Marry Before Love - Chapter 7
When he was half asleep, he felt that a warm thing was applied to his head. Although it was not heavy, it still made him feel uncomfortable and wanted to shake his head or shake it off. A pair of soft hands grabbed him, and someone whispered in his ear ” Brother, put it on for a while, and I’ll take it off for you later.”
The voice in his ear was very gentle, with some familiarity and some coaxing. But because of his headache he couldn’t tell who was talking to him, but when he heard that brother, he thought vaguely, did his brother do all that?
The man really didn’t lie to him, the towel on his head was taken off when it was a little cold, and by the soaked towel the person gently wiped his face, and the warm water droplets slid down his neck due to the gravity, and quickly soaked his collar. It was blocked by that soft hand. The quilt was slightly lifted, and a cold wind blew in. He shrank uncomfortably in the other direction, but soon his hand was taken out from the warm quilt. He expressed his dissatisfaction, but the person who came here still wiped his hands seriously, and waited until he wiped all his limbs before putting him back into the quilt completely, and tucked his feet in the quilt.
“Brother, go to sleep, I’ll make porridge for you.” His sweat-soaked forehead was gently brushed, and his hair was no longer sticking to his face. He felt the sticky, slightly frowning brows eased, and an involuntary “um” sound got out of his mouth, it didn’t matter, since he was the only one left in the room.
When he woke up, his body was full of stickiness, and there was a bitter taste of medicine in his mouth. He blinked blankly, not understanding how so many things he didn’t know could happen even after falling asleep. The little maid next to him saw that he was awake and quickly stood up and ran to the door. He disappeared without a trace before he could stop her.
He could only prop up his weak body and lean on the bedside table. Just such a simple action made him gasp for breath and rest against the pillow behind him for a while. The little maid who ran out to call for someone soon brought in a long line of people, the doctor leaned over, the housekeeper also asked him about his condition with concern, and a bunch of people squeezed in behind who didn’t know what to do.
He searched the crowd, but didn’t see the person he wanted to see. He opened his mouth to ask something, but he gave up. Not only because of the dry throat, but also because he didn’t want to ask and get an embarrassing answer. Forget it, don’t be selfish.
But what he experienced in half-dreaming and half-awake was nothing like a dream. He clearly knew that such a gentle voice would not belong to the person he was looking forward to. As for who, he had his own answer in his heart, so he waited for most of the people to hear it. After retreating, he took a cup of warm water handed by the little maid,he moistened his throat and asked her,
“Have you been by my side?”
“Yes, yes.” The little maid’s face was a little red, and she said stumblingly, “I was staying here after the eldest young master ordered me to come down.”
He didn’t speak, just took a few more sips of water in silence. She’s still a little girl who doesn’t knew much about lying, and he didn’t know how Qiao Shu sneaked her in.
There was no trace of Qiao Shu in the group just now. Where did he go?
The little maid may be a newcomer. After seeing him, she was silent and a little uneasy. He looked at the other party as if he didn’t even know where to put his hands and feet, and waved to her to let her go down. Although the little maid was embarrassed, she still had to stay here.
“I promised the young master that I will stay here.” He had a guess about the young master in her words. It was a little strange that Qiaoshu was able to call out the people in the old house. You must know that the attitude of Mr. Qiao towards Qiaoshu’s mother and son is obvious.
The room was silent for a while, and soon a new group of people came in. He looked at Cheng Yuan, who came in with Mr. Cheng, and Qiao Shu, who shrank beside Cheng’s mother and looked overly timid, and blinked gently.
After the routine condolences, Cheng Yuan was left in the room, and Qiao Shu just came up with everyone’s eyes and said weakly,
“Brother-in-law will get better soon” and went back with Cheng’s mother, not like the timid one who knew the consequences of being discovered. He had to sneak into his room to take care of him.
He and Cheng Yuan were relatively silent for a while, and finally the other party said, “Are you feeling better?”
After he nodded, he added, “My grandfather and I were outside, and I came back when I heard that you were awake.”
