Chapter 1557: What Was This Turn Of Events?
She kept threatening to kill people.
If Huo Shaoheng, who was on the other side, had heard this, he would definitely give her a “moral education”.
However, Lu Jin didn’t seem to think that there was anything wrong with what Gu Nianzhi had said. Instead, he nodded repeatedly and agreed, “Okay, if he has ulterior motives, then kill him.”
Seeing his serious expression, Gu Nianzhi was shocked.
He agreed to any of her suggestions without hesitation, regardless of whether it was right or wrong. Although she wasn’t used to it, she felt very warm in her heart!
Gu Nianzhi pursed her lips into a smile and said, “He’s very powerful. I was just saying so casually. If I really wanted to kill him, why would I save him? Wouldn’t my injury be in vain?”
“That’s different.” Lu Jin shook his head frantically. “You saved him because you’re kind-hearted and don’t want to hurt the innocent. You now want to kill him because he deserves it. He deserves to die.”
Fine, she finally understood.
Her father was the kind who spoiled his daughter. He was a firm supporter of the two “everythings”.
He supported everything his daughter supported.
He would oppose everything his daughter opposed.
Moreover, he didn’t seem to have any legal or moral boundaries in his mind.
That was right. If he had that boundary, he wouldn’t have done such a crazy and bold thing, and she wouldn’t have been born.
Gu Nianzhi suddenly felt that as a big lawyer, she still had to correct some of Lu Jin’s incorrect beliefs.
For example, she could kill the Ace of the Far East, but she couldn’t use illegal means.
If she wanted to, she could legally “kill” him in a hundred ways.
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes flashed.
This didn’t go against Major General Huo’s teachings.
Of course, if she really wanted to deal with the Ace of the Far East, the prerequisite was that he really harbored ill intentions toward them.
Gu Nianzhi knew that being merciful to the enemy was cruel to one’s own people.
She wasn’t a saint to that extent.
She continued to mentally prepare herself as she talked to Lu Jin about the plan. She planned to put the Ace of the Far East in his place after dinner.
Half an hour later, Lu Yuan came over and knocked on the door. “Dinner is ready. How do you plan to eat?”
“Bring it in.” Lu Jin seized every opportunity to be with Gu Nianzhi. “There are tables and chairs here.”
As he spoke, Lu Jin shook Gu Nianzhi’s bed up so that she could sit down and set up the small dining table in front of her.
He then brought over a folding table and placed it beside Gu Nianzhi’s bed so that they could eat together.
Lu Yuan didn’t say anything and silently brought the food over on a large tray.
He placed a cup of milky white bone soup, a cup of red dates, and goji berry chicken congee on the small dining table in front of Gu Nianzhi. He said, “You just had surgery, so it’s not appropriate to eat those things that are difficult to digest. These are all soup and water, so they’re good for your appearance and body.”
The aroma of the soup and congee assailed her nostrils, and it was the best way to preserve the aroma of the ingredients. It wasn’t the smell of thick red sauce or spicy, sour, and sweet condiments.
Gu Nianzhi took a deep breath, closed her eyes in ecstasy, and praised, “It smells so good!”
Lu Yuan’s culinary skills were really superb, to the point of returning to the basics.
Lu Jin sat down beside her bed and said, “I’ll feed you. You need to recover from your injuries. You can’t move too much.”
Gu Nianzhi had just searched for a “bug” and was already panting from exhaustion.
It was indeed difficult for her to eat by herself.
However, she didn’t expect Lu Yuan and Lu Jin to think of this, so she planned to eat by herself while enduring the discomfort.
She didn’t expect Lu Jin to really think of this, and he even took the spoon to feed her very naturally.
Lu Yuan watched from the side and almost sighed.
Father and daughter were indeed intimate.
Looking at Lu Jin’s considerate expression, she really couldn’t tell that he was a person with interpersonal disorder.
In the past, at their company’s Board of Directors meeting, Lu Jin was definitely someone who only cared about eating himself. After eating, he wouldn’t give face to anyone and would just turn around to leave.
Of course, Lu Jin despised the members of their company’s Board of Directors as idiots, and that was also an important reason he didn’t pay attention to them.
When it came to his daughter, all the problems suddenly weren’t a problem anymore.
Even the interpersonal disorder was cured without medicine.
Lu Yuan scooped a small bowl of soup for himself with a smile and watched the father-daughter interaction as they ate.
At this moment, the doorbell rang.
“Who would come at this time?” Lu Yuan muttered as he picked up his phone to take a look at the surveillance camera. He was stunned.
“What’s wrong?” Gu Nianzhi took a sip of the milky white bone soup Lu Jin had fed her. From the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse of Lu Yuan’s serious expression and was very surprised.
Lu Yuan was such a shrewd person. All his feelings were hidden. It was rare for him to show such emotions.
Lu Yuan looked up and smiled. He showed them the surveillance footage on his phone. “Take a look for yourself.”
Gu Nianzhi and Lu Jin looked over at the same time.
Lu Yuan’s phone showed the surveillance footage of the main entrance.
At the entrance of their apartment stood a handsome, gorgeous-looking man. It was the deputy consul of the Far East, Peter aka Huo Shaoheng, whom they had been talking about giving a hard time.
In one hand, he carried a beautifully wrapped fruit basket filled with fiery dragon fruits, yellow mangoes, round oranges, purplish red cherries, golden cantaloupes, and a few ginseng strips tied with red ribbons.
In the other hand, he held a large bouquet of flowers — a bouquet of blue little temptress roses!
There were even tiny droplets of water, making the whole bouquet look even more fresh and lively, on the petals, as if it had just been plucked from the garden.
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
Lu Jin was immediately filled with murderous intent. “He still dares to come?! Does he think we don’t know? ! I’m going to teach him a lesson!”
“Don’t be rash!” Lu Yuan quickly pulled him back. “He came prepared. Aren’t you afraid that Nianzhi will be embarrassed if you confront him in such a hurry?”
In the past, when Lu Jin was rash and wanted to cause trouble, Lu Yuan was basically at his wit’s end. He could only deal with the aftermath after he was done.
But now that he had Gu Nianzhi, Lu Yuan was very confident that he could give Lu Jin some restraint.
Sure enough, Lu Jin immediately stopped in his tracks and turned to look at Gu Nianzhi. He asked nervously, “Nianzhi, what do you want to do?”
The corners of Gu Nianzhi’s mouth twitched. “Let him in, of course… Let’s see what he’s up to.”
“Okay.” Lu Jin nodded crisply. “Whatever you say. I’ll get the door.”
“Don’t go!” Lu Yuan pulled him back again. “Hide for a while. I’ll get the door.”
Lu Jin came back to his senses and quickly said, “Then I’ll stay inside. There are surveillance cameras there anyway, so I can see you guys.”
He quickly walked into the secret medical room prepared for Gu Nianzhi, closed the door, and watched the situation outside through the surveillance cameras.
After Lu Jin went in, Lu Yuan nodded at Gu Nianzhi. “Shall I open the door and let him in?”
“Yes.” Gu nianzhi smoothed her hair to make herself look more tidy.
As a patient who had just been seriously injured and had undergone surgery, she only looked a little pale. She wasn’t very haggard, but her hair was indeed a little messy.
Lu Yuan quickly walked out of Gu Nianzhi’s room, through the spacious living room, to the back of the main door, and opened the door.
The Ace of the Far East, the current deputy consul, Peter, politely bowed to Lu Yuan. “Director Lu, I didn’t expect you to still be here. I’m here to see lawyer Gu, and to apologize to her.”
Lu Yuan was shocked. The deputy consul had responded so quickly. They had just discovered his bug, and he had noticed it, and had immediately come over to “test the waters and remedy the situation”…
He wanted to see what tricks he was playing.
Lu Yuan’s face was indifferent as he turned his body away. “Consul Peter, you must be joking. You are a diplomat of a country, and no matter what you do, you will have diplomatic immunity. Why are you so polite to us commoners?”
Whether it was enemies or friends, he had always left some leeway in his words. This was the first time he had said something like this without mercy.
It was clear how angry and anxious he was.
But on the surface, it was completely unnoticeable.
The Ace of the Far East “Deputy Consul” Peter bowed slightly and slowly walked in. He said coldly, “I will explain it clearly to lawyer Gu.”
“If your bug hadn’t been discovered, would you have come to beg for forgiveness?” Lu Yuan closed the door behind him and looked at him coldly. Murderous intent flashed in his deep eyes.
Peter didn’t look back, so of course, he couldn’t see Lu Yuan’s gaze, but even if he did, he wouldn’t care.
There was only one person he was sorry towards, and that was Gu Nianzhi.
She had saved him, but he had eavesdropped on her. She had also found out about it. What an “awkward”csituation!
When he arrived at Gu Nianzhi’s guest room, Peter put down the fruit basket and walked over to Gu Nianzhi’s bedside with the huge bouquet of blue little temptress roses. He knelt down on one knee, and he said bluntly, “Miss Gu, please forgive my rudeness. I didn’t mean anything by planting a bug on you. It’s just a professional habit of mine.”
He paused for a moment before continuing, “And I said that I would stay by your side until you recovered. I was worried that you wouldn’t let me stay here with you, so I planted a bug on you. I just wanted to know if you were safe at all times.”
Gu Nianzhi looked at him with her dark eyes and said coldly, “If that’s the case, should I thank you for your meticulous care?”
“I wouldn’t dare.” Peter held a bouquet of flowers in front of her and looked at her with a hint of admiration in his eyes. “It’s only been 10 hours, 32 minutes, and 13 seconds since I left you yesterday, but I already feel like days are passing by like years.”
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
“After hearing those words yesterday, I was shocked and worried about your condition. I hope you can give me this opportunity to stay by your side until you recover.”
Peter stood up and placed the bouquet of blue little temptress roses on the bedside table beside Gu Nianzhi’s bed. He said coldly and haughtily, “My professional habits tell me that you’re facing more than just one enemy on the surface. She can’t do so much on her own.”
“Your enemy is very secretive, very powerful, and very sinister and vicious. I happen to have the expertise in this area, and can help you deal with your enemies who are hiding in the shadows. Trust me, only the KGB’s methods can let those who have hurt you know what it means to wish they were dead.”
Lu Yuan followed her in and was shocked when he heard what she said. “What do you mean? Who are you? !”
Gu Nianzhi snorted and her pupils constricted. “Mr. Peter, Young Master He told me your true identity. If you want to harm me, I naturally know how to deal with you.”
Peter quickly said, “Please believe me. I’m the only one who knows about you. The two listening devices are my personal actions and have nothing to do with my work.”
He was hinting that he wouldn’t tell the Soviet KGB about her situation.
As he spoke, Peter turned back to look at Lu Yuan. He calmly and confidently said, “Director Lu, since you have a close relationship with Miss Gu, I’ll tell you the truth. I’m part of the KGB, so you must cooperate with me in order to ensure Miss Gu’s safety. Besides, aren’t you looking for a nurse? I think I’m the most suitable.”
“You can lock me up here and I will take care for Miss Gu. I won’t go anywhere until she recovers, and I won’t contact anyone. If you don’t believe me, you can physically block all the radio signals. I won’t have any complaints.”
He raised his hand and made a sign of surrender. “Director Lu, if you’re worried, you can search me.”
Gu Nianzhi sat at the side and watched this scene in confusion.
She was clearly going to question this Ace of the Far East!
How did he suddenly become her personal guard? !
What was this turn of events? !
