Jun Xiaomo felt as though she had been floating in the middle of a vast ocean, undulating in tandem with the ebb and flow of the waves.
The boundless ocean waters seemed to have a life of its own, and each drop of the ocean waters sought to forcefully burrow through each and every pore on Jun Xiaomo’s skin. She felt like wincing and crying out in pain. She felt like waving her arms about in order to shake off the dull pain accompanying the bloated feeling afflicting her body, yet the ocean waters seemed to engulf her orifices, restrain her limbs and drag her down to the depths of the ocean as it consumed her.
Just as she was about to be resigned to her fate of perishing in this boundless ocean, a soothing current swept over towards her and enshrouded her, protecting her from the dreadful ocean waters and bringing relief to her aching bones and flesh.
Finally, she came to her senses.
When she first awakened, everything in front of her eyes still seemed like a blur, and she mistook her surroundings for that boundless ocean in her dreams.
“Ungh…” Jun Xiaomo rubbed her eyes, and her head turned slightly as she began to stir.
“You’re awake? You’ve been unconscious for several hours.” A deep voice rang out beside her, causing her to remove her hands from her eyes in bewilderment.
It was only at this moment that Jun Xiaomo discovered her dark surroundings were a result of the lack of sunlight around her. The sky outside her room had already darkened, and dusk had fallen. The candles in her room was unlit as well.
As her eyes slowly acclimated to her dark surroundings, she began to notice Rong Ruihan seated quietly beside her.
