Since young, she had a habit of pulling the blankets above her head to hide from scary things. This time was not an exception as her left hand dragged the blanket and covered both of them. Not only was the movie now playing in the background with no audience watching it, the two were in their own little space on top of each other.
At the same time, Chen Mu raced out of the lab and rushed to see Susu when he heard from Ariana that she was awake. Lin Que decided to stay in the lab to wait for the drug results. Normally, the results don't take that long, but this drug was more complicated than they thought. The drug consists of many substances that shouldn't be combined together, and many of these mixtures would cause serious threats to a patient's life.
"Well, at least she's doing well. I wonder when we can tell her everything. Would it be too soon to tell her all this complicated mess? If only I knew years ago, then this wouldn't have happened. That's exactly why I'm a lonely soul with a runaway wife for half my life, huh?" He sighed and texted back a smirk emoji followed by a sleeping panda on a pillow gif.
When Lily and Susu were in line for food, others started conversations with them and they quickly became friends. Meanwhile, Karen was biting her chapped lips and devouring the peeling dead skin with lipstick tint on it because nobody voluntarily spoke to her. Nobody pitied her for getting dragged into the previous conversation. Nobody praised her beauty and all her efforts that she had spent on dressing up. She wasn't able to pass out a single business card tonight because her spotlight was taken by Lily and Susu.
"Really? So wifey is all happy now?" His hands reached up to hold hers against his cheeks and a smile formed on both their faces.
"Shh..everyone has their own stories. There are many people with the weirdest lives that we don't know of. If being normal means to get a plain job and live the rest of my life at ease, then I'd rather choose to go a different way. If being normal means that I can't be with you and take care of you then I'll choose to be the weird one. Nothing in life is a guarantee."
In the next minute, she lifted her head and gave the most cheerful and blooming smile that he had ever seen. Once again, she had captured his heart and made him fall even deeper in love with her. She wrapped her arms around his neck and tiptoed, "Still angry? Hmm?" She blinked adorably just an inch away from his face.
While hugging Susu, Lily felt her icily temperature hands, "why are your hands so cold? Are you feeling cold?" Immediately, she took the blanket that fell off the bed and covered her up. She took Susu's hands in her own and started rubbing it to warm them up. That was when she noticed that she was covering her right shoulder; the place that she had peeked at earlier.
The guard brought over a new mirror that has an enlarge effect. Karen tried to close her eyes and look away, but the guard forced her to face the mirror.
He praised at her long-sleeved off shoulder V neck white dress that reached midway of her thighs with trimmed layers with embroidered flowers. Pale pink laced flowers freshened up the edges of her dress and around her slim waist line. The tip of her hair was slightly curled with a small updo; exactly the way she loved it.
Feeling her hardened nips, his fingertips teased it in circles and pinched it. His kisses left trails of marks behind and stopped when he reached her collarbones. Sitting up, he watched her bite down on her lips, stare at him with desire in her eyes, and legs spread slowly for him to position himself between them.
Chen Mu looked at the reports that he left scattered on the floor and let out a scoff. "I'll get my shit together. I'll definitely continue making medicine for her cancer. If one cup of herb tea isn't enough to get rid of a stupid cold, then I'll make a pot of herb soup for her. If that doesn't work then, I will figure ways out. I won't give up hope."
Zi Yan's voice choked a little when she opened her mouth to interrupt their loving moment. "Is there anything we could do while you two are gone? Like a tracking device or something?"
Her left hand pointed to her throat and then the water filled pitcher. "You want water?" Chen Mu grabbed a clean cup and rinsed it before pouring her a warm cup of water. Chen Nan adjusted her bed to make it more comfortable for her to drink water without choking.
"Mm...My future-hubby-to-be is quite impatient. See? That trick works out quite well, doesn't it?" She proudly said as she enjoyed his hands roaming around her body skillfully to her sensitive spots. Soon, the lab was filled with moans, and it didn't stop until a few hours later. It was a great thing that the hospital made the labs soundproof. Those soundproof walls protected many virgin ears.
"Darling!" Susu smiled energetically with her arms spread as she dashed towards his direction and wrapped her arms around him. He hugged her soft, warm body and kissed her forehead, "Aiggooo, out family's goddess sure is feeling much better today. You even dressed up so beautifully~"
"Woahh~ Sharp weapons are not for kids to play with. Especially the spikes that you have modified on. It might cut yourself instead. Did you already forget who taught you this trick? Haha" She could feel every strand of her hair raise in alert mode as she backed away from him. It was then that she realized the blades and spikes on her brass knuckles have been removed.
When Chen Mu got back to his condo, he minimized every sound he made just in case she was already asleep. Seeing the faint glow coming from the living room, he assumed that Susu had forgotten to switch off the table lamp before going to sleep. He smiled and lightly stepped to the living room to turn it off.
Seeing her eyes shut tight, he smirked as he buckled the seat belt properly and made sure it wasn't too tight on her. When she opened her eyes again, he leaned over and took possession of her mouth with his. Slowly, his lips moved over hers and devoured her lipstick as their lips met over and over again.
Instead of wiping off the makeup, the girls ended up bringing out more makeup and gave the guys a total makeover. The more they drew on their face, the funnier they looked. When the guys took a look at each other, they rolled around the floor and joined the girls in laughing.
Since Kitty had worked at the hospital for quite some time now, she knew perfectly well where tools were located. Purposely, she took needles, syringes, vaccines and anything related to other patients as she passed by the hallway to attack Ariana who was catching up to her.
He shook her hands off, "I did want all of those things, but the one whom I want to have all those things with is no longer you. You didn't lose to Susu because I am not an object. I'm not a ball that you can hold when you want to play with me and then toss away when you're finished. The ball may roll off and never come back. You and your parents can continue living in that apartment until you find a job to support them. This is all I could do for you, sorry."
"Is that a challenge?" he loosened the hug and looked her in the eye with flirting signals all over. Though it was cold out, she could feel the heat rising to her cheeks. She turned around and said, "Let's go~ I'm getting cold. Geez, you and your hidden meanings!"
