When she returned to her office, Jian Yiling’s supervisor noticed that she was a little flustered.
Her supervisor was a middle-aged female woman who looked rather friendly.
“What’s wrong? Is there something on your mind?”
“Am I just… A piece of equipment… To our research institution?” Jian Yiling asked.
Upon hearing this, the middle-aged female paused for a moment. Then, she smiled and told Jian Yiling: “Yiling, we’re all just pieces of equipment which belong to the research institution. They’re not just talking about you.”
“Why are we performing research? What is it for?”
“We’re performing research to protect those who deserve our protection. Sometimes, we directly protect them. Other times, we exchange our abilities and talents for money to indirectly protect them and ourselves.”
“But… I don’t have people I want to protect… I don’t have anyone… To love…”
“Yiling, it’s okay if your parents don’t love you. It’s not your fault. One day, you will meet people who love you. They will protect you and care for you. Then, all the research that you have done and all your efforts can be used to protect them.”
Jian Yiling woke from her dream.
When she opened her eyes, she stared into her dark room.
She met someone who loved her. But why couldn’t she protect him?
Was she not trying hard enough?
She didn’t understand the difference between familial love and romantic love.
However, she knew that she would be very sad and upset if Zhai Yunsheng died.
She didn’t want anything to happen to him.
However, she couldn’t protect him. She couldn’t keep him by her side.
All her research and medical studies were for naught.
At this moment, Jian Yiling felt a warm liquid run out of her eyes and down her cheeks.
Suddenly, something came to her mind. Jian Yiling got up and ran out of her room.
In the middle of the night, Zhai Yunsheng suddenly detected movement. A small figure ran into his room and jumped onto his bed.
She had a familiar smell.
Jian Yiling burrowed into Zhai Yunsheng’s blanket and wiggled into his arms.
Everything came unexpectedly.
“Yiling?” Zhai Yunsheng said as he looked down.
The person in his arms did not respond. Her small hands ran across his body.
“Yiling, what’s wrong?” Zhai Yunsheng asked. His voice was filled with confusion and worry.
“A Sheng, I want to have a baby with you.”
Jian Yiling resolutely said these words. It seemed as though this matter was rather pressing.
Upon hearing this, Zhai Yunsheng nearly fainted on the spot.
What kind of request was this?
“Yiling, why don’t you tell me what happened?”
In the dark, Zhai Yunsheng’s hand touched some wetness on Jian Yiling’s cheeks.
This realization made Zhai Yunsheng’s heart seize up.
He had never seen Jian Yiling cry before.
Even if she was wronged, coerced, or kidnapped, Jian Yiling had never shed a single tear.
“I can’t cure your condition.”
When Zhai Yunsheng heard this answer, he let out a sigh of relief.
Ahh, everything was alright. She wasn’t injured.
Then, Zhai Yunsheng reached out and gently stroked the back of Jian Yiling’s head. He soothed her and said:
“It’s alright. It’s not a big deal if you can’t cure my condition.”
Zhai Yunsheng was already used to this. From the very beginning, he never had much hope.
Ever since he was young, the Zhai family had sought countless doctors. He was already used to this.
He was already used to living in despair. He was used to the idea that he could die at any moment.
However, he didn’t expect to see her tears.
