Transmigrating into the Male Supporting Character’s Ex-wife Chapter 72

Chapter 72

Among the noisy crowd, many people were confused, watching and recording videos and posting them on various social networks. It was so chaotic, that the noise almost drowned out the siren of the police cars.

Ruan Jiu Jiu stood aside and watched as the paramedics [1]Paramedics – in the original text, it was stated as 120 Emergency. 120 is the emergency number in China. I changed it into paramedics to fit the sentence. carefully rescued the unconscious Xu Bi Ying and carried her onto a stretcher.

At this moment, a figure quickly passed through the crowd and ran towards Ruan Jiu Jiu.

That figure was Cheng Jun.

Ruan Jiu Jiu stood on the spot and was a little sad. For a while, she didn’t know what she was thinking. When she raised her head, she had crushed into a familiar embrace. She staggered back and took a step back to stand firmly. Then she came back to her senses with a surprised expression: “Cheng Jun?”

Cheng Jun was not as calm and collected, as usual, his breathing was heavy, and his chest was rising and falling sharply. Ruan Jiu Jiu’s cheeks were pressed against his clothes, and through the soft fabric, she could hear the strong beating of his heart. He didn’t say a word, but when he hugged Ruan Jiu Jiu tightly, his arms trembled.

When her fingers touched the clothes on his back, he was surprisingly wet with sweat, and there was steaming heat all over his body. It was obvious that he had run very fast on the way, so he had such a situation.

Ruan Jiu Jiu was strangled and almost couldn’t breathe.

Her eyes turned red, and she felt a little bit of lingering fear from Cheng Jun’s reaction. It was rare that she was hugged tightly by Cheng Jun without resistance.

The noise next to her ears continued and did not stop. The reporters who heard the wind and came wanted to grab the first-hand information to report. Fortunately, the police had enough manpower, and Jiacheng’s staff were also present, which prevented Ruan Jiu Jiu from falling into another public opinion storm.

Ruan Jiu Jiu got into another ambulance. Cheng Jun didn’t say a word the whole time but just held her hands. His fingers were stiff and strong, and Ruan Jiu Jiu felt a bit painful when he held them.

Xu Bi Ying was sent to the ICU for emergency treatment, and Ruan Jiu Jiu had a full body examination, and the results would be available soon.

Fortunately, there was only a slight concussion, and it would not be a problem after taking a rest for a few days.

The wound on her forehead was covered with gauze, with a little stinging sensation, and there were a few drops of blood on her clothes, which made Ruan Jiu Jiu look miserable. She sat on the hospital bed and was silent with Cheng Jun for a long time, before whispering: “I… Actually, there is nothing wrong.”

It was too much to do a full-body examination, and Ruan Jiu Jiu felt bad about wasting money.

Cheng Jun glanced at her, and when his slender eyes stared at Ruan Jiu Jiu, his eyes were dark and heavy, and he looked strangely scary without carelessness, which made Ruan Jiu Jiu suddenly embarrassed, and her arrogance in the face of Cheng Jun instantly disappeared.

‘Okay, Okay, let’s check if you want to check. I’ll just treat it as the year-end physical examination for this year.’

The police acted quickly and immediately retrieved the car records of the two vehicles. With the mentality of dying together, Xu Bi Ying naturally never thought of removing the car recorder. The things exposed in the video this night were enough to teach her a lesson that she will never forget for a lifetime.

A policeman knocked on the door and walked in to take a statement.

Ruan Jiu Jiu truthfully informed the other party of her whereabouts. After the police wrote it down seriously, he frowned and said, “Why is she doing this?”     

Ruan Jiu Jiu asked, “What’s the matter?”

“She stabbed a man before driving away to commit murder, the man had been living with her for many days and is currently resuscitating [2]Resuscitating – revive someone from unconsciousness or apparent death. in another hospital… Most importantly, during the emergency treatment just now, it was found that she was carrying a child in her stomach, but unfortunately, she had a miscarriage, and the father of the child is most likely this man.”

Ruan Jiu Jiu was stunned for a moment and then muttered to herself: “Could it be… Nangong Ao Tian…”

The child’s biological father, it was absolutely impossible to be Gu You.

“Anyway, we will take care of the rest, so please don’t worry.”

“Mr. Cheng, can you come out for a moment?”

Under Ruan Jiu Jiu’s puzzled eyes, Cheng Jun followed the police out the door, and the two stood in the corridor, the police then continued: “The suspect’s family hopes to settle everything out of court, and said that they will do everything they can to remedy the situation. Mr. Cheng, you…”

“No need.” He interrupted the policeman abruptly.

Cheng Jun’s tone was slow, but it made people hear a bit of anger that was hidden behind indifference and rationality and had not been dispelled.

“They’d better not be self-defeating [3]Self-defeating – wanted to be smart; ended up doing something stupid or messing up..”

“Okay, I see. I will convey your words.”

After the police left, there was another deadly silence in the single-room ward. Ruan Jiu Jiu sat for a while, with her head lowered, the hair was scattered on her temples.

Cheng Jun walked into the door and his expression returned to normal. He held Ruan Jiu Jiu’s hand and asked, “Does it still hurt?”

“Ah…it’s okay.”

If it wasn’t for his hand tugging her tightly, Ruan Jiu Jiu would have thought that Cheng Jun had already regained his composure.

Her palms were sweaty and the wet feeling made Ruan Jiu Jiu a little awkward, but at this moment, she had no intention of withdrawing. Instead, she seemed to be comforting Cheng Jun. She was obviously injured, but Cheng Jun reacted more obviously than she did.

“Actually… at that moment, I was very afraid that I would die.”

“…” His gaze turned to her suddenly.

“I thought I couldn’t see you anymore.”

Ruan Jiu Jiu’s slightly awkward and aggrieved confession made Cheng Jun feel a little untimely joy. The long wait finally got a response, how could he be not happy?

Without waiting for Ruan Jiu Jiu’s reaction, he hugged her tightly in his arms. He said softly: “No. It won’t be impossible to see me.”

“Knock, knock, knock!” The knock on the door accompanied by an eager voice jumped in through the door.

“Sister-in-law! Sister-in-law, you’re okay!”

Tu Nan moved very fast and rushed to the hospital after dealing with the turmoil after the accident. Although the driver immediately explained that Ruan Jiu Jiu was only slightly injured, Tu Nan would never forget Cheng Jun’s expression and reaction at that time. He was simply terrified, and the first thing he did after he was done was rush over to visit.

“Sister-in-law!”

Tu Nan pushed open the door recklessly, but what he saw was the boss holding his sister-in-law tightly in his arms. The boss’s death stare made Tu Nan realize that he probably, maybe, came at the wrong time again.

Tu Nan scratched his head awkwardly: “…As long as there is no problem.” 

The atmosphere was broken, and Ruan Jiu Jiu couldn’t continue talking anymore. However, their time was still long, and they were not in a hurry at this moment. Ruan Jiu Jiu called out to Tu Nan and thanked him for coming.

Although Tu Nan was a little reckless, his worries were all because of her safety. It feels good to be thought of.

Ruan Jiu Jiu said very seriously: “Thank you.”

Tu Nan was stunned for a moment, then blushed for the first time in the world, and said embarrassedly: “Why is my sister-in-law so serious all of a sudden, I’m not used to it. It’s good that it’s okay, it’s good that it’s okay.”

Ruan Jiu Jiu rarely saw his thin-skinned appearance, so she couldn’t help laughing.

Tu Nan’s face turned even redder, so he spared no effort in complimenting: “Sister-in-law, you are so good-looking, and you are so good-looking even after breaking your face.”

Ruan Jiu Jiu: “…”

Cheng Jun: “…”

He was usually a dog-like person. When it was time to praise her, his words became sourer and sourer.

Tu Nan realized that the situation was getting worse and worse, he coughed dryly, and quickly changed the subject: “By the way, Fu Zicheng is there for the rest of the matter. You can do what you want to do with this matter, and the murderer won’t be able to escape punishment.”

“Then, thank you so much.”

Just as they were talking, there was another knock on the door, the door was pushed open, and it was Gu You who came.

He came from the company in a hurry, and he had to avoid the paparazzi. His clothes were messy and hurried. He came in with big strides, and by a glance, he first determined Ruan Jiu Jiu’s situation, and after making sure she was okay, he was finally able to relax his nerves.

Gu You smiled wryly, and shame was exposed in his eyes: “I’m sorry, it’s too late to apologize at this point. It was my problem that caused you such big trouble. After this matter is resolved, I will submit my resignation to the personnel department. In my name, I swear that Xu Bi Ying will never have the opportunity to do anything to hurt you again…”

“Please don’t say that.”

Gu You was always habitually taking everything on his own. Seeing that he didn’t even want to work anymore, Ruan Jiu Jiu hurriedly interrupted him: “There are some inexplicable misunderstandings and conflicts between me and Xu Bi Ying, but these things have nothing to do with you, and they have nothing to do with other people too, so please don’t blame yourself .”

Gu You was stunned for a moment, thinking that Ruan Jiu Jiu was comforting him, and he pulled his lips bitterly.

“Nevertheless, it’s my responsibility for her to get to where she is today. I shouldn’t have left her out of anger, which leads her to an irreversible path now.”

Hearing Gu You’s words, Ruan Jiu Jiu’s eyebrows wrinkled tighter and tighter.

“I didn’t expect you to have such an idea.”

“I…”

“Have you instigated her? Have you ever did have a wrong suggestion?” Gu You was about to explain, but Ruan Jiu Jiu rushed to speak again, ” Adults should be prepared to bear the consequences of their own decisions. ‘It’s better to hurt someone if I can’t have the one I like’. Did you instill such values in her? If not, why do you take other people’s responsibility? How good are you?

Gu You was left speechless by Ruan Jiu Jiu’s series of responses.

Ruan Jiu Jiu stood up with a serious expression that had never been seen before, and even with a little bit of hatred. She stared straight at Gu You’s dodging eyes and slowed down: “It is precisely because you always want to take responsibility for her that she has a fluke mentality, making her think that she will have someone to bear the burden behind her. Gu You, we are all adults, everyone is an independent individual, there are too many things that have nothing to do with you, such as now.”

“…” 

The ward was silent.

Gu You stood there dumbfounded, not knowing what to say for a while.

At such a serious moment, Tu Nan couldn’t suppress his heart, and whispered a confession: “Sister-in-law is so handsome!”

Ruan Jiu Jiu: “…”

Gu You blinked his eyes slowly, recalling what Ruan Jiu Jiu said to him carefully. After a long time, he let out a sigh of relief.

“Thank you. Although I may not be able to do it yet…. but I will be responsible for myself.”

“That’s good.” Ruan Jiu Jiu took out the demeanor of a lady boss, “Continue to work tomorrow, otherwise, your bonus will be deducted.”

Gu You laughed along.

“By the way, on Xu Bi Ying’s side—”

Gu You said, “I don’t know, I haven’t had time to go there.” The first thing he did was went to Ruan Jiu Jiu’s ward immediately, making sure that she was fine before he could feel at ease.

Looking at the hands of the two people who had been holding tightly since he entered the ward, Gu You’s eyes flickered a few times. Saying that there was no loss in his heart would be a lie, but he was already adjusting his mentality so that he could hurry up and get over this period of unfulfilled emotion.

At this time, the policeman who had just taken the statement walked in, saw a few more people in the room, he was stunned for a moment, and said, “Ms. Xu is already awake, do you want to go and see her?”

“Then I’ll go over and see Xu Bi Ying.” Gu You said.

“By the way, she also hopes to have Ms. Ruan at the scene when she takes the statement.” 

The policeman’s voice just fell, and several people looked at each other. Ruan Jiu Jiu’s eyes met Cheng Jun’s subconsciously. Cheng Jun held her hand firmly, signaling her to feel at ease.

Ruan Jiu Jiu took her hand back, pursed her lips, and smiled.

“Then I’ll go too.” This can be considered as the end of her bad relationship with Xu Bi Ying.
