“Big fool, why do I feel that you are weird.”
Gu Qingying’s reddened beauty eyes stared intently at Chen Dong.
Who exactly was weird?
Chen Dong casually threw the bottle of An Shen Oral Liquid into the bin and smiled spontaneously, “No, go to sleep, you are pregnant now, you can’t go out at night without saying anything again, at least you have to say hello to me.”
“Alright, got it.”
Gu Qingying nodded and wanted to help Chen Dong lie back on the bed.
But Chen Dong refused, propping himself up on the edge of the bed and lying down on the hospital bed.
As Gu Qingying got into his arms, Chen Dong could clearly notice that Gu Qingying was always consciously avoiding his gaze.
It was as if he was a child who had done something wrong and had a weak heart.
The Gu Qingying in his arms said softly.
“Mm, good night.”
Chen Dong answered calmly, his gaze looking askance into the bin.
The empty bottle of An Shen Oral Liquid could still be vaguely seen.
His gaze flickered, deep and powerful.
How did my Chen Dong’s fate …… get properly arranged by a mysterious person?
The following day.
Dazed Chen Dong woke up.
The familiar smell of disinfectant water poured into his nostrils.
It caused Chen Dong to lose his concentration for a while, staring blankly at the ceiling.
“Young master, you slept for a long time this time.”
Elder Long’s voice rang out.
Chen Dong turned his face sideways, and saw Elder Long sitting on the sofa, looking at a book.
Elder Long looked up and said, “It’s almost twelve o’clock already.”
“I’ve slept for so long?”
Chen Dong’s expression changed slightly as he slowly propped himself up and did so.
The long night’s sleep had left his entire body refreshed at this point.
Subconsciously, he glanced at the bin, which was already empty, having been replaced by the aunt who had cleaned up in the morning.
He swept the ward and wondered, “Where’s Little Shadow?”
“The sun is good, Xiao Lu took young madam out for a walk, rest and recuperation plus the right amount of exercise is good for young madam’s health.”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and glanced outside, the sun was shining.
Instead, a scene from last night came to mind.
Lost in thought, he asked, “Elder Long, during the day I went to Kyoto, did Xiao Ying show any abnormal behaviour?”
Elder Long’s expression changed as he heard that something was wrong with Chen Dong’s tone and asked after him, “Which aspect is Young Master referring to?”
“No matter which aspect.” Chen Dong said.
Elder Long lowered his head and pondered for a moment.
When he raised his head again, he shook it gently, “Young Madam has been in the hospital, Old Slave and Kunlun are looking after Lin Lingdong and Lone Wolf, and Xiao Lu is in charge of looking after Young Madam, and there is not the slightest abnormality.”
Chen Dong murmured in his heart and rubbed his nose, his gaze deepening.
Could it be that …… there was really nothing last night?
But what is it that I witnessed with my own eyes?
On the side, Elder Long’s face was sullen as he stared closely at Chen Dong.
With his experience, how could he not see the difference in Chen Dong at this moment?
After a moment’s hesitation, Elder Long said, “Young master, there is nothing strange about young madam, but why does old slave feel that there is something strange about you instead?”
Chen Dong returned to his senses and shook his head, forcing down the strong doubts in his heart.
Stretching his back, Chen Dong said, “Help me for a moment, let’s go and see Lin Lingdong and Lone Wolf.”
Elder Long did not pursue the matter further.
He got up and helped Chen Dong to sit on the wheelchair and pushed him to see Lin Lingdong and Lone Wolf.
Lone Wolf’s injuries were gradually stabilising.
Lin Lingdong, however, was still in serious condition.
After all, having been entangled in the deep forest for so long and having suffered successive gunshot wounds, in the end, Lin Lingdong’s ability to survive was purely due to his faith.
He survived because of his luck.
Just as Chen Dong did at the time.
However, even today, Chen Dong is still puzzled and amazed that he survived after jumping into the sea that day, after the toxicity had penetrated deep into his blood.
Not only did he survive, but he also had no after-effects, which was the most frightening part.
Even in the eyes of the best doctors in the whole world, it would never be possible!
If Chen Dong had not chosen to disguise his “disability” at that time, but had instead chosen to stand up unharmed, perhaps the subsequent resolution of Chen Tian Fang would not have been so “easy”.
By the time Elder Long pushed Chen Dong back to the maternity ward, it was already 12 noon.
Gu Qingying and Fan Lu had both returned.
They were carrying a large pile of food in their hands.
When she saw Chen Dong, Gu Qingying immediately looked like a scared kitten and hid behind Fan Lu.
And Fan Lu’s expression also became cautious.
Chen Dong swept a glance at the pile of food in paper boxes on the table and instantly understood: “Did you pack them all up outside?”
Fan Lu’s gaze flickered for a moment and she bowed her head, “Yes, yes, Mr. Chen.”
Chen Dong’s face sank.
Gu Qingying, who had been paying attention to Chen Dong’s expression, also came around from behind Fan Lu at this moment, and said with a lowered head, “You can’t blame Sister Xiao Lu, it was because I felt that my mouth was tasteless that I forced Sister Xiao Lu to go to the restaurant with me to pack food, I wanted to eat.”
Chen Dong looked at Gu Qingying’s aggrieved look.
His expression became complicated and his heart tumbled.
For a while, there was silence.
It was Long Lao, who saw Chen Dong’s silence, and his old face revealed a strong suspicion.
What was wrong with the young master after he returned from Kyoto?
Puzzled as he was, Elder Long still stepped forward to round up the situation, “Young master, young madam has an appetite for tasty food, it is fine once or twice, Old slave has asked the doctor about this before.”
“Well, let’s eat then.”
Chen Dong returned to his senses and nodded his head.
Gu Qingying immediately cheered and hurriedly said to Fan Lu, “Sister Xiao Lu, help me, I want to eat the crystal elbow.”
Chen Dong: “……”
Long Lao: “……”
Crystal elbow, just called with taste?
However, Chen Dong was full of thoughts like rotten cotton wool, and he did not care to pay attention to them.
Although pregnant women should eat lightly during pregnancy, but Long Lao was also right, once or twice heavy taste was not a big deal.
The current state of Gu Qingying’s body really needed some fatty supplements as well.
Looking at Gu Qingying eating with her mouth full of oil, Chen Dong was lost in thought for a while.
It was only when a charred brown and oily elbow came close to him and the pungent smell of meat rushed into his nostrils that Chen Dong came back to his senses.
“Big fool, it’s delicious, will you eat it with me?”
Gu Qingying flashed her big eyes, still holding a piece of meat in her mouth, looking at Chen Dong expectantly.
Chen Dong glanced at Elder Long and Fan Lu and smiled spontaneously, “Sure.”
While moving closer to the table, Chen Dong was instructing Fan Lu, “Sister Xiao Lu, forget about Xiao Ying eating like this, Lone Wolf and Lin Lingdong cannot eat this now.”
“Don’t worry Mr. Chen, I know.”
Fan Lu’s expression eased and she responded with a smile.
With that, she led a few of the food prepared for Lin Lingdong and Lone Wolf towards the outside, incidentally carrying away the last remaining crystal elbow.
“Hey, this Xiao Lu, he doesn’t know how to take care of the elderly, a crystal elbow for Kunlun this time na?” Long Lao said with a helpless look on his face.
“Here, Long Lao, why don’t Big Fool and I share some of yours?” Gu Qingying said.
Long Lao waved his hand, “How dare Old Slave rob Young Madam and Young Master of their food, hurry up and find a mother-in-law who can buy Old Slave’s elbows too.”
A few jokes were exchanged, but Long Lao always watched Chen Dong’s expression.
But Chen Dong’s look, always the same layer, even when laughing, eating, but in the eyes of Long Lao, is still depressed.
Young master …… what is wrong?
Suddenly, Chen Dong asked, “Xiao Ying, last night ……”
The words were not finished.
Gu Qingying who was happily eating her elbow, suddenly her delicate body trembled and her expression froze.
The air instantly seemed to freeze.
Long Lao, who was eating, also gave an abrupt pause and glanced at Chen Dong and Gu Qingying in dismay.
What on earth …… had happened?
Sensing Long Lao’s gaze, Chen Dong smiled: “I was going to ask if you still have the tranquilizing oral liquid from last night? The effect is quite good, I still want to drink it at night.”
Gu Qingying’s frozen expression eased as she smiled sweetly, “Of course there is, I will bring it to you later before you want to sleep.”
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying were both somewhat silent, chatting one way or another.
Long Lao, who was caught in the middle, couldn’t mention how hard it was.
The emotions of both of them were almost written on their faces, and Elder Long could see them clearly.
His heart was puzzled and apprehensive, but at the same time, Long Lao did not have the slightest appetite for lunch.
After lunch was over.
Elder Long then used an excuse to push Chen Dong to the corridor outside the ward.
“Young master, what’s wrong?” Elder Long asked with a frown.
“Nothing.” Chen Dong shrugged his shoulders with a look of indifference.
Elder Long’s frown deepened: “Still saying it’s nothing? You and Young Madam have written your emotions on your face, although the old slave is old, he is not so old that he cannot see it.”
“It’s really nothing, if you’re fine, Elder Long, go to Dingtai and keep an eye on the work for me.”
Chen Dong said helplessly.
“Alright then, old slave will go there now.”
Elder Long sighed, he knew that Chen Dong did not want to talk about it, asking him to go to Dingtai to help keep an eye on the work was purely an excuse to pa*s the buck.
Looking at Elder Long as he left, Chen Dong sighed in frustration.
Quietly pushing his wheelchair, he turned around and pushed open the ward.
As soon as he entered, Chen Dong froze in his tracks.
In his sight, Gu Qingying was standing in front of the window, staring down in a daze.
Even when Chen Dong entered, he did not notice.
“Little Shadow ……”
Chen Dong’s brows were slightly wrinkled as he lightly shouted out.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled for a moment, raising her hand to wipe her face in panic and turning around with a smile.
Although she was smiling, the tear marks were clearly visible on that stunningly beautiful face that had just regained its blood colour, and even her eyes were filled with red blood colour.
“You’re crying?” Chen Dong’s heart seized fiercely.
Gu Qingying took a deep breath and shook her head with a smile, “Something dirty ran into my eyes.”
“Do you want to rest for a while?”
Chen Dong did not pursue the question, the doubts in his mind turned into countless words that he wanted to ask, but when he opened his mouth, he always felt a blockage in his throat, and he could not ask a single word.
When he had seen the mystery man’s ragged note, he had purely scoffed.
But after returning from Kyoto, the changes in Gu Qingying were all imprinted in his eyes.
The man from last night was lingering in Chen Dong’s mind at the moment.
And the contents of the ragged note were shaped like red-hot sharp needles, stirring viciously on his heart minute by minute.
Gu Qingying nodded and burrowed into the hospital bed comforter.
Chen Dong turned on the television and selected a drama, then set the air conditioning to the most comfortable temperature before propping himself up on the edge of the bed and climbing onto the hospital bed.
Like a kitten, Gu Qing Ying burrowed into Chen Dong’s arms and gently twisted her body.
Chen Dong was staring at the television, lost in thought.
Suddenly, Gu Qingying asked, “Honey, you will never leave me and the baby, right?”
“Of course.” Chen Dong’s gaze flickered as he responded in a low tone.
Gradually, the breathing of Gu Qingying in his arms became even and low.
Chen Dong lowered his head and looked at the sleeping me Gu Qingying.
Her eyebrows were slightly knitted, her right hand swept across her chest, clutching Chen Dong’s lapel tightly, a look of pity, as if she was afraid of something.
[Be careful! Your wife]
The five words on the tattered note seemed to be burned into Chen Dong’s mind.
At this moment, Chen Dong’s heart viciously contracted to the extreme.
Facing Gu Qingying’s affection was incomparably complicated all of a sudden.
Looking at the ceiling, Chen Dong’s mind was unsettled and he could not fall asleep.
In fact, it was only last night that he had slept slightly more soundly.
The mere presence of the Jiang family, which was overwhelming, made it difficult for him to sleep peacefully all night.
Thoughts jumbled, Chen Dong tried to clear his mind.
He began to think about everything from the a*sa*sination of Lin Lingdong to last night.
He always felt that there should be more than what he saw in front of him.
Or maybe …… Gu Qingying really had no reason to betray him and harm him!
Inside the hospital room, it was quiet.
The TV series that was playing, the sound was also tuned very softly by Chen Dong.
Time pa*sed slowly.
Chen Dong’s gaze was sometimes clear, sometimes puzzled, and his eyebrows were stretched and furrowed in a cycle.
The Gu Qingying in his arms jerked a little.
The sleeping Gu Qingying woke up with a jolt, her hands instantly hugging Chen Dong, clutching her clothes quietly and howling.
An abrupt scene.
It instantly interrupted Chen Dong’s thoughts.
Inside the ward, Gu Qingying’s cries echoed, causing Chen Dong to instantly tense up.
He hurriedly asked Gu Qingying.
But Gu Qingying hugged Chen Dong tightly, bawling and crying, pearing with rain, but did not answer.
But as Chen Dong asked, he could clearly feel Gu Qingying’s arms around his waist hugging him very hard.
Chen Dong took a deep breath and wrapped his arms around Gu Qingying, gently rubbing his back and soothing.
“Is it a nightmare?” The gentle voice was heartbreakingly strong.
The bawling Gu Qingying nodded and sobbed, “I, I dreamt about you, you don’t want me and the baby anymore ……”
Chen Dong was stunned and his gaze became incomparably complicated.
With Gu Qingying’s words out, the cluttered thoughts in Chen Dong’s mind suddenly became a little clearer.
He took a deep breath and lowered his head with a kiss, lightly tapping on Gu Qingying’s forehead.
The other side.
Long Lao was carefully flipping through various recent information of Dingtai.
Xiao Ma stood by the side respectfully, sorting through it while making explanations when he encountered something that Elder Long didn’t understand.
“The young master is away for a while, but you guys are managing well.”
Long Lao glanced at Xiao Ma with satisfaction, “You are not in vain to be entrusted with the important task by the young master.”
Xiao Ma smiled and scratched his head, “Elder Long, I am here today thanks to Brother Dong’s guidance.
At the beginning, Chen Dong bought Dingtai when it was at its most precarious and dangerous stage, and reversed its decline with a magical means, helping the building to fall.
Subsequently, he led Din Tai all the way to the top.
All these made Xiao Ma and other employees of Din Tai’s company have a high impression of Chen Dong, and made them believe in him.
The mere fact that Dingtai was able to turn a loss into a profit on the shantytown renovation project in the west of the city and survive from the dead was a miracle in the minds of Xiao Ma and the other employees.
As time pa*sed, Xiao Ma, after getting to know Elder Long, gradually spied out the secret of Chen Dong’s ability to bring Dingtai back from the dead from the tone of Elder Long’s voice.
Even if he didn’t know exactly what was behind Chen Dong, it was clear to him that following Chen Dong was the best choice he had ever made in his life!
“Cut the crap, if you’re not capable yourself, the young master can’t carry you even if he wants to.”
Elder Long scolded with a laugh, causing Xiao Ma to make a big blush.
Just as Elder Long was about to continue flipping through the information, a phone call came through.
Elder Long took out his phone and casually glanced at it.
Upon seeing the caller ID, the smile on his face instantly disappeared without a trace and became incomparably solemn.
“Xiao Ma, go out for a moment.”
Only after Xiao Ma had left did Elder Long pick up the phone in a precious manner and press the answer button.
“Master, has the dust settled?”
However, over the phone, Chen Daoling’s words instantly caused Elder Long’s body to shake and his face to swoop and change dramatically.
