Heroine Saves A Gentleman - Chapter 11
When he was finally awake, he could always see a busy figure moving around, feeding him food and changing his bandages for him. Despite taboos regarding men and women, she didn’t keep herself away from him. Her pair of bright and sparkling eyes always revealed a clear smile when seeing him.
She is taking care of me without any care for societal standards.
If…I am lucky to recover, I will definitely marry this woman. That way, I won’t ruin her reputation. He thought about this while still in a fuzzy state of mind.
When he slowly woke up from his temperature dropped this time, Yu Xingzhi saw Zhou Xiaoxiao packing up the things in the cave and gracefully carrying all the fur onto the sled, then quickly tying the reins on the sled dogs.
She’s going again. When he realized this, Yu Xingzhi felt his heart sinking into darkness and he really wanted to ask her to stay and not abandon him in this dark and cold cave, suffering from this illness until he was about to die.
However, his good upbringing made him unable to open his mouth. After all, he was unwilling and couldn’t implicate a lady who he had never seen before until this day into a dangerous situation. Therefore, he quickly but reluctantly adjusted his emotions, preparing for another peaceful farewell.
After Zhou Xiaoxiao was done tying the reins on the sled dogs, she looked over to see Yu Xingzhi revealing an upset and sad expression on his handsome face. But this expression quickly disappeared and he placed a quiet and calm look on; he even reluctantly smiled. Zhou Xiaoxiao walked over and rolled Yu Xingzhi along with the blanket, carrying him in her arms and placing him on the sled.
Yu Xingzhi was shocked. “You…you are bringing me with you?”
“I’m bringing you to find a doctor.” Zhou Xiaoxiao placed her dog skin hat on his head. “You can’t die.”
But when Zhou Xiaoxiao looked closely at him with her round and wide eyes, smiling and pulling the fur blanket higher up for him, he felt a sense of warmth that he wasn’t willing to let go. Because of this feeling and the desire for survival, he didn’t reject her in the end.
When the sled started moving and making its way down the mountain, half of Yu Xingzhi’s heart was immersed in the happiness of being saved, while the other half was deeply blaming himself for his selfishness. He felt bitter and knew he was at fault. He was unable to put his feelings into words.
The two arrived at Lijiatun in the evening. Zhou Xiaoxiao walked straight into the clinic. When she entered, the young man from last time had immediately sawed them. He hurriedly placed down the work in his hands and helped carry the patient into the inner courtyard. While the elderly doctor was looking over Yu Xingzhi’s injuries, he stroked his beard and revealed a solemn expression. Zhou Xiaoxiao secretly placed her hand on a dagger behind her back. If the situation isn’t right, she will do anything to force him to treat Yu Xingzhi.
“Child, go put the door plank on and put out the candles in the front yard; Close the door on your way out.” The doctor said to the young man, “Quickly go, quickly go, and boil some warm water in preparation.”
He then said to Zhou Xiaoxiao, “We’re going to need this brother to help me.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao slowly let go of her hand holding the dagger and said, “Many thanks, sir.” While she kept her guard up, she helped him.
Yu Xinghzhi had a determined personality and although the process of treatment was extremely painful, he didn’t utter a single word. Instead, he clenched his teeth and looked to the other side.
If it weren’t for his fisted shaking hands, one might think that the doctor wasn’t treating a malevolent injury on him. Up until the doctor set his broken bone back into place, he finally couldn’t help but groan; his face was full of sweat as he fainted.
Even the doctor who had seen many patients couldn’t help but sigh. “This overbearing Lin Residence is really torturing people to death.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao who was wiping the sweat off Yu Xingzhi’s face was shocked by his words and immediately turned around to look at the doctor in alarm.
