I Have 108 Older Sisters - Chapter 51
There was someone trapped in the fire? Yu Tian did not even think twice and wanted to rush into the sea of fire to save his colleagues. Chu Qing pulled him back. She definitely could not let him take the risk. If anything happened to him, the family would not be able to protect themselves.
She grabbed Yu Tian’s arm tightly and said anxiously, “You can’t go. Don’t forget your identity. There are so many firefighters here. The people trapped inside will definitely be rescued!”
Yu Tian did not want to hear this at all. Even if he could not save others, he had to save Professor Yan. The old man was someone that he had gone through so much trouble to invite here. If he were to be burned to death, would he still have the face to meet the people from his alma mater?
As he spoke, anf explosion occurred in the middle of the building. The flames rose more than ten meters away. The entire building could collapse at any time.
Dozens of high-pressure water pillars were attacking the flames, but they were still unable to suppress them.
He could not waste any more time. Yu Tian broke free from Chu Qing’s hand and snatched an asbestos coat from a fireman’s hand. He put it on his body and rushed into the fire.
The firemen who were fighting the fire were all shocked. The people trapped could not even come out even if they wanted to. How could someone still take the initiative to rush in? Chu Qing saw that she could not stop Yu Tian anymore, so she immediately made a call. Soon, the firefighter commander received the order to ensure Yu Tian’s safety no matter what.
The commander immediately gave the order and shouted, “All high-pressure water guns, follow that person and protect him for as long as you can. Order the firefighters who are still in the building to cooperate with him to save people!”
Yu Tian acted quickly. He took the stairs and arrived at the tenth floor in a few leaps. Yu Tian knew that Professor Yan was working on this floor, and he usually worked overtime here.
He rushed into the office area, and everywhere he saw was flame. The middle of the floor had already collapsed, and the high-temperature asbestos coat was making a sizzling sound. Yu Tian did not care about anything else. He moved and kicked away the things that blocked him until he rushed into Professor Yan’s office. However, he was still a step too late. Half of Professor Yan’s body was burnt to a crisp and he was no longer breathing.
Yu Tian gritted his teeth and took off his asbestos coat to cover Professor Yan’s body. Even if he could not save him, he had to protect Professor Yan’s body.
At this moment, the building began to shake violently. It looked like it was about to collapse.
Yu Tian did not have time to mourn Professor Yan’s death, and rushed to the thirteenth floor as fast as he could.
The fire here was even more fierce.
Yu Tian shouted, “Is anyone there? Is there anyone else?” As soon as he said that, amid the flames, a person whose body was burning appeared, screaming in pain.
Upon closer inspection, it was Old Han. Yu Tian wanted to go over to save him, but Old Han collapsed and did not move again. He wanted to rush over, but he was pulled back by the firefighters.
One of the firefighters shouted, “We have to retreat immediately. This building is about to collapse. It’s very dangerous. Come with us quickly!”
Yu Tian did not waste any more time. He followed the firefighters and began to retreat downstairs. However, they had only retreated to the fifth floor when there was a loud crack on the stairs.
The concrete structure, which had been softened by the high temperature, could not withstand the gravity and broke completely. Even the firefighters, who had undergone professional training, were scared out of their wits.
Yu Tian, on the other hand, was very calm. The first thing he saw was the window not far away, which was still emitting thick smoke. He grabbed onto the firefighters with one hand and jumped out of the window.
Just as he was about to fall to the ground, Yu Tian used Falling Petals from the Yu family’s cultivation technique and landed on the ground. Although the fall was a little painful, it was fortunate that he did not suffer any injuries.
The two firefighters were a little stunned. It felt like a dream. Before they could thank Yu Tian, the building behind them collapsed with a loud bang. Smoke and dust covered the sky and earth.
The firefighters grabbed Yu Tian and hugged each other as they fell to the ground.
By the time the surroundings quieted down, it was already more than ten minutes later. Amid the smoke and dust, the building that was more than ten stories tall had already turned into ruins.
Yu Tian returned to the safety zone. Chu Xin and Chu Rou had both come. Chu Qing did not say a word as she punched Yu Tian in the chest. Her heart ached as she cursed angrily, “I told you not to show off, but you did not listen to me. Are you trying to anger me to death?”
Knowing that she was concerned about him, Yu Tian was not angry. He quietly sat at the side and picked up a bottle of mineral water to drink.
Chu Xin sighed and said slowly, “Yu Tian, why are you so impulsive? Do you know how special you are? Do you know how precious your life is?”
Yu Tian said indifferently, “My life is precious, but other people’s lives aren’t precious? Professor Yan, Old Han, and so many employees have died. How about their lives?”
At this moment, the firefighter commander came to the front of the crowd, and said in a low voice, “The fire wasn’t due to natural causes. It was man-made. Moreover, before setting the fire, someone cut off the fire-fighting equipment and even placed a vibration device in the middle of the building. Otherwise, the building would not have collapsed!”
Someone set the fire? Yu Tian gritted his teeth. The first two people that came to his mind were Lei Yi and Shao Mingzun. These were his two biggest enemies. Other than them, no one else had the courage to do so.
“If you really did it, I’ll make sure you’re buried with the dead.”
At the same time, on the roof of a high-rise building in the distance, Shao Mingzun excitedly threw the binoculars to Du Jiaran. He lit a cigarette and took a deep puff. Then, he said excitedly, “I put some fireworks and it looked good. Yu Tian, oh Yu Tian, this is my gift to you. Let’s take it slow. I have a big gift for you later!”
Du Jiaran also smiled excitedly and said, “Master, this is enough to give Yu Tian a headache. But will Yu Tian think that it was us who did it?”
Shao Mingzun exhaled a mouthful of thick smoke and turned around with a limp. He said proudly, “So what if he thinks about it? In terms of cultivation, I’m no match for him. He’s just a kid. I don’t even care about him.
“When the news comes out tomorrow, we’ll visit him and offer our condolences. Then, you can tell Old Black and the others to stir up Chu Qing’s shopping mall for me!”
Du Jiaran chuckled and said, “Master, you’re the best. I’m completely convinced!”
Shao Mingzun threw the cigarette butt away and said gloomily, “Remember, the game of Jianghu isn’t about friendship. It’s about who’s ruthless. Yu Tian is ruthless but he’s useless. I’m just playing with him now. When I’m done playing with him, I’ll take his life!”
As expected, he was the boss of the Black Gate. He was really ruthless. Du Jiaran cursed in his heart and left the building with Shao Mingzun.
The next morning, the news of the fire at Xinghe Technology was broadcasted on the television.
Yu Tian only took a few glances before he got up and was about to leave home. He had to go to Professor Yan, Old Han, and a few employees’ homes to visit their families and offer condolences money to them. That way, he would feel better.
At this time, Lei Yi came with a few followers.
