Chapter 97: Is Mrs. Xue Angry?
Translator: Storm in a Teacup
In the ward, Mrs. Xue looked at Xue Haolin, feeling weird, “Is Xiaomi really the sister of Xin’er? But they don’t look close…”
Xue Haolin didn’t speak and poured a glass of water for her.
At this moment, a woman in a white coat walked into the ward, “Auntie, how are you? Why don’t you tell me that you’re here? I won’t know if Haolin didn’t call me.”
“It’s just a small illness. I don’t want to bother you with it.”
Wu Lin glanced at Xue Haolin helplessly and looked at Mrs. Xue’s X-ray film, “Nothing serious. Just a twisted ankle. But auntie, you have a severe calcium deficiency. Later, I will prescribe some calcium pills for you and you must take it every day at home, or you’ll be more likely to have osteoporosis as getting older.”
When Lin Xin’er returned, she saw a female doctor in the room.
Xue Haolin introduced, “This is Wu Lin, my cousin.”
“You must be Xin’er. I heard you from auntie.” Wu Lin greeted her with a smile.
Suddenly, Mrs. Xue asked Xue Haolin, “Are you free in the afternoon?”
Xue Haolin answered, “Yeah, of course. I’ll take you home later.”
Mrs. Xue said, “That’s good. Since you two are both here, don’t waste the time. You can take premarital checkups today. Wu Lin is also here. She can help you save some time.”
Mrs. Xue looked at Wu Lin and said, “I can’t go with them. You accompany Xin’er.”
Xue Haolin was helpless, “Mom, you are too anxious.”
“Of course I’m anxious. You are going to get married in two months. I’m looking forward to having a grandson.” Mrs. Xue then looked at Lin Xin’er, “Xin’er, do you have any problem with that?”
Lin Xin’er’s face was slightly pale but she shook her head, “Mrs. Xue, I agree with your arrangement.”
Mrs. Xue was so anxious to ask them to take premarital checkups, which made Lin Xin’er wonder if Lin Xiaomi had said something inappropriate to Mrs. Xue just now.
However, she was holding a wolf by the ears now.
She had no choice but to take a series of checkups with Wu Lin.
Xue Haolin finished the checkups and returned to the ward earlier, chatting with Mrs. Xue.
Wu Lin and Lin Xin’er came back later.
Lin Xin’er’s face was slightly pale. Xue Haolin was worried about her. He got up and walked forward to hold her hands, “Why are your hands so cold? Are you okay?”
Lin Xin’er’s eyes were a little red. She bit her lips and held his hands with a pitiful look, which seemed that she had suffered great grievances.
Xue Haolin looked at Wu Lin with questioning eyes.
Wu Lin looked upset. She passed the report to Mrs. Xue and whispered in her ear.
Mrs. Xue’s face suddenly changed, and she exclaimed, “What?”
“Mom, what’s wrong?”
Mrs. Xue looked at Lin Xin’er with questioning eyes, “Xin’er, you are seriously ill. How long will you conceal it from us? If I didn’t ask you to do the checkups, you would hide it after marriage, right?”
Lin Xin’er burst into tears with a pitiful look, helplessly looking at Mrs. Xue, “Mrs. Xue, it’s not like that. I’m just… just…”
Xue Haolin frowned at Wu Lin, “What’s wrong with Xin’er? What are you talking about?”
Mrs. Xue passed the report to Xue Haolin, a little bit annoyed.
Xue Haolin looked at the results in disbelief.
Congenital heart disease.
Lin Xin’er looked at him with tears in her eyes, “Haolin, I don’t mean to hide it from you. I just don’t know how to tell you.”
Then she ran out.
Xue Haolin’s mind went blank and he soon ran after her, leaving Mrs. Xue sighing in the ward, “I knew it wasn’t so simple! I’ve realized that she wasn’t simply weak when we had a meal that day. She has serious heart disease. What should we do now?”
“Auntie, don’t worry. Calm down.”
“How can I keep calm? If I hadn’t been cautious, she would have totally kept us in the dark. At that time, they would get married and what could Haolin do!”
Mrs. Xue held Wu Lin’s hands, “Tell me the truth. Can she give birth to a child?”
As the saying goes, prolonged illness may turn a patient into a doctor. Mrs. Xue had been in poor health these years, and she generally understood it.
Wu Lin wouldn’t hide the truth from her. She shook her head, “Generally, for this kind of disease, it will be a miracle to live beyond 25 years without heart transplantation. Let alone having a child, she cannot even bear intense sex life.
Mrs. Xue immediately looked worried.
Before Xue Haolin caught up with Lin Xin’er, she had weakly leaned against the wall with her hands over her heart.
Looking at her pale face, Xue Haolin was worried, “Xin’er, are you okay? Do you feel uncomfortable? Let’s go and see the doctor.”
He held her and was about to leave. Lin Xin’er took his hands, shook her head and fell into his arms, “Hao Lin, I don’t mean to hide it from you. I’m just afraid of losing you. Are you angry with me? Do you detest me? Sorry, I’m sorry.”
Xue Haolin finally understood why her face was always pale, why she was more afraid of cold than ordinary people, why she preferred light food and why she couldn’t do strenuous exercises.
Thinking of what happened after their reunion, Xue Haolin blamed himself for finding it too late.
Looking at the tearing face of Lin Xin’er, Xue Haolin held her in his arms with distress, “Nonsense, I won’t detest you. Have you forgotten what I said to you before? I will never detest you. But you shouldn’t have lied to me. Why did you hide it from me? If I know, I will take better care of you, little fool.”
Lin Xin’er didn’t expect such an answer. She looked at him in amazement, “Do you really mean what you say?”
Xue Haolin gently wiped away her tears, “You didn’t tell me your name when you were a kid. Is it because of your illness?”
Lin Xin’er was slightly shocked, nodding.
“I had no friends since childhood. They all detested me and didn’t play with me. You were the only one who were willing to talk to me. I was afraid that once you knew my disease, you would leave.”
Xue Haolin’s heart slightly ached. He thought of that quiet but kind girl who played with him when he was a child.
No wonder that she always refused to let him take her home. No wonder that she never told him her name. No wonder that she never had a friend.
Xue Haolin felt a little bit sad.
“Haolin, is Mrs. Xue angry with me? I was dishonest and concealed my illness from you. She definitely won’t want to see me again.” Lin Xin’er grabbed his hands in a panic, “Will she disagree with our marriage?”
Xue Haolin was a little worried, but rumpled her hair with a smile, “Little fool. Of course not. I will explain to her. I believe she will understand you.”
