It was late at night.
But neither Chen Dong nor the mystery man was asleep.
The two were in the corridor, one in a wheelchair, the other in a corridor chair, silently smoking cigarettes.
An Aros had made no one available around him.
Only Chen Dong and the mysterious man were able to protect Gu Qingying.
Sitting in the corridor and smoking, they were also worried about what other dangers might follow.
The smoke was lingering.
Chen Dong suddenly said, “According to your character, you shouldn’t have provoked the dragon head that much just now.”
He raised his eyes to look at the mysterious man.
The mysterious man did speak a bit indelicately at times.
But people had a number in their hearts.
Just now, Yuan Yigang was so enraged because of Ye Linglong that he used all his strength and slashed Aros.
Even though the incident was over, the residual anger on his face was obvious to everyone.
How could the mystery man say such barbed words?
The mystery man shook the ashes of his cigarette and said in a deep voice, “He just took a look at your legs, guess if he knew about you not being disabled?”
Chen Dong was stunned.
Just now, he had froze, also because of the instant alert that was born when Yuan Yigang stared at his legs.
“I don’t think so, in the heat of the moment I just landed on my legs, and then I was pressed back by Lin Lingdong.” Chen Dong said hesitantly.
“Let’s hope not.”
The mysterious man nodded and added, “I said that because I actually wanted to provoke him and use my anger to cover up his suspicions for the time being, and when he is gone and cannot see you, this small amount of suspicion can gradually be dispelled.”
After a pause, he smiled, “Actually, I also wanted to provoke him, to fight with him, to try out his skills, it has been years since I had this desire to actively fight with someone.”
Chen Dong was speechless for a while.
As expected, when bad guys made bad things happen, they must have a stomach full of bad farts.
However, the mysterious man’s words also caused Chen Dong to once again recall the image of Yuan Yigang’s slash just now.
To be honest, this was not the first time he had seen Yuan Yigang perform the God Killing Slash.
But this time, it really gave him a feeling of shock and fear.
That slash seemed to be able to slaughter heaven and earth!
With such a domineering slash, it was no wonder that the mysterious man had the desire to fight Yuan Yigang.
The mysterious man took out another cigarette, lent it to renew the flame and took a puff before asking, “I see that you look like you have something on your mind, what are you thinking about?”
Chen Dong did not hide and said straight to the point: “I was thinking, is the Gu family the same force that flew a helicopter to a*sa*sinate me in Desert North? Also, why did the Blood Angels of the Western World somehow try to kill me, and once they did so, they were still king bomb level experts?”
That power, Chen Dong had always been curious and had always wanted to explore.
But nowadays, the only one that could overlap with that power, as far as he could remember, was the Gu Family.
If it was really the Gu Family, the hidden power was revealed, and even if he held off on taking revenge, he would have more strength to resist than before when he did not know who the other party was.
The mysterious man shook his head, two simple words that instantly made Chen Dong’s heart sink to the bottom.
Chen Dong looked at the mysterious man in panic and disorientation, “No? In other words, the Gu family, the mysterious forces, and the Blood Angels, all three of them are watching me? All want to kill me?”
When he asked this, Chen Dong even felt that it was absurd bullSh*t.
What kind of person was he?
Was he worthy of being targeted by these three terrifying forces that were as vast as a sea of smoke and as lofty as a great prison, bent on killing him?
The Gu Family, a once vanished clan.
Mysterious forces, although unobtrusive, were definitely not weaker than the Gu Family, otherwise how could they dare to defy the pressure of their father, the Chen Family, and make a move against him?
There is also the Blood Angels organisation, which in the Western world can be the equivalent of the Hong Society’s sole hand in the other side of the ocean.
Even though the Blood Angels Organisation was a great deal weaker than the Hong Society, it didn’t mean that it was really weak in the slightest!
“No, no, no, you’re thinking too much.”
The mysterious man waved his hand and said in a calm tone, “You have to be confident, there are more than three people who are staring at you and want you dead.”
Chen Dong was struck by lightning, and his heart instantly contracted to the extreme.
More than three?
“Who else? How F**king excellent have I become?”
Chen Dong felt his chest clogging up at this moment, gritting his teeth and bursting out a rare foul mouth.
“There are many secrets in you, but I can’t tell you because it’s too involved.”
The mysterious man responded to Chen Dong with an extremely indebted remark.
Chen Dong instantly felt the urge to spray a mouthful of old blood on the mystery man’s face.
However, the mysterious man did not seem to be aware of it, murmuring to himself, “The Blood Angels’ organization is actually easy to deal with, a mere chicken and a dog, hiding in the shadows of the sun and revealing itself in the shadows.
A soft murmur, a cloud of lightness.
It was as if in the mysterious man’s mouth, the so-called bloodshed of the entire top echelon of the Blood Angels was as simple as washing and cooking.
Hearing this, Chen Dong smacked his lips for a moment.
“The really hard part is the Gu Family and the other forces.”
The mysterious man deflated his mouth, “A group of people who don’t even stay in the dark corners are hiding under the mud, and there is no way to cleanse them with blood.”
Chen Dong suddenly understood the mysterious man’s words.
In the end.
It was still the situation of the major powers and the reason for hiding.
The Blood Angels Organisation was strong, rooted in the Western Frontier and had only one hand in the sky.
Even if they were not allowed to be on the stage and see the light, they could still be found in the shadows.
If you can find them, you can solve them.
These forces of the Gu family, on the other hand, are all in the dark until now, and even if they are killing again, they are always hidden extremely deep.
This kind, if you want to solve it, you can’t even solve it.
“Hold off on taking revenge on the Gu family, those who achieve great things can endure what ordinary people cannot.”
The mysterious man got up and patted Chen Dong’s shoulder, saying meaningfully, “At least, you have to wait until after your father’s big birthday, after you have truly ascended the throne and established yourself as the next family head, before you take revenge.”
Chen Dong’s face was sunken to the extreme, his hands quietly clenched into fists, veins protruding.
He had already chosen to accept a stay of revenge.
But he did not accept that he had to wait such a long time.
Now that Gu Qingying was still in hospital and the child had been lost, this was undoubtedly a gut-wrenching pain for him.
If he let such a bloodthirsty enemy get away with it for so long, how could he be a father? How can he be a husband?
“Even if I really defeated all the successors on my father’s birthday and established that I am the winner and the next Chen family head, what does that have to do with my revenge? My father will still be in charge of the Chen family, and I am taking over after he retires.” Chen Dong stared reluctantly at the mysterious man.
“It has a lot to do with that!”
The mysterious man laughed, “The relationship is in name only, the relationship is in name only!”
Chen Dong frowned, full of doubts.
The mysterious man explained, “Once you defeat all the successors and are publicly established as the next Chen family head, then your position in the Chen family will finally be rightfully yours, and it is witnessed by all the heads of power, Old Lady Chen and the others cannot even renege on it if they want to.”
“At that time, you will be the Chen family, the Chen family will be you, and if you want to take revenge, you will be able to mobilise all the powers of the Chen family in name only!”
Chen Dong revealed a look of enlightenment.
The mysterious man gently patted Chen Dong’s shoulder, “Do you understand now? Before the final winner is established, you are not only in the eyes of the Chen family, but also in the eyes of all the powers, you are your father’s wild child, although that hurts you, but reality is that cold.”
The mysterious man’s heavy voice echoed within the corridor.
“So, during this period of time, you develop yourself as much as you can, and against the a*sa*sinations of those forces, you will have to endure them like a stray dog on the street, gritting your teeth and enduring them until the day of your father’s birthday, after you succeed in winning as the king, then will be the time for you to show your fangs.”
The mystery man is gone.
Not really gone, but hidden in a dark corner.
He said it himself, not to be too exposed to the light.
Chen Dong was still sitting on the corridor bench, still cupping the half-box of cigarettes the mystery man had handed him in his hand.
For some reason, he was getting more and more addicted to smoking these days.
When he had first gotten together with Gu Qingying, he had once quit smoking because Gu Qingying hated the smell of smoke, but now, the bitterness and resentment in his heart might only be exhaled through the smoke.
He looked despondent and his brows were locked.
Chen Dong melancholy re-lit one.
He certainly understood what the mystery man meant.
Today, he was nothing more than the illegitimate son of the Chen family head, a wild child in the eyes of everyone.
Even if Teng Long Jiu Xiao, the strength under his command was no longer weaker than that of a powerful family, it was still difficult to get rid of the word “wild child”.
It was too difficult to deal with the Gu family and those shadowy forces, it was as difficult as ascending to heaven.
And when the day of his father’s birthday comes, he will have defeated all the heirs and become the next Chen family head in full view of everyone.
At that time, what he could mobilise would be all the power of the Chen family!
Fangs revealed, eating people and drinking blood.
The Gu Family, Blood Angels and other forces would be much easier to deal with.
“Perhaps …… father is thinking the same way?”
Chen Dong murmured softly, rubbing his hands fiercely over his face.
He turned his head to look at the ward where Gu Qingying was.
The overwhelming feeling of guilt seemed like a red-hot sharp knife cutting through his entire body.
If it was as the mystery man had said, then how was he going to face Gu Qingying? How could he face his father-in-law and mother-in-law? How could he face his lost child?
A multitude of thoughts filled Chen Dong’s mind like a long, dense ball of thread.
His eyes were sometimes cold, sometimes violent, and sometimes even more hollow.
The aura of his body even changed from time to time.
In the quietness.
Chen Dong took out the Tao Te Ching given by the mysterious man and carefully flipped through it.
The concise content, word by word, was like a heavy hammer hitting his heart, and gradually Chen Dong’s emotions calmed down.
It was while Chen Dong was savouring the Tao Te Ching.
Not far away, a ward door quietly opened a crack.
The mysterious man looked at Chen Dong who was sitting on the bench and flipping through the sutra, his eyebrows slightly wrinkled and he murmured with some surprise, “The Buddhist sutra is useless, does the Tao Te Ching have miraculous effects?”
The night pa*sed quickly.
When the sky dawned.
Yuan Yigang walked to the top floor.
Chen Dong had not slept all night, but had shifted from the corridor bench, to the top of his wheelchair as the daylight was breaking.
So when Yuan Yigang came upstairs, he did not notice the slightest abnormality.
When he saw Yuan Yigang, Chen Dong said, “Dragon head, are you leaving?”
“Well, it’s all packed up.”
Yuan Yigang nodded: “Linglong is not seriously injured, after a simple treatment there will be no delay in the trip, when we return, I will arrange for her to receive treatment, besides, you don’t need to send it off, take good care of your wife.”
When he said the word “wife” at the end, Yuan Yigang deliberately increased the tone of his voice.
It seemed to be a reminder to Chen Dong.
Chen Dong nodded his head and cupped his fist, “A long way to go, forgive me for not seeing you off, thank you to the Dragon Head and Ye Hong Stick this time.”
Yuan Yigang looked cold and his gaze flickered for a moment, as if he was hesitating about something.
Three seconds later, his gaze became resolute as he slowly spoke, “Wife and son’s blood feud, I know I can’t dissuade you, but personally, I suggest you, hold off!”
Chen Dong frowned at Yuan Yigang.
Yuan Yigang shrugged his shoulders, “But any hidden great power, an existence that can avoid the Hong Society’s probes, rushing to revenge is really not a wise move, it is never too late for a gentleman to take revenge.”
He knew the information of the Gu Family, which he could not conveniently spill out, and could only use such a cryptic tone, expecting to achieve the purpose of persuading Chen Dong.
After saying that, Yuan Yigang waved his hand, turned around and left.
Chen Dong did not see him off and stayed where he was, his brow furrowed.
His mind, which had calmed down after a night of reading the Tao Te Ching, had become volatile again with Yuan Yigang’s words.
Everyone knows how to judge the situation.
But the four words were easy to say, but too difficult to do.
He, Chen Dong, could not even put aside his wife and son’s blood feud because he was afraid of the pressure and the danger he faced.
Such a man is a lord who can take what he wants and put it aside by any means necessary!
In any generation, they can stand at the top of the tide and ride the waves.
Chen Dong raised his hand and rubbed his nose, murmuring in a depressed manner, “I can do whatever it takes, but I really can’t be a lord in my own right.”
Suppressing his emotions, Chen Dong still turned around and pushed his wheelchair towards the ward.
Gu Qingying had slept peacefully for a rare night, and he had to be in front of her when Gu Qingying woke up.
It was only when Chen Dong entered the ward.
He was a little stunned.
Gu Qingying had already woken up, and was sitting on the bed with a sleepy and slack-eyed look.
“Awake so early?”
Looking at Gu Qingying, who was as lazy as a kitten, all of Chen Dong’s emotions turned into tenderness.
To him, it was really a blessing to see Gu Qingying with a sleepy and lazy look for the past two days.
“Well, I didn’t have any nightmares all night, I slept soundly.”
Gu Qingying nodded, raised her finger to point at the earplugs on the bedside table and frowned, “When did you put these earplugs in my ears?”
Chen Dong glanced at the earplugs and smiled gently, “I stuffed them in when you were sleeping last night, so that you could sleep a little more.”
Saying that, Chen Dong raised his hand and scratched the bridge of Gu Qingying’s nose and said with a smile, “You’re up so early, Sister Xiao Lu hasn’t brought breakfast yet, why don’t you sleep for a while?”
Gu Qingying calmly shook her head, but the look in Chen Dong’s eyes suddenly became heartbroken.
Chen Dong was a bit stunned and confused by the change in Gu Qingying’s eyes, staring at him.
He asked in a soft voice.
The moment the words left his mouth.
He was instantly a little confused.
This was because he clearly saw that Gu Qingying’s eyes were gradually fogging up.
The next second.
A voice with a crying tone echoed through the ward.
“Husband, hold off.”
In a flash, Chen Dong was struck by lightning.
He stared at Gu Qingying with a face full of astonishment, his entire body was in a state of bewilderment.
“You …… woke up early and heard it all?”
Gu Qingying lowered her head, her delicate body trembling as she slowly rubbed into Chen Dong’s arms.
Even as she was sobbing, she still spoke with difficulty, “Put it down for now, Yuan Yigang is right, even their forces can’t detect the existence of intelligence, your rash aggressiveness like this will put you in greater danger.”
As he spoke.
Gu Qingying held Chen Dong’s neck with both hands, with some force.
“Ooooooooo …… baby is gone, I don’t want you to be in any more danger.”
“As long as you are well, this matter, we can wait, we can even give up ……”
The cry in his arms was like a sharp knife digging into his heart.
At this moment, the bewildered Chen Dong suddenly had a feeling that the sky was spinning.
The eyes were even blackened for a while.
He felt the trembling of the delicate body in his arms.
Chen Dong’s eyes swished red, and quietly, tears filled his eyes.
Guilt was like a tidal wave, making it hard for him to bear ……
Gu Qingying had done too much for him, endured too much.
He knew Gu Qingying’s pain, and to be able to make such a decision was worse than death for Gu Qingying.
But Gu Qingying …… did it after all!
Listening to the crumbling cries from Gu Qingying in his arms.
Chen Dong’s nasal cavity was instantly sour to the extreme, and a strong feeling of suffocation came rushing in.
His chest felt as if it was completely blocked.
He was lucky to have such a wife in his tenth life!
