"There are too many people here. Someone's going to recognize me. I'm afraid that everyone in the Black Dragons will know who I am by tomorrow." Zhao Zichen heaved a sigh. "How troublesome."

Chu Xiaoxiao was awake by now and Baldie led her over. She was huffing mad and she raised her hand to hit me. I flinched involuntarily, then controlled it and let her hit me. I was in the wrong and deserved the punishment.
But Chu Xiaoxiao's slap did not land. She sniffed and said, "You saved lives. I won't hit you."
She looked so angry and miserable that my heart ached that I hugged her to me. However, she stomped on my foot. "But you risked your own life, and I'm still angry about that!"
