Chapter 1993: I am his family!
He peacefully shut his eyes upon hearing her voice.
Yun Shishi held his hands tightly in hers. Perhaps it was due to the excessive blood loss, but his hands were cold and clammy, completely devoid of warmth.
Her brows squeezed tightly with worry when she noticed this. All of a sudden, Hua Jin slowly opened his eyes again and swept a concerned look all over her.
“What’s the matter?” she probed at once, thinking that he needed something.
All that came out from him, however, was a hoarsely asked question: A-Are you… hurt?”
For a moment, she was choked speechless with emotions, then tears came pouring forth when she dropped her gaze to the startling patch of red on his abdomen.
The actress clenched her teeth in a bid to stop herself from sobbing aloud, but the thought of this man being in a critical state because of her sent heart-wrenching pain coursing through her.
Remorse, sadness, concern… and all sorts of emotions shot through her as bitter tears seeped in her mouth between the cracks on her lips.
“Why… Why would you do that?!”
The woman knew full well that the stab he had taken was already a very serious injury, yet for the sake of saving her, he crawled such a long distance, allowing his wound to come into friction with the coarse cement floor. It was second-degree harm inflicted on himself.
Furthermore, he had exerted so much strength in pulling her up to safety. His wound must have torn even further because of that.
On top of all these, having no idea how much force Mu Wanrou had used—if his crucial internal organs were hurt, she was nearly driven mad with worry.
God forbid; if anything should happen to the actor, she would truly be unable to forgive herself!
“Don’t cry. You look so stupid like this…”
Hua Jin laughed, his trademark playful smile emerging on his frail, pallid face before he casually remarked, “Actually… I don’t feel much pain at all. In fact, it’s like just getting bitten by a mosquito. What we see in movies are severely exaggerated. It isn’t that painful at all.”
His words infuriated the woman, for he could still so nonchalantly crack such a joke and make light of his situation when his life was in danger at the moment.
He had steeled himself to bear with the excruciating pain and joked around with her just to assuage her worries. His usually clear eyes were now dark and grey as he watched her, seemingly having something to say.
“Don’t worry, okay? I’ll be fine…”
“Stop joking around!”
God knows how worried and frightened I am now, yet he’s still in the mood to say this.
Despite her knowing that it was all for the sake of alleviating her sense of guilt and worries, she was still frustrated at him for spouting nonsense.
The cold beads of sweat accumulated on his forehead had silently betrayed him, revealing to her that he had been enduring the pain all this while.
It’s hurting him so much, yet he’s still telling me that he’s fine!
The doctor on duty, who had dozed off earlier, was startled awake by a loud commotion. He received quite a shock when he saw a group of people carrying a man with a bleeding abdomen into the infirmary and placing him on the sickbed.
Immediately, he went to prepare the equipment needed to stop the bleeding for the man.
“Excuse me; I’d like you all to step out for a bit.”
The actress was reluctant to step out and wanted to stay by the idol’s side. Seeing her being so persistent, the doctor asked, “Are you a family member, miss?”
“Yes!” she blurted out, firmly and with no hesitation.
Hua Jin, who was lying on the sickbed, opened his eyes. His eyelashes trembled a little as he stole a sideway glance at the woman.
