After Gu Yuehan left, Wen Xinya began to bawl loudly, unable to contain her emotions anymore.
Unlike in her previous lifetime where she felt burdened and suffocated by Xu Zhenyu’s endless devotion, she did not wish to escape Si Yiyan’s affection at all. However, she had taken him for granted and he would often put in the effort for her without her knowledge. She only realized how great of a man he was when she finally discovered everything that he had done for her.
In Xiasi Group, Si Yiyan was regarded highly like a god who possessed power and authority. He was formidable and relentless! In the Si Family, Si Yiyan was extremely outstanding and excelled in all areas! Yet, to her, he was nothing more than an affectionate man who was hopelessly devoted to her, completely rid of his pride and commanding aura. Instead, he was meek and pampered her all the time.
What’s not to love about a man like him?
Wen Xinya hung her head low and gently traced the lines on his palm with her fingers. The creases on his palm were intricately wound around each other in a messy manner, just like her complicated emotions. It was as if the lines on his palm were engraved on her heart, tugging at her heartstrings.
She opened her palm and placed it beside his, comparing the creases on their palms.
Hers was much simpler than his.
Wen Xinya could not help but take pity on him as she wondered, H
Wen Xinya suddenly felt extremely giddy while the pain in her head debilitated. She removed her shoes and lied down beside Si Yiyan. Holding onto his arm, she exclaimed, “Si Yiyan, I love you!”
She was not a pretentious person who often whispered sweet nothings. However, she could not control herself at this moment.
Si Yiyan moved his arm gently and Wen Xinya looked up to see that he was opening his eyes slowly.
Si Yiyan then held Wen Xinya’s gaze and stared at her with tears in his glittering eyes, seemingly a little confused and unable to recover from the shock.
Wen Xinya teared up instantly and said, “Si Yiyan, you baddie. You’ve come to and yet you’re still ignoring me.”
Si Yiyan sobered up and hurriedly tried to placate her emotions. “Don’t cry, I just didn’t realize what was going on just now.”
He did not expect to see Wen Xinya lying beside him right after he regained consciousness. Hence, he was rather shocked.
However, Wen Xinya did not buy his answer at all. She stared at the weak and feeble Si Yiyan and felt an immense heartache.
“Xinya, stop crying. Your head injury is severe and you’ll strain yourself by crying. The pain in your head will get worse,” Si Yiyan said, wishing he could hold her in his arms.
Wen Xinya dared not continue weeping and instead pressed his shoulders down and said, “Don’t move. You still have tubes attached to you. Are you courting death?”
He would often become too preoccupied with tending to her and would end up neglecting himself.
Si Yiyan finally remembered that he had just undergone blood drainage a while ago. Knowing that Wen Xinya must have already found out about his condition, he said reassuringly, “Xinya, don’t worry. It’s just an old ailment. There’s actually nothing wrong with my health.”
Wen Xinya sobbed and said, “What old ailment would require so many tubes?”
He still refused to tell her the truth. Although Gu Yuehan did not explain his condition to her explicitly, she could vaguely guess what was going on.
Si Yiyan comforted her softly. “I’m really alright. I was planning to go see you after the tubes were removed, but you actually came here first. By the way, how did you know that I was in the ward beside yours?”
Wen Xinya remained silent with a heavy heart. She knew that he was just trying to change the subject. The intelligent Si Yiyan also knew her reasons for showing up in his ward.
Seeing how infuriated she seemed, Si Yiyan explained, “This is the result of some wounds that I sustained in Russia years ago. I occasionally suffer relapses, but it had been a long time since it last happened.”
He did not lie and instead tried to make it sound less serious.
However, Wen Xinya knew exactly what he was thinking. Si Yiyan’s worst skill was making explanations. “What kind of ailment is that? It caused your life to be in danger.”
She wanted to see just how long he could tolerate it.
Si Yiyan was speechless. He sighed softly and said, “Back then, those Russians poured poison down my throat and it spread to my chest and lungs, causing there to be excessive internal bleeding. I then underwent several windpipe reconstruction surgeries. However, I did not fully recover and will sometimes bleed when air enters my diaphragm.”
Wen Xinya bit her lip tightly in a bid to calm herself down. “Are the pipes meant for draining the air and blood out of your lungs?”
Chest hemorrhages were considered to be complex diseases in the medical world. However, the power and authority that Si Yiyan possessed allowed him to save his own life. Even wealthy families like the Wen Family would not be able to solve such an issue.
Yeah! Ever since Si Yiyan’s family was wrecked, he turned from a timid and cowardly crybaby to a shrewd, powerful and formidable man. He had braved all odds and overcome power struggles in order to earn the power and respect that he now commanded, gaining the rights to helm Lucifer. The hardship that he had gone through reminded him of the torment he had to go through. He was cautious and often had close shaves with deaths.
Si Yiyan nodded and said, “The doctor said that I’m already alright.”
Wen Xinya felt relieved to see that he indeed looked mcuh better after regaining his consciousness. “Si Yiyan, from now on, you’re not allowed to hide anything from me. All of you belongs to me, including your body. You must let me know what your health condition is like. I can only know how to use your body after I understand its functions and uses.”
Si Yiyan chuckled and teased. “Don’t you already understand my body’s abilities?”
Wen Xinya pushed him and chided. “Lecher.”
Si Yiyan did not continue teasing her and instead stared at her pale face and the sweat droplets on her forehead. Knowing that she was definitely in pain, he asked, “Does your head hurt really badly?”
Wen Xinya answered with a nod, “The pain is making me queasy.”
Due to the intense crying session that she just had, her head began to hurt again and she began to find it unbearable.
Taking pity on her, Si Yiyan said, “I’ll help you massage it.”
Wen Xinya grabbed his arm and exclaimed, “There are still tubes attached to you!”
Si Yiyan said nonchalantly, “I’ll get the doctor to come here and remove them. Afterward, I’ll give you a massage. I’ve learned a special technique that will help relieve headaches and improve sleep quality.”
Feeling a little worried, Wen Xinya asked, “Will you be alright after the tubes are removed?”
Si Yiyan answered, “The air and blood clots have already been drained. The tubes were attached to my body, mainly because observations had to be made after I come to my senses.”
Wen Xinya nodded, feeling a great sense of relief.
