“Huh? But I’m in Russia . Even if I fly back right now, it won’t do any good . ” When Gu Nianzhi heard this, she felt as if a bucket of ice water had been poured over her, and she felt cold from head to toe .
“You’re in Russia? ” He Chengjian also froze for a moment . He started to get anxious and his face darkened . “Why are you in Russia? Weren’t you with Zhichu?”
But now wasn’t the time to blame her .
He Chengjian’s mind raced and he immediately asked, “Then can you help find someone to send Zhichu to the hospital? Find that doctor who treated you . I remember that Zhichu said…”
Gu Nianzhi immediately thought of Chen Lie . In her moment of desperation, she didn’t contemplate why He Chengjian insisted that the doctor who had treated her save He Zhichu . She simply felt that his idea was good .
He Zhichu was a cautious person and paid attention to his privacy . Chen Lie was tight-lipped and doesn’t easily divulge secrets .
She quickly said, “Okay, I’ll call Dr . Chen right away . Please wait a moment . ” She then started dialing Chen Lie’s cell phone number .
But even after waiting a long time, she couldn’t get the call through .
Thinking back to what Vladimir had said earlier about all signals being blocked, she felt that something wasn’t right .
She switched back to He Chengjian’s number and found that he was still on the line . The call hadn’t been hung up yet .
“Mr . He, I can’t get through . May I ask how you…”
Before Gu Nianzhi could finish asking, He Chengjian seemed to understand the source of her confusion . He immediately said, “I’ll connect you . You dial first . ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
Although she was still baffled, she dialed Chen Lie’s number for He Zhichu’s sake .
After a while, Chen Lie picked up the call . Gu Nianzhi sighed a little .
“Huh? Nianzhi? Why are you calling me at such a time?”
Chen Lie looked at his watch . It was midnight .
Gu Nianzhi hadn’t thought about jet lag before that moment, so she said sheepishly, “Sorry to bother you, Brother Chen . It’s like this . I just found out that Professor He is suffering a medical emergency . I heard that he’s unconscious . Can you immediately go to the academic building at B University and take him to the hospital for treatment?”
Chen Lie was a doctor who cared about his parents . He immediately asked, “Is it serious? Should we send an ambulance?”
Gu Nianzhi nodded . “Yes, but I don’t know exactly how serious it is . Hoping that I could save him, Professor He’s father just called me . ” She then told Chen Lie the address of Professor He Zhichu’s building and the password to open the door .
She used to frequent He Zhichu’s suite, and she was hoping that He Zhichu’s password hadn’t changed .
Chen Lie immediately called his medical team and rode the ambulance to the professor’s building at lightning speed .
Because it was an ambulance and it was late at night in the imperial capital, their journey was unimpeded . From the Special Operations Forces headquarters, it only took them 15 minutes to arrive at B University’s Academic Building .
However, for Gu Nianzhi and He Chengjian, it was the longest 15 minutes .
Gu Nianzhi had been holding her phone the entire time, and didn’t even notice that Vladimir and the driver had gotten there .
The little puppy Corgi looked at the bottle in the driver’s hand and wailed . It kept trying to reach for it with its short legs .
The driver reached out with his large, fan-like hand and pulled Corgi out of Gu Nianzhi’s arms . She hadn’t noticed at all .
Her attention was completely focused on the phone call .
When Vladimir saw this, he stood guard in front of the curtain in the side hall without letting anyone in .
Fifteen minutes later, Chen Lie’s voice sounded from the phone .
“Professor He? Professor He?” He opened He Zhichu’s door with the password Gu Nianzhi had given him . He looked around and found him lying on the floor of the dining room . His teeth were tightly gritted as he laid there unconscious .
He immediately went for a routine check .
Chen Lie noticed that his heartbeat was getting weaker and weaker . Without hesitation, Chen Lie took out a device and started performing CPR strongly on He Zhichu .
If Chen Lie had come a minute later, He Zhichu would have suffered irreversible damage to his brain because his heart had stopped beating .
At that time, even if he was saved, he would still become demented .
To the prideful He Zhichu, that fate would be worse than death .
As time passed, Chen Lie’s superb medical skills, advanced equipment, and timely treatment finally ressurected He Zhichu .
He Zhichu’s heartbeat gradually returned to normal, and he soon opened his eyes .
Chen Lie breathed a huge sigh of relief . He ordered someone to lift He Zhichu up and said, “Professor He, you fainted moments before . Let’s go to the hospital and have a thorough check-up . ”
He Zhichu shook his head . His voice sounded as cold and mellow as usual, even though he was still a little weak .
He said, “There’s no need . I’ll go to bed and lie down for a while . I’ll be fine after taking a nap . ”
Gu Nianzhi and He Chengjian both breathed a sigh of relief when they heard his words .
“Brother Chen, let me talk to Professor He . ” Gu Nianzhi anxiously wanted to persuade He Zhichu to go to the hospital .
He had to see a doctor if he was ill . He shouldn’t try to avoid the doctor .
Chen Lie had been talking to Gu Nianzhi through his Bluetooth headset the entire time .
Upon hearing this, he pulled out his phone and handed it to He Zhichu . “Professor He, it’s all thanks to Nianzhi today . She called me to rescue you . ”
He Zhichu snapped back to reality and remembered what had happened before he fainted . He had even seen his father before he lost consciousness, so why was Gu Nianzhi calling?
Gu Nianzhi was in Moscow, Russia…
He Zhichu put the phone to his ear and heard Gu Nianzhi’s anxious voice . “Professor He, you can go to the hospital with brother Chen . If you don’t want to go to a normal hospital, you can go to brother Chen’s place . ”
Professor He had a tender look in his eyes .
Perhaps it was because sick people were usually in a fragile state, but his front had cracked a little .
He Zhichu said softly, “Actually, I feel quite fine after waking up . That was just an accident . ”
“Of course ilnesses are accidents, does that make it normal?” Gu Nianzhi grew impatient . “You should go to the hospital quickly . It wasn’t easy for me to find someone to rescue you . Don’t make me regret rescuing you . ”
He Zhichu couldn’t help but laugh . After a while, he replied gently, “Yes, I’ll go to the hospital with Chen Lie . ” He then said, “Don’t worry, and enjoy your time in Moscow . I’ll call you tomorrow . ”
Gu Nianzhi nodded . “If you don’t call, I’ll call you back . ”
Chen Lie ordered a stretcher to be brought over, and He Zhichu was placed on it .
“Nianzhi, let’s get in the car . ” Chen Lie continued to talk to Gu Nianzhi . He wanted to tease her about her grand engagement with Huo Shaoheng, but realized that the phone call couldn’t connect anymore .
“Huh! This chick is so quick to burn bridges!” Chen Lie pouted and dialed Gu Nianzhi’s number again . The caller ID showed “the number you have dialed is not in service” .
Chen Lie: ” … ”
Gu Nianzhi also realized that her phone had been disconnected . She dialed back again, but just like before, she couldn’t get through .
She dialed He Chengjian’s number again, only to find that his phone had also been disconnected .
She dialed again, but again, she couldn’t get through .
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
At this moment, Vladimir walked over and looked at Gu Nianzhi in confusion . “You were on the phone just now?”
“Yes . ” Trying to check her phone records with He Chengjian, Gu Nianzhi repeatedly pressed the numbers on the phone . “A friend of mine had been critically ill and I just found a doctor to save him . ”
“Oh . ” The middle-aged driver hugged the short-legged little Corgi with one hand and fed it goat’s milk with the other . He asked in confusion, “… But how did you manage to make the call?”
They all knew that the signal was blocked here today, so they would have to use a landline to make a call .
Gu Nianzhi spread her hands out helplessly and smiled . “I don’t know either . All of a sudden, I could make phone calls again . Maybe your shielding technology isn’t good enough, or maybe my friend just has good luck . ”
This explanation wasn’t impossible, but it was too much of a coincidence .
Vladimir suspected that the Huaxia Empire’s special operations forces had some special method to bypass the signal shielding .
The KGB also had this technology, but only a few people at the highest level could use it .
This was because the phone needed to do this was specially made, and a team needed to work together to make the phone bypass the signal blocking .
Gu Nianzhi wasn’t a member of the special operations forces, so how would she know how to use it?
However, when he remembered that she had just gotten engaged to Huo Shaoheng, he understood .
She was the fiancee of the commander-in-chief of the special forces, so it wasn’t that much of a surprise that she used such a method .
Vladimir realized the motive behind Gu Nianzhi’s actions and smiled . “Your friend really has good luck . He should go buy lottery tickets now . ”
“He doesn’t need to buy lottery tickets . He already has plenty of money . ” Gu Nianzhi smiled and winked . She took the little Corgi puppy and bottle from the driver, then continued to feed it .
When Huo Shaoheng opened the curtain and walked in, he saw that Gu Nianzhi was holding something in her arms . She was holding the bottle with her other hand and feeding it like a baby .
Her expression was focused and her posture was gentle . Huo Shaoheng couldn’t help imagining that it was their baby . .
He smiled and walked over cheerfully . When he saw that it was only a puppy in Gu Nianzhi’s arms, he frowned disdainfully .
“Where did the puppy come from? Is it a Corgi? ” Huo Shaoheng immediately saw its short, iconic legs .
“Yes, it was a gift from someone . Isn’t it adorable?” Gu Nianzhi knew that He Zhichu had been rescued so she was in a great mood . She raised the Little Corgi to show it to Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng: “… ”
