Su Lengxian knew clearly how dear Yangyang was to her elder brother. She just wanted to bring Yangyang out to enjoy the warm sun rays and have fun, but she had never expected to meet a lunatic who would fight her for Yangyang. Why would a crazy woman like her appear in broad daylight?
She wanted to snatch Yangyang back, but that woman was way out of her mind. After a while, she finally realized that that woman was Li Wenhui, who was completely unrecognizable now. Li Wenhui hated Meng Xinyan, and it was because Yangyang was Meng Xinyan’s flesh and blood that Li Wenhui had done this despicable thing.
Su Lengxian was wailing desperately now. She was gravely afraid that Yangyang would lose her life, and she felt even more remorseful over the stupid things she did in the past. It was all her fault. If she hadn’t set her elder brother up with Li Wenhui just to spite Meng Xinyan, this would never have happened.
Now, she felt that she had truly been stupid back then. But it was too late for regrets now. She could only kneel on the ground and wail. In the end, she started to beg the passersby. “Please save the child… Save the child… I’m Su Lengxian from the Su family. As long as you save the child, the Su family will give you anything you want. We’ll give you money, okay?” This was the first time Su Lengxian had lowered her head to beg humbly. It was all for her elder brother and Yangyang.
One by one, people started to jump into the river.
Some of them couldn’t swim and merely called for help. Since Su Lengxian had appeared on Ning An City’s news, some of them recognized her. After a year passed, all sorts of things had happened, so everyone had mostly forgotten about what happened to her.
Thinking back now, everyone felt rather impressed. Who would have imagined that Su Lengxian, who used to be insufferably arrogant, would be begging everyone for help now?
At that moment, Yun Bixue arrived at the bridge, panting loudly. She was just about to jump to save Yangyang, but Xie Limo caught up to her and immediately pulled her back. “Don’t worry. I’m here.” As he spoke, he removed his jacket and jumped into the river.
Yun Bixue rested both of her hands on the railings and looked down, her heart thumping wildly. She didn’t blink at all. Her grip on the railings was so tight that her knuckles turned pale.
Her mind went blank, and she could only pray for the child to be saved quickly.
When Xie Limo finally rescued Yangyang, the ambulance had arrived. He sent the child straight to the hospital, with Su Lengxian tagging along and accompanying her.
Yun Bixue hurriedly pulled Xie Limo into her arms and hugged him. “Why did you go ahead and jump just like that? I was worried sick!”
Looking at his soaked body, Xie Limo pushed Yun Bixue away and said, “You’ll get your clothes wet and catch a cold. I’m fine. If you were the one who jumped down, I’d feel even more worried.”
Yun Bixue lowered her head. “I was just concerned about the child.”
A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes as he caressed her head. “I know you like children, and it’s only normal that you want to save another person. Compassion makes us do so, that’s why you did the right thing. But I’m doing the right thing too by helping my wife. Don’t overthink, okay?”
Yun Bixue nodded and looked at the direction of the ambulance. “Yangyang will be fine, right?”
Xie Limo sighed. “When I was in the water, I realized that there were already a few people carrying the child. Even the woman who had jumped down with Yangyang had carried her on top of herself.”
Yun Bixue was startled. She couldn’t wrap her head around the situation. Since the woman had already jumped into the water with someone else’s child, why did she still want to save the child? Could she have changed her mind and felt compassionate all of a sudden?
“What about that woman then?”
Xie Limo shook his head and answered, “When I tried to rescue them, she refused to cooperate. She was eventually saved, but she has already taken her last breath.”
