Jay was dead.
People in the martial club were terror-stricken, but facing Yun Jian who had killed these gunned criminals with a knife, they were paralyzed with fear.
Yun Jian had now gone up to retrieve her butterfly knife and fished out another tissue from her pocket to wipe the blade gently.
Compared to Yu Luo and her team members, Chu Ning and the other five teammates were much less startled. After all, this was about the level of Yun Jian wiping out the mafia group single handedly back then.
Moreover, that was a mob. There were certainly firearms and other weapons in the mafia group. When Yun Jian could annihilate a gang like that, this was positively a walk in the park for her now.
Chu Ning was the first to stand up in delight when she saw that Yun Jian was fine.
“Ow, ow, ow! Go gentler!” cried Chu Xiangnan when he was caught off guard in being pulled up consequently due to Chu Ning’s motion since he had been gripping her hand from comforting her just now.
“You... I... Why are you holding my hand? Shameless Chu Xiangnan, getting brazen, are we?” It was only then Chu Ning realized that the former had been holding her hand.
As she spoke, she sprang up to give Chu Xiangnan a good knock on the head. Receiving a whack, the young man wailed again noisily.
It was a sense of relief from having escaped a life threatening crisis.
When those criminals were killing people recklessly and aiming guns at them, these people held hostages could lose their lives at anytime. However, someone had popped up and taken the threat head on. Now, all of them did not have to live in apprehension of whether the criminals would kill them as they wished.
One who had never experienced the relief that washed over a person after surviving such a disaster would never understand the consolation.
“Yun Jian’er, thank goodness you’re alright!” Chu Ning scampered to Yun Jian right after she jumped up to give Chu Xiangnan a rap on the head.
Having her back against everyone, Yun Jian’s eyes were still alarmingly icy when she turned around after wiping her butterfly knife. It ran a shudder through Chu Ning before the girl quickly composed herself.
“Mm,” Yun Jian hummed with a nod, reeling back her belligerence as she looked at Chu Ning.
Chu Xiangnan as well as Liu Shiyun, Jiang Weiwei, Fang Xiaoran, and the rest of their team stood up consecutively afterward. Yu Luo and others who were still doused in fear and horror picked themselves up respectively as well.
As Team Monarch got up, they followed Chu Ning and Chu Xiangnan to go to Yun Jian.
“Haha, Yun Jian, you were so freaking cool! I’m in fervent admiration!” Chu Xiangnan stood there and mimicked several of Yun Jian’s earlier moves. He looked back at Yun Jian with a glowing grin. There was a wash of pride on his rather handsome face.
Yun Jian was from Team Monarch which they were all in!
“Right, why was the man so scared after finding out that your pseudonym Slashing God, Yun Jian? Heh, has your reputation as Slashing God already spread high and far?”
After his exaggerated reenactment, Chu Xiangnan asked Yun Jian curiously.
As Yun Jian tilted to glance at the handsome face of a jokester Chu Xiangnan was, she was suddenly struck with a faint thought that Chu Xiangnan’s joker nature did not deserve his good looks.
“Guess.” Yun Jian smiled before turning to head out of the martial club.
“Is it because Slashing God sounds nicer? No way, my moniker’s Thor! Thor... It’s cooler than yours no matter how you look at it! Haha!” Chu Xiangnan preened.
“Enough of it, you!” Chu Ning sprang up to land another rap on his head.
