Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Qiao Xi had taken the opportunity to check Xia Mengyan’s body but found nothing. However, she had an inexplicable feeling that there seemed to be a type of poison lingering in Xia Mengyan’s body.
Her intuition had always been very accurate. As a doctor, this was a special ability. She was able to confirm that the Xia family had been poisoned. However, this poison was very mild and would not affect their lives for the time being. However, it was hard to say what would happen to them in the future. Hence, after the Xia family found out that the blood of the divine physician’s successor could detoxify poisons, they started looking everywhere for that person.
Gu Zheng shook his head and said firmly, “The Xia family probably doesn’t know that you’re that person yet. The person who spread the news is indeed up to no good, but…”
He paused for a moment and continued, “But once that person reveals that you’re the descendant of the divine physician, you’ll be equivalent to a blood bank. Many people will target you.”
Qiao Xi had long realized this. Her blood could detoxify poisons. This was a skill and also a calamity. However, her blood could only detoxify one person. She had already helped Gu Zheng detoxify the poison and the two of them were already connected by blood. Her blood was useless to others.
“Everyone hopes to get your blood. If the Xia family or others target you at this time, can that person still be indifferent? If the Xia family attacks first, they’ll undoubtedly be courting death. Before they can succeed, they’ll already be devoured by other forces.
“I’m guessing that everyone is just watching now. No one dares to make the first move as they’re afraid that they’ll become the target of others. This way, you’ll be safer. There’ll be another group of people protecting you.”
Qiao Xi was dumbstruck. Everyone wanted her blood, but only one person could obtain it in the end. If the Xia family really made a move, the others would first eliminate the Xia family. The Xia family probably understood this logic, so they would not rashly make a move.
It was because of human greed that she became the target of protection. However, no one knew that she had already detoxified Gu Zheng’s poison.
Qiao Xi did not notice a trace of abnormality flash past Gu Zheng’s eyes. He cleared his throat and said, “The current situation isn’t very serious yet. They don’t know your identity yet, and the Xia family is only suspicious, so they want to keep you by their side.”
“That makes sense. They want to seize the initiative and keep me by their side. Once they confirm it, they can attack me. At that time, it’ll be too late for others to attack.” Qiao Xi nodded.
Suddenly, Gu Zheng’s gaze turned cold. He stretched out his strong arms and pulled Qiao Xi into his embrace, pressing her onto the sofa. His hot breath sprayed on her neck, making her feel ticklish and slightly nervous.
“You… What are you doing?” Qiao Xi stammered.
Gu Zheng stood up slightly and stared at her with his deep eyes. His tone was gentle, but there was no response. “You can only stay by my side. No one can snatch you from me.”
Qiao Xi’s body trembled uncontrollably. Gu Zheng laughed, and his voice suddenly became gentle. “Mrs. Gu, no matter what happens, you’re not allowed to leave me.”

She looked up and met his gentle eyes. His light brown eyes were filled with love and affection. At that moment, her heart seemed to be surrounded by a warm current as she nodded shyly.
“Okay.” No matter what happened, she would not leave Gu Zheng.
Under the man’s scorching breath, Qiao Xi’s body gradually softened. Her clear eyes were glazed over. She curled up in his embrace like a kitten and said in a soft voice, “Ah Zheng, I’m tired. Can you carry me upstairs?”
The atmosphere was especially ambiguous at this moment. The two of them should return to their room to do something meaningful. Qiao Xi looked at Gu Zheng with a shy expression. Unexpectedly, Gu Zheng slowly stood up and teased, “Mrs. Gu, you’ve gained weight recently. I can’t carry you.”
Qiao Xi: “…” Damn! This bastard actually dared to mock her?
The living room was silent for a long time. Qiao Xi slowly said, “Gu Zheng…”
Gu Zheng looked at her with a smile and waited for her to continue.
Qiao Xi said, “You… Are you looking for a beating?”
Gu Zheng looked indifferent. Mrs. Gu could not beat him anyway.

The next morning at six.
Ring, ring, ring…
Gu Zheng woke up on time, and Qiao Xi opened her sleepy eyes. The sky was slightly dark when she suddenly reacted and roared. “Gu Zheng!”
He turned on the lights in the bedroom and turned around slowly. “Yes?”
Qiao Xi shouted in exasperation, “Why did you set the alarm so early? Don’t you know that I want to sleep?”
