Chapter 262: Entangled By Dream
“Sis Wuyou gave you a handkerchief?” Mu Xin’s eyes swept over the box before she looked at Mu Gu in surprise.
Mu Gu shook his head, clarifying, “No, it’s mine.”
This answer baffled Mu Xin even more, “Yours? Then how did it end up with Sis Wuyou?”
Knowing Mu Xin literally idolized Song Wuyou at the moment, he tilted his head and flashed a smile at her, “When your Brother Ah Hao was injured and was sent to the hospital, Wuyou was crying tears and dripping snot in front of the operating room. I wiped her tears.”
“Oh,” Mu Xin breathed in relief, then smiled sweetly at her brother, “I was scared, I was thinking you and Sis Wuyou were having some underground movements.”
“Silly girl, is your brother that kind of person?”
“Of course not!” Mu Xin raised her hand, lightly mussing Mu Gu’s hair: “My brother’s a man of righteousness! I also trust Sis Wuyou!”
“Enough, there’s mutton jerky in the dining room.” Mu Gu brushed away Mu Xin’s hand. A big man-like man had his hair mussed by a little girl; no matter how you looked at it, it was funny.
Mu Xin’s cheerful giggle rang out, “Brother, you knew that I’ was coming back, that’s why you deliberately left them for me, right?”
Mu Gu wouldn’t admit it no matter what, urging his sister to go, “Go eat it quick, quickly.”
After Mu Xin left the room, Mu Gu took the handkerchief from the box. With his head down, he stared sullenly at the piece of cloth in his hand….
Heavy drops of rain were hitting the roof tonight. On the horizon, occasional flashes of lightning lit up the dark sky, followed by the loud rumbling of thunder. Rain continued to fall like a torrent, large droplets hitting the ground with an endless splat, sending arrows of tiny water droplets all around—da pa, da pa!
Howling wind struck against the window panes at times, trees swayed and leaves fell.
Outside the window, a flash of lightning streaked across the night sky; a loud boom sounded either from a fallen street lamp or a tree. The entire sky brightened from the lightning, extremely horrifying.
Inside a room, the figure lying on the king-sized bed suddenly bolted up to a sitting position. In the darkness of the night, the man’s eyes were piercingly sharp, like an eagle’s. When the thunder and lightning died down, one could hear the man gasping for air.
Another thunderbolt split across the sky. From the dim flash of the lightning, one could see the man was tensed, clenching his jaw as beads of sweat rolled down his face.
Those piercing eyes were filled with an inexplicable fear.
He had a nightmare – so real, so bloody, and so horrifying!. He, who wasn’t afraid of death, actually dreamed he died from thousands of arrows piercing through his body. Each arrow was like a savage leopard, leaping at him, penetrating his flesh with a muffled blast, coming out the other side of his heart, finally landing on the small hill behind him.
When he saw the face of the person who shot the arrow, he jerked awake, feeling like his head was about to explode, his chest stuffy.
Pa…! When the man finally calmed down, his hand extended to the side, switching on the night lamp. His head turned over, the place beside him was empty.
Gu Yanhao’s brows tightened as his gaze shifted toward the window, towards the endless lightning-lit sky.
Where’s Song Wuyou? Isn’t she supposed to be sleeping here beside him at this hour? He looked at the bathroom, the door was closed but the light was off too, so she can’t be inside there.
Gu Yanhao got off the bed to search for Song Wuyou.
At the same time, heaven was raining down on the ranch as well, thunder and lightning screamed at intervals, taking turns.
Mu Gu sat huddled on the sofa at the end of the bed, hugging his knees. His eyes were unfocused, yet a turbulent abyss spun in the depths of his eyes, like giant waves crashing. After waking up from his dream, bursts of sharp pain filled his chest and he could no longer return to sleep. He switched on the lights, sitting on the sofa while listening to the sound of falling rain, the rumbling thunder…
Tonight, once again he was entangled by a dream. In tonight’s dream, her face was much clearer than previous times. She was dressed in all white, laughing with a flourish as she stood in front of him.
