She even forgot to run away!
There was only one lamp on the balcony and the light rays from it were extremely dim. Therefore, she was not able to see the woman’s face clearly. She only saw the white-washed patient gown on her, and how the woman seemed to be a little insane. Right after Yun Shishi spoke, the woman let out a sudden eerie laugh.
“He he! He he…”
The woman only stood there laughing crazily to herself. As her gaze fell on Yun Shishi, she began to close in on her.
Yun Shishi’s expression turned rigid.
Her laughter sounded too sinister, like a malicious spirit that came from purgatory, baring fangs and brandishing claws. It was utterly horrific, as if she was here to take away her life.
Yun Shishi felt stifled as she retreated instinctively out of fear. She had forgotten to run at that moment.
“Yun Shishi… Yun Shishi! You’ve put me in such a terrible state!”
The woman laughed maniacally while raising her head. Her shrill and sharp voice reverberated throughout the empty balcony, causing her to shiver all over with goosebumps!
“You’ve caused me to be in such a terrible state! Return the child to me, return the child to me!”
Her sharp voice as she hooted in a shrill manner was enough to burst another’s eardrums.
As the light rays illuminated her face, Yun Shishi was finally able to see the malevolent and warped face of the woman.
It was an unfamiliar yet familiar face at the same time.
“Mu… Mu Wanrou?!”
Yun Shishi’s expression completely changed as her face paled in an instant.
She was completely unaware that this was the woman in front of her, until now.
Why was it her?!
She had no idea why Mu Wanrou had turned into such a state!
Yun Shishi furrowed her brows as she almost suffocated from panic. She tightened her fists and watched every single one of her actions fixedly with a guarded expression.
As she noticed the words printed on the woman’s patient gown, she realized it was from some psychiatric hospital.
She had a profound memory of this psychiatric hospital.
It was the capital’s most well-known psychiatric nursing institution, where many patients with severe disorders were kept.
Her impression of Mu Wanrou had been someone noble, refined, poised, and beautiful. But now, what was once her black and beautiful silk hair had become ash-colored and was as messy as withered grass.
She did not know what the woman had gone through during this period, but her black, silk hair was now blended with much white hair. From far, she looked like she had aged several years in one night!
Her appearance had gone through great changes as the wrinkles on her forehead were deep and her face looked morbidly pale and haggard. Her eye sockets and cheeks had sunken in while her cheekbones had protruded out from how skinny she was. Especially that pair of lips of hers, which were dried up and cracked like the grounds of Mother Earth in the past.
She had gotten thin.
Initially, she was a little stout. But now, she was skinny to the bones like a walking skeleton. It was not an exaggeration to describe her that way at all.
Her wrists were all skin and bones, and her veins were obvious. Yun Shishi had no idea what kind of torture she had gone through as her body was covered in bruises while her neck had plenty of scratches. Albeit healing, there were scars that were unbearable to look at as if her flesh had been gouged out in a raw manner. It was extremely disgusting.
“Don’t come near me!”
Yun Shishi glared at her vigilantly and was extremely guarded against her.
“Return the child to me, ha ha ha! Return the child to me! Return my flesh and blood to me!”
After a devastating and insane laugh, she calmed down all of a sudden. The abrupt change back to normal from her insane behavior made it seem like everything had just been an act.
