Yun Jian’s suggestion had obviously put off the man who was reveling in his offer and the sense of supremacy it brought him.
Her young age, too, annoyed him further as he thought that Yun Jian had interrupted something she was not old enough to barge in and had taken his limelight away.
“Kids shouldn’t be making up stories if you know nothing! New Cruise isn’t just an ordinary company! Besides, my friend works there. He’ll know for sure if the company’s organizing any activity and he’ll let me know directly when he does!” said the person in assurance and a cocksure tone, retorting Yun Jian.
He was clear with his implication—his friend worked in New Cruise. Yun Jian was making things up if what she said was not even heard of by his friend!
Yun Jian turned to catch a glimpse of the man calling her a bluff. Middle-aged with squinty eyes, he was the farthest face from being handsome, and gave one chills just looking at him. There were red pustules all over his face, too, like he was insatiable and was in dire need of sexual release.
Giving the man a glare, Yun Jian kept quiet.
She was telling that to Qin Li, not this sexually frustrated looking man. It was none of her business whether Qin Li took her advice. She was just being nice.
Qin Li was taken aback as well but compared to the insatiable-looking, squinty-eyed man, his gaze was relatively contemplative.
Then, they went on to talk about other things.
Yun Jian stood some distance away and she could still hear the ugly man throwing mud at her to the people around him.
“Look, she’s so young. She shouldn’t assume she’s the best just because she got under the Advanced Special Forces! What a company New Cruise is! That’s a national renowned big name! How could a little girl like her stretch her hands so far to New Cruise...”
The man intentionally raised his volume, as if wanting everyone there to hear his libel about Yun Jian so he could humiliate her.
It put Qin Yirou in an awkward spot while Zhang Meihua gaped. If Yun Jian had not stayed neutral, she would just blurt the fact that Yun Jian was New Cruise’s CEO, but since the girl said nothing, she dared not make a comment on it.—She was still waiting for Yun Jian to take care of her when she got older! No way was she offending the girl so soon!
Yun Jian stood with her brother Yun Yi as she occasionally teased Yun Zhu, as if what happened just now had not happened at all.
Soon, the last ray of golden hue from the setting sun disappeared. The sky finally darkened completely.
The guests were still hanging around as it was the Lunar New Year’s Eve where people stayed up late into the night as tradition.
It was going to be a long night, so the adults were already starting a game of mahjong in Zhang Meihua’s house. The children were led by the women to play with firecrackers bought from the sundry shop at the front of the house.
An extremely fast hiss of an engine was heard as the rumble of a sports car resonated in the small Xinjiang Town.
“What’s that sound?” Someone gasped in surprise, wondering what it was that was being so loud.
“Isn’t that the whir of a sports car? Looks like there’s a sports car! Come on, let’s go see outside!” The ugly man was quick to usher everyone out.
A black Lamborghini sports car was then seen veering slowly into the front yard...
