Due to the fact that Gu Chengya29Gu ChengyaAlso written as Cheng Ya or Miss Gu. The mistress of the Gu family; Grandpa Gu's favourite granddaughter. could die any time as a result of her illness, she had become her grandfather’s most precious person.
Grandpa Gu had once told everyone.
As long as my granddaughter likes it, even if it’s a star, I’ll pick it for her!
After the rumors of what he said got out, anyone who heard it didn’t think it was an exaggeration, because with the Gu family’s capability… they really could do it!
That was why, even though Gu Chengya was an ordinary person, there were always professional bodyguards like Gu Zhanchuan27Gu ZhanchuanGu Chengya's bodyguard. by her side. Everything she did had only one purpose… her happiness!
For her to be brought up in such an environment, one would obviously expect her to be arrogant, or be influenced by bad habits. But it was just the opposite. She was far more sensible than all other children in her family; she was well behaved and smart!
She had read a lot of books, from astronomy to geography, ancient to modern times of China and foreign countries; she played piano, chess and did calligraphy. It didn’t matter whether it was local or foreign, she excelled in all of them! She liked swimming, workout, and racing…
Gu Chengya paid more attention to her surroundings as compared to other people; she was also devout, because she knew… her time was only so much! Perhaps after the sun sets today, she would never see it rise again the next day…
She had always been able to conquer everyone and everything she liked!
That is, till the day she met Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel.. His shadow lingered in her mind since that incident at 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.. For the first time, she felt curious of how a person could be so mysterious. Yet, when the man’s calm eyes bore into hers, she felt even more unreconciled to it.
That was why she sneaked out and followed Su Qiubai to the Xia Group. She didn’t tell Gu Zhanchuan because she knew that he wouldn’t allow her, after all he had listed Su Qiubai as an absolutely dangerous person.
But who knew that her illness would coincidentally reappear. Quietly waiting for it to pass, Gu Chengya felt a lot better after a few minutes; by now she was used to it.
However, she felt odd when she noticed Su Qiubai frowning next to her. Is he still planning on getting revenge for that day?
With that thought in mind, Gu Chengya regretted her actions a little. I really shouldn’t have simply run off from home. If anything goes wrong, Grandpa would be heartbroken.
Su Qiubai definitely didn’t know that his appearance had caused Gu Chengya to assume that he was a bad person.
At that moment, he clearly understood the reason as to why he could understand Gu Chengya’s health condition. It was definitely because of the reward he received from completing the previous task.
Hua Tuo25Hua TuoAlso known as Hua Yuanhua or Yuan Hua. An ancient Chinese godly doctor/acupuncturist’s Qi observation skill!
Previously, he had wondered what the skill’s usage was, but now he understood.
“Can we leave this place first? Is the ambulance coming?”
Gu Chengya really didn’t want to endure the crowd’s stares, so she interrupted Su Qiubai, who was obviously still in deep thoughts. The old driver responded by quickly helping her up from the ground. The onlookers slowly dispersed after seeing that Gu Chengya was alright.
“If there’s nothing else, I’ll go home first.”
Taking a glance at Su Qiubai, Gu Chengya spoke softly. She regretted her actions even more after seeing him stare at her chest.
The old driver blushed. He too felt like he was behaving like an old pervert. But when he heard that she was leaving, he immediately shouted, “No, you can’t go!”
Hearing his words, Gu Chengya stopped dead in her tracks. She felt that something was wrong, but still remained where she was.
After realizing that it came out wrong, Su Qiubai quickly explained, “Erm… I want to take you somewhere. Trust me, I won’t hurt you!”
Gu Chengya was surprised by his words. Her mind told her to say no. But looking at Su Qiubai’s pure eyes and sincere expression, she unconsciously followed. In the end, the two of them got into the taxi. Su Qiubai silently drove straight to his home and parked his car downstairs.
Gu Chengya thought she was going crazy. She had always been a very calm person. But in a moment’s hesitation, she had unconditionally believed in a man whom she had only met twice before.
Su Qiubai led Gu Chengya out of the taxi, he remained quiet as they went upstairs.
Honestly, he wasn’t really thinking of anything. It was his first time experiencing the Qi observation skill, so he felt weird, especially after seeing the condition of Gu Chengya’s internal body. To him, it looked like a whole new world, making him curious.
Therefore… his plan was to take her to his house and examine her…
Seeing Su Qiubai taking out his key, Gu Chengya only then realized that she should ask where she was. As she was opening her mouth, that question was answered.
“This is my house, please come in…”
She seriously stared at Su Qiubai. His eyes were still so sincere, but there was a hint of eagerness in them. It was the first time a man had ever invited her to his house, and he even succeeded!
Smiling, Gu Chengya went in. Her strong confidence led to her to continue believing in Su Qiubai!
After they entered the house, the little white dog was still playing with Wang Cai. When it noticed Su Qiubai leading the beautiful Gu Chengya inside, it angrily barked, “What are you trying to do? This is already the second girl you brought back with you!”
Gu Chengya might not know what the little white dog was saying, but Su Qiubai definitely understood it. He immediately blushed, but ignored the puppy, and guided Gu Chengya to sit down.
Darn it, I’m trying to save someone this time!
“Erm, do you faint often?” Su Qiubai contemplated before asking.
She didn’t understand why he asked this, but she nodded anyway. Many people knew about her sickness, so there was no need to hide it.
So it’s true!
He was far more sure about the information he got from the Qi observation skill, but he still didn’t know how to cure her illness.
After pondering for a while, Su Qiubai patted himself on the head, how could I forget about the navigation system!
Without a moment’s hesitation, he immediately turned on the skill-adding interface. He had enough growth points24growth pointsProtagonist earns this when he completes tasks given by the navigation system now. If he could find a solution…
The silent Su Qiubai made Gu Chengya even more curious.
Without a single explanation, he brought me to his house, and now he’s not saying anything… what exactly does this person want?
“Erm, does your family know you’re sick? Have you ever got it checked?”
Su Qiubai asked again after some time; he couldn’t find a solution from the skill-adding interface.
The reason was frustrating… he didn’t know which skill he needed in order to save her!
It was only then that Gu Chengya realized that Su Qiubai was asking about her illness. She shook her head and smiled, “It’s useless, no one can cure my illness.”
Only she knew the bitterness behind that sentence. It was indeed true. Grandpa Gu had invited several doctors to try and treat the illness, be it from the Chinese to Western, local and abroad!
No one could cure it. At the very least, there were some old doctors who knew where the problem was, others didn’t even know that.
Su Qiubai was anxious after hearing that.
What kind of family is this! How can they not look for a way to cure her illness and instead let her run around on the streets! And they even crushed her hope, telling her that no one could cure her…
Although he had never met her family before, he was already mad at them. He suddenly had an idea and jumped off the sofa.
Darn it, how could I forget Hua Tuo! This Qi observation skill came from him after all. Who else in this world could be better in its use than him!
“You just stay here for a while, I’ll get a doctor for you. I’ll be back soon. He’s quite a professional.”
Grinning, Su Qiubai grabbed the keys and rushed out of the house, not bothering to wait for her reply.
It was a bit strange that he left Gu Chengya in his house… this man’s really odd!
Despite that, she still stayed even though she didn’t have any hope in the doctor he mentioned.
She hadn’t forgotten the old master’s words. He said that according to the legend, only Hua Tuo had a Qi observation skill that could allow him to examine a person’s innate deficiencies, and that only he could find a way to make up for it.
That was her current situation, but no one had that ability!
No one knew what the Qi observation skill was, and as for Hua Tuo… it was impossible to bring him back to life!
At that time, Su Qiubai had already gotten into his taxi and sped through the space-time channel.
“Located Hua Tuo. Starting navigation…”
In a flash, he swiftly arrived at the front of a small hut situated near a mountain. The place was surrounded by lush forests, and there was a small winding river in the distance.
He recalled Hua Tuo saying that he was going to visit an old friend; this should be the place.
Su Qiubai stopped the car. From its window, he spotted two people sitting by a stone table not far away: one was Hua Tuo, the other was unknown so he assumed that it was Hua Tuo’s friend.
He didn’t hesitate, after all Gu Chengya was still waiting for him. He had used his Qi observation skill and found out that the girl was close to dying, he couldn’t afford any delay.
After hopping out of the car, Su Qiubai ran towards the stone table.
“Haha, I finally found you, quickly follow me to save someone!”
Having that said, he dragged Hua Tuo towards his car without any further explanation. Hua Tuo was stunned.
“Erm… Where are we going?”
Hua Tuo had a good impression about Su Qiubai after the last incident. So, he wasn’t mad at Su Qiubai’s rude actions.
“There’s a seriously-ill patient who’s dying soon. I have to take you to her.”
Su Qiubai anxiously explained as he pulled on Hua Tuo’s sleeves again.
“What’s her sickness?” Hua Tuo’s friend suddenly asked.
Heck, I’m looking for Hua Tuo. What are you doing here?
Halfway through Su Qiubai’s thought, Hua Tuo smiled and introduced him, “This is my close friend. Surnamed Zhang, named Zhongjing. He has superb medical skills…”
Crap… Zhang Zhongjing!
Su Qiubai knew that his face had turned red, but it didn’t matter… I’ll just bring you too!
