At this moment, everyone was thoroughly shocked.
When Xyla fell off, Christopher jumped down after her without caring about anything else. While holding onto a red curtain on the second floor with one hand, he grabbed Xyla’s hand tightly with his other.
The instant Xyla felt Christopher’s warm hand upon hers, she found herself calming down instantly. Her thoughts also began to clear. However, her heartbeat was still beating out of control. It felt as if there was a little motor installed in her chest. Xyla would never have thought that this man would jump after her even though it was so dangerous.
From the second floor, it was a long way down to the ground. Even if one didn’t die from the fall, one would end up becoming handicapped.
Just like that, the two of their bodies dangled in the air. Christopher wouldn’t let go of Xyla’s hand no matter what. Due to the amount of force he was using, Christopher’s veins bulged on his neck and the back of his arm.
When everyone saw that Christopher was able to grab hold of Xyla, they immediately calmed down.
Jeremy let out a long sigh quickly before rubbing his sweat off. He quickly walked over to the railing and looked down. By then, Xyla’s bodyguards had already tackled the female staff to the ground.
Meanwhile, the others quickly ran to the second floor. Other employees quickly brought an air mattress and an automatic inflator beneath Xyla and Christopher. Very soon, they filled the air mattress up.
“Close your eyes…” Christopher said gently.
His eyes seemed to be smiling even when he had a neutral facial expression on his face.
Xyla obediently closed her eyes.
In the next second, Christopher let go of the curtain, and the two of them began falling.
Everyone downstairs and upstairs was watching them. To avoid getting Xyla hurt, Christopher hugged her tightly in his arms.
When they landed, Christopher’s back was the first to hit the air mattress. He acted as Xyla’s human cushion. Finally, everyone watching the whole thing unfold could stop worrying.
Christopher was still holding Xyla tightly in his embrace.
Xyla was still on top of him. Because of him, Xyla didn’t feel impacted at all from the landing. Even so, Xyla’s heart was still beating wildly. When she recalled what had just happened, she still felt terrified. If Christopher hadn’t been there, she didn’t dare think of what would have happened to her.
From the angle at which she fell, she would’ve landed on her head. If that were to happen, she’d have been dead for sure… Still feeling a little beside herself, Xyla remained on top of Christopher. Her face was pale.
Christopher didn’t move. Instead, he continued to hold her in that position. “What’s the matter? Have you fallen in love with my body?” he asked.
Xyla’s heart immediately tightened. She quickly collected herself and got up, pulling away from his embrace.
“What are you saying?” she blushed after hearing what Christopher said.
Right after that, Christopher’s bodyguards quickly huddled over and pulled him up carefully. They swept the dust off his body.
“Master Lancelot, we have already captured the waitress. What do we do with her?” One of the bodyguards asked respectfully.
Christopher smiled and looked at Xyla.
“Take her outside. We’ll interrogate her carefully,” he said coldly.
“Let’s call the cops…” Xyla said.
“Why do we need cops when I’m around?” Christopher immediately waved it off. He sounded very annoyed.
