“Bang —”

Somehow, with her poor shooting skills, An Xiaxia hit her target first. Li Fanxing gritted her teeth in exasperation and threw her gun on the ground.

“Bitch! An Xiaxia, you bitch!” Li Fanxing abandoned her image and lashed out at An Xiaxia. However, gunshots were then fired from behind her and the paintballs hit her with a series of thumping sounds.

Li Fanxing fled in a panic while screaming.

The paintball bullets wouldn’t injure her in any way, but they still hurt when they hit her!

A short distance away, Qi Yanxi rubbed his nose and said scornfully, “Tsk, tsk, Li Fanxing, watch your mouth! What sort of language was that? I’ll teach you a lesson on behalf of your dad!”

He went up to them and dragged Li Fanxing away. Before he left, he instructed An Xiaxia, “Hide well. I won’t always rescue you in time.”

That made strike two. An Xiaxia crouched down in her corner again, drawing circles on the ground.

She paused when she recalled Li Fanxing’s threat.

Would Li Fanxing really… drop the case?

If the case really went to court, would her brother be capable enough to win the case?

She had no idea.

Something rustled nearby and An Xiaxia almost felt like crying.

She had really thought her hiding place was well-concealed; why had she been discovered again?!

“Xiaxia, it’s me.” An Xiaxia put down her gun at that clear and melodious voice.

It was Mu Li.

She was so much more beautiful than before that even the camouflage uniform couldn’t conceal her exquisite face and graceful movements. She now reminded one of an orchid blooming in a remote valley, and when she smiled, she had a charm no one could resist.

“Why are you here?”

“Qi Yanxi told me where you were.” Mu Li sat down next to her. “You don’t look so well.”

“Hm… I caught a cold.”

“Have you taken any medicine? I can take you to the rest area.” Mu Li was concerned.

An Xiaxia shook her head. “It’s ok. I still want to play.”

It was the first time she had ever played this game.

Mu Li chuckled. “I’ve never played before either… But I don’t think there’s anything I can do apart from hide…”

An Xiaxia looked at her. “Me too.”

” Sigh .” The two of them heaved a sigh in unison. When An Xiaxia looked at Mu Li again, she realized that the latter was blushing. It wasn’t from heat, but the kind when a teenage girl had a crush on someone.

She gave Mu Li a wicked grin. “Why, that look on your face! You’re in love, aren’t you?”

Mu Li squirmed bashfully, then replied, “Yes…”

“He must be the luckiest man in the world!” An Xiaxia admired that guy’s fortune. Mu Li was pretty, gentle, and caring. She would have liked her if she was a man!

Mu Li smiled bashfully, then nudged An Xiaxia. “Xiaxia, I want to tell you a secret.”

“Huh? Sure!”

It was a bright, sunny day and white clouds floated in the sky in large masses. Apart from sporadic gunshots, everything was as perfect as a dream.

Mu Li blushed prettily. As if she had summoned every last bit of courage in her life, she enunciated each word, “The person I like is Qi Yanxi!”

An Xiaxia was dazed.

What? Mu Li liked Qi Yanxi?

However, she soon calmed down. Come to think of if, Mu Li and Qi Yanxi had grown up together. It was only natural that their friendship should grow into something more.

“But I know that he likes someone else.” Mu Li waved her hand casually. “That’s ok. I’m content to just look at him like this. Right, Xiaxia?”

She liked him and that was her own business.

“By the way, do you know who the girl he likes is?” Mu Li blinked, then stared at An Xiaxia with her innocent big eyes.

An Xiaxia forced a smile. “I – I have no idea…”
