Black Lotus - Chapter 55: If Not You, Who Else?
“Give me one. I’m going down too.”
The two entered but did not see anyone on the stairs. Gu Yansheng walked down the stairs and suddenly caught a glimpse of someone’s clothes at the corner. He quickly walked over the corner and saw Wen Niannan who fainted on the ground.
Zhou Yuanfeng also noticed him and knelt to check. They were relieved to see that Wen Niannan was just overwhelmed and fainted.
He looked up at Gu Yansheng who was still in a daze and asked, “Why are you still standing there? Carry him back to his room.”
“I carry him? Why should I?”
“You want me to carry him then? Oh, I dare not. If someone takes a photo of me carrying Wen Niannan and posts it online, aren’t you doing to come after me as well?”
Hearing that his friend was referring to the photo about Tang Shuo and Wen Niannan on the Internet, he angrily glared at Zhou Yuanfeng and pick up the person on the ground.
The person in his arms seemed unexpectedly light. Gu Yansheng was a little surprised that Wen Niannan was so since he knew that Wen Niannan loved Aunt Lan’s cooking.
“Gu Yansheng, what are you standing here for? Carry him upstairs.”
Seeing that he was not moving, Zhou Yuanfeng urged.
Slowly walking out of the basement, they saw Uncle Xu and Aunt Lan waiting beside the door worriedly. As they saw that Wen Niannan was in Gu Yansheng’s arms, they were shocked.
“Oh my! What’s happened? I’m going to call the ambulance.” Scared by Wen Nianna’s lifeless face, Aunt Lan hurried to call.
“There’s no need. He just passed out and needs some rest.”
Gu Yansheng said as he walked up the stairs.
Uncle Xu looked at Gu Yansheng’s back and said, “Master Yuanfeng, what’s happening?”
“Don’t worry, I’ll go up and take a look. Mrs. Lu already found out about this and will be returning the day after tomorrow. I got the rest.” Zhou Yuanfeng sighed and thought to himself, why this man just can’t live along with Niannan…
Gu Yansheng kicked open the door and placed Wen Niannan on the bed. Looking blankly at the unconscious person, his eyes were filled with mixed emotions.
“Aren’t you just not even going to give him a blanket?” Zhou Yuanfeng walked in with a cold expression.
He reached out and pulled the blanket over for Wen Niannan. He suddenly saw the scar on Wen Niannan’s face and the bloodstains on the forehead.
Zhou Yuanfeng’s hand stiffened, and angrily turned around, “Did you hit him again? What are you thinking, Gu Yansheng? He is so weak already and you are still treating him like so? Are you trying to kill him?”
“You weren’t there when it happened. I showed him the photo, and he admitted that it was his fault. I didn’t do anything wrong, I was just a bit angry at that time…”
“Niannan is not like what you think. There must be some misunderstanding here. You shouldn’t lock him in the basement no matter how angry you are. You know that he is scared of the dark and still does this to him?”
Gu Yansheng stood aside angrily. He didn’t know why Zhou Yuanfeng was still speaking for Wen Niannan.
“Zhou Yuanfeng! Don’t forget that you are working in the Gu Family Corp. Don’t you talk to me like that!”
Zhou Yuanfeng stepped forward and stared at him with no intent to back down. “Huh? Gu Yansheng, you think I going to buy your aggressive attitude? I already called your mom. Mrs. Lu will be here in a few days, and I am done sticking up for you in front of your mom. If you do anything else to Niannan, no one will be able to help you in this world.”
