Chapter 207 Murong Family Rules
Murong Yunxi suspected that it was because she had gone through so many bad things, or because of some other reasons, that now it seemed that she was immune to those bad things. She looked at Cui Pengrui calmly. She had already expected that Cui Pengrui would definitely tell some bad news, thus her defending line had been built, waiting for Cui Pengrui to say something.
Cui Pengrui looked at Murong Yunxi who was so calm now and took a deep look at her. It had not been a long time since the first time he saw her but this woman had grown a lot. She was only in her early twenties, but this calm seemed to have already surpassed her current age.
“The result of Gu Yuxuan’s blood test had come out. It is a viral infection. The fever was caused by viral influenza. Now, it is still a respiratory infection. But if it continues to develop like this, it is likely to cause pneumonia, which will be more troublesome at that time.”
Cui Pengrui said and stopped there. Then Murong Yunxi asked with a little doubt, “That’s it? You said that the situation is a bit special now.”
“Yes! This is really not a serious illness, but the problem now is that Gu Yuxuan, she… she is pregnant!”
Murong Yunxi was very astonished at Cui Pengrui’s words. Unexpectedly, Xuanxuan was pregnant and she was pregnant in this situation?! Should this be a piece of good news? Or bad news?
“Pregnant? Xuanxuan is pregnant?”
“Yes! So this is the biggest problem now. For pregnant women, many drugs are not suitable, especially those with special effect. If it continues to deteriorate according to her current situation, it will be more troublesome if it transfers to pneumonia, but it is very likely that continuing medication treatment will have some adverse effects on the fetus.”
Murong Yunxi frowned and at this moment she was silent. This child did come at the wrong time.
After thinking about it, she finally called Murong Xu out.
Murong Xu stood in front of Murong Yunxi in a stern manner. Murong Xu now behaved in a way that when looking at him, Murong Yunxi wanted to go up and give him a few slaps to wake him up! Such awkward Murong Xu made her inexplicably annoyed.
“Murong Xu, can you be like a man? How can you be hit by such a little thing like this? How do you let me relieved and believe that you can take good care of Xuanxuan?”
“Oh, I can’t be with her and I don’t need to care about whether you can feel relieved or not!”
“Murong Xu, you are a big man!”
“I am! I was greatly hurt! We are so in love and we are planning to get married. I thought I could take her hand for a lifetime, then suddenly I was told that we can’t be together. Do you think I can let it go easily? Or do you think that our feelings are so cheap that could be thrown away easily like wastes? Or do you think that our feelings can be turned on and turned off easily like tap water? Who can do it?”
“Xu, you know what I mean! We are so sad now because of your situations and we don’t want this to happen either. But Uncle Gu has his reasons. If it was not because of that reason, he was more desirable than any other people to see Xuanxuan get happy!”
“Okay, then tell me what is that reason that you have to break us apart? Speak it out! If you can make me convinced, I would definitely turn around and leave without complaints!”
Murong Yunxi glared at Murong Xu, the feeling that the words were on the tip of the tongue but could not be said was just quite annoying, making people want to scratch the wall!
Murong Xu waited but didn’t receive answers from Murong Yunxi. He then sneered and said with ridicule and disdain, “You can’t say it!”
“Now these are not the most important things. The most important thing now is… Xuanxuan’s pregnant. A lot of drugs couldn’t be taken now. We have to help her to overcome this disease with her own resistance. If it causes pneumonia, the consequences would be very serious. So now that you are very important to Xuanxuan, you have to make every effort to make her strong first.”
Murong Yunxi said these in a very fast way. She finished all the words in one breath and did not give Murong Xu the time to think over and digest the information.
Murong Xu looked at Murong Yunxi in a daze as if he was a doll. He didn’t even move his eyes and the signs of breathing couldn’t be detected.
Murong Yunxi was unusually calm and placid. She said, “So now, what should be done? I don’t think you need me to tell you!” Give you five minutes, adjust yourself and cheer up.”
After Murong Yunxi finished speaking, she crossed Murong Xu and went directly to Gu Yuxuan’s room.
Cui Pengrui had been trying his best to cool the body for Gu Yuxuan in a physical way but it seemed that the result was not obvious.
Murong Yunxi stepped forward and picked up the towel to continue to wipe Gu Yuxuan’s body.
Murong Xu then walked into the room and took the towel from the hand of Murong Yunxi and said, “Let me do it!”
Murong Yunxi turned to look at Murong Xu, and her eyes were extremely cold. She said, “Five minutes haven’t arrived yet!”
Murong Yunxi handed the towel to Murong Xu and then stood up. She said, “I still have something to do. I will hand her over to you first. Call me if something goes wrong! Dr. Cui will stay and he will not leave until Xuanxuan is completely okay!”
Murong Xu nodded and said, “Do not worry! I will let her be fine!”
Murong Yunxi gave some more orders to Cui Pengrui before leaving Gu Family. However, instead of going back home, she went directly to the company of Murong Ye.
When Murong Yunxi appeared in Murong Ye’s office, Murong Ye was slightly astonished. He asked, “Hey, how come you want to come to my company today?”
Murong Yunxi smiled softly and handed a lunchbox and some fruits. She said, “Just take care of my old brother!”
Then Murong Ye’s mouth corners curved and he got up and took the lunchbox, brought by Murong Yunxi, and went to the coffee table.
“Have you had lunch?”
“Of course not. I’ll eat with you! I am afraid that you are too lonely to eat alone!”
“Haha, having a sister is really a good thing!”
“Of course. Having such a smart and beautiful sister, you should be even happier!”
“Yes, very happy! I am overwhelmed by happiness! I am content enough to have you in my life!”
“I don’t agree. I am still waiting for a sister-in-law. When the future sister-in-law heard this, she must be jealous!”
“Then I would not have a wife for a lifetime!”
“Please don’t. I can’t afford such a big burden. When Murong Family is over, with no successors, dad will hate me. I don’t want to take this blame!”
“You have already left a future generation for Murong Family, why should I have my child? Besides, our father is not a patriarchal person. He pays more attention to girls than boys!”
“Oh, because I have been away for so many years, Dad is so good to me now. If I was with him from an early age, I promised he would have given you all the love and cherished you so much.”
“Then you are treating father unjustly. Our father has been chanting with me since I was a child that the most hopeful thing for him and his mother was to have a daughter, a beautiful daughter who looked like mother. So after giving birth to me, they prepared to have another child again. But who knows, when you were born, we hadn’t seen you, you…”
Murong Yunxi saw a deep sadness in the facial expression of Murong Ye. The sadness and Murong Ye seemed not to be matched.
“Well, brother, let’s have lunch quickly!” It will be cold in a while!”
After saying that Murong Yunxi handed a pair of chopsticks to Murong Ye. She smiled and said, “Right, brother, can we spend another holiday together after celebrating the New Year?”
“Of course, where do you want to go? Let me arrange!”
“I haven’t thought over it. I just suddenly thought of it!”
“Well, let me know at any time if you decide where you want to go!”
The two began to eat. After the meal, Murong Yunxi put down the tableware and looked up to Murong Ye.
“Brother, I want to ask you something.”
“Does Second Uncle have a mistress?”
Murong Ye looked up at Murong Yunxi and asked in surprise, “How did you know?”
“Is it true or not?”
“Well, there is one, but others don’t know about it. How do you know that?”
“Others don’t know? Why? After so many years, he has kept this secret so well?”
“There is a rule in the rules of Murong Family that both men and women must be loyal to marriage. Unless they are divorced or widowed, or they can’t have other lovers.”
“Then why Second Uncle still has another lover?”
“So he hid the woman in the United States.”
“You mean that he let the woman stay in the United States and didn’t allow her to return to the country because the woman can’t be known by other people?”
“Yes, if this thing spreads out, Second Uncle will be driven out of the Murong Family.”
“So serious! Yes, this is a rule that is absolutely not allowed to be violated in the Murong Family!”
“The Murong Family is really strange to have such demands. Generally, the rich will have mistresses and wives, more than ten or eight. I didn’t expect that the Murong Family forbid their family members to have mistresses.”
“It was because, my father once told me that, an ancestor of Murong Family, unclear about how many generations before, married a lot of mistresses at that time. His wife accepted everything silently, but she was seriously ill because of the sorrows in her heart. Later, he was set up and faced with the punishment of being ransacked and beheaded. When his mistresses heard that he was going to be ransacked and beheaded, they thought that it would not be the end of the family and if his head was cut off, they would have no one to rely on. Not to mention after being ransacked, they would have nothing at all. Therefore, those mistresses took the opportunities to find ways to escape from the Murong Family. They even forced him to give them some benefits before leaving. The ancestor was very disappointed since he usually treated them well. Now, they were in trouble and he didn’t expect that one by one, they were thinking about taking advantage of him and then escaping. All the mistresses left and finally, only his wife stayed. He asked her, ‘They all ran. Why didn’t you go!’ His wife said, ‘Since I have married you in this life, I will be your woman and after death, I will be your ghost. Even if you are beheaded, I will follow you.’ The ancestor was very moved after listening to it. Later, his wife not only did not run away, but asked her own family to help. Her family did find a solution to help the ancestor to elute the suspect. After all these settled, his mistresses ran back. But he broke up with all the mistresses.”
