Chapter 1637: I Know He’s Still Alive (18)
"Su Yu, can you please take me to find him?" Huo Mian begged.
Su Yu helped Huo Mian get up from the ground and helped her back onto the bed.
"It's late now. Why don't you get some rest, and I will take you tomorrow?"
"Do you know where I want to go?"
"Will you take me there?"
Upon hearing Su Yu's answer, Huo Mian let out a slight smile.
"Can you rest for now then?"
Su Yu help her lie down and adjusted the blanket to ensure that she will be warm throughout the night.
"Are you hungry?" he asked.
Huo Mian shook her head.
"Do you want some water?"
Huo Mian shook her head again.
"Hm＃ How about some fruits?"
"Okay, close your eyes then. Don't think about anything else, okay?"
"What about you?" Huo Mian looked at Su Yu and asked.
"I'm＃ I'm fine. I will stay here for a bit and leave after you fall asleep."
Su Yu sat down on the chair beside the bed and quietly guarded Huo Mian. After half an hour, Huo Mian entered dreamland once more.
Su Yu shifted his gaze and stared at her quietly. Under the soft lighting, her delicate features looked even more beautiful and breathtaking.
Su Yu's heart skipped a beat. Unable to control himself, he lifted his hand, wanting to stroke her cheek. However, halfway through, he pulled back his arm...
"Huo Mian, you must stay well," Su Yu whispered.
Just like this, he sat in Huo Mian's room for four hours, till dawn.
Su Yu walked out at the crack of dawn.
"Young Master Su＃ You stayed up the whole night?" the nurse asked, a bit surprised.
"How's her appetite?"
"She didn't have dinner last night, nor anything since."
"I will go get some rice and make congee then." Su Yu then walked out of the hospital, leaving the stunned nurse behind.
Every medical staff in the Military Hospital knew Su Yu. They knew that not only was he Commander Su's grandson, he was also the president of an entertainment company. He was the perfect man - handsome and extremely wealthy.
If this was ancient China, he would be considered as the Imperial Prince within the Su Empire. But, who knew a man like this, who was known to have a terrible temper, would take care of a woman with such patience? Not only that, he was willing to go out and buy rice himself to cook congee for her. At that moment, the nurse felt extremely envious of Huo Mian, who was still lying inside her room.
She wondered what kind of charisma Huo Mian could possibly have that would take on such control of Su Yu.
- Six in the morning -
By the time Huo Mian woke up, Su Yu had finished boiling congee.
"You're awake? Come eat."
"You're still here?" Huo Mian looked up, slightly surprised.
"Oh, I'm getting old, so I don't sleep much anymore. I didn't have anything to do, so I went to the grocery store and bought some rice when the sun came up. I don't know what flavor you prefer, but my cooking skills should be okay. Back when I was in the army, I would cook congee for myself when we were training in the wilderness. Try it, should be edible." Su Yu filled a bowl up with congee and passed it to Huo Mian.
"Su Yu＃" Huo Mian's voice choked up slightly.
"You're such a mom." Huo Mian looked at Su Yu as she teared up, and then before he could reply, she accepted the bowl of congee from him and began eating without a word.
It wasn't because Huo Mian was cold-hearted. She understood the kindness he had shown her, but she could not reciprocate, and it was slowly becoming a heavy burden in her heart.
"Eat up! Once you're done, I want to take you somewhere."
"Where?" Huo Mian looked up from her bowl, slightly surprised.
"Didn't you say you wanted to go and find Qin Chu?"
