Chapter 33: Sending Them to the Hospital
The wine bottle fell to the ground and instantly shattered.
He Qi was pressed against the wall by two burly men and could not fight back.
"What a bunch of cowards." Chu Yuzhou waited for a long time but did not see them make a move. He shook his head in disappointment.
Shen Yi said expressionlessly, "They're just a bunch of fair-weather friends. What do you expect them to do?"
"How boring." Chu Yuzhou clicked his tongue. 𝗯𝐞𝗱𝗻𝐨𝘃𝗲𝐥.𝗼𝗿𝐠
He turned to look at Pei Zhi, who was still staring at the screen, and raised an eyebrow. "Brother Pei, do you feel better now?"
"That means you are not satisfied. Then I'll get them to go on beating for another ten minutes. What do you think?"
"Up to you." Pei Zhi looked away.
He cracked his knuckles and tapped his knee as he said indifferently, "Shen Yi, call two ambulances over."
"Alright." Shen Yi thought for a moment and knew what he was up to. "President Pei, you're too considerate."
"What are you two talking about?" Chu Yuzhou understood every word they said, but he did not know what they meant.
"He wants me to rip them off."
"Send them to the hospital." Shen Yi opened his contact list, not wanting to comment on his unintelligence.
Chu Yuzhou understood now.
After praising Pei Zhi, he had another idea. "Then how about I make a list of things they broke and ask them for compensation?"
"Isn't that what you should do?"
Pei Zhi glanced at him and suspected that he had drunk too much tonight and had gone stupid.
He reminded her, "Set the price higher."
"Of course!" Chu Yuzhou ordered the burly men to stop when the ambulances arrived.
He turned off the screen and closed the laptop in front of him. "We've watched the show. Shall we go up and play pool for a while?"
"Okay." Pei Zhi left the sofa first.
When he walked past the messy private room, he narrowed his eyes and looked at Gu Quan, who was lying on the floor.
Gu Quan, who felt a strong sense of oppression, raised his head with difficulty, but he only saw a shadow.
He stared at the door for a long time.
It was not until the doctors carrying a few stretchers entered his vision that he was able to return to his senses.
The sound of high heels clicking could be heard.
Su Tian, who rushed to the inpatient department, found Gu Quan's ward with the help of a nurse.
"What happened to you?" She pounced on him with red eyes, her gaze wandering over the wounds on his body.
When Gu Quan saw her cry, his heart tightened.
He stroked her cheek and smiled gently. "I'm fine. I'm just slightly injured."
"Is this a slight injury?" Su Tian pointed at his arm and shoulder.
"I'll be fine in two days." Gu Quan wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes and felt his heart ache. "Don't cry. Be good."
Su Tian bit her lower lip. "Why did you fight?"
"Song Zhen got into a conflict with someone else."
"Is he all right?"
"Still in the operating room."
"That serious?" Su Tian widened her eyes in disbelief. "Did you call the police?"
Gu Quan coughed and motioned for her to get some water. After he was done drinking, he said, "Help me go over to check in on him."
"Okay." Su Tian wrapped him in another blanket and kissed his cheek before leaving.
She found the nurse on duty and asked about Song Zhen before heading to He Qi's ward.
One of He Qi's ribs was broken, and he was more seriously injured than Gu Quan. He was pretty much bedridden.
When he saw Su Tian coming over, he seemed to be drowned in joy. His pale face was more radiant.
"Are you in a lot of pain?" Su Tian asked anxiously. Her eyes were blurry from crying, making his heart skip a beat.
She had always known He Qi's feelings towards her, but unfortunately, he was completely incomparable to Gu Quan.
Even if she didn't know Gu Quan, it was still impossible for her to have anything to do with him.
All she could give him was concern.
"Not really." He looked at her intently, unable to hide the affection in his eyes. "Did you just get to the hospital? Are you tired?"
"I'm not tired." Su Tian touched the bandage on his chest and sighed. "Those people are animals."
"They're all trained." He Qi did not want to embarrass himself in front of her, so he did not tell her how he was beaten up.
In order to spend more time with her, he brought up Lin Jiao and said, "Brother Quan wanted to make it up to her."
Su Tian's expression changed slightly.
During this period of time, she had been so focused on contacting her former friends that she had forgotten about that woman.
She smiled faintly. "It's only right for him to make it up to her."
"I think you'd better not let Brother Quan have anything to do with her. What if she ruins your relationship?"
"I don't think she can."
"Why?" At the thought of Lin Jiao's face, He Qi was filled with disgust. "She's very scheming."
"She still likes Gu Quan?"
Su Tian pretended to be deep in thought and did not show it no matter how disdainful she was. She only said, "Actually, I can relate to her."
"You can relate to her, but can she relate to you?" He Qi sneered and advised, "Su Tian, you have to think for yourself."
"Alright." With that, Su Tian ended the topic.
After leaving the ward, she walked along the corridor and called Lin Jiao in a quiet place.
A busy signal came from the receiver.
Su Tian did not give up and dialed again.
She leaned against the window and looked at the bright moon in the sky. The frustration in her heart became stronger and stronger as she waited.
Just as she lost her patience, a voice gentle like water on the river entered her ears.
"Who is this?"
"Miss Lin?" Her voice was very soft and carried a faint smile. "I'm Su Tian."
Lin Jiao was dumbstruck for a moment.
Wrapped in a blanket, she turned around sleepily and turned on the night light. "What's the matter?"
"I want to talk to you about compensation. Are you free tomorrow afternoon?"
"Compensation for what?"
Su Tian replied softly, "We will compensate you for what you've done for the past two years and try our best to make it up to you."
Lin Jiao sneered, and her sleepiness suddenly disappeared.
She picked up the cup and took two sips. After a short moment of anger, she regained her rationality and said indifferently, "Is this Gu Quan's idea?"
"Yes." Su Tian sounded slightly triumphant. "You two broke up because of me, so in addition to the compensation he owes you, I will also compensate you."
