Chapter 2364: A Foreboding

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios

Something fishy was going on.

This was no peaceful year at all. First, her father got splashed with acid, then Lu Jingtian was severely burned. Both were admitted to this hospital at about the same time. It was too coincidental to ignore.

Ji Lin hurried off after a brief conversation with her.

Sitting on the long bench, Yun Shishi was too distracted by her thoughts to continue with her script-reading. She walked up and stood at the entrance to her father’s ward with a dazed look. Her brows furrowed as she stared at her ill father on the bed.

Her brother came for his shift shortly after.

As per the arrangement between them, he would take over the night watch at 1 AM so that she could go back to the hotel for some rest. She would then come over at nine o’clock the following morning. The dayshift was less worrisome as there would be people around to assist her in taking care of the old man.

The man arrived at 1 AM as agreed. Along the way, her brother bought some dinner for her. He then told her to return directly, so she could have enough rest.

The woman nodded woodenly. Just as she was about to walk away, he stopped her.

“Hold on a bit.”

“Yes”—the woman looked over her shoulder quizzically—”what is it?”

Her brother appeared worried about her. “You look listless today. Is something bothering you?”

She was stunned by his question and hastily came up with an excuse. “Nothing much… I just received a drama’s script and am now mulling over the plot.”

“Are you that professional?” asked her brother with a chuckle.

“You think so?”

He walked to her anterior and planted a quick kiss on her forehead. “A goodnight kiss for you!”

He could only do this under rare circumstances when her husband was not around.

It’s tough for the boy.

Yun Shishi could not help tittering.

Gong Jie nagged at her again. “It’s very late now. Put aside your script and have your beauty sleep once you reach the hotel, understand?”

“Alright, alright. I know what to do. Thanks for doing this; it must be tough on you!”

“Nothing is too tough for my sister.”

She smiled at her brother’s reply and left the VIP ward where her father was staying. However, she did not return to the hotel immediately. Instead, she made an unplanned detour to the emergency room.

Lu Jingtian’s family had gathered outside the room by then, sitting on the long bench with grave faces.

A middle-aged man was impatiently pacing about by the ER entrance. Looking at the anxious and distraught look on his face, the actress deduced that this man was the missy’s father.

“What happened? How did Tiantian… end up getting burned by fire for no reason?!”

Two, young ladies, who were standing on the side, quickly consoled, “Auntie, don’t worry; I’m sure Jingtian will pull through! The heavens look after her!”

“My daughter told me that she had asked you two out for a drink. Were you present when it happened?”

“No…” one of the ladies replied. “When we reached the bar, the area was already cordoned off by the police and the guards would not let us in. We didn’t suspect anything more and were about to leave when we saw the ambulance. This was when we realized that something serious had happened!”

“We saw a charred lady being carried out on a stretcher and didn’t recognize that she’s our Jingtian at that time! After that we tried calling her several times but to no avail, then we overheard some employees of the bar saying that a TV star was hurt in their premises. That was when we realized that she was the one sent to the hospital from there. We chased the ambulance to this hospital, and by then, she’s already been rushed into the ER!”

“Strangely though, the bar wasn’t burning then. From what I’ve heard, she’s the only one on fire and nothing else. We really don’t know what’s going on.”

These words only caused more heartache to Lu Jingtian’s mother.

At this time, the middle-aged man interjected impatiently as he stomped his foot on the ground, “What’s the point of talking about this now? She’s still in a critical condition. Presently, the most important thing is to keep her alive no matter what!”
