Chapter 491: Past in Country T (24)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

After nightfall, Li You slept very restlessly.


Thunder suddenly rumbled in the sky. Thunder rumbled one after another, lightning tore through the dark sky, and heavy rain poured down.

Li You lay on the bed, tossing and turning. She could not sleep well. She had one nightmare after another, and she did not know what she had dreamed. At this moment, she was sweating profusely, and the hair on her forehead was all wet.

Until waves of pain in her lower abdomen woke her up.


“Little You, Little You.’

“Little You, what’s wrong?”

Madam Di Xin came in with her clothes draped over her shoulders. She turned on the light and saw Li You lying on the bed with sweat all over her face. Her entire body was trembling, and her face was as pale as a sheet.

“Little You, are you feeling unwell?” Madam Di Xin walked over quickly and asked.

Li You curled up and said weakly, “My stomach, my stomach hurts…”

Hearing that her stomach hurt, Madam Di Xin’s expression changed drastically. She quickly helped Li You up. “Quick, I’ll take you to the hospital.”

Li You supported herself with one hand on the bed and grabbed Madam Di

Xin!s hand with the other. With the help of Madam Di Xin, she slowly sat up. Madam Di Xin helped her lift the blanket. Suddenly, she was shocked and let go.

Li You’s forehead was covered in sweat. Seeing Madam Di Xin suddenly let go and her terrified expression, she seemed to have realized something terrifying.

She slowly looked down.

At this moment, the bed under her was soaked in bright red blood. Her pants were also soaked in blood. There was an eye-catching bright red color in front of her eyes until there were more and more…

Screams of despair cut through the night.

Li You woke up from a nightmare filled with blood. She opened her terrified eyes, her lips slightly parted, and she panted violently. The scenes in the nightmare were so real. The baby in her stomach turned into a pool of bright red blood. The blood soaked through her clothes and bedsheets. She was helpless and afraid… Clatter.

The lights came on.

The warm light was not blinding, but Li You still subconsciously raised her hand to cover her eyes. After a few seconds, she felt someone reach out to her. She waved her hand and pushed the hand away.

Then, she tried to sit up quickly.

Seeing that she was overreacting, Pei Jingzhou knew that she was affected by the nightmare just now, and could not tell if it was reality or a nightmare. He clasped her wrist and pulled her close to hug her gently. “Don’t be afraid. It’s me.”

When Li You heard Pei Jingzhou’s voice, she was stunned for a moment. However, at this moment, she was still in a daze and could not tell if it was reality or a dream. She slowly reached out her hand to Pei Jingzhou, trying to touch his cheek to feel reality.

Before she could touch it, she suddenly remembered something important and pushed Pei Jingzhou away.

Pei Jingzhou did not expect her to suddenly push him away with all her might. He understood that she had been under a lot of mental pressure recently, so he did not ask much. However, she was clearly in a bad state.

Li You lifted the blanket on her body and felt around the bed, as if she wanted to confirm something.

Pei Jingzhou did not stop her. He only asked, “What are you looking for?”

Li You said in a daze, “Blood, blood, a lot of blood, here, and here, a lot of blood…” As she spoke, she tossed and turned, trying to find the same scene as in her dream. But no matter how she searched, there was not a trace of blood on the sheets or her body.

Pei Jingzhou silently pulled her into his arms. Li You did not struggle anymore. She leaned into Pei Jingzhou’s arms and murmured, “There’s so much blood. So much, so much. Here, it’s all…

“Pei Jingzhou, there’s a lot of blood.” “So much blood…

She took a long time to quiet down.

During this period, Pei Jingzhou only hugged her quietly. Until she stopped and woke up. She realized that she was not in a nightmare, and the person holding her was Pei Jingzhou. She slowly raised her tired eyes and looked at the gently swaying curtains not far behind Pei Jingzhou. Only when she felt tired did she call his name. “…Pei Jingzhou.”

Pei Jingzhou replied, “I’m here.” Li You said, ‘1 1 had a nightmare,”

“I know,” he said.

Pei Jingzhou only said that he knew, but he did not ask her what she had dreamed of. Once she said that terrifying nightmare again, she would only be even sadder. His arm around her loosened slightly and he pulled her out of his arms. He took a tissue from the side and gently wiped the thin sweat on her forehead and her hair that was wet with sweat.

Li You sniffed and asked in a muffled voice, “When did you get here?”

Pei Jingzhou’s movements were gentle. “l arrived at eleven. When I came over, you were already asleep.”

Li You’s nose was red. She looked up at him. “Why didn’t you wake me up?”

Pei Jingzhou took two pieces of paper and barely wiped the sweat off her forehead. He placed the tissue aside and pulled up the blanket to gently vvrap it around her. “I’m afraid I’ll wake you up. It won’t be so easy to sleep again.”

The smile on Li You’s lips was even uglier than crying. She looked up from Pei

Jingzhou’s arms. “I’m on my period. You can’t bully me.”

Pei Jingzhou lowered his eyes. “What are you thinking?”

Li You:

It seemed like… she was thinking too much.

Pei Jingzhou was actually worried about the quality of her sleep. She was not in a good mood now. It was difficult for her to fall asleep again when she finally woke up. For example, now that she had woken up from a nightmare, it would probably be a long time before she could fall asleep.

She obediently didn’t move again.

Pei Jingzhou gently wrapped her in the blanket in this position and pulled her into his arms. Such an embrace was extremely safe for Li You. It was as if she was being held in Pei Jingzhou’s palm. No matter how she rolled, she would not roll out of his palm.

Sleepiness came faster than she’d expected. She didn’t know when she’d fallen asleep. When she woke up, Pei Jingzhou was no longer beside her. She sat up and remembered her nightmare last night. She immediately lifted the blanket.

Seeing the clean bed and clothes, she felt much more at ease. She slowly raised her hand to cover her abdomen and felt this little life take root in her stomach. It was really a wonderful feeling.

If Pei Jingzhou knew that she was pregnant, he would be very happy, right? She got out of bed and went to the bathroom.

She had changed into a new sanitary pad before sleeping last night. It was still considered clean. She was right to listen to the doctor. Lying down and resting was the right thing to do. At least for the time being, she had to lie down and rest.

She came out of the bathroom and composed herself to go out.

Pei Jingzhou was making breakfast in the kitchen. She leaned against the kitchen door without saying anything until Pei Jingzhou noticed her. “You’re up.”

Li You nodded and asked, “Last night, Madam Di Xin was with me. I didn’t see her this morning. Did she return to Chunwu?” Pei Jingzhou replied, “Yes, she left this morning.”

Li You nodded.

Pei Jingzhou lifted the lid of the pot and scooped a bowl of ginger brown sugar water for Li You..
