Waiting for Ye Linglong to leave.
Only then did Chen Dong rub his nose with a helpless look.
Tian Ai had come to look for me, but I didn’t think it would make the Hong Society all on alert.
Chen Dong let out a bitter laugh, but did not think of telling Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang the truth.
One of the reasons was that he did not want Tian Ai to pursue the matter further at the Mountain River a*sociation.
At this point, if Tian Ai really found out and returned to the Gu family, it would only put everyone in the Gu family in a dangerous whirlpool.
The second was also because he felt that there was no harm in doing so.
Since that force had not succeeded once, and Tian Ai had been able to find out about the Hong Society’s movements, that force must have noticed too.
It was only a matter of time before a second a*sa*sination was carried out at the Hong Society.
The Hong Society raised the alert to top level, just in time to prevent a possible follow-up a*sa*sination.
And with Yuan Yigang sitting on the sidelines, he might even be able to catch a hint of the a*sa*sination.
It was only by exposing the forces hiding in the shadows to the light of day that they could completely turn from being pa*sive to being proactive.
Outside Chinatown, the crowd is swarming with activity.
In a nondescript corner outside the Shan He Club, a man in a long, wide grey trench coat stopped and looked down at a newspaper.
It wasn’t long before he said in a deep, puzzled voice.
“Why, is there suddenly so much martial law?”
Putting away the newspaper, the man lowered the brim of his hat and turned away.
Everything seemed uneventful, unobtrusive amidst the flow of people.
The Gu family villa.
Long Lao had finally finished reading all the information.
His face was full of exhaustion, but he was still quietly listening to Tian Ai’s account in front of him.
He wanted to get to the bottom of it, not a single trace of it could be missed.
The young master’s life was at stake!
It was also about what he should follow up with to deal with it.
At the side, Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing were also accompanying Gu Qingying, left and right.
Gu Qingying was still very weak and emaciated, but she was much better than before.
There was also a hint of sparkle in her eyes.
This was also the first time she really understood the whole thing.
“That’s the way it is.”
After Tian Ai finished, she shrugged her shoulders and looked at Elder Long.
What she recounted was also the same as when she had recounted it to Gu Guohua before.
The matter of Hong Hui fishing for people was still left unsaid.
After listening to it, Elder Long frowned and pondered.
The three members of Gu Qingying’s family, on the other hand, looked at Elder Long expectantly.
The Gu family was at its wit’s end.
Mobilizing all the power of the Gu family, even including the power of the Tian family and some of their lineage friends, they were unable to investigate who was actually trying to kill Chen Dong, much less investigate Chen Dong’s current situation.
“Elder Long ……”
Gu Qingying spoke in a low voice.
Long Lao raised his head and glanced at Gu Qingying, squeezing out a smile on his tired face.
“Young Madam, don’t worry, old slave will go out now.”
Not waiting for the crowd to react.
Elder Long then got up and left.
Leaving Gu Qingying and the others with faces full of dismay, they looked at each other.
“Little Shadow, is this really to help?”
Tian Ai was a bit taken by surprise, at least after all the talk, he had to give his opinion, right?
Sulking and just leaving?
“Now we can only hope that Elder Long will get something out of it.” Gu Guohua sighed softly, obviously responding to Tian Ai’s query as well.
This time when Elder Long left, it was three days.
Gu Qingying and the others didn’t know exactly where Elder Long had gone and what he had gone to do.
Even when Gu Qing Ying tried to contact Elder Long, he was unable to do so.
It was as if, Elder Long had disappeared.
Nearly ten o’clock.
Chen Dong was sweating profusely and panting as he lay down on the bed.
Beans of sweat flowed down his cheeks.
His eyes, however, were incomparably determined.
“I’ll definitely be able to stand up, I’ll definitely still be able to stand up ……”
Chen Dong murmured, bracing his hands on the bed board, trying to sit up and continue his exercise.
His body was now able to withstand less intense workouts.
Being in a coma for a week had weakened his body to a great extent.
Even now that he had lost the feeling in his legs, he hadn’t thought about slacking off on his exercise.
Ye Linglong pushed the door and walked in.
When she saw Chen Dong, she couldn’t help but see a strange look in her eyes and was a little lost in thought.
Is this man …… trying to “come back”?
“It’s so late, you’re still awake?”
Chen Dong’s voice pulled Ye Linglong back to reality.
“Aren’t you too? Still exercising at this late hour.”
Ye Linglong raised her eyebrows and gently walked to Chen Dong’s side, taking a tissue to wipe the sweat on Chen Dong’s forehead, “You have just woken up not long ago now, your body is very weak, too much intensity of exercise will not be good for you instead, you have to do it gradually.”
Chen Dong calmly took the tissue from Ye Linglong’s hand and wiped it by himself while asking, “Why are you here so late?”
Ye Linglong froze for a moment.
Her right hand, which had been taken away by Chen Dong, gently twisted the tissue in the air, and then slowly put it down.
She stared at Chen Dong and gave an odd smile, “What? Are you still afraid that I will do something untoward to you?”
Chen Dong: “……”
It had to be said that Ye Linglong was truly stunningly beautiful.
Any adornment, when placed on her body, appeared to be a kind of blasphemy.
Even a knitted brows and a smile, pretending to be eccentric, was a million times more charming.
“After all, you can’t walk around right now, and I can well understand your fear of me having any thoughts about you.”
Ye Linglong clasped her hands to her chest, her jade fingers gently cupping her chin with a bad smile.
Chen Dong put down the tissue: “If you keep talking to me like this about this topic, I’m going to scream, Hong Hui Red Stick, the real granddaughter of the ancestral elder of the Yuan generation, entering a man’s room in the middle of the night and wanting to commit an act of misconduct, this is a big news.”
“You ……” Ye Linglong panicked, “You shameless!”
“You were the one who moved the ‘hand’ first.” Chen Dong’s calm words.
Ye Linglong was instantly a little angry.
This guy, a little better, the temper of flocking the clock to make people explode was back!
Ye Linglong was secretly exasperated, but still said, “I couldn’t sleep, I was a bit worried about you, so I came here specially to take a look, now that the Shanhe Hall is under martial law, it has been three days, there is no movement at all, it would be too strange for that woman not to come all the time.”
Chen Dong was helpless in his heart.
It would be strange if there could be any breeze, coming over the wall to Tian Ai, people are here to find me ah.
Seeing Chen Dong silent, Ye Linglong waved his hand: “Forget it, you have a good rest, do not exercise too hard, I’ll go back to bed first, stay long, big brother Yi Gang, probably have to shamelessly nag again.”
Looking at Ye Linglong leaving.
Chen Dong frowned and lay back on the bed.
Yes, how long has it been since I pa*sed out, since now?
Those people who wanted to kill me should have come over long ago, right?
The Hong Society can hide from the whole city’s worldly families and gentry, so it shouldn’t be able to hide from those people, right?
Just as he was thinking, a sound of breaking wind suddenly sounded in the courtyard outside.
A miserable cry of pain suddenly rang out.
Chen Dong’s face changed drastically and he sat up with a start, scrambling to drag himself across the wheelchair.
And at that moment, the fist-to-fist sounds of wrestling already rang out from outside.
The killers …… are really here!
The cold light was blazing.
The black shadows wielded long and short swords, whistling and slashing down on Ye Linglong like a storm.
Ye Linglong was unarmed and dodged in fear.
But her right leg was already dripping with blood.
She had never expected that the killer would arrive quietly when she was still worried about him.
And he was the first to strike.
If she hadn’t been so skilled, she would have been the victim of the killer’s blade.
There was a flash of cold light in front of her eyes.
Ye Linglong’s torso trembled and her pupils suddenly tightened.
In her line of sight, the long knife was slashing across her neck.
As she drew herself back, Ye Linglong raised both hands to stand against the long knife in the air.
However, her right leg was injured by a dart and this retreat caused a sharp pain.
The pain caused Ye Linglong’s eyebrows to knit and her body stumbled.
She didn’t wait for her hands to hold the long knife in place.
The black shadow kicked her in the abdomen.
Ye Linglong flew backwards and landed on the ground, her stunningly beautiful face swooshed to pale.
She covered her stomach and froze, unable to stand up, it felt like her internal organs were all tangled up.
An icy cold voice echoed in her ears.
Ye Linglong looked up and saw the black shadow holding double swords in his hands, already arriving close to him.
The long sword in his hand was even raised high above his head, slashing down angrily.
“Are you going to die?”
Ye Linglong looked desolate and desperate.
It was a close call.
A gla*s of water swept through the air and struck heavily on top of the black shadow’s long sword, shattering the gla*s with a sound.
At the same time, the huge force of the impact also caused the Black Shadow to be caught off guard and his long blade was deflected.
The cold, sharp blade grazed Ye Linglong’s side and fell, cutting off a strand of green silk.
In the courtyard, there was abrupt dead silence.
A cold killing intent surged darkly.
Ye Linglong froze.
The black shadow came too suddenly, striking with a decisive and ruthless move that would kill her.
She was ready to meet her death.
But she survived!
Suddenly, Ye Linglong’s gaze looked in the direction where the water cup flew from.
He …… saved me?
For a moment, Ye Linglong was in a bit of a trance, her heart inexplicably seemed to be hit hard by something.
Chen Dong is sitting in his wheelchair, his expression is cold, his eyes are narrowed, and a monstrous killing intent and anger is surging in his eyes.
He gazed at the black shadow as if he were a ferocious beast.
“Everything I am now is thanks to you, and you still come to seek death?”
A cold killing intent echoed through the courtyard.
However, the black shadow no longer paid attention to Ye Linglong and slowly turned around, walking towards Chen Dong with a sword.
“I have come to kill you, not to seek death.”
Chen Dong’s eyes suddenly opened and a terrifying cold aura burst out, “Do you think that because I am reduced to a wheelchair, I cannot kill you?”
These words instantly made the black shadow’s heart wary and his footsteps abruptly stopped.
The next second.
The Black Shadow threw a dart violently.
The dart pierced into Chen Dong’s right calf and blood spurted out like a fountain.
Ye Linglong’s face changed drastically as she struggled to get up and stumbled to run towards Chen Dong.
But she had just run two steps.
The black shadow turned around and kicked her in the stomach with a bang, sending her flying once again.
When she landed on the ground, Ye Linglong’s features were twisted in pain.
The twisting pain that entwined her internal organs made her body tremble.
The black shadow, on the other hand, was frowning and staring hard at Chen Dong.
A pair of eyes were shadowy as if they were poisonous snakes.
From the beginning to the end, Chen Dong’s expression did not show the slightest hint of pain.
Obviously, the legs had really lost consciousness.
Otherwise, how could a normal person have such a tough stoicism?
Even if one wanted to forcefully pretend, it would be impossible for one’s facial expression to be flawless.
The black shadow’s eyebrows stretched out.
A cold laugh escaped.
“It seems that you are indeed crippled, just in time, I will give you another ride on the road.”
Both hands waved the long and short swords, in the air, bringing up two pieces of cold aura.
A monstrous killing intent was declared out.
“Chen Dong, retreat back, retreat back!”
Ye Linglong’s face changed greatly, and her eyes turned red in a flash.
But out of sight, Chen Dong was sitting in his wheelchair, not moving.
An ice-cold voice suddenly rang out.
“If I back off, you’ll die!”
Ye Linglong’s body shook, and a loud “boom” sounded in her head.
Seeing the black shadow rushing towards Chen Dong, she ignored the severe pain in her internal organs and shouted, lunging at the black shadow like a madman.
The black shadow rushing towards Chen Dong let out an explosive shout.
He turned around violently, and the long knife in his hand whistled, cutting down directly towards Ye Linglong.
Facing the long knife, Ye Linglong did not have the slightest fear, her beautiful face filled with the determination to die.
Even if she could fight for one more second ……
Chen Dong bellowed, “Yuan Yigang, still not doing anything?”
The door of the room not far away opened wide.
A long blade, sweeping through the air, whistled and flew directly towards the black shadow.
The speed was as fast as lightning.
In the blink of an eye, it arrived in front of the black shadow.
The black shadow let out a cry of alarm, and his gaze froze.
In a flash of lightning, he instantly made a choice.
Giving up on killing Ye Linglong, he leapt up in the air and drew himself back.
The long knife that was originally chopping at Ye Linglong landed blatantly on top of the long knife flying in the air, exploding a large amount of sparks.
The long knife fell to the ground.
The black shadow also landed firmly on the ground, and his shadowy eyes, with vigilance and scorn, looked towards the open door of the room.
There, in the darkness inside, was a human figure.
Ye Linglong was ecstatic.
“You silly girl, you don’t even want to live when you get mad?”
In the darkness, Yuan Yigang slowly stepped out, with grumbling and reproach.
Ye Linglong had a rapturous smile on the corner of her mouth, but her gaze looked askance at Chen Dong, who was sitting in a wheelchair, without regret.
As Yuan Yigang walked out of the darkness.
A frightened look appeared in the eyes of the vigilant and scornful black shadow at once.
“God of Killers Yuan Yigang, as the leader, you, you come to guard him?”
At this moment, Yuan Yigang’s face was like an explosive thunderstorm that ruthlessly blasted at the Black Shadow’s heart.
He knew that the alert level of the Shanhe Guild Hall had been raised to the highest.
But he never expected that a Chen Dong …… would actually draw the leader of the Hong Society, personally, to guard by his side.
While the black shadow’s heart was beating wildly, he took a step back almost instinctively, his hands tightly gripping his long and short swords.
As Yuan Yigang walked away, he turned his head to look at Chen Dong.
“Thanks for saving Linglong.”
“She was the one who was saving me.” Chen Dong shook his head, “On the contrary, you are really sitting still.”
Yuan Yigang shook his head disdainfully, “It’s just a black dog that broke in, what’s the point of sitting still?”
As he said this, he leaned down and bent over to pick up the long knife on the ground.
From the beginning to the end, his words and actions were as indifferent as usual, not putting the black shadow in his eyes at all.
When the black shadow heard Yuan Yigang call him a black dog, the corners of his eyes twitched a few times.
However, he remained silent in place, his gaze locked onto Chen Dong.
“Don’t look, you can’t kill him.”
Yuan Yigang spoke calmly, “You wounded my sister once with a dart and Chen Dong once, I am the most reasonable person, and I do not bully you, one retribution for another, these two wounds, in return, I respectfully return your slash.”
