Zheng Wei greeted the baptism of these eyes without expression, and his heart was full of agony.
He didn’t want to look into these eyes, but for some reason, he dared not avoid his own eyes.


This opening remark is really stupid.
As soon as the words were spoken, Zheng Wei regretted it.
He didn’t expect Julian to answer him, he just wanted to ease the embarrassment.
But now he feels even more awkward.

Just when Zheng Wei couldn’t help but want to hide, Julian spoke and broke the long and unbearable eye contact.

Julian’s voice is not pleasant.
Unlike his delicate appearance, Julian’s voice is a bit hoarse.
It should be because he doesn’t speak often, and his pronunciation is also a bit strange, similar to a child’s mumble.

Faced with this unexpected response, Zheng Wei was stunned for a moment, not knowing how to react.

“What are you guys doing?” Old John just noticed that the two were still standing in place.

“Zheng, what are you dazing about? Quickly help Julian and let’s leave here quickly.”Old John’s shout woke Zheng Wei up like a dream.
He quickly reached out to Julian and held his arm.

“Let’s go.” Zheng Wei smiled at Julian and lowered his head, leading him toward Old John’s position.

He gently put his hand on Julian’s elbow, and Zheng Wei’s eyelids drooped slightly.
Even through a layer of clothing, he could feel the strong and powerful muscles under his hand, which didn’t seem like the arm of someone who had been in a hospital ward for a long time.

Zheng Wei couldn’t help but look at Julian beside him.
Unlike his nervousness and anxiety, Julian was calm.
His expression was gentle and there were no signs of madness.

Under John’s guidance, Zheng Wei supported Julian and they entered the fire escape.
As soon as they entered, they heard the noise downstairs.
Everyone on each floor was evacuating nervously.

The people on the top few floors had already left, so the three of them were able to come down smoothly.

Time was passing second by second, and it had been less than three minutes since the slaughter began.
Zheng Wei felt extremely nervous, and the hand placed on Julian Cole’s body was stiff.

As if sensing his unease, Julian Cole turned his head to look at Zheng Wei and smiled at him.

His smile was like any other smile that someone his age would have, clean and sunny.
He looked at Zheng Wei with a kind and comforting expression in his eyes.

Dazzled by his smile, Zheng Wei hesitated for a moment.
Was this really the “devil’s son” who would really bloodbath the hospital? He couldn’t help but question the system in his mind, wondering if it had made a mistake.

“Question exceeds the answer range.” A line of big characters appeared in Zheng Wei’s mind, along with a countdown of 2 minutes and 12 seconds.

Zheng Wei, “…”

After some reflection, Zheng Wei decided to trust the system.
However, he couldn’t help but sneak glances at Julian Cole.

Although Zheng Wei thought he was being discreet, his peeping technique was not very sophisticated.
There were several times when he met Julian Cole’s gaze.

Sensing Zheng Wei’s scrutiny, Julian Cole did not show any dissatisfaction or other emotions.
He just smiled slightly, with a relaxed expression that showed he didn’t care.

Zheng Wei, “…” Is this really the serial killer who killed 13 people? I always feel like the system is fooling me.

Julian Cole is only 20 years old.
Since the age of six, he has spent 14 years in this small room at St.
Philip’s Hospital, facing all kinds of curious humans.

What was he doing at the age of 20? If those things hadn’t happened 14 years ago, what would Julian be like now?

Thinking like this, a soft feeling of inappropriateness suddenly rose in Zheng Wei’s heart.

The three of them walked to the 13th floor, and more and more people appeared.
With over 400 people consisting of doctors and patients in St.
Philip’s Hospital, this number was not small for the relatively narrow fire escape staircase.

“I’m exhausted, damn staircase.” Standing on the 13th floor and looking down at the crowd on the floor below, Old John finally felt a little relieved.
He stopped to catch his breath and unbuttoned the first two buttons of his police uniform.

These stairs were not very friendly to the overweight Old John.
He was already sweating profusely and his police uniform was soaked with sweat after only five floors down.

“There are a lot of people ahead, let’s wait here for a while until the crowd thins out before we go down,” Zheng Wei said to the panting Old John.

Old John leaned against the wall and nodded vigorously, fully agreeing with the proposal.

Zheng Wei helped Old John and Julian stand on the platform between the 13th and 12th floors, watching the crowd below.
Zheng Wei’s proposal was not only for Old John’s benefit but also for another reason.

He wanted Julian to stay away from the crowd.
There were less than two minutes left before Julian would go on a killing spree, and if he suddenly erupted in the crowd, no one would be able to stop him.
Zheng Wei couldn’t even stop him, let alone he himself wasn’t that powerful.

However, how could Julian carry out a massacre with his hands and feet shackled? Zheng Wei couldn’t help but look Julian up and down.
The handcuffs and ankle cuffs were all fine, and there seemed to be no problem at all.

Sensing Zheng Wei’s gaze, Julian tilted his head and smiled at him.
Then he raised his cuffed hands and pointed to the pocket on his chest.

“Is there something in there?” Zheng Wei asked, watching his movements.
The pocket was bulging, as if there was something inside.

Julian nodded.

“Are you asking me to help you take out something from your pocket?” guessed Zheng Wei.
Julian nodded again with a calm expression.

“Okay, I’ll do it.” Zheng Wei said cautiously, after getting Julian’s permission.
He reached into the pocket and took out something from it.

It was a small doll with the size of a palm.
Though small, the doll had everything from hair to facial features, and even hands and feet.
Its hair was sewn with black thick cotton thread, its eyes were made of buttons, and its mouth was stitched with two black lines, forming a smiling face.

Though not very refined, the doll was quite cute.

“Here you go,” Zheng Wei didn’t know the meaning behind the doll, he just took a quick look and handed it to Julian.
But Julian didn’t take it.
He pushed the doll towards Zheng Wei, then smiled.

“It’s for you,” Julian said in a somewhat unclear voice.
He looked at Zheng Wei, his eyes and eyebrows slightly curved, and his lips gently raised.

Zheng Wei was stunned.
He looked at the doll in his hand and then back at Julian in front of him, unsure of what expression to make.

Julian smiled at him, his icy blue eyes sparkling.
Zheng Wei was at a loss, but he lowered his head and looked at the little doll in his hand, the small black-haired figure smiling dumbly.

The numbers in his mind continued to decrease, and the time until the system’s predicted massacre drew closer.

Looking at the smiling face, Zheng Wei inexplicably felt a sense of regret.
He sighed in his heart and put the small figure in his pocket.

“Thank you, I really like it,” he said, looking up at Julian with a smile.
But there was a hint of sadness in his eyes that he couldn’t explain.

The small doll and the surgical knife lay together in Zheng Wei’s pocket.
He held the surgical knife in one hand and lightly placed his other hand on Julian’s arm, his expression becoming serious.
