Chapter 23: Chapter 23: The Young Master of the Cheng Family (1)

Translator: ShinoJ

The hurried footsteps stopped. He turned around and looked at Gu Chu.

“Kid, where’s your mother?” His clear voice was very pleasant to the ears, but it was not Gu Chu’s uncle.

Gu Chu raised her small head and shifted her gaze from his slender legs to this unfamiliar handsome face. This young man looked to be about fifteen or sixteen years old. He wore a black coat and his slightly messy black hair covered his forehead. His eyes were as black as ink and had a deterrent and maturity that surpassed his age.

He was an extremely handsome young man.

Unfortunately, Gu Chu did not know him.

The strange thing was that this young man seemed to know Gu Chu and Gu Manxi..

“I... I’m looking for Mommy, and Uncle is looking for her too... Boohoo, I can’t find Mommy...” Gu Chu blinked, and tears instantly appeared in her eyes.

The young man’s face became increasingly gloomy, and he cursed in a low voice, “Damn it!”

No one knew who he was cursing.

At this moment, the lobby manager rushed over in a hurry. Out of breath, he said, “Young Master, Young Master, we’ve already checked it out. Mrs. Zhao booked Room 3019. She has an appointment with Director Li of the Li family today to discuss some business.”

As soon as the lobby manager spoke, Gu Chu instantly knew the identity of this handsome young man.

The Empire Hotel was the property of the Cheng family in the capital.

To be called “Young Master” by the lobby manager of the Empire Hotel, this person should be the only legitimate son of the Cheng family. His name was Cheng Qi. In the original novel, there weren’t many descriptions of this pitiful young master. She only knew that he was deeply involved in the power struggle of the Cheng family and died at a young age at the hands of one of his father’s illegitimate children.

Cheng Qi said, “Take good care of this child. Don’t let her run around.”

The lobby manager wiped the sweat off his forehead and said respectfully, “Don’t worry, Young Master.”

Cheng Qi left Gu Chu behind and ran quickly to Room 3019.

Gu Chu stood rooted to the ground, her big eyes filled with doubt. It seemed that this young master wanted to save Gu Manxi.

However, Cheng Qi and Gu Manxi were completely unrelated. Why was he doing all this?

Why didn’t Gu Chu remember this scene from the original novel? Could it be a hidden plot?

Gu Chu thought about it and ignored the hall manager’s obstruction. She followed Cheng Qi’s footsteps.


Cheng Qi strode toward Room 3019. He wanted to murder somebody now.

He was furious!

He had never expected that Gu Manxi was this naive. She had stupidly gotten into Tang Chunxiu’s car and was brought here for Director Li!

Could it be that after giving birth to a daughter, her IQ had plummeted?

Room 3019 was tightly shut, and the carpet in front of the door was stained with red wine. Cheng Qi’s face was stern as he swiped open the room door with his universal room card. The hotel’s VIP room was extremely luxurious, and a whimper could be heard coming from the luxurious bed.

Gu Manxi still had a little bit of consciousness left. She struggled with all her might and begged for mercy.

However, the man on her body was still moving around ruthlessly, laughing mockingly.

Cheng Qi’s pupils suddenly dilated, and his anger burned fiercely. He rushed over, forcefully pulling the fat middle-aged man off the bed and kicking him away.

Cheng Qi quickly took off his black coat and covered Gu Manxi’s body. He gently held her in his arms, and his voice was surprisingly calm. “Don’t be afraid, Don’t be afraid. Nothing happened.”

Gu Manxi’s body was trembling, and her face was pale. Tears flowed down her face, and she could not cry out loud. 𝓲𝐧𝙣𝓇ℯ𝓪𝐝 c𝚘𝒎

She had never thought that she would encounter such a terrible and dirty thing. Tang Chunxiu used her words to trick her into getting into the car. She said that she was only going to meet her relatives, but she gave her the wine and sent her to this disgusting man’s bed.

Her world instantly collapsed, and everything was pitch black.

“Ouch! Who dares to ruin my day?!” Director Li drank two glasses of wine so he was being extra reckless.
