Chapter 1003: Fulfilling a Promise

Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio  Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio

Gu Lin was momentarily at a loss. As he hesitated on how to handle Gu Chen, Shen Luan swiftly moved forward and disarmed Gu Lin, knocking the blade from his hand with a decisive strike. He then kicked Gu Lin to the ground and, with another hand, pulled Gu Chen and retreated to Shen Xi’s side.

At this point, the cries of pain echoed from Gu Qing and Gu Lin’s men as they lay writhing on the ground, while the brothers themselves were restrained against the wall.

Shen Xi’s chilly voice cut through the tense air, “Throw them out!”

The Gu family brothers and Qian Tong’s men were tossed outside by Shen Xi’s men, squatting in a circle under the blazing sun, leaving only Shen Xi and Gu Chen inside the house.

Shen Xi stared at the disheveled figure of Gu Chen on the sofa, her voice cold as she demanded, “Speak! Who attacked Guan Lei?”

Gu Chen didn’t directly answer Shen Xi’s question. Instead, with a sorrowful expression, he lifted his head and asked, “Did you come to rescue me today because you were worried about me, even just a little?”

“I don’t want to hear nonsense. You said you would tell me if I saved you, and I did. Now, it’s time for you to fulfill your promise,” Shen Xi’s tone was cold and firm.

Gu Chen lowered his head in disappointment, then picked up his phone with his bloodied hand from the floor. His fingers trembled as he tapped the screen, sending some information to Shen Xi. “This is what you want.”

Shen Xi took out her phone, opened the data sent by Gu Chen, then turned and left without a word.

Gu Chen sat on the couch, ignoring the wounds on his hands and the bloodstains on his lips. He stared at Shen Xi’s departing figure like a stone.

It wasn’t until Shen Xi reached the doorway that she spoke again, “Do you need me to take your assistant with me?”

In Shen Xi’s eyes, since Qian Tong had betrayed Gu Chen, there was a possibility that he might resort to drastic measures to avoid punishment, even killing Gu Chen and fleeing.

Since she had obtained what she wanted, she might as well help Gu Chen with some miscellaneous matters. After all, Gu Chen was now alone with no one to protect him.

She considered it finishing what she had started, a sort of clearing the air.

Gu Chen’s initially dim eyes showed a glimmer of hope. He softly said, “Thank you, Xi.”

Shen Xi remained silent, taking Gu Qing, Gu Lin, and Qian Tong’s men with her as she left.

Shen Xi handed Qian Tong and his men over to the police, accusing them of fighting and causing a disturbance.

In her opinion, detaining these people for a few days would give Gu Chen enough time to recover.

Before Shen Xi could send Gu Qing and Gu Lin to the investigation team, Gu Chen arrived at the Gu family’s old mansion with injuries, promptly expelling Gu Lin and Gu Qing from the family lineage on the grounds of their attempted assassination of the family head.

As the Gu family members watched the video presented by Gu Chen, they expressed regret over the brothers’ actions but ultimately supported Gu Chen’s decision.

Therefore, when the investigation team received evidence of Gu Qing and Gu Lin attacking Guan Lei, they rushed to the Gu family but learned that Gu Qing and Gu Lin were no longer part of the Gu Group.

The investigators knew that the Gu family was obviously aware of something in advance, enabling them to quickly distance themselves from Gu Qing and Gu Lin. Still, they had no grounds to question Gu Chen’s decision.

After all, in the surveillance video, Gu Chen was indeed beaten by Gu Lin and Gu Qing, and it was the young miss of the Shen family who intervened to save him. Thus, the conflict between Gu Chen and the Gu brothers was a fact.

Gu Qing and Gu Lin, who had ordered the infiltration of the Imperial Capital Military University to steal national secrets and attack researchers, had been apprehended.

Unfortunately, during the transfer to prison, Gu Qing and Gu Lin were rescued.

The suspicious eyes of the public turned towards the Gu family. Even though the Gu family had severed ties with Gu Qing and Gu Lin, people wondered if it was just a move to disassociate themselves from any wrongdoing.

To prove the Gu family’s innocence, Gu Chen pledged his life to bring back Gu Qing and Gu Lin. Dead or alive!

While the Gu family was busy defending itself, the Guan family was engaged in internal strife.

In these few days, the elders of the Guan family’s branches took advantage of their seniority to settle in the Guan family’s residence. Even when facing Guan Yi, who had been cleared of suspicion, they remained fearless.

In their eyes, even though Guan Yi’s lineage had ended, the Guan family couldn’t afford to meet the same fate. This presented an opportunity for their descendants to become the head of the Guan family.
