Work for her? What kind of work? What could they work on? These were Shan Zihao’s thoughts. What the guy was feeling was indescribable in words.
The more mysterious Yun Jian was acting, of course, it meant that Shan Zihao grew more interested in her. Humans were thrill-seekers, especially people who were doted on like Shan Zihao.
In the senior high division of Foreign Languages High School, Shan Zihao was no doubt the subject of admiration to many girls. Not only was he handsome and charismatic, but his cool character was also one that teenage girls went head over heels for.
It was rare for him to meet a girl like Yun Jian. She barely regarded him in the beginning and her sense of enigma had only kept growing since the moment they met.
As she carried Ning Lanlan to climb over the wall with her bizarre skills, Xu Haozhe’s father calling her “Sister Jian”, and seeing the biracial Pete being so fearful toward her, all these matters had only deepened Shan Zihao’s interest.—The harder something was to be obtained, the more enthralling it was to get to the bottom of it—this was basically depicting Shan Zihao.
“Wh...what?” Pete gasped in surprise.
“Work for you? Name my payment? For real?” Pete Looked Yun Jian up and down. After all, she had terrified him before. When Yun Jian snatched what he had stolen previously, it was like she was robbing money off him.
Yet, Yun Jian was now asking him to work for her and he could ask for any amount of payment he wanted. To Pete, the fact that Yun Jian was not snatching things from him was already the luckiest delight he could have but she was asking him to work with her?
“I’m not joking. I just need your answer, yes or no?” Yun Jian had her arms crossed in front of her as she was in no hurry for Pete’s reply.
The man was silent for an extended moment until Yun Jian’s voice rang again, snapping him out of his thoughts. “Of course, once you say yes, I’ll send someone to free you from the manipulation of the Preying Skulk.”
Pete had signed a long-term contract with the Preying Skulk. As an international thief, he had an organization backing him up. The Preying Skulk was a famous global theft organization.
The reason it was called a theft organization was because its nature was different from An Hun Group and Gu Sha Mercenaries. Preying Skulk had a niche—the only missions it accepted were items the clients wanted to steal or treasures they wanted to seek. Other than that, it dismissed requests like assassination and the likes.
Preying Skulk was more or less a camp for thieves like Pete. Hence, it posed no conflict of interest with the An Hun Group and Gu Sha Mercenaries.
Nonetheless, Yun Jian knew that Pete had signed a ten-year contract with Preying Skulk. This meant that Pete would only serve Preying Skulk within these ten years. This also meant that all the missions Pete took in the ten years had to go through Preying Skulk and the money he risked his life to earn had to be split into half, half of it would go to the organization.
Under such circumstances, Pete was eager to free himself from Preying Skulk, so what Yun Jian said was more enticing than everything else.
As expected, Pete’s eyes glowed the moment Yun Jian spoke. He looked at her excitedly. “Really? You really could help free me from Preying Skulk?”
“Would you be willing to work for me?” Yun Jian did not answer Pete directly but repeated her earlier question.
“Yes, yes—of course!” Pete nodded fervently.
Shan Zihao who watched them from the side looked at both of them in even more shock than just now. Just what was going on again? What was the Preying Skulk? Was it some sort of mysterious organization in Longmen City? Why had he never heard of it?v
