He Jichen stared out at the empty street in front of him for quite some time before he slowly turned his attention to the road.
There was a woman crouched on the ground with her body curled up under the pale yellow light from the lamppost.
Her face was lowered so he couldn't see her face, but he still recognized her with a single look.
Her shoulders quivered slightly as though she was crying.
He Jichen subconsciously tightened his grip on the steering wheel as he watched the scene before him.
Ji Yi crouched by the side of the road with her head buried between her knees. Her eyebrows were furrowed, and she had one hand pressed against her stomach, with the other tightly clenched into a fist.
She had been fine just now, but for some reason, her stomach suddenly started to hurt out of the blue.
At first, she assumed the faint, sharp pain was just trapped gas, so she didn't think too much of it. Who knew the pain in her stomach would grow as she continued to walk to the entrance of the school? It ended up hurting so much that it became a little difficult to breathe, and her legs were so weak that she couldn't walk any further. All she could do was hold her stomach, sit down, and hope for the pain to gradually disappear.
After about four or five minutes, the pain had dulled quite a bit. With trembling legs, Ji Yi was just about to stand up when suddenly, her stomach was struck again by a sharp pain. This time, the pain was several times more intense than before as though her stomach was cut by a knife. It hurt so much that she let out a grunt, and tears came pouring out. Then, she sat back down on the ground.
Not only did the wave of pain not subside, but it grew more intense. Ji Yi was in so much pain that her body started to tremble. She realized that something wasn't quite right. She wanted to reach her arm out to grab her phone to call for help.
The pain made her fingers tremble like crazy. She used every bit of her strength to drag her bag in front. She was about to pull the zipper when another wave of pain bore into her. Ji Yi was in so much pain that her body swayed, almost causing her to fall to the ground. She steadied herself, held her breath, and remained quietly still for a moment before she gritted her teeth. She reached her fingers over to the zipperbut realized that the pain had exhausted her so much that she couldn't find the strength to pinch the zipper, let alone pull it open.
She felt herself become a little disoriented. She forced herself to hold it together and not faint, but the pain grew increasingly sharp, and her back was completely drenched in sweat.
Every now and then, she heard the whistling of passing cars on the road slowly disappear in the distance.
Just as she felt so much pain that she started to black out, she heard the faint sound of a familiar voice above her head, "Why are you sitting here?"
Ji Yi thought she was just hearing things. She was stunned for a whilebefore she groggily lifted her head.
In front of her was a pair of men's black leather shoes.
Ji Yi furrowed her brows as she tried hard to look up. Just as she caught a glimpse of the man's waist, the pain in her stomach caused her vision to go dark. Her entire body slumped to the ground.
