Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 1: Human Doll Contract Part One
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 5: House Keeper Part 3—The True and False World—translated by raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by Amgine & lucathia)
It was rare for Yu Shu to step out of her own apartment. This time, she had a reason, though it wasn’t a very good one. Her neighbor was in the hospital, so she was going to pay him a visit—conveniently bringing along a packet of salt to sprinkle on his wounds.
House Keeper had followed her. In the journey between her apartment and the hospital, he had attracted the gaze of females from eight to eighty years old. All of them stared intently at him. There were also a few that had directly rushed over to give him their contact number, completely ignoring that he had a female by his side.
Even before reaching Jiang Ziya’s hospital room, Yu Shu decided that she would come over again. Next time, she would bring chili powder.
When she walked into the room, only Jiang Ziya was in. He was flipping through an original novel with much difficulty. His entire left arm was in a cast and bandaged, and he wasn’t able to move it a single inch. Even his right hand was wrapped firmly in bandages, and several gauzes were pasted on his face—which had been injured when he had fallen down.
The moment he saw Yu Shu, his expression immediately turned into one of alarm.
Yu Shu looked about the room and seemed puzzled as she asked, “Jiang Yu isn’t around?” It seemed like she could really sprinkle salt on his wounds then.
“My sister went shopping.” Jiang Ziya cowered as he said, “Ah… That… matter regarding House Keeper, I really didn’t do it on purpose…”
“I know. You did it deliberately,” Yu Shu sat at the side of the bed and coldly replied.
Jiang Ziya had no way of explaining himself.
