Chen Dong did not know what had happened after he had left.
He also did not care at all about the oddball ancient dragonfly.
Such an odd girl in a casual encounter was not worth noticing.
Back at Din Tai Company.
Chen Dong then got busy.
Dingtai Company was now expanding more and more, and the speed of expansion was becoming faster and faster.
Initially, relying on the shantytown renovation project in the western part of the city, it had completed its survival from death and turned the tide.
Then step by step, with the help of Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zunlong, the two local forces, all the way to the decisive expansion.
The snowball has been completely rolled up by him.
All he needed to do was to keep pushing the snowball, rolling it bigger and bigger.
In order to cope with the several new properties opening at the same time.
Chen Dong also selected some seedlings in the company and dispersed them to manage a property separately, which was also a kind of practice.
Although most of the company’s projects have been handed over to Xiao Ma to fully handle.
However, some extremely important matters, such as deciding the direction and development process of Dingtai, still need to be controlled by Chen Dong personally.
All these things added up, and it was not easy at all.
It was a busy day.
When it was close to the end of the day, even though there was still a pile of documents to go through, Chen Dong stopped working and packed up to go home.
No matter how urgent the work was, it was not worth being able to spend more time with Gu Qingying.
During his pregnancy, he had treated Gu Qingying too badly and could only make up for it with more company.
When he returned home, it was getting late.
To Chen Dong’s dismay, Gu Qingying was sitting worriedly on the sofa in the living room, her jade fingers on the bridge of her nose, rubbing it gently.
“Is something wrong?”
Chen Dong’s heart immediately lifted and he pushed the wheelchair to Gu Qingying’s side.
“No, it’s just that my eyelids feel like they’re jumping.”
Gu Qingying let go of her hand and smiled at Chen Dong: “It’s been jumping all afternoon.”
Chen Dong instantly breathed a sigh of relief.
The last time Gu Qingying had an accident, Dean Liu’s advice was still fresh in his ears.
“It’s alright, it’s just my eyelids jumping.” Chen Dong intimately scratched the bridge of Gu Qingying’s nose.
However, Gu Qingying curbed her smile and said with grave concern, “My left eye is jumping for wealth and my right eye is jumping for calamity, my right eye has been jumping all afternoon, will something happen? I always feel very uncomfortable in my heart, I always feel that something is going to happen.”
“You little superstitious, these customs and slang, why do you still believe in it so seriously?”
Chen Dong propped his hands on the sofa and dropped down to the sofa, then took Gu Qingying into his arms and said with a smile, “Come on, hubby hug, nothing bad can come near our little superstition.”
“Nasty, Sister Xiao Lu is still at home.”
Gu Qingying instantly blushed and wanted to push Chen Dong away, but Chen Dong did not let go of her hand, she instantly became a bit anxious: “Let go, Sister Xiao Lu is really at home, my eyelids are throbbing badly today, I am afraid that something will happen and let Sister Xiao Lu stay at home with me, and then let her go to the hospital when you come back.”
The words just fell.
The kitchen door sounded.
Fan Lu came out of the kitchen, “Little Shadow, what do you want to eat tonight?”
The moment the words left her mouth.
Fan Lu froze, her eyes staring straight at Chen Dong and Gu Qingying on the sofa.
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying were also staring at Fan Lu.
The air seemed to suddenly freeze.
The next second.
Fan Lu’s eyes automatically turned elsewhere, then she pretended to whistle casually, turned around and headed for the kitchen, “Let me make you something light, and make a soup to remove the fire for Mr. Chen.”
Chen Dong’s tiger body shook, the couple just hugged each other, did Sister Xiao Lu misunderstand so deeply?
Gu Qingying in his arms was even more ashamed, her pretty face was oozing blood.
She also heard what Fan Lu’s words meant.
Her delicate body trembled gently, Gu Qingying’s right hand quietly slid down to the tender flesh of Chen Dong’s waist, gritting her teeth and pinching, “It’s all your fault, I told you that Sister Xiao Lu was home, now the misunderstanding is big, it’s so humiliating, let go of me quickly.”
Chen Dong grimaced in pain, sucking in cold air one after another.
But his face was always wearing a happy smile, and his right hand never let go of Gu Qingying.
“It’s not a crime for me to hug my own wife, so if I say I won’t let go, I won’t let go, not even if I die.”
Gu Qingying had no choice and gave up struggling.
She huffed and looked her face to the other side, only her brows gradually frowned anyway, “I always feel palpitations and panic, could something really happen?”
“Aiya, don’t worry blindly, how about this, from tomorrow onwards, I will be by your side every day to protect you two mothers?”
Chen Dong said dryly.
“Really?” Gu Qingying’s eyes lit up, sweeping away the gloom she had just felt, she raised her hand and pinched Chen Dong’s nose and said, “That big fool can’t keep his word, yo.”
Chen Dong smiled spontaneously.
He didn’t take Gu Qingying’s words seriously at all, and it was really too casual to judge whether something would happen just because his eyelids were jumping.
While Gu Qingying did not know, he knew that the mysterious person was always watching and protecting in secret.
With that person around, it would be difficult for anything to go wrong.
What happened to Chen Tianyang was really just an extremely small probability.
If there was one, there could hardly be two!
After all, when a pregnant woman is pregnant, her emotions are extremely volatile, not to mention that during her pregnancy, Gu Qingying had experienced so many ups and downs.
It was only natural for her to be upset.
However, in order to calm Gu Qingying’s heart, he decided to spend more time with her, otherwise, according to this girl’s current situation, she probably won’t be able to sleep tonight.
In no time, Fan Lu had arranged for dinner.
And Long Lao, who had been missing, also came down from upstairs.
“Young master, after dinner, old slave has something he wants to talk to you about.”
As soon as he got on the table, Elder Long said soberly.
Chen Dong frowned and nodded his head in response.
After dinner, Fan Lu went to the hospital to deliver meals to Zhang Yulan and Lin Lingdong and Lone Wolf, as well as to pick up Zhang Yulan.
Chen Dong, on the other hand, went up to the rooftop together with Gu Qingying and Elder Long.
It could not be helped that Gu Qingying was always a bit worried, so Chen Dong could only let her follow.
The night breeze was brisk.
Chen Dong asked, “Elder Long, what is it that you want to talk to me about?”
“Just now, Master gave Old Slave a phone call, and that is what Old Slave wants to talk to Young Master about now.”
Elder Long’s face was solemn and he pondered for three seconds before he slowly said, “Master said that he wanted you to be careful of the Gu family’s people.”
“The Gu family?”
Chen Dong asked in confusion, “Which gentry is this again?”
To Chen Dong’s dismay, Elder Long shook his head, “Old slave doesn’t know either, and the master was very secretive when he said this matter, only asking old slave to instruct young master to be careful of the Gu family, and not to mention anything else.”
What was the meaning of this?
Chen Dong’s brow furrowed.
If father was specifically reminding to be careful, the matter must be huge.
On the contrary, he only told to be careful about this matter, but did not elaborate on it.
What exactly was the origin of this Gu family ……?
Chen Dong’s body trembled, and his eyes exploded with a steep, brilliant aura.
The ancient family?
In the quietness.
The odd girl with azure eyes, which had been left behind by Chen Dong, came to Chen Dong’s mind once again.
The Gu surname was rare.
Of all the people he had ever interacted with, there was only one, Gu Dragonfly.
What’s more, Gu Dragonfly was so oddly memorable.
Subconsciously, Chen Dong clasped his hands in a false grip, his eyebrows knitted together and his gaze like a torch.
Noticing Chen Dong’s abnormalities, Elder Long inquired, “Young Master, what is wrong?”
Chen Dong shook his head gruffly.
Then he asked, “My father, did he really not mention anything about being careful of the Gu family?”
Elder Long gave Chen Dong a deep glance.
He could tell that Chen Dong was hiding something from him, but as a slave, if Chen Dong did not say anything, he could not ask more.
“Let’s go, it’s getting late.”
Chen Dong said calmly, then pushed his wheelchair down the stairs by himself.
Elder Long stood on the rooftop, letting the night breeze blow his white hair, and murmured, “What exactly does Young Master …… Gu Family …… Master want to be careful about?”
Back inside the bedroom.
Gu Qingying had not yet gone to bed and was lying worriedly on the bed, staring at the ceiling.
Chen Dong’s brows stretched out.
Gu Qingying’s agate nose wrinkled slightly and she opened her hands, as if she was a little girl being petulant, and said, “Waiting for you, hug.”
Chen Dong smiled gently and after getting under the covers, he wrapped Gu Qingying into his arms and gently patted her back, soothing her to sleep.
Gu Qingying was like a kitten, lying in Chen Dong’s arms, closing her eyes, her eyelashes trembling lightly, and soon, she fell asleep, her breathing becoming steady and even.
But Chen Dong had no intention of sleeping.
Looking at the ceiling, his eyebrows were locked and his eyes were full of doubts.
The scene from the daytime encounter with the ancient dragonfly surfaced in his mind little by little, as if he was pa*sing through a sieve.
Previously, Chen Dong had cared nothing for the ancient dragonfly, and the only effect it had had was just the oddball.
But is there a shortage of oddballs in today’s era?
Obviously there was no shortage.
This also allowed Chen Dong to simply dismiss the scene during the day as a mere coincidence of a casual encounter.
But a phone call from his father made the daytime coincidence a little less coincidental.
And the oddity displayed by the ancient dragonfly at that time was no longer so …… odd in Chen Dong’s heart at this time.
If the ancient dragonfly’s appearance, and odd behavior, is attributed to have a reason purpose as a prerequisite condition.
Then all of this, it becomes justified.
“The Ancient Dragonfly …… Ancient Family ……”
Chen Dong frowned and murmured.
Eyes flickering for a moment, he suddenly hesitated again, “What if the Ancient Dragonfly is not from the Ancient Family and the scene during the day was really just a coincidence by chance?”
Suddenly, Gu Qingying’s gentle voice rang out.
When Chen Dong returned to his senses, he saw Gu Qingying in his arms opening her eyes and looking at him with sleepy eyes, “Do you have something on your mind?”
“No, go to sleep.”
Chen Dong pretended to smile calmly, then turned off the desk lamp and shrunk into the nest, hugging Gu Qingying as she fell asleep.
With the darkness covering her, Gu Qingying was no longer awakened even after she fell asleep again.
Chen Dong lay on his bed and did not sleep all night.
If it was in the past, he would not have been like this.
But now, this pool of water was getting muddier and muddier, and what he thought was his ultimate goal – to become the head of the Chen family – was just a little hole in the pall of gloom that leaked out the light.
Now that the gloom is pressing down, this ray of light seems to have become small and insignificant.
If one is not careful, all may be lost.
Even …… could lose even more!
The loss of something more unbearable for him than the mere position of the Chen family head.
This was Chen Dong’s usual style of acting.
Not to mention, nowadays he had Gu Qingying and the baby to guard.
Everything had to start with guarding this around him.
The next morning.
Chen Dong, who had not slept all night, could not hide the tiredness on his face, and his eyes were a little bloodshot with fatigue.
He did not wake Gu Qingying.
He quietly got up and washed up, then went downstairs for breakfast and asked Elder Long to send him to Dingtai Company.
However, thinking of how worried Gu Qingying was last night, Chen Dong gave Long Lao a special advice when he was leaving, not to go anywhere, but to stay at home and protect Xiaoying.
Naturally, Chen Dong did not believe in the superstition of “left eye jumping for wealth, right eye jumping for disaster”, but caution was the best thing to do, not to mention that Gu Qingying’s belly had grown bigger and was getting closer to giving birth, so he could not be the least bit sloppy in every aspect.
With the arrival of work time.
Chen Dong also pushed down his distracted thoughts and threw himself into the intensive and heavy workload.
The sun was gradually hanging high.
The whole city also glowed with the vitality of daylight.
It was close to noon.
Underneath the Din Tai Company, where the traffic was heavy and people were coming and going.
A pretty silhouette comes in.
Ponytail, blue eyes, pink and white skin, just like a doll.
Plus a dress similar to Lolita’s.
As soon as the ancient dragonfly appeared, it earned the eyes of the people around.
“Oh my god, this girl is really too pretty, so cute!”
“LO Lita, wow Sh*t, a sure kill, a sure kill, dude help me out, I feel like my blood bar is empty.”
“If a girl like this could be my girlfriend, I’d be willing to live 10 years shorter.”
The whispering and the astonished and odd glances of the people around.
The ancient dragonfly seems to be used to it, and does not show the slightest strange emotion.
In fact, from her childhood, because of her own looks, she had also become the jewel in the palm of everyone in the Gu family.
She had never felt that it was unusual for her to attract attention to her looks, and she was only surprised if people didn’t notice her.
“Is this that guy’s company?”
Gu Longfang moved slightly towards the building and muttered, “Huh! This guy is also very ordinary, he doesn’t even have his own company office building, he just rented an office building, I don’t know what Grandma really sees in him, she actually came all the way to such a small place for him personally.”
It was because of the “ordinary” location of Chen Dong’s company that made Ancient Dragonfly’s curiosity about Chen Dong grow stronger and stronger.
She did not know what her grandmother had come all the way over here personally for Chen Dong’s sake.
But she knew that very few people were worthy of her coming all the way here in person!
What’s more, it was a man in a wheelchair who was so “ordinary”.
Because of the attention of the people around her, and also because of the way she looked and dressed.
As soon as she walked into the lobby of the building, she was stopped by the building security guard.
“Miss, this is an office building, there are all major companies up there, are you an employee of the company please?” The security guard’s eyes drifted away, shyly not daring to meet Gu Dragonfly’s gaze.
“Uncle, I’m here to find someone.” Gu Longfang flashed her azure eyes.
“Looking for someone? May I ask who you are looking for? We’ll contact them for you and make sure before you can enter.” The guard said.
“What’s all this trouble?” Ancient Dragonfly beamed.
The security guard smiled and explained, “It can’t be helped, our building is full of major companies up there, and that’s how the management regulations are.”
“Uncle, no need for that, actually ……”
Gu Dragonfly suddenly lowered her head somewhat shyly, clutching her ponytail braid with her right hand, and said in a low mosquito-like voice: “Actually …… I’m Dingtai Company Chen Dong’s girlfriend.”
