Chapter 757: Beat the dog before the lion (Part One)
Shen Yao looked at Lin Chuxue anxiously once they were in the apartment.
“Little Xue, he wasn’t well. His whole body was bandaged, and when I went to see him, he hadn’t woken up yet. The doctor told me to be mentally prepared that there’s a possibility he may never wake up again.”
Lin Chuxue fell onto the sofa, losing all color from her pale face.
Ran Jing asked in surprise, “How come? What happened?”
“It’s hard to say in a nutshell.” Lin Chuxue said quietly, “At first, I was kidnapped to be used as a tool to threaten Xu Cheng, and I chose to commit suicide in order not to become a burden to him. But I woke up and I was alive and well. I didn’t see Xu Cheng beside me, and many people didn’t allow me to leave the country, because once I go out, I would become a target again. I have been very worried about Xu Cheng’s safety, so that’s why I asked Yaoyao to help me see him. It seems like he’s been hurt really badly, I don’t know what happened and I want to know why.”
When Shen Yao heard that Lin Chuxue was willing to commit suicide for Xu Cheng, she froze for a moment and looked at Lin Chuxue dumbfoundedly as she said, “Then you should go see him.”
Perhaps this was why Xu Cheng chose Lin Chuxue instead of her?
If it was Shen Yao, she didn’t know if she would have the courage to do the same.
Lin Chuxue shook her head, frustrated. “I can’t get out. You don’t know how strong his enemies are this time. I don’t even know who they are, but I know they are very powerful. So powerful that they were able to kidnap someone in broad daylight with guns in their hand. If I leave the country, my information will be tracked down and I will soon become their target again. Right now, Xu Cheng is still alive, which means that they will not give up, and if I am caught again, then Xu Cheng’s injury would not mean anything. Also, my passport has been flagged to be denied from leaving the country.”
“How did you guys get into such a mess with this group of people?” Ran Jing asked curiously, “I haven’t seen you for the past three years; how have you and Xu Cheng been doing?”
“With great power comes great responsibility. His business expanded too much so other people started eyeing his success. These three years, he went abroad and earned nearly thirty billion dollars in assets. I didn’t expect that they could be desperate enough to do something like this.” Lin Chuxue sighed.
“Thirty billion? Dollars?!” Even Shen Yao was stunned. Her father only had more than two billion dollars of assets, and Xu Cheng had earned this much within merely three years?
Ran Jing was also shocked. “Did he go rob someone’s money to be targeted like this?”
“I’m just kidding,” said Ran Jing immediately after.
The other two weren’t angry either.
Lin Chuxue looked distracted as she covered her eyes with her hands and said in a low voice, “I hope he can wake up safely. I don’t know what to do now; I wanted to divert my attention from thinking about him with the charity stuff I’m doing these days, but I can’t help it. I worry about him all the time because I don’t know how he’s been, nor his condition. I can’t sleep thinking that there’s no one around him to take care of him. My heart aches and I just want to fly over to see him and stay by his side.”
When Lin Chuxue took her hands away, tears rolled down her face.
Ran Jing patted her shoulder. “It will be fine. With him in that condition, even if you were around, he probably can’t hear anything. He has to rely on his own willpower to wake up, and what you have to do is to not let his enemies find you and make trouble for Xu Cheng. You should cherish what he had done for you and live well, then wait for his return.”
Lin Chuxue nodded and wiped the tears away from the corners of her eyes. She stroked the huge diamond ring on her finger and a rare happy smile appeared on her face.
“This is the wedding ring he put on for me when I was in a coma, I will wait for him to come back and have a wedding with him. He will be here, right?”
Shen Yao looked at the ring and had some mixed feelings in her heart.
But she still smiled and nodded. “He will, and you two will be together eventually. I believe that he will wake up.”
Ran Jing: “Then during this period of time, how about Little Xue, you stay in this apartment? You can’t be exposed to the media. Otherwise, once you appear in the news, those people will easily find you.”
Shen Yao also nodded, mainly because the two of them were worried about Lin Chuxue’s mental state. If they didn’t take care of her, they were afraid that she would become depressed or something like that.
Lin Chuxue nodded silently as all of her focus right now was on Xu Cheng’s condition and she couldn’t think about anything else.
