Cross the line
Shi Yunnan recalled the words and subconsciously let out a wry smile.
He looked at Luo Lingsheng in front of him and suddenly felt as if he had made a mistake.
He thought that the two of them had developed other feelings on top of the ‘agreement‘.
But now a simple phrase had pulled him back to his senses.
It turned out that, in Luo Lingsheng’s heart, he was just an outsider who had crossed the line.
A new round of silence permeated.
Suddenly, Luo Lingsheng did not dare look into Shi Yunnan’s eyes.
For the first time in his life, he was trapped in self-blame, low self-esteem, and guilt that he couldn’t break free from.
During the ragged breathing, his tense heartstrings were almost snapped.
Shi Yunnan slowly got up.
Just when Luo Lingsheng thought Shi Yunnan was about to leave, he merely went to fetch the wheelchair and pushed it back to his feet.
It may be difficult for Luo Lingsheng to reach the wheelchair by himself.
“I know what you’re afraid of, but the inconvenience of your legs is never your problem.
You’ve already had a better life than most people. “
Shi Yunnan lowered his eyes and quietly looked at Luo Lingsheng, who was like a trapped beast on the ground.
He couldn’t say whether he felt more distressed for the other party or more distressed for himself.
“Luo Lingsheng, I’m leaving now.”
“Get up by yourself.”
Shi Yunnan said these words and quickly walked out of the training room.
When he stepped out of the door, he happened to meet Luo Rong, who was approaching.
The two faced each other.
Luo Rong was a little surprised, “Mr.
Shi Is Lingsheng in there“
Shi Yunnan suppressed the astringency that was gradually creeping inside his heart, saying, “But you’d better not disturb him now.”
Before Luo Lingsheng was back in his wheelchair, he should not have wanted anyone to see his embarrassed appearance.
After Shi Yunnan finished speaking, he quickly walked past her.
Luo Rong stopped in place for a while.
Her natural instincts as a woman told her—
Shi Yunnan’s mood seemed to be a little off.
However, the two were strangers who had just met for the first time.
There were things she shouldn’t concern herself with.
Luo Rong waited outside for two or three minutes according to Shi Yunnan’s suggestion, and then walked in.
Shi Yunnan suppressed the chaos rising in his mind.
He walked out a dozen meters, and then stopped with resignation.
He lowered his head and stepped on the small stone under his feet, muttered, as if to vent his anger, “Cross the line I crossed the line”
If I really crossed the line, I would have climbed into your, Luo Lingsheng, bed long ago! You’re so used to being the head of the family that you can say anything you want!
But on second thought, Shi Yunnan also understood.
Luo Lingsheng was just too mindful of his legs.
In a desperate moment, he pressed him with harsh words.
Shi Yunnan caught a glimpse of the couple’s watch on his wrist, and his mood fluctuated again.
After a moment of hesitation, he immediately turned back towards the training room.
Anyway, it’s already like this.
There were still some thoughts he needed to get out of his chest.
In the worst case scenario, Luo Lingsheng couldn’t accept him, and the two of them eventually broke up.
Shi Yunan returned to the independent training room.
As soon as he entered the door, he heard the faint sound of conversation.
He subconsciously slowed down his footsteps and suppressed the urge to confess to Luo Lingsheng.
Shi Yunnan stood at the corner of the blind spot, and through the frosted glass, he could vaguely see the situation inside—
One person in the room was Luo Rong, standing, and the other was Luo Lingsheng, who had already sat back in the wheelchair.
Shi Yunnan knew that eavesdropping on other people’s conversations was improper, so he was about to make a sound as he entered, but Luo Rong’s question suddenly made him freeze in place.
“Why suddenly get married With Mr.
Shi on top of that “
Even if he knew that such ‘eavesdropping‘ was disrespectful, Shi Yunnan still stood at the corner and did not move at this second.
Luo Lingsheng in the room was silent, but Luo Rong continued the topic, “I remember you had a person you liked before, right Before the Luo family’s big incident, weren’t you planning to pursue that person “
For a moment, the light in Shi Yunnan’s eyes dimmed. He suddenly recalled the conversation he had overheard from the servants just before entering the Luo family.
—Does the patriarch have someone in his heart How do you know
—I also heard others say that the patriarch had a crush on someone.
But before he could pursue that person, he had an accident and injured his leg.
That’s how it ended.
Shi Yunnan always thought that these gossips were just jokes made by servants, but now that even Luo Rong said similar things, he knew that everything was true.
Luo Lingsheng had a white moonlight1Unrequited love in his heart. He was just an outsider who ‘agreed to marry’ and could not cross the line.
Shi Yunnan’s hanging hands clenched into fists unconsciously.
The courage fueled by impulsiveness was completely dispelled.
He was afraid that if he stayed here he would only hear more of what he didn’t want to hear, so he stiffly turned and walked away as if to escape.
The conversation inside continued.
Luo Rong rarely saw Luo Lingsheng’s distracted appearance and said in surprise, “Lingsheng What are you thinking about I’ve come to see you after a long time, but you’re not here with me“
“I saw that Mr.
Shi was in a bad state.
Did the two of you quarrel “
Luo Lingsheng’s own sister and Luo Rong were of the same age.
Although the elders fought openly and secretly, the two cousins had a good relationship since they were young.
The relationship between Luo Lingsheng and Luo Rong was not bad either.
Back then, before the big incident in the Luo family, the three cousins got together for a drink.
Under the unanimous coaxing and questioning of his own sister and his cousin, Luo Lingsheng reluctantly revealed that ‘he had someone in his heart.’
But the good times didn’t last long.
Old Master Luo died of a heart attack not long after, and then the whole family was fighting both with open and secret means.
Luo Lingsheng went through a lot of hardships to become the head of the family.
Many of the Imperial Capital gentry tried to capture him, but the results were all there—
No one can succeed.
Some people who approached him with improper intentions ended up even worse.
Everyone said that Luo Lingsheng definitely didn’t plan to find his other half.
When these things came to Luo Rong’s ears, she took it for granted that her cousin still had the secret crush hidden in his heart, but he was reluctant to act due to his legs.
Unexpectedly, the news of Luo Lingsheng and Shi Yunnan’s getting a marriage certificate suddenly came out this year.
It wasn’t easy to find time to return to the country.
She naturally wanted to ask for the truth.
Luo Lingsheng’s eyes showed complexity and self-blame.
He asked, “Did you just run into him”
“Yes, I don’t think he’s in a good mood.” Luo Rong told the truth, and her curiosity intensified, “Tell me quickly, what is going on with you two”
With Luo Lingsheng’s character, she really couldn’t imagine that he would play this kind of marriage game with others.
“As you can see, I’m serious about marrying him.”
Luo Lingsheng’s answer was very brief.
He wasn’t someone who liked to divulge details of his private life.
Luo Rong asked again, “…Then have you let go of the person that was in your heart back then”
“There was never anyone else.”
A simple one-sentence answer completely shook Luo Rong in place.
She let out an unbelievable short laugh, obviously not expecting that person just now to be her cousin’s sweetheart.
Luo Lingsheng didn’t care about her reaction; he just said, “Don’t tell Yunnan about this.
I don’t want to burden him.“
The two of them are married by ‘contract’ .
If Shi Yunnan got tired of this kind of life one day, he could let him leave at any time.
Since the accident, he had struggled to cure his legs, but the chance was very slim.
If he was destined to live in a wheelchair all his life, he wouldn’t force Shi Yunnan to ‘cross the line’ .
He doesn’t care about his life, but he can’t harm Shi Yunnan.
Luo Rong knew what to say and what not to say, “Don’t worry, I’m going to fly abroad this afternoon, and I don’t know when I will return to the country again.
I won’t mess with your husbands’ matters.
She looked at Luo Lingsheng’s legs and mentioned the serious business that was the purpose of her visit, “By the way, I have something important to tell you.“
“What is it”
“I asked your cousin-in-law to contact Bence’s team, the world-renowned team in the neurology department, for you.
They happened to be from the same origin as Dr.
Michele’s team that treated you before.
Luo Rong married a foreigner who was the director of a foreign private hospital, so she had many connections in the medical field.
In the past two years, the husband and wife have gone through a lot of trouble over Luo Lingsheng’s matter.
“Six months ago, they met a patient with a similar condition to yours.
After a half-year of rest and rehabilitation after the operation, although that person hasn’t reached the level of normal people, at least they don’t need to rely on a wheelchair all day. “
“Your brother-in-law immediately contacted the two teams and gave a general overview of your situation.
The two sides discussed and studied for a long time, and finally came to the conclusion that ‘you can give it a try‘ , but there is no guarantee.
“The most difficult part is that the success rate of the operation is very low.
If this treatment fails, your sciatic nerve may not be able to withstand any further excessive rehab and treatment…“
In other words, the chances of a successful operation are much lower than the dangers of a failed operation.
After Luo Lingsheng heard these words, he was silent for a long time.
Luo Rong knew that it was difficult to decide, so she gave him tactful advice first, “What your brother-in-law means is that if you are willing, it would be best for you to go for another full examination so that both teams can re-evaluate based on your current situation.”
The conditions of each individual are different, and the specific situation still needs to be analyzed in detail.
As for money, that’s the last thing that they lack.
As long as there was hope for a recovery, everything would be easy to negotiate.
“When can I make an appointment for an examination” Luo Lingsheng asked in a determined way.
All that came to his mind was the look in Shi Yunnan’s eyes just now.
“I think the sooner the better.”
“If you are in a hurry, you might as well go abroad with me this afternoon I figured that you wouldn’t give up, so I already spoke with your brother-in-law on the phone yesterday.
If you’re certain, we should be able to make an appointment tomorrow or the day after.
Luo Lingsheng replied, “Okay.”
The wind on both sides of the car window poured in frantically, whistling in Shi Yunnan’s ears, but even this couldn’t quench the indescribable anxiety in his heart.
Thinking of his behavior during the past three months, his mind was full of absurdity and ridicule.
Because of a dream, he bet himself on a piece contract.
For this reason, he fell into his own trap and fell in love with someone he shouldn’t.
In the end, he didn’t even get to confess to Luo Lingsheng before he realized he was just an extra.
At the thought of having fooled around with Luo Lingsheng by relying on the so-called “contract” and even calling him “husband” many times, he felt an unprecedented shame.
Shi Yunnan suppressed the lump in his throat and simply parked the car in the roadside parking space.
He took out his cell phone and flipped through it.
Wen Yibei had just gone through a fight at the banquet yesterday, so Shi Yunnan didn’t want to bring any more negativity to the other party.
Shi Yunnan thought for a while, and immediately called his friend.
The ‘di’ sounded on the phone for a while before Fu Ziyu picked up the call, “Hey, son, what are you doing”
“Are you at the nightclub” Shi Yunnan asked.
Fu Ziyu was stunned for a while, and said in a hoarse voice, “It’s only two o’clock in the afternoon.
Which nightclub is doing business during the day This week, the nightclub held an event, and I was busy until 4:00 or 5:00 a.m.
I’m so exhausted.
Fu Ziyu’s voice on the phone was indeed full of exhaustion.
He seemed to be half asleep and asked, “What’s up Should I get up and go find you now “
“Forget it, it’s nothing important.”
Shi Yunnan declined, pretending to be relaxed, “It’s just that I haven’t sat down and had a good drink with you for a long time.
Last time I didn’t even get to start before Yuan Rui came up.
“Damn, that was such a shame.
Come over tonight.
I’ll accompany you to drink.
Across the phone, Fu Ziyu, who had just woken up, didn’t notice anything unusual about his friend.
He paused for a while, and then jokingly said, “However, you should talk to Luo Lingsheng first, lest he…”
When Shi Yunnan heard the name, he frowned and interrupted, “Stop talking, go to sleep.”
After saying that, he hurriedly hung up the phone, as if to escape.
His heart was even more uncomfortable.
Shi Yunnan looked at the few contacts on his phone, and his heart felt a little hollow.
