There was no way Shan Zihao had ever heard of Preying Skulk.
Preying Skulk was a theft organization. There was something else that set it apart from An Hun Group and Gu Sha Mercenaries as well.
Large-scale organizations like An Hun and Gu Sha would stir up a commotion once they appeared. Organizations like them were frequently published in Country M’s international papers and magazines, stated as presences one must absolutely never provoke by countless business corporations and politicians.
Preying Skulk was different. Not many knew about the organization, only collectors who liked antiques and collectibles would probe around for its news and whereabouts. This was because Preying Skulk’s main activity was theft and its members did nothing but thieving.
The organization had never boasted or publicized itself either but it owned a prominent spot in the international scene. Hence, people who knew about Preying Skulk were globally influential and had a significant status.
In other words, if someone was of no importance and capability, they could forget about discovering the existence of the Preying Skulk. This was why Yun Jian was not scared of mentioning the organization in front of Shan Zihao.
If Pete had been fearful of Yun Jian in the beginning, he was filled with anticipation now. He looked forward to Yun Jian being able to help free him from Preying Skulk. From how she had snatched things from him, the infamous Grand Thief, Pete agreed to Yun Jian right away since she did not seem like someone who lacked money.
“Mn.” As if knowing that Pete would agree to it, Yun Jian nodded with a hum. Two seconds later, she told Pete in fluent Hindi, “Report to Gu Sha Mercenaries two days later. Look for Snake.Lizard there and say that Yun Jian told you to.”
As Yun Jian switched to Hindi in talking to Pete, her abrupt change of language astounded Shan Zihao. By then, Yun Jian had switched back to Chinese.
“I believe that you’ll be able to find its address.” The “it” referred to here was none other than Gu Sha Mercenaries.
Yun Jian wore a small smile that was laced with a vague sense of sweetness.
Without a doubt, Pete understood Hindi. Moreover, Yun Jian had spoken in Hindi specifically so Pete would be the only one who understood it. Her purpose was not to let Shan Zihao know what she said.
After Yun Jian had spoken and Shan Zihao failed to figure it out as he watched Yun Jian and Pete talk, he could not hold himself back and finally asked Yun Jian, “What language were you speaking in just now? Why can’t I understand it?”
Yun Jian side-eyed Shan Zihao who stood on the side, only then remembering that there was someone around them. Since Shan Zihao asked her a question, she glanced at him indifferently and replied as briefly as she could, “Hindi.”
It was too much effort for Yun Jian to even say another word more to the guy. Then, she shifted her eyes back to Pete but the latter was frozen for some time.
Gu Sha Mercenaries? Look for Snake.Lizard? What was Yun Jian’s identity?
Luckily, Pete was slow enough that he was unable to comprehend how the parties mentioned were related.
“Okay,” he replied with a nod at Yun Jian.
“Alright, go ahead and do what you have to. I’m going to watch my brother compete,” Yun Jian answered.
“Mn...” Pete was not even aware that he was being recruited by Yun Jian and was still thinking about how the latter was related to Gu Sha Mercenaries.
Simultaneously, Yun Jian had tugged Ning Lanlan along to the competition area.
