Chapter 233: The Pain Came in and Lingered for a Moment
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Gu Mian saw the woman who had just walked in, she furrowed her eyebrows a little. There was gauze on Lan Qingcheng’s neck and she was in a hospital gown. Her face looked extremely pale.
But Gu Mian was well aware that the woman merely sustained superficial wounds. Her injury was nothing compared to that of Su Qianxun’s.
‘If it weren’t for the fact that Qianxun was in luck this time, that cut could have severed her artery, and she could have been dead by now!’
“Miss Su, you’re awake. How are you feeling now?” Lan Qingcheng walked to the side of the bed. She seemed anxious.
Su Qianxun tried to sit up. When Gu Mian saw that, she immediately helped Su Qianxun up. She then took a blanket and placed it behind Su Qianxun so that she could lean against it.
“I am all right. Thank you for your concern, Miss Lan.” Su Qianxun’s lips were very pale due to excessive blood loss. Even her black eyes had gone dim.
“I’m glad that you’re all right. What just happened really scared me out of my wits. Thankfully both of us are safe and sound now. Please don’t blame Jue, he was just very worried about me. He knows that I’m extremely afraid of snakes.” Lan Qingcheng wore a shy expression as she said this.
When Su Qianxun recalled the moment Long Sijue chose Lan Qingcheng without the slightest hesitation, she felt as if her heart was being sliced open by a knife. The pain came in and lingered for a moment.
She suddenly smiled self-deprecatingly. ‘Why am I so worked up over this? Isn’t it normal for Long Sijue to choose to save his fiancee?
‘Under such circumstances, of course my life wouldn’t be as important as that of his fiancee’s!’
But whenever the young woman thought about how she was almost pushed into the pit full of venomous snakes, she could not keep her cool at all. ‘No matter how unimportant I am to him, how can he not have the slightest regard for my life…”
“Miss Lan, Qianxun’s injury is pretty serious, and she needs to rest. It would be best for you not to stay here and chat with her. Why don’t you take your leave first?” Gu Mian sneered internally. This woman obviously did not mean well.
‘Is she here to show off in front of Qianxun?
‘We don’t even know what’s on Long Sijue’s mind!’
“All right then, do rest well, Miss Su. I’ll come and visit you whenever I’m free. After she said that, Lan Qingcheng flashed a smile, turned around and left.
When Gu Mian saw how soulless Su Qianxun’s gaze was, she felt an ache in her heart. She held Su Qianxun’s hand. “Qianxun, don’t listen to her. We don’t even know what’s on Sir Jue’s mind.”
“Mian Mian, I’m feeling a little tired. I want to sleep a little longer. Can you stay and accompany me? I’m scared of being alone.” Su Qianxun’s eyes reddened. She was truly in fear.
Lan Qingcheng was extremely afraid of snakes, but snakes were her most feared creature as well.
“All right, I’ll stay and accompany you. Don’t worry, go to sleep.” Gu Mian extended her hand and gently caressed Su Qianxun’s face. She helped Su Qianxun to lay back down on the bed.
The moment she exited the ward, Lan Qingcheng’s gaze turned ice cold. She grabbed her long hair that dangled before her chest and sneered. ‘Who does this little sl*t think she is? How dare she try to snatch my man away from me? She is really biting off more than she can chew!’
“No,no. Help, help me. Argh!” Su Qianxun suddenly let out a shrill scream. She opened her eyes abruptly. Her black eyes were full of fear.
Su Qianxun felt a large hand on her forehead. She turned and saw that Long Sijue was sitting right by her bed. When she saw him, she was reminded of how cold he was and the way he chose Lan Qincheng without hesitation. The young woman immediately turned away, refusing to look at him.
“Get up and take your medicine.” Long Sijue’s voice sounded a little husky. He extended his hand to pull her up.
“Let me go! Just leave me be!” Su Qianxun suddenly pushed him.
Long Sijue furrowed his eyebrows a little and let her go for real. He gazed at her pale, small face as he sat beside her bed.
