Xie Yan appeared cautious again.
He sized up Gu Chaoyan and said, “I am not the Heirs strategist any more, so why are you sharing this information with me Even if the Heir is doing something right now, and in two months time, he may take the throne, as a man whose life is lingering at the edge of the end, I shouldnt care about this.”
Why did he spend so much effort considering her question.
He felt as if he had been set up too.
Seeing Xie Yans distressed look, Gu Chaoyan could not help but laugh, “Mr.
Xie, what are you so nervous about You are going to spend two more months here at my mansion, with no friends around and nowhere to go, dont you feel bored being in the yard all day long”
“I am just sharing some gossip with you during tea, its only for fun,” Gu Chaoyan said with a smile.
Xie Yan snorted.
He believed none of what Gu Chaoyan said.
He had seen through Gu Chaoyan.
She never shared anything with anyone, unless she was doing it for some purpose.
Only for fun No, he did not buy that.
She must be trying very hard to get some information out of him.
Anyway, the whole thing seemed very complicated.
Why would she be in such a good mood, when Lord Huais Mansion was going to be taken away
He, who had intended to drink the tea, put it down directly.
He should not get himself trapped in this “sweet-tea” talk of hers.
He put down the teacup and said in a hurry, “Lady Chaoyan, my wounds are stinging, I need to take a break now.”
Having said this, he hurried away.
He left so fast as if he were trying to steer away from some monster.
Seeing the way he left, Gu Chaoyan looked confused as she asked Sword One involuntarily, “Sword One, do I look so scary”
She was just sharing some chit chat with Xie Yan, as she found it fun to speak with him, who was clever.
That was why she decided to have a talk with him.
So why did he have such a big reaction
Sword One felt like chuckling, but did not dare to.
Elder Miss was not scary, for sure, but she was getting more and more intimidating and full of tricky ideas.
Xie Yan, a man who had been a strategist for years and a man who was extremely smart, certainly became very frightened of Elder Miss.
He was not an ordinary man.
Those who had nothing in the brain would never find Elder Miss frightening.
However, Sword One did not dare to tell the truth, but said with a smile, “Of course not, Elder Miss, but Mr.
Xie Yan must have some idea going on in his head.”
Gu Chaoyan replied briefly and let the whole thing pass, as she continued to drink her tea.
Xie Yan, by this point, had already gotten back to his own yard.
Frightened, he was worried that Lady Chaoyan would not turn out to be an ordinary lady, after seeing the servants in the mansion and spending some time here.
He desired nothing but to stay protected here!
He did not want to get set up!
As he thought about the whole thing more carefully… she did not look like she was setting him up, instead…
