“The letter is in my bedroom. He gave it to me before the operation.”
As soon as the word “operation” came out, Yi Hang and the Taoist priest immediately uttered an “oh~~" It turned out that this matter involved his "past" life.
Qi Le, “......”
Gu Bai was entirely focused on that letter and wasn’t in the mood to listen to them. He stared at Qi Le, “You’re not lying?”
“Why should I lie to you? You should recognize his handwriting, right?”
Gu Bai nodded, “But there are many people with similar handwriting.”
Qi Le thought for a moment and gritted his teeth. “Even if the handwriting is similar, I still have a painting with me. It was painted by him and has his unique signature on it. He wanted to give it to you, that’s why he left it with me. That can’t be faked, can it?”
Hearing that, Gu Bai suddenly looked stunned. He yelled, “Give it to me!”
Qi Le put on an innocent expression. “You have to wait for me to leave the hospital first.”
Gu Bai didn’t want to wait for even a moment longer. He wanted to know what was inside that letter. Staring straight at Qi Le, he said, “Call your friend and get him to bring it over."
“They don’t know where I put it and even if I told them, they would still be unable to find it. I’ll have to get it myself.” Qi Le looked at him sincerely. “Really, I’ll send it to you as soon as I get out of the hospital.”
“Leave earlier then.”
"That’s not possible. My friend has everything I need for the discharge procedure. Plus, I just hit my head again. I’ll have to stay for a few more days.....” Qi Le glanced at Gu Bai’s expression and hastily added, “I’ll give it to you in two days. Two days.”
Gu Bai eyed him and finally nodded at the compromise. He changed the subject, “How do you know Xiao Le?”
Qi Le blinked innocently. “I forgot.”
Pausing for a moment, Gu Bai tried another question, “When did you guys know each other?”
“Why did he give you the letter and the painting?”
Gu Bai, “...”
“I lost my memory,” Qi Le explained, racked with guilt. “I’ll...... tell you when I remember”
Gu Bai didn’t say anything.. He felt it was meaningless to stay any longer so he got up and left. Qi Le watched him exit the room and was finally able to relax again. Yi Hang rushed over, shook up his bed a little and sat down beside, looking curiously at him. “Your former friend?”
Qi Le nodded, somewhat emotional. He didn’t expect Gu Bai to have that sort of feelings for him. This was all too sudden. He still couldn’t accept it.
"He seems to really care about you. Why didn’t you tell him the truth?”
“It’s a long story.” Qi Le stared in daze, then pointed at the Taoist priest. “How does he know about the operation? Did the same thing happen to him? That’s impossible, right?"
“No, he died in his sleep at home. I think he really must’ve offended God. I told him about you.”
Qi Le nodded. “Listen carefully, don’t tell the person who was just here anything about me changing bodies, or Laozi will kill you.”
“You don’t want him to know?” The Taoist priest looked at him and said, “One should do good deeds and accumulate good karma. Since you don’t plan on telling the truth, then I will."
“...” Qi Le asked, “You’re looking to cause trouble because you were unhappy about the last time, aren’t you?”
Yi Hang immediately rushed over and tried his best to stop him. But the Taoist priest was ungrateful and stubbornly stuck to his resolve, “I’m trying to accumulate good karma.”
Qi Le murmured "Mmm," and pressed the button at the head of the bed. A little while later, a nurse came in and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Earlier, he suddenly said that this wasn’t his body and that he was someone else, but after that, he stopped talking.” Qi Le sighed, “Is he really ok? Sleeping with such a person makes me very worried about my personal safety.”
The little nurse quickly assured him, “I’ll speak to the doctor at once. Please inform us the moment something like this happens again.”
“Okay,” Qi Le watched her leave the ward and then turned to look at a certain someone.
Taoist priest, “......”
Yi Hang patted his shoulder and comforted, “Buddy, just accept it. People like us who’ve been to the psychiatric department really can’t argue against him."
Taoist priest, “......”
Qi Le was injured and dizzy. He simply drank some porridge and fell asleep again, sleeping through the entire night. The next day, he packed up and was ready to make a run to get painting supplies but just as he was about to leave, the door suddenly opened. Qi Le jumped in surprise, “What are you doing here?”
Gu Bai placed the food he brought on the table, pulled up a chair beside him and sat down to read without lifting his head. “I have nothing to do so I thought I might as well accompany you. I’ll wait until you’re discharged from the hospital and go with you to pick up my stuff. If you recall anything about Xiao Le during this period, please feel free to talk to me any time. If it’s someone else’s, I’m not interested.”
Qi Le: “=口=”
Damn it! Bro, if you watch over me like this, how am I going to prepare those things for you after I leave the hospital? Are you kidding me?!
“I got you some breakfast. If you haven’t eaten, then have some.” Gu Bai opened his book with an elegant gesture. “Do your own thing. Don’t mind me.”
Qi Le, “......”
“It’s been one day and one night without any news from Xiaoyuan and his cellphone is still turned off. Where has Xiaoyuan gone to?” Ye Shuichuan anxiously paced back and forth in the apartment, then stopped to look at Ning Xiao. “Didn’t you ask him when he left?”
Ning Xiao impassively answered, “I did.”
“What did he say?”
“Make a guess.”
“I don’t know, what did he say?!”
“Make a guess!”
“Fuck you!” Ye Shuichuan was enraged, “Why are you still fucking around at a time like this? How the hell am I supposed to guess?!"
Ning Xiao, “...”
