Chapter 1408: Missing

Cen Xi got up from the bed and went to the bathroom to wash her face. When the pounding of her heart had calmed down, she raised her head and looked at herself in the mirror.

A thin face, haggard expression and empty-looking eyes… This was not the face of someone out to travel the world. She did not look happy at all.

At the thought of her dream, she could not help but feel uneasy. Her sister did not have a cell phone and she could not reach her, so she had to go to Burma again.

After waiting outside the castle for two days, she met the servant who had taken her to see the Burmese King the other time.

Cen Xi gave the servant a bracelet and asked the servant some questions. The servant told her, “His Majesty treats your sister very well now. He just took her on a holiday the other day. I think your sister may be our King’s wife in the future.”

Hearing this did not ease the anxiety in Cen Xi’s heart. She did not care about her sister’s status. As long as Xiao Ying was safe and healthy, she would feel at ease.

At the Capital.

As Nan Zhi could not threaten others with her status, she could only persuade those who had signed, with her status as Qiao Yanze’s niece.

But they still respected Madam Qiao’s blood letter.

Nan Zi spent an enormous effort, but only managed to get the consent of more than 100 people.

It was a long and exhausting task.

But she would not give up.

She could not.

What surprised Nan Zhi was that after Qiao Yanze went out to travel around the world, she could not contact him. In the beginning, she was able to get through, but then could not get through at all after that.

No one knew where he went.

Nan Zhi thought he did not want to be disturbed, so she did not keep calling him. But after half a month, his phone was still turned off when she called him again.

It was then that she realized something was wrong.

Even if he was traveling around the world, he did not need to turn off his phone for such a long time!

Nan Zhi told Mu Sihan about this.

Mu Sihan knew that she was close to Qiao Yanze and she was anxious when she lost contact with him. Taking her by the shoulders, he pulled her into his arms. “I’ve told Butler Yi to check, there should be news soon.”

Nan Zhi nodded and leaned against Mu Sihan’s broad and firm chest, wrapping her arms around his waist as she said, “Don’t you think it’s strange for my uncle to suddenly want to travel around the world?”

Mu Sihan nodded. “Bo Yan told me that when he went to help your uncle catch Young Master Li, Cen Xi was also there.”

Nan Zhi frowned thoughtfully. With her understanding of her uncle, he must have fallen for Cen Xi. Perhaps because of what had happened with Xiao Ying, he could only suppress his feelings.

“Cen Xi is not in the Capital now. Would Uncle be with her?” Nan Zhi asked.

“If Butler Yi doesn’t find out where your uncle has gone, call Cen Xi again.”

Nan Zhi nodded. “Okay.”

Soon, Butler Yi reported his findings to Nan Zhi.

“After Young Master Qiao left the Capital, he went to several countries. However, there was only a record of him going to the R Lands and none of him leaving. I’ve checked all the hotels, airlines, buses and high-speed rail, but there was no information on him entering or leaving.”

Nan Zhi’s face was tense.

A living person could not just disappear for no reason and left no trace!

Unless he had used a fake identity.

With Uncle’s ability, it was not impossible for him to make a fake identity. But his trace was lost in the R Lands and not in the Capital. If he wanted to hide using a fake identity, it would not be easy for her to find him.

Nan Zhi rubbed her aching temples. After letting Yi Fan go to do his work, she took out her phone and called Cen Xi. The phone rang for some time and when Nan Zhi thought that no one was going to answer, Cen Xi’s surprised voice sounded. “Your Majesty?”

“How are you, Xiao Xi?”

Cen Xi was still shocked. She did not expect that Nan Zhi would call her. She was both overwhelmed and frightened at the same time.

Did the Queen call her to talk about her and Qiao Yanze?

“I’m fine. Did something happen for Your Majesty to call me?”

After a few seconds of contemplation, Nan Zhi said in a clear and gentle voice, “To be honest, I wanted to ask you something. Did you have any contact with my Uncle recently?”

Cen Xi’s heart thumped.

So it really was about Qiao Yanze. Did something happen to Qiao Yanze for the Queen to ask this?

“I didn’t get in touch with him after the incident with Young Master Li.” Cen Xi hesitated for a moment and could not help but ask, “Did something to him, Your Majesty?”

Seeing that Cen Xi did not know where her Uncle was and that they had not contacted each other, Nan Zhi did not want Cen Xi to worry and she smiled. “I had a small argument with him a few days ago, it’s nothing serious.”

After ending the call, Nan Zhi paced around the room anxiously. There was a knock on the study door and Yi Fan stood at the door. “Your Highness, Doctor Bai Ye is here.”

Perhaps it was his unpredictable nature, Bai Ye liked to move around. But Mu Sihan had a request for him, and that was to come back every three months to do a check-up for his family.

It was time to go back to the palace to do check-ups for the King’s family.

Nan Zhi nodded. “I’ll go down right away.”

When Nan Zhi arrived downstairs, Mu Sihan had also come back from the office. Mu Sihan asked Bai Ye to take Nan Zhi’s pulse first. Nan Zhi sat on the sofa and when Bai Ye was taking her pulse, she thought about Qiao Yanze.

At present, the position of the master of the Qiao family had been handed over to Qiao Yanxuan by Uncle. As soon as he took over, Qiao Yanxuan replaced all the old servants of the Qiao family.

It was clear that his style of working did not take into consideration old relationships at all.

Moreover, he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Even if she returned to the old house, he would use Uncle not wanting to take over the Qiao family as a reason and made it seem like he was noble and great to have achieved accomplishments for the Qiao family. It was repulsive.

“The Queen is tense recently, perhaps too much and is preoccupied with troubles, which led to a disorder to her menstruation period.”

Mu Sihan glanced sharply at Bai Ye. “Are you sure?”

Bai Ye drew his hand back from Nan Zhi and said with a tingling in his scalp, “Your Majesty, I’m just telling you the truth!”

Nan Zhi regained her senses and she nodded. “I have been worrying about Uncle recently.”

“Young Master Qiao is actually quite pitiful…” Realizing that he had a slip of the tongue, Bai Ye immediately closed his mouth.

Sh*t. Bai Ye pretended to be calm as he went to Mu Sihan. He wanted to take Mu Sihan’s pulse, but Mu Sihan grabbed his arm.

Bai Ye shouted in pain, “Your Majesty, don’t be such a bully!”

Mu Sihan stood up from the sofa and stared at Bai Ye with eagle-like eyes. “What do you mean by ‘Young Master Qiao is actually quite pitiful’?”

Nan Zhi had also stood up from the sofa.

Both husband and wife were people with powerful auras. Together they besieged Bai Ye and Bai Ye had to surrender as he was unable to stand this kind of atmosphere. “He didn’t allow me to tell any… Okay, I’ll tell you. Let go first, you’re going to break my arm.”
