Zhuang Nai Nai spent the rest of the night, taking care of her ailing mother.
She held her mother’s hand as she sat by her bed in the General Ward. Only after one experienced such an incident would one finally understood what that feeling of lost meant.
Back then, the fear of losing her mother exceeded the anger she felt towards the driver.
Intercranial haemorrhage, concussion….. She searched those terms on Baidu and what she found scared her so much. Her mother might not wake up, her mother might remain in a vegetative state for the rest of her life.
She looked at her mother who was lying on the patient’s bed. Deep down inside, she prayed: Mom, please wake up. Please open your eyes. Please look at me…
Maybe the gods were listening to her. On the second day, her mother’s lashed fluttered open and she woke up.
Zhuang Nai Nai cried in relief as she hugged her mother, “You finally wake up, mom!”
Tears flowed down her face as she held her mother tight, but her mother’s first sentence caused her stomach to drop, “Who are you?”
Zhuang Nai Nai panicked and immediately called the doctor.
When the doctor came, Zhuang mama was so scared that she started trembling.
All the neurosurgeons in the hospital were called to check on her mother. The most probable reason for her behaviour was the blood clot inside her head. The only way to heal her was through surgery.
The hospital fee and the emergency surgery fee already used up all the money her mother had saved for her education, they did not have the 300,000 yuan needed for the second surgery!
300, 000 yuan!
That amount was impossible for her who had just graduated high school.
The hospital was not a charity home, if they did not have the 300,000 yuan, her mother would not be able to undergo that surgery.
For the first time in her life, Zhuang Nai Nai realized just how important money was. For the first time in her life, she felt completely and utterly helpless.
After informing her about their opinions, the doctors left her to ponder over what she should do.
Her mother was sleeping after she was given tranquilizers. She looked peaceful, just like how she used to.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s tears fell.
She did not know who she should to go for help. Her mother was the only one she had.
She bit her lips and dialled Si Zheng Ting’s number.
She knew she should not borrow money from him, but she had no one else to turn to.
She did not even have to options to sell herself, like those girls in those melodramatic novels.
She waited with bated breath as she waited for him to answer her call. In the end, he did not answer the call.
Where on earth was Si Zheng Ting? Why couldn’t she contact him for the past 2 days?
Was he still ignoring her because of their fight?
As she paced in the corridor, she got a call from the police station. They had found the person who hit her mother!
Zhuang Nai Nai ran to the police station, wanting to ask for compensation from the driver.
The driver was a taxi driver. When he saw Zhuang Nai Nai coming into the police station, he smiled at her.
