Chapter 2282: A Place with Thicker Magical Power
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Lin whose husband was the chairman of the Aben Group was struck dumb.
Jesus, she just offended the chairman of the Shengning Organization! Sh*t, she was doomed this time.
After people came back to their senses, they all got excited. Although they weren’t Gu Ning’s fans, Gu Ning was too outstanding and it was hard for them not to admire her.
Without delay, they took out their phones to take pictures of her.
Gu Ning didn’t want to receive so much attention, but she was forced to tell everyone that she was the chairman of the Shengning Organization.
“What did that woman say? She said Miss Gu sold her body for money? It’s ridiculous! Miss Gu’s business group has dozens of billions of yuan in assets. She’s much richer than the Aben Group. It’s impossible that she’ll sell her body for money.”
“Right! So one must be careful with her words.”
“We all know the Shengning Organization is super influential in the capital with powerful connections. The Aben Group can’t afford the result if they mess with the Shengning Organization.”
People kept on talking about it and began to mock Lin.
Although they were ordinary people and were much poorer than her, they were willing to defend Gu Ning and disdained Lin’s behavior.
Hearing their discussion, Lin wasn’t mad, instead she was in complete panic now.
“A-Are you really the chairman of the Shengning Organization?” Lin asked. She actually wasn’t questioning it, but she refused to believe it. She wished it wasn’t the truth and hoped that Gu Ning wasn’t the chairman of the Shengning Organization.
“So? Why do you care about it now? If I’m really the chairman of the Shengning Organization, will you stop arguing with me?” Gu Ning mocked.
She knew Lin would give up once she found out that she was the chairman of the Shengning Organization. Lin didn’t dare to mess with her unless she wanted to live a poor life.
Gu Ning didn’t give her an affirmative answer, but still admitted it, so Lin was scared at once. She immediately apologized to Gu Ning. “Miss Gu, I’m sorry, I didn’t know that you’re the chairman of the Shengning Organization. I didn’t mean to defame you. Please forgive me and let me go this time.”
“I said it’s even and I didn’t want to argue over that, but you wouldn’t stop,” said Gu Ning. If she wanted to punish Lin, she wouldn’t have given Lin a chance to leave just then.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m terribly wrong,” Lin said at once. She only hoped that Gu Ning could let her go now. She didn’t want to drag her family into trouble. If her husband learned that she had angered the chairman of the Shengning Organization, her husband would be mad at her. She was also afraid that Gu Ning might punish the Aben Group.
“If so, I think this drama should be over now. Mrs. Jiang, please bear what I said to you in your mind. Don’t attack a young girl just because she’s beautiful again. Your unkind words can be really harmful,” said Gu Ning and reminded her once more.
“Sure, sure, I won’t do that again.” Mrs. Jiang agreed at once. After Gu Ning taught her the lesson today, she didn’t dare to attack young, beautiful girls again.
“Let’s go now.” Gu Ning was unwilling to stay here any longer, so she pulled Leng Shaoting and walked away. Nobody dared to stop her.
As soon as Gu Ning left, Mrs. Jiang collapsed on the chair. Although she was relieved now, she was still horrified.
People who took photos of Gu Ning posted them on Weibo or WeChat moments, but they only said that they had met Gu Ning by chance. They didn’t say what had happened in the restaurant.
After walking out of the restaurant, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting went to the siheyuan.
The snow wasn’t heavy today, so the ground wasn’t covered by snow. If it grew heavier, the ground would be slippery, which would affect transportation.
Back in the siheyuan, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting chatted with Shangguan Yang for a while, then Gu Ning went to look at the tree vine.
Leng Shaoting didn’t go with Gu Ning, but stayed to play Elephant chess with Shangguan Yang.
In the backyard, there were no outsiders, so the tree vine immediately twisted its body and acted cute before Gu Ning. “My owner, welcome home! I miss you so much.”
“It’s been a few days. It seems you indeed have grown bigger.” Standing in front of the tree vine, Gu Ning found it was bigger now.
“Yes, because the magical power here is thicker. I grew bigger after absorbing it,” said the tree vine happily. It felt quite lucky that it had followed Gu Ning here and was accepted by her.
“In that case, how much time do you think you need to form a human shape?” Gu Ning asked.
“I don’t know, because I need a good opportunity,” said the tree vine. Saying that, it looked a little upset. It couldn’t wait to have a human form and visit the mortals’ world.
“Well, you need to be patient. Don’t worry, you’ll have a human shape one day,” Gu Ning said to comfort it.
“Sure,” said the tree vine. Although it couldn’t wait to form a human shape, it understood that it took time and it needed to be patient.
“In half a month, I’ll bring you to a place where the magical power is thicker,” said Gu Ning. She was talking about the Kunlun Sect’s place.
Because she had some free time now, she needed to cultivate and the best place for cultivation was the Kunlun Sect’s place where the magical power was much thicker than in the siheyuan.
After all, the magical power at the Kunlun Sect’s place was generated by nature, while the magical power in siheyuan was simply gathered by an energy-collecting formation and from the Imperial Palace.
“A place with thicker magical power? Where is it?” Once the tree vine heard about it, it got excited. It felt the magical power here was already much thicker than in the river, but unexpectedly there was a place with even thicker magical power. If it could cultivate with thicker magical power, it could form a human shape in the near future.
Upon thinking of that, the tree vine was full of excitement.
“You’ll know it by then,” said Gu Ning.
Since Gu Ning didn’t want to tell it right now, the tree vine stopped asking. It was always obedient to its owner.
After spending some time with the tree vine, Gu Ning went back to the living room.
In the afternoon, Leng Shaoting called Jing Yunyao and asked her to dine with them in the siheyuan.
