I arrived at the market and began to look for Jia. Even though it was after ten, there were still a lot of people in the mart. Unfortunately, I didn’t see Jia among them.
With inhumane speed, I walked through the entire market to look for Jia, but I still didn’t see a glimpse of her.
What am I going to do now? The fact that I couldn’t do anything at the moment was making me frustrated. But just then, I received a text. It was from Heejin.
[Hi, honey. Did you find Jia?]
As soon as I saw the message, I called Heejin. Unsurprisingly, she didn’t pick up. So in response, I sent her a text.
[But you’ll just curse at me again.]
And how did she know that?
[I couldn’t find her. Do you have her?]
“Fuck,” I snapped. Only out loud. I was afraid of what would happen if I sent it through text.
[Don’t touch her.]
[And if I do?]
“Shit,” I snapped.
[Hehe. Okay, okay. We’ll keep Jia and Jinwoo safe so come to our building at midnight tomorrow. Oh, I’d also check on Nayoung if I were you.]
I immediately sped over to Saman Group. I called Nayoung, but of course, she didn’t pick up.
Heejin sent another text, but I ignored it.
[I wouldn’t ignore my texts if I were you.]
I still didn’t reply. I’m busy right now.
[Sweetheart, we already kidnapped Nayoung.]
That got me to respond. I froze mid-step. I called Heejin, but again, she didn’t pick up. She truly is a piece of shit.
[You kidnapped her just now?]
But no response.
[Is she safe?!]
Still, no answer.
[Hey, Heejin! Check your texts!]
But still no response. Tit for tat, I guess. Anyways, I couldn’t get in touch with Heejin after that, so I made my way over to Han Entertainment. The company with all the other superhumans. I’m not going to ask them for help. I’m just going to learn more about these goblins.
I soon arrived at the building. There were two security guards, but unfortunately, they wouldn’t let me in.
“Why not?” I asked, a confused look on my face.
“You’re on the blacklist here. We can’t let you in.”
“If you want manners, look somewhere else.”
I almost beat him up for that, but I let it go. Why? There are cameras everywhere. Couldn’t I just break them? No. Look at all these people standing around me with their phones out. They didn’t look like Han Entertainment employees. Probably just part-timers paid to take pictures of me. How can I make use of these people? I held my temper in just a little longer.
“I just have to meet the CEO.”
“Jesus, are you deaf?”
And soon, one of them pushed me. I shifted my body to make it look like he just touched my chest. Then, I immediately sent a Brazilian kick to his face.
That was one guard down. I shrugged. It was purely self-defense so no one would be able to say anything. I then turned to look at the other guard. He seemed shocked and all of a sudden, he was unable to look at me in the eyes.
With that, he stepped aside. I stuck my head up and chest out as I walked into the building.
As soon as I was inside, the other superhumans were in front of me. There were ten of them, but I didn’t know them. A skinny guy who looked to be in his early 20s stepped forward. His eyes turned blue as he gave me a once-over.
“Hey, Sian. I’ve always wanted to meet you.”
“Then, you should’ve come found me.”
At least then I would’ve gotten the chance to beat him up.
“I was busy.”
“Busy, huh? Yeah, right.” I snorted. He didn’t like that. He probably thought I was looking down on him. Not that I wasn’t though.
“I knew you were rude, but I didn’t expect you to be this much of a bitch,” he said, loosening up his hands. He continued rambling.
“I’m Wan-yong. Wan-yong Yi. You’d do good to remember that.”
Wan-yong Yi. Wasn’t that the name of the Japanese prime minister during the Japanese Occupation period? Granted, he’s not that Wan-yong Yi, but there was no doubting the hatred I felt for this man.
“What did you call me? You bitch!”
He then threw an angry punch at my head, but I easily dodged it. That surprised him and he froze. What the hell?
“What?” I asked.
“How could you dodge my fist like that…?”
Wan-yong’s eyes widened in confusion. If anyone should be confused, it’s me. How could he think that he could beat me like that? I should just pull his tongue out.
“What about your fist?”
“You saw it?!”
“Of course I saw it. How could I not?”
With that, I sent a jab towards his stomach.
Wan-yong was out. If he wants his fist to be invisible, he should at least be that fast. Anyways, the other superhumans seemed to be shocked by that. I guess they thought Wan-yong had an obvious win. Not only that, but they were also probably surprised by my quick jab. They wouldn’t have been able to see it. Just then, a pretty-looking boy spoke up.
“What are you stuttering about?”
With a smirk, I ran forward and appeared behind the superhumans. They couldn’t see him and began to look this way and that way.
At that, they all went rigid and spun around. The sight of me caused another wave of gasps. This was getting old. Anyways, that final display of my powers certainly persuaded them not to attack me.
“Where’s your CEO?”
“The 18th floor.”
Well, that was easy. I soon made my way up to the 18th floor, and not one of them came after me.
I was now in front of the CEO’s office on the 18th floor. I then knocked.
I opened the door and walked in. Was that Hansoo Kim, the CEO? It felt a little weird. Anyways, I walked in. I saw two men sitting across from each other. On the right was a familiar face – Gap-chan Lee. That meant that the one on the left was Mr. Kim. He’s the one who spoke to me.
“Nice to meet you, Sian, darling.”
Well, he looked happy. But darling? That pissed me off.
“Hello, Mr. Kim. It’s nice to meet you.”
“You’re more polite than I thought you’d be,” Mr. Kim said with a bright smile.
“I usually am,” I answered. Really. I’m not rude all the time.
“I see. I guess that was my mistake. I heard you were nothing but a rude, uncivilized bitch.”
“Well, you heard wrong then.”
“Oh, really?” Mr. Kim chuckled. Unlike his deep voice, his face was rather angular and sharp. It didn’t fit, to be honest.
“But she is,” Gap-chan suddenly interjected. He was just as ratty as ever. Now that I think about it, the two looked rather similar. I wondered if they were related.
“Yes, I know. I believe you. Would I believe an uncivilized brat like her? Hahaha!” Mr. Kim guffawed soon after. Should I just pummel him as well?
“Anyways, what are you doing here?” Gap-chan asked me. Just then, his face turned dark. Until a few seconds ago, he looked gleeful, and right now, he was mad. Why was that? All of a sudden, the man took a gun out of his pocket and pointed it at me.
“Mr. Kim! She’s here to beat you up!”
As soon as he shouted that, Mr. Kim also took a gun out of his pocket. Really? What’s with the guns?
“Is that true?” Mr. Kim asked Gap-chan. His voice was really getting on my nerves.
“Positive!” Gap-chan shouted, still pointing at the gun. Idiot. And so, I spoke up.
I’m not here to beat Mr. Kim up. What the hell? But just then, Gap-chan spoke up.
“I saw it! I saw the future! I saw you slap Mr. Kim in the face! And not just that! You kept beating him up!”
Oh, yeah. He can see the future. I immediately thought back to when I was filming 24-hour Jungle. Hye-jeong told me that Gap-chan told her that I would get bitten by an alligator. I mean, I did, but the alligator also lost its teeth.
“I hate to break it to you, but that’s not why I’m here,” I said sincerely…but to no avail.
“Don’t lie, you bitch!”
With that, he held up the gun closer. And just then, it occurred to me that I may have to knock him out. Then, I thought that maybe I should beat up Mr. Kim as well. Just then, Mr. Kim began to shout.
“Aha! It’s true! She’s thinking about beating me up! You little brat!”
Oh, so this man could read minds. Well, that made things more difficult. Anyways, the two approached me with their guns. I moved quickly.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
And soon, I had both guns in my hands.
“They’re mine now~”
I stuck my tongue out at them.
“We have more,” Gap-chan said, taking another gun out of his other pocket. As did Mr. Kim. Well, they certainly came prepared. Anyways, they pulled their guns out and without a moment’s hesitation, they both pulled the trigger.
Instead of bullets, it was needles. And so, after dodging all their shots, I took the first guns I had taken from them and returned the shots.
Well, if that’s what really happened, they would’ve been dead. But luckily, it was the same ‘Pew! Pew!’ and needles came out. It stuck to their skins. It looked rather painful actually.
“Eurgh! Aargh! How could this be!”
“Aaah! Shit! Aaah!”
They continued to shout in horror until finally, both of them passed out.
“What is it?”
I looked over them. Judging by how their hearts were still beating, it wasn’t poison on the needles. There was no irritation on their skin, either. Was it anesthesia? That would explain why they passed out. Anyways, I didn’t do anything to them. I simply positioned them with their backs against each other and began tying them up with rope. Oh, where did I get the rope? They already had it. Maybe they planned to hold me captive. Idiots.
