The words were firm and uncompromising.
“Young lady ……”
Long Lao’s expression was choked, but a huge wave lifted in his heart, “You, didn’t you go to the other side of the ocean?”
When he asked this, his voice trembled a little.
At that time, in order to force Gu Qingying out, the means Chen Dong used could not be described as ruthless, and could even be said to be unscrupulous.
If anyone else had been treated like that, it would never be possible for them to change their mind.
But now, after Chen Dong’s accident, Gu Qingying appeared at Tianmen Mountain Villa!
“I knew all about it a long time ago.”
Gu Qingying stood at the entrance in her maternity clothes, holding her big belly, and looked at Elder Long with eyes that softened a few points.
Long Lao froze for a moment, then suddenly his mind went “boom” and he woke up with a jolt.
With his experience, he naturally knew that Gu Qingying’s words clearly meant something!
If he hadn’t known that Chen Dong had deliberately forced her out, then after all that had happened, Gu Qingying would not have returned immediately!
His eyes were wide open as he looked at Gu Qingying incredulously, “Young Madam, you, what do you know?”
He didn’t admit it outright, nor did he ask a direct question, but instead asked a question that was slightly out of place and could still be spun back.
After all, at this moment it was still only a guess in his mind, whether Gu Qingying meant what she said or not was still open to debate.
On the side, Meng and Fan Lu were looking at the two with bewildered faces.
The two of them were still in the dark, except for Long Lao, who knew the whole story of Chen Dong and Gu Qingying’s divorce, but the others were still in the dark until this moment. The two of them were still in the dark.
The two of them were in the middle of a divorce, but they were not in the middle of a divorce.
At the end of her sentence, her voice sobbed, “That big fool, he never hid it from me, he said it in his sleep ravings that night when he was so drunk, I knew it, I knew it all ……”
The sound of crying echoed in the room.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled and tears fell like rain.
She had endured the pain during these days of divorce, but she knew even better how much inner turmoil Chen Dong had gone through when he had made such a decision.
Meng and Fan Lu’s jaws dropped and they stood frozen on the spot.
Long Lao, on the other hand, was frozen for a moment before reacting violently and stepping forward to discourage them, “Young Madam, you are pregnant, don’t cry, be careful of moving your foetus.”
“Yes, yes, Little Shadow, you need to calm down, the baby is the priority.”
Fan Lu also hurried to console.
Having been pregnant for ten months and having experienced the death of the baby, it was clear to all of them that Chen Dong valued this time more than anything else, otherwise he would not have been willing to endure the severe pain that tore his heart and forced Gu Qingying away.
Gu Qingying sobbed and trembled, her shellfish teeth clenching her red lips, forcing back her sobs, but her teary eyes were incomparably determined.
“Now that he is not here, someone needs to stand up and tell those people that this family business is not yet scattered, that there is still someone in charge of this family!”
One word came out.
Elder Long’s heart instantly tumbled, staring at Gu Qingying in astonishment.
This was precisely the most difficult and urgent issue at hand!
After Ye Linglong’s sudden disappearance, Gu Qingying returned, and as Chen Dong’s original spouse, even though she had divorced Chen Dong, she was still the most suitable candidate among the crowd.
After all, what Gu Qingying is carrying in her belly is always the Chen family bloodline!
But how did the young lady of …… hit the nail on the head and see things so clearly?
Just as Long Lao was puzzled and amazed.
As if Gu Qingying had guessed what was on Elder Long’s mind, she smiled bitterly, but an untamed confidence came out between her eyebrows.
“Elder Long, I am the Gu family’s thousand-year-old daughter, the ten billion family business is not as good as the Chen family, but business I still grew up immersed in, it is not that I do not understand, or that I cannot see through it.”
After a pause, she said slowly, “It’s because when he’s around, he can make me put everything down and be willing to be a little woman.”
The heart had love and was willing to bow down.
“Now that he’s not around anymore, then I have to lift my head too and help him take care of his home and his children!”
Gu Qingying’s teary eyes shone with essence, and her entire aura was very different from the days of old.
Sensing the change in Gu Qingying, Long Lao was dumbfounded and lost his smile.
When the old slave first arrived at the young master’s side, Dingtai’s sky-high contract follow-up material supply dilemma, wasn’t it the young lady who came back and took over her father’s material company, helping the young master at any cost?
Thinking back on all that had happened, Long Lao felt a pang of emotion in his heart.
When Gu Qingying had helped Chen Dong with the supply of materials, she had indeed been very capricious, and had even said that she had deliberately made a loss-making deal.
But this could not be said that Gu Qingying did not have vision and ability.
A young lady who grew up immersed in business, even if she had no intention of going into business, she would still be able to develop a taste for it when soaking in such a family.
Not to mention, Gu Qingying was not a mediocre person in the first place!
After taking a deep breath, Long Lao said in a deep voice, “Young Madam, since you already know all this, you should also understand the good intentions of the young master at the beginning, he did so much just to protect you and the child safely.”
The old man’s brow was furrowed in pain: “But if you come back now, doesn’t that make what the young master did at the beginning all go down the drain? Old slave …… does not agree with you!”
The words were firm and could not be refuted.
As far as Elder Long was concerned, he rarely used this tone of voice to speak to Chen Dong and Gu Qingying.
But this time, he had to do so!
Gu Qingying was indeed the best “spokesperson” in front of him, but as a servant, Elder Long was not yet so desperate as to throw himself on the mercy of the sick.
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying had come a long way, and he had seen them all in his eyes and remembered them in his heart.
His wife and children were Chen Dong’s scales of defiance.
Even if he were to give up everything in front of him, Chen Dong would never let his wife and son fall into a deep lump again.
“As a family slave, who are you to refuse me?”
Gu Qingying’s eyebrows were clear and cold as she cast a sidelong glance at Elder Long.
Immediately, ignoring Long Lao’s dumbfounded consternation, she walked into the study with her big belly and sat down on the chair in front of the desk, her voice determined and unrefutable.
“Push me out immediately, this is my order!”
Elder Long’s face turned red, anxious as an ant on a hot pot.
Gu Qingying slapped her palm on the table and said in a stern voice, “I am ordering you, not discussing with you! He used to guard our mother and son, now it’s our mother and son’s turn to guard everything about him until he returns!”
The cold wind cracked the snow.
The icy coldness was like a fine needle, sticking straight into the pores.
This was a small village in the Northern Region.
There are only a dozen or so families, but at the moment the smoke is curling up from every home.
The hunting dogs are barking.
A peaceful scene.
At the head of the village there were a few children chasing and playing with a wretched figure.
“Dog, dog, dog, dog, you bark, why don’t you bark?”
“Hee hee hee …… Ah Dog, you’re no fun at all, my hunting dog will still yellow dog pee.”
“Ah dog, say something, call me big brother, I’ll get you noodle buns to eat at home.”
The children, their faces frozen red, chased after the wretched figure while laughing and shouting.
Only when their families called did they disperse in a huff.
Chen Dong sat in the corner of the thatched roof, his head rustling white snow, but his eyes were confused and empty.
Half a day later.
His lips mumbled, “Do I call …… Ah Dog?”
Murmurs, drowned in the wind and snow.
Chen Dong looked at the snow on his body and at the snowy footprints left by the children just now.
He did not care, shaking off his body and shaking off the snow, then he slowly got up by propping himself up against the wall.
The playful pounding of a few children, not to mention him, would not have caused the slightest injury even to an ordinary adult.
The injuries on his body had completely recovered.
So much so that even Chen Dong himself was shocked and smacked his lips.
His mind was blank, he had lost his memory, but he had not become stupid.
There must be some secret hidden in himself, otherwise there was no way to explain away this terrifying recovery power!
The extreme weakness that had shattered his bones at that time was still fresh in his mind even now.
But how long had it been?
He had fully recovered himself!
Perhaps if …… found the secret in his body, he could get himself back!
It was just the blankness in his mind that made Chen Dong feel as if he was a headless fly, bored around in this northern snowy plain.
This village, too, was the first human village he had seen since he had awakened.
His stomach was already ravenous.
If he was thirsty, he could contain snow and turn it into water, but if he was hungry, he could only eat.
He had entered the village to find something to eat, but he had not expected to encounter the playful knocking of some children.
Chen Dong held onto the wall and the breath exhaled between his mouth and nose turned into a white mist visible to the naked eye.
Soon he made his way around to the main gate of the thatched cottage.
Across the courtyard wall, he looked out into the thatched room and vaguely saw a fire dancing.
“Is someone there?”
Chen Dong shouted.
“Who is it?”
Inside the thatched hut, an old voice came out.
Immediately, an old woman, wrapped in a thick animal robe, opened the door of the thatched room tremblingly and walked towards the entrance of the courtyard.
The old man was too old, with a face full of folds and old age spots, and hair as white as flying snow.
It was freezing and cold.
It made every step she took seem as if she was using up all her strength.
“Young man …… is there something wrong?”
The old crone’s cloudy eyes looked at Chen Dong and smiled amiably.
Chen Dong covered his stomach: “Grandma, I’m hungry ……”
The old woman’s cloudy eyes looked behind Chen Dong and swept around while her face showed hesitation and hesitation.
Half a long time.
She reappeared with a kind smile and said sympathetically, “In this freezing weather, starvation will kill you, come in.”
With that, she opened the courtyard door.
Chen Dong followed the old woman into the house.
A wood fire was burning in the fire pit in the middle of the hall, and the heat was rolling in, dispelling the cold.
The old woman first told Chen Dong to sit by the campfire, and then brought two white flour buns from the kitchen and placed them next to the campfire.
“The noodle buns are a bit cold, toast them first, or they will hurt your stomach.”
Chen Dong looked at the white buns and swallowed a mouthful of saliva, but nodded his head in response.
During this process, the old woman kept staring at Chen Dong thoughtfully.
When the bun was somewhat warm, and Chen Dong picked it up and swallowed it, the old woman finally couldn’t help but ask.
“Young man, what is your name?”
Chen Dong’s eyes drifted for a moment and he whimpered, “Ah Dog.”
The old woman smiled, “It’s the same name as my grandchild, and a good name too, in this freezing weather, it’s better to have a cheap name.”
Chen Dong munched on the white flour bun and ignored it.
The old woman looked at Chen Dong’s wolfish gulping, her eyes a little pitying, but still continued to ask.
“Ah Dog, where are your parents and brothers, or your family?”
“I don’t know.”
Chen Dong finished gnawing on a white flour bun and pointed to his brain, “Grandma, when I woke up, it was just blank here, I don’t know anything anymore.”
The old woman froze for a moment and asked again, “Then how did you walk to this village?”
“I walked blindly, after I woke up I was cold and hungry, so I wandered around this snowy plain, and then I walked into the village.”
Chen Dong spoke bluntly, picking up a second white flour bun as he spoke.
But he didn’t notice in the slightest that the old crone’s entire face turned pale as she said this.
“Good heavens! This snowy plain is full of pale wolves and fierce beasts, and you are all alone and don’t know the way, and you have survived.”
It was not that she was fooling around.
At her age, she knew how cruel and dangerous this snowy white land was.
People born and raised in this world, from children to adults, grew up step by step with fear and awe of this nature.
So she knew very well how much favour the gods had suffered for Chen Dong to have made it to the village alive when he was still suffering from memory loss.
“Eat, eat and then go and sleep for a while, look how tired you are.”
The old woman seemed to have dropped her guard and looked at Chen Dong with a much softer look.
Soon, Chen Dong patted his stomach and, led by the old woman, went into a room and fell back to sleep on the bed before snoring for a while.
It was only in his daze that Chen Dong was awakened by the sound of a few arguments in the hall outside.
“Aniang, you are confused! How dare you bring outsiders into the village and let them sleep in our house?”
“Yes Grandma, in case it’s those barbarians from outside the domain disguised to come in, one slip up and it’s a ma*sacre of the village, there are many such things in the Great Snowy Plain!”
The old woman snapped in the face of the two men’s refutations.
“Shut up, people are still sleeping, that young man doesn’t look like an extra-terrestrial, and I’ve made some enquiries, he just happened to enter our village by boredom.”
Chen Dong slowly opened his eyes, somewhat hesitantly.
For some reason, he felt that the voices of the two men outside were somewhat familiar.
In doubt, the man’s angry voice suddenly came from outside.
“Aniang, this matter concerns the whole village, it is not up to you, I will go and drive him away!”
“Stop right there, that boy has been wandering around the village, why don’t other families chase him away?”
“Auntie, it’s not the same, he’s wandering around and the other families don’t kick him out because they just see him wandering around and don’t want to cause any trouble, when he wanders off on his own, if he lives in anyone’s house, do you think they’ll kick him out?”
The curtain of the sleeping room was lifted.
The man’s face was full of anger and he rushed in.
As soon as he saw Chen Dong on the bed with his eyes open, his eyes met, and the man stopped instantly, his pupils dilating extremely fast.
“Dad, what are you standing there for? Catch the man!”
With a questioning voice, another young man walked in.
The room, once again, returned to dead silence.
Both men, as it were, froze in place, their pupils dilating at breakneck speed.
The old woman rushed in and grabbed the two men, “Are you two fathers and sons going to kill me today?”
The moment the words left her mouth.
Both father and son let out a scream at the same time.
“Run, dog boy!”
The middle-aged man whistled shrilly, turned around and put the old woman directly on his shoulders and rushed outside.
As the younger man ran, he cried out and questioned, “Grandma, are my father and I your own children or not? Why did you pick up such a big baby?”
In the blink of an eye, Chen Dong was left alone in the room.
He stared dumbfounded at the still swaying curtain cloth and blinked, “How …… did you run away again?”
