Sam was explaining the results but Ye Yuwei could only listen helplessly as she did not understand most of the medical jargon.
“From the results, we can see that Miss Gu’s cells have already mutated. Fortunately, these mutated blood cells are harmless to Miss Gu’s body, so you don’t have to worry about that. On the contrary, the mutated cells seem to adapt very well to her genetic deformation.”
Ye Yuwei understood this statement, but it did not settle her anguish. “What you’re saying is that the cells will continue to mutate in the future?”
“We find that this type of mutation is somehow unnatural and we are trying our best to find the actual cause behind this. Based on what the Master told us, the mortality age for a child with this type of genetic deformation is no more than five years but it didn’t kill your daughter in the previous onset, so we can only conclude that the counterattack of the cell mutation against the genetic deformation occurred at that time.” Sam removed his gloves, his expression serious.
“That means, you are not sure when the next mutation will happen?” asked Gu Juexi, concerned.
“Sorry for not being able to answer that right now since we have yet to find the cause of this mutation,” stated Sam apologetically, “However, we will not give up on our mission. This is a very rare case and we will certainly work hard to find a breakthrough.”
Gu Juexi told Sam and his team to rest. Ye Yuwei could not persuade herself to calm down despite the positive prognosis.
Gu Juexi gripped Ye Yuwei’s shoulders when he returned. “Now that we see light at the end of the tunnel, we don’t have to worry for the time being. It’s going to be alright.”
Ye Yuwei nodded weakly. “Same goes to you, you should really go now.”
“You’re coming with me,” Gu Juexi announced and pulled her to her feet.
“Me?” Ye Yuwei uttered in shock.
“How can Mr. Gu attend a party without his missus? Does Mrs. Gu want other women to take her place?” Gu Juexi teased. He led Ye Yuwei into the room, packed their wallets and IDs, and informed Wen Jie about their departure.
Xixi was sleeping soundly. Ye Yuwei kissed her forehead and turned to the other side to kiss her son. She stood up and saw Wen Jie walk into the room.
“Mom, we’ll be back tomorrow night.”
“Go. Take your time, don’t worry about the kids,” Wen Jie said calmly.
En route to the airport, Ye Yuwei looked at Gu Juexi who was behind the wheels and said, “I almost feel like I belong here.”
In the end, they still had to return to the big city.
The fast-moving big city that was stressful and exhaustive.
Gu Juexi returned his gaze to her. He would have the same opinion if he did not have to take those bitter medications.
They arrived at the airport and retrieved their tickets. Ye Yuwei gazed at the man who had been holding her hand since they arrived at the airport and sighed gratefully. He was no longer the larger-than-life character who expected to be treated like a deity.
Their red-eye flight was at three in the morning. Gu Juexi made sure Ye Yuwei was seated comfortably before he went to his own seat. They boarded quickly since they did not have any luggage with them.
“Better get some sleep if you’re feeling tired. We’ll arrive by morning,” said Gu Juexi as he pressed her head to his shoulder gently.
Ye Yuwei reached over to hold his hand with their fingers interlaced and said, “Suddenly, I feel like you are no longer the unreachable demigod that I can only look up to. Right now, I can finally hold your hand.” She shook their hands that were interlaced together.
The memory of them on different floors swam into their minds. Back then, he was at the top and she was below him.
There had been an insurmountable gap between them.
