After Zhu WuXin left the Marriage matching gathering, she fell deep into a coma.
Xiao Lian went and brought WuXin to Doctor Lu’s place. The moment Doctor Lu saw her and that her body was completely soaked with water, he didn’t care much about minor details, called Xiao Lian to help her undress and immediately applied medicine to the wounds.
Xiao Lian was busy looking for food, so she didn’t know what exactly happened to Zhu WuXin. When Doctor Lu asked about it, she doesn’t know how to answer. Ever since Xiao Lian met Zhu WuXin, she have never seen her living well even for a while. It’s always this thing or that thing happening, like ‘before the first wave subsides, a new wave rises'.
Xiao Lian really don’t know what is the reason that lets her to continue to brave it down. If it was herself, perhaps she will rather choose suicide, than to suffer this kind of misery.
Doctor Lu pulled out the silver needle, then put it away. He patted Xiao Lian who was crying out floods of tears, and said “Jing Chu wasn’t a person to easily compromise.”
“I believe her daughter is just the same. Believe in your Miss, no matter how big the challenge she comes across in front, she will be able to hold on.”
Xiao Lian wiped her tears and nodded.
“Doctor Lu, fortunately you are here. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know what will happen to my Miss.”
“All right, you should go and help her change into clean clothes. Remember, definitely cannot let her wound come in contact with water again.”
After finished saying that, Doctor Lu went out of the room.
Xiao Lian carefully helped Zhu WuXin put on the clothes. At home, Zhu WuXin has never had a new dress, it’s all the remainder from what the other sisters have worn. The ugly ones were given to her, and also when there were extras from making the servants’ clothing. But in Doctor Lu’s house, unexpectedly there are plenty of beautiful female clothes. The workmanship is delicate and exquisite. From one look, it’s obviously top grade. Although for a thin and weak Zhu WuXin, these clothes were a bit loose but the good thing was they looked new. At least when worn on the body, she won’t look like a maidservant anymore.
After Xiao Lian finished dressing up Zhu WuXin, Doctor Lu returned. He fed her some medicine, then sat on the chair leisurely drinking tea.
“Don’t worry, as long as she rest properly, she won’t have any problem.”
Doctor Lu poured a cup of tea for Xiao Lian, when he saw that she was looking deeply worried.
Taking a glance at Zhu Wuxin, then only turned her head around, Xiao Lian quietly asked, “Doctor Lu, you know Miss’s mother? What kind of woman was she?”
“We are old friends.”
Talking about her mother, a shadow flashed past Doctor Lu’s face.
“She was a beautiful and kind girl. Unfortunately, she was ‘stubborn regardless right or wrong'.”
“If only she would listen to my words back in those early years, WuXin wouldn’t have to suffer these grievance today.”
“She parted without burden, but left WuXin alone here in this world to suffer.”
The doubts in Xiao Lian making her more puzzled after Doctor Lu’s word.
She wanted to ask more, but out of sudden a door knocking sound ‘kou kou kou’ can be heard, coming from outside the door.
Xiao Lian was surprised and frightened. She afraid that it might be someone from the House to look for trouble with Zhu WuXin.
Doctor Lu put down his tea cup, and walked to the door asking, “Who is it?”
