Chapter 49: Loyal (2)

Xu Lingyun also didn’t want to take advantage of his friend, so he couldn’t speak confidently like Zhang Xiao. He just watched the two of them discuss silently, but he didn’t expect Li Xiaoyin to suddenly want to throw this spot at him.

What the hell? She’s just asking me without even thinking about it first.

This style of doing things was very in line with Li Xiaoyin’s personality…

But don’t you care what Zhang Xiao thinks? He was the one who suggested it first!

After some deliberation, Xu Lingyun sighed.

“Sister Yin, I don’t want to lie either. Who doesn’t want this spot? But this spot is too precious. I can’t afford it at all, and I don’t want to take advantage of you. Moreover, Zhang Xiao was the one who said this first. If not for him, I wouldn’t have known about this. How could I snatch his opportunity…”

Hearing this, Zhang Xiao’s expression turned complicated.

He wanted to buy the assistant spot from Li Xiaoyin, but in the end, it still depended on whether Li Xiaoyin was willing to sell it to him or not. How she handled it was her business, and if she didn’t want to sell the spot to him, it was fine.

He did not think that the benefits would fall on him just because they were friends.

However, Li Xiaoyin did not want money and generously gave the spot to another childhood friend who needed help more. This action and reason made him not know what to say.

To be honest, he felt a little uncomfortable and could not help but feel that he had been treated differently. However, when he thought of Li Xiaoyin’s usual personality, he knew that she did not mean that. She was just slow when it came to interpersonal relationships and was never the kind of person who was smooth-talking.

Seeing Xu Lingyun’s terrified expression, Zhang Xiao felt even more complicated. He naturally had a good relationship with Xu Lingyun.

He was conflicted. On the one hand, he was unwilling to give up this opportunity, but on the other hand, he was conflicted about the current situation.

After a while, Zhang Xiao gritted his teeth as if he had made up his mind.

“Xiaoyin is right. You need this spot more than I do. To put it bluntly, without this spot, I would still be a rich kid, but you… Sigh. Although I was the one who suggested this, the spot still belongs to Xiaoyin. I only reminded her, but it doesn’t mean that this is my chance. She has the right to do anything to the assistant spot. You don’t have to mind me.”

Zhang Xiao was conflicted. He wanted to be an assistant and become a Super to make a career, but compared to Xu Lingyun’s dire situation, he felt that there was no need to insist on fighting for it.

His own troubles could not reach the level of threatening his survival, and he still had a lot of choices. It was not like this was the only way. He felt that there was no need to snatch the opportunity for his best friend to change his fate… Besides, Li Xiaoyin was the one who would make the decision.

With Li Xiaoyin’s personality, even if he had suggested this in private, she would most likely not sell it to him unless she saw that his situation was really necessary.

Although he was reluctant, Zhang Xiao still decided that as long as Xu Lingyun needed it, he would not fight for it and not make things difficult for his friend.

“How loyal!” Li Xiaoyin patted Zhang Xiao’s shoulder.

“You’re so offensive. If it wasn’t me sitting here, anyone else would hate you.” Zhang Xiao’s tone was helpless.

“Ah, is that so? Then I’m sorry, I’m sorry. You know I don’t know much about these things… I just feel that we brothers can say anything openly.” Li Xiaoyin was a little surprised, then scratched her head in embarrassment.

“You don’t have to apologize. I’m not so ignorant as to feel that someone has let me down just because I can’t get something. Besides, you’re not wrong. Lingyun indeed needs it more than me.” Zhang Xiao shook his head and sighed. “Honestly speaking, you’re much more righteous and loyal than me.”

She did not even want the chance to sell such a precious slot. Instead, she gave it away for free to help her brother in need… He felt that this was what true loyalty was.

Li Xiaoyin did not hesitate. She turned to look at Xu Lingyun and said straightforwardly, “You know me. I don’t like to be polite. Anyway, this is the situation. I’m just asking if you want it.”

“Sister Yin…”

Xu Lingyun wanted to say something but hesitated. In the end, he mustered up his courage and said, “Don’t tell me you like me? Let me make it clear in advance. Although we’re familiar with each other, I only treat you as a brother and have no earthly interest in you. I still prefer someone gentler…”

“Get lost! I’m not interested in a boy toy like you!”

Li Xiaoyin cursed.

Xu Lingyun scratched his head and put away his joking expression. He looked at the three of them and hesitated for a while before taking a deep breath and saying in a rare serious tone.

“Sister Yin, since we’ve already reached this point, I want this spot and am willing to be your assistant.”

“That’s more like it. If you want it, just say it. Why are you so shy? I hate peoples who always pretend to be polite.” Li Xiaoyin laughed and teased, “But as my assistant, you have to at least shave your stubble clean. I don’t want to bring such a sloppy assistant around.”

“No problem!” Xu Lingyun slapped his thigh and immediately said, “Not to mention stubble, even if you want me to shave all the hair on my body, it won’t be a problem!”

“That’s not necessary…”

Li Xiaoyin’s mouth twitched in slight disgust.

Zhou Jing had been watching silently. Seeing that they had finished chatting, he smiled and said, “Congratulations.”

The three of them turned to look at Zhou Jing. Only then did they realize that Zhou Jing had not spoken at all.

“Why didn’t you say anything just now?” Li Xiaoyin poked Zhou Jing’s arm.

Zhou Jing smiled. “I don’t need this spot. It’s not convenient for me to interrupt.”

This assistant slot was indeed a way to become a Super. It could directly exempt him from immigration, which was also useful to him.

However, he already had the Astral Travel Interface, so he only needed to carry out his plan to become a Super. Therefore, Zhou Jing did not have any thoughts about it. Moreover, he did not intend to fight for the opportunity to change his friend’s fate.

Everyone had their own interests at heart, but if one only placed benefits in their eyes and kept thinking that all the good things should belong to them, they would easily lose their friends.

Hence, Zhou Jing decided not to speak and just remain quiet.

But then again, these three best friends were really kind. Even if he wasn’t the one who benefited this time, he still felt gratified.

Hearing this, Zhang Xiao gave him a thumbs up.

Xu Lingyun also bowed to Zhou Jing with gratitude in his eyes.

Anyone would want to be a Super, but Zhou Jing said that he didn’t want it. Was that possible?

It had to be an act.

The two of them felt that Zhou Jing definitely wanted it in his heart, but for the sake of their friend, they could only hold back their desire and not speak.

In their eyes, he was just as loyal.

“As expected of Jingjing!” Li Xiaoyin chuckled.

They had been best friends for many years, and their relationship was the same. Zhang Xiao was quite rich, and in her opinion, there was no need to help him. Although Zhou Jing was not that rich, at least he had a family, and his life was stable. She felt that there was no need to help him much. In the end, she still felt that Xu Lingyun needed help the most.

Her thoughts were simple. There was only one spot, so she had to give it to the friend who needed it the most.

As for the fact that this assistant slot was very valuable… that was not a problem. Even if her life was financially tight, she still felt that money could be earned at any time.

Seeing that the three of them had misunderstood, Zhou Jing shook his head and did not explain.

He did not intend to talk about his current situation. It would be useless if he did. Besides, it was not appropriate to talk about it in this situation.

Only his immediate family had the right to waive the forced immigration. Even if Li Xiaoyin became a Super, she would not be able to directly help him in his current situation.

He still had to use his own plan to resolve his situation and tell his friends in the future. Otherwise, he would have to spend a lot of effort explaining.

At this moment, Li Xiaoyin put away her Superhuman ID and said generously,

“Today, I specially brought everyone here to celebrate. Everyone knows that I’ve become a Super. If you have any problems in the future, just look for me! Don’t stand on ceremony with me!”

“Definitely, definitely.” Zhou Jing nodded.

Li Xiaoyin changed the topic. “It’s just me. How have you been recently? Jingjing, how are you?”

“I’ve been doing well recently.”

Zhou Jing shook his head and smiled without saying anything.

He turned to look at Zhang Xiao. Seeing that Zhang Xiao still looked a little dispirited, he thought for a moment and patted his arm.

“Don’t think too much about it. This isn’t the first time we know Xiaoyin. She’s a little stupid, but she doesn’t mean anything else.”

“… Don’t worry, you don’t have to comfort me. This isn’t the first day you’ve known me either.”

Zhang Xiao composed himself and let go of the grudge in his heart. He also gave a genuine smile.

If he only cared about benefits, with his family background, he would not have played with the three of them since they were kids.
