Chapter 280 – Xiao Qiao, Please Don’t Leave Me (10)
At the hospital.
Qiao Lian eyes were completely red as she stood by the bedside.
Shen Liangchuan was lying there with his eyes closed.
His pale face was expressionless. His arm had been bandaged. The doctor beside him was still saying, “It is crucial that the patient gets enough rest. How could he leave the house while he was still running a high fever?”
But Qiao Lian could not process what he was saying.
Her gaze was fixed on Shen Liangchuan, while her face was pale with shock.
She would have never imagined that when she was being taken hostage by the thug, the person who would emerge to save her would actually be Shen Liangchuan.
He was clearly running a high fever. Why had he been in the wilderness?
And since he was clearly running a high fever, why would he rush out to save her?
Moreover even when he was injured, he hadn’t first thought about himself, instead he had told her to run away fast, possibly fearing that the thug would injure her.
Tears brimmed in her eyes, but since she was trying hard to resist them, they did not flow out.
Her hand was still subconsciously holding his uninjured hand. A certain kind of unknown emotion slowly gathered in her heart.
All the anger she had felt disappeared at this moment.
At this instant, she only had one thought in her mind. She wished that he would get well soon and that he could open his eyes.
The door to the ward was pushed open. Song Yuanxi walked over in shock. When she was in front of the two of them, she bit her lips while looking at Qiao Lian. After a while, she finally said, “After you left this morning, Brother Liangchuan followed you in his car. He was about to recover but he didn’t recuperate enough, that’s why his fever returned.”
He had followed her in his car…
He had been following her since that morning. Did it mean that he had been following her for the whole day?
If not, it would not have been possible for him to reach her on time.
But… why had he followed her?
A thought flashed through her mind, which astonished and startled her as she looked at the man on the bed. She really did not know what she should do with him.
Half an hour later, Shen Liangchuan’s fever subsided. The doctor announced that he was fine now.
But Qiao Lian still sat there with a blank look on her face.
Song Yuanxi reminded her, “Sister-in-law, you don’t look good like this… You should go wash up first.”
When Qiao Lian heard this, she looked down and realized that her clothes were a mess and there were also bloodstains on her.
Shen Liangchuan had always loved to be clean. How would he stand it if he were to wake up seeing her so dirty?
When Qiao Lian thought of this, she nodded and stood up.
She decided to go to the bathroom, but she recalled that she did not have a new set of clothes to change into. She then suddenly also remembered that perhaps Qiao Yi was still waiting at home for her to have dinner together.
She simply headed out and said, “I will go home for a moment.”
Qiao Lian hurriedly hailed a cab to go home, where she took a hot shower.
Her whole being seemed to have finally come back to life.
Even though her hair had not been fully blow-dried yet, she changed into a new pair of clothes and headed out in a rush.
Only two hours had passed by the time she returned to the hospital.
After rushing to the ward, when she was about to open the door to enter, she heard Song Cheng’s voice. “Brother Shen, my Brother Shen! Why can’t you just take time to recuperate? You- you- The filming for ‘Ambition’ will start very soon and you’ll be entering the filming set soon. And something had to happen to you at a time like this… Ugh!”
Shen Liangchuan waited for him to finish speaking before he said nonchalantly, “A small injury like this will not affect the progress of the filming crew.”
Song Cheng sighed and replied, “We can talk about this again, but only when your wound has totally healed. But regarding today’s incident, I have already reported it to the police. The police have caught the thug and after the inquiry, he said…”
