The moment Hu Batian swung the knives toward Yun Jian, a butterfly knife that was much faster than his followed the trail of wind and went straight to his heart.
Just two seconds before Hu Batian’s two knives were about to stab Yun Jian, the butterfly knife in the latter’s hand had pierced his chest.
Hu Batian widened his eyes in shock at Yun Jian’s speed. His eyes bulged at the girl who was smiling so brightly in the darkness like the grim reaper. Suddenly feeling his heart squeeze in his chest, Hu Batian could feel the squelch of the penetration when the butterfly knife drove right into his thumping heart.
He felt himself falling backward and looked at Yun Jian in both disbelief and as if understanding something.
“Why... I see...”
‘Why could you still kill me when I attacked first?’
‘You’re really Slaying God. I see why you could actually kill me...’
Before Hu Batian could say either of that, he succumbed to the stab and fell backward in an arc. When he ultimately landed and the second before he lost all consciousness, Hu Batian heard the last words in his life—”Because I’m Slaying God”.
He had to die because she was Slaying God.
Just as Yun Jian’s words sounded, Hu Batian’s eyes fell close forever.
“Sister Jian!” Snake.Lizard, Tiger.Leopard and the “cab driver” called the girl in unison when they came back.
The cab driver was none other than Civet who mastered the art of disguise. After she was done with Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian’s makeup, she killed Hu Batian’s driver and disguised as the latter to drive the man to the road leading to the highway. That was how the flawless plan earlier was hatched.
“Mn.” Yun Jian nodded at the three of them and spoke up ultimately, “Take care of the corpse. The trip today is not in vain.”
It was truly a fruitful trip because she found out something. Hu Batian had disclosed a secret before he died—the mysterious person controlling Inferno Ring was from Yulong Mainland!
Although Hu Batian had attempted to kill Yun Jian using this secret, the girl could identify the truth. The mysterious person controlling Inferno Ring was really from Yulong Mainland!
Everything else seemed to make sense after finding this piece of information out.
Her younger brother’s abduction and subsequent murder in their previous life were orchestrated by Inferno Ring while the organization was then annihilated by Yun Jian and Si Yi. They later discovered that there was someone else who was manipulating the organization behind the curtain.
With what happened to Yun Jian after that, including the assassination attempts and whatnot, it could be deduced that everything had to do with that mysterious person!
Since the assassination attempt at Yun Jian, she and Si Yi had not given up investigating about it—Si Yi, specifically. He was the one who told Yun Jian all that she had known, and today, she finally discovered that the mysterious person was from Yulong Mainland!
By the time Yun Jian returned to the Crystal Rhythm Hotel, it was already 7:30pm.
The venue was more or less cleared and Qin Yirou was sent back to Ge Junjian’s place. The man’s comrades had followed them back merrily with their sleeves rolled up and teases that they were joining the banter ritual of the bridal chamber.
Once Yun Jian got out of the car, she saw Si Yi coming to her.
“Where have you gone to?” the young man asked softly as he held her hand.
“To kill someone.” Yun Jian beamed with her eyes. Her voice was soft, only audible to the both of them.
“Why didn’t you ask me to join?” Hearing what she said, Si Yi pulled Yun Jian into his embrace with a tug at her hand.
