His dark eyes slowly moved, and his empty eyes gradually regained focus. He looked at Xu Weilai and saw her extremely worried eyes. She was clearly very sad, but she still tried to maintain a calm and composed front.
He held Xu Weilai’s hand and said hoarsely, “Let’s go. ”
Grandfather Gu was transferred to the VIP ward upstairs. Gu Yu and Xu Weilai took the elevator upstairs. It was late at night, and the entire floor was very quiet. Only the sound of their slightly heavy footsteps could be heard.
Because grandfather Gu was still under observation, they couldn’t enter the ward to see him for the time being. They only stayed outside the ward and looked in through the large square glass window.
The old man laid on the hospital bed with his body covered with all kinds of instruments. It was a shocking sight to behold.
Trying to see more clearly, Xu Weilai was almost leaning against the glass window with her eyes wide. Her eyes couldn’t help but redden, and the sensation of soreness surged up in her throat.
Although grandfather Gu was old, he had always been in good health. His voice was like a loud bell, and his steps were steady. He was always smiling. He couldn’t be in such a lifeless comatose state.
Gu Yu stood a step behind her. There was no expression on his handsome face. He habitually hid all his sadness and sorrow. However, his hands that were hanging by his sides were tightly clenched, as if he was venting all his emotions there.
Tears welled up in Gu Yu’s eyes. He slowly raised his hand and gently stroked her head with his large palm. He replied in a low voice, “Yes.”
Xu Weilai sniffled and said, “Gu Yu, if you’re sad, I can go away for a while.”
She could feel that he had been suppressing his emotions all this time, and her heart ached for him. Grandpa Gu was the only family he had left. She knew how important Grandpa Gu was to him, but forcefully suppressing his emotions like this was very harmful to his health, so he might as well cry out loud.
“There’s no need.” Gu Yu’s voice was even more hoarse, and there was even a slight tremor in his voice. “Xu Weilai, you cry for me with my share.”
Upon hearing this, Xu Weilai’s tears fell even more intensely.
Back then, when Gu Yu watched his parents pass away, was it also like this? Did he keep suppressing himself despite his extreme sorrow?
She still wanted to say something, but her throat was choked and she couldn’t say anything. In the end, she could only nod her head vigorously.
This time, at least she was by his side. Moreover, now that medicine was so advanced, Grandpa Gu might not always be like this.
They didn’t leave and simply sat on the chair outside the ward.
Xu Weilai was tired from crying. Even though she was trying her best to stay awake, her eyelids kept drooping. Upon seeing this, Gu Yu gently pressed his palm against her face and pressed her head onto his shoulder. He said in a low voice, “Sleep for a while. I’ll watch.”
Xu Future’s eyelids didn’t seem to open. In the end, they completely fell down.
The sky outside had unknowingly started to light up, and the sound of hurried footsteps suddenly came from the corridor. Gu Yu looked up and saw Doctor Li striding over, his brows tightly knitted together.
