“What?! Yun Meng Xin and Su’Er were both infected with the Isrock Disease on the same day?” After hearing this from her phone, Li Xiao Xue shot to her feet, a deep frown on her face.

“Super active Isrock Disease? No one else in the Yun family was infected… I see.”

After putting down the phone, Li Xiao Xue’s breathing became quite erratic, and it took her a while to calm herself down. While she was standing in front of her window and looking outside, she was unable to stop frowning. After a while, her gaze suddenly became cold and sharp, and she summoned in a low voice, “Wan Yu.”

The door opened, and Li Wan Yu stood at the entrance. “What is it, miss?”

Li Xiao Xue turned around and said with a heavy expression, “Immediately take my Dassault Falcon 2000 and go to Beijing. Don’t take anyone else. As for where to land and pick them up, I’ll let you know by phone before you get there… leave right now!”

“Ah… yes!” The coldness on Li Xiao Xue’s face and her rushed order caused Li Wan Yu to feel quite shocked, and she didn’t dare to ask any questions. She immediately answered and hurriedly left. Although she was quite young, she had followed Li Xiao Xue since she was young, and flying a plane was one of her compulsory courses.

Not too long after, the sound of the jet’s engines starting could be heard from outside. Li Xiao Xue rested her face on her right hand, and after thinking, she said in a low voice, “Bing Yao, I’ll be going out for a few days, so there’s no need to follow me. Guard this place and monitor everyone who does cleaning or management… if anyone does anything suspicious, notify me immediately!”

……………………………………………….

After bringing Yun Meng Xin away from the Yun family’s residence, Yun Feng’s emotions plummeted into an abyss. Yun Meng Xin contracting the Isrock Disease already caused him immense pain, and the coldness of their relatives caused his heart to feel even colder. He finally clearly understood why Yun Meng Xin had left for so long without coming back.

“Big brother… don’t take me… to Qi Qi’s home… I can’t bring the danger… to the…” Yun Meng Xin said in a weak voice.

“Meng Xin, don’t say anything and just rest up. Don’t think too much and don’t lose hope… now that medicine has developed so much, curing the Isrock Disease is just a matter of time. Maybe even next year… no, next month or even tomorrow they’ll find a cure. As such, you need to stay strong and not worry about anything else.” Hearing Yun Meng Xin’s voice, Yun Feng’s heart hurt so much that it felt as if it was dripping blood, and he tightly gripped the steering wheel. Normally, after someone was infected with the Isrock Disease, it would have a short incubation period before showing any symptoms and slowly devouring the victim’s life. However, the Isrock Disease that Yun Meng Xin had contracted was simply too terrifying. In less than 24 hours, it had devoured half of her lifeforce, making her seem like someone who had been infected for more than 1 year.

He couldn’t help but think that this Isrock Disease was not spread by natural means. The only possibility was that someone had cultivated the Isrock Disease to its most active state, which meant that someone had effectively tried to assassinate Yun Meng Xin! Moreover, they had chosen right when she went back to the Yun family’s residence. However, he was certain that it definitely wasn’t someone apart of the Yun family because this would not benefit the Yun family and doing so would only end up harming it. After all, the Yun family had been hoping to reaching new heights with Yun Meng Xin’s help.

“Ding…”

A soft sound rang out, and Yao Ying quickly pressed her finger against her right ear as she said in a low voice, “What is it… oh? Got it!”

After bringing her hand down from her ear, a strange look appeared on Yao Ying’s face, and she immediately turned and said, “Yun Feng, immediately change directions. We’re going to the Su family’s residence.”

“The Su family’s residence? Why?”

“To take Su’Er to Su Hang… master said that he has something that can cure the Isrock Disease and can help Meng Xin and Su’Er quickly recover!”

Screeeeech!!!

An ear-piercing screeching sound pierced through the street as the car did a 180 degree spin and zoomed off in the opposite direction… if anyone else had told him that they had something that could cure the Isrock Disease, Yun Feng wouldn’t have believed them. However, he knew who this ‘master’ was. He was the only person who Yun Feng would believe no matter what, regardless of what ridiculous things he said.

Just like the Xiao family and Yun family, the Su family was filled with chaos, and the smell of disinfectant filled every corner of the residence. Before, the Su family never refused guests, but today, the Su family’s gates were tightly closed, and there was not a single person paying a visit.

Within the Su family’s inner courtyards, the atmosphere was so heavy that those around felt suffocated.

To the Su family, the Isrock Disease was a forbidden name, and it was a nightmare that the Su family could never get rid of. Decades ago, because of a catastrophe with the Isrock Disease, the Su family’s numbers had dwindled, causing them to give up on business and take up politics. After that catastrophe, the only men left in the previous generation were Su Hong Cheng and Su Yi Cheng, and only Su’Er was left in the current generation. The Su family’s entire future rested on Su’Er’s body, so Su’Er’s safety was of paramount importance to the Su family.

However, none of them expected the demon that had almost killed off the Su family to appear in Su’Er.

Su Hong Cheng leaned against the door, unmoving. The awe-inspiring and strict Mayor of Beijing’s face was waxy yellow, his eyes completely blank, looking as if he had aged decades in half a day. With his status, he had weathered all sorts of storms and was able to remain calm in all of them. The only thing in the world that could affect him like this was Su’Er’s safety…

“Chief, please put on this mask, this is… much too dangerous,” The Su family’s doctor brought over a thick mask and pleaded with Su Hong Cheng. He had already repeated such words more than 10 times, but Su Hong Cheng had not put on the mask, let alone a hazmat suit. His eyes looked as if he had lost his soul. He finally moved and knocked the hand holding the mask away as he said in a hoarse voice, “My daughter’s already like this… what use is there for me to wear a mask… what mask… why wasn’t it me who was infected… why was it my daughter…”

Hot tears flowed down Su Hong Cheng’s face. The doctor stared in shock… he had served the Su family for decades, and this was the first time he had seen this man, who seemed to be made of iron, cry… even when his first wife, Murong Lan, passed away, he only knelt in front of her grave for 3 days and 3 nights until he passed out. However, he did not shed a single tear… because although he was grieved over his wife’s death, he did not despair. But Su’Er… this caused him to feel utter despair. If he lost his daughter, the Su family’s future would be over.

His first wife, Murong Lan, Su’Er’s mother, had also died because of the Isrock Disease. There was also his father, his mother, and his second uncle… all of them had died because of the Isrock Disease. The Isrock Disease catastrophe of that year had unluckily swept through the Su family, but even that time did not bring him as much despair as this time.

Su’Er’s body had always been weak, and after being infected with the abnormally active Isrock Disease, her body was unable to take it at all. After falling unconscious, she still had not woken up. Murong Xiu looked at her through a transparent door, crying so much that she couldn’t see anymore. After hearing the news, Su Yi Cheng dropped everything and immediately rushed back, and he was currently sitting on the cold ground outside. He did not say a single word, and the space within his fingernails was filled of blood.

Suddenly, Su Yi Cheng stood up and savagely leapt towards Su Hong Cheng, smashing his face with a punch, roaring like a beast, “Su Hong Cheng! You bastard! Why did you let Su’Er stay at the Yun family’s place yesterday! You bastard! I’ll goddamn kill you!!”

“Yi Cheng!” Murong Xiu hurriedly rushed over and stood in front of the berserk Su Yi Cheng. Su Hong Cheng had been knocked to the ground, but he did not stand up. Instead, he lay on the ground as he wept, “Hit me! Hit me as hard as you can… even I want to beat myself to death…”

“Yi Cheng! Calm down, this wasn’t Hong Cheng’s fault. No one knew that this would happen… Hong Cheng’s sadder than anyone – Su’Er’s his own daughter,” Murong Xiu said as tears streamed down her face while continuing to block in front of Su Yi Cheng.

Su Yi Cheng’s face was completely twisted, and his heart and body threatened to blow apart from his pain and rage. He waved his hand and screamed before growling with wide eyes, “Yun family… it’s all the Yun family’s fault! I’ll… I’ll flatten the Yun family today!!!”

After saying this, Su Yi Cheng walked off, radiating murderous intent. However, he was stopped by Su Hong Cheng on the ground. Su Hong Cheng lowered his head as he said, “Don’t you think that this whole situation is chaotic enough as it is? The Yun family is also a victim; if you flatten the Yun family, don’t you think that the scum who did this will laugh their heads off?!”

Su Yi Cheng stopped walking and stared ahead of him as he breathed raggedly, his eyes as terrifying as those of a vulture’s. He knew that Su’Er contracting the Isrock Disease could not be blamed on the Yun family because the Yun family’s daughter and Su’Er had both contracted the Isrock Disease. Moreover, the Yun family had also descended into chaos… in the coming period of time, he will disregard everything else and do all he can to find out who was behind this. If Su’Er had contracted the normal Isrock Disease, he would not have paid it much mind. However, the Isrock Disease that Su’Er had been infected with was evidently cultivated artificially. If he could find who was behind this, even if it was the emperor of heaven, he would crush them into ten thousand pieces. Now that the Su family’s only hope was gone, in his despair, he would do anything no matter how crazy it was.

Outside the gates, the screech of a car suddenly stopping sounded out, followed by a massive explosion, which seemed to be the gates being smashed open. Following this, a Lincoln MKT roared as it burst through to where they were, followed by a crowd of guards, who started to point their guns.

The car door opened as Yun Feng jumped out and asked, “Su’Er… Where’s Su’Er?”

Su Yi Cheng was still furious, and seeing Yun Feng, he instantly roared, “What are you doing here?!”

“I came to take Su’Er to a place… there’s someone who can save Su’Er!” Yun Feng said as he breathed unsteadily, completely ignoring all of the guards around him.

“W-What did you say?!” Su Hong Cheng felt as if he had been electrocuted, and he jumped up from the ground, staring at Yun Feng with wide eyes.
