Her daughter was her only family.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath before she strode into the hospital. No matter how high the price, she must save her daughter. Nothing else mattered.
In the hospital…
Rainy sat with Xia Ruoxin’s arms around her. As a result of her prolonged absence, Rainy was worried that she would be left alone so she grabbed onto Xia Ruoxin’s blouse tightly.
Xia Ruoxin caressed her daughter’s head. The pain in her palm darkened her eyes. Her hand might have hurt, but her daughter would be experiencing more pain from now on.
“Mommy, I want to go home.” Rainy had her doll in one hand and her other one grabbing tightly onto Xia Ruoxin’s clothes. Fear was written all over her face.
She was scared of being here alone and not being able to see her mother.
“Mmm, soon. We’ll go home very soon.” Xia Ruoxin held her daughter’s small frame tightly in her arms. Her assurances sounded weak compared to her hug.
Was it still possible for them to go home?
Xia Ruoxin touched her own pocket and produced a candy from within.
“Rainy, look. Mommy is performing magic for you.” She put the candy at her daughter’s mouth. Rainy’s long eyelashes fluttered, and she bit down on her almost pale lips. Then, she took the candy. However, she did not eat it. She smelled it and put it before Xia Ruoxin.
“Mommy, eat.” A nurse had come in, and her heart ached at the sound of the soft voice.
Such a pity; she was such a beautiful child.
Xia Ruoxin took the candy, but she put it at Rainy’s mouth again. “Mommy has eaten. This is for you. If you don’t eat it, I’m going to be angry.” She smiled. Tears began streaming down her face involuntarily. She hurriedly wiped them away, worried that her daughter would see them.
Her daughter had always been smart.
Rainy thought for a while before lowering her head to eat the candy from Xia Ruoxin’s hand. Sweetness spread in her mouth, prompting her to finally smile. That was all she needed—a candy, her mother, and Dolly.
With her two little hands hugging tightly onto that doll, her childish face finally smiled. As her eyes closed, she fell asleep sprawled in Xia Ruoxin’s arms.
Xia Ruoxin held onto her daughter carefully. A cloud of tears had caused the view before her to turn hazy.
The doctor had been asking about the hospitalization fees again. However, she did not know how she could come up with such a huge sum of money. No matter what kind of work she chose, there was no way she could come up with the money in such a short span of time.
Unless she resorted to robbing or stealing. Unless…
The look in her eyes darkened while she caressed her daughter’s head. The corner of her lips began to purse helplessly.
“Rainy, Mommy is willing to do anything for you.”
She put her daughter down but realized that Rainy was clutching tightly onto the corner of her blouse. Perhaps, she was afraid that she would leave her again. So, she held on with her dear life even in her sleep.
Xia Ruoxin hardened herself and pulled her daughter’s hand away gently. They had never been apart since she was born. This was the first time, and it wouldn’t be the last.
“Rainy, trust Mommy. I will definitely make you better.”
“You don’t have a father or a grandmother… but you have a mother who loves you with everything. How could I let you die?”
She stood up. However, she was reluctant to leave the moment she saw Rainy tossed and turned in her bed. There was no other way.
She needed money. Lots and lots of money.
