Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School - Chapter 158 - Leng Shaoting Is in the Middle of A Task
Chapter 158 Leng Shaoting Is in the Middle of A Task
Gu Ning probably wouldn’t believe it herself unless she had seen it. She was almost sure that the ancient objects in the cave must have belonged to the prefect Liujiang.
Meanwhile, Gu Ning’s phone rang. The caller was Qin Yifan. Gu Ning wasn’t willing to pick it up.
Because of Qin Yiqing, she wasn’t in a good mood right now, and she was a little mad at Qin Yifan too. However, after a while, she thought that it was better to make it clear, so she answered, “Hi!”
Once Qin Yifan heard Gu Ning’s voice, he apologized, “Gu Ning, I’m so sorry about what my older sister did to you. Please accept my apologies.”
“Well, apologies accepted.” Gu Ning wouldn’t forgive Qin Yiqing so easily, but she didn’t think she would meet her often in the future. There was no need to ruin her connection with Qin Yifan.
“Thanks,” Qin Yifan replied. “It’s my fault actually. If not because I…”
At that moment, Qin Yifan stopped all of a sudden. He felt anxious and hesitated to tell Gu Ning that he liked her. He was afraid to be rejected. He was worried that he couldn’t be her friend any longer, but if he didn’t say it right now after what had happened, he probably wouldn’t ever have a better chance. Also it was inappropriate to tell the girl his feelings on the phone.
Thinking of that, Qin Yifan planned to meet Gu Ning at first. “Um, Gu Ning, I have something to tell you. Could you please come out and meet me for a while?”
“Just tell me on the phone. It’s fine.” Gu Ning almost knew what Qin Yifan was going to tell her. Although she didn’t want him to do it, she couldn’t stop him.
Since Gu Ning said so, Qin Yifan had to continue in the phone.
“I’m sorry for what has happened to you. If I hadn’t told my older sister that I like you, it wouldn’t have happened. My older sister is bossy, and likes to be involved in everything, but I’m different. I’m strong at work, but not pushy, nor snobbish in my life. And, most importantly, I really like you Gu Ning. Can you give me a chance?”
Indeed, Gu Ning guessed correctly. Qin Yifan was going to tell her that he liked her, but Gu Ning felt nothing. She probably didn’t feel happy because Qin Yifan was not the man she liked.
“Sorry, I think it’s better for us to be friends,” Gu Ning said. It was a no.
It wasn’t a surprising answer, but it was still hard for Qin Yifan to accept it. He felt as if someone stabbed a knife into his chest. He was in great pain now. Probably because that was how it felt when he was heartbroken.
Gu Ning was the first girl he felt had touched his heart, so he didn’t want to give up right away. He continued to ask, “Really? Can’t you give me a chance? If I’ve done anything that you dislike, please tell me. I’ll change.”
“Nothing,” Gu Ning said without hesitation. “It has nothing to do with your appearance, or your background. I just don’t have feelings with you. I’m sorry.”
Qin Yifan couldn’t help but step backwards several times. Gu Ning didn’t even give him a chance.
Besides, she felt nothing for him.
Although Qin Yifan was terribly sad, he didn’t want to annoy Gu Ning. Since Gu Ning had said it plainly, he also didn’t want to bother her any longer.
“Well, then, um, bye.” Qin Yifan hung up at once. He felt empty and lost now.
Gu Ning sat gazing at the screen of her computer. She had mixed emotions. She knew that Qin Yifan would be unhappy that she had rejected him, but she couldn’t comfort him. If she did so, she was giving the man hope. Gu Ning chose to be cruel to some extent.
She never lost confidence at men, even though a man had betrayed her in her previous incarnation. However, she truly treated Qin Yifan as her friend only.
Gu Ning had no idea what kind of man was her type. Thinking of that question, Gu Ning was unconsciously involved in her illusion. Suddenly, Leng Shaoting’s face appeared in her mind. Gu Ning was astonished. She immediately got her mind back, but she couldn’t stop her heart from beating so fast.
Why? Was Leng Shaoting her type? Although she wasn’t sure, she actually had quite a good impression of him.
Gu Ning wasn’t a chicken in a relationship. Since she wasn’t certain, she decided to figure it out. She hated suspicion. Of course, if she fell in love with someone who disliked her, she wouldn’t force him to love her.
Gu Ning took out her phone calling Leng Shaoting, but his phone was turned off. Gu Ning knew that Leng Shaoting must be in the middle of a task. She was right. Leng Shaoting was indeed in the middle of a task.
It was sunset. The sky was still aglow. In a mountain area far away from the city, a black Hummer was moving fast in an unstoppable way on an uneven dirt road. Its engine was roaring along the way.
In the car, Xu Jinchen sat in the driver’s seat while Leng Shaoting was in the passenger seat. There were also two young men in the back seats.
“Boss, the road is too uneven to drive on! The car will break apart soon,” Xu Jinchen complained. He was a car lover, and couldn’t tolerate it.
Leng Shaoting ignored him, but fixed his eyes at the GPS in his hands.
“Boss, is the task more important than the car?” a man who was sitting in the back teased. He was named Xin Bei and was ranked fifth in the Red Flame.
Xu Jinchen was ranked tenth in his team. Except for Leng Shaoting, who became their boss because of his outstanding ability, the rest all ranked according to their ages. They were all the most elite soldiers from the military. They were young people who had gotten great achievements and had official positions.
“Ha-ha, you know Jinchen loves cars so much. He would rather suffer for his car!” another man joked. He was Si Ming, who ranked seventh in their team.
“I think our boss does this on purpose. He knows I’ll suffer in such a situation, but he forced me to do so. I’m not necessary for this task by the way!” Xu Jinchen continued to complain.
“Why would boss do it on purpose?” Xin Bei asked.
However, before Xu Jinchen could open his mouth, Leng Shaoting said coldly, “Stop the car in the woods, then let’s go up to the mountain.”
Once Leng Shaoting gave an order, no one dared to complain. They all wore a serious face.
Xu Jinchen immediately turned the steering wheel driving the car into the woods, and stopped it in an unnoticeable place. They swiftly got out of the car.
