The young soldier was not gossiping; he was just concerned.
“I heard there were several accidents in the city today, and there was also a landslide.
The army sent many people to do the emergency repairs, but fortunately, no one died in that incident.”
Jiang Yao shook the umbrella in her hand.
“I did bring an umbrella.
Dont get a cold from the rain.”
The soldier did not stand in ceremony with Jiang Yao since she carried an umbrella.
He positioned the umbrella on top of his head.
However, within a few seconds, his entire body was soaked.
He did not seem to notice and continued to converse with Jiang Yao.
“Colonel Lu came back more than an hour ago.
He has been gone for two days.
I heard that he hasnt rested for Ovo days,” the soldier said.
“Its good that you are back.
You can take care of Colonel Lu.”
Jiang Yao was relieved to hear that Lu Xingzhi was at home.
It was good that he was at home.
It was better than being outside.
The soldier was a kind person.
He knew that Jiang Yao was pregnant.
There was still a long way to go from the entrance to the family area.
It was late at night, and it was raining.
He was worried about Jiang Yao going back alone.
Therefore, he walked Jiang Yao home.
Then, he left after rejecting Jiang Yaos invitation to have a cup of tea.
Jiang Yao looked at the figure running as fast as a rabbit and smiled helplessly.
After placing the umbrella at the door, Jiang Yao walked into her home.
The house was pitch-black, and it was impossible to tell if anyone was home.
When she turned on the lights in the living room, she saw a dirty person lying on the sofa.
It was Lu Xingzhi.
He had fallen asleep.
The young soldier said that Lu Xingzhi and his group had gone out for two days, and it seemed like they had not rested for Ovo days.
He must have been extremely tired.
Once he got home, he did not even have the strength to take a bath before lying on the sofa to sleep.
Jiang Yao called out softly to the person asleep on the sofa.
His phone was on the coffee table, and it was turned off.
It seemed like the rainwater damaged it; he must not have been able to turn it on.
Jiang Yao wanted to help Lu Xingzhi take off his clothes, but she did not expect her hand to shrink back when she touched Lu Xingzhis face.
He had a fever.
Perhaps that was why he fell asleep on the sofa before taking a shower.
Jiang Yao did not mind him sleepingwhile covered in dirt.
Instead, her heart ached for him.
Being a soldier was hard work.
She only knew so little about his profession.
He must have been sick while he was at work.
“Why do you always make me worry about you” Jiang Yao muttered.
Then, she wiped Lu Xingzhis body and helped him change into clean pajamas.
She also fed him some medicine.
“Xingzhi, wake up.
Take some medicine and go back to the room to sleep.”
“Dont disturb me.
Let me sleep.” Lu Xingzhi opened his eyes in a daze for a second, then immediately closed them again.
His eyelids were so heavy that it was as if they were filled with lead..
