On the side of the road, Lin Tian and Ai Siqi were walking side by side.
Lin Tian looked at the big bag in her hand, turned his head and said to Ai Siqi.
“I didn’t know that you are a rich woman but after seeing buy things like that…”
Since Lin Tian was always next to Ai Siqi, he knew how high the price of the items she bought was. They easily totalled millions of Berries.
Of course, if he had bought things, it would have only cost hundreds of thousands of Berries. As for Ai Siqi, whenever the merchants offered her goods, she always replied, ‘I have money.’
Ai Siqi raised her head and said with a satisfied expression, “Yes, that’s why you have to be my bodyguard. You are very strong.”
Ai Siqi looked at Lin Tian with happiness. Over the years, Lin Tian was the only person who could be considered a true friend to her.
Even though she hadn’t even only known Lin Tian for more than a day, Ai Siqi felt a very comfortable presence from Lin Tian.
“No,” Lin Tian shook his head, in a very firm tone. “I am a Marine soldier, I cannot be your bodyguard.”
“Why not, Marine soldiers are always in danger and they have to work hard, whereas if you are my bodyguard, you can live easily.” Ai Siqi muttered.
Even so, Lin Tian still shook his head. He didn’t care about what Ai Siqi said. Lin Tian was very clear about rejecting it.
While biting her finger, Ai Siqi suddenly said happily, “Besides, you will also get a high salary. I will ask my father to give you 10 million Berries a month, how about that?”
Hearing that huge number made Lin Tian gasp. He then looked at Ai Siqi with an expression of disbelief.
“Ten million for one month … ”
“Yes!” Thinking that Lin Tian would agree, Ai Siqi replied happily.
It’s clear that Ai Siqi’s family is no ordinary family. She could casually offer her bodyguard 10 million Berries a month. That means that he would get 120 million Berries each year.
How much do they actually have? Even Ai Siqi could spend millions of Berries without thinking. He didn’t expect her family to have so much money.
“Forget it, it is indeed a good offer but I still want to become a Marine Soldier.” Said Lin Tian, who still didn’t agree.
A person’s ambition cannot be swayed just by relying on money.
The world is so vast. How could I stop here before seeing the whole thing?
Besides, as long as I have the strength, I don’t need to be afraid of running out of money.
If I wanted, I just had to steal from a Dark Port. It would instantly give me billions of Berries.
“Eh, why?” Ai Siqi hadn’t given up yet. She didn’t accept Lin Tian refusing to be her bodyguard. She tried everything she knew to get Lin Tian to accept her offer.
“Then I’ll double it for you. How about 20 million Berries a month”.
Seeing that Lin Tian still didn’t speak, Ai Siqi continued to increase the number.
“30 million Berries! 40 million Berries! 50 million Berries!”
“Stop it!” Lin Tian told her to stop.
Lin Tian felt that if he didn’t ask Ai Siqi to stop, he might not be able to endure.
Fifty million Berries a month, that means 600 million Berries a year and to get it, he just needed to constantly be beside this rich little woman.
Even on the Grand Line, very few pirates have a bounty of more than 600 million Berries and now I only need a year to get it.
“I rejected your offer because I can’t stay here. I have my own dreams.”
“Oh, I see.”
Hearing Lin Tian’s answer, who seemed to be honest, Ai Siqi could only accept the situation. He couldn’t possibly agree to her offer.
The two of them were silent and walked slowly.
In the end, Lin Tian tried to speak to break the silence.
“By the way, your family should have bodyguards guarding you so how did you get caught by the pirates?”
Ai Siqi was in a wealthy family. They’d certainly have strong bodyguards and those pirates were very weak.
“Hehe…” Ai Siqi chuckled shyly. “Actually, I was getting really bored being at home all the time. I didn’t have any friends to play with, so I ran away. “
Only then did Lin Tian understand why Ai Siqi was caught by those weak pirates. It turned out that this stupid rich woman had run away from home in secret.
“You must have spent a lot of money at the time which then drew these pirates interest to you.” Lin Tian tried to guess.
If the pirates didn’t know about Ai Siqi’s family, who had a lot of wealth, how could they possibly want to kidnap her?
However, Ai Siqi shook her head and said, “No, while I was running away I met a famous doctor named Dr Wu.”
“He said he was used to working with World Nobles so I listened to him and bought the recipe he was offering for 10 million Berries.”
Lin Tian interrupted and said, “But, I didn’t expect him to manage to trick you. In fact, he was a pirate who caught you and he was also the one who threatened me. “
“Hey!” Ai Siqi looked surprised, “How did you know?”
“You said it before!”
“Huh? What did I say?” Ai Siqi asked himself.
Lin Tian nodded. When Ai Siqi left Rich’s hands, she spoke to herself and said that this doctor had tricked her.
“I don’t remember…” Ai Siqi tried to remember it for a long time, but she never thought she would say something like that.
Regarding Ai Siqi’s rough nerves, Lin Tian smiled bitterly and shook his head, not knowing what to say.
“Forget it. I don’t want to think about it either.” Ai Siqi waved her hand and said sadly.
Then, Ai Siqi continued her story.
“That time, while I was walking around Korod City, I got lost and I didn’t know where to go so I ended up in …”
“Stop, wait a minute!” Lin Tian suddenly heard something that shocked him and quickly stopped Ai Siqi from speaking.
Lin Tian looked at Ai Siqi with an astonished look, “What did you just say! You are lost here!? Didn’t you say before that you know this place very well?”
Lin Tian shouted. He couldn’t believe that he had been tricked by Ai Siqi anymore.
‘I should have realized it a long time ago! So that was the reason Ai Siqi was so attracted to these items after she entered Korod City. If Ai Siqi had known this place, she wouldn’t have been so excited.’
“Shit, I got caught!”
Ai Siqi just realized that she just said something she shouldn’t have said. Then she lowered her head with a worried expression because she was afraid to look at Lin Tian.
Lin tian noticed that the people around were watching the two of them. Lin Tian became embarrassed and lowered his head and then he scratched his head while apologizing to the people who saw him.
“Forgive us, ladies and gentlemen, for disturbing your night.”
Lin Tian quickly turned around and grabbed Ai Siqi, who wanted to take the opportunity to slip away. “Where do think you’re going?”
Feeling her collar being grabbed by someone, Ai Siqi’s face immediately shrunk.
“Lin Tian, why did you grab me?”
Ai Siqi looked at Lin Tian reluctantly.
“You have to explain.” Lin Tian said with a smile.
But that smile was terrifying to Ai Siqi.
‘I should have run away from him earlier but now I’ve been caught instead and it’s all over.’
When Ai Siqi was about to speak, she was interrupted by Lin Tian’s low voice. “If you want to explain let’s change locations. You have to explain it to me!”
Lin Tian didn’t want to deal with his problem with Ai Siqi in front of so many people.
After finishing talking, Lin Tian took Ai Siqi and walked to a small, quiet street.
Even though Ai Siqi didn’t want to go with Lin Tian, she could only follow Lin Tian’s instructions.
Lin Tian grabbed Ai Siqi’s right shoulder with his right hand and the two walked side by side. Ai Siqi knew that she had done something wrong, so she didn’t dare to look at Lin Tian and lowered her head all the way.
But when viewed from a distance, the two of them looked like a couple hugging.
The other people on the street shook their heads when they saw this scene.
“Today’s young people are very mature!”
“Making use of their youth by making out on the street, that’s really nice.”
Because these people didn’t whisper, both Lin Tian and Ai Siqi could hear them.
Hearing what these people say, Ai Siqi’s face turned red, her head lowered her head, and she couldn’t even look at him. She relied on Lin Tian, who was holding herself to keep going.
Every time Lin Tian heard a sentence, he felt a black line on his head.
Lin Tian wanted to turn around and kick these people in the face to make them realize what was going on.
How do we look like a couple, we are a victim and a perpetrator.
And I am the victim!
