Yichen shook his head. He was clearly the one hurt, yet he ended up comforting her, instead. "Don't worry; it doesn't hurt!"
"How could it not hurt? Let me look at it." Not listening to his protest, she gingerly held his hand, and indeed, his elbow was dislocated and out of shape.
She was so agonized her fingertips could not stop trembling. With her voice slightly stuck in her throat, she lamented, "It must be very painful!"
Recalling that unnerving scene of the Ferris wheel ceasing operation and Youyou's body dangling outside the suspended capsule several meters above the ground, if it had not been for Yichen holding his arm tenaciously and firmly, grim possibilities would have been awaiting the two!
The capsule was so far above the ground it was just like being on the 20th floor of a building. What if they had fallen earlier? Certainly, they would have plummeted to their deaths!
She had almost lost the two of them…
When met with a crisis, she could do nothing other than looking on and letting her imagination run wild. She was still unable to get over that frightening scene and thought of it again and again.
"Thank you for saving Youyou. Thank you." Her gratitude toward this child was heartfelt. She was in so much pain that tears pooled in her eyes as she hugged the unkempt children.
Yichen was a little affected when he realized that her eyes were wet. His mouth pried apart; he had the strong urge to shout that heart-warming yet unfamiliar word, yet he barely managed to slur out a few syllables in the end. In fact, he was already calling out to her repeatedly in his heart. Mommy… mommy…
He felt strange!
The woman before him was clearly a stranger, yet he felt this magical and special connection to her – a bond between a mother and a son.
Even though he was not by her side for the last six years, facing her now, he felt a familiarity surge irrepressibly from within him.
She could provide the warmth that Mu Wanrou could not give him.
However, bounded by what he had known all along, he was unable to yell out that word easily.
Even so, he greedily yearned for this warmth!
The ambulance promptly arrived.
The two children were carried out on stretchers and carefully loaded into the waiting ambulance. She followed them into the vehicle.
On the way to the hospital, the nurses ran a few tests on them. Sitting at the side, Yun Shishi's heart wrenched at their current state, and she constantly inquired about the two children's condition.
A nurse immediately comforted her with the results of the preliminary tests, which stated that the children's conditions were not grave. Still, everything else would have to wait when they reached the hospital, where more detailed inspections could be performed on the two children.
The nurse also pointed out that, except for their dislocated arms, the two should be more or less fine since they were still quite energetic.
It was only then that Yun Shishi was somewhat pacified.
Feeling a little worn down, Youyou informed, "Mommy, Youyou is tired. Youyou wants to sleep for a while."
Yun Shishi's lips pulled into an upward curve as she stroked his head. "Mm! Close your eyes and have a rest. We will reach the hospital soon."
"Mommy, you must tell the doctors that Youyou has a fear of pain, so they must be gentle and not rough with me." The little boy reminded her sternly.
She was teased into tears and laughter by him. The nurse sitting beside her also chuckled at that. "Little one, don't worry; we'll be very gentle with you. Don't you worry!"
"That's a weight off my mind." His knitted brows relaxed as though a burden had been lifted off his shoulders.
His witty laments triggered smiles from the nurses once more.
"He's so cute. He looks so bright and his skin is so soft. He's really good-looking!"
"Yes, yes. When he grows up, he's going to be quite a looker. I'm afraid many girls will be charmed by him!"
