She finished the Chinese medicine, rested for a while in the clinic before going back to her apartment.
She reached home and retrieved a book in her drawer that she had read halfway previously. Then she went to the balcony.
It was so much cozier and comfortable to stay at home than to endure the bitter winds outside.
Her flu was really getting worse and her head throbbed painfully. She didn’t feel like reading her book anymore.
She placed the book down and went back to her bedroom. She pulled the blanket over her and fell into a deep sleep instantly.
Her phone kept ringing and annoyed her. She stretched her hand to push her phone further away from her and flipped her body over. She pulled the blanket over her head once more.
But her phone wouldn’t stop ringing for a long time. And after a brief interval, it would start ringing again.
Which wretched idiot was calling and had disrupted her sleep!?
Xuxu was extremely annoyed and flung her blanket away irritably. She reached sleepily for her phone on the drawer and with her eyes still shut, she answered the call. “Hello”
Her hoarse and sleepy voice sounded like she was in a daze.
She answered the call just to stop it from ringing. After saying‘hello’,she didn’t respond anymore. Neither did she listen to the person on the other line.
The phone slipped from her hand and fell to the floor.
“Wen Xuxu, do you want to die?”
In her dream, Xuxu could feel a cold hand caressing her burning forehead.
It felt chilly and oddly comfortable.
And the voice in her ear was pleasant that it brought her some comfort.
She stretched her hand to grab the person’s hand tightly and refused to let go. “Mm”
She tossed and turned as she tried to find a cooler spot so that she can sleep comfortably. But no matter how many times she rolled to a new spot, it became warm almost instantly.
She was frustrated and furrowed her eyebrows. She pouted and mumbled, “It’s so hot.”
She tugged at her collar as she complained. She was wearing a shirt and a camisole beneath it.
“Let’s go to the hospital.”
The pleasant voice sounded above her once more and the next moment, she was being carried by someone.
She caught a faint whiff of a familiar scent and that familiarity seemed surreal. She clutched at the person’s collar and whined. “Ah Sheng, I don’t want to go to the hospital. I don’t want to take medicine.”
I want to bear your child, a healthy child.
I don’t want to take medicine anymore.
“Why are you refusing to go to the hospital? Do you know how high your temperature is right now? Do you want to burn yourself to death?”
That familiar voice chided her and Xuxu felt aggrieved. She burrowed further into his embrace and whimpered. “Ah Sheng Ah Sheng”
“Wen Xuxu.” The man’s deep voice sounded furious and it seemed that he was trying badly to suppress his emotions. A pair of deep blazing eyes was staring steadily at the tiny woman in his embrace.
“Wen Xuxu, you have been calling my name unconsciously. Why did you call me?”
Did this prove that she cares about him?
In that case, why? Why did she take contraceptives secretly? Why couldn’t she trust him?
“It’s so bitter.”
He fed her with medicine but she spat it out because it was too bitter.
“Since you don’t want Western medicine, you can only take the bitter Chinese medicine.”
Yan Rusheng glared at the woman lying on his arm and gnashed his teeth.
He glanced at the dark brown medicine and judging by the smell, it must be exceedingly bitter. He hesitated for a moment before making up his mind. He took a mouthful and immediately he pressed his lips against hers and transferred the medicine into her mouth.
After making sure she had swallowed the medicine, he continued to feed her using this method.
