Chapter 27 part 1
I stayed by Chu Kong’s bed for three days and three nights. This is the first time I saw arrogant Chu Kong being so weak and pale. I’m still really not used to it, even though he’s a woman right now. So well behaved laying in bed, letting people look at him, made me think about the time he was Lu Hai Kong.
Very strong and yet very fragile; only letting his guard down when he’s with me…….even though he’s a woman now. Even I myself didn’t know that I’ll panic like that when I saw him bleed. It felt like the sky was falling down. It’s my first time feeling such a strange feeling……even though the other party is a woman.
I covered my face and sighed. I didn’t know that after that sigh, the person lying in bed for three days without moving suddenly groaned. I was startled, immediately moved closer to his head and said softly: “Chu Kong, princess Kong? Are you awake?”
His eyelids moved and with extreme difficulty he opened his eyes. I stared at him and was afraid that he’ll lose consciousness again.
Chu Kong narrowed his eyes and stared at me for a while. Suddenly his eyes closed again. My heart panicked. It couldn’t be that just now he used his last power? This can’t happen! I used my fingers to open his already closed eyelids. Against the whites of his eyes, I called out: “No! Don’t ! Don’t die!”
“Die…..don’t die, will it go according to what I say……”
Chu Kong voice was hoarse and weak. He rolled his eyes. I finally can see his pupils. My mind is at peace now. I let go of his hand, took a deep breath and said: “When you kept rolling your eyes, I was afraid that you were dying.”
Chu Kong glanced at me and immediately turned away. His voice sounded quite disgusted when he said: “The moment I woke up and saw a dirty rough man crouched by my bed really sucks.”
I knew that he wouldn’t die when he spoke with such a tone. The big rock that has been pressing my heart finally fell down. I didn’t care about his attitude, sat on the bed and laughed: “It’s good that you’re alive.”
Chu Kong’s eyebrows moved. He looked at me sideways.
“Were……were you really worried about me?”
It seemed like he didn’t expect that I would answer so straightforwardly, Chu Kong didn’t say anything. He buried his head in the quilt. Then I saw that his ears turned red again.
I wiped my sad tears.
“If you’re gone, who’ll run to the front to protect me against knives? By then I’ll be dead and need to kiss Yanwang’s cheeks in the netherworld. Beside you already kissed him. It’s terrorizing thinking about it, right?”
The room was quiet for a while. Chu Kong pulled his head out of the quilt. He glared at me and ruthlessly said: “Get out.”
“Out to where?”
I suddenly realized.
“Look at me being confused. I should’ve let the physician check your pulse first!”
I hold Chu Kong’s hand tightly: “I know that you’re sad about losing the child, but in life, there’s nothing that won’t pass. Every time when there’s something difficult, just think about it as enriching our wealth.”
I looked at Chu Kong’s pale face that is a little dark now.
“You must be strong!”
Chu Kong used all his strength and pulled his hand away. Trembling and pointing at the door while gritting his teeth, he said: “Out!”
I did as he wished and left the room. I called physician Zhang and several maids into the room. I earnestly said: “The princess just lost the child. Inevitably, she’ll be depressed. You serve her well.”
Even if the general’s body was made from iron, keeping watch over Chu Kong for three days without rest, I couldn’t help but be tired. I went back to my room and went straight to my bed. I closed my eyes and was about to sleep. In this peaceful darkness, I can hear the beating of my heart more clearly. I touched my somewhat hot cheek. I looked up at the sky and sighed. The situation is a bit bad, ah……
“You…….worry about me?”
Thinking about this conversation, I couldn’t help but cover my mouth. It simply felt like I blurted it out. Not even covering will help.
What’s wrong with me? What went wrong?
XXZ sure knows how to break the mood (sigh). Chu Kong is darn cute with all that blushing (I’ve a soft spot for alpha males but who are also shy hihi).
