“Don’t jump into conclusions,” comforted Qin Zhou .
The moment they reached the hospital, she dashed to the reception and gave the actor’s name to the nurse on duty .
“Hua Jin?” The nurse shook her head dazedly . “I can’t find this name on the list . ”
“That… The person was stabbed in the abdomen and sent to this hospital just a while ago…”
“Madam, don’t be anxious; I couldn’t find the name you mentioned . As for the information that you’ve just provided… I’m sorry; there were two people with abdominal injuries rushed here earlier . I’m unsure which one you’re referring to . ”
“The person is very young… only in their early twenties and very pretty . ” She tried her best to describe the man in her anxious state .
The nurse thought for a bit and called another medic along . The medic then approached the two with a deadpan expression . “Are you the person’s family?
“Follow me . ”
The actress and her agent hurried to catch up with the physician .
The ambiance was sullen and heavy as they walked through the hospital hallway . Inwardly, the actress’s heart was laden with so much fear that she thought she would suffocate any time .
Soon, the hospital staff brought them to a tiny room just beside the emergency department . As she approached the door, the smell of strong antiseptic made her crinkle her nose .
The personnel pushed the door open, and they saw a trolley bed inside the room .
A figure, covered with a white sheet, lay, motionless, on the bed . The place felt cold, desolate, and… dead .
“What…” Qin Zhou was taken aback .
The medic turned around and looked at them with sympathetic eyes . “Your family was already gravely injured before reaching our hospital; we couldn’t find any vital signs during our attempt of reviving the person . We’re sorry for your loss! The hospital is only waiting for the dead’s family members—”
“W-What?!” She could not believe her ears . Cutting the man short, the actress tried to confirm what she had just heard . “The person lying in there…”
“Yes, that’s who you’re looking for . ”
Shaking her head in disbelief, she forced a smile and asked again, “No, th-that can’t be true… Are you sure?!”
“Didn’t you say that you were looking for someone in their twenties and very pretty?”
The actress’s mind drew a blank as she stared at him .
The hospital staff shook his head and consoled her gravely . “I can understand what you’re feeling now . Unfortunately, life can be unpredictable; I hope that you can try your best to come to terms with your loss . My condolences to you . ”
“No… no… This can’t be true…” She could not accept this news . Tears started trickling down her face as her eyes widened in disbelief . “He can’t die on me!”
“The trauma to the abdomen was deep . It impaired the guts and we couldn’t stop the bleeding . The dead went into hypovolemic shock on the way to the hospital… I’m truly sorry; we’ve tried our best!”
“No, it’s impossible!”
The woman broke down, kneeling on the floor helplessly as she sobbed uncontrollably . She still could not come to terms with the news .
“How could this happen?! Hua Jin was still joking with me before the ambulance arrived… How’s this possible… How’s this possible…”
“My condolences to you and your family . ”
With these few words, the physician crushed the remaining flimsy hope she had inside her .
Her heart was filled with pain as teardrops flowed unceasingly down her cheeks .
This can’t be true…
He was young and healthy . Before he got into the ambulance, he had held her hands with such strength . Up to now, she could still feel his warmth lingering on her palms .
He was very much alive earlier, so how could he be dead in the next instant?
Was it just a cruel, thin line separating life and death?Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
