Chapter 198: I’ll Take the Blame
Gu Er quickly organized his words and answered Yan Xi’s question.
“The person who injured CEO has been caught. Gu Liu and Gu Qi are still investigating who the mastermind is.”
Gu Er sighed. “One of the murderers is the student representative of the school sponsored by CEO. That’s why we allowed him to approach, but…”
“Student representative?” Yan Xi frowned. “Not yet an adult?”
“That’s right. Both of them are only sixteen. I don’t know where they got the guns, but they shot CEO directly in the shoulder.”
“The student representative is underage. No wonder you let your guard down.” Yan Xi changed the topic and continued, “Then why didn’t Gu Shen go to the hospital?”
“CEO said that it wouldn’t be good if this matter were to be exposed. Moreover, this is a critical period. He doesn’t want others to know the fact that he is injured.”
“Just because of this, you don’t send him to the hospital. You guys are really stupid.” Yan Xi pursed her lips and looked at Gu Er unhappily. “Take Gu Shen to the hospital next time. I’ll take responsibility if he blames you.”
Gu Er nodded vigorously. “Yes, Madam.”
Yan Xi asked some other questions and figured out the whole story. She threw the wet wipes into the trash can.
“You can go back now.”
Gu Er subconsciously refused. “I need to stay until CEO wakes up.”
“He is still undergoing treatment. Your staying here won’t help him recover quicker, will it?”
“No, it won’t”
“Then go back.” Yan Xi said, “I’ll contact you if anything happens.”
As soon as Gu Er left, Gu Yi walked in. He had just finished suturing and his arm was hanging in front of him in an awkward posture. His face was pale, but he did not forget to ask about Gu Shen’s situation.
“How is CEoOnow?”
“The doctor is treating the gunshot wound. Although the wound is serious, it won’t endanger his life. Don’t worry.” After saying that, Yan Xi’s gaze fell on Gu Yi’s hand. He used his hand to shield Gu Shen from the fatal blow to his neck.
“Wait a minute, I have something to give you.” Yan Xi took out the special healing ointment from a drawer and handed it to Gu Yi. “When you go back, apply this ointment on your wound. This will help it heal faster.”
Gu Yi did not take it. He recognized this ointment. It was a special medicine that had not been released overseas. It cost 60,000 US dollars per tube. Moreover, this special medicine was banned in the country and there were almost no channels to obtain it.
“This is too expensive. I can’t take it.”
“Take it. There’s still an unopened one at home. You protected Gu Shen. It’s only right that you take it. Otherwise, Gu Shen will feel guilty.”
Yan Xi’s words were so sincere that it made Gu Yi hard to refuse. He respectfully accepted the medicine.
“Thank you, madam.”
When the two of them left the study, the doctor happened to be coming out of Gu Shen’s room. He wiped the sweat from his forehead. “Madam, Mr. Gu’s wound has been treated and immunoglobulin injected.”
“Okay, can you leave some more anti-inflammatory medicine?”
“Of course.” When the doctor took the medicine, he asked curiously, “Madam, are you also a surgeon? That wound is sutured so skillfully and beautifully.”
“Not really. I just happened to know one thing or two about it” Yan Xi smiled at him and deliberately avoided the topic. “Thank you for your hard work. I’ll arrange for a driver to send you home later.”
Gu Shen’s wound had been treated, but he was unable to fall asleep because of the pain.
His clothes and bedsheets were already covered in blood. Yan Xi could not handle it alone, so she called her trusted servant to clean up the bedsheets. She went to get a bottle of hot water, soaked the towel, and helped Gu Shen wipe the blood off his face.
Gu Shen forced himself to look up and saw Yan Xi pursing her lips. Her eyes were filled with displeasure. Even when she met Gu Shen’s gaze, she was still expressionless.
Gu Shen had never seen her like this before. For a moment, he panicked. He wanted to say something, but he accidentally pulled his wound. What he wanted to say became a cry of pain.
“Are you okay?” Yan Xi immediately became nervous. “Does your wound hurt?”
