Song Shijing covered Song Shiyu’s mouth and warned him in a low voice, “Shut up! If you continue talking nonsense, your salary will be gone!”
Although he had already stopped him, Song Shiyu’s words still reached Qiao Xi’s ears. She lowered her head in embarrassment. Gu Zheng’s eyes were slightly cold. He looked at the door and gestured for the two of them to get lost. Then, he asked with a smile, “Mrs. Gu, do you think I’m childish too?”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes and shook her head crazily. “No, you’re not childish at all. My husband is the most handsome man in the world, and he’s especially understanding. I only went to the Medical Association today to investigate who gave Xia Cheng the medicine, not to see that man.”
Gu Zheng nodded. “Mhm.”
Qiao Xi continued to explain, “Who knew that I would meet that person? He seemed to know that I was coming, so he specially waited for me there. That man is Meng Fan, the person who spread the news that my blood can detoxify poison. We’re irreconcilable, so how could I have arranged to meet him?
“Believe me, Ah Zheng. I have a clean conscience!”
She said it with a serious expression. She was just short of swearing.
Then, Gu Zheng said casually, “So the Medical Association’s base is in Blue Dream Pavilion!”
Qiao Xi was stunned for a moment. This was not the main point. The main point was that she really did not go on a date with another man. This was all a misunderstanding!
Gu Zheng was silent for a moment before standing up slightly. He reached out and pulled her into his arms. His tone was gentle like water. “I was just worried that you’d be in danger. I’m not angry.”
He knew that Qiao Xi had gone to see Meng Fan, but that man was too mysterious and he did not know what his motive was. He was worried about Qiao Xi meeting him alone, so before Qiao Xi returned, he had been very uneasy.
Qiao Xi said in a soft voice, “I won’t encounter any danger. I’m very powerful!”
Gu Zheng’s eyes were filled with smiles. “It’s naturally not a problem for you to deal with that bunch of trash from the Xia family, but you don’t know who Meng Fan is at all. Perhaps you’re not his match.”
After the two of them left Blue Dream Pavilion, the person in charge sent a message saying that he could not find any clues about Meng Fan.
Qiao Xi’s gaze was slightly cold as she looked at Gu Zheng. “Then what did you find?”
Gu Zheng held her hand and wrote the word ‘capital’ on her palm. Meng Fan was from the capital?
Qiao Xi’s expression became even uglier. The hacker, Mo Yuan, could only find out that Meng Fan came from the capital and could not find any other information. Presumably, Gu Zheng had already used the power of Stars, but he could only find this small clue.
She had already contacted Mu Ling and Mu Ming to ask them to help investigate, but they found nothing.
It was just that the capital was so big. Where could they start?
Gu Zheng’s voice was indifferent. “Stars and Dark Net are investigating this together. However, even with our strength and the interference of Blue Dream Pavilion, we still can’t find out Meng Fan’s identity. This means that Meng Fan has a very powerful backer.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he held Qiao Xi’s hand tightly and said softly, “Perhaps Meng Fan came from a large family in the capital. The power behind him is swift and decisive. If they don’t give us any clues to investigate, ordinary families won’t be able to do it at all. Hence, we’ll start investigating the few large families in the capital. Perhaps we’ll discover something new.”
Qiao Xi nodded, but she rarely went to the capital with Gu Zheng, nor did she have any dealings with the families in the capital. Qiao Xi really could not think of anyone who would have a grudge against her.
After thinking for a long time, Qiao Xi simply gave up. She would deal with whatever came her way. Meng Fan would attack again, and there would be a time when he would expose himself.
The next morning, Qiao Xi went to Li City University after breakfast. There was a g meeting today, and everyone was gathered in the hall. The students were noisy and discussing excitedly.
“I heard that the university has invited Mr. Yi to be a judge for this calligraphy competition. There’s also Mr. Shang from the National Painting and Calligraphy Association. What a scene!”
Another person said, “I heard that the university is recruiting participants. All teachers and students can participate. Do you think anyone from Class 3 will participate?”
In the eyes of Li City University, Class 3 was just a group of hedonistic sons and daughters who got in through their connections. They were ignorant and incompetent, which was a disgrace to Li City University. Even though they had done well in the past few exams, it could not change the others’ impression of them.
The boy who spoke just now was from Class 1. He looked at a girl beside him. “Muxue, I remember that you’ve been learning calligraphy since you were young and even won many awards. You should have already signed up, right?”
The girl smiled and nodded. “Yes, I’ve already registered.”
