158 Buried Memories

    Pei Yutang's enthusiastic incessant chatter traveled over the phone again.

    \"Alright, alright, I got it.\" Lin Yan sighed helplessly in response.

    Pei Yutang was practically as sticky as a plaster. If she didn't agree to it, she reckoned that he would call and pester her until she did.

    \"Ha ha! Sister Yan, that's a deal! You cannot stand me up! Bye-bye, Sister Yan!\" Pei Yutang chortled happily.

    \"Hold on!\" Lin Yan interjected hurriedly as Pei Yutang was about to hang up.

    \"Sister Yan, what's wrong?\" Pei Yutang sounded puzzled.

    \"Autographed... limited edition... poster! Don't forget!\" Lin Yan's reminder resounded aloud.

    Pei Yutang was speechless...

    \"Okay, alright! Don't worry, I'll steal it for you!\" Pei Yutang was brimming with confidence.

    Lin Yan hung up after Pei Yutang promised.

    This rascal...

    Lin Yan held her phone in her hand in a reverie. If that abduction hadn't happened and her brother had still been around, he would have been around the same age as Pei Yutang.

    At the thought of her brother, Lin Yan's eyes unconsciously gleamed like steel with fury.

    If it hadn't been for those beasts...

    One day, she swore that she would rip them to pieces to make them pay. She would make them regret this.

    Lin Yan composed herself as she inhaled deeply. She cast away the billowing surges of emotions within her.

    She had lost control more than once, and the consequences had been disastrous. She would wreak destructive chaos every time.

    She could adjust and regulate her emotions better now, which had decreased the number of times she lost control.

    Every time she recalled what had happened in the laboratory, it would still send a shiver down her spine even now. It had felt like centuries of purgatory and a real war zone. If she had a choice, she would rather forget all of it. However, the memories seemed to have been etched in her brain with a burning soldering iron.

    She had been an intelligent girl as a child, so she had possessed the ability to comprehend things much faster than others. However, the laboratory incident had significantly amplified her abilities. Without that incident, she might not have become a world-class racer or possessed enhanced intelligence.

    Unfortunately, at the same time, she had lost her brother. She would often lose control of herself. Those were painful memories that couldn't be erased.

    After she had escaped, she had tried her best to hide the changes in her from everyone else. However, she wasn't sure if she could still be an ordinary person.

    She was rather fearful that losing her consciousness at times was one of the side effects. It sounded more logical than being possessed by a spirit.

    Still, she was relieved that she had been herself recently. She hoped that it would continue. She had no wish to be thrown into a mental asylum.

    ...

    The next day, Lin Yan went to the competition venue that Pei Yutang had told her about. As usual, she wore a mask and a cap.

    There were two types of racing competition venues.

    A non-racing venue wasn't confined and was usually located outside the city. Rally races, cross-country races, and mountain races were usually held there.

    Her grandfather's team would be participating in a rally race, where the racer and the navigator would work as a team.

    Another venue could be a confined space where competitions were held in a cordoned-off space. This usually attracted more spectators, as they could watch the race from the sides of the venue.

    Pei Yutang's competition fell into the last category.

    Many spectators were already seated. Lin Yan marched past the crowd, looking for Pei Yutang's team.
