"Mhm. Rest assured; I'll definitely bring our child back to safety."

She smiled at him, turned around, and looked up at the woman and her son before sucking a deep breath and walking into the abandoned building.

Watching her leave, the man could not help but want to chase after her.

However, before his hands could touch her, he was stopped by the commotion on the rooftop.

Bang! His son's shoes were thrown from above. It was a clear warning for him not to follow his woman.

His eyes turned dark and frightening at that as they emitted cold cruelty.

"Wait here for me and don't follow me up." Pei Ge looked at the shoes, which had been thrown down by Qiao Jingyun, in fear, and then turned to address the man.

"Rest assured; I'll definitely bring our child back to safety."

Her voice was determined and resolute.

He could not help but feel… that the current Pei Ge did not put him at ease at all…

He opened his mouth, wanting to tell her not to go up there, but when he saw the determination in her eyes, he did not say anything to object in the end.

"…You be careful."

"Yes, relax."

With that, she stepped into the abandoned building by herself.

When she was out of sight, the man slammed his fists against a nearby wall.

"Qiao Jingyun…"

He truly hated his past self so much right now. If he found out the truth earlier and if he had not let the woman off back then, then none of this would have happened and be happening…

No matter what he thought now, Pei Ge still made her way up alone.

Although her hands were firmly bound, it did not affect her posture.

One step after another, she quickly made her way up.

Only god knew how anxious she was inside.

Despite knowing that what awaited her above was that woman's revenge, she still felt no fear.

The only thing she feared was something happening to her son.

As she thought of that, her steps quickened further.

It was clearly a very tall building, yet she reached the rooftop very fast.

Stopping in her tracks, she looked at the huge door before her. There was only relief and happiness on her face, and not a trace of fear could be found in it when she knocked on the door.

Knock, knock, knock!

Qiao Jingyun's face brightened in elation when she heard this knocking sound.

She eyed the boy before smugly telling him, "Aiya, my good son, seeing how pitiful you are, I'll definitely let you and your detestable mom reunite in hell together! Ha ha!"

This maddening laughter made Ji Chi purse his lips tightly as he made a silent plea inside—

Mommy, hurry and leave…

Alas, both did not share telepathy. Still, even if she knew his thoughts, she would not leave.

Click!

The moment a crack opened in the door, Pei Ge felt only immense relief.

Ping An, mommy is here to bring you home…
