Chapter 1802: I Cant Help with It
“Didnt you lie to me” The cultivator got his reason back and had doubts.
Although Gu Ning seemed normal, she might be pretending to be honest.
After all, she wasnt an ordinary girl.
“Why should I lie to you” said Gu Ning in a resigned tone, as if she was displeased being doubted.
“Since you dont know the person, how did the person know you have connections in the Palace Museum” asked the cultivator.
“I dont know you either, but you know me! There are many people who know me but I dont know them.
People can easily search for information about me on the Internet,” said Gu Ning, then she explained.
“Well, the person saw me socializing with the staff of the museum.”
Even though Gu Nings words made sense, the cultivator still had doubts.
He continued to ask, “You at least should know the persons name, right How about the persons age, gender, and phone number If you know nothing about the person, how do you contact each other”
“Hey, watch your tone! Im not a criminal.
You should be aware that youre asking me for help.
Besides, its not right to leak information about another person without his or her agreement!” said Gu Ning with dissatisfaction.
“Im sorry, its my fault.
I was too anxious to behave myself just now.
Miss Gu, please forgive me.” The cultivator apologized at once.
Like what Gu Ning said, he was asking for her help, so he should be nice to her.
“Well, the Jade with Dragon Phoenix Cloud Pattern is really important for me.
Please do me a favor.
Can you talk with the person first about that Perhaps the person will agree to sell it to me.”
“Fine,” said Gu Ning.
In order to distract the cultivators attention from her, Gu Ning decided to act with him.
This cultivator wasnt unkind to her, so there was no need for Gu Ning to have another enemy.
She wouldnt seek trouble anyway.
Gu Ning then took out her phone and dialed a number, which she had got with the name of “Tang Aining”.
Because it was put in her telepathic eye space, no one would answer it.
“Sorry, no one answered.
I cant help with it,” said Gu Ning.
The cultivator was upset.
He could also hear that the phone kept ringing for a long while, but no one answered.
Although he felt that Gu Ning might randomly make a call, he felt too embarrassed to point that out.
The cultivator felt it might be just a show directed and played by Gu Ning on her own, so he decided to keep on spying on her to see whether he could find anything new about her.
Even if he was going to use violence, it wasnt the right time now.
“Miss Gu, would you please help me pay some attention to it If the person calls you back, please let me know,” said the cultivator and took out his name card.
“This is my name card.” He handed it to Gu Ning.
“Sure.” Gu Ning agreed, but it was totally another thing whether she would really do that in the future.
Gu Ning wasnt so naive that she believed the cultivator had been convinced by her words or he might have hopes that what she told him could be true.
He might get a surprising result if he took a step back.
Even though what she told him wasnt true, he could still continue to follow her to see what he should do next.
After all, he already knew her school and dorm room, so he wasnt afraid that he might lose her.
However, if he had an argument with Gu Ning right now, he might suffer a great loss if what Gu Ning told him was true.
Gu Ning didnt mind it actually, because it wouldnt change anything.
“Miss Gu, do you want to go out with me right now” asked the cultivator.
“Thanks, but I have an appointment with my friends to have an adventure here.
I wont leave within a short time.
Dongfang, see you!” said Gu Ning.
After receiving his name card, Gu Ning learned his name, Dongfang Qi.
Since his surname was Dongfang, he was highly likely to be a member of the Dongfang family in the cultivation world.
Because of Dongfang Ziyu, Gu Ning had a bad impression of members of the Dongfang family.
Although Dongfang Qi was nice to her, he did it for a purpose, so Gu Ning didnt have a good impression of him.
As long as they could avoid conflict, it would be the best, because it wouldnt do her any good if they had disagreement.
“Alright, I should go now.
Miss Gu, please help me with it.” Dongfang Qi had doubts that Gu Nings words might not be true, but he wouldnt ask her about that.
If he wanted to know the answer, he could keep on spying on her.
Although Gu Ning had discovered that he had been following her these days, he felt he could prevent it from happening again by staying farther away from her.
After that, the cultivator left.
Gu Ning watched the cultivator walking far away, then went to observe the inside of the well.
The cultivator was still in the range of her senses, which wasnt beyond Gu Nings expectations, but it wouldnt be a problem as long as he didnt come over.
Gu Ning used her Jade Eyes and her sight fell on the two skeletons.
Beside the two skeletons, two jade pendants were scattered and a few pieces of jewelry were scattered around the head of one of the skeletons.
Given the shapes of the skeletons, one was lying in the arms of the other skeleton.
The skeleton lying underneath was more well-formed and was obviously male.
The skeleton lying in the arms of the male skeleton was relatively petite, and there were a few pieces of jewelry scattered around its skull, which must be a female.
Seeing that, Gu Ning guessed that they might be a dead couple.
There was faint Yin in the well, so they must have died with resentment.
Gu Ning looked at the pair of skeletons, and suddenly a scene appeared in front of her eyes.
Right next to this well, a man wearing a guard uniform was stabbed by a sword, then was kicked by one foot and fell into the well.
Immediately afterwards, a woman in luxurious manchu clothes also jumped into it, which was the end of the scene.
The woman seemed to be a concubine from her clothing!
All of a sudden, Gu Ning came up with a dramatic story.
The emperor took his concubines to the palace to avoid the summer heat.
Then a certain concubines affair with a guard was exposed and the guard was beheaded afterwards, so the concubine died for her love.
Although it was a story made up by Gu Ning, she felt it was close to the mark.
If so, she could understand their result.
There might be other reasons, but it had nothing to do with Gu Ning no matter what the real reason was.
It was already history.
Gu Ning wasnt greedy, so she had no intention of climbing down the well to get the jewelry.
