Feng Qingtian’s heart ached when he thought that Gu Yunjing might’ve touched Gu Bailu.
He wandered around the garden for a whole day.
Feeling upset, he smashed yet another pillar.
Yan Anchun couldn’t watch any longer, and pulled him into a room before she locked it.
According to the servants, the new princess used herself to calm the lord down.
They didn’t leave the room for a long time.
Qin Shou didn’t return until more than half a day later. He had truly lost a lot in asking Shao Zun for a favor.
“How did it go?” asked Feng Qingtian.
“I really couldn’t decide whether or not to accept his terms. Shao Zun somehow found out that you discovered treasure in the ocean, and he wants you to give it to him…”
The Earthly Residence was indeed a place that could get things done, but it was a bottomless hole as well. They wouldn’t accept assignments with unsatisfactory terms.
“Accept the terms, and tell him to get Gu Yunjing out right now!” Feng Qingtian accepted the terms without thinking.
Now that his lord had spoken, Qin Shou had no choice except to visit the Earthly Residence again.
Having received such a lucrative assignment, Su Shenfan decided to personally take action.
Thus, he visited the Gu house at noon.
The people who passed by the Gu house were all shocked to see him.
It was Su Shenfan, Shao Zun of the Earthly Residence, whom even ghosts feared.
Such a horrifying man had come to see the lady of the Gu family when she had just gotten a new husband.
Another good drama was about to unfold.
As those people shouted at one another, more people were drawn to the Gu house.
They had yet to see the new husband of the garbage of the Gu family, but it was said that he was an exceptionally handsome man.
They wondered why this man was blind enough to pick up a secondhand product.
Very soon, everybody saw Su Shenfan enter the Gu house.
They were impressed by Gu Bailu’s courage to invite in a man as horrible as Su Shenfan.
It was the second time that Gu Bailu was meeting this weirdly charismatic man. He was still wearing a silver mask that covered a quarter of his face, but what was uncovered was stunning and immaculate.
Handsome men weren’t rare, but handsome men who concealed themselves partially had an unusual air about them.
“May I know why you’re visiting me in person, Shao Zun?” Gu Bailu asked directly.
He wasn’t someone who would visit a random stranger.
“I’m here to present gifts to Shao Di since I’m told that he got married. We’ve known each other for years, after all.”
Su Shenfan narrowed his eyes and gave a foreboding smile. Though he was pretty, he had the air of a viper.
“It is indeed true that no secrets can be hidden from Shao Zun. I’ll ask Beauty Gu to come out.”
The man was obviously here for Gu Yunjing, and Gu Bailu didn’t think that it was her place to meddle.
Gu Bailu didn’t return after she left, and Gu Yunjing soon arrived.
“What do you want?” Gu Yunjing was quite impatient, as Su Shenfan’s appearance never meant anything good.
“Someone wants me to get you out of the Gu house. Do you want to walk away yourself, or do you want me to give you a hand?” Su Shenfan was quite straightforward.
“Who is it?” Gu Yunjing asked.
