Xia Xibei was standing outside the entrance of the elementary school when she received a call from Pan Yan.
“Sorry…” Pan Yan sounded frustrated, “I thought they would agree…”
Xia Xibei was not really surprised by this result.
After all, with Bai Meixue around, things wouldn’t work out so easily.
“It’s okay, don’t worry about it. I’m not in a hurry anyway.”
Pan Yan felt even more ashamed.
He had thought that as long as Xia Xibei agreed, he could persuade the company to say yes.
But who would have thought that while Xia Xibei would agree, the company would not say yes?!
Xia Xibei could understand his disappointment, and after a few more words of comfort, she hung up the phone.
She smiled while looking at the school entrance, which wasn’t too far away.
Xia Shahai and Liu Lixin’s twins studied at this school.
Since they had dared to find someone to hurt her, they must be psychologically prepared to handle anything.
Of course, she didn’t intend to risk her own future to make trouble. However, if she didn’t scare them a little bit, how could she be worthy of their intentions?
So, she asked for leave and waited at the entrance for the two children to appear.
The weather has started to get hot by then. Although Xia Xibei was not afraid of the heat or the sun, there was no need to abuse herself.
She found some shade while waiting for the school dismissal.
After a few minutes, she noticed a man waiting under the shade of a tree nearby.
The man was not tall; he was actually shorter than her. He had messy eyebrows, triangular eyes, a bulbous nose, and dark under-eye circles, which made him look a bit perverted.
His clothing was a bit messy, and on such a hot day, he was still wearing an ill-fitting coat. There was also a smell coming from his body, as if he hadn’t taken a shower for several days.
Xia Xibei was not too far away from him, and she couldn’t help covering her nose.
The man stared straight at the school entrance with a strange expression on his face.
Xia Xibei glanced at him subtly, her gaze suddenly stopping at his waist, at which point her expression changed slightly.
At this time, the school door opened, and many students swarmed out.
Some parents stepped forward and picked up their children. Other children lived closer and chose to go home by themselves.
The man’s eyes suddenly lit up at seeing a few children walking over to his side.
With a weird smile on his face, he walked quickly towards those children.
As he walked over, he reached into his coat.
The children were busy playing and joking with each other as they walked, not noticing the man approaching at all.
Xia Xibei’s heart jumped. She didn’t care to find the twins at the moment, quickly following the man instead.
The man’s footsteps were getting faster and faster, the distance between him and the children getting shorter by the second.
The next moment, he pulled his hand out of his coat.
A knife was in his hand!
The knife glinted in the sun. The smile on the corner of the man’s mouth became even more hideous than before.
“Die!” he roared, rushing in front of the children. He waved his hand, the knife making a dazzling arc in the air.
The children finally saw the scene clearly. They were so scared that their minds went blank, unable to move.
Others saw this scene too. They suddenly screamed. “Argh!”
However, they were too far away to catch up to the man.
His smile became even more hideous as his knife was about to fall on a certain child.
The very next moment, however, he felt a heavy blow on his back, as if he had been hit by a boulder. He fell forward, his hands and feet waving uncontrollably.
