    Chapter 883: Could You Hurt Me?

    “That must be… Every minute counts. Time passes,” replied Pei Yutang.

    “What does time look like?” asked Lin Yan.

    Pei Yutang stared at Lin Yan. “Sister Yan, are you… playing with me? If I could see time, would I still need to invest in you?”

    “There is no such thing as time in the universe. Time is merely a term mankind uses,” replied Lin Yan.

    “Huh? What do you mean?” Pei Yutang was puzzled.

    “Time is something that doesn’t exist. It’s an abstract concept. However, humans use time as a reference for convenience. It’s an expression of wisdom, not the true existential meaning of time,” explained Lin Yan.

    “Then, how do you explain the sunset? Doesn’t it happen because of time?” asked Pei Yutang.

    The corners of Lin Yan’s mouth twitched. “I believe you now. You are indeed a bad student. The sun rises and the moon sets because of a spatial phenomenon. Everything is constantly in motion, so the sun rises and sets.”

    “Then…”

    Lin Yan glanced at Pei Yutang. “Go and read your books.”

    “F*ck! Do evolved beings need to understand science?” Pei Yutang was dumbfounded.

    “How would I know? I’m a newbie myself.” Lin Yan sighed heavily.

    Evolution was indeed a science. It had not appeared out of thin air. It had existed for perhaps longer than even humanity had. It was just that the result of evolution might have transcended the inherent ideas of human beings.

    It was impossible for humans to fly in the air like birds, but the result of human evolution allowed room for such a possibility. This was the embodiment of an evolved being’s ability.

    …

    In the sky above the building, Li Si pulled Zhang San. The two of them stood in the air as though they were completely still.

    “You scared me to death. Zhang San, who exactly is that person? He’s really terrifying, yet your ability was useless. If it had not been for me, both of us would have fallen to our deaths!” Li Si said.

    “Could that man really be Xiao Yao?” Zhang San pondered it.

    “Zhang San, you should lose weight. You’re too heavy. I can’t hold on anymore!”

    “You fool! Hurry up and find a place to land. Keep an eye on this building. I believe that she will come out. If that man isn’t with her, we will continue to attack!” Zhang San gritted his teeth as he spoke.

    “Who are you calling a fool? Say it again. If I don’t smash you to death, I’ll be your son!”

    “Uh, little brother, you’re the smartest, you’re the smartest. Quick, land first…”

    …

    In the office, Lin Yan glanced at He Lefeng, who had fainted because of her kick. She walked over and pinched him. “Get up.”

    “Ah…”

    He Lefeng opened his eyes in a daze and glanced at Lin Yan in confusion.

    “Have you eaten?” He Lefeng asked.

    “Screw eating. Did too much sleep get to you?” asked Lin Yan.

    He Lefeng snapped out of his daze and scrambled to his feet. He then looked around. “What happened? Where are they?”

    “I’m fine. They left,” Lin Yan explained.

    “Oh my god! Sister, this is way too scary! How did they chase us all the way here?” He Lefeng panicked.

    He looked puzzled. “Why did I suddenly fall asleep?”

    Lin Yan sighed and told He Lefeng everything.

    “F*ck…” He Lefeng stared at Lin Yan in disbelief. “Sister, are you hurt?”

    Lin Yan studied He Lefeng thoughtfully. “Do you think you could hurt me?”
