When Shi Laixiang spoke, she even shook Shi Yichuan’s arm, an attempt to act cute and childlike.
However, her words made everyone’s eyes bulged.
Asking members of the globally renowned and ruthless assassin organizations to be nice?
Shi Laixiang must be a special type of fool!
Could she ever live long enough to be at the receiving end of their politeness?
The guests scoffed but no one dared to speak aloud in front of Yun Jian and the members, afraid of becoming involved.
Shi Yichuan’s legs wobbled when he heard what his daughter said. Suppressing his volume, he growled at Shi Laixiang, “Xiang’er, shut up!”
Lo and behold, Shi Laixiang did not even notice the change in atmosphere as she shouted even more self-righteously, “Dad! They’re at fault! They were rude! You’ve always taught me to be polite. Those who are rude are inferior and vulgar people who will never be welcomed!”
Shi Laixiang spoke so assuredly that she thought that she was being high-minded.
When Shi Yichuan heard what her daughter said, he was wobbling into a puddle of goo from how horrifically terrified he was.
He could hear quite obviously, that his daughter was indirectly criticizing Yun Jian.
“Shi Laixiang, shut up right now!” Shi Yichuan pointed a quivering finger at his daughter, bellowing her full name. – Not like he could explain the situation to his daughter now.
Offending the Gu Sha members would probably cause the Shi Family to be annihilated!
Gu Sha Mercenaries was an organization of international elite assassins. These people’s hands were doused in blood and their abilities so were alarmingly strong that one would be terrorized just looking at them.
Simply put, it was a walk in the park for Gu Sha Mercenaries to wipe out the entire Shi Family!
“Dad, you’re being mean to me again!” Shi Laixiang felt very wronged, becoming increasingly mad that Yun Jian had stolen her limelight in the banquet.
Yun Jian had, of course, heard the conversation between Shi Laixiang and Shi Yichuan. She wore a smirk as she glanced sideways at them, However she said nothing, not at all bothered by Shi Laixiang’s words.
She had met more than enough people like Shi Laixiang in both her previous and current life.
If she killed Shi Laixiang because of her words, then she would have to kill too many people in this world.
Certainly, if Shi Laixiang were to do anything more than talk, Yun Jian would make sure that she regretted ever being born.
Si Chu broke out in cold sweat, immensely regretful.
Never in his dreams would he think that Yun Jian could have Gu Sha’s member act compliantly towards her.
Once he recalled what his retort at Yun Jian not long ago and what he was about to do to her, goosebumps racked through him.
“Miss Yun, our ill discernment just now has caused us to make a huge blunder. Please don’t mind it.” Petrified, Si Chu’s attitude toward Yun Jian took a complete one-eighty.
Si Yi blinked. Standing beside Yun Jian, they wore matching smiles while maintaining a cold smirk toward Si Chu’s attitude.
Simultaneously, he exchanged a look with Snow Eagle who stood nearby.
“What if... I mind?” Yun Jian beamed while side-eyeing Si Chu, causing the latter to tremble.
Feeling his heart lurched, Si Chu’s back was drenched in sweat. In spite of it, he had years of experience and was familiar with various social situations. Briefly, he put on a calm front and said, “Miss Yun’s lofty nature speaks of generosity. Of course, you wouldn’t be petty like us!”
It was clear.
If Yun Jian insisted, it would instead reflect that she was petty.
Yun Jian smiled sweetly. With pressed lips, she followed Si Chu’s words. “Of course I won’t care about it.”
However, after a slight pause, she grinned. “But I’m unhappy and I want something from you.”
“What is it?” Si Chu and Shi Yichuan who were further away asked in unison.
“Him.” Yun Jian pointed at Si Yi with beaming crescent eyes.
