“You... You’re the rumored director of Dime And Prime Company?” Maine widened her eyes in disbelief at Yun Jian, looking at her with a dropped jaw, once she heard what Fox said.
Maine currently looked like a pathetic beggar who was questioning Yun Jian incredulously. She could care less about the throbbing pain from getting hit by the teacup as she stared at Yun Jian in bafflement.
Fox who stood on a nearby step looked down at Maine in condescendence and scoffed before replying her on behalf of Yun Jian, “Of course Sister Jian is Dime And Prime Company’s director!”
Fox was unlike Alluring Demon. She was first an assassin from Gu Sha Mercenaries and later worked under Alluring Demon. As for Alluring Demon, she was a daughter of a bankrupted wealthy businessman who Yun Jian had saved back then; she was not an assassin or a secret agent but she had mastered basic self-defense.
When Yun Jian saved Alluring Demon, the latter’s talent in business management was what caught her eyes.
Alluring Demon knew Yun Jian’s identity as Slaying God. She was loyal to Yun Jian since she had saved her during her family’s bankruptcy. Moreover, she was running Dime And Prime Company now, so her international status was reputable.
It was just that while Alluring Demon’s skill could fight a big group of regular people, she was far from being able to keep up with advanced assassins or secret agents. After all, she was only talented in business management. She used to be a rich man’s daughter and had been born with a silver spoon with people at her beck and call. The self-defense was acquired much later.
This was also why Yun Jian had sent Fox to assist Alluring Demon. As someone from Gu Sha Mercenaries, Fox could at least fight three advanced secret agents on her own. This had also ranked her within top 20 on the international secret agent chart.
As Fox came from Gu Sha Mercenaries, she was more aware of the status of both Yun Jian’s Gu Sha Mercenaries and Yun Jian herself in the world compared to Alluring Demon. That was why she did not act courteous to Maine.
Even though Maine was the heiress of Hachi Company’s director, the company could easily be wiped off from this world if Gu Sha Mercenaries wanted to in case of Hachi wanting to confront Gu Sha.
Fox’s answer surprised Maine and Maier. It was after that, that Maine recalled Fox’s tone when she spoke to her.
“And what are you? You’re just a dog going after your master. How dare you talk to me in a tone like that? Do you want to die?”
Knowing now that Yun Jian was Dime And Prime’s director, Maine could not bear to lose her pride further, so she shifted her target to Fox now that she dared not confront Yun Jian.
To Maine, Fox was just a minion of Dime And Prime Company since Yun Jian was the director. How dare an underling like her disrespect her so much?
“Maine, shush!” Maier scolded his younger sister at once.
Maine pouted at her brother’s nagging. Just as she was about to continue speaking, she caught a smooth and fair hand coming for her from the corner of her eye.
The next second, a resounding slap rang in the air. All Maine felt was her cheek being hit violently and she was sent falling to the floor. By the time she recovered from the pang, she saw the owner of the hand standing in front of her.
Yun Jian cracked an icy smirk at Maine. “Do you believe that I’ll make Hachi Company a thing of the past just for the impulsive words from someone like you who dared cuss at me?”
