A strong wind whistled.
Chen Daolin did not move a muscle, not dodging.
However, Chen Dong’s fist blade came to an abrupt stop in front of him.
With that, it slowly dropped.
Chen Dong’s face was as cold as frost, and his deep eyes were churning with monstrous hostility.
“Why didn’t you hit me?”
Chen Daoling smiled bitterly, incomparably despondent: “I deserved to be beaten.”
This scene, if onlookers were to see it, their jaws would definitely drop in shock.
The head of the Chen family, who had all the wealth in the world at his fingertips, yet he looked so depressed and dejected?
“After beating you, will mum come back?”
Chen Dong turned around and looked towards the night scene of Tianmen Mountain in the distance, muttering, “It’s all in the past, one’s eyes always have to look forward, don’t they?”
Chen Daolin was silent, guilt piling up in his heart.
This game was his way of going along with Old Lady Chen’s plot, and his aim was also to sharpen Chen Dong.
But Zhou Xuan’s collapse and violent rise had taken him beyond control of the situation.
It also indirectly led to the death of Li Lan.
This, as if it were a knot in his heart, was deadly clumped in his mind.
It was because he could not guarantee the lives of Chen Dong and Li Lan that he had resolutely taken on the reputation of abandoning his family and returned to the Chen family.
But now, even though he was the head of the Chen family, he still failed to secure the lives of his beloved ones.
Such frustration and guilt were too much for Chen Daolin to let go of.
But compared to Chen Dong, he was better at suppressing and hiding it, hiding this intense guilt and frustration deep in his heart.
“Uncle Daojun was the one you sent into the Black Prison back then, why would he instead help me get out of it?” Chen Dong suddenly asked.
Chen Daolin’s eyes were deep and he smiled meaningfully.
“Chen family, the factions are complicated, the successors even cover every faction, competing with each other, it is inevitable that there is a gap of enmity, an enemy of an enemy, that is a friend.”
An enemy of an enemy?
Chen Dong’s gaze flickered for a moment, his understanding of the Chen family was too little after all.
The Chen family was not a direct line of succession like the rest of the richest people on one side, if that was the case, it would be easy to understand the Chen family clearly.
The Chen family was, by preference, a meritocracy, and the winner was king.
Perhaps this is why the Chen family has always been high up in the clouds.
Always …… let the strongest person take the helm of the family.
Taking a deep breath, Chen Dong did not continue to ask about the secrets in the Black Prison.
He turned his head to look at Chen Daolin: “Dad, just tell me, can Old Lady Chen be killed?”
His voice was cold and his killing intent was overwhelming.
A week had passed, although he was busy with his mother’s mourning.
But Old Lady Chen was in the Chen family, if her father had really thought about it, he would have already set off a monstrous wave.
“For the time being, I can’t.”
Chen Daolin shook his head, anger flickering in his eyes as he suppressed his killing intent, “The Chen family is not as simple as you think, it is true that she is an elder, but in the end I only call her Third Mother, if it was good enough to kill, would I have waited for twenty years?”
Chen Dong nodded dryly, his voice as cold as a knife, “Then I will destroy the Qin family and pay tribute to my mother!”
The corners of Chen Daolin’s eyes danced gently, not showing too much surprise.
All this was within his expectation.
It was only Chen Dong’s decisiveness in killing that gave him a slight shock.
Without more words, Chen Daoling spoke like frost, “This blood feud, someone will have to be buried for your mother after all.”
Chen Dong said calmly, turned around and walked towards the stairs.
Chen Daolin’s body trembled for a moment.
Looking at the departing Chen Dong, his face changed.
A word of thanks suddenly made him feel a little strange and his heart was empty.
The living room.
Gu Qingying and the others were waiting in silence.
When Chen Dong walked into the living room, his gaze however, fell directly on Qin Ye’s body.
“Want to go back to the Qin family?”
Qin Ye was stunned and asked, “I’m not even a Qin family member anymore, what’s the point of going back?”
“To take revenge!”
Chen Dong calmly spat out two words.
Inside the living room, the atmosphere was instantly solemn.
Long Lao Gu Guohua and the others were stunned.
Gu Qingying even had red lips, wanting to speak but not to.
Rao Qin Ye had not expected this either.
A glow rose in his eyes, and soon, it dimmed again, “We are not a match for the Qin family for the time being.”
A skinny camel is bigger than a horse, let alone the fact that the Qin Family was not a skinny camel, but was in its prime!
Such a party’s richest man was in no way comparable to the Li family in Kyoto.
“Is there a connection?”
Chen Dong raised his eyebrows and smiled, a brutal and rampant aura between his eyebrows, “In the name of the Chen family, bloodshed the Qin family, my mother’s revenge must be paid for by someone!”
Qin Ye smiled wickedly and decisively agreed.
No one noticed that his hands, quietly clenched into fists.
The night was getting late.
Gu Guohua and his wife had long since left.
Inside the bedroom, the light was charming.
Chen Dong sat on the edge of the bed, listening to the sound of water coming from the bathroom, his expression slightly strained.
Looking at the room Fan Lu had just tidied up, everything was still dressed as it was on the wedding day.
It was just that it had been tossed around by him over the past week.
Even more so because of the huge change in the wedding, which had made his wedding with Gu Qingying, full of regrets.
The death of his mother was an unbearable blow to him.
But to Gu Qingying, Chen Dong was also full of guilt.
A good wedding had turned into his mother’s funeral, and the wedding joy that should have belonged to Gu Qingying had been in a state of grief.
On the contrary, Gu Qingying had not even complained half a word about his depression over the past week, but had always been by his side, trying to enlighten.
This, in itself, was the greatest injustice to Gu Qingying.
The bathroom door opened.
The dense water vapour puffed out.
Chen Dong subconsciously looked and was lost in thought for a moment.
Under the light, Gu Qingying slowly walked out of the bathroom wrapped in a bath towel, revealing a pair of long, slender, rounded legs below.
Her long wet hair and snow-white scented shoulders still had droplets of water on them.
Her beautiful face, perhaps because of the temperature of the water, was flushed with two blushes.
Sensing Chen Dong’s gaze, Gu Qingying lowered her head somewhat shyly and said timidly, “What are you looking at?”
Chen Dong said softly.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled, her shell teeth biting her red lips as she slowly walked over to Chen Dong and sat down.
Chen Dong gently hugged Gu Qingying’s shoulders, the fragrance puffing out his nose, and gently let Gu Qingying lean on his shoulder.
Gently, he said, “This bout, I’ve aggravated you.”
“Big fool, what are you talking about? What do I have to be aggrieved about?”
Gu Qingying raised her head, her brilliant star-like eyes staring intently at Chen Dong, and said seriously, “All of us are sad that mum passed away, but the state you’ve been in for the past while is really too scary, promise me that you won’t be allowed to be in such a state again.”
“You’re not alone, you still have me, I’m your wife, no matter what happens, I have to carry it with you, but you don’t even want to say a word to me these days, if you’re really aggravated, this is what aggravation is, you make me feel like I’m not your wife.”
Chen Dong was stunned and a gush of warmth flowed deep inside.
“I promise you! Never again.”
Gu Qingying smiled faintly and pointed to the bathroom, “Go take a shower.”
Following closely, Gu Qingying gently whispered in Chen Dong’s ear, exhaling like an orchid: “Tonight, it’s the best night ever!”
The best night ever?
Chen Dong froze for a moment, then reacted and couldn’t help but have his heart beat faster.
“What are you still staring at?”
Gu Qingying’s eyebrows were crossed and she was charming.
Such a stunning beauty, even a single knitted brows and a smile was enough to charm infinitely.
Just this glance still surprised Chen Dong.
He had not expected that Gu Qingying’s eyebrows would be so “sharp”.
After taking a deep breath, Chen Dong got up and walked into the bathroom.
After some careful washing, he walked out of the bathroom wrapped in a bath towel.
The room was already dark, it was Gu Qingying who had turned off the lights.
Only a table lamp was left above the bed, emitting a faint yellow glow.
Gu Qingying, on the other hand, had already gotten under the covers, the bath towel from earlier thrown to the floor, and was lying under the covers, pulling the covers to cover her mouth and nose, looking at Chen Dong with a timid look.
Shy eyes, rippling with shyness.
Just such a look was worth a thousand words.
When Chen Dong entered the nest, Gu Qingying instantly acted as if she was a kitten, bullying her way into his arms.
“I said I would save this time for the best night ever!” Exhaling like an orchid, her red lips gently nibbled on Chen Dong’s ear, “Tonight, please treat me well, Husband.”
Chen Dong smiled tenderly and raised his hand to turn off the desk lamp.
All the feelings of affection, all in the darkness, exploded with a bang.
Three years of waiting, not to be outdone by the long love.
All the love, all tangled in the darkness to declare.
There was no talk all night.
When the morning sunrise spilled through the curtains, the bedroom.
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying slowly woke up from their sleep.
As soon as they opened their eyes, they found that the other was also looking at them.
Both of them were a little tired from the night, and Gu Qingying still had a few flushes on her face.
“Awake so early?”
Chen Dong raised an eyebrow and smiled.
“Woke up from the pain.” Gu Qingying’s willow brows knitted.
Chen Dong froze for a moment, then reacted and instantly laughed.
As if she was a scared kitten, Gu Qingying hurriedly reached out her jade hand to cover Chen Dong’s mouth, “Bastard, how dare you laugh?”
“Why can’t you laugh? You are my wife.” Chen Dong gently scraped the bridge of Gu Qingying’s nose.
The two looked at each other speechlessly.
For a long time.
Only then did Gu Qingying slowly speak, “Have you really decided to go to the Qin family?”
“Mm.” Chen Dong calmly answered.
“Can it be for a while?” Gu Qingying asked, “With such a drastic change at home, I want a few days of peace and I don’t want you to risk your life again.”
“It’s fine, with Dad around, with the Chen family’s name, the Qin family is nothing yet.” Chen Dong smiled faintly.
“However, I still think it’s too risky, the Qin family is as strong as ever, and it should still be difficult for the Chen family to try to suppress people with their power.” Gu Qingying said, “Moreover, you have also called on Qin Ye, he is also a former member of the Qin family, have you considered his feelings in doing so?”
Chen Dong smiled spontaneously, “Little fool, it was considering Qin Ye’s feelings that I asked him to join me.”
A statement that made Gu Qingying a little dazed and suspicious.
Letting Qin Ye …… watch the Qin family perish was considering Qin Ye’s feelings?
“What happened to Qin Ye in the Qin family is even more tragic than we thought.”
Chen Dong’s gaze was suddenly deep and powerful as he murmured in a low tone, “He went out of his way to cut open his wounds and even sprinkle salt on them in order to pull me out of hell.”
“He was despising me for being inferior to him, for being able to climb out of hell on his own while I was stuck in the mud and feet of hell.”
Speaking here, Chen Dong’s eyes suddenly flushed a little red.
The sudden change of emotion caused Gu Qingying to look flustered.
However, Chen Dong’s words changed, “Do you still remember, on the day of the wedding, the image of Qin Ye when he killed Zhou Xuan?”
“Remember.” Terror surfaced on Gu Qingying’s stunning face, “Qin Ye at that time, was very frightening, if you hadn’t laid a vicious hand on him, I guess no one would have been able to stop him.”
“So ah ……”
Chen Dong smiled despondently and bitterly, “He has been boasting that he has climbed out of hell, but he is still in hell at all, it’s just that this man has used his cynical skin to cover up the demon that lives deep inside him.”
“And the cause and effect of all this lies with the Qin family!”
“I see.” Gu Qingying nodded and softly admonished, “I know you want to take revenge and bring Qin Ye out, but you have to promise me that everything will be done in safety, and if it is not possible, then you have to come back immediately.”
With that, she patted her stomach and smiled wryly, “The baby and I are still waiting for you.”
“How can it be that soon?” Chen Dong looked at Gu Qingying in astonishment.
Gu Qingying raised her eyebrows slightly and said with a blush on her pretty face, “Whatever, pretend to be pregnant with the baby already anyway.”
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying washed up and changed into a straight suit under Gu Qingying’s selection.
Looking at his renewed glowing self in the mirror, Chen Dong was a little lost in thought.
The only difference, perhaps, was that his cheeks were a little thinner than before.
“From today onwards, I will wear the crown ……”
With a secret decision in his heart, his eyes were incomparably determined.
If you want to wear the crown, you must bear its weight!
Even if it is for the sake of his dead mother, he will wear this crown on his head.
Pulling Gu Qingying turned around and went downstairs.
In the dining room.
Chen Daolin, Long Lao Fan Lu, Kunlun and Qin Ye were eating breakfast.
Seeing Chen Dong and Gu Qingying who had come downstairs.
Qin Ye was astonished: “Holy shit, you’re up so early? A small farewell is better than a new wedding, you two are still newlyweds, a small farewell plus a new wedding, at least you have to get up at sunset, right?”
With a single word, Chen Dong and Gu Qingying were shy and embarrassed.
The few people at the table were also caught off guard and sprayed the thin porridge that had reached their mouths into their bowls.
Chen Daolin wiped a handful of porridge water from the corner of his mouth and glared at Qin Ye, “Qin boy, is your mouth running?”
Qin Ye shrugged his shoulders and gave Chen Dong a sidelong glance with a contemptuous expression, “Brother Dong can’t.”
Turning to Fan Lu, he said, “Sister Lu, let’s add some wolfberries to every dish for the noon meal.”
Fan Lu blushed in shame and said to Kunlun in a shy manner, “Brother Kunlun ……”
Kun Lun’s face was sullen as he glared at Qin Ye with a bitter killing intent, “If you make fun of your sister Lu again, I’ll show you what a sandbag-sized fist is.”
“Fine, fine, just bully me for being single.” Qin Ye shrugged his shoulders, conceded and bowed his head to drink his porridge.
Chen Dong pulled Gu Qingying to sit at the table.
He looked at Qin Ye with a smile, “Where are you single? Zhang Yulan can be eaten to death by you.”
The porridge in Qin Ye’s mouth spurted out, choking and coughing violently a few times, he hurriedly changed the subject, “Speaking of which, when are we going to the Qin family in Xishu?”
The atmosphere was instantly subdued.
Including Chen Daolin, all eyes fell on Chen Dong.
Chen Dong calmly sipped his porridge and said blandly, “We’ll leave at noon!”
Even Qin Ye was a little surprised.
Chen Dong raised his eyebrows and spoke like frost.
“To take revenge, do we have to choose an auspicious day? If it’s too late, there will be changes!”
Chen Daolin nodded, “Then I will return to the Chen family now, the old lady is too murderous, it’s time to invite her into the Buddha Hall to chant Buddhist sutras for a few days.”
