Yan Rusheng’s icy-looking eyes swept past the train officer.
The middle-aged lady originally had her eyes on his face, but the moment she saw him glaring at her, terror struck. She immediately diverted her eyes.
Xuxu’s sleepy voice echoed. It was soft and gentle. Her voice was enough to stir his heart and it made it pound faster.
He turned around, and Xuxu was holding her ticket towards the train officer. She sleepily rubbed her eyes with another hand, looking half-asleep.
It seemed like God had removed the veil that had covered his eyes. Finally, he could see how wonderful and perfect Xuxu was in his eyes. He wasn’t able to stop and extricate himself from feeling like this.
He clenched the bedsheets and resisted an overwhelming urge to embrace her.
“Sir, your ticket.”
Su Yan and the elderly lady had already handed over their tickets. Yan Rusheng was the last one left. The intimidation and shock that the train officer felt earlier haven’t worn off, so she spoke to him rather timidly.
Yan Rusheng remained silent as he passed the ticket from his pocket to the lady.
“Thank you.” She returned his ticket and gratefully thanked him.
The sky was still dark outside. As they were reaching their final destination, all the passengers began switching on the lights and began washing up.
Xuxu got out of bed. She took her toothbrush and toothpaste with her.
She didn’t sleep well during the night, so she used the cold water to pat her puffy eyes.
She brushed her teeth and took a gulp of water to rinse her mouth. Suddenly, she felt an urge to puke.
The train made a sudden bumpy movement. Her stomach began churning and jerking as a result. She threw the cup down, covered her mouth and turned around to enter the toilet. The toilet door was just about to shut.
The person hasn’t locked the door, so she dashed over to pull it open.
A towering figure stood inside, but she didn’t have time to care about him. She bent and faced the toilet bowl and began to puke. ‘Blergh… Blergh…’
She was already feeling nauseated, and the smell of the toilet made it worse. She had emptied all the contents of her stomach into the toilet bowl.
Suddenly, a huge hand gently stroked her back and began patting her.
Xuxu’s body turned rigid and the next second, she heard a familiar voice. “Xuxu.”
A gentle, husky, deep and tender voice.
Xuxu fidgeted and stretched her hand to hold on to the basin. She slowly stood up.
She turned on the tap and cold water gushed out. She scooped some water and splashed it on her face. She already emptied her stomach, but the nauseous sensation still felt horrible.
In that tiny cramped space, they barely stood a step apart.
Yan Rusheng was beside Xuxu, and he could feel that Xuxu was feeling cold all over. He stretched his hand but didn’t dare to touch her.
She didn’t eat yesterday up until that moment. She barely had the strength to stand up. Xuxu used her sleeves to wipe off the water beads on her face. She then slowly turned around.
Yan Rusheng stood tall in her path.
She raised her head and looked at him. “Excuse me.”
Yan Rusheng saw that she was stark white, and it had reminded him of how much she had puked earlier on. He was worried and anxious. “Xuxu, you…”
Xuxu impatiently cut across him. “Yan Rusheng, can you not block my way?”
A crease appeared in between her eyebrows, and she squeezed her way out, past him.
There were people waiting outside the bathroom, but her toothbrush and toothpaste were still inside.
