Subconsciously, she knew that she could never let Mu Li find out that she was the girl Qi Yanxi liked.
She couldn’t explain it, but somehow, she didn’t think Mu Li was as harmless as she appeared to be.
Mu Li began to chuckle. Light flickered in her eyes and the look on her face was indecipherable.
“The one he likes is the happiest person in this world. He’s a little childish, but he’ll stick up for his loved one unconditionally. He follows his heart instead of reason and he’ll cover for the person he likes no matter what. Back when he liked Li Fanxing, he didn’t care if she trampled on his dignity. He either likes no one, or gives his all when he falls for someone,” Mu Li said in an impassive tone, which made An Xiaxia a little sad.
“Mu Li, I think rather than liking him without telling him, maybe you should try courting him. It may turn out differently,” An Xiaxia said sincerely.
She thought that since Qi Yanxi and Mu Li shared a past, if Mu Li was brave enough to tell him about her feelings, maybe Qi Yanxi would grow to like her.
It might have been an illusion, but she thought she saw a sardonic look in Mu Li’s eyes. Mu Li grinned. “Xiaxia… do you know what you’re saying?”
“Huh?” An Xiaxia was baffled. She had only made that suggestion as a friend.
Mu Li smiled brightly. The next second, she raised her gun and pointed it at An Xiaxia.
Frightened, An Xiaxia’s pupils contracted and she stared at Mu Li in bewilderment.
They stared at each other for a moment, then Mu Li smiled. “I was just kidding. Don’t look so scared.”
She put down the gun and rose to her feet. “Let’s go play, or it’ll be such a waste of time.”
“Heh…” An Xiaxia chuckled and followed her. Her palms were covered in sweat.
Just then… Mu Li looked as if she genuinely wanted to kill her.
She must have imagined it, right? She had always thought of Mu Li as a friend. Mu Li was such a delicate and kind girl, how could she possibly think of killing her…
Moreover, this was just a game. She would get a white dot at most if hit by a bullet. Nothing was going to happen.
While comforting herself in this way in her head, An Xiaxia actively joined the game. Together with Mu Li, they managed to take out a guy without bringing much danger to themselves!
Quick footsteps came from a distance. An Xiaxia gestured at Mu Li and they went to hide behind the remains of a wall.
The most amazing scene followed. A strong and vigorous figure jumped onto a wall with rakish movements. He casually jumped off, then loaded his gun, raised it, and shot at someone behind him.
It hit the opponent right in the heart.
An Xiaxia was infatuated. The person then turned to look at her.
“Dummy… why did you come out?” The lazy voice belonged to Sheng Yize.
An Xiaxia was going to greet him when the person that was supposed to be “dead” rushed toward them, yelling, “Sheng Yize, I’ll kill you! Aaah!”
“Hey… Qi Yanxi, you’re dead. You shouldn’t be running around.” An Xiaxia was confused.
Sheng Yize snickered. “Don’t mind him. Something must have gotten into his head. He’s been running after me across half the base like a rabid dog.”
“Arf! Arf! Arf!” Instead of being irritated at being called a dog, Qi Yanxi actually began to bark!
“Qi Yanxi…” Mu Li cried out in surprise and tried to stop him. However, Qi Yanxi gruffly pushed her aside. “Out of my way!”
A painful look flashed across Mu Li’s face and she bit down on her lip.
All the warmth in her eyes disappeared as she glared at An Xiaxia on the other side, the look on her face ghastly.
