Taking a glimpse and seeing Duan Tianyou scurry to the side like a toadying dog upon seeing the butterfly knife in her hand, Yun Jian could not help scoffing coldly and planned to head upstairs.
Just as she was about to do that, she heard two kneeling thuds sounding from the floor of the first floor behind her. She casted her eyes down and squinted, turning to see the inn owners, who were Elisha’s parents, getting on their knees before her.
The name of Elisha’s father was Zatana and her mother was Aveir. Both of them were down to earth, lawful citizens of Country A.
Yun Jian raised a brow at the sight of them kneeling in front of her without a care for their image before she heard Elisha’s father, Zatana, making a hard kowtow toward the middle of the stairs where Yun Jian was. He was heard speaking at the same time, in Country A’s language that Hu Qirui and friends could not understand.
“Elisha is the only daughter to my wife and I. She’s our life! Young lady, I know that you’re capable but you don’t want to get involved.”
“My wife and I are old. We can’t lose our daughter! I’d like to ask for your help to save her!”
“I know that this request is too much to ask for and I can see that you’re used to that butterfly knife.”
“If you agree to our request, I’ll give you our family heirloom that’s been passed down for generations! It’s a dagger that’s incredibly sharp. One who owns it can cut anything with it!”
“Its blade can cut through steel, easily chopping metal pieces into shreds like it was slicing tofu!”
“As long as you agree to save our daughter, I can modify it into a butterfly knife and give it to you!”
Zatana spoke sincerely and was unlike Duan Tianyou who sounded like he was ordering Yun Jian. Zatana had kneeled before Yun Jian and was exchanging his family heirloom for the favor.
Hearing what the man said, Yun Jian was tempted. As an assassin or a secret agent, there was no doubt that the idea of possessing a divine weapon was tempting.
In spite of it, Yun Jian had only heard of the knife that Zatana mentioned. The current technology standard could yet produce a knife so sharp but there had been someone who had dug up an incredibly sharp knife from the ancient ruins and it was said that the knife could cut steel as easy as slicing tofu.
Yun Jian did not expect Zatana to have it at home.
The reason Zatana did not bring up his family heirloom before this, at all, was because he was scared of the bandits coming to rob it. He could no longer help it now as Elisha was his only daughter. If he had to watch her get abducted and not know whether she would be sent back, he would rather give his family heirloom to this young girl.
Even before he made the decision, he had felt that the force of his family heirloom dagger matched this young lady with an intimidating presence!
“What’s the stupid Country A old man rambling on about? Did he think she’ll save the girl just because he got on his knees?”
“She didn’t even want to save Xiaochu when I asked her to. Would this old man be able to convince her? Pft, dream on!”
Duan Tianyou was unable to ask Yun Jian for help and could not understand Country A’s language but he could sense that what Zatana was telling Yun Jian while kneeling down was none other than asking her to save his daughter.
Hu Qirui and his other friends thought that Yun Jian would not agree either.
It was at that moment that they saw Yun Jian smiling and replying to Zatana in Chinese, “I agree.”
