Their bodies were brought back afterwards and buried together. So if this woman was Leng Yuanhan’s wife, Leng Shaoting’s mother, who was the woman who was buried with Leng Yunhan?
Peng Yunlong still found it was hard to believe.
“Well, how about her age?”
“Women care about their appearances, so it’s very normal that she looks much younger than her real age,” said Gu Ning.
Peng Yunlong nodded. He gave Jing Yunyao a glance filled with mixed emotions, then said to Gu Ning, “Girl Gu, if you’re not busy now, can we have a private talk?”
Gu Ning glanced at Jing Yunyao and found that she stayed calm, so she agreed. “Sure.”
Gu Ning also wanted to know more about Jing Yunyao from Peng Yunlong, and it might help Jing Yunyao remember something.
After that, Gu Ning and Jing Yunyao followed Peng Yunlong and Luo Zhanhua into a private room.
When they walked ahead for a few steps, Peng Zijie and his two secretaries walked outside.
Gu Ning directly ignored Peng Zijie, because he was merely a stranger in her eyes. As long as he stopped scheming against Kouzi, she wouldn’t bother to pay attention to him.
However, Peng Zijie was shocked when he saw that Peng Yunlong and Luo Zhanhua were with Gu Ning.
Although Peng Zijie didn’t know Peng Yunlong, he recognized Luo Zhanhua. Businessmen needed to socialize with officials, so Peng Zijie remembered Luo Zhanhua’s face. In addition, Peng Yunlong’s military uniform clearly showed that he wasn’t an ordinary soldier.
Both Peng Yunlong and Luo Zhanhua were important figures, but they were with Gu Ning now.
Even though Gu Ning had connections, he thought that she only had connections in business. So it came as a surprise that she had friends in politics too.
It was totally different.
“Wow, Gu Ning is able to have a relationship with them!” exclaimed one of Peng Zijie’s secretaries.
“No wonder she’s so confident,” said another secretary.
Peng Zijie had to change his mind and report it to his supervisor first. He didn’t dare to offend Gu Ning by himself now.
In the private room, Gu Ning, Jing Yunyao, Peng Yunlong, and Luo Zhanhua sat by a table, and aides stayed outside.
“How could you be sure that she’s Yunyao?” Peng Yunlong asked Gu Ning.
“Although she lost her memories, what she has been through left hints and traces in her mind. We went to the Leng family’s old house the other day, and she was able to find the room she used to live in on her own. We also visited the Ye family’s old house, and the same thing happened again,” said Gu Ning. “I don’t think they’re coincidences.”
She couldn’t tell him that both Leng Shaoting and Jing Yunyao were cultivators.
Peng Yunlong nodded. After that, Peng Yunlong looked at Jing Yunyao with a complicated affection in his eyes.
“Then who was the woman who died with Leng Yuanhan?” asked Peng Yunlong with curiosity.
“We don’t know it yet, but I think Leng Yunhan did it to protect Yunyao,” said Gu Ning. It was actually just an excuse that Gu Ning made up to tell Peng Yunlong. The truth was that Jing Jining replaced Jing Yunyao with another woman’s body.
Peng Yunlong agreed with Gu Ning.
“General Peng, do you know anything about Yunyao and Leng Yunhan? Something that left a deep impression on you?” asked Gu Ning.
Peng Yunlong understood Gu Ning’s purpose and nodded. “Yes, a little.”
“Can you share it with us?” said Gu Ning.
When Jing Yunyao visited the Ye family’s old house, she remembered that she had rescued Ye Zhengye once before.
“Sure. To be honest, I met Yunyao before Leng Yunhan did,” said Peng Yunlong.
Thinking of the old stories, Peng Yunlong had more complicated emotions.
Gu Ning and Jing Yunyao were a little surprised, but didn’t stop Peng Yunlong from telling the old stories.
Peng Yunlong said, “Well, Yunyao and I met each other during a fight. I was 21 that year, and it was my third year in the military. I went back home that day for the New Year Festival and witnessed a robbery right after I got off the train at the train station in the capital. I chased the robber without hesitation, and the robber suddenly squeezed the bag he robbed into a girl’s hand when I had almost caught him, and the girl was Yunyao.”
“Because the robber told Yunyao to run when he squeezed the bag into her hand, I thought that they were in the same group, then I began to attack Yunyao. To my surprise, Yunyao was better than me at fighting and easily beat me down in seconds. She then dumped the bag to me and caught the robber. I didn’t know that she was innocent until the robber admitted to the crime. I apologized to Yunyao, but we had a bad first impression of each other. Unexpectedly, Yunyao was my younger cousin’s friend, and we got familiar afterwards, but we never got along with one another.”
