The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (20)
Bai Qingshui added, “Menggui and Weiwei are now engaged. Starting today, Menggui will join the Bai clan’s group for work.”
There was no objection.
Xu Menggui’s plan was proceeding smoothly.
But there was no joy in his heart. In fact, he felt dispirited.
He stood up, and Bai Weiwei followed along and applauded happily. “In the future we’ll be one family, Menggui.”
Xu Menggui saw Bai Qingshui’s indifferent but appreciative gaze.
And he looked at Bai Weiwei’s smile of undisguised joy.
Full of goodwill.
Unconsciously, his heart skipped several beats.
It was like a wonderful dream, one he had never experienced–the warmth of a family just within reach.
He slowly reached out, wanting to hug Bai Weiwei.
【Ding, male lead’s favorability: 20.】
Just as Xu Menggui’s fingers touched Bai Weiwei’s shoulder.
Bai Qingshui’s expression suddenly changed. He clutched his chest, wheezing out a few breaths.
Then he strained to get up.
But then he fell to the floor, smashing the porcelain on the table with him.
Bai Weiwei screamed, “Dad!”
She rushed over.
Xu Menggui’s fingers touched emptiness.
And he also returned to reality. The previous dream-like family warmth gradually disappeared.
Finally, only ice-cold triumph remained in his eyes.
The medicine came into effect.
Bai Qingshui’s heart was not in good condition. As long as some special untraceable drugs were used to stimulate his body.
He would immediately have a heart attack.
And future investigations would come up empty.
Suppressing the pride in his eyes, he quickly turned and rushed over, helping Bai Qingshui up. He said anxiously, “Quickly, to the hospital.”
Bai Qingshui swiftly entered the intensive care unit.
The situation was very bad.
Bai Weiwei sat in the hallway with an anxious face, her fingers trembling. She was at her wit’s end.
Xu Menggui handled the hospital admission procedures before sitting down beside her.
Bai Weiwei hugged him, crying. “Nothing will happen to Dad, right?”
The expression in Xu Menggui’s eyes sank, but his voice was very soft. “Nothing will happen. You still have me.”
Bai Weiwei hugged him even tighter. She nodded, incomparably reliant.
As though he were her salvation.
Bai Qingshui was out of life-threatening danger, but he was in a comatose state.
The doctors said that his brain had lacked too much oxygen, leading to this situation. They didn’t know when he could wake up.
It was a hard blow to Bai Weiwei, and she fainted.
Now Xu Menggui was shocked.
He couldn’t recall any of his triumph, his plans.
His eyes only saw her falling body.
Although the check-up showed it was only excessive fatigue, it still frightened Xu Menggui for a long time.
He left people in the hospital to watch over Bai Qingshui and took Bai Weiwei home.
She quietly slept within the soft bedding.
But her brows were tightly furrowed, and there were still traces of tears on the corners of her eyes.
Xu Menggui sat on the edge of the bed and absentmindedly touched her cheek. He looked down at her and wondered what she was thinking.
Bai Weiwei slept for more than two hours before waking up.
She immediately looked around in horror. When she saw Xu Menggui was next to her, she immediately hurried into his arms.
“Menggui, I had a nightmare.”
Xu Menggui’s gloomy gaze softened. He said, “I’m here, it’s okay.”
But Bai Weiwei choked and said, “I dreamt that Dad fainted and couldn’t wake up.”
The fingers soothingly caressing her back stiffened, and Xu Menggui’s expression turned cold. Of course, he quickly put away his indifference.
He tried to comfort the poor little princess in his arms.
“It’s okay, Dad will be okay.”
His voice was low and magnetic, extremely pleasing to the ears.
Able to calm people down.
