If they knew each other in private, they would have acknowledged it the last time they met on the Gomes Golf Course.

“You see!” Thinking she was right, Li Lingyi was quite complacent and gave a long sigh of relief at the same time.

How can she allow Xia Xingchen to exceed her Xingkong!

… …

As Xia Xingchen arrived at the door of the dressing room, she saw a group of people in black guarding both inside and outside the room.

She pushed the door and went in, and saw Bai Yeqing dressing into the protection suit.

She was in a dilemma at this moment. The President was changing clothes inside. Should she keep going or step back?

Suddenly he looked sideways and said, “Come in.”

After that, he nodded at the medical worker beside him, and the latter immediately took out another set of protection suit, “Miss Xia, this is for you.”

“Thank you.”

“You go out first.”

Bai Yeqing spoke, and everyone stepped back one after another.

In a short while, only she and Bai Yeqing were left in the dressing room. She looked at him with gratitude, but he just said, “Put on your suit first.”

So she put on the suit as he asked her to.

Bai Yeqing look at her and slowly walked towards her.

He stopped before her and raised his hand. As his long fingers nearly touched her neck, she felt suffocated and stepped back unconsciously. Bai Yeqing frowned.

“Come here!”

“…” Xia Xingchen bit her lips and stared at him. Two times, she was almost… eaten by him, so she was somewhat afraid of him…

He squinted, “Is this your way of thanking me?”

Xia Xingchen pouted, though unwilling, she still walked over obediently.

Bai Yeqing glanced at her, reached for her collar and tightened it.

It turned out that…

He just wanted to help her dress…

Xia Xingchen looked up at him. Even though he was wearing a bulky protection suit, he still looked so charming.

Especially when he was looking down to check her suit, her heart was pounding and mixed feelings were surging.

Suddenly she said, “Thank you.”

Two light and gentle words, like the white clouds flying in the sky.

Bai Yeqing raised his eyes to look at her, “Are you afraid?”

She shook her head at once. “No.”

She felt very safe with him by her side.

He is like the sky that will never fall, the mountain that will never collapse.

“Put on the mask and gloves.” Bai Yeqing said, hanging the mask on her face. His movements were not gentle at all, but as his warm fingers touched her cheeks, she felt that both her heart and body were about to melt.

He warned, “After we go in, no matter what happens, DO NOT take off your mask and gloves!”

His voice is very domineering and overbearing.

Xia Xingchen felt a little sweet in her heart and smiled, “OK, I’ll listen to you.”

Bai Yeqing was quite satisfied with her obedient attitude. After glancing at her two more times, he put on the mask as well.

Xia Xingchen suddenly took off the mask and said, “I actually have to thank you for another thing.”

“Huh?”

“It’s about my job…” Xia Xingchen said softly, with gratitude in her eyes.

When Xia Xingchen mentioned this, Bai Yeqing snorted coldly, “I made an unnecessary move! You are indeed good at attracting men. Having Yu Zenan as your protector, there’s no need of me.”

Instead of getting angry with him, she laughed, “It’s no big deal. I’ll cook another meal and make amends to you. All right?”

She remembered what Xia Dabao had said to her on the phone last time. No wonder he thought she would cook and entertain him that night.

“Who cares? The cooks at home are very good.”

The same treatment as that man; moreover, he was not the first one to have it, so he was afraid that he would choke on the meal.

“Then what do you care about?”

Bai Yeqing contemplated for a while and looked at her. Then something came to his mind, and his eyes gradually became scorching.

Her heart was trembling at the sight of him, and then he said in a hoarse whisper, “What I want is more than a dinner…”

The man’s eyes were so dark and intense that she suddenly felt hot and dangerous.

She immediately turned around and walked out, “Now that we’re dressed, let’s go out!”

Without stopping, she pulled the door open, but she could still feel the scorching eyes behind her.

Her heart was like a beating drum.

Bai Yeqing watched her running away with amusement. He suddenly felt it interesting to play with her.

… …

There were many patients staying in the isolation wards.

Bai Yeqing was surrounded by officials, medical staff and the official media. Xia Xingchen, as a family member of the patient, followed in the last row.

After entering the ward, Bai Yeqing talked with patients sincerely. When shaking hands with patients, he would take off gloves in particular.

Xia Xingchen’s heart was hung up her throat. She stood in the back, remembering that he had warned her not to take off the mask and gloves under any circumstances, she was eager to put on the gloves for him, but…

She couldn’t do that…

In front of the crowd, all she could do was look up at him…

Moreover, when the national was in danger, he, as the President, should always not care about his own life or death.

When they arrived at an isolation ward, everyone stopped.

Fu Yichen looked sullen, “Your Excellency, this isolation ward holds the newly-admitted case. Now the virus of the patient is still highly infectious, so we suggest that you do not go in for the time being.”

Bai Yeqing didn’t respond, but looked back at Xia Xingchen. Xia Xingchen was anxious to see her father, but she didn’t want Bai Yeqing to take risks with her.

Originally, she had only intended to ask him for help, and she really didn’t expect that he would come here in person!

“Doctor Fu, Your Excellency, it’s dangerous inside. Let me go in alone.” Xia Xingchen took a few steps forward and stopped beside Fu Yichen.

Leng Fei also said, “Your Excellency, please, come back two days later.”

Bai Yeqing glanced at her, meditating. The next moment, he ordered, “All of you, step back. You don’t have to follow me into this ward.”

Leng Fei instantly understood his intentions, and he immediately rejected, “Your Excellency, it’s very dangerous. You still have a lot of political affairs to deal with…”

“You go out too!” Bai Yeqing interrupted Leng Fei directly, and his tone sounded decisive and irrefutable.

Leng Fei looked at Fu Yichen, implying that Fu Yichen also said something. While Fu Yichen had no choice but to say, “Let’s go, Miss Xia, you stay here.”
