Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 627
Chapter 627: A Well-prepared Murder Attempt
Song Shijing knew that this was no small matter, so he called Gu Zheng immediately.
Gu Zheng’s eyes were filled with coldness. He did not understand why Gu Weiming was suddenly attacking him.
Suddenly, he tightened his grip on the steering wheel and stepped on the brakes. His expression changed as his heart trembled. However, his expression did not change. “Xi Xi!”
Qiao Xi slowly opened her eyes and frowned when she saw Gu Zheng’s solemn expression. “What’s wrong?”
“Do you still remember that there’s a patch of grass in front? When we’re reaching that spot, jump down from the car,” Gu Zheng said calmly.
Qiao Xi’s pupils constricted abruptly, and her body instantly stiffened. However, Gu Zheng’s eyes were still calm and emotionless as he said indifferently, “Xi Xi, I’m sorry. I promised to protect you from harm, but I might not be able to do it this time.”
Qiao Xi clenched her fists. She knew that someone had tampered with the car.
Gu Zheng’s voice was calm. “The brake line must have been cut. Get off first. I’ll be fine.”
After passing that patch of grass, there was a sharp turn ahead. With the current speed of the car, it was very difficult to pass through. There was a possibility that they would fall off the cliff directly. The chances of Gu Zheng surviving were very slim.
Qiao Xi knew that the patch of grass was her last chance. If she couldn’t jump out of the car then, then…
Her face was pale as unprecedented fear surged in her heart. Gu Zheng, on the other hand, had a calm expression and was still controlling the car. He was driving toward the patch of grass. “Xi Xi, be good and listen to me. I’ll drive toward the patch of grass. Get ready to jump off the car. I’ll come back to find you in a while.”
Qiao Xi was scared witless. They were about to reach the patch of grass. If the car continued to drive forward, it would only fall off the cliff.
Gu Zheng tightly gripped the steering wheel with both hands, his voice ice-cold and serious. “Qiao Xi, quickly jump!”
With the car’s current speed, she would definitely be injured even if she fell on the patch of grass. Meanwhile, Gu Zheng couldn’t even jump out of the car. What should he do?

“Don’t worry, I can handle it. You’ll make me panic if you’re by my side. Jump off the car first. I promise I’ll come back to find you.”
Qiao Xi hesitated for a few seconds before nodding with reddened eyes.
She and Gu Zheng had been through so much since they were young. Every time, they managed to survive. This time, there would be no problem as well.
Qiao Xi kept telling herself to trust Gu Zheng. He would definitely do as he promised. She opened the car window and took a deep breath.
All of a sudden, a loud rumble came from ahead. Gu Zheng shouted loudly, “Xi Xi!”
A huge truck was rushing over, and its target was them. If Qiao Xi really jumped down now, then she would be crushed to death by the truck in the next moment.
The mountain road was narrow, and their car was out of control. Gu Zheng could only take a gamble. He turned the steering wheel and drove the car into the patch of grass, allowing the truck to hit only the driver’s seat. At the last second, he used his body to protect Qiao Xi.
Qiao Xi lost control of her body, and a wave of rumbles resounded in her ears. She felt a dull pain in her body. Her internal organs had been shaken up, causing her vision to become blurry before she fainted.
“Mrs. Gu’s condition isn’t serious. She’ll wake up soon, but President Gu needs to undergo surgery. We can’t guarantee when he’ll wake up.
“Usually, when a driver encounters danger, they would subconsciously turn the steering wheel to the left. The impact of the crash would be focused on the front passenger, while the driver would be able to avoid the brunt of the damage. This is the first time I’ve seen someone like President Gu turning the steering wheel to the right. He allowed himself to be hit by the truck. He even protected Mrs. Gu with his body.
“That’s why Mrs. Gu only suffered minor injuries, but President Gu…”
Qiao Xi felt a buzz in her ears. Who was speaking?
“Logically speaking, the people who take that road are usually heading to Nine Heavens Villa. However, the person in charge of Nine Heavens Villa said they weren’t expecting a delivery. Furthermore, based on the situation at the scene, the target of that truck was clearly President Gu’s car. It seems like it was a well-prepared murder attempt!”
“The police have stepped in to investigate, but the truck driver is dead. We’ll have to look for other leads.”
“Do you think this murder attempt was aimed at President Gu or Little Six?”
“We can’t be sure. The other party might have wanted to kill both of them!”
