It wasn’t like Gu Jiao lost control every time. If that were the case, she wouldn't have survived to this day. She actually didn’t know what she was like when she lost control, but Princess Xinyang had told her that her killing intent was even stronger than that of death warriors.
So, if she were to lose control, she would probably kill someone.
And if she didn't stop after killing everyone, she might even kill herself.
In her previous life, only the G.o.dfather knew how to calm her when she lost control. It was the G.o.dfather himself who had given her a scalpel and taught her to resist the lure of blood.
She had made a lot of progress since then.
After coming to this new world, she had lost control twice. The first time was when Grandaunt got injured, but Grandaunt had managed to calm her down so she hadn't completely lost control.
The second time was when Liu Yisheng had lost a finger. She couldn't remember the specifics of what happened at that time, but she guessed that Long Yi had restrained her.
Now that both Grandaunt and Long Yi were not here, she wouldn't easily let herself lose control——
"Why are you suddenly looking at me like that?" Gu Chengfeng was taken aback by the meaningful look Gu Jiao gave him.
Gu Jiao continued in her thoughts, or your life would be lost.
Gu Chengfeng had five st.i.tches in his right arm and three on his forehead.
"Will it leave a scar?" Gu Chengfeng asked, touching the bandage on his forehead with a hint of bitterness.
Gu Jiao, with a strange expression, replied, "You're worried about leaving a scar?"
Gu Chengfeng, with a tinge of regret, said, "After all, I'm so good looking, it's a shame to have scars."
Gu Jiao: "…"
Gu Jiao opened her little medicine chest and started searching inside.
"What are you looking for?" Gu Chengfeng asked in confusion.
"Eye drops." Gu Jiao said, "I suspect you might have eye problems."
Gu Chengfeng, who was clearly a handsome young man: "…"
Gu Jiao had treated all of Gu Chengfeng's injuries, and he was wrapped in bandages like half a mummy, especially his face, which was fully covered except for his eyes.
He rolled his eyes and looked somewhat puzzled.
Am I really that badly hurt? I seriously suspect you're deliberately covering up my handsome face!
The fire was about to burn out, and Gu Jiao went to the living room to fetch another bundle of firewood.
Gu Chengfeng watched her busy little figure and said, "Take a break. I'll keep watch tonight."
"We can take turns keeping watch. You sleep the first half of the night, I need to change some of the dressing anyway." Gu Jiao said, turning to inspect the splints on Old Marquis's limbs. Time and conditions at the Prefect's Mansion were limited, and only simple bracing had been done. Now, they needed to redo it.
There were also his wounds, which needed to be examined carefully.
"My grandfather is okay, right?" Gu Chengfeng asked, looking at Old Marquis.
Gu Jiao had provided Old Marquis with a shock-absorbing brace for his waist and abdomen. The condition of the wound was still good, and his blood pressure was gradually returning to normal. However, he had a slight fever, so it was important to be cautious about the risk of postoperative infection.
"He's okay for now." Gu Jiao said. "You go to sleep, and I'll wake you up in a while."
After a moment of thought, Gu Chengfeng agreed, reminding her, "Make sure to wake me up."
"Mm." Gu Jiao nodded.
Gu Chengfeng pulled the quilt over himself, but he couldn't fall asleep.
In the flickering light of the fire, he lay with his eyes wide open, staring at Gu Jiao.
Gu Jiao, who had just finished securing Old Marquis's left arm, looked back at him, asking, "Anything else?"
Gu Chengfeng was lying on the bed, looking at her from this angle. She still appeared pet.i.te, but her shadow was elongated by the firelight on the wall.
Gu Chengfeng opened his mouth and asked, "Do you... have any family? I mean, back in your hometown."
Gu Jiao fell silent for a moment and replied, "I don't know."
In terms of blood ties, she did, but in terms of emotional connection, she didn't.
They didn't want her.
They didn't want her as their daughter, and they didn't want her as their sister.
She didn't want them either.
How could a person not even know if they had any family? Was she an orphan?
Gu Chengfeng believed that this possibility was quite likely, so he didn't press further with his questions. He cleared his throat and said, "Well, then, don't go back. It's nice here."
Gu Jiao thought, I didn't want to go back, and besides, I can't go back.
"So, yeah... That’s good, too." Gu Chengfeng mumbled vaguely.
"What did you say?" Gu Jiao couldn't hear some of the words he spoke.
"Nothing!" Gu Chengfeng directly pulled the quilt over his head.
Not long after he covered himself with the quilt, Gu Chengfeng fell asleep.
Gu Jiao set up an IV drip for Gu Chengfeng and also took care of all the splints for Old Marquis.
Outside the cabin, large, feather-like snowflakes were gently falling, and the howling cold winds had long dissipated, leaving only a colorful snow dance and an incredible tranquilness in the entire night.
In the second half of the night, Gu Jiao didn't wake Gu Chengfeng.
She stood by the door holding the red-ta.s.seled spear in her arms, and silently kept watch throughout the night.
Before her were floating snowflakes that filled the sky, and behind her was the person she needed to protect.
When the sky was gradually getting bright, Gu Chengfeng woke up.
It had been a long time since he had slept so well, and he felt like his entire vitality had been restored.
He opened his eyes, seeing the light filtering through the window. Only then did he suddenly remember that he was supposed to keep vigil during the latter half of the night!
Had he overslept?
Or had that girl simply not called him?!
He looked around and saw that his grandfather was still lying on the other bamboo bed, but there was no sign of Gu Jiao.
"Hmm? Where's that girl?" Gu Chengfeng threw back the quilt, sat up, and soon realized that he was aching all over his body. He frowned and moved more gingerly because he was still injured.
He first checked on his grandfather, who remained unconscious but had steadier breathing compared to the previous night.
Both his grandfather and he had been injured. He hoped that girl wouldn't run into any accident.
Gu Jiao went out to look for food. There was nothing to eat in this hunter's house except for that lump of leftover food, which had been sitting there for who knew how many days. In addition, the firewood was almost gone, so she went into the nearby woods.
She gathered some dead branches but didn't manage to catch any prey.
She planned to first carry the dead branches back to the cabin. Just as she turned around, another person began to approach slowly from the other side of the woods, heading in the direction of the small cabin.
Could it be the owner of the cabin?
That person was dressed in animal hide and wore a hat. Gu Jiao couldn't make out his appearance but could sense that he had a tall and st.u.r.dy figure, walking effortlessly through the snow that reached up to his thighs.
Gu Jiao made her judgment in her mind.
She headed back towards the cabin, carrying the dead branches she had gathered. The two of them unexpectedly met on the way, and it was only when they came face to face that Gu Jiao finally managed to see the man’s face.
At the same time, the man also saw Gu Jiao.
