After Jiang Yu had the phone call with Qiu Li last night, she tossed and turned in bed and couldn’t fall asleep. Her sixth sense told her that something seemed amiss.
Early the next morning, she got up earlier than Jiang Manyi and went straight to Qiu Li’s house in Shuixitai.
She knocked on the door for a while, but no one answered.
Jiang Yu didn’t believe that he went out early in the early morning of the beginning of the year, so he must have been sleeping late.
She took out the spare key from the milk carton at the door, opened the lock and walked in.
When she entered, she saw Qiu Li’s pair of rough old sneakers, lying messily on the floor mat.
Why hadn’t he thrown it away yet?
Jiang Yu bent down, picked up the shoes, and put them back in the shoe cabinet.
“Boyfriend, are you at home?”
Jiang Yu walked into the bedroom wearing his large slippers, pushed open the door, and saw Qiu Li sleeping with his clothes in the dim room covered by warm yellow curtains. He was still holding the new pair of shoes she gave him.
As for what.
Jiang Yu smiled and walked in, only to find that the new pair of shoes seemed to have burn marks, and even the shoelaces were rolled black.
Immediately afterwards, she found that Qiu Li’s left hand also had traces of burns, there were thumb-sized blisters on the back of his hand, the surrounding skin was also red, and the sleeves were scorched black.
Jiang Yu was taken aback and hurriedly woke him up.
“What’s wrong with your hand!”
Qiu Li woke up in a daze, opened his eyes, and saw the girl looking at him anxiously.
He thought he was dreaming, and subconsciously touched her face with his fingertips.
When he touched her cold and delicate skin, and the touch of his fingertips was transmitted to the nerve endings of his brain, Qiu Li suddenly woke up.
He was not dreaming.
Like a frightened bird, he immediately sat up, and then covered his lower body with a sheet, only to find that he was sleeping with clothes on, and there was nothing to cover.
“Why are you here?” He rubbed his eyes carelessly.
Jiang Yu didn’t answer his question, instead she knelt beside the bed and started to pull the sleeves of his clothes to check the rest of his body.
Qiu Li smiled at the worried look of the girl, and stretched out his hand to hold her slender waist: “On the first day of the new year, why are you so active?”
Jiang Yu immediately loosened his collar, got out of bed, and grabbed and checked his hands carefully: “Why are you injured so badly, who did this to you?”
“Setting off firecrackers, it exploded in my hands.” He held the sneakers in front of her and shook them: “I’m sorry, the shoes were given by you. I blew them up.”
“Why are you so stupid!” Jiang Yu said angrily, “What firecrackers were you setting of, that you blow up your own hands, wouldn’t you look at other people’s firecrackers!”
“Stupid, stupid, stupid!”
Qiu Li liked to see her angry, so he felt relieved, and pinched her angry face with his right hand: “I’m stupid…”
He knew he was like a moth to the flame, but he still delayed it, it was impossible for him to extricate himself.
He didn’t continue talking, even if she only cared for a moment to give him alms, Qiu Li was very satisfied.
Jiang Yu hurried out, rummaged through boxes and cabinets to find scald cream, and after finding it, she checked the injury on the back of Qiu Li’s hand and said, “No, you have to go to the hospital.”
“No, it’s not necessary.”
The doctor would instantly figure out that it was not firecracker burns, and he didn’t want Jiang Yu to know what happened last night.
He could handle his own business.
“You have to go.” Jiang Yu said stubbornly: “If there is a scar, it will be with you for the rest of your life. You must go to the hospital to treat the wound.”
“I’m not a woman, so why would I be afraid of getting a scar.”
“You have to go.”
“I don’t want to go.”
“You won’t go!”
“If you don’t go, I’ll leave!”
Jiang Yu stood up angrily, walked to the door, and was unwilling to look back at him.
He was still lying on the bed, with one hand resting on the back of his head, without stopping her.
Jiang Yu stomped her feet, really not knowing what to do with him.
How could there be such a stubborn guy!
She was angry and anxious in her heart, looking at the burnt wound on the back of his hand, she felt sad again.
In the end, Jiang Yu turned back, sat on the edge of the bed, took his hand, took the scald cream, and evenly rubbed it on the back of his hand.
The scald ointment was cold, and it moistened the wound very comfortably.
Jiang Yu carefully applied the medicine for him, and complained in distress, “You are alone, and no one cares about you. What kind of firecrackers were you setting off? If you want to set off firecrackers, just call me next time. When you do things… if you make a mistake, no one will help you, and if you kill someone, no one will help you…”
As she spoke, her nose was sore, and she even choked and cried, “Idiot!”
Qiu Li’s heart tightened suddenly, he reached out and touched the corner of her eye, feeling the warmth of her tears.
“You… why are you crying?”
“I just think you’re stupid!” Jiang Yu sobbed and complained, “You always make mistakes, you always get hurt, no one cares about you, what will you do in the future!”
Qiu Li’s heart was like being shackled by something, he held her face tremblingly, and wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes with his rough fingers: “Don’t cry.”
Jiang Yu gasped, and bit her lower lip, to suppress the surging sadness.
“Don’t cry.” Qiu Li knelt down in front of her, wiped her tears hard, and said in a panic, “I’m going to the hospital, Xiao Yu, I’ll listen to you.”
Jiang Yu glanced at him, but she didn’t expect him to compromise so easily, “You are going to the hospital?”
“We’ll, go to the hospital, don’t cry in front of me.”
It almost killed him.
Jiang Yu wiped away her tears with her sleeve and smiled: “I’ll go with you.”
She took him to the city hospital to have a look. The doctor could definitely see that this was not a firecracker explosion.
But fortunately, Jiang Yu was only worried about whether he was hurt or not, and whether it would leave scars, so she didn’t get to the bottom of it.
The doctor prescribed scalding medicine for him and asked the nurse to help him with bandaging the wound.
After leaving the hospital, Qiu Li went to a shoe store, matched the shoelaces exactly like the original shoes, and asked the shoemaker to help repair the shoes.
The shoemaker wore a leather apron and sat on a chair, took the shoes and looked at them, frowning and said, “How could it be burned like this?”
“Can it be repaired?”
The shoemaker said: “Look at it, it’s all burnt, it doesn’t look good, you young people should definitely not be willing to wear it.”
“Please fix it, no matter how much money you want.”
Jiang Yu heard this and said helplessly: “Forget it, I’ll buy you a new pair that looks better.”
“I want this pair.”
She listened to his stubborn tone, and knew that this guy was stubborn and no one could really persuade him.
The shoemaker re-glued the shoes as much as possible, and filled the charred areas with other pigments. Although it was rough and simple, it could be worn out anyway.
Qiu Li gave the money, then sat on the small chair and put on these shoes.
Jiang Yu squatted down, took the shoelace from his hand, and carefully tied a bow for him.
“It still looks good.” She looked at the shoes, looked up at Qiu Li, and the corners of her eyes were like a moon: “My boyfriend looks good in everything.”
Before she finished speaking, Qiu Li suddenly lifted her chin, and kissed her forehead.
It was very light, as if he was afraid of offending her, and she was afraid that she would give him another big ear scratch.
After he kissed, he immediately let go of her with a guilty conscience, and strode out of the shoe store.
Jiang Yu stood up and shouted at him, “What are you running for?”
The money for shoe repairs hadn’t been paid yet!
Jiang Yu scanned the code to settle the bill, and reached out to touch her forehead.
There was still the boy’s warm lip print on his forehead, and she couldn’t help laughing…
