Chapter 40 – Taking out the Gu
Chao Xi Group front desk.
“Is Mr. Bai here? We made an appointment to meet at three o’clock in the afternoon,” Zhang Siliang asked.
The front desk lady nodded and said, “Yes, you’re Mr. Zhang, right? Young Master Bai is in his office. He has been waiting for you for a long time.”
Zhang Siliang nodded and said, “Okay.”
Soon after Zhang Siliang arrived in Beijing, he received a call from the Third Young Master Bai.
The Bai family is a big and famous family in the capital. Although Zhang Siliang has some money, he did not expect that the third young master of the Bai family would take the initiative to invite him. Zhang Siliang felt flattered and a little confused.
Zhang Siliang took the elevator and walked into the president’s office.
As soon as Zhang Siliang entered the office, he saw the handsome and dignified Young Master Bai.
Although Bai Yunxi is young, he has already been targeted by many young ladies from big families, and many want to be the third young lady of the Bai family. However, they don’t know if it is because Bai Yunxi is too young, he does not favor anyone.
What surprised Zhang Siliang was that there was another person on the swivel chair next to Bai Yunxi. This person had his back to him, his feet were raised on the bookcase on one side, and he was eating ice cream.
A family like the Bai family pays the most attention to rules. Seeing such a sloppy person in Bai Yunxi’s office, Zhang Siliang was full of puzzlement.
“Third Young Master Bai, are you looking for me?” Zhang Siliang asked nervously.
Bai Yunxi shook his head, smiled, and pointed at the person beside him: “Actually, it wasn’t me who was looking for you, it was he who was looking for you, but I was worried that you wouldn’t be able to come out, so I asked you out.”
“He?” Hearing Bai Yunxi’s words, Zhang Siliang became even more curious.
“It’s me!” Ye Fan, who was sitting on the boss chair, turned around.
Zhang Siliang looked at Ye Fan and quickly recognized him, “You, you are the little brother on the plane.”
When Zhang Siliang was on the plane, he wanted to talk to Ye Fan, but because Yuan Yi was there at the time, he couldn’t ask any questions.
Maybe Yuan Yi also realized something. He has been staring at him very closely in the past few days. He got Ye Fan’s number a few days ago, but he has not found a chance to contact Ye Fan for a long time.
After Bai Yunxi invited him, Yuan Yi confirmed several times that it was the Third Young Master Bai who invited him, and then let him go.
Zhang Siliang never expected that Ye Fan would actually have a relationship with Bai Yunxi.
“Tell me, how much do you know about your own physical condition?” Ye Fan said lazily.
Seeing that Ye Fan and Bai Yunxi had a good relationship, Zhang Siliang’s doubts were immediately dispelled, the people who the Third Young Master Bai valued would not cheat him for money.
When Zhang Siliang heard the words, he immediately said: “Yuan Yi is my secretary and my wife’s classmate. She tried to seduce me back then, so I wanted to dismiss her. Then she pretended to be pitiful and invited my wife and I to have a meal, the result, I was dazed and confused and slept with Yuan Yi!”
“After this meal, things got out of hand. In all honesty, I don’t really have any good feelings for her, but, when I’m around her, I will subconsciously do what she wants.”
“After Yuan Yi and I were found by my wife after drinking, my wife and Yuan Yi fell out, and the two even had a quarrel. As a result, I fumbled and pushed my wife down the stairs, but I really didn’t know what I had done, and when someone told me afterwards, I thought it was impossible.”
“But then, something even weirder happened, I almost killed my son!”
“I told my wife that I might have been possessed and divorced my wife.”
When they divorced, he had a quarrel with Ning Shuang on the surface. In fact, he handed over 70% of his property to their son. He also secretly went to the hospital for sterilization. Yuan Yi always wanted a child. She has found a lot of remedies to eat, but this woman doesn’t know that no matter how many remedies she eats, she will not be pregnant with his child.
“In these years, my wife and I actually have some connection. My wife thinks that I may have been under a spell, so I have found a few celestial masters to check me.”
“Once, I was accidentally found out by Yuan Yi, I became seriously ill! No matter how the doctor checked, they couldn’t find the cause. Later, when my wife left, Yuan Yi came to see me a few times, and I naturally recovered.”
Bai Yunxi listened with interest and said, “What do you think?”
“It shouldn’t be a spell, but the Concentric Gu,” Ye Fan said.
“There are two kinds of concentric Gu, one is Equal Concentric Gu, this kind of Concentric Gu has very few drawbacks, after two people who love each other take it, they can communicate with each other and fight more tacitly, but if one party has an accident, the other party also will be affected to some extent.”
“The other kind, maybe it’s like Mr. Zhang’s Mother and Child Gu. The child gu is born out of the mother gu, and it will always obey the mother gu. The closer the child gu is to the mother gu, the greater the impact on the host. So, Mr. Zhang, you will often lose your mind when you are close to Yuan Yi, but after you leave, you can recover again, right?” Ye Fan asked.
Zhang Siliang nodded brightly and said, “Yes, that’s right.” When he saw his wife fighting with Yuan Yi, he clearly wanted to help his wife, but he pushed his wife down because of this gu.
“If that’s the case, just stay away,” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “No way, the child gu needs nourishment. If it leaves the mother gu for a long time, it will make a fuss, and Mr. Zhang will be uncomfortable.”
Zhang Siliang looked at Ye Fan in amazement, what Ye Fan said was absolutely correct.
Yuan Yi is such a strange woman, Zhang Siliang has of course thought about leaving, but there is an invisible force that forces him to return to Yuan Yi’s side.
“Is it harmless to raise Gu?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said: “You need to pay a bit, the growth of the mother gu needs to draw energy and blood, which will consume the host’s energy and affect the lifespan to a certain extent.” There are many ways to supplement energy and blood, so the impact is relatively small.
“What about child gu? Will it also consume lifespan?” Zhang Siliang asked.
“Yes, but it’s relatively rare. In fact, Mr. Zhang’s Mother and Child Gu is only a half-finished product, and it’s not a real gu. The real Mother and Child Gu, the child gu’s host can’t resist any order of the mother gu’s host. Once betrayed, you will die without a place to be buried, and you will still fall in love with the mother gu’s host in a subtle way. But hey, the real gu parasite is not so easy to cultivate,” Ye Fan said casually.
Zhang Siliang smiled bitterly, faintly hearing Ye Fan’s disdain for the Gu parasite in his body.
“Master, can I still be saved?” Zhang Siliang asked cautiously.
Ye Fan nodded and said: “Of course, you can be saved, otherwise, what should I be calling you here for? But we have to make it clear in advance, if I help you take out the Gu parasite, you are really willing to give me 50 million?”
Zhang Siliang hurriedly said: “Of course.” Although 50 million is a lot, as long as it can solve his physical problems, it is nothing.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Alright then.”
Ye Fan took out a small cauldron and boiled the prepared herbs in one pot.
“What kind of smell is this? It smells so bad!” Bai Yunxi said with a frown.
Ye Fan glanced at Bai Yunxi and said, “Does it smell bad? Gu parasites like this smell the most.”
Ye Fan looked at Zhang Siliang, smiled, and said, “Do you think this smells good?”
Zhang Si nodded and said honestly, “Yes.”
Bai Yunxi looked at Zhang Siliang speechlessly, Zhang Siliang was a little embarrassed by Bai Yunxi’s look.
“The gu parasite in your body likes the smell, so you like it too,” Ye Fan explained.
Zhang Siliang: “…”
“Give me your hand,” Ye Fan said.
Zhang Siliang raised his hand quickly.
“Mr. Zhang, something is moving on your arm!” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan smiled at Bai Yunxi and said, “Gu parasites usually hide, but once they are stimulated, they will come out of their own accord.”
Bai Yunxi smiled and said, “It’s really interesting.”
Zhang Siliang was speechless when he listened to Bai Yunxi and Ye Fan’s conversation. The two seemed to regard him as an interesting toy.
Zhang Siliang was anxious, but he couldn’t afford to offend either of the two people in front of him, and he didn’t dare to say anything more.
The gu parasite on Zhang Siliang’s arm was drilling around, Zhang Siliang’s scalp felt numb when he saw it.
Zhang Siliang knew for a long time that there was something wrong with his body, but when he watched a bump appear on his arm and it kept moving, he still felt a kind of thunderstruck feeling.
“Master, when can you take it out?” Zhang Siliang asked cautiously.
Ye Fan looked at Zhang Siliang and said, “Don’t rush, he smells something he likes, so he becomes very active and wants to come out, but if you rush to get it out, he will understand that this is a trap. It will shrink back, and if this guy hides, it will not be so easy to draw it out again.”
Bai Yunxi said curiously, “Are all gu parasites so smart?”
Ye Fan smiled and said, “All creatures have the instinct to seek advantages and avoid disadvantages, fishing is also like this, right?”
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Yes.”
The smell of the medicine became stronger and stronger, and the gu parasite in Zhang Siliang’s body moved more and more energetically. Ye Fan cut opened Zhang Siliang’s arm, and a blood-red worm ran out and flew into the medicine cauldron on the side. The red worm was as thick as a finger, ten centimeters long, and Zhang Siliang felt nauseated when he saw it.
Zhang Siliang looked at the gu parasite swimming in the medicine cauldron, his scalp tingling.
“It stinks!” Zhang Siliang said.
“When the gu comes out, you will regain your normal sense of smell, so you will find it stinky,” Ye Fan said.
Zhang Siliang: “…”
“Master, with this thing out, I should be fine now, right?” Zhang Siliang asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Well, there’s no problem, don’t worry.”
Zhang Siliang breathed a sigh of relief, and suddenly felt the pressure on his chest disappear.
“Remember to send me the money. If you get caught in the future again, you can call me. If you get caught again next time, because you are a regular customer, I can give you a discount,” Ye Fan said.
Zhang Siliang: “…” Another gu? This kind of terrible thing, once is already enough.
