The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 671 The Scorched Woman
Charis closed her eyes and took a deep breath. She had always been a decisive person. She quickly made up her mind, chose the path with the least fire, and rushed out. As soon as she ran towards the fire, she felt as though her skin was melting off her bones. Her lungs were filled with thick smoke, suffocating her.
Charis was still a long way from the nearest exit. She quickly made her way across the sea of fire, her skin blistering under the extreme heat. Soon, the smell of burning fabric filled her nose. Then there came an excruciating, burning pain.
Charis let out an ear-piercing scream. Glancing over her shoulder, she found that her back was on fire. But she didn’t have the time to care. She could only keep running.
Gradually, she used up the last of her strength, and her consciousness began to blur from lack of oxygen. Pain consumed every part of her body, and it even hurt to breathe.
Fortunately, all the props and furniture in the haunted house had been burnt to ashes, so there weren’t that many obstacles in her path. She was getting closer and closer to the exit.
Finally, she heard the noise of the crowd gathered outside. Charis felt that her heart was about to stop beating from the pain, but she continued to run in the direction of the noise through sheer willpower. P)
She didn’t know how long she had run, but the sound of the crowd gradually became louder. Finally, it seemed as though she was surrounded by people.
Charis wanted to see what was going on, but she couldn’t peel her eyes open. It was as though her eyelids had been glued shut.
Just then, Charis felt a burst of freezing cold liquid being splashed on her body. Unable to hold on any longer, she passed out on the spot.
Countless firefighters surrounded the haunted house, trying desperately to put out the fire.
Because it was the night of Halloween, many tourists had flocked to the amusement park and the fire attracted a wave of onlookers.
Everyone craned their necks to watch the fire devour the haunted house. Just then, a woman on fire rushed out the front door. She looked as though she was being burned alive, a sight too horrible to behold.
“Oh, my God! Is she still alive?!”
The onlookers were all shocked and instinctively took a few steps back. Some even whipped out their phones to take photos, whereas the parents covered their children’s eyes with their hands to prevent them from seeing such a horrific scene.
When the firefighters saw the flame-engulfed person rush out of the establishment, they immediately pointed the hose at her to extinguish the fire on her body.
Fortunately, the fire on Charis’s body was put out, but she was already burned beyond recognition. She looked like a scorched object in the shape of a human. Right after being hosed down, she collapsed to the ground and passed out.
The helicopter took Janet to an area a safe distance from the haunted house.
As soon as Janet disembarked, she rushed toward the haunted house.
She rushed headlong into the crowd and made her way to the periphery of the haunted house. She looked around but didn’t see any sign of Brandon.
Janet became anxious. She grabbed an onlooker’s arm and asked urgently, “Did you see a tall man in a black windbreaker just now?”
The passer-by shook his head. “No, but there was a woman on fire who ran out of the haunted house just now.”
Janet felt as though her soul had left her body. She took two steps back and looked blankly at the burning house in front of her.
She and Brandon were separated inside the haunted house just now. She had managed to escaped, but what about Brandon?
Was he still trapped inside?
