Chapter 973 – Hospitalized
“Hey, Meixiu! Sorry for bothering you, but can I speak with my brother? I wanted to wait until tomorrow before I called, but I just cannot wait any longer!” Yu Rou said.
“You sound like you’re in a hurry. Did something happen?” Meixiu asked.
“Did you not see the news? Something horrible is happening in my city! I could be dead tomorrow at this rate!”
Of course, Yu Rou was talking about the unknown weapon of mass destruction that has terrorized her city.
“Ah, I know what you’re talking about. However, I wouldn’t worry too much if I were you.” Meixiu said.
“Huh? Why would you say that?”
“If this person really wanted to harm the city, they would’ve destroyed the city already.”
“I just can’t help but worry when everyone around me is panicking.” Yu Rou sighed.
“Anyways, you wanted to speak with Yuan, right? I’m sorry, but that’s not possible right now.” Meixiu said a moment later.
“Huh? Why not?”
“Well… To tell you the truth, he told me to not tell you since he doesn’t want to worry you, but since it’s your birthday tomorrow and the truth will eventually be known… Yuan is currently hospitalized.”
“HE’S WHAT?!?!” Yu Rou screamed after hearing this unexpected news.
“What happened to him?! Is he okay?!”
“He got injured during training. It’s only a few broken bones, so there’s no need to worry.”
“That sounds horrible! A few broken bones?! That’s very serious! What if he cripples himself again?! He’s just got his body back!” Yu Rou exclaimed.
“The doctors said that he’ll make a full recovery in a few days.” Although Meixiu felt bad about lying to Yu Rou like this, she couldn’t let Yuan’s hard work go to waste.
“Haaa…” Yu Rou suddenly sighed through the phone.
“I was really looking forward to speaking with Brother on my birthday…”
“Don’t worry, I will make sure that you’ll still get to speak with him tomorrow.” Meixiu said.
“Thank you, Meixiu, but don’t force him if he isn’t in the condition.”
“Anyways, I am going to sleep now. I have something important that I must attend tomorrow morning.”
“Goodnight.” Meixiu said to her before hanging up.
“Is everything okay?” Xia Jingyi asked Yu Rou after she put down her phone.
“That stupid brother of mine got himself hospitalized right before my birthday! Can you believe it?!” Yu Rou complained.
Xia Jingyi covered her mouth and gasped, “Oh my… I hope he’s okay.”
“He broke some bones, but he’ll make a full recovery.”
“Brother is such an idiot. He should treat his body with more care and respect, especially considering how he’s already been crippled once before. I’m going to give him a piece of my mind when I go on vacation next month!”
“Anyways, let’s go to sleep. We have an important meeting tomorrow according to the Seniors.”
“All right. Goodnight, Yu Rou.”
The following morning, after their morning routine, Yu Rou and Xia Jingyi gathered outside the faction.
“Good morning, Elder Yin.” Yu Rou and Xia Jingyi greeted the old woman that was there before them.
“Are you two ready to leave?” Elder Yin asked them.
“Yes, we are.”
Once they were in the car, Yu Rou asked, “Elder Yin, where are you taking us today?”
“To tell you the truth, I also have no idea. White Lotus said she was in trouble and needed some extra hands, so we picked a couple of disciples to help her.” Elder Yin shrugged.
Yu Rou raised her eyebrows.
She looked around the car and asked, “Where are the others?”
“They went ahead since the seats were filled.”
Yu Rou sighed inwardly, ‘Why do I have to do such chores on my birthday? It’s even my day off! Can this day get any worse?’
Meanwhile, Yuan and the others prepared for the surprise.
The concert was to be performed in the city square, one of the busiest places in the city.
“Which idiot decided to do a concert at such a time? Aren’t they aware of the danger in this city?”
Most of the streets were empty because everyone decided to stay at home for the next few days due to the recent commotion.
However, the roads were packed with cars because people were trying to leave the city.
With that being said, there was a crowd of people in front of the stage, and most of these people were sent by the Cultivators’ Association.
In fact, even the Chairman himself was present.
Even though Yuan had only asked him to prepare the concert, Chairman Lee decided to participate in it as well.
The rest of the people in the crowd were people from the Bai Family, led by Bai Mengyao himself.
After hearing about the concert, Bai Mengyao immediately flew to this city. Of course, he had other intentions.
“Yuan, can I take a moment of your time to introduce my father to you? He came all the way here from another city to meet you.” White Lotus asked him after they arrived at the city square.
“Sure.” He agreed.
Sometime later, Yuan met with White Lotus’ father, Bai Mengyao.
“It’s an honor to finally meet the famous Player Yuan. I am Bai Mengyao, White Lotus’ father.” Bai Mengyao extended his hand for a handshake.
“Just call me Yuan.” He accepted the handshake.
“After hearing from my daughter that you’d saved her life, I have been dying to repay the favor. Please, if you need anything, just let me know.” Bai Mengyao shook his hands vigorously.
Yuan smiled and said, “Don’t even mention it. I am the one who owes White Lotus, who has been a great assistance and friend for the last two days.”
“That’s great to hear, but my offer will remain. If you ever have troubles, you can contact me or my daughter. We may not be the strongest family in the Legacy Ranking, but we’re up there.”
After chatting with White Lotus’ father for some time, Chairman Lee approached him and started another conversation.
When the crowd there noticed how respectful Chairman Lee and Bai Mengyao were acting towards Yuan, they became interested in his identity.
Of course, besides some people there, the majority of people in the crowd were unaware of Yuan’s true identity.
