the hospital?” The nurse inserted a sentence. Such a big problem, their small clinic cannot accept.
“First, emergency treatment. We’ll call 120 later.” Old Cheng frowned, then he nodded, “He’s unconscious due to thirst and starvation, and fatigue too.”

Old Cheng suspected that he fought with a group of mad cats looking at all the scratches.
“He can’t go to the hospital?” Old Cheng asked Jian Hua in a low voice.
“This……” Jian Hua thought, before taking out his phone and calling Li Fei’s broker.

The author has something to say:
Jian Hua ⊙v⊙: Tell the movie actor, his bodyguard is in my hands
Broker: Excuse me?

Since I can't stand not having updates to my favorite novels, I've volunteered myself to go through the jungle called Google Translate as I look for clues to understand the jumbled mess called English it spits out whenever I feed it with other eastern languages.
