Shen Yan followed by Fu Hang’s side, and her eyes were fixed on the steps. She could swear that this was the most difficult step she had ever taken.
In fact, Shen Yan could only see two or three steps nearby. Although the snow on the steps had been swept away, it was soon covered again by the heavy snow.
Thus, it was easier to climb up the mountain than down.
Fu Hang stood on the steps. He looked at the snow-covered steps and felt hesitant.
There would definitely be no problem if he went down the mountain himself. However, it would be a different case if he wanted to bring Shen Yan down with him.
Although the distance was not too far, the risk factor was very high.
The staff and tourists looked at the snow that was getting increasingly heavier and began to hesitate.
Fu Hang then looked at his bodyguards at the side and gestured at them.
One of the bodyguards tactfully handed the rope to Fu Hang. Fu Hang neatly tied the rope to him and Shen Yan.
“I don’t need this.” Shen Yan didn’t think it was that difficult to go down the mountain. Moreover, she didn’t want to be so close to Fu Hang right now.
“Don’t be stubborn.” Fu Hang paid no heed to her refusal and directly tied the rope to Shen Yan’s waist.
Fu Hang had prepared well before he ascended the mountain. Thus, he brought a lot of rope with him. Everyone tied themselves to the ropes before going down the mountain together.
Shen Yan walked very slowly, as she was worried that she might accidentally slip. Just as Shen Yan stood up, she heard a scream from behind.
When she turned around, Shen Yan saw a child fall down the stairs. She went to catch the child immediately.
Ultimately, there was a lot of snow on the stairs now. After the child fell down, he began to chuckle uncontrollably after Shen Yan helped him up. Luckily, he was fine. The child thanked Shen Yan and then climbed up the stairs.
When Shen Yan stood up, she then realized that her ankle was hurting. She could not help but frown.
Fu Hang noticed that Shen Yan stood motionless. He walked to her side and questioned, “What’s wrong?” Shen Yan raised her right foot and didn’t dare to put it on the ground. She thought for a moment and said, “Why don’t I stay on the mountain? I…”
Before Shen Yan could finish her words, Fu Hang carried her on his back.
“Put me down!” Shen Yan really didn’t want to accept any more favors from Fu Hang. He had given her a lot of evidence against the Fu family and helped her to take them down. Now, he came here to save her from this snowstorm.
“Don’t move, otherwise I’ll fall.”
Fu Hang’s words successfully calmed Shen Yan down. Shen Yan lay obediently on Fu Hang’s back and looked at the stairs that were once again covered by the heavy snow. It was clearly such a dangerous path, yet she felt at ease. Shen Yan felt that this was abnormal as if Fu Hang had hypnotized her.
The news of Shen Yan being trapped at the top of the mountain had been spread by someone. Shen Yan was now trending on the internet.
Tong Guang’s face turned pale when he saw the news, and he called Lu Yan swiftly.
It was three o’clock in the morning, and Lu Yan was sleeping. When he received the call, he woke up in a daze.
“What’s the matter?” Lu Yan pressed his temples and asked.
“President Lu, bad news. Something happened to Miss Shen!”
Lu Yan woke up instantly after hearing Tong Guang’s words. He sat up and asked with a frown, “What happened?” Tong Guang told him about the news of Shen Yan being trapped at the top of the mountain.
“Come and pick me up now. We’ll go look for her,” Lu Yan said without hesitation.
“President Lu, the people from the organization are here to look for you.”
Hearing Tong Guang’s words, Lu Yan’s brows knitted tighter and tighter. He couldn’t help but grab his phone tightly. “What do you know?”
“The organization is planning to arrange a mission for you. The difficulty of the mission is S-rank.” Tong Guang spilled everything he knew to Lu Yan.
Lu Yan sat on the sofa with a complicated expression. “Ask them to send someone else.”
“President Lu, this is a mission for the leader of the organization. Do you think it’s appropriate to let someone else do it?” Tong Guang asked in return.
Lu Yan was at a loss for words.
