“Zhao Zhijing, I’m going to beat you up.”
After a short sluggish moment, Li Xia pounced on him.
Director Zhao’s mood had been worsening by each second it took him to the hospital. I wouldn’t be in such a state, if it weren’t for these two siblings.
It was due to this thought that caused him to lose his control, and kicked on the hospital bed when he entered the ward.
Noticing his wife with her bloodshot eyes ready to pounce on him, he felt a little scared.
His wife was really a witchy monster. That time when he was caught secretly meeting his first love, he almost got killed by his wife.
However, due to the crowd eyeing him, Zhao Zhijing didn’t show a lick of fear. In fact, he stood still and bear it.
Li Xia grabbed his hair and pulled on it forcefully. The pain caused tears to roll down his face.
“Stupid woman, let go of me!”
“In your dreams! My brother’s already in such miserable state! And yet, you still try to hurt him even more!”
Li Xia’s hands continued to clutch Zhao Zhijing’s hair like a pair of pliers.
“Stupid woman, let go of your hand.”
Poor Director Zhao’s body was originally weak so he felt as if his scalp was about to be pulled off by this prodigal woman.
More and more people wondered near the ward. They didn’t understand what the two of them were fighting about, and they didn’t know how to cool them down either.
Director Zhao and his wife were stuck in a stalemate for more than ten seconds, before he couldn’t stand it anymore, so he kicked hard on Li Xia’s stomach in order to get free.
Li Xia didn’t expect such an action: she instantly fell to the ground.
“Zhao Zhijing, you dare to kick me! Good… good! You’ll pay for this! Let me remind you, you did this to yourself!”
Li Xia was furious, she trembled in anger as she got up.
“In regards to your mother’s five-million-dollar bank card, where did the money come from? What about that Chief engineer? Why did he give you two million dollars last time? Also, the villa in the suburb…”
In the beginning, Zhao Zhijing had still been a little angry, but upon hearing Li Xia’s words, and noticing that someone in the silent crowd had started recording, he knew… that he was finished!
In another ward, Xia Rongrong30Xia RongrongPresident/CEO of the Xia Group, one of the few wealthy and powerful company/family at Qinghe City was sitting on her bed, feeling a little lost.
She would be discharged from the hospital in just a few days’ time. Then, she would once again have to carry the burden of the Xia Group.
From an outsider perspective, the Xia Group had a brilliant future. However, only a few people actually knew that the huge company was already faltering.
Everything started from a single mistake. The Xia Group’s funds had a serious deficit. Then, the Li Group took the chance to join forces with other major companies and go against them, thus causing the Xia Group’s state to worsen every year.
After Xia Rongrong took over the business, she did a lot of adjustments and deployments, unfortunately the loophole in the investment funds were too big. She desperately put her every effort in solving the issue, but nothing could be changed.
Before, she nearly fell into despair, but the three wild ginseng from Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel. had given her some hope.
She planned to use the three wild ginseng as a medicinal investment, but she was reluctant to do so since the ginseng were too precious.
If… If only there were five more wild ginseng, she was confident that the Xia Group would rise to the top once again!
But… does anymore of this ginseng still exist?
Su Qiubai obviously didn’t know what Xia Rongrong was thinking. When he showed up at the door with the little white dog, she immediately beamed.
She was still as beautiful as always. In fact, she looked much better than before too.
Both of them chatted for a while. Xia Rongrong, felt very relaxed and comfortable. She didn’t know why, but this person, who was obviously just an ordinary taxi driver, had a fascinating temperament.
“Thank you for your help. If it wasn’t for you, I would still be at the police station.”
Su Qiubai scratched his head, grinning.
He had already thought it over in his mind. Amongst all his friends, only Xia Rongrong had the capability to set him free from prison so quickly.
With the little white dog in her arms, Xia Rongrong replied with a smile, “You don’t have to thank me. I didn’t do much. I only gave Director Zhao a call but he didn’t pay me any attention… It was someone else who helped you.”
Her words stunned Su Qiubai. Who would it be if it wasn’t Xia Rongrong?
“Don’t worry, you’ll find out in due time… I guess I’d be discharged in two or three more days.”
It might be that Xia Rongrong didn’t want to talk about this matter anymore, so she changed the topic.
Su Qiubai was quite happy to hear the news of her discharge, but then he immediately got worried.
“After being discharged you mustn’t work every day and night anymore. The doctor said, your illness was caused by fatigue, so you need rest… How about this, I’ll take you on a vacation once you get better! We’d go anywhere you like!”
Su Qiubai beamed and patted his chest while saying this.
His appearance amused Xia Rongrong. She realised that only with Su Qiubai was she able to smile and forget about her burden.
“Are you worried?” Su Qiubai noticed that Xia Rongrong didn’t look alright, so he couldn’t help but asked.
“No, I’m good…”
She smiled as she kept her worries to herself. Su Qiubai had helped me so much. Besides, he wouldn’t have any solutions.
“Well then, let me know if there’s anything I can help. We could even watch the crosstalk, ‘Guan Gong fought Qin Qiong’!”
Su Qiubai assured Xia Rongrong. He enjoyed seeing Xia Rongrong smile.
The two of them chatted for almost over half an hour. Most of it was just Su Qiubai babbling about the incredible things he had done while Xia Rongrong sat and listened, with her mouth agape…
As he rattled on, Xia Rongrong’s cell phone suddenly rang.
With a glance at the number, Xia Rongrong frowned. It was from her brother.
Upon accepting the call, she noticed that it was very noisy on the other end. In fact, the one who spoke wasn’t even her brother.
“Are you Xia Xiaomu’s sister? Your brother lost five million dollars to us. How are you going to deal with this?”
Upon hearing these words, Xia Rongrong immediately became worried. He was her only brother and the only person she had left ever since their parents went missing.
But this kid was always a troublemaker. He wouldn’t listen to anyone’s advice no matter what. It seemed that the trouble he caused this time was quite serious.
Although Xia Rongrong was worried, her tone remained calm. “Who are you? Where are you? I’ll bring the money. If anything happens to Xiao Mu, I won’t let you go.”[TLN: Xia Xiaomu and Xiao Mu are the same person.]
“Hey…… You sound as if you’re in a hurry. Alright then… Kangzhuang Avenue28Kangzhuang AvenueThe place where Su Qiubai first met the Street Racers Gang, Cheng Ya, Xiao Dao, Gu Zhanchuan and others. It was also where he first raced with Cao Toufei and Xiao Dao.. I’m Cao Toufei. I’m sure you know who I am, right?”
That proud voice made Xia Rongrong’s heart sink deeper.
She had already guessed that the issue might be related to the Street Racers Gang, and sure enough… it was Cao Toufei!
The racers in that gang, led by Cao Toufei, were wealthy people from local and international.
Those youngsters were around 20 years old and usually had nothing to do, so they raced and fought every day. They liked to cause trouble all the time, they were a headache to whoever was unfortunate enough to encounter them.
If I had only watched Xiao Mu carefully, things like this wouldn’t have happened.
“Okay, I’m on my way.”
Taking a deep breath, Xia Rongrong hung up.
There isn’t enough time for me to contact Grandpa Xia. Besides, I’m the one who cares about my younger brother the most. I’ll handle this myself instead of making others worry. Xia Rongrong started her preparations to leave the hospital right after putting the phone down.
“What are you doing? Do you really plan to leave just like that?”
Noticing that she was about to get up, Su Qiubai quickly stopped her.
Xia Rongrong was really stressed out. Although her eyes were still calm, she was much paler than before.
“No, Xiao Mu is in danger. I have to save him.”
Xia Rongrong stared at Su Qiubai and explained.
“Street Racers Gang? Cao Toufei? You really plan to hand over five million dollars to them?
Su Qiubai asked, his eyes fixed on Xia Rongrong.
Xia Rongrong remained still, helplessly silent for a few seconds before replying, “I’ll see what I can do when I get there. Those kids are a troublesome bunch. I’m worried that they’ll hurt Xiao Mu.”
After that, she once again tried to get off the bed.
Su Qiubai immediately grabbed ahold of her arm.
Xia Rongrong stunned, as she looked up at him after a moment’s pause.
The old driver smiled. “They’re just kids! Let me handle it. I promise that I’ll bring your brother back safely!”
His words startled Xia Rongrong as she felt something changed in her heart. I don’t even remember the last time I had someone to rely on.
“You… can do it?”
She initially had wanted to refuse, but she didn’t know why she said that in the end.
“It’s not a big deal. Don’t worry.” Su Qiubai nodded seriously.
“Alright then. Remember, don’t confront them, and just bring Xiao Mu back.” Xia Rongrong hesitated for a while before reminding him once more.
“No problem, I’ve always been cool when it comes to handling these things. Well then, I’ll be going now!”
Su Qiubai left the room right after saying that, leaving Xia Rongrong alone in the ward.
Before the anxiety left her, a nurse came in.
“Miss Xia, was that your boyfriend?”
She grinned as she arranged the bed whilst asking Xia Rongrong.
Xia Rongrong was taken aback. She was about to explain but remained silent in the end.
“He’s a really good man. He almost fainted when he brought you to the hospital last time. Before your family arrived, he was the one who helped settle all your medical procedures…”
The nurse continued to babble on, not noticing the change in Xia Rongrong’s expression.
He was the one who brought me to the hospital? But… didn’t Aunty say that it was the security guard?
As Xia Rongrong was still overwhelmed by the realization, the nurse continued, “He’s the man in the two videos on the internet, right? The one who gets himself involved in fights ?It’s rare to find a person daring enough to stand up against bullies, but… he’s a bit hot-tempered. You’ll have to advise him.”
Having said that, the nurse took a glance at Xia Rongrong, smiling.
Xia Rongrong was still reminiscing her aunt’s word from last time so she merely acknowledged the nurse’s words.
After that, her heart suddenly skipped a beat!
How can I forget!
Su Qiubai’s character! The fight at the crossroads where he kicked and punched the Li Group’s young master!
While that investigation was still going on, he got into another fight with a school’s director after a foreign exchange conference!
And yet, I actually set him on against the Street Racers Gang to save my brother!
Realizing that something bad was about to happen, she attempted to call Su Qiubai, but she realized that she didn’t have his phone number!
On the other hand, Su Qiubai had already reached Yanggu County.
This is no joking matter. How could I not bring any bodyguards with me for this kind of situation!
Let me pick up Brother Wu Song first. Then, we’ll beat up those little rascals, even heaven can’t save them.
