Translator: Sweet Bun
Special thanks to LH~ 😉
As I have changed my full-time job now, there is not enough time to keep this story 3 ch/week. So the new schedule is 2ch/week, if I happen to get more free time or be in the mood of translating, there could be a bonus chapter. Again, thanks my proofreader and all my lovely readers~
“Miss Xia, here’s your meal… Ah, I’m sorry… I’m sorry, Mr. President. I didn’t know you were here. I’ll go out now!” The masked servant came in and was shocked by the scene, so she hurriedly lowered her head and turned to leave.
Xia Xingchen flushed red throughout her cheeks as they burned from embarrassment.
“It’s all your fault! I’ve lost all my face now!” Xia Xingchen was so angry that she kicked him angrily in the lap.
He no longer bothered her but rolled over and came down from her body in an elegant way. Xia Xingchen was finally able to breathe smoothly, and she quickly got up from bed and hid herself in the quilt like hiding from a beast.
She sweated more than before and dared not look at him again.
Compared with her franticness, he remained calm and relaxed. Even if the servant had just seen them in that situation, he looked as if he was not the person concerned.
Bai Yeqing tidied up his shirt and strolled back to the bedside. When his shadow cast upon Xia Xingchen, she subconsciously raised her hand to stop him. At the same time, she stared at him vigilantly, as if he would stretch out his claws at any moment.
He snorted, “You really like to flatter yourself, do you?”
Xia Xingchen stunned.
Bai Yeqing pressed the bell next to the bed, and one of the medical staff immediately answered. He ordered, “Come in and give Miss Xia a new injection. Also, ask someone to bring in the meal.”
“Roger.” The medical staff hung up.
Xia Xingchen put her hand down in embarrassment.
For a long time, his words were still echoing in her head.
– You really like to flatter yourself, do you?
She felt there was a deep meaning in that remark.
He not only judged her unnecessary movement, but also answered her previous question – Are you being jealous of Xu Yan?
Xia Xingchen felt somewhat depressed, and when she realized she put up this question so directly, she felt herself ridiculous.
Just then, the medical team came in with the servant.
Xia Xingchen reached out silently to receive the injection.
“Miss Xia, you’d better not touch the needle anymore. Your arms are swollen now.” The nurse of the medical team warned her gently.
Bai Yeqing was checking the meal that the servant had brought in, when he heard the nurse’s comment, he looked sideways at her direction and true enough there was swelling of purple blotches on her arm.
Xia Xingchen felt his gaze and stared back at him angrily. If it hadn’t been for him, she wouldn’t have pulled out the needle!
But when she turned to the nurse, she looked benign and pleasant, “Okay, I will do as you say.”
Bai Yeqing didn’t stay long in her room. After he left, Xia Xingchen ate dinner alone with chopsticks.
These dishes were bland and tasteless.
She forced herself to eat a little and then check the screen of her phone, it was quite late.
She called Chi Weiyang.
Chi Weiyang had fallen asleep, but hearing Xia Xingchen’s voice, she sobered up a little. When she heard that Xia Xingchen might be infected with WIS and had to ask for leave from work, she immediately sat up in bed.
“Which hospital are you in? I’m going to see you now. Why didn’t you tell me earlier? You are not alone, right?
Chi Weiyang continued while changing her clothes, “Have you eaten any foods, or what do you want to eat? I’ll bring you some.”
Xia Xingchen was deeply moved, “After hearing your voice, I’m almost recovered.”
“Then I’m your panacea. Tell me where you are right now.”
“Sister, thank you for your concern, but don’t worry about me. I’m not in the hospital.”
“Not in the hospital? You are in the presidential residence?”
“H’m.” Xia Xingchen replied, “I didn’t want to come here, but he caught me back.”
Chi Weiyang naturally knew that ‘he’ referred to Mr. President.
She sighed, “Envy you! Xingchen, Mr. President is so good to you.”
“You must be kidding!” Remembering the intimidation and humiliation she had just suffered before him, Xia Xingchen couldn’t agree with Weiyang. He’s absolutely terrible! A complete bastard!
“Cut it out, you just don’t appreciate the happy life you enjoy. Think about it, you’re a suspected patient with WIS! If someone else finds you in such a condition, for example, your stepmother, she will have kicked you out early. Then look at our righteous Mr. President…”
Xia Xingchen touched the goose bumps on her arms, “You flattered him.”
“Don’t interrupt me!” Chi Weiyang was in high spirits, “Our righteous and awesome Mr. President not only didn’t drive you out, but also took you back and takes good care of you. Tell me, if he doesn’t treat you well, who does?
Xia Xingchen was speechless.
She thought about it carefully and objectively, then admitted, “Well, okay, you’re right.”
“Hey, is it possible that the President has fallen in love with you?”
Xia Xingchen’s heart skipped a beat at this hypothesis. However, she also remembered his “you really like to flatter yourself” remark, so she denied anxiously, “… You’re talking nonsense again. How can this happen between us? Besides, he said that he brought me back simply because he doesn’t want me to infect more people. Everything he does is based on his identity as the President, so don’t think about it anymore.”
“Really?” Chi Weiyang was dubious.
“I gotta go, I’m tired.” Xia Xingchen wanted to stop this topic.
Chi Weiyang could feel it, “Okay. I will go to the presidential residence tomorrow. Can I get in?”
“… I don’t know. I’ll ask that for you later.”
“Go ahead, I just want to see my cute boy and visit the presidential residence by the way.
“I see, you have ulterior motives!”
The evening drew on.
Xia Xingchen fell asleep, but she felt someone had come to pull out the needle from her at night. Then she seemed to have seen Bai Yeqing again.
A warm water bag was put on her swollen arm.
She tried to open her eyes to see if it was him or she was dreaming. However, she was too tired to do so: well… It cannot be him, right? A bad guy like him won’t be that kind to me!
She muttered, turned over and complained, “You… You are a big bad scoundrel…”
Bai Yeqing put the fallen hot-water bottle back on her arm and rubbed her swollen arm gently. Listening to her complaints, his twisted brows relaxed as he felt amused.
She was scolding him, but her soft voice couldn’t provoke him, she was like a kitten right now…
Bai Yeqing involuntarily reached out and pulled away the hair on her cheek and looked deeply at her delicate little face.
