Before Yun Jian managed to step out of the arena, Zhang Shaofeng’s impatient voice came from behind. “Master, master! Master, wait for us...”
Turning slightly, Yun Jian looked up at them with a small smile. “The knock-out match is over. It’s already dark outside, we should go home now.”
Zhang Shaofeng and the teenagers who caught up to her could not help biting their tongues while thinking, “Shouldn’t you be providing some sort of explanation?”
“Master, what went on just now? Why were you the one to fight the foreigner? And your pose just then, it was awesome! Oh yeah, how did you throw the knife like that? That was marvelous! It’s like Legend of Dagger Li...” Zhao Shaofeng’s words left his lips like a running machine gun.
“Stop,” Yun Jian’s order sounded.
Zhang Shaofeng clamped his mouth together immediately without a second word.
“How am I supposed to answer you when you’re bombarding me with so many questions?” Yun Jian furrowed her eyebrows together and beamed bashfully like a young lady.
It was like she had transformed into a fresh, pretty, youthful girl now, as if the girl who stood superior over Shiniji just now had never existed.
“Uh... then let’s answer them one by one. Master, why was it you who fought the foreigner today? And why didn’t you tell us about these earlier?” Zhang Shaofeng asked the question that was on everyone’s mind.
Pairs of black beady eyes stared at Yun Jian.
The girl pressed her lips together before parting them. She lifted her hand and snapped her fingers loudly in the air before grinning at Zhang Shaofeng. “Guess.”
She then turned around, not planning to actually answer the question.
In spite of it, she did not expect the band of teenagers to follow her closely, pleading for her to teach them the methods of her tremendous feat. Even Gu Hao was tailing tight and had apologized to her regarding his earlier actions.
It caused Zhang Shaofeng to boast rather childishly at the rest of the group. “This is my master!”
Finally separating herself from Zhang Shaofeng and the rest of the group who were pestering her for answers, Yun Jian headed home.
The night was breezy, especially when it was now nearing winter. The weather was erratic and the temperature difference between day and night was huge.
Yun Jian had a jacket with her but she could still feel the cold.
When she walked past a streetlight, a speeding sports car screeched to a stop beside her.
Not expecting the car to stop, Yun Jian pulled the jacket over herself tighter and turned around to see Si Yi looking back at her in his Lamborghini sports car. His chiseled outline was even more pronounced under the lighting.
“Hop on.” The two words left Si Yi’s good looking lips.
Without making a fuss, Yun Jian pulled the door open and sat in the passenger seat.
Yun Jian’s body temperature was welcomed to the warmth of the car’s heater.
“Are you trying to freeze yourself to death by wearing so little every time?” Si Yi adjusted the heater a notch higher with a glance at Yun Jian.
She opened her mouth but realized that she didn’t have a comeback. In the end, she asked, “What can I help you with?”
Si Yi paused, his impeccably handsome face looked a hint more friendly. “I’m taking you to a banquet. We’ll be back tomorrow. I’ve already told my aunt, you don’t have to worry about not going home.”
There was no room for argument as he stepped on the accelerator and sped off.
When Yun Jian broke out of her trance, she was already behind the mountainous region and was boarding Si Yi’s personal jet to Country M.
Yun Jian exclaimed inwardly. Ah, she got tricked.
