Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Xinghe was temporarily dazed after she woke up.
What was the meaning of her dream?
She hadn't dreamt about her mother in a long time.
What was her mother trying to tell her in the dream?
Xinghe thought about it as she took in her surroundings. She realized she was in a hospital; Xia Zhi was fast asleep beside her.
Outside, the sun had just risen, the smell of dew hanging heavy in the air.
Xinghe took a quick look at her phone and was shocked to realize she had been unconscious for a few days.
A complicated bundle of emotions arose in her heart when her thoughts went back to the things that happened yesterday.
At that moment, the door to her ward was gently opened.
A smartly dressed Mubai walked in. Their eyes met and both were a little bit stunned.
Shyness flitted across Mubai's face before disappearing completely. He collected himself quickly and walked in, unhurriedly.
"Just woke up?" he asked in a low rumble.
Xinghe nodded and said, "Thank you for your help yesterday."
"It's nothing. How are you feeling? You've been out for a few days."
"Much better, thank you for asking" Xinghe wanted to enquire about his condition but she swallowed the question when she saw how easily he moved about and how radiant he looked.
Mubai nodded when he saw the color that had returned to Xinghe's face. "It's good that you're feeling better. By the way, the person that made an attempt on your life was arranged by Chui Ming."
"I thought as much."
"However, from now on, Chui Ming will never be a source of worry for you in the future."
Mubai knew about Chui Ming's arrest and that his prosecution was a certainty at this point, but Xinghe shouldn't know this yet, how could she know that he won't be a problem?
Just how far ahead has she planned?
For some reason, Xinghe's intelligence and acuity made Mubai somewhat flustered.
"Is there anything you want to talk to me about?" Xinghe asked with a curious expression.
Mubai couldn't possibly reveal he was there to check up on her
"I'm leaving the hospital soon, so I'm just here to see how you're doing," Mubai answered in good taste. Xinghe nodded.
"I'm doing just fine," Xinghe replied honestly, "Again, thank you for your help on the day of the accident and the few other times before that."
"I've told you there's no need for thanks. It's part of my responsibility, after all you are the mother of our son." Mubai purposely used the pronoun 'our', instead of 'my' or even Lin Lin's name.
It seemed to draw their relationship closer.
Xinghe felt a part of her give.
In all honesty, Mubai was a great father. He had been taking good care of Lin Lin all these years.
But now, she was plotting her way to win the custody of Lin Lin away from him. Suddenly, she felt guilty about it.
However, he was going to remarry, and have new children of his own
It wouldn't be wrong for her to fight for Lin Lin, would it?
Regardless, she couldn't shake the guilt out of her mind. Therefore, she decided to test the waters.
"Actually, I have something I want to discuss with you," Xinghe said cautiously.
Mubai implored, "Okay, tell me."
"It is about"
"Mubai, so you're here!" Tianxin burst into the room before Xinghe could finish her sentence.
She rushed to Mubai's side and curled her hand proprietarily around Mubai's arm. She treated Xinghe like she wasn't even there in the room and said, "I went to your ward to search for you but you weren't there. I thought you'd already left the hospital but I knew you would wait for me. Come on, let's go home. Auntie and I have cooked a pot of chicken stew for you."
