Chapter 368: All Third Wheels
“In that case, would you like me to get a stage set up for you?” Tang Jinyu asked.
Jian Qi looked at him with a smile. “Yeah, sure. I’m still in need of a male lead. Why don’t you take up the role?”
Tang Jinyu snorted. “It was a rhetorical question. You really are full of yourself.”
“Instructor Tang gave me the offer. I most definitely need to show my respect!”
Tang Jinyu sighed somewhat helplessly. “You two, get in here!”
Jian Qi beamed joyfully.
She was happy as long as he did not ask her to leave.
After Tang Jinyu turned around, Jian Qi jumped out nimbly from her hidden spot near the window.
While everyone was observing her, they pondered in their minds, ‘How many times has she done this without them realizing?’
Meanwhile, Lu Yao walked in through the front door with a solemn expression on his face.
“Lightning, get the others who are still training to gather here in the study!” Tang Jinyu ordered.
Lightning nodded with a smile before he left.
Once Jian Qi had entered, she quickly began moving toward Tang Jinyu’s desk. However, she was stopped instantly. “Jian Qi, sit over there!”
Jian Qi immediately stopped walking.
‘D*mn it. Why can’t he be a little slower?’
Jian Qi wished that she could at least peek at the pile of documents on Tang Jinyu’s desk.
By then, Tang Jinyu had already stepped closer to her. Therefore, Jian Qi had no choice but to turn around and walk toward the stool in the corner.
She wondered to what extent Tang Jinyu was cautious when it came to her.
He might as well have asked her to squat next to the door.
After Jian Qi sat down, she looked at Crocodile who was next to her. “What were you guys talking about earlier?”
“The mission of cooperating with the anti-terrorism team this time around.” Crocodile chuckled. “Big Sister Qi, what were you doing hiding with Lu Yao near the window earlier?”
“I was prepared to give Instructor Tang a surprise. Who would have expected Instructor Lu to suddenly get in my way?” Jian Qi sounded relatively calm.
Meanwhile, Lu Yao gritted his teeth as he continued to stare at Jian Qi.
‘I really want to beat her up!’
‘She’s lying through her teeth!’
Lu Yao was annoyed that Jian Qi made him her scapegoat.
After Crocodile heard what Jian Qi said, he laughed, “I did not expect so many third wheels to be in the house.” Jian Qi added before Crocodile could speak.
Was it their fault?
“I’m sorry. We should not have appeared.” Crocodile smiled half-heartedly.
“Alright. Be more alert next time!” Jian Qi responded calmly with a seemingly earnest expression on her face.
‘Young lady, aren’t you too thick-skinned?’ Crocodile’s mouth twitched.
Right then, everyone else had gathered in the room. “Now that everyone is here, let’s talk about the anti-terrorism mission.” Tang Jinyu started speaking.
As he was speaking, he pasted the stack of pictures in his hands onto the white board.
Since everyone had shifted their gaze to the pictures, nobody noticed that Jian Qi had stopped smiling right then.
She looked equally serious as everyone else as she focused her gaze on the pictures pasted on the white board. There was a serious expression on her face, one that everyone else had never seen before.
Eventually, Jian Qi’s gaze landed on the penultimate picture after glancing past each picture as Tang Jinyu pasted them onto the white board.
It was a picture of a young man in his twenties who had blonde hair and blue eyes. With distinctive facial features, the man appeared to be the most handsome person among all of the people in the pictures.
Jian Qi’s eyes became somewhat dimmer.
Just as she had guessed, someone from the internal team was indeed participating in this battle.
‘After all, this happens each time…’
While Jian Qi thought of this, she smiled somewhat sarcastically.
After Tang Jinyu was done pasting the pictures, he turned his head around to look at the audience. Subconsciously, he looked toward Jian Qi who was sitting in the corner.
Meanwhile, Jian Qi made sure she was displaying a neutral facial expression before Tang Jinyu turned around completely.
