Winner Takes All Chapter 205-206

Chapter 205

Crunch!

The Porsche 911 suddenly snakes down the road, emitting an ear-splitting sound from the emergency brakes.

After snaking for a few dozen metres, it finally returned to normal.

Chu Reed sat on the driver’s seat, her hands gripping the steering wheel tightly.

Her face was terrified and she was dripping with fragrant sweat.

Almost.

Just now, it was so close!

If she hadn’t reacted quickly, she might have overturned the car.

Taking a deep breath, Chu Reed looked apologetically at Chen Dong beside her, “I’m sorry Mr. Chen, you forced me to do this, I was just talking to you about serious business.”

At this moment, Chen Dong’s head was already leaning back on the chair.

Although his face was still flushed, he had already passed out.

Just now, when Chen Dong’s medicine kicked in, after Chu Reed panicked, she instantly struck out decisively, directly knocking Chen Dong out.

It was only a few dozen meters before and after the car snake walk.

In a panic, Chu Reed could not think of any other way to stop it.

She couldn’t just let Chen Dong do what he wanted, could she?

She was not Zhang Yulan.

“Zhang Yulan, your Zhang family’s tactics are really underhanded!”

After she despised the Zhang family, Chu Reed once again let the Porsche 911 speed up.

……

This night, dark currents were raging throughout the city.

The furious Zhou Yanqiu unleashed all the power he could muster to thoroughly investigate the matter of the Heavenly Pavilion at Jade Spring Villa.

This matter was a matter of Chen Dong’s life.

The dozens of killers were clearly aimed at Chen Dong.

If the investigation was not clear.

The Chen family would descend a monstrous amount of anger on him.

Even anyone present would not be able to escape.

Even if it was the Zhang and Chu families!

The only thing that made Zhou Yanqiu thankful was that the Kunlun Lone Wolf had escorted Chen Dong away in deadly combat.

Chu Reed had also successfully led Chen Dong out of harm’s way.

Eventually, the intelligence network also fed back that Chu Reed had taken Chen Dong into the Lijin Hospital and that the person was safe and sound.

After hearing this news, Zhou Yanqiu finally breathed a sigh of relief.

But he still stayed awake all night.

When the next day came early in the morning.

Everything in the Heavenly Pavilion had been cleaned up.

Zhou Yanqiu did not dare to pause for a moment and hurried to the Lijin Hospital early in the morning.

Chen Dong was lying on the hospital bed, still unconscious.

Chu Reed was standing guard next to him, with Dean Liu and a group of leading doctors on one side.

The nearly midnight resuscitation had made Dean Liu and a group of main doctors as tired as they could be.

“Girl, Chen Dong is my niece’s son-in-law, I have called on the elite forces of the entire hospital to do all the resuscitation, it’s already fine, don’t worry.”

Dean Liu said to Chu Reed.

On one hand, he was placating, and on the other hand, he was also declaring his sovereignty in place of Gu Qingying.

After all, in Dean Liu’s opinion, it was inherently odd for a lone man and a widow to enter a hospital in the middle of the night to be resuscitated.

Moreover, Chu Reed’s looks were not much worse than Gu Qingying’s.

“Thank you, Dean and all the doctors.”

Chu Reed looked tired and got up to bow in thanks.

“You take care of Chen Dong for the night, I will inform his fiancée to come to the hospital as soon as possible.”

Dean Liu said, and left the ward with the doctors.

Chu Reed sat wearily on a chair and looked at Chen Dong, lost in thought for a while.

In a trance, she thought of the scene that happened in the car when she brought Chen Dong to the hospital last night.

She could not help but blush slightly and clench her hands together.

But looking at the gauze wrapped around Chen Dong’s body, she bit her red lips tightly with her shell teeth and murmured softly.

“You only asked me why I blocked the knife for you then, so why did you block the knife for me again?”

Thinking back to the scene last night, Chu Reed was inwardly moved.

At that time, she had acted purely out of instinct to protect the frail Chen Dong.

But Chen Dong was so weak at that time that he held himself together and blocked the knife for her.

If this was instinct, how much greater should it be?

After a while, the ward door was pushed open.

The one who ran in first was none other than Gu Qingying.

Seeing the unconscious Chen Dong on the bed, Gu Qingying’s eyes instantly turned red, and with tears in her eyes, she pounced to the bedside and softly shouted, “Chen Dong ……”

Following closely in was the gloomy looking Elder Long.

The sudden intrusion made Chu Reed startled.

She quickly asked Gu Qingying, “May I ask who you are?”

“She is my young master’s fiancée.”

Elder Long glanced at Chu Reed: “Miss Chu Family?”

“I am Chu Reed, and you are?”

Chu Reed looked at Elder Long in confusion.

“My surname is Long.” Elder Long smiled faintly, “Family master slave.”

“Reed has met Elder Long.” Chu Reed hurriedly saluted.

At this time, Gu Qingying, whose eyes were full of pain, also stood up.

Gratefully, she nodded to Chu Reed, “Thank you for saving Chen Dong.”

On her way here, she had already learned the details of last night’s events from Elder Long’s mouth.

Of course, the reason why Elder Long knew about it was also from Kunlun and Lone Wolf’s mouth.

Who would have thought that a banquet would turn into an assassination?

Gu Qingying couldn’t even dare to imagine how dangerous the scene was last night.

Because, as she knew, not only was Chen Dong unconscious in the hospital, Kunlun and Lone Wolf were now lying in Lijin Hospital, in the next ward.

“I should have done it, I’m very sorry, I didn’t expect a banquet to turn out like this, it’s the reed’s fault.”

Chu Reed bowed his head, his face full of apologies.

“This matter has nothing to do with you for now.”

Elder Long spoke calmly, but his tone was cold and stern, “I will find out what happened, and I will not spare anyone who dares to harm the young master.”

Chu Reed’s eyes flickered, wanting to speak but not to.

This matter was unrelated for the time being, but if any clues were found out, then the Chu family would not be able to get away with it!

She understood what Elder Long was saying, but the situation was already like this, so it was pointless for her to say more.

At that moment.

The door to the ward was pushed open again.

Zhou Yanqiu walked in in a hurry.

As soon as she saw Elder Long in the room, her face turned white with fear: “Elder Long ……”

“I know all about it.”

Long Lao coldly scolded, “Now, what are you doing here in the hospital?”

“I, I am here to visit Mr. Chen.” Zhou Yanqiu looked flustered.

Elder Long snorted coldly, “Don’t you think a visit at this point is superfluous? What happened at your Jade Spring Villa, it is imperative that you find out everything as soon as possible and give the young master an explanation!”

His voice was as cold as frost, sending chills down one’s spine.

Zhou Yanqiu was busy explaining, “Elder Long, after the incident happened, I immediately made a response, and the intelligence system under my command started to investigate with full force since last night, but unfortunately, the people who committed the murder were extremely well hidden.”

“A dozen killers, a large part of them were killed by Kunlun and Lone Wolf, but the remaining few, when they were captured by Kunlun Lone Wolf, also bit through the poison hidden in their teeth and committed suicide, so it will take time to find out.”

“Dead soldiers?!”

Elder Long’s eyebrows knitted together and a cold light erupted in his eyes, “Old man, young master, and the family head don’t have time to wait quietly, you don’t have much time, if you can’t find out the mastermind, then dispose of all those who have some connection to this matter!”

“I would rather kill the wrong person than let them go!”

Boom!

Zhou Yanqiu, Gu Qingying and Chu Reed were all stunned.

Those who had a slight connection would not be spared.

Wouldn’t that mean that even the two Zhang Chu families were among them?

Was this a bloodbath?

 

Chapter 206

Inside the ward.

With Elder Long’s words, the temperature plummeted to the freezing point.

Not only did Zhou Yanqiu and Chu Reed’s backs chill.

Even Gu Qingying’s eyes were flickering.

It was conceivable that if it was as Old Man Long had said, this time it would be very involved.

A storm would surely sweep through the city!

It would even spread to places farther away.

Elder Long’s face was sullen, his expression stern: “If you dare to assassinate my young master, then the world will know the wrath of the Chen family!”

Zhou Yanqiu’s lips mumbled, but in the end, he chose to remain silent.

Bowing his head in response, he turned and walked away quickly.

He did not want to be part of the “killing mistake”.

Chu Reed looked at Gu Qingying, and then at Elder Long.

She slowly spoke, “Since you are here, then reed will take her leave.”

Gu Qingying nodded her head.

Chu Reed left at once.

When it was time to walk to the door, Long Lao’s cold voice suddenly sounded behind him.

“Before the water settles down, please ask Miss Chu to continue to stay in the city for a few days, and all the expenses of living in the Jade Spring Villa will be borne by the old man.”

Chu Reed’s delicate body trembled as she bit her red lips and nodded, “As Elder Long commanded.”

She had come here because she wanted to get closer to Chen Dong, to take a chance on Chen Dong, the “wild” successor, to finally leap the Dragon Gate with a carp.

Even if the chances were slim, they were always there, better than nothing.

And now, it was clear that Elder Long’s words were no longer on behalf of Chen Dong.

Rather, it was the Chen family behind him!

After waiting for Chu Reed to leave.

Gu Qingying spoke in a soft voice, “Elder Long, isn’t this too cruel?”

“Cruel?”

Elder Long smiled faintly, “Young Madam is too well protected by her parents, if it wasn’t cruel, wouldn’t it tell those who harbour evil intentions to continue assassinating Young Master next time?”

Young Lady?!

Gu Qingying’s gaze flickered as she glanced at the unconscious Chen Dong and nodded, “Elder Long is right.”

After a pause, Gu Qingying asked again, “Didn’t you say that there was also the Zhang family from Kyoto as well?”

The corners of Elder Long’s mouth sketched a cold smile, “Old man is thinking of going to see the Zhang family, and asking young madam to take care of young master.”

Gu Qingying nodded and watched Long Lao leave the ward.

……

Jade Spring Villa.

Elder Zhang and Zhang Yulan had been terrified all night.

Last night’s experience was too bloody.

Even if Elder Zhang had been through the mall and was used to seeing the storm, he could not face it calmly.

Only those who have experienced death will know how horrible it is.

But terrified as he was, Elder Zhang quickly analysed the situation.

Go!

It was imperative to go!

The assassination was momentary, involving the Chen family, and it would certainly stir up a bloody storm.

If he were to stay here, he would certainly be imprisoned until the water came to light.

So, early in the morning, he greeted Zhang Yulan and packed up.

“Grandpa, shouldn’t we go to the hospital to visit Chen Dong?” Zhang Yulan was a little puzzled.

“Silly girl, this is now the centre of the whirlpool, if we don’t leave now, we won’t be able to get away!”

Elder Zhang sighed alas, “What’s more, don’t forget what you did last night!”

Thinking of the scene last night when Zhang Yulan pushed Chen Dong and Chu Reed out to block the knife, Elder Zhang’s heart was twitching.

With this matter existing, even if the assassination had nothing to do with them, Chen Dong would never let the Zhang family off the hook after he woke up.

Not to mention continuing to pull Chen Dong’s strings.

Zhang Yulan’s delicate body trembled and her face turned pale as she panicked and explained, “I, I didn’t mean to do it, I was also scared and anxious, so in my haste, I just ……”

“You are willing to explain, but does it make sense?”

Elder Zhang sighed helplessly, “The same is afraid, the same is in a hurry, how did Chu Reed do?”

With a single word, Zhang Yulan’s face changed dramatically.

It was as if a certain nerve had been stirred.

Zhang Yulan stomped her foot indignantly, “That slutty hoof, she must have been faking it at that time, she deliberately faked it, she must have been even more scared than me!”

Saying that, she clenched her silver teeth.

Ever since she was little she and Chu Reed had always fought, and she had always disobeyed Chu Reed.

Pretend?!

Elder Zhang was a little surprised by what Zhang Yulan said, and his heart was melancholy, how good would it have been if his granddaughter had also pretended last night?

But that scene, how can a mere word “pretend” explain it?

Even at his advanced age, he could not pretend to be in a scene like that because it was instinctive!

What’s more, even if he was pretending, he was still pretending to the point!

“Let’s go, if we don’t go, we shouldn’t be able to leave.” Elder Zhang sighed.

Zhang Yulan did not dare to say more, and hurriedly followed his grandfather, escorted by his bodyguards, towards the outside of the Jade Spring Villa.

And at this moment, Zhou Yanqiu was heading back.

The security personnel at Jade Spring Villa had not received any orders either.

Under the deliberate protection of the bodyguards, the grandfather and grandson were finally leaving the Jade Spring Villa.

“Hoo ……”

After getting into the car, Elder Zhang secretly breathed a sigh of relief.

Zhang Yulan asked with trepidation, “Grandpa, we should be able to walk away, right?”

“It’s only after we get to the sky that we can really walk away.” Master Zhang’s gaze burned, “After we return to Kyoto, in our own territory, even if the Chen family raises questions, our family can still have room to manoeuvre, instead of being as we are now, languishing.”

The airport on the outskirts of the city.

After the car arrived.

Master Zhang and Zhang Yulan were escorted by their bodyguards and entered the airport directly, boarding the private plane that had been prepared in advance.

Without the slightest pause, the plane took off directly.

At the same time, Zhou Yanqiu also returned to the Jade Spring Villa.

When he found out that the Zhang family’s grandchildren had left, Zhou Yanqiu’s face changed dramatically and he hurriedly reported to Elder Long.

After knowing the situation on the road, Elder Long directly turned around and headed straight for the airport on the outskirts of the city.

As he hurried, he made a phone call.

“Lord Meng, the young master has been assassinated, please do one thing.”

After a pause, Elder Long said in a cold voice.

“Tell that private plane that took off just now to return and land immediately, otherwise, Old Slave doesn’t mind using tactics and just shoot them down!”

After hanging up the phone.

A cold light flashed in Elder Long’s eyes and his face was sullen, “Before the matter is clarified, the King of Heaven will not be able to run away!”

On the plane.

Looking out of the window at the sea of clouds.

“Yu Lan, you can rest easy now, you haven’t slept all night, grab some rest.” The big stone fell from Elder Zhang’s heart.

“Grandpa, will there be a change of heart?” Zhang Yulan was still a bit uneasy.

Elder Zhang smiled lightly, “This is our Zhang family’s own plane, after take-off, even if there are changes, the plane will have to do as I order.”

The words had just fallen.

A flight attendant hurriedly came over.

“Master and Miss, we have just received the air traffic control, asking us to return and land immediately.”

Master Zhang’s heart sank as he said, “Ignore it and fly directly to Kyoto.”

What a fear.

Zhang Yulan’s pretty face was pale and a little frightened.

However, her grandfather’s words made her feel calm inside.

However.

Five minutes later.

A loud boom exploded into the sky.

This woke up both Elder Zhang and Zhang Yulan, who were drowsy, at the same time.

The two looked out of the window and were instantly stunned.

Two warplanes, one on the left and one on the right, were flying with the private plane.

And the ammunition landing gears of the warplanes had been lowered.

It was aimed squarely at their private plane.
