Chapter 111: You think He’s Handsome Because You haven’t Seen Anyone Better (2)
Quickly, Cheng Shizhao and the servants climbed down using a makeshift rope made from knotting clothes and pants together.
They tied it around the cage and carried Gongsun Yu up.
Yu Xingzhi was delighted and finally extended his hand over to Zhou Xiaoxiao.
The two held their hands and saw the cheerful looks in each other’s eyes.
Yet, the palm of Zhou Xiaoxiao’s hands were wet and she couldn’t hold onto him tightly, feeling the strength leaving her hand.
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt her hands slipping out of Yu Xingzhi’s hands uncontrollably.
“Xiaoxiao, hold onto me!”
She heard Yu Xingzhi yell and she was able to extend her other hand, when a wooden pile coming down from upstream suddenly slammed against her.
Zhou Xiaoxiao watched as their hands slipped away from each other.
She suddenly felt her body losing control and an undercurrent pulled her into a deep whirlpool.
In the last second, she saw Yu Xingzhi screaming her name loudly and jumping into the water.
She wanted to call for him but she ended up drinking a mouthful of water.
Then, blackness took over and she lost her conscious.
Yu Xingzhi woke up from unconsciousness and found himself to be completely soaked, laying by the wet grass near the river.
There was a bonfire in front of him and his cousin, Cheng Shizhao, was sitting by him and looking at him in concern.
He then remembered everything and suddenly stood up, asking, “Xiaoxiao! Where is she?”
Cheng Shizhao avoided his gaze, afraid to look straight at him.
Yu Xingzhi rolled and crawled towards the shore, only to see a pitch-black Henan river.
There were countless torches lit up by the two sides of the shore and guards were searching back and forth, calling out Zhou Xiaoxiao’s name.
“Xingzhi, you…you don’t need to worry. We haven’t found her yet and there are a lot of undercurrents and urgent currents as well. You must not jump down again.”
Yu Xingzhi remained unmoved and stiffly stood by the rocks on the shore, his gaze trained on the flickering torches.
After a while, he softly said, “Cousin, you don’t need to worry that I might do something stupid. She will definitely come back. She had told me before that nothing will happen to her.”
Cheng Shizhao glanced worriedly at Yu Xingzhi.
They still hadn’t found her in a such a long time, so Zhou Xiaoxiao is most likely dead…
If something happens to her, cousin will…
He knew very well that Yu Xingzhi was deeply in love with Zhou Xiaoxiao.
He almost couldn’t even think about the scary consequences of this.
Right now, someone from afar reported, “We found her. We found Lady Marquis!”
Zhou Xiaoxiao woke up and felt her body was sore and slow.
She softly moved and felt a pang of pain on her chest.
Zhou Xiaoxiao opened her eyes to see the pure white color.
Pure white wall.
Pure white bed sheets and blankets.
There was a transparent IV linked to her hand and liquid was dripping into the tube.
Zhou Xiaoxiao took a while before she reacted, realizing that she was at the hospital.
A modern hospital.
I transmigrated again?
She saw three heads popping in front of her and they were all murmuring about.
“Xiaoxiao is awake?”
“Whoa, you’re finally awake?”
“Let me call your mother.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao recognized them to be her best friends from college, Ruan Xinran, Chu Yunyun, and a store manager, Lin Zhihua.
“I…what’s wrong with me?”
Ruan Xinran carefully said, “Xiaoxiao, don’t you remember? You were stabbed by Xue Chunjian, that scum, and was unconscious for 3-4 days.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao clutched her chest and felt a wound there.
I had transmigrated for 3 years already, so why are they saying it’s only for 3-4 days?
Could everything just be a realistic dreams?
She reached for the banister by the side of the body and slightly moved her stiff body, letting herself lean up.
Chu Yunyun made a fuss and said, “Don’t! Don’t casually move around. Does it hurt? Does it hurt?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao comforted her, “It’s fine. I can hold on.”
Lin Zhihua carefully helped her up and placed a pillow behind her back.
“You’re just awake, so don’t be moved emotionally. If you have something to say, say it slowly. Your mother went to cook chicken soup for you and she will be here momentarily.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao thought her mind was a mess, so she slightly nodded, “Sorry to trouble you.”
