Chapter 639 A Dog’s Bite
“Why is it so serious?” Chu Lui walked over and sized up the Gao Yi who currently had no humanity. It was not that he had never seen a drug addict, but it was because none of them were as serious as this. He had completely lost all of his senses.
“He’s been shot with a special drug.”
Xia Ruoxin leaned against the wall and breathed lightly; both her hands still hurt. This arm of hers was dogged with bad luck; it was hit by a stick and then bitten.
“How did you tie this?” Wei Lan still had the mood to examine the tying method of his son’s ropes. Next time, they should tie using this method for him so he would not be in so much pain, and at the very least, it would not cause endless scars on his body.
“It’s a military tying method.” Chu Lui rolled his sleeves up. Even though he was in a casual outfit and was even wearing a pair of sandals, he could allow the pair of sandals become as if it was from a famous brand.
Wei Lan did not understand. “What military method?”
“Oh, I used to be in the military a few years back. I learned about it then.”
Also, he continued talking to Wei Lan, “Auntie, could you take care of him for a while? I have something to talk about with Ruoxin.”
“Okay,” answered Wei Lan hurriedly. She stood aside, but her eyes never left her son.
Chu Lui walked over to Xia Ruoxin’s side, but Xia Ruoxin turned her head away and refused to acknowledge him.
Chu Lui frowned and said. “You, follow me out.”
Xia Ruoxin still ignored him.
Wei Lan sighed and pulled Xia Ruoxin’s hand. “Ruoxin, go on. I’m here. Gao Yi would be fine. No matter what happened, he’s still the child’s father; and he did help us a lot. If it was not for him, I don’t even know if Gao Yi would still be lying here like that.”
When she recalled the danger from a few days back, she still felt the trauma in her heart. If they were not her, they would not have understood how badly the ordeal frightened her.
Xia Ruoxin stood up, but she had no intention of leaving. It was only until Gao Yi’s noise lowered a little did she walk out. Chu Lui was still sitting outside, motionless, just like a new statue wearing a pair of sandals. When Xia Ruoxin bought this pair of sandals, she wanted to mess with that man. In the end, he really did wear it so she felt a little proud of herself.
Chu Lui waved towards Xia Ruoxin.
Xia Ruoxin stood still and did not move. Was she a dog? She would not come and go as he pleased. In the past, he kicked her away; but now that he found it fun, he wanted her back again.
“I have no other intention. I just want to check the injury on your arm.” Chu Lui felt that this woman hard thorns all over his body, and she was bent on pricking him to death. He knew that he was in the wrong, but no matter how wrong he was—how unforgivable he was, he still deserved a chance of redemption.
Xia Ruoxin touched her left arm. How did he know?
She then walked over. Chu Lui extended his arm, but Xia Ruoxin moved aside as if his hand was going to hit her. This was her natural instinct and also because of her past conflict with that man.
Chu Lui’s fingers stiffened, but he still extended it and pulled Xia Ruoxin’s arms. Truly, there was tape all over her arm, and
see that her arm was swollen.
Carefully, he removed the bandage, and the arm still seemed to swell. In comparison with her thin right arm, it was obvious. No wonder she had been wearing long-sleeved clothes lately. There really was something wrong with her arm.
She did hide her wound quite well. Even Gao Yi, a doctor, did not discover it when he was awake. Of course, that did not happen very often.
However, indeed, neither Gao Yi nor Wei Lan had discovered that Xia Ruoxin had a wound. If it was not because Chu Lui had seen her frown at her arm, he would not have known either.
This woman’s tolerance was even better than before.
“How did you get injured?” Chu Lui asked as he stared at Xia Ruoxin’s wound.
Everywhere around the wound was swollen, and the central piece looked like it was infected. She seemed to have been bitten by something
“Did a dog bite you?” Chu Lui tried to ask.
In the end-once he had said it out loud, Xia Ruoxin gave him a cold stare.
“Okay,” Chu Lui understood. It was indeed bitten by a dog, but he could not treat this kind of wound as he was not a doctor like Gao Yi.
“We might need to go to the hospital.” Chu Lui pulled Xia Ruoxin’s hand and wanted to go out.
Xia Ruoxin removed her hand and pulled down her sleeve.
“None of your business.”
She did not accept the man’s good intentions. Who knew what other plans he had behind his goodwill?
“Xia Ruoxin!” Chu Lui really wanted to use his fingers and knock some senses out of the woman and poke her until she died, then he would commit suicide himself; this would save him this torment.
“I know my name is Xia Ruoxin. You didn’t need to remind me.” Xia Ruoxin talked back.
Chu Lui’s hands started to itch; he really wanted to strangle her.
He rubbed his brows, and the anxiety he felt at this moment was almost the same as Gao Yi inside.
“Ruoxin, let’s not talk about the past. Just take me as a normal friend. Your arm injury is very serious. If you don’t listen to me and this goes on, you might really lose your arm. Gao Yi will be okay for now. After his drug addiction kicked in, there will be a period of transition until the next attack. It would take at least a few hours before it so you don’t have to worry, he would be fine now. However, if something really happened to your arm and he finds out it was because of him, have you ever thought about how he would react? Besides, he’s a doctor.”
To use another man to convince his own ex-wife, the mother of his child, the woman he had thrown away carelessly; Chu Lui had never thought that he would become this miserable.
Xia Ruoxin held onto her arm tightly. She took her bag and was ready to leave. She was not a fool so she knew what Chu Lui said was right. She did not want to lose her arm just because she was fighting with someone. Even though she could still draw with one hand to earn enough money to feed her and her daughter, and she had already signed a ten-year contract with ‘A Sunny Day will Come’, alongside with her savings; she still did not want herself to become a real cripple. Even though this arm had been nice to see but not good to use.
Seeing Xia Ruoxin leave, Chu Lui hurriedly followed behind. He had even forgotten to change his shoes before he left, and he was still wearing a pair of simple sandals.
