(Wait for Me to Rouse (7)
“Wait for me to rouse. After I wake up, I will immediately come to Hangzhou to see you. I will tell you everything then that I can’t tell you right now in detail.
“Please, wait for me to rouse, please.
“I will definitely wake up, for you.”
Gu Yusheng wanted to repeat the last two words one more time, but he had no strength left in him. He moved his lips at Qin Zhi’ai, but no more sound came out. He gave her a weak smile.
She suddenly could not feel any grip from him, and his hand dropped to the ground. His blinked once before his eyes softly closed, and he fell into a deep coma.
Qin Zhi’ai’s heart jumped, and she subconsciously grabbed Gu Yusheng’s hand again; however, no matter how hard she squeezed his hand, he moved neither his brows nor his fingers like he had before.
Qin Zhi’ai cried again to the point she could not speak in full sentences.
An ambulance parked next to Gu Yusheng, and two doctors in white uniforms jumped off the ambulance and ran to Gu Yusheng.
Qin Zhi’ai did go back to Hangzhou.
She didn’t go back because Gu Yusheng had told her to. She was worried about Gu Yusheng to the point that she had jumped into the ambulance to be by his side. She wanted to stay in Beijing with him. Even if she couldn’t be in his room with him, she would stay in the outpatient building to be close to him.
Once they had arrived at the hospital, though, her abdomen had begun to hurt after Gu Yusheng had been wheeled into surgery.
She went to the restroom to check on herself and discovered a patch of blood on her underwear. She was so frightened that she almost fainted in the restroom. A young nurse in the restroom saw her briefly stumble and her pale face and immediately helped Qin Zhi’ai to a gynecologist.
The terrifying emotions she’d experienced that day had resulted in complications with her pregnancy—namely, she showed signs of having a miscarriage.
After a thorough examination, the gynecologist gave her an injection and some medication to alleviate her symptoms. Before he allowed her to leave, however, he warned her repeatedly to rest in bed.
Qin Zhi’ai then went to the floor where Gu Yusheng had gone for surgery. She had called Xiaowang and Lu Bancheng when she had been in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. She saw them in front of the surgery room doors as she walked out of the elevator.
But she also saw a person who she wanted to see least at this moment—Liang Doukou.
Qin Zhi’ai had thought Liang Doukou might be in Old Master Gu’s room with either Xiaowang or Lu Bancheng when she had called them. And apparently she had been as now she was here to see what had happened to Gu Yusheng.
Gu Yusheng was still in surgery, and the three of them were waiting impatiently outside of the surgery room doors.
Qin Zhi’ai was suddenly exhausted from the day’s events, but primarily by the shock of Gu Yusheng almost dying and now the potential for a confrontation with Liang Doukou. After considering this near the elevator, she quickly returned to it, went downstairs, and left the hospital before any of them noticed her. She took a taxi back to her and Xu Wennuan’s empty apartment.
After a sound sleep over night, Qin Zhi’ai felt a lot better the next morning.
Because of her miscarriage scare, she resolved to be careful and follow the doctor’s orders. She needed to eat good meals every day, which was difficult in Beijing. To alleviate her worries about her baby, she booked a train ticket back to Hangzhou for that same day.
