85 Back Up

Guo Miao stood by the window and watched the dragonfly-shaped drone fly back to her window. She closed the window.

This time, because of the incident at Fuyue Restaurant, she lost her ranking and prize money in the English competition.

Although the bonus was nothing to Guo Miao now, it was a different story as she was compromising Guo Fu and Fuyue Restaurant.

If it wasn’t for Guo Lin’s actions, her father wouldn’t have been so frightened today. She would definitely blame Guo Lin for this.

Knock knock.

Someone knocked on the door. Guo Fu was standing outside with a glass of milk in his hand.

“Dad, why are you still awake? It’s so late.” Guo Miao took the milk from Guo Fu’s hands and invited him into the house.

“Let me see.” Guo Fu rubbed his hands as if he was trying to organize his words. He had never been a man of words. When he didn’t know what to say, he would rub his hands to ease the discomfort.

“Dad, if you have something to say, just say it. We can be direct with each other,” Guo Miao said.

“Daughter, I want to ask about the people who came today. Are they your friends?”

Guo Miao knew her father was going to ask this. “They’re my friends, Dad. Don’t worry. They’re friends I made in the capital, and some of them are Sheng Guang’s friends. I’ve cured his eyes. He’ll help me if I have any problems.”

Guo Fu nodded at the mention of Beijing and Sheng Guang. He knew Sheng Guang. Someone who could live in such a big villa in Haicheng was definitely not the average joe. It would not be a bad thing if he could help Guo Miao.

“What about the people from the military?” Guo Fu hesitated.

“Sheng Guang knows some people from the military,” Guo Miao said immediately, “They just happened to be free today, so they came to help me.”

Guo Fu nodded. Although the two men had high military ranks, they still looked kind. He didn’t expect them to be so enthusiastic.

Guo Miao consoled her father for a while more before persuading him to go back to sleep. Tomorrow was the tender conference, so Guo Fu should go to bed early and prepare for it.

After comforting both Guo Fu and Xuxu, Guo Miao returned to her room. She was exhausted after a long day and soon fell asleep.

The night had just begun in Beijing.

Over spring, Wendu was extremely busy with projects. He finally returned to Beijing to rest for a few days. He called Su Yu and Tong Pei out to have a few drinks.

However, Tong Pei didn’t seem to be in a good mood today.

“What’s the matter, Brother Pei? Is there something bothering you today?” Wendu asked.

Whiskey and Coke were mixed together, and the smell of alcohol and soda water spread in the air.

“It’s nothing much. Something happened to that little girl’s family in Haicheng. I don’t know if it’s been resolved,” Su Yu said.

Su Yu’s cousin was Major Lin Ting, another bigwig in the Haicheng military. Lin Ting and Tong Pei were friends who had grown up together in Haicheng.

Just as Wendu was about to ask what was going on, Su Yu’s phone rang, and Lin Ting’s voice was heard.

“Su Yu, is Brother Pei with you?”

“We’re all drinking. How was it, Brother Ting?” Tong Pei said.

Lin Yan said, “That little girl settled the matter herself. We made a wasted trip. However, that child is indeed not simple. How did you two meet?”

When they heard that Guo Miao had settled the matter, Wendu and Su Yu were a little surprised. They knew that Guo Miao was very powerful, but they didn’t know that she was this influential.

“How was it resolved?” the two of them said in unison.

Lin Ting told Tong Pei what he had seen and heard at the police station today. After listening to him, the rest of them were full of praise.

“I know she could handle it,” Tong Pei took a sip of the whiskey in his glass and slowly said. He understood Guo Miao. She would never rely on others to solve her own problems.

“Then, why did you make me come here for nothing? The deputy chief of Haicheng police station is very talkative. At night, he dragged me and Old Wang to drink. Old Wang almost got chased out of the house by his wife again.”

Colonel Wang used to work with Su Yu’s father in the Beijing military, so he could be considered their elder. Colonel Wang’s wife was a powerful character and never let him drink.

“I’ll apologize to Uncle Wang later. Thank you, Brother Ting,” Tong Pei put down the wine glass and slowly said.

“Who is that little girl? How can she make our Brother Pei worry so much? He even found a group of people to back her up.”

When this question was raised, Wendu and Su Yu also looked at Tong Pei curiously.

That was right. They had never seen Tong Pei put so much effort into anyone.
