Upon seeing Chu Ci cry, Lin Yuan’s heart instantly tightened.
From Lin Yuan’s recollection, Chu Ci had never cried more than a few times since childhood. However difficult a problem they encountered, she would always wear a smile while standing by Lin Yuan’s side.
Now, Lin Yuan immediately felt a little numb.
He did not know how to make her feel better so that her tears would stop falling.
Just as he was mulling over this in his head, Chu Ci suddenly threw herself in his arms and said, hiccuping, “Brother, don’t worry. I only cried because I was overjoyed.”
Lin Yuan extended his arms to wrap them around Chu Ci and lightly patted her on the shoulder.
Lin Yuan and Chu Ci were both inept at expressing their innermost emotions.
Hence, the only other time they had both revealed their true emotions like this had occurred during their first year of seeking survival together.
It was when Chu Ci had been so sick that she almost hadn’t made it—such a scene had taken place, but it had never happened again.
As Lin Yuan lightly patted Chu Ci’s shoulder, he sighed in his heart.
Lin Yuan was extremely sensitive to Chu Ci’s moods. She had definitely not been weeping with joy but getting her worry off her chest.
Moreover, Chu Ci had called him ‘Brother’ instead of ‘Lin Yuan’.
Obviously, she had also known the whole story behind his injuries, so she must have been worried sick during this period.
Lin Yuan only came up with something to say to Chu Ci to comfort her after a long time.
Chu Ci asked softly with her face buried in his shoulder, “Brother, do you feel discomfort anywhere on your body?”
As she spoke, Chu Ci raised her head off Lin Yuan’s shoulder, extended her hand, and wiped off a tear from the corner of her eye.
After which, only a smile remained on Chu Ci’s face. Large teardrops would no longer fall from the corners of her eyes.
Upon hearing Chu Ci’s question, Lin Yuan tried to open his mouth to speak, but he found that his throat was dry and rough from having slept for so long.
Before he could utter a single word, he began coughing.
Chu Ci hurried to the jade porcelain tea table beside her and poured Lin Yuan a cup of spirit tea from the teapot.
When he took the cup from Chu Ci’s hands, Lin Yuan smiled sheepishly.
After drinking two mouthfuls of tea and his throat no longer felt dry, Lin Yuan immediately said, “I feel extremely well now! I don’t feel a hint of discomfort!”
When Lin Yuan had been inside the dimensional rift struggling to stop its evolution, he had been the most worried about Chu Ci.
He would never have expected that the first person he would see when he awoke would be his sister, who he had not seen for so many days.
Chu Ci studied the sincere expression on Lin Yuan’s face. It seemed like he really wasn’t experiencing any discomfort.
