Chapter 870: Not so Good-Looking
Xia Ruoxin placed her hands on her knees. It had been a month; it had really been a month. She actually did not walk out of the door in such a long time and did not see the sky outside.
When the sunlight from outside shone on her body, she felt as if her body started to tremble.
She used her hands to block her eyes, and on her thin arm, it seemed that there was only a bone. Aside from the bone, there was only a layer of skin.
She lowered her head and looked at her fingers that looked like a chicken claw. At this time, a man walked behind her; and her body was slightly taken aback. When she turned around, she saw that man talking to his colleague.
The white doctor’s uniform was still so clean and pure. He smiled, and tears instantly welled up in Xia Ruoxin’s eyes and rolled down onto the back of her hands. They were cold and patchy.
For some reason, that man also turned around.
“What’s the matter, Gao Yi?” The colleague beside him asked him weirdly and followed the direction of his gaze. “Oh, it’s them—people from the Lu family. I heard from others that the one injured was the Missy of the Lu family. They have always been protecting her carefully, but she still ended up like this.”
“Missy of the Lu Family?” Gao Yi thought for a while. He seemed to have heard from others that there was a missy in the Lu family, but no one had ever seen her before. However, he could understand this.
The Lu family had some place in the military so perhaps they did this to protect their daughter. However, no matter how much they protected her, she still got into trouble.
“Let’s go.” He raised his wrist and touched the watch on it. He still had surgery to do later on, and other people’s privacy had nothing to do with him. There was no use thinking about that stuff.
Xia Ruoxin held her finger tightly. Actually, she did not know how her identity had ended up like that, and she even became the Missy of the Lu family in the end. Lu family… it was the Lu family; the Lu family held a lot more power than the Xia household.
Xiao Ma pushed Xia Ruoxin’s wheelchair to the plane, and they were riding in first class. Qin Xuejuan also followed them. Since Lu Jinrong was leaving, what would she do if she stayed? It would be better if she just followed, and she could still make soup for them every day. Besides, she had not seen that son of her family’s in a long time.
It was not the first time Xia Ruoxin rode a plane, but she was still not used to the feeling of a human in the air with her feet off the ground. In a daze, she fell asleep. When she woke up again, she was already lying down on a huge bed. She sat up, but her legs were still being held down. Only her eyes could turn and look at people.
The room was styled in a light blue Mediterranean style with warm decorations. There was a light fragrance in the room. She turned her head, and as expected, there was a pot of perfume lilies on the table.
This flower was indeed very fragrant and left the entire room in its smell.
The bed was soft, and the blanket was comfortable and did not leave her body in wounds.
This was a small town in France and had a unique view. This was a romantic country—a flower paradise, and one could also say that it was people’s paradise.
She closed her eyes to sleep again.
She got better day by day. Half a month later, she could already eat and did not vomit anymore; but her voice did not recover as well. In the past, there was always something thin about her voice, but now it was slightly hoarse. Xiao Ma said that he could not deny that this voice was pleasant to the ears, and it gave people the feeling of goosebumps. Qin Xuejuan also said that her voice was very nice like a superstar’s voice. However, Xia Ruoxin could not tell. She only knew that she had lost her voice. Now, the voice she had was not hers… but was also hers.
A month later, the doctor helped to remove the gauze on her face. He removed the layers one by one. When everything was removed and her face was exposed in front of everyone, Xiao Ma almost screamed.
“I’m very ugly, right?” Xia Ruoxin touched her face nonchalantly, and her hoarse voice sounded special. It did not have the clearness of fountain water or the roundness of a pearl, but in people’s ears, it sounded like a cool breeze. After the wind blew past, her voice stayed. It was a weird feeling, but when one heard it once, one would secretly remember this strange feeling.
She smiled and did not have much feeling about her face. She was the person involved, but she did not feel the heartache. She was already very grateful to be alive.
“It’s okay.” Lu Jinrong walked over and placed his hand on her head. “You’re not very ugly; you’re just not so good-looking. Hm… I want to open a dieting restaurant and put your face in the most obvious position.”
Xiao Ma’s face drooped. Young Master Rong, couldn’t you just talk nicely?
However, Xia Ruoxin smiled, and it did not look contorted at all perhaps because of her pair of clear eyes. Xiao Ma felt that she must be very beautiful before her face was disfigured and might even have the looks of his favorite goddess.
Just that at this point, it was all matters before she was disfigured. In the past, she was a beauty; now, she was a female ghost.
The few doctors kept researching something on Xia Ruoxin’s body and might discuss it together for a while at times.
Not long later, they sat together with Lu Jinrong.
Lu Jinrong sat with his legs doled and placed his hands on the armrest.
“Say, when can we have the surgery?” He said in fluent French, along with the accurate warmth and tone of a distinguished French person; it was pleasant to the ears. Then, the few doctors told him the results of their discussion.
“We have done a few checks on the missy’s face, and it’s not too hard to fix her appearance. We can have the surgery half a year later, but do you have the lady’s old picture? We need it as a reference as her face injury is severe, and it can’t be fixed just by doing scar removal. There are also some muscles that we need to alter.”
“Mm, I understand. I’ll tell her.”
Lu Jinrong understood that the surgery half a year later was enough for them to handle.
Xia Ruoxin sat on the wheelchair, and her legs were covered by a blanket. A big collie was lying beside her called Charlie. This type of dog had a very gentle temperament and was very smart. Charlie had always been here accompanying Xia Ruoxin and was also the best gift that she received. She did not really like to see people not because she was too ugly but because her face would scare them.
She threw an apple out, and Charlie hurriedly stood up and ran towards it. In no time, he already came back with the apple in his mouth. Then, he squatted in front of Xia Ruoxin and kept wagging his tail.
