Ling Qingxuan and Gu Junling left the hospital after seeing her and then went to attend to their businesses. Xu Zhenyu took care of the procedures for her discharge while Zhou Tianyu packed her things, preparing for her trip back to the Mo Family.
As they passed by a VIP patient's room, the door flew open, and Wen Xinya came face to face with a man.
He was wearing a dark blue shirt and looked around 19 years old with short hair and a handsome face. Upon seeing her, a strange look flashed on his face—surprised yet inspecting.
Wen Xinya frowned. Although he looked somewhat familiar, she could not recall where she had seen him before.
Zhou Tianyu pulled her, snapping Wen Xinya back to reality.
When they were far away from the man, Zhou Tianyu asked softly, "That man gave me bad vibes, he's not one to mess with. How did you know him?"
Wen Xinya shook her head and replied, "I don't, but he looked a little familiar."
Zhou Tianyu continued, "It's better to avoid knowing people like him. It won't do you any good, so don't probe into it."
Wen Xinya nodded. "I know. Let's go!"
After she walked away into the distance, Gu Yuehan went back into the room.
In the patient's room, Si Yiyan was lying on the hospital bed. His face was drained of color as he remained unconscious.
Gu Yuehan could not help but recall the shock and anxiety he felt yesterday night when he received a call from his boss in Italy, telling him that enemies had infiltrated the hospital. He was ordered to stay by Ninth Young Master's side at all times.
The boss then mobilized everybody that was available in the Capital city to take control of the hospital.
That night, they encountered three waves of assassinations. The Ninth Young Master once again entered a life-threatening state as his wounds reopened.
The Ninth Young Master needed a large amount of blood for transfusion due to his blood loss. However, the hospital did not have sufficient blood for him as his HR-negative blood type was too rare. They only made it in time after the boss ordered all manpower available to get the blood from every prestigious hospital.
Even after the surgery, the Ninth Young Master remained in a critical state. Then, he was immediately sent to the intensive care unit after surgery for further observations. Only after the doctors confirmed that his life was no longer at risk was he sent to the patient's room.
It was just a night. Yet, it was more nerve-wracking than the power strife they went through in E country.
Gu Yuehan thought of the girl that pretty much put the Ninth Young Master's life at risk. Other than being a little pretty, there was nothing special about her.
He then remembered the old master. He died for his wife!
The men in the Si Family were all hopeless romantics!
While he was deep in thought, Si Yiyan stirred. Finally, he opened his eyes.
Gu Yuehan cried out, "Ninth Young Master, you're awake!"
"How is Wen Xinya doing?" Si Yiyan wheezed out breathlessly. He was weak and pale.
"She's fine. She was just discharged from the hospital!" Gu Yuehan was upset. The Ninth Young Master was at death's door just the night before, but all he could think of the moment he woke up was Wen Xinya. He went through life and death situations for Wen Xinya, but she was unaware of everything.
"Didn't the doctor say she has to stay for a checkup?" Si Yiyan furrowed his brows. His face was as white as a sheet due to the blood loss, and his veins could be seen. He was extremely weak and feeble.
Gu Yuehan woodenly said, "This, I'm not too sure of. However, I've asked the doctor. She did not suffer any big injury to her body, so there is no problem with her going home to rest."
Si Yiyan nodded and closed his eyes. In just two short sentences, he had exhausted all his energy.
After a moment, Si Yiyan said, "Inform our men in Capital city that Wen Xinya is under my care so that they will keep a better eye and look out for her."
Gu Yuehan could not hold back and said, "Young master, why don't you send two people to protect her by her side since you are so worried for the safety of the young mistress of the Wen Family. This way, you can guarantee her safety."
"No!" Si Yiyan heaved, and his face went a few shades lighter. Wen Xinya would not want him to interfere with her life.
Gu Yuehan went silent.
Si Yiyan continued, "How's the situation with Fu Tianyang?"
Si Yiyan shut his eyes. Although he looked like he fell asleep, Gu Yuehan knew better. He replied, "We managed to track down Fu Tianyang's wife in Harbour City. We discovered that he had cheated her of her assets and disappeared after bringing her there. To survive, she has been serving as a mistress in a hotel. The time when that man appeared beside her was right when Heavenbright Press Media closed down. The timing was indeed coincidental."
"Also, our men found an abandoned car at the South Mountain. Examinations confirmed that it was in a collision with Fu Tianyang's car, and the driver was nowhere to be found."
Si Yiyan's eyes flew open. "So you're saying the kidnapping of Wen Xinya by Fu Tianyang was a scheme planned beforehand?"
His voice might be weak, but it still sounded powerful, making Gu Yuehan hastily reply, "That's right, young master!" After a pause, he continued, "We have yet to find any other useful leads."
Si Yiyan covered his eyes. Such an outcome was within his expectations. Previously, he had investigated the death of Yang Chongguang for a long time and was unable to find out anything as well. Whoever was backing Ning Shuqian was powerful and could stay hidden.
After a brief silence, Si Yiyan said, "Prepare a nursing home for his son and send Fu Tianyang to a rehabilitation center. Let him go if he manages to quit drugs."
Gu Yuehan was astonished. The Ninth Young Master was actually willing to spare Fu Tianyang despite his vengeful nature.
Si Yiyan continued, "I'm a Buddhist, I believe there's karma in this world. Since she's innocent, there's no need to get my hands dirty and for her to suffer any consequence because of me."
Gu Yuehan's heart shrank, and he changed the topic hesitantly. "Young master, we have tried our best to keep your arrival in the country a secret. However, I don't think we can hide this any longer after last night's commotion. The boss asked me to bring you back to Italy as soon as possible. I'm afraid it will become more dangerous for you once people track you down."
Si Yiyan opened his eyes slowly. It was a simple action, yet it took all his effort. "Did the doctor say when I will be able to move and return to Italy?"
Gu Yuehan beamed with happiness and immediately replied, "You can move freely after three days. It's a 12 hours flight from Capital city to Italy. There should be no problem if we arrange for doctors and nurses to be by your side."
"Okay, I'll return to Italy in three days." Si Yiyan did not have any energy left even to utter another word. His eyelids felt heavy as exhaustion set on him.
