Yun Jian was not here to headhunt Pete. She was here to watch Yun Yi compete. Furthermore, she did not even know that Pete would be here. It came as a surprise to even Yun Jian herself that she had recruited Pete just like this.
Nevertheless, she thought that her trip here was really worth it! After all, Pete was the international Grand Thief—a notable maven in the world. For someone of Pete’s status to join Gu Sha Mercenaries, it was a way of expanding the organization’s capability too. Since the old folks from Gu Sha were annihilated now, strengthening Gu Sha’s ability was a definite matter, of course, Yun Jian currently had to go on.
“The competition’s started!” Ning Lanlan told Yun Jian in slight excitement. The ecstasy in her tone was not because the contest was already beginning but because Xiao Zhiming was beside her.
As Yun Jian had pulled Ning Lanlan along to watch Yun Yi compete, Xiao Zhiming who was Ning Lanlan’s senior was not going to just leave.
Yun Jian could feel Ning Lanlan’s crush on Xiao Zhiming too, so she said nothing about it. Shan Zihao followed when Xiao Zhiming came with them. Yun Jian might be able to tolerate Xiao Zhiming but she did not like seeing Shan Zihao.
In spite of it, she could not do anything about it when the guy insisted on sticking around.
Pete was still standing frozen. No matter how hard he thought about it, he could not figure out the relationship between Yun Jian and Gu Sha Mercenaries. It was worth mentioning how slow the man’s mind worked.
He stayed rooted in thoughts for a long time before the thought suddenly struck him. Yun Jian had asked him to report to Gu Sha Mercenaries; it meant that she was recruiting him into Gu Sha Mercenaries. However, she had asked him to look for Snake.Lizard... and Snake.Lizard was the one running Gu Sha! What did it mean when Yun Jian asked him to look for her?
Pete had his hands palming his forehead as he shook his head in contemplation. How was this all related...
When Yun Jian could ask him to go to Gu Sha Mercenaries, it meant that her status in the organization must be rather important. She was also able to instruct Snake.Lizard, the manager of Gu Sha, so it meant that her rank was higher than Snake.Lizard’s.
If Yun Jian’s position was higher than Snake.Lizard’s, there was only one possibility left... She was...
Once Pete thought of it, his hands flew to cover his mouth as his eyes widened in shock. Could she be... that legendary person?!
While Pete managed to figure out as much, Yun Jian, Ning Lanlan, and the guys had arrived at the competition area. The venue was already bubbling with cheers and hurrahs, the audience seemed as excited as those in the junior high division—even when the junior high division had more people.
Yun Jian wormed her way through the crowd as she spotted Yun Yi who was farther away in just one glance.
Yun Yi and Xu Haozhe were both tall and charming young men. It allowed Yun Jian to catch them right away despite the crowd surrounding them.
Xu Haozhe had noticed her first the moment she came over and since he was standing next to Yun Yi, he helped poke the latter who was still looking around. As Yun Yi followed Xu Haozhe’s gaze, he saw Yun Jian looking back at him among the crowd.
He turned and flashed a smile at his younger sister.
“Ge, you got this,” Yun Jian mouthed her cheer for him soundlessly.. In return, she received her brother’s firm nod.
