“I’m sorry, miss.” The subordinate immediately bent down to pick it up. Gu Xiaochen squatted down first, but said softly, “It’s not your fault, I was not careful.”
Zhou Chengze lowered his head, also I saw the ticket. Looking at the time of the ticket and the terminal of the flight, New York, USA? His eyebrows flicked and said nothing. And she hastily packed everything into her backpack and hugged her ticket tightly around her chest.
“You also go back to rest.” Zhou Chengze said.
Gu Xiaochen shook his head, “I’m going to stay.”
“You go back to change your clothes and organize yourself. Otherwise, Aunt Fen will wake up and see you like this, she will be scared. If Aunt Fen wakes up, I will give it immediately You call. “Zhou Chengze glanced at her messy clothes stained with blood, frowning and said,” Xiao Zhao, you will take Miss Gu back. “
” Yes, young master. “
Gu Xiaochen hesitated and felt it without having to look at herself. At this moment she was so disoriented. She turned her head to look at Lin Fen, and then took her steps, following the subordinate’s departure.
Walking out of the hospital, a burst of cold air struck her, sobering her whole body. Sitting in the car back to the apartment building where he lived, Gu Xiaochen leaned against the window and closed his eyes tiredly. He took out his phone and glanced at it. There was no phone or message. Slender fingers gently touched the number keys, but in the order of the numbers in his mind.
That is his number.
I’m afraid I won’t call it in the future.
Back in the apartment building, Gu Xiaochen stopped involuntarily and looked at his apartment. Knowing that he would not be there, she still stepped forward and knocked on the door. Even after waiting, use the key to open the door. Opening the door, it turned out to be a deserted room, and he didn’t know where to go.
After taking a bath in the small apartment in the attic, Gu Xiaochen hurriedly changed to clean clothes.
Looking around, the sorted luggage was so lonely that she had to lay it there, and she ripped off the covers on the furniture again before she hurried to the hospital.
After spending nearly three hours back and forth, Lin Fen in the ward had not yet woken up. She fell asleep, but her face was not as pale as Fang Cai. Gu Xiaochen sat on the chair and gently held her hand. She hadn’t slept all night, and her previous mental state was tense again. At the moment, she eased up, and she was a little sleepy.
Unconsciously, she fell down on the edge of the bed, watching Lin Fen fall asleep.
The sun was lazy on a rainy Sunday.
Lin Fen’s fingers moved suddenly, and such a slight touch also awakened Gu Xiaochen.
Gu Xiaochen looked up at her in a trance, only to see that her eyelids flickered, as if to open. But because there is no strength, it can’t be opened. She was so excited that she stood up suddenly. Looking down at her face, she smiled with tears in her eyes, and said softly, “Mom, you are awake.”
The door of the ward was gently opened by no one.
Zhou Chengze was carrying porridge in his hand. He stood at the door and heard Gu Xiaochen’s soft female voice. He murmured, “Mom, I’m not going to the United States …”
…… Lin Fen fell
asleep for two days before his physical energy recovered. She can only eat some liquids, and her body is still very weak. The car accident hit her head, so the brain might hurt. Most of the time, she is sleeping and talking is also a problem.
At the Commercial Bank, Gu Xiaochen had already asked for leave.
The following week, she was with Lin Fen, feeding her drinking water and feeding her porridge. Every day there is praise soup, she likes to watch Lin Fen drink the soup she made with her own hands. Seeing her recover a little bit of health, the smile that she had not seen for a few days was revealed again. In a few days, Lin Fen’s condition was obviously improved, and the time for soberness was getting longer and longer, and he was able to speak briefly.
On a sunny afternoon, Zhou Mosheng and Zhou Yaru came to visit.
Zhou Yaru carried a thermos, as if something had been prepared. She opened the bottle cap and the aroma was indiscriminately in the room. She poured a bowl of hot soup, brought it to Lin Fen, and said with a smile, “Aunt Fen, the doctor said that you can only drink some liquids, so I specially prepared the soup for you. You drink and see.”
She wanted to do it by herself, saw Gu Xiaochen standing beside her, and then handed over to her. “
Let’s feed it.” Gu Xiaochen took his hands and fed Lin Fen bite by bite.
“Aunt Fen, isn’t it good?” Zhou Yaru asked cautiously, looking forward. Lin Fen nodded, “It’s delicious.”
“Really?” Zhou Yaru was very happy, and Zhou Mosheng said in a deep voice, “This girl is watching Xiao Chen know how to make soup and has been learning these days. The craft is definitely not as good as Xiao Chen, There is
room for improvement. ” ” Dad! “Zhou Yaru pouted, Gu Xiaochen smiled. She looked at Zhou Yaru, and Zhou Yaru also looked at her at this time, shouting, “Aren’t you just asking for a week’s leave. You’re going to work tomorrow, and you don’t have time to cook it. Leave it to me to cook the soup “
Gu Xiaochen nodded, Lin Fen took her hand.
The breeze is blowing slowly, and this bright May seems to be coming to an end.
At four o’clock in the afternoon, Zhou Yaru simply drove her out of the ward. Gu Xiaochen knew that she wanted to let herself go to rest. Looking at Lin Fen’s health, she said hello and left with peace of mind. After leaving the hospital, Gu Xiaochen walked alone on the street.
It was indeed a bit tiring, but she didn’t want to go back.
The days of early summer are much longer than those of autumn and winter. So at six o’clock, it was still bright. Gu Xiaochen came to the window of a shop unconsciously, it was a jewelry shop. Looking at the ring displayed in the window, she suddenly thought of the silver ring.
Deliberately placed in the potted plant and returned to the ring in her hand.
Gu Xiaochen reached out his hand, and his index finger stroked on the glass window.
Two words, each stroke is used with great care.
Those two words-Ahe.
“Assistant Gu, are you here?”
“Well, I haven’t seen you for a long time.”
Entering the office of the investment banking department, Gu Xiaochen greeted all the way. When I returned to work, my colleagues inevitably cared about inquiries. Xiaowen ran to Gu Xiaochen’s position and whispered, “Assistant Gu, are you feeling unwell? How is it now?”
“It’s okay.” Hearing her say, Gu Xiaochen simply followed her words. .
“Then I’m going to work, you pay attention to your body.” Xiao Wending slaps a few words and returns to his office.
Gu Xiaochen got up to make a cup of coffee, and then knocked on the door of the manager’s office. She explained a few words to the manager Cai Hua, and Cai Hua did not say much, only to let her work well. When exiting the office, the central air conditioner is still blowing cold wind. From time to time in the busy office, you can hear shouts and the sound of fingers tapping the keyboard.
She should be used to this busy working environment.
Taking a deep breath, Gu Xiaochen calmly started to work.
At about ten o’clock, Xiaowen secretly bought a few cups of milk tea and ran up happily. Distributing milk tea to several colleagues in a hurry, she walked towards Gu Xiaochen with a cup of milk tea, too late to put down the milk tea, close to her ear, God said secretly, “Gu Assistant, your boyfriend is waiting for you outside.”
Boyfriend? Who? Gu Xiaochen’s brain was hot, and at this time he would have hoped to be that person.
Looking at Xiaowen’s sly smile at her, Gu Xiaochen got up hesitantly and walked out of the office to meet the “mysterious man”.
Walking across the corridor, I saw a tall and long figure turned his back.
A row of windows in the corridor, the sun shone down like this, sprinkled on him.
Because Xu heard footsteps, the man turned back slowly and turned to face her.
He smiled warmly, his cool short hair fluttering with the wind. The golden sunlight hit half of his profile, and outlined the handsome silhouette, so beautiful. He saw her, squinted at her, and smiled slightly, just like the spring breeze, so comfortable, people couldn’t help but smile.
Gu Xiaochen looked at him and smiled, “Hi.”
“Hi. He went abroad a few days ago and just came back today.” Yan Xudong explained briefly, and walked in front of her, “Eating together at noon.”
Gu Xiaochen nodded, “Good.”
Wait for lunch break, Gu Xiaochen went to the appointed restaurant to meet.
It’s a western restaurant, and the restaurant is very bright.
Looking around, I saw Yan Xudong sitting there. Such a handsome and handsome man, her bright black eyes watched her come slowly. Gu Xiaochen walked towards him under the guidance of the waitress, Yan Xudong stood up and gently pulled the chair away for her.
“Sit down,” his gentleman said, beckoning her to take a seat.
Gu Xiaochen whispered gratitude, his smile a little shy.
Yan Xudong sat back in his place and told the waiter to serve. The two had a face-to-face meal and the atmosphere was very harmonious and peaceful. The dinner was a steak, and Yan Xudong reached out to take her plate and cut it into small pieces for her. Gu Xiaochen spoke up, and said softly, “Xudong, I can do it myself.”
” I’m not lazy now?” Yan Xudong teased, Gu Xiaochen lowered his head and said casually, “Always learn by yourself, sorry Always trouble others. “A
simple sentence, two words” others “.
The speaker is unconscious, but the listener is intentional.
Yan Xudong’s elegant and elegant appearance is still calm, with a trace of loneliness in his eyes.
The two dined quietly, chatted indiscriminately, and talked about the anecdotes of the past. And he would mention that person from time to time, mentioning him, Yao Yongxin and his childhood.
At this time, Gu Xiaochen would stop and listen carefully.
“Lian hasn’t talked since she was a child. Sometimes it’s hard to hear him speak for a week. Not to mention laugh. Later …” Yan Xudong paused, as if skipping something deliberately, Youyou said, “It was only later It has changed a little bit, and it’s a little more talkative. “
Gu Xiaochen’s eyes narrowed, and the whole person was extremely quiet.
“Yingxin is the most powerful. In fact, she is younger than me and Lian, but she has a superb reading performance and both skip grades. She and Haoyang were in the first grade before, but they followed us in the same class after jumping. They were There is no
room for fire and water, seeing the other party is the kind of enemy. ” ” Why? “Gu Xiaochen asked curiously.
“Because Uncle Wu prefers Yongxin and thinks she is smart. But then we are all older, and now think about it, is it quite interesting?” Yan Xudong asked with a smile, noting that her eyes were a bit darker than before. .
Gu Xiaochen smiled, “Sister Yongxin and …” almost shouted “Vice President”, and immediately changed his mouth, then said, “He Yang President, they were not in harmony as a child?”
“They are the enemy.” Yan Xudong spit out these words The topic changed and turned to someone, “Lian has gone to the United States, in fact, it is more suitable for him.”
“The capital of the world.” Gu Xiaochen blurted out, Yan Xudong’s eyes narrowed, she lowered her head and said softly, ” New York, the financial and economic center of the United States. There is indeed a good place. “
Yan Xudong was silent, took a drink and took a sip.
He did not mention which city, but she knew. Sure enough … After having
lunch, the two walked out of the restaurant together.
Gu Xiaochen walked quietly towards the company building, looking up at the sky.
That city should be his paradise, and the birds yearn for the sky, so he will fly freely.
Yan Xudong looked at her leaving, took out her mobile phone and pressed the IDD number.
The phone was connected for a long time, and he said lightly, “Lian, I will have my birthday next month. If you don’t plan to come …” Hold the phone tightly, watching the figure disappear in the corner, said quietly, “So She is mine. “In the
following days, Gu Xiaochen was busy at work and had to spend as much time as possible with Lin Fen.
Lin Fen stayed in the hospital for half a month, and Gu Xiaochen was also familiar in the hospital. From time to time, you can see a simple girl with a simple look and a beautiful look who ran to the hospital. She wore a pair of big glasses and covered most of her face, but her skin was fair.
Usually, she will carry a thermos.
In the thermos is the soup she praised herself.
When she saw the doctor and nurse, she would
greet them very politely, “Hello.” Sometimes, Gu Xiaochen also bought more fruits and gave them to the doctors and nurses on duty.
Today, half a month later, the doctors and nurses in the hospital gradually got an impression of the girl. She always smiles faintly, even if she doesn’t have a beautiful appearance, but the shy look will make people feel good, even like a pure little girl, she is so pure.
What is even more rare is that she still has to travel a long way after work, so come to the hospital to visit Lin Fen so considerately.
Lin Fen’s ward is a luxury ward.
The deluxe ward with complete facilities, ordinary people can’t afford it, and this one stayed for half a month. The nurses would inadvertently hear her call Lin Fen “mother”, and they also called Lin Fen “Mrs. Zhou”.
The three of Zhou’s family are all very well-dressed, and at a glance they know that their family background is good.
The nurses in the hospital also talked about it privately, what does that handsome and handsome man have to do with her?
Different surnames are definitely not siblings.
Is it an unmarried couple?
It happened that Gu Xiaochen and Zhou Chengze appeared together in the ward, and two nurses performed routine examinations for Lin Fen and kept records. One of the round-faced nurses looked at Gu Xiaochen and couldn’t help but ask, “Miss Gu, when will you marry Mr. Zhou, remember to invite us to eat wedding candy.”
Hearing the nurse’s question, Gu Xiaochen was drinking and was choked immediately , Coughing repeatedly. The water in the cup also spilled out, and the sleeves were slightly wet.
They even misunderstood that they are a pair?
“No, we are not.” Gu Xiaochen denied awkwardly, but did not know how to call the relationship between them.
Zhou Chengze said nothing, just walked into the bathroom and took a clean towel and walked to her. He handed the towel to her, and
Shen Sheng said, “Wipe it.” “Thank you.” Gu Xiaochen took the towel and was embarrassed to refuse. But when he looked up, he was even more embarrassed. The towel was heavy in his hand. Zhou Chengze’s move made the nurses smile at each other, and they didn’t say much anymore.
Lin Fen was lying on the hospital bed, looking at them and smiling.
At this time, someone knocked on the door of the room, “Boom —“
“I’ll open the door.” Like looking for a step, Gu Xiaochen immediately answered the door.
The door opened slowly, but Gu Xiaochen was shocked.
Standing outside the ward is a woman with a fresh and beautiful appearance. She has a standard melon seed face, and her eyes are large and bright, as if she can speak. She wore a beautiful short skirt, the emerald green color, let people feel the mood of summer. She wore only a thin coat on the outside and a white lady cardigan.
She held a bouquet of flowers in her arms and a fruit basket in her hands.
“Gu … Xiaochen?” The woman was equally suspicious, but she first shouted her name.
Gu Xiaochen recovered, and smiled in consternation. “Sister Baihui?”
“I didn’t knock on the wrong door? Is this Mrs. Zhou’s ward?” Bai Hui looked at the eye ward number and was confused. That’s right!
“Sister Baihui, you didn’t knock on the wrong door. Here is …” Gu Xiaochen’s voice slowed down and said softly, “Ms. Zhou’s ward.”
Gu Xiaochen sideways gave up and Bai Hui entered the ward hesitantly. Glancing at Zhou Chengze, her smile suddenly brightened and shouted softly, “Cheng Ze.”
Zhou Chengze saw her, silently, and Shen Sheng said, “You are here.”
Bai Hui walked to Zhou Chengze and turned his head to look at Lin Fen lying on the bed. He said generously, “Auntie is good, my name is Baihui. I heard Ruru say that the aunt is sick, so I came to see. What to buy, just buy some fruits. “
Lin Fen looked at this girl who suddenly appeared in front of her, suddenly stunned, and then smiled and said,” Miss Bai, you are too polite. Come and visit me, I am already very Happy. There are fruits here, so you do n’t have to spend money in the future. “
” It doesn’t matter, it’s just a few things. “Bai Hui smiled, Yu Guang glanced at Gu Xiaochen and asked,” Xiao Chen, why are you here? “
“Aunt Fen is her relative.” Zhou Chengze said quietly before Gu Xiaochen.
“It turns out that way.” Bai Hui nodded.
Two other nurses in the ward took their temperature and greeted several people in the ward and left.
“I still have something to do, then I will go first.” Gu Xiaochen picked up the satchel on the chair and said softly.
Bai Hui said, “Xiao Chen, leave a number. It will be convenient for you to contact later.”
“Have a good rest.” The two exchanged numbers, Gu Xiaochen said lightly with Lin Fen’s hand. She nodded slightly towards Zhou Chengze and Bai Hui, and then left alone.
After she left, Bai Hui enthusiastically cut the apples for Lin Fen. She washed the fruit knife and chose a red apple. She peeled the peel while looking for the topic and said, “Eating apples is good for your health. Auntie needs to eat more. By the way, when will the aunty be discharged from the hospital? Be sure to remember to tell me that I will also take the auntie out of the hospital.”
“It’s too troublesome a. ” “
no trouble is not trouble. “
Bai Hui just keep saying, LIN Fen crashed from time to time.
“Auntie, Xiaochen and I are in the same school. I am also in the Department of Finance, but I am a little bigger than her. It turns out that my aunt is Xiaochen ’s family. I will ask … “Bai Huizheng said, Zhou Chengze, who was originally standing quietly on the side, suddenly said aloud,” Aunt Fen is going to rest, I will send you back. “
Apple cut in half, Bai Hui’s hand was stiff and faint I noticed something was wrong.
