While talking and joking, the group of four arrived at a restaurant with many people inside, seemingly very lively.
Adrian sat in a remote corner and ordered some food. After all, they were not here to enjoy but for the Heroes Conference, so no one minded. Moreover, he was here for another reason, which was to investigate the situation.
People from different walks of life mingled in the restaurant, so maybe he could get some information.
“Isn’t the food you ordered a bit too simple? It’s all vegetables. Do you think we’re rabbits?” Dion asked in a huff, and Adrian was speechless.
“Uh, if you’re a rabbit, am I a wolf? You should watch your words around a wolf,” Adrian teased.
Laurie could not help laughing when she heard that, and Dion pouted.
“You, a wolf? You look more like a creep,” Dion said angrily as she petted the cat.
The food was served soon, but Adrian had no intention of eating. Instead, he was listening to the voices from a private room next door.
“I believe all of you have some plans for the Heroes Conference this time.”
“Haha, it’s not bad if we can enter the top ten. We dare not think about the first spot.”
“That’s right. That spot is definitely yours, so it’s good enough for us to get into the top ten and brag about it.”
“Haha, that’s good to hear. Don’t worry, I won’t forget you guys if I win first place. But there are a few powerful opponents that I need your help to hold back a little.”
“Don’t worry about it!”
Adrian frowned slightly when he heard this. It seemed that such a situation could not be avoided no matter where he went. This Heroes Conference seemed quite complicated.
“Hey, why aren’t you eating?” Seeing Adrian spacing out, Dion could not help asking.
Adrian jolted back to his senses and nodded before he started eating.
Very soon, everyone was ready to leave after eating their fill.
When Adrian was about to pay the bill, he was stopped by a few uninvited guests.
”Hey, buddy, can you take care of these three beauties by yourself? Why don’t we help you out?” A person walked up to Jordan, stopped him from paying, and said.
“Oh? How do you plan to help me out?” Adrian was not anxious but asked curiously instead.
The other party smiled and several people appeared behind him, seemingly his followers.
“My name is Marty, and I’ve taken a fancy to the three ladies beside you, so I hope you’ll give them to me.” The young man said with a smile, and Adrian was taken aback by his words.
He inwardly thought that it was indeed a problem to bring beautiful women out for dinner!
“Hey, buddy, to be honest, they’re all my friends. Only the cat belongs to me. If you want to chat them up, I won’t stop you. Just don’t hurt my cat,” Adrian said with a chuckle.
The young man was taken aback and looked at Adrian with ‘appreciation’. Then, he nodded and gave Adrian a check with ten million star dollars written on it.
“Oh? An unexpected windfall? If I bump into such a situation once too many times, will I become the richest man someday?” Adrian mumbled and put it away happily, while the young man walked over to Laurie.
