I ADORE HIM
(Accidental Pregnancy (14)
Gu Yusheng specifically told Xiaowang and Lu Bancheng not to let Old Master Gu know that he had been injured. Few people knew, and he wanted it that way to avoid having visitors.
Qin Zhi’ai had left the hospital after his infusion last night. When she returned in the morning, he was still asleep.
She tucked him in, sat quietly for a while, and then went to buy breakfast outside the hospital. After coming back, she continued watching over him. Gu Yusheng finally woke up at around 10:00 a.m.
The breakfast had already gotten cold but, fortunately, Xiaowang had brought some porridge for him.
Gu Yusheng’s appetite wasn’t good. After just a few bites, he leaned back, closed his eyes, and asked Xiaowang for a work status.
While Xiaowang was giving his report, a nurse came in to begin another intravenous drip.
Xiaowang’s report was mostly about the Gu Company. Qin Zhi’ai sat on the sofa quietly without disturbing them.
After the report, Xiaowang then turned to ask Qin Zhi’ai, “Secretary Qin, do you feel any better now?”
“I’m much better now.” Qin Zhi’ai put down her phone and smiled politely. “Thank you.”
“They’re bastards! What they did was abominable!” Xiaowang muttered angrily in a low voice. Then he asked Qin Zhi’ai curiously, “Secretary Qin, why would they kidnap you? Do you have a beef with anyone?”
Upon hearing Xiaowang’s question, Gu Yusheng opened his eyes and looked at Qin Zhi’ai.
Qin Zhi’ai shook her head. “No, I don’t.”
“Did they say anything when they kidnapped you?” Gu Yusheng suddenly asked. “Maybe they wanted money or something?”
Qin Zhi’ai gave it serious thought and then shook her head again. “No.”
“It’s so strange. They didn’t want money or ask you for anything else. What’s wrong with them?” Xiaowang was disgusted.
Hearing Xiaowang trying to figure it out, Gu Yusheng’s eyes quickly flickered and then he turned to look at Qin Zhi’ai. “Secretary Qin.”
“Yes?” Qin Zhi’ai also turned to look at Gu Yusheng.
“Across from the hospital, there’s a store selling sweet roasted chestnuts. Go buy some for me. Thank you.”
Before Gu Yusheng could finish, Xiaowang quickly stood up from the sofa. “Master Gu, let me do this for you. Secretary Qin needs to rest…”
Gu Yusheng winked at Xiaowang, who finished speaking for a moment, and then patted his head and turned to ask Qin Zhi’ai, “Secretary Qin, could you please go get those chestnuts for Master Gu? I just thought of one more piece of business to share with Master Gu.”
After Qin Zhi’ai had left the room, Xiaowang walked to the window to check on where she was and then turned around to face Gu Yusheng. “Master Gu.”
“Mm…” Gu Yusheng answered lightly before asking, “Have the police finished their investigation yet?”
“Yes. Several suspects admitted they had kidnapped Secretary Qin just because they thought she’s pretty.”
“Oh.” Gu Yusheng nodded slightly and then added, “Go investigate these men and find out exactly who they’re hooked up with.”
