Chapter 5

After a round of hard work, Gu Qing Yin had finally pulled Zhong Shu Jin from the gate of hell.

Gu Qing Yin had originally thought that when Zhong Shu Jin woke up, she could start from Zhong Shu Jin and followed this route to find out where the poison came from and also her master’s location.

However, when she found that piece of white jade from Zhong Shu Jin, her heart was not that relaxed anymore.

She glanced at Zhong Shu Jin who was sleeping peacefully on the bed and went to the study room next door silently.

Gu QingYin stood in front of the desk and was staring dazedly at the white jade that was taken from Zhong Shu Jin.

That was a piece of white jade, crystal clear, bright and there was a character “Jin” engraved on it. The penmanship was puerile seemingly to be made by a child.

Originally, such a piece of white jade would not cause her to be absent-minded for so long.

But when she took out an identical piece of white jade from the drawer in the bookshelf, her heart could no longer calm down.

No, perhaps, this could not be said to be the exact same jade.

She put the 2 pieces of jade together, and as expected, these 2 white jades could be put together seamlessly.

Therefore, these 2 pieces of white jade were originally the same piece of jade!

This white jade was divided into 2. The black-robe beauty held a piece and she held one.

The only difference was that the white jade belonging to the black-robed beauty was engraved with the character ‘Jin” while her piece was not engraved with anything.

What was the reason that she and the beauty each hold half a piece of the white jade?

Gu Qing Yin could not help but think about a month before her master ‘died’. At that time, she inadvertently saw her master staring dazedly at the white jade which had been with her since young. Hence, she asked about her history casually.

However, her master equivocally refused to answer.

At that time, her master’s evasive attitude was obvious in the way that he does not want her to know about her history.

And her history has got to do with that piece of jade.

Unfortunately, not long after that, her master had sadly ‘died’ and naturally, she does not have the chance to inquire anymore.

Now that she has seen the same piece of jade, Gu Qing Yin knew that it might not only be her master that knew about her history.

The black-robe beauty that she had saved today, might have something to do with her history.

Thinking that the mysterious history that had perplexed her for the past 17years was about to finally coming to light, Gu QingYin felt excited.

She placed the 2 pieces of white jade into the drawer and made up her mind secretly to heal the black-robed beauty!

En, she must do her utmost best to heal her and not just to the extent whereby she only had a breath left!

Only by starting from her then she could ask her the source of the white jade and at the same time asked her about the source of the wisteria entwine in her body.

Using this chance to figure out her history and the whereabouts of her master!

Thinking about it this way, she paid even more attention to healing Zhong Shu Jin.

For the past 5days, Gu Qing Yin had rejected the villagers who came to her doorsteps to nagged at her. And regardless of former enmity, she stayed by her side, watch over, and healed her with utmost care.

Under her care, the black-robed beauty finally woke up.

“Who are you?”

Facing that pair of perplexed eyes, Gu Qing Yin smiled gently, trying to make herself appeared more kind.

“I am your saviour.”

En. First occupying the position of a ‘saviour’, so, it would be easier to question her later.

“Benefactor?” Zhong ShuJin pounded her head feeling even more confused: “Then, who am I?”

救命恩人 Jiu Min En Ren: Literal translation is ‘Save life benefactor’ aka saviour. When Zhong ShuJin repeated she only said ‘恩人’ which means benefactor

Wha……What!?

As if being struck by lightning, Gu QingYin was shocked.

“YouYouYou…. could it be that you have forgotten?”

Zhong Shu Jin did not answer but pressed on her swollen head in pain. Seeing that Zhong Shu Jin was about to pound on her head again, Gu Qing Yin quickly pulled her hand down, stopping her and said: “Don’t pound anymore, let me see!”

After holding Zhong Shu Jin down, Gu Qing Yin quickly placed her fingers on her wrist to feel her pulse.

It makes no sense, her pulse felt normal!

Gu Qing Yin had taken care of Zhong Shu Jin for so many days, so naturally she knew the parts where Zhong Shu Jin was and was not injured. Apart from the wound on her chest and the wisteria entwine that were both fatal, there were no other injuries that were much more serious than those!

Although this scoundrel fell from the cliff, she crashed onto her! She was crushed so badly to the extent that she was about to have internal injury, so she should be the one who had suffered the most from the fall.

Gu Qing Yin could not understand no matter how much she thought about it. So how did this scoundrel lose her memory for no reason?

Could it be that she had not detoxified poisons for others for too long that she was out of practice?

Lost in a deep thought, Gu Qing Yin suddenly remembered something.

It seems that when she pushed this scoundrel aside, she had caused this scoundrel to hit her head, right?

Gu Qing Yin forced down the guilty conscious and pretended to be calm and composed as she said: “You…lower your head and show it to me.”

But Zhong Shu Jin was still frowning and immersed in her own thoughts, so she did not hear Gu Qing Yin’s words.

She has no choice but to step forward and pressed down her head and part her hairs to check.

“Hiss….” 

Sure enough, the back of Zhong Shu Jin’s head was already swollen.

Gu Qing Yin let go of Zhong ShuJin and sighed softly: “I know now. It is probably the injury on your head that caused you to forget the past.”

Zhong Shu Jin raised her head and looked at Gu Qing Yin blankly.

Knowing that saying too much, Zhong Shu Jin would not understand it so Gu Qing Yin did not say much anymore. She caressed Zhong Shu Jin’s head and softened her voice: “You must be hungry, I will make something for you first, behave and wait here for me!”

After saying that, and without waiting for Zhong Shu Jin to reply, Gu Qing Yin ran to the kitchen.

Forget it, since she has forgotten about it, she must let it go. Memory loss due to the blow to the head should be temporary. So, she does not believe that she would not be able to wait till the day Zhong Shu Jin recovered her memory.

It would not be too late to ask about those things by then!

The current plan was to heal this person’s injury!

After a long time, Gu Qing Yin brought the medicinal congee that she had personally simmered.

While Zhong Shu Jin was leaning against the bedhead, hanging her head slightly.

Taking a closer look, Gu Qing Yin realized that her head was falling forward little bit every now and then.

This was? Sleepy?

Gu Qing Yin placed the medicinal congee on the table and went over and patted on Zhong Shu Jin’s shoulder. Seeing that person shook abruptly, she could not help but laughed.

“Sleepy? Then why don’t you lie down and have a good sleep?”

Zhong Shu Jin rubbed her half-opened eyes and replied in a daze: “Wait…. Waiting for you.”

Gu Qing Yin was taken aback, that was mentioned thoughtlessly….

“You this person….” Really silly. Taking it so seriously over such little things.

Gu Qing Yin swallowed the 2nd-half of the sentence quietly then changed it to: “Forget it, you are already awake so eat something before sleeping.”

Gu Qing Yin held the congee and sat beside Zhong Shu Jin and handed the spoon in the bowl to Zhong Shu Jin.

Now she does not have to be like a mother and feed this scoundrel, right?

However, before Gu Qing Yin gets to be happy about it, she saw that Zhong Shu Jin staring at the spoon blankly.

Could it be that……she does not know how to use it……

Okay, as expected, one should not be happy too early….

Resignedly, Gu Qing Yin retrieved the spoon and scooped a spoonful of congee, blew it, and bring it to the side of Zhong Shu Jin’s mouth.

“You ah, never mind if you have amnesia, how can you forget even the most basic things….?”

Zhong Shu Jin looked at Gu Qing Yin and blinked as she held her hand and drank the spoonful of congee lovably. After swallowing it, she raised her head and smiled at Gu Qing Yin.

This was the first time Zhong Shu Jin smiled at Gu Qing Yin.

Gu Qing Yin was stunned. What does that slightly proud smile mean?

Zhong Shu Jin grabbed the spoon from Gu Qing Yin, scooping a spoonful of congee and drank it, proving that she could do it, she raised her head and looked at Gu Qing Yin with a face full of pride.

“I know how to do it!”

Maybe because Zhong Shu Jin uses too much force to moved, this movement had tugged on her wound.

The good-looking brow has furrowed together.

Seeing Zhong Shu Jin’s expression that had changed in an instant, Gu Qing Yin finds it a little funny. She shook her head helplessly as she quickly supported her to lean back properly, so she would not anyhow move.

Forget it, it was better to let this injury healed first.

Gu Qing Yin scooped another spoonful and fed it to the side of Zhong Shu Jin’s mouth.

Ai, it does not seem to be an easy task to learn about her own history from this silly girl!

Fortunately, the silly girl who was eating quietly was still quite lovable.

After emptying the bowl, Gu Qing Yin was about to take the bowl back and wash it, when she realized that Zhong Shu Jin was grasping her sleeves and looking at the bowl in her hand eagerly.

In that instant, Gu Qing Yin understood.

“Still want to eat?”

Zhong Shu Jin nodded vigorously: “Very hungry…”

It was no wonder Zhong Shu Jin still wants to eat. After all, she had been unconscious for 5 days and during that period, Gu Qing Yin had only fed her with rice water as food. The rest of the time, she never had the chance to eat anything.

Gu Qing Yin smiled and said: “Okay, I will go and get another serving. Don’t fall asleep.”

Fortunately, she had simmered a lot and there was still plenty left in the pot.

After taking the medicinal congee back, Gu Qing Yin was surprised to find out that the girl was able to drink the congee by herself.

The wound was not tugged too.

Gu Qing Yin was gaping from the surprised. This girl has gotten better pretty fast!

She was still holding the porcelain bowl in her hand as she looked at Zhong Shu Jin blankly.

It did not take long for her to be startled from the warmth on the corner of her mouth and only then did it brought her back to her senses.

Lowering her eyes slightly, Gu Qing Yin discovered that the silly girl in front of her had already learned from her initial behaviour and scooped a spoonful of congee and fed it to the side of her mouth.

“Do you want to eat too?”

Hearing Zhong Shu Jin’s question, Gu Qing Yin was taken aback but did not open her mouth.

Unexpectedly, the scoundrel who did not receive a reply had actually pushed the spoon and poke it forcefully onto Gu Qing Yin’s mouth and with a stern face, she said: “Eat!”

This scene seems a bit weird!”

With no choice, Gu Qing Yin could only open her mouth in embarrassment as she was fed a spoonful of congee forcefully by the silly girl.

This way, Zhong Shu Jin raised the corner of her lips with satisfaction.

The smile made Gu Qing Yin stared at it in a daze.

En, this girl does look pretty when she smiles.

The hot congee swallowed down into the stomach, brought a warm feeling as it flowed to the limbs. At the same time, an inexplicable heat surged upwards, causing Gu Qing Yin’s cheeks to heat-up.

Since she could starts remembering things, she had never had the experience of being fed.

When she was young, her master had taught her to be independent.

Therefore, her master had never done similar things like feeding her.

Unexpectedly, now that she had all grown up, she would be fed by an idiot who had lost her memory.

If it were just being fed, that was fine….

Gu Qing Yin watches as the silly girl continued drinking the congee with the spoon that the 2 had shared, her expression was a little strange.

This was the first time that she had shared a spoon with someone……
