( If You’re Not An Old Fox, Who Else Could It Be?)

Lu Beichen.

Lu Beichen was suspended mid-air. His face was pale, and his body had become skinny.

Gu Jingyan panicked and wondered if he had already… left this world, for he was already motionless.

"Lu Beichen," she cried out in fear and rushed in.

As she saw him, tied up there, she reached out for a dagger from her shoe, and with that sharp dagger, she cut the rope that tied his hands.

Lu Beichen flopped into the water below.

Gu Jingyan quickly held onto Lu Beichen.

"Lu Beichen, wake up, wake up…" She used her strength to tap his cheeks.

Lu Beichen was semi-conscious and only felt like he was in a warm embrace.

Lately, he only felt coldness and moisture. He had not felt warmth for a long time and had forgotten how it felt.

He finally used his might to open his eyes a little and saw Gu Jingyan in front of him.

"Jing… Jingyan?"

He thought he was dreaming.

Wasn't she in the country? Why was she here?

Gu Jingyan touched his hand. "It's me. It's me. Are you okay?"

She held onto his icy hands, but it did not help.

She knew if she did not get him out, he would lose half his life and perhaps get sick in his current state even if he did not die.

She quickly got him up. "I'm here to save you. Let's get out. They've been distracted to the back, but they'll come here right away."

Lu Beichen mumbled and nodded his head. He used great strength to stand up.

Outside, at the same moment, some people from the Gu family had arrived quickly.

A group helped along and aided Lu Beichen on his way out.

Lu Beichen was unwilling to let go of Gu Jingyan's hand, so he held on tightly. He was mumbling, "Gu Jingyan, I remember when I saw you in school, I was amazed."

"Gu Jingyan, I wasn't used to seeing you being so capable."

"Gu Jingyan, I also didn't want you to be the school belle."

"My scores have always been better than yours. It's just that I couldn't bear to."

At a time like this, Gu Jingyan wanted to laugh.

What nonsense was he spouting?

She said, "Okay, stop talking. Save some energy to escape."

"If I die…"

"Idiot, you won't die!" How could she allow him to die?

He was Apple's father.

"If I die, everything under my name will be yours."


What was he saying again?

But for some reason, Gu Jingyan felt touched. Though money could not measure feelings, this trust that he gave her made her feel respected.

She paused and then continued to support him. She said, "Alright, I know. You don't have to say anything anymore. If not, I'd want to murder my own husband."

This sentence made Lu Beichen pause.

Murder her husband?

"Are you saying I'm your husband?"


Gu Jingyan quickly said, "I said it wrong. Alright. In any case, stop talking. You're not allowed to speak."

But in that instant, Lu Beichen really felt like he had come back to life again.

Just then, they came face to face.

Those Arabic men had come over.

"Gu Jingyan, go, quick."

Lu Beichen immediately used his strength and started to walk forward.

Though still weak, he was able to walk on his own.

Gu Jingyan saw the person who came and stopped.

They did not think that a woman would locate this place and fill it with bombs. She had immediately dealt with so many of their brothers, which brought the tiger out of its den.

"Haha, I've long heard that the people from C Nation are very cunning. Indeed…"

Gu Jingyan looked at them. "There's no feud between anyone in the first place. Let me go and we'll immediately take it as this thing didn't happen. Anyway, it's just a small misunderstanding, right?"

They pointed to the pile of bodies behind. "Look carefully. Those bodies are our brothers. They're dead because of you."

Gu Jingyan smiled. "If your own kin were kidnapped in this state, you too would be so mad that you'd want to murder someone. This is your fault in the first place."

"We don't care who's right or wrong now. Anyway, don't think about leaving. Don't think…"

As the Arabic man spoke, he brought his gun up and pointed it at them, ready to fire.

Lu Beichen immediately went in front of Gu Jingyan.

It was tragic looking at the people in front.

However, just then…

A gunshot was heard.

But the thing is, the shot was not from the gun in front of them but… from behind.

The Arabic man holding the gun immediately fell to the ground. The stream of blood in between his brows already made it clear.

He was dead.

He had been shot in the head by someone behind.

Gu Jingyan looked up and discovered that behind them was an army of Gu family's guards.

She froze and then reacted after a short moment.

Especially when it was Gu Jingze.

Didn't Second Brother say he wasn't coming?

Lu Beichen heaved a sigh of relief. He looked outside and said, "No wonder you came in alone. So it's because there's help outside. Was this Gu Jingze's plan?"

He knew that Gu Jingze had always been a sly one.

Gu Jingyan's expression darkened.

"What plans? I don't know anything, and you call this a plan?"


Gu Jingyan said, "I mean, I didn't even know he would come."


Lu Beichen understood in a moment.

Gu Jingyan mumbled, "Oh, he let me lure them out and after almost being done with them, his people decide to come and pick up the pieces. Seriously…"

Lu Beichen also understood this.


What an old fox.

Sure enough, the people inside were dealt with very quickly.

As for Gu Jingze, he came walking in spotlessly clean from outside.

Seeing how his suit did not even have a crease, Gu Jingyan cursed in her heart before saying, "You came in the end."

"These people are considered unbearable." Gu Jingze smiled and complimented Gu Jingyan, "Luring the tiger out of its den just now was quite a good play."


Gu Jingyan had wanted to speak, but Lu Beichen's body could not take it any longer.

Seeing how Lu Beichen was on the verge of collapsing, Gu Jingyan quickly supported him.

Gu Jingze gave a slight glance at the back. The subordinates helped Lu Beichen up.

The group helped to support Lu Beichen together and left this cold and wet place.

At the hospital.

Gu Jingze told Lin Che, "He's fine. You didn't have to rush down."

Lin Che did hurry over. Seeing Gu Jingyan inside, she decided it was better not to go in and interrupt.

"Those Arabic men…"

"There are no Arabic men left."


All gone?

Alright then.

Lin Che said, "The William family sent an invite. Take a look."

Gu Jingze took the invitation that had gold sidelines. He nodded his head, "Alright, let's go and take part."
