Chapter 638 Immense Drug Addiction
Xia Ruoxin knew exactly what Chu Lui was saying. Indeed, she really needed someone else to help them now. After all, both she and Wei Lan were women; and Wei Lan’s health was not good. She was afraid if something like yesterday happened again, what were they going to do? What would Gao Yi do?
Forget it. She rummaged through the shirt pile, not sure what she was looking for. However, she did not know that Chu Lui had already started smiling. She somehow forgot that there was a man like this who was born a businessman. He knew how to calculate everything, even to the finest details. He had planned outcomes for almost everything.
After she picked two light-colored t-shirts, she passed them to Chu Lui.
Chu Lui did not even try them on and passed it to the counter straight.
“Are you not going to try it?” Xia Ruoxin asked Chu Lui.
“It’s okay.” Chu Lui took out his wallet. “Whatever you pick would be good.”
Xia Ruoxin was too lazy to reply to him. Anyway, this kind of shirts was all designed for home use. No matter how fat he was, he would still be able to fit. Moreover, Chu Lui was not even fat.
Chu Lui took out his wallet and produced a card from inside.
However, the cashier tried for a really long time and said it could not be read.
Chu Lui kept that card and changed to another, but the result stayed the same. After three or four cards, he finally remembered that those cards were only for use in China, but he did not bring the international cards with him. Moreover, the money in his wallet was of the wrong currency.
He could only ask Xia Ruoxin for help.
“Ruoxin, I’ll pay you ten folds when we return.”
Before Chu Lui was this stupid, he only gave women money to spend. Such things like letting a woman foot the bill was his first time. He was ashamed beyond words and had the urge to dig a hole and bury him inside.
Even though overseas was different from inside the country, there was no need for a man to foot the bill. If a woman did, he wouldn’t get looks from people; but Chu Lui’s dignity was indeed being stepped on.
Xia Ruoxin took out her money and paid for the bill. Luckily, she had some money with her. If not, she really could not foot the bill. It was only a few pieces of clothes, but he just had to pick the most expensive ones. Those clothes, together with his undergarments, cost a few thousand dollars-a third of her monthly salary.
After she paid, she bought some other men’s slippers and toiletries before throwing all of them into a bag and giving the bag to Chu Lui. He should carry his own bag and not expect her to be his coolie.
Chu Lui carried the whole bunch of stuff, and this was his first time. He did not have a car or a driver, and he had to walk home on foot.
When she returned home, Xia Ruoxin hurriedly went to look at Gao Yi. The look of not seeing him for one day—as if she did not see him for three years on her face-made Chu Lui heart ache. However, there was no choice as he was the one who made this ill fate. He had to shoulder the outcome.
“Auntie, is he okay?”
Xia Ruoxin asked Wei Lan and carefully placed her hand on Gao Yi’s forehead. She was afraid that he would fall sick again, and that would make matters worse.
“Yeah, he’s fine. Today’s been okay so far.” Wei Lan smiled as today was comforting for her. “He slept all the way and did not act up. I don’t dare to hope that he would stay like this. I just wish that he could sleep more so he’ll have more energy.”
She was worried about her son, and now, all she wanted was for her son to sleep more. She did not dare to think about anything else.
A minute more was a minute; a second more was also precious. It was good that he was sleeping, then he would not have to suffer.
Xia Ruoxin heaved a sigh of relief as well. She was afraid that she had returned home too late, and Wei Lan could not handle it if Gao Yi had acted up. Luckily, he was sleeping and did not wake up.
“Auntie, go rest. Let me do it.”
Xia Ruoxin sat down and thought that if they took turns to rest, they would be more energetic. Besides, Gao Yi’s current condition was pretty stable, and so she wanted Wei Lan to rest for the night.
“No need, I’ll keep watch.”
Wei Lan did not want to leave; actually, she could not fall asleep.
Xia Ruoxin did not convince her anymore as she knew that Wei Lan would not go away. She took out the mattress from the cupboard and lay it on the floor. She also had no intention of leaving.
“Auntie Wei, just lie down here for a while. If Gao Yi wakes up, you know, I’ll be here. If something is wrong, I’ll wake you up.”
Wei Lan thought for a while but still nodded in agreement at the end.
Xia Ruoxin covered her with the blanket and sat on the floor to wait for Wei Lan to fall asleep. Just as Wei Lan fell asleep, there was soon a very even breathing. She was just too tired.
Xia Ruoxin turned again and saw that Gao Yi was still fast asleep. His breathing was still normal, and one could tell that this sleep was not very painful for him. However, they all knew that this was just the beginning. It had not ended yet.
If a man like him could struggle with his drug addiction until this state, let alone others.
She leaned against the corner of the wall and wanted to sleep for a while. However, not long after she closed her eyes, she heard a familiar growl.
Xia Ruoxin immediately opened her eyes and checked if Gao Yi’s ropes were tied tight. In the end, Wei Lan felt bad for her son and thought that he had already been tied down for a day. She thought it would be okay to release the ropes when he was asleep, and so that was what she did. However, when Gao Yi’s drug addiction kicked in, there was completely no time or discipline as he would even act up at midnight.
Xia Ruoxin was thinking to herself. What on earth did Bai Luoyin give Gao Yi? How could it be so terrible? Actually, she had the same thoughts as Gao Yi. If she was really so capable of producing drugs, why did she become a musician at the start? She should have just sold medicine, and she would have made a fortune.
She hurried over and wanted to tie Gao Yi’s ropes tightly, but Gao Yi was faster than her. He had already jumped out of bed and wanted to open the door and rush outside.
Oh, no. Xia Ruoxin went forward and wanted to stop him, but it was too late. Gao Yi had already opened the door, and his foot was outside. However, at this time, a hand reached in from the outside and grabbed Gao Yi tightly.
“Let go of me!”
Gao Yi yelled, with his red eyes. His voice sounded like the sound of water boiling.
Bang! In an instant, his entire body was flung to the bed. Before he could even struggle again, a rope was already tied tightly around his body; and in a jiffy, he became like a dumpling. To one’s surprise, the tying method of this rope would not allow it to be released no matter how much he struggled; and it would not hurt his flesh as well. It was unlike the way Xia Ruoxin ad Wei Lan had tied; for theirs, as long as Gao Yi struggled hard enough, the rope would be released.
Only then did Wei Lan start to react and went over to her son.
“Xiao Yi, Xiao Yi, are you okay?”
She yelled repeatedly. Gao Yi clenched his teeth, and the voice in his throat was still the beast-like howl, making other people’s skin stand.
