She walked with hasty steps.
Jiang Qinglian got flustered and panicked. “Slow down. She’s no longer a child. Since the doctor already instructed her, she ought to know her limits right?”
When Xuxu reached the staircase landing, she turned back and smiled at Jiang Qinglian.
First Aunt had no idea about Su Yue’s condition, she would naturally think there was nothing wrong with her. Even if it happened to someone else, she would still chide the person in the same manner. After all, she’s turning 18 years old soon.
Jiang Qinglian didn’t utter another word. She walked towards the staircase, and passing by Xuxu, she commented, “Check with Aunt Zhang if she has the keys.”
Her tone sounded nonchalantly cold.
But in the way she held herself, Xuxu already thought she was worthy of great admiration. She smiled and looked at Jiang Qinglian’s from the back. “I was just about to ask Aunt Zhang for the keys.”
While Aunt Zhang was outside, she heard the commotion inside the house. She rushed in with urgency.
All the spare keys in the house were under the elderly lady’s charge.
After retrieving the spare key to Su Yue’s bathroom door, Xuxu went back to Su Yue’s room.
When she entered, she could still hear the sound of gushing water coming from the bathroom. She opened the door without further delay.
When the door opened, Xuxu’s eyes narrowed and her heart sank. She scurried in and turned the shower off. After that, she pulled a towel and wrapped it around Su Yue.
Su Yue was trembling all over, her lips had turned purplish.
She had been standing under the cold shower all these while.
Xuxu looked at the wound on her thigh and as expected, it was bleeding again.
Her heart ached as she chided her. “Why didn’t you listen? The doctor already said your wounds can’t come in contact with water otherwise there’ll be a risk of infection!”
Su Yue hung her head low, her wet hair sticking to her face and neck. Water was dripping everywhere.
Seeing her in that manner, Xuxu felt she had been too harsh with her words, and so she softened her tone. “Yueyue, quickly change out of your wet clothes and dry your hair.”
She stretched out her hand and pulled down another piece of towel to help Su Yue dry her hair.
“So disgusting and filthy.” Su Yue stretched out her hands to hug Xuxu tightly. She buried her face in Xuxu’s neck and wailed.
Xuxu’s heart was throbbing with pain as she looked down at Su Yue’s back. A layer of her skin seemed to have peeled off, and it looked so raw as if hot water had scalded it.
She looked up slowly and hugged her close, her eyes glinted with tears. “It’s alright now. Your Third Brother will teach them a painful lesson.”
As what Ming Ansheng said before, she was too aloof and resilient for her own good.
Su Yue enjoyed using extreme methods to deal with people she disliked, and unfortunately, it definitely included herself.
Standing under the cold shower and rubbing her skin off…
Xuxu had no idea if she had tried harming herself using such methods in the past, but she fully knew that if nothing was done to correct her character, the problem would get worse.
Xuxu applied some medicated cream on her back. After that, she stared at the wound on her thigh and sighed. “Let’s go back to the hospital and let the doctor change your dressing.”
There really wasn’t a need to go to the hospital since the doctor came over earlier that morning to give her an IV drip, but…
“Third sister-in-law, I’m sorry,” whispered Su Yue as she flashed a look of apology towards Xuxu.
Xuxu patted her on her head and gave her an assuring smile.
“Quickly change your clothes. I’ll go and change too.”
Su Yue nodded. “Mm.”
Xuxu stood up and walked towards the door.
Even before they reached the staircase landing, they knew the TV was on for they could already hear sounds coming from the TV. Xuxu held Su Yue’s hand and lead her down the stairs.
