Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
When she was young, Qiao Xi was pushed into the water by Qiao Rou and almost drowned. After that, she was very afraid of water for the next few years. It was only after she challenged herself countless times that she slowly learned how to swim. However, before that, it was absolutely impossible for her to approach the water’s edge, nor was it possible for her to dive into the sea. Even so, those memories were firmly engraved in her mind and could not be erased.
“Xi Xi,” Gu Zheng called out softly, then took the yellow notebook from her hand. He bent down and picked up Qiao Xi who was in pain while gently placing her on the bed and caressing her forehead. “Close your eyes and calm down for a while.”
Qiao Xi could not open her eyes, nor could she hear anything. She was deeply immersed in her own world. There was a dark beach in front of her, and the surrounding was cold and dark blue seawater. Her nose was filled with the strong smell of blood and salt from the seawater. Her hands and feet seemed to be tied up, and she was unable to struggle free. She could only watch helplessly as she sank into the sea. Gradually, she grew unable to breathe.
Gu Zheng’s slightly cold lips landed on her eyes. They were extremely gentle and trembling. Gu Zheng reached out and gently stroked her cheek, afraid that he would hurt her. His low and hoarse voice murmured in her ear, but it still could not wake her up from her nightmare.
“I’ll be by your side forever. Don’t be afraid.”
This time, Qiao Xi slept for a long time. When she woke up, the sky was very dark outside, and her temples were slightly painful. She carefully recalled what had happened before she fell asleep. She vaguely remembered that she had casually picked up a book and seen something. For some reason, she fell asleep and had another nightmare.
Qiao Xi had a splitting headache as if someone had punched a hole in her forehead. She was missing something. She raised her eyes to look around and confirmed that she was still in the office. Did that mean she had slept from morning till night? When did she sleep so well? She remembered that when she was busy completing design drafts in the past, she would still be full of energy. She could go two days and two nights without sleep. However, she seemed to not have ha enough sleep recently.
Gu Zheng’s voice sounded from behind. Qiao Xi abruptly turned around and noticed that Gu Zheng had been sitting on the sofa the entire time. The lights were dim, and his eyes were so empty like a statue.
Gu Zheng was already used to the dark. Even if he could not see, he could quickly find the switch. Instantly, the entire interior lit up, and Gu Zheng’s eyes gradually recovered to a light brown color.
Qiao Xi was stunned for a few seconds. Hadn’t she already detoxified Gu Zheng’s poison? Logically speaking, Gu Zheng should be able to see now, but in the darkness, his eyes were still empty. Qiao Xi suddenly became nervous. “Gu Zheng, can’t you see?”
Gu Zheng was stunned for a moment before he replied softly, “Of course, I can see. Otherwise, how could I have found the switch? I was able to see long ago. It’s just that I can’t see as clearly.
“How are you? Are you still feeling unwell?” Gu Zheng did not give her the chance to continue asking and quickly changed the topic. He approached Qiao Xi and reached out to rub her forehead before smiling. “Mrs. Gu, you’re really stupid.”
Qiao Xi cried out in pain as a dull pain came from her forehead. Coincidentally, there was a mirror opposite her. She hurriedly looked over and saw that her forehead was red and swollen.
What was going on? Could it be that she suddenly fainted because her head hit the bookshelf?
“How is it? Does your head still hurt?”
The two of them looked in the direction of the voice. Ye Qingyuan walked in with the first aid kit. When he saw that Qiao Xi was awake, he smiled and said, “I thought you would sleep for a longer period of time. Miss Qiao, you’re really awesome!”
Qiao Xi could not help but blush. Had she really fainted from hitting her head on the bookshelf? Wasn’t this too awkward?
Ye Qingyuan handed the first aid kit to Gu Zheng. “Apply the medicine on her.”
Qiao Xi looked at him and asked in surprise, “Why aren’t you applying it for me? You’re the doctor!”
“Me? You have to get your jealous lover to agree first! I’ve already delivered the medicine, so I’ll leave first. Take note of your wound these few days. You’ll be fine in a few days. It’s just a small injury. Is it worth calling me over at night? Moreover, Mrs. Gu, you know medicine. Did you need me to come over?”
Gu Zheng glanced at him coldly. “The medicine is here. You can leave now.”
Ye Qingyuan smiled helplessly. Just as he was about to leave, he was stopped by Qiao Xi. “Wait, Doctor Ye, do you know Huang Yu?”
“I do.” Ye Qingyuan nodded. Qiao Xi gestured for Ye Qingyuan to walk over and whispered in his ear, “Help me pass a message to him. Gu Zheng’s eyes…”
