心锁 7

 

小吉寻声找去,那是厨房。一个男人正背对他,手里挥着一把斧子,疯狂地往地上砸去。

一下,两下… 小吉的心狂跳不已。她背贴着墙壁,一步步蹭进房间。

看清楚了!男人砸的是地上的一把金色的小锁!

锁开了。男人低头掀起木门,跳了进去。

转眼间,他吃力地抱着一个女人上来。

他把女人轻轻放在地上,摇晃她,大声叫她的名字。

小吉惊恐地看着这一切,几乎连呼吸都快停止。

当男人抬起头,小吉能看清他的脸时,恐惧最终占胜了她。

Lock of the Heart 7

Xiaoji followed the sound to the kitchen. A man who was having his back to her was wielding an axe on the ground madly.

One, two … Xiaoji’s heart was beating madly. As quiet as she could, she tiptoed into the room leaning her back against the wall.

It was clearer now! The man was hacking at a little golden lock on the floor!

As soon as the lock was knocked open, the man opened the wooden door and jumped in.

In a brief moment, he emerged again holding a woman in his arm.

He laid the woman on the ground gently, shook her, and cried out her name.

Xiaoji watched the whole thing with horror to the point that she felt she could hardly breathe.

When the man raised up his head, Xiaoji finally recognized his face. She was overwhelmed by horror.
