1681 Didn’t Have Time To Say A Word Of Gratitude

Gu Zheng hugged Qiao Xi tightly, his expression cold. “Song Shijing, drive to the hospital!”

At this moment, he only had eyes for Qiao Xi in his arms. Ignoring the gunshot wound on his body, he carried her and quickly rushed into the car. Song Shijing quickly drove to the nearest hospital.

After seeing Qiao Xi leave safely, Huo Yuzhou put down his gun and muttered, “Once you leave the sea, you won’t be Gu Zheng’s match. He won’t give you a chance to hurt Xi Xi.”

The man knew that it was meaningless to continue chasing after her. He snorted. “Let’s go!”

Huo Yuzhou got off the ship and looked at Xue Liang. The two of them looked at each other but neither said a word.

The two of them became strangers long ago, but if it were not for Huo Yuzhou today, it would’ve been very difficult for them to leave alive. Xue Liang did not know what to say.

“Young Master Xue, let’s go!” Song Shiyu drove in front of him. Xue Liang immediately turned around and left. He did not even have the time to thank the man.

At this moment, in the hospital.

Gu Zheng was drenched, and his hair was still dripping. However, he did not look disheveled at all. Instead, he looked attractive.

Qin An had long called the hospital. The dean had also arranged for doctors to wait in the ward. Qiao Xi’s injuries were not serious, but those who were familiar with her knew that she was very afraid of water, which was why she fainted.

After the doctor diagnosed Qiao Xi and confirmed that she was fine, he saw the blood dripping on the floor and instantly exclaimed, “Mr. Gu, your wound needs to be bandaged quickly!”

Gu Zheng was wearing a black windbreaker. His body was drenched, so the blood stains weren’t visible. However, at this moment, his blood and seawater mixed together and dripped onto the floor along the corner of his shirt. It was a shocking sight.

Gu Zheng had a calm expression as he continued to stare at Qiao Xi, who was lying on the hospital bed. His lips were pale and trembling slightly. His brows were tightly furrowed as if he was suppressing the pain.

Song Shijing said quickly, “President, the doctor said that Young Madam’s injury isn’t serious. You should treat your wound first. Otherwise, Young Madam will be sad to see you like this when she wakes up.”

“Alright.” Gu Zheng stood up and went to the ward next door. He sat down tiredly and took off his jacket, revealing the wound on his arm. The bullet had grazed his arm, leaving a deep wound. After being in seawater, the flesh around the wound began to turn white. This kind of pain was not something ordinary people could withstand, but he remained silent and expressionless.

The doctor hurriedly cleaned his wound. He sincerely admired this man.

While getting his wound treated, Gu Zheng closed his eyes and panted slightly. His face gradually turned pale, and cold sweat dripped down his forehead. The doctor’s hands trembled.

After applying the ointment, the doctor heaved a sigh of relief. “Mr. Gu, your wound is very deep. You need to apply the ointment every five hours. You can’t let it come in contact with water, lest your wound becomes inflamed.”

With that, Gu Zheng nodded, put on a clean jacket, and quickly walked toward the ward opposite. His anxious appearance made Song Shijing and Qin An sigh.

Previously, there were rumors online. Because of them, Qin An wanted to settle the score with Gu Zheng, but now that he saw him, he knew that he would absolutely not betray Qiao Xi.

Fortunately, he found her after going through a few hardships.

Gu Zheng could not imagine what would happen if he were to lose Qiao Xi. Just thinking about that scene made his heart ache like it was being pricked by needles.

Suddenly, the scene in front of him became blurry, and waves of sharp pain caused him to be unable to help but close his eyes. He lay exhaustedly beside Qiao Xi and gently pulled her into his arms before sleeping peacefully.

The next morning, Gu Zheng was woken up by a knock on the door. Song Shijing walked in and said in a low voice, “President, there’s news.”

Gu Zheng’s eyes suddenly turned cold. He quickly stood up and left the ward, closing the door gently. Song Shijing said, “When Huo Yuzhou took Young Madam away, the old patriarch of the Brook family abdicated. That young man became the new patriarch of the family, and the old patriarch is already under house arrest.”

“Who exactly is he?” Gu Zheng asked coldly.

He had been in contact with the old patriarch of the family for a period of time. Huo Yuzhou had also stayed with the Brook family for so many years, but they had never met such a person. This person had become the new patriarch of the family in just a few days. It was enough to show that he was resourceful.

Song Shijing also sensed that the man was dangerous and said in a low voice, “I haven’t found out his identity, but I can confirm that his surname is Meng.”
