Chapter 416: Tackled
Jiang Yao ran toward the man she kicked down. He panicked seeing her approach and backed off.
“I only snatched a purse; did you have to kick me so hard?” The man in his thirties was reduced to tears. “I should have given myself up if I knew I was going to be kicked!”
Before Jiang Yao could talk, the snatch thief saw the approaching police officers and called out, “Officers! Officers! I am over here! I surrender!”
Jiang Yao stood there dumbfounded. What was wrong with the snatch thief? She had never seen a criminal actively asking for his own arrest.
The police officers looked at the skinny lady in astonishment before locking the snatch thief up in cuffs. They looked at the criminal and asked the crowd, “What happened?”
“Officers, this lady tackled him to the ground!” A pedestrian who witnessed everything pointed at Jiang Yao. “She was amazing, jump kicking the snatch thief!”
The witnesses were animated describing what unfolded. It was as if they had seen something unbelievable.
“Yaoyao.” Lu Xingzhi walked over.
Jiang Yao looked toward the direction of the voice and saw him. She hurried over when she noticed that his face looked pale. “Why did you come here? Where is Weiqi and Ruoran?”
Noticing something was off with Lu Xingzhi, she scanned his body using the Medical System. She was horrified to see a new tear on his wound. “Are you crazy? Are you oblivious about your wounds?”
Jiang Yao honestly did not expect Lu Xingzhi to come after her. When she knew what was going on, she instinctively ran over, wanting to stop the crime.
It was not until now when the crowd was talking about how brave a skinny lady was to tackle a burly snatch thief that Jiang Yao felt that she was too rash in her actions.
She realized, after everything went back to normal, that after her Force Value was activated, she subconsciously knew what to do when she used them. She acted out of instinct, as if she had been training for ages.
“Brother Lu! Jiang Yao! What is going on here!” Zhou Weiqi arrived to see Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao surrounded by a small crowd. Two police officers were there as well, together with a man held down by the officer.
“Where’s Ruoran?” Jiang Yao asked.
“She is back at the garden, I asked her not to come after us,” Zhou Weiqi replied.
Jiang Yao looked at Lu Xingzhi’s sweating and knew he was holding in the pain. She quickly told Zhou Weiqi, “There’s some problems with Brother Lu’s wounds, I am bringing him to the hospital now. Let Ruoran know; we will see you in his room.”
Jiang Yao then steadied Lu Xingzhi in her arms and walked him back to the hospital. Fortunately, it was a short five-minute walk away. Jiang Yao berated Lu Xingzhi on their way back, chiding him for neglecting his body and running after her.
