Ge Junjian had never been frightened like he was today his entire life. Earlier when he had gotten home and heard that Qin Yirou was missing, he did not even change out of his military uniform when he ran out to look for her.
The feeling of searching aimlessly on the streets yet not knowing where the person he wanted to look for had gone to was something Ge Junjian had never felt in his life. It was also the most fearful and impactful he had ever felt—he had even planned to defy the military law and look for Qin Yirou through his authority.
It was during then that Yun Jian called him.
“Mom will be awake soon.” Yun Jian pressed her lips together and went downstairs.
“Mn.” Upon hearing what she said, it was not just Ge Junjian who breathed out in relief. Yun Yi reacted similarly.
Dong Ruan had already started work now, so she did not know what happened, while Si Yi had gone back to An Hun Group with Mo Sen.
What Yun Jian said was extremely relieving. They did not ask her where she found Qin Yirou because they believed that she would definitely be able to take care of the matter appropriately.
Around 8-9pm, Qin Yirou woke up—to everyone circling her bed.
As she peeled her eyes open clearly, she was instantly greeted with the sight of the crowd surrounding her. Since she had just woken up, she jolted, obviously startled from the situation.
“W-why… are all of you here?” Yun Jian helped Qin Yirou up from the bed and the latter asked in surprise with her back resting against the wall.
“We…” Yun Yi had just started but Yun Jian tugged on the hem of his clothes.
“Mom, I found you fainted by the road when I was on my way to the market. It shook all of us,” Yun Jian explained.
She did not plan to tell Qin Yirou the truth and she knew that the woman must be drugged on her way back from the market and passed out on the spot, thus she made up the explanation.
Yun Yi and others paused for a beat when they heard what she said before they swiftly reacted and lied alongside Yun Jian.
Even if Yun Jian did not dish out the truth, the fact that Qin Yirou was drugged to unconsciousness was evidence that something dangerous must have happened to her earlier. It was best if something that dangerous was kept from Qin Yirou herself.
Qin Yirou nodded as well. She did not feel anything when she passed out, so she was not skeptical about it either.
“Mom, have some water to rehydrate first.” Yun Jian passed the glass of water she had prepared earlier to Qin Yirou.
Fortunately, nothing serious happened and ultimately the incident passed without anyone bringing it up. Qin Yirou did still think that she had only fainted out of the blue.
Although Qin Yirou was alright now, Yun Jian and Ge Junjian were coming up with precautionary measures to prevent similar incidents from happening again.
Yun Jian planned to buy both Qin Yirou and Yun Yi a cellphone each for the convenience of communication. Moreover, as long as both of them carried the phones around, Yun Jian could track the particular locations of the phones through computer programs.
As for Ge Junjian, he planned to shuffle some military men and keep an eye on Qin Yirou’s safety when it was necessary.
Yun Jian had gone for her morning workout as usual on a Saturday morning, taking Yun Yi along when she did and meeting Zhang Shaofeng at a bridge nearby.
It was just that, this time, there was someone else tailing after Zhang Shaofeng when they met up.
“Master, I’m here!” Zhang Shaofeng waved at Yun Jian ecstatically.
As Yun Jian looked over, she saw a fatty standing next to Zhang Shaofeng—Zhang Jian.
When Zhang Jian saw Yun Jian, he actually greeted her respectfully, “Hi, grandmaster!”
The first time Yun Jian heard the term of address, she could not help the twitch on the corner of her lips.
