Winner Takes All Chapter 713-714

Chapter 713

“Where can’t you see through?”

Elder Long frowned in confusion.

The mysterious man, however, smiled evasively, “Perhaps he himself is a huge variable that is inscrutable.”

After saying that, he turned around and left.

Elder Long froze in place and did not speak.

Half a long time later.

He sighed and turned around to go back to the house.

Inside the bedroom.

The lights were dim.

Chen Dong had not slept, in fact, even though he was tired, he could hardly sleep.

Sitting on the bed, he held a photo album containing pictures of Gu Qingying taken during her pregnancy.

There were pictures of Gu Qingying alone, and there were also pictures of him and Gu together.

The only thing that remained the same was that both of them were focused on Gu Qingying’s belly.

This was the fruit of his and Gu Qingying’s love.

During their pregnancy in October, he and Gu Qingying had been looking forward to the arrival of the little angel.

Gradually Chen Dong’s eyes moistened and drops of tears fell onto the photo as if they were broken pearls, snapping and exploding into a transparent plum blossom.

“Just a little while away, the baby will descend into our family, I will be the father and Little Shadow will be the mother.”

Chen Dong longed, but gradually a chill burst from his teary eyes, “Gu family, ready to die without end?”

It was not until the early hours of the morning that Chen Dong closed the album, found a hidden location and hid it with great care.

He did not want Gu Qingying to see the photo album when she returned home.

That would definitely make Gu Qingying heartbroken and grief-stricken.

The miscarriage was already a big enough blow to Gu Qingying.

He had to think of Gu Qingying’s body.

Returning to bed, Chen Dong took out the Tao Te Ching and pored over it.

When he was at university, he had spent a long time in the library.

He would not turn down any of the books in the library and would flip through them all.

It was during that time that he built up a rich heritage, which enabled him to find the right people to talk to when he entered society, and to quickly develop a good feeling for each other.

The Tao Te Ching was also a scripture that he had turned to many times, and having turned to it more often, he had his own appreciation of this treasure that had been handed down for thousands of years.

One book, read by ten thousand people, felt by ten thousand people.

The words he had just said to Elder Long were the first words he had comprehended after flipping through the Tao Te Ching again and again.

Gradually, Chen Dong became engrossed into the contents of the Tao Te Ching, the words were simple and not too simple, and he could savour them every time he read them.

As he delved deeper, Chen Dong’s mind gradually calmed down.

The sadness that was set off by looking through the photo album just now also gradually disappeared.

The whole person was immersed in the tranquillity of reading.

It was a long night, so long that Chen Dong flipped through the Tao Te Ching three times.

It was a short night, so short that Chen Dong had only gone through the Tao Te Ching three times.

When it was just dawn, Chen Dong closed the sutra and began his daily exercise.

Even if he was grieving and in pain, he had never thought of slacking off on his exercise.

Only by making himself stronger, strong enough, would he be qualified to face danger, not in an impotent rage, but by swinging his fist and shaking it straight through.

This is true whether it is personal strength or the strength of all the resourcefulness combined, Dao.

A systematic devil training, let Chen Dong body muscle lines become more three-dimensional accentuated, teardrop covered every inch of skin, are extremely explosive sense, in the sunrise, gleaming.

“Whew ……”

Chen Dong exhaled a breath and stretched his back.

At the joints of his upper body, there was a crackling sound, just like frying beans.

After a sweaty workout, Chen Dong, who had not slept for two nights, was not exhausted, but felt a sense of relaxation after sweating, and his spirits were much better.

He washed up and went to the dining room on the ground floor.

Fan Lu had already prepared breakfast and Elder Long, Zhang Yulan and Fan Lu were eating.

When they saw Chen Dong, Long Lao, Fan Lu and Zhang Yulan were all startled.

“Young Master, you are up so early?” Elder Long asked.

“Haven’t slept all night.”

Chen Dong shook his head, “I couldn’t sleep, Sister Xiao Lu help me with the dishes, I have to go to the hospital to keep Xiao Ying company after I eat two bites.”

The look of despondency and gloom was obvious to anyone who could see it at a glance.

After breakfast, the group rushed to the Lijin Hospital.

When Chen Dong walked into the ward.

Gu Qingying was sitting on the hospital bed lost in thought, her face full of haggardness, her face still pale.

The couple, Gu Guohua, were also sitting on the sofa in exhaustion.

“Mom and Dad, wife.”

Chen Dong called out softly.

Gu Guohua and his wife looked at Chen Dong at the same time, and then looked at Gu Qingying on the hospital bed.

In response to Chen Dong’s soft shout, Gu Qingying did not move, ignoring it.

The couple looked gloomy at the same time.

“Xiao Lu, Yu Lan, you guys help uncle persuade Xiao Ying, Dong’er come out with us.” Gu Guohua sighed, got up and helped his wife to walk out.

On the corridor.

Gu Qingying’s mother sat dishevelled and despondent on a chair, secretly wiping her tears.

“Dad, what happened last night?” Chen Dong asked.

Gu Guohua sighed and said heartbreakingly, “Last night, Xiaoying had several nightmares, all of which woke her up with fright, and then she hugged your mother and cried, tossing and turning until the latter part of the night, when Xiaoying simply stayed awake until now.”

How was this going to work?

Chen Dong’s brows knitted in worry.

This time, Gu Qingying’s body had been greatly depleted, not only from the miscarriage, but also from the damage Wang Nan Nan had done to her body.

At this rate, how would Gu Qingying’s body recover?

Taking a deep breath, Chen Dong glanced at the exhausted Gu Guohua and then at his mother who was secretly wiping her tears.

He said, “Mom and Dad, you have also stayed up all night, go home and rest, I will keep watch at the hospital for the next few days, you can just come over during the day.”

“But we, the old couple, can’t bear to see Little Shadow like this.” The mother sobbed.

Chen Dong shook his head, “I will take care of Xiaoying, you guys are getting old, it hurts your health to stay up like this all the time.”

Gu Guohua sighed and reluctantly nodded his head in agreement.

He then said with a deep gaze, “How is your investigation going? I have used all the contacts I could, and even had the cheek to ask Old Meng to open the back door, but I couldn’t find the slightest clue about the Gu family.”

Chen Dong could not hide the look of astonishment in his eyes.

He knew that his father-in-law had made his fortune from the city, and was an international player, and now Qing Ying International was a major capital force in the international arena.

And with his father-in-law’s human resource base, once unleashed, the intelligence power, was absolutely huge.

Even if it’s a family, it’s all under your nose.

This is all, but they can’t find out a single clue about the Gu family?

“I’ll let Elder Long be looking into it.” Chen Dong said in a pensive voice.

Then he pushed open the ward door and called Elder Long out.

Elder Long looked torn and his gaze fluttered.

Facing the stares of Chen Dong and Gu Guohua.

He gritted his teeth and said, “Young master, put it on hold.”

Hold off?!

The moment the words left his mouth, Chen Dong and Gu Guohua froze at the same time.

A depressed qi covered both of their faces at the same time.

Sensing the change in the two of them, Elder Long pleaded, “This is Master’s intention, Master is personally investigating, but for you to suppress your anger for the time being, Young Master.”

Suppressing his anger?

Chen Dong suddenly felt amused.

He snorted and a cold aura exploded in his eyes as he said coldly, “He was able to suppress his anger and leave us, mother and son, back then, so he thinks that I am like him and can leave my wife and children alone?”


Chapter 714

The chill was bitterly cold, and it entered the marrow of his bones.

As Chen Dong’s words left his mouth, the corners of his mouth slowly turned upwards, revealing a cold smile that seeped through.

His eyes burned like a sword piercing the heart.

Gu Guohua and Elder Long were both startled, their sweat hairs standing on end.

Gu Guohua asked Long Lao: “What exactly does the in-laws mean? Xiao Ying is his daughter-in-law, and his grandson is his own grandson!”

Compared to Chen Dong, the aged and mature Gu Guohua appeared a little more calm.

He did not believe that Chen Daoling could still sit still after such a catastrophe had befallen the glorious Chen family, the bloodline of the family head.

There must be something inside such a “cowering” request.

Otherwise, based on Chen Dao Lin’s skill in defending Chen Dong, it would not be reasonable for Chen Dao Lin to be so calm at this time.

Long Lao’s gaze was profound as he said in a deep voice, “His Lordship did not say much, he only said that the Gu family was very involved, too deep and too complicated.”

“With just that one sentence, you want me to hold off?”

Without waiting for Gu Guohua’s response, Chen Dong’s face was filled with a cold smile, “He has known the details of the Gu family for a long time, but he refused to reveal half a word from the beginning to the end.

Rao Gu Guohua’s face had become extremely ugly at this point.

He could calmly surmise that Chen Daoling must have another inside story.

But such a statement could be described as perfunctory!

As a father, his own daughter had suffered such a catastrophe, how could he hold off on taking revenge just because of such a remark?

And yet.

There was a poof!

Elder Long knelt directly in front of Chen Dong and Gu Guohua, pleading, “Young Master, Elder Gu, please, you must calm down and suspend the matter of revenge!”

“Master knows precisely the reason for the Gu family, so he must be considering things from the bigger picture, there must be a reason he cannot say!”

The sudden scene caused Gu Guohua’s face to change greatly.

Chen Dong, on the other hand, had a thick layer of cold frost steeply covering his face.

“Elder Long, you are going to block me like this?”

Feeling the insidious coldness emanating from Chen Dong’s body, Elder Long felt like he was in the middle of an icy sky and snow, his body was so cold that there was no trace of temperature.

However, in his red eyes, he was incomparably determined.

Long Lao said in a deep voice, “Even if I have to risk my old slave’s life, I implore Young Master to hold off, this is Master’s order!”


Chen Dong squeezed out a word from between his teeth.

At the side, Gu Guohua’s brow was furrowed into a “Chuan” frown, his gaze deep and thoughtful.

“Young master ……”

Long Lao continued to plead.

But before he could say anything, Chen Dong waved his hand brazenly and said, “Elder Long, this is my wife and son’s revenge, not to mention you, even if Chen Daolin himself came, it would be impossible to stop me!”

Instead of addressing his father with respect, he addressed the three words Chen Daoling directly.

At this moment, Chen Dong was furious to the extreme.

His eyes were even as red as blood as he stared deadly at Elder Long.

At these words.

Elder Long looked gloomy and sad, his lips mouthing.

Facing Chen Dong at this moment, he actually felt at a loss as to how to dissuade him.

On one side was Chen Dong, who had already planted a demon in his heart and was obsessed with revenge, and on the other side was Chen Daoling’s order, how should he choose?

At this moment.

“Dong’er, Elder Long is already stopping it with his life.”

Gu Guohua suddenly spoke up, and his originally tightly furrowed brow relaxed.

Chen Dong’s face froze and he looked at Gu Guohua in surprise, “Dad, even you think we should hold off?”

He did not know why Chen Daolin had let Elder Long stop him from taking revenge immediately with his life because his enemy was the Gu family.

But Gu Guohua’s current reaction left him bewildered and puzzled.

He was Gu Qingying’s own father!

“Your father has his reasons.”

Gu Guohua said in a deep voice, “Elder Long stopped it with his life, should we let Elder Long die in front of us? It’s fine to suspend revenge, but what should be investigated, we must investigate thoroughly to the end!”

At the end of his sentence, his words fiercely turned, revealing incomparable determination and solemnity.

Chen Dong’s eyes flashed.

Looking at Gu Guohua, he was lost in thought.

In a trance, he suddenly felt his chest cavity was clogged up as if it was stuffed with stones.

He had always worked hard, just to protect those around him and give them everything better.

But as he grew up and became stronger step by step, instead of protecting the people around him, they were put in danger again and again because of him.

Now, his wife is seriously injured, his child is miscarried, his wife and child are all his scales, the scales are moved, and he actually has to hold off on revenge.

So …… what is the meaning of my constant efforts to become stronger?

Chen Dong’s gaze suddenly became bewildered.

He was indeed getting stronger, but reality was going against the reason he had gotten stronger in the first place.

“Young master ……”

With red eyes, Long Lao wailed and pleaded with tears in his eyes.

“Hehe ……”

Chen Dong suddenly laughed, a smile filled with bitterness and helplessness.

At this moment, he suddenly felt a huge pain of being killed by a thousand cuts.

“I became strong in order to protect my parents, wife and children, my brothers and friends, and now that I have really become strong, instead of being able to protect them, I have to be like a shrinking turtle and hold off on forbearance, which is really funny when you think about it.”

Chen Dong waved his hand, looking despondent and gloomy, “It’s alright, just hold off, I won’t ask him to help me investigate the Gu family anymore, if I keep asking, maybe he won’t even let me investigate.”

“How can we investigate without going through your father?”

Gu Guohua could understand how Chen Dong was feeling right now, and even if he wasn’t more experienced than Chen Dong, he wouldn’t have forced down this bite of anger.

However, Chen Dong’s decision made Gu Guohua a little at a loss.

He had already used all his strength and had found nothing about the Gu family’s clues.

If he didn’t rely on the Chen family again ……

“Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, Hong Hui!”

Chen Dong spat out the two appellations, a cold aura exploding in his eyes, these were the two biggest bases he relied on nowadays, apart from the Chen Family.

He did not know why Huo Zhenxiao and Ye Yuanqiu had gone out of their way to pull him in, even going so far as to promise a high position.

But it seemed through the incident of killing Ye Tianyang last time that if they really wanted to take revenge, the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army and the Hong Society would definitely not stand by indifferently either.

Noon that day.

With Chen Dong’s two phone calls dialed out.

The northern frontier.

The wind and snow chilled the sky.

The fierce wind mixed with ice and snow was like a sharp knife, not only cutting people’s faces, but also cutting this side of space in a dappled and blurred manner.

In the distance.

In the distance, snow bursts and waves of snow are piling up, pushing towards this side.

With the sound of horses’ hooves.

A line of iron horsemen bravely broke through the snow and wind.

Phew ……

Huo Zhenxiao was the first to take the lead, standing up with his horse.

The domineering lookout aura instantly seemed to make the surrounding wind and snow lurch.

“The Gu family, this Gu family …… still want to do it again and again?”

Huo Zhenxiao’s gaze was morose, with a rare bit of gloom between his brows.

And after him, the Golden Guards came forward.

“Sovereign, that Gu family ……”

The Golden Guards were all dragon and phoenix existences above ten thousand people, and they all took Huo Zhenxiao’s words clearly, Huo Zhenxiao clearly knew about this Gu family!


However, Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes were cold as he looked askance at the Golden Guards and said in a deep voice, “What ancient family? I don’t know.”

A look, a word.

Instantly, all the curious minds of the Golden Guards were suppressed.

All the Golden Guards bowed their heads in fear, not daring to look at Huo Zhenxiao.

On the other side of the ocean.

The Hong Society’s headquarters, in the ancestral mansion.

At this moment, a violent quarrel broke out, and there were even sounds of smashing things in the house.

“Linglong, how dare you, do you really think grandpa doesn’t dare to punish you?” Ye Yuanqiu snarled in anger and frustration.

Immediately after, Ye Linglong’s voice with a crying tone rang out.

“Grandpa, it was that Gu family that caused Xiao Ying to miscarry and the child to die, they committed such a bloodbath, you obviously knew about it, why are you not going to tell Chen Dong about the Gu family?”
