Very quickly, Wen Haowen received news of Ning Shuqian being hospitalized. He couldn’t help but be stunned, put down the busy work on hand instantly, and hurriedly rushed to the hospital.
Ning Shuqian’s wound had already been treated by the doctor. As the wound was treated in time, it wasn’t a serious injury besides being a deep wound. Ning Shuqian came round before the anesthesia wore off.
At this moment, due to the pain from the wound, Ning Shuqian’s brows furrowed deeply, causing fine lines to appear on her forehead and deepening her crow’s feet. However, as Ning Shuqian was used to faking her expression, everything at this point didn’t affect her beauty. Instead, it added a poetic pitifulness and fragility to her poise.
Upon seeing Wen Haowen, Ning Shuqian called out weakly with tears streaming down, looking all pitiful like a pear blossom bathed in rain. “Hao… Haowen! I’m so scared, I’m really scared, so worried that I’d die just like this, never to see you again…”
The anesthesia on her wound had yet to wear off. Besides feeling weak all over, Ning Shuqian didn’t feel any pain on her wound.
Wen Haowen’s heart dropped as he hurriedly asked, “Shuqian, exactly what has happened? Who was the one who stabbed you? Why would someone stab you?”
At the most, he guessed that Ning Shuqian had been mistakenly injured. After all, some patients in the hospital had extreme emotions due to their illnesses, and it was normal for them to commit extreme acts and accidentally injure others. Such news was daily affairs on the papers.
Ning Shuqian had originally been faking her cries but felt sadder as she cried and couldn’t control herself momentarily. “It was Shen Mengting that little b*tch. I’ve been helping her in view of the relationship with her mother, yet she actually returned my kindness with enmity and blamed me for her mother’s death…”
After being stabbed by Shen Mengting, she knew that she couldn’t hide her meeting with Shen Mengting and decided to say it herself. Based on her understanding of Wen Haowen, he would definitely believe her with some explanation.
Wen Haowen’s expression darkened gradually and looked at Ning Shuqian with a malicious look. “Didn’t you promise me to cut off all connections with Shen Mengting and her mother?”
Shen Mengting and her mother always reminded him of the fact that Ning Shuqian once had a child with someone else, and that child was now calling him her father. He even suspected that Ning Shuqian still had feelings for that man—otherwise, why would she take care of Shen Mengting and her mother like this?
Ning Shuqian cried bitterly and piteously. “Haowen, a health checkup is required before artificial insemination. I came to the hospital today for the preconception examination, didn’t expect to bump into Shen Mengting at the hospital, and couldn’t have expected that Shen Mengting would actually stab me.”
She knew that Wen Haowen highly valued the pregnancy matter and would definitely believe her words.
Wen Haowen was slightly suspicious. Previously, she had not been enthusiastic about ovulation pills and artificial insemination and always avoided them. Why would she suddenly go to the hospital and so coincidentally bumped into Shen Mengting?
Looking at his suspicious expression, Ning Shuqian cried bitterly. “Haowen, I’m not lying to you. The doctor examining me is called Lin Mengxue—you can check it out now if you don’t believe me.”
Only then did Wen Haowen really believe Ning Shuqian and hurriedly took her hand.
“Ah! It hurts!” Ning Shuqian cried out in pain. Instantly, her pale face became a few shades paler.
Only then did Wen Haowen notice that her right wrist was wrapped in a white bandage. “This was also caused by Shen Mengting?”
Huge drops of tears fell incessantly from Ning Shuqian’s eyes across her pale and weak cheeks, making her look even more pitiful. “It was… Xinya! I didn’t expect her to actually be in cahoots with Shen Mengting.”
Wen Haowen’s face darkened. “Is Wen Xinya that little b*tch related to Shen Mengting injuring you? Why didn’t you call and let me know?”
Ning Shuqian looked disturbed as she shook her head nonstop and sobbed. “I don’t know, I really don’t know. I don’t know what Xinya was doing together with Shen Mengting and don’t know why Shen Mengting hates me so much that she has to kill me. The more I think about today’s incident, the more scared I feel.”
Looking at her chaotic and frightened expression, Wen Haowen’s heart ached. “Shuqian, stop crying. Hush, I’ll stop asking, I’ll not ask anything.”
However, in his heart, he became surer that it was highly possible that Wen Xinya had something to do with Shuqian being injured by Shen Mengting today.
Ning Shuqian’s expression was slightly worked up and her voice was weak, yet with hastened sobs, as she cried even more bitterly. “Haowen, I’ve been helping Shen Mengting out in many ways. Exactly where did I do her any wrong—why does she hate me so much? I totally have no idea what reason does she have to hate me like this, so much that she wanted to kill me despite defying the law.”
“Stop thinking, then. You should focus on healing your injury now.” Wen Haowen hurriedly comforted her with an extremely awful expression. Indeed, Shen Mengting had no reason to hate her. However, it would be possible if Shen Mengting was incited by Wen Xinya.
Thinking of which, he already determined in his heart that this incident was definitely related to Wen Xinya.
“Every time I recall how Shen Mengting stabbed me with the scissors, I feel very scared, really very scared…” Ning Shuqian’s lips quivered as a shiver suddenly ran down her spine and her whole body started trembling.
Peering through her tears, she saw Wen Haowen’s ever-changing expressions and knew that she had achieved her goal.
Wen Haowen touched her other hand and realized that her hand was icy cold. “It’s okay now, everything is over.”
Only then did Ning Shuqian calmed down slightly. “I can’t just let the matter about Shen Mengting rest. She hates me so much… If I let her go just like this, who knows what she’ll do to me in the future. So I can’t just let her go like this.”
Ning Shuqian already had it planned out. Wasn’t Shen Mengting underage? In that case, she would make her spend her life in a criminal correction center.
Wen Haowen touched her head gently and said, “Don’t worry. I’ll handle it. You can heal your wound in peace. I’ll definitely stand up for you.”
Only then did a smile appear on Ning Shuqian’s pale face. “Haowen, you’re so nice to me!”
Seeing that a weak smile emerged on her face despite still having tears in her eyes, looking as beautiful as a tender white flower with dews of gratitude, Wen Haowen’s heart throbbed slightly. “Does the wound hurt?”
With the mention of her wound, Ning Shuqian suddenly felt a piercing pain from her abdomen which was almost too much for her to bear. Only then did she realize that the anesthesia had probably worn off. Ning Shuqian frowned and said, “Hurts. Hurts so badly.”
Wen Haowen said gently, “I’ll feed you some pain medication. You won’t feel the pain anymore after sleeping.”
Wen Haowen retrieved the medication on the cupboard, read the instructions carefully, only poured her a cup of water after confirming that they were painkillers, and fed her the medicine.
After taking the painkillers, Ning Shuqian really felt that the wound didn’t hurt so badly anymore, felt tired, and fell asleep after speaking briefly to Wen Haowen.
