In that instant, the warm and comforting sensation of having someone taking care of Ji Yi suddenly overwhelmed her, making her sickly self feel miraculously calm.
After a good while, the needle was pulled out of her arm. Then Ji Yi heard the same person speak again, "Remember to have her take the medicine when she wakes up. I have business at the hospital to attend to, so I'm taking off. If there's anything else you need, contact me..."
So the person who's talking is a doctor... thought Ji Yi as she heard the sound of the doctor's voice in her ears again: "... You don't have to see me out. Stay here and take care of her."
Following that, there were the sounds of someone packing things up, footsteps, and the door opening and closing.
The room was far quieter without the doctor there.
The person who fed her water was still gently stroking her hair.
Ji Yi wasn't sure if it was the medicine kicking in or if it was because she was cared for so well, but the pain subsided and she stopped having wild thoughts. She quickly fell asleep.
This time, Ji Yi slept peacefully for a long time.
It was almost noon when she woke up. She stared out the window at the piercing sunshine with squinted eyes for a while, then suddenly snapped out of it.
She and He Yuguang were meant to meet at home, but she fell asleep waiting for him. Then it seemed that she had a fever and relied on someone to take care of her while she was groggy... All of a sudden, Ji Yi's eyes snapped wide open to explore her surroundings.
There were a few packs of medicine, an empty glass, and a thermometer on the bedside table... When Ji Yi got up and removed her duvet, she realized the wounds on her wrists were taken care of again.
So everything that happened last night wasn't an illusion...
Since this is He Yuguang's place, the person who took care of me all night was Yuguang Ge?
As Ji Yi thought this, she got out of bed and walked out of the room.
The living room was completely empty.There was no one there.
He Yuguang isn't at home?
Before the thought settled in Ji Yi's mind, she heard the sound of the hood fan in the kitchen nearby.
She instinctively walked towards the open door to the kitchen and saw a guy standing in front of the sink, busy with something.
Before anything else, she glanced over at the guy's wrist to see that there was nothing there, so she cried, "Yuguang Ge."
The sound of the fan was a little loud. Since he was busy and had his back to her, he probably couldn't hear her.
Ji Yi stood at the door, staring at the guy in a slight daze.
When did Yuguang He learn to cook?
When they were young, they practically saw each other every day. Since he was unwell, his family never allowed him into the kitchen, let alone cook...
