Chapter 323 Shao Tianze Returned
Though the Gu enterprise had been renamed to the Shao, there were still Gu Changge’s remaining forces which had not been wiped out.
Those men would have been burning with rage if having heard that the two kids left by Gu Changge went missing.
There would have been rumors inside the Shao enterprise very soon.
The rumors would have been that Shao Tianze didn’t care about his two children left by his dead wife and that he spent all his time on the sister-in-law.
At that time, what would have been the look on Shao Tianze’s face if the rumors had been so nasty?
When thinking of this, Song Yunxuan sneered.
Hearing her sneering, Shao Xue frowned and asked her, “Gu Yi and Miaomiao….”
“They are with me.”
Before Shao Xue had finished her words, she answered actively.
Shao Xue was on her side, so she didn’t hide anything from her.
Moreover, the hatred between Shao Xue and Shao Tianze couldn’t be erased in a day or two. And being honest to Shao Xue benefited Song Yunxuan’s future.
And it also let Shao Xue know where Gu Yi and Miaomiao were.
Knowing that Gu Yi and Miaomiao were in Song Yunxuan’s hands, Shao Xue was relieved, “That’s great.”
As long as Gu Yi and Miaomiao were in a safe place now.
If they had stayed in Shao Family, they would have been killed by Gu Changle sooner or later.
“When you were with Gu Changle, what did she react when she heard that the two kids were missing?”
Shao Xue smiled lightly, “What do you expect her to do? She appears to be caring about the safety of Gu Yi and Miaomiao, but actually, she was over the moon on hearing the news. She was desperate to see Gu Yi and Miaomiao disappear as quickly as possible.”
Having been in the Shao Family for so long, Shao Xue was clear about what problems they had with each other.
Neither could Gu Changle bear the two kids left by Gu Changge nor could she stand Song Yunjia being arrogant and hot in front of her.
Now that the children had been missing, which meant that she had pulled out a thorn in her flesh, she was definitely in a good mood.
Hearing Shao Xue’s words, Song Yunxuan comforted her gently, “Leave her alone. You only need to take good care of yourself in the Shao Family.”
Shao Xue and Xiao Hong were very good partners in Fanxing Magazine. They had been discussing how to run Fanxing Magazine to make it bigger.
It reassured Song Yunxuan.
Now in the Shao Family, Shao Xue could not set foot in Gu Changle’s plan.
Even if she could have set foot in it, she would have had to wait for the right time.
Now, the only thing Shao Xue needed to do was to lead a peaceful life.
“You take good care of yourself. I’ll call you another day.”
Shao Xue nodded with a bit uneasiness, “Miaomiao is easy to coax as she is too young. If Yi does not cooperate, don’t blame him. His temper and character are different from Miaomiao’s.”
“They are just kids. I’ll take good care of them.”
After hearing her guarantee, Shao Xue ended the call trustingly.
In fact, she didn’t know why Song Yunxuan liked these two children this much. In other words, she didn’t know how could the two children be useful to Song Yunxuan.
She had been in Yuncheng for quite a long time, yet she could not see through all the conflicts in Yuncheng.
Now under such circumstances, she only expected Gu Yi and Miaomiao not to be involved in too much.
She only expected that they could live a safe life.
No sooner had Song Yunxuan ended the call from Shao Xue than she received a call from Chu Mochen.
“Are you free tomorrow?”
His voice was as steady as ever, without extra feelings.
Song Yunxuan was a little curious, “You want to invite me to dinner?”
“Yes, when will you be available?”
“Anytime but breakfast time.”
“Then I’ll wait for you at Pujiang this evening.”
Pujiang Sight-seeing Restaurant….
Thinking of the restaurant, she bent her lips slightly.
It could almost be said that she and Chu Mochen remained an odd couple.
The outsiders all knew that she was the quasi-daughter-in-law.
In fact, the relationship between Song Yunxuan and Chu Mochen was not very good. At least they were not as tender and passionate as the time when they were madly in love.
And they did not always meet each other.
If she had been some other guy’s quasi-fiancée, then it would have been quite normal for them to be together every day.
But as a fiancée, she only spent a few days with Chu Mochen every week.
She thought it was time to have a good talk with Chu Mochen.
Even though Chu Mochen had always liked her, her indifference would have eventually drove the man away.
She was going to keep the appointment the next day.
But Shao Tianze was bogged down.
He had been looking for Gu Yi and Miaomiao for a whole week, yet no progress was made.
Roume police had expressed sympathy and apology to him.
And they told him that as the two children were missing out of no reason and no kidnappers called to blackmail him.
Then most likely, the two kids had been killed.
Or, if with some luck, the two kids had been taken away from Roume.
As long as the two kids had been out of Roume, Roume police would not have been able to continue looking for them.
As there were so many countries around the world, looking for them was like fishing a needle in the ocean. It was extremely difficult.
Because of the statement, Shao Tianze booked a plane ticket and flew back on that day.
Shao Xue went to meet the plane. When she saw Shao Tianze, she felt that he had lost so much weight.
“Is there still no news from Yi and Miaomiao?”
“Someone must have planned this, thus I can’t find them.”
“And the Rouman police also could do nothing with it?”
Sitting in the stretch Bentley, Shao Xue asked Shao Tianze while frowning.
Shao Tianze raised his hand to cover his forehead and his eyes were full of tiredness, “Yes.”
Shao Xue turned his gaze in worry, “Then we can only trust to luck.”
“Xue, do you think that Changle did this?”
Shao Xue couldn’t help but be stunned on hearing Shao Tianze’s sudden question.
Then she collected her wits and replied to him, “Brother, how could you suspect elder sister Changle? You have such a good relationship with her, how could she….”
“She is not really related to Gu Changge and so is the two children. Moreover, she is pregnant, so it’s normal for her to harm those two kids as she hates to see them.”
Shao Xue was speechless on hearing that.
She had always known that Shao Tianze loved Gu Changle dearly.
She was thinking that Shao Tianze would never suspect Gu Changle of killing the two kids.
Now it appeared that she was wrong.
And she was way off.
Shao Tianze actually suspected Gu Changle and his private feelings did not affect his judgment.
Shao Xue pursed her lips without talking because she didn’t know what to say.
Though Shao Tianze suspected Gu Changle, yet as a younger sister, Shao Xue could not have made too much comment on Gu Changle in front of her elder brother as long as he still had had feelings for Gu Changle.
Seeing that Shao Xue still remained silent, Shao Tianze turned to look at her, “What do you think? Do you think Changle did it?”
Shao Xue felt embarrassed, “I don’t know.”
Shao Tianze turned away.
Shao Xue’s answer actually meant that she suspected Gu Changle.
Since she felt suspicious, it meant that his guess was right.
He should have a good talk with Gu Changle.
Gu Changle knew that Shao Tianze had returned. She sent Shao Xue to meet the plane for the reason that she was pregnant.
She drank some tonic at home, waiting for Shao Tianze to return.
Since Shao Tianze suspected her, he would probably question her when he returned.
So she should be prepared for the questions he might ask then.
She was not sure about Shao Tianze’s attitude towards her. She just betted that Shao Tianze still liked her.
If Shao Tianze had liked her at heart, he should have believed her.
She was waiting in the living room.
Sure enough, it wasn’t long before she had heard servants walking inside.
Gu Changle slightly raised her eyes, glancing at the servant, “Yes?”
“Mr. Shao has returned.”
Adjusting the expression on her face, Gu Changle stood up to wait for Shao Tianze’s arrival.
As soon as Shao Tianze entered the living room, Gu Changle pretended to be surprised and quickly stepped over to him, “Welcome home, Tianze.”
Though Shao Tianze had only been out for a week this time, it was obvious that he lost some weight.
Gu Changle wore a surprised look outside while feeling a little shocked inside.
Losing this much weight indicated that the search of Gu Yi and Miaomiao these days had worn him out.
Thinking of how well he treated Gu Yi and Miaomiao, she felt her heart was burning with wrath.
Gu Changge had already been dead and she was pregnant with his baby.
Did he really need to exert this much effort?
She gnashed her teeth and asked him hastily, “You’ve just returned, so please be seated and have some rest. I had the chicken soup cooked.”
Shao Tianze wore a poker face.
After having sat down, a servant brought over the chicken soup.
Seeing that Shao Tianze wasn’t moving, Gu Changle took the small spoon in the fine soup pot, scooped a spoonful of chicken soup and planned to feed him.
Yet Shao Tianze raised his hand to stop her.
Being stopped by Shao Tianze, Gu Changle felt unhappy at once and the tenderness and happiness in her eyes were gone, “What’s wrong?”
“I’ve just come back. Don’t you have any questions?”
“Is it about Gu Yi and Miaomiao?”
Shao Tianze looked at her, “Yes. You are their aunt. Don’t you worry at all?”
Gu Changle realized that Shao Tianze was going to come to the topic.
She put the spoon back into the soup pot, took her hands back and clasped them. Then she took a breath as if she was trying to calm down.
“I’m their aunt and I care about their safety. But I assume that you would tell me about it if there’s any news,” she said, looking at Shao Tianze with worry and anxiety in her eyes, “Now that you didn’t tell me anything when you returned, so undoubtedly, there isn’t any news of them, is it?”
Gu Changle responded quite well.
Shao Tianze remained silent for a while.
After having handed the coat to a servant, Shao Xue, who came back together, sat on the sofa in the living room and watched their talk.
Gu Changle also brought Shao Xue along to curry favor with him.
“I’ve been worried about Yi and Miaomiao every day and night and I couldn’t fall asleep several nights because I feared that something might happen to the two kids left by my elder sister. I’m their aunt and I’m so worried that I couldn’t fall asleep. If you don’t buy it, you can ask Shao Xue.”
She turned to look at Shao Xue.
Shao Tianze also fixed his eyes upon Shao Xue.
Shao Xue lowered her eyes.
Gu Changle was really hard to cope with.
If she had simply lied, then that would have been fine. But she also dragged in a witness.
Now she was dragged down, she would have naturally said that Gu Changle worried about Gu Yi and Miaomiao very much if having been asked by Shao Tianze so that she could avoid a heated argument with Gu Changle.
Shao Xue was annoyed at Gu Changle’s small trick.
Yet Shao Tianze did not ask Shao Xue about this.
He knew well in his heart that now the mistress of the Shao Family was Gu Changle.
Gu Changle said that she was worried and the reason that she dragged Shao Xue into this was that she wanted Shao Xue to lie too.
There was no need to ask Shao Xue.
