Chapter 30: I’ve Gotten Used to Her Poor Sleeping Posture
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Gu Jingze’s heart thumped as he looked at her lips. They had a perfect shape and were moist and soft like the wet and red flesh of fruit. However, they also seemed to carry a hint of seduction.
He turned his head and gently moved closer.
However, just as he inched closer, her pair of big eyes that had been tranquil suddenly opened.
His aloof face froze there and then as he looked at Lin Che’s glazed eyes.
At that moment, she felt that the distance before her eyes was a little ambiguous. In turn, she rubbed her eyes in a daze.
The effect of the medication had also robbed her of her rationality.
“You…” As she looked at his sensual and perky lips before her eyes, she felt her heart itch.
“Sleep properly.” He let out a dry cough and stretched his hand out to cover her eyes.
Soon after, her breathing evened out again.
On the other hand, Gu Jingze turned his head away and did not glance at the woman beside him again.
But when he closed his eyes once again, he could still feel her arm attacking his chest.
He frowned but he seemed to have gradually gotten used to her occasional attacks. He soon went straight to sleep.
On the second day, Gu Jingze was already long gone when Lin Che woke up.
It was only when she was done washing up that Gu Jingze brought breakfast over.
Lin Che’s thigh no longer hurt and accordingly, her mood also took a turn for the better. She looked at Gu Jingze and said, “Just like I told you, it’s definitely possible to sleep like we did last night. Look at how much sharper you look.”
Gu Jingze merely glanced at her silently. He did not talk about how he had found her sprawled across his body when he woke up in the morning and how she had drooled on his neck.
Just the thought of that made him feel an itch on his neck.
Very soon after, the doctor came to change Lin Che’s bandages again. Looking at her wound, it seemed to have gotten much better. However, the scar was still hideous and Gu Jingze continued wearing an unpleasant expression.
“Doctor, when will my wife’s thigh recover completely?”
The doctor heard Gu Jingze’s low voice as he asked this and quickly said, “This will need…”
Before he could respond, Gu Jingze’s cell phone started ringing.
Gu Jingze took a look. It was Mo Huiling.
Still waiting to hear the doctor’s response, he rejected the call.
Sensing the situation, the doctor continued, “This is…”
But right at that moment, his cell phone started ringing again.
Gu Jingze looked at his cell phone a little impatiently. Mo Huiling’s name kept flashing on the screen. At the side, Lin Che lifted her head and said, “Gu Jingze, pick up the call first and we’ll discuss it later.”
Gu Jingze’s face tensed. He glanced at Lin Che before reluctantly turning away and walking out while holding his phone.
He picked up the phone, his impatience showing slightly in his voice. “Huiling, is something the matter?”
Mo Huiling pouted playfully through the phone and said, “Why did you reject my call earlier?”
Gu Jingze was still mulling over the doctor’s words and said into the phone, “I was busy just now. Why?”
Mo Huiling said, “You didn’t come to celebrate my birthday and after that, you didn’t care about me either. Jingze, what exactly is up with you?”
Gu Jingze recalled the day of her birthday. Because of the car accident that happened that day, he did not meet her and thereafter, he was busy attending to Lin Che’s injury.
“I’ve just gotten busier recently.” Because the accident had not been made publicly known, Gu Jingze did not tell Mo Huiling either.
“Now that I’m ill, won’t you come and visit me too?” Mo Huiling whined.
“You’re ill?” Gu Jingze asked.
Mo Huiling choked back a sob and said, “I want you to come and keep me company. I don’t care what you’re busy with. Jingze, if you don’t come to see me, I definitely won’t get better. Right now, I feel like I’m about to die soon.”
Was it actually that severe? To the point that she was about to die?
After Gu Jingze returned to the ward, he said to Lin Che, “Something happened to Huiling. I have to go over and take a look.”
Lin Che spaced out. She looked at him and nodded her head. “Oh, go ahead. There are so many people watching over me here. Nothing will happen anyway.”
Gu Jingze nodded and glanced at her meaningfully before walking over to her. He reached his hand out to tuck her into the blanket and positioned her exposed leg properly.
“I’ll call someone to look after you. You move too much when you sleep. Make sure not to touch your wound,” he said.
Lin Che said in surprise, “When did I move in my sleep?”
What happened last night came to Gu Jingze’s mind. He snorted to her and said, “You say you didn’t move when you nearly flew to heaven. In any case, be a little more careful. Don’t be so restless. If it starts to bleed again, your leg will be good for nothing.”
“Okay, stop nagging. Quick, go look for Miss Mo. Doesn’t she have some urgent matter?”
After thinking, Gu Jingze agreed with what she had said. He nodded his head and went out.
He reached Mo Huiling’s house after driving for only half an hour.
Mo Huiling’s room was like a princess’s room. She lay swaddled in her blanket as she listened to the noises outside.
When she vaguely heard the sound of a car, she quickly looked at her clothes.
Gu Jingze walked in very soon after only to see Mo Huiling lying on the bed with half of her body exposed. Although she said she was ill, there was actually still make-up on her face while she laid in bed. Under the blanket, her silk night clothing covered her only slightly. She cast soft glances at him—ones that were as soft as silk—making her look extremely enchanting.
Gu Jingze blanked out. He looked at her as she lay there and softly hummed. She said, “Jingze if you didn’t come quickly, you wouldn’t have been able to see me anymore.”
Gu Jingze walked over hurriedly. “How did you fall ill when you were completely fine?”
With the knowledge that he was coming, Mo Huiling had especially gotten someone to tidy up the room. She sprayed on a fresh-smelling perfume and also personally selected a sexy nightgown. Her freshly-bathed body carried some tenderness and loveliness with it. She looked at him gently and said grudgingly, “I don’t know. I only know that on the day you didn’t come, I cried the whole night. After that, I couldn’t eat anything too. I called numerous doctors to come over, but all of them didn’t know what was wrong. I thought I was dying.”
How was she about to die?
Lin Che was the one who almost died.
Gu Jingze could not help but think of Lin Che. As he looked at Mo Huiling, he was slightly angry. “Huiling, I didn’t go to your birthday party that day because something cropped up suddenly on my end. I really could not leave. Furthermore, it was a matter of life and death. I had no time to spare on other matters which includes this very instance of you suddenly calling for me to come. I really shouldn’t have come at all. It’s only because you said you’re ill.”
How was she really ill?
He felt that Mo Huiling was truly too thoughtless this time.
Mo Huiling took a glance; Gu Jingze was actually really angry.
In the past, he could never even bear to say a single heavy-handed word to her.
She did not feel that this had anything to do with Lin Che either. Her eyes darted around as she figured that the matter he had to deal with must have been a very serious matter, which was why he was this angry.
She burst out crying immediately. With tears running down her face, she quickly said to him, “Jingze, I had no idea if something had happened to you. I was just too worried about you. I love you too much. That’s why I was also very upset. You could have told me if something was up. However, you aren’t even aware that I cried the entire night that day. I kept calling your number, but none of my calls got through.”
He watched as Mo Huiling started crying sadly. Her words were indeed moving and Gu Jingze’s heart softened. He lowered his voice and said to her, “Alright, sorry Huiling. I spoke too severely because I was too anxious. It was I who didn’t handle things properly that day and made you worry.”
Mo Huiling was still crying relentlessly.
Gu Jingze could only pat her shoulder. “Alright, Huiling. I truly apologize.”
Upon hearing his sincere apology, Mo Huiling thought to herself, As expected, he still could not bear for her to cry.
She bit her bottom lip and said wretchedly, “As long as you know.”
