Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Gu Yu made a call upon returning to the hospital and soon, a handsome young man dressed in a doctor’s robe dropped by to pick up the bird’s nest donkey-hide gelatin. “CEO Gu, it might take two days before we could share the test results with you,” he informed.
“Two days…” the words echoed in Xu Weilai’s mind and she subconsciously balled up her fists.
After Gu Yu took one glance at her with his jet black eyes, ordered, “I’ll only give you one day.”
The handsome young man couldn’t help but scratch his head and protest, “Mr. Gu, this might be a little…”
However, Gu Yu quickly threw him an icy stare before he could even finish his words. The man instantly fell silent and his words remained stuck in his throat as if someone was strangling him and preventing him from speaking.
“One day is enough. I’ll definitely work overtime to complete the test for you. Will deliver the results tomorrow,” the man vouched.
“Alright,” Gu Yu acknowledged.
He then raised his chin to gesture towards the exit and cue the man to take his leave.
Without a word more, the handsome young lad left immediately.
Amused by the young man’s swift retreat, Xu Weilai could not help but grin.
“Indeed, it’s hard not to cave in under Gu Yu’s cold stare,” she thought.
However, a sweet feeling grew in her heart when she was reminded of the fact that Gu Yu was doing this for her sake.
Time seemed to drag on whenever one was waiting for something. It was as if every minute and second was deliberately prolonged to make one feel restless.
Although Xu Weilai had tried her best to keep herself calm as she awaited the test results, it wasn’t easy to keep her emotions in check.
Thus, she suffered from insomnia again that very night.
The police called the next morning to inform her that they had taken Xiao Chun’s statement. Xiao Chun was able to detail the entire process of hurting Xu Weilai. Moreover, upon running a test on the knife, the police only managed to find traces of Xu Weilai’s blood and Xiao Chun’s fingerprints. Yun Rou’s fingerprints were nowhere to be found on the knife.
The police had already detained Xiao Chun now that they had conclusive evidence and were preparing to sue her.
At lunch, the report that Xu Weilai had been anxiously waiting for finally arrived. The handsome young man barged into her ward and panted as he handed her a brown paper bag. “The report just came out and I brought it here as soon as I could,” he reported.
“Thank you, I really appreciate it,” said Xu Weilai.
She then accepted the brown paper bag. While it wasn’t literally heavy, but it seemed to weigh down in her hands. She was clearly anxious to know the results but now that the report was in her hands, she does not seem to have the courage to read it.
She was afraid that the results would prove her wrong. She was afraid that it would show that their friendship was really just a farce.
Gu Yu waved his hand and signalled for the handsome young man to leave, after which he stepped forward and extended his hand towards Xu Weilai. “Do you need me to read it for you?” he offered.
Xu Weilai bit her lower lip and, after hesitating for some time, shook her head. A look of determination appeared in her eyes as she declined, “It’s alright, I need to face this.”
She then opened the brown paper bag quickly and took out the report so that she wouldn’t have time to have second thoughts.
When flipping through the document, as she couldn’t understand the jargon that was used at the beginning of the papers, she skipped right till the last page where the final result was written. She only began to read it after taking in a deep breath.
Gu Yu waited for her patiently and when he saw her staring at the result silently for close to half a minute without any reaction, raised his eyebrows and asked, “So what are the results?”
“Has it been poisoned?” he wondered.
Xu Weilai closed the report and gazed at Gu Yu with her clear eyes before she gulped. Just when she was about to reply, someone dashed into the ward and interrupted her.
