The cell phone just kept ringing, and it was almost sunrise.
The ringing of his phone awakened Yan Rusheng.
The caller ID showed an unfamiliar number. Could something have happened to Xuxu?
A bad hunch first flashed across his mind. He swiftly picked up his phone and answered the call. “Hello.”
He could hear a man’s voice from the other end of the line. “President Yan, Jiayin is kicking up a fuss. We’ve agreed to set off for Country M today, but she’s going through an emotional roller-coaster again, crying and refusing to go.”
It was Secretary Liu.
Yan Rusheng furrowed his eyebrows. “Let her come to the phone.”
“She’s making a scene now.”
Secretary Liu barely finished his sentence when Fang Jiayin’s wails could be heard coming from the other end. “Don’t want, I don’t want to see anyone. I don’t want people to see my face.”
Yan Rusheng didn’t utter another word and hung up the phone. He stroked his eyebrows and started the car engine.
“I don’t want to go. Mother, I want to go home. Bring me home.”
When Yan Rusheng arrived at the corridor of Fang Jiayin’s ward, her heart-wrenching cries penetrated the air.
He walked over and stood at the door.
The ward was overcrowded with Fang Jiayin’s parents, Secretary Liu and his wife, the doctor, and nurses.
The sharp-eyed Secretary Liu was the first to notice Yan Rusheng.
When Yan Rusheng stepped in, Fang Jiayin’s parents shot a hateful glance at him.
But they didn’t dare voice their resentment. They merely gritted their teeth and swallowed their pride.
Yan Rusheng ignored them and looked at Fang Jiayin who was on the bed. He spoke to the rest as he walked over to her. “Please go out first. Let me speak to her in private.”
His cold voice carried a hint of exhaustion.
Fang Jiayin’s parents looked at each other while Secretary Liu shot an intense glance at them.
After taking a look at Fang Jiayin, all of them left the ward, worried.
The door closed after everyone left, and it was only Yan Rusheng and Fang Jiayin who were left in the ward.
Fang Jiayin had slightly calmed down. She buried her head in between her knees, sobbing softly.
Yan Rusheng walked over to the bed and lowered his eyes at her. “Jiayin, if you go overseas to seek treatment for your face, you will recover faster and better.”
“Ah Sheng, look at my face.” Fang Jiayin lifted her head all of a sudden.
Her face was full of soft blisters, which looked even more horrifying after applying the medication.
Even for Yan Rusheng, he was in shock after stealing a glance at it.
Fang Jiayin stretched out both hands, but she didn’t have the courage to feel her face. With tears in her eyes, she choked on her words. “It’s so scary. I don’t want to face people, and I don’t want you to see me in this state.”
After she had finished her sentence, she looked down again.
Yan Rusheng was visibly startled, but he didn’t forget the purpose of his visit. He asked, “There’s still a long road ahead of you. Do you intend to hide yourself from people for the rest of your life?”
He sighed with an apologetic expression on his face. “I’ve let you down.”
Perhaps, if he had let go of his pride sooner and handled his relationship with Xuxu in a proper manner, it wouldn’t have resulted in that situation.
Fang Jiayin shook her head. “No, it has got nothing to do with you.”
As she was saying this, she tightly gripped the bedsheet with both hands which were under the blanket.
It was all because of Wen Xuxu. It’s all the fault of that sl*t. She must have instigated the little brat to hurt her.
“Jiayin, be good and undergo treatment,” Yan Rusheng responded lightly. “I can provide you with financial support which I know that you don’t require. But this is all that I can do for you.”
Pregnant, miscarriage, barren.
The things that he owed her were innumerable, yet he didn’t feel sorry despite his guilt.
But towards Xuxu, even if he knew of her previous pregnancy…
Yan Rusheng seemed to have recalled something and widened his eyes. Xuxu was once pregnant!
