Chapter 1388 Realization 3
Mu Yuchen’s expression was calm. He just shot him a side glance, then dropped his gaze and thought about it for a moment before his lowered voice then rang out, “I have one last question to ask you.”
“What is it?” Gu Qiwu did not open his eyes when he answered.
“Did you really have nothing to do with w.a.n.g Qin’s death at all?” Mu Yuchen’s silent gaze suddenly turned sharp as he fixed his eyes on Gu Qiwu, not wanting to miss any changes in his expression. “Maybe you have some thoughts on w.a.n.g Qin’s death, hmm?”
When he asked his, Gu Qiwu was stunned. Moments after that, he slowly opened his eyes and met Mu Yuchen’s questioning gaze.
“It’s got nothing to do with me. I admit that I sent the a.s.sa.s.sin, but my intention then was just to send you a warning and not have you obstruct my movements in City Z. Sadly, you all managed to get out of that sticky situation. I also got my people to contact that a.s.sa.s.sin after that, but it seemed like he had vanished into thin air as I couldn’t find him,” Gu Qiwu said calmly.
“Do you know why that happened?” Mu Yuchen squinted at him and asked coldly.
Gu Qiwu fell silent, but he did not answer. A while after, he said, “This incident has pa.s.sed for so long. Ah Chen, I suggest that you don’t look into it anymore. It doesn’t do you or anyone else any good. Even if you know the whole story, it might not be a good thing. Take me for example right now, or rather, look at us right now. Do you understand?”
Upon hearing that, Mu Yuchen only looked at him with an unfathomable gaze. “I don’t understand it, just like how someone like you wouldn’t understand what affection, kins.h.i.+p, friends.h.i.+p, and even romance are. You never understood any one of those.”
As Gu Qiwu listened, he paused, and his expression darkend. He did not say anything more afterwards.
Mu Yuchen’s handsome figure pa.s.sed him.
Mu Yuchen was about to walk out of the ward when Gu Qiwu suddenly called out to stop him, “Ah Chen!”
Mu Yuchen’s footsteps stopped too.
Gu Qiwu’s worn-out voice was raspy and concealed uneasiness as he asked, “Say, do you think Lings.h.i.+ will acknowledge me as her father?”
Mu Yuchen stopped walking, and while his back faced him, he thought about it before answering indifferently without turning around, “I don’t know, but if it were me, I wouldn’t.”
When Gu Qiwu heard his reply, his face instantly drained to an ashen pale tone, then he forced a smile and nodded. “Ah, so that’s what you think…Thank you…”
Mu Yuchen then walked out of the door.
The door closed with a loud bang as if it was a hammer that pounded against Gu Qiwu’s heart.
He did not know how to describe his feelings right now. Nonetheless, he released a long sigh, and when he turned to look out the window, he noticed that the sun was high up in the sky. The warm winter sun shone onto a corner of the window.
He had never been someone who realized things quickly. Furthermore, he was not quite enlightened about anything given all that had happened recently. However, from now on, he could feel that his life was a little dull now. Apart from the loneliness that always accompanied him, there was another invisible layer of bleakness.
Her bright little face could not help but flash across Gu Qiwu’s mind.
He remembered her clearly. She was impressively beautiful, and her grace was one worth cheris.h.i.+ng no matter what. Sadly, the good times were a thing of the past, and she was no more.
Mu Lingtian, their son, was his first child.
Gu Qiwu admitted that when he first met Mu Lingtian, he was biased towards him. There was not much he could do with the feelings he held in and could not express.
If he were to go back in time, if he had known that Doris would have used such an extreme method to hurt Lingtian, he might not have chosen to conceal things. Maybe, if he had not felt any love for Doris, that would have been fine.
Gu Qiwu cleared his thoughts. With the truth laid out before him, he finally had to admit that he was just muddling through life. He was not as free and at ease as he thought. His heart clung onto no one, and no one’s heart clung onto him…
This was true sorrow.
He did not want to keep thinking about this, and he dared not to.
When he walked out of hospital T, Mu Yuchen felt quite heavy though his expression was indifferent. Li Si watched him carefully and could see that he had something on his mind.
The car drove ahead for quite a distance before Li Si could not help asking, “Master, if Gu Qiwu knows something about w.a.n.g Qin, why won’t he say anything? Does he want to spend the rest of his life in jail? Yang Sheng probably knows something about this since he’s calling to ask. I’m worried about Second Qi…”
“Qi Lei isn’t the kind of person who can’t distinguish between right or wrong. He would have his own opinion on things. When this pa.s.ses, get him to meet me,” Mu Yuchen said after snapping back from his deep thoughts.
Li Si did not dare say more. He then picked up a magazine from the side to flip through.
“How are Doris’s funeral arrangements coming along?” Mu Yuchen asked calmly.
“Master, Qi Feng sent Morrison to handle the funeral. I’ve ordered the subordinates to be cooperative. Gu Lingsha’s plane might be landing in City Z tonight, and I’m worried that…”
He heard that Doris and Gu Lingsha were close, and based on Doris’s final move, Li Si could already guess that she had not intended on letting Mu Lings.h.i.+ live. That way, Hui Gu could be Gu Lingsha’s, and this was not a difficult possibility to speculate. From the way she criticized Mu Zi, he could already sense it.
When he saw Mu Yuchen fall silent, Li Si sighed and expressed his hope out loud, “May Gu Lingsha accept Doris’s atonement before she died and not go down the same path as Doris.”
After a while, the silent Mu Yuchen spoke up, “Arrange things with Gu Qiwu. Find a way to bail him out, and honor our previous commitment.”
When Li Si heard his instructions, he frowned. “Master, but I’m afraid that the thing with Mr. Gu will be difficult to handle. I’m worried that—”
“Even if it’s difficult, we have to do it. That evidence can’t be used as direct evidence. Besides, isn’t the murderer still at large? Let the authorities spend more time catching the suspect who commited the crime,” Mu Yuchen coldly cut him off before he could finish.
Bewildered, when Li Si noticed Mu Yuchen’s cold expression, he thought about it, then softly said, “Yes, Master!”
