“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.”

In the thick smoke, people usually feel panicked and want to escape.
Then suddenly, they hear someone saying to run out quickly, and most people instinctively follow.
Using Dean as a guide, the surrounding people rushed towards the gap in the police perimeter.
“Hey! You can’t run out…”
The police who entered the smoke tried to stop the crowd and shouted loudly, trying to prevent them from breaking the perimeter.
However, even if they managed to stop a few, the rest continued to move forward, and soon someone rushed out of the gap.
In an instant, the police perimeter and the people inside were only three to four meters apart.
At the moment when the gap appeared, someone had already run out.
As the first person rushed out, the second and third followed closely behind, like a chain reaction.
More and more people tried to escape the thick smoke and fled from the gap in the perimeter.
When the smoke slowly spread deeper into the crowd, many people even tried to break through without a gap.
The once stable situation was instantly broken.
Faced with these panicked and reckless rich kids, the police couldn’t hit or scold them, they could only try their best to persuade them not to panic.
The result was obvious, it was useless.
On the other side, Jim and the others who were questioning Joey about the location of ‘Pink Fantasy’ were briefly stunned by the sudden turn of events.
“It’s Phantom Thief! He had been hiding in the crowd the whole time!”
Robin immediately realized
“Commissioner, instruct your people to restore the perimeter. I’ll stay here with Joey!”
Robin said, taking charge.
Jim nodded heavily and immediately rushed up to maintain order.
“I guess the pink diamond is hidden in yourself, right? It’s not lost yet, is it?”
Robin turned her head to look into Joey’s eyes and asked in a positive tone.
“How… how do you know?”
Joey, who had been planning to hide the truth from Jim, suddenly looked shocked, unable to believe what he was hearing.
“That’s not the point. As long as the diamond is still on you, it’s fine.”
Robin glanced at the chaotic situation behind him and said to Joey, “Phantom Thief will definitely come looking for you. We need to move to a safe place and…”
At this point, Robin paused, and his gaze suddenly became sharp as he stared directly into Joey’s eyes.
“I’m very interested in the real secret of this ‘Pink Fantasy.’ What kind of deception does Phantom Thief want to expose tonight?”
Upon hearing this, Joey’s pupils instantly shrank.
Robin’s words showed that he knew that the fake ‘Pink Fantasy’ was just one part of the Penguin’s true plan, not the main secret.
“Some people are approaching this way. I’m not sure if Phantom Thief is among them. Let’s move.”
Robin grabbed Joey and held a Grappling Gun in his hand, shooting it towards the main entrance of the venue.
Pressing the button on the handle, the Grappling Gun started retracting the rope, quickly pulling Robin and Joey towards the entrance.
But at that very moment, a flying knife suddenly cut the rope shot by the grappling gun.
Robin and Joey fell when they felt like they had no weight.
Joey landed with a thud, but Robin changed his position in the air and landed safely.
Looking in the direction the flying knife came from, a woman with a mask and a dagger in her hand was heading their way with a fierce gaze.
‘Hmph! Robin caught Joey, this useless guy. He probably spilled the beans to the cops about the diamond’s secret too. I knew it was a bad idea to cooperate with such a coward.'”
Lark sneered at Joey with a disdainful look.
“Who are you?”
Robin felt a dangerous aura from the woman, which was entirely different from the impression Phantom Thief gave off.
“Get out of the way, kid! I want the person next to you. You better not meddle in my business!”
Lark waved the dagger, showing a clear threat.
“Usually, you can walk around with Batman’s protection, but there’s no big bat here to save you today.”
As soon as she said that, Robin’s face changed instantly, and an unknown rage surged from his lower abdomen to his head.
“I… Never… Need… Batman’s… Protection!”
Robin dashed towards Lark, raising his fist and delivering a powerful punch to her abdomen with astonishing speed.
Why did so many people see him as Batman’s sidekick?
They were partners!
Not some game of adults taking care of children!
Robin felt a burden of resentment that needed to be released.
“A little brat looking for death.”
Lark’s eyes filled with murderous intent as she bent backward to dodge Robin’s punch.
At the same time, her right hand with the dagger made a move, stabbing fiercely at Robin’s arm.
Despite the anger in his heart, Robin’s movements remained stable.
He swiftly leaned his body backward, avoiding the dagger, and then delivered a swift sweep kick to Lark’s leg.
The entire set of moves went smoothly and quickly, leaving no time to think.
Robin just knew how to do everything.
“You little shit!”
With an angry curse, Lark lost her balance and fell to the ground with a thud.
Robin went after her right away and knocked the dagger out of her hand while pinning her upper body down.
While the two were fighting with each other, Joey suddenly felt a tap on his shoulder, almost scaring him to death.
“Who is it!”
He turned around and sighed with relief.
It turned out to be William, the CEO of Ethan International Shipping Company.
He was on their side.
“Lark is currently holding Robin down. We need to take this opportunity to run. The diamond is still with you, right? As long as we protect the diamond, our boss shouldn’t be too angry.”
William lifted Joey and ran towards the door.
“Th-thank you. Yes, the diamond is still in my pocket. It’s safe.”
Joey expressed his gratitude, feeling the joy of surviving the chaos.
However, he ignored something very important.
With William’s giant body and carrying another person, they seemed to be running too fast…
On the other side, Robin, who had just subdued Lark, noticed that a chubby, unexpectedly quick guy was taking Joey away.
“That’s Phantom Thief!”
Robin realized William’s identity and immediately wanted to chase them.
However, he found his leg being pulled.
“Do you think I’ll let you escape? You brat!”
Lark held onto Robin’s left leg tightly, yelling.
“I don’t have time to deal with you!”
Robin coldly said this and quickly delivered an elbow strike to Lark’s face, knocking her unconscious.
