Ji Shiting’s eyes dimmed as he watched the woman leave. He walked to the head of the bed, took out a cigarette box and lighter, and lit up a cigarette.
Amidst the smoke, the man’s handsome face looked gloomy. After a while, he suddenly thought of something and smiled.
He put out his cigarette, left the room and went downstairs.
Sister Xiu had been feeling uneasy ever since Ji Shiting returned. She immediately went up to him and said, “Young Master, I…”
“You don’t have to explain.” Ji Shiting looked at her. “But there won’t be a next time.”
Sister Xiu couldn’t help heaving a sigh of relief. She knew that no matter how many reasons she had, she had still revealed Young Master’s private affairs. Even if the person she had reported to was the Old Master it was still a huge taboo for any servant.
Fortunately, the Young Master still trusted her and knew that she was just being concerned. Otherwise, she would’ve left immediately.
“Then… I’ll serve you dinner now?” Sister Xiu asked carefully.
Ji Shiting nodded.
After dinner, the man returned to the study.
After finishing some work, he leaned back against his seat and his jaw clenched.
He picked up his phone and made a call.
After a while, the call connected.
“Why are you looking for me?” Gu Yimo said. “I didn’t reveal anything!”
“Don’t worry. It’s a good thing.” Ji Shiting smiled. “Stop all your work and continue investigating what I told you last time.”
“Isn’t there a result already?” Gu Yimo was upset.
“I need to know the reason.” The man lowered his eyes. “Shengge has an uncle called Ye Wenhua. Try to get close to him and gain some information from him. My subordinates tried looking for him but failed. Also, report everything you can about Ye Haocheng and his wife in Yang City to me.”
“…I’m a scientist, not a private detective!” Gu Yimo was furious.
“I think you are more suited to be a private investigator.” Ji Shiting curled his lips. “Once this is done, you don’t have to worry about your research funding anymore.”
“Damn it!” Gu Yimo gritted her teeth. “Fine, I’ll do it!”
In the second bedroom facing the garden.
After night fell, the lights in the garden gradually lit up. There was a thin layer of mist, making it look dreamy.
Ye Shengge stood by the window in a daze after showering.
She had run away after throwing a tantrum, so Ji Shiting shouldn’t have ignored her no matter what.
Ye Shengge was very nervous, and as time passed, her anxiety intensified.
It wasn’t early anymore, and Ji Shiting should be asleep soon. She walked out, went to the master bedroom and twisted the doorknob.
However, it didn’t open!
Ye Shengge immediately knocked on the door.
This man still had the cheek to say that this was her room, yet he locked her outside after a fight?
She was still feeling aggrieved when she heard a deep voice.
