Ning Meng was trembling in fear. She cautiously checked how Huo Beichen had been added into the group in the first place.
To add people into the group, one did not need to ask for permission.
Seeing that he had been added, Ning Meng quickly typed a reply, but before she could finish her sentence, a notification appeared: [Huo Beichen has left the group.]
Ning Meng tearfully typed in the group: [You guys, add Huo Beichen back into the group!]
Qi Shan: [I do not dare.]
Su Ye: [Don’t dare +1]
Ning Meng: […how do you guys think Lord Chen is gonna deal with me?]
Fei Bai: [Kill.]
Qi Shan: [Hahaha, stupid woman. You’ve gotten yourself into big trouble this time. Pray to the Gods!]
Su Ye: [Missus, I really want to help you, however, the heart is willing but the flesh is weak. How about I help you scout the area so that you can prepare yourself?]
Ning Meng: […]
She carefully clicked invite. This time, Huo Beichen immediately left the group the moment he was added.
Ning Meng was afraid to say anything, so she just asked in the group: [What happened to the last person who offended Lord Chen?]
Qi Shan: [This you’ve got to ask @Fei Bai]
Su Ye: [Yes, the last person who got into trouble was dealt with by Fei Bai. @Fei Bai]
Fei Bai: [I was counting.]
Ning Meng felt restless knowing that it was Fei Bai who had dealt with the last person: [Counting what?]
Fei Bai: [Counting the time. He should be at the bottom of the sea being eaten by shrimps. His bones should be all that’s left by now.]
This couldn’t be. She could not just sit still and wait for her death. She needed to do something!
At the company.
The temperature of the whole office dropped drastically. Su Ye and the other two were cowering in the corner like thin pieces of ice, trembling in fear. Huo Beichen arrogantly sat on his office chair, a shadow overcasting his face.
It was still fine that she had gone to look for Lin Qingbei in the morning. However, she had the time to chat with them in the group, and yet, no time to reply to him? It was because of this that Su Ye had suggested adding him into the group. He did not reject this as he thought that he should be more tolerant.
But she dared to speak this way in the group? That she could talk to them in such a friendly manner? And he was just a big block of ice? Was she that disgusted with him?
The more he thought about it, the more he was filled with anger. At this point, a notification rang on his phone: [Ning Meng has added you into the group.]
Huo Beichen tightened his jaw and immediately left the group.
Just as he left the group, the phones of the three persons simultaneously beeped or had vibrations. It was clear that they were still chatting in the group. What was the point of talking to these three if they would not talk to him personally?
Huo Beichen felt dark inside with a spark of anger still lingering. At the same time, he also had a sense of guilt. They chatted for another twenty minutes when a new notification popped up on his phone once more: [Ning Meng has added you into the group.]
Huo Beichen did not hesitate to leave the group again.
After he left the group, he quietly stared at his phone.
One minute passed, there was no activity on the phone.
Five minutes passed and there was no activity on the phone.
Huo Beichen turned toward the three people curled up in the corner and warmly asked, “You guys…”
The three guys slowly lifted their heads together and tried to look at him nicely.
Huo Beichen instructed, “Send me a text!”
“I’ll do it! I’ll do it!” Qi Shan exclaimed, taking his phone and sending him a text.
Qi Shan’s text popped up onto Huo Beichen’s phone screen: 
The phone was still functioning, there was still a signal.
His face darkened further.
