His Arrival (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Di Fuyi could tell that she could barely hold herself together. There were many different kinds of incompatible antitoxins in her body’s system right now, complementing and resisting one another at the same time.
She was in a very critical condition, and the toxins could kill her anytime.
“Have you… Tried to cure the toxins on your own?” He had to find out more before giving her the treatment that she desperately needed.
Gu Xijiu kept her eyes closed and said, “Mr. Zhu has given me a few different doses.”
“Those were not suitable for your illness! You are a doctor yourself. Couldn’t you tell?”
“I was not able to move.”
Di Fuyi exclaimed in frustration, “That bastard!”
A sudden regret filled his heart for not being there for her in time. Otherwise, she would not have gone through the suffering that she did.
“Do you have any water?” She was very thirsty.
Di Fuyi took out a water sac from his storage space. She nervously moistened her lips with her tongue and reached out for the sac.
The broken water bottle caught Di Fuyi’s attention. He then offered, “You barely have any strength. Let me help you.”
He helped her up and gently put her head on his shoulder so that he could feed her the water.
Gu Xijiu’s keen sense of smell was unaffected, so she could still perceive the faint scent of his body when they got close. Her heart raced a little. Eagerly, she tried to ignore his scent and focused on the water instead.
Di Fuyi had his arms around her body, once again. The proximity stifled his heart. He did not mind the hideous look on her face. She would always be the woman whom he so preciously cherished. There was hardly any chance for them to get so close. He was not even sure when the next time would be.
Concerned, he noticed the sweats that broke out on her forehead. “Are you in great pain?” He asked.
After downing some water, the pain became more tolerable. “Better,” she reassured.
Di Fuyi opened a huge umbrella that could finally provide some shade under the flaming sun. Her body was still in pain, but it was more bearable now. Before this, the pain was so bad that she thought her flesh was being sliced off piece by piece.
Di Fuyi noticed that her body would occasionally contort itself due to the pain. If the same condition were to happen to any other girl, the girl would already be screaming and shouting in extreme discomfort.
He knew that she was still in pain, even though she said she was feeling better now. He could not begin to comprehend how painful it could have been for Gu Xijiu.
Di Fuyi was overwhelmed by a sudden urge to kill Yun Qingluo.
“Shout out if you are in pain. Don’t try to hold it back. Why are you acting so strong in front of me?” Di Fuyi was annoyed by her stubbornness.
Gu Xijiu opened her eyes and said calmly, “There is no need for that. I am not acting strong.”
She did not even let out a sound when a greater wave of pain tortured her yesterday.
Di Fuyi did not know what to say, but the look in his eyes darkened in disappointment. He knew that she would only show her weakness in front of the man that she truly loved. She would definitely want him around to take care of her right now instead of Di Fuyi.
With that being said, had she lost all affection for him? Or was she still in love with him?
His heart sank, but it was not the time to discuss their relationship. He reached out for her hand and put their palms together. “I will help you to detoxify the remaining toxins in your body. The process will be quite painful, but I believe that you will be able to take it.”
Gu Xijiu had faith in his medical knowledge. He could perform some special recovery techniques in the past, which proved that he was gifted. Moreover, it would be better to detoxify the toxins in her body with the use of spiritual power. It would be more effective than the acupuncture technique.
However, it would require someone with a great level of spiritual power and control to perform the detoxification.
She was too weak to perform the detoxification with her spiritual power, and also too doubtful to trust Mr. Zhu. Gu Xijiu dared not put her life at risk in the hands of the unreliable bamboo man. Luckily, Di Fuyi showed up in time to treat her injury with his spiritual power. Relieved, she agreed almost instantaneously, “All right!”
