Winner Takes All Chapter 717-718

Chapter 717

Night falls.

Chen Dong took the soup brought by Fan Lu, blew it spoonful by spoonful so that it was not hot, and then carefully fed it into Gu Qingying’s mouth.

Gu Qingying was very resistant to eating, and her whole body seemed to have lost its soul.

But under the forcefulness of Chen Dong and Gu Guohua, the couple eventually chose to eat a little.

It took a long time to finally finish the cup of soup.

Chen Dong took a tissue and wiped the corner of Gu Qingying’s mouth, smiling gently and said, “You take a rest first, I’ll go out and talk to Long Lao about something, I’ll let my parents go home tonight, I’ll stay here with you.”

Gu Qingying nodded her head.

Only then did Chen Dong turn around and push his wheelchair to the corridor.

Long Lao was sitting on a chair waiting.

Seeing Chen Dong, he got up and said, “Young master, Kunlun is already out of the icu.”

Chen Dong’s expression was gloomy.

When he was first hijacked by the Twelve Golden Guards, Kun Lun had relied hard on his flesh and blood to shake the Twelve Golden Guards, and in the end, he had froze and killed three of them.

You know, the Twelve Golden Guards were almost the highest fighting force in the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry!

Those were the commanders handpicked by Huo Zhenxiao from among 300,000 men, truly one in ten thousand!

The battlefield Kunlun fought was truly against the odds!

Chen Dong had fought with the Dragon Head Guard Bai Qi and knew the strength of the Golden Guard, even though Bai Qi was the Dragon Head Guard, there should not be much difference between his strength and that of the Golden Guard.

At that time, he was already in danger of facing Bai Qi.

Kunlun, on the other hand, was alone at the time, facing the Golden Guards’ siege.

And to have survived, it was just as Dean Liu had said, relying on his own invincible will and creation.

But thinking of Gu Qingying, Chen Dong suppressed the thoughts in his mind and said, “Let’s go and see tomorrow, I’m not comfortable with Xiao Ying being alone in the ward.”

“Good.” Elder Long nodded his head.

Chen Dong followed closely and said, “I think something is odd, whether it is the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army or the Hong a*sociation, there is actually no clue about the Gu Family.”

Elder Long looked stunned, his brows locked in silence.

Chen Dong said calmly, “You guys forced me to hold off on taking revenge, but you didn’t say that I wasn’t allowed to investigate the Gu Family thoroughly!”

At these words.

Elder Long’s expression eased a little and murmured, “It is indeed odd, whether it is the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army or the Hong Society, neither is weaker than the world’s clans, their sleight of hand should not be far behind even if it is not as good as the full force of the Chen Family’s intelligence agency, neither has the slightest clue of the Gu Family, this matter is indeed bizarre.”

“Has there been any news from Chen Daolin’s side?”

Chen Dong suddenly asked.

Elder Long’s pupils shrank and looked at Chen Dong in dismay, wanting to speak but not to.

He knew that the way Chen Daoling had acted in this matter had caused a huge gap in Chen Dong’s heart.

Otherwise, why would Chen Dong suddenly call him by his first name?

“There is no news.” Elder Long said helplessly with bitterness in his heart.

“Well, you should go home early and rest, I’m going to accompany Little Shadow.”

Chen Dong frowned tightly as he turned around and entered the ward.

Looking at the tightly closed ward door.

Long Lao looked forlorn and sorrowful as he let out a long sigh and murmured softly, “The son does not know his father’s suffering, the father protects his son but does not speak, when exactly will the old master and the young master be able to completely make up for the gap of twenty years?”

Inside the sickroom.

Chen Dong was lying on the hospital bed, hugging Gu Qingying.

Gradually, the sound of even breathing rang out in his arms.

Chen Dong, however, did not feel the slightest bit sleepy and looked at the ceiling, pondering.

His father would not tell him the information about the Gu family.

The Great Snow Dragon Riding Army and the Hong Society had no clue either.

The three strongest cards he relied on were now all invalid.

This left Chen Dong with a feeling of being closed off.

Facing the Gu Family and not even being able to understand it, such a feeling of being closed and suffocated made his chest clogged up.

Previously, he had thought about revenge, but now he did not even have the means to understand his enemy.

At the same time, he felt a strong wave of guilt and remorse.

Chen Dong glanced down at Gu Qingying in his arms, his gaze deep.

But with this one look.

He clearly saw Gu Qingying’s eyebrows suddenly twist to the extreme.

A look of pain and panic also appeared on her pale face.

The body that was curled up in his arms was trembling gently.

Soon, dense beads of sweat seeped out from Gu Qingying’s forehead.

This scene scared Chen Dong’s heart into his throat.

“Little Ying ……”

He tried to wake Gu Qingying up.

But Gu Qingying did not move, and while trembling with fear, she suddenly raised her hand and tightly grabbed his wrist.

Even, the nails were somewhat embedded into the flesh.

Immediately afterwards, a panicked and painful murmuring sound came out of Gu Qingying’s mouth, “Baby …… baby ……”

Along with the murmur, two lines of tears slid down the corners of her eyes.

Chen Dong looked as if his heart was twisting like a knife.

He was about to continue calling out to Gu Qingying.


Gu Qingying in his arms suddenly let out a scream and opened his eyes violently.

“It’s alright, I’m here, it’s just a nightmare ……”

Chen Dong hurriedly soothed.

But as soon as Chen Dong, who had woken up with a start, saw Chen Dong, he burst into tears, “It wasn’t a dream, husband, it wasn’t a dream, I saw the baby, he was covered in blood right there, he was crying and asking why I didn’t want him anymore, ooooooooooo ……”

The sobs of grief and pain tore his heart out.

In an instant, Gu Qingying became a tearful person crying, her delicate body trembling.

Chen Dong’s expression froze and he even felt a little suffocated.

Gu Qingying’s words seemed like a big invisible hand, choking his throat so fiercely that it even felt like it was squeezing the air in his lungs.

Words could not even describe that feeling.

In a trance, Chen Dong’s nasal cavity was also sore and sore, and his eyes were red.

However, he continued to hold it back and gently comforted Gu Qingying.

Gradually, when Gu Qingying’s emotions calmed down.

Chen Dong asked in a soft voice, “Last night you kept being woken up with nightmares like this?”


Gu Qingying nodded her head while sobbing.

“It’s alright, the baby won’t blame us, relax, the most important thing now is to take care of your body.” Chen Dong did not dare to look at Gu Qingying, tilting his head back to look at the ceiling, trying hard to hold back the tears in his eyes from flowing out.

But Gu Qingying, however, was clenching her silver teeth and forcing back her sobs, “But I blame myself, I blame myself for not protecting the baby.”

Chen Dong took a deep breath, trying to calm his emotions, and lowered his head and nodded a kiss on Gu Qingying’s forehead: “I don’t blame you, you’ve done a great and wonderful job, if you want to blame me, you can only blame me for not being a good father and husband.

Gentle rea*surance, gently rubbing the back.

After Gu Qingying’s emotions calmed down, she slowly fell asleep again.

She was too weak, when her nerves were tense and she was immersed in pain, even falling asleep was a nightmare, but when her emotions calmed down, her weak body was not strong enough to support her to keep her eyes open.

This night.

Chen Dong did not fall asleep.

Because just like last night, Gu Qingying did not fall asleep for long before she would be awakened by nightmares.

Even though Gu Qingying was not awakened, she was still wailing in pain in her sleep.

After dawn.

Gu Guohua and his wife, Fan Lu, Elder Long, Zhang Yulan and others arrived as scheduled.

Chen Dong still fed Gu Qingying carefully, but when the meal was over, a WeChat was sent to Chen Dong’s phone.

“Pick me up at the airport, I have important news for you, Ye Linglong.”


Chapter 718

Important news?

Chen Dong’s mind was lifted.

Only on the first foot did he ask the Hong Society to help him investigate the Gu Family.

In the back foot, Ye Linglong came personally, did she know about the Gu Family?

If it was something else, Chen Dong would never be willing to leave Gu Qingying by half a step at this moment, but if it was about the Gu Family, then it would be a different story.

He was hesitating.

The phone sent a WeChat message again.

“The Gu family!”

The two simple words instantly made Chen Dong settle on the idea.

“Husband, what’s the matter?”

Gu Qingying asked worriedly when she saw Chen Dong frozen in thought.

“No, it’s nothing, I’m going out later, Mom, Dad and Sister Xiao Lu will take care of you.” Chen Dong squeezed out a small smile.


There was some loss in Gu Qingying’s eyes.

After greeting Gu Guohua and his wife, Chen Dong left the ward with Elder Long.

After waiting for Chen Dong to leave.

Fan Lu and Zhang Yulan were also busy taking care of Kunlun Qin Ye and the others.

Gu Guohua was a little annoyed, “Xiao Ying is in such a state, what else could make him go out at this moment?”

“Aiya, just don’t be an a*s, will you?” Li Wanqing scolded.

Gu Qingying also squeezed out a smile and explained, “Dad, Chen Dong is also having a hard time these days, if it wasn’t something important, he definitely wouldn’t have left.”


Gu Guohua scoffed, what could be more important than his own daughter now?

It’s not like the Gu family’s clues could be traced ……


Gu Guohua was instantly shocked, could it be that the Gu family had a clue?

Outside the Lijin Hospital.

After getting into the car, Long Lao asked, “Young master, where are you going?”

“To pick up someone at the airport on the outskirts of the city.” Chen Dong said.


“Ye Linglong.”

Elder Long’s expression changed, back when he was over there in the other side of the ocean, what Ye Linglong had in mind for Chen Dong could not escape his eyes.

If it was usual, it was not much.

But now the words ……

Long Lao couldn’t help but remind, “Young Madam is still in the hospital, isn’t it untimely to go pick up Ye Linglong now?”

Chen Dong rubbed his nose and said calmly, “She came to deliver the Gu family’s clue.”

Outside the airport on the outskirts of the city.

The Rolls Royce pulled into the car park.

Elder Long had a complicated look on his face.

On the one hand, it was Chen Daoling’s strict order to stop Chen Dong from immediately retaliating against the Gu Family, and since he wanted to stop it, he would prefer to make Chen Dong unable to even probe the Gu Family’s clues, and being confused was the best way to stop it.

On the contrary, Chen Daolin had indeed not ordered him to stop Chen Dong from probing the Gu Family either, and with Chen Dong’s anger, there would perhaps be an even greater backlash if he was not even allowed to investigate.

Earlier, when he heard Chen Dong say that the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army and the Hong Society could not find out any clues about the Gu Family, Elder Long actually had a few moments of fluke in his heart to steal joy.

But now Ye Linglong had come to his door personally!

And Chen Dong, who was sitting in the back row, his eyes also revealed his expectation.

He was forced to hold off on taking revenge.

But that did not mean that he could tolerate not knowing anything about the Gu family.

If he didn’t even know what the enemy was like, then how could he take revenge?

Ye Linglong’s arrival gave him hope.

Soon, Elder Long spotted Ye Linglong walking out of the airport.

He got out of the car and welcomed Ye Linglong into the car.

“Where are the traveling gifts?”

There were no old friend-style pleasantries or superficial greetings.

Instead, he started off with a somewhat odd query.

Ye Linglong shrugged, “I came in too much of a hurry, I didn’t prepare any salutations, I planned to go back after I told you the news.”

“Oh, go ahead then, finish just in time to catch the next flight.” Chen Dong said.

Ye Linglong: “……”

This guy, when will he stop being angry?

Elder Long: “? 0?”

Chen Dong shrugged, “You know, I’m not interested in anything other than revenge for my wife and son right now.”

Ye Linglong shrugged, pretending as if nothing was wrong, and said, “Alright, I also want to visit Little Shadow, about the Gu family, let’s talk on the way.”


Chen Dong nodded his head in response.

Elder Long started the car up and drove onto the road.

“What clues about the Gu family?” Chen Dong asked directly.

Ye Linglong pondered for a while, and eventually changed to a euphemism.

“In fact, our Hong Society didn’t really find nothing, it’s just that what we found out, grandpa thought it was dispensable and irrelevant, as for more it couldn’t be found out, so we could only tell you that there were no clues.”

Chen Dong looked at Ye Linglong with cold eyes, “You came just to tell me about this dispensable and insignificant clue?”

“It’s mainly because I’m worried about Little Shadow and you.” Ye Linglong said.

Chen Dong did not respond.

On the contrary, Long Lao, who was driving, gave Ye Linglong a deep look through the rear-view mirror.

Following closely, Ye Linglong continued, “That Gu family, it’s a gatekeeper, a vanished gatekeeper to be exact.”

“A vanished gatekeeper?” Chen Dong frowned in confusion.

Ye Linglong continued, “I didn’t find out exactly, anyway, when this Gu family was in its heyday, it was a scenic gatekeeper, right, these differences between gentry family gatekeepers, you should be clear, right?”

Chen Dong nodded his head.

He had learnt about it before.

Several titles, seemingly the same, were in fact still different.

The most inferior gentry, its uppermost family, then gatehouse, and then above that was the world family gatehouse.

The same title, but with a strict hierarchy.

The Chen family, for example, was a lineage family, a title that was presumably imposed in order to fall between the lineage family and the lineage family.

The root of the problem is that the Chen family has the strength of a family, but lacks the longevity of a family.

It took a thousand years of prosperity before it could be called a lineage gatehouse.

However, when this ancient family existed back then, it was a gatekeeper, which surprised Chen Dong a lot.

The heritage …… is not shallow!

“I heard from grandfather that at that time, the Gu family also had a deep friendship with the Chen family, after all, although the Chen family ruled the bull’s ear of the world’s gentry, but the Gu family was not weak at all, not to say ruling the bull’s ear, at least it was also a terrifying existence of the bull’s head section.”

After a pause, Ye Linglong continued, “But then for some unknown reason, the Gu family suddenly disappeared, so much so that today many, many people do not know of the existence of this Gu family, even the gentry are rarely known, unless they are those who have a deep heritage stretching for a long time and have actually experienced the time when the Gu family gentry existed.”

Chen Dong did not speak, but looked at Ye Linglong and waited for the following.

And Ye Linglong also stared at Chen Dong, silent.

“And then?”

Elder Long, who was driving the car, asked.

He was also somewhat curious about this Gu family, after all, this family, even he was not sure about it.

“There is no then.” Ye Linglong said.

Elder Long: “……”

Chen Dong snorted, “It is indeed dispensable and irrelevant.”

The words had just fallen.

Ye Linglong suddenly raised an eyebrow and said, “By the way, grandfather found out that this Gu family seems to be not honorable when it became a stage of development and growth of a sectarian family, it seems to have disappeared because of that dishonorable past as well.”

Chen Dong raised his eyebrows, pondering.

Inside the car, there was silence.

Just as the Rolls-Royce was heading to the Lijin Hospital.

The airport on the outskirts of the city.

A private jet landed on the runway.

Yuan Yigang, who was dressed in a long black trench coat, stepped out of the plane and took out his mobile phone to try to dial Ye Linglong’s number, but it was switched off.

He frowned and stood at the side of the runway waiting.

Soon, a burly man came running over in a hurry, “Dragon head, Ye Hong stick has left the airport.”

As soon as the words came out, Yuan Yigang instantly twitched as the blue veins bulged out of the corners of his eyes.

Was it too late?
