“You should go back, take a shower and change your clothes, older brother. You don’t look good like this.” When Xia Qingyi could remain conscious, she smiled as she told Mo Han, who was sitting on the bed.
Mo Han smiled too. “Alright, I’ll be back as soon as I can.”
He watched Xia Qingyi slowly drift off to sleep as he sat on the edge of the bed. He kept his hand on her blanket to feel her weak breathing, as if this was the only way that could help his thumping heartbeat become regular.
Mo Han left eventually. He listened to Xia Qingyi’s words and returned home to take a shower. It was only when he saw himself through the fogged mirror in the washroom that he realized that he really looked the way that Xia Qingyi had described. Even his beard stubble had grown out.
Mo Han smiled, as he took out the razor to shave his chin clean of stubble. He wiped his hair as he walked out to put on his clothes.
He did not stay at home for too long. He went to Xia Qingyi’s room to get some clothes after his shower and got some necessary items that Xia Qingyi needed for her hospitalization stay before he hurriedly rushed to the hospital again.
He started to worry again at the thought of Xia Qingyi being in the hospital alone.
This time however, Xia Qingyi slept longer. After he had reached the hospital and had sat by her bed for two hours, she was still not awake.
“Your younger sister seem to be in quite good condition right now. She can be transferred to a normal ward if there are no issues after two more days of observation here.”
The doctor making rounds stood in front of Xia Qingyi’s bed for a while as he listened to her heartbeat with the stethoscope.
“Do remember to come back after two weeks to remove the stitches. Do not let her eat anything spicy or sour for the next few weeks and let her eat more light food. It would be good for the healing of her wound.” the doctor continued to say.
“I got it.” Mo Han answered. He asked as he looked at Xia Qingyi’s cast, “Her hand should be fine, right?”
“It’s not that serious. She has a slight fracture and has twisted her tendon. Try not to move her left hand too much in the mean time and just let it recuperate. If not, it might have some effect on the healing of her bone afterwards.”
Mo Han asked, “It’s fine for her to keep sleeping and not wake up right?”
The doctor replied, “Let her sleep if she can sleep. She’s probably exhausted. There’s no problem with it. You don’t have to wake her up.”
The doctor turned to look at Mo Han. “However, there’s one thing for you to pay extra attention to. I heard that she was practically naked when she had been sent here. Did she…?”
“Almost, but no.”
“Then you’ll have to remember to counsel her a little after she wakes up. She’ll be slightly affected psychologically after experiencing such a thing. Try not to let a psychological problem arise from this.”
Mo Han sat back on the edge of Xia Qingyi’s bed after the doctor had left as he waited for her to wake up.
Xia Qingyi woke up about half an hour after he had started to wait.
The first thing she saw after opening her eyes was Mo Han. In her sleepy daze, she smiled at him.
“You’re back?” Xia Qingyi opened her mouth to speak.
Mo Han moved to caress her hand. “Yes.”
“My head hurts.” Xia Qingyi felt a little more conscious.
“It’ll be fine after a few days.”
Xia Qingyi sobered a little and finally saw the cast on her left hand. She could not move her body as there was still a drip connected to her right hand which was wrapped in bandages.
“My hand… is broken?”
“No, it’s just a slight fracture. You need the cast and to let it recuperate for two or three weeks.”
“Ah? For such a long time?”
“It’s not long. The most important thing is to recuperate your body.”
“Is there a mirror? Nothing had happened to my face, right?”
Mo Han smiled. “Your face is fine. It’s quite good.”
“Bring the mirror please. Let me take a look, I can’t be at ease.” Xia Qingyi pouted.
