Chapter 462 The Child was Sick

She was breaking out in cold sweat. Gao Yi specifically told her it was best not to let Rainy catch a cold or fever due to her current condition.

She turned on the light. The child was sleeping on the bed. Her face was flushed, and her breaths felt hot. She was obviously not feeling well. There would be one or two coughs from time to time which caused her tiny eyebrows to frown.

“Rainy…” Xia Ruoxin patted her daughter’s face gently. It felt hot to her touch.

“Mommy…” Rainy heard her mother’s voice. She opened her eyes in a daze. “I’m so cold.”

“My good girl. It won’t be cold soon.” Xia Ruoxin hurriedly helped her daughter put on more clothes and prepared to send the girl to a hospital. Rainy was not like any child. The thing that scared Xia Ruoxin the most was her daughter having a fever.

She was so anxious that she felt like crying. However, she fought to hold her tears back before they could fall from her eyes. She couldn’t be a useless mother. Her daughter needed her care. If crying could resolve anything, she was willing to shed tears to fill a vault. Nevertheless, tears wouldn’t help her.

She wrapped her daughter in a rug, carried her, and ran out.

It was the middle of the night. There were very few people around. On top of that, the dry autumn wind was blowing. It was so frigidly cold.

She held her child tightly in her arms. By now, Rainy was feeling disoriented from her high fever. Her hot and raspy breaths caused Xia Ruoxin to panic and worry even more.

Why hadn’t they arrived at the hospital? It wasn’t that far away. Although it was a cold night, she was breaking out in cold sweat because of her anxiety.

There was a screech.

A low-profile black sedan stopped in front of her. The car door opened, and a man emerged from within. He reached out and pulled her sleeve.

“What happened? It’s the middle of the night. Why are you running?”

“Chu… Chu Lui…”

Xia Ruoxin parted her quivering lips. Small beads of cold sweat covered her forehead. The wind blew at her slender body as though it was going to blow her away.

Chu Lui lowered his head and saw the child in Xia Ruoxin’s arms. She was wrapped tightly in a rug. Only her half of her small face was visible, but it was an unusual red.

The child was sick.

Chu Lui didn’t say much. He opened his car door. “Get in. I’ll send you to the hospital.”

Xia Ruoxin hesitated, but she was carrying a disoriented child in her arms. In the end, she got into the car. Nothing mattered right now except for her daughter. She would even sit in a car full of murderers, not to mention Chu Lui. He also didn’t mind running a few red lights in order to send the child to the hospital.

The car came to a stop. Chu Lui alighted first. He opened the door for Xia Ruoxin who alighted carrying the child wrapped tightly in a rug. Suddenly, she couldn’t feel anything in her arms. Chu Lui had already taken the child over.

Xia Ruoxin could have carried Rainy herself. The child might be little, but she was wrapped in a rug which would be difficult and might take some effort for her to carry. It was different for Chu Lui. He carried the child single-handed as though Rainy weighed nothing.

When he took Rainy into his arms earlier, his heart ached; and he didn’t know why.

Such an adorable child. She was just a child-a wee thing. She was the child that he wouldn’t be able to have for the rest of his life. He thought if she was his daughter, he would be in so much pain and wished he would suffer on her behalf.

He rested his huge palm against the child’s tiny forehead. True enough, it was scorching hot to his touch.

“Let me do it.” Xia Ruoxin wanted to carry her child quickly, but Chu Lui evaded her hands.

“Stop arguing. The child is what matters now. Her fever is very high, and you walk too slowly.” As soon as he finished, he carried Rainy into the hospital. At this time of the night, there weren’t many patients inside except for them, who had arrived in the middle of the night.

After a series of examinations, the result was finally out. Fortunately, Rainy had caught a common cold which had caused the fever. It had nothing to do with her previous medical issue. However, she was still young so she needed to be hospitalized for a few days as the doctor was worried that the infection would become pneumonia.

“I’ll go and make the arrangements.” Chu Lui rolled up his sleeves. He wasn’t bothered about his several-hundred-thousand-dollar suit. He simply treated it like his casual wear. “What is the child’s name?” he asked Xia Ruoxin. Looking at her now, he thought she wouldn’t have the strength to move.

“Her name…” Xia Ruoxin pursed her red lips for a long time before she gave him a fake name.

“Her name is Rainy Gao.”

“Rainy Gao…” Chu Lui repeated. In fact, the name sounded so normal that he didn’t see the need to give it any compliments.

He went to fill in the paperwork for Rainy’s hospitalization. When he returned, someone had attached an IV drip on the child’s hand. The thin needle was pricked into a tiny blood vein at the back of her hand. With medication added into the old fluid, it dripped a drop at a time and went into the child’s blood system. Gradually, Rainy’s expression was no longer as uncomfortable as she had looked earlier. She started to sleep at ease.

Xia Ruoxin caressed her daughter’s forehead, and it didn’t feel as hot as before. The child’s long eyelashes hung low which resembled a pair of brushes. They rested on her tiny face which still looked weak and translucent.

“Don’t worry. She’ll be fine.” Chu Lui stood aside, not approaching.

“Thank you.” Xia Ruoxin shifted her position slightly and blocked her daughter from Chu Lui’s line of vision. While she appeared weak to him, Chu Lui could see that Xia Ruoxin’s back was straightened.

“There’s no need to.” Chu Lui opened his mouth. He had intended to say something, but in the end, he could only manage to sigh softly.

“If anything happens, you can call me. You should still know my number. It has not changed.”

“Thank you.” Xia Ruoxin thanked him again. Those two words sounded distant.

Chu Lui knew Xia Ruoxin was ostracizing him. He never expected her to act amicably to him in such a short time. He also felt that it would be impossible. Not to mention the others.

He also knew that by remaining here, he was making her uncomfortable and loathe him even more.

So he closed the door to the ward and stayed outside the whole night. It was only when more people were walking around the hospital did he open the door to the ward again. He saw both of them sleeping inside. Xia Ruoxin was sprawled on the bed while Rainy was tucked in bed, exposing only half her face and the tiny forehead.

He wanted to go in. However, he closed the door and did nothing.

He raised his wrist and checked the time. It was almost time for him to go to work.

He went to the office, wearing the same clothes from the day before. His hair was messy, and there was a stench on him. This was the first time he had arrived at his office looking disheveled. It was unlike him. Nevertheless, he remained oblivious to the others and walked with his eyes fixed straight ahead as though he didn’t feel he was the subject of the other’s curiosity. He was the only person who knew that he had the urge to glare at his employees who were looking at him weirdly. However, once he recalled the stench on him, he forced himself to put up with them. It was better for him to lie low with his current appearance.
