993 Leave America Right Now
Nalan Chunbo turned to Ye Yuwei in dismay. She realized what she had just suggested and quietly leaned back in her seat.
That man had ditched her. He had told her to get lost.
However, during crucial moments, the first person that flashed in her mind was always him.
Ye Yuwei looked down and picked at her fingernails absently.
"Mr. Gu is also looking for him but he hasn't found anything yet," Qiao Yi remarked. "If your father is not mistaken, Wen Chenghao will be leaving with Wen Lan."
Upon the mention of Ye Shu, both Ye Yuwei and Nalan Chunbo looked at Qiao Yi in surprise.
"Is he still not willing to show up, even at a crucial time like this?" Ye Yuwei asked, disappointment clear in her voice. She could not comprehend her father's intentions and motives.
Qiao Yi gripped the steering wheel tightly and finally said, "Perhaps it's not the right time yet."
Ye Yuwei leaned back in the seat with a mournful sigh stuck in her chest. If this was not the time, when was it?
Nalan Chunbo reached out to hold Ye Yuwei's hand, offering her silent comfort. He asked, "What else did my uncle say? What do we do next?"
"We're not going to do anything," Qiao Yi said as he stopped the car by the side of the road, "Gu Juexi will proceed with the next move."
They had done everything they were asked to do, such as enticing Gu Juexi to his current position where there was no way to retreat.
They would not do anything; they could only wait.
There was no other way than to wait.
"Uncle Qiao, go to the hospital that is the nearest to the Wen family house," Nalan Chunbo requested suddenly.
Ye Yuwei was baffled.
Qiao Yi started the engine, turning the steering wheel and changing their course.
"Wen Lan is sick. If she is still alive, she has to see a doctor. However, she must not be seen in broad daylight so she must be going to the hospital nearest to her house when she needs it," Nalan Chunbo explained upon seeing Ye Yuwei's confused look. Wen Lan was one of the main characters in this story, and he would definitely not let her escape from his grasp.
When they arrived at the hospital, Nalan Chunbo and Ye Yuwei immediately rushed to the Hepatology Department. The hospital was not crowded at this hour, but it was not an easy task to get the reports from the department.
Before they reached the department, Ye Yuwei saw Gu Juexi striding towards them. Obviously, he was here for Wen Lan too.
Nalan Chunbo and Gu Juexi had the same theory—great minds really did think alike.
Gu Juexi moved his furious gaze away from the sight of their hands clasped together. He glared at Nalan Chunbo after looking at Ye Yuwei with an unreadable gaze.
When the brothers came face-to-face, their eyes blazed with hatred.
Ye Yuwei supposed it explained a situation like this perfectly.
Ye Yuwei wanted to say something, but the words were stuck in her throat.
Gu Juexi walked past Nalan Chunbo swiftly. As he passed him, he murmured quietly, "Before I solve this matter, take her away from Gu Tianmu's sphere of influence. Leave America right now."
Gu Juexi walked away, not even glancing at her.
Ye Yuwei pursed her lips in sadness, tears forming in her eyes.
Nalan Chunbo was more certain than ever now that Gu Tianmu was more terribly formidable than they had imagined. Gu Juexi knew his father well, so he had decided to take this matter into his own hands, keeping Ye Yuwei far away from Gu Tianmu before the matter was resolved.
"Weiwei, let's go," Nalan Chunbo announced suddenly. "Drop the investigation, let's just go."
He did not care about the truth anymore, all he wanted was to keep Ye Yuwei alive.
Ye Yuwei curled her hands into fists. She glared at Nalan Chunbo and said indignantly, "No, I'm not leaving. Even if I have to take the blame for this, I want to know what's going on. Besides, do you really think I can get out of America now?"
