Chapter 113: Don’t Be Close-minded. Isn’t He Just A Man? (1)
After 2-3 days, Zhou Xiaoxiao left the hospital.
Her family welcomed her back happily as if she was a princess.
Actually, she could reluctantly walk, but her lively brother — Zhou Zisi — suddenly became a reliable person.
He was determined not to let her off the ground, carrying her out of the elevator and placing her on the bed.
Zhou Xiaoxiao laid on the soft and comfortable bed at home, hugging the familiar but unfamiliar blanket.
She stared at the empty ceiling and Yu Xingzhi’s face flashed over her mind over and over.
She recalled his weak and pale, but determined face.
She recalled his gentle, elegant, and warm smile while they were deeply in love.
She recalled his blushing face while he was embarrassed.
And their tightly linked hands while in a life or death situation.
What should she do? I can’t let go or forget him.
I can’t get over him.
She rolled back and forth on her bad for a while, finally falling to sleep eventually.
While she was in deep sleep, Zhou Xiaoxiao felt herself standing in front of a room and two maids walked out, carrying basins.
While closing the door, they wiped their tears away.
“Who knows when Lady will get well at this rate.”
“Sigh, Marquis is so pitiful. Even I feel miserable while staring at his expression.”
The two maids seemed very familiar, as if they were from the residence. Zhou Xiaoxiao thought.
However, it felt like the maids couldn’t see her and walked right past her.
Zhou Xiaoxiao opened the door, but didn’t expect there to be no resistance.
She stumbled and penetrated through the wall, drifting in.
In the room, she saw herself.
No. She saw Zhou Dujuan’s body who was sitting absent-mindedly at the dining table.
Zhou Dujuan was like a puppet who lost her mind, eating and sitting when told to do so.
Yu Xingzhi sat in front of her and carefully fed her a bowl of porridge.
He fed a spoonful into her mouth and half a spoonful of porridge would fall down.
Yet, Yu Xingzhi was very patient and he held a handkerchief, catching the falling food and gently wiping the corners of her lips.
After a bit, he raised another spoonful of porridge to her mouth and coaxed, “Xiaoxiao, listen to me and take another bite.”
However, Zhou Dujuan was still as a statue and didn’t respond.
Yu Xingzhi’s gaze was gentle like water and he softly said, “Take a bite and I’ll kiss you once.”
He slowly fed her and then moved over, closing his eyes and pecking Zhou Dujuan’s forehead softly.
Zhou Xiaoxiao looked at this and felt a bitter feeling in his heart; she couldn’t help but call, “Xingzhi.”
Yet, Yu Xingzhi couldn’t hear her call or see her who was standing in front of him.
He looked gently at the unmoving body.
Lady Guo pushed the door in and sat beside Yu Xingzhi’s side.
“Son, ever since Xiaoxiao became like this, you almost have been looking over her 2-3 days without sleeping a wink. How can your body hold on any longer? How about you go rest first and let mother take care of her?”
Ever since I drowned, it’s only been 2-3 days?
Great. The two world’s time are almost the same.
Zhou Xiaoxiao stood to the side and happily thought.
If a day in the modern world was still a year in this world, she probably wouldn’t be able to accept that in just 20 or so days, Xingzhi would be so lonely and die of old age already.
Yu Xingzhi shook her head and said, “Thank you mother. But when Xiaoxiao took care of me, she did everything herself. Now, this child doesn’t want anyone else taking care of her but me.”
His eyes almost never left Zhou Xiaoxiao and he said, “I want her to be able to see me when she wakes up.”
“Foolish child. If Xiaoxiao remains unconscious, do you plan on looking over her your entire life?” Lady Guo raised her handkerchief and wiped her tears.
Yu Xingzhi remained silent for a while and said, “If she’s here, I will naturally look over her. If she’s not, I will also…”
“You what?!” Lady Guo said miserably, “You have been educated by the holy book for 2 decades and where did your knowledge go? You fed the dogs with it? For a woman, you dare to abandon your country and your parents too?”
