Chapter 222: A Day in Life and Death (Part Two)
“However, you don’t need to feel sad.” Qiu Yu touched her bang and said with fatigue in her eyes, “You aren’t dead. There is still hope.”
Fang Jie looked toward Chen Qingshan and saw the sadness in her eyes as well.
Fang Jie wanted to howl, but he only smiled bitterly and closed his eyes. He didn’t want to hear anything; no one could understand him at this moment. The intense frustration of becoming a quadriplegic made him ask himself why he wasn’t dead yet.
“I will figure out a way,” Qiu Yu said while standing up.
She looked at Fang Jie and said seriously, “I haven’t even given up; why should you?”
She left after saying that.
Chen Qingshan held Fang Jie’s hand, and all sorts of emotions appeared in her eyes. She bent down and pressed her face onto the back of Fang Jie’s hand while saying, “Professor Qiu is right. Why should you give up when she hasn’t? This is the Martial Arts Academy. There must be a way to figure out what happened.”
“Professor Qiu told that student named Ma Lilian to find me in the shop, asking me to guard you. Perhaps she is worried that some people will try to harm you when you are defenseless. I wanted to come here with you, but you didn’t allow me. Isn’t this the same outcome?”
Chen Qingshan smiled and said softly, “This isn’t bad; you can rest for a few days.”
Fang Jie murmured, “Is this temporary?”
“It must be.” Chen Qingshan nodded and said, “Regardless of what happens, I will be around you. Xiaoyao and Da Quan guarded you for three years in Fangu, and I guarded the fake you. Now that they aren’t here, I’m the only one protecting you. This room is our world. I will kill whoever tries to harm you.”
Fang Jie’s eyes got wet, and a tear slid down his face.

In the night, Professor Qiu Yu walked into the library in the academy. She told herself that there must be a way.
The library contained a massive number of books, and she held an oil lamp in her hand.
Perhaps all three people would be sleepless tonight.
When the sun rose from the eastern sky and climbed over the city wall of Chang’an, Chen Qingshan got fresh water and cleaned Fang Jie’s face and hand.
Fang Jie who didn’t sleep all night pretended to wake up; he already calmed down.
He gave Chen Qingshan a clean smile, and Chen Qingshan smiled back.
On her way to dump the water, Chen Qingshan saw Ma Lilian standing not far away with a food box.
Ma Lilian seemed nervous; perhaps she wasn’t sure if she should walk over.
Chen Qingshan beckoned at her, took the food box, and thanked her sincerely.
This was Chen Qingshan’s first time saying thanks to someone.
Ma Lilian shook her head and replied, “He saved me twice; this is the least I can do.”
Then, she turned around and walked away without looking back.
Chen Qingshan looked at this girl and felt a little envious.
Then, she returned to the room and fed Fang Jie a bowl of porridge and a vegetable bun.
Fang Jie seemed to have a good appetite, and the sadness and desperation that were in his eyes yesterday couldn’t be seen.
However, Chen Qingshan knew that he was only acting this way to make her feel better.
“Don’t worry; I don’t give up.” Fang Jie smiled and said, “When Heaven wants to task someone with a great mission, it would temper this person’s body and mind. I will treat this as another challenge.
