It was until Diane, Phantom Flame and Spectral Refiner had gone out of their sight that the crowd snapped back to themselves.
Ms. Lu had her grip on her son, an arm linked with her husband, and seemed to be quite lost from her expression.
What was the Gu Sha Mercenaries? The teacher and the others there were befuddled but from Hu Batian, Hu Chaoqun and Hua Yun’s reaction, it was evident that the organization must be something impressive!
Ms. Lu might be able to understand the significance of the word “mercenaries” but the rest who were standing around were mostly villagers from Xinjiang Town—some of them were not even schooled—how would they know what the word stood for?
While they were bewildered about Diane and company addressing Yun Jian as “Sister Jian”, Hu Batian, Hu Chaoqun and Hua Yun were paling in terror.
“Y-you... know them?” They listened to her without a problem too! Hua Yun shuddered and her eyes bulged in shock as she took in what happened.
“Who?” Yun Jian nonchalantly turned to ask the obvious with a smile.
“T-them!” The three executive department heads of Gu Sha Mercenaries! Hua Yun’s heart nearly leapt out of her chest.
Yun Jian merely chuckled but ignored the rest of them and made her way into Crystal Rhythm Hotel.
Hua Yun could not help the gulp she took as she watched.
“Darling, what should we do? She wouldn’t actually...”
Hua Yun was a little intimidated. Yun Jian actually knew people from Gu Sha Mercenaries! Nonetheless, even when Yun Jian had ordered the Gu Sha members around like that just now, the woman did not think that the girl was actually someone high ranking. It was apparent by Yun Jian’s age—how could she possibly be someone superior?
“Stop making a fuss! What are you scared of? She’s just a young girl! How scary could she be?” Hu Chaoqun was intimidated himself but he growled at his wife, Hua Yun, angrily.
Hu Chaoqun had attended the wedding today alongside his uncle, Hu Batian, with the intention of boasting about the latter.
Hu Batian’s company was one of the top 20 multinational companies in the world! Not only did an accomplishment like this make the man a big shot globally, he was a figure everyone in Country Z would rush up to get acquainted with.
With such status, Hu Batian was incredibly influential in Zhe Province’s Longmen City. It was just unexpected that the three heads of executive departments in Gu Sha Mercenaries popped up out of the blue.
Hu Chaoqun himself was panicking but he forced himself to pretend to be composed and berated Hua Yun.
“Calm down,” Hu Batian said only after Yun Jian made it some distance away with a frown locked on his face.
Yun Jian had gone farther away but Ms. Lu and family were still standing by the door dumbly.
Hu Batian’s voice was dark with a hint of menace. “No need to get anxious. She’s only a teenage kid. Anyone adequately wealthy could hire people from Gu Sha Mercenaries.”
What the elder man said mollified Hua Yun and Hu Chaoqun’s perturbed mood.
If Yun Jian was really able to order the trio around just now, her status in Gu Sha Mercenaries must be higher than the latter! But for something like this to be plausible... How old was she? And how capable could she be?
“Uncle, you mean...” Hu Chaoqun quirked a brow.
“Yes. I’m guessing that she’s hired the three leaders of the executive departments from Gu Sha to make an appearance!” Hu Batian said, analyzing seriously, before taking a two-second pause and continued, “Gu Sha Mercenaries would never get involved with us over a kid. Everything’d be fine as long as we didn’t provoke them directly!”
