I looked up to see that Chen Yanqing had dropped by again.
“Is the boy doing okay?” he asked with concern.
I shook my head, gazing at the slumbering Xiaotian, an unspeakable sadness in my heart.
Ever since the child fell asleep that day, he hadn’t once woken up and he even burned with a fever. If not for the fact that he didn’t look like he was on the verge of death, I’d have run away with the child. Although people still hadn’t figured out the specific conditions for a human to turn into an aberrant, it wasn’t hard to reason that the dead turn into aberrants.
Even Auntie Chen, who had originally been quite pleasant, started having her doubts, and she huddled at the other end of the tent with Beibei in her arms. If not for the fact that Chen Yanqing came by three times a day, I’d probably have been chased out of the tent… No, more like been chased straight out of the camp?
