Shen Wenna could feel that the vibe between the two of them was odd, so she did not say anything. When Xi Xiaye helped her up, her empty glance turned to Qi Lei, and naturally, she did not see anything.
As he watched the mother and daughter move further away, Qi Lei did not chase them. He remained with both hands in his pocket as he silently looked on… and on…
After a while, just as he was about to turn around and leave, he noticed a booklet on the bench. He hesitated for a moment, then walked over and picked it up to look.
Unexpectedly, it was a very delicate drawing booklet.
He casually flipped it open, and what greeted his sight was a cartoon pig!
It was drawn quite well and seemed very comical. There was even that familiar graceful and flowing handwriting at the bottom.
If love tells me to continue on this journey, then I will continue to chase it till the end of my life.
He continued to flip to another page and saw another cartoon pig. However, its form was different from the last one. This was very silly and cute, and there was also a line written at the bottom.
A certain person’s dishes taste like Father’s cooking…
He continued to flip.
What should be let go will never be urged to stay. What should be urged to stay will never be let go!
Every word and sentence was so encouraging. This thick book just had a few drawings in front, and the comics were probably all drawn impromptu.
Could these exhibits of strength be how she managed to get through everything?
A smile suddenly flashed across Qi Lei’s handsome face. How unexpected! She looked so cold and unfriendly, yet she would draw such cute… pigs.
This little woman seemed to be a gem. With a little digging, you would find unexpected surprises!
No wonder Mu Yuchen so quickly put her under his wing. However, whether or not he could keep her forever did not seem to be certain!
Soon, Qi Lei slowly closed the drawing book. With a faint smile still on his face, he looked toward the direction that the mother and daughter pair had left, but any traces of them had long vanished.
Back at the ward, she had just helped Shen Wenna to lie down on the bed when Mu Lingshi came over with a Thermos.
It was the soup that Wang Hui had specially brewed for Shen Wenna. Because it tasted quite delicious, Shen Wenna drank more than two bowls at a go.
Mu Lingshi and Shen Wenna were not distant either. They chatted quite happily, and she stayed for a long while before she left.
At this moment, the sky outside had darkened. The streetlamps that flickered shone in through the window from the side and the night breeze felt slightly cool too.
There was only one dim light in the ward. After Xi Xiaye carefully helped Shen Wenna with her shower, Shen Wenna fell asleep comfortably, while Xi Xiaye lay down sleepily on the bedside, feeling slightly worn out.
It was only when the special care nurses came over to call her that she woke up in a daze.
When she picked up her phone to check the time, she realized that Mu Yuchen had called her five or six times in a row, but she had not heard the calls.
She rubbed the space between her brows a little exhaustedly, then called him back. When he picked up, Mu Yuchen was already rushing over to the hospital.
“Has the nurse that we hired gone over?” Mu Yuchen soft voice came through.
“Mmm, they’re here. Mother’s asleep too. You should go home first. I’m going to accompany Mother tonight.”
Before Xi Xiaye finished speaking to Mu Yuchen, Shen Wenna who was in a light slumber had awoken and quickly insisted, “Xiaye, I’m fine. It’s not like I can’t move around. You’ve been tired the whole day too. You looked quite pale. Go home, I’m fine. It’s alright with the nurses here. You won’t be able to keep up if you strain yourself like this every day!”
“Go home, Mrs. Mu. Just leave things here to me. Master Mu especially asked you to go home to rest earlier. I will take good care of Teacher Shen.”
“Okay, that’s enough. Go home. If you don’t, I’m going to chase you out!” Shen Wenna spoke quite frankly, then she pushed Xi Xiaye away.
Xi Xiaye then stood up helplessly. She hesitated for a moment, then said, “Okay, then I’ll go home first.”
“Sis Fu, I’ll leave my mother in your good hands then. Call me if there’s anything, or call Mu Yuchen. Our phones are switched on 24/7,” reminded Xi Xiaye worriedly.
“Got it. Go home. it’s quite late!”
Then, Xi Xiaye picked her handbag up and slowly walked out of the door. Mu Yuchen still had not hung up on the other end of the phone.
“Just wait for me at the hospital entrance.”
“I’ve arrived. Come down quickly.”
Soon, Xi Xiaye reached the entrance of the hospital. From afar, she could already see the Porsche that was parked underneath the streetlamps by the roadside. She had just reached the car when Mu Yuchen opened the car door to the front passenger seat from inside.
Xi Xiaye sat inside, closed the car door, and quickly buckled up as she took the wet towel he handed to wipe her face and hands. “Grandpa’s gone home, hasn’t he?”
Mu Yuchen saw her gaze and could already tell what she was thinking, so he consoled her while reaching out to fix her hair that had been messed up by the wind as he spoke, “Mmm, I sent him back to the Shen residence before I came over. He’s quite a strong-willed person too.”
“Tired?” he asked softly when he saw the fatigue between her brows.
“I’m alright. Today, I woke up quite early. I’ll wake up later tomorrow.” She could not help but hold her forehead and sigh, “I hope that Mother’s condition can be stabilized soon. I’m quite worried.”
“The doctor has said it’s fine, so it’ll be fine. What are you worried about? Sleep for a while. I’ll wake you up when we reach home.”
Then, he gently nudged her forehead and let her lean on his shoulder before he started the car.
“Mmm… Remember to wake me up when we get home.” Xi Xiaye did not reject and gently leaned on him as she closed her dry and tired eyes.
After a while, she suddenly called out to him, “Mu Yuchen?”
“Mmm? What is it?” he responded as he looked down at her.
“Didn’t you say you were going to help me handle Yue Lingsi? Today, she came looking for trouble with my mother again. It was Qi Lei who managed to stop her in time. Yue Lingsi was even planning to get back at me with a medical document to prove her injuries were a result of me beating her up,” she could not help but complain.
Mu Yuchen’s expression darkened slightly, but he reacted very quickly. “Be patient. When Father’s end is done, then I’ll help you get back at her, okay?”
“Mmm? I remember now. Today, you were betting on something with Grandpa. Is it about Father?” Xi Xiaye suddenly thought about this. She looked at him as she squinted her starry eyes.
“Do you really want to know?” he asked softly as he smiled at her.
“Obviously,” she responded, her slender arms subconsciously looped around his arm. “I knew that it’d definitely be related to Father. When Grandpa talks about Father, he would get angry, but he actually has mix feelings about it.”
Mu Yuchen chuckled. “Regarding this suspenseful story, you’ll find out in a few more days.”
