Chapter 124: The Villainess 7
Hearing Mu Chen’s inquiry, Ning Chuan moved his lips slightly at him. Although he did not say anything, Mu Chen immediately understood Ning Chuan’s signal.
Because this is the secret sign of their Thunderbolt Legion.
“Churong, congratulations on your recovery and discharge.”
Mu Chen’s heart was clear; he immediately turned around as his gaze fell on Xia Beibei’s body. When the two stood together, the men and women looked very well matched.
“I haven’t had time to visit you, you wouldn’t mind that, would you?”
Mu Chen looked at Xia Beibei with an apologetic face, and the topic of discussion was naturally diverted.
“How could that be?”
Xia Beibei smiled at the Male Lead-daren: “I understand all of this. I am already happy that you can come today.”
Before Xia Beibei’s voice fell, Lin Yixuan’s sneer sounded again: “Our Young Master Mu is really busy.”
“To each other.”
Mu Chen raised his eyebrows and glanced at Lin Yixuan. He then walked behind Ning Chuan again and fell silent.
Although they both grew up together since childhood, Mu Chen and Lin Yixuan have always been in turmoil. Even the people in the capital circle were also aware of it. Therefore, the people around them immediately scattered in twos and threes after seeing the scene at this time.
As the host of today’s banquet, Xia Beibei was naturally the most-watched tonight. Immediately after that, several young people gathered around her as they kept complimenting her.
Xia Beibei accepted all the compliments naturally, while her smile remained civil. However, in fact, she was really feeling depressed ——
So many delicious foods, I really want to eat it, ah! So hungry, ah!
However, to maintain her demeanor as Big Miss Gu, she can only continue to deal with the people around her. The occasional graceful sip of red wine was already the most incredible gift she could have.
The Gu family’s banquet went on very late. Mu Chen continued to tail behind Ning Chuan all night long. It was unknown what these two people plan to do. Lin Yixuan was accustomed to find fault with Mu Chen. Yet, maybe because Ning Chuan was present today, Lin Yixuan did not manage to find any chance to hit Mu Chen.
On the contrary, Lin Yixuan always doubts Ning Chuan’s appearance today. This smiling tiger can mix like a fish in the capital naturally, not a fuel-efficient lamp.
After finally getting through to the second half of the banquet, the lights were dimmed as many people started to dance and eat. Xia Beibei took this opportunity to find some free time, as she grabbed a plate of pastries and hid in a corner.
At this moment, suddenly another voice rang from the corner.
Hearing that voice, Xia Beibei was shocked: “Gu Qingnian, what are you doing? You scared me to death!”
It was too scary and terrifying. This guy was hiding in this corner so silently. Xia Beibei did not even notice another person here at first.
Hearing Xia Beibei’s voice, Gu Qingnian chuckled slightly. He then stared at her face and said faintly: “You are fine. Really great.”
Xia Beibei: …
If she were really frightened to death by him, wouldn’t that be awful?
Xia Beibei lowered his eyes and glanced at Gu Qingnian: “What do you mean by this? I don’t need your care.”
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Gu Qingnian stood up straight and looked sideways at the banquet hall: “Mu Chen is outstanding, but he might not be suitable for you. Maybe you can consider Regiment Commander Ning.”
Xia Beibei involuntarily whispered: “Gu Qingnian, what is your intention? Are you the one who invite Ning Chuan to this banquet?”
Xia Beibei has also wondered how that person could enter this banquet without invitations. As far as she knows, the Gu family did not give Ning Chuan an invitation!
However, Ning Chuan appeared here out of nowhere.
It turned out that everything was caused by Gu Qingnian.
“I invited him.”
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Gu Qingnian smiled slightly: “In this entire empire, only him worthy of you!”
“Oh, you really look up to me.”
Xia Beibei proudly raised his eyebrows: “But I don’t need others to tell me what Gu Churong likes. I will fight for what I want, and it will be useless if I do not like it.
It was this paranoid character that makes Gu Churong fall into a strange circle.
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Gu Qingnian also narrowed his eyes. But he continued to keep silent—
Yes, this is the Gu Churong he knows.
Even if she hit her head and bleed, she would never look back and never ask anyone for help. This is Gu Churong.
“In that case, I wish you good luck.”
Gu Qingnian left these words before he turned and left. Seeing his straight figure merged into the crowd, Xia Beibei sighed in his heart–
It was said that hateful person also has a tragic past.
In fact, Gu Churong and Gu Qingnian are both hateful people in this world, yet they are both also pitiful people…
The guests gradually dispersed at the end of the banquet.
Mu Chen still left with Ning Chuan. As soon as he arrived outside Gu’s house, Mu Chen couldn’t help but get into Ning Chuan’s car: “Regiment Commander, what have you found?”
Ning Chuan calmly looked directly at the windshield: “Blood shadows are the best at disguising. It is normal for us not to find them, and…This time the source of intelligence…”
“Regiment Commander, who told you this information?”
Hearing Ning Chuan’s words, Mu Chen’s expression also changed. Blood Shadow is the number one terrorist organization wanted by the Empire. They were also a mortal enemy of their Thunderbolt Legion. The plane bombing a few days ago was also done by Blood Shadow. This time information also indicated people from blood shadow mixed into the Gu’s banquet.
“Regiment Commander, is Blood Shadow’s goal… Gu Churong?”
One time might be a mistake. Then again, for it to happen two times, could it still be considered a coincidence?
There will never be so many coincidences in this world.
“I do not know.”
Ning Chuan spits out those words in a low voice: “This time, the intelligence was passed to me from the Third Intelligence Division.”
“Third Intelligence Division? Isn’t that the place where Gu Qingnian works?”
When Mu Chen heard Ning Chuan’s words, he could not help but mutter himself.
Yes, Gu Qingnian.
Ning Chuan’s expression became more serious–
Gu Qingnian gave him the information this time and the invitation letter for this banquet.
This Gu Qingnian…
He made him felt a little uncomfortable.
However, no abnormalities could be detected.
“Mu Chen, I remember that there are also people in your Mu family who work in Third Intelligence Division, right?”
Ning Chuan suddenly raised his eyes and glanced at Mu Chen: “Help me check Gu Qingnian. This must be done in secret. Don’t be discovered by Gu Qingnian!”
If the Elder Gu is an old fox and Gu Churong is a Hedong Lion, then Gu Qingnian is the only King Cobra in the Gu family…
That person definitely has a problem.
Amidst the night, Ning Chuan’s car eventually slowly left.
It was over, and all the guests drove off one after another.
Standing on the balcony on the third floor of Gu’s house, Gu Qingnian squinted his eyes with a weird smile on his lips while watching all the guests leave the compound…
