Chapter 430: Mu Mu Is Sick

Gu Qingyao examined him. He had a cold and was running a fever. He was severely ill and he was so young that his brain might be damaged if the fever continued.

She hurriedly took some medicine from her small bag for him. Ever since she had acquired her interspace, Gu Qingyao had gotten into the habit of bringing a small sling bag along so that she could take items out whenever she wanted.

Gu Qingyao stripped away the stiff and tattered quilted jacket that was completely unable to keep out the cold. Then she undid her large quilted jacket and bundled the entire child against her chest.

She was warm and the quilted jacket was made of modern silk floss. It was soft, light and warm. Although she had made the outer layer out of old material, the quilted jacket was very comfortable to wear.

Mu Mu was already unconscious with fever. When Gu Qingyao put him against her chest, he opened his eyes weakly and glanced at Gu Qingyao before fainting again.

He had been orphaned from a young age and had seldom been carried by a woman. He had never experienced a mother’s embrace.

His older brothers had raised him since he was young.

When Gu Qingyao put him against her chest, he sensed the warmth and smelt a faint fragrance. He immediately snuggled close to Gu Qingyao and clutched her clothes tightly.

Gu Qingyao wrapped him up properly and said, “Hurry. We have to give him medicine when we get back. How did he become so ill?”

They hurriedly followed Gu Qingyao and continued towards the Qing River Brigade. Jiang Xun looked guilty.

“It’s all my fault. Mu Mu seemed rather lethargic yesterday, but I was working for someone and did not pay much attention. It’s winter now, and we can’t find any food. We can only eat our stores, and I was afraid that what little grain we have won’t be enough, so I certainly never pass up an opportunity to work for someone in exchange for food.”

“I’ve been working for the past few days. Ping Ping went with me, and only Xiao Jing and Mu Mu remained at home. When I got back this evening, Mu Mu was already so ill he was unconscious.”

Gu Qingyao did not speak. These children were really pitiful. Heaven knows how hard Jiang Xun had worked for them to survive up to now without starving to death.
