She carefully took it in her mouth and swallowed. Warmth instantly spread to her entire body; she did not feel that cold anymore.
He repeated his actions until there was half a bowl of porridge left. “I’m full. I can’t eat any more.”
“Just eat a little more,” he patiently coaxed.
Unable to resist him, she ate a few more mouthfuls of the porridge.
She had a small appetite in the first place. Once she was full, she lay down gently in the bed.
The man got to his feet and went to the bathroom. After he was done washing up, he walked to the bed. “I’m heading to the office now to settle something. Have a good rest and wait for my return!”
“You’re going to the office?” She was somewhat dissatisfied. “Is there something very important?”
“Yes, it’s very important.”
There were some scores that he naturally wanted to settle with that person properly.
She asked, “Then, when are you coming back?”
“I’ll be back once I’m done.”
She pouted at his answer, which was as good as saying nothing.
Nonetheless, she made no protest anymore and smiled obediently in bed. “I’ll wait for you.”
After he smoothed the creases on the blanket for her, he turned and left.
Darkness consumed him and he passed out immediately after.
In his state of grogginess, he felt an inexplicable heat; it was so hot that his entire body was boiling. His chest seemed to be burned by something and it hurt.
When Youyou woke up from his delirium, he was a little confused about his whereabouts. The pain in his head was getting clearer and more severe; it seemed to remind him that he was still alive.
After a long period of darkness, when he finally opened his eyes again, it was because of a little hand groping his face.
When he woke up and peeled open his eyelids, he saw a small light brown hand lightly lifting his eyelashes.
“Wah! Ah pa, this big brother’s eyelashes are really pretty! It’s so long, just like a beautiful fan!”
A tender and soft voice rang.
His brows furrowed slightly as he tried to open his eyes slightly. His vision was still a blur, though.
“Lingling, big brother is injured. You go outside and don’t disturb his rest!”
“But, ah pa, Lingling isn’t disturbing his rest!”
“Ah pa, ah pa, why is his skin so fair like the city kids? Also, big brother is so good-looking. He’s more handsome than that Huzi in the village!”
Youyou’s heart clenched. His eyes widened the moment he turned his head over and met a little girl’s strangely surprised eyes.
The girl was startled at first. She then rushed over, held up his face, and took a look at him.
His eyes widened in shock.
Seeing that he had woken up, her face lit up with joy at once.
“Ah pa, big brother is awake! Big brother is awake!”
She ran away while happily waving her hands in the air.
He sat up from the bed, but because his movement was too big, it tugged on the wound in his arm.
He hissed in pain as his trembling hand gentle covered his arm. He surveyed his surroundings. What came into view was a slightly outdated folk hut.
From his observations, it gave off the feeling of a family in a small village; whitewashed walls, wooden ceiling, simple wooden furniture, and a cabinet with a CRT television.
