Chapter: 1017

Arousing Kang Ruicheng s Suspicion

Since yesterday, Mu Sijue had been thinking whether Xu Youning would leave any clues if she had noticed that he knew the truth.

Xu Youning glanced at the surveillance camera just now. He wondered if she was hinting that she knew he was looking at her behind the camera.

It was not an unfounded speculation.

He remembered that Xu Youning once sneaked into Kang Ruicheng’s study and was almost caught by him.

Fortunately, Ah Jin ran upstairs to tell Kang Ruicheng that Auston had stopped by, and then Kang Ruicheng went downstairs, which saved Xu Youning from trouble.

Ah Jin said that he had taken a look at the monitor before he went downstairs. If Xu Youning was watching the surveillance camera, she would know he looked at her. He wondered if she understood what he meant.

Mu Sijue wondered if Xu Youning tried to hint to him as Ah Jin had done.

His guess might be correct, but it might just be a coincidence, and he might have read too much into it.

Lost in thought, he stared into space with expressive eyes.

One of his men was driving the car. "Seventh Brother, we’ll be there soon," the man said, noticing his expression.

Mu Sijue looked out of the window. He could calculate the speed from the views moving backward. "Drive faster," he ordered in a deep voice.

"No problem!"

As the man sped up, the views also sped up. They headed for the hospital quickly.

At this time, Xu Youning was in the examination room, followed by Kang Ruicheng instead of the doctor.

Xu Youning was surprised that Kang Ruicheng was allowed to enter the examination room because only patients and medical staff could enter according to the hospital’s regulations. She assumed that he might have reached some agreement with the doctor.

However, it disrupted her plan.

The doctor did nothing unusual in the consulting office but conducted the regular inquiries. There were few hints indicating that the doctors were arranged by Mu Sijue.

But she didn’t give up. She decided to sound out the doctor’s intentions and test if the doctor was arranged by Mu Sijue when she was alone with the doctor.

However, it turned out that she was too optimistic.

Kang Ruicheng was more alert than she had imagined.

Fortunately, she didn’t do anything suspicious in the consulting office but only glanced at the surveillance camera.

If Mu Sijue knew that she would be seeing a doctor in the hospital today, he would definitely keep track of her somehow.

Undoubtedly, it would be the best way to track her through the surveillance camera.

He would know her movements at any time through the cameras even though he did not stay by her side.

If he watched her through the camera, he would meet her eyes when she glanced at it just now.

"Can he notice my hint?" she thought.

Actually, she found out the secret of the surveillance cameras because of Ah Jin.

She sneaked into Kang Ruicheng’s study the other day, but she was almost caught because he came back early. Fortunately, Ah Jin ran up and told him that Auston had come and led him downstairs.

She noticed that Ah Jin glanced at the surveillance camera before going downstairs. At that time, she found it strange but did not realize that Ah Jin was hinting at something.

She wondered if Mu Sijue would realize that she was giving him a hint by glancing at the camera as Ah Jin had done the other day.

"That’s right. Just relax," the doctor said in a soft voice, "Ms. Xu, it’s just an examination. It’s not painful. Please relax."

The doctor’s voice was so soothing that she gradually calmed down and stopped worrying. She wondered if it was a psychological effect.

She was fully aware that there was no point worrying since she had begun the examination.

No matter whether the doctor was arranged by Mu Sijue or not, Kang Ruicheng would know the results of the examinations sooner or later. So, there was nothing else she could do.

It was better for her to face it calmly and play it by ear. She might be lucky enough to buy herself more time.

"Ms. Xu, you’re doing well." The doctor continued to comfort Xu Youning in a low voice. "Let’s start the first examination."

Xu Youning closed her eyes and did everything she was told.

Standing there, Kang Ruicheng stared indifferently at Xu Youning, as she underwent examinations by various machines.

He was not worried that Xu Youning would be in pain because he assumed that Xu Youning was used to it.

Xu Youning became who she was today after several years of hardships in the training camp. He sent her there. He believed that she was now insensitive to pain.

What he cared more about was the result of the examination.

After undergoing several checks, Xu Youning was taken to another examination room.

The doctor told her to lie down. "This is the last examination. You can take a rest after it," the doctor said as he looked at her.

She nodded as she laid down. As the doctor operated the machine, she suddenly realized that it would be a pregnancy test.

She was sure about it because she had done it several times.

She quickly pushed the doctor’s hand down and looked coldly at Kang Ruicheng. "Why do I have to do this?"

Kang Ruicheng didn’t answer her, while the doctor explained in a businesslike tone, "Ms. Xu, you must do it. Your baby’s condition is important to your treatment."

Sneering, she stared at the doctor with a serious look. "Why is it important? I’ve lost my baby."

Glancing at her impassively, the doctor warned her in a low voice, "I am a doctor. I’m the one in charge here."

Silently, Xu Youning slowly released the doctor’s hand.

She didn’t know much about complicated medical knowledge, but she knew that no doctor would explain the question to a patient the way he had done.

Obviously, Kang Ruicheng ordered the doctor to do it. That’s why the doctor was so impolite to her.

"Are these doctors not arranged by Mu Sijue?

"Will the fact that my baby is still alive be exposed?"

Despite being nervous, she had to pretend to be calm.

Kang Ruicheng stood beside her. He would be suspicious even if she showed the slightest bit of nervousness.

She didn’t know the results yet, and it was just an assumption that Kang Ruicheng bribed the doctor, so she must keep calm.

She put her hands aside obediently and lay there calmly with an impassive look on her face.

Kang Ruicheng stood by her side, without saying a word.

He would have wholly trusted Xu Youning if she had not sneaked into his study without his permission.

It was suspicious ultimately, even though she had not been there for a long time, and she didn’t take anything important away from there.

Therefore, he had to reconfirm through the reexaminations that she was not hiding anything from him.

Otherwise, he would never trust her again unless she personally killed Mu Sijue.

The pregnancy test was smooth and quick. It ended in less than 15 minutes. The doctor turned off the machine and looked at Xu Youning kindly. "Well, Mr. Kang, Ms. Xu, you’ll know the results in 30 minutes. Just wait outside."

Both of them left the room. The doctor glanced at Xu Youning from behind and slowly took off his glasses before the door closed.

Kang Ruicheng had offered him some money to find out if Xu Youning was hiding anything. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been so mean to her.

Kang Ruicheng was obviously suspicious of Xu Youning. Therefore, he could only hint that he did it to help Kang Ruicheng by being mean to her.

All he hoped now was Xu Youning would not tell Mu Sijue about what happened today. Otherwise, he would be dead meat.

Xu Youning walked quickly along the corridor, leaving Kang Ruicheng far behind.

"A Ning!" Kang Ruicheng called her in a sullen tone.

Xu Youning stopped and looked back at him with a sneer when she heard his voice. "A dead fetus is important to my treatment? Kang Ruicheng, what a good excuse you’ve made up!"

"A Ning!" Kang Ruicheng shouted sternly with a sullen face, "Don’t lose your temper here!"

"You wanted to see if I was lying, didn’t you?" she said in a sarcastic tone, "Tell me, what else do you suspect me of besides the baby thing?"

"If you’re not lying, how can I suspect you?" he roared while approaching her, "A Ning, you can’t blame me. You’ve been acting so strangely these days."

In other words, it was all her fault that he was suspicious of her.

Xu Youning was speechless.

After a moment, she turned around and walked toward the lounge without saying anything.

She had been careful since she returned to the Kang family. However, Kang Ruicheng still suspected her.

Even if the test result this time did not expose the fact that her child was still alive, he would know everything she had hidden soon.

However, she was too weak to kill Kang Ruicheng now.

So, the only thing she could do was run away and go back to Mu Sijue.

She walked quickly and soon arrived at the lounge. Thinking that Mumu was inside, she took a deep breath before pushing the door open.

Mumu was leaning against the window, looking at something. He turned around when he heard the door opening. It was Xu Youning coming in as he had expected. He threw himself into her arms excitedly. "Is everything done?" he asked.

"Yes." Xu Youning nodded. "It’s done."

"Well," Mumu held her tighter and said in an expectant voice, "Did the doctor say when you would get better?"

She caressed his head. "He won’t tell me until he gets the results of the examinations. I’ll let you know when he tells me, okay?"

Mumu guessed from her voice that she was upset, so he looked at her from head to toe. "Auntie Youning, what’s wrong with you?" he asked.

Xu Youning shook her head. Before she could say anything, Kang Ruicheng came in.

Mumu was a sensitive child and he immediately noticed that Kang Ruicheng’s face was sulky.

Realizing something, he bounced toward Kang Ruicheng immediately and glared at him with his hands on his hips. "Daddy, did you upset Auntie Youning again?"
