(Have You Been Taking This Medicine (8)

Without a second thought, Gu Yusheng ran to the washroom. After pushing open the door, the first thing he saw was Qin Zhi’ai, who was standing beside the wash basin.

Gu Yusheng’s act of opening the door had been a bit violent, so it had disturbed Qin Zhi’ai. She turned her head and looked to see who it was. However, just as she had turned halfway and hadn’t seen him clearly yet, she felt her stomach rolling again, so she hurriedly turned back and vomited in the toilet.

After waiting at the door of the washroom for a while, Gu Yusheng suddenly went up to Qin Zhi’ai. Holding her shoulder, he asked with worry and care, “What’s wrong with you? Are you not feeling well?”

After hearing Gu Yusheng’s voice, Qin Zhi’ai trembled a little. She wanted to tell Gu Yusheng “I’m okay,” but as she began speaking, she vomited again with a mouthful of bile.

Patting Qin Zhi’ai softly on the back, Gu Yusheng took out his cell phone from his pocket and looked up Doctor Xia’s number quickly.

Hearing the sound of him tapping on the cell phone’s keyboard, Qin Zhi’ai raised her head and glanced at him through the brightly lit and broad mirror in front of her. She guessed that he might have been calling doctor for her. Therefore, as she endured the nausea, she raised her hand and held the phone in Gu Yusheng’s hands with all her effort. “Don’t call the doctor…”

Without being able to utter the following word, Qin Zhi’ai lowered her head again and retched.

“You’re vomiting so much. You have to be checked over by the doctor.” Gu Yusheng increased his force to take the phone back from Qin Zhi’ai. When he was just preparing to call Doctor Xia, out of the corner of his eye, he suddenly saw she had another transparent medicine bottle in her other hand on the counter.

Gu Yusheng stopped his movments to make the phone call and asked her, “Have you already seen a doctor?” Then he reached out to take the bottle in Qin Zhi’ai’s hand.

“Is this the medicine the doctor prescribed for you? Did the doctor tell you what was wrong with you? Why didn’t you tell me that you didn’t feel well…” Gu Yusheng suddenly stopped his words, because he saw the word “contraceptives” printed clearly on the bottle in his hand.

Gu Yusheng stared at the medicine bottle without any reaction for a long time, as if he couldn’t read the word.

Not feeling as sick to her stomach after some time, Qin Zhi’ai took a few deep breaths with her eyes closed. Then she turned on the tap and filled a glass with water.

The sound of the water gushing out of the tap woke up Gu Yusheng, who was standing to the side. He rolled his eyes slowly around the word “contraceptives” and then through the glass bottle, saw there were only a few pills left inside. He seemed to think of something and looked at Qin Zhi’ai, who was gargling. “Have you been taking this medicine?”

Qin Zhi’ai paused in the middle of raising the cup of water. With her side facing Gu Yusheng, she didn’t look at him. After a while, it seemed like nothing had happened, her putting the cup on the side and nodding, “Yes.”

She took two towels and wiped away the water droplets on her lips. Then she smashed the paper towel into the trash can. She turned around and saw Gu Yusheng still standing there. Thinking for a while, she explained, “I know that you may not want to have a child, and you haven’t used any contraceptives, so I’ve been taking medicine all this time.”

If he wants to have a child, he would not have let the housekeeper give me contraceptives after the first night.
