Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Su Xiaolu took out another silver needle and inserted it into Hu Daniu’s temples on both sides. Similarly, only its tail was left outside. The silver needle was also gradually bleeding.
Hu’s eyelids began to flutter. His lips began to tremble, and his teeth made a lot of sounds from the friction.
“Daniu, Daniu, open your eyes and look at me.”
Su Xiaozhi was by the bed, holding Hu Daniu’s hand tightly as she spoke.
Hu Shuangshuang, Hu Changshou, and Hu Changyang surrounded the bed and shouted, “Father, wake up!”
Hearing the family’s calls, Hu Daniu struggled even more.
Madam Cao opened her eyes and walked toward the bed. Madam Zhao hurriedly went forward to support her.
Madam Cao saw that Hu Daniu had many silver needles inserted into his body. Madam Cao felt sad. She walked to the bed and squatted down. She reached out and retracted her hand. Her voice was hoarse. “My son, wake up quickly. Wake up and see us. My son, my son… Mother misses you.”
Madam Cao trembled as she called out to Hu Daniu.
Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang stood on one side. Madam Zhao couldn’t help but be moved to tears.
Su Sanlang sighed and reached out to hold Madam Zhao.
They also silently encouraged Hu Daniu.
Su Xiaolu saw that Hu Daniu’s expression was distorted from the struggle, but he still did not wake up. With a serious expression, she took out a needle and inserted it into Hu Daniu’s glabella again.
Where the needle entered, more blood flowed.
Su Xiaolu clenched her fists and knocked on Hu Daniu’s chest. She said calmly, “Hu Daniu, open your eyes on the count of three.”
She had forcefully cleared all the blocked meridians in Hu Daniu’s brain. Hu Daniu would wake up.
It was just very difficult.
“One, two, three—open your eyes!”
Su Xiaolu shouted sternly. As soon as she finished speaking,
Hu Daniu finally opened his eyes. He tried to open his mouth with difficulty, but it was as if his mouth was not under his control. It just trembled and could not open, let alone speak.
His eyes darted around and finally landed on Su Xiaolu, silently begging her to help him.
When Hu Daniu woke up, Su Xiaozhi was also anxious.
Su Xiaolu unhurriedly took out her silver needles and inserted them on both sides of Hu Daniu’s nose.
Hu Daniu looked at Su Xiaolu and could finally open and close his mouth. He said with difficulty, “Thank you… Xiaolu.”
He could finally speak.
Hu Daniu knew that he did not have much time left. He shifted his gaze from Su Xiaolu to Su Xiaozhi, Madam Cao, and the three children.
Seeing that Hu Daniu had woken up, the entire family cried.
Su Xiaolu grabbed Hu Daniu’s hand and took his pulse. Then, she put it down and said to Su Xiaozhi, “Aunt, Uncle has four hours.”
After Hu Daniu woke up, he could last for four hours. This was enough time for him to settle his funeral matters.
Knowing that Hu Daniu only had four hours left, the children started crying.
Hu Niu wanted to hug them, but he was so weak that his limbs wouldn’t listen to him. He couldn’t lift them.
He could only look at the children with heartache and say gently, “Shuangshuang, Shou, Yang, be good. Don’t cry. You have to listen to mother, understand?”
Hu Shuangshuang nodded as she wiped her tears.
Hu Changsheng also wiped his tears. He pursed his lips, sniffed, and nodded while holding back his tears.
The youngest Hu Changyang couldn’t help but hug Hu Changshou’s waist and cry softly.
Su Xiaozhi’s tears kept falling and she kept wiping them away. Her heart was about to break.
Madam Cao could not cry, and her face was filled with grief.
Hu Daniu knew that he did not have much time left. He looked at Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao and apologized. “Third Brother, Third Sister-in-law, I’m sorry. I failed to let Xiaozhi lead a good life. I’ve let you down.”
Hu Daniu still remembered that when he arranged the marriage with Su Xiaozhi back then, Madam Wang and Old Master Su had originally decided to marry Su Xiaozhi to a family with good conditions.
It was Su Sanlang who spoke for him, saying he believed in his diligence.
For more than ten years, he had always been grateful for Su Sanlang’s trust. However, although he was diligent, in the end, he did not let Su Xiaozhi have a good life and even made her suffer so much now.
Hu Daniu felt very guilty.
Su Sanlang quickly said, “Brother-in-law, don’t say that. You didn’t let me down. You’re a good person. That proves that I was right about you. You’re worthy of Xiaozhi’s trust for the rest of her life.”
“Brother-in-law, don’t worry. I’ll take care of the children and Xiaozhi in the future and not let them be bullied.”
Su Sanlang looked at Hu Daniu firmly and said. Su Xiaozhi was his sister. She was a good sister. Logically speaking, he could not ignore her when she was in trouble.
Hu Daniu felt guilty, but there was nothing he could do.
Madam Zhao also said, “Brother-in-law, don’t worry. We will take care of Xiaozhi, Changshou and Changyang.”
Of course, Madam Zhao supported Su Sanlang.
She also believed in Su Xiaozhi’s character. She was worthy of their help.
There were tears in Hu Daniu’s eyes. He choked and said, “Thank you all. There’s no way to repay your kindness in this life. In the next life, I’m willing to do anything for you.”
His lifelong happiness had been because of Su Sanlang’s trust. He was grateful to Su Sanlang, but he was truly incompetent. He had never repaid Su Sanlang in this life.
On his deathbed, he still had to ask Su Sanlang to help take care of his family.
In my next life. In my next life, I’ll do anything to repay you.?He thought.
“Mother, I’m sorry.”
Hu Daniu looked at Madam Cao, tears rolling down his face.
He knew how much grief he would bring to her before he died, but he was already powerless to reverse the situation. All his words turned into an apology.
I’m sorry for leaving first, mother.?He thought.
Madam Cao had cried her eyes out for him. His family had become poor because of him. He felt guilty.
Madam Cao’s eyes were filled with sorrow as she shook her head repeatedly. “No, no. You’re my good son.”
Madam Cao wailed in pain and fainted.
Hu Daniu’s heart ached when he saw this. She was sending her own son off. How could she bear such pain?
Madam Cao was unconscious. Su Xiaolu went to see her, but she was too sad. Now that she was in so much pain, it was good for her to take her time.
Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang sent Madam Cao back to her room.
Su Xiaolu also went out.
This last moment should be left to their family.
When Su Xiaolu came out, Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao looked sad. Madam Zhao asked softly, ” Simei, is there really no other way?”
Su Xiaolu shook her head silently. Hu Daniu’s body had already weakened and there was nothing she could do.
It was like a wooden barrel full of holes. No amount of water could fill it.
Su Sanlang sighed.
Madam Zhao comforted him and said, “Sanlang, let’s help Xiaozhi more when the time comes. She will get through it and her days will get better.”
With their help, Su Xiaozhi could also carry this family. When this hurdle was over, it would be easier.
