Under Yun Jian’s unwavering stare, Si Yi wore a charismatic expression as he nodded and replied, “Yes. After coming back to Longmen City to see you, I’ll be departing for the catacomb.”
Even if no one survived after going into the crypt, he still had to go for a certain reason, even when he had to pay the price with his life.
That was why he had come to see her before he went off.
Yun Jian had a slight frown when she heard him. After a two-second silence, she said, “Come back alive.”
This was the most touching words she had ever said. As a secret agent in her previous life, she was numb from the many assassinations. Her only faith was to stay alive, no matter what.
To her, Si Yi was the only one who could make her say such words, be it in her previous life or the current one.
Si Yi turned to her with a smile. “For sure.”
Though, they had not spent a long time together. However, some feelings changed unknowingly.
Si Yi left after driving Yun Jian back to the mansion.
Yun Jian did not know what feelings she harbored as of now. She had gradually noticed that her feelings for Si Yi were different from the feelings for her brother, Yun Yi, Zhang Shaofeng, or the rest of the people she knew.
The soft coziness made her heart jolt.
For the days that followed, Yun Jian trained at the military training base on the weekends and went to school as usual on weekdays.
During the days in school, she trained Zhang Shaofeng daily. Like what the boy had promised earlier, he did not complain or whine no matter how tiring or arduous the training was.
Ling Yichen came uninvited when Zhang Shaofeng was training, only participating in the morning run and workout together with the latter.
This caused some of the girls in school to think that the two handsome boys, Zhang Shaofeng and Ling Yichen, must have gone crazy.
Ling Yichen, especially, did not even care about the girls who expressed their admiration for him. Despite recently changing girlfriends like he changes outfits and usual enjoyment of teasing pretty girls. It made plenty of girls in school sad for some time.
When school dismissed on Friday, Yun Jian exited the school gate with Chen Xinyi, Zhang Shaofeng, and Ling Yichen. As they passed by somewhere more barren, they were suddenly blocked by a person.
Feeling the eerie atmosphere, Yun Jian who was always alert was about to fight when she saw who it was.
The person was a young girl looking naïve and innocent with two neat braids on her shoulders.
Yun Jian recognized then and there that she was Snake.Lizard’s subordinate, also one of the high-ranking members of Gu Sha Mercenaries. Her alias was Civet.
Civet looked like a sixteen or seventeen year old teenage girl but she was actually twenty-five years old. She had a babyface.
When the three teenagers aside from Yun Jian saw Civet’s unannounced appearance, they jumped in a startle and were at a loss.
“Did she ask you to come?” Yun Jian asked with a raised brow.
‘She’ naturally referred to Snake.Lizard.
“Yes.” Civet nodded and retrieved a car key from her pocket to pass to Yun Jian.
“She’s asked me to send the car key over,” Civet explained.
In fact, Snake.Lizard had sent Civet to deliver the car key here and the latter was only carrying out the order of her superior.
Civet did not know who Yun Jian was.
No one was able to come close to someone like Yun Jian in her previous life other than her close right-hand men.
Civet, Snake.Lizard’s subordinate, was no exception.
Yun Jian caught the key that Civet threw to her and asked, “Where’s the car?”
She had received Snake.Lizard’s text earlier that she would dispatch someone to send Yun Jian’s favorite car over.
“It’s inside.” Civet pointed at an alley with a dead end and said, “The car’s here, I’ll take my leave.”
She turned to leave without any more hesitation. Her mission was merely to hand over the vehicle.
As the conversation was carried out, the young trio who stood aside were incredibly befuddled.
In spite of it, Yun Jian was already making her way to the alley. They quickly followed her.
Making a turn, a bright red sports car was parked there.
It was shiny and rich in luster, the exterior was crafted dashingly, forming a stark contrast from the scenery around it.
“Oh my gosh, this is a supercar! It’s Ferrari’s limited edition LaFerrari! There are only three units for sale in the world!” Ling Yichen was so baffled that his eyes were bulging as he exclaimed in excitement while pointing at the vehicle.
