Gu Xijiu's wrinkled mouth pressed onto the lady's smooth skin and left some teeth marks on her face! The lady was stunned and quickly asked, "Old… Old master, could you move a little…?"
Long Fan could not help but laugh as he folded his arms in front of his chest. The lady struggled for some time under Gu Xijiu and was finally able to sit up after some effort. She then helped Gu Xijiu to get up too. "My apologies old master, I was careless… Please forgive me."
The lady was not very happy with Gu Xijiu, but she still apologized as she brought her back up to her chair. Gu Xijiu could not use any of her strength. Hence, she had placed her full weight on the lady earlier on. The lady was sweating profusely by the time she had brought Gu Xijiu back to her chair.
"Father, are you alright?" Long Fan walked over and checked Gu Xijiu's pulse as though he was sincerely worried about her. Long Fan was happy to discover that Gu Xijiu's acupoints were still sealed and the poison was still in her body.
In fact, Long Fan was still testing her as he wanted to know whether it was Di Fuyi who had sent the lady. If she were, she would have certainly pretended to fall so that she could unseal Gu Xijiu's acupoints. However, he was glad that he was mistaken.
He then sighed silently and scolded the lady. The lady apologized and poured another cup of tea for Gu Xijiu. She then massaged Gu Xijiu after serving her the cup of tea.
The lady was quite smart and understanding and behaved as though she came from a low-income family. Long Fan seemed to have already accepted her in his heart.
His subordinates had investigated her earlier and found out that the lady was, in fact, an orphan, and her father was also a lute player. He had passed away a year ago after passing all his skills to his daughter, and the lady earned her living by playing the lute. However, a wealthy man had fallen in love with her a few days ago and insisted on marrying her as his mistress. Unfortunately, he was so old and fat, and so the lady declined. Sadly, she understood that she was too weak to fight against the rich man. Hence, she tried to delay him. Therefore, it was not surprising for her to seek help from Long Fan.
Girls always liked handsome men. In fact, the lady liked him as well. Though she was massaging Gu Xijiu, her eyes occasionally shifted to Long Fan, and she quickly looked away shyly when her gaze met his.
Long Fan could finally let out a sigh of relief after running a series of tests. His gaze returned to the room opposite them, and he saw that Di Fuyi and the rest were almost done eating their food. When was his master going to make his move?
He could not help but sigh silently as he recalled that Mo Zhao was often too careful and doubtful. He then looked at Gu Xijiu and saw her dull expression as she stared out the window while enjoying the lady's massage treatment.
Gu Xijiu felt that she could have won an award for best actress! Though she was anxious and her blood was boiling, she could still pretend that she was calm. She seriously could not believe herself! However, she realized that there was still room for her to improve as compared to the one who was massaging her.
"She" was the real actor! He was an expert! It was Di Fuyi!
The lady who looked weak and had a crush on Long Fan was, in fact, Di Fuyi!
