He pulled out the knife and brought the letter towards candle. His face immediately turned black!
He punched the desk right after he finished reading the letter, breaking it under his might. "Please get Master Hu and the eighth prince to gather here at once!"
The servants quickly rushed out to visit them.
Gu Xijiu was hiding somewhere in the dark and flashed an evil smile.
"Rong Yan, how dare you!? You must bear the consequences after setting me up!"
"Theres no way to hide it!"
She had done everything she could, and the only thing she could do next was to wait for the outcome.
Gu Xijiu looked up to the crescent moon in the sky and realized it was already quite late into the night. It was time to go home, thus, she disappeared instantly.
Although the security of the Dukes residence was quite strict, Gu Xijiu was able to teleport in and out of the residence. No one would notice her.
Gu Xietian felt guilty towards Gu Xijiu, and he promised to fulfil all Gu Xijiu's whims and fancies.
For example, he gave her a quiet and luxury residence, with four female companions and four maids. Gu Xijiu was finally able to live a good life.
Leng Xiangyu had been managing the residence for a long time. There must certainly be a few spies being sent to inspect Gu Xijiu.
Of course, Gu Xijiu was not stupid, she knew the spies were hiding amongst her servants.
She was an assassin. Needless to say, she was good at observing people and hunting for spies; it was easy as drinking water to her. One of the spies was caught with just a small trick.
Gu Xijiu punished her severely and did not even bother when she begged for forgiveness. She even sold her away.
Since Gu Xijiu collected enough evidence and brought it up to Gu Xietian, Leng Xiangyu could only watch the servant being kicked out of the residence.
The show which Gu Xijiu designed had successfully scared the other spies away.
Initially, they were not happy with Gu Xijie. Since the incident, they finally knew that the current Gu Xijiu was easy to deal with.
Even Leng Xiangyu was not able to protect them at certain points.
Gu Xijiu knew that murder was not the best way to convert them.
Therefore, she called for a meeting with the other seven people and set a rule in terms of reward and punishment.
She hinted to them how she discovered the spy was that someone had reported it to her, and that she would reward the loyal servant later...
After that, she called them into the house separately and interrogated them. Sometimes, she only kept them in the room and then let them go.
No one knew who got rewarded, so everyone was afraid and were more careful.
Gu Xijiu really kept her promise. She rewarded the one who treated her with loyalty in front of everyone.
In fact, there was more than one spy in there. But since the meeting, the other spies knew who their real master was. They took the courage to come clean to Gu Xijiu and exposed the main objective of Leng Xiangyu.
