Chapter 127: It Hurts
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Amongst the cries of agony in this desolate rainy night, Mo Han could hear a soft voice from behind him.
“Older brother… Older brother…”
Mo Han’s heart beat intensely. He moved his leg to stabilize his shaking steps towards Xia Qingyi.
“Older brother… It hurts…” Xia Qingyi moaned.
Mo Han wanted to break down after hearing her words. He knelt on the ground, untying the rope around her wrist carefully. He supported her back and hugged her in his embrace. Mo Han tried so hard to stop himself from stuttering. “I know… I know… I’m calling the ambulance immediately.”
“Stay still. Hold on for a while.” Mo Han tried to console Xia Qingyi as per usual, though his trembling hand as he called the ambulance betrayed him.
“It’ll be fine soon! It won’t hurt in a while.” Mo Han kept hugging Xia Qingyi’s cold body after calling the ambulance. He did not dare to let go.
“Help me… put my clothes on properly…” Speaking had became extremely hard for Xia Qingyi. With every word she said, she felt a scorching fire burning in her chest.
Xia Qingyi’s shirt on the floor had been torn into pieces and could not be worn anymore. Mo Han carefully wrapped her in the jacket that he had placed on her earlier, as he buttoned up the shirt one by one shakily.
“It’s worn properly now. You’re fine. No one can see anymore.”
Xia Qingyi felt a little bit of warmth. Her tired consciousness had reached its limit and she was about to fall into deep sleep.
“You’re fine. You’re fine. I’m here now.” Mo Han move to caress Xia Qingyi’s face, only to touch a sticky liquid at the back of her head accidentally.
Under the dim light from the street lamp, he saw a patch of dark red on his palm. It was the color of blood mixed with dirt.
Mo Han’s voice was hoarse and shaking. “Be good and don’t go to sleep. Talk to me.”
But there was no more sound from Xia Qingyi. Her head was leaning against Mo Han’s chest, while her hand fell on the dirty ground. Mo Han hugged her as he desperately wiped away the blood on his hands with his shirt. He held back his churning emotions and placed Xia Qingyi’s injured hand on him instead.
Mo Han could not do anything. He did not dare to touch Xia Qingyi any further, afraid that her injuries would be made more serious by him. He just knelt there with her in his arms. Every second of him looking at Xia Qingyi’s pale face was a torture to him. He kept looking around the alley corner, trying to see if the ambulance had reached.
In his memory, he had waited for a very long time. It was such a long wait that he had almost lost control and wanted to carry Xia Qingyi to the hospital. The ringing of the ambulance only arrived from afar in the hazy and rainy night.
However, the truth was that he had only waited for ten minutes. It was just that every minute had felt like a year to Mo Han.
“Please wait outside first and go settle the administrative procedures at the first floor. We will inform you if anything happens.” The nurse and doctor outside of the emergency room forbade Mo Han from entering again and pushed him out after they had gotten Xia Qingyi into the emergency room.
“You’re injured too. Why don’t you go clean up your injury first?” A nurse at the side advised him nicely at the sight of some blood traces on Mo Han’s arm, as well as his disheveled appearance.
Mo Han turned his gaze away from the emergency room to look at his arm. He merely looked at the blood on his shirt, and his words were emotionless. “I’m fine. This is her blood.”
Once the administrative procedures had been settled, Mo Han kept waiting at the entrance of the emergency room. Though, it had not been long since he had sat down when the public address system of the emergency room suddenly sounded. “Can the relative of Xia Qingyi, the relative of Xia Qingyi, please proceed to the emergency room now.”
His heart skipped a beat as he stood up and walked to the entrance of the emergency room. He then saw a doctor came out that said, “Who is the relative of Xia Qingyi?”
“I am. What’s wrong?”
“How are you related to her?”
“We’re brother and sister. I’m her older brother.”
“Alright, please follow me.” The doctor pushed open the door of the emergency room and signaled for him to follow him into the emergency room.
