Returning From the Fire Chapters 31-40
Chapter 31 A Strange Man’s Name
Zong Zheng looked at Qu Yanyan with regret. He really blamed himself. He made up his mind that no matter what happened, he could not do anything to hurt her. Now he finally understood how high Qu Yanyan’s position in his heart these days!
“Qu Yanyan, hold on. As long as you can wake up, everything will be fine in the future. I really can’t live without you!” After saying this, Qu Yanyan suddenly quieted down as if she had heard something. At least her expression was no longer ferocious.
Only then did Zong Zhengyu feel a little relieved.
Qu Yanyan felt as if she had had a very long dream. She dreamed of a lot of things. In her dream, that person kept apologizing to her, as if she had done something wrong. He held her and gently stroked her head, which made her feel very at ease. This was the first time that she felt so at ease after losing her parents.
She slowly opened her eyes and looked around. The pure white walls and the smell of disinfectant were all telling her that this was a hospital. She didn’t understand why she appeared in the hospital. Last night, she felt very hot, sometimes hot, and sometimes cold, which made her very uncomfortable. It was as if she was stuck in the water and couldn’t move and it was difficult for her to breathe.
She sat up from the bed and turned to look to the side. She found that Zong Zhengyu was lying on the head of the bed as if he was asleep. At this moment, it was dark and blue, as if he hadn’t slept all night. She couldn’t help but think, “Did he guard me all night?” She suddenly felt a little happy. When she was about to speak, there was a little movement at the head of the bed.
It was Zong Zhengyu who woke up. He slowly opened his eyes and saw Qu Yanyan sitting on the bed. He was surprised. Then he quickly got up and hugged her. He kept apologizing to her. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done this. I won’t do such a thing again in the future. I just lost my mind when I saw that photo.”
Qu Yanyan suddenly didn’t know what to do. After a long silence, she asked, “Did you forgive me for the photos of Yousi and me?”
Zong Zhengyu paused for a moment and then replied slowly with a proud expression, “I didn’t forgive you. If you want me to forgive you, it depends on your performance in the future. But now you are still in the hospital, so I won’t pursue this matter for the time being. You should recuperate in the hospital first. Don’t care about the things outside. Leave the rest to me.”
Qu Yanyan nodded.
During this period, Zong Zhengyu was very focused on taking care of Qu Yanyan. He tried his best to do the best for her. He served her personally for meals and drinks, which made her feel flattered. She quickly said, “There is no need to do this to me. I don’t blame you now. I know what happened yesterday was just an accident. You don’t have to care too much.”
“Why are you talking so much nonsense? It’s better for you to suffer and not talk so much. It’s my first time serving a person. Aren’t you happy? Even if you don’t like it, you should behave yourself and don’t say a word.” Zong Zhengyu couldn’t help roaring at her. He served her in person, but the woman was not happy. She didn’t know what was good for her!
Qu Yanyan quickly shook her head. “It’s not that I’m not happy. I just think that if it’s for what happened yesterday! It’s not necessary to take care of me like this. I’m your pet. You don’t have to treat me so seriously. I understand.”
Zong Zhengyu frowned, snorted coldly, and then said to Qu Yanyan, “I told you not to talk nonsense. Well, don’t talk about this. Drink some water. We’ll talk about the rest later.”
She could only take the cup handed over by Zong Zhengyu, take a sip, and put the cup on the table. In fact, he didn’t really want to drink water, but because of the request of Zong Zhengyu, she could only do so.
She didn’t let Zong Zhengyu do this to her because she didn’t want to fall in love with him. She was afraid that he would be too kind to her. One day, she would have to leave him after she got her revenge. What should she do then? She was just a dependent now. How could she dare to love him?
Qu Yanyan, who was lost in thought, was suddenly interrupted by a phone call. She looked at Zong Zhengyu beside her. He shook his head and said that he was fine. She quickly picked up the phone, and Yousi’s cold voice came from the other side of the phone. “Yi Sheng, how are you? I haven’t seen what happened on the Internet these days. I just opened the phone and found that so many things had happened on the Internet. What happened to the picture between us? Why didn’t you come to the crew today? Is it because of this matter?”
The series of questions confused Qu Yanyan. She was silent for a long time before she answered Yousi’s question. “Don’t worry, I’m fine. I’ll solve the issue on the Internet later. You don’t have to worry. I’m in the hospital because of something…”
Seeing that Zong Zhengyu’s expression was not good, she knew that she couldn’t go on. She could only say something else, “I may not be able to film these days. I can’t take care of the crew for a while. Please take care of me. I will send my assistant over. If you have anything to say, you can tell my assistant directly.”
Hearing this conversation, Zong Zhengyu knew that the person who called back was You Si. In fact, he felt very uncomfortable because he had done these things yesterday because of her and You Si. Today, You Si called him, which made Zong Zhengyu realize how detestable he was.
“Leave the crew to me. You don’t have to worry. Take good care of yourself. If there’s anything, just tell me. I’m in the crew. Don’t worry too much.” Yousi naturally agreed very quickly, but he was also very worried about Qu Yanyan’s health. Why did Qu Yanyan go straight to the hospital after they hadn’t seen each other for a day? Did it really have nothing to do with the matter on the Internet?
“I know. I’m very relieved to leave it to you.” Qu Yanyan smiled, but Zong Zhengyu’s face darkened.
“That’s not the case. You’d better take good care of yourself so that you can come back and continue to film.” Yousi hurriedly refused.
When Qu Yanyan was about to speak, Zong Zhengyu suddenly reached out, grabbed her phone, and hung up the phone.
Yousi was stunned. “Why did she hang up? Did something happen?” He couldn’t help worrying about Qu Yisheng.
“Zong Zhengyu, what are you doing?” Qu Yanyan frowned and looked at him. Before she finished her words, she hung up the phone. This was too rude!
Zong Zhengyu glanced at Qu Yanyan with a cold expression. He curved his lips and said with some displeasure, “Qu Yanyan, did you treat me as an invisible person and talk to him like that? Don’t forget that there was just a rumor between you and him yesterday. Do you want to repeat the same thing again?”
Seeing that something was wrong with Zong Zhengyu’s face, Qu Yanyan understood that he was not happy. She and You Si talked so happily, so she immediately went over and hugged him. She said coquettishly, “I really didn’t. I just talked about the crew with him. I really didn’t mean anything else. Don’t be angry, okay? Believe me, okay?”
The Qu Yanyan kept rubbing against him, and then acted like a spoiled child, which was very pleasing. Only then did Zong Zhengyu’s face softened. He touched her head dotingly and then told her, “After returning to the crew, remember to keep a distance from You Si. Do you hear me? I don’t want to be in the headlines again. I’ve tasted almost all the headlines this time!”
Qu Yanyan also nodded quickly and did not dare to refute his words. She knew that she had to follow his words now. Otherwise, if he got angry again, she would suffer a lot.
Zong Zhengyu was very satisfied with Qu Yanyan’s obedient attitude. After showing a very doting smile, he told Qu Yanyan like compensation, “After your play is finished, I will use all the company’s resources to promote your play and help you get the best time and position of major TV stations.”
“Really?” Qu Yanyan looked at Zong Zhengyu in disbelief. She didn’t expect that Zong Zhengyu would spend so much money to invest in her play. It seemed that he had high expectations of her.
“What’s wrong? Don’t you have much confidence?” Zong Zheng smiled and asked.
Qu Yanyan quickly shook her head and said very confidently, “How is that possible? I am very confident in myself. I also know that this drama has such value. Your investment will definitely be very good! Believe me, there will be no mistake!”
Zong Zhengyu nodded. “I hope you won’t let me down.”
“Of course not!”
He raised the corner of his mouth. Seeing that Qu Yanyan was full of fighting spirit, he couldn’t help but touch her head and then said, “I have something to do now and need to go back to the company to deal with it. You can stay here first. If there is anything, you can call me directly. If there is a paparazzi who sneaked in and went crazy, you can ask the nurse to drive him out directly. But the hospitals here generally won’t let the paparazzi in.”
Qu Yanyan nodded, and Zong Zhengyu added, “I’m not at ease if you stay here alone, so I sent someone to accompany you. If you have anything to do, you can find him directly. But you don’t want to listen to what he said to you. That person is a lunatic. Just treat him as a piece of grass.”
The words of Zong Zhengyu made Qu Yanyan very interested. She wanted to know who it was. To be described like this by Zong Zhengyu, he must be a talent!
After Zong Zhengyu left, the ward was not quiet for a long time. Otherwise, a very casual man would come in. She immediately looked at the man with great vigilance.
The man patted the dust on his clothes as if he had just rolled over from the ground. He shook his head and complained, “Oh my god, why did Zong Zhengyu always put himself in this way? Fortunately, I saw him outside and eavesdropped on him. Otherwise, I really didn’t know that this person would speak ill of me behind my back!”
Chapter 32 Su Zhe
Qu Yanyan looked at the man with great vigilance, but when she heard that the man seemed to be very familiar with Zong Zhengyu, she couldn’t help frowning and asked, “Who are you…? You seem to be very familiar with Zong Zhengyu. Why did you come to my ward…”
Hearing Qu Yanyan’s question, the man waved his hand and showed a smile. Then he walked to Qu Yanyan, patted her on the shoulder, and said slowly, “Didn’t Zong Zhengyu just tell you that he would send someone to protect you? I am.”
Qu Yanyan immediately nodded and came to her senses. She finally understood why Zong Jue asked her not to pay attention to the person sent by him. It turned out that it was because this person had a feeling of being a hooligan and he was completely unreliable. Thinking of this, Qu Yanyan nodded and said, “Hello, I am Qu Yisheng. May I know your name?”
“You don’t have to pretend in front of me. I know you are Qu Yanyan. I know everything between you and Zong Zhengyu. I got your identification card for you.” The man smiled and said, “I’m Su Zhe. If you don’t mind, you can call me Brother Su.”
Qu Yanyan suddenly did not know how to answer. It seemed that this person was really hard to explain. After thinking for a long time, she slowly replied, “Are you sure that if I call you that, Zong Zhengyu will not trouble you. Besides, you were eavesdropping outside before, weren’t you? It’s not a good habit to eavesdrop on others. Mr. Su.”
“No, no, no. How can this be considered as eavesdropping? I merely listened to it friendlyly and did not listen. How could I know that this person dared to speak ill of me in front of a beauty? It must be because he was afraid that after I appeared, my beauty would cause you to be hopeless and snatched you away. That’s why he intentionally spoke ill of me!” This shocking narcissism could be described as shameless.
Qu Yanyan was stunned for a long time and carefully looked at this person. This person looked different from Zong Zhengyu, but she might not be able to appreciate this style. She could not help but say, “I’m sorry, I don’t like you. And I feel that Zong Zhengyu is much better than you.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Su Zhe was silent for a long time. Looking at Qu Yanyan, he gradually showed an incredible expression. He couldn’t believe his ears. “How dare you say that I’m not as good-looking as Zong Zhengyu? Did that guy say something bad about me in front of you? Since I was a child, why did everyone say that he was better-looking than me? I’m obviously the most handsome!”
“Maybe it’s because he has a better temperament than you. I don’t think any girl likes a person who has so many words like you…” Qu Yanyan’s words were very heart-wrenching, and she was naturally partial to the royal family. So in the face of Su Zhe’s question, she also felt that the royal family was much better.
Su Zhe immediately showed a very aggrieved expression. After looking at Qu Yanyan for a long time, he complained, “In the past, it was okay for the Imperial Clan to make fun of me, but now the woman of the Imperial Clan wants to make fun of me. How can my life be so miserable? Have you two already made up a good word to hit me?”
Qu Yanyan suddenly didn’t know what to say. She could only pretend to comfort Su Zhe. She laughed and said, “Don’t worry, you are also very good-looking. Maybe some girls like this one, don’t they?”
“Are you sure that you’re comforting me? Why do I feel that you’re beating me? I used to think that you were such a good girl, but now you’ve been brought up by the imperial court?” Su Zhe looked at Qu Yanyan with a very aggrieved expression.
Qu Yanyan was stunned. When she heard Su Zhe’s last sentence, she seemed to feel something was wrong. She immediately asked, “Have you seen me before? Where is it? Why haven’t I seen you before… Are you a pervert? No wonder no girl likes you… They all like Zong Zhengyu.”
Su Zhe quickly waved his hand. He was not such a person. He just remembered that some people clearly cared about the girl, but they insisted on taking him to observe her secretly every day, which made him really like a perverted stalker at that time.
He burst out laughing, and then patted Qu Yanyan on the shoulder, as if he had come over. He said to Qu Yanyan sincerely, “Don’t worry, I’m not such a person. I just met you a few times before. Of course, you didn’t notice me at that time.”
At that time, if you had noticed him, you might have really had to go to the police station to drink tea. The reason was to follow a single woman. He was a handsome man, so he could not have such a stain.
Qu Yanyan frowned. It was obvious that she didn’t believe Su Zhe’s words. But looking at Su Zhe’s hesitant look, she couldn’t continue to ask. She could only nod. “It seems that I didn’t see such a good-looking person like you at that time.”
Su Zhe also nodded in agreement. “I also think you’re not good-looking and didn’t look at me, such a handsome guy. But now, I’m right in front of you. If you think it’s a pity, you can look at me a few more times. Don’t worry, I won’t take your money.”
In the face of Su Zhe’s narcissistic look, Qu Yanyan couldn’t say a word. She could only laugh dryly and brush it off. Then, in the morning, she went to the hospital to chat with Su Zhe. Although she couldn’t stand Su Zhe’s narcissistic character, she had a pleasant chat with Su Zhe.
When You Si returned to the crew to film, he was very worried about Qu Yanyan, who was hospitalized. Originally, he wanted to know which hospital she was in, but the phone was suddenly hung up. He didn’t know what happened, so he had always been very concerned.
When he started filming, something was wrong. He was absent-mindedly thinking about things. Fortunately, there were not many scenes today. The other assistant director had been controlling himself and nothing happened. So when Yousi was in such a state, Su Lan could not help but ask worriedly, “Mr. You, do you have something on your mind? I feel that you are not in a good condition today. If you are not feeling well, you can go back and rest first. I’ll look after you here.”
You Si shook his head to show that he was fine. But when he saw Su Lan, he suddenly remembered that Su Lan seemed to be Qu Yanyan’s assistant. He should know what had happened to Qu Yanyan.
“Do you know what happened to Yi Sheng? Why is she hospitalized in the hospital? The day before yesterday, I saw her very well. Why is she sick after a day?” You Si immediately grabbed Su Lan’s hand and asked.
Su Lan was stunned and didn’t know how to answer. His answer was a little awkward. Should he tell Mr. You that the president’s actions were rough, so he let Sister Qu go to the hospital? It was better not to say such a secret thing about the boudoir.
“Don’t worry, Mr. You. There’s no big problem with Sister Qu. As for the reason, she didn’t tell me. That’s why I’m not very sure either.” Su Lan could only lie to You Si. Otherwise, it would be extremely embarrassing for him to say such things directly. He was still a baby and did not want to do this.
Hearing Su Lan’s words, You Si immediately became disappointed. He didn’t expect that Su Lan, as Qu Yisheng’s assistant, didn’t know about it. Then who else could he find out about Yi Sheng? Only now did he clearly realize that he didn’t know anything about Qu Yisheng at all. His heart suddenly ached.
Seeing You Si’s expression, Su Lan understood that You Si was being troubled. He could only ask, “Mr. You, are you worried that something has happened to Sister Qu? Don’t worry. With the President around, it’s impossible for anything to happen to Sister Qu. The President cares a lot about her.”
“It’s because of the Royal Bloodline that I’m worried that something will happen to Yi Sheng. If she really did something to me, I’ll blame myself.” You Si could be said to have no intention of hiding his hatred for the Imperial Clan. To some extent, it could also be said that he was obsessed with it.
Su Lan didn’t know how to answer. This… it seemed that the president seemed to have offended this Mr. You, which was why Mr. You had such a huge prejudice. However, the only reason why the two of them had such a big misunderstanding was probably Sister Qu. Su Lan couldn’t help but sigh. Sister Qu was really a troublemaker…
“Mr. You, did you misunderstand our president…” Su Lan asked kindly.
You Si looked at him coldly, as if he was saying that there was no need. Su Lan was so speechless that he didn’t know what to do. Then he decided to change the subject and said, “Mr. You, do you want to see Sister Qu? I know which hospital she is in. If you want, I can tell you.”
You Si immediately nodded. He hurriedly approached Su Lan and said, “Go ahead.”
After Su Lan told Yousi the address of the hospital and which ward Qu Yanyan was in, Yousi immediately handed over all the affairs in the crew to Su Lan. After telling Su Lan that he wanted to see Qu Yanyan, he left the crew directly. The shopkeeper was really decisive. Su Lan thought about it silently and couldn’t help but light a candle for himself.
After leaving the crew, You Si could be said to be very anxious. After setting up the plane, he kept urging the driver to hurry up. The driver thought that You Si was seriously ill and was about to die, so he urged himself like this. But for You Si, what was going on with Qu Yisheng? It was really very important.
You Si, who finally arrived at the back of the hospital, also quickly found Qu Yanyan’s ward through the front desk, but was blocked by a person in front of the ward. This person was Su Zhe.
Although Su Zhe didn’t look reliable, it was just a look. For a person who was in a hurry to find the ward of Quyanyan, Su Zhe naturally wouldn’t let Yousi in so easily. In his eyes, Yousi was just a paparazzi who took advantage of the situation and wanted to find some breaking news.
“Who are you? Why are you in front of Yi Sheng’s ward? Why did you stop me from entering?” Yousi looked at Su Zhe, who was tall and strong, standing in front of the ward with a fierce look on his face. He thought that Qu Yanyan was under house arrest by Zong Zhengyu, so he did not allow anyone to go in to visit her. No, he had to save Yi Sheng.
Su Zhe frowned. Hearing that this person seemed to be familiar with Qu Yisheng, he wondered who this person was. It took him a long time to realize that this person might be You Si, who made Zong Jue unhappy. Not long ago, Zong Jue asked him to investigate You Si.
Chapter 33 The Dispute
“Mr. You, Miss Qu is resting. You’d better not go in and disturb others.” Su Zhe looked at You Si seriously. Although he was constantly complaining in his heart, he had to tell him how difficult it was to prevent his rival from entering.
You Si was not convinced by Su Zhe’s words. He felt more and more that it must be Zong Zhengyu who secretly imprisoned Qu Yisheng. It was because of the matter on the Internet. Thinking of it, he immediately said angrily, “Get out of the way. Did Zong Zhengyu ask you to put Yi Sheng under house arrest? The matter on the Internet has nothing to do with Yi Sheng. Why did you imprison her?”
Su Zhe was stunned. What was on You Si’s mind? He had just said a few words. How could You Si think of so many things? Was the writer such a brainless person?
He patted You Si’s shoulder with tears in his eyes and then replied, “Brother, I think you’re thinking too much. We didn’t do that. It’s just that Zong Zheng and Yu are afraid that they will sneak in, so they won’t let anyone in. We really didn’t put Miss Qu under house arrest. Believe me.”
Yousi frowned and looked at Su Zhe for a long time. Then he said suspiciously, “You really didn’t lie to me? Then why did Yi Sheng go to the hospital? Wasn’t it something you did?”
“No, no, no, this has nothing to do with me. If you really want to question me, you can go directly to Zong Zhengyu. I think he can give you a satisfactory answer. I am just a bystander!” Su Zhe shook his head immediately. He did not want to take the blame. It was impossible for Zong Zhengyu to take the blame for what he had done.
You Si still didn’t believe Su Zhe’s words. He snorted and looked at Su Zhe for a long time before he said, “Then let me go in and see what happened to Yi Sheng now. Otherwise, what you said will be good. If I don’t see it, I won’t believe your nonsense.”
It was really the first time for Su Zhe to meet such a stubborn person. He suddenly wanted to hit her heart, but his good self-cultivation calmed him down. “Mr. You, Miss Qu is sleeping. What if you go in and disturb her?”
Yousi was too lazy to talk so much with Su Zhe. This man had been talking to him all the time. Obviously, he had something on his mind. No, he had to go in and see what was going on. Thinking of this, Yousi reached out and pushed Su Zhe away directly, and then rushed inside.
However, it was impossible for Su Zhe to let You Si enter so easily. He directly reached out his hand to grab You Si’s wrist, and then pulled You Si back, stopping him from breaking in.
You Si was not willing to be pulled back just like that and began to fight with Su Zhe. However, Su Zhe seemed to be a master, so he soon suppressed You Si. He said helplessly, “Mr. You, believe me, Miss Qu really has nothing to do. You’d better give up the idea of breaking in.”
Zong Zhengyu was really trying to prevent his rival in love from entering, but he had put in a lot of effort. When he came back, he would definitely give him a good beating!
“Let me go. If you don’t let me in, then you have a guilty conscience!” You Si suddenly erupted, wishing to break free from Su Zhe’s shackles. However, Su Zhe’s hand didn’t move at all, as if it was a chain, firmly controlling his hand, not giving him the slightest chance to resist.
The two were in a stalemate, and neither of them gave in to each other. Of course, most of them were still suppressed by Su Zhe. Although Yousi was not as skillful as Su Zhe, with his meticulous mind, every time he attacked, Su Zhe would have a headache. Su Zhe couldn’t help but think that he was crazy or something. He actually wanted to take such a job for himself. It was really troublesome!
“Big brother, let’s let go of each other. A gentleman doesn’t do anything. If we have something to say, let’s talk about it. There’s no need to keep fighting.” Su Zhe could only comfort the excited You Si first. Otherwise, he didn’t have the mood to fight with You Si like this.
“I don’t have anything to say to you. Get out of my way and let me go in and have a look at Yi Sheng. If you stop me like this, it will prove that you have a guilty conscience!” Yousi glanced at Su Zhe and moved his wrist, which had been scratched. This person was obviously a professional person. How could he rest assured when such a person was standing in front of Yi Sheng’s ward?
Su Zhe really didn’t know what to say to let this Buddha understand that Qu Yanyan was really fine.
Qu Yanyan had a good sleep and had a very good dream. When she couldn’t help but wake up, she suddenly heard the sounds of fighting and quarrel outside, which made her unable to wake up from her dream. She opened her eyes and sat up. She heard Su Zhe’s helpless voice, “Big brother, I’m begging you. Can you go back?”
She couldn’t help frowning. What was going on? Before she could react, You Si’s voice came from outside. “If you don’t let me see Yi Sheng today, I will never go back!”
You Si? Qu Yanyan looked at the door in great surprise. Then, through the crack in the door, she could vaguely hear You Si’s voice. She couldn’t help but think of how You Si found her. Then, she discovered that someone had sent her a text message. She opened it and saw that it was from Su Lan. He said that she had told You Si the address of her hospital and told her to be careful.
Now she understood how Yousi got here. She could only shake her head and said to the outside, “Su Zhe, Yousi, stop. What are you doing? I’ve only slept for a while. How did something happen?”
You Si was overjoyed when he heard Qu Yanyan’s voice. Then he said to the ward, “Yi Sheng, are you okay? Did Zong Zhengyu do anything to you? If he did anything bad to you, tell me immediately!”
Su Zhe shook his head helplessly. He had said it for a long time. Yousi just didn’t believe him. What else could he do? He was very desperate…
“Su Zhe, let You Si in. If there’s anything, I’ll go talk to Zong Zhengyu. Don’t worry, I won’t let you do it.” Qu Yanyan guessed that it was because of some order from Zong Zhengyu. He asked him to keep watch and not let anyone in, so You Si was kept outside. Then You Si thought that Zong Zhengyu had done something to him, so they started fighting.
He really didn’t know what to say.
Su Zhe glanced at Yousi, shrugged his shoulders, and explained, “Big brother, do you think I lied to you? Miss Qu really did nothing. Why don’t you believe me? I have explained to you for so long, and you are almost drooling!”
Yousi snorted coldly and ignored Su Zhe. Instead, he bypassed Su Zhe, pushed open the door, and walked in directly, ignoring Su Zhe completely. This made Su Zhe angry. How could this person be so ungrateful? Why did the rival of Zong Zheng and Zong Jue look like this? They looked down on him so much!
Despite his thoughts, Su Zhe accepted his fate and shrugged. He followed Yousi into the ward and closed the door.
“Yi Sheng, why did you suddenly stay in the hospital? Is it because of the matter spread online? Do you need me to make a statement? This matter has nothing to do with you. It’s all my fault that you fell into such a situation.” Yousi came over and immediately asked Qu Yanyan with great concern.
Qu Yanyan shook her head. Of course, she would not tell You Si why she went to the hospital. You Si was very unhappy that she had a little intimate relationship with Zong Zhengyu. If she told him the reason, You Si would never pay attention to her anymore. She would sign the next book for her. It was impossible for Qu Yanyan to do such a thing.
“Don’t worry, Yousi. I’m fine. I just caught a cold suddenly and went to the hospital to recuperate. I can be considered to have avoided the limelight for the time being. Is there any paparazzi in the crew today?” Qu Yanyan looked at Yousi with a smile and asked about the crew.
Yousi shook his head. He was also very curious about this matter. Why was it so sensational yesterday? Today, there was no paparazzi outside the crew. “You have to take good care of your health. It’s getting cold these days. You should wear more clothes and don’t let yourself catch a cold.”
Qu Yanyan nodded awkwardly, and then quickly changed the subject. “Did something happen? Why do you suddenly want to come to the hospital to see me? Did the crew encounter any problems?”
“No, it was just that when you suddenly called me, you hung up before you could finish your words. I thought you had something else to say, so I was very worried. Then I asked Su Lan for the address of your hospital. But looking at your face now, it seems that you are fine, so I am relieved a lot.” You Si explained to Qu Yanyan.
Looking at the harmonious atmosphere between the two people, Su Zhe suddenly felt bad. He understood why Zong Zhengyu was so unhappy with Yousi. It turned out that he was a strong opponent. He secretly smiled a few times, then took out his mobile phone and secretly sent a message to Zong Zhengyu. He had done his best.
“Nothing. I just accidentally hung up the phone. When I was about to call him, my phone was out of power. I thought nothing happened.” Qu Yanyan couldn’t help complaining in her heart. It was all because of him that he suddenly hung up. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have done such a thing.
Yousi nodded and accepted Qu Yanyan’s explanation.
“How is the progress of the crew now? I can’t go to the crew these days. Please keep an eye on it for me. Don’t let the progress fall.” Thinking of this, Qu Yanyan hurriedly told Yousi.
You Si also nodded to show that he understood. He then smiled and said, “You’re really a workaholic. You’re already in the hospital, yet you still remember to think about the production team. However, it’s all thanks to you. With Su Lan helping me, it wouldn’t be too difficult.”
“As long as I can help you. Ah, it’s really a blessing for me that you can come here. It’s really boring to stay here. I don’t know what to do.” Qu Yanyan really felt bored, especially in the clean environment of the hospital, which made her feel depressed.
Yousi smiled slightly. “It’s good to make you feel less bored. If you find it boring to stay here, you can let me accompany you at any time. I will definitely take time out.”
Qu Yanyan also nodded quickly.
Chapter 34 The Fight Between the Two
The two of them chatted very happily, and they talked about the plot. Looking at the extremely harmonious atmosphere, Su Zhe couldn’t help shaking his head. “Why haven’t you come to the Imperial Clan? If you hadn’t come, your wife would have been taken away! Why haven’t I seen this Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Imperial Clan’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family’s Family
After thinking for a long time, Su Zhe decided to call Zong Zhengyu. He found that the two didn’t seem to notice him. Then he took out his mobile phone and quickly dialed Zong Zhengyu’s number. However, for some reason, Zong Zhengyu didn’t answer his phone at all. He called several times but didn’t get through. Su Zhe was so disappointed that he crazily sent several text messages to Zong Zhengyu.
“If he doesn’t come, I won’t be responsible for his wife’s kidnapping. I’ve warned him before.” Thinking of this, Su Zhe put his mobile phone back in silence. Then he thought that maybe Zong Zhengyu was in a meeting, so he didn’t notice so much. Hey, should he think of a way to interrupt the conversation between the two first?”
“Yi Sheng, what do you think of this plot? Do you need to change it? I came here today to talk about it, but something happened to you, so I had no choice but to skip this plot for the time being. I’ll discuss it after you come back.” You Si glanced at Qu Yanyan and smiled.
Qu Yanyan nodded. You Si knew his book best, and he wanted to change the plot. She seriously thought that it was actually more effective to promote the plot, so she had no objection. Instead, she replied with a smile, “You are the script, so you naturally understand the plot, so I am very relieved. What’s more, the plot you chose is really good. You are indeed a master.”
Hearing Qu Yanyan’s words, You Si couldn’t help but smile. He actually liked what she said very much. Moreover, when he saw that she only had him in her eyes, he inexplicably felt much happier. “After listening to you, my mood is much better. The depression from the previous quarrel with that person has almost dissipated.”
“I’m still very happy to make you happy. What happened to you yesterday? Why didn’t you come to the crew? Did something happen at home? Or…” Qu Yanyan suddenly remembered that Yousi didn’t come to visit her yesterday. She was very surprised that Yousi would ask for leave.
Yousi was stunned. He shook his head and waved his hand. “Nothing. I was just thinking about the plot at home and wanted to modify the script. I didn’t expect that so many things would happen when I modified the script. In fact, when I got up the next day to look at my mobile phone, I was a little confused. I didn’t expect that there would be so many things. I was stunned for a long time before I thought of calling you.”
“It’s okay. Don’t worry too much about it. When I recover, I will issue a statement to solve these problems. Now that the public opinion has been turned around, you don’t have to worry so much.” Qu Yanyan smiled slightly. She gave You Si a reassuring look. In fact, she was quite confident. Besides, the department’s public relations had been done in time, so the situation didn’t worsen.
Yousi nodded and asked with some concern, “Is there really no problem? Don’t pretend to be strong. If you really encounter something, feel free to come to me.”
“Thank you…” Qu Yanyan frowned.
After the meeting, Zong Zhengyu took out his mobile phone and was about to call Qu Yanyan. He wanted to ask her if anything had happened to her and how the situation was. As soon as he turned on the mobile phone, he saw a lot of phone calls. He saw a lot of missed calls from Su Zhe on the mobile phone screen. He couldn’t help frowning, and then he saw the crazy news of Su Zhe.
Su Zhe: Hey, president, your rival in love is here. Are you sure you don’t want to come and have a look?
Su Zhe: “President, I called you but you didn’t answer. If you really didn’t come, your real wife would have been abducted.”
Su Zhe: “Are you really not coming yet? Well, I’ve already warned you. If your wife is really abducted, don’t come to me!”
There were a lot of messages sent by Su Zhe, but the meaning was almost the same. He narrowed his eyes and couldn’t help frowning. How did You Si find the address of Qu Yanyan’s hospital, and how could he find the ward directly? Was the hospital’s management so poor now? Zong Zhengyu was unhappy, and then he quickly abandoned all the affairs in his hands and drove to the hospital.
As soon as she pushed open the door of the ward, You Si’s low laughter could be heard. It seemed that he was very happy to talk with Qu Yanyan, but this pleasure made Zong Zhengyu’s expression become gloomy. He had obviously warned You Si, but he was unwilling to stay away from Qu Yanyan. It was really annoying. Now he even found the ward.
“It seems that you are all very happy to talk. Why don’t you add me as well? We can only be happy when there are more people, right?” Zong Zhengyu came over coldly and glanced at You Si. Then he looked at Qu Yanyan and gave her a threatening look. It seemed that he was saying, “Qu Yanyan, you are dead!”
Qu Yanyan was stunned and shrank back in fear. She didn’t expect that Zong Zhengyu would come. It was not the time to get off work yet. Thinking of this, Qu Yanyan saw Su Zhe, who was laughing aside. She immediately understood that it must be Su Zhe who told Zong Zhengyu secretly! She inexplicably felt very guilty. Originally, it was very normal to chat with Yousi, but when she saw Zong Zhengyu, she couldn’t come with confidence.
When Yousi saw Zong Zhengyu coming over, he immediately showed a cold expression, as if he was very unhappy with Zong Zhengyu. It could be said that he was very clear. “What are you doing here? I’m having a good chat with Yi Sheng. Why do you seem to be very free, Zong Zhengyu, the president who is in charge of everything every day?”
In the face of You Si’s hostility, Zong Zhengyu didn’t show any emotion. You Si looked cold, but in fact, he was still a little childish. He did things childishly, and everything was written on his face. “Mr. You, Yi Sheng is my woman. Isn’t it normal for me to come to see her? I want to ask how Mr. You found this place?”
“Yi Sheng’s assistant, Su Lan, told me that I am Yi Sheng’s friend. Why can’t I find this place to visit Yi Sheng? On the other hand, Mr. Zong has been hiding it all this time, as if there is something shady!” You Si stared coldly at Zong Zhengyu, as if he could start a fight with Zong Zhengyu in the next second. It could be said that he hated Zong Zhengyu very much.
Upon hearing Su Lan’s name, Zong Zhengyu immediately glanced at Su Zhe. Su Zhe was also stunned. He didn’t expect his younger brother to tell You Si about it. Seeing the cold expression in Zong Zhengyu’s eyes, it was obvious that he was telling him to take good care of his younger brother. Sigh… couldn’t this younger brother grow up? It was obvious that he was competing with the president for a woman. He even told him the address of the hospital.
“I have nothing to hide, but I have something to ask Mr. You. Why did you hold my woman? You even gave others a chance to take her down. Do you know how great the blow is to Yi Sheng?” Zong Zhengyu sat on the other side of Qu Yanyan and touched her forehead very skillfully. He felt normal and was relieved.
Due to the warmth of the Imperial Noble’s hand, Qu Yanyan’s face immediately turned red. She really did not expect that the Imperial Noble would suddenly touch her forehead. She obviously knew that the Imperial Noble only wanted to check if her temperature had dropped, but she could not help but be tempted. The Imperial Noble was like a poppy. Although she knew that something was wrong, she still wanted to sink deeply into it.
When You Si saw Qu Yanyan’s slightly red cheeks, he couldn’t help but feel a heavy blow in his heart. He didn’t want to see this scene at first, but now he really felt that Qu Yisheng didn’t have any feelings for him at all. He was really jealous of Zong Zhengyu. Why could he make Qu Yisheng care so much, but he couldn’t? Was it because she lost the beautiful memory between the two of them?
“It’s just a normal hug between friends. Do you think there’s anything wrong with it? Who took this picture? I didn’t expect it to become like this!” Yousi put away the pain in his eyes and looked at Zong Zhengyu. The two of them were sitting face to face. They were fighting with each other, which made Qu Yanyan, who was caught in the middle, very uncomfortable.
“No matter what you think, the media, who have always wanted to stir up trouble, won’t have such a good idea. Of course, they think you have some hidden secrets, so Mr. You, for the sake of you and Yi Sheng, you’d better stay away from Yi Sheng.” Zong Zhengyu still looked calm, and his words seemed to make sense.
Yousi wouldn’t be so stupid. He believed that Zong Zhengyu was doing it for his own good. He just wanted him to stay away from Qu Yisheng. Of course, he wouldn’t let him succeed. He smiled coldly and said, “Yi Sheng is my friend. The relationship between the two of us should be settled properly. The innocent should not care about what the media think!”
Zong Zhengyu sneered. He really didn’t care about You Si’s naive idea at all. He sneered at You Si and said, “Mr. You, not everyone can be like you. You may not care, but Yi Sheng is a girl who needs fame very much. Now she is being criticized on the Internet. Can you help her with this idea? Do you think it’s possible?”
You Si suddenly couldn’t say a word. Zong Zhengyu’s words were very reasonable. He couldn’t refute anything and could only keep silent. Zong Zhengyu did think more than You Si. You Si never stepped into the entertainment circle, so he didn’t know how bad the entertainment circle was, so he couldn’t maintain the quality of a lotus. But Zong Zhengyu had always been in this circle, so he understood the bad nature of this circle very well.
“It seems that Mr. You has understood what I mean. Since you have understood what I mean, please keep a distance from Yi Sheng in the future. Yi Sheng can’t stand these Internet violence.” Zong Zhengyu was very clear about You Si’s character, so he could grasp You Si’s weakness and make use of it. He knew You Si’s cold character. He didn’t expect that there were so many evil things. This was also the reason why his book was so popular.
Chapter 35 Su Zhe, the Genius of Wisdom
Looking at Yousi’s depressed look, Qu Yanyan still couldn’t bear it. Although what Zong Zhengyu said was true, there was no need to say it so miserably. She quickly said, “Zongyu, things are not so serious. Why are you so miserable? Yousi has never been in this circle, so he doesn’t know the mystery here!”
In fact, Zong Zhengyu was a little unhappy that Qu Yanyan spoke for You Si, but he didn’t want her to be angry. He snorted and said nothing more. “If you have the mood to talk so much, you’d better think about how to explain it to the public at that time. Although I have suppressed the matter, there is no explanation. They will not let it go.”
“I know. I’ll find a way to explain it to them. But I won’t let go of those spreading rumors. I’ll definitely find a way to hold them accountable!” Qu Yanyan looked out of the window coldly. She would never let go of Gu Yusheng and Xu Rui’er. At least, she would never let them off.
Seeing such a spirited Qu Yanyan, Zong Zhengyu smiled and touched her head. He said very dotingly, “I will help you. Don’t worry, you just need to make a good scene and leave the rest to me.”
Qu Yanyan quickly nodded, and her cheeks turned red unexpectedly. Zong Zhengyu’s doting eyes were simply against the rules. She couldn’t resist at all. She quickly covered her face and tried to cool herself down. Then she said, “Thank you, Zong Zhengyu. I’m really happy to have you help me.”
Seeing this scene, You Si’s eyes darkened. He pursed his lips and clenched his sleeves to calm himself down. He looked at Zong Zhengyu and said, “Yi Sheng, I’m sorry. I didn’t think so much. I’d better deal with the media. It was me who caused it. It’s my fault that you were hurt so badly.”
Qu Yanyan quickly shook her head. She could not let You Si come. It was more reasonable for her to explain this kind of thing, and there was no look or name in the photo. If You Si came out, it would definitely be the opposite. This situation was definitely not what she wanted to see. “It’s okay, I can handle this matter, you don’t have to worry. As long as you help me take good care of the crew, it will be very helpful to me.”
“Well, if anything really happens, you must come to me!” Yousi looked at Qu Yanyan with concern.
On one side, Zong Zhengyu interrupted the topic coldly and said with a smile, “I think that if Mr. You and Yi Sheng keep a distance, it will be the greatest help for Yi Sheng.”
Yousi immediately glared at Zong Zhengyu, trembling with anger. “Zong Zhengyu really knows how to take advantage of the situation. He keeps asking me to stay away from Qu Yisheng, but Yousi will definitely not do that. He finally found Qu Yisheng, how could he give him to Zong Zhengyu so easily? As long as he is willing to wait, sooner or later, Qu Yisheng will come back to me!”
Zong Zhengyu showed a proud smile. How could a person like You Si say something like that to him? He showed a victorious expression. Feeling the tension between them, Qu Yanyan could only shake her head helplessly. If it weren’t for her, they would have fought directly.
But she couldn’t say anything and could only temporarily let the two separate. She thought for a moment and said to Yousi, “Yousi, the crew hasn’t finished filming yet, why did you suddenly come over? Didn’t you promise me that you would help me take good care of the crew? Even if you really want to come to see a doctor, it has to be after the crew’s business.”
You Si suddenly couldn’t say a word. He couldn’t tell Qu Yanyan that he didn’t care about the crew until she was hospitalized. He directly left everything to Su Lan and then went straight to the hospital. He really wanted to know more about Qu Yanyan because he was really worried about her.
The tactful idea of persuading You Si to leave was immediately noticed by Zong Jue. He snorted and said to You Si, “Mr. You, this is the first time that your book has been photographed. Are you sure you don’t want to pay attention to it?”
You Si was naturally very concerned about it. Now that he knew Qu Yanyan’s situation, he did not stay in her ward any longer. He told her a few things about the crew and hurried back to the crew. It had to be said that Qu Yanyan knew very well about You Xi’s love for books. Fortunately, You Si went back so obediently. Otherwise, he would not know what would happen to him and Zong Zheng if he continued to stay.
After Yousi left, Su Zhe, who had been silent for a long time, suddenly ran over. He sat in the previous position of Yousi and then said to Qu Yanyan, “He’s finally gone. You don’t know how annoying Yousi is. I told you that she’s fine. He insisted that I lied to him. I’m such a honest person. How could I lie to him?”
Looking at Su Zhe’s aggrieved look, Qu Yanyan seriously thought about it and then said to Su Zhe, “Do you really think that you are very honest? Don’t you know how unreliable your appearance looks? No one would believe your words.”
“What you said is a little heart-wrenching. Old Iron, am I not reliable enough? If I am unreliable, I will work so hard to find Zong Zhengyu. I am afraid that You Si will kidnap you, but Zong Zhengyu will come to me to make trouble!” Su Zhe showed a very aggrieved expression. He was really a very reliable person. How could everyone be willing to believe him?
Zong Zhengyu glanced at Su Zhe. He told himself that Yousi had done a good job in the text of Su Zhe, so he reluctantly decided to praise Su Zhe. “You have only done such a reliable thing. I hope you can continue to work hard. Also, when I was not around, did you talk nonsense with Yanyan? I don’t want her to be assimilated by such an idiot like you.”
Su Zhe looked at Zong Zhengyu in shock. He pretended to be heartbroken by Zong Zhengyu. Pointing at Zong Zhengyu, he said in a muffled voice, “You, Zong Zhengyu, we grew up together. How dare you say that to me? If I’m an idiot, then as my friend, what are you?”
“I just think that you are an idiot and sympathize with you, so I reluctantly became your friend. Otherwise, what do you think it is?” Zong Zhengyu suddenly showed a slightly harsh smile. It seemed that his relationship with Su Zhe was really good. In short, Qu Yanyan had never seen him fight with someone like this.
Su Zhe was about to burst into tears. He immediately lay on the bed and sought Qu Yanyan’s comfort. He looked at Qu Yanyan with great grievance and then complained, “Did you see how bad this man is? Miss Qu, you’d better find a way to leave this guy quickly. This person is really too bad! How could he hit me like this?”
“He is just mean to you, but he is not mean to me. And in fact, I have the same opinion as Zong Zhengyu!” After saying this, Qu Yanyan chuckled a few times, then hugged Zong Zhengyu, buried her face in his chest, and rubbed it happily.
Zong Zhengyu was very satisfied with Qu Yanyan’s initiative. He reached out and directly took her from the hospital bed to himself. Then he put his hands around Qu Yanyan’s waist and kissed her forehead. He said very dotingly, “You are good at acting like a spoiled child. Don’t talk to this guy anymore. He is such a person. If I don’t scold him for a day, I won’t feel comfortable!”
Looking at the two people showing their love, as a single dog, Su Zhe felt that he had been greatly insulted. He quickly covered his eyes and complained very sadly, “Do you have any morality? Don’t you know that there is a single person nearby? If you want to show off your love, go back to your own home. This is a hospital, and the public situation is clear!”
Zong Zhengyu was too lazy to argue with Su Zhe. He only had one sentence for Su Zhe’s dissatisfaction. “If you are not happy, you can find one yourself, so as not to let me let you have a blind date every day, right?”
Su Zhe still looked sad. He let go of his hand that covered his eyes and said in an extremely uncomfortable voice, “You don’t know my mother. I always feel that I have a good relationship with Longyang, and then try my best to find a blind date for me. I have told her many times. I don’t like men, but she just doesn’t listen. What can I do? I am also desperate…”
Upon hearing Su Zhe’s desperate shout, Qu Yanyan couldn’t help but smile. She didn’t expect that Su Zhe had such a mother. She suddenly said, “Then you might as well take it seriously. Anyway, your mother also firmly believes in you. And maybe you will open the gate of the new world like this, right?”
“It’s absolutely impossible. There’s no such thing. Why do you like to tease me like Zong Zhengyu?” Su Zhe complained directly, but then he snorted and pointed at Zong Zhengyu, saying, “Are you sure you want to say that? My mother always thought that I had an affair with him. She thought that I had defiled him, so she always wanted me to have a blind date. I don’t understand. Even if Zong Zhengyu and I are really together, why did I tarnish him instead of him?”
Su Zhe was so empty that Qu Yanyan couldn’t hold back her laughter. Lying on top of Zong Zhengyu, she couldn’t stand straight. Then she looked at him and asked curiously, “Did you really think so? No way, how could you cheat your son like this? I will definitely have a good look at her mother that day!”
“Do you want to see my mother? My mother will be very happy because she finally doesn’t have to worry about me having an affair with Zong Zhengyu. In this way, I can escape from the miserable life of blind dates!” Su Zhe agreed with this proposal and nodded quickly. “In this way, I will have time to hang out outside, so that my mother will always think that I am fooling around!”
Chapter 36 “Apologize”
Qu Yanyan shook her head. She suddenly felt lost. If she really went to see Su Zhe’s mother, what kind of identity would she have? Thinking of this, she smiled and shook her head. “No, I guess I don’t have much time to go out and hang out in the future. I still have to film. How can I have time to see your mother? You’d better pray.”
Su Zhe suddenly exclaimed, and then, like a deflated ball, he collapsed to the side, showing a very aggrieved expression. He still couldn’t believe it and said, “Do you really want to treat me like this? I really don’t want to go on a blind date anymore. My mother has arranged another blind date for me these days. I really can’t live anymore. Who can save me…”
Zong Zhengyu directly broke Su Zhe’s thoughts. He sneered and said, “You’d better find a girl to bring back to your home quickly, or your mother will never let you go. Even if she knows that I have a girlfriend, she will definitely say that I already have a girlfriend. You can’t let her go. Don’t you know your mother’s character? Why are you daydreaming?”
Su Zhe was so frustrated.
Gu Yusheng, who went to the crew again, found it strange that he didn’t see Qu Yanyan. He asked Su Lan, “Where is your chief director? Why didn’t you see him…”
When Su Lan saw that it was Gu Yusheng, he asked very cautiously, “Mr. Gu, what can I do for you, Sister Qu?”
Feeling Su Lan’s hostility towards him, Gu Yusheng felt a little baffled. However, he did not say it out loud. Instead, he said with a gentle smile, “When I saw the news on the internet, I was a little worried and came over to take a look. However, when I did not see her, I felt that it was very strange. I wanted to ask her where she was, so I could come and talk to her.”
Su Lan naturally did not believe this so-called conversation between Gu Yusheng and Gu Yusheng. Moreover, he also wanted to properly reprimand this Gu Yusheng, so he said directly, “Mr. Gu, you came to the crew every day to talk about something with Sister Qu, but you didn’t see what Mr. Gu and Sister Qu were talking about, so why did you come to the crew?”
Gu Yusheng had been rebutted by someone younger than him. He instantly did not know what to say. Moreover, Su Lan had even gone straight to the point, causing him to be even more at a loss as to what to say. He paused and then said, “You’ve misunderstood. I really do have something to discuss with your chief director.”
With this in mind, Su Lan could only sneer. “Mr. Gu, our crew is very busy, and there are more things about the chief director. It’s a great burden for our crew to delay the chief director’s time every day. Mr. Gu is also a member of this industry. Can’t you be clear in your heart? We have made it clear enough. Please take care of yourself, Mr. Gu. Our chief director is in the hospital recently. You’d better not come to our chief director. She is not free!”
After saying these words, Su Lan shrugged his shoulders and left. He didn’t take Gu Yusheng seriously at all. He had to say that Su Lan was young and aggressive, so he was completely unafraid of Gu Yusheng. Or rather, it could be said that there was even Zong Jue standing in his way. Although Su Lan and Zong Zhengyu didn’t grow up together, they were still considered half of the younger brothers of Zong Jue. Thus, they were very upright in their daily conversation.
Gu Yusheng couldn’t say a word. Looking at Su Zhe’s back, he clenched his hands tightly. This was the first time that he had been humiliated so mercilessly. Even Zong Zhengyu was just warning him and didn’t dare to rebuke him so openly. This person was very good, and he remembered it!
However, Gu Yusheng also learned some information from what Su Lan had said. “Is Qu Yisheng in the hospital? It’s only been a day since we last met. What happened to Qu Yisheng? It’s so serious that he wants to stay in the hospital.” Thinking of Zong Zhengyu’s warning attitude before, he suddenly understood and was more sure that he was going to push Xu Rui’er out to be a scapegoat. Anyway, it was because Xu Rui’er was the main cause of this matter, and it had nothing to do with him!”
When Gu Yusheng returned home, he saw Xu Rui’er, who had been sitting on the sofa with a gloomy look. He organized his words and then said to Xu Rui’er, who was absent-minded, “Xu Rui’er, I have to tell you something bad. The thing you did has been so serious that Qu Yisheng has been hospitalized. Think about it, it’s impossible for Zong Zhengyu to let you go. Xu Rui’er, let’s see how you get away this time!”
Xu Rui’er trembled and couldn’t say anything. She had been suffering these days and didn’t know when she would be punished or what would happen to her. So she kept thinking about it, which led to her poor spirit these days. The dark circles under her eyes, which usually didn’t appear, covered her eyes, making her look like a person who hadn’t slept for many days.
Seeing that Xu Rui’er was not in a good condition, Gu Yusheng walked over and pinched her chin. When he looked up, he saw Xu Rui’er’s face full of horror. Gu Yusheng was stunned and sneered, “Who do you think you are doing this for now? If I had known this, why did you do this at the beginning? If you hadn’t done this, you wouldn’t have become like this.”
Xu Rui’er trembled for a moment, and then quickly grabbed the hem of Gu Yusheng’s clothes and begged him. She asked, “Now that the Imperial Clan’s Jue Zheng has never come to me for trouble, are you letting me go? Or are you going to torture me once and for all?”
“If you really want Zong Zhengyu not to do it himself, you should apologize to Qu Yisheng as soon as possible. Otherwise, when he remembers what you have done, you won’t have a good ending!” Gu Yusheng was good at bluffing people. The threatening words and the gloomy expression on his face made Xu Rui’er dare not breathe.
Xu Rui’er nodded quickly. She knew that she had to apologize to Qu Yisheng, but she was not reconciled to it. She was not willing to be inferior to Qu Yanyan when she was alive. After Qu Yanyan died, she could not even compare with her sister!
“How can I apologize? I don’t know where Qu Yisheng is. Do you want me to apologize to Zong Zhengyu? When Zong Zhengyu sees me, he will definitely kill me! I will never do that!” Thinking of the horrible Zong Zhengyu, she immediately shook her head. Obviously, she was very resistant.
Seeing Xu Rui’er like this, Gu Yusheng knew that he couldn’t push her too hard. He sat down beside Xu Rui’er, gently touched her face, and comforted the frightened Xu Rui’er. Then he said slowly, “Don’t worry too much. Rui’er, you just need to call Qu Yisheng. If you sincerely apologize, Qu Yisheng won’t do anything to you.”
Xu Rui’er was stunned. In the face of Gu Yusheng’s comforting words, she still didn’t believe it. But Gu Yusheng’s confident look made her feel at ease. She nodded without any doubt. “I know. I will call Qu Yisheng. Yusheng, thank you. I knew you wouldn’t abandon me!”
Gu Yusheng did not say much, but directly held Xu Rui’er in his arms. His movements were gentle, as if he was treating his favorite person. In fact, he was just giving an illusion to Xu Rui’er. He only wanted Xu Rui’er to go out and be a scapegoat for him. What happened afterward had nothing to do with him. He only hoped that Zongyu could kill Xu Rui’er, so that he would not be threatened by Xu Rui’er’s evidence.
With Gu Yusheng’s suggestion, Xu Rui’er acted very quickly and called Qu Yisheng directly. Beside her, Gu Yusheng had been watching her silently, which made Xu Rui’er feel much more relieved, and her fear of the Imperial Clan’s governor also dissipated a lot.
Xu Rui’er suddenly called her. In fact, Qu Yanyan was a little confused. She didn’t expect that Xu Rui’er would suddenly call her at this time. However, Qu Yanyan didn’t think too much and directly picked up the phone. “Mrs. Gu, what’s the matter? Why did you suddenly call me?”
Hearing the voice of Qu Yisheng, Xu Rui’er wanted to say everything, but she couldn’t say anything for a while. She opened her mouth and remained silent for a long time.
Qu Yanyan didn’t hear Xu Rui’er’s reply, but she still couldn’t figure out what it meant. She asked a few more questions, “Mrs. Gu? Mrs. Gu…”
“What’s going on? Why did he call me without saying a word? If he came to show off in front of me, he would not keep silent all the time. What on earth is Xu Rui’er doing?” Qu Yanyan frowned. When she was about to hang up the phone, Xu Rui’er suddenly said, “Qu Yisheng!”
“Mrs. Gu, what’s the matter?” Qu Yanyan finally heard Xu Rui’er’s voice. She, who was about to hang up the phone, also let go of her hand and replied.
Xu Rui’er looked at Gu Yusheng beside her. Feeling the encouragement in Gu Yusheng’s eyes, she suddenly became more bold. She said directly to the other side of the phone, “Qu Yisheng, I did all those things on the Internet. I’m sorry. I was just angry that you were involved with Yu Sheng, so I did such a thing.”
“Xu Rui’er is here to apologize?” She was a little confused at the knowledge of Qu Yanyan. She didn’t expect that it would be like this. As arrogant as Xu Rui’er was, she was willing to come and apologize to her. It must be Gu Yusheng who had done something. Then why did Gu Yusheng want Xu Rui’er to apologize to her?
Obviously, it was not possible for Xu Rui’er to become so famous on the Internet, so Gu Yu’er was the only one who could become like this. Gu Yu’er wanted Xu Rui’er to be a scapegoat, so that she could vent her anger on her.
Gu Yusheng, Gu Yusheng, you did a good job. Unfortunately, she was not the kind of person who could be played by you!
Thinking of this, Qu Yanyan smiled. She said slowly, “Mrs. Gu, I know that you’re just angry. And I don’t mean to blame you now. How about this? If Mrs. Gu really wants to apologize, it’s better to talk to you face to face. It’s better to come with Mr. Gu so that we can make things clearer, right?”
Xu Rui’er frowned at Qu Yanyan’s request. She didn’t understand what she wanted to do, but for her, Qu Yisheng’s attitude was still good. She didn’t seem to want to make things worse. She was relieved. Then she nodded and agreed to Qu Yanyan’s request. “Okay, tell me the address. I will come with Yu Sheng.”
Chapter 37 Conspiracy
The corners of Qu Yanyan’s lips curled into a smile. She knew that Xu Rui’er would definitely agree to this matter, so she did not think too much about it. Instead, she directly asked Xu Rui’er and Gu Yusheng to come here with her. She must have her own ideas. Anyway, she would definitely not let the two of them live a good life! She told Xu Rui’er the address of her hospital.
“Since I have already told you the address, I hope that Mr. Gu and Mrs. Gu will not break their words. I am not the kind of person who is easy to talk to. If I give you a chance, you should seize it. Is there anything else Mrs. Gu needs to do? If there is nothing else, I will hang up the phone.” Qu Yanyan smiled slightly. Her words were actually a warning to Xu Rui’er, which made her a little afraid.
Xu Rui’er didn’t want to continue with Qu Yanyan. When Qu Yanyan said that she wanted to hang up the phone, she naturally nodded quickly, as if she couldn’t wait to hang up. She couldn’t wait to hang up the phone. In short, she wanted to end the call as soon as possible. “No, no, hang up. You hang up. I will find time to go to your place as soon as possible.”
“Okay, goodbye, Mrs. Gu.” Knowing what Xu Rui’er was thinking, Qu Yanyan did not torture Xu Rui’er and hung up the phone directly. She thought that Xu Rui’er must have had a conversation with Gu Yusheng, so Gu Yusheng asked Xu Rui’er to come and apologize. Then Xu Rui’er naturally became a scapegoat.
After Xu Rui’er hung up the phone, she showed a very confused expression. She did not know why Qu Yisheng asked her to come with Gu Yusheng. It was obvious that this matter had nothing to do with Gu Yusheng. Did he want to take this opportunity to seduce Gu Yusheng? Qu Yisheng just had a scandal not long ago, would he do such a stupid thing?
As soon as he saw Xu Rui’er hanging up the phone, Gu Yusheng couldn’t wait to ask Xu Rui’er about the specific situation. He wanted to know what kind of attitude Qu Yisheng had. “What did Qu Yisheng say to you? Did he talk about politics? From your expression, it doesn’t seem to be a big deal. How about it? Is she still easy to talk to? If there is anything, just say it.”
“Yusheng, she asked me to take you to the hospital to find her, as if she had something to say. From her tone, it seems that she doesn’t blame me. Will she be so kind? There must be a conspiracy. Yusheng, come with me to see what conspiracy she has.” Xu Rui’er also answered obediently, but she still had a puzzled look on her face, unable to understand what Qu Yisheng was thinking.
“Except for asking me to go to the hospital with you, didn’t she say anything else? Did she only say these things? Qu Yisheng, she may be so easy-going. I guess there may be something wrong.” Qu Yisheng was definitely not going to ask her to go with him for no reason. He must have other thoughts, but at the moment, he could not figure it out.
It must be that Zong Zhengyu told Qu Yisheng about what he had participated in, so Qu Yisheng asked him and Xu Rui’er to go with him. It must be so. Sure enough, in the future, he had to be wary of some entertainment. Zong Zhengyu was really unfathomable. If there was a chance in the future, he must destroy Stars Entertainment! He would never allow himself to trample on his self-esteem again and again.
Xu Rui’er suddenly showed a very scared look. Qu Yisheng was really not a good person. How could he plot against her like this!
“Then why don’t we go? If that’s the case, won’t Zong Zhengyu come to us? I’m afraid, Yu Sheng, let’s go together. Anyway, she can’t do anything to us. Unless she can’t survive in the entertainment industry, she will never offend us.” Xu Rui’er looked at Gu Yusheng with some fear. Now Gu Yusheng was her backbone. If Gu Yusheng didn’t tell her what to do, she didn’t know what to do.
Gu Yusheng glanced at Xu Rui’er and suddenly showed a gentle smile. He touched Xu Rui’er’s head and said, “I will definitely go, and I will do my best. Otherwise, you may be assassinated. We will go to see Qu Yisheng tomorrow. I will empty all the schedule tomorrow and go with you. Don’t worry too much.”
Xu Rui’er’s face burst into a very happy smile. She quickly took Gu Yusheng’s arm and said coquettishly, “Yusheng, I know you still care about me. You won’t let me go to see her alone. If I really go to see her alone, I don’t think I will come back. That woman will definitely not let me go. I know very well!”
In the face of Xu Rui’er’s coquettish behavior, Gu Yusheng couldn’t push her away directly. But when he thought that he still needed Xu Rui’er to do something, he could only temporarily let Xu Rui’er trust him so that he could achieve his goal. Moreover, a woman like Xu Rui’er was stupid and easy to cheat, so he could eat so much that he schemed against her and made her a scapegoat!
Gu Yusheng touched Xu Rui’er’s face, and then looked at Xu Rui’er as if he were very doting. No woman would be able to accept such a deep gaze, and he was directly intoxicated. “Well, don’t worry about it anymore. You’ll know when you go there tomorrow. I’m here, and she won’t do anything to you. Just rest assured.”
Xu Rui’er nodded quickly and then leaned on Gu Yusheng’s shoulder very happily. It was really the first time that she had enjoyed Gu Yusheng’s gentle attitude. It must be a dream. But if it was a dream, it would never wake up again. She was really intoxicated in it.
After Qu Yanyan hung up the phone, Zong Jue, who was guarding the side, sent a very thoughtful expression, as if he was asking her what was going on. He was still worried about what kind of conspiracy Gu Yusheng had. This person was sinister and cunning. Those schemes were always unpredictable. He did not want Qu Yanyan to get hurt because of this!
Qu Yanyan placed her phone on the bedside table of the ward and shrugged her shoulders in confusion. Then, she looked at Zong Zhengyu and said, “Xu Rui’er actually called to apologize to me. This is definitely not her idea. It must be Gu Yusheng’s order. Did you threaten him? Otherwise, he would definitely not let Xu Rui’er come and apologize!”
Zong Zhengyu put down the news he had been reading and thought for a while. Then he nodded and showed a very contemptuous expression. “I just warned him a few words and told him not to do those little tricks behind his back. It looks disgraceful, but I didn’t expect that he would ask Xu Rui’er to take the blame. I guess he is afraid of confronting me face to face. He is really timid and sad!”
She knew that this matter must have something to do with Zong Zhengyu. Otherwise, Xu Rui’er would never take the initiative to come and apologize. However, Gu Yusheng’s behavior was really disgusting. He even let Xu Rui’er be the scapegoat!
Qu Yanyan smiled, then hugged Zong Zhengyu and told him what she had just decided. “I told him to come with Xu Rui’er and come to my ward to explain it to us. I can’t let him off lightly. Although I can’t do anything to him now, I can only disgust Xu Rui’er.”
Zong Zhengyu didn’t intend to stop Qu Yanyan from thinking about it. He thought it was a good idea. Then he nodded and told her, “You can do it boldly. If there is anything, I will take care of it for you. But I may have something to do tomorrow, so I can’t accompany you. Be careful. I will come to accompany you as soon as I finish my work. Don’t do so many things like before.”
Feeling that Zong Zhengyu was worried about her, Qu Yanyan suddenly felt warm in her heart. She rubbed against him slightly and said, “Of course I know that. Don’t worry. I’m not stupid enough. Even if they are brave enough, they won’t dare to hurt me now. What’s more, I have Su Zhe with me. He will protect me. You can rest assured. If something really happens, I will tell you.”
“Just tell me. I’m afraid that you won’t tell me.” Zong Zhengyu didn’t talk too much with Qu Yanyan. He believed that Qu Yanyan could solve these problems. Otherwise, she didn’t dare to stay with him.
“Of course not. Don’t worry.” Qu Yanyan nodded quickly and smiled sweetly, as if she had eaten honey. Suddenly, her heart was filled with thousands of peach blossoms.
Su Zhe, who was on the other side, naturally couldn’t stand the two people showing off their love in public. He directly refused them and then complained, “You two are showing off your love. Can you pay attention to the environment? I am still here, or you will poison me like this! I will sue you! The dog lover severely criticizes a couple like you who do not care about the occasion!”
“Then hurry up and find a girlfriend, or don’t talk.” Imperial Concubine Yu glanced at Su Zhe coldly, and then immediately changed her face. She looked at Qu Yanyan in her arms very dotingly, kissed her forehead gently, and then hugged her tightly, as if she was afraid that she would leave.
The next day, Qu Yanyan was still thinking about when Xu Rui’er and Gu Yusheng would come and had a discussion with Su Zhe. However, just as they were discussing, Xu Rui’er came in. She pushed the door open without any courtesy and went straight in without even knocking. It seemed that she was really used to being arrogant and no one dared to control her!
Seeing Xu Rui’er coming, Qu Yanyan quickly stopped talking with Su Zhe. She sat upright and watched Xu Rui’er walking toward her step by step. Behind her was Gu Yusheng, who was wearing a white suit. He looked extremely elegant. Standing with Xu Rui’er, an arrogant and domineering woman, there was no feeling of being a couple, which was very contrary to their wishes.
“Mrs. Gu, you’re really very efficient. You just agreed to come to my ward yesterday, but you’re here today. I thought you’d have to wait for at least a few days before you’re willing to come and apologize to me. It seems that I was wrong. I’m really sorry.” Qu Yanyan looked at Xu Rui’er and then smiled. She was really surprised that Xu Rui’er would come so quickly.
Xu Rui’er waved her hand. She was very imposing, as if she didn’t want to be weaker than Qu Yisheng. She seemed to be fighting with others. “Qu Yisheng, I came as promised. I didn’t break my promise and brought Yu Sheng with me. If you have anything to say, just say it now. I know I’m sorry for you. I shouldn’t do this. I’m just mad.”
Chapter 38 Crazy Devil
Xu Rui’er said a lot, as if it was just a task. Her tone was not sincere at all, and the expression on her face was as if someone owed her eight million yuan. Those who knew her thought she was here to apologize, and those who didn’t think about it thought she was here to collect debts. They had never seen anyone like Xu Rui’er who apologized so arrogantly.
But for Xu Rui’er’s attitude, Qu Yanyan was not angry at all. She knew that Xu Rui’er was such a person. It was impossible for her to really let Xu Rui’er come and apologize to her so sincerely. She had no such thoughts at all.
She smiled slightly and then treated Xu Rui’er very well. Her words were like Xu Rui’er’s excuse. She apologized directly. “I know that you can’t blame Mrs. Gu for these things. Mrs. Gu was just angry that I had a secret relationship with Mr. Gu. I know about this. I will change it in the future.”
“It’s nothing like that. Qu Yisheng, it’s my fault. I couldn’t bear to see others being together with Gu Yusheng. I was the one who couldn’t figure it out and vented my anger on you. It’s all my fault. No matter how much you want me to compensate you, I will be willing to do it.” However, it was impossible for her to make Xu Rui’er happy. She was not stupid enough to admit what she had said, so she could only apologize with her.
Qu Yanyan quickly shook her head and was still comforting Xu Rui’er, asking her not to blame herself too much. “It’s okay. Mrs. Gu, you don’t have to blame yourself too much. I don’t care about these things, but Mrs. Gu has already hurt me. I hope Mrs. Gu and Mr. Gu can solve your current losses to me. I won’t ask for anything else.”
It was very simple for her to do this, just to let Xu Rui’er put down her guard first. Besides, Xu Rui’er was not her main target for revenge. She just disgusted Xu Rui’er a little more in daily life, which made Xu Rui’er uncomfortable. Then, Gu Yusheng also felt uncomfortable. She was also very happy, and she could make use of Xu Rui’er’s character.
When Xu Rui’er heard that Qu Yanyan’s request was only so little, she was a little surprised. She looked at Qu Yanyan with disbelief in her eyes. How could Qu Yisheng let her go so easily? Did he have anything else to teach her? Was Qu Yisheng such a good person? Xu Rui’er couldn’t help but suspect that Qu Yisheng must have other plots.
After listening to Qu Yanyan’s words, Gu Yusheng, who had been watching the show quietly, also hurried out and then said to Qu Yanyan, “I will be responsible for the investment of your TV series. If there are any problems in the TV series, you can come to me at any time. Just treat it as my compensation for my fiancee. It is also a kind of lesson that I haven’t taught my fiancee well.”
Gu Yusheng’s words could be said to be a slap in Xu Rui’er’s face. What’s more, he was simply talking about Xu Rui’er’s fault. This made Xu Rui’er, who originally thought that Gu Yusheng was on her side, feel as if she had been struck by lightning. She looked at Gu Yusheng in disbelief and couldn’t help trembling.
“Mr. Gu, you should be glad that she has a fiancee who loves her so much. The reason why she can do such a thing is that she loves you. I am very envious of Mrs. Gu’s love for Mr. Gu. Mr. Gu must treat your fiancee well in the future.” Hearing Gu Yusheng’s words, Qu Yanyan immediately shook her head and continued to persuade Xu Rui’er, as if she really felt that Xu Rui’er was very kind.
Gu Yusheng couldn’t figure out what Xu Rui’er was going to do, so he could only play it by ear. Since Qu Yisheng had been defending Xu Rui’er, he had been saying that Xu Rui’er was not good. However, Gu Yusheng might have forgotten that a man whom he cherished very much would say that he was bad in front of another woman. How big a blow would it be for that woman?
“Miss Qu, you’re too serious. In the end, I didn’t discipline my fiancee well. Miss Qu, you’d better not say so much for her. This time, I taught her such a lesson. I believe that she won’t do such a thing in the future.” He didn’t notice Xu Rui’er’s gradually cold face, so he rebuked Xu Rui’er again.
Qu Yanyan quickly shook her head. She acted as if she didn’t think so at all. This acting made Su Zhe secretly give her a thumbs-up. If it was someone else who didn’t know the truth, he would really think that Qu Yanyan was such a person. “How can I say that for her? Mr. Gu, you don’t have to be too modest. I understand all of this. In the future, you can communicate well with Madam to avoid many things.”
“Miss Qu is right. If she could be a little more sensible, I wouldn’t be so difficult. I have to follow her all day long. It’s also very difficult for me to deal with the things after that…” Gu Yusheng could only belittle Xu Rui’er from a different perspective, and then flatter Qu Yanyan.
But Xu Rui’er, who had endured for such a long time, finally broke out. She really didn’t understand why Gu Yusheng treated her like this. She didn’t do anything wrong and listened to him to apologize. But why did he want to talk to her like this in front of Qu Yisheng? Which woman would be willing to do that?
Xu Rui’er was trembling with anger. She stared at Gu Yusheng and began to question him, “Gu Yusheng, what do you mean by saying that? Do you think I’m your burden? If I’m your burden, then don’t get engaged to me. Why are you talking nonsense with other women? Do you think I don’t exist as your fiancee?”
In the face of Xu Rui’er’s sudden outburst, Gu Yusheng couldn’t help frowning. He didn’t expect that Xu Rui’er would suddenly question him. This stupid woman, didn’t she know that she was here to apologize? If she wanted to make a scene, she would go back and make a scene. What was she doing now? She was indeed an idiot. Gu Yusheng thought to himself, “Xu Rui’er, this woman, I still can’t be too assured. Otherwise, it is very likely that her secret will be leaked by her.”
He suddenly fell silent and turned his eyes to Xu Rui’er fiercely. Looking at Xu Rui’er’s arrogant and domineering face, he paused for a moment and then warned Xu Rui’er, hoping that Xu Rui’er would understand what was going on. “Xu Rui’er, pay attention to your words and deeds. You are here to apologize. Miss Qu has made excuses for you, and you are talking nonsense!”
But how could Xu Rui’er think so much? At this moment, she only felt that she had lost face in front of Qu Yisheng. All of this was because Gu Yusheng wanted to show off in front of others and then use her as a stepping stone for him. Did he feel happy to humiliate him? Xu Rui’er’s body kept trembling and could not stop. She really felt wronged.
Xu Rui’er immediately looked at Qu Yanyan, who was still smiling. Pointing at Qu Yanyan, she questioned Gu Yusheng loudly, “Then why did you talk so happily with her? You totally think I don’t exist! If she really knew why I was angry, she wouldn’t have done such a thing! She just said it so nicely, but she is still a vixen!”
This curse could be said to directly make Xu Rui’er lose all the foundation that she had wanted to apologize.
Suddenly, the door behind her was also pushed open. A man in a black suit came in gracefully. When Qu Yanyan saw the appearance of the person, she immediately showed a very happy expression. She shouted, “Zong Zhengyu, you are here? Have you finished dealing with the company’s affairs? I thought you would take a long time to deal with it. I waited for you for a long time, and I thought you would not be able to wait for you!”
Qu Yanyan looked like a young girl who was in love. She was really charming. Seeing her like this, Zong Zhengyu suddenly smiled. He looked at her dotingly and then walked past Xu Rui’er and Gu Yusheng. He went straight to her and sat beside the bed. He replied, “I want to talk to you, so I have to deal with it quickly. How do you feel now?”
“I feel very good. There’s nothing wrong with it. If you hug me, maybe I’ll be better.” Qu Yanyan looked at the Imperial Clan’s governor and immediately acted like a spoiled child. Compared with Xu Rui’er, her coquettish look was really natural. It was completely different from Xu Rui’er’s pretentious look. This also made Gu Yusheng couldn’t help but look at Xu Rui’er with disgust.
Xu Rui’er was still immersed in her sadness and did not notice that Gu Yusheng was looking at her. If she found out that Gu Yusheng was looking at her like this, she would definitely make a scene in pain.
After whispering sweet nothings with Qu Yanyan, Su Zhe finally couldn’t stand it anymore. He couldn’t help reminding the Imperial Clan, “Hey, there are still people here. After dealing with this matter, can you please forgive me?”
The Imperial Clan official, who had been disturbed, looked very unhappy. He glanced at Su Zhe and then looked at Xu Rui’er. “It seems that Mrs. Gu doesn’t really want to come and apologize. Is this tone an apology? Yi Sheng doesn’t owe you anything. If you continue to talk nonsense, even if Gu Yusheng protects you, I will make you disappear from the entertainment circle. Do you understand?”
Maybe she was really too angry, so when faced with the Imperial Clan’s warning, Xu Rui’er was not afraid at all. She shouted directly, “She was the one who seduced my fiance. Why can’t I say it?”
“Since Mrs. Gu doesn’t want to apologize, please go out, Mr. Gu and Mrs. Gu. Our Yi Sheng can’t accept your apology! Just wait for Stars Entertainment to give you a heavy gift. I believe you will be happy!” Looking at Xu Rui’er, who was like a shrew, Zong Zhengyu didn’t want to have anything to do with Xu Rui’er, so he directly asked her to leave.
“I didn’t say anything wrong tomorrow, and I sincerely came to apologize. Why did you do this to me? What did I do wrong? You all have to do this to me!” Xu Rui’er was already in a state of madness. Facing the gaze of the Imperial Clan, she began to shout and shout, as ugly as a shrew in the street.
Zong Jue glanced at Xu Rui’er, who was acting like a demon, and chuckled, showing a very contemptuous expression, as if he didn’t take Xu Rui’er seriously at all. “Please leave quickly, and don’t see me off. Su Zhe, send the guests out. If these two people come again, just fight them out!”
His words showed no mercy at all, completely showing the contemptuous attitude of Zong Zhengyu.
Chapter 39 In a Difficult Situation
Su Zhe also stood in front of Xu Rui’er and Gu Yusheng at the right time. He said politely, “Okay, president, please! If you don’t leave now, I’ll start!”
“You don’t have to do that. We will leave ourselves!” Gu Yusheng didn’t expect that he would be invited out. He couldn’t help but glare at Xu Rui’er, then pushed Su Zhe away and said arrogantly.
Gu Yusheng dragged Xu Rui’er and left the ward. After leaving the hospital, Xu Rui’er’s nerves finally collapsed. She still didn’t understand what was wrong with her. She had fallen into a kind of magic barrier.
Looking at Gu Yusheng, she showed a very uncomfortable expression. Finally, she couldn’t help crying out loud. She still didn’t understand why she had to be humiliated like this. It was clearly her fault. “What’s so good about Qu Yisheng? It was she who seduced you. Why should I be inferior to her?”
In the face of Xu Rui’er’s sad crying, Gu Yusheng was not touched at all. On the contrary, he felt very annoyed. After showing an extremely impatient expression, he directly shook off Xu Rui’er’s hand and then said to Xu Rui’er, “I don’t care why you suffered such humiliation. Today, you obviously came to apologize. What did you do?”
“You asked me what I did? Then why didn’t you tell me what you did? It was you who hooked up with Qu Yisheng. Why should I bear the consequences? Did I do something wrong?” Seeing the expression on Gu Yusheng’s face, Xu Rui’er became angrier and angrier. She pulled Gu Yusheng and questioned him on the street.
“If it weren’t for you, do you think I would talk so much to Qu Yisheng? Do you really think Qu Yisheng will let you go? Just say that Qu Yisheng really let you go. Do you think Zong Zhengyu will let you go? Don’t be so naive!” Gu Yusheng said this to Xu Rui’er, but in fact, he said it for himself. He knew that Zong Zhengyu must have done something to him this time.
“But even if you say something to her, you shouldn’t have used me as your stepping stone. How dare you speak ill of me in front of someone else’s woman? I came here to apologize sincerely!” Xu Rui’er looked at Gu Yusheng immediately, showing a very aggrieved expression. She really listened to Gu Yusheng’s words, but why was she humiliated?
Gu Yusheng didn’t know how to answer Xu Rui’er’s question. After staring at her for a long time, he sighed and then said to Xu Rui’er, “Now the Imperial Clan’s governor has been irritated by you. I hope you can understand this. If you still want to stay in the entertainment circle, you should find a way to solve this problem as soon as possible!”
Xu Rui’er suddenly trembled. She suddenly remembered what she had said at that time. Thinking of the way the Imperial Clan looked at her, Xu Rui’er showed a frightened expression. She shook her head crazily and said, “I’m sorry, I really didn’t mean it. I was just mad. I didn’t really want to say those words. I didn’t expect to make him angry. Yusheng, help me!”
Gu Yusheng looked at Xu Rui’er coldly, as if he was amused by her words. He sneered and then said coldly, “How can I help you if you ask me to? It’s you who caused this trouble. How can I help you now? If you apologize to her today, there will be nothing now, but you don’t know that you have messed up everything!”
Xu Rui’er was stunned and couldn’t say a word. She really came to apologize sincerely. She really didn’t want to be like this. She quickly reached out to grab Gu Yusheng’s sleeve and begged, “You help me, you help me, is there any other way? As long as you mention it, I will do it immediately. I really don’t know why I suddenly became so angry!”
“It’s useless to say more now. Imperial Bloodline is already angry. If you can reverse time, maybe there will be a way. But can you? You can’t. There is no medicine for regret in the world. No matter how much you say now, it’s just empty talk!” Gu Yusheng directly pushed Xu Rui’er away. He looked at Xu Rui’er coldly, and he was trembling with anger.
He thought that he could rely on Xu Rui’er to calm down the anger of the Imperial Clan’s Yu and Qu Yisheng, but now he was ruined by Xu Rui’er, the stupid woman. Why did he have a relationship with such a stupid woman at the beginning? Fortunately, he had been pretending to coax her, but he failed to do anything!
Gu Yusheng felt that he might have done something evil in his last life, so he had to meet Xu Rui’er in this life. No, he couldn’t let Xu Rui’er ruin his plan. He must find a way to remedy it. He couldn’t just let it go!
“I’m sorry, I really don’t know. It must be that little b*tch who plotted against me. She must have schemed against me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be so angry. Believe me! Even if I’m irrational, I can’t be so easily irritated!” Xu Rui’er suddenly thought of Qu victory, and then hurriedly talked about this matter with Gu Yusheng.
Gu Yusheng glanced at Xu Rui’er. No matter what Xu Rui’er said, it was useless now. Even if Qu Yisheng really plotted against Xu Rui’er, things had already happened. The Imperial Clan’s governor already had a reason to scheme against him and Xu Rui’er. It was estimated that Qu Yisheng had such an idea, which made Xu Rui’er angry. Gu Yusheng was shocked. He didn’t expect that he would be schemed by Qu Yisheng.
Thinking of Gu Yusheng’s humiliation, he bit his lip hard and then said to Xu Rui’er coldly, “It’s useless for you to say more. You just stay on the street and think about what you should do! Don’t come to me again in the future. I will never help you again. Xu Rui’er, this time, I’m completely disappointed with you!”
After that, Gu Yusheng pushed Xu Rui’er and got into the car. Ignoring Xu Rui’er, he stepped on the accelerator and left the hospital, leaving Xu Rui’er alone in the cold wind, not knowing what she should do.
Gu Yusheng’s actions also stunned Xu Rui’er directly. She didn’t expect that Gu Yusheng would treat her like this. It took her a long time to realize that Gu Yusheng really abandoned her and left. Now standing on the street, she was like a lonely ghost and no one cared about her.
Xu Rui’er finally couldn’t hold on any longer. She squatted down and then began to cry regardless of the eyes of outsiders. She seemed to think that Gu Yusheng was just angry. Maybe soon, Gu Yusheng would come back. But Gu Yusheng didn’t. He really abandoned her on the street!
At this moment, Xu Rui’er’s heart was really cold.
When Gu Yusheng returned to the company, he was just about to take precautions to prevent Zong Zhengyu from attacking his own company. As soon as he entered the company, the secretary went straight to Gu Yusheng and said very anxiously, “President, bad news! Those project people who were originally cooperating with us, all went back on their word and didn’t want to cooperate with us! They were even willing to pay the penalty fee and didn’t want to cooperate with us!”
Upon hearing this, Gu Yusheng knew that Zong Zhengyu had attacked his own company. However, Gu Yusheng did not expect it to come so soon. He was stunned for a moment. It was not until the secretary nudged him and reminded him for a long time that he realized that the company had been attacked!
“As long as we pay the penalty, we won’t lose too much.” Gu Yusheng waved his hand and said with ease.
But what he never expected was that what his secretary said next would give him a bigger blow.
The secretary frowned and said to Gu Yusheng very urgently, “President, although these partners have all lost their damages, we have invested more money than these damages. Now our company has a serious loss! If we don’t find a way out, we may go bankrupt!”
Gu Yusheng was stunned for a moment. He didn’t expect it to be so serious, but people became calmer at the most critical moment. He hadn’t lost yet. Now he had taken more than half of the property of the Qu family. As long as the property of the Qu family was filled in, he could solve the crisis. But this was just to solve the urgent problem. If Zong Zhengyu continued to attack his company like this, he would definitely not be able to hold on.
“You go and sort it out first. How much did you lose? Then report the number to me. I’ll find a way to solve the rest. Don’t panic!” Gu Yusheng patted the secretary on the shoulder and then walked into the president’s office.
Gu Yusheng, who had entered the president’s office, revealed a completely dark side. He began to throw everything on the table to the ground wildly. However, this did not make him feel relieved, but made him even more uncomfortable. His whole person was almost in a state of explosion, and even his eyes became red.
He said with hatred, “Zong Zhengyu! I will never let you go! As long as I have a chance, I will destroy you!”
After saying those words of love, Gu Yusheng suddenly calmed down. He began to tidy up his appearance, trying to ensure that he was in a perfect state, and began to clean up the house. Gu Yusheng was such a horrible person. No matter what happened, he could always ensure that he would not be driven crazy.
He sat in his boss’ chair again. At this time, he suddenly picked up the phone beside him and dialed a number.
A slightly hoarse female voice came from the other end of the phone. “Mr. Gu, what’s the matter? Why did you suddenly call me? Did something happen? If it’s an investment, can we talk about it next time? I have something to do now.”
That’s right. Gu Yusheng called Qu Yanyan. He was very calm and knew that he could only rely on Qu Yanyan to turn his company into peace. So he gave up his dignity in an instant and began to ask for help from a woman.
“I apologize to Miss Qu for my ignorant fiancee. I know that Rui’er is a straightforward person. She never cares about what others think. I hope that Miss Qu doesn’t care too much about this matter.” Gu Yusheng didn’t immediately talk about his company, but talked about Xu Rui’er with Qu Yanyan.
Qu Yanyan, who was answering the phone, was silent for a long time. Gu Yusheng seemed to have heard a man sneering at him. He immediately tightened his grip on the phone in his hand. At this time, Qu Yanyan said, “I’m fine. Mr. Gu, don’t mind.”
Chapter 40 The Press Conference
“Miss Qu, can you help me tell Mr. Zong? I have no malice. I’m very sorry about my fiancee, but it doesn’t seem reasonable for Mr. Zong to directly deal with my company.” Gu Yusheng went straight to the point. His eyes were deep and his tone was a little cold.
Qu Yanyan’s hand, which was holding her phone, paused for a moment. She didn’t quite understand what Gu Yusheng meant. She covered her phone and put it away. Then she looked at Zong Zhengyu and asked in confusion, “Zong Zhengyu, what are you doing? Why did Gu Yusheng suddenly call you? Did you attack Gu Yusheng’s company?”
Zong Zhengyu nodded slightly with a sneer on his face. His eyes were cold, and he looked extremely indifferent. He said slowly, “He didn’t do anything else. He just taught him a lesson to let him know what he shouldn’t do and what he shouldn’t do. Otherwise, he will think that my woman is easy to bully.”
Qu Yanyan suddenly didn’t know what to say, and there seemed to be warmth in her heart. She even felt that her originally cold body gradually became warm. She was silent for a long time and smiled. Her eyes were like ripples in the water, revealing a deep gratitude. She nodded and replied, “Thank you, Zong Zhengyu. I know you have been helping me.”
Zong Zhengyu lowered his eyebrows and looked at Qu Yanyan. His heart was full of love for her. He reached out and touched her head. Then he signaled to Qu Yanyan that she was still on the phone with Gu Yusheng. He couldn’t stay silent for too long.
“Mr. Gu, I just asked him. I’m sorry, Mr. Gu. I didn’t expect that he would do such a thing. I will tell him to stop what he is doing now for you. If you cause any harm to Mr. Gu, take it as compensation for me.” Qu Yanyan thought for a moment and said to Gu Yusheng on the other side of the phone.
“Of course, this is the best ending. Miss Qu, I apologize for my fiancee’s recklessness again. The same thing will not happen again. Believe me, thank you for your help. If there is nothing else, I will hang up the phone directly. Goodbye.” It could be said that Gu Yusheng did not want to continue this conversation anymore because he felt that his dignity was completely crushed.
Qu Yanyan didn’t have any other thoughts. After a few words with Gu Yusheng, she hung up the phone in a hurry. Then she suddenly felt refreshed. She knew that Gu Yusheng must have been forced to beg her by Zong Zhengyu. Thinking that Gu Yusheng was so angry that he could only pretend to be elegant, she found it funny.
Zong Zhengyu looked over and saw Qu Yanyan so happy. He couldn’t help asking, “Why are you so happy all of a sudden? Can you tell me how you want to deal with the media?”
Qu Yanyan shrugged her shoulders and then wrapped her arms around his waist. She first rubbed his shoulder and slowly showed a very charming smile. “Well, of course I’m thinking about it. Since the media is spreading rumors like this, I might as well hold a press conference now. Then, I can clarify everything and advertise it as a criminal.”
After thinking for a while, Zong Zhengyu found that Qu Yanyan’s proposal was not a problem, so he nodded and said with a smile, “That’s a good idea. When you are cured, you can hold a press conference. I will help you with everything. If there is anything, you can come to me.”
Qu Yanyan nodded.
The two of them clung to each other for a long time. Su Zhe, who was next to them, directly refused. Then he left the ward and was unwilling to associate with the two of them.
Under the careful care of Zong Zhengyu and the good medical skills of the doctor, Qu Yanyan’s illness was finally cured. The first thing she did after she was discharged from the hospital was to issue a statement that she would hold a press conference, and it was directly released by Zong Zhengyu, which immediately attracted the attention of the major media. Maybe all the media were thinking about what else Qu Yisheng could do.
The matter of the press conference was also known by Xu Rui’er and Gu Yusheng, but Xu Rui’er pretended that she didn’t see it at all, as if she didn’t care at all. On the one hand, Gu Yusheng, who wanted to fan the flames, said something to provoke Xu Rui’er, but it seemed that it was useless, because Xu Rui’er didn’t seem to care at all.
Gu Yusheng originally wanted Xu Rui’er to make trouble again, but this idea did not succeed.
The press conference of Qu Yanyan was soon held. The location was specially chosen in a studio of Stars Entertainment. Almost all the famous media came, and Zong Zhengyu also specially arranged a lot of media that had a good relationship with Stars Entertainment, hoping that there would not be too difficult problems later.
On the other side, Su Lan had been cheering for Qu Yanyan, hoping that she would not be too nervous. “Sister Qu, don’t be too nervous. There is no big problem in this press conference. The president specially found reporters who have a good relationship with us. Later, some problems won’t be too difficult.”
Qu Yanyan did not feel nervous. She felt a faint excitement. She knew that this was actually an opportunity. If she succeeded, she would be able to get rid of the reputation of the criminal psychology. Although the process might be a little unworthy, the result would be good.
She shook her head and gave Su Lan a very relieved expression. Then she stepped onto the stage directly. Su Lan followed Qu Yanyan, as if he was supporting her. If there was really a sudden situation, he could adapt to it randomly and help a group of Qu Yanyan. He couldn’t let the media bully Sister Qu.
The press conference officially began. All the reporters sent by the major media were sitting on the ground. Except for a few people who had a good relationship with Stars Entertainment, almost everyone was looking at Qu Yanyan covetously. It seemed that she could live forever after taking a bite of the meat of a monk. All of them regarded her as their prey and tried their best to dig out some fierce information from her.
“I am very happy. All the reporters are willing to come to my press conference. I thought that I was not so famous that no one would be willing to come.” Qu Yanyan looked at everyone and then showed a very generous smile, even though she knew that these people were just coming for Zong Zhengyu.
One of the reporters, who was also familiar with the media of Stars Entertainment, stood up at the beginning and asked Qu Yanyan, “Miss Qu, I don’t know if your relationship with Mr. Zong is true. Are you two really dating? I heard that Mr. Zong is ordinary and does not get close to women. If the relationship between you and Mr. Zong is real, then Miss Qu is Mr. Zong’s first public girlfriend.”
This was a good question. She didn’t make things difficult for him. She just asked about her relationship with Zong Zhengyu. She nodded and replied, “I do have a relationship with him as a boyfriend, but we haven’t known each other for a long time. I wanted to keep it a secret, but I didn’t expect someone to reveal it.”
“Miss Qu, since you are Mr. Zong’s girlfriend, may I ask what’s the matter with that photo? Miss Qu, is it true that you have betrayed Mr. Zong?” The next person was obviously the one who was eyeing Qu Yanyan covetously. Moreover, his eyes were full of malicious intentions, as if he was very disdainful of Qu Yanyan, and his expression was full of complacency.
Looking at the man’s malicious expression, Qu Yanyan paused for a moment and then looked at the man coldly. She sneered and asked, “Mr. reporter, please pay attention to your words. If you continue to use such words to describe me, I will directly sue you for rumors. You just took a photo. Why do you think I have done such immoral things?”
The man was speechless by Qu Yanyan’s question. Maybe he didn’t expect her to be so sharp-tongued and aggressive. He didn’t know how to answer for a moment. He calmed down and said, “Miss Qu, since you didn’t do this, what’s wrong with that photo?”
“Yes, yes, Miss Qu, why are you avoiding the heavy? Why don’t you explain the problem of the picture! What kind of explanation is this! It’s obviously a problem! Or is Miss Qu stepping on two ships behind Mr. Zong’s back?” Another hostile person said, and his words were full of disdain for Qu Yanyan.
His words were very excessive. Zong Zhengyu, who had been watching, really couldn’t stand it. He didn’t expect that these media reporters were really vicious. He was very worried that Qu Yanyan could solve it perfectly. He tightened his fingers and was ready to go on stage to stop those bad media.
However, Imperial Concubine Yu’s action was discovered by Qu Yanyan. She glanced at him, obviously asking him not to come over and she could solve it by herself. Imperial Concubine Yu looked at Qu Yanyan for a long time and found that there was no fear in her eyes, only firmness. He was relieved and stopped his action, trying to trust her.
Since Qu Yanyan asked him not to go, he believed that Qu Yanyan could solve these problems. He believed that his judgment would not be wrong!
Qu Yanyan took back her eyes and smiled gently. Then she looked at the bad eyes of the crowd. She narrowed her eyes slightly, and then her tone suddenly became gentle. “That’s just a hug between me and a good friend I haven’t seen for many years. I don’t know why someone took it down and sent it to you media, but your malicious speculation about me has already affected my life.”
“I can tell you very clearly that I have never done anything to hurt him. You are the speculation of the media. If you hurt me, I will find ways to find out whether you can escape or not!” Qu Yanyan’s eyes suddenly became sharp and swept over everyone’s eyes. Suddenly, people felt a sense of majesty.
The group of reporters below were so depressed that they didn’t even dare to breathe. They could only stare blankly at Qu Yanyan. However, Qu Yanyan’s expression changed again and suddenly softened. She smiled and said, “But you also let me understand that there are some things that I can do and some things that I can’t do. In the future, I will pay attention to my own words and deeds and not embarrass him. Thank you for pointing out my mistakes and letting me understand this.”
