Gu Yusheng’s fingers quivered as he held onto his cigarette.
Fear from the thought of what could have happened to her turned into a fury that coursed through his entire body.
Equally enraged was Xiaowang, who was seated beside him. “This is utterly inhumane! To think that they aren’t afraid of retribution when they commit such a heinous atrocity!”
Brother Li’s assistant could not take back what he’d said.
Noticing Gu Yusheng’s continued silence, Mr. Xia turned and looked at him before asking, “Mr. Gu, how do you intend to settle this?”
Gu Yusheng’s eyes narrowed, whether due to anger or an aching heart, and he was unable to speak.
After waiting for some time, Mr. Xia continued to say, “Mr. Gu, with regard to this Li character, I could settle the issue if you would like—”
“There’s no need to!”
Gu Yusheng’s curt outburst cut short Mr. Xia’s speech and the sharpness in his voice gave Mr. Xia a shock.
Gu Yusheng’s gaze was ice cold, and he threw Mr. Xia an apologetic look before he continued to speak in an aggressive tone. “Don’t touch Li. Keep him. You…”
Gu Yusheng cast one look at Brother Li’s trusted sidekick. “Continue to stay by Li and notify me immediately if he makes any move.”
Gu Yusheng knew that if he removed Li, there would simply be another replacement for him.
It had been pure luck that he had managed to save Qin Zhi’ai this time, but he might not be so lucky next time.
Gu Yusheng could not afford to take any risk with Qin Zhi’ai.
Because they’d proven they would resort to underhanded means, he was comfortable playing the game by their rules.
As this thought crossed his mind, Gu Yusheng said to Li’s assistant, “Don’t worry; you will be treated well.”
“Yes, Master Gu. Rest assured that once Brother Li has any plans to make a move against Ms. Qin, I will inform you immediately.”
Gu Yusheng headed back to his villa after leaving the meeting with Mr. Xia and Li’s assistant. During the drive, he exuded an aura of tension that made it difficult for Xiaowang to breathe.
Upon driving into the courtyard, Xiaowang got out of the car and inhaled several times before walking over to open the door for Gu Yusheng. “Master Gu, we have arrived.”
Gu Yusheng was leaning against the car seat with his eyes closed. He showed no response to Xiaowang, who knew Gu Yusheng’s spirits were low, so he patiently stood by the car, waiting and not daring to speak again.
After some time, with his eyes still closed, Gu Yusheng said abruptly, “Xiaowang, I need you to do something…”
Subsequently, he mechanically gave an extensive list of instructions.
“Yes, Master Gu,” Xiaowang noted when Gu Yusheng stopped speaking.
Gu Yusheng remained in the car and pondered silently. After being sure he had not forgotten anything, he got out of the car and took a step but then stopped.
“By the way, Xiaowang, help me get a new cell phone when you drop by tomorrow.”
Xiaowang nodded his head to signal he had taken note of the task.
Not saying anything else, Gu Yusheng nodded his head slightly and turned to push the door to enter the courtyard.
After he disappeared behind the door, Xiaowang hopped back into the car and drove off.
Within an hour, the news spread like wildfire across the internet.
As March approached, each passing day became increasingly warmer in Hangzhou.
The weather on Friday was exceptionally pleasant and marked by azure skies with almost no wind.
With her baby doing well and Gu Yusheng now awake, Qin Zhi’ai’s mood had been exceptionally happy over the past two days.
