Even though the amusement park wasn't overcrowded with people, it was still considerably packed. In particular, there were more people in front of the roller coaster. After all, there weren't exactly a lot of activities for adults in this amusement park.
As the both of them queued up for over half an hour, the empress just stood there calmly eating her ice cream. On the other hand, Ren Baqian was fiddling with his mobile phone with one hand and holding the empress's hand with the other.
"Will there be any problems with this?" the empress asked abruptly.
Ren Baqian looked at the empress, and a bad premonition arose in his mind.
Normally speaking, the odds of a roller coaster having problems was about the same as an airplane crash.
However, judging from the empress's behavior after watching Final Destination, her inability to take it off her mind, and the words she just said, Ren Baqian was afraid that she would create some problems even if there weren't any.
Like a great person once said, problems must be faced. Even if problems were created when there were no problems, they too must be faced.
The empress couldn't possibly emulate the excitement from the movie and actually do something funny, could she?
"Actually I have acrophobia, so I will just wait for you down here," Ren Baqian uttered while leaving after he saw that the people ahead were already starting to enter. He was prepared to stop the roller coaster at any time.
The empress's movements were much quicker than his, grabbing the collar of his shirt. He couldn't escape no matter how hard he struggled.
"You're going to leave me alone?" The empress pointed at the surroundings, which were full of couples.
She then looked at the last egg roll in her hands, as if she couldn't part with it. Subsequently, she tossed it into her mouth.
"They will be grateful to me if I don't go up there," Ren Baqian replied in a soft and proper tone.The empress didn't speak a word and dragged him forward while conveniently rubbing her hands on his clothes.
Ren Baqian was shocked when he saw her reaction. Had he guessed it correctly? Was she going at it for real?
Ren Baqian dared not shout out loud. He felt the empress's strength as she tugged on his collar, and he grabbed onto the railing at the side.
I will not get on this ride even if you beat me to death,
People in the surroundings felt amused when they looked at the both of them. This guy was too timid.
If their girlfriends were that pretty, they wouldn't even frown a single bit if they had to brave the dagger mountains and flame seas, let alone riding a roller coaster.
This lady's arm was so strong that even the guy's fingers that were grabbing onto the railing had become pale.
Following that, the empress poked Ren Baqian at the back of his waist, and he eventually calmed down. His entire body was soft and no longer had any remaining strength to exert.
After fastening the safety belt and clamping down the U-shaped safety restraint, Ren Baqian's body finally regained some strength. Fully nervous, he looked at the empress and spoke to her softly, "They are merely ordinary people! There will be a huge problem if something were to go wrong!"
The empress turned her head with a blossom-like smile and looked at him. "Don't worry, I will be gentle."
Ren Baqian almost vomited blood. A small issue on the roller coaster would result in a huge problem. How would being gentle help?
Those words weren't even the least bit comforting!
Ren Baqian observed three minutes of silence for the people on the roller coaster and hoped that there wouldn't be any problems later ah, ah, ah, ah, ah!
Along with the sound of the bell, the roller coaster slowly moved forward and Ren Baqian's heart began to lift as well.
It was still alright at the start when the speed was still very slow. Besides, it was travelling upward. Ren Baqian got a little giddy as he looked down at the ground below him.
When the roller coaster travelled downhill rapidly, Ren Baqian's heart rate began to increase.
As the roller coaster moved at high speeds and occasionally turned 360 degrees in the air, Ren Baqian gripped tightly onto the over-the-shoulder restraint and bawled miserably.
Ren Baqian suddenly heard that sound, and before he could even react to it, his entire body began feeling weightless. If he hadn't tightly gripped the over-the-shoulder restraint, he would have been flung out immediately.
However, the over-the-shoulder restraint was now lifting upward.
"Crap!" Ren Baqian was indeed bawling tragically at this time.
The sound of his miserable bawling spread across almost half of the amusement park.
He had thought the empress would tamper with the roller coaster, but he had never expected that she would actually tamper with his safety belt.
Fortunately, the empress's small hands were in time and got ahold of Ren Baqian's shirt at his waist area, which made him feel more relieved.
After that, the empress actually released her grip! Released her grip! Released her grip!
Ren Baqian was going crazy. Was she trying to murder her husband!
At this time, the over-the-shoulder restraint was totally released and the safety belt on his body had snapped. Ren Baqian gripped the over-the-shoulder restraint tightly and fluttered in the wind, resembling a kite in the sky.
Afterward, the empress suddenly stretched out her hands and grabbed onto his wrist, making him feel a little safer.
However, her other hand tapped lightly on the metal over-the-shoulder restraint at the same time and it immediately broke. Ren Baqian held onto the broken safety restraint with both arms and fluttered with the wind as the empress held onto him.
"Ah!" Ren Baqian's yells became even more miserable.
Meanwhile, the people below had also realized that there were problems with the roller coaster, and many people cried out in fear.
In the eyes of the bystanders, the boyfriend's safety belt had snapped and the girlfriend held onto him tightly without letting go. Such a scenario, which often occurred in movies, was happening in front of the eyes of the audience. What a deeply touching sight? Many people below started filming with their mobile phones, thinking that with such a girlfriend, one would live without regrets.
However, Ren Baqian currently almost felt like killing someone.
At this moment, the operator of the roller coaster realized that there was a problem and promptly reduced the speed of the ride.
Everyone on the ride was left dangling in the air soon after.
Somehow, Ren Baqian was now even more miserable than before. One of his arms was being held tightly by the empress while the other was gripping onto the cart. Exerting almost 3,000 newtons of force almost squashed the cart out of shape, but he refused to release even the slight bit of his grip.
He was eventually rescued with great difficulty and was almost driven insane.
Although I had sufficient strength to ensure that I was able to hold onto the over-the-shoulder restraint without falling even after the safety belt snapped, I can't be toyed with in such a manner.
I have acrophobia!!!
"My sincere apologies, Sir. Do you want to go for a checkup at the hospital?" The person in charge was currently rushing down.
"Don't bother me!" Ren Baqian was feeling all jittery.
Even a person made out of clay would have a temper. Ren Baqian felt that he had to express his attitude.
Ever since he had been rescued, he had put on a facade. He didn't even look at the empress after she came down, but merely said, "I don't want to play anymore. Let's go back."
Even a blind person could sense the coldness and resentment from his voice.
"It wasn't interesting at all!" The empress placed one finger beneath her chin and turned her head to look at the surroundings. This rollercoaster was far more boring than she had expected it to be, but she still wanted to visit a few other attractions.
However, upon hearing Ren Baqian's entirely different tone, she first blinked her eyes and looked pensive.
There were actually many people at the side applauding the empress and praising this lady who had just held on tightly to her boyfriend without letting go.
Ren Baqian felt even more depressed.
The both of them walked back for a while, before the empress calmly and puzzledly asked," Are you angry?"
"Very angry!" Ren Baqian lowered his head as if he was looking for money on the ground and refused to look at her.
"Look at me!" The empress grabbed his arm.
Ren Baqian turned his head and looked in another direction.
Soon after, a relentless hand stretched across to his chin and pulled him over.
Regardless of whenever it was, the empress's eyes always appeared very bright, clear, and pure, as if they were a lake. Now, however, they looked as if they had some indefinite twinkling.
Looking at the resentment on Ren Baqian's face, the empress blinked her eyes and pulled Ren Baqian's face toward herself.
She kissed him.
It was a little cold and very soft. It also had a soul alluring scent.
Ren Baqian felt his heart beating like a piledriver going, "Boom! Boom! Boom!"
What was going on? Ren Baqian's eyes opened wide.
It was a mere contact, like a dragonfly touching the water lightly. It ended before Ren Baqian even had time to enjoy it.
The empress was blushing from the bottom of her ears to her face. She lowered her head a little and avoided eye contact with him. Her eyes were filled with bashfulness.
"Keke, seeing that you already know your mistake and have deeply reflected upon yourself, let's walk around again." Ren Baqian suddenly thought that it was just a roller coaster ride and that it wasn't impossible to consider doing something even more thrilling.
"Pow!" The empress slapped his nose.
