However, the moment she looked up, she was stunned.
There were no obstructions around the ring. It could be considered a loss if she fell off the ring. At this moment, the woman in the black dress was standing there. The air in the basement was ventilated, and her black dress fluttered arrogantly with the wind.
In front of her, Tired Reno had collapsed to the ground, exhausted. He had already fainted.
Quentin narrowed his eyes as well.
The entire audience erupted. Everyone was asking, “Did you see what just happened?”
“Wait, Tired Reno went to hit someone, but why he did faint instead?”
Someone said weakly, “I… I think I saw 028 reach out her hand and gently hit Tired Reno.”
The crowd fell silent again.
Then, they saw 028 rubbing her wrist and looking around hesitantly. “Is it over?”
Only then did the referee react and announce, “028 wins!”
Nora walked to the side and jumped down from the ring.
The audience immediately gave way in fear.
They saw her walking along the crowd to the food section. There was a sofa over there. A man was sitting there hugging a girl.
After everyone simmered down, they could hear the little girl reciting a poem in her childish voice.
“…The stone path to the mountain is slanted.
He and she were deep in the clouds.
Dreaming of a princess meeting a prince.
But in reality, a dinosaur meets a frog…”
Nora stopped in her tracks. Veins popped out on her forehead.
When Cherry saw her walking over, she said excitedly, “Mommy, I’ve already memorized 300 poems! I didn’t peek at your competition earlier!”
Everyone was speechless.
What a strange family of three!!!
Initially, they thought that the woman was hungry when she went to the food section. However, after Nora walked over, she sat on the sofa beside the girl and told the man and the girl, “Wake me up at 8 o’clock.”
Then, she tilted her head slightly and fell asleep on the sofa.
Everyone was speechless.
His lips twitched. He felt that this woman was simply unreasonable. She had just defeated Tired Reno. Who was she?
Under everyone’s guesses, Nora really fell asleep.
Her dreams were strange and chaotic. In the end, she was not woken up by Justin, but by her own phone call.
She yawned and answered the call in a daze. She said angrily, “You better have something important to say.”
With that, she opened her eyes lazily and saw Justin and Cherry opposite her. Behind their masks, the two pairs of eyes were staring at her.
Cherry said softly, “Mommy has a very bad morning temper. It’s especially scary.”
Justin had a regretful look on his face. “It’s a pity I didn’t get the chance to see it.”
Cherry said, “Next time when we sleep together, I’ll let you take a look in the morning. We’re outside right now, so she’s a little restrained!”
Justin smiled. “Yes, I look forward to that day.”
Only then did she realize that she was in the sparring arena. The noisy crowd around her had prevented her from taking a good nap.
She subconsciously sat up straight and wiped the non-existent saliva from the corner of her mouth.
The two people opposite her were speechless.
Solo’s voice came from the other end of the line. “Sigh, stop scaring me. I found some information about Ryan. Didn’t you ask me to help you investigate?”
Nora raised her eyebrows. “What?”
“Ryan was the second son of the Smiths back then. Ian is the third son of the Smiths. You know that, right? Back then, the eldest son of the Smiths was useless. As he liked to mess around outside, the previous head of the Smiths decided to look for the next patriarch between Ryan and Ian. Unfortunately, Ryan’s private life was chaotic and he was with many women. It was said that he even got a small celebrity pregnant. In addition, although Ian was three years younger than Ryan, he had already displayed outstanding aptitude. Therefore, Ian was made the person in charge at that time. Ryan became more carefree from then on, but he was actually not as useless as he looked.”
All the news Nora heard about Ryan from the Smiths was about his bad aspects.
For example, he was slippery and unreliable.
She narrowed her eyes. Just as she was thinking about what Ryan was doing, Solo said, “You know Quentin, right? It wouldn’t be surprising even if you don’t know. From Quentin’s generation, the Smiths have hidden his existence. Outsiders won’t know about him. They let Quentin handle things that aren’t suitable to be seen by the public. The Smiths’ hidden forces are all in Quentin’s hands. You’ve just reunited with the Smiths, so it’s normal that you don’t know about him.”
The second Smiths member she met was Quentin.
However, she did not interrupt Solo. She knew that this person liked to keep people in suspense when he sent messages, so she decided not to say anything. As expected, Solo felt that it was meaningless to wait for a reply from her. He pursed his lips and said, “But do you know who founded this dark force?”
Nora frowned. “Ryan?”
If that wasn’t the case, why did he say so much nonsense?
Just as she was about to lose her temper, Solo accurately grasped her temper and hurriedly explained, “It was Ian. However, Ian inherited the Smiths and became the patriarch on the surface, so he handed that force to Ryan.”
Nora narrowed her eyes.
“Also, Ryan is from Irvin School of Martial Arts. He can be considered a member of the pugilistic world. He has a certain status in New York’s pugilistic world. I heard that he hosted two tournaments back then. Up until now, most of the ways to earn money in the tournaments were thought of by Ian and him.”
She was stunned. “The Smiths own shares in the martial arts tournament?”
“It’s not shares. Ryan used to be the president of the pugilistic world. Even now, his name is still on the title.”
Nora narrowed her eyes.
Solo said, “I asked around again and realized that although the president of the pugilistic world had disappeared, the association would often receive some orders from him to prevent the pugilistic world from becoming a mess over the years.”
Nora hung up.
She held her chin and began to think. She did not expect to hear news about Ryan when she was only participating in a martial arts tournament.
She wanted to look for Ryan only to get his DNA sample. She would compare the two DNA match results to determine whose daughter she was.
After all, Lily had said that her genes had mutated. The comparison between her and Ian’s DNA samples was actually not accurate.
As she was thinking about this, she suddenly saw a person in ragged clothes flash past not far away, making her frown.
Wasn’t this Old Maddy?
Why was he here?!
