He then embraced her tightly while kissing her forehead firmly—it was getting warmer as time went by.
Her eyes were half opened, still mumbling about how she was cold, about her sister, about missing her parents; about how she had thought that he was not important to her anymore earlier on, but the moment she heard that he was involved in an accident, she felt as though her entire soul was ripped apart…
When he heard about her concerns, his heart wrenched tightly. Clearly, she was in a daze over her fever right now. The reason why she was rambling on non-stop was to stop herself from losing consciousness.
He cupped her warm face and moved over to the back of her neck. “Don’t speak anymore. Just rest properly now. There’ll most likely be people coming for us soon. You’ll feel better once you sleep.”
“I’m not feeling terrible, just a little cold,” She closed her eyes slowly. However, there was no way she could relax given the circumstances they were in. She struggled to preserve her energy and remained in that half-awake state. “As long as you’re around, I won’t feel terrible.”
He kissed her on the forehead and moved down onto her lips. Immediately, she curled her arms around his neck and kissed him back tenderly.
After that kiss was over, he looked at her face and had a shock—she was so red that blood could almost drip forth from her face!
How was this fever so sudden and rapid! Was this the result of her body resisting it previously when she was fully stressed over him, and finally everything was breaking out now that she could be at ease slightly?
His heart pounded furiously as he called out for her, “Littly…”
Even though her fever was this severe, she maintained her consciousness and squinted her eyes slightly, smiling at him. “I’m here.”
Lu Yanchen took the first aid kit she had left beside them over and flipped through the medicine within. Even though there was no medicine for fever within, he took out an antibiotic within and popped it into her mouth just to be sure.
Shi Guang wanted to spit it out right away, and he had no choice but to grip her jaw and force it down.
“You won’t feel cold after eating this.” He shifted their positions and had her face the fire closer. However, the fire was about to be extinguished, and a drizzle had started once more.
Following the drizzle, the mountains quaked a little and the ground and mud loosened, seemingly moving again…
Lu Yanchen looked at Shi Guang and lamented in his heart that Chief Lu’s rescue operation was way too slow this time around.
Why was there no helicopter even after so long?
He took the only shirt he was wearing off his body and held it up to provide shelter for Shi Guang. However, it didn’t seem to help much as the rain still poured onto her.
In her daze, she opened her eyes and tried sitting up with all her remaining strength. “It’s raining again.” She then pushed his shirt to him. “Hurry and wear it!”
“No,” He did not wear it and covered it over her body instead, pulling her into his embrace. “Come into my arms. There’s no wind here.”
“Of course, there’s no wind since you’re blocking it all. Actually, I’m fine.” She sprawled onto his leg and caught sight of the area that was still swollen. Thankfully, it hadn’t gotten worse.
She then looked around at their surroundings—it was murky black as though all sorts of beasts and creatures could pop out at any time. “This place doesn’t seem right. It looks as though it’s going to slide down soon. We had better move up further.”
With that, she struggled to stand up in her wobbly manner. She then turned around to look at Lu Yanchen while smiling.
Suddenly, everything turned black before her, and the last thing she heard before losing consciousness was him shouting, “SHI GUANG!”
