Chapter 295: Her Love For Him Had Become an Instinct (1)
The sudden rush of light forced her to subconsciously squint. Only after a long while when she had finally adjusted to the glare did her dark eyes move across her surroundings stiffly. She recognized that she was in a hospital ward.
The next moment, she realized that her hand was tightly grasped, just as it had been in her dream. Was it Gu Yu?
With much difficulty, Xu Weilai turned her head to the side and looked over at the sleeping figure that was slumped forward on her bed. Her eyes took a double-take in disbelief.
It wasn't Gu Yu…
The person staying by her side and holding her hand was Xiao Chun!
The words she had heard while passed out had merely been of her imagination…
She hadn't expected that the wish hiding within the deepest recesses of her heart was to hear Gu Yu tell her that he had let everything in the past go. She never imagined that he would say that they could live together in bliss.
Did that mean that she still harbored a vain hope towards Gu Yu?
At that moment, Xu Weilai couldn't identify what was going through her mind. She stared blankly at the white ceiling overhead.
A short while, Xiao Chun awakened. When she looked up and saw that Xu Weilai's eyes were open, she was stunned for a moment before her eyes filled up with excitement and joy. "Little Weilai! You're awake!" she exclaimed.
Her voice brought Xu Weilai's attention back to the present. As she slowly met Xiao Chun's eyes, she forced a smile out onto her face with much difficulty.
Xiao Chun's eyes turned red immediately as she roared in faux anger, "Xu Weilai, you scared me to death! Have you any idea how scared I was? You were unconscious for five days! The doctor even said that if you didn't wake up soon, you might never wake up again!"
Xu Weilai was a little surprised. After all, time passed at a much faster pace in her dream; time flew by in the blink of an eye. She never expected that so much time had already passed in reality!
Looking at Xiao Chun's haggard face, Xu Weilai's whispered hoarsely, "I'm the wildest brat in the capital. The devil didn't dare allow me to pass through the gates of Hell!"
Xiao Chun had been about to cry, but hearing what Xu Weilai had said caused her to burst out laughing instead. Her expression became a silly-looking cross between a laugh and a cry.
She wiped off her tears and didn't speak further for a while. Instead, she strode out of the room to notify the doctor. The doctor rushed over quickly to examine Xu Weilai.
After conducting a series of examinations, the doctor was finally able to release the tension that he had been plagued with over the past few days. At that thought of the death stare that Gu Yu had leveled on him repeatedly this entire time, he suddenly felt as if he had avoided a tragedy.
After quietly heaving a sigh of relief, she looked at Xu Weilai and said, "You're out of danger now, but your body is still very weak. You'll have to stay in bed for some time to recover. Try not to move about."
He continued his instruction to Xu Weilai, "Remember to remain calm at all times and avoid fluctuations in your mood. If you experience any discomfort in your wound, notify us immediately. Do not endure it on your own."
Xu Weilai nodded her head. "Thank you, Doctor," she said.
After the doctor and the nurses exited the room, Xiao Chun poured Xu Weilai a glass of warm water. She placed a straw in the glass and held it out to her lips for her to drink.
Observing Xu Weilai's pale complexion, Xiao Chun's eyes filled up with intense pain. She remarked, "Little Weilai, are you stupid? Why did you run out to block that knife? It was a knife! What if you could never wake up again? Were you just going to abandon us all like that?"
Of course she knew it had been a knife! She valued her life so much, yet she wasn't stupid enough to use her body to shield someone from a knife.
However… her instincts had overridden her sense of survival and had prohibited any hesitation!
