Chapter 14: My Heart Beats For You (V)
Shang Ke didn’t expect that he wouldn’t have any issues even after playing so many extreme sports, but that a simple push from Jiang Donglin would cause his head to hit the wall. At least he did not remain unconscious for too long, and he realized his situation in the first few moments after waking up. His condition’s original two years of steadiness had changed, and if he doesn’t undergo surgery, his condition will quickly worsen.
Shang Ke was sent to a single person sickroom. Because Jiang Donglin, Jian Chenfeng, and Xu Qing were all around, he decided to continue his beauty sleep.
Jiang Donglin held his phone and sat at Jiang Yumo’s bedside in a daze, unsure of what to say.
Jian Chenfeng looked at Jiang Yumo, laying on the bed. The current him had lost some of his usual energy, and he was a bit quieter. Half of his head was sunk into the soft pillow and a few strands of hair were covering his eyes, so he looked like he was sleeping very peacefully.
“Doctor Xu, you said that Jiang Yumo had known of his condition a couple months ago?” Jian Chenfeng suddenly asked.
“Yes.” Xu Qing nodded.
Jian Chenfeng narrowed his eyes, his expression gloomy.
Jiang Donglin suddenly raised his head and asked, “Since you knew, why didn’t you inform us?” If he knew, how could he have hurt Yumo?
Xu Qing gestured with his mouth towards the hospital bed. “Because your younger brother had me help him keep it a secret.”
“What?” Jiang Donglin turned his head to look at Shang Ke, a perplexed expression passing through his eyes as he muttered, “Such a large matter, why did he hide it?”
“That, I don’t know.” Xu Qing turned around and walked out, telling them, “You guys better arrange an operation for him as soon as possible. The longer this drags out, the more dangerous it will be.”
“Wait, I still have some more questions to ask,” Jiang Donglin said as he followed Xu Qing out of the room.
Now, the only ones remaining in the room were Jian Chenfeng and Shang Ke, who was doing his best to sleep.
Jian Chenfeng walked to his side and reached out to brush aside Shang Ke’s hair. At this moment, Shang Ke’s eyelashes slightly trembled, and slowly, his eyes opened. He gave Jian Chenfeng a lazy smile. In that split second, Jian Chenfeng felt like the world before him had brightened, and his gloomy mood had vanished like smoke.
“Jian Chenfeng, is Jian Xin alright?” was the first thing Shang Ke asked.
Jian Chenfeng’s face dimmed and he spoke, rather annoyed, “She’s fine. You should worry about yourself first.”
“What’s wrong with me?” Shang Ke sat up and rubbed the back of his head.
“Jiang Yumo, can you tell me why, even after knowing that you have a brain tumor, you still continued to participate in those dangerous extreme sports?” Jian Chenfeng stared fixedly at him, his voice carrying a greatly repressed anger.
Shang Ke said in a rational tone, “I cannot give up what I like just because I am ill.”
“Then, why did you have to hide your condition?”
“Because if my family knew, then they would not allow me to continue participating in sports.” Shang Ke gave him a “did you need to ask” expression.
“Very good,” Jian Chenfeng gritted his teeth and spit out. “It looks like you understand it quite well. From today on, you indeed cannot participate in any intense sports.”
“So bad (English)!” Shang Ke revealed a reluctant expression.
Jian Chenfeng remained unmoved as he stayed silent for a long time, before suddenly asked, “Jiang Yumo, are you thinking of dying?”
He asked the question very seriously, without any hint of a joke. After Jiang Yumo found out his situation, not only did he not tell his family, but he also did not accept treatment. Instead, as if he didn’t want to live, he started to participate in every kind of dangerous extreme sport. Wasn’t he clearly courting death?
Jian Chenfeng had confidence in his observation skills, but even after interacting with Jiang Yumo for so long, he completely did not notice any pessimistic signs from him. Jiang Yumo’s life was free of worry and full of love. If he was being bullied, he had his family to protect him. With such a good life, what could make him depressed?
“I am living so well. Why would I think of dying?” Shang Ke unconcernedly answered. “You’re overthinking things.”
“Is that so?” Jian Chenfeng expressionlessly said, “Then, for this period of time, you should obediently stay here until the specialist develops an appropriate operation plan for you.”
“My parents haven’t even said anything yet!” Shang Ke glared at him.
“Chenfeng’s desire is our desire.” Jiang Yumo’s parents and Jiang Donglin walked into the room together. Father Jian strictly said, “You are certainly ready to spread your wings, even daring to hide this kind of matter!”
Mother Jiang pulled Shang Ke’s hand and asked concernedly, “Yumo, how are you? Is there anywhere you don’t feel well…”
When Jian Chenfeng saw that Jiang Yumo’s family had all arrived, he timely said his goodbye. Before he left, he glanced again at Shang Ke comforting his parents, his gaze dimming. So long as he thought about how this man would one day disappear, he would feel like he couldn’t breathe. He had never felt this kind of fear before. He knew that he was done for. He couldn’t lie to himself anymore that the intense throb in his heart was just a misconception…
Two days later, Shang Ke was welcomed into Jian Chenfeng’s home.
That’s right, Jian Chenfeng’s home. He didn’t know just how Jian Chenfeng had persuade his parents to overturn all responsibility for his care completely to him. Shang Ke had not even been given the chance to oppose before he was packaged and wrapped by his parents and sent over.
“From today on, you will go to work with me in the morning, and then in the evening, you will sleep with me (in different rooms?). If you want to exercise, you will have to obtain my permission,” Jian Chenfeng set down all the rules before him.
“Jian Chenfeng, just what did you say to my parents? How could they agree to let me live in your house?” Shang Ke still felt that it was too unimaginable.
Jian Chenfeng shot him a glance, saying, “I just told them that my younger sister could help you turn over a new leaf.”
You actually used your own younger sister? Plus, what “help you turn over a new leaf”? Just where was he evil?
However, it was fine. His purpose in worsening his condition had already been reached, and as long as the operation isn’t successful, then he can dedicate himself to sacrificing his life. What was difficult now was figuring out how to delay his operation. According to the storyline, Jian Xin’s operation would be in a year. However, before she could have it, she had been dragged along by Jiang Yumo to “die together in the name of love.” Shang Ke wasn’t quite sure if the heart transplant would have gone well if the operation happened earlier.
“If I can see Jian Xin often, then I will reluctantly live here.” Shang Ke held a long pillow and laid on the sofa.
When he heard the other mention Jian Xin, Jian Chenfeng immediately felt unwell.
“Jiang Yumo, the one Xin’er likes is your older brother.” He had to quickly make this guy see reality.
“That’s fine,” Shang Ke confidently said. “I will let Jian Xin know that I love her more than older brother.”
“Jiang Yumo, just which part of my younger sister do you find attractive?” Jian Chenfeng’s tone was very dark.
Can you not ask such a brain-frying question? How should he know which part of Jian Xin attracts Jiang Yumo?
Shang Ke racked his brain over the question before finally thinking of an answer, “It’s just a kind of feeling, you wouldn’t understand it.”
“……” Jian Chenfeng really had an urge to throttle him. What “you wouldn’t understand it?” Does Jiang Yumo know just how fucking much he does understand it?
Jian Chenfeng didn’t feel like talking to him anymore for the time being. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to hold back his urge to just do him in.
Following that, Shang Ke started to live leisurely. At work, he could take it easy and hang around. After work, he could research good food, when he was free, he could play an instrument, take a walk… As long as he ignored the man that was inseparable from him like his conjoined twin, his life was still quite wonderful.
As the operation day gradually came closer, he started to think about the next step of his plan.
However, before he had even planned anything, problems began to emerge with Jian Xin’s condition. Because Jiang Donglin thought that he was not as worthy as his brother, he continued to keep his distance from Jian Xin and did not establish a relationship with her. With Jian Xin so anxious, her disease had many onsets and her condition became increasingly worse.
After seeing such a scene, Jiang Donglin finally overcame the obstructions in his heart and sincerely accepted Jian Xin. He accompanied her in the hospital everyday and treated her with the utmost care, but even so, her situation was still not optimistic.
“When should we have the operation?” Jian Chenfeng asked Jian Xin’s doctor.
The doctor replied, “Miss Jian’s disease is onsetting more and more frequently. If we could, it would be best to do so within half a year.”
“Have you found a suitable heart?”
“I was just about to tell you that.” The doctor flipped through his information and told him, “Not too long ago, a young man came to do a matching. After the matching was successful, he signed an organ donor agreement, donating his heart to Miss Jian.”
“That person came to do a matching himself? Did he get some kind of incurable disease?”
“He said that he was suffering from a brain tumor, and had at most two years to live. At that time, I thought he was the best choice for a donor. Two years later would be approximately the time that Miss Jian was going to have her operation. We just didn’t expect Miss Jian’s condition to worsen, so the operation will need to be done earlier.” The doctor did not notice Jian Chenfeng’s expression changing as he continued, “I will go contact that person later and see how his condition is. If his condition isn’t showing any sign of worsening, then we can only find another donor.”
“He had a brain tumor?” Jian Chenfeng forcefully pressed down his churning emotions as he said, “Give me his information.”
“Alright.” The doctor handed him the information. Because this hospital was the Jian Family’s, Jian Chenfeng could look up any patient’s information, at any time.
When Jian Chenfeng received the information, he was shocked. The first thing he saw was the name column, with three characters reading “Jiang Yumo.”
In the next second, he threw down the information and headed for his house like a mad man.
The door was slammed open with a bang, and Jian Chenfeng was greeted by the sight of Jiang Yumo doing a handstand! Doing a handstand during this period of time!
Jian Chenfeng’s appearance clearly frightened Jiang Yumo, and his body tilted, almost falling. Jian Chenfeng quickly rushed over and held him up, picking him up horizontally and placing him on the sofa.
Jian Chenfeng sat by the small side table, his expression dark as he stared at the other man.
Shang Ke felt that Jian Chenfeng’s mood was a bit off, and asked, “Did something happen over on Jian Xin’s side? I heard from older brother that her condition worsened, is it urgent? When is she having her operation?”
“Jian Xin, Jian Xin. Jiang Yumo, do you not have any other people in your heart besides Jian Xin?” Jian Chenfeng dully roared.
Shang Ke looked at him in confusion. Why was he so angry?
Jian Chenfeng looked at his feigned tranquil expression and became angrier. “Jiang Yumo, for Jian Xin, you don’t even want your life anymore?” He knew that Jiang Yumo liked Jian Xin, but he never thought that his love ran so deeply.
“What did you say?”
“Why did you sign the organ donor agreement?” Jian Chenfeng intensely questioned him.
Shang Ke was first stunned, but immediately smiled as he replied, “I am suffering from a brain tumor, so no matter how high the success rate of the operation is, there is still risk involved. If something happens to me during the operation, then at least I can give Jian Xin a chance to recover and live.”
“Don’t take me as a fool!” Jian Chenfeng was unable to restrain his anger anymore as he said, “When you found out about your brain tumor, your situation wasn’t serious, and you could have immediately underwent the operation. However, not only did you hide your condition, but you also delayed your operation, and even deliberately placed yourself in danger. Jiang Yumo, you fucker, you planned to use your life in exchange for Jian Xin’s all along!”
Jian Chenfeng did not know what he had felt when he saw the organ donor agreement. There was not only anger, but he also felt an intense jealousy! He was jealous of his younger sister, since she could so easily obtain the love he wanted, but couldn’t get.
Shang Ke was bit frightened by the other man’s appearance. He did not know why Jian Chenfeng was so angry. According to reason, even if he knew that he was using his life in exchange for his younger sister’s life, Jian Chenfeng should either express shock, or be moved by his “selflessness.” This kind of craziness was truly beyond his expectations.
“Jiang Yumo, my sister’s life doesn’t need yours in exchange!” Jian Chenfeng stared at him, speaking emphatically, “Because, your life is mine!”
He did not wait for Shang Ke to react after he spoke before overwhelming the other. Pressing the body below him into the sofa, Jian Chenfeng held the back of his head and deeply kissed him.
Shang Ke’s eyes widened as he thought, this development is a bit wrong!
