After Transmigrating, The Fat Wife Made A Comeback! - Chapter 1022
1022 Something Happened
Xia He looked up and saw that the lights in Qiao Mei’s bedroom were still switched on. She got out of bed and put on a padded cotton jacket. Without stopping to put on her socks, she simply put on her slippers and stumbled out, almost falling over on her way.
“Qiao Mei, are you asleep yet?” Xia He stood at the door and asked in a cautious manner.
“No, I’m not. Come in quickly. Why are you panting? Did you get chased by a dog?” Qiao Mei sat by the bed and asked Xia He, who stood at the door and looked in a sorry state.
“I… I just… I…” Xia He stammered, unable to speak properly. In the end, she mustered her courage and said to Qiao Mei, “Can I sleep over in your room?”
From when she was young, she did not allow Xu Lan to sleep with her for even one night. She had always slept alone. After she got married, she and Kong Lu did not spend a lot of time together. In a sense, she had always been alone.
She did not expect herself to be asking to sleep over in Qiao Mei’s room when she was already in her 30s. Just thinking about what she was doing made her feel embarrassed!
“Sure! But why do you suddenly want to sleep over today? In the past, when I begged you to sleep in my room, you always looked so disgusted!” Qiao Mei said laughingly.
Xia He sighed deeply and said, “I don’t know what’s going on, but my left eyelid keeps twitching today. My heart doesn’t feel very comfortable either and I feel like I can’t breathe.”
Xia He still made it a habit to practice her dance every day. Although her physical health was not as good as Xia Zhe and people like him, her fitness level was definitely much better than that of ordinary people. Why would she suddenly feel uncomfortable?
Just as Qiao Mei was deep in thought, a strong wind suddenly started blowing outside the house as torrential rain poured down. Streaks of silver-white lightning seemed to want to tear the night sky apart, followed by deafening thunder.
This was the first time they had seen such bad weather. Furthermore, it was winter now when storms were rare. Given such strange weather, something major must have happened. The discomfort that Xia He felt became magnified again and she kept feeling that something had gone missing, which made her feel very upset. The feeling of discomfort she felt earlier was not so serious, but now, it was so bad that she could not even sit still.
“No, Qiao Mei, I still don’t feel well. Do you think something has happened at home?” Xia He said with a frown.
“Don’t let your imagination run wild. Sit down and take a rest first. I’ll make you a pot of tea.” Qiao Mei quietly put two drops of 100-year-old ginseng juice into the tea, thinking that Xia He would feel much better after drinking it.
As Qiao Mei held on to the teapot, her hands trembled slightly. She was also afraid that something had happened at home, but she could not and did not want to think about it in detail. There was no such incident inside the memories of the original owner of the body.
Xia Zhe should have died in that previous earthquake. She was the one who saved Xia Zhe and rewrote his fate, which also meant that whatever happened from then onwards would be completely unknown to her.
“Have some tea. It might help you breathe better.” Qiao Mei placed the teapot on the table and handed Xia He a cup of tea. The tea was boiling hot, but Xia He still felt as cold as if she had fallen into an ice cave.
“Qiao Mei, is everything really fine? I want to make a call to eldest brother…” Xia He whispered.
“It’s raining so heavily outside now. You’ll be drenched even with an umbrella. I’ll sleep in the same room as you tonight. When the rain stops, we’ll go out to make the phone call. Or we can just go home directly to take a look tomorrow,” Qiao Mei said as she held Xia He’s hand.
The two of them fell silent. Xia He picked up the teacup and took a sip. Her chest no longer felt stuffy, but her heart still felt uncomfortable and she kept having that uneasy feeling.
Just as she was about to finish the cup of tea, the main door was suddenly kicked open. The door was always locked at night and only people with keys could open it. Moreover, there were security guards from the Xia family stationed around the house. It was definitely impossible for a stranger to enter this way, so it must be someone familiar to them.
Xia He hurriedly ran to the main hall. It was raining so heavily that she could not see who it was. She could only vaguely see a figure in the rain. It seemed to be Xia Wen!
“Eldest brother! Eldest brother, why are you here without an umbrella! Hurry over!” Xia He shouted immediately.
Xia Wen braved the rain and hurriedly ran into the house. Xia He quickly went into the room and took an unused blanket to wrap around Xia Wen, worried that he would catch a cold.
“Eldest brother, what are you doing! Why are you running around on such a rainy day! What if you catch a cold? You don’t take care of your health at all!” Xia He said reproachfully.
Xia Wen just looked at Xia He without saying anything, his eyes filled with sadness and seriousness. Qiao Mei sat at the side and looked at Xia Wen like she suddenly understood something. She clenched the armrest of the chair nervously.
“Who is it?” Qiao Mei asked in a trembling voice.
“Don’t be agitated. I’ll tell you slowly,” Xia Wen said in a deep voice.
