523 A knock on the door at nigh
Just how important would a person have to be to employ a supernatural being as a bodyguard?
Zhou Yingxue said, “Showbiz is really fond of such flashy behavior. So what you mean is, I’ll only need to stand beside her whenever she attends an event, and she does not really need any protection at all?”
The middle-aged male assistant nodded and said with a smile, “Ms. Zhou truly is smart to understand so easily. Besides, the Central Plains is not that chaotic. Although there are conflicts between the consortiums, they would never do anything to celebrities. So please just stick to our planned schedule. There won’t be a need for the two of you to interfere.”
Zhou Yingxue glanced at Ren Xiaosu who showed no expression and said nothing. Zhou Yingxue immediately agreed, “Sure thing!”
After that, both parties signed the confidentiality agreement. There was even a special 200,000 yuan payment for the confidentiality fee!
Party A of the confidentiality agreement had to compensate Party B based on the terms before they could take any effect.
When Ren Xiaosu was signing the agreement, he realized the female celebrity’s real name was Li Ran, with her stage name being Ranran.
Zhou Yingxue smiled as she took the money from the man. She gave a mental sigh at the thought of how easy it was to earn the money of this celebrity.
“By the way, when are we heading out?” Zhou Yingxue asked.
“That depends on our boss’s mood.” The assistant smiled and said, “Both of you may return to your rooms to rest. My name is Fang Zhi. If anything crops up, you can leave a message at the front desk. During this period, we’ll be responsible for both your expenses incurred at the hotel. Of course, there’s a limit of 3,600 yuan per day.”
“That’s pretty good.” Zhou Yingxue raised her eyebrows.
Zhou Yingxue had thought they would set off immediately once the female singer arrived. After all, they mentioned this was a concert tour.
However, to her surprise, the other party remained at the black market for the next seven days.
Every day, the female singer would doll herself up only to go to the casino to gamble. It was as if she had come to the black market specifically for that.
Zhou Yingxue was going on and on about it in their room, “She doesn’t take us seriously at all. Master, it’s fine that she looks down on me, but how can she look down on you as well!”
Ren Xiaosu chuckled as he read his book. “Don’t try to fan the flames. It won’t work.”
But what left Ren Xiaosu speechless was that the female singer never came to find him at his room throughout the seven days. If she were really from the Saboteurs, then no matter where Yang Xiaojin was in the Central Plains, the seven days would have been enough for her to rush over.
This disappointed Ren Xiaosu a lot. He had only accepted this mission because he wanted to find Yang Xiaojin, but in the end, even Zhou Yingxue was having a laugh at his expense.
So when Ren Xiaosu realized the other party was not a member of the Saboteurs, he immediately began to lose interest in the mission. He even asked Zhou Yingxue, “Can we still cancel the mission now?”
Zhou Yingxue said helplessly, “Master, you didn’t allow me to cancel it previously when I wanted to. If I were to cancel it now, I couldn’t complete the mission.”
“Will that affect you? At worst, we’ll just return the money to her,” Ren Xiaosu said.
“That won’t work.” Zhou Yingxue explained, “Master, you probably don’t know about the rules of the Anjing House, right? An A-rank hitman needs to complete five A-rank missions within the year, and there can’t be any mission failures during that period either. Only then can I participate in the trials to enter the Anjing House when they take place next year.”
“You can’t even fail once?” Ren Xiaosu frowned. “Then when do the Anjing House trials usually start?”
“They normally start notifying the qualified hitmen at the beginning of spring.” Zhou Yingxue said, “It’s fall now, so we still have two more missions to complete before spring arrives. I’ve already completed two missions, and this bodyguard mission is the third, so I still need two more to qualify.”
“But this bodyguard mission will take quite some time,” Ren Xiaosu said with a sigh. Previously, it was Zhou Yingxue who did not want to accept the mission, but now it was the other way around. Ren Xiaosu really wanted to turn down this mission.
After all, if it weren’t for Yang Xiaojin, he would not even want to follow such a pretentious female celebrity on some concert tour.
But on the seventh night, when Ren Xiaosu was alone in his room, he suddenly heard a knock on the door.
He picked up his pistol and walked to the door. “Who is it?”
The female celebrity’s drunken voice came from outside. “Weren’t you the one who gave me your room number?”
Ren Xiaosu immediately opened the door and said excitedly, “Where’s Yang Xiaojin?”
The female celebrity entered the room and locked the door behind her. Ren Xiaosu could only see that her face was flushed red from the alcohol she had. Then, with a look of interest, she lifted the hemline of Ren Xiaosu’s shirt and gently stroked his abs. “Oh, I couldn’t tell that you had such a nice body.”
Although Ren Xiaosu looked quite thin in his clothes, it was only because his Strength and Dexterity had reached a balanced state. His understated figure would not reveal just how strong he really was.
Therefore, when the hemline of his shirt was lifted, his firm muscles could be seen. It looked extremely beautiful, picturesque as a sculpture.
However, Ren Xiaosu felt like he was being molested.
The female celebrity, Li Ran, pushed Ren Xiaosu further into the room as she said, “Since you dared to give me your room number, why’re you still acting so shy?”
Ren Xiaosu said with a dark expression, “You didn’t tell Yang Xiaojin that I was here? Are you really from the Saboteurs?”
“Yang Xiaojin? Is that your girlfriend?” Li Ran said with an enchanting smile, “I’ve already paid you two so much. If you keep me company, I can add more money. Do you know that the amount I lost tonight is enough to last you for a lifetime…”
Seeing that Li Ran was trying to take off his clothes, Ren Xiaosu decisively knocked her out.
‘Why the fuck did I give her my room number? Why would I do something so stupid!’ He looked out the window and saw no one aiming a sniper rifle at him. It looked like this was not Yang Xiaojin’s prank after all.
That girl was very fond of pranking others.
But since there was no sniper outside the window, Ren Xiaosu could ascertain that Li Ran was definitely not a member of the Saboteurs!
Zhou Yingxue’s laughter came from outside. Ren Xiaosu opened the door angrily and said, “Help her to your room so that she isn’t an eyesore here.”
Zhou Yingxue said obediently, “Yes, Master!”
But as soon as she said that, she laughed out loud again. “Master, what a close shave. You almost lost your virginity!”
The next morning, Li Ran’s assistant, Fang Zhi, came over with 200,000 yuan in cash to look for Ren Xiaosu. He said he was here to sign another confidentiality agreement with him, and that yesterday’s incident had to be kept a secret no matter what.
Ren Xiaosu found it ridiculous. Frankly, he really wanted to earn money as well, but not this way!
