A welcomed evening breeze blew through the square, dispersing the dryness in the air.
Ji Qingying buried her head in Fu Yanzhi’s neck, taking deep breaths with a tinge of the disinfectant that lingered on his body, which had an inexplicable calming effect on her.#pleasereadthischapteratfoxaholic.com
When they were in the barbecue shop earlier, she had felt cold all over, but at this moment, only warmth remained.
Fu Yanzhi had this kind of magic effect on her.
As long as she could see this person and feel his breath, his mere presence could pull her out of any abyss.
He was born of light, akin to warm sunshine, that made her want to chase and embrace him.
Just seeing him made her believe that this world still had good in it.
The two continued their embrace for sometime before Fu Yanzhi gently patting her on the back, “Have you eaten your fill tonight”
Ji Qingying remained silent for a few seconds, before muttering, “No.”
She really hadn’t eaten much that night as her appetite had disappeared when she met Lin Xiaoshuang.
Fu Yanzhi lowered his head to kiss her on the cheek, “Then, how about eating together with me at home”
Ji Qingying chuckled and her lips curved up into a smile, “Okay.”
Fu Yanzhi held her hand as they walked to the parking lot.
Under the streetlights, the two’s shadows seemed to infinitely elongate and overlap, which evoked an indescribable warmth.
An ordinary day that was full of surprises.
Along the way, Fu Yanzhi decided to not ask her about what had happened.
The two had a tacit understanding of giving each other enough time to prepare.
Only when they want to speak, will they speak.
If they didn’t want to, then no one would force the issue.
Of course, even without saying anything, Fu Yanzhi would still manage to coax her into speaking.
When they got home, he asked her, “What would you like to eat”
Ji Qingying simply smiled as she looked up to him, “Didn’t you invite me to eat with you I’ll have whatever you’re having.”
Fu Yanzhi smiled before replying softly, “Hm, then let’s have some noodles.”
He proceeded to go to the kitchen to cook while Ji Qingying followed.
She leaned her body on Fu Yanzhi, akin to a kitten begging to be petted.
“Is there anything I can help with”
Fu Yanzhi looked at her, “Yes.”
Ji Qingying raised her eyebrows.
Fu Yanzhi grinned and just pointed his finger, “Just stay with me.”
Ji Qingying: “……”
She couldn’t stop herself from smiling before replying, “Okay then.
I’ll just stand right here and stay with you.”
The lights on the ceiling were bright and Ji Qingying really just stood there obedient and unmoving, silently accompanying Fu Yanzhi.
She observed Fu Yanzhi’s every move, and thought that everything he did was simply beautiful.
And after a while, the noodles were ready.
Ji Qingying helped portion the servings, while Fu Yanzhi even warmed up a glass of milk for her.
She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
She glanced at the balloon she had brought home, before looking at the warm milk in front of her.
This was too hilarious.
This man really treated her as a three-year-old kid!
But in front of him, she really was happy to be a giant baby.
After they’ve both finished their noodles, Fu Yanzhi then asked her to take a long, nice bath.
Ji Qingying went to the balcony first to water the flowers.
The flowers on the two jasmine plants had fallen off.
Out of nowhere, Fu Yanzhi appeared with a few more pots, placing them neatly on the black shelf, looking beautiful.
The breeze coming from Houhu lake was very pleasant.
Ji Qingying hummed while watering the flowers and just took her sweet time.
When she had finished watering from one to the other, Fu Yanzhi came over.
Hearing his approach, Ji Qingying looked up to him and asked, “When will this bloom”
“After a while.”
Ji Qingying queried, “Perhaps, by the time I come back from the competition”
Fu Yanzhi stretched out his hand, taking the thing she had in hers, before asking her gently, “Will it be longer this time”
Ji Qingying took the initiative to give him a warm embrace, “Fu Yanzhi.”
Fu Yanzhi lowered his head to look at her, softly replying, “I’m here.”
Ji Qingying wasn’t sure what she wanted say, only that she wanted to say something.
“Will you be busy at the hospital today”
“A little bit.” Fu Yanzhi replied, gently adding, “I’ve taken a special patient.”
Ji Qingying inquired, “Special”
Fu Yanzhi pondered his response before replying, “This patient had always stayed in a hospital.”
Ji Qingying looked at him inquisitively.
Fu Yanzhi explained, “It’s a grandpa.
He’s been staying at the hospital as another patient’s family member.”
“The grandma had an operation for myocardial infarction, so he’s been with her in the hospital…”
Ji Qingying continued to stare at him.
Pursing her lips, she asked, “And then”
“The grandma had already been discharged from the hospital not too long ago, but then problems suddenly showed in the grandpa’s body.” Fu Yanzhi lowered his head to kiss her lower lip, before whispering, “It’s quite serious, actually, so today’s operation will take a bit longer.”#pleasereadthischapteratfoxaholic.com
Ji Qingying was slightly startled.
Her eyes reddened.
“Did you know”
Fu Yanzhi simply lowered his gaze to look at her.
