Chapter 702: Si Yiyan, How Is She?
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
After having had her meal, Wen Xinya dozed off again because of the pain in her head.
Noticing that she had slipped into a deep slumber, Old Mr. Wen tiptoed slowly out of the room and closed the door gently.
A while later, Wen Xinya opened her eyes slowly and tried to sit up straight while bearing with the terrible pain in her head. She lifted the blanket and struggled to get out of bed.
Previously, Si Yiyan rushed to save her despite the injuries that he had sustained. On that night, Si Yiyan stayed in the room beside hers. Hence, she planned to try her luck and see if Si Yiyan was also injured and resting in the ward beside hers.
As soon as Wen Xinya’s feeble foot landed on the ground, she swayed unsteadily and almost fell down. Just as she balanced herself, she was struck with another giddy spell and was overwhelmed with a splitting headache, which made her break out in cold sweat.
She supported herself against the wall and exited the ward.
Although it was just a short walk, Wen Xinya felt as if her legs were weighed down by lead and she took two minutes to cover the short distance which should have been covered within a few seconds.
When she reached the ward beside hers, she held her breath and knocked on the door gently.
Soon, the door was pulled open.
Wen Xinya’s pupils constricted and she stared at Gu Yuehan, who was standing by the door. Upon confirming that her guess was right, she was flabbergasted and her face turned as pale as a sheet.
“Miss… Miss Wen, how did you find out…” Gu Yuehan spluttered in shock, not expecting Wen Xinya to show up at the ward.
Wen Xinya grabbed the door tightly and tried to keep her balance. She asked feebly, “Is Si Yiyan inside?”
Just as Gu Yuehan was thinking of how he should answer her, Wen Xinya extended her arm to open the door before walking into the ward.
When Wen Xinya saw Si Yiyan lying on the bed, she placed her hand on her mouth and burst into tears. “Si… Si Yiyan!”
Si Yiyan lied down on the bed with tubes attached to his neck, chest, and diaphragm. She had no idea what they were for, though she knew that Si Yiyan was experiencing health issues.
Although she had covered her mouth, she could not control her sobbing.
Gu Yuehan had no idea what to say. “Um, Ninth Young Master… is alright now for the most part. Don’t worry, Miss Wen…”
Si Yiyan had previously undergone procedures to have blood drained out of his lungs and chest. They were separated into two treatments because the doctor was afraid that he would not be able to take it.
Wen Xinya interrupted him. “What’s wrong with his health? What happened?”
He did not seem to be injured. In fact, it looked much more severe than an injury.
Although she could not quite remember the entire process, his unique scent was still surrounding her and making her feel safe despite the immense pain. His voice was gentle and affectionate, giving her a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Yet, in the blink of an eye, he was lying feebly on the hospital bed.
Gu Yuehan was momentarily speechless. After a moment of silence, he said, “Miss Wen, why don’t you ask him yourself when he comes to later?”
He had no idea if he should tell her or not and hence, felt that it would be better to let Si Yiyan do the talking instead.
Wen Xinya remained silent and instead tried to keep her balance. She walked towards the bed and stared at his pale face, on which his veins could be seen clearly, intertwined and greenish. Si Yiyan looked extremely vulnerable, for the very first time.
Si Yiyan was the kind who wouldn’t bat an eyelid even if his arm was about to break. Yet, he actually had a few tubes attached to him and was lying on the bed. She sobbed and said, “I won’t ask you about the rest, I just want to know what his condition is like now. Don’t lie to me. Otherwise, I’ll definitely tell on you to Si Yiyan when he comes to later.”
If she were to question Si Yiyan directly, he would definitely hide the truth from her in order not to make her worry.
Gu Yuehan could not help but smile wryly. At the thought of Xu Xianghu being sent to the oilfield, he shivered in fear, knowing fully that Si Yiyan would definitely listen to Wen Xinya. Hence, he decided to come clean. “Ninth Young Master is just suffering from an old ailment. His life will go on as per normal if he doesn’t suffer a relapse. However, when he does, his life will be in incredible danger.”
This time, Si Yiyan’s condition was rather severe, though his life was not in danger, all thanks to the surgeries that had gone well previously. However, he merely suffered a horrible relapse because of the blood remnants in his chest.
Wen Xinya blamed herself, for he had gotten hurt because of her again. For the third time, Si Yiyan risked his own life to save hers. “Then… does he suffer frequent relapses?”
Gu Yuehan said, “No, it only happens once in a while. Ninth Young Master has never suffered a relapse in two years.”
Wen Xinya suppressed her emotions. Due to the change in her mood, she began to get a splitting headache and her vision started to blur. A strong discomfort formed in her heart and she felt nauseous. “How’s his condition now?”
Gu Yuehan said, “Ninth Young Master’s condition has stabilized. The doctor will come by to remove his tubes in a while. He’ll be fine after resting for two days. Don’t worry, Miss Wen.”
Although his condition was now stable, it’d be better for Si Yiyan to undergo another surgery in order to avoid future relapses.
Wen Xinya felt a huge relief and asked, “When will he come to?”
Wen Xinya held his hand gently, only to realize that it was clammy and devoid of his usual warmth. She felt a sudden sense of misery.
Gu Yuehan answered, “The doctor said that he will come to in a while.”
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “Go out! I’ll stay here to accompany him for a while.”
Noticing that she had broken out in a sweat and was appearing weak and feeble, Gu Yuehan said hesitantly, “Miss Wen, your health… you suffered a severe injury on your head and you ought to get some rest. You’d better…”
Wen Xinya interrupted. “I’ll just accompany him for a while.”
Si Yiyan had risked his life to rescue her. She definitely wouldn’t harm her own health.
Seeing how stubborn she was, just like Si Yiyan, Gu Yuehan said, “I’ll wait outside the door. Call me if you need anything.”
Wen Xinya did not answer him and instead focused all of her attention on Si Yiyan.
Gu Yuehan walked out of the ward slowly and closed the door.
