The ice skating rink was massive with thronging crowds skating here.
Yun Jian was not being loud but it sent a zip of shudder down everyone’s spine. Who could imagine a pretty maiden like her to say something so horrifying? What did she mean by “not just that, I can kill you too”?
Moreover, her last words “do you believe me?” were asked almost monotonously. It was not a question. It was a statement.
Gao Meihan quivered visibly while Ye Kai and his bros were stunned. Even Dai Qingqing took a surprised glance at Yun Jian and gasped involuntarily.
If it were an average girl, no one would say something like that so casually. Killing someone? It was something no one there even dared to think about but Yun Jian had spoken about it so easily!
“Hah, uh, pretty girl, you don’t crack a joke like that, right?” As if wanting to soothe the mood, Ye Kai’s bro spoke again, chuckling awkwardly, as he looked at Yun Jian.
Without a doubt, everyone had only thought that Yun Jian was just kidding.
“Let’s go,” Yun Jian gave them a last glance before telling Dai Qingqing.
“Huh? ...Oh, oh!” Dai Qingqing took an extended moment to catch up with reality before she followed Yun Jian to go through the side, going around Ye Kai and friends, to another corner.
It was until both of them were some distance away from the teenagers that Dai Qingqing laughed heartily.
“Heh heh, Yun Jian, did you see Gao Meihan’s face just now? She was twitching. You probably don’t know who Gao Meihan is, yeah? It’s that girl who acted like she was innocent and pitiful in front of the guys just now. Back then, she...”
Dai Qingqing took her time telling Yun Jian about what Gao Meihan did to her in the past before relenting. By then, they had already made their way to the north side of the ice rink.
Ye Kai, Gao Meihan, and the rest were at the south part of the ice skating rink, coincidentally it was the farthest they could be from Yun Jian and Dai Qingqing.
It was fortunate that the ice skating rink was massive in size as Yun Jian and Dai Qingqing’s conversation could not at all be heard by Ye Kai and group since they were at both ends of north and south respectively.
Yun Jian skated for a bit on the rink with her ice skates and went to sit at the resting area to watch Dai Qingqing. The latter’s lines when she skated were beautiful. With a squint, Yun Jian enjoyed the sight.
The girl was in her school’s ice skating club and she was both interested and competent in the field, so Yun Jian spent an afternoon here keeping Dai Qingqing company. By the time they made it out from the ice skating rink, it was already 4:30pm.
“Let’s go, Yun Jian. I’ll treat you to a lavish meal!” Dai Qingqing offered generously. She had already taken Yun Jian as a true friend.
“Mn.” Yun Jian nodded.
Both of them made their way back to Novel Park Hotel first to fetch Zhang Zhifan and Duan Lei before going to the place Dai Qingqing guided them to for dinner.
“I should go back now, Yun Jian. See you at the event venue later at night!” Dai Qingqing told Yun Jian happily when she found out that the latter was also attending the gang gathering tonight.
Dai Qingqing had stayed in Novel Park Hotel because she did not want to go back to the Cai Family. However, tonight was an exception. As the favorite granddaughter, Dai Qingqing’s grandfather was taking her to attend the mafia gathering tonight.
The gathering was organized by Panthers Pack, where they had invited people from all walks of life to attend in order to expand and forge better connections. Some big companies or enterprises would attend the event with their children, purely to introduce the younger generation to the circle—and if they were of suitable age, to marry them off. After all, high society was all about matching family backgrounds.
