Heavenly Star – Chapter 255 – Shui Rouxin （III）
Ye Wuchen bent over and picked up the clothes that had slipped from the hands of Hua Shuirou. This was a man’s outfit. When Ye Wuchen looked at it for the first time, he knew instantly that she didn’t make this outfit for her father, but for him. Its size perfectly matched his figure of three years ago, even the color and style of it. He asked, “did you make this for me?”
“Yes…” Hua Shuirou lowered her voice, “I still need to finish making it…It’s only that my husband has grown taller and I need to adjust it a bit.”
He had been “dead” for three years, yet she was still making clothes for him. Ye Wuchen asked, “in the past, did you often make clothes for me?”
“Every time I missed my husband, that was what I would do. My dear, have a look.” Hua Shuirou went to the biggest wardrobe and opened it, “I’ve made all these for you.”
The wardrobe was more than one meter wide and nearly two meters high. It was filled with neatly folded clothes, they came in white, grey, light blue…and there were outerwear, bottom wear, cotton, and even fleece, underwear, shoes and socks. Each one of them came with the color and style that he favored.
“And here as well.” Hua Shuirou hurriedly opened the wardrobe next to him, and she showed him how happy she had made all these for him.
“There is this…this…and something is also inside here…this box contains all the shoes that I’ve made for my husband…my Grandpa had asked me to move all these to somewhere else, but I didn’t want to let them go. I always dreamt of my husband coming back. Then, he could wear the clothes that I made for him. And today, he did come back…”
“My dear never likes wearing very thick clothes. That’s why during winter, I tend to weave a lot of scarves, and I made a lot of cotton clothes and shoes so that I could burn to him…otherwise he’d freeze and suffer. I didn’t expect that he’s fine. And these clothes and shoes will go to waste. What a pity.”
After crying, she had released all her accumulated sorrow. What came after were pleasure and joy. Ye Wuchen’s eyes also became wet, as he was too overwhelmed by all the warmth that Hua Shuirou gave him. All the mixed and complicated feelings were intertwined in his mind. He swore to himself, and he would never do anything to hurt Hua Shuirou again.
“It’s just that…” She looked depressed, “now that my husband has grown taller. I don’t think these would fit you anymore.”
“Don’t be silly, how could this be? I just grew up a little bit, and my size has stayed the same. I’m sure they still fit me. It seems that I no longer need to worry about not having clothes to wear in my next 18 years.” Ye Wuchen said with a grateful smile. He felt spoilt.
Hua Shuirou didn’t look so sure. She whispered, “however, these are all hand-made clothes. My husband should be wearing something more luxurious. How could he…”
Ye Wuchen interrupted her, “you repeated silly things. These are all lovingly hand made by my Xiao Rou. They can’t even be bought by gold. They’re priceless.” He raised his arm and smiled, “the clothes that I’m wearing are a little old. Do you want to change them for me?”
“Yes!” Hua Shuirou felt joyful. She happily changed his clothes for him.
Hua Zhentian sat in his room for a long time, and he couldn’t think of anything to do to pass his time. He was going up and down, and he couldn’t sit still. After a long while, he couldn’t hold it anymore. He was planning to eavesdrop the conversation between Ye Wuchen and his daughter. He thought to himself, as Ye Wuchen had become disabled, there was no way for him to discover his presence.
In the eyes of the servants, Hua Zhentian was looking like a thief when he approached the bedroom of his daughter. Before even getting close, the door was already open, and Hua Shuirou was pushing Ye Wuchen slowly out of the gate. When they discovered Hua Zhentian who was having a weird look on his face, she whispered, “Dad.”
Hua Zhentian was feeling guilty, and he couldn’t adjust his mood so quickly. He wanted to cover up himself by explaining, “I just walked by…hmm…look, my dear daughter, I was sure that this guy wouldn’t die so easily. You have to keep an eye on him from now on. If we lose him again, he won’t be so easily found.”
Hua Shuirou’s face became slightly red, and she bowed, “yes, Dad.”
“Hey, kid, catch it!” Hua Zhentian threw a handful, a large bag of things on Ye Wuchen’s leg. Ye Wuchen immediately noticed something which smelled like gunpowder, and he knew for sure what it was. He slightly twitched his mouth, and if this thing exploded, the entire Hua Family could be killed.
Hua Shuirou softly exclaimed, she hurriedly stepped forward to pick up the package containing Heaven Shaker Bombs, she said carefully, “hey, Dad, he is not in good condition now. How can you throw such a heavy thing to him?”
Ye Wuchen smiled lightly, “it’s okay, my father-in-law only wants the good of me.”
