1669 Meeting a Group of People Similar to Those Who Frequented Rhine
She casually found a corner and waited.
While Qiao Nian was waiting, people arrived one after another. It was obvious that they were also participants in this Independent Continent gathering.
There were about eight people in the other party’s group. They had blonde hair and blue eyes. They looked typical of foreigners, with high noses and deep eyes. They all looked straight ahead when they walked in. They restrained their auras and went to the hotel reception to settle the procedures. The rest of them found a corner to wait like Qiao Nian.
A few of them had a sharp aura that could not be restrained.
The feeling they gave off was a little like those people who often went to Rhine.
They all deliberately restrained their auras to the best of their abilities.
Qiao Nian couldn’t help but take another look at them.
Someone on the other side seemed to have realized that she was looking at him. A pair of sharp eyes immediately looked in her direction.
Qiao Nian was a little surprised by the other party’s sensitivity. She casually looked away and pulled down her cap to cover her face.
Not far away, one of the people Qiao Nian had noticed patted the man’s shoulder and asked.
The first man to notice Qiao Nian looking in their direction slowly retracted his gaze. He frowned slightly and shook his head in confusion. “Nothing. I just realized that someone was looking at us, so I followed their gaze and looked over. In the end, I realized that it was a girl. She didn’t look too old. She looked away when she met my gaze. I guess I was thinking too much. It was just an accident. She thought that there were many of us and curiously took a look.”
As he spoke, the people beside him also looked in Qiao Nian’s direction. They saw that she was just an ordinary girl. They couldn’t tell anything.
He couldn’t help but laugh. “I think you’re overthinking it too. How old is she? Probably eighteen or nineteen years old. She must still be a student. She might have come with her mentor. Don’t think too much.”
Mo Xi pursed his lips, then frowned and glanced in the girl’s direction again.
The girl stood alone at the side. Not far away, there were indeed a few middle-aged men who seemed to be researchers. They looked very much like the instructors his companions had mentioned.
He looked at the girl again. She was dressed simply and did not bring anything else with her. No matter how he looked at her, she looked like an ordinary person.
Reassured again, he decided he’d been too tense and was overthinking things.
Mo Xi didn’t wait for the other party to finish. He retracted his gaze and lowered his voice. “Master Wang and the others have already arrived and are staying elsewhere. Master Wang asked us to stay in this hotel for now. There might be news of Wang Fei here.”
The person beside him fell silent and nodded, indicating that he understood.

Qiao Nian didn’t look over. She stood there in boredom for a while.
Finally, Master Cheng and Nie Mi returned together.
However, both of them did not look good.
“What’s wrong? What happened?” Liang Conglin immediately followed and asked.
Master Cheng was furious. “The room that was originally reserved for us was changed from the standard rooms in Area A to a large bedroom. They said that the number of people coming this time exceeded their expectations. There were not enough rooms reserved in the hotel previously, so they could only change it to a large bedroom for us.”
They had originally planned for two people to share a room.
It was more convenient to stay in the standard room.
It was inconvenient for two people to sleep on the same bed!
Liang Conglin was also dumbfounded. “Master Cheng, how should we arrange the rooms now?”
