A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 1346
Searching For Someone
“You want to learn detective skills?” Xavier frowned. “I don’t know how to teach you that.”
After all, that was his innate talent.
Hearing that, Lana thought Xavier was unwilling to teach her. She felt deeply disappointed and sighed inwardly.
Somehow, when Xavier saw the disappointment on her face, he felt a little uncomfortable on the inside. After giving it some thought, he said, “I’m not saying you can’t learn it, but you’ve got to rely on yourself. If you encounter anything you’d like to investigate about during the next two weeks, I can help you out. After all, I’ve never learned this intentionally, nor have I taught anyone. The only reason I’m in this field is my talent.”
Lana’s eyes sparkled when she heard his offer. That works too. I’ll just learn however much I can from him.
At that thought, a delighted smile formed on her face. “Okay. Thank you, mentor!”
Upon seeing the smile on her face, Xavier’s eyes twinkled. “I can’t be your mentor since I’m not even teaching you anything. You can just call me Eric.”
“You can call me Lana, then. Come on, I’ll take you to your room.” Lana was extremely hospitable and wanted to take Xavier to his room personally. Xavier did not reject her kind intentions and followed after her.
“This is your room. It’s fully equipped with all kinds of facilities here. If you want to order your meals without going downstairs, you can give the front desk a call. If you feel like going down to have your meal, there’s a restaurant for you to try. Feel free to go in there and order anything you want to eat.”
“Okay. Got it. Thanks!” Xavier’s lovely almond eyes looked as though they were smiling as he stared at the enthusiastic Lana.
For some reason, Lana blushed when she saw the smile on his face.
“Well, you should get some rest. I’ll get back to work now.” With that, she scurried out, looking as though she was running away.
As Xavier watched her leave, a smile tugged at his lips. He then shook his head and put down his luggage.
The sun shone brightly the next day.
After washing up, he went downstairs in a rush. There wasn’t much time left. Hence, he had to complete the task assigned by Vinson as soon as possible.
The moment he arrived downstairs, he heard someone calling out to him. As he turned around, he saw Lana. Curious, he raised his brows and flashed her a smile. “What is it?”
“Have you had breakfast? If you haven’t, let me treat you then.” Lana beamed.
Originally, Xavier had no plans to have breakfast. However, he changed his mind and looked at Lana. “I haven’t, but shouldn’t the guy be the one treating others to a meal? So here, let me treat you to a meal. What would you like to eat?”
Turlenians were generally tall people, including females. Although Lana was about one hundred and eighty meters tall, she was still a head shorter than Xavier when she stood before him. She tilted her head and scrutinized the man, praising him inwardly for being such a gentleman. Naturally, she would not reject his offer. After all, she needed to get closer and build a relationship with him. That way, it would be easier for her to learn from him.
Xavier, being the international top detective that he was, was well aware of her intentions. Despite so, he did not dislike it as he had his own motives, too.
Feeling curious, Lana asked after the meal, “Eric, why did you come here?”
“I’m looking for someone,” Xavier answered plainly.
Looking for someone? Lana’s eyes lit up, her interest piqued.
“Who are you looking for? Perhaps I could be of some help.” Lana propped her head up and blinked her attractive, wide eyes while staring at Xavier.
“My boss is looking for her father. Her father fell in love with a woman in the past, causing the latter to be pregnant. After that, he disappeared. My boss carried out all kinds of investigations which led her to believe that her father is a local here. That’s why I took the risk of coming here.”
His ultimate goal was to look for someone, and he thought that Lana might be able to help him out.
Thus, Xavier did not bother to conceal any details and told her truthfully about his motive for traveling to Turlen.
