In the night, Leng Shaoting called Gu Ning so Gu Ning asked him what his maternal grandfathers name was and the address of the place where he used to live.
Because Gu Ning asked the questions casually, Leng Shaoting didnt think further about it.
He told her that his maternal grandfather was Ye Zhengye, and that the place he used to live was at XX Road in the northern district.
The house was still there, but only the housekeeper and his wife were living there.
After Ye Zhengye and his wife passed away, the other members of the Ye family moved out as well, so Leng Shaoting told the housekeeper to stay there.
The house was empty anyway.
The next day, Gu Ning got up early to run.
Jing Yunyao heard that Gu Ning was up, so she left the bed too, then went to run along with Gu Ning.
It wasnt convenient for her to practice her cultivation right now, so she could only improve her physical health.
Cultivators needed to exercise too.
When they walked outside, Gu Ning said to Jing Yunyao, “Mother, Shaoting told me that your adopted fathers name is Ye Zhengye, and that the place he used to live is at XX Road in the northern district.
The house is still there, but only the housekeeper and his wife are living there.
We can visit it after having breakfast.”
Hearing the name Ye Zhengye, Jing Yunyao felt familiar, but she couldnt remember the mans face.
“Sure.” Jing Yunyao nodded.
“Oh, whats the name of the Ye familys housekeeper” asked Jing Yunyao.
“Meng Zhengde,” said Gu Ning.
Gu Ning ran into Jiang Ruiqin that morning.
Although Jiang Ruiqin knew that it was impossible for him to be together with Gu Ning, he still wanted to see her.
Therefore, as long as it wasnt rainy, Jiang Ruiqin would go out to run in the morning trying to meet Gu Ning.
He would also run in the morning even if Gu Ning didnt live here, but he wouldnt be as diligent.
“Hi, Gu Ning, been a while!” Jiang Ruiqin was excited to see her.
“Hi, Ruiqin, been a while,” said Gu Ning.
Jiang Ruiqin saw Jing Yunyao who ran next to Gu Ning.
He was struck dumb for a second, and felt that she looked familiar, but couldnt remember where they had met before.
“Hi, nice to meet you, maam,” said Jiang Ruiqin politely.
“Nice to meet you too.” Jing Yunyao smiled at him.
She noticed Jiang Ruiqins reaction when he saw her, but said nothing about it.
After that, Jiang Ruiqin ran with them till he was out of strength.
When they were running together, Jiang Ruiqin glanced at Jing Yunyao once in a while, trying to remember who she was.
Jing Yunyao asked Gu Ning after Jiang Ruiqin was gone, “Ningning, who is he Why do I feel like he knows me”
“Oh, his name is Jiang Ruiqin, the grandson of Master Lengs good old friend, Jiang Zhongyu.
The Jiang family and the Leng family have been allies for generations, so I bet they must know you, but he was too young when he last saw you,” said Gu Ning.
Jing Yunyao nodded.
After running for a while longer, Gu Ning and Jing Yunyao went back home.
They both went to have a shower, and then had breakfast together later.
When they finished breakfast, they were ready to go to the Ye familys old house.
However, because it was far from where they were right now, they spent nearly an hour on the road.
The capital city was too large and too busy, so it wasnt easy to get used to the pace of living there.
Luckily, Gu Ning had stayed in the capital for many years before, so it wasnt difficult for her to get used to it, but Jing Yunyao needed more time.
“The capital city is too big! We have to spend at least half an hour on the road every time,” said Jing Yunyao.
“Ha-ha, youre right, and its very hard to have a house here,” said Gu Ning.
If she didnt have her Jade Eyes, she wouldnt have confidence to build her business empire here, because although she appeared very successful right now, she wasnt comparable to businessmen in the capital.
Most successful businesses gathered in the capital and City B after all.
The Ye familys old house stood in the old district, and although most of the surrounding buildings became skyscrapers, it still stayed the same.
Jing Yunyao felt it looked very familiar.
The gate of the Ye familys old house was made of iron, and they were able to see inside, where an old couple in their sixties were watering and trimming flowers and other plants in the front yard.
Although the house was old, it was very clean.
“Do you want to go inside” Gu Ning asked Jing Yunyao.
“Sure, but we should tell them to keep it a secret from Shaoting,” said Jing Yunyao.
After that, they walked forward together.
Meng!” Gu Ning called outside the iron gate.
Meng Zhengde and his wife turned to look at the iron door, but they couldnt see Gu Ning and Jing Yunyao clearly because they were losing their sight.
Anyway, Meng Zhengde walked towards them later.
“Who are you” asked Meng Zhengde.
Right when he finished that question, he saw Jing Yunyaos face and looked shocked.
He was too shocked to call her name.
In his memory, Yunyao was already dead for years.
