Chapter 325- Ten Years Revenge

“Because I admire him!” The cool girl was trying to sound cute, but had no such expression on her face- it felt off.

“Admire him?” Lin Yi curled his lips, amused. “I’m sorry, I really don’t know him, but it doesn’t seem like you actually admire or respect him? A girl like you coming to Blue Town talking about how you admire the Bluewater mafia boss, you think anyone would believe that?”

The cool girl’s face tensed up for an unnoticeable instant. “Of course. What’s else?”

“What else?” Lin Yi hmphed. “I’ll tell you what else, there’s a SUV that’s been tailing us, do you know the people in there?”

“SUV?” The cool girl turned behind her after a pause, a brief instant of rage appearing on her face. “I don’t.”

“You don’t? Alright then, I’ll shake them off.” Lin Yi switched up the gear and the sedan rumbled and charged with a burst like a wild horse- they were instantly a far distance away from the SUV when Lin Yi swerved into a smaller road, turning left and right and left and right again, making his way into an alley before the SUV even caught up to the first turn.

The cool girl stared at Lin Yi, completely taken aback. “How… Why’re you so good at driving?”

“You sure have a lot of questions, don’t you? You’ve been asking me non-stop the whole time, so what exactly are you up to?” Lin Yi got right to the point- he was getting impatient with this girl.

She’d looked familiar, and she was an Eastern girl like he was- he wouldn’t have picked her up for a ride if he’d known about the trouble he’d get involved in. She’d been asking weird questions too, and there was no way she was just a regular tourist now that an SUV had been tailing her. Lin Yi wanted to have nothing to do with her as soon as possible.

“Who exactly are you? You’re not a member of the Waterblue?” The girl realized that something was up as well- she’d seen how Lin Yi was a Bluewater member coming out from HQ, but that didn’t seem like the case at all! The guy didn’t even know the roads here, he’d only shaken the SUV off because of how good his driving skills were!

Lin Yi had driven the car into an alley, too- an alley with a dead end, with a junkyard in front of them. There was no way to run, and the place had evidently been abandoned… There was no way a local Bluewater would lack the geographical knowledge to get himself stuck in an alley like this.

There’d been chances for him to go left or right before he reached the dead end, but Lin Yi did no such thing- he just drove straight on, evidently unaware of the dead end ahead!

He said he didn’t know about Kanha Hotel, either… Something was wrong!

“I’m not!” Lin Yi admitted candidly. “I was just buying a car, and the hat was a gift!”

“......” The girl didn’t know what to say- she frowned in frustration. Was she really this horrible in the field?

She’d gotten hurt when going on her first mission, and now that the injuries had finally healed she’d taken on a second mission only to have her family tailing her to protect her..?

On top of that was a failure that made her feel the worst- she’d mistaken someone else for a Bluewater member, spilling needless information to him!

The guy was now suspicious of her, and the chances for her mission’s success were looking quite slim.

With that in mind, the cool girl’s hand moved and a knife flashed right at Lin Yi’s chest.

Lin Yi caught the hand with a smack.

“You-!” The girl wasn’t expecting this at all- she was inexperienced, but still a top tier combatant in terms of physical ability! She wouldn’t have been allowed on a solo mission by her family otherwise!

She was very confident in her abilities- as far as she was concerned, Lin Yi was defenseless and had been focusing on reversing the car.

And yet he’d managed to catch her hand under that distraction- she tried to pull her hand back after the initial shock, to no avail. Lin Yi wasn’t letting her go at all.

“You- let go of me!!” The girl sent her other fist at Lin Yi’s face as she spoke.

Lin Yi frowned as he tilted his head to avoid it. “Didn’t you go read that story about Mister Dongguo after you went back? Were you even listening at all?”

The girl froze, pausing her attacks as disbelief filled her eyes. “Y-You… You… You’re that guy who molested me??”

“I’m your savior!” Lin Yi corrected. “I saved your life, but look what you did? You tried to kill me! I even gave you a ride today, answering all of your questions for free, and here you are trying to kill me again.”

“You……” Yang Qiqi’s cool face looked upset and wronged- she was afraid that he’d ruin her plans, she had to have him killed! And it had been his fault for touching and looking at her body that other time, too, she wouldn’t have tried to kill him otherwise!

Lin Yi had been observing this cool girl the whole car ride, trying to remember where he’d seen her face before… That knife she stabbed at him was what made him recall- this was that female assassin he’d met at the pharmacy back in Songshan!

“'You', 'you', 'you', stop saying ‘you’!!” Lin YI frowned. “Get out before I count to three! Don’t let me see your pretty face again, miss ungrateful. I won’t go easy on you next time.”

Lin Yi admitted that Qiqi was pretty, but having a murderous assassin around him was not something he was very keen on. Although, the jade would always warn him before she attacked him.

Qiqi’s looked pretty upset- she stared at Lin Yi angrily. “Fine, I’ll get out! But I’ll come back for you, even if it takes ten years to beat you!!”

“Try to stay alive that long first.” Lin Yi replied casually.
