“Mommy…”

She called out again. Her body was aching from her mother hugging her so tight, and she felt so hot. The blanket was almost covering her whole head.

“Rainy!” Xia Ruoxin pulled the blankets off her daughter in a hurry. Her fingers gently caressed her daughter’s cheeks. “Call Mommy again, Rainy, once more.”

“Mommy…” Rainy did not really understand what her mother was doing, but she followed her orders obediently anyway.

“Mommy, Rainy wants to eat cake.” She reached her little hands out towards Xia Ruoxin, crawling quietly into her arms.

“Okay, let’s go eat some cake.” She lifted her daughter up in her arms, her body swaying slightly. She actually did not have any strength to carry her daughter. The doctor noticed and reached his hand out immediately. “Let me carry her, Miss Xia. You’re tired.”

However, Xia Ruoxin shook her head stubbornly. “It’s okay. I’ll do it. And I’m sorry for making you guys worry.” She said apologetically and then walked out of the ward. She was now back to her senses, but the doctor was still somber. Even though the child was fine, it did not mean that she would be fine in the future. This kind of thing would happen again sooner or later, and their conditions really call for worry.

Xia Ruoxin brought her daughter back to her ward cautiously and put her in her bed. She picked up the cake from the side and started to feed it to her daughter carefully.

“Does it taste good? When you’re done eating, Mommy will go get more.”

Rainy nodded her head lightly. “It’s good.” Her obedient voice made Xia Ruoxin’s heart clench. Rainy lowered her head, took her dolly, and hugged it.

Xia Ruoxin reached her hand out to wipe her daughter’s face which finally had some warmth. “Rainy, don’t scare Mommy anymore. You will really scare Mommy to death.”

She did not say it out loud because Rainy was too young, really. She had no idea what had just happened. Now, after eating the cake, she was sitting quietly on the bed and playing with her doll.

As long as she had the doll, she would be happy even is she’s alone.

Sunlight seeped into the room and fell on Xia Ruoxin’s still nervous body. Her eyebrows furrowed tightly as if it would never loosen again, and her eyes were very, very red.

Inside an office, Rainy’s attending doctor put down the documents in his hand. The child’s condition was deteriorating. Her current state now would not make her last for more than a few days. They were lucky this time. Next time, there was no guarantee that she would be able to wake up.

Next time, it might really be an ice-cold corpse.

He picked up the documents again and flipped through the pages before letting out a deep sigh. He did not have any solution. Unless there was a suitable bone marrow for a transplant, even the best medicine was useless to the child.

What’s more, if the dosage is too much, it would have a detrimental impact on the child’s body because she was really too young.

He closed his eyes. This was the first time he felt so troubled because he genuinely liked the little girl. If she really died, he would be so sad.

At this instance, the telephone rang. He massaged between his brows with one hand, picking up the phone weakly with the other.

“Hello?” His voice was also feeble.

Except, after a while, he stood up all of a sudden, an unspeakable joy on his face.

“Do you really mean it? Are you really willing to?”

The doctor smiled, finally.

“That’s great, that’s really great. Thank you, thank you…” He was so moved he felt like he was almost going to cry. In fact, he couldn’t see it, but hot tears were running down his cheeks from the corners of his eyes. He was not crying from sadness, but rather, from happiness and excitement.

He put down the phone and walked out in a hurry.

Xia Ruoxin was teaching her daughter how to read. She might be just three, but she can recognize a lot of words even though she did not go to school. All the words she knew were taught to her by Xia Ruoxin.

Moreover, Rainy was smart and a fast learner.

“Come, write your name here.” Xia Ruoxin placed the pen in Rainy’s hand. She had taught her how to write her name before.

“Let me test you. Have you forgotten?”

Rainy tilted her chin up gently. “Rainy hasn’t forgotten.” Her expression was extremely serious. With the pen Xia Ruoxin passed her in her hand, she started writing her name down in strokes.

Every stroke was written with care. Even though the handwriting was not very nice, each accurate stroke really spelled out ‘Rainy’.

“Mommy, what’s my last name? Mommy’s last name is Xia, and the nurse’s is Chen, but what’s Rainy’s?” She tilted her head in curiosity, not understanding what her last name was exactly.

“Your last name is the same as mine, of course. You’re summer’s 1 rain. Xia Ruoxin pinched her daughter’s little nose lightly. She just realized that she had overlooked something. It seemed like her daughter did not have a proper name yet. She was always calling her ‘Rainy’ and had forgotten that the child needed a proper name with a last name. What was written on the child’s registration again? It seemed her daughter’s birth was not registered yet.

Oh, God. She stroked her forehead. She was such a careless mother.

“Rainy likes this name. Summer’s Rain.” The little girl picked up the book in her hands again and added a ‘Xia’ in front of her name. There were too many strokes so she grew tired writing it.

“Mommy, Rainy is done writing.” She presented the name she wrote in front of Xia Ruoxin like a treasure, a cute smile on her face.

“Mommy, look.” Xia Ruoxin looked at the name her daughter wrote. She was surprised she remembered this word. She knew her daughter was smart, but she was smarter than she thought.

Perhaps her daughter was a little genius.

She rubbed her daughter’s small bald head. She was such a cute child. She really, really loved her.

“Miss Xia.” The doctor entered in huge strides, his voice reaching her before the person himself. “I have good news for you!” His words were full of excitement, but Xia Ruoxin’s heart was as still as the Dead Sea. What kind of good news would they have at this current state?

“The thing is, Miss Xia, there’s hope for Rainy. She can do the operation.”
