As Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian’s wedding had a lot of guests today, Yun Jian had booked the entire place.
The Crystal Rhythm Hotel was a four-star hotel. It was not exactly the largest place but it was absolutely not small in scale too. At the very least, its tables and chairs sufficed to receive the personages coming from across the globe, as well as Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian’s family and friends, and the village folks who had kindly helped Qin Yirou with the wedding procession in the morning.
As for now, the heads of the most important departments in Gu Sha Mercenaries, intelligence, assassination and investigation—Diane, Phantom Flame and Spectral Refiner were seated at the round table with only dining utensils available but had no dishes. Three of them were playing cards.
“Hah, last card! Hahaha, you guys lost!”
Before Yun Jian could reach them, she saw the head of the assassination department, Phantom Flame, had a leg up on the stool in an unladylike manner and was hooking her finger at Diane and Spectral Flame.
“We agreed on one million! It’s laid, it’s played. Cough it up now!” Phantom Flame looked alluring and delicious when she smiled.
With a small smile, Yun Jian was going to go over to them when she heard Gu Nian who was being held by Qing You yell, “Oh god, stop pulling my arms. They’re so sore! Hey, make her loosen her grip. Come on, just a bit. I won’t kill you anymore, I promise.”
Gu Nian’s arms were pinned and dragged by Qing You all this while like she was a caught criminal. Her arms were incredibly sore and she finally called out to Yun Jian.
What she said did make Yun Jian turn around and look at her.
Gu Nian had just been grumbling and muttering, not expecting Yun Jian to care about her, but when the latter turned to her, she told her with sparkling eyes, “Hurry up, make her loosen her hold! Or you can let me go directly. I’ll go back to Yulong Mainland. At most I’ll give the assassination bounty back to the board, tell them I’m not killing you—I’m not taking this mission anymore!”
“Deal? Heh, look, I’m so cute. Let go of me...”
Gu Nian pouted and acted pitiful. If others who were clueless about the situation saw how Gu Nian was behaving, they might even think that she was innocent.
“Let go of you?” Yun Jian squinted and smirked, going over to pat Gu Nian on her cheek under the girl’s anticipating gaze.
“Mn, mn!” Gu Nian nodded fervently like a pecking chicken.
“Letting you go is impossible, my cute little captive,” Yun Jian said with a grin and a soft pinch at Gu Nian’s supple cheek.
Not too long after she spoke, a group of people came in through the doors. Ms. Lu, who Yun Jian had just ignored just now, was among this group of people.
She was currently hooking arms with her husband and holding her son’s hand. Due to how Yun Jian had ignored her just now, she was irked as she thought that she was a teacher while the girl was nothing more than a child!
Ms. Lu made her way forward directly without the plan to greet Yun Jian or talk to her. Hah, she scoffed, she would like to see who was more dignified now!
The teacher had come in mixed among the group of people but she knew none of them. These people were the village folks who had come from Xinjiang Town for Qin Yirou’s wedding. When they saw Yun Jian, they went to her to greet her at once.
“Yirou’s daughter! You’re already here! Haha!” someone came and greeted first.
Ms. Lu was disdainful when she saw how they were sucking up to Yun Jian. On the contrary, she felt that she was umpteenth time more noble than Yun Jian—she was a teacher!
Just as she thought that, she heard someone else speaking up about Yun Jian. “She has to! Yirou’s daughter is the director of New Cruise. Of course she has to be here to take care of the ceremony! Haha!”
The abrupt mention of “the director of New Cruise” made Ms.. Lu who knew nothing froze on the spot.
