The atmosphere in the ward was a little weird. After sitting down, Xia Rongrong30Xia RongrongPresident/CEO of the Xia Group, one of the few wealthy and powerful company/family at Qinghe City noticed that Su Xiaoxiao31Su XiaoxiaoSu Qiubai's sister; also written as Xiao Xiao in this novel.’s attitude was different from before.
Well, that’s for sure! Previously, she had thought that Rong Rong was just her brother’s friend, but now there was a chance that Rong Rong could be her sister-in-law!
How could she act the same as before!
The girls chatted and Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel. was neglected at the side. He shook his head in helplessness. Just as he wondered what to do now, suddenly the sound of sports cars roared outside.
Obviously, it must be Cao Toufei and his gang.
Su Xiaoxiao had informed him earlier that Cao Toufei and his gang were all sent to a hotel by Xia Rongrong last night. The boys probably just woke up and rushed to the hospital.
Sure enough, not long after, the soft sound of footsteps echoed down the corridor.
Slowly pushing open the ward’s door, Cao Toufei restrained himself. When he spotted Su Qiubai sitting on the edge of the bed, he yelled out ‘boss’ in excitement, all of the younger brothers behind him were also full of joy.
The night before, Cao Toufei had held a meeting with his gang all night in the hotel!
The group of youngsters were told about the courageous men from Liang Mountain, who caused chaos in the Dragon’s Pool, Tiger’s Den, about Li Kui and his twin axes which had almost cut off Xiao Xiuwen’s head and about how Lu Zhishen had directly lifted Gu Qianshan above his head. Everyone in the hotel room had cheered!
It was so noisy that almost all of the other hotel guests had reported the gang.
However, the youngsters didn’t have much care about the report. It was such an exciting news. If they didn’t scream a few times, how could they be worthy of their boss!
Therefore, before the break of dawn, they had already started honking their way to the hospital.
Cao Toufei was still worried for Su Qiubai, seeing as he couldn’t reach him on his phone before arriving at the hospital. Seeing Su Qiubai now, Cao Toufei was relieved.
“Everyone talk softly. There are other patients here.”
Xia Rongrong nagged. Cao Toufei and the gang took a glance at her and immediately shut up.
They were familiar with Xia Rongrong. Although Cao Toufei lived his life unruly and wild, and had even kidnapped Xia Xiaomu, he couldn’t withstand Xia Rongrong’s pressure in person. He didn’t have that kind of courage.
In the whole of Qinghe City, all of the brothers had been warned by their families to never provoke Xia Rongrong!
That was why, when she had asked the brothers to return to the hotel, no one had dared to go against her order; they just drove away.
The room suddenly became silent, causing Su Xiaoxiao and Zhang Wen to feel strange. These youngsters didn’t only drive million-dollar luxury cars, they were also arrogant and unruly.
How did a mere sentence from Xia Rongrong quietened them all?
Su Qiubai didn’t find it strange. He knew about Xia Rongrong’s image in front of others besides himself.
He happily snickered.
Therefore, Su Qiubai took the brothers downstairs, leaving only the girls in the room.
At first, he thought of talking in the corridor, but the brothers were all in black suits, even some passersby sneakily took pictures of them.
Darn it… If the pictures were uploaded to the internet: A thug brother and his gang gathered in the hospital to make troubles. There would be even more unnecessary issues!
Down the stairs they went. The rain was still pouring outside. However, it was weaker than before and the sky was grayish.
“Big brother, do you want to compete at the Drivers’ League. Xia Rongrong can take care of Xiao Xiao here. There surely wouldn’t be any problem.”
Having said that, Cao Toufei fluttered, looking straight at Su Qiubai.
The old driver took a peek at them before noticing the boys’ eyes shining in excitement. They had been so anxious!
They hadn’t gone anywhere these few days because of Su Xiaoxiao. Since she was fine now, how could the group of youngsters withstand the temptation that was the Drivers’ League?
The headquarters of the Drivers’ League was located in Donghai City. They had perfect race tracks and world-class racing cars. Anyone who loved to race would surely go have a look.
Su Qiubai was no exception. It was obvious from the fact that he had chosen to be a taxi driver, despite several other occupations being available to him.
He was about to agree, after all, he had rarely ever came to Donghai City, but then he remembered that Xia Rongrong had driven all the way from Qinghe City and hadn’t even slept last night. If she continued to take care of Xiao Xiao today… Su Qiubai suddenly felt a little embarrassed and distressed.
Therefore, Su Qiubai stared back into Cao Toufei’s hopeful eyes and shook his head.
“You guys go play. I’m still quite worried. I’ll go with you guys next time.”
Su Qiubai felt a little guilty after seeing the disappointment in Cao Toufei’s eyes. After all, he had known these brothers for some time now, and he also loved spending time with them, but he should stay in the hospital.
“Okay then… We’ll be going now. Let’s go together next time.”
Helplessly nodding, the boys bid their goodbyes to Su Qiubai, before dashing away from the hospital in their cars.
After they left, Su Qiubai returned to the ward.
It turned out that only Xia Rongrong and Su Xiaoxiao were left in the room. Zhang Wen and Xiao Li had left as well.
Su Xiaoxiao explained that there were some things in school that they had to handle. Besides, they had helped to settle most of her procedures.
Su Qiubai was actually quite thankful for the two girls, he told Xiao Xiao that he would invite them over for dinner once she was discharged.
Su Xiaoxiao had no objection.
The ward returned to normal with Su Xiaoxiao and Xia Rongrong chatting with each other and Su Qiubai quietly sitting on the bed, listening to them.
After about ten minutes, Xia Rongrong’s phone rang out of the blue. She went out to pick it up but her expression didn’t look good when she returned.
“What’s wrong?” Su Qiubai noticed and immediately asked.
“Nothing, There are some problems at work…” Having that said, she looked at Xiao Xiao and smiled.
“Xiao Xiao, you have a good rest. Once I’ve settled the issue, I’ll come right back to take care of you. The nurses will remind your brother, in case he forgets anything…”
Truthfully, Su Qiubai had never seen Xia Rongrong speak so much in one breath. Her consideration touched the softest spot in his heart.
Su Xiaoxiao nodded, then quickly urged Su Qiubai to send Xia Rongrong off.
She was left alone in the ward as Su Qiubai and Xia Rongrong walked out together.
Both of them were silent all the way downstairs. Xia Rongrong was waiting for Su Qiubai to say something but he didn’t know what to say.
Finally, she became anxious as she got close to her car.
“What’s the matter? Do you need my help?”
He asked. Xia Rongrong stood still, then turned to him and smiled. “Nope. There’s some problems with a new investment company. I need to go back and check it. I’ll return once I’m done.”
Her calm look made Su Qiubai heartache. “You don’t have to come back here, I can take care of Xiao Xiao myself. She’s already much better…You just rest and take care of yourself.”
Xia Rongrong nodded and turned away. But she soon stopped and faced Su Qiubai once again.
“Next time… don’t turn off your phone.”
Having that said, she got into her car, leaving Su Qiubai in a daze.
Only when Xia Rongrong’s car left the hospital did Su Qiubai finally react.
He understood why she would say that and he felt somewhat guilty.
He had turned off his phone after borrowing some money from her and discovering the Xiao family’s whereabouts.
No doubt, Xia Rongrong must’ve been so worried that she drove all the way from Qinghe City. Then hearing that Xiao Xiao was hospitalized, she had come over just to look after her…
Su Qiubai used to treat Xia Rongrong as his friend in the past, but at that moment… His feelings for her changed.
He smoked a cigarette. As he prepared to go back upstairs, a car stopped not far away from him. Looking closer… It was actually Gu Qianshan!
After thinking it over for a bit, Su Qiubai figured out that he must have come for Gu Chengya29Gu ChengyaAlso written as Cheng Ya or Miss Gu. The mistress of the Gu family; Grandpa Gu's favourite granddaughter.’s illness.
Gu Qianshan was still thinking about what to say to Su Qiubai. Unexpectedly, he spotted Su Qiubai standing not far away from his position so he quickly ran over.
“Mr. Su, um… long time no see.”
Staring blankly at him, Su Qiubai was speechless.
The heck… We just saw each other last night!
Actually Gu Qianshan wasn’t trying to be funny. He was just too nervous. Gu Chengya’s condition had worsened last night. She was completely unconscious now.
Several doctors had been invited by Grandpa Gu to their home but all of them couldn’t figure out any way to help her, Su Qiubai was the Gu family’s last hope.
“I’ve said it before, it’s not that I don’t want to help you. I just couldn’t get the two old men to help!”
Su Qiubai helplessly shook his head and admitted the truth.
His words made Gu Qianshan’s smile stiffen. He secretly scolded Gu Zhanchuan27Gu ZhanchuanGu Chengya's bodyguard. for his stupidity. In fact, the Gu family had been pampered for many years, so almost everyone in the family was arrogant.
“Mr. Su, I beg of you to save my daughter. She spit out blood last night and hasn’t woken up til now. I beg you…”
Grabbing onto Su Qiubai’s arm, tears started rolling down Gu Qianshan’s cheeks as he spoke.
Su Qiubai didn’t know what to do, so he remained silent. Finally, he took a look at Gu Qianshan, “Forget it… I’ll try again.”
Having said that, he didn’t bother to wait for Gu Qianshan’s thankful reply; he walked over to his taxi. Fortunately, he had switched the truck with for his taxi from Niu Baiwan in the morning. Otherwise, he couldn’t possibly drive a truck there.
When he got into the car, he skillfully started it up and was about to open the navigation system.
However… the navigation system was broken!
Su Qiubai was stupefied. The navigation system was broken… Everything’s over.
