Chapter 206 The Old Drama Was Now on the Show
Murong Yunxi turned on the bedside lamp, and the dim light instantly illuminated the room, wiping out the darkness. At the same time, the red face of Gu Yuxuan jumped into the sight of Murong Yunxi. Gu Yuxuan’s eyebrows furrowed and the sweat on her forehead was shining like stars under the light. Her lips had already been dry and wrinkled.
It could be seen that Gu Yuxuan’s sleep was disturbed and it seemed that she was whispering something while dreaming. Murong Yunxi couldn’t hear her words clearly.
Murong Yunxi stood up and found the medicine box. She first measured Gu Yuxuan’s body temperature. The high temperature of forty-one degrees made Murong Yunxi’s heart suddenly stop.
She quickly took out her mobile phone and called Cui Pengrui, who was the family doctor of Murong Family. She was qualified to call him at any time.
After the phone call, she found the antipyretics. She tried to feed them to Gu Yuxuan first and then waited for Dr. Cui to come.
But at this moment, Gu Yuxuan had been completely unconscious because of the fever, which made it almost impossible to feed the medicine to her. Unable to take the medicine, then Murong Yunxi had to turn to physical cooling first. Murong Yunxi took a basin of warm water, and then she covered a warm towel on Gu Yuxuan’s forehead. Soon she brought the medical alcohol and the cotton balls to wipe the palm of Gu Yuxuan.
When Niannian had a fever, she often helped cool down her temperature in such a physical way.
Cui Pengrui soon came to Gu Yuxuan’s home with a few medical staff. Although Murong Yunxi had done a lot for Gu Yuxuan, Gu Yuxuan’s body did not cool down at all, which made Murong Yunxi really anxious.
She eagerly grabbed Cui Pengrui and asked, “Dr. Cui, please come and see why her fever didn’t go? Antipyretics can’t be fed to her at all, and this physical cooling doesn’t work.”
Cui Pengrui frowned and stepped forward to conduct a detailed inspection of Gu Yuxuan’s situation.
“Do a blood test for her to see what caused the fever!”
Cui Pengrui ordered the nurse behind him, and then turned to look at Murong Yunxi and said, “Xiao Xi, don’t worry too much. The problem would not be very serious. You can rest assured since I’m here.”
Murong Yunxi nodded, but her heart could not rest at all. Gu Yuxuan’s current appearance made her very worried. Gu Yuxuan’s body was always good, and she rarely got a fever like this abruptly.
Murong Yunxi sat on the bedside of Gu Yuxuan, holding Gu Yuxuan’s hands, which were now as warm as a stove. Suddenly Gu Yuxuan’s hand clenched the hand of Murong Yunxi as if she wanted to grasp the something. Such strong strength made Murong Yunxi felt that her fingers were aching and might be hurt as if the bones were almost crushed.
Gu Yuxuan suddenly began to whisper in her mouth, and Murong Yunxi bowed her head to Gu Yuxuan’s lips, carefully recognizing the whispering words in her mouth at the moment.
“Xu, Xu…” Gu Yuxuan repeatedly called with such complicated emotions in her voice, which seemed to be a mixture of anxiety, insecurity, worries, and reluctance.
Murong Yunxi turned to look at Gu Chengkang who stood at the door. At this moment, Gu Chengkang was nervously looking at the situation in the room, which showed his concern for Gu Yuxuan at the moment.
Murong Yunxi looked at Gu Chengkang and hesitated. Finally, she asked, “Uncle Gu, I have a ruthless request and I don’t know whether I should say it or not?”
“Just say it! Don’t worry! As long as it can be helpful to Xuanxuan’s illness, I definitely won’t object!” Gu Chengkang now had obviously completely messed up at the moment, making promises without thinking.
Murong Yunxi paused for a moment, and then looked at Gu Chengkang calmly. She said, “I want to let Murong Xu come here.”
“What! Why do you want to ask that guy to come? No! This is a definite no!”
“But you just said that as long as it could be helpful to Xuanxuan’s illness, you will not object!”
“Xiao Xi, you know the truth here. Then how can you make such a request?”
“I know the truth in this matter, but Xuanxuan doesn’t know. I only know that she wants to see him now. She is having a high fever now and there is no sign that the fever will go. It is very dangerous for Xuanxuan if things go on like this.”
“Xiao Xi, I always think that you are a reasonable and considerate child and this is the reason why I told you about that thing. However, now that you have already known this and still chose to make such a request, I had to change my mind and I can’t accept the request!”
“Uncle Gu, I understand your concerns. I don’t support or disagree with your thoughts. Now, I cannot judge your concerns. But now Xuanxuan is so sick that don’t you think it would be better if we discuss these things later?”
Gu Chengkang looked at Murong Yunxi’s firm eyes. Looking at the painful expression on Gu Yuxuan’s face because of the high fever at this moment, there was a hint of hesitation in his heart.
He was silent for a moment. Then he sighed and soon walked out the door.
Murong Yunxi knew that although Gu Chengkang did not agree now, he did not show his objection to it. His current attitude had already indicated his attitude. He would temporarily turn a blind eye to it.
Murong Yunxi quickly took out her mobile phone and called Murong Xu, but the phone had been ringing for a long time and no one had answered it. Murong Yunxi immediately called again, and no one answered as well.
In desperation, Murong Yunxi phoned the Psychological Hospital where Murong Xu was working and the hospital’s front desk nurse picked up the phone. She said, “Hey, hello, it is …”
Murong Yunxi did not wait for the nurse to finish her words. She directly interrupted and said, “I am looking for Murong Xu.”
“Hey, Miss, who are you? Do you have an appointment?”
“Please directly tell Murong Xu that now Gu Yuxuan has a high fever of more than 40 degrees and she is already dying. Let him go to the address shown in the text message on the mobile phone.”
Murong Yunxi hung up the phone without waiting for any reaction from the side of the phone. Hanging up the phone, Murong Yunxi edited a message and sent it to Murong Xu. After doing all this, she finally put the phone down.
Murong Yunxi believed that at this moment, Murong Xu had received her message and would definitely come here by car, driving so fast as if he was driving an aeroplane. She knew that he couldn’t let Gu Yuxuan go in his mind.
While waiting, Murong Yunxi continued to help cool down Gu Yuxuan’s temperature in a physical way and Cui Pengrui was doing blood sample testing.
Her guess didn’t go wrong. As Murong Yunxi had expected, after a while, Murong Xu arrived. When Murong Xu slammed the doorbell, the maid opened the door for him. Murong Yunxi estimated that Gu Chengkang did not want to meet with Murong Xu, thus he had already returned to his room. The maid directly brought Murong Xu to the room of Gu Yuxuan.
When walking to the door, Murong Xu’s anxiety suddenly turned into nervousness. He didn’t expect that he would not dare to enter the door. He took a moment wandering at the door and finally took a deep breath, pushing the door open.
When the door opened for a moment, his eyes were directly attracted by the delicate figure on the bed. The person he had thought about for days and nights was now lying on the bed at the moment, and he could not move his feet, frozen in the same place.
Murong Yunxi turned to look at the door, and Murong Xu was now quite sloppy at the moment. He had some blue stubble on his cheeks, and chin and the dark circles under his eyes were hard to cover even with glasses. The hair was not taken good care, hanging down naturally. The clothes were covered with wrinkles as if it hadn’t been changed for days. The shirttails were wanging on the waist side casually. There was a little stain on the chest. The shoes were covered with dust. The whole person looked like a drowned mouse.
Such Murong Xu made Murong Yunxi astonished. In her eyes, Murong Xu always looked like a gentleman, elegant and refined. The beards were always clean and tidy and the hair was neatly arranged. His clothes were always clean and flat, and the shirts were well-organized, being tucked in the waist of trousers. Also, his leather shoes had always been spotless. At this moment, he almost looked like another person.
Murong Yunxi looked at Murong Xu, who was stupidly standing at the door. She blamed unpleasantly, “Are you going to stand there all day stupidly like a guard? If you don’t come in, go back!”
This time, Murong Xu hesitantly strode in. He went straight to the bed of Gu Yuxuan, and suddenly his eyes turned red.
Such Gu Yuxuan made his heart painful. In just a few days, how did such a lively and healthy girl become like this?
“Okay, don’t pretend to be a faithful lover. Xuanxuan is always calling your name. Come over and talk to her.”
Murong Yunxi stood up and gave the position to Murong Xu, and then she put the towel into the hands of Murong Xu.
Murong Xu took the towel and then sat down. With his trembled finger, he wiped the cheeks of Gu Yuxuan gently. Seemingly, he had heard the calling of Gu Yuxuan.
The looming voice was hard to recognize, but Murong Xu got it all at once. She was calling him. The voice came into his ears like a curse, making him quite uncomfortable. His mind creaked and the voice echoed in his mind for a long time.
Murong Xu suddenly grasped Gu Yuxuan’s hands. The hot temperature not only burned his hand but also burned his heart. His heart was filled with burning pain as if he was ironing his heart with soldering iron. He was almost suffocated because of his painful heart.
“Xuanxuan, I am Xu. I am coming! Why don’t you take good care of yourself? We just haven’t seen each other for a few days. Why have you let yourself into such a situation? How can I let you go in such a situation?”
Unconsciously, Murong Xu’s tears slid gently, and the teardrops like beans dribbled on the back of Gu Yuxuan’s hand. It was hard to tell whether it was because she had heard the words of Murong Xu, or it was because she received the love of Murong Xu, her hands tightened and interlocked with Murong Xu’s fingers. It seemed that their hearts were therefore connected.
A teardrop fell down from the corner of Gu Yuxuan’s eyes. The picture of the two of them interlocked, silently weeping, also touched the people in the room in no time. Everyone didn’t dare to look at them, turning their eyes aside.
Even Murong Yunxi had an illusion for a moment. The old-fashioned drama of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai was on stage now. They were separating a pair of lovers who were bitterly in love with each other, and they now seemed to be the wicked ones in such kind of dramas.
But at this moment, Murong Yunxi did hesitate. Were they really doing the right things for them? However, considering the characters of Second Aunt and the hostile relationship between Second Uncle and Uncle Gu, and then considering the relationship between Gu Yuxuan and Murong Xu, could they really live with these things? If they couldn’t stand, would the pain be more profound at that time than now?
At least now they had good feelings for each other in their minds, which was so sincere. Unfortunately, the interference of others made them powerless. But if they know about these things, how could they still love each other so sincerely?
While Murong Yunxi was lost in her random thoughts, Cui Pengrui came in. He frowned and looked at Murong Xu and Gu Yuxuan, and then waved at Murong Yunxi.
Murong Yunxi got the hint and followed Cui Pengrui to the door and looked at Cui Pengrui seriously, waiting for the words he was going to say. It would not be a trivial matter since he had asked her to get outside the room.
Cui Pengrui pushed the glasses on his nose and whispered in a low voice, “The situation is a bit complicated now!”
