Xu Yan and Dong Xuebing could hear Chaochao’s shouts.
Xu Yan quickly rushed forward, and Dong Xuebing followed closely.
The few soldiers looked at Political Commissar Liu, waiting for his instructions. He frowned and did not say anything. Xu Yan’s position and authority are higher than his, and he does not want to worsen things.
Xu Yan reached the entrance. “Move aside!”
The soldiers guarding the door stepped forward to stop her.
Xu Yan immediately twisted the soldier’s arm, threw him aside, and pushed the door open.
The room was dark, and the lights were off.
“Mum!” A boy ran out from the darkness and hugged Xu Yan. He cried. “Sob… sob… why are you so late? I am scared.”
Xu Yan hugged her son. “Don’t cry. It’s alright now. Everything is fine.”
“Mum… sob… sob….” Chaochao cried. “They hit us! They hit us!”
Xu Yan was looking terrible. “Don’t worry. I am here.”
Chaochao’s classmates also ran out. “Auntie Xu! Save us!”
Xu Yan looked at them. “How are you all? Are you all hurt?”
Chaochao shouted. “Those soldiers beat us up. Look at my face. They hit me with their rifle’s butt. It’s all swollen now.”
Dong Xuebing saw the few kids’ conditions. Chaochao’s face was swelling and had an obvious bruise. The rest were also looking terrible. A girl had a long scratch on her neck, and they were pale. All of them looked scared and worried. After all, they were kids and had never experienced such terrifying events. He was furious.
How can they beat up these kids?!
Are they still humans?!
Xu Yan walked out with her son. “Who hit them?!”
The kids stood behind Xu Yan and stared at the soldiers.
Political Commissar Liu walked forward with his men. “I explained earlier, Chief Xu. They had trespassed into the restricted zone and resisted arrest. They might be injured in the process.”
Chaochao shouted angrily. “Bullshit! You all hit us in the vehicle and the room!” He pointed to his face. “This injury is sustained here! We did not resist at that time!”
Political Commissar Liu and a few officers stared at Chaochao coldly.
Xu Yan looked at them. “Political Commissar Liu, can you give me an explanation?”
Political Commissar Liu replied coldly. “I had given you an explanation earlier.”
“I will settle this score with you all later.” Xu Yan held her son’s hand. “Let’s go.”
Before Xu Yan and the kids could take a step, the soldiers behind Political Commissar Liu rushed forward and blocked them. More than a dozen soldiers at the back also took a step forward.
Xu Yan narrowed her eyes. “What is the meaning of this?”
Political Commissar Liu replied calmly. “No one is allowed to leave without Commander Liu’s order. I’m sorry, Chief Xu. You cannot bring them out.”
Xu Yan asked. “What are you all trying to do?”
Political Commissar Liu replied. “I am waiting for orders from the higher-ups. Trespassing in a restricted military zone is a serious offence.”
Around twenty soldiers had surrounded them.
Chaochao was frightened when he saw the soldiers surrounding them. “Mum….”
Dong Xuebing patted Chaochao’s shoulder. “You are a grown-up. What’s there to be afraid of? What can happen with us around?”
Chaochao looked at Dong Xuebing.
Xu Yan said. “He…. Is Uncle Dong.”
Although Chaochao and his classmates felt Dong Xuebing looked a few years older than them, they still greeted him. “Uncle Dong.”
Political Commissar Liu and his officers looked at Dong Xuebing, thinking, ‘who are you to speak here?’
“Why are you all looking at me?” Dong Xuebing looked at Political Commissar Liu and his men. Two soldiers immediately raised their guns and pointed at him. They felt he was disrespecting their officers and wanted to scare him. But Dong Xuebing was amused. He turned to Xu Yan. “Did you see that? These people only know how to scare people with their guns.”
Xu Yan laughed.
Dong Xuebing looked at the two soldiers and pointed at his head. “It seems you all don’t know anything other than pointing your guns at others. Do you know how to use your gun? Did the military teach you? You should switch off your safety first. How are you going to scare others with the safety on? You! You are not aiming properly. You should be pointing at my head. Yes…. That’s right. Squeeze the trigger. Do I still need to teach you what to do next? I am waiting.”
Chaochao and his classmates were stunned.
Dong Xuebing waited for a few seconds and saw the soldiers were not doing anything. He turned to Political Commissar Liu. “Political Commissar Liu, how did you all train your soldiers? They should fire immediately after they raise their guns. Why are they holding up their rifles and not doing anything?”
Political Commissar Liu was furious and thought to himself. ‘Who are you to interfere? Even your Chief Xu does not dare to speak to us like this!’ He turned to Xu Yan. “Chief Xu, I am telling you again. No one is allowed to leave.”
Dong Xuebing interrupted. “What if we insist on taking them with us?”
Political Commissar Liu was furious. “You can try, brat!”
Dong Xuebing laughed and looked at Xu Yan. “Sister Xu, you heard him. What do you want me to do? Oh, let me count how many of them first. One… three… five… ten… they have twenty men. Quite a lot.”
Xu Yan looked at him. “Can you handle it?”
Dong Xuebing laughed. “Are you joking? Even if they have twenty more men, it’s a piece of cake.”
Xu Yan relaxed after hearing what Dong Xuebing said. “Don’t go too hard on them, and try not to injure them badly. We just want to leave.”
Dong Xuebing hesitated. “It’s hard to go lightly on them. How about I use one hand? I can control my strength better with one hand, and they will not be injured too seriously.”
“Ok.” Xu Yan replied. “I will thank you again after we leave this place.”
“Don’t mention it. This is what I should do.”
