But in the very end, the nurse said that the man visited on the eighteenth of every month for three years If Ji Yi wanted to know who he was, it was simple. All she had to do was wait until the eighteenth.
For a month after that day, she counted each day that passed in anticipation. Finally, the eighteenth of the next month came around.
But what a shame. She longed to meet the man the nurse took a whole day to describe, but he never showed up...
With her hopes dashed, she felt downcast and glum.
The nurse could probably tell she truly wanted to discover the identity of the person who visited her every month without fail. Perhaps it was to comfort her, or perhaps the nurse wholeheartedly wanted to help her, but she told Ji Yi that the man showed up when she was unconscious, so he'd definitely show up by her side after she woke up. He probably just didn't come this month because he was held up by some business, but as long as she kept this small piece of jade, she'd be able to find that man. After all, he had the missing, larger piece...
She felt like the nurse made a good point, so she really kept that small piece of jade safe wherever she went.
At the time, she was pretty much completely recovered, so she didn't stick around for the eighteenth of the following month since she was discharged from the hospital.
Afterwards, she always wondered what kind of person the owner of the jade was. However, the world was so big and she knew nothing about him. With just a small piece of jade, there was no way of finding out who the owner was, so she just kept waiting.
Often, there were countless times when she held the piece of jade at night, thinking about how she might never meet the owner of the jade in her lifetime.
Every time, her heart filled with disappointment.
In this world, besides her biological parents, the owner of this jade was the only person who never forgot about her after she got into that accident. This was why she really wanted to know who the owner of the jade was.
But as time went by, she couldn't find any clues about who the owner of the jade was. Just when she thought she'd never find out who the owner was, a piece of jade that fit perfectly with her piece appeared...
At that thought, Ji Yi blinked her sore eyes from staring at the light out the window softly. Then she looked down at the phone in her palms.
There were new message notifications from WeChat.
Ji Yi clicked on it to find two messages from "He Yuguang":
"It must've slipped my mind. I forgot about it."
The piece of jade couldn't have been left from previous guests since the housekeeper didn't find the piece of jade in the bathroom the day before, and it was just her and "He Yuguang" staying in that hotel room. The jade wasn't hers, so it could only be his - this was the undeniable truth. However, after Ji Yi saw "He Yuguang"'s confirmation, her fingers instinctively clutched her phone tightly.
After some time, Ji Yi typed: "Yuguang Ge, have you landed?"
"He Yuguang" sent that message ten minutes ago, so he should be at the airport right now. Some time passed before Ji Yi received a reply: "Mhm, I'm already in the car."
