Other people understood that Leng Shaoting wanted to have a private talk with Gu Ning, so none of them followed and they simply said good-bye to Gu Ning in the living room.
When they walked outside, Leng Shaoting asked Gu Ning, “When did you meet my mother Why didnt you tell me” He wasnt questioning Gu Ning, but was confused about it.
Gu Ning briefly told Leng Shaoting the whole story, and Leng Shaoting was deeply touched because she really cared about him.
He stared at her with love in his eyes and ached to press her into his arms.
However, there were many people around them, so he could only watch her leaving.
The car which was used to pick up Chu Peihan and her other friends was ready, but Leng Shaoting couldnt go with her right now, so Gu Ning could only go alone.
It stopped in Shengshi Hotel.
Leng Shaoting originally arranged for someone to drive it for Gu Ning, but Gu Ning rejected it and said that she could go to drive it on her own.
Although Leng Shaoting wouldnt go with her, there still would be six people in all including herself.
Therefore, Gu Ning couldnt drive her own car, because it could only accommodate five people.
The capital had strict traffic rules, so they shouldnt squeeze more people into a car than its capacity.
Therefore Leng Shaoting prepared a fancy MPV with seven seats for her, which was enough.
Because it was still early, Gu Ning drove her car back to Century City first before she left for Shengshi Hotel.
Shengshi Hotel had a branch in every district in the capital, and Leng Shaoting arranged for Mu Ke and the others to stay in the Shengshi Hotel in the southern district for their convenience, because it was closer to Century City.
Gu Ning stopped her car, then walked to take a taxi.
However, when she almost reached the gate, she saw Baili Zongxue walking inside and Baili Zongxue noticed her too.
Baili Zongxue hadnt seen Gu Ning for a long time, so she was excited to see her right now.
She walked towards Gu Ning at once and greeted her.
“Hi, Gu Ning, been a while! Have you been very busy these days”
“Been a while.
Yeah, I have been a little busy recently,” said Gu Ning.
“Oh, by the way, Ive been accepted by the Capital University too! Well study in the same university,” said Baili Zongxue with great excitement.
Although she tried to form a relationship with Gu Ning for a purpose, she also wanted to make friends with her.
In addition, her purpose wouldnt hurt Gu Ning.
“Really Thats wonderful!” Gu Ning actually wasnt surprised, because she already knew, but she still pretended to be surprised on the surface.
“Well, I accidentally cut my hand a few days ago, and I used the medicine produced by your company.
The wound stopped bleeding at once, and there was a scar within several hours.
It disappeared after two days, which is quite amazing! However, I dont see any special substances in it.
Is there any magical things in it” asked Baili Zongxue with excitement and admiration, but she carefully observed Gu Nings expressions when she said that.
She was aware that the medicines and make-up products produced by Gu Nings companies contained magical power, and she purposely said that to sound out Gu Ning.
If Gu Ning looked a little guilty or uneasy, she must know about the existence of magical power.
Moreover, it should be kept a secret from other people, so normally people would feel guilty or uneasy when others asked about it.
If Gu Ning stayed calm, it was possible that she didnt know that the magical power was something mortals shouldnt know.
Those were Baili Zongxues guesses.
Although Gu Ning wasnt an ordinary girl and she might not be able to see anything from her face, she still wanted to try it.
Hearing that question, Gu Ning knew that Baili Zongxue was sounding her out.
She didnt feel displeased, and stayed calm as usual.
“Yeah, there indeed is a special substance which isnt written on the list, but Im afraid I cant tell you what it is.”
Seeing Gu Nings calm face, Baili Zongxue believed that she didnt know the importance of magical power.
Its your business, and I shouldnt know the details.”
Baili Zongxue had no intention to ask further about it, in case Gu Ning was suspicious of her.
They werent familiar after all, and even if they were familiar, they shouldnt talk about business secrets.
What Baili Zongxue didnt know was that Gu Ning was already aware of her real purpose.
Gu Ning was still kind to her just because she knew that she wouldnt hurt her.
“Um, I have something to deal with right now, and I have to go.
We can have a gathering when were free one day,” said Gu Ning.
“Sure!” Baili Zongxue said, then they separated.
Once Baili Zongxue turned around, she looked slightly upset, because they still found nothing useful after such a long time.
Dongfang Ziyu and Wu Shunhua had been spying on Gu Ning too, but they suddenly went back to the cultivation world.
No one knew whether they had found something useful, or simply went back for their cultivation.
After all, the kung fu competition was coming.
She hoped that the Dongfang family found nothing useful as well.
If the Dongfang family had the help of magical power, it would become stronger.
Gu Ning walked to the roadside, and she felt the air of a cultivator when she was waiting for a taxi.
It approached her from the left side, so Gu Ning knew that it wasnt Baili Zongxue, but it could be Baili Zongyang.
They were the only cultivators who lived here.
However, when Gu Ning looked over, she was surprised to see Jing Jining.
Although Gu Ning was surprised to see him here, he must have shown up for a reason.
Nevertheless, Gu Ning didnt think that Jing Jining came for her.
If it wasnt a coincidence, he must have come for Baili Zongxue.
As Jing Jining walked near, Gu Ning politely greeted him.
“Hi, Uncle Jing, what a coincidence!”
“Hi, are you free now I have something to talk about with you,” said Jing Jining.
In fact, he indeed didnt come for Gu Ning, and he simply followed Baili Zongxue and surprisingly found out that Baili Zongxue knew Gu Ning too, so he wanted to ask Gu Ning about something.
“Sure, but I only have 20 minutes,” said Gu Ning.
She realized that Jing Jining caught her talking with Baili Zongxue just then, so she guessed that he must want to talk with her about Baili Zongxue or Leng Shaoting.
“Where are you going I can send you there and well talk on the way,” said Jing Jining.
He drove a car this time, but it belonged to the hotel, because he didnt have a car in the capital.
