Chapter 349: Endearing Little Emotions (1)
Gu Yu's eyes lingered on her quietly for at least ten seconds. Seemingly annoyed, he eventually asked, "Xu Weilai, do you only have one identity?"
"What?" Xu Weilai looked at him blankly, unable to grasp what he was trying to say.
"Use your brain a little more!"
With that brusque statement, Gu Yu's face turned cold. With that, he got up to leave the bedroom.
Xu Weilai sat on the couch in a daze for a long while until she finally understood what Gu Yu was trying to say!
That's right! She wasn't just the daughter of the Xu family! She was also Gu Yu's wife, Mrs. Gu!
The name Mrs. Gu represented prestige and wealth in itself!
That was why Gu Yu had rejected her request moments ago! It never occured to her that she could enter the country club as a legitimate member on her own. It seemed that she still wasn't used to being Mrs. Gu…
At the thought of Gu Yu's cold expression, Xu Weilai no longer found it terrifying. Instead, she found this man… sweet and sour, but in an endearing way.
She knew that Gu Yu had gone to the study to work, so she didn't want to bother him. Instead, she picked up her cell phone and sent him a text.
Meanwhile, in the study…
The phone chimed. Gu Yu picked it up and clicked the message open.
[Thank you for the pointer, Mr. Gu. Mrs. Gu has found her way.]
Gu Yu smiled. As he saw the words "Mrs. Gu," his icy face gradually thawed and began to glow.
To justify her status as Mrs. Gu, Xu Weilai dressed herself up with class and sophistication.
She wore an extremely expensive mink coat and carried an Hermes bag on her arm. Her finger was adorned with the diamond ring that Gu Yu had gifted her previously. With her eyes covered by a pair of shades, she sashayed down in a pair of shiny heels. Even with such clothing, the most important thing she had on her was Gu Yu's black card!
The moment she flashed the card, the club manager registered her as a member without a second word. He tagged her, Mrs. Gu, as their top VIP!
Xu Weilai had done her research before coming; she knew that the crime scene was the presidential suite. There were two such suites that were both located on the same floor. Naturally, she requested for the other suite and swiped her card to check in.
The manager led her over to her room obsequiously, and told her to notify him if she needed anything. Xu Weilai nodded her head and waved him out.
As soon as she closed the door, Xu Weilai looked around the room and realized that the terraces of both rooms were close enough to each other that she could jump over.
That meant that if she jumped across the terrace, she could enter the room without alerting the police.
Xu Weilai changed from her cumbersome outfit into a tracksuit and sneakers. Then, she pulled out from her bag a coil of rope, her camera, and a few other tools that she had prepared beforehand. She tied one end of the rope to the foot of the bed, and the other end around her waist. After tightening the knot, she climbed over the balustrade, stood still as she took a deep breath, and then jumped!
Landing agilely on the ground, she unknotted the rope from her waist, and walked quietly into the room.
The room was as Wen Xiaoshan had described it. The coffee table was tilted, and there were obvious signs of struggle scattered all over. The mattress was a mess, and Wen Xiaoshan's torn pantyhose was strewn on the floor.
Xu Weilai took out her camera and snapped a few shots of the room.
Suddenly, a sound came from the entrance. It seemed that someone was coming in.
Was it a coincidence that this was happening now?
Xu Weilai narrowed her eyes. She couldn't allow herself to be seen here, or it would alert the perpetrator. Moreover, if the person were Li Huihuang himself, she would be in grave danger. At the moment, she was rather far away from the terrace. She instantly decided to rush towards the closet. She opened it and hid inside.
Then, she heard the door of the room opening followed by the sound of footsteps entering. Whoever the person was could be heard searching the room. Soon enough, the footsteps were headed towards the closet!
Xu Weilai quickly put on her mask, and clenched her fists tightly.
The very next second…
