Chapter 728: It Is Not Contradictory to Look for Them and Wait at the Same Time
Tang Zui was really worried about Gu Mian. He was scared that he would never get to see her again!
“Since he’s seeking revenge, he’ll definitely contact us. Let’s just wait!” After Long Sijue said that, he turned and strode away from the market.
Tang Zui and Si Mancheng immediately followed him. They knew that what Long Sijue said made sense. But what if the other party did not end up contacting them? What if something had already happened to Su Qianxun and Gu Mian?
But none of them dared to voice their thoughts.
Ye Gu followed the three of them closely. He was frowning intensely. He really wished that he could send out all his men to look for Su Qianxun immediately. But he neither had the right nor the power to do so.
This was the first time Ye Gu hated himself so much for being powerless!
What was the point in being good at fighting? Because he had no power, he was unable to protect the one he wanted to safeguard the most.
Now that she was in danger, he still had no choice but to wait for his superior’s orders.
Ye Gu really felt as though he was totally losing control of his emotions. He had already accepted the fact that Su Qianxun belonged to the young master. As long as she was safe and sound, he was willing to stay by her and the young master’s side and safeguard them silently.
But now… she was in danger. And it was no ordinary danger.
He recalled the way she smiled brightly amid the candlelight that night. She asked him to make a wish, and personally put on a sports watch for him. She did not exactly spend much time choosing it, but he liked it very much.
That night, he made a wish that… she would be safe and sound all her life.
Long Sijue said that he would wait, and he waited without doing anything for real. He did not send any men to look for the young women or investigate who was behind the kidnapping. He returned to Long Garden and continued participating in the Chinese New Year celebration before returning to Jin Garden…
It was as though Su Qianxun had not gone missing at all.
Tang Zui and Si Mancheng did not know what he had up his sleeve. Si Mancheng was rather anxious, and Tang Zui could not take it at all.
“Jue, what are you trying to do? Why aren’t you sending out any men to look for the two of them? What if something bad really happens to then?” Tang Zui could no longer hold it in.
“Since you’re so worried about Gu Mian, why don’t you live a good life with her?” Long Sijue took a cigarette and lit it.
“I… Who says that I’m worried about her. I’m worried about Qianxun. Wouldn’t you be sad if something bad happens to her?” Tang Zui was not willing to admit that he was tremendously worried about Gu Mian.
Long Sijue remained silent.
“If you’re not willing to send out any men, I’ll do it! I’ll go to look for them with a few men now!” Tang Zui could not bear to wait anymore. He turned and left with a group of men.
Ye Gu wanted to be willful like Tang Zui and go to look for Su Qianxun with a group of men too, but once again, he was restricted by the role he played and his identity. He had never hated who he was as much as he did right now when he thought about how Su Qianxun’s fate was up in the air.
“Jue, do send out some men to look for them. What if something really happens?” Si Mancheng tried to talk some sense into him.
“We’ll wait for a while more.” Long Sijue slowly exhaled, and his profound gaze was hidden behind the cloud of smoke.
“Young master, it is not contradictory to look for them and wait at the same time.” Ye Gu truly could not hold his emotions back anymore.
Si Mancheng glanced at Ye Gu in shock. He then quickly looked at Long Sijue and said, “I think that what Ye Gu said makes sense too. It’s not contradictory to look for them and wait at the same time.”
“I don’t care if Tang Zui has gone to look for Gu Mian, but none of my men are allowed to look for Su Qianxun!” Long Sijue reached out and extinguished his cigarette. He then rose and left the study room.
Lan Qingcheng was tremendously happy when she heard that Su Qianxun had been kidnapped. When she received news that Long Sijue was not in a hurry to look for her and was merely staying in Jin Garden calmly, she became even happier. ‘As it seems, Long Sijue doesn’t care about Su Qianxun that much.’
