The cries of the premature baby were so faint while the nurse hummed. As for the mother…Luo Xun and Yan Fei came into the room to see Liu Xiangyu in a semi-coma.
That bossy aunt with dyed hair now had this pale appearance, even Luo Xun felt some melancholy at the sight.
Yan Fei did not say or do anything. In her half conscious state, Liu Xiangyu did not realize her son was there while she looked at the baby sleeping next to her. Luo Xun suddenly smelt something while listening to the conversation outside, after all people had to eat.
“Why is the smell of blood so heavy?”
“Blood?” Yan Fei paused for a moment, “Women always bleed a bit while giving birth?”
“Not that….wait a minute!” Luo Xun stepped forward and removed the quilt covering Liu Xiangyu’s body. Red blood seeped from her thin pajamas and almost died the mattress scarlet!
“Doctor, doctor! The patient is losing blood!” Luo Xun shouted, causing a commotion outside.
“Where are you going?!” Liu Xiangyu’s boyfriend yelled out.
Was there a need to ask? They were probably aware of the mother bleeding out after giving birth, but since it was just a chance, they did not tell them at first!
This time the doctor had two nurses to help, could the three regular people stop it? Hearing Luo Xun’s voice, they knew the situation was not good and wanted to run away. Who would have expected that among the couple there was an ability user? All the metal in the room came alive and the escape plan was foiled.
“It’s out of our hands…the patient gave birth early because of a fall, and the equipment here is limited…”
“Limited conditions are the reason why you turned around to run?” Yan Fei was actually angry, the woman lying in bed was his biological mother, even if he hated and tried to sever their relationship that did not mean he wanted to watch her die like this! If not for Luo Xun’s quick thinking…
The doctor could not do anything, said they should quickly send her to the hospital for treatment.
Could be postpartum hemorrhage…failed to stop or replenish blood in time. Before they could transfer, Liu Xiangyu lost consciousness and her heartbeat stopped.
An unexpected premature birth left an extremely thin baby that could die at any moment.
The next morning was filled with dazzling sunlight but the atmosphere in the room only got colder.
Xu Mei and the others came early in the morning, after all a family member of their teammate died. They sent the pair crystal cores, points and asked if there was any need for help.
The same morning, Yan Gexin took the initiative to call and inquire about the situation. He was silent after hearing that Liu Xiangyu had died before unexpectedly saying, “Where is the address? I’ll visit in a minute.”
Yan Fei was slightly surprised as he relayed the address before hanging up the phone.
After the apocalypse funerals were short or completely ignored. As long as the bodies were sent for cremation along with a container for the ashes. The item would then be buried to the west of base where the tombs were located.
There were no tombstones, burning paper or funeral procession. Since the cemetery was outside base, many people were completely afraid to leave and could only hand over the ashes for the military to deal with. They could only go out at a certain time and place the urns in a large pit before covering with soil. There were other things to think about and the costs were not low.
Things were more simplistic after the end, people would wear mourning clothes, carry the person for cremation and then find a chance for the ashes to be buried out of base.
Yan Gexin arrived two hours later, just in time to receive the ashes. Yan Fei glanced at the place where the car was parked, it and the assistant was one he had seen before so he raised an eyebrow with surprise.
Yan Gexin silently looked at the humble box and pulled Yan Fei aside to talk on the balcony.
Luo Xun hugged Yan Fei’s newly born little brother – yes it was a boy. Because there was no milk, his biological father had to cook some rice soup to barely fill the child’s stomach. Xu Mei was also interested in the child. Although she and Song Lingling were raising Yu Xinran, this was a newborn, they were afraid to even touch the fragile baby.
Even his biological father was afraid to hold, after all he was premature and so small. On the balcony, the father and son were in a deadlock.
Yan Fei had a sarcastic smile on his face, “So you came here today just to get me into the barracks?”
Yan Gexin was not as spry as he used to be, his appearance had aged 10 years. It had nothing to do with the death of his ex-wife…the changes in life were too fast.
Yan Gexin was tired and he did not have the leadership and momentum from before. “Little Yan, Dad had no choice but to come to you…there is a big problem in the army, those with abilities and power and stepping all over the civilian staff! You are an ability user, only you can help your father!”
Yan Fei crossed his arms, unmoved. “I clearly told you my answer before.”
“It’s not the same as it was then!” Yan Gexin sounded exhausted and hysterical. “The barracks are now a group of barbarians! What do we look like when they step on us? Father needs to catch up with them or in a few days…how old is your father? You have the heart to watch me get kicked out…where would I work, sweeping the streets?” He looked gloomily around the room. “Your mother has passed away…your father has a few years left to live. Somehow…even if you help a little, don’t let Dad get displaced in his later years…”
Yan Fei lightly smirked, “They’re going to kick you out of the barracks?”
Embarrassment flashed across Yan Gexin’s face. “They are going to take my position…assign it somewhere else…to live in a group room with others.”
Yan Fei looked at Yan Gexin’s awkward expression and then asked, “If I go, what would I do?”
Yan Gexin’s eyes lit up. “You do not know how important your powers are in the army! I heard that there were only one or two people left in the metal team, if you join, could be a captain! You are young and powerful, in less than 3 years you will surely climb up the ladder in the army…the power of the army is much higher. With some effort, you will definitely get results.”
Yan Fei’s eyes now contained a trace of disappointment. Today with the death of his ex-wife and Yan Fei’s mother, he was still here for these purposes. Even if the two of them had half-hearted feelings. But now there was not even the basic respect of the dead…Yan Fei could see the point in the man.
He turned around and coldly spit out, “Registry work is pretty good, are we not all serving the people?” Sweeping the street? Their team had just done this sort of mission.
Yan Gexin was left stunned, alone on the balcony.
“Let’s go back first.” Yan Fei felt melancholy as he saw the small baby in Luo Xun’s arms. Just born into this grim reality…
After all, the child was Liu Xiangyu and her lover’s. No matter how worried Luo Xun was, sympathy did not allow for taking children. How old was this baby? The weather would freeze him to death if he stepped foot outside.
They spoke with Liu Xiangyu’s current boyfriend, saying that they would visit tomorrow and discuss when to bury Liu Xiangyu’s ashes. It was not long before Yan Gexin left with a dark expression – he only came to speak with Yan Fei and he no longer had a relationship with his deceased ex-wife. Not to mention the man who put a green hat on him!
That time the person actually dared to coerce him over Liu Xiangyu’s situation. If not for the fact that he had some residual feelings for her, he would have left that woman and the bastard in her belly! As for the man? Haha….
