Gu Yusheng wasn't sure if Liang Doukou had really gone home, so he stopped by the company on the way. He brought two bottles of wine with him and pretended he was just swinging by as he rang the bell at the Liang's house.
It was already dark enough that everyone in the Liang's house seemed to be asleep. Only the young nanny, who opened the door for him, was still awake.
Frankly speaking, none of the Liangs thought Liang Doukou was really married to him. Even at this moment, none of them believed it. Except for one time, he had never visited the Liangs. That year, he had gone to greet Mr. Liang on New Year's Eve.
The young nanny was surprised to see him when she opened the door. She was in shock for a while before she asked, "Gu, Mr. Gu, why are you here?"
As Gu Yusheng thought about how to ask if Liang Doukou was there, the young nanny tilted her head and looked behind him. She asked in a surprised tone, "Didn't Miss come back with you?"
This question immediately made Gu Yusheng realize that Liang Doukou had not gone back to her family's home. He didn't enter the house after the young nanny's greeting. He only passed the wine bottles to her. "I just came from my grandpa's house and brought some wine for Mr. Liang on the way home." He paused for a second and continued, "Since everybody is already resting, I won't wake them up. I'll leave now. Thank you."
He walked back to his car and took a seat. Gu Yusheng drove towards his grandpa's house without wasting a second.
Everyone in his grandpa's house had already gone to sleep, but Gu Yusheng had the key to the house. He opened the door and quietly walked around the whole house, but he didn't see Qin Zhi'ai, so he went back to his car again.
She wasn't at his grandpa's house and hadn't gone back to the Liang's house, either. Gu Yusheng lifted his wrist to check the time. It's already two o'clock in the morning. He wondered if she was hiding somewhere or had returned home after getting tired.
Gu Yusheng called the housekeeper first, but she didn't answer the phone. He started the car and drove back to his house.
The light in the house was still on. This time, the housekeeper wasn't waiting at the door. Instead, she was napping on the sofa in the living room. When she heard the door, she jumped and rushed to the door. When she saw it was only Gu Yusheng, she looked a little disappointed. "Do you have any news about Miss?"
Gu Yusheng didn't answer her. He changed into house slippers, walked into the living room, and took a seat at the sofa.
The housekeeper was a little sleepy, but immediately woke up after she learned Gu Yusheng had no news about Qin Zhi'ai. She went to pour a big glass of water for Gu Yusheng and placed it in front of him. She timidly asked, "It's so late. Where could Miss go? She couldn't be in danger, could she?"
Gu Yusheng was really thirsty after running around for a couple of hours. He had lifted the glass to his lips when he heard what the housekeeper was implying. He frowned, not even in mood for water anymore. He slammed the glass back onto the coffee table.
He finally sat down on the sofa, but became anxious again after the housekeeper mentioned danger. He got up in a rage and paced back and forth as he checked the time.
The hour hand on the clock had reached four. The housekeeper could not help thinking out loud, "It's already four o'clock. Why hasn't she come back yet? Where is Miss? Is she safe?"
As she mused, she asked Gu Yusheng, "Mr. Gu, do you think we should call the police?"
