Realizing that time would still tick away mercilessly even as he stood here, Gu Zechuan felt that he could no longer afford to wait. He needed to go, he must go see Xia He now. In her final two months in this world, he wanted to be the one that stayed by her side!
The night before, Gu Zechuan already had Xu Feng looking into where Xia He had been staying, so when the director of the hospital broke the news to him, Gu Zechuan drove straight to where Xia He had lived for these two years.
Xia He didn’t live inside the bustling city. Instead, she lived at a remote countryside, where only few people lived. Life was slower there, and the place she lived looked more akin to a small farmhouse. She had a garden, filled with all the flowers she liked. Spring had just came, and one by one the flowers in her garden gradually began blooming. In her garden, everyday Xia He would water the flowers, give them fertilizers, and watch as her child stumbled around in shaky steps on the softened grass bed. Her life here was good, peaceful, and happy.
But this day, her peace was broken by the man who suddenly appeared at the gate.
When she realized it, Gu Zechuan already stood outside the little gate, and simply watched longingly at Xia He as she watered the flowers in the garden, and at the little boy that played on the ground by her feet.
A tall towering figure standing outside their little garden was very noticeable. When Xia He realized he was there, she was surprised. She didn’t think that Gu Zechuan would come to find her so soon.
