Childish Flower - Chapter 28
Every morning before he goes to work, Gao Tianchen made a habit of visiting Mu Jin’s room before going out.
Just like an ordinary family, the husband wakes up early to go to work and gives his sleeping lover a soft kiss before he leaves.
Today he pushed open the door of the ward as usual. However, he noticed that Mu Jin’s hands, which were originally placed on either side of her body, seemed to have shifted a little. One hand was even slightly clenched, and his fingers were lightly curled.
He was a little surprised and froze in place for a few seconds. He suddenly reacted only to feel his heart about to leap out of his chest. He ran to Mu Jin’s bed in a panic and called out slightly urgently to the person in the bed.
“Xiao Jin! Are you awake?”
All Mu Jin could feel was that he was wandering around in a dense fog, surrounded by nothing. There was no sound, no light, and full of the fear of the unknown.
He could not remember what he was desperate and exhausted for. His mind was muddled. His whole body was flooded with pain like being ripped apart, and his heart was exhausted.
Not wanting to struggle with reality any longer, Mu Jin considered giving up his grip. However, a familiar voice came from afar, too distant to be real.
Someone was calling him urgently as if he was worried.
The light was so intense that his eyes stung and burned, having been used to darkness for so long.
Consciousness was still a little hazy, and his vision was not very clear. Mu Jin stared at the ceiling for a while before his eyes slowly focused, but when he saw the person next to him, his body froze.
“Am I…not in the hospital?” He quivered his cracked lips for a few moments before a few tones came out of his dry throat. The words were barely put together, his voice hoarse as gravel.
Gao Tianchen leaned down and gathered the fine strands of Mu Jin’s hair that were scattered around his forehead, his voice soft, “It’s good that you’re awake. I’ve brought you back from the hospital. You’re in our home now.”
Mu Jin stared at Gao Tianchen with tenderness, his not very sober eyes tinged with a hint of fear and anxiety. He seemed to be a bit puzzled and scared by his attitude.
“Tianchen…ahem…have you signed the things I left for you?”
He had just woken up, his breath was still light, and his mind was not quite clear. So many things from before were like a jumbled mess clogging his chaotic brain. No trace of them could be found, but he firmly remembered only one.
He had left a divorce agreement to Gao Tianchen. According to his previous agreement with his father, after the birth of the child, they would be strangers from now on and would have no more relationship.
Gao Tianchen could never have imagined that the first thing Mu Jin said when he woke up was that he wanted to divorce him, and for a moment he was frozen in place by his words.
Yes, he had promised Master Mu that after he gave birth to an Alpha child, their absurd and fruitless marriage would be over.
There was something in his heart that he could not let go of and could not forget. So he cruelly locked Mu Jin out of the door. No matter what sacrifices and efforts the other party made, it would eventually go down the drain without a response from him.
It is not that he did not want to let go, but he inflicted pain and suffering on the other side again and again. He never gave Mu Jin even a little bit of trust and trampled on his unrequited love wantonly.
This relationship, which started ridiculously odd, had a difficult process. Even the ending, too, was tragic.
Not wanting to let him think nonsense again, Gao Tianchen untraceably averted his eyes to escape Mu Jin’s clear and true gaze on him(GT).
“Don’t think too much. Get some rest. I’m going to the office first.”
There was a sound of the door closing softly in his ears. As Mu Jin closed his heavy eyes, his brain throbbed with a dull pain. He was about to be annihilated by exhaustion and powerlessness.
Seeing the way Gao Tianchen’s thoughts wandered into silence just now, Mu Jin knew that he should not have signed.
The reason he could only guess was that perhaps he was afraid of breaking his heart. After all, his Alpha had never been a gentle person.
It was only after Mu Jin had been conscious and had been lying in bed for the most part of a month that his body slowly improved. Although his face was not as rosy as a normal person’s, it was not as miserable as white paper like before.
His body functions have recovered well and he is basically conscious. His pheromone indicators have gradually increased from a low to a normal level.
Gao Tianchen tried his best to put off some unnecessary company engagements and meetings. He spent a lot of time at home taking care of Mu Jin, who was getting better.
On a sunny afternoon, the sky was clear and blue, not a single cloud was seen. The breeze was gentle and warm, and the warm sunlight poured over the land like water. That made the turquoise grass glisten with a bright red hue.
The narrow wheels gently grind over the flat stone path. Mu Jin has slept for so long that his bangs have grown a little longer, slightly covering his eyes. A breeze gently blows by, stirring up the fine light brown hair.
The young Gao Lin sat quietly on his father’s knee. His little fleshy face was smooth. His big bright eyes were glistening with water, and his short arms were as white as lotus roots. His little hand was gently clutching Mu Jin’s pinky.
After all, in the two months since his birth, there was no trace of his(MJ) existence as his(GL) biological father. The first time Mu Jin held him, he(MJ) was extremely apprehensive. He(MJ) was afraid that he(GL) would be frightened by his(MJ) unfamiliar self. In addition, he(MJ) was afraid that he(MJ) would hurt him by holding him unfamiliarly.
Unexpectedly, this tiny little ball of dough actually took the initiative to grasp Mu Jin’s neck and gave him a wet kiss on the cheek. Surprised, Mu Jin’s eyes turned red and almost fell into tears. His emotions overflowed and he couldn’t control himself as he took his little face and kissed it several times, carefully cradling him in his arms as if he were a precious treasure.
Gao Lin’s big dark eyes stared at the person in front of him. Although this person was new to him, the pheromones emanating from his body were so gentle and familiar that he could not help but want to be close to him as he was still young and unaware of the world.
Gao Tianchen saw that it was a nice day, so he pushed Mu Jin out to get some air. He was not in good spirits and could not walk for long, so Gao Tianchen simply carried him into the wheelchair. He also put the little dumpling, who had been clinging to him all along, next to him.
When they were alone, they rarely spoke. In the past, Gao Tianchen used to listen to Mu Jin and keep silent, but now it was basically Gao Tianchen who said something to lighten the mood. In return, Mu Jin only shook his head slightly or nodded his head.
“Tianchen, you say,” Mu Jin gently tickled Gao Lin’s tender face while lightly opening his lips, his voice a little hoarse, “What kind of relationship do we have now?”
Gao Tianchen heard him ask the question, his gaze fell on Mu Jin. The look in his eyes was complicated, and he lowered his eyes as if to hide it, not answering.
This question, which he had been avoiding since Mu Jin woke up, could no longer be avoided when faced with such a blunt question from the other party.
