The doctor said that Xiao Wu had fallen into such a deep sleep because he hadn’t slept for so long previously and he had finally let go of his worries. Sleep was beneficial to his recovery.
However, they couldn’t let him go on sleeping. Otherwise, he might never wake up.
He had been advancing toward a goal. Now that the goal had suddenly been achieved, he might completely relax and not want to wake up again.
Afraid that he didn’t want to wake up but also wanting him to rest more, Mu Jingzhe and the rest took turns talking to Xiao Wu in front of his bed, letting him subconsciously know that someone was waiting for him.
While Mu Jingzhe was talking to Xiao Wu, she habitually stroked his hair. As she stroked it, she suddenly found a white hair on Xiao Wu’s head.
“Why does he have a white hair… at such a young age?” Xiao Wu was only a few years old. It was too soon.
Mu Jingzhe quickly went to look for the doctor. After the doctor took a look, he pondered it for a moment. “Maybe he’s been thinking too much or he lacks some kind of element. But if a child who’s only a few years old already has white hair, we have to be careful…”
The doctor also knew Xiao Wu and was aware that Shao Qiyun was his biological mother. He shook his head. This matter was strange no matter how one looked at it.
Mu Jingzhe was even more upset when she heard that. She found the white hair striking.
Ji Buwang, Shao Qihai, and the others fell silent when they heard that. Shao Xi, who had gone out to buy pork bones, returned after getting them. When he saw Xiao Wu’s white hair, he silently went out to buy sesame seeds and walnuts.
Sesame seeds and walnuts could be used to nourish and darken the hair.
However, Xiao Wu didn’t manage to eat the cooked bone broth either. Xiao Wu slept for an entire day and didn’t wake up. After one more night, Xiao Wu slept for an entire day and night. They had to wake Xiao Wu up.
However, no matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t wake him up. Mu Jingzhe panicked and quickly went to look for the doctor. The doctor came to check on him and also tried their method, but it was useless. He said that they had to find something that Xiao Wu cared about, something that could stimulate him.
However, it was useless even after they took turns trying. In the end, Shao Xi suddenly thought of something and went forward to shout in Xiao Wu’s ear.
“Mommy vomited blood again!”
His voice was quick and anxious. Little Bei was about to pull Shao Xi back when she saw Xiao Wu, who had been motionless, suddenly open his eyes. “Mommy!”
Seeing Mu Jingzhe by the bed, Xiao Wu grabbed her hand. “Mommy, are you vomiting blood again? Why are you vomiting blood again? She promised she wouldn’t make you vomit blood…” He looked flustered as he spoke.
Mu Jingzhe looked at Xiao Wu and burst into tears. She hugged him and said, “I didn’t vomit blood. I’m fine. Xiao Wu, don’t be afraid.”
Xiao Wu gradually regained his senses in Mu Jingzhe’s arms, and his expression slowly calmed down. “I…”
He didn’t know what to say. Shao Xi looked at Xiao Wu, his hands clenched into fists and his eyes turning red. He had suddenly thought of it and tried it without giving it much thought. He hadn’t expected it to really work.
It was obvious how much this sentence had stimulated Xiao Wu.
Now that Xiao Wu had woken up, he avoided the danger of falling into a coma. However, his body still needed to recuperate. His nerves were too tense, and he needed to adjust.
Mu Jingzhe and the others remembered what the doctor had said, so not long after Xiao Wu woke up, a steaming pot of bone broth greeted him.
“I went to buy the bones this morning and stewed them myself. Drink it quickly. You didn’t get to drink it yesterday.”
After a big bowl of bone broth, Shao Xi gave Xiao Wu a big bone. “Hurry up and suck the bone marrow.”
Mu Jingzhe had heard that cylindrical bones could allow one to grow taller, especially if one ate the bone marrow. In the past, she had also nourished them using this. She had asked each of the kids to suck the bone marrow out before. Shao Xi felt that it was quite effective, so he decided to feed Xiao Wu at least one cylindrical bone a day from now on.
He didn’t believe that it would be useless.
Xiao Wu was very stunned, but he couldn’t bear to turn down Shao Xi’s kind intentions. He could only suck hard on the big bone.
Shao Xi was only satisfied when he obediently sucked it. After confirming with the doctor that he could eat sesame and walnuts, he peeled a walnut for Xiao Wu.
In the afternoon, Shao Xi went to buy cylindrical bones again. Xiao Wu was very sensitive and had already sensed that their attitude was abnormal. He quickly asked if he had a calcium deficiency or something.
Shao Nan glanced at Mu Jingzhe and told Xiao Wu the truth without having to discuss it with her.
They had long said that they wouldn’t hide things from each other anymore. Besides, Xiao Wu had to know about this so that he would cooperate.
Xiao Wu hadn’t expected this to happen either. He was also afraid, but upon seeing the seriousness on their faces, he comforted them. “Don’t worry too much. At most, I’ll just be your younger brother for the rest of our lives.”
He would work hard to grow up so that his mother wouldn’t worry about him for a lifetime. But even if he didn’t manage to grow taller, he wouldn’t regret it. Mu Jingzhe’s safety was worth it!
However, Mu Jingzhe and the others didn’t feel the same way. They only wanted Xiao Wu to return to normal. Now, Shao Xi was determined to help Xiao Wu by using food, and Shao Nan would look for the doctors whenever he had the time, wanting to solve every problem through scientific treatment.
Xiao Wu cooperated with them, and nothing else happened after that. However, Shao Qiyun was not well. She was still in a critical condition.
Xiao Wu was very cold when he mentioned Shao Qiyun. He believed that she deserved to die, but Mommy had long told them that even if someone’s crimes were unforgivable, they shouldn’t replace the law and condemn them for the crimes themselves. Otherwise, if they got used to it, their mentality would change and they would think that they could decide the fate of others at will and they’d feel superior to others.
This wouldn’t do for long. Xiao Wu knew very well what he had done, so he was already prepared to turn himself in. It might not have occurred to the others that his music could kill, but he knew it very well himself, so he had to take responsibility.
Perhaps he wouldn’t have to go to jail because of his age, but he should go to juvie to be reformed. However, he couldn’t bring himself to say this to Mu Jingzhe for the time being.
He had left his mommy for too long. So long that he felt like he had died once before returning. Seeing his mommy taking care of him every day and feeding him while his siblings, maternal grandparents, and uncles around him kept asking about his well-being, he felt so blissful that it felt like he was dreaming.
Xiao Wu wanted this dream to last longer.
He stayed in the hospital for five days. The day he was discharged, Xiao Wu obtusely thought that he would turn himself in after Shao Qiyun died and he would stay by his mother and siblings’ side a little longer for now.
However, Shao Qiyun didn’t die in the end. After a few days of emergency treatment, Shao Qiyun was brought back from the brink of death.
Everyone heaved a sigh of relief. Shao Dong and the others felt that it wouldn’t be enough even if Shao Qiyun died a thousand times. It wouldn’t be sufficient to kill her a few times. However, they had to let the doctor save her for no other reason than for Xiao Wu.
As long as she was still alive, the burden in Xiao Wu’s heart might not be so heavy. Even though he felt that he had already killed someone, this was better than her really dying and forming a knot in his heart.
After Shao Qiyun was rescued, she was hospitalized for two days. Then, she recovered and could finally be discharged.
However, it was unknown if it was because she had suffered a mental breakdown or because of the aftereffects of the pesticide. When Shao Qiyun woke up again, her mental state was already abnormal. She was sometimes sober and sometimes muddle-headed. To put it simply, she had gone crazy..
