Winner Takes All Chapter 39-40

Chapter 39

Hesitating for a moment, Chen Dong temporarily suppressed the thought of telling Gu Qingying immediately.

He glanced at Gu Qingying, who was concentrating on driving, and said with a smile.

“Xiaoying, I want to give you a surprise in a while.”

Gu Qingying was his friend, and there were many things that should be told as they were.

He didn’t want to let Gu Qingying hold a trace of sympathy in her heart when she faced him because of this month’s experience.

“Surprise?”

Gu Qingying raised an eyebrow, but did not pursue the question, but smiled and nodded: “Yes.”

The car drove into the car park of Lijin Hospital.

After getting out of the car, Gu Qingying called for Chen Dong to help her carry her things.

After opening the luggage, Chen Dong was frozen.

A large pile of fruits and supplements stuffed the entire suitcase to the brim.

“The first time I came to see auntie, I can’t be rude, I bought some random things, and I don’t know if auntie will like them.” Gu Qingying said with a smile.

Chen Dong’s heart gave a vicious twitch.

Gu Qingying’s joking remark was like a needle that stabbed him in the heart.

He knew his mother’s, even if Gu Qingying came empty-handed, his mother would definitely be happy.

In contrast to Gu Qingying’s solemnity, there were people who had never visited for three years, and who even said “deadbeat mother” under their breath.

One was a friend, the other was an ex-wife, the difference between the two was worlds apart.

“What’s wrong?”

Gu Qing Ying asked.

“Nothing, you’ve bought too much!” Chen Dong squeezed out a smile, carried most of his things and walked towards the hospital.

And Gu Qingying, carrying two bags of fruit, followed behind, saying urgently, “Chen Dong, wait for me, I, I’m a bit nervous, you come in with me.”

In the ward.

Li Lan was chatting happily with Fan Lu.

Since she had Fan Lu with her, Li Lan’s condition seemed to have recovered much faster, and her face was much rosier.

Li Lan loves Fan Lu from the bottom of her heart and treats her as if she were her own daughter.

Fan Lu also felt this, so she took even more care of Li Lan.

Chen Dong pushed open the door, just in time to see the two chatting happily.

“Mr. Chen.”

Fan Lu hurriedly got up and rushed over to help Chen Dong carry his things.

“Dong’er, why did you buy so many things?” Li Lan wondered.

All these years, she had lived a hard life, and even after Chen Dong had money, she had not enjoyed anything because of her illness.

She was a little distressed at Chen Dong buying so many things.

How much money did this have to cost the child?

“My friend bought it.”

Chen Dong smiled and called back to Gu Qingying.

Gu Qingying timidly walked into the ward and gave Chen Dong a sidelong glance of anger.

I told you to wait and wait, but you had to come in first yourself, and now you are making people so nervous.

However, she quickly revealed a smile, “Hello aunty, I am Chen Dong’s friend, Gu Qingying.”

“Hello, how are you.”

Li Lan smiled amiably, but when she turned her eyes to look at Chen Dong, she changed her face, “Chen Dong, why don’t you help Miss Gu carry her things?”

This scene amused Gu Qingying with a puff of laughter, and her nervous mood relaxed a lot.

She directly shoved the fruit into Chen Dong’s hand, then walked to Li Lan with a smile on her face, “It’s still Auntie who knows how to hurt people.”

Li Lan was full of smiles, looking at Gu Qing Ying, she always felt somehow familiar: “Miss Gu, haven’t I seen you somewhere before?”

Chen Dong put down the fruit and was about to explain.

But Gu Qingying suddenly said, “No, this is also the first time I’ve seen Auntie.”

Chen Dong glanced at Gu Qingying in dismay.

In her four years at university, Gu Qingying had seen her mother a lot, and she had been a bridesmaid at her wedding three years ago.

Her mother was too old to remember Gu Qingying for a while because she hadn’t seen her for three years.

How could Gu Qingying still not admit it?

Li Lan smiled and nodded, not pursuing the matter any further.

She said to Fan Lu, “Xiao Lu, please pour a glass of water for Miss Gu.”

“Okay Auntie.” Fan Lu busied herself, not only pouring water for Gu Qingying, but also taking out some fruits and taking them outside to be washed and prepared for hospitality.

The way she was busy was very satisfying to see Chen Dong.

Moreover, he could also see that his mother was also very satisfied with Fan Lu.

It was Gu Qingying, on the contrary, who looked at Fan Lu and could not help but frown.

However, in an instant, Gu Qingying was smiling happily, taking Li Lan’s hand and chatting with concern.

Chen Dong sat at the side, smiling at Gu Qingying and Li Lan, who were chatting happily, and did not disturb them.

Soon after, Fan Lu also came back with fruits.

The three women were chatting happily.

Gu Qingying was not the least bit pretentious and easy-going, and even took the apple from Fan Lu’s hand and personally helped Li Lan peel it, and cut it into small pieces to make it easier for Li Lan to eat.

Soon, an hour passed.

Because it was too late, Chen Dong first proposed that he had to leave the hospital.

Gu Qingying nodded and said to Li Lan with a smile, “Auntie you take good care of yourself, I will visit you often from now on.”

“Fine, fine.”

Li Lan nodded and said to Chen Dong, “Dong’er, it’s getting dark, remember to send Miss Gu home.”

“Got it mum.”

Chen Dong nodded his head.

After walking out of the ward with Gu Qingying, Chen Dong finally couldn’t help but ask in a low voice, “By the way, why didn’t you tell my mother just now that you and I are old classmates and that you were my bridesmaid?”

“Big man, thick-headed to the core.”

Gu Qingying gave Chen Dong a white look, “Auntie can be stimulated in this condition now? I admitted to being your classmate and being a bridesmaid, didn’t I make her get emotional and think of you and Nan Nan?”

Chen Dong was frozen.

If Gu Qingying hadn’t reminded him, he really wouldn’t have thought of this.

Before he could regain his senses, Gu Qingying’s odd question suddenly rang in his ears.

“By the way, you still haven’t told me, who is that Fan Lu who is taking care of Auntie?”

Chen Dong raised his eyebrows, “The nanny hired for my mother.”

“It’s really a nanny?” Gu Qingying was a little wary and muttered, “Then why do I feel that Auntie is treating her particularly well? When we talked just now, Auntie said more to her than she did to me.”

Chen Dong was speechless, Gu Qingying was too calculating, right?

But he still explained, “Maybe it’s because Fan Lu takes good care of her, and she’s quite sympathetic in her own right, my mother should have learned about her.”

“What is it?” Gu Qingying asked.

Chen Dong shook his head and did not speak.

Fan Lu was a girl, and girls loved beauty the most, so if they were not forced to, would they get their hands covered in calluses?

This was considered Fan Lu’s personal privacy, he still needed to respect it.

“Che …… don’t say it if you don’t say it.”

Gu Qingying beamed, “It’s auntie’s nanny anyway, so it’s fine.”

“What’s okay?” Chen Dong asked in confusion.

Gu Qingying’s eyes dodged for a moment and she was about to digress from the topic.

Suddenly, a startled cry rang out.

“Qingying?!”

Both of them were stunned at the same time and raised their eyes to look.

Not far away, Wang Nan Nan was carrying a thermos bucket and was looking at them both in astonishment.

Chapter 40

The air, it was as if it had frozen.

Gu Qingying’s pretty face changed, she did not expect to meet Wang Nan Nan in the hospital.

Chen Dong, on the other hand, was full of indifference, his gaze cast a sidelong glance at the thermos bucket in Wang Nan Nan’s hand, full of melancholy.

For three years, even if his mother was seriously ill, Wang Nan Nan had never worried for a moment, but now she was taking good care of her mother.

In the end, at least before the divorce, his mother was also Wang Nan Nan’s mother.

However, Chen Dong also looked at it from the perspective that the Wang family had never included him and his mother as family members, and it was only natural that Wang Nan Nan would take his mother’s life-saving money back to her mother’s family to buy a house for her brother and not worry about his mother.

Wang Nan Nan looked at Gu Qingying in amazement, her mind a little confused.

If it wasn’t for this chance encounter at the hospital, she would never have known that Gu Qingying had returned to China.

What was even more unacceptable to her was that Gu Qingying was still with Chen Dong.

She walked up to Chen Dong and Gu Qingying step by step and asked, “You, when did you come back? Why didn’t you tell me?”

“Nan Nan, I only came back yesterday.” Gu Qingying said.

Wang Nan Nan’s eyes swished red and she raised her hand to point at Chen Dong’s nose and said to Gu Qingying, “Then why were you with him?”

“Nan Nan ……” Gu Qingying’s pretty face sank down, “I am friends with you, with Chen Dong, what is wrong with me visiting Chen Dong’s mother when I return to China?”

“Of course it’s not right!”

Wang Nan Nan’s eyes were red and full of aggression, still gritting her teeth and stubbornly holding her head high, “I’m your friend, because of me, you got to know Chen Dong!”

In her heart, this kind of approach by Gu Qingying was betrayal!

Quietly returning to her country, but coming together with Chen Dong.

What was this?

“Have you said enough? If you’ve said enough, we’ll leave.” Chen Dong had a cold face, not wanting to argue with Wang Nan Nan half a sentence, it was a waste of time.

He pulled up Gu Qingying’s hand and was about to swipe past Wang Nan Nan.

But this scene instantly caused Wang Nan Nan to explode.

On what grounds?

Why would the man I left walk with my former bestie?

“You let go of me!”

Wang Nan Nan opened Chen Dong and Gu Qingying’s hands with one hand, and then, backhandedly slapped Chen Dong’s face.

Slap!

“Wang Nan Nan, what are you mad about?”

Gu Qingying was startled and touched Chen Dong’s cheek heartily, “Let’s go, we won’t argue with her.”

But, Wang Nan Nan was as mad as hell, and unrelentingly tugged Gu Qingying’s hand.

“Didn’t you come to see his mother? I’m also your friend, my mother is also sick, why don’t you take a look at my mother?”

Saying that, as if she was mad, she forcefully dragged Gu Qingying towards Zhang Xiuzhi’s ward.

Bang!

The ward door was pushed open by Wang Nan Nan.

Wang De Zhang Xiuzhi and Wang Hao all froze.

As soon as they saw Wang Nan Nan with tears in her eyes, the three of them were immediately confused.

But when they saw Gu Qingying who came in with them, especially Chen Dong.

Wang Hao immediately exploded, “Chen Dong, how dare you fucking bully my sister? I’ll kill you today!”

“Little Hao, he’s bullying your sister, beat him out for me!” Zhang Xiuzhi’s face was also full of cross colour, and her features were almost twisted.

Seeing Wang Hao rushing towards her, Gu Qingying was so frightened that she lost her face.

Just then, Chen Dong stepped forward, stopping Gu Qingying behind her and facing Wang Hao, he said angrily.

“You punk, you want to fight me?”

Wang Hao subconsciously stopped where he was, he was a head shorter than Chen Dong and had been pampered since he was a child, so he really didn’t dare to make a move with Chen Dong.

He dragged Wang Nan Nan over with him and asked, “Sister, did this wimp bully you?”

Wang Nan Nan could not hold back her tears and sobbed uncontrollably.

This scene saw Wang De Zhang Xiuzhi gnashing her teeth and raging with anger.

Zhang Xiuzhi even picked up a pillow and smashed it directly towards Chen Dong.

“Bastard! Chen Dong, you son of a bitch, bullying my daughter, who’s ancestral grave has my Wang family plowed? When Nan Nan married you, a phoenix man, so that you could climb high above our Wang family, is this how you repay her?”

Chen Dong’s face was as cold as frost as he stared coldly at the frenzied Zhang Xiuzhi.

Behind him, Gu Qingying’s brows were furrowed and her face was furious.

High climbing?

Marrying down?

Gu Qingying was a witness to Chen Dong and Wang Nan Nan’s journey from love to marriage to divorce, and Zhang Xiuzhi’s evil rant was a bloodbath!

“And you, Gu Qingying! I simply didn’t expect you to be this kind of person, where exactly did my Nan Nan offend you? Why did you join hands with Chen Dong, a rural person, to bully her?”

Zhang Xiuzhi whistled harshly, her chest heaving violently.

Wang De on the other hand had a gloomy face and fierce eyes, as if he could not wait to eat Chen Dong and Gu Qingying in one bite.

Pfft!

Chen Dong suddenly burst out laughing.

His eyes glared at Zhang Xiuzhi harshly, “Zhang Xiuzhi, are you a dog? Bite whoever you catch? Who exactly is bullying who, are you blind?”

“You, who are you talking to? How dare you talk to me like that?” Zhang Xiuzhi’s eyes glared and she exclaimed.

“I’m talking to you!”

Chen Dong said coldly.

In the past, because of Wang Nan Nan, he had been tolerant of the Wang family and backed down every step of the way.

But now that the marriage had been divorced, why should he continue to put up with it?

“Chen Dong! You shut up! She’s my mother!”

Wang Nan Nan cried and stomped her foot fiercely, “You, you’re a bastard! And you, Gu Qingying you’re a green tea, you guys, you just agreed on this a long time ago!”

The reason why she reacted so strongly was not only because of Gu Qingying’s relationship with her, she had actually gone with Chen Dong instead of telling her back home.

What was even more crucial was that she knew that Chen Dong had divorced her and was deliberately setting it up!

And now this scene made Wang Nan Nan even more certain of the suspicion in her heart.

Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled.

The anger that had been pent up in her chest completely exploded.

She stepped out from behind Chen Dong and looked at Wang Nan Nan angrily, “Wang Nan Nan, I really don’t know where the hell your arrogance comes from?”

“High and proud? Oh, I’ll be condescending.”

Wang Nan Nan pearled, as if she was a victim, stubbornly tilted her head and pointed at Chen Dong: “He, is a loser, a phoenix man, a piece of trash that I threw away, since you are willing to pick up trash, then go ahead, I don’t care!”

Slap!

The sound of the slap was crisp and loud.

In the room, several people were all frozen.

Gu Qingying’s beautiful face was full of frost, even with her family upbringing, she could not help but fling this slap at this moment.

“This slap was delivered by me for Chen Dong!” Gu Qingying said coldly.

Chen Dong was stunned for a moment, and his heart fluttered fiercely.

Following closely, Gu Qingying swept past Wang De Zhang Xiuzhi and Wang Hao and snorted, “Your Wang family, where on earth did you get the arrogance? Just because you hold a city account? Just because you think Chen Dong is climbing high?”

“When the parents are eccentric and good looking, when the younger brother is a waste of time, and Wang Nan Nan, you’re a brother-supporting demon, your family are all oddballs!”

A cold, harsh snort echoed through the ward.

Gu Qingying knew everything about Chen Dong and the Wang family and had been heartbroken, facing the Wang family’s brutal unreasonableness, she could never let Chen Dong suffer even if she could endure it herself.

In her heart, Chen Dong’s aggravation was already enough.

Even her own mother’s life-saving money had been taken by Wang Nan Nan to buy a house for her brother, how much further must Chen Dong be made to retreat?

“What exactly did Chen Dong do to your Wang family? He topped every subject in his four years of university and got scholarships, and he’s rubbish?”

“He graduated three years ago and is now the vice president of a real estate company, while what else does your Wang family have but a city account? Who has climbed higher than who?”

“He has been married to Wang Nan Nan for three years, helping your family in various ways, how much of the money he earned was taken back to your family by Wang Nan Nan Nan? Even his mother’s life-saving money was eventually taken by Wang Nan Nan to buy Wang Hao’s wedding house, is this the phoenix man in your eyes?”

A series of questions left Wang De Zhang Xiuzhi and Wang Hao dumbfounded.

Wang Nan Nan grabbed her hair with both hands and cried heartbreakingly, “Enough, Gu Qingying, you’re just a shoe picker!”

“Huh!”

Gu Qingying laughed coldly, “You guys think Chen Dong is a broken shoe? A trash? Fine, then I’ll really pick them up!”

Chen Dong looked at Gu Qingying incredulously.

“You Wang family members are leeches hanging on Chen Dong to eat flesh and drink blood, scheming for money and killing people but still shamelessly setting up a pagoda and thinking you are so proud?”

Gu Qingying and Chen Dong’s hands were interlaced and raised as if to demonstrate, “What you don’t want, I want! I like Chen Dong, I just want to be with him, and I’m telling you, I have the ability to make him go straight to the top without having to struggle in this life!”
