C14 It Was Him

I don't know where they heard it, but I don't doubt the truth of their words at all, as if I had seen it with my own eyes.

People like them had their own ways of finding out the latest gossip in the shortest time possible.

Listening to them talking at the same time, my mind was a little muddled.

"Yi, she, isn't she not accompanying the night and only drinking together …"

I thought back to that young face. Yi was usually very heavily made-up, but I remember hearing her say that she was only in her early twenties. She was the same age as a flower.

Even though she signed for a long period of time, I knew that she would only accompany the wine and not the night. She and I were often assigned to the same box. Although I was older than her, she knew a lot more about dealing with guests than I did. She helped me with the alcohol, and as time went by, I got to know her better.

I still remember her telling me that she didn't care as long as she could get more tips, no matter how many customers fumbled, but no matter how much money she had, she couldn't do it. That was the bottom line she had set for herself.

I remember her saying, with a sad look on her face, that she was going to save her most precious things for the one she loved most, and that no matter how dirty she was on the outside, she was going to keep at least her inner purity so that she would have the right to say love later.

I remember being deeply moved by the firm expression on her face, and ashamed of the disdain I felt for her from the bottom of my heart.

"Sigh, not accompanying the night. That would only mean saying it to the ordinary customers. How could we dare to offend a customer of Fifth Master Qin's level? Who dared to say anything back at him? "Sigh, Yi is really unlucky to have met with such a big shot. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that it's as easy as killing an ant when he squashes us to death."

"Speaking of which, Xiaofang, you're lucky." "Yesterday, you and Yi were in the same room. If you accompanied Fifth Master Qin, then …"

The speaker stopped, but I knew what she was going to say.

At this moment, I suddenly remembered what Master Gu said this morning. It seems like he really wasn't trying to scare me. If he really said something like that and I was sold to Fifth Master Qin by Ms Lan, what would happen to me …

I felt scared just thinking about it, and cold sweat broke out all over my body. But when I think of Yi and feel that she is my scapegoat, I feel an indescribable pain in my heart.

"Hey, Xiaofang, I think you shouldn't think too much about it. Everyone has their own destiny. Even though Yi has suffered greatly, I heard from others that even though Fifth Master Qin is ruthless, he is generous. I think that Yi won't have to worry about him for the rest of her life. "This can be considered a blessing in disguise."

It must be because someone saw that my expression wasn't right, but there was someone who kindly opened his mouth to console me.

To be honest, I don't know what I was thinking in my heart. I just felt confused, thinking back to yesterday when Yi was drinking with me, and then suddenly thinking back to what Master Gu said to me in the morning.

"Hey, Xiaofang, tell us, the Master Gu you accompanied yesterday is a super handsome guy. You're so lucky. Tell us quickly, is he really that handsome?"

"Yes, yes. Of all the guests that have come to Chenhuan up till now, he is the most handsome."

"Yeah, Xiaofang, I heard that you followed him out last night. Do you have that thing? Tell us quickly, how is his martial arts?"

"Yeah, he should be very generous. He gave you a lot of tips."

"Aiya, for someone like him, even if he doesn't give me money to work with him, I would still be willing."


Everyone started gossiping about Master Gu. No one cared about Yi anymore. I heard them mention Master Gu and subconsciously didn't want to talk about him.

I said, "No, you heard wrong. I didn't go out with him yesterday."

"Aiyo, who would believe me? If you don't want to say it, then don't want to say it. What's so great about that..."

They obviously thought I was being arrogant, and all sorts of bad things came out.

Ignoring the gossip of the others, I tried to suppress my thoughts and focus on my makeup until I could barely recognize myself in the mirror.

Actually, ever since I knew that Xu Zhe and Ms Lan had schemed against me, and then stepped into the Chenhuan, I couldn't help but feel a little nervous. Don't look at how I ignored Ms Lan and her confrontation. In fact, I still felt a little guilty.

After all, Ms Lan is the supervisor here. If she were to secretly use some tactics, it would be hard for me to guard against her.

Now, after hearing about Yi's matter, my heart is even more uncertain.

However, the situation now is that other than forcing myself to fulfill the contract, I have no other better way.

While I was waiting for the guests in the lounge, I felt very uneasy. After taking a few antidotes, I felt slightly more at ease.

Very quickly, Ms Lan came to the resting room to call for someone.

This meant that a guest had come to visit.

When Ms Lan came in, her gaze swept across my face, but she didn't stop. She only called for me to follow her, as if I was going about my business. I didn't know what she was up to.

When one was under a roof, one had no choice but to lower their head.

At this moment, she is my supervisor, and the job she arranged for me, if there is no normal reason, I cannot decline, otherwise my fate will definitely not be good.

Since I had already decided to put up with it, I naturally couldn't easily start a fight with her. I silently followed behind Ms Lan.

A girl called Xiao Yao followed me.

After a while, they arrived at box one of the royal household.

At this moment, I have already felt some shadow towards this room. The room that Yi and I entered yesterday was precisely this room.

As the box got closer and closer, my footsteps became a little hesitant. After all, this is the box that turned me into the bad woman who betrayed her marriage, causing Yi to end up in a miserable state, unable to determine whether she was dead or alive.

"What are you dawdling for? Hurry up and catch up with me."

Ms Lan noticed that I had fallen behind, so she turned around and snappily said something. Seeing that I was hesitating, she continued, "If you don't want to compensate me for the breach of contract, then you should just obediently stay here for the whole week. Don't try anything funny."

As she spoke, she had already arrived at room number 1 in the Imperial Family. Little Yao followed behind her as she stood in front of the private room's door. She turned her head and shot me a glance before mockingly saying, "Big sister, I'll have to trouble you to hurry up. Don't delay my earning of money."

I noticed that there weren't two bodyguards in black standing at the entrance of the room like yesterday. I thought, the person in the room this time shouldn't be Fifth Master Qin.

I hastened my steps. Ms Lan turned her head expressionlessly when she saw me walking towards her. She pushed open the door and walked in first.

It was him!
