Across the ocean.
When the plane landed at the airport, it was already early the next morning.
Chen Dong stepped off the plane and saw Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang stationed by a Rolls Royce by the airport runway from afar.
Seeing Chen Dong.
Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang greeted them, both of them with guilt on their faces, not daring to meet Chen Dong’s eyes.
“I have already asked Elder Long to convey my attitude to you, I will not hold the Hong Society responsible for this matter, but …… you must be responsible for finding out where the ancient family’s mountain gate is!”
Chen Dong’s heart understood, a sentence released the guilt apprehension in Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang’s hearts.
“Mr. Chen, I’m really sorry about your father-in-law and mother-in-law.”
Ye Yuanqiu looked gloomy as he bowed his head in guilt and apologised.
Chen Dong looked indifferent and ignored it, directly getting into the car.
If he had a choice, he would rather not set the Southwest and protect his father-in-law and mother-in-law safely.
It was a mistake ……
This matter Hong will have a fault, but the crime is not to death.
In the end, it was also Ye Yuanqiu who took the risk of gambling on the premise of mastering the high probability of winning at that time.
The only thing is that despite having a high probability of winning, the Gu family still “hit hard” with this one.
Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang looked at each other with complicated eyes.
Immediately, Ye Yuanqiu let out a sigh and gestured for Yuan Yigang to get into the car.
This time, Chen Dong had come in secret, and before his departure, Elder Long had specially instructed Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang not to make a show, so only Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang were present at the pick-up.
On the way, Yuan Yigang drove the car.
Chen Dong and Elder Long sat side by side in the back row, the car was quiet and the atmosphere was somewhat frozen.
From the moment he got into the car, Chen Dong closed his eyes and looked sad and unhappy.
It was precisely this reaction that made Elder Long and Yuan Yigang feel as if they were on pins and needles, like mangles on their backs.
Every now and then, Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang would sweep their afterglow onto Chen Dong, trying to break the silence inside the car.
But when they saw Chen Dong’s appearance, the two of them forced themselves to hold back.
This time …… Hong would have caused too much trouble!
Whether it was Ye Yuanqiu or Yuan Yigang, both knew what Chen Dong was like, not to mention that on the eve of setting the Southwest, Chen Dong had made his attitude very clear.
It was Chen Dong’s mother-in-law who died!
It was Chen Dong’s father-in-law who had gone mad!
Anyone else would have had a monstrous hatred in their heart!
“Has my mother been buried yet?”
Chen Dong’s eyes were closed, and suddenly his lips and teeth opened lightly, breaking the quietness in the car.
At these words.
Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang let out a sigh of relief like a weight.
They were not afraid of Chen Dong’s accountability, what they feared was the torment in silence.
Ye Yuanqiu hurriedly said, “It has been properly buried, but Mr. Gu ……”
Chen Dong raised an eyebrow, his gaze looked askance at Ye Yuanqiu, and in a flash it was overpowering.
Even Ye Yuanqiu’s heart instantly jumped when he was locked by Chen Dong’s gaze.
He hurriedly lowered his head, avoiding Chen Dong’s gaze, and said sadly, “Mr Chen should have seen the video, right? Mr. Gu took too big a blow and was delirious, after burying Madam Li, Mr. Gu has been guarding the tomb and refused to leave, Hong will always send someone to watch over it.”
“Let’s go straight to the cemetery.”
Chen Dong’s brow tightened into a “Chuan”, and his heart stung for a while.
The relationship between his father-in-law and mother-in-law was as strong as glue.
From Gu Qingying’s character, one could see the harmony and happiness of the family.
Family, it is never the initial place where one’s original character is nurtured!
To personally watch his wife die and decay in front of him …… This is a heaven-collapsing blow to his father-in-law!
Half an hour later.
The Rolls Royce slowly drove into a cemetery.
Surrounded by lush greenery, it was quiet and serene, with birdsong and flowers.
But when Chen Dong looked out through the car window, all he could see was a towering tombstone, stretching out in a forest.
The Rolls Royce came to a halt.
Yuan Yigang was the first to get out of the car, and without waiting for him to open the door, Chen Dong opened the door himself and stepped down.
Yuan Yigang’s right hand froze in mid-air and was put down somewhat awkwardly.
“Dragon Head Chen, it’s just ahead.”
Yuan Yigang pointed in a direction.
“Lead the way.”
Chen Dong said with a sad face.
Yuan Yigang immediately went ahead, with Chen Dong and Ye Yuanqiu following close behind.
From a distance, Chen Dong saw a group of men in suits gathered in a circle.
As they drew closer, a raspy, sobbing voice came from them.
“Wanqing, hungry, let’s eat ……”
“Wanqing, I’m talking to you, why are you ignoring me? Hahahaha …… did I make you angry again?”
“Ooooooooooo …… wife, I’m wrong, hit me, don’t be angry with me, don’t ignore me, okay?”
Chen Dong’s eyebrows lowered, the grief in his eyes was thick as if it was going to turn into substance, his heart was even more as if it was stuffed with stones and blocked.
The father-in-law’s insane words were like red-hot knives, lingering on his body.
The guilt was like a monstrous tsunami.
As for Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang, they were also forlorn and gloomy at the moment, their expressions moving.
Seeing Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang, the people of the Hong Society parted a way.
At Yuan Yigang’s gesture, no one greeted them.
As the people parted, Chen Dong also got a good look at his father-in-law, only now his father-in-law made his eyes swish red, and tears could not stop welling up in his eyes.
Gu Guohua kneeling in front of the tombstone, his body leaning forward, the upper half of his body almost pressed against the tombstone, unkempt, full of haggard face, lips are also dry and cracked out a crack, full of bloodshot eyes flooded with tears, naive smile at the corner of the mouth is even flowing down a crystal line of saliva.
Crazy, down and out ……
Where there was once the glowing, ware!
“Hey …… wife, you are not too cold ah? Yes, yes, yes, you just keep telling me you’re cold and that the rotten meat on your stomach hurts, yada yada yada ……”
Gu Guohua suddenly cried out, struggling to straighten his upper body, about to take off his jacket, “Cover it, cover it and you won’t be cold, not afraid …… husband is here, husband is here ……”
Chen Dong could no longer hold back, cried out a howl and rushed towards Gu Guohua with big strides.
Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang’s faces changed drastically and they hurriedly let out a cry of alarm, but it was too late.
Gu Guohua’s body shook violently as he raised his head and gazed at Chen Dong fearfully.
“Don’t come over, don’t come over! Don’t hurt my wife, I, I’ll fight you!”
With a hiss, the fear in Gu Guohua’s scarlet eyes suddenly dissipated, replaced by madness and ruthlessness, and his features were even hideously twisted.
He lunged directly in front of Chen Dong and threw a fist that smashed into Chen Dong’s face.
Chen Dong let out a muffled grunt and fell to the ground.
“I’ll fight with you, fight! Don’t hurt my wife, aaaahhh ……”
Gu Guohua, as if he was a wild beast, directly pounced on Chen Dong, swinging his fist and landing hard on Chen Dong’s body, while biting on Chen Dong’s shoulder with a bite, a beast-like grunting sound came out of his mouth.
Chen Dong lay on the ground and did not resist in the slightest, even with his strength, if he had the intention to resist, Gu Guohua would not even be able to get close to him.
But the tide of shame and self-blame made him face Gu Guohua without even the thought of resisting!
If it wasn’t for him, if it wasn’t for Southwest Dingding, how could his father-in-law and mother-in-law be in such a situation?
In the quiet of the cemetery.
The hisses and cries of Gu Guohua, who was as mad as a wild beast, echoed, accompanied by the ringing sound of fists to flesh.
Chen Dong lay on the ground, motionless, tears streaming down from his scarlet eyes.
Compared to his father-in-law’s fist to flesh, his heart was like a knife twist, painful to the bone!
A sudden scene.
It caused Ye Yuanqiu, Yuan Yigang and a group of Hong Society members to freeze for a moment.
After regaining his senses, Yuan Yigang sternly ordered the men to pull Gu Guohua away.
“Stop right there!”
Chen Dong let out a roar and drank the crowd to a halt.
Ye Yuanqiu persuaded sadly, “Chen Dong, Mr. Gu has lost his mind, he doesn’t recognise you anymore, he will treat anyone who dares to come near this way, otherwise how would my Hong Society be able to do nothing to him?”
“Even if he’s crazy, that’s still my father-in-law, who dares to touch?”
Blood dripped from the corners of Chen Dong’s mouth as he wailed harshly.
Gu Guohua threw another heavy punch that viciously smashed into the corner of Chen Dong’s mouth.
Chen Dong’s head tilted and a mouthful of blood spat out directly.
But he still did not resist.
As far as he was concerned, this was as it should be!
Even if his mad father-in-law chopped him with a knife now, that was still the right thing to do!
To be a child and not do your filial duty, but to involve your parents because of your own affairs, you are simply an animal!
“No touching my wife, I’ll fight you, fight for your life, hahaha …… wife don’t be afraid, with husband around, they don’t dare to do anything to you!”
Gu Guohua raised his head, crying and howling at Li Wanqing’s tombstone, but his hands were clenching his fists and falling towards Chen Dong without pause.
Seeing Chen Dong being beaten up and spurting blood from his mouth, both Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang were as anxious as ants on a hot pot.
Both of them knew clearly that with Chen Dong’s strength, an ordinary person like Gu Guohua wouldn’t even have a chance to get close if not willingly!
“Mr. Chen ……”
Ye Yuanqiu burst out again.
But this time.
Not waiting for Chen Dong to speak.
Gu Guohua fiercely turned his head, as if he was a frenzied ferocious beast, glaring deadly at Ye Yuanqiu, baring his teeth and grinning while waving his hands.
“Get lost! Get lost, all of you! Stay away from my wife, no harming her, no harming her!”
Ye Yuanqiu’s expression choked.
Chen Dong had blood in his mouth and said in a stern voice, “My father-in-law told you to back off, why don’t you do so?”
His words were like thunder, carrying a raging anger.
Ye Yuanqiu’s old face changed, and after hesitating for two seconds, he fiercely gritted his teeth and waved his hand, “Everyone, retreat!”
Looking at the crowd retreating, Gu Guohua’s face overflowed with a bright smile, “Hahaha …… wife not afraid, not afraid, they are driven away by me, driven away by me!”
While laughing, he was trembling all over, and no longer continued to attack Chen Dong.
Chen Dong lay flat on the ground, looking at Gu Guohua in front of him, crying with blurred teary eyes.
His lips trembled as he cried out a howl.
“Bad man, bad man!”
Gu Guohua’s eyes instantly widened in anger as he brazenly lifted his right hand and slapped Chen Dong’s face fiercely.
The force was strong.
Chen Dong once again spurted out a mouthful of fresh blood, most of which was sprayed on Gu Guohua’s right hand.
“I’ll kill you!”
Immediately afterwards, Gu Guohua once again let out a roar, like a wild beast, and bit down fiercely on Chen Dong’s shoulder.
Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang led the Hong Society members to retreat twenty metres away.
This distance was so that they would not anger Gu Guohua, and at the same time, they could also provide quick support in case there was any change.
“Ancestor, should we just stand by and watch Ancestor Chen?”
Yuan Yigang was a little anxious and was busy asking Ye Yuanqiu’s opinion.
Ye Yuanqiu sighed with a feeble lament, “Chen Dong has such a mind, what else can he do? If he doesn’t let go of the knot in his heart, we are offending him and Gu Guohua by going up to free him!”
Yuan Yigang still wanted to argue, but as soon as the words left his mouth, he hung his head and sighed heavily, swallowing the words back into his stomach.
The crowd was in sight.
Gu Guohua pounced on Chen Dong and tore at him, while Chen Dong kept screaming for his dad at the top of his lungs.
The scene was bloody and horrific.
If I had to describe it, it was as close to a zombie movie as you can get!
Chen Dong cried and howled, grief-stricken.
But the scarlet tearful eyes then revealed a look of shock.
His body tensed and stiffened all at once.
Along with the sharp pain on his shoulder, he clearly felt that Gu Guohua’s finger, was scratching the palm of his left hand!
A whimpering low cry suddenly sounded in his ears.
The sound was soft, even a little whimpered because Gu Guohua was biting his shoulder.
But to Chen Dong, it was still no less than a thunderbolt from the ninth heaven!
In an instant, Chen Dong’s heart felt as if it was about to jump out of his chest, and his whole body was ecstatic!
The tears in Chen Dong’s eyes rushed out like a river breaking its banks.
Dad remembered me!
He still remembers me!
He’s not crazy!
So now he is ……
In the snap of his fingers, Chen Dong thought of many, many things, but his complexion became more and more grave!
Dad …… was pretending to be crazy on purpose!
He did so for the purpose, what is it?
Finally, in the heart of his left hand, Gu Guohua’s finger strokes came to a halt.
At the same time, Chen Dong also felt Gu Guohua’s chest position arch up, just enough to clear some space for him.
Only Gu Guohua was still viciously tearing at his shoulder, while his hands kept pounding him!
Since he knew that his father-in-law was faking madness, there must be a reason for it!
Now this, perhaps, was hiding something!
Chen Dong struggled to move his left hand, bending it, following the gap deliberately left open by Gu Guohua, and slowly reaching out in front of him.
In the process, he tried hard to conceal his movements from being seen by Ye Yuanqiu and the others in the distance!
As he placed his left hand in front of his eyes, two bloody words, like a heavy hammer, blasted into his eyeballs.
Chen Dong froze, his eyes widened and his mind went blank.
Why …… were these two words?
In his vision, the word “divorce” was scarlet and blinding, and every stroke was like lightning, tearing at Chen Dong’s eyeballs.
He never thought that his father-in-law would pretend to be crazy and leave these two words in his hands!
He had gone to all the trouble to not want to repeat his father’s mistake, but now ……
Time, at this moment for Chen Dong, seemed to be slowed down without limit, tending to stop.
Everything around him seemed to have ceased to exist.
Even the pain that Gu Guohua had torn into his shoulder was not so painful at this moment, no, it was not painful at all!
The next second.
Gu Guohua suddenly let go of Chen Dong, and then his whole body popped up as if he had been electrocuted.
Gu Guohua looked terrified, his mouth screaming, staggering back a few steps, retreating to Li Wanqing’s tombstone, and without warning, he directly knelt down on the ground with a “poof”.
Immediately, he smashed his head against the ground desperately, crying and begging.
“Let her go, please …… let her go!”
