Chen Yufei was in tears, biting her red lips tightly.
Intense resentment and aggression rolled over her like a monstrous wave.
She did not hesitate to gamble with her reputation to bring down Chen Dong in one fell swoop.
The aim was to take revenge for her grandmother and return justice to the entire Chen family.
Of course, this glorious feat would also become a huge bargaining chip for her to compete for the position of family head.
But she did not expect that her grandmother, who had always doted on her, would actually say such words.
Her status as a big star, her self-proclaimed basic skills in the entertainment industry, was actually worthless in her grandmother’s eyes, nothing more than a lowly playboy!
What’s more, she didn’t expect that Chen Dong would actually be able to turn up the tide and save the day in the face of the monstrous situation.
The black spot hot search was a deliberate attempt to throw dirty water, but the involvement of the Chen family was a solid hammer.
One false and one real, directly hammering her scalp, powerless to resist.
The Chen family’s face is bigger than the sky, and the grandmother has personally drunk it, meaning she lost completely and utterly!
“Grandma …… I’m really so unwilling.”
Trembling voice, with a crying voice.
Over the phone, Old Lady Chen’s voice was however cold and harsh.
“If you are not willing, then go ahead and do it, if you persist and cause the Chen family to lose face, don’t blame me for being merciless, then not to mention the playboy, even your status as the heir of the Chen family, I will also take it away from you all together!”
“Grandma, it was Chen Dong who made this happen, he was the one who got involved with the Chen family, why do you want to condemn me like this?”
Chen Yu Fei shed tears and her delicate body trembled, still undeterred, “You care so much about the face of the Chen family, but what about the family head? As the head of the family, shouldn’t he be more concerned about losing face?”
“Chen Yu Fei, are you now not even listening to my words? Bullying and arrogance, you must not forget that your favour is given by the old body!”
The cold, stern voice did not give the slightest chance to retort.
Chen Yu Fei was completely desperate.
She murmured and cried, “Okay …… me, I promise grandma ……”
Hanging up the phone.
Chen Yufei directly flung herself onto the bed and bawled.
Her character, her experience, her identity, from childhood to adulthood, she had not been subjected to such great aggression.
A desperate and ruthless act, but never thought it would end in this way.
For the sake of the Chen family’s face, she had to stop, which gave her the feeling of being a bargaining chip.
But Old Lady Chen’s words, she dared not disobey, for if she didn’t, she would lose even more than she has now!
Tianmen Mountain Villa.
Chen Dong leaned back in his chair wearily, rubbing the bridge of his swollen nose.
He no longer cared about the wind direction of the major media.
It was because it was already moving in the direction he had expected.
He could ignore the face of the Chen family, and his father could ignore the face of the Chen family for his sake, but Old Lady Chen could not do that yet.
An old woman who had lived in the Chen family for nearly a hundred years and was used to the face of the gentry could not be expected to go out of her way!
Since she can’t go out of her way, then the dust has settled on this battle of public opinion.
The next step is just to wait for Chen Yufei to surrender her arms.
“Young master …… we are finally winning.” Long Lao let out a long breath, he also always paid attention to the wind direction of the major media.
“Yes, finally we have won.”
Chen Dong closed his eyes and responded as if he was relieved, “This time, it’s thanks to you guys as well.”
Elder Long smiled easily, “It’s all thanks to Young Master, this is a method that even Master and Old Slave had never thought of.”
“What kind of method is this? I dare to pull the emperor down by giving up my life.”
Chen Dong gave a bitter laugh.
Although he had won against Chen Yu Fei, his reputation had also been greatly damaged.
Of course, Chen Dong didn’t care too much about this.
What he really cared about was the thoughts and grievances in Gu Qingying’s heart.
There were thousands of people in the world, but not as many as one.
“When the dust settles on this matter, I should explain to Xiaoying properly.” Chen Dong sighed softly, “She has endured too much aggravation for my sake.”
Time slowly passed.
Qin Ye also called afterwards, and his tone was much more relaxed than before.
But the two Zhang Chu families had not yet stopped.
The intention was to push things to the point where they could not be contained, so that Chen Yufei could not lift her head up completely.
This was also Qin Ye’s intention.
Chen Dong did not object, on the contrary, he chose to approve.
When Chen Yufei had counted on him, he had not thought of showing mercy.
He was not a saintly mother, and when someone had dealt him a death blow, he would not be able to resist successfully and then leave in a dignified manner by reciting the phrase “become Buddha on earth”.
When dealing with an enemy, one should deal with them as if they were an enemy.
Chen Yu Fei is not as straightforward as Chen Tiansheng Chen Tianyang.
Now after saving the day, it was a good thing that he wanted to keep Chen Yufei from standing up.
It was not as if he was going to kill the heir. The Chen family could not take him according to its rules.
As night fell.
The ferment of public opinion on the internet had reached its peak.
About Chen Yufei’s background, it was constantly exploded, causing all netizens to be in an uproar.
It even stunned the fans who were originally fanatical and die-hard about Chen Yufei.
The original inspirational persona paradigm has now collapsed with a bang.
The public outcry was not just that.
Under the deliberate guidance of two giants in the entertainment industry, Zhang Chu, a steady stream of water forces poured into the major media channels, bringing up a wave of “Chen Yu Fei out of the entertainment industry”.
When this news surfaced in all the major media outlets.
The big stone in Chen Dong’s heart finally settled.
Chen Yu Fei …… is finally unable to continue to mix with the entertainment industry.
“Young master, look at the weibo!”
After dinner, Long Lao ran into Chen Dong’s office with great enthusiasm.
Chen Dong clicked on the weibo and was instantly a bit stunned.
The hot search about Chen Yufei’s background had fallen to the second position somehow.
In its place, was Chen Yufei’s apology!
He clicked in.
Not only were there text pictures in the hot search, but there was also a video that Chen Yufei had personally recorded.
And the content of the video made Chen Dong ecstatic.
Throughout the video, Chen Yu Fei tearfully apologised, not only telling how that night was actually a misunderstanding, but also tearfully announcing her permanent retirement from the entertainment industry.
Quitting the entertainment industry was something Chen Dong had expected, and it was also the outcome he wanted.
But Chen Yu Fei’s public account of that night being a misunderstanding undoubtedly helped him clear all suspicions.
After all, it was the person involved, the “victim”, who said it herself!
Even if there were people with bad intentions in the internet, they would not be able to make a fuss about this matter.
Chen Dong exhaled heavily, got up, grabbed his phone and headed out of his study.
“Young master, what are you doing there?”
Long Lao was stunned for a moment, he had told Chen Dong this news because he wanted to make Chen Dong happy.
But now Chen Dong was in a fire and fury, he obviously did not look happy.
“I’ll go and explain to Little Shadow, with this video around, I’m sure I can untie her heart.”
Chen Dong was happy like a child and stretched out tiredly, “I can finally get a good night’s sleep tonight, I don’t have to sleep on the sofa anymore.”
In the bedroom, it is dimly lit.
Only on the bedside, the table lamp emitted a dim light.
Gu Qingying was leaning on the bed, her tired and haggard face was not the least bit sleepy, and her eyes were covered with blood.
The look of despondency and sadness was heartbreaking.
In fact, this was how she had spent almost all of her long nights over the past three days or so.
She was suppressing, she was controlling, she was holding back.
Because she knew that what had happened was fatal to Chen Dong.
At this time, if she couldn’t hold back, she would only put Chen Dong in a more and more desperate situation.
Even his own wife would not help him, so who else could he help?
She was Chen Dong’s wife, and what was left of her sanity let her know that this was the time to stand quietly behind Chen Dong and support!
She knew how Chen Dong had gotten to where he was today.
It had taken not only sweat, but even blood.
She loved Chen Dong, so she preferred to wait for three years in agony.
What’s more, she was unwilling to stab her beloved man in the back at this critical moment, making everything Chen Dong had done come to naught.
Gu Qingying really couldn’t do it!
She also knew how Chen Dong was, but what Chen Yufei had blown up was ironclad evidence.
She didn’t want to doubt it, but she was a woman, and she was still so sensitive about what had happened.
This nagging emotion, as if it were a sharp knife, ruthlessly stirred every nerve in her, causing her immense pain.
Once Chen Dong’s vows to her, the aftershocks seemed to be in her ears.
Was it true what he had said at that time?
Such thoughts surrounded Gu Qingying’s mind all the time.
The door opened.
But Gu Qingying did not move a muscle.
Because she knew that in the past few days, the only person who could enter her room, apart from Fan Lu, was Chen Dong.
And now, it was impossible for Fan Lu to come to her room.
“Little Ying ……”
Looking at Gu Qingying on the bed, Chen Dong’s heart ached terribly.
He guiltily walked over to the bed and knelt down, revealing a gentle smile, “Thank you!”
“I’m fine, go about your business.” Gu Qingying forced a smile as she looked at Chen Dong.
But the bloodshot eyes and haggard face made Chen Dong’s heart cut like a knife.
The old Gu Qingying was absolutely beautiful!
Because of this incident, she had become like this.
Chen Dong suddenly slapped his face.
It was a powerful slap.
Gu Qingying’s face changed greatly: “What are you doing?”
While exclaiming in shock, she was busy raising her hand to lightly rub Chen Dong’s face.
Even so, the red fingerprints quickly stood out.
“I’m sorry for putting you through so much these past few days.” Chen Dong was incomparably guilty.
He had promised to give this woman in front of him happiness!
“It’s alright, I’m really alright.” Gu Qingying said as she heartily rubbed Chen Dong’s face while shaking her head.
Chen Dong handed his mobile phone to Gu Qingying.
As he said that, his right thumb tapped the play button of Chen Yufei’s apology video.
Gu Qingying was instantly lost in thought.
She hadn’t paid attention to the media channels for a few hours.
As Chen Yufei’s apology sounded in the video, it slowly rang out.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body couldn’t help but tremble, and the jade hand that was stroking Chen Dong’s face slowly slipped away.
She took the phone, her reddened eyes staring dead on.
Gradually, her eyes became a little blurred, dripping with crystalline waves of water.
And the delicate body was trembling faintly.
When the video was shown, after Chen Yu Fei finished recounting the events of that night.
Two lines of tears slipped silently out of the corners of Gu Qingying’s eyes.
Her body also trembled even harder.
But she continued to hold back and finish watching the video.
From the beginning to the end, Chen Dong was silently watching from the sidelines.
He was in no hurry.
As long as he could get Gu Qingying’s forgiveness and untie her heart, he was willing to wait even if it took even longer.
The video ended.
In the bedroom, it returned to silence.
Gu Qingying did not move a muscle, and tears could not stop pouring out of her eyes.
Chen Dong took out a tissue and gently wiped the corners of Gu Qingying’s eyes, while softly saying, “Actually ……”
Before the words left his mouth, the Gu Qingying in front of him suddenly threw back his head and let out a loud cry.
This scene scared Chen Dong for a moment.
Not waiting to react.
Gu Qingying suddenly jumped into Chen Dong’s arms and howled.
“Woooooooo …… you B*****d, you big fool, I knew it, I knew you weren’t like that, woooooooooo …… do you know, these days, how hard it was for me? Ooooooooooo …… do you know, I’ve been on the verge of collapse countless times these past few days ……”
Listening to Gu Qingying’s bawling.
Feeling the trembling delicate body in his arms.
In this instant, all of Chen Dong’s thoughts were gone.
It was as if his heart had melted.
He gently wrapped his arms around Gu Qingying’s body and gently patted Gu Qingying’s back with his right hand.
In a soft voice, he said soothingly, “There, there, it’s okay, everything is okay.”
He knew that the image of Gu Qingying crying like a child in front of him was all a cathartic outburst after extreme emotional repression.
Only when it was completely cathartic would Gu Qingying’s entire being be at ease.
Gu Qingying cried and cried, while pinching her fist and pounding on Chen Dong’s chest.
Chen Dong smiled gently, patting Gu Qingying’s back while soothing, not caring at all about the pink fist on his chest.
Time slowly passed.
In the bedroom, Gu Qingying’s bawling was echoing.
Three days of repression and aggression, at this point with clarification, Gu Qingying completely vented out.
Gradually, the crying became less.
Gu Qingying slowly pulled herself out of Chen Dong’s arms, her eyes red and swollen, her teary eyes glancing at the wet clothes on Chen Dong’s chest.
“It’s got you all wet.”
Chen Dong looked down at the wet clothes and shrugged with a smile, “Yeah, it’s not lightly wet.”
Gu Qingying’s pretty face flushed, and she instantly thought back that there was some ambiguity in this statement.
She hurriedly grabbed the tissue in Chen Dong’s hand and wiped away the tears at the corners of her eyes.
“Did I look ugly when I cried? Like a spilled child, will you dislike me?”
“You will always be a child in my heart, the kind you hold in the palm of your hand.”
Chen Dong smiled gently, with such a wife, how could he still be disgusted?
Gu Qingying rolled her eyes and snapped, “Don’t say things like that, I don’t know if you’ll say it to another girl.”
Chen Dong immediately conceded, “I swear to God, if I ……”
The words did not come out.
Gu Qingying suddenly raised her jade hand to cover Chen Dong’s mouth and said incomparably serious, “I don’t need you to swear, you just need to know, don’t let me down and love you.”
Chen Dong gave a gentle smile.
“Go to sleep.”
Gu Qingying said in a soft voice.
Chen Dong let out a long breath at that moment, finally the dust had settled.
The only desk lamp, too, was turned off.
In the bedroom, it was pitch black.
Perhaps it was because he had cried too hard just now.
Gu Qingying was lying in Chen Dong’s arms and soon fell asleep.
Feeling Gu Qingying’s steady and soothing breathing in his arms.
In the darkness, Chen Dong revealed a sweet smile.
He slowly lowered his head and nodded a kiss on Gu Qingying’s forehead.
“Little fool, thank you, you are the only one in this life.”
Perhaps the kiss had disturbed Gu Qingying’s sound sleep.
A wooing sound came out of Gu Qingying’s mouth and she turned sideways, burying her face into Chen Dong’s arms, as if she was a small cat.
