C4 Mysterious companion
Looking at the wad of money, the driver hesitated for a moment, then returned my wallet, phone and watch back to me. Without another word, he yelled at the gas pedal and my heart followed the car all the way to the South Ridge.
It was dark, and the dull, steady hum of the car finally exhausted me. Despite the lack of sleep, my eyelids were still heavy, and I forced myself to look around.
It was only then that I began to notice the people sitting in the back of the car, and I began to mutter to myself.
I was in a hurry to go home because I was worried about my father's safety. But why would the people behind me want to go to the South Ridge at this time? Furthermore, from the driver's expression, I could tell that the person at the back had no intention of going to the South Ridge before I got on the car.
I kept looking at him in the rearview mirror, but the interior was so dark that I couldn't make out anything except a vague figure.
The night was dark, and in the blink of an eye, the taxi was on the highway. In the car, besides the buzzing of the engine, I could only hear my own breathing.
"I've been driving for more than ten years, but this is the first time I've encountered such a situation. I can't believe I've encountered such a long distance in the middle of the night."
"Is that so? Maybe it's fate! " The person behind him asked with a carefree voice that was neither too fast nor too slow.
I looked in the rearview mirror again.
"Little brother, are you in a hurry to get there in the middle of the night?" The driver focused his attention on what was in front of him. It seemed like he was talking to me.
I nodded and answered with a light "hmm". From time to time, I would take out my cell phone and dial my father's number.
"There's no need to dial. The person is on the road, it's useless even if we dial him." A candid voice rang out.
However, how could I have heard it? My heart was as if it was filled with wild grass. No matter how I sat, I couldn't feel comfortable.
"Big brother, you didn't plan to go anywhere before, why did you decide to go there so quickly?" the driver asked the man behind him.
"Haha." The person in the back laughed, "I was preparing to go tomorrow, but I didn't expect to meet you, so I took the road."
"What a coincidence." The driver took out a cigarette and handed it to me before handing it to the person behind me.
"No rush, you can smoke!"
The driver smiled faintly and lit a cigarette. After a cloud of smoke passed, I felt a little better and leaned my head against the glass, thinking about myself.
"The road ahead isn't easy, little brother, you have to be careful." At this time, the person at the back spoke again, reminding the driver.
"Don't worry, safety comes first when we're outside. I know that." The driver chuckled and said disapprovingly.
After hearing what the person behind me said, I got a little curious. We were on the highway and there were very few cars on the road, almost to the point of closing our eyes. How could he just say that?
Just as I was thinking about this, a large truck appeared in our sight. It was just that the truck was traveling at a relatively slow speed, around 80 yards at most.
"Surpass him." The person at the back calmly replied.
I looked at the driver with narrowed eyes. It was easy to overtake a truck just by taxiing.
Watching as the truck slowly moved to the back, I thought to myself, "This guy really has a lot to do. He can hide when he meets a big truck, it's very normal to be able to surpass it. Do you still need to say anything?"
But just then, there was a loud bang and I followed the rearview mirror of the car and saw that the big truck had gone crazy, and finally ran across the flower bed and into the opposite driveway.
I suddenly thought to myself, 'What a coincidence! Based on what I saw just now, if we were even a few seconds later, we would have been screwed!'
The driver's face didn't look too good either. He was clearly frightened as well. He forced himself to remain calm and said, "Big brother, you really are a god. How do you know something will happen to that truck?"
The person behind him smiled faintly and said, "I am not sure if there is anything wrong with the truck, but I know our journey is not peaceful. You can be more careful."
I was confused by what I heard. This trip, regardless of whether it is peaceful or not, being careful is inevitable. Thinking to this point, I couldn't help but feel that the person at the back likes to deliberately mystify things a little. At the same time, I secretly guessed that it was just a coincidence.
The car went on for a while, but there were no other cars around, and the road was in good condition. I glanced at the dashboard, which was now 120 yards away.
However, at this moment, I wanted to return home as soon as possible. I could only complain in my heart that this car was a little slow, so how could I care if it was fast or not?
"Master, what's that on your roof?" At this moment, the person behind him spoke again.
Hearing that, the master instinctively looked towards the roof of the car.
Right at this moment, I suddenly notice a person appearing in front of me. He is walking slowly on the highway.
"Be careful!" I exclaimed.
However, the teacher was currently focused on the roof and didn't notice the person in front of the car. With a swoosh, the car unexpectedly passed through that person's body without the slightest movement.
"What's wrong?" When the driver heard my exclamation, he was shocked and couldn't help but to ask resentfully.
"It's fine, I was wrong." I pretended to be calm as I waved my hand, but there was a storm in my heart. I could clearly see that the person was definitely not an illusion, but as for why the car would pass through his body for no reason, I wasn't sure.
However, I am sure that if the driver sees this person, he will flip the car over at best and destroy the car at worst.
Could it be another coincidence?
No matter how he looked at the person behind him, he couldn't be a curious person. Could it be that he was attracting the driver's attention just now?
For a moment I was more curious about the man behind me.
However, a moment later, a slight snoring sound came from the back seat, as if the person had fallen asleep.
I took the opportunity to turn my head to take a few glances, but strangely, the angle of this person's body was just right. His entire body was lying in the shadows, and I couldn't see clearly whether he was male or female, let alone his appearance.
"Little brother, this brother is really godly. If not for his reminder just now, who knows what might have happened." The driver chuckled, but his voice was trembling, and there was a lingering fear in his voice.
I grunted, thinking about the mysterious man in the back seat.
After a few more hours of driving, I pulled out my cell phone and checked that it was already past four in the morning. The driver yawned, slowed down, and when I looked around, I saw that it was a service area.
"I'll go wash my face. You guys should also take a rest." The driver looked tired, which made me worry.
I got out of the car, washed my face, and bought a pack of cigarettes in the service area. I thought about talking to the driver later.
When the driver came back, the man in the back suddenly stood up and said, "Master, you should rest. I'll drive!"
"This." "Is that okay?" The driver hesitated.
"Don't worry, it's alright. I won't risk my life to make a joke." That person laughed mischievously as he switched seats with the driver.
It was only then that I could clearly see the man's face. He was in his forties, with a squarish face and bright eyes. He was dressed in casual clothes, and he was well-proportioned and well-mannered.
Although I was a bit embarrassed by his words, but somehow, I felt especially close to him when I saw his smile. I didn't realize that my embarrassment had lessened by quite a bit, so I awkwardly smiled and didn't say anything more.
This person's driving is very stable, but his speed isn't slow at all. There were several times when I saw him drive the car to 150 yards. However, the driver was already asleep on the back seat, otherwise, he would probably ask me to drive.
And, to my surprise, when he slowed down occasionally, either he had a speed gauge or a car appeared in front of him.
I can still understand the speed gauge, but how did he know a car was going to appear in the dark?
I turned my head to look at him and saw that he had a faint smile on his face as he looked forward. He had a very relaxed expression and didn't seem to be worried that the speed of his car had already reached one hundred and fifty.
But at that moment, another person appeared in front of the car and waved at us.
I was immediately shocked. I estimated the distance to be no more than 150 meters. It was impossible for me to stop safely. The only option left was to avoid it.
However, with such a fast speed, it would be great if he dodged it well. If he didn't avoid it well, he might flip over at any time.
For a moment I clenched my fists, my heart in my chest, my eyes fixed on the man.
To my surprise, however, the man showed no sign of slowing down. Instead, he increased the throttle again, as if he wanted to kill the man in the taxi.
I closed my eyes.
However, at this time, there was a swoosh. The carriage passed through that person's body without any signs of passing. It was as if the carriage had passed through a mass of air.
I opened my mouth wide in surprise. How could that be possible? I could see that person very clearly. How could he be fine after passing through my body?
I couldn't help but look back, but without the glare of the headlights, it was so dark I couldn't see anything.
"Sometimes what you see with your eyes may not be real, but instead you make a mess." There was a faint smile on the man's face; he was completely emotionless.
"That person." I couldn't help but suck in a breath of cold air.
"Hehe." This person didn't reply and only sneered twice before remaining silent.
"Take a rest. You can be busy when the sun rises." At this moment, this person suddenly spoke with a strange smile on his face.
When I heard this, I was shocked. I wanted to ask him, but my eyelids suddenly felt heavy. Unknowingly, I fell asleep.
