Unfortunately, a place like the Independent State wasn't suitable for everyone or else it would've been nice for her to move the Age of Immortals to the Independent State.
When Ye Wanwan passed by a remote spot, a slim man popped out from somewhere and stopped her.
Her location wasn't far from the Age of Immortals, and the skies were gloomy but it wasn't raining, so Ye Wanwan had decided to walk.
Ye Wanwan frowned as she observed the thin man blocking her. She didn't know this man nor had she ever seen him before.
"What is it?" Ye Wanwan probed furtively.
"No need to panic; I don't have any ill intentions," the man quietly answered. "I stopped you today merely to extract something that doesn't belong to you."
"Something that doesn't belong to me?"
Ye Wanwan was startled by his answer.
What did he mean "something that didn't belong to her"? She didn't know this man at all, so she shouldn't have ever taken anything of his.
Ye Wanwan snorted. "Heh… I'd like to hear what doesn't belong to me and what you'd like to take."
"The ring on your finger."
The thin man didn't beat about the bush and got straight to the point. His gaze landed on the ring that Si Yehan handed to her recently.
"This…?" Ye Wanwan looked at the simple ring pensively.
When Si Yehan handed this ring to her, he told her that this ring originally belonged to her and he merely kept it safe for her, but he didn't know the use and history of this ring either.
Ye Wanwan didn't expect she would become a target as soon as she received this ring.
"Who are you?" Ye Wanwan asked.
"You don't need to know that. This ring doesn't belong to you, so you just need to hand it over," the slim man answered expressionlessly.
"What a joke." Ye Wanwan smirked coldly. "I'm wearing this ring, so who does it belong to if not me? Don't tell me it belongs to you."
Ye Wanwan previously didn't take this ring to heart, but it appeared this ring definitely wasn't a simple accessory. There had to be some kind of secret behind it or else who would come and try to steal this ring?
"So… you aren't willing to hand it over…?" The slim man started slowly walking toward Ye Wanwan. "Then I'll have to take it myself."
The slim man stopped in front of her and reached for her ring.
Ye Wanwan tilted to the side.
However, the man's hand followed like a shadow and easily grabbed Ye Wanwan's left shoulder.
Only then did Ye Wanwan realize that this man could've even been a top expert in the Independent State!
She wouldn't be able to withstand even a move from this man in her sober state.
Unfortunately, Ye Wanwan hadn't carried any liquor with her after arriving in China since she never expected to encounter any sort of real danger here.
Ye Wanwan's eyes shifted, and she looked at the man. "There *is* a way for you to get this ring… You just need to tell me who you are… and why you want this ring. I'll give it to you then."
"None of your business," the thin man retorted.
