Chapter 249: Villainous Bestie (9)
Upon hearing Bai Tingting’s advice, Xia Beibei raised her eyebrows and shot a fierce glare at Huo Yuxu once again before slowly sitting back down, saying, “I won’t lower myself to the level of a lazy pig!”
“Wu Yan…you’ve got guts!”
After saying these words, Huo Yuxu quickly picked up his school uniform and left the classroom.
“Ha,” Xia Beibei rolled her eyes while Bai Tingting looked at her worriedly.
“Wu Yan, this is bad. Will Huo Yuxu seek revenge on you? How about I accompany you home after school? I’m worried about you!”
“Don’t worry, it’s fine,” Xia Beibei waved her hand at Bai Tingting. “You need to go home and help your younger siblings with their studies. Don’t mind me. If he dares to cause trouble, I am more than welcome to entertain him!”
Xia Beibei didn’t take Bai Tingting’s words to heart. However, as she walked along the street as usual after school, she unexpectedly ran into trouble.
A white van suddenly sped up to Xia Beibei, and a group of people jumped out of the car, quickly dragging her into the vehicle.
Oh my gosh, am I being kidnapped?
“Don’t scream!” A somewhat familiar voice suddenly reached Xia Beibei’s ears. It sounded fierce but strangely familiar.
Xia Beibei immediately tensed up, showing a terrified expression on her face. At the same time, she couldn’t help but glance at the figure beside her and found the person somewhat familiar, bringing a sense of relief.
It can’t be a coincidence, right? Isn’t he one of the henchmen of that “fire turkey” guy who attacked Wu Yan at the bar that one time?
Back then, his accidental blow landed on Wu Yan’s vulnerable spot and nearly cost her life.
“I won’t scream, I won’t scream, please don’t hurt me! I’ll give you as much money as you want!” Xia Beibei pleaded as she felt a cold knife pressing against her waist.
“Hmph,” the man beside her coldly chuckled in response to Xia Beibei’s words. “Money will naturally come to us. We’re here to collect payment for others. This time, we’ll give you a lesson you’ll never forget.”
“Did Huo Yuxu send you?” Xia Beibei naturally thought of Huo Yuxu, whom she had argued with earlier. But upon closer reflection, would that brat stoop to such a level?
Hmph, does he even have a conscience?
“It seems you’ve made quite a few enemies,” the man responded to Xia Beibei. “But we won’t reveal our employer.”
The white van continued to speed down the street and soon brought Xia Beibei to a remote and desolate area.
“Get out!” They pushed Xia Beibei out of the car without warning, causing her to fall. Her clean school uniform was immediately stained with dirt.
“You little b***h, today we’re going to teach you a lesson!”
Xia Beibei suddenly recalled scenes from TV dramas as she watched the menacing people approach her. With a strong sense of dramatic flair, she instinctively recited familiar lines, “What do you want? Don’t come any closer! I’ll scream if you take another step!”
“Heh,” the group leader laughed disdainfully upon hearing her words. “We’re in the middle of nowhere. Go ahead and scream! Maybe you’ll summon a ghost! Haha!”
After hearing the man’s words, Xia Beibei blinked and looked behind the men. Her pupils suddenly contracted, and she shouted in terror, “Ghost! There’s a real ghost!”
“You cheeky brat, trying to fool us…” The man’s words were cut short as a cold hand slapped his shoulder.
His body immediately froze, and the next moment, an extremely cold and sinister voice echoed from behind him, “Are you tired of living?”
The man’s body began to tremble uncontrollably. “I…I…” Before he could finish his sentence, he passed out in a faint.
So unimpressed, how did you become gangsters’ lackeys? Do you have any professional ethics left?
Although she wanted to make fun of the situation in her heart, it didn’t seem like the right time. Xia Beibei couldn’t help but slowly stand up as she looked at the man who had appeared in the darkness of the night.
He wasn’t alone; he had four henchmen with him, all looking menacing, even more so than the thugs who worked for the “fire turkey.”
Of course, the man in front of her, whose face was covered in blood, looked even more intimidating compared to those four.
“Are you okay?” The man glanced at Xia Beibei, asking in a low voice while subconsciously pulling a handkerchief from his pocket, politely wiping his face.
Why does this seem so familiar?
As the man cleaned the blood from his face, his pale and somewhat eerie features were revealed in the moonlight.
“Boss, what should we do with these people?” At this moment, one of the man’s henchmen stepped forward and asked quietly. All four had a sinister look, making them seem far from good people.
Of course, compared to these four, the man in front of her, with blood smeared on his face, appeared even more terrifying.
“It’s convenient to bury them together with the traitors,” the man responded with a cold smile, tugging at the corner of his lips.
Xia Beibei: Dad, am I witnessing a murder scene? I’m so scared!
There was silence for a moment at the scene, and Xia Beibei heard the sound of the men moving bodies—well, not bodies yet, but they would be soon.
“I’m fine,” Xia Beibei finally came to her senses and realized that her entire attention was on the man before her. She smiled at him and said, “Thank you for your help, although I didn’t need it. My name is Wu Yan. What’s yours?”
“Xie Jincheng,” the man replied, looking into Xia Beibei’s eyes as he spoke his name.
Young Master Xie?
Xia Beibei was momentarily stunned. Wasn’t that the character from the plot that Xuan Jingran had mentioned? And in this city, there seemed to be only one well-known Xie family with that reputation—the military arms dealer, the Xie family.
“Boss, it’s done!”
After the henchmen had cleaned up the entire scene, Xie Jincheng glanced at Xia Beibei. “Let’s go. I’ll take you home.”
He didn’t say much and didn’t ask for her address, but his offer sounded quite natural.
“Oh, okay,” Xia Beibei said calmly, following behind him.
Xie Jincheng’s vehicle was an ultra-luxurious extended Bentley. Once Xia Beibei got inside, the man handed her a box of juice that had been on the bar counter. “Have a drink first. I’ll take you to eat later. You are hungry, right?”
“Yeah,” Xia Beibei replied, almost on the verge of tears. “I’m really hungry. Those darn kidnappers didn’t even let me have a meal before they acted!”
Will they still be called kidnappers if they discuss time with you?
“What would you like to eat?” He smiled gently and turned to look at Xia Beibei.
“You decide. You know what I like.”
Xia Beibei blinked at Xie Jincheng, knowing she had recognized the right person. The way he made her feel left no room for doubt.
