Chapter 116: You Won’t Be Able to Walk out of Here (2)
Pang Hai had interacted with many different kinds of people before, but this was his first time dealing with someone as savage as Gu Yu. Shooting daggers out his eyes, his voice turned ominous as he asked, “Do you expect me to thank your wife for destroying my business?”
The man replied, “You may if you want to, but that’s not necessary!”
“Well done, Gu Yu. Today, I’ll make sure that you won’t be able to walk out of here alive!” He pulled out a pistol from under the couch and kicked the coffee table away. Standing in front of Gu Yu, he aimed the cold metal gun right between his eyes!
When Xu Weilai woke up, her mind was blank. Her head was hurting, her body was cold and aching, and she felt very uncomfortable everywhere. Her nose was blocked and her throat felt like it was on fire.
She stared at the white ceiling in a daze for a good minute or so before she regained consciousness.
Her eyes felt stiff when she first moved them, and she looked around. Confusion clouded her eyes. Had she lost her senses? That place didn’t look like the bedroom in the apartment!
When the nurse stepped out of the bathroom, she saw that Xu Weilai had opened her eyes. She took two steps towards her, and exclaimed excitedly, “Miss Xu, you’ve woken up!”
Xu Weilai took her time to look at her, and when she opened her mouth to speak, her voice was hoarse and sounded like the crunch of gravel. “You are…?”
She poured her a glass of water and replied, “Miss Xu, I’m the nurse that Mr. Gu hired. How do you feel now? Do you feel any better?”
As she spoke, she raised the incline of the hospital bed and lifted the cup of warm water to Xu Weilai’s lips. “Please have some water, Miss Xu.”
Xu Weilai was parched and didn’t bother with the formalities. She grabbed the glass of water from her and finished it all in one sitting. With moisture finally coating her throat, the burning sensation lessened, and the frown on her face dissipated.
After approximately half a minute, she spoke again. “I’m now in the hospital? Was… Gu Yu the one who sent me here?”
Only after voicing that question did Xu Weilai realize how inane it sounded. She had passed out in the apartment from her fever. Other than Gu Yu, who else would have discovered her there?
The only thing she found surprising was that Gu Yu had returned to the apartment in the first place. If he hadn’t returned, she could very well have died in the apartment without anyone realizing it! Xu Weilai lowered her eyes to hide the look of self-disdain that surfaced in them.
The nurse didn’t sense the change in her mood, and replied matter-of-factly, “You’re in the hospital. As for all the other details, I’m not too sure about them. When I came here, the only one I saw was Mr. Gu’s assistant.”
When Xu Weilai heard her reply, she didn’t have much of a reaction. Gu Yu’s action of sending her to the hospital had presumably been out of nothing more than civic duty on his part. Having already done more than what was required, how could he be expected to stay and keep her company?
Xu Weilai pursed her lips and nodded her head. “I see,” she replied.
Seeing that Xu Weilai wasn’t in the mood for conversation, the nurse was perceptive enough not to continue. Instead, she asked, “Would you like something to eat, Miss Xu? Or would you prefer to sleep for a little longer?”
Xu Weilai didn’t have much of an appetite, and her body was severely uncomfortable. She was about to reply that she wanted to sleep a little more when there was a sudden knock on the door.
The nurse glanced at Xu Weilai and broke out in a smile, “That might be Mr. Gu. I’ll open the door.”
She was in the service industry and had developed the ability to discern people’s moods through their expressions. When she noticed Xu Weilai’s troubled expression, she had surmised that it was due to disappointment that Gu Yu wasn’t there with her.
People were always a little more sensitive when they were ill.
Although she had no idea who Miss Xu was to Mr. Gu, based on the fact that Mr. Gu’s assistant was tending to her personally, the nurse was sure that Miss Xu had to be someone special! Hence, she had to do her best to ensure the patient remained in high spirits and recovered quickly.
She walked towards the entrance and opened the door.
