Feng Jianyu's resolve to punish her a little longer cracked hearing her never-ending sobs and kitten-like voice.
"You are impossible" He hugged the girl who was crying her heart and caressed her back carefully. "Yes, I was late…I'm so sorry about that. I'm so sorry…. But the watch you gave me was badly damaged…I could not find your location…. I'm sorry for scaring you like this…. I failed in my efforts to find you on time.... It's all my fault. Please stop crying, love….. Stop crying…"
"You didn't said I Love You" He heard a muffled voice accompanied by a sniff from his chest and chuckled.
"I Love you 2…. I LOVE YOU 3… I LOVE 4… And I love you till the counting goes on. Happy now?" He added on and kissed her on hair. "Don't leave my side love. It's safer that way. I can't imagine my life without you"
His words made her cry even harder….. Her cries were getting louder and sorrowful that it alarmed Dr. Wang Shi, Lu Xion, Feng Jin, and Wu Zixin. They ran towards the room to check if everything is fine with Xiu Mei and saw her crying in Feng Jianyu's arms, who was equally consoling her.
As Feng Jianyu's back was towards the door he didn't notice that someone have disturbed their private moments but Xiu Mei saw them standing at the door. She instantly wiped her tears as except Jianyu noone has the right too see her vulnerable side. This is exclusive to her husband.
"H-Hi everyone" She croaked out, waving her hand at them.
Lu Xion and Xiu Mei's gaze met, and the former seems to be saying YOU- OWE-ME-AN-EXPLANATION.
She saw another man entering the room wearing a military uniform. But this uniform was different; instead of black, it was blue… Oh, wait! This was their home country's military uniform. Looking at tassel and star at his shoulder he is the major general. Such a high ranking officer! What is he doing in Country B? Wrong question! Why does he resemble Jianyu? Hold on! He is Feng Dingxiong's third son!?
Feng Jianyu turned back and saw the uninvited guests entering inside. Ignoring them he moved a little to sit by her bedside and pushed the button to prop the headboard up. "Do you want anything?"
"I'll get it" Wu Zixin volunteered and went out to get a glass of water.
In the meantime, Wang Shi examined her, "Except for external injuries and slight swelling near 9th and 10th intercostal space, everything is fine. There is nothing serious"
"What about swelling?"
Lu Xion and Feng Jianyu asked at the same time and gave an annoyed look at each other.
"Cough… That's probably something hit her there. Rest assured it will be gone in a week" Wang Shi replied professionally.
Feng Jianyu took the glass of water from Wu Zixin and helped her drink it. She was so thirsty that she finished it all in one go. "Do you need more?"
Suddenly Xiu Mei remembers about someone and abruptly yanked out the IV needle, ready to go out again. "Whoaa!" What are you doing? Feng Jianyu grabbed her wrist with one hand while supported her leg with the other.
"Ghost, Roxie, and Gemie. Where are they? Had you left them in the forest? Ghost got injured while saving my life"
"Relax! They are fine. That man with you was properly treated and sleeping in one of the rooms while the dogs are sedated" Wang Shi answered.
"Why?" Xiu Mei frowned.
"Because they were not allowing anyone to touch you or that man" This time Lu Xion replied "On the field, our team had to restrain them first in order to get you here" The time Feng Jianyu tried to go near Xiu Mei, Roxie and Gemie lunged on him to protect her. If it was not his men who restrained them on time they would have succeeded in their attempt. But the giant dogs bite few of their men, forcing to use tranquilizers.
"Cruel people!" She murmured.
"Miss. Mei if you are feeling fine, could you please tell us about Kong's secret base?" For Feng Jin duty comes first and then family. She might be his future sister in law, but at present, he is on a mission to help Country B. But considering their relation, he kept his voice gentle and hoped she would tell them everything.
Xiu Mei shook her head, "No! I won't disclose the details of Kong's secret base. Not yet"
"Why? My team is fully prepared, it won't take us more than 20 minutes to annihilate them. Let's get over with this mission ASAP" Feng Jin frowned. Earlier he didn't care but looking at the miserable condition of people living in this region and how corrupt military power is, he was determined to help them. Otherwise, organizations like these take no time in spreading their wings to other countries.
"Exactly XM, let's finish this illegal company. Isn't this your goal too?" Qingzhou joined them and supported Feng Jin.
Xiu Mei nodded and answered, "Yes, I want to destroy them too. But not at the cost of innocent lives trapped inside the base"
"Innocent lives?" Wang Shi asked as he inserted the IV needle back in her hand under the piercing gaze of Feng Jianyu, who was looking at him as though ready to attack if she winced or cried because of pain. Thankfully she was busy in interaction and forgot about the needle.
"At present, there are more than ten thousand workers trapped inside the base" She revealed the shocking news and looked at Qingzhou, "Mr. Pang, what do you think why people of this region never complained about their situation to the President and let the Kong's flourish to this extent?"
"Because they are related to those ten thousand workers" After a short silence, Feng Jianyu said confidently, shocking everyone present. "These people are blackmailed to keep their mouths shut in the name of their family member/workers trapped inside the base. Am I right?"
