My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 172
Not only were there many pedestrians who had stopped to watch, but there were also many drivers around due to the congested traffic caused by the accident.
Upon hearing Ashlyn’s voice, those three men immediately picked up their speed.
Glancing at the children trapped inside the van, Ashlyn was then presented with a dilemma. Should I go after the bad guys first or should I save the children first?
Just then, the van started emitting an ear-piercing screech. Thick acrid fumes then began billowing from beneath the bonnet.
And it seemed as though there were several sparks as well!
Damn it! If this were to carry on, there would be a really high chance that the van will blow up.
Gnashing her teeth together, she turned and began walking towards the van. By then, two passers-by had already managed to extricate one of the children from the wreckage.
There were still three children trapped inside, out of which two were unconscious and trapped in the narrow space below the seats. The child who was still conscious looked hurt as well. At that moment, he was pinned underneath a chair and was bawling his eyes out in fear.
“Make way!” Ashlyn barked at those two men as she walked over.
Although they were confused, they complied and made way upon seeing the frosty expression on her face.
The slim woman raised one of her slender legs and aimed a swift kick at the chair with her high heels, dislodging it in the process.
She then reached out both hands and placed them on the seat. Snap!
With one mighty pull, she ripped off the entire seat.
Ashlyn proceeded to stick her head inside the wreckage and carry out the three children.
Just as she was carrying out the children, the van started emitting crackling sounds.
“Get down!” Ashlyn yelled as she leapt forward.
The van behind her burst into a ball of flames in a deafening explosion!
Dirt and rubble from the wreckage flew into the air and rained down onto the street.
The crowd jumped in shock upon witnessing this turn of events.
The van actually exploded!
Pain seared across Ashlyn’s back as she held the children firmly in her arms to protect them.
Her face immediately turned as pale as a sheet.
Quaking fearfully, one of the children in her arms grabbed on tightly to her shirt. “It’s alright, don’t be scared,” she assured him.
Meanwhile, those three men were still running for their lives.
Upon discovering that the children only had superficial wounds, she immediately gave chase.
There were already several strong and burly men hot on those three men’s heels.
But all of a sudden, a swift figure overtook them!
Before they could even react, they were greeted with the sight of a slender figure leaping off the ground as her dress twirled midair like a blooming flower!
In one swift motion, she split open her beautiful legs and sent two men flying to the ground!
“Ow!” the both of them wailed.
It was a scene right out of the movies!
Even though she was in heels, she still moved at an astonishing speed nonetheless.
Dashing forward, she leaped into the air once more. Even though she looked like a fairy in her getup, it in no way diminished how cool her movements were.
In one smooth shoulder throw, the last man was apprehended by the woman as well.
The rest of the crowd, on the other hand, were pinning down the other two men that Ashlyn had mowed down.
The entire scene seemed to have played out in a second.
The woman’s stern gaze landed on the three men. The moment she turned around, the crowd felt their hearts skip a beat.
What a beautiful woman!
How can one be so beautiful?
What an overwhelming aura.
And those eyes! How stern they look!
Just then, a police car pulled up beside them and several traffic policemen darted out.
Next came the ambulance. The doctors and nurses came out and then helped the injured children into the ambulance.
Heaving a sigh of relief, Ashlyn gazed at her watch and discovered that it was almost 6 o’clock.
She hastily got into her Land Rover and sped off.
It would be rude of her to turn up late.
After she got into the car, the first thing she did was send Mrs. Field a message on WhatsApp, “I got caught in a jam so I might be a little late.”
