Chapter 39 – Can I pray for you?
Xing Zhongwan really had no way to answer this question. The atmosphere in the ward was very awkward for a while. What could Xing Zhongwan do? Well, he never really thought that he would develop any special relationship with a man. If he doesn’t answer correctly, Qi Yun’s sad face will make him feel really distressed.
But now the most important thing was not to talk about his relationship with Qi Yun, but his eyes.
Xing Zhongwan thought for a while and his tone softened, “Can we discuss this issue after you finish the operation?”
Qi Yun slowly turned his head, looked at the ceiling, and said after a long time, “Give me your hand!”
Xing Zhongwan was stunned. He stretched out his hand and Qi Yun grabbed it, rubbing the delicate skin with his fingertips and giving Xing Zhongwan goosebumps all over.
“It’s been a long time since I touched your hand.”
Hey! Xing Zhongwan felt like a cat with raised fur. Why are you so cringe?
Qi Yun closed his eyes and held Xing Zhongwan’s hand tightly, “Finally I can sleep well.” It was babbled out, but it made Xing Zhongwan feel a little sad.
He relaxed his whole body, “I’m right by your side, you can sleep in peace.”
After a while, Qi Yun’s steady breathing came and Xing Zhongwan was stunned for a while. He wanted to take his hand from Qi Yun. But when he tried to break free several times, he couldn’t pull it out, afraid that Qi Yun would wake up if he used a lot of strength. Xing Zhongwan yawned, lying helplessly beside Qi Yun’s hospital bed.
Outside the door, Chen Ying looked at the two with their hands clasped together with a complicated expression. After Xing Zhongwan’s absence these days, Qi Yun’s reaction made him uneasy. He became very haggard in just a few days.
Not talking, not eating and not cooperating with treatment, which caused him to be in this state these days. It was simply too different from Qi Yun in the past. In the past, Qi Yun was impeccable and one could hardly find his weakness. Now Xing Zhongwan was like a knife making a hole in Qi Yun’s protective shell. How deep the hole is now, only the parties involved knew.
The next day, Qi Yun was surprisingly calm. He was like a different person compared to the fragile one last night. Xing Zhongwan met his attending doctor and the two sides agreed on a time for the preliminary operation. Xing Zhongwan returned to the ward and opened the door to see Qi Yun sitting in a wheelchair with his back to him. The huge floor-to-ceiling glass reflected his pale face. face. Xing Zhongwan walked over and squatted down beside him, Qi Yun silently turned his head and smiled at him, “Have you talked to the doctor?”
Xing Zhongwan looked at him very carefully. Qi Yun was shining brightly in the sun, and the lots of anger he gave him disappeared. He was thinking that Qi Yun was actually scared. What the doctor said to him just now made his scalp go numb. Qi Yun himself also probably knew it as well.
Qi Yun has always been indifferent and detached with an aloof appearance. People who didn’t know him would think that he does not feel pain, sadness, or fear.
But Xing Zhongwan knew that Qi Yun would hang his head and eyes when he was at a loss, and that he would also wipe his eyes when water entered them while taking a bath. As long as he was shy, his ears would turn red first. In his eyes, Qi Yun was like a little hedgehog lying in front of you with thorns all over his body.
The heart-wrenching feeling tingled and seeped into his bones little by little.
“Qi Yun, you need to shave your hair. I don’t know if your head will look good after. Can you bear it if your head was bald?”
Xing Zhongwan wanted to crack a joke .
To make him happy, Qi Yun just turned his head slightly, facing him, with the corners of his mouth curved, “Wanwan, I still want to carry you into the Qi family’s house. I won’t die.”
Xing Zhongwan paused for a long time, not saying a word.
Qi Yun sat quietly. Those eyes were always out of focus on Xing Zhongwan’s body. If those eyes could see, how beautiful they would be.
Xing Zhongwan got up and grabbed Qi Yun’s wheelchair, “I’ll take you to a place.”
Xing Zhongwan took Qi Yun to the temple. They prayed and drew a slip. Xing Zhongwan found a master who understood the slip, which said good luck. Xing Zhongwan’s upturned eyebrows made Qi Yun’s entourage beside him dumbfounded. They lowered their heads and dared not look at the young madam.
“Qi Yun, congrats! You are sure to be fine.”
Qi Yun couldn’t help laughing when he heard the unmistakable joy in Xing Zhongwan’s voice, “You still believe in this?” Xing Zhongwan said, “It’s very effective. When I used to go back to Jiangnan every year, my mother would always bring me here. Ah, wait for me here.”
After speaking, Xing Zhongwan turned around and went inside. He found the master in the temple who gave out a safety-prayer lantern. He hoped that Qi Yun’s surgery would go well.
After coming out of the temple, Xing Zhongwan tied the red silk1Usually obtainable in a temple. You can make a wish and then tie it somewhere. Usually on a big, old tree outside the temple compound. he had requested for on Qi Yun’s wrist. Qi Yun raised his hand, “What’s this?”
Xing Zhongwan pulled down his sleeve, “It will bring you good luck.”
Qi Yun tugged the soft ribbon on his wrist, “Thank you, Wanwan.
Xing Zhongwan walked behind him and pushed his wheelchair, “Let’s go back, what do you want to eat at night? I’ll make it for you.”
Qi Yun thought about it carefully, “Chicken porridge.”
Xing Zhongwan said cheerfully, “No problem.”
Qi Yun looked to the front as the smile on the corner of his mouth faded gradually. He stroked the ribbon on his wrist and his eyes darkened. If I could pray for something, could I pray for you?
Qi Yun was discharged from the hospital. The operation is scheduled for half a month. The domestic and foreign teams will jointly perform the operation. Qi Yun has always been very calm, continuing his regular rehabilitation and taking medicine on time every day. On the other hand, it seemed like Xing Zhongwan was the one who was going to have the surgery and he always felt a little irritable. He was afraid every time Qi Yun would not feel well if he ate too little. He also was afraid that the food in his stomach would not be digested well if he ate too much. Even Qi Yun couldn’t help but ask him, Wanwan, what’s the matter with you?
Xing Zhongwan himself didn’t know what was wrong and this unreasonable irritability made him urgently need to find an outlet.
Coincidentally, someone was available.
Qi’s fourth young master was here. Ever since he knew that there was a woman by Qi Yun’s side, he had been eager to see what that woman looked like. He even dared ask for marriage in person, which caused his mother to be punished and grounded. Speaking of which, Qi Yun never cared about the women who were beside him or even the fiancee before his accident, who he had turned a blind eye to despite him sleeping with her so many times. Now that he had even taken the initiative to ask for marriage, how could Qi’s fourth young master not be curious? The more Qi Yun hid them, the more he wanted to meet that person. If he could snatch the person who put him in his heart, it would be fun. Only then would Qi’s fourth young master be happy.
It is not difficult to find out where Qi Yun was. As soon as he got the news, Qi’s fourth young master went there impatiently. As soon as he entered the yard, he saw Xing Zhongwan lying on the reclining chair and sleeping in the morning. Xing Zhongwan’s scattered half-length hair was covered with a windbreaker and it looked like he had fallen asleep. Qi’s fourth young master walked over and lowered his head. His soul was about to fly, was this Qi Yun’s woman? Qi’s fourth young master was all excited. He lifted the hair on Xing Zhongwan’s face, but his entire person was stunned.
Xing Zhongwan suddenly opened his eyes, stretched out his hand, throwing Qi’s fourth young master heavily to the ground.
His long and narrow eyes were cold, “Who are you?”
Qi’s fourth young master was hurt and angry when he suddenly fell to the ground. He was stunned when he heard Xing Zhongwan’s voice. The beautiful person turned out to be a man?
