In the real world, no one would still keep such a calm smile after being hit by a bullet, and he didn’t seem to feel any pain at all.
He thought of hitting Qiu Li’s heart with a gun that night, but he smiled like that.
Could it be that all of this was fake?
“No, it’s impossible!” Huo Shanglin’s hand holding the gun trembled, and he shook his head in disbelief: “I can’t be hypnotized. This is real, not fake!”
As soon as the voice fell, he fired a few more shots, but because of his trembling hands, the bullet hit the mast.
Huo Shanglin’s spirit almost collapsed: “This is real, it can’t be fake, it’s impossible! How could it…”
And Qiu Li walked towards him slowly.
“No! Don’t come over!”
Qiu Li saw the side of the ship not far behind him. Song Yuhe and other special police had already climbed onto the deck and were slowly approaching Huo Shanglin from behind, but he didn’t realize it.
Qiu Li said indifferently: “Don’t believe me yet, you are not in the South China Sea at all, your plan has failed, Huo Shanglin.”
“You lied to me!”
Before he finished speaking, Huo Shanglin was hit by a bullet in the hand that was going to detonate the switch.
The severe pain made him let go, and the ignition switch fell to the ground and was picked up by Song Yuhe.
Huo Shanglin still wanted to take it back, but the special police swarmed up and forced him to surrender within minutes.
Soon, the maritime police and special police took control of the “Sea Shark.”
In the distance, on the line of sea and sky where the night and day met, a cold moonlight illuminated the dim stratus clouds, like milk spilling on the sky.
Qiu Li’s face was pale, and he knelt on one knee, and then his whole body fell heavily in a pool of blood.
From the **** color, the crescent moon he saw was just like that night when he first saw it many years ago.
His consciousness was cloudy, and the running footsteps and voices of people around him were moving from far to near, and from near to far.
His world was noisy and silent at the same time.
Song Yuhe appeared in front of him, and he saw emotions of worry, tension, and regret from his eyes: “Hold on, the doctor will come right away! It’s okay, nothing will happen!”
Qiu Li looked at the bright moon in the sky, and a pale smile appeared at the corner of his mouth, “Teacher, am I clean.”
Jiang Yu didn’t know whether she was asleep or awake. This chaotic feeling seemed as if she was hypnotized again.
She dreamed of many things, even the Qiu Li of the previous life.
When she first saw the man, she remembered that it was the first sunny morning after the rain.
The man stepped on the green grass covered with rain and dew and came to the Huo family mansion in the suburbs.
At that time, she was barefoot, standing behind the white veil of the French windows on the second floor, secretly looking at the man on the grass.
The man was wearing a black formal jacket, even standing in the sun, he still looked cold.
He was very handsome, Jiang Yu had never seen a man more handsome than him, even the looks of the so-called beauty idol on TV were eclipsed compared with this man.
“He is a private psychiatrist invited by Mr. Huo to treat Mr. Huo’s bipolar disorder.”
The housekeeper’s voice rang behind her: “As per Mr. Huo’s instructions, since there are outsiders living in the house, Madam should stay on the second floor, and not go downstairs if you have nothing to do.”
“I can’t go to the garden?”
“Better not, Mr. Huo urged, Madam can only be active in the area on the second floor.”
At this moment, the man on the grass suddenly raised his head and cast a glance towards the balcony on the second floor.
His dark gaze ran onto Jiang Yu. The cold gaze shocked her, and she quickly turned her back and hid behind the wall.
When she looked out the window again curiously, the man was gone.
“Is he a psychiatrist?”
“Can I ask him to help me for my insomnia?”
“No, ma’am. Mr. Huo once told you that you can’t come into contact with anyone when he is not at home.”
For a long time, Jiang Yu suspected that the housekeeper in front of her was a robot, or, more like a prison guard, wearing an emotionless mask, completely blocking her life.
Jiang Yu wanted to escape very much, even if she was killed by the pistol Huo Cheng had kept in his study in the next second, it would be better than to live such a life of walking dead.
Maybe the psychiatrist could help her.
Jiang Yu woke up, and there were many memories of the previous life in her mind. These memories seemed to have been sealed by a black box after she was reborn.
Now, the black box of memory had opened a gap, and she remembered many things she hadn’t thought of in the past.
For example, the first time she and the man saw each other, through the thin white gauze curtain, it was a stunning glance, as if in her calm and stagnant heart lake, a small stone was thrown, and ripples started appearing.
Jiang Yu suddenly struggled out of the fragments of the dream and opened her eyes.
In the ward, the sun was quiet and warm, and there were several beautiful yellow and white daisies placed on the pillow-side cabinet, as well as brightly washed cherries and cream strawberries.
She blinked and saw the people in the room.
The first thing that caught her eye was Jiang Manyi’s worried and tired face: “Xiao Yu.”
“Mom, why are you here…” Jiang Yu’s voice was weak: “Where is this…”
“Baby! You finally woke up! Where do you feel uncomfortable?”
Cheng Ye anxiously got up from the sofa and threw himself in front of Jiang Yu. He grabbed her hand like a mountain: “You have slept for several days!”
When Jiang Yu saw Cheng Ye, she was very at a loss. Then she turned her head and saw Xie Yuan sitting tense on the solo sofa by the window. She became even more confused: “Dad, mom and dad, you guys… are here!”
“Should we not come, such a big thing happened! When Police Officer Chen contacted us, my heart stopped for a moment! I couldn’t wait for the flight. So we just took your dad’s private jet.”
Jiang Manyi clutched her chest and said in shock: “If I knew that kid Qiu Li was doing such a dangerous thing. I wouldn’t let you go to Haicheng even if I died!”
“Qiu Li!” Jiang Yu woke up suddenly: “How is he?”
She remembered that she came out of the school carrying his clothes, and an unlicensed black Mercedes was suddenly parked in front of her, and swiftly took her away. It happened so fast that she didn’t even have half a second to react and struggle.
The Mercedes-Benz took her to a small hotel and tied her up. Then the other party dialled the video call, and she knew what Qiu Li was doing.
The other party was using her to blackmail him.
Soon, under Qiu Li’s hypnosis, she fell asleep. Fortunately, there was a GPS positioning system connected to Duan Bo’s computer in her clothes. Therefore, she seemed to see a policeman breaking into the door while she was half-dreaming and half-awake.
Later… She really didn’t remember anything.
She was not injured, just slept, and this time, she didn’t know for how many days she slept.
Jiang Yu was completely awake and eagerly asked: “How is he? Did he commit a crime? I remember… I remember those people took him on the boat and threatened him… Will he be sentenced to death?”
Cheng Ye said: “Don’t worry, Police Officer Chen said that he was an undercover informant, and he will not be sentenced for this action. He was just shot. We don’t know whether he lives or not.”
Jiang Yu’s face went pale, and the whole person was dumbfounded.
“When is this, you still scared her.”
Jiang Manyi nudged Cheng Ye and said, “Don’t worry, Xiao Yu, his life is not under any threat, but his left leg…maybe gone. The doctor said he would have to use a wheelchair.”
Hearing that his life was not in danger, Jiang Yu breathed a sigh of relief, and tremblingly asked: “The left leg… is gone, is it… is he disabled?”
“Sure enough, it’s not that I don’t know that I feel distressed.”
Xie Yuan finally couldn’t listen anymore. He stepped forward and comforted Jiang Yu and said, “Don’t worry, Xiao Yu, it’s not that serious. It’s just a shot in the knee. The doctor said the possibility of recovery is still great. Don’t worry, Dad will definitely help you fix him, you won’t have a disabled boyfriend.”
Cheng Ye: “Do you treat this as a car repair, what if it can’t be repaired?”
Xie Yuan: “As long as the car crashes, regardless of the cost, it can be repaired well.”
Cheng Ye: “What if it doesn’t work if it’s repaired?”
Xie Yuan: “Then change one.”
Cheng Ye: “My suggestion is also to change another one, this stinky boy! Our daughter has travelled a long way to reconcile with him, but I can’t give her to someone who can… actually play Infernal Affairs!”
Jiang Manyi finally couldn’t listen anymore: “Can you two say a few words, you have been arguing all the way, can you stop it!”
During the quarrel between her two fathers, Jiang Yu had already got out of bed and put on the sneakers by the door: “Where is Qiu Li? I want to see him.”
Jiang Manyi hurried to catch up: “Ah, it may not be convenient now. We went to see him in the orthopaedic special care room yesterday, but the nurses stopped us.”
“I’ll just have a look at the door.”
Jiang Yu walked out of the ward without hesitation and walked in the direction of the elevator.
At this moment, the phone rang, it was an unfamiliar number from Haicheng.
Jiang Yu answered the phone.
“Xiao Yu, are you awake?”
The familiar voice on the phone, the heart that made her float, finally fell to the ground: “I woke up…”
“Counting the time, it was time for you to wake up.”
She seemed to be able to imagine the man on the phone looking down and smiling at this moment: “A Li, where are you, I am looking for you now.”
“Don’t come here.” The man’s low voice slowly said, “Xiao Yu, I got a shot in the knee.”
Jiang Yu’s eyes were red, and her heart was broken: “Are you in the orthopaedic special care room on the third floor of the city hospital? I’m at the elevator right now.”
“When he shot this shot, Huo Shanglin, that fool, he really thought I didn’t hurt, he really thought he was hypnotized.”
The man on the phone was still smiling, and his deep voice slowly said, “But I was really hurt. Even if Xiao Yu is not by my side, my heart felt so painful that my heart almost stopped. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this pain in my life. Except for the break up with Xiao Yu…”
“I’m getting on the elevator right away!”
With a “ding”, the elevator door opened at a distance of ten meters. The man was leaning on the handle on the side of the elevator, supporting his body with one hand, while holding the phone in the other hand. His left leg was still wrapped in a thick plaster.
Even though he was hurt so badly but since he was going to see his girlfriend, he had still put on a clean white shirt, and the buttons were fastened to the last one on the collar, meticulously.
His face was as pale as paper, and the corners of his mouth were dry and peeled. He took the phone and stared at the girl in the hallway, “I think it hurts a little bit more. Perhaps I will be more qualified to stand…, step by step and walk in front of you. Cleanly… walk in front of you.”
With a pale smile on his mouth, he walked out of the elevator, holding on to the handle on the wall with difficulty, walking slowly towards her step by step.
Hot tears flowed down her cheeks, ticking.
The sun shone on the young Jiang Yu’s face, and her skin seemed to be shining white.
The sky was shining, and the long-standing haze under her dark eyes was finally swept away.
He seemed to be what she had always hoped for.
Always walking in the sun, warm and pure.
At this moment, the phone “ding” was actually a message from the [Knowledge] app.
The news was sent by the future [Qiu Li]: “Xiao Yu, I’m fine.”
Jiang Yu looked at the news he sent, her hands trembling, joy, ecstasy, relaxation and sadness after being moved…
All emotions rushed to her heart instantly, she cried and laughed, laughing and crying.
Finally changed the fate of his established death.
They would get better in the future, they would all get better.
Qiu Li stopped and looked at the girl staring at the phone in front of him, slightly dissatisfied: “I’m all like this, and I want to come to you for the first time, but you are looking at the phone?”
Jiang Yu wiped away the tears from the corners of her eyes with her sleeves, slowly opened her arms, and shouted with a smile, “Boyfriend, come here and let me hug you.”
