Chapter 118: This Is the Price to Pay for Hurting Her (2)
In all these years, Pang Hai had never come across a person who could maintain such a straight-face even with a gun pointed to his head before. In fact, the smirk on Gu Yu’s lips made it seem like he was mocking him.
“Ha! Gu Yu, do you think that I’m just scaring you and that I won’t dare to pull the trigger?”
Pang Hai was more than a decade older than Gu Yu, and to him, Gu Yu was nothing more than an arrogant and ignorant little bastard. “How dare you come at me? You were still playing in the sandpit when I was shooting guns! I’m going to kill you, and then I’m going to kill that damn bitch!”
Nothing he said appeared to be able to evoke a reaction out of Gu Yu, except for his last few words. The light in Gu Yu’s eyes dimmed, and the air around him seemed to freeze over.
The gun quivered in Pang Hai’s hand as his fury intensified. He cocked the gun with his finger, and the sound that echoed from it was like the bell of the Grim Reaper.
Still, Gu Yu did not move. He stood there leisurely, and the disdain in his eyes did not abate.
Finally, Pang Hai reached the end of his patience and thundered, “Fine, I’ll grant you your death wish!” Slowly, his finger applied pressure on the trigger.
All of a sudden, an underling barged into the office. His face was full of panic, and he exclaimed, “Bad news, Brother Hai! Bad news!”
The sudden shock caused Pang Hai’s hand to twitch, and he had almost dropped his gun. He turned to look at the interrupter, and spewed out a string of vulgarities in anger, “What f*cking bad news are you talking about? I just got out of the police station, and you’re saying that I’m bad news?”
“No, not at all, Brother Hai! Something grave has indeed happened!”
“Can’t you see that I’m busy?” Pang Hai hollered without a second thought. “No matter how grave it is, it can wait until after I’ve killed him! Scram!”
The underling panicked and threw caution to the wind. He leaned over in Pang Hai’s ear and whispered all that he needed to tell him, and Pang Hai’s expression visibly changed. His eyes widened, and the gun in his hand fell to the floor with a loud thud.
Gu Yu gazed leisurely at him with eyes that were ablaze with mockery and contempt.
Pang Hai’s body swayed a few times before he finally steadied himself and looked up. “Gu Yu, are you responsible for it?”
His underground businesses did not consist of the casino alone. There were many more that were even more concealed and valuable. Much to his horror, information pertaining to all of them had been retrieved by someone no more than five minutes ago.
Once this information was made public, he’d truly be done for. The rest of his life would have to be spent behind bars in prison!
Gu Yu suddenly spoke, “It’s nothing much, just a small gift from me.”
Pang Hai glared at him for a full minute before scoffing. Defeat was evident in his eyes when he replied, “Mr. Gu, you are indeed formidable. After all, you managed to become the king of the business world within a mere few years. Fine, you have my word that I won’t touch Xu Weilai again. Please let me off.”
Gu Yu smirked. With his slender fingers, he suddenly unbuttoned the cuffs of his sleeves. He rolled his sleeves upwards and threw a punch at Pang Hai’s face in the next instant.
Gu Yu’s physique was lanky, and he looked weak. But Pang Hai wasn’t able to withstand the blow of his punch and went fumbling on the ground immediately.
Gu Yu lifted his leg and stomped down hard on Pang Hai’s back. His eyes were filled with malice that was charming and scary at the same time. “This is the price you have to pay for hurting her that night!”
After Gu Yu left, Pang Hai threw up a mouthful of blood. His broken teeth fell out along with it. He wiped his mouth and laughed scornfully. “Xu Weilai is a vicious woman. I never expected Gu Yu to be even more ruthless. They’re indeed a match made in heaven!”
However, it was public knowledge that Gu Yu doted endlessly on Su Ziqian. Why did he get the feeling… that the woman Gu Yu truly loved was Xu Weilai?
By the time Gu Yu returned to the hospital, Xu Weilai had fallen back asleep. He gestured the nurse to take a break. He watched as the nurse tiptoed out, and locked the door behind her.
He walked over to the bedside, and his eyes fell on Xu Weilai’s pale face. Slowly, he reached his hand over.
Just as he was about to touch her face, her cell phone by the bed chimed. He turned his head instinctively, just in time to see the new message that came in.
As his eyes swept past the message, the barely perceptible warmth in his eyes was suddenly replaced by an intense chill.
