Hearing the sound of checking out next door, Lu Anran took off the stethoscope and attached it to the wall. The delicate fragrance she suddenly smelled when Cheng Zhi kneeled down to propose yesterday was exactly the smell of the perfume she gave to Lu Anna on her birthday last month.
The perfume was formulated by herself. The scent had no dupe either. Lu Anna liked it very much. She often showed it off to others.
Coupled with the hickey on Cheng Zhi’s neck, she guessed at the time that he had a romantically ambiguous relationship with Lu Anna.
She had been following Cheng Zhi secretly since this morning.
She really guessed correctly.
Lu Anran laughed mockingly. It seemed that there had been quite a few scheming foxes lurking around her in the past few years. She must be careful in dealing with them.
It’s just that Cheng Zhi was a weird lover to be able to do so much for Lu Anna.
The only thing she couldn’t figure out was that the ‘car accident’ mentioned by Cheng Zhi didn’t actually affect her.
When she suddenly learned that her father had an accident, she drove to the hospital on a rainy night. Then someone suddenly rushed into her car. Because she was in a hurry to go to the hospital, she called the ambulance for that person and hurried away.
When she went to the police station to turn herself in, she heard the police say that the man did so deliberately to try to scam money out of her and she wasn’t responsible.
Therefore, she always thought that the car accident referred to the scamming attempt, but today, she heard Cheng Zhi say that it was deliberately arranged by Lu Anna in order to frame her.
But since it was to frame her, why didn’t they continue afterwards?
The short vibrating sound of the phone drew her back, and when she clicked on it, she found a few photos from Gu Liangchen.
She smirked in satisfaction and responded with a message.
[Doctor Lu: President Gu is really considerate.]
[Gu Liangchen: Don’t I get a reward?]
[Doctor Lu: I’ll reward you with a question.]
[Gu Liangchen: I’m all ears.]
[Doctor Lu: Do you remember the car accident when someone rushed into my car to scam me more than two years ago?]
[Gu Liangchen: Why are you mentioning this suddenly?]
[Doctor Lu: I suddenly want to know if the guy who tried to scam me is still alive.]
A few minutes passed before he replied.
[Gu Liangchen: I don’t remember.]
Lu Anran froze before realizing that he was answering her last question.
Because her father said that a well-mannered woman wouldn’t roll her eyes deliberately, she sighed instead.
[Doctor Lu: If you don’t remember why ask? It’s a waste of time for a doctor who saves the wounded.]
Seeing that the time was almost up, Lu Anran left the hotel with a bag.
Gu Liangchen was silent for a while, staring at the WeChat message on his phone. He then pressed the internal line. “Jing Cheng, prepare a car and follow me to the city bureau.”
Twenty minutes later, the head of the city bureau greeted them at the door with a sycophantic look and stretched out his right hand. “President Gu, what brings you here?”
Gu Liangchen aloofly shook hands with him. “I happen to be thirsty while passing by your bureau, so I wanted to come and have a cup of tea with Gao Ju.”
As enthusiastic as seeing a long-lost brother, Gao Ju immediately let Gu Liangchen into the office. “I have nothing else, and there’s not enough tea tube. But as long as President Gu is willing to accept it, I will be waiting to serve you at any time.”
Then he ordered someone to make tea.
Gu Liangchen said with a reserved smile, “Gao Ju is too polite. We’re all our own people, so just call me Liangchen.”
Gao Ju was very slick, and he laughed immediately after hearing this. “Although your father-in-law and I belong to the same system, I’m only a small government official, so I really dare not to mention it. But since President Gu said so, I will claim the title.”
His tone then changed as he said, “Liangchen, what brings you here? Did Zhu Ju give you some instructions?”
Gu Liangchen smiled. “No, it’s my little brother who wants to trouble you with something personal.”
