Chapter 280: Gu Yan’s Scheme
Early in the morning, Xia Beibei was sleeping soundly when she received a call from Yan Yicheng.
“Mmm, so early?”
Xia Beibei groggily climbed out of bed. After a while, she checked her phone and then rushed to the window, looking down at the car parked downstairs and the man leaning against it.
Oh my goodness!
Boss Yan is here!
Wait, why am I panicking? I need to stay calm, yes, calm!
But my little heart is still beating too fast, it’s frightening!
Xia Beibei hurriedly went to the bathroom to freshen up and then rummaged through her wardrobe to find a new outfit she had bought from Hong Kong. After taking a deep breath, she stepped out of the room.
It was early in the morning, and there weren’t many pedestrians on the street.
Yan Yicheng leaned against his car, his gaze silently fixed on the entrance of the building. Before long, Xia Beibei’s figure finally appeared.
Today, she didn’t tie her hair up. Her long hair cascaded over her shoulders, giving her a slightly more feminine charm.
Xia Beibei: …
I was so nervous that I forgot to style my hair, damn it.
“Boss Yan, good morning!”
Seeing Yan Yicheng, Xia Beibei smiled and tried to greet him calmly. However, before she could reach Yan Yicheng, her high heels tripped on a protruding brick on the road. nervousness and immediately fell forward.
Yan Yicheng stepped forward and directly helped Xia Beibei into his arms.
At this moment, for some reason, Xia Beibei suddenly remembered the scene where she was clinging to Yan Yicheng’s thigh in the office building not long ago.
It seems I act foolishly whenever I see Boss Yan!
Obviously, this baby is so witty and unparalleled, and even very smart in the mission world. Still, as soon as I returned to reality and saw Boss Yan in person, I felt inexplicably nervous.
Seeing Xia Beibei’s embarrassed expression as she hid in his arms, Yan Yicheng couldn’t help but smile. He stroked her hair and said, “I saw a breakfast shop nearby with good business. Hmm, isn’t it the one where you used to drink soy milk daily?”
“Yes… it is!” Xia Beibei smiled and then her eyes lit up, “Boss Yan, let me treat you to breakfast!”
The two of them headed to the breakfast shop on the street. The shop owner smiled when she saw Xia Beibei and approached them. Upon noticing the handsome man beside her, the shop owner’s eyes flickered, “Beibei, this is… your friend?”
Before Xia Beibei could answer, Yan Yicheng took the initiative to wrap his arm around her, asserting his dominance.
The shop owner: …
So, this is Beibei’s boyfriend! He seems to be a little more handsome than that senior from yesterday, and a bit taller too!
“Oh, welcome, welcome!”
The shop owner immediately smiled and wiped the table for the two, “Please sit here!”
Blushing, Xia Beibei sat closely next to Yan Yicheng. Then, she widened her eyes and looked at Yan Yicheng seriously, “Who’s your boyfriend? Who’s your girlfriend? Did… I agree?”
Even though she said she needed three days to consider.
It’s only the first day today, okay?
“Didn’t you agree?”
Yan Yicheng looked at Xia Beibei in surprise, then innocently questioned her.
Xia Beibei: I…
Did I agree, or… did I not?
“In any case, I said I would tell you the answer the day after tomorrow when I finish work. Did you forget?”
Xia Beibei looked at Yan Yicheng and said very seriously.
Today, she intended to go to the decompression task plane to see the situation.
She would participate in the promotion assessment tomorrow night if nothing unexpected happened. If she survived…
Xia Beibei sighed inwardly.
Life is really tough.
Seeing Xia Beibei’s changing expression and rare hesitation, Yan Yicheng’s gaze flickered. “Are you worried about the promotion assessment?”
Upon hearing Yan Yicheng’s words, Xia Beibei was taken aback.
Yan Yicheng nodded and casually grabbed Xia Beibei’s hand beside him. “Don’t be nervous. You can make it through. Even if you don’t pass, it’s okay. Your club allows for make-up exams. If you are willing to pay some price, you can seek external assistance!”
Xia Beibei took a while to react. “You mean, if I fail the first time, for the second makeup exam, you can help me?”
Yan Yicheng nodded at Xia Beibei and said, “This is your first assessment, it will get harder in the future. I don’t think you’ll need my help for the first time but after that…”
Yan Yicheng understood the system of the Interstellar Villain Club very well. While advancing to the level of a Senior Villain involves challenging tasks, they could be overcome with careful planning and seizing opportunities. However, the assessments for becoming an Elite Villain were best described as “bizarre.” As for the final assessment to become an Ultimate Villain, it was beyond what ordinary humans could endure.
So, throughout the entire Universe Grand Alliance, everyone knew that the Ultimate Villains of the Interstellar Villain Club were not normal individuals…
Thinking that perhaps Xia Beibei would also become one of those “twisted” individuals in the future, Yan Yicheng felt a faint melancholy in his heart.
At this moment, Xia Beibei was unaware of Yan Yicheng’s thoughts. Hearing him bring up the future, her gaze flickered:
She never dared to think about the future before.
After all, for someone with little life left, what more could she hope for?
And now, she dared to think, even dare to think more.
All of this was given to her by the Interstellar Villain Club. So, what was there for her to fear?
Xia Beibei smiled at Yan Yicheng and pushed a glass of soy milk before him.
Yan Yicheng didn’t say anything. He had never eaten at this street breakfast shop, and it didn’t seem particularly clean either.
But seeing Xia Beibei smiling at him, Yan Yicheng made up his mind and put the straw in, then cautiously took a sip.
The taste… wasn’t bad?
The two of them had a hearty breakfast, and even though Xia Beibei treated him, it was Yan Yicheng who paid the bill in the end.
Well, even though they only spent a dozen or so dollars, every cent still counted! For Xia Beibei, who was part of the poor masses, every penny couldn’t be wasted.
After breakfast, Yan Yicheng drove Xia Beibei to work. Not long after they left, a Lexus slowly appeared at the street corner. Naturally, the driver was Gu Yan.
Gu Yan leaned against the driver’s seat and watched Yan Yicheng’s car leave. He lowered his gaze for a moment, hesitated, then took out his phone and made an international call.
“Who is it, calling so late at night?”
A lazy and alluring female voice came from the phone.
Hearing that voice, Gu Yan smiled faintly. “Senior Sister, it’s Gu Yan. Do you remember me?”
The voice on the other end of the phone seemed to wake up a little. “I remember, what’s up?”
“Nothing much, I just saw Senior Yan and his girlfriend. I…”
“What did you say?”
The woman on the phone suddenly raised her voice a few decibels. “You mean… Yan Yicheng?”
“Yes.”Gu Yan smiled. “It’s Yan Yicheng, Senior Yan.”
The woman’s voice on the phone suddenly turned cold—
How could Yan Yicheng who once told her he would never like anyone suddenly be in a relationship?
“Senior Sister, people change. If you don’t believe me, I can’t help it.”
Gu Yan’s voice also became somewhat deep. “If it wasn’t for… Yan Yicheng’s girlfriend having some connection with me, I wouldn’t have called you.”
Upon hearing Gu Yan’s confident words, the woman on the phone hesitated momentarily. Gu Yan even heard her getting out of bed and putting on clothes. “I’ll book the earliest flight back home. Keep in touch!”
Then, the call was abruptly hung up.
Gu Yan looked at his phone in his hand, his gaze condensed for a moment—
To get what you want, you have to do whatever it takes.
He forgot who taught him this principle.
But since leaving the orphanage, Gu Yan has always kept this principle in mind. His gentle appearance was just a mask he used to deceive the world. He never thought of himself as a good person.
So, Beibei, I’m sorry.
