Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 878
[The mastermind, Tang Juncai, fell seriously ill and was hospitalized. He’s now in a vegetative state. The other people involved in the case have been detained. The Tang family might face the death penalty.]
For more than 10 years, the Tang family was involved in a human trafficking business and established a human trafficking den in Li City. Their victims came from all over the country. Such news made one’s heart ache.
Qiao Xi’s tightly furrowed brows eased up. “It’s finally over.”
“Yes, everything is over.”
In the evening, it was snowing outside. The snow seemed to be washing away the sins of this world. Gu Zheng’s voice was cold. “Qiao Xi.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes and smiled sweetly. The next second, she heard him say with a serious expression, “The Tang family has been arrested, and the victims have been found. It’s time for me to talk to you.”
Qiao Xi: “?” What was there to talk about?
The man’s eyes were deep like a bottomless spring. He bent down and firmly locked Qiao Xi in front of his chest. His voice was low and tempting. “Mrs. Gu, don’t you have anything to say to me?”
“Huh? Say… what?” Qiao Xi was uneasy.
Gu Zheng sneered. “Mrs. Gu, why are you pretending to be muddle-headed? You took such a big risk and didn’t tell your husband. If I hadn’t realized, would you have gone to that lion’s den yourself?”
His voice was very soft and slow, but every word was asked in an interrogating tone. If one listened carefully, one would be able to hear the slight fluctuation in his voice.
Qiao Xi hurriedly said, “I had people from Ling Pavilion protecting me, so it was absolutely impossible for anything to happen. Moreover, even without them, I would have the ability to protect myself. I know hypnosis!”
“I can’t allow you to put yourself even in the slightest bit of danger!” Gu Zheng suddenly hugged her waist and pulled her into his embrace. The world spun as the two of them turned around. Qiao Xi’s body was completely pressed against Gu Zheng’s, and she could clearly hear his violent heartbeat.
The man lowered his eyes and looked into her eyes calmly. “Xi Xi, don’t do it again!”
“But Ling Pavilion has many missions for me to complete. If I dodge danger, who’ll do the missions?” Qiao Xi asked. She had benefited from Ling Pavilion, so she naturally had to repay the organization.

Gu Zheng gently stroked Qiao Xi’s beautiful hair, and his voice was hoarse and low. “If you have to go, I’ll accompany you. I’ll protect you by your side. No matter what happens, I won’t let you be in danger. I’ll allow you to participate in the missions, but the prerequisite is that you can’t hide it from me.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes and stared blankly at the man in front of her. Her cheeks were slightly red, and her heart was pounding. Why was this man so charming?!
Dense kisses landed on her lips, urgent and hot. He hugged the woman in his arms tightly like she was the most precious treasure in the world.
Qiao Xi was intoxicated by his kiss and was in a daze. She hurriedly said, “Alright, I won’t hide it from you anymore!”
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and gently kissed her eyes, cheeks, and the corners of her lips. Then, he kissed her exquisite collarbone, leaving a faint red mark.
Their bodies were tightly pressed together. Gu Zheng’s hand moved around Qiao Xi’s waist, causing her to tremble. Suddenly, the phone rang, and Qiao Xi came back to her senses. “Don’t…”
Gu Zheng turned a deaf ear to her and patted her soft and delicate buttocks as if he was punishing her. His voice was hoarse. “Pay attention.”
Qiao Xi lay on his body. After the scorching kiss, she felt the air around her thin out. She struggled to get up, but the man pulled her back. She should have been in control, but in Gu Zheng’s arms, she could not exert any strength at all. She was like a lamb waiting to be slaughtered.
Qiao Xi was just about to speak when the man’s finger landed on her lips and stroked them gently. His eyes were filled with burning love and affection, and his voice was low with a trace of a smile. “Mrs. Gu, why are you so enthusiastic today?! It’s not even night yet. Are you already impatient?”
Qiao Xi: “…” Damn! This bastard was really shameless!
“Let go of me. I want to get up!” Qiao Xi struggled to get up when someone suddenly pushed open the bedroom door. Generally speaking, only Song Shijing and Song Shiyu could come up to the bedroom on the second floor. If the two of them wanted to enter, they would definitely knock first and only come in after getting permission. Who was so bold as to come in without knocking?
Qiao Xi had already lost all her strength from Gu Zheng’s torture and was shocked by the sound of the door opening. She instantly lost her balance and fell into Gu Zheng’s embrace. Then, the two of them raised their eyes at the same time to look at the man at the door.
