Chapter 2111: Take Revenge by Herself
When Baili Zongxue saw Gu Ning, she felt a little uneasy.
Gu Ning understood it was because of what had happened yesterday, but she pretended that nothing had ever happened.
They got along with each other as always.
Baili Zongxue wanted to be honest with Gu Ning, but Song Miaoge and Zhang Zikai were with them, so she had to wait.
Chu Peihan was back at school at 5 pm, because she had an appointment with Shi Xiaoyue, so she didnt dine with Mu Ke and Yu Mixi.
Moreover, they were a couple, so she wouldnt bother them when they were on a date.
Besides, she felt a little sad seeing them showing off affection for each other, even if she was happy being single and free for the time being.
Chu Peihan and Shi Xiaoyue agreed to meet in a hot pot restaurant not far from their school.
November was nearly winter, so it was comparatively cold and was very suitable for hot pot.
Chu Peihan arrived first and found a table in a corner.
She had a lot to complain about with Shi Xiaoyue, so it was more convenient to sit in the corner where other people wouldnt hear them.
Once Shi Xiaoyue arrived, Chu Peihan complained about Jin Jingshan in anger.
She hadnt offended Jin Jingshan at all.
She was in trouble simply because Jin Jingshan was jealous of her.
Hearing that, Shi Xiaoyue was also angry.
She even wanted to stop eating and ran to pay Jin Jingshan back right now.
“Peihan, what do you plan to do” Shi Xiaoyue asked.
“Beat her! But I need to do it secretly.
Im not afraid if she knows its me, but I cant let her have evidence and witnesses,” said Chu Peihan.
She squinted her eyes and looked dangerous.
“Sure, Im with you,” said Shi Xiaoyue.
Although she wasnt good at fighting and couldnt compare to Chu Peihans level of martial arts, she was willing to support her best friend.
“Just help me see whether other people notice me at that time,” said Chu Peihan.
“Fine!” Chu Peihan didnt want her to beat Jin Jingshan together, so she was slightly disappointed, but she understood it was more enjoyable to take revenge by herself.
Two days had passed and Jin Jingshan still received no good news.
She called, but was only told that there wasnt a good chance.
Jin Jingshan was convinced.
She thought those men couldnt find Chu Peihan because it was a weekend and Chu Peihan was absent.
The capital was a very large city, so it wasnt easy to find someone, and those men werent detectives after all.
Some people couldnt eat when they were mad, but some could eat more in anger.
Chu Peihan and Shi Xiaoyue were people who ate more when they were angry, so they ate as much food as four people during this meal.
When they went to settle the bill, even the cashier was surprised.
After the meal, they slowly walked back to school, thinking about how to get Jin Jingshan out of the crowd and to a quiet place.
They needed a chance.
Gu Ning and the others also ambled back to school after having a meal.
Gu Ning was still a popular name in the news, so many schoolmates paid special attention to her along the way.
Many also greeted her.
On their way, they met Nie Chenyang.
Once Nie Chenyang saw Gu Ning, he walked over and greeted them.
“Hi, Gu Ning and you all.
Nice to see you.”
“Hi, Senior Nie,” said Gu Ning.
Song Miaoge and the others greeted him too.
“Gu Ning, there is a meeting held by the Chamber of Commerce at 1 pm tomorrow.
Were going to talk about how to support poor students.
Will you come” asked Nie Chenyang.
“If Im free, Ill go.
Ill do whatever I can be present,” said Gu Ning.
She wouldnt hesitate to support poor students.
“Great!” Nie Chenyang replied with a smile.
“See you then.”
After that, Nie Chenyang walked away.
“The Chamber of Commerce is too generous! You are still students yourself.” Song Miaoge complained when Nie Chenyang was gone.
Although it was a good thing to support poor students, she somehow felt it was strange.
“Its not a bad thing.
It can help our country develop and improve our peoples knowledge,” said Gu Ning.
Although they could only support a certain number of poor students instead of all of them, she would do what she could do.
“Gu Ning, how much will you donate” Zhang Zikai asked.
“I dont know yet.
Ill see how much other members will donate.
It cant be too much nor too little.
If I donate too much, itll attract jealousy.
People might say Im doing it as a publicity stunt.
If its too little, others will criticize me for being mean,” said Gu Ning.
She was the focus of public attention now, so she would become a popular topic no matter how much she donated.
Hearing her words, her friends all agreed with her.
It was still early, so they decided to have a walk by the lotus pond.
After walking for a while, Song Miaoge wanted to use the washroom, so she pulled Zhang Zikai to go with her.
Baili Zongxue then had a chance to talk with Gu Ning in private.
“Gu Ning, Im sorry.
I actually tried to form a relationship with you for a purpose at the very beginning.
I wanted to figure out why there is magical power in the medicines from Colaine, but I really have no intention of hurting you.
I sincerely take you as my friend.
Even if I found out the reason, I wouldnt hurt you.
I just wanted to draw you over to my side and gain an advantage…” Baili Zongxue didnt beat about the bush.
She directly apologized and stated her purpose.
“The magical power is thin nowadays, which makes cultivation even harder, so I wanted to know where the magical power in the medicines from Colaine is from.
I wanted to know whether you have magical medicines or tools.
Afterwards, you gave me power crystals so I learned its pure solidified magical power.
I didnt know how its made, but I did know it must be a master who gave you the power crystals.
If I could get a large amount of power crystals, it would be greatly helpful for cultivation, so thats why Im always trying to buy a lot of power crystals from you, or directly find the master behind you and buy them from the master…”
Gu Ning had no plan to bring it up, but Baili Zongxue chose to be honest with her on her own initiative, so Gu Ning felt touched.
I knew from the very beginning that you tried to form a relationship with me for the magical power in the medicines from Colaine, but I also knew that youre kind to me.
Thats the reason why I allowed you to be my friend, or we wouldnt have talked with each other.
I have no interest in playing a cat and mouse game with other people.”
