Witch, Open Your Eyes Chapter 57: Fourth night Part Eight
Un-edited so please don’t kill me if you find anything wrong, please gently commenting so I can fix it.
A scream came from the stairs entrance, followed by the sound of frantic running.
Li Sinian and Fang Daichuan stood side by side at the stairs entrance, staring there, guarding against possible situations.
“It’s on fire! It’s on fire! … Help!” Niu Xinyan sprang out from the bottom of the stairs, out of breath, screaming as she ran.
She was running while gripping her nightgown, her feet were muddy, her calf was soaked by the rain and mud, her expression was terrified and helpless, she looked like she was on the verge of collapse.
Fang Daichuan and Li Sinian glanced at each other, there was a muffled thunder outside the window.
At that moment, Li Sinian suddenly realised what might have happened.
He shot up and ran towards the small room at the end of the corridor.
Niu Xinyan’s foot slipped on the last step and she fell down in front of him.
Fang Daichuan was shocked and reflexively gave her a hand.
Through the thin silk nightgown, he noticed that Niu Xinyan’s heart was beating extremely fast and the tear stains under her eyes were extremely noticeable.
“Careful!” Fang Daichuan gritted his teeth and with his palms, he pulled Niu Xinyan’s entire body off the ground and supported her.
Niu Xinyan’s foot that slipped on the stairs was her left foot, it was swollen; her whole left foot was too limp to exert any strength.
She waved her hand, too anxious to speak, her face was deathly pale; only two terrifyingly black eyes were soaked in tears.
“Hurry!…Hurry up!” She grabbed Fang Daichuan’s forearm.
Although she couldn’t use one foot, she still ran to the room at the end of the corridor with big strides.
Every step was like stepping on cotton, limping and flailing.
Li Sinian had already run to the door.
He reached for the door and touched it.
The door was burning hot.
Not good, Li Sinian shook his head, turned his face and gave Fang Daichuan a look.
Li Sinian knows that the sound insulation is good, the people in the room can’t hear their voices, but still, he couldn’t hold back and banging on the door: “Is anyone inside?! Open the door!”
Niu Xinyan knelt down at the door and cried: “Nan Nan is inside, Nan Nan is inside! The fire started from inside.
I saw the fire from the middle of the mountain, my Nan Nan is inside!”
“Where’s the keycard?!” Fang Daichuan looked at Niu Xinyan’s reaction, became anxious and furious.
He kicked the door impatiently and shouted, “This is not the time to cry! Take the keycard out!”
As soon as he mentioned it, Niu Xinyan became even more desperate.
The young mother knelt down at the door, crying loudly, her throat clogged by her sobbing, she choked up as she spoke: “The keycard… the keycard is lost! I put it in my coat pocket, now it’s gone! It’s gone!” As she spoke, she was hopelessly digging in her pocket, rationally she knew that there was nothing there, but she still seemed to be hoping for a miracle from Heaven.
That she had just failed to notice the card that was supposed to be there in her moment of impatience.
The miracle did not happen.
Her thin coat had only one layer of linen.
She had turned the whole pocket over.
Fang Daichuan looked around for a while, but didn’t find anything handy, so he made a decisive decision and dragged Niu Xinyan up from the ground forcefully.
Niu Xinyan beat his arm frantically, wailing as she rushed towards the hot door.
Li Sinian clicked his tongue and lifted Niu Xinyan by the waist.
Niu Xinyan stomped her legs on his shoulders, her shoes stepped on Li Sinian’s side face and fell to the ground. Can’t reason with crazy, Li Sinian endured the pain and carried her on his shoulders.
“Get out of the way!” Fang Daichuan waved his hand, gesturing Li Sinian to step back, clenched his fists and kicked the metal door.
Niu Xinyan reacted and struggled slightly less.
She bit the fabric on Li Sinian’s waist and sobbing, her voice seemed like it came from hell.
“I can’t lose him again, sob…I can’t…” Niu Xinyan’s eyes were dull, she lay down on Li Sinian.
“Bang——” There was a loud noise, Fang Daichuan withdrew his legs, the metal door swayed twice, then remained motionless.
He gritted his teeth, took a few steps back before turning and jumping again, “Ha!” He roared, a heavy roundhouse kick carrying the force of thunder slammed into the door.
A subtle “…… crunch” sounded as the wood panel wrapped around the outside of the brass was shattered by the force, revealing the deformed metal pieces inside.
Not caring about the temperature of the door panel, Fang Daichuan broke the wooden panel apart hard in a few strokes, the plasterboard and wall stud for soundproofing were revealed beneath the deformed metal.
Fang Daichuan gritted his teeth and exhaled, took a few steps back and hit it with his shoulder!
The curled steel plate grazed his shoulder, half of his shoulder started bleeding.
That won’t work! Seeing this situation, Li Sinian’s heart sank.
He casually threw* the whimpering Niu Xinyan aside, Niu Xinyan covered her face and broke down in tears, hitting the back of her head against the wall in a not-so-gentle manner.
Li Sinian pulled the drapery beside her and slammed it down, pulling down the entire curtain rod that embedded in the wall.
(T/N : I check this sentence [他随手把呜咽着的牛心妍扔到一边; Tā suíshǒu bà wūyèzhe de niú xīn yán rēng dào yībiān] many times and it is ‘casually threw’ or ‘conveniently flung’ and I have to stop translating because I snickering so hard.
Sinian just ‘casually threw’ someone that he was carrying because Chuan’er got hurt.
Love both of them.)
The curtain covered Niu Xinyan’s head.
The curtain rod is made of plastic, but there is a layer of hollow stainless steel pipe in the middle.
Li Sinian pried open one end and leaned the other end on the ground.
When he stepped on it, the plastic skin on the outside peeled off, revealing the strong steel pipe inside.
Fang Daichuan obediently stepped aside, seeing Li Sinian widen the hole that he already made before with a steel pipe, revealing the billowing smoke and the weak cry of the child.
“Nan Nan!” Niu Xinyan suddenly raised her head and rushed over, “Nan Nan how are you?! Nan Nan!”
The little boy coughed and whimpered faintly: “Mom!”
Niu Xinyan’s expression instantly changed.
Li Sinian didn’t have time to figure out her expression.
He poked the steel pipe into the hole, using it as a lever and pried it hard.
The ball bearing hinges on the side of the door suddenly made a creaking sound and the nail broke out of the wooden door panel.
Fang Daichuan and Li Sinian retreated together, counting one, two, and three internally.
The two of them raised their leg at the same time, gave a low shout and kicked the door!
The door collapsed with bang.
No matter how good the soundproof is, it can’t block this kind of sound.
The door to Yang Song’s room suddenly opened, Yang Song stuck his head out and said, “What’s the matter? What’s the matter?” She was surprised then stunned when looking at the collapsed door panel, and the billowing smoke that came out of the room.
Fang Daichuan was the first to rush in, closely followed by Niu Xinyan.
Li Sinian retreated outside to inform the others to evacuate, while Yang Song stood at the doorway, looking in.
As the two crossed paths, brushing shoulders, Li Sinian slightly misplaced his footing and gave Yang Song a glance.
Yang Song’s heart could not help but tighten slightly as his gaze fixed on him.
“Nan Nan! Nan Nan, please, look at me!” Niu Xinyan’s voice came from inside the room.
Yang Song was slightly nervous as she walked in quickly, leaving Li Si Nian’s gaze behind her.
There was already a faint glimmer of light in the distance, although the days of rain had made the daylight dark like a night.
Yet the human fear of darkness always dissipates with the sound of sea birds.
The spell has been undone since daybreak has come.
With this in mind, Yang Song pushed back his inner turmoil and went into Niu Xinyan’s room.
(T/N : I have googled a lot of things but when I check the consistency for this chapter apparently there is a ball bearing hinges and butt hinges so…erm, alright you probably don’t want to know… (´･_･`)
Anyway *cough* just trying to lighten the mood, just a head up, the child abuse part is approaching and next chapter is kind of unsettling, in my humble opinion so…)
