Silver Wolf Gang's reputation stank; they used all sorts of vile means to collect debts, as well as to manage the Gu family's biggest underground casino, and were very rampant.
"Director Yun, why did you get me to investigate that gang?"
"I understood one thing yesterday," the boy suddenly said.
His agent was baffled.
He calmly continued. "This world is much crueler than I thought; the weak get eaten by the strong, and the weak won't ever get to make the rules, so I must become stronger!"
"Then, your point is…"
"Hurricane Group once invited me in; I'll decide on this matter as soon as possible!"
Having said that, he ended the call.
He threw the phone to the sofa and walked up to the window, silently looking out with deep understanding…
Early in the morning of the next day, Yun Shishi was about to visit the supermarket to get some sanitary supplies when she received a call from Xiao Xue.
They had not been in touch for so long. Ever since her friend returned to the country, she had only contacted her a few times to ask about her health.
After her return to the country, she seemed to have joined an external company under her family's arrangements. She was a newbie at her workplace and definitely needed time to acclimatize to her environment, so she had lost contact with her at some point.
Upon picking up the call, her friend wailed, "Shishi, my leave has finally been approved! I'm on leave starting today; let's hang out and have coffee!"
"I haven't heard from you for so long; I thought that you've already disappeared from the face of the earth," she joked.
"You should know this; when one is a newbie at a company, there's bound to be a handover of tasks. Sigh … I was almost tormented to death. Ah, I was so hard-pressed! If I didn't get a leave, I'd probably die from exhaustion!" Her friend complained wryly while cursing her superior.
"I can't believe you can actually rein in your temper!" she exclaimed. "If you were your old self, you'd long quit your job."
"Well, I wasn't sensible in the past! Now, being an adult for so long, I should be more sensible, right?" Xiao Xue laughed and then made an appointment with her. "Two o'clock in the afternoon at the Peninsula Café; I'll wait for you!"
Her appointment was fixed just like that.
In the afternoon, Yun Shishi wore a simple attire and left home at once.
On her way to the meeting place, she made a trip to a dessert shop to buy her friend's favorite vanilla crepe before she hurried to the rendezvous point.
She reached the café early and sat at the reserved table. Ordering a cup of Mocha Frappuccino, she leaned comfortably against the sofa and looked at the streets through the window as she waited for her friend to arrive.
Basking in the warm afternoon sun, she squinted her eyes. The weather was perfect today; it was neither too sunny nor too cold. She even felt a little drowsy, so she simply nestled to herself with eyes closed.
When her best friend arrived, she saw a picture of beauty; nestled in a corner of the sofa, the warm sunlight from the window shone on Yun Shishi's face and made it seem as fair, and clear, as jade.
Drunk on a sleeping beauty…
Somehow, the phrase popped into her mind.
In the time that they did not meet, her dear friend had become more charming.
Probably due to her busy job before, she had neglected her dressing style.
Now, being an actress, she naturally paid attention to her outer appearance; Qin Zhou had even sent someone to do her wardrobe for her.
