“Ladies and gentlemen, the plane has reached JFK Airport. The temperature outside is seven degrees Celsius. For everyone’s safety, please remain seated until the plane comes to a complete standstill…”
Hearing the in-flight announcement, Pei Ge roused from her light sleep.
Those deeply furrowed brows of hers also smoothened as she opened her eyes.
Taking in a deep breath, she first looked at the dark sky outside before shifting her gaze onto the woman sitting beside her.
The flight might have been too tiring because the announcement did not wake up Tang Xiaoyu.
Seeing the latter sleeping soundly, the corners of her lips curled up.
“Did you have a nightmare earlier?”
As she looked at her best friend fondly, she heard Gu Zhengrong’s captivating voice.
Lifting her head, she looked up at him.
The man had already kept his laptop, and though he was expressionless, she could see the concern in his eyes.
“Mhm.” She nodded frankly and with a smile.
“I’m just worried about my mom…”
She pursed her lips as she voiced out her concern.
In actuality, ever since the plane took off for New York, her mind was not just worried about her mother but also…
“Don’t worry; your mom is now on the plane, too. She should arrive safely in Berlin soon.”
At his reassuring words, she nodded gratefully.
“Luckily, there’s you this time around; thank you so much, really.”
“…You don’t have to be polite with me.”
The man was happy to see her smiling at him but was still slightly upset over her politeness.
“Right! Why did you change your mind and let me leave with you?”
She was still bothered by the fact that she could not be on the same flight as her mother.
“I was worried about something unexpected cropping up,” he replied lightly.
Her brows twitched in slight perplexed. She did not understand what he was talking about.
Before the man could answer her query, Tang Xiaoyu happened to wake up at this point.
The woman yawned and blinked at the other two. She then spoke in a fatigue-tinged voice.
“What are you guys talking about?”
Seeing that she was awake now, Pei Ge smilingly replied, “Nothing much.”
The other pouted and mumbled, “I clearly heard you two chatting…”
Just as the other muttered this, her face turned ashen and she let out a shriek.
“Are you alright?!”
The man immediately stood up from his seat and walked to her side.
Seeing the man leave his seat, Tang Xiaoyu realized belatedly that her best friend was looking rather pale.
“Ge Ge, what’s wrong? Why is your face so pale?”
Starting to feel anxious, she hastily removed her seatbelt and helped her best friend out of hers.
The latter bit her lower lip tightly, and as though under excruciating pain, her face turned paler.
She covered her stomach with her hands. Other than pain, her watery eyes were filled with fear and worry.
“Go to the hospital! M-My child…”
Pei Ge reached out for her best friend’s hand anxiously.
The other nodded and turned to look at her boyfriend in panic.
“Zhengrong, quickly call…”
She realized then that, without her prompting, the man was already on the phone.
Seeing that his face was as wan as her friend’s, as though he were the one feeling ill, although she knew that the woman’s condition was not good, she still felt uncomfortable at this.
“Alright. I’ve arranged everything. We’ll get off the plane now.”
Unbothered by his girlfriend’s thoughts, the man princess-carried Pei Ge.
“Let’s leave here quickly.”
He proceeded to carry Pei Ge, whose pale face was streaked with perspiration, out of plane without a backward glance.
He left his girlfriend standing dazedly on the same spot. Only after a long time did the woman return to her senses.
“Did I make a mistake…”
Should she not have brought her best friend… Should she not be together with the man…
Otherwise… She would not be hurting so much right now…
Getting in a car, the man did not bring Pei Ge to a hospital but to his and Tang Xiaoyu’s apartment.
His girlfriend frowned deeply when she noticed that the car was heading to their shared apartment, instead.
“Zhengrong, shouldn’t we be going to the hospital?”
Sitting in the back seat, his eyes were fixed on the semi-conscious woman and did not pay attention to his girlfriend speaking.
“Hey! Can’t you see that she needs urgent medical assistance?”
Seated in the passenger seat, his girlfriend got angrier at his act of ignoring her.
“Soften your voice a bit.”
Despite her anger, the man remained cold to her.
Hearing his upset tone, her hands balled up tightly.
“Go to the hospital!”
She turned to the driver and ordered.
“Xiaoyu, it will just delay Pei Ge’s treatment if we go there. I’ve already contacted a private doctor.”
The man finally lifted his head to look at her.
“Private doctor? Since when did you have a private doctor? Why don’t I know about it?”
She frowned deeply at him.
Why does he have a private doctor without my knowledge?
“It’s Mr. Egger’s. He’s the one who helped your best friend’s mom invite Dr. Conrad for treatment. He said that he has a highly skilled doctor under his employment, so…
