Opening the door, Xiao Ying was sitting on the bed with her arms crossed. She stared blankly at the little rabbit plushie in front of her.
She had not eaten for a few days and her face was pale and thin.
The anger in Cheng Yang’s heart suddenly extinguished. He sighed and said, “Ying’er, Zihao died to save you. Are you going to starve to death?”
Xiao Ying’s dull eyes moved as she looked at Cheng Yang and said, “Do you think he just fainted? Doesn’t that happen to him often?”
Cheng Yang couldn’t bear to break her hope, so he could only say vaguely, “Eat something first. I’ll take you to see him later, okay?”
A wisp of bright light appeared in Xiao Ying’s eyes, but it was quickly extinguished as she said, “Will Sister Qiao Na agree?”
Cheng Yang carried her out of the room and said, “She’ll agree.”
Xiao Ying came to the dining table but did not eat. Instead, she grabbed him and said, “Brother, take me there now, okay?”
Cheng Yang stuffed the chopsticks into her hand forcefully and said, “If you don’t eat, don’t even think about seeing him.”
Xiao Ying passively took the spoon from him into her mouth. Cheng Yang couldn’t wait for her to eat, so he directly fed her the spoonful of porridge.
In order to see Qiao Zihao, Xiao Ying was very cooperative. In a short while, she finished a bowl of porridge.
Cheng Yang took her out in silence and went to Qiao Na’s house.
The two of them stood outside Qiao Na’s house, and Xiao Ying nervously shook her hands.
Qiao Na opened the door and was not surprised to see them. She did not know what Cheng Yang had done, but Qiao Na did not reject Xiao Ying’s request and let them in. However, her attitude towards Xiao Ying had already changed dramatically.
Xiao Ying could not blame Qiao Na. She only felt even more guilty.
When she reached Qiao Zihao’s room, she found him lying quietly on the bed.
When Xiao Ying saw him like this, she suddenly felt a trace of hope. Could it be that he really wasn’t dead?
Xiao Ying carefully examined him, but the final results were the same. There was no sign of life. He was already dead, and his body was beginning to show signs of decay. This was completely different from the situation when he had been unconscious for a few months and still seemed to be sleeping.
At this moment, Qiao Na said indifferently, “Today is the day he will be cremated.”
Xiao Ying’s hand trembled and she was speechless. Even the words of apology felt pale and weak.
Cheng Yang picked her up and brought her out of Qiao Na’s house.
The moment she stepped out, she saw the car of the funeral home arriving at the door. They had wrapped up Qiao Zihao’s body and taken him into the car.
Cheng Yang drove slowly after them until they reached the funeral home. Xiao Ying did not enter but remained in the car. Seeing Qiao Na walk out with red eyes, she said, “Let’s go.”
Cheng Yang did not go home. Instead, he took her to a beach and forced her out of the car.
Cheng Yang said, “Ying’er, it’s not your fault.”
Xiao Ying couldn’t help but break down. “Why isn’t it my fault? If I hadn’t insisted on following you, if I hadn’t… he wouldn’t have died.”
Cheng Yang looked at the suffering Xiao Ying and blurted out, “Even without you, he would have died.”
Xiao Ying was stunned. “What do you mean?”
Cheng Yang was silent for a moment before saying, “Don’t you feel different?”
Xiao Ying became even more puzzled. After sensing carefully, she realized that the fake amulet in her body had disappeared. Unlike the amulet that had been dormant and dormant previously, there was really no connection between them.
Cheng Yang didn’t explain much, but Xiao Ying seemed to understand something.
With reddened eyes, she looked at him and said, “Zihao is… is this the amulet?”
Cheng Yang nodded.
