Given the man’s capabilities, he wouldn’t just have only one way to escape. Moreover it was evident that this had been the most risky and unreliable way. If he wasn’t careful, he would die.
Besides, how many people would dare jump into the endless cold ocean without hesitation?
Why would a rational person like him choose such an irrational means?
She wanted to cry again, but she didn’t want to ask further since he refused to admit it.
After a few minutes of walking, they came across a simple straw shed. Upon entering, Ji Shiting felt around and found a string. He tugged it and the straw shed lit up.
The straw shed wasn’t just furnished with lights but there was also a narrow bed and a blanket. Beside the bed was a stove with a kettle on top. There was also a bucket of water in the corner.
“Not bad.” The man was satisfied.
Ye Shengge was looking at Ji Shiting.
He was drenched, and his shirt and pants were pressed against his body. Even though he looked to be in a miserable state, it didn’t diminish his charm at all.
She stared at him blankly and felt the urge to cry again.
Ji Shiting looked around the shed and saw her looking dazed.
Her face was pale, and her body was shivering. It was obvious that she was suffering from the cold. Ji Shiting suddenly recalled how she had fallen into the ocean from the deck like a broken kite.
He swallowed hard and pulled her into his embrace. He then kissed her forehead and took a deep breath.
Fortunately, that dumb woman was fine.
“Stop spacing out. Take off your wet clothes and get under the blanket,” he said hoarsely. “The rescue team should be able to find us here by dawn.”
Ye Shengge nodded and took off her wet dress. Fortunately, they hadn’t worn too many layers today. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to swim in the ocean for so long.
Ji Shiting’s pupils contracted as he looked at her frozen pale body. He picked her up and put her under the blanket. He then started the stove, filled the kettle with water and put it on the stove before taking off his clothes.
Ye Shengge shivered under the covers, but she kept gazing at him till she saw his well-defined body. She then looked away as if she had just woken up from a dream.
Ji Shiting turned around and saw her trying to cover herself up. He chuckled, lifted the blanket and got in.
The bed was too narrow for two people, so Ji Shiting hugged her from behind. Ye Shengge put her face on his chest and hugged his thin waist.
Ji Shiting pulled the blanket higher and covered her shoulders. There was a damp and moldy smell on the blanket, but he couldn’t care less.
The man grabbed her cold hands and rubbed them, but they didn’t get better. His eyes dimmed. “Are you able to feel anything?”
Ye Shengge looked at him and nodded, then shook her head.
“Are you dumb?” Ji Shiting pinched her face, and his heart skipped a beat. “I do have a method to warm up. Do you want to give it a try?”
