“Eh…This isn’t mine,” Ye Wanwan replied with an embarrassed chuckle.
“I’m also joking,” Ji Xiuran calmly said.
Ye Wanwan was still doubtful about Nameless Nie’s words earlier but completely believed it now. After all, even Ji Xiuran said they were matching couples’ rings, so it shouldn’t be wrong.
Ye Wanwan felt her mind swirling. The female ring belonged to her, but the history of the male ring was a mystery. “Xiao Feng, is there another meaning behind these rings?” Ji Xiuran probed.
Ye Wanwan shook her head. “I’m also unsure.”
Ye Wanwan wasn’t on guard against Ji Xiuran at all. There wasn’t a necessity. If Ji Xiuran wanted to harm her, she’d be six feet under already and wouldn’t have survived to this day.
“Xiao Feng, the ring you’re wearing should have some years on it. The workmanship isn’t modern. The other ring has a newer material, so they were probably made in different time periods,” Ji Xiuran said softly.
“Are you saying these rings aren’t couples’ rings?” Ye Wanwan asked inquisitively.
“They are couples’ rings.” Ji Xiuran replied, “It’s just a bit strange that the two rings weren’t made by the same person and perhaps not at the same time. I also don’t understand it. It’s a rare situation.”
Ye Wanwan wanted to sob. She originally thought the truth would be revealed but didn’t expect the mystery to become more enigmatic!
After having dinner with Ji Xiuran, Ye Wanwan returned to the Fearless Alliance. She tossed the matter with the rings to the back of her mind and started scratching and petting Great White and Virus.
She wanted to ask the Headmaster of Scarlet Flames Academy to help her conduct another deep hypnosis session first. Maybe she could recall something then.
The next morning, Ye Wanwan had Big Dipper drive her to Scarlet Flames Academy.
The minute Ye Wanwan stepped into Scarlet Flames Academy’s mission issuance area, her path was blocked by several high-ranking mercenaries.
“Boss, you’re finally back.” One of the S-rank mercenaries said, “Our luck was quite decent and we acquired a total of 50,000 mercenary points…”
Ye Wanwan became spirited instantly.
After verifying the mercenary points, Ye Wanwan called Second Elder without further ado and had him wire some money to her and paid the S-rank mercenaries.
“Should we continue accepting missions, boss?”
The mercenaries looked at the amount in their account with great satisfaction, their smiles turning more eager.
“Haha, boss, you’re seriously rich! We were just planning earlier to kill you if you couldn’t pay up…” a tall and bulky S- rank mercenary said with a foolish smile.
Ye Wanwan:Can’t you be more freaking tactful?
“Nonsense! When did we ever plan to kill the boss? Don’t listen to his nonsense, boss!”
Ye Wanwan nodded with a “Don’t worry, I understand” smile on her face.
“Continue to accept missions,” Ye Wanwan said.
“We were just lucky this time and did the missions quickly. This is a long-term job without any time limit, right, boss?” an S-rank mercenary asked.
“No time limit,” Ye Wanwan answered.
After receiving Ye Wanwan’s promise, the S-rank mercenaries used Ye Wanwan’s name to accept a large number of missions again.
As for Ye Wanwan, she planned to use these 50,000 honor points to ask the headmaster to conduct a second hypnosis session on her. She had to figure out the history of the rings.
