712 We Are All Afraid

 Only then did Fangzheng realize that the man hadn't been standing. He had actually been sitting. Now that he stood up, he was like a giant! Fangzheng estimated that Old Fifth Gao was likely 2.1-2.2 meters tall! The two policemen were not short either at around 1.8 meters, but they appeared like kids when standing beside him.

Red Boy smacked his lips. "He really lives up to his for visiting.

The other older policeman, Officer Zhao, sighed. "Abbot Fangzheng, you weren't here yesterday. If you had, you wouldn't think we are being alarmist here. The man collapsed without any warning... Although we are policemen, we are human after all. If we were to be targeted, we too would collapse. Although we are prepared to sacrifice ourselves in the line of duty, we still feel frantic facing the unknown."

Officer Li said, "Hey, what are you saying? What sacrifice? We are still living well."

Officer Zhao nodded immediately. "Yes, yes, yes. We are living well."

Old Fifth Gao nodded as well as he patted his chest and said, "Don't worry. If there's anything, I'll take the lead!

"You!? If there's anything, the two of us will take the lead. You are tall and strong, and your legs are long and good for running. Besides, we might have to rely on you to save others," Officer Zhao scolded in a joking tone.

Fangzheng asked, "Patrons, aren't you all being a little too pessimistic?"

"Abbot Fangzheng, it's not that we are being pessimistic. It's that this matter is indeed very odd. Furthermore, it happens after dusk. Yesterday, nothing could be seen, and that person just silently collapsed. Also, the animals cried out in unison at night, and they were gone after a bit of struggling. There wasn't that much of a stir. When we woke up, all of them were dead. Thinking back to it really creeps me out. Last night, something or someone killed all the poultry. Who knows if it will kill humans tonight?" Although Old Fifth Gao was tall and strong, he also had a look of worry.

When Officer Zhao and Officer Li remembered the events of the previous night, they let out a long sigh. Just as they said, policemen were human too. They, too, had families. Who would wish to die if they could leave? The villagers could evacuate, but with them donning the police uniform, they were destined to be stationed here to face the unknown dangers.Gao literally means tall.
