Within two steps, Gu Yu was beside her bed. He looked down at Xu Weilai, who was fast asleep. Her face was unusually red. Sitting down, he reached his hand out to feel her forehead. It was severely hot!
His eyes darkened as he touched her face and her body. Her skin was scorching to the touch. Even her breath seemed hot.
She was running a high fever!
Gu Yu patted her cheeks as he called out to her, “Xu Weilai, wake up.”
He called to her a few times. Xu Weilai’s eyelids fluttered open imperceptibly before falling shut again. As her brows were knitted tightly together, cold sweat poured out of her forehead. She appeared to be in immense discomfort.
Seeing that she had already lost consciousness from her high fever, Gu Yu didn’t bother to call her again. He reached out to scooped her up in his arms. The moment he touched her, however, she suddenly began to struggle. Tears streamed out of her eyes as she croaked weakly, “It hurts… so much…”
The man stopped himself from acting further.
Xu Weilai rolled out of his arms to the other side of the bed. Without her blanket to cover her, Gu Yu saw that the hem of her nightdress had ridden up, exposing the red mark on her thigh that had turned into a fierce shade of purple.
Gu Yu narrowed his eyes as he reached out to grab Xu Weilai’s wrist. He turned it over gently as his other hand stripped her of her nightdress. The red marks on her body, like the one on her thigh, had turned into purple as well. It was obvious that she had been bruised by severe blows. Along with the additional love-bites that he had left on her smooth and creamy skin, her wounds were horrifying to look at.
As his breathing grew heavy, he felt as if he had been punched in the gut. The pain slowly radiated from within.
As Gu Yu clenched his fists, the veins on the back of his hands bulged. He closed his eyes and calmed himself down before getting up and taking his cell phone out to call his assistant.
The assistant hurriedly drove over. Gu Yu wrapped Xu Weilai up in his overcoat and carried her down from the apartment. He gingerly put her in the backseat before getting in behind her. He scooped Xu Weilai into his arms again and had her lean on him.
The assistant’s eyes widened when he saw how weak Xu Weilai looked. As he drove, he couldn’t help but wonder to himself if his Boss tormented Xu Weilai this badly! If so, then he was taking it way too far! In that case, he would slowly lose his admiration towards his Boss!
Before arriving at the hospital, the assistant had already made a few calls to ensure the VIP ward was prepared.
Gu Yu carried Xu Weilai into the hospital room and personally wiped her down. He changed her into the hospital gown, laid her down onto the bed, and covered her with the blanket before permitting the doctor to look at her.
The doctor told him that her pain was from the fact that she hadn’t tended to her fever that had resulted from her flu in time. As the fever lingered over the course of a few days, her body temperature sharply rose, causing her skin to be especially sensitive to the bruises.
The assistant at the side witnessed the bruises on Xu Weilai’s body. The sight of them alone was enough for him to feel the pain. How much worse could it get for the delicate and weak Xu Weilai? He couldn’t help but sneak a peek at his boss.
Gu Yu stood there with an ominous look on his face. His lips were pressed into a thin line, and an emotion akin to heartache briefly flashed in his eyes. It was too soon for the assistant to tell if his boss did care for his wife…
When the doctor applied acupuncture to Xu Weilai, she thrashed around in pain and refused to cooperate. Eventually, Gu Yu stepped forward without showing an ounce of emotion and embraced her to keep her in place.
Xu Weilai couldn’t move her hand anymore. Leaning her cheek against Gu Yu’s neck, she opened her mouth wide and discourteously bit down hard on his neck.
