Chapter 995: The Xia Family’s Secret
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Gu Zheng’s eyes were sharp and filled with strong killing intent. His voice was low and hoarse. “She doesn’t want to be exposed yet. I can cooperate with her, but…”
He was unable to tolerate Qiao Xi being in danger alone, and he was unable to imagine what was happening in the Xia family’s villa at this moment. The feeling of not being able to contact her was truly too torturous.
Xia Cheng returned to the villa and heaved a sigh of relief when he saw Gu Zheng’s car leave through the surveillance cameras. However, he did not know that the car stopped after leaving the surveillance area and Gu Zheng got out of the car.
On the other hand, Madam Xia was afraid of being discovered, so she could only leave the guest room. Perhaps Xia Cheng thought that even if the antidote was effective, it would be impossible for Qiao Xi to wake up so soon, so he did not send anyone to guard Qiao Xi at all.
Qiao Xi quickly unlocked the door and walked toward Xia Yunlou’s room. Madam Xia said that her mother’s belongings were all in Xia Yunlou’s room. If there was enough time, she would go to Xia Cheng’s study to search the place as well. Perhaps there would be pleasant surprises there.
Qiao Xi’s footsteps were very light, and her figure was agile. She avoided a few servants and quickly found Xia Yunlou’s room. Coincidentally, the door was not locked, and the room was very luxurious. It could be seen that the Xia family really doted on their daughter.
After entering, Qiao Xi went straight to the dressing table. There were a few jewelry boxes on it, and the word ‘Qiu’ was engraved on them. These were indeed her mother’s belongings. Did Xia Yunlou not feel ashamed of keeping these expensive belongings?
Qiao Xi found a large leather bag in the room and packed all the jewelry. Suddenly…
Her body suddenly froze. She clearly felt that there was someone behind her, and this person’s aura was very light. It seemed that he was an expert. Her eyes suddenly turned cold as she slowly bent down and took out a dagger from her boot.
Just as she was about to turn around and counterattack, the person grabbed her wrist and the dagger fell to the carpet. She fell into a warm embrace. The familiar smell of sandalwood made her realize something.
The man had been looking at her for a long time. At this moment, his eyes were filled with smiles as he teased, “Mrs. Gu, am I not able to support you? Why are you here to steal from the Xia family?”
Qiao Xi’s face was filled with surprise. This was Xia Yunlou’s room. How did Gu Zheng get in?
Gu Zheng gently pinched her soft cheek and looked at her dotingly. He seemed to like her surprised expression. She looked like a little hamster.

A murmur that carried a trace of huskiness and charm sounded. Qiao Xi abruptly raised her eyes. The man’s slightly cold lips gently kissed her forehead, then he pressed his lips against her ear and chuckled. “Mrs. Gu, you took such a long time to find your way here. And you haven’t entered Xia Cheng’s study yet? Are you sure you don’t need my help?”
Qiao Xi widened her eyes, then frowned. Gu Zheng specially climbed in through the window to look for her just to mock her?
She originally wanted to seek help, but Xia Cheng, that old fox, had blocked all the signals. She could not contact Gu Zheng, so she could only complete the mission alone. If she admitted that she needed Gu Zheng now, wouldn’t it be very embarrassing?
Qiao Xi thought for a moment and said with a firm expression, “There’s no need. You’re so busy! There’s no need for you to attend to such a small matter!”
Seeing that she was unconvinced, the corners of Gu Zheng’s mouth curled up slightly. He asked softly, “You really don’t need my help?”
His voice carried a trace of ridicule. In Qiao Xi’s opinion, this was blatant mockery! She absolutely could not let Gu Zheng have his way, so she abruptly nodded. “Yes! It’s unnecessary!”
Gu Zheng’s long fingers touched his chin, and his voice was filled with joy. “It’s fine if you don’t need me, Mrs. Gu. But I originally wanted to accompany you to find the Xia family’s secret.”

The Xia family’s secret?
Qiao Xi’s eyes immediately widened. Gu Zheng must have some clues since he said that. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have climbed in through the window. It seemed that this was no small matter.
“Mrs. Gu, you must be very interested in this secret because it concerns Madam Xia.”
Qiao Xi was instantly interested. She wanted to investigate Madam Xia not because Madam Xia had saved her, but because she could not find any useful information about Madam Xia with Black Tide’s account. All she could find was that Madam Xia was the daughter of an ordinary family. After she married into the Xia family, everyone in her family passed away. She could not find any clues.
Her identity was very likely faked. All her relatives had died, so no one could investigate her further. Their goal was to hide Madam Xia’s true identity.
