“Cultivate? No, I just want to see how capable Rong Rui is. But now it seems that his ability is also limited. He is too anxious. He couldn’t even wait for me to die in a few years”
Rong Yu said casually, “He’s really boring.”
Gu Qingchen stared at Rong Yu for a long time and nodded heavily. “You are quite boring.”
Rong Yu was probably the only one who was so bored.
Rong Yu laughed out loud and stared at Gu Qingchen. He changed the topic. “But… I think I won’t be bored in the future.”
Gu Qingchen’s heart skipped a beat. She felt that Rong Yu’s words were directed at her. She could not understand what he meant.
“How are you going to deal with Rong Rui?”
Gu Qingchen had to admit that when she was facing Rong Yu, she would be distracted. She quickly shifted her attention back to Rong Yu so that he would not see her blushed face. It would not be good if he thought that she was infatuated with him.
“He is not worth my time and effort. Why don’t… I leave him to you. If you want to take the business route, you have to use a few people to practice. Rong Rui is a good candidate.”
For a moment, Gu Qingchen felt that Rong Yu was too crafty. He wanted her to deal with Rong Rui as a practice, how ridiculous?
At this moment, if Rong Rui knew what Rong Yu was thinking, he would be so angry that he would die. Rong Rui thought that he carried out his plan flawlessly, but in fact, it was just clown work to Rong Yu.
“Rong Rui is a member of your Rong family, and didn’t you say that Rong Rui might be a person who can take over the Rong Group, but he still needs to be polished?”
Rong Yu’s thoughts were too difficult to guess, Gu Qingchen did not know what he was going to do.
“That was the original plan, but he did not know the immensity of heaven and earth. He harmed my people, so he would have to say goodbye to Rong Group.”
Harmed one of his people?
“Touch one of your people?” Gu Qingchen was stunned and didn’t understand.
Rong Yu nodded with a straight face. His eyes never left Gu Qingchen. The reflection of the fire was sparkling. “Yes, he touched one of my people.”
“Indeed. If it weren’t for Rong Rui, Butler Qin and Xiao Liu wouldn’t have been hurt. I wonder how they are now.”
Gu Qingchen mumbled.
Rong Yu shook his head and smiled. “You seem to have forgotten about yourself.”
“Me?” Gu Qingchen pointed at herself and looked away. “I’m not one of your people.”
Although her voice was not loud, she heard it clearly.
“You are my personal physician, so you’re one of my people.”
His voice was very soft, but it was full of dominance. Rong Yu’s words had made Gu Qingchen blush and her heart beat faster. She did not know how to respond.
“How are you feeling?”
Gu Qingchen had always tried to change the topic. Rong Yu’s lips curled up. “I’m fine.”
Gu Qingchen sighed slightly. At such a time, only Rong Yu would say “I’m fine”.
“Do you want to drink some water?”
Gu Qingchen asked almost subconsciously, because Rong Yu’s voice became more and more hoarse, which was caused by a fever.
Rong Yu looked around and then shook his head, “No need, there’s no drinkable water around.”
Indeed, there was only the river water around. Rong Yu was germaphobe, so he wouldn’t drink the river water.
However, the two of them had been struggling for so long and there was no water or food. Rong Yu was still injured and the sky was dark. He didn’t know when Butler Qin would find them.
“But I’m a little hungry.” Rong Yu’s eyes deepened and he suddenly spoke.
“Then I’ll go find something to eat. You wait here.”
Gu Qingchen did not think too much about it. When she heard that Rong Yu was hungry, she decided to go to the river to see if there were any fish or fruit trees around.
Hence, she added some branches to the fire and went to the river to take a look.
Rong Yu saw that after Gu Qingchen left, he revealed a pained expression. He curled up as if he was in great pain.
Even so, Rong Yu did not make a sound. He gritted his teeth and endured the pain
It seemed that the poison in his body was acting up again. There was no agarwood bathtub here, so it could not relieve the pain, let alone make him relax. He could only grit his teeth and endure it.
On the other side, Gu Qingchen found a thicker branch and walked to the riverside. She looked left and right to see if there were any fish inside.
However, she stood there foolishly for a long time and did not see any fish pass by.
That’s right. They came up from the river just now. When they were in the river, they did not feel any fish in the water and there were no fruit trees around. It seemed that Rong Yu did not have anything to eat.
That’s not right!
There seemed to be something wrong.
Gu Qingchen was still holding the thick branch in her hand. She kept feeling that there was something wrong.
She had thought of it!
The moment she thought of it, Gu Qingchen threw away the branch in her hand and hurriedly ran back.
Rong Yu was such a smart person. He knew long ago that there were no fish in the river, and it did not look like there were fruit trees around. Most importantly, he was so hoarse that he refused to drink the messy water. How could he tell her that he was hungry in such an unclean place like the wilderness!
In other words, Rong Yu was just looking for an excuse to get rid of her.
As for the reason… Gu Qingchen could roughly guess it. She was anxious and ran back as fast as she could.
When the cannon returned, she had not even caught her breath when she saw Rong Yu’s pained expression under the firelight and how he was trying his best to endure it!
He was deliberately trying to get rid of her. He did not want her to see his current appearance. He did not want her to worry!
This man… really made her worried and angry at the same time!
Now was not the time to be angry. Gu Qingchen hurriedly walked to Rong Yu’s side and squatted down to check on Rong Yu’s condition.
The moment Rong Yu saw Gu Qingchen, his eyes revealed a helpless yet gentle expression. His voice contained a hint of forbearance. “Hehe, You’re really smart. You’re back so soon.”
Seeing him like this, Gu Qingchen could not help but feel angry. However, she quickly took Rong Yu’s pulse. “If I’m not smart, you’re going to suffer alone!”
At this time, Rong Yu still had a smile on his face. Gu Qingchen admired him.
Hearing this answer, Gu Qingchen resisted the urge to roll her eyes. Rong Yu did not care about her body at all.
“No matter how good my medical skills are, I can’t cure a person who doesn’t care about his body. If you continue to do this, I think you’d better find someone else!”
Gu Qingchen said it very seriously. Doctors did not like to treat people who did not care about their bodies the most. If the patience did not care about their own body, there was nothing she could do to help them.
Of course, if it were anyone else, Gu Qingchen would not be so angry. However, this person was Rong Yu. She could not watch Rong Yu suffer and watch his life pass by bit by bit.
