Apex Predator - Chap 72
That night, Shen Dai fell asleep anxiously, the sleep was already very light, and he woke up the first time Qiuqiu cried.
He was already so sensitive to Qiuqiu’s crying at night that his body would make a conditioned reflex before his brain, and he sat up from the bed at once. The delayed drowsiness made him feel dazed for a while, but he woke up quickly and went to sleep. Gently patted Qiuqiu’s small chest, comforted him in a low voice, then picked up Qiuqiu and shook him.
Cheng Zimei slept next door, and she had to go to work during the day, because Qiu Qiu hadn’t had a good rest these days, Shen Dai was very eager to hope that Qiu Qiu would calm down as soon as possible. But he soon found out that something was wrong, he touched Qiuqiu’s forehead in shock, it was so hot, he put his hand into the child’s collar again, the heat of the skin was obviously abnormal.
Shen Dai’s brain emptied, but was immediately filled with anxiety—Qiuqiu had a fever! Generally newborns are less likely to get sick before half a year old, because the body still has the immunity acquired from the mother, but because Qiuqiu lacks the pheromone of the alpha father during the whole pregnancy process, his constitution is weak, the doctor reminded him The related risks made it necessary for him to provide Qiuqiu with a stable and safe environment.
Flying, acclimatization, being frightened by Qu Moyu, contacting strangers, these are all a lot of pressure for a young child, and now it is really released by illness.
Shen Dai repented unceasingly, his heart was as uncomfortable as being roasted, the most painful thing for him was that he had no other way at all, no one could help him solve the resignation problem, no one could take care of the children for him, and no one could Stop Qu Moyu from approaching again and again.
The hardships of life cannot be put into words, because the experience alone has exhausted the energy.
With a sense of guilt, Shen Dai woke up Cheng Zimei and asked her to accompany him to the hospital. He couldn’t take care of the child and register and pay the bill at the same time.
When the two got into the taxi, it was just dawn, and Cheng Zimei was yawning all over the place, and at the same time, she was using her mobile phone to check how to care for the baby’s fever.
The driver learned that Qiuqiu had a fever, so he drove very fast and did not forget to comfort them.
When they arrived at the hospital, Shen Dai took Qiuqiu for consultation. The doctor suggested using physical cooling and antipyretic drugs, instead of taking injections, and staying in the hospital for observation for a period of time. After the order was completed, Cheng Zimei went to pay for the medicine.
The nearest hospital is a public hospital, and the pediatrics department is full of children, big and small, and the constant crying and howling can blow off the roof. Just being in this environment makes people irritated, and it hurts like a head will explode. .
The doctors and nurses were too busy. After Shen Dai fed Qiuqiu the medicine, he sat holding the crying child for more than an hour before the nurse took him to wipe Qiuqiu’s body with warm water. The nurse hurriedly explained to Shen Dai How to rub it, I demonstrated it myself, and then I hurried to see other patients.
Shen Dai seemed to have been injected with adrenaline. He had high mobility, but he could clearly feel the fatigue of his body. He said to Cheng Zimei: “Go to work, I will observe with him for a few hours, and the fever subsides. It should be fine.”
“No, how can you be so busy alone.” Cheng Zimei looked at Shen Dai’s haggard appearance, feeling very uncomfortable, and sighed, “Raising children is too difficult, I don’t want to I want it.”
Shen Dai wanted to say that it is difficult to raise a child alone, but it would not be so difficult if the husband and wife are of the same heart, but he couldn’t say it because he was a typical negative example.
“You rest for a while, I will, I’ll wipe it.” Cheng Zimei saw Qiuqiu’s eyelids drooping, “Look, he is about to fall asleep.” “I can’t leave, he can’t feel
my pheromones immediately I will cry again.” Shen Dai looked at Qiuqiu who was shaking from crying and his face was flushed with fever, his nose was sore, and he almost cried.
Many, many difficult moments, such as going to the maternity check-up with a belly upright, preparing delivery materials by himself, the pain of childbirth and postpartum pain, the exhaustion of taking care of the child day and night, seeing the business that he has worked hard for many years being delayed, all made him When my emotions were on the verge of collapse, deep down in my heart, I questioned myself: Do you regret it?
Every time he listened carefully to his inner voice, every time he calmly analyzed and thought after the pain, the answer every time was: no regrets.
He believes that the most difficult time is passing, and he believes that the faith and strength brought to him by this child are far greater than those lost.
Shen Dai kept watch for several hours without daring to rest, kept looking at Qiuqiu, and dozed off against the wall. Qiuqiu’s temperature dropped a bit, but the fever did not subside completely. He sometimes woke up crying, and sometimes fell asleep. The doctor asked him to observe for another two hours before deciding whether to go home or receive further treatment.
When Qu Moyu walked into the noisy pediatric ward, what he saw was Shen Dai’s thin, hunched back, with his shoulders and head against the cold wall, frozen like a sculpture, motionless.
Qu Moyu felt sour, unable to accept that his omega had to be so hard and embarrassed. He walked over slowly, just when he was hesitating whether to approach, Bhikkhu Shen Dai sensed something first and turned around.
Shen Dai’s eyes were blue-gray, the white eyeballs were bloodshot, his complexion was papery, his lips were chapped, as if he was sick too.
Qu Moyu was distressed and angry, and the cries and screams of the children around him made his temples twitch. He had never been in such an environment before, a person who was overwhelmed by pain, noise, anxiety, resentment and the smell of hydrogen peroxide. He really wanted to put his wife and children in his arms and leave here immediately.
Shen Dai’s face became even uglier the moment he saw him.
Qu Moyu took a deep breath: “I called you to turn off the phone, and I went to the hotel to find you. The front desk said that you took the child to the hospital in the middle of the night, so I found this place.” Shen Dai was so tired that he didn’t even want to say anything, just
watched With one glance, he turned around.
“Go to my hospital. There is a shortage of manpower here. The doctors and nurses can’t take care of Qiuqiu.” Qu Moyu said softly, “You can’t take care of him well in this state.” Shen Dai looked at Qiuqiu who was panting, his eyes widened
. It turned red.
“Don’t be stubborn at this time, let’s go.”
Cheng Zimei, who went out to buy coffee, came back, and she stared at Qu Moyu with wide eyes.
Qu Moyu glanced at her: “Cheng Gong, right?” He knew that she was Shen Dai’s classmate and friend. Although it is almost impossible for a male omega to have feelings for a female beta, at this moment, Cheng Zimei has implicitly replaced his position and role, which still makes him uncomfortable.
“Qu, President Qu.” Cheng Zimei looked at Shen Dai.
“Thank you for accompanying Shen Dai and Qiuqiu to the hospital. I’ll pick them up and change to another hospital. You can go back to work.”
Shen Dai silently packed up her things, then hugged Qiuqiu up: “Zimei, you go back first, I’m too much trouble for you today.” He didn’t want to have any conflicts with Qu Moyu in the presence of Cheng Zimei, let alone getting Qiuqiu better now is the most important thing.
Cheng Zimei nodded dully, looking at the two of them a little dumbfounded.
Shen Dai walked out of the ward with Qiuqiu in his arms, and Qu Moyu walked up to him in a few steps, helping him to block a parent who was tugging with the spoiled child in the corridor, and at the same time, wrapped his strong arms around the thin Shoulder.
The calm ebony pheromone pierced through the clouds like a sharp sword, and floated into Shen Dai’s nose surrounded by heavy disinfectant. He couldn’t help sniffing the pheromone. At least at this moment, the smell gave him A little peace of mind.
After getting into the car and closing the door, the three adults held their breath nervously, observing Qiuqiu’s reaction.
Maybe the fever affected Qiuqiu’s senses, he didn’t cry because of Qu Moyu’s approach, he didn’t seem to notice it at all.
This made Shen Dai even more worried, and he said: “Old Wu, please drive faster.” ”
Seeing Qiuqiu’s blushing face, Qu Moyu also became anxious: “Why do you have a fever?”
” I don’t know.”
“Go to the hospital for a good checkup, don’t worry, he will recover soon.”
Shen Dai looked at Qiuqiu and murmured, “How do you know?”
“He is my son, our son, and he is in good health.” Qu Moyu looked at Shen Dai who was looking at Qiuqiu. Compared with the confident and calm Shen Gong before, the person in front of him seemed to be trapped in a different picture The face in life, the facial features clearly did not change, but it was pale and pale, and lost its luster, but he couldn’t take his eyes off. He saw in Shen Dai a kind of fragile and strong beauty that used his broken self to accommodate future generations. Regardless of gender, there is only one identity that can radiate the unique brilliance of being a parent.
He loves his omega, he just wants to hold Shen Dai in his arms, block all the wind and rain, and caress all the pain.
Luxurious private hospitals are completely different from public hospitals in terms of environment and experience. Coming here is not like seeing a doctor, but enjoying services.
Qiuqiu was assigned to the best ward, and immediately doctors and full-time nurses surrounded him to see and take care of him. The test results were the same as what the previous doctor said. For ordinary fever, it is best to take medicine and physically reduce the fever. The difference is that , the place is quiet and clean, the nurse never leaves, Shen Dai’s messy heart calmed down, and he was no longer so anxious and worried.
Qiuqiu still fell asleep and cried sometimes. The nurse said: “The child is not feeling well, and his mood will be bad, which will also affect the speed of recovery. You should release more soothing pheromones to him, let him cry less, eat more and sleep more. , the fever will subside soon after gaining physical strength.”
Shen Dai touched his bag and took out Bai Xiangwan’s pheromone spray from it, hesitating. In fact, he sprayed it a long time ago, but it didn’t work. This kind of substitute pheromone can only deceive children with their sense of smell, but Qiuqiu’s sense of smell has temporarily failed. Human beings’ perception of pheromones is far more than the sense of smell, it also involves the nervous system, blood system and endocrine system, so Qiuqiu can still get his pheromone comfort, but cannot get Bai Xiangwan’s.
Qu Moyu took away the almost empty small spray bottle and threw it into the trash can: “Let me try.” He looked into Shen Dai’s eyes with sincerity, “I am his alpha Father.”
