Chapter 1943: I Will Avenge You
“Dont worry!” said Gu Ning as she retrieved a bottle of power crystal and handed it to Chen Darong.
“After you take this medicine, you will recover in no time and can be discharged tomorrow.
You will definitely get to go to the auction.”
In reality, he could even get discharged today, but Gu Ning told them he could leave tomorrow so as to make them feel assured.
“Really” Chen Darong looked delighted at the news.
Chen Darong had complete trust in Gu Ning, he simply questioned her as a knee-jerk reaction out of joy.
The moment he heard what Gu Ning said, he took the power crystal from her without hesitation and took them without waiting for her to respond.
“Thanks,” said Chen Darong before he took the medicine.
Even though Chen Darongs wife was a little concerned, she did not stop him as she had faith in Gu Ning as well.
After taking the power crystal, Chen Darong sensed the pain in his head easing.
Two minutes later, most of the pain disappeared.
“My head feels a lot better,” said Chen Darong in amazement.
He initially thought it would take some time for the medicine to take effect, but he shockingly recovered in a matter of minutes.
“R-really” Chen Darongs wife was elated.
“Uh huh,” said Chen Darong.
A few more minutes later, Chen Darong stopped feeling any pain altogether.
He even touched his head to confirm it was okay.
Go have some rest! You can get discharged tomorrow and join me at the auction.
Also, I will seek revenge for you,” said Gu Ning.
“Since I am fine now, theres no need to….” He was very touched by Gu Nings gesture, but he did not want to make trouble for her.
Before Chen Darong could finish his sentence, Gu Ning interrupted him sternly, “If you want me to let off the culprit, dont bother.
Even if you can bear it, I cant.
Hurting my subordinates is as good as giving me a slap in the face.
If I do not seek revenge after this provocation, everyone is going to start thinking I am some pushover!”
Chen Darong did not know what to say.
Although Gu Ning said the culprit was insulting her for moving in on her subordinates, so she had to do something about it, he knew that Gu Ning was doing it for him.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting left before long.
Meanwhile, Xu Jinchen and Zi Beiying had gotten off their flight.
Zi Shaomin sent Mengda and Nan to come along with Zi Beiying.
He could not help feeling worried for her safety even though he was the one who suggested she come, so he sent them to come with her.
After the flight landed, Xu Jinchen turned on his phone while the plane was taxiing to see a text message from Leng Shaoting.
He did not take it to heart when he learned they had to go.
Since Leng Shaoting was busy, he probably could not eat with them, so Xu Jinchen did not bother calling him.
“Shaoting might be busy, but Ning is probably free.
Let me give her a call and ask if she has eaten.
Otherwise, she can join us,” said Zi Beiying as she pulled out her phone and called Gu Ning.
Gu Ning had just gotten into the car when she answered.
“Gu Ning, I am in the capital.
I know Shaoting is busy, but you are probably free, right If you are, lets go eat! I want to give you the reward,” said Zi Beiying.
Gu Ning was somewhat surprised to hear Zi Beiying had come to the capital with Xu Jinchen, but she did not think too much of it and felt this was a great idea.
“My subordinate got injured, so Shaoting and I went to visit him at the hospital.
Im on my way out now,” said Gu Ning before she asked, “What do you want to eat”
“I feel like having some signature roast duck.
Do you have any suggestions” asked Zi Beiying.
Xu Jinchen was born here, but Zi Beiying did not ask him and asked a non-local like Gu Ning.
Was it not a little dumb for Zi Beiying to do this Xu Jinchen looked at her speechlessly, but did not interrupt.
However, Gu Ning happened to know about all the signature food in the capital.
“There is a roast duck restaurant at XX East Street in the eastern district.
Its the most famous roast duck restaurant in the city.
However, since business is brisk, it is hard to get a table at this hour of the day, so we probably cant get a table,” said Gu Ning.
Xu Jinchen can take care of it,” said Leng Shaoting.
He could get a table for them, but it would be better for Xu Jinchen to take care of it if Zi Beiying wanted to try the roast duck.
Gu Ning told Zi Beiying, “Get Jinchen to take care of the table! Shaoting says he can.”
“Sure,” said Zi Beiying before she hung up the phone and turned to say to Xu Jinchen, “She said there is a roast duck restaurant at XX East Street in the eastern district.
Even though its peak hour, Shaoting says you can get us a table.”
Gu Ning had told her that Xu Jinchen could take care of it, but she overheard Leng Shaoting telling Gu Ning the same thing, so she ended up saying Leng Shaoting said so.
How can I call myself a local if I cant get a table” Xu Jinchen promptly felt smug when he heard this.
“Then get us a table! Gu Ning said the duck is really good,” said Zi Beiying.
Before long, Xu Jinchen made a call and got them a table.
Although there were no empty seats at the restaurant, there were private rooms reserved for the owners close friends.
Xu Jinchen and Leng Shaoting happened to be close friends with the roast duck restaurant owner.
Also, Xu Jinchen and Leng Shaoting did him a favor once.
Even though Leng Shaoting and Xu Jinchen only visited occasionally, no matter how crowded the place was, the restaurant owner always had rooms reserved for them.
If Leng Shaoting or Xu Jinchens friends wanted to patronize the restaurant, the restaurant owner would let them use the private room.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting were already in the vicinity, so they arrived in slightly over ten minutes.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting happened to bump into Xu Jinlin at the parking lot.
He had just arrived as well.
“Hey! Its such a coincidence! Is it just you two or are you expecting more friends If you are alone, we can eat together since I only have a couple of friends with me,” said Xu Jinlin.
He was not trying to be polite and genuinely asked Leng Shaoting and Gu Ning to join him for dinner.
Im meeting Jinchen and a friend,” rejected Leng Shaoting.
“Okay then! Which room did you get Ill come by and say hi.
Also, I need to talk to Jinchen about something.” Since Leng Shaoting had turned down Xu Jinlins offer, Xu Jinlin did not insist.
“Sure,” acknowledged Leng Shaoting before he turned to part ways with Xu Jinlin.
After Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting got to the private room, they ordered first.
The restaurant was packed, so some time was needed before the food could get served.
If they ordered now, their food would be ready by the time Xu Jinchen and Zi Beiying got here.
