I Never Thought That This Would Happen
"What's wrong with Daddy?" Little Eggshell asked confusedly.
Su Youran wished she had the answer. But, she didn't even know what drug Nangong Quan had been poisoned with.
In the end, the doctors wrote out a detailed report of their findings and contacted the patient's family, "It took us a while to determine what caused the patient's reaction. It seems, he was attacked by a syringe to the neck."
"According to the results of his blood test, the drug in his blood is called 'Lomazen'. It is a new drug developed to paralyze function in the brain. Criminals often use it to achieve their motives. But, the particular drug in your husband's bloodstream appears as though it was modified."
"Although we've tried our best to remove the drug from his system, it was very fast acting and already attacked his brain. He may remain in a coma for a long period of time; it's impossible for us to predict when he will wake up. You need to prepare for the worst. Also, we can't eliminate the possibility of further complications."
After hearing the doctor's analysis, Su Youran held her chest and kneeled on the ground.
For some reason, she had the urge to kill Elder Nangong right there and then.
But, at that time, Little Eggshell asked innocently, "Mommy, will Daddy die?"
As she turned to look at her pitiful little gem, Su Youran couldn't possibly ignore her.
"No, he won't. Nothing will happen to Daddy. Do you believe Mommy?" Su Youran's heart was a mess, but she had to reassure Little Eggshell and take good care of her. After all, she was the only one that Little Eggshell could now rely on.
"Mommy, I'm scared..."
"Don't be scared, Mommy's here," Su Youran stretched out her arms and hugged Little Eggshell as tears fell from here eyes. Apart from doing that, she couldn't think of what else to do.
Soon, Su Youran was given the opportunity visit her husband in the ICU. When she saw him lying unconscious, not moving an inch, Su Youran broke into tears again...
The news caused quite a commotion, so it didn't take long before Tangning and Mo Ting heard about it too.
Tangning never imagined that Elder Nangong would go to such extremes, just because he wanted to take control of the agency. He was so ruthless that he didn't even let go of his own grandson.
"Youran must be in so much pain right now..." Tangning sighed. "And, Nangong Quan..."
"Elder Nangong must have been tempted to drive that syringe into my neck as well, but Hai Rui's security is too strong, so he can't find the opportunity," Mo Ting said.
"I want to visit Youran," Tangning suggested.
"Don't go. If she sees you at a time like this, it will only make her feel worse," Mo Ting said as he ran his hand through Tangning's hair. "You need to remember that Elder Nangong wouldn't have hurt his own grandson if he wasn't trying to seek revenge for the grudge between our two families. We are indirect accomplices to Nangong Quan's suffering, so Su Youran will only feel worse if she sees us."
After hearing Mo Ting's response, Tangning nodded her head.
"I just never thought that this would happen...Never..."
"If he's happy to hurt his own grandson, then we are nothing in comparison. Before he shows us what he has up his sleeves, we need to be extra careful. Remember how you previously said to stop following him? What do you think now?"
Tangning lowered her head. She had indeed underestimated the old man's desire for revenge.
Even though so much time had passed, the hatred in his heart could not be extinguished. But, who was to blame for this?
Even so, Tangning did not think that Elder Mo did anything wrong.
If she was in his position, she may have done exactly the same thing.
"Let's wait and see what tricks the old man wants to play."
After taking control of the agency from his own grandson's hands, the first thing that Elder Nangong did, was announce the delay of 'Parasite's' release. This was the entire motive behind hurting his grandson.
Even though everyone in the agency wanted to complain, no one dared to express their thoughts. Didn't Nangong Quan's fate already serve as enough of a warning?
The old man could even hurt his own grandson. Why would he care about some unrelated bystanders?
Everyone had heard stories about the old man's ruthlessness in the past. Now that they thought about it, he certainly lived up to his reputation.
"I know you guys aren't happy with my decision. But, I will prove to you that my decision to delay the release date is the right thing to do."
These were words that only he believed. After all, everyone in the agency knew what his true motives were.
A drunk man didn't drink because he was interested in the alcohol in his hands.
That night, Su Youran took Little Eggshell home to fetch some clothes. But, Elder Nangong was standing at the front door, waiting for them.
Su Youran buried her head and pretended not to see the old man. Just as she was about to walk past with Little Eggshell, he stopped them, "Just this once. I guarantee it won't ever happen again."
"I don't want to talk to you right now, please leave," So Youran replied coldly. "I don't think a person that's heartless enough to hurt their own grandson could be considered a human."
"Little Eggshell is here, so I don't want to say anything bad. Please leave."
Elder Nangong took a deep breath, turned around and left.
"If one wants to be bad, they should be bad to the end. Sitting on the fence will only make people hate them more."
Elder Nangong did not see how selfish he was, but everyone around him saw it clearly. For his so-called revenge, how many people was he willing to sacrifice before it was enough? Besides, to outsiders, he deserved the suffering he went through!
"Mommy, was it Great-grandfather who hurt Daddy?" Little Eggshell may have been young, but she understood their entire conversation.
"That's why you should no longer acknowledge him as your great-grandfather," Su Youran replied. "Little Eggshell, don't forget that the person who hurt our most loved, was your great-grandfather."
The old man was persistent. He simply wanted to create some drama before 'The Ant Queen 2's' release.
He made a huge sacrifice just so the Mo Family would suffer and he betrayed his own family so he could exact his revenge.
Under these circumstances, Tangning couldn't help but feel anxious.
After all, there were many things that she cared about in this world. If Elder Nangong tried to threaten any one of them, probably, even she wouldn't be able to hold up against him.
Previously, she hadn't truly understood the extent of Elder Nangong's hatred. But now, she had witnessed a person literally do 'whatever it took'.
She really wanted to comfort Su Youran, but just as Mo Ting said, her presence would likely not console her but hurt her even more.
So, there was nothing she could do but remain cautious...
What a cruel old man.. Even animal would not hurt their child
For the first time Ning underestimated her enemy. I hope she gets back to her smart instincts and figure out the wicked man's ulterior motives.
A cruel man remains the same 'til he's old. You can't straighten a bended man when he's old.
