Chapter 324 - Cool Girl
“There won’t be. Here, write my phone number down- give me a call if anyone messes with you…” York paused and took his hat off for Lin Yi. “Here, take my cap- the cops in this city won’t mess with us Bluewater.”
“Oh, thanks!” Lin Yi put the cap on. “Is it fine if I say I’m Boss York’s lackey if any one causes me trouble?”
“Of course, of course!” York was delighted at that ‘boss’ title Lin Yi was referring him to with. “Use that name as much as you want- I have my connections here in Bluetown.”
Lin Yi nodded and handed four hundred euros to York- he only had a couple thousand with him, and York wasn’t too interested. He led Lin Yi to the car right after that.
The keys were in the cars, since they weren’t afraid of anyone stealing from Bluewater property.
Lin Yi drove the car out of the factory- things were easier now that he had this cap.
He hadn’t driven far when he spotted a pretty girl hitchhiking at the roadside- she waved to Lin Yi when he neared.
Naturally, Lin Yi had no interest in hooking up- there’d been plenty of girls trying to hit on him in this northern district…
He’d only paid attention to this particular girl because she was an Asian- it gave him a sense of familiarity, seeing someone from his race in this foreign land.
The cool girl had a pair of huge sunglasses on, dressed in hot black. She stood out, and Lin Yi felt that he’d seen her before, though the sunglasses did obstruct a big part of her face.
He wouldn’t have stopped the car for just the Asian face- he’d stopped because the face seemed familiar.
“What’s up?” Lin Yi’s baseball cap and black sunglasses didn’t make his face any more visible than the girl’s.
“Can I get a quick hitchhike, handsome?” The cool girl squeezed out a smile.
“Hitchhike? I don’t even know where I’m going, how am I supposed to give you a hitchhike?” Lin Yi was sizing the girl up as he spoke- he felt like he’d seen her before.
He must've met too many people these couple years- it was normal for him to find a face familiar every now and then.
“That’s perfect then, if you don’t- drive me to Kanha Hotel please.” The cool girl said as she got on the co-driver seat.
“Ah……” Lin Yi smiled. “I don’t know where that is either.”
“Hm?” The girl paused. “Aren’t you a Bluewater? How come you don’t know where Kanha is?”
“I just joined, is that a problem?” Lin Yi shrugged.
“Oh… Not at all. I’ll point you the way.” The girl sounded slightly disappointed, but her voice remained cold.
Lin Yi started the car and drove on, the corner of his eye still glancing at the cool girl. “You a tourist?”
Lin Yi felt that that wasn’t possible right after he asked the question- would a tourist be brave enough to stop a stranger’s car for a hitchhike, especially when she knew what the Waterblue was? Did she have a deathwish?
He started getting interested in who this cool girl was. Had he met her before? He might be able to recall if she took her sunglasses off.
“Self sponsored tourist.” Lin Yi wasn’t expecting than answer.
“A self sponsored tourist who knows about the Bluewater mafia?” Lin Yi asked. The girl was clearly lying.
“Because I’m interested in that kinda thing, okay- I look up to the strong.” The cool girl was trying to make her smile more flirty, but it looked more like a cold smile on that face of hers.
“......” Lin Yi was speechless- what sort of lying was this? “Look up to the strong, huh? So you’re saying you’ve been waiting for a Bluewater member’s car to hitchhike in their territory?”
“Yeah, see how that worked out?” The cool girl smiled. “Come on, tell me about your Bluewater!”
“Sorry, I told you I just joined- wrong guy to ask.” Lin Yi was getting more and more curious- what was this girl here to do? She couldn’t even lie properly.
“Then you should know who the Bluewater boss is, right? Is it Charlandon? I’ve heard that it’s him!” The girl asked.
“I guess.” Lin Yi had looked up the Bluewater mafia online before- that seemed to be the right name.
“Then do you know who he is?” The girl continued her questioning. “Is he in that car repair factory? Or in the blue castle?”
“In the factory, I guess…” Lin Yi answered casually- it was something he’d heard from the taxi driver.
“I see. Then do you guys get to meet him, usually? Does he work inside an office?” The cool girl continued.
“That, I don’t know.” Lin Yi wasn’t really a Bluewater member- how was he supposed to know so much?
“How come you don’t know anything!” The cool girl was a bit pissed. “Then can you bring me to meet him?”
“What do you wanna meet him for?” Lin Yi didn’t know what this girl’s deal was, but he frowned after finishing that question, spotting a black SUV tailing him from afar.
He was busy talking with this girl, and didn’t even know where the hotel was supposed to be, and yet… the SUV had been tailing him the whole time. It was an impossible coincidence.
Was it the Bluewater mafia? Lin Yi frowned as he recalled his actions- he hadn’t done anything suspicious, and hadn’t told anyone about his purpose here… He didn’t even have that much cash on him, so why were the Bluewater following him?
What made it odder was the fact that the SUV had started tailing him after he’d exited the factory, since he’d make sure to check for any tailers after leaving…
So they were following this girl? Lin Yi found that possibility to be the most feasible one. They must’ve started tailing him after the girl got in his car.
Just who was this girl??
