There were all sorts of strange things in the novel world, and the existence of the Mother-Child Gu seemed normal.
Upon thinking of the legendary Gu in her body, Mu Jingzhe felt waves of discomfort. She really wanted to vomit, but when she saw Xiao Wu’s expression, she forcefully suppressed the urge to do so.
Xiao Wu didn’t look at Mu Jingzhe. Instead, he looked in the direction of the emergency room. He didn’t know how Shao Qiyun was, but he knew that he was no longer clean after killing someone.
Even though he had done it to save someone, it was a fact that he had killed a person. He had killed with his favorite thing, music, which was something that he had originally planned on liking for the rest of his life.
Xiao Wu looked at the frowning expressions of his siblings and took a deep breath. “This is what happened. If it were you guys, you might have handled it better, but I couldn’t think of a better solution. Whether you can understand me or not, this is the only way.”
After saying that, he lifted the blanket. “I’m going to the bathroom.”
“I’ll take him there.” Ji Buwang perked up. Ignoring Xiao Wu’s resistance, he picked him up and walked out. As he walked, he frowned. Why did he feel lighter than before?
When Xiao Wu and Ji Buwang left the ward, Mu Jingzhe followed them worriedly. Shao Qihai said that he was going to check on Shao Qiyun and left as well.
Although Shao Qiyun, his younger sister, deserved to die, he couldn’t let her die now.
The remaining four kids looked at each other’s expressions. “Why is nobody talking?”
“I don’t like this.” Little Bei wrinkled her nose. “We’ve scolded and resented each other before…”
“Then how can you not forgive him?” Shao Dong asked in return.
Little Bei frowned. It was impossible for her not to forgive him. Shao Qiyun didn’t even have to lift a finger to claim their mother’s life. If their mother’s life was being threatened, who could guarantee that they would have acted better than him?
Shao Nan looked at her expression. “Stop thinking about it. Previously, we said that even if there was more to the story than met the eye, we’d have to teach Xiao Wu a lesson. If that doesn’t work, we’ll use those other methods…”
Before he could finish speaking, they heard Mu Jingzhe’s panicked voice calling for the doctor outside. Shao Dong and the others looked at each other and quickly rushed out.
Xiao Wu had fainted at the door right after coming out of the bathroom.
“What’s going on? Didn’t they say that the pesticide hadn’t affected him much?”
The doctor soon arrived. “The pesticide didn’t cause the child too much harm, but his body has been exhausted for a long time. The specific test results will only be out tomorrow, but based on experience, it might be a little troublesome.”
“What do you mean?”
“You’ll know tomorrow.”
After an entire night of resuscitation, Shao Qiyun didn’t die. She was barely resuscitated, but her condition wasn’t very good. As for what would happen in the future, they had to continue observing to find out.
On the surface, Shao Qiyun’s condition looked more dangerous, but in reality, Xiao Wu’s situation wasn’t optimistic either.
After a few consultations with experts, the conclusion was: “His body collapsed a long time ago. He’s like an arrow at the end of its flight, just barely holding on. He suffers from malnutrition, anemia, and so on.”
This was also the first time the doctor had encountered such a case. “Furthermore, for such a situation to arise, physical illness is not enough. He must also be mentally and physically exhausted. He must have not slept well for a long time.
“Such a condition usually only affects adults. This is the first time it has happened to such a young child. What exactly happened to him?”
Mu Jingzhe didn’t dare look at Xiao Wu anymore. “Can it still be cured? It can still be cured, right?”
“That will depend on your cooperation. If you cooperate and take good care of him, he might be able to recover, but he can’t go on like this in the future. He’s human and he’s still growing. He can’t be so hard on his body. Otherwise, this will leave behind a lifetime of sequelae. It’s possible that he won’t grow taller or bigger from now on.”
Mu Jingzhe was shocked. “He won’t grow taller or bigger? It’s that serious?”
“It is very serious. He’s in a terrible state now. That’s why I told you to be careful.”
“It’s been a while since he last grew taller… He can still grow taller if he’s well taken care of, right?”
She had always hoped that the five kids would grow up healthily. Although people said that it would be great if time slowed down and they didn’t grow up, they didn’t mean it in this sense.
What would looking like seven or eight years old forever be like? One would probably go crazy.
The doctor also knew the severity of the matter. “Pay more attention. Recovery should be possible. You guys should observe him more. We’ll do our best too.”
“Alright, thank you, doctor. Thank you, doctor.” After thanking the doctor, Mu Jingzhe looked at Xiao Wu, feeling terrible.
Xiao Wu hadn’t said how long he had been going through this, but the doctor’s words and Xiao Wu’s condition indirectly explained everything.
No wonder he hadn’t grown taller and had gotten so thin. How could he grow taller and gain weight when his body was so tormented?
“I felt that he was ridiculously thin last night…” Shao Nan, who had come to eavesdrop, muttered. Only then did he realize why Xiao Wu’s cries had made them all feel so uncomfortable.
Shao Xi, who had come to eavesdrop too, was even more speechless. He had resented Xiao Wu the most previously and felt that he was really ungrateful. Back then, because of Xiao Wu, Shao Xi had cried and made a fuss. He had felt extremely vexed and hurt, but he hadn’t expected that, compared to Xiao Wu’s condition, this would be nothing.
“He’ll grow up. Every child grows up. At most, I’ll stew bone broth for him every day. I’ll go buy some now.”
Shao Xi ran out to buy the broth because he felt so awful.
It was such a big deal, but in the end, their youngest brother, Xiao Wu, had to bear this responsibility. No wonder he had changed so much. He had been forced to do this.
Shao Dong, who had accompanied them, also felt his heart ache when he heard that. However, other than worrying about Xiao Wu, he was also worried that Mu Jingzhe would feel terrible. After all, Mu Jingzhe had hit Xiao Wu before.
“Mom, let’s go out. The doctor will treat him well. Xiao Wu will definitely grow bigger and taller.”
“That’s right, Mommy. Xiao Wu will definitely grow taller. If he doesn’t grow taller this time, I’ll formulate a substance to make him grow taller in the future,” Shao Nan also told Mu Jingzhe.
“Mm.” Mu Jingzhe nodded and didn’t speak for a long time. When she returned to the ward, she couldn’t help but stroke Xiao Wu. When she saw that he was thinner than she had imagined, she felt terrible. She found an excuse and came out again. She couldn’t help but bump her head on the side.
“I told you before, this is what I hate the most… The fact that he had his reasons. He has been sacrificing himself silently… What have I done to deserve him?”
“Don’t blame yourself. Xiao Wu did that because he thinks that you’re worth it.” Ji Buwang couldn’t stop her in time and helplessly advised her. “If we find a better doctor, he’ll definitely be able to treat Xiao Wu and make him grow taller.”
Xiao Wu was unconscious. When Li Zhaodi and Mu Teng received the news, they also rushed over. They hadn’t expected the truth to be so shocking, but because they had heard too much about ghosts and gods, it was easy for them to accept the Gu explanation.
“What the heck is this? All this is Shao Qiyun’s fault. Why didn’t she die?”
Everyone wished that she had died, but their priority was still Xiao Wu. Since Xiao Wu had fainted, he hadn’t woken up..
