Chapter 400: A Different Kind of Meeting (Part One)
The J of Diamonds knew Xu Cheng was just too angry, so he got up and patted Xu Cheng on the shoulder. “Right now the urgent thing is to check on your wife, I know you are very angry.”
Pulling his hair, Xu Cheng leaned against the wall and slowly slid down until he was on the floor. He said, “My biggest worry is that I’m not good enough to even protect my own woman. I just want to make myself stronger so that I deserve to be her protector and give her a sense of security. I just want to tell the whole world that I’m her man, and I can deal with whoever dares to take her away from me! So, I joined the army, and I joined the Dragon Division. Besides wanting to protect the country, I also want to protect my family! But I still ended up dragging her into this mess and got her injured.”
Bei Shan got back up, stood in front of him, and quietly said, “I’m really sorry.”
Xu Cheng shook his head. “Actually, I shouldn’t have blamed you. You guys didn’t know much about the old grudges between me and the underground money house, so you guys weren’t prepared for this. It was my own negligence, and I was also too nervous.”
“No, you were right, the Dragon Division indeed isn’t capable enough. I won’t make any excuses, my fault is my fault,” Bei Shan said sincerely.
Xu Cheng knew that so much happened to the Dragon Division recently that it was even barely able to take care of itself. He shouldn’t have blamed it on others. After all, needing someone to protect his own woman was also an act of pushing away responsibilities. Now, he could only hope that Lin Chuxue was fine.
The four of them waited for an hour outside the operating room door. The doctors came out of the operating room one after another. They took off their masks, revealing relieved faces, and said, “The bullets are all out now. Fortunately, they didn’t hit any critical areas, but the patient did lose a lot of blood. Right now, she’s very weak, family members can go in, but don’t stay too long.”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Thank you, Doctor.”
Then, he immediately went into the operating room and saw Lin Chuxue still lying there unconscious since she was still anesthetized. Xu Cheng’s heart ached for her very much, and he gently lifted her hand to her mouth and lightly kissed it.
“Honey, I’m sorry, I dragged you into this. I promised that I would protect you and give you the whole world, but you still ended up lying here.”
He gently caressed Lin Chuxue’s beautiful face, his heart felt torn from seeing her face so pale.
Lin Chuxue’s little hand suddenly moved and actually instinctively held onto Xu Cheng’s big hand in return.
It was a subconscious movement, and it made the tears drop silently from Xu Cheng’s originally-red eyes.
“Chuxue, same rule, whoever dares to hurt you, I will get them to pay back a thousand times, just like old times. Wait for me! I will show you how much I spoil you with my actions!” After Xu Cheng said that, he stood up and gently kissed down on Lin Chuxue on the forehead.
Then, he got up and left the room. At the door, he said to Auntie Lan, “Auntie, please take good care of Chuxue.”
Auntie Lan heavily nodded.
Xu Cheng then turned around and walked out of the hospital. Bei Shan immediately got nervous and went up and stopped him. “Where are you going?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“I hope you can protect her well for me this time.” Xu Cheng looked at Bei Shan with a serious look. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Don’t go! It’s a behemoth financial group at the national-level, are you going there to court death? Don’t forget your identity right now!”
Xu Cheng shouted with a deep voice, “So what? Even if I’m the chairman of this country, can’t you see that my woman is still lying there? If I endure this today, what would others think of me? This is the first time someone hurt my woman, so I will make them an example for everyone to see what the consequence is!” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
