“What’s wrong?” Shen Yu asked.
Qiao Xi did not know what to say either, but she just felt that she could not leave Gu Zheng, so she shook her head. “Forget it, I’m not in the mood now.”
Shen Yu was a little surprised. Little Six liked crowds. As long as he took the initiative to invite her, she would participate in such programs. Could it be that she had already noticed something?
Shen Yu suddenly thought of Gu Zheng’s eyes. Could it be that Xi Xi already knew, so she insisted on staying by Gu Zheng’s side?
“Go.” A cold voice sounded. Gu Zheng took off his jacket and stood at the door with his tall body. His cold eyes landed on Shen Yu.
In the past, when Shen Yu came, although Gu Zheng was never enthusiastic, his eyes were not filled with warning like now. It seemed that he had guessed correctly.
“Hmm?” Qiao Xi was stunned.
Gu Zheng said indifferently, “What show are you going to participate in?”
Shen Yu explained, “A fashion design program. Every celebrity will choose a designer to participate in the competition and show their designs to the audience.”
Gu Zheng nodded and said, “Yes, not bad. Let’s go, then. I’m going to T City too. Let’s go together. We’ll come back together after you’re done filming for the show.”
“What a coincidence,” Shen Yu said meaningfully.
The atmosphere was silent for a few seconds. Suddenly, Gu Zheng looked up at Shen Yu coldly. “Mr. Shen, is there anything else?”
Shen Yu could not help but smile. Gu Zheng was anxious to chase him away!
“President Gu, do you have time? Let’s talk.”
Gu Zheng’s pupils constricted abruptly as he exuded a cold aura. “Alright, let’s go upstairs.”
Qiao Xi watched the two of them leave, her mind filled with question marks. Wasn’t her eldest brother here to inform her of the news? Why was he looking for Gu Zheng to chat with? Could it be that he was going to question him in person?
In the study.
Gu Zheng leaned lazily against the back of the chair, his eyes lowered. His tone was a little distant. “What do you want to say, Mr. Shen?”
“I heard that you had an important meeting. When I came, you were just about to leave. Why did you come back after a few minutes? Are you afraid that the secret will be exposed, so you rushed back?” Shen Yu raised an eyebrow, his eyes filled with ridicule.
Gu Zheng pursed his thin lips tightly.
“You know that I’ve discovered your secret. You’re afraid that I’ll tell Little Six, so you rushed back in a hurry to stop me. Has the poison acted up?”
Gu Zheng was still expressionless, but the emotions in his eyes could not be concealed. This was a sign of anger.
“Your poison has acted up, which means that you and Little Six are no longer connected by blood. The reason for this is that you haven’t taken her blood for a long time. Little Six once told me that every time you detoxified the poison, you did it when she was unconscious. She didn’t see you detoxify the poison with her own eyes.”
Shen Yu smiled. “President Gu, you’re a smart person. You can hide this for a while, but you can’t hide it for the rest of your life. Now, the poison has already acted up, and there are very serious aftereffects. In the past, you would only lose your eyesight in the dark, but now, there’s a possibility of you losing your eyesight even in the daytime.”
Gu Zheng suddenly looked up with a sharp gaze.
“President Gu, don’t be so resentful. I’m the disciple of the divine physician. Although I haven’t studied medicine, I can at least tell that there’s something wrong. You might not have expected me to suddenly visit, so you exposed yourself in front of me. However…”
Shen Yu paused for a moment, then his eyes suddenly lit up. “You’re Gu Zheng. How could you be discovered so easily? I’m guessing you did it on purpose, right?”
Gu Zheng stroked the cup with his long fingers and could not help but smile.
Looking at Gu Zheng’s smile, Shen Yu suddenly felt that he had been tricked by this man. Actually, Gu Zheng knew that he was afraid that Little Six would be sad, so he would not tell her the truth. Gu Zheng was in a hurry to rush back because he wanted to tell him this secret.
After a moment of silence, Gu Zheng said casually, “That’s right, I did it on purpose. Since others will find out sooner or later, why don’t I let you know first? That way, we’ll be on the same boat.”
“You want me to keep it a secret for you?” Shen Yu asked helplessly.
“Of course, I don’t think I need to say anything. Mr. Shen, I know you won’t tell Xi Xi,” Gu Zheng said with a smile. Suddenly, a trace of sorrow flashed past his eyes. “Mr. Shen, you should know that this poison is almost incurable. Otherwise, the divine physician wouldn’t have been helpless back then and watched my mother die. Now, only the descendant of the divine physician can cure this poison. However, this isn’t a good idea because it has already affected Xi Xi.
