Gu Qingli stretched out his arms and hugged her. As he patted her on the back he comforted, "Trust your auntie's judgment."
Mo Ziyan cried for some time in Gu Qingli's arms and finally fell asleep from exhaustion.
Meanwhile, Gu Qingli watched over her the entire night, not closing his eyes even once.
To make Mo Ziyan happy, he gave her roommates a phone call and asked them to visit her.
When Mo Ziyan saw her friends, she was happy, but it also made her upset, "That's why you girls need to take good care of your bodies. Get regular check-ups done so you don't discover problems when it's too late, like I did."
"Knock on wood...how bad could your condition be? Think about your auntie and think about your uncle, what kind of people are they? Your condition is just child's play for them. You're the only one that's making a fuss over it. There's nothing you can do if you can't keep the baby. You don't want your parents and Professor Gu to worry about you, do you? Can you bear to make them feel that way?"
After hearing from her roommates, Mo Ziyan looked at Gu Qingli and shook her head, "I would never want them to feel that way."
"Then why are you clinging to something that's unrealistic?"
"You're right," Mo Ziyan began to feel a lot better. Her friends had accurately pointed out her problem. If she continued to pity herself and dwell on the matter, then her Brother Four was going to be heartbroken for a long time; this was definitely something that she didn't want.
"You're already a grown woman, so stop acting like a child, OK?"
"Just because you're the daughter of the Mo Family, do you think you're that important?"
The roommates quickly listed Mo Ziyan's issues, but they had good intentions.
Mo Ziyan could tell that her family was protecting her, but she also knew that she should cheer up because she was from the Mo Family.
The roommates effectively did what Gu Qingli hoped and completely improved Mo Ziyan's mood, so after they left, he looked at his wife and smiled, "It seems, both your mother and I can't compare to your roommates."
"Those closely involved in a situation are blinded by it, so I was lost for a while, but I can see clearly now, so I will do as Auntie says."
While there was no one else in the room, Gu Qingli pulled Mo Ziyan into his arms and said, "Good girl..."
Because her mind was clear now, Mo Ziyan became a lot more cooperative. But, the following two days were packed with different exams and tests. In the end, the results were a lot more precise this time around, "It's malignant. We will need to book in a surgery as soon as possible."
When she heard this result, Mo Ziyan sighed.
So, Gu Qingli hugged her and comforted, "You'll be fine, OK?"
"Yes, I know. I just can't bear to let go."
"The earlier we do the surgery, the better it is for you. I've already discussed this with your mother. Don't worry, you can always have children in the future."
"I'm fine, Auntie," Mo Ziyan nodded as she rea.s.sured Tang Yichen.
Meanwhile, the entire Mo Family jumped into action after they heard that Mo Ziyan had such a serious condition and rushed over to the hospital. At the same time, many people from Hai Rui also visited her.
Of course, the thing that the Mo Family was most worried about was whether there were any risks involved with Mo Ziyan's surgery, whether she would experience any changes, how she could recuperate afterwards and whether she'd be able to have children in the future.
Tang Yichen was annoyed by all the ha.s.sling, so she asked Yao Anqi to do the explaining.
The success rate of the surgery was very high, but whether it would relapse depended on how well Mo Ziyan took care of her body afterwards.
"Don't worry, your uncle will be personally handling your surgery."
As there were a lot of people around during the day, Mo Ziyan controlled her emotions and did not breakdown in front of them. But, after everyone was gone, she sat down on her bed and began to cry.
All Gu Qingli could do was carry her out to the garden for a stroll, "Why are you still upset? No matter what happens to you, I will take good care of you. Are you upset because you don't trust me?"
Mo Ziyan shook her head as she turned to look at Gu Qingli, "I'm still a little scared. Plus, I feel sorry for the child in my stomach."
"I've heard about Uncle's medical skills. He's never failed to save his patients and he's treated many people with your condition in the past. So, you don't need to be scared."
"As for our child, it simply reported to us too early. We are sending it back temporarily and we can call it back out after you've recovered."
After hearing this, Mo Ziyan couldn't help but smile, "You always seem so calm. I've never seen you anxious before."
"I'm actually anxious," Gu Qingli replied, "But, no matter how anxious I am, I will never show it to you because I know you rely on me."
Mo Ziyan stretched out her hand and touched Gu Qingli's tired face. He had been working too hard during this time.
Mo Ziyan's heart ached, so, to rea.s.sure Gu Qingli, she knew she had to toughen up...
The surgery was organized for two days later. Apart from terminating her pregnancy, Mo Ziyan was also getting her tumor removed.
During this time, Gu Qingli listened to Tang Yichen's instructions, but he also went to consult an expert in Chinese medicine. He knew that medical technology could guarantee his wife's survival, but Western medicine was harsh and damaging on the body, so she'd probably need Chinese medicine to reverse the damage.
This was something that Tang Yichen didn't get the chance to suggest.
But, Gu Qingli was one step ahead and had already met with a doctor and drafted out a plan.
This made Tang Yichen feel quite guilty; she had misunderstood Gu Qingli in the past and underestimated Mo Ziyan's importance to him.
Gu Qingli even bought medical textbooks to study at home. He was ready to give up his career as a professor and take care of Mo Ziyan's body at any time.
For Mo Ziyan, he was willing to sacrifice his father's last dying wish.
Mo Ziyan quietly watched as Gu Qingli busily went about his day, but all she could do was sit in bed. This made her feel quite bad. If she hadn't approached him on the day that she was planning to leave the university and revealed her feelings to him, Gu Qingli may still be at the university living a stable lifestyle and not be as tired as he was now.
Gu Qingli was running around busily because of her. Yet, what was she doing?
Tangning could tell what her daughter was thinking because it was the same look that she used to give Mo Ting.
"Qingli is so good to you. You need to love him with all your heart, OK?"
"Don't worry, Mom. I will never leave him in this lifetime," Mo Ziyan replied with certainty. "I will stay by his side like how you've stayed by Dad's side all these years and we will love each other dearly."
After Tangning heard this, she proudly ran her hand across her daughter's cheek, "Don't be scared by the surgery tomorrow. We are all here for you."
"Don't worry. I trust uncle and I trust that I'm not that unlucky."
"What nonsense are you talking about?"
Meanwhile, what did Gu Qingli think? Every time his eyes met Mo Ziyan's, it was filled with love and trust.
It was like he was telling her that he never regretted a single day with her and he never would.
