Ms. Doctor Divine - Chapter 331 - The Strategist
Chapter 331: The Strategist
At the Study.
Lord Ling was silent for a long time, as his eyes sparkled lethally. Then he turned to Xie Yan in front of him.
Xie Yan saw Lord Ling’s eyes, got startled subconsciously and asked discreetly, “What is it, Lord Ling?”
He was Lord Ling’s strategist who had made all kinds of plans for him. He was taking a huge risk, as he received superior power and money.
For example, the way Lord Ling looked at him now was reminding him that something was wrong, but he could not figure out what was wrong, thus feeling rather unfathomed.
He threw the letter Xie Yan at Xie Yan and snapped. “What is it? Just see what you have found out!”
“Destiny Monk said that the Phoenix Girl is going through the reincarnation and the one who gets her gets the throne. What an important matter that is! Why didn’t you look into it! You said that the Elder Miss is ugly, tanned and stupid, and that she has a terrible personality and morality. But when I met her today, I found that she was totally outstanding, even more outstanding than the Second Lady!”
Faced with what Lord Ling asked, Xie Yan was shocked.
When Destiny Monk came to the conclusion, he saw the ladies from the Gu Mansion and Elder Miss was exactly like what he described earlier. As for the other ladies… they were simply lazy and idling around. Only the Second Lady looked like someone who might be the reincarnation of Phoenix Lady. That was why he decided that the Second Lady was the one. That was why he made the proposal.
However, now Lord Ling said that the Elder Miss looked outstanding… could he have made a mistake? That could not be possible! Could someone change so fast within such a short period of time? If that was the case, then they might all have made a mistake – maybe Elder Miss was the real Phoenix Girl!
If that was the case… there was still time to save the matter.
Even if he made the mistake in this case, as the strategist-in-chief, he was not at all stupid. In order to maintain his own position, he had to show that he had a back-up plan.
Xie Yan said instantly, coming up with a method to prevent the potential harm, “Lord, we still have time to save the matter.
“The Gu Mansion is just a minor family, and the Gu Family don’t know anything about Phoenix Girl, as far as I can tell. You are a noble man, and you can marry both of the girls.” As far as he could see, it was such an easy problem to solve.
Hearing what Xie Yan said, Lord Ling became slightly less angry.
He did not hold that dark expression any more. Normally, he should have given up Xie Yan after this incident. He had been simply too careless! However… It seemed that this man could be kept. It was just that he needed more than one strategist around him.
He was going to achieve big things in the future, so he needed many staff around him.
Seeing Lord Ling in obsession, Xie Yan was afraid that Lord Ling would fire him. So he added, “Lord, when I saw that Elder Miss a while ago, she was indeed chubby and ugly. I had not expected that she could have such a tremendous change within such a short period of time. That made me think that it is probably because she is the real Phoenix Girl so such changes happen to her!”
Hearing these words, Lord Ling looked at Xie Yan completatively.
Maybe that was true – the Phoenix Girl should be special and he saw nothing special about Gu Ruxue at all.
