Saying that, Jing Yunyao suddenly realized that it might cause a misunderstanding that she did it in order to not be affected by Gu Ning, because the man aimed to follow Gu Ning after all.
“Im simply afraid that youll get in bigger trouble if we run into the man and let him know about our relationship.”
“I have the same worry, and I dont want you to be affected.
His target is me anyway, so I think I should go out first.
If I see him, Ill lead him away.
If not, Ill tell you to come out.
What do you think” said Gu Ning.
“Well…” Jing Yunyao didnt want Gu Ning to take that risk.
“Itll be fine.
I promise,” said Gu Ning.
“Great,” said Leng Shaoting.
He understood that Gu Ning already made up her mind, and he knew that she could protect herself well.
Chu Peihan and the others didnt know what had happened, but heard that someone was following Gu Ning, and Gu Ning didnt want them to be affected.
Even though they didnt care about it, Gu Ning already made the arrangement, and they had to listen to her.
Therefore, Gu Ning walked out alone, and carefully felt everything around her to see whether the cultivator was still there.
After looking around for a while, she called Leng Shaoting and told them to come out.
The group of them then left together and walked ahead.
They didnt stop appreciating the palace after running into the cultivator, because they werent afraid of him.
They simply wanted to avoid unnecessary trouble.
“Boss, since someone followed you, is it alright if we continue to walk around here” asked Chu Peihan worriedly.
“Right, boss, we dont want to bring trouble to you,” said Mu Ke.
The others expressed their worries too.
Gu Ning smiled at them.
“Its fine, just an unimportant person, so we shouldnt be affected by him.”
Since Gu Ning said that, the others dropped the topic.
Anyway, it wasnt easy for other people to hurt Gu Ning.
The cultivator entered the museum several minutes after Gu Ning walked into it, but he went in the opposite direction from Leng Shaoting and the others, so they didnt see each other.
When he arrived at the jade exhibition area, he failed to find the Jade with Dragon Phoenix Cloud Pattern after walking a round.
He didnt know where it went, and began to wonder whether Gu Ning really had it in her hands just then.
If she had it in her hands, why did she walk out and then bring it back
He didnt want other cultivators to know the secret about the Jade with Dragon Phoenix Cloud Pattern.
Actually, he didnt think it was possible, because he learned it from a book buried in a previous cultivators grave.
It was said that the Jade with Dragon Phoenix Cloud Pattern could accumulate magical power, which was very helpful for cultivation.
However, it disappeared now, and he was full of anger and anxiety.
The man wanted to find Gu Ning, but the palace was too large, and he honestly didnt know where he should go after walking out of the museum.
All of a sudden, he remembered that Gu Nings car was still stopped outside the South Gate, so he went to wait there for Gu Ning.
When it was almost 4:50 pm, Gu Ning and the others were about to leave, because tourists would be cleared out from 5 pm.
They didnt leave through the door which they came by, and instead left from the North Gate, because the South Gate was too far.
However, their cars were left at the South Gate, so they still needed to go back there.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting would take a taxi to get their cars back, while the others stayed at the North Gate.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting left Jing Yunyao with Chu Peihan and the others.
They werent worried that she might feel bored because Chu Peihan and Hao Ran were talkative, and they already got familiar with Jing Yunyao on the road.
Mu Ke and the others might not be as talkative as Chu Peihan and Hao Ran, but they also talked with Jing Yunyao once in a while.
Jing Yunyao wasnt as quiet as Gu Ning, nor as talkative as Chu Peihan, and she got along well with Gu Nings friends.
With a group of young people by her sides, Jing Yunyao became cheerful too.
After Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting got in the taxi, they casually chatted with each other.
Because there was a taxi driver, they had to be careful.
The taxi driver was a man about 40, and he kept glancing at Gu Ning from the rearview mirror.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting noticed what he was doing, but didnt say anything about it.
“Miss, are you the famous Gu Ning on the Internet” The taxi driver finally asked Gu Ning with curiosity.
He actually wasnt very sure of it.
Since the taxi driver asked that question, Gu Ning couldnt ignore him.
“Yeah, Im Gu Ning, nice to meet you,” said Gu Ning politely to him.
Hearing that, the taxi driver got excited.
“Ha-ha, Im quite lucky that I have you in my car today!”
It wasnt very likely to happen, because Gu Ning was a successful businesswoman and normally had an exclusive car.
In the following minutes, the taxi driver kept complimenting Gu Ning for her great achievements and Gu Ning thanked him kindly.
However, before the taxi driver talked enough about her, they arrived at their destination.
When Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting wanted to pay the bill, the taxi driver refused to take the money, but Gu Ning wasnt willing to take advantage of him, so he had to accept it in the end.
“Why do we get out of the car right here” asked Leng Shaoting with confusion, because they were about 40 meters away from the parking lot.
Gu Ning said, “I just remembered that the cultivator might be waiting for me at the South Gate, and I dont want you to be exposed.
Ill go to see first.
If hes absent, you can follow me then.”
