She knocked on the door a few more times, but there was still no response.
The force of her knocks increased and attracted Ye Li and Xue Sheng’s attention. The two of them walked out of their room and were stunned when they saw Xue Xi. “What’s wrong?”
Xue Xi pointed at the room. “She’s not opening the door.”
Xue Sheng hurriedly turned to look at Ye Li. “The spare key.”
Ye Li walked toward the study room. “I’ll go get it. Xixi, don’t panic!”
She ran to the study room and returned with the spare key. She pa.s.sed it to Xue Sheng, who had Ye Li and Xue Xi hide behind him before opening the door.
The room was dark and only the window was open. The wind blew at the curtains and the moonlight shone on the roadside. There was the sound of water coming from the bathroom. Through the frosted gla.s.s, there was a faint yellow light.
Xue Sheng hurriedly stopped when he heard this.
Xue Xi wanted to move forward, but Ye Li grabbed her hand and walked in front of her. When she walked over, she called out softly and pushed open the bathroom door.
Ye Li exclaimed, “Xiao Shuang?”
Xue Xi hurriedly rushed over and saw Qin Shuang lying on the ground, in a dead faint.
After calling 120, the family rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night.
After the examination, the doctor sighed. “She was in shock. Fortunately, you found her in time or her life would have been in danger.”
Ye Li asked, “Why was she in shock?”
The doctor shook his head. “We don’t know yet. We’ve done all kinds of checks on her and there are no problems with her body. Has the patient been having any psychological problems recently?”
Xue Xi recalled the water in the bathroom and suddenly realized something. She said, “Little Chatterbox is afraid of water.”
Afraid of water…
The doctor did not understand what she meant, but Ye Li and Xue Sheng instantly understood. The two of them felt bitter.
The Qin family.
When Qin Lu was doing her homework, she was a little distracted. As she did the questions, she used her other hand to support her cheek that was slapped.
After that incident, Mrs. Qin had realized that she had misunderstood her and applied ice on her face.
Before her mother went out just now, she’d said that she would bring her a gla.s.s of warm milk, but why was her mother not here yet?
She waited for another two minutes and heard footsteps coming from outside.
Qin Lu opened the door and walked out. She saw Mrs. Qin and Mr. Qin walking downstairs in a panic.
Qin Lu asked, “Dad, Mom, where are you going?”
Mrs. Qin shouted, “Xiao Shuang fainted. We’re going to see her!”
When the two of them left, Qin Lu’s face darkened. She went downstairs and saw a gla.s.s of milk on the table. However, the temperature was still cold. Her mother did not get the chance to warm it.
A servant came down and asked, “Miss, should I go warm your milk?”
Qin Lu’s face tensed up. “No need.”
When the servant went upstairs, Qin Lu carried the milk into the kitchen and poured it into the sink. She gripped the gla.s.s bottle and stared at it. “So, you didn’t heat up the milk for me because you’re going to visit Qin Shuang at the hospital?”
She walked out of the kitchen angrily and went upstairs. Her ferocious look frightened the servant.
Qin Lu did not sleep well that night.
She had a nightmare.

In her dream, she seemed to have returned to her childhood. Both she and Qin Shuang had fallen. Both of them extended their hands at the same time, wanting their mother to carry them, but Mrs. Qin walked toward Qin Shuang.
The two of them lay on Xue Xi’s huge bed. Qin Shuang stared at the ceiling. She initially thought that she might not be able to fall asleep, but when she heard Xue Xi’s breathing and smelled the light scent of the shower gel, Qin Shuang actually fell asleep unknowingly.
When she woke up the next day, she was in great spirits. Not wanting to stay at home alone, she decided to go to school with Xue Xi.
Ye Li and Xue Sheng were hesitant. After all, Qin Shuang’s mental state was still very unstable.
In the end, Song Wenman said, “If Xixi’s at school, she wouldn’t feel at ease at home. Let them go together! Young lady, remember this. No matter what happens, you must cherish yourself.”
Qin Shuang nodded. “Don’t worry, I won’t do anything silly!”
She and Xue Xi left the house together and took a cab to the school.
No one at school knew much about what happened to Qin Shuang, but they were curious. “Qin Shuang, didn’t you transfer schools? Why are you back?”
Qin Shuang acted like she did in the past and retorted, “Of all the problems in the world, why are you concerning yourself with mine?”
The other party: “…”
However, after this incident, Qin Shuang seemed to have finally realized something and was listening attentively in cla.s.s.
During cla.s.s, she wanted to go to the washroom. Seeing that Xue Xi was reading seriously, she did not call her.
When she reached the washroom, she b.u.mped into Qin Lu.
Qin Lu had originally not intended to go out, but when she saw Qin Shuang walking past the cla.s.sroom’s entrance, she remembered that her parents were distracted this morning. Hence, she picked up her cup and went out to fetch water.
Coincidentally, the two met when Qin Shuang returned.
Qin Lu shook the water in the cup and pa.s.sed it to her. “Xiao Shuang, do you want some water?”
Qin Shuang felt faint the moment she saw the water and immediately felt nauseous.
She shook her head and was about to return to the cla.s.sroom when Qin Lu stopped her. “Dad and Mom said that something happened to you last night and asked me to take care of you. Drink some water, this cup is for you…”
Qin Shuang felt that suffocating feeling again.
Just as she was about to lose her temper, an angry voice sounded, “Qin Lu, what are you doing?!”
