Chapter 248: I’d Like to Go Home With You (2)
Her lips parted leisurely as she replied offhandedly, “Don’t worry. I was faking it.”
She’d been faking it?
Gu Xue was stunned for a full minute before realizing the impact of her words. Widening her eyes in disbelief, she stuttered, “You… You…”
Xu Weilai nodded her head immediately. “That’s right. I was lying to Rong Wang. I wasn’t broadcasting anything live.”
Gu Xue was silent for a long while before remarking in a low voice, “Xu Weilai, weren’t you afraid that… if he saw through your lie back there… you would suffer at his hands too?”
“Of course I was afraid! How could I not be?” Xu Weilai answered honestly with a nod of her head. “I’m not Superman! It’s not as if I can beat up ten guys on my own! Even so, I still couldn’t sit back and do nothing while you were getting attacked. I had to take the gamble.”
Knowing one’s enemy was crucial for the battle’s victory. Xu Weilai knew Gu Xue’s personality well. Therefore, she had known that even if she hadn’t managed to convince Gu Xue in the afternoon, there was still no way that Gu Xue would continue to fully trust Rong Wang any longer.
She had predicted that Gu Xue would search out Rong Wang to confront him, but she hadn’t expected her to be so reckless. Because of everything had happened so suddenly, there was not much Xu Weilai could do except to call Qiao Chu over for backup before rushing into the private room on her own.
Under the pretext of filming a live broadcast, she had caused Rong Wang to panic. Because she had been trained in Judo before, she knew where to hit him to render him unconscious. Once she had dealt with Rong Wang, she was free to take Gu Xue and the other fan out. There was no doubt that it was a risky plan!
Despite the potential danger, she had been confident that Rong Wang would fall for her trick.
As the saying went, the wicked flee when no one pursues. Rong Wang had committed so many evil deeds that the slightest rustle was enough to scare the daylights out of him!
Hence, he got what he deserved!
“I still couldn’t sit back and do nothing while you were getting attacked…” The words replayed in Gu Xue’s ears as she stared at Xu Weilai, and myriad of emotions surging in her heart. Despite how horribly she treated Xu Weilai, the latter had saved her without any regard for her own safety!
Gu Xue didn’t dare to imagine what she would have suffered under Rong Wang’s hands if Xu Weilai hadn’t come to the rescue…
Just what sort of a person was she? Why did Xu Weilai suddenly feel like a stranger to her at that very moment? This wasn’t like the Xu Weilai she had known.
When they arrived at the hospital, the doctor jabbed the other fan to rid her body of the drug’s effects. As she slowly awakened, Gu Xue gave the girl’s boyfriend a call, asking him to pick her up.
Gu Xue herself had suffered several external injuries. Rong Wang had slapped her beautiful face a few times, causing it to swell up painfully. When the doctor applied the medication for her, she teared up from the pain and grabbed Xu Weilai’s sleeve subconsciously like a helpless child.
Given the state that Gu Xue was in, Xu Weilai didn’t stop her.
When they emerged from the hospital, Qiao Chu and Xu Weilai intended to send Gu Xue home first. However, when Gu Xue heard it, her face turned pale again after just beginning to regain its color. She shook her head desperately and protested, “I don’t want to go home. I don’t want to be alone.”
Alone? As far as Xu Weilai was concerned, Gu Xue lived with her parents and her family. Where were they?
Tears welled up in Gu Xue’s eyes as she looked at Xu Weilai and bit her lip. She looked so pitiful.
Xu Weilai had always been a softhearted person. When she saw Gu Xue’s demeanor, her heart went out to her. She asked, “If you don’t want to go home, where do you want to go?”
Gu Xue wrung her hands tightly together, and finally said weakly, “I… I would like to go home with you.”
