Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 728
Chapter 728: Purgatory
Gu Yao said coldly, “I don’t care how Gu Zheng wants to deal with you. You owe him too much. You caused Eldest Miss Lu Qingyun’s death and ruined Gu Zheng’s life. You made him live in the shadows of his childhood. Even if you die, you deserve it! You raised me, but you also harmed me. From now on, we don’t owe each other anything!”
“What right do you have to hit me?!” Huang Lilan shouted crazily.
Gu Yao said, “The two slaps were for Qiao Xi.”
Huang Lilan was stunned for a few seconds. She looked at him in disbelief and roared angrily. “You actually hit me for Qiao Xi? I’m your mother. Who is she for you to hit me?!”
Gu Yao sneered. “You used Shen Ying and Meng Wan to deal with her and even joined forces with Qiao Rou to set up a car accident. Aren’t your actions worth me slapping you twice?
“At first, I thought that Lu Yan and Qiao Rou were conspiring to kill Gu Zheng and Qiao Xi. Later on, I found out that you contacted Qiao Rou. That watch was given to you by Qiao Rou, and you gave it back to Qiao Rou!”
Huang Lilan’s body trembled. She did not expect her innocent son to know everything.
“Since you wanted to kill Qiao Xi, you thought it was best if you could kill Gu Zheng as well. That way, you can use Qiao Rou to get rid of these two thorns in your side. From then on, the Gu family would belong to Lu Yan! Qiao Xi didn’t come to settle the score with you, but I can’t take this lying down!”
“For her, for this b*tch…” Huang Lilan gasped with difficulty as if she would die the next second.
Gu Yao clenched his fists tightly. He was grateful to Qiao Xi because she saved Gu Zheng. She allowed Gu Zheng to gradually leave his painful memories behind and become a normal human.
It was also because he met Qiao Xi that he was able to realize things in time and not continue to be deceived by Yao Mengqing as her chess piece. He started a new chapter of his life.
“Gu Yao! Hit me! It’s my fault. I can apologize to Qiao Xi now. I’ll kneel down and beg her to forgive me! As long as you can save me, I’ll do anything you ask! You can’t leave me here. Gu Zheng will torture me to death! I don’t want to go to the third floor underground! Save me!”
Huang Lilan begged bitterly. Her tears and snot mixed together, making her look miserable.
“Third floor underground?”
“That’s hell on earth! The Yao family is gone. Yao Mengqing has been locked up and is getting tortured by Gu Zheng. He’ll lock me up on the third floor too. He’ll use all the torture tools to torture me as though I’m a rat in the basement! I don’t want to!”
“Heh! I already know that there’s such a place in Longwan Residential!” Gu Yao said with a smile. Huang Lilan’s expression froze.
Gu Yao said, “Gu Zheng is my brother. How could I not know what you know? Everything he’s done is right. The people he punished deserved it!
“The third floor in the underground of Longwan Residential is a place full of dampness, blood, and decay. But so what?”
Huang Lilan slowly looked up at the man in front of her in horror. She did not know that the kind Gu Yao had a vicious side to him. He actually knew about the third floor underground too. He knew that she would be locked in the basement and tortured to death, but he was still unwilling to save her?
Gu Yao glanced at her red and swollen cheek. “I’ll tell Gu Zheng the truth about the car accident. As for how he deals with you, that’s up to him.”
“No!” Huang Lilan shouted in sorrow. If she was blamed for the car accident, then it was very likely that she would suffer inhumane abuse. It was almost impossible for her to survive.
Gu Yao turned around and was about to leave when he suddenly stopped in his tracks. “Maybe Gu Zheng already knows. Good luck!”
After he left, Song Shiyu brought the bodyguards in and dragged Huang Lilan to the third floor in the underground of Longwan Residential. It was dark and humid there, filled with the smell of blood. It was even more terrifying than Maple Garden back then.
Gu Zheng’s green eyes were exceptionally clear in the darkness. He looked around with a deep gaze. This was too similar to Maple Garden back then. It was so dark and humid that it made one unable to breathe.
Qiao Xi was slightly worried. “Do you need me to go with you?”
Back then, Gu Zheng’s alternate personality was born from Huang Lilan’s torture. Now that Huang Lilan had become a prisoner and Gu Zheng was the master of this basement, he controlled Huang Lilan’s life and fate.
Gu Zheng’s entire body emitted killing intent, but when Qiao Xi spoke, all of that suddenly vanished. Then, he turned to the woman beside him and smiled. “It’s alright. I’m very strong.”
