194 Two Hooligans
A silver-white plane whizzed past in the wide sky, shuttling through the blue sea. It sparkled under the sunlight and was especially dazzling.
Everyone was resting on the way, and Shan Yue and Zhou Xuan did not talk much. A few hours passed from the Federal Center to Las Vegas, and the plane slowly landed on the tarmac.
The Las Vegas delegation had specially sent someone to welcome them at the airport. They had arranged the hotel and itinerary in advance.
Shan Yue first familiarized herself with her residence and the nearby route. She privately asked her partner and learned that there was a casino specially opened for domestic people not far from where she lived.
“Mr. Zhou, isn’t the project negotiation starting tomorrow?” Shan Yue came to Zhou Xuan’s room. “Do you want to play something interesting with me?”
Shan Yue’s lips curled into a faint smile as she raised her eyebrows slightly. “I just found out that the domestic casinos in Las Vegas are not far from us. Since we’re here, aren’t we going to see the reputation of one of the three largest casinos in the world?”
Zhou Xuan had never liked to come into contact with these things, so his answer was very decisive. “I’m not going. If you’re interested, you can play a few rounds yourself. But it’s fine if it’s just a small bet.”
“Alright, thank you for your reminder, Mr. Zhou.” With that, Shan Yue left the hotel. After all, her first goal here was to get money, so no matter what, she would definitely go.
After all, this was her first time in Las Vegas and she was unfamiliar with everything. Shan Yue followed the instructions of the project manager and the navigation in her hand, but she could not find the entrance to the casino.
“Why can’t we find it?” Shan Yue was puzzled. Casinos really didn’t open in obvious places, but she had walked around a few times. Why couldn’t she find any traces of a casino?
When she looked up, she saw two hooligans on a dark path in front of her. It was more likely that such a person knew. They didn’t look like the locals either.
Shan Yue turned around and turned into the path ahead. Even though it was daytime, the buildings on both sides blocked the sun. Coupled with the already gloomy environment, it could not help but send a chill down one’s back.
Shan Yue leaned closer and asked casually, “Do you know where the casinos around here are?”
The two unfamiliar men were attracted by Shan Yue’s words. They looked up and saw a girl in a long dress. “Who are you and what do you want with the casino?”
“You actually speak Mandarin.” The sudden surprise surprised Shan Yue. “I just arrived in Las Vegas recently. A friend introduced me to the casino here, but I haven’t found it for a long time.”
As soon as they heard that she had just arrived, the two hooligans looked at Shan Yue with strange expressions. One of them looked behind Shan Yue. After confirming that there was no one nearby, he slowly moved behind her.
Seeing this, Shan Yue could not help but smile bitterly in her heart. They could have robbed anyone, but they had to rob her. They were really tired of living.
As expected, the hooligan in front of her had already taken out a knife from his shirt pocket. The two of them wanted to attack Shan Yue from the front and back. If it were an ordinary person, the two of them might have had their wish fulfilled. Unfortunately, the two hooligans were really unlucky to have robbed someone they could not provoke.
“Girl, you’re really bold. It’s your first time in Las Vegas and you dare to come to a casino alone.” A hooligan waved the knife in his hand and smiled sinisterly. “Since you’re new here, hand over all your money. We can let you leave this place unscathed.”
“Otherwise, swords don’t have eyes.” The hooligan behind her also threatened. “I advise you to be obedient and not have any crooked thoughts.”
“Hmph, the bold will die from overeating, and the timid will starve to death. I, Shan Yue, gave myself the courage.” A mocking smile appeared on Shan Yue’s lips, making people break out in a cold sweat. “That’s all you have? You didn’t even know where you were when I robbed others. How dare you come out to do this with a small knife.”
