Good Morning Mister Dragon Book 3 Chapter 619
It was getting windy, and it would probably rain soon. Gu Mian finally managed to make her way to the roadside. She tightened her jacket around herself and walked forward alone.
A few drivers assumed that she was a p.r.o.s.t.i.t.u.t.e and asked her how much she was selling herself for as they drove past her. Gu Mian ignored them and merely quickened her pace.
It started raining. It was drizzling at first, but the rain soon grew a little heavier. A car came to a stop beside Gu Mian. The same car had already driven past her a while ago. The driver saw that Gu Mian was alone and harbored malicious intentions towards her. This was why he made a U-turn, and he was planning to drag Gu Mian into his car.
"Young lady, where are you heading to? Why don't I give you a ride? Come on, follow me into the car!" The man grabbed Gu Mian and shoved her towards the car.
"There's no need for that. My family members will be here for me soon. Let go of me." Gu Mian forcefully pushed him away, but the other party had already made up his mind to drag her into his car and totally ignored what she said.
Gu Mian got nervous. She lowered her body and landed a forceful bite on the other party's wrist. The other party loosened his grip on Gu Mian because of the pain, and she immediately fled. She ran against the direction of the traffic, as she knew that this man would definitely not let her off the hook if she were to run forward.
Gu Mian ran so quickly that one of her shoes slipped off her feet. She paid no attention to it and continued charging forward. The man chased after her for a while, but decided to give up when he saw that she showed no signs of slowing down.
Gu Mian had no idea how long she had been running for. By the time she stopped, she realized that she was actually in front of one of the exits of the expressway. She quickly ran towards the exit. All she wanted was to leave this place as fast as possible.
Gu Mian only realized that one of her shoes were gone after she exited the expressway, but it was not like she could go back to search for it. She found the nearest bus station and boarded the bus.
Gu Mian shivered from the cold as she sat down. She huddled her jacket tightly around herself, but it was totally useless as her body was already drenched. She was chilled to the bone.
Tang Zui's anger only started dissipating bit by bit after he drove for a very long distance, but he was still unable to forgive Gu Mian when he recalled the way she pretended to be innocent. It was only when the rain grew heavier that he gritted his teeth and went back to look for her.
He did not remember where he abandoned her. After all, he was tremendously angry at that time. But after not being able to find her even after searching for her for a long time, Tang Zui started growing anxious.
He whipped out his cell phone to give Gu Mian a call, but no one answered. Suddenly, Tang Zui heard the ringtone of Gu Mian's cell phone and saw a familiar shoe...
At that very moment, Tang Zui felt as if he was struck by lightning. He stopped his car by the roadside and dashed into the rain without regard for anything to pick up the shoe and the cell phone on the road...
Tang Zui had an ominous feeling about this, and his face was deathly pale. His entire body was trembling. He remembered very well that his mother had left a shoe on the balcony the day she jumped to her death...
Tang Zui immediately whipped out his cell phone and gave Si Mancheng a call.
Si Mancheng was eating. He answered the call and walked out of the restaurant. Tang Zui could not even speak properly right now, and Si Mancheng had difficulty understanding what he was trying to convey. In the end, Si Mancheng was only sure of one thing Gu Mian was missing.
"Don't panic first. You finding her shoe doesn't mean that something bad has happened to her. It's possible that she had run for shelter when it started raining and dropped her shoe while doing so. Listen to me and drive out of the expressway first. I'll immediately send some men to look for her." Si Mancheng hung up.
All of Tang Zui's movements were mechanical right now. He held Gu Mian's shoe close against his chest as he returned to his car. He really wanted to beat himself up so badly right now.
By the time Gu Mian returned home, she felt so cold that it was as if she was immersed in a tub of ice. She immediately headed to the bathroom for a warm bath. Only after sitting in the warm water for more than ten minutes did she begin to relax...
At this very moment, she felt that her decision to install a birth control ring was a tremendously good one. 'If I didn't do this, I'm afraid that no matter how many times I get pregnant, none of my babies will ever survive!'
The loud sound of the door being opened shocked Gu Mian. She disregarded the discomfort she was feeling and slipped on a bathrobe. She knew that Tang Zui was back!
