All that Shao Tianze wanted to do now at this critical moment was to accompany Gu Changle who was seriously ill.
Shao Tianze wouldn’t leave the People’s Hospital unless Gu Changle came around.
Though the shareholders were demented, they could do nothing with Shao Tianze as he cared nothing about the Shao enterprise now.
After meeting Shao Xue, Song Yunxuan understood the situation.
It was just that she didn’t stay in the hospital for too long because of her identity.
After the nurse changed Shao Xue’s dressing, Song Yunxuan said goodbye to Shao Xue, “I can’t stay here for too long. Take good care of yourself. I’ll be leaving.”
Hearing that, Shao Xue didn’t feel surprised. She just reminded her, “Be careful on the way.”
Song Yunxuan nodded, preparing to leave.
Seeing that Song Yunxuan was leaving, Shao Xue seemed to think of something. She suddenly asked Song Yunxuan, “How… how is Ding Ali?”
Hearing that Shao Xue wanted to know how Ding Ali was doing, Song Yunxuan was slightly stupefied. Then she replied to her, “Gu Changle managed to let Ding Ali take the blame for her, so Shao Tianze could not tolerate Ding Ali anymore. He sent her away, but he let her survive.”
Hearing Song Yunxuan’s reply, Shao Xue nodded.
She knew that Ding Ali could not stay too long in the Shao Family.
After all, Gu Changle was not so tolerant that she could let another woman share her beloved man with her.
Gu Changle would get rid of Ding Ali sooner or later.
It was just that she didn’t expect Gu Changle would turn against her this quickly. She let Ding Ali take the blame for harming Gu Yi and Miaomiao without any difficulty and drove her out of the Shao Family.
After finishing her words, Song Yunxuan left the pharmacy.
Shao Xue had mixed feelings. After the nurse finished changing her dressing, Shao Xue went back to the ward with her accompany.
Shortly after she returned to her ward, she heard a knock at the door.
She felt curious, not knowing who was coming at the moment.
She pondered for a moment and then let the nurse’s aide open the door.
No sooner had the nurse opened the door than she saw Mr. Zhu who asked her to persuade Shao Tianze outside Gu Changle’s ward a while ago.
After entering the ward, he greeted Shao Xue.
Shao Xue felt strange. She nodded and replied, “Mr. Zhu, why are you here?”
Mr. Zhu frowned, but he still braced himself to ask after entering the ward, “Miss Shao, you are Chairman Shao’s only younger sister. No matter what, you have to persuade him to meet us. Otherwise, we will get flustered.”
Hearing that, Shao Xue knew that he still wanted Shao Tianze to show up and explain everything.
She also felt helpless, replying to Mr. Zhu, “Mr. Zhu, listen to me. It’s not that I don’t want to make him come out. The truth is he won’t listen to me. Now my brother cares nothing but Changle’s illness.”
“But Gu’s is the most important property left by Miss Changge. Can we just let someone else purchase it?”
Hearing Mr. Zhu’s words, Shao Xue reminded him, “Now it’s not Gu’s. It’s Shao’s.”
“But it’s still Gu Changge’s property. If Miss Changge were alive, now…”
Mr. Zhu suddenly realized that he said something wrong, so he stopped speaking.
Even though Mr. Zhu stopped speaking, Shao Xue could understand what he was going to say next.
He just wanted to say that the Shao enterprise would not have existed without Gu’s huge family estate and Gu Changge’s painstaking effort.
Shao Tianze was no more than a person that enjoyed the fruits of others’ labor.
Seeing that Mr. Zhu shut up, Shao Xue smiled, saying, “Mr. Zhu, I know you do this for the sake of the Shao enterprise. But there is nothing we can do as my elder brother is the decision-maker. As for what to do, we can only wait for him to call the shots. No matter how hard we try, he will not listen to us.”
Hearing that, Mr. Zhu understood Shao Xue could not persuade Shao Tianze either.
Therefore, he sighed and said, “I see. Sorry to disturb you, Miss Shao.”
Shao Xue shook her head, replying politely, “Don’t mention it. I know you came for the sake of my brother. But I really can’t help you.”
Mr. Zhu gradually got less worried when hearing Shao Xue’s words.
Shao Xue was right. No matter how urgent it was, the shareholders did not have the right to decide anything.
Shao Tianze was the one to call the shots.
If Shao Tianze didn’t want to show up to console those shareholders, there was nothing the shareholders could do.
They were really like the back-seat drivers.
After finishing talking with Shao Xue, Mr. Zhu left the ward.
Seeing Mr. Zhu leave the ward, Shao Xue lowered her eyes and lay back on the bed.
How much longer could Shao Tianze keep on like this?
And how much longer could Gu Changle be with Shao Tianze?
Song Yunxuan wanted to get someone to give Tan Yi some money.
However, Tan Yi refused to take it.
For some unaccountable reason, Zang Linger knew about it.
After living in the Song Family, Zang Linger knew a lot about her.
She even knew something about Lu Xia.
As soon as Song Yunxuan returned from the hospital, Zang Linger asked her, “Gu Changle is dying?”
“No. She won’t.”
How could Song Yunxuan let her die before torturing her?
Seeing that Zang Linger was drinking flower tea on the sofa, Song Yunxuan walked over and sat beside her, rubbing her brows.
Seeing that, Zang Linger subconsciously took a look at the amulet around her neck. Then she asked Song Yunxuan, “Doesn’t the amulet work? You still suffer from headaches?”
Hearing Zang Linger’s words, Song Yunxuan got a bit surprised. Then she looked up at Zang Linger calmly.
Zang Linger shrugged her shoulders, saying, “Don’t ask me what I know.”
Song Yunxuan just pressed her lips and looked at her. Sure enough, she didn’t ask her what she knew.
Being looked at by Song Yunxuan like this, Zang Linger was a bit uncomfortable. Then she said honestly, “Truth be told. I know the use of the amulet around your neck.”
Song Yunxuan’s heart skipped a beat.
Then she heard Zang Linger telling her, “You know well about our Zang Family. Since we can get a lot of valuable things, we are well-informed. Maybe the details of an antique, or a man’s secrets. Even some strange stories that no one believes but me.”
Song Yunxuan pressed her lips and looked at Zang Linger, asking, “So… What is your guess?”
Zang Linger replied, “Not important. I won’t interfere with it. Don’t worry. I only care about our Zang Family’s interests. None of the other things matters to me.”
Song Yunxuan nodded, replying, “Good. You let me feel relieved.”
Zang Linger pursed her lips and asked her, “Since Gu Changle won’t die, when can she come around?”
The dose Tan Yi gave Gu Changle would not make her die. It would only make her sleep for a while.
It would not be long, so Gu Changle should come around in a couple of hours.
Seeing that Song Yunxuan replied so calmly, Zang Linger said, “Since Tan Yi listens to Lu Xia, should you thank Lu Xia as she is about to give birth?”
Hearing Zang Linger’s words, Song Yunxuan looked at her with pleasure, asking, “Are you saying you have something to recommend to me?”
Since Zang Linger took the initiative to talk about the gifts for Lu Xia’s newly-born baby, she must have something quite valuable that needed a buyer.
Sure enough, Zang Linger chuckled on hearing Song Yunxuan’s question, replying, “I’ve got a nice gold lock.”
Song Yunxuan remained silent.
Zang Linger continued, “It’s a magical lock, and it has a legend.”
Song Yunxuan could almost guess what the legend was.
“Legend has it that one can live a long life if wearing that, right?”
Zang Linger shook her head, replying, “No, no. It’s way more magical than that.”
Song Yunxuan chuckled, asking, “How magical can it be?”
The lock of longevity was just endowed with such good wishes and moral. Then it had been favored by people for thousands of years.
Hearing Song Yunxuan’s question, Zang Linger immediately appeared mysterious, replying, “The thing and the amulet around your neck have a curious coincidence.”
Song Yunxuan frowned.
Seeing that Song Yunxuan became serious, Zang Linger explained, “I’ve heard that anyone who wants to harm the one who wears the lock will eventually meet a violent end.”
Song Yunxuan sniffed, “Wow, scary.”
Sensing that Song Yunxuan didn’t take it seriously, Zang Linger felt a bit bored, “You seem to be incredulous.”
Song Yunxuan smiled, replying, “I’ve never believed that there is one thing that people can pin all their hope on.”
She had always believed in herself.
She would fight against anyone who wanted to hurt her by herself.
She never depended on an object to save her or eliminate those who wanted to kill her.
In this world, no one could follow and protect the other at all times.
Only if one was able to protect herself could she survive.
Besides, she would let those who wanted to hurt her pay the price.
Like Gu Changle.
Like Shao Tianze.
Seeing that Song Yunxuan lowered her eyes and seemed to be pondering, Zang Linger frowned and waved her hand in front of her eyes, saying, “Yunxuan?”
Noticing that, Song Yunxuan came to herself and looked at her, saying, “If you want to go out for fun, I’ll let Mei Qi give you a ride. Now I’m going to have a rest.”
Hearing Song Yunxuan’s words, Zang Linger sighed and felt more bored, saying, “I chose to stay in your house because I want you to accompany me for some days. But it turns out that you still have no time for me even though I’m already here.”
