990 Are You Joining the Race?
Over 35 teams from 50 countries participated in the race.
Zi Yi was the club owner, so she was in charge of the event.
All the managers from each team were surrounding her now.
Everyone wanted to know if Zi Yi was taking part in the race, but she deliberately withheld it from them. The manager from Country C asked candidly, “Are you taking part or not?”
Zi Yi smiled and replied in a cocky tone, “Does it matter? Whatever happens, my club will come in first.”
The manager from Country L sneered and said, “I suggest you do not talk big. If you don’t take part in the race, I think we all stand a good chance of being the champion.”
“Really?” Zi Yi looked around at everyone.

“That goes without saying.” The manager from Country K was equally confident. “As long as you don’t take part in the race, the rest of us have a fair chance of winning.”
“Since you’re so confident, I won’t take part this time then.”
The moment Zi Yi said that she was not joining the race, everyone was delighted.
“Without her, the rest of us will have a fair chance at winning. Why doesn’t the winner buy us dinner?”
“Good idea. We can take the chance to discuss sports car modifications at the same time.”
“I agree. Boss Zi, we know the cars in your club were specially modified. When the time comes, I hope you can tell us more about the tech.”
Zi Yi could tell that they were here to find out more about her sports car modification technology and the race was really secondary.
She leaned her chin against her hand and pondered as everyone looked at her expectantly. Her eyes gleamed as she said, “Well, I don’t mind sharing it. However, I’m not a charity, so you can’t expect me to give you the knowledge at no charge.”
“We get it. As long as you don’t mind sharing it with us, it’s only fair that we pay for the tech.”
“Absolutely right! We can pay if you are open to sharing it.”
Zi Yi nodded and said, “However, I have a small condition.”
“What kind of condition?”
“Miss Zi, just tell us. I’m sure we can help.”
Zi Yi nodded and continued speaking, “I’m sure someone will be taking bets for the race and I want to join in. However, I want to bet on the one who comes in last. Are any of you willing to come in last?”
The moment the crowd heard what she said, they were stunned. They looked at each other at a loss. Everyone seemed reluctant to help.
This was hilarious. This was a race and no one wanted to come in last.
If they came in last, they would become a complete laughingstock.
Zi Yi noticed their reluctance and looked disappointed. However, she did not want to force anyone to do it. She simply turned around to walk off.
“Just think about it. We have 20 minutes before the bets close. In 20 minutes, if no one is willing to do it, then never mind.”
She headed to the door once she was done talking.
After she left the room, the managers in the room looked at each other.
The manager from Country L was the first to say, “I think she was just saying that deliberately. This is a very important race. No one wants to come in last. If we come in last and disappoint the fans, they are going to hate us for it.”
The manager from Country P chimed in. “Even if I can’t get Miss Zi’s sports car modification technology, I can’t tell my team to come in last and ruin them.”
The others felt the same way.
Zi Yi pursed her lips as she walked out. Her phone happened to ring just then, so she answered it.
Dou Zerui promptly suppressed his voice and asked, “Are you taking bets this time?”
“Of course, we are.” Zi Yi smiled as she spoke. “How much are you planning to put up?”
Dou Zerui said mysteriously, “I’m naturally going to throw in everything I have, including the money I’ve put aside for my future wedding. For the sake of my happiness, aren’t you going to give me a tip?”
Zi Yi was tickled by his reaction. “I can’t tell you yet. Give me ten more minutes.”
“We have slightly over ten minutes before we can place bets, but you’re not telling me. Are you trying to do something big?” Dou Zerui got excited by the prospect.
Zi Yi was about to speak, but she caught sight of a familiar silhouette from the corner of her eyes. She narrowed her eyes and said to Dou Zerui, “I have to take care of something. I will tell you when you can follow the bet. I promise you can have a grand wedding.”
The moment she finished her sentence, she added and said, “That’s provided you can find a girlfriend first.”
Dou Zerui sneered huffily through his nose and said, “Are you looking down on me? Just you wait. I just might land myself a girl in a matter of days.”
Zi Yi replied, “Fine then. If you get yourself a girl in a matter of days, I will give you a big gift.”
Before Dou Zerui had the time to react and be happy, she continued speaking, “When the time comes, you need to prepare red packets as well. You need to give my family three red packets.”
“What do you mean? Why three?” Dou Zerui did not quite catch her drift. He simply thought Zi Yi was extorting him for money.
Zi Yi smiled and said, “My babies can come out today. As their uncle, aren’t you giving them red packets?”
Dou Zerui used a sad tone of voice as he said, “How could I forget about them? Sigh. From the looks of it, I need to borrow money from a loan shark then.”
Zi Yi answered, “Sure thing. As long as my kids get their red packets, I don’t care how you got the money.”
Dou Zerui asked, “Can you lend me some money then?”
Zi Yi, “…”
Dou Zerui said ingratiatingly, “I just need to borrow the money for a day. Once I win, I can return the money.”
Zi Yi replied, “Fine. How much do you need?”
As she spoke, she quickly looked in the direction the familiar silhouette had disappeared in and followed behind him.
When she got to the turn, she suppressed her voice and said, “Is it one hundred million or two? Or perhaps more? I don’t have time to talk over here. Just call Ah Jing directly and talk to him about it.”
Dou Zerui assumed she was busy, so he acknowledged her and ended the conversation with her.
Zi Yi put away her phone and she turned and headed to the corridor.
This area consisted of lounge areas for the racers. Each team was assigned a private room.
All the racers had already entered their designated rooms, so it was quiet in the corridor.
Zi Yi walked for a while until she noticed a lounge room door that was open nearby. She walked around pretending she was working here and just doing her rounds.
When she was almost at the door, she heard someone saying from inside, “I heard that Zi Yi isn’t joining the race this time. This means our team stands a chance at winning.”
Someone else said, “Don’t forget the cars in her club are all specially modified. Our cars can’t keep up with them in terms of speed.”
“Does it matter? Have you forgotten our trump card? I’m sure we’ll win the race.”
Zi Yi felt very curious about the trump card the person had mentioned. She pretended to casually walk towards their door. When she got there, she quickly glanced inside the room from the corner of her eye. She recognized all the racers inside and did not notice any new faces.
Just as she was about to continue walking, she suddenly sensed someone looking for her.
She instinctively looked over and made eye contact with someone.
