a little careless: “Don’t worry, doctor.
I’ll be fine; there’s nothing major… I’ll just have to wait for my body to recover.”
Lu Sen didn’t expect him to be so sensitive, so direct, and understand what he was going to say in one look, answering his unanswered question directly.
A hint of surprise flashed in his brown eyes, and he couldn’t help but re-evaluate the person in front of him.
Despite the faint tiredness and confusion on the young face, as if he has not woken up, Lu Sen knew that it was only due to the residual drugs in his body.
Because those black eyes are still bright, like stars in the sky.
Lu Sen smiled and nodded: “Then you should rest well.
You can rest assured that your body is very healthy, but the side effects of the drug may continue for a few days.
Fortunately, there will be no sequelae.”
When evening rolled around, as the sun set in the west, a blood red hue illuminated the skyline.
The sky was full of rays of light, and red clouds enveloped all of Nebula City.
When Ling Changfeng finished his day’s work and appeared at the door of the ward, Xu Xinghe was sitting on the hospital bed, chewing his dinner.
Since he hasn’t eaten well these days and his stomach is relatively weak, those so-called “stomach-nourishing”, liquid food-like nutrients have once again become his staple food.
They’re still unpalatable to the point that he felt like there’s no more love in life.
Xu Xinghe was like a robot, numbly sending it into his mouth one spoonful at a time.
Suddenly, there was a commotion outside the ward, and then the door was pushed open with a bang.
Xu Xinghe turned his head dazedly, Ling Changfeng was wearing a neat military uniform, and stood there chest heaving slightly, as if he had hurried all the way over.
But as soon as he saw Xu Xinghe, all his impatience was instantly appeased.
The pair of mismatched pupils became very quiet again, just looking at Xu Xinghe wordlessly.
“How do you feel?” Ling Changfeng asked.
If Dean Lu Sen’s voice was so gentle at noon today that his colleagues looked over, then Marshal Ling’s voice was so gentle at the moment that everyone around him looked at him.
Xu Xinghe was still holding the spoon, but when he heard the words, he immediately put the spoon in the bowl, and pushed the unpalatable nutritional supplement far away: “I’m fine, it would be better if I didn’t have to eat this though.”
The entourage found that his commanding officer who was in a hurry just now finally slowed down.
Ling Changfeng took off his jacket unhurriedly, handed it to the secretary behind him, and disinfected his hands at the door of the ward before walking in.
Then he waved everyone else out, and told the last person to leave to close the door behind them.
He walked to the hospital bed step by step.
Glancing at the leftovers on the mobile table, he discovered he ate less than half of it.
“Not delicious?” Marshal Ling asked.
“Of course.” Xu Xinghe patted his stomach perfunctorily.
When facing the full house of doctors and nurses, he was too embarrassed to not eat – he couldn’t let a group of adults take turns persuading him.
That would be too embarrassing.
But now that the person guarding him has been replaced by Ling Changfeng, Xu Xinghe is very comfortable refusing.
Unexpectedly, Ling Changfeng shook his head.
Although his voice was much softer than usual, his words were still irrefutable.
“How can you do without eating? You can’t just rely on infusions these days—”
As he spoke, he suddenly stretched out his hand and pinched the flesh on Xu Xinghe’s face.
“You’ve lost so much weight, and have to make up for it.”
The extremely intimate gesture stunned Xu Xinghe who forgot to dodge.
When Ling Changfeng saw him shrink back, he didn’t continue chasing.
Calmly withdrawing his hand, he continued to coax: “Eat a bowl first.
If you don’t like this flavor, we can change it.
After a pause, looking at Xu Xinghe’s indifferent appearance, he said helplessly, “I’ll give you a reward after eating.”
Xu Xinghe had never heard such words coaxing him as if he was a child after graduating from elementary school.
He leaned back in dissatisfaction, pulled the quilt over him, and refused, “No, I’m tired of eating.”
A helpless smile flashed in Ling Changfeng’s eyes: “Tired of eating?”
“Of course.” Xu Xinghe leaned on the cushion and raised his hand, looked at his five fingers, and suddenly said, “I still don’t seem to have much strength in my muscles.”
The smile stopped abruptly.
Xu Xinghe seemed to sense something, and subconsciously raised his eyes to look at Ling Changfeng: “I’m talking nonsense, it’s just…”
Before he finished speaking, his hand that was stretched out in the air was suddenly held.
Xu Xinghe blinked: “What are you doing?”
Ling Changfeng held his hand in the palm of his hand, as if he was holding a treasure, and carefully turned it back and forth.
Seeing him like this, Xu Xinghe couldn’t bear to pull his hand away directly.
However, after waiting for a while, he realized Ling Changfeng had no intention of letting go.
Xu Xinghe couldn’t help asking, “Are you reading my palm?”
Ling Changfeng: “…”
Staring speechlessly at his little spouse, he finally let go of his hand.
But he made a soft “en” sound.
Xu Xinghe asked curiously: “Huh? Are you really good at fortune-telling?”
Ling Changfeng said, “I can only tell yours.”
Xu Xinghe was interested: “Then why don’t you tell me what you see.”
“Your palm says—” Ling Changfeng’s thin lips parted slightly, and his mismatched eyes slowly turned to Xu Xinghe.
“It looks like you are going to marry me for life.
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Hearing such words coming out of Ling Changfeng’s mouth is very scary.
Weird and scary.
Tinged with irrefutability.
Xu Xinghe had no choice but to give up with a dry laugh.
But before he could take that stiff smile off his face, something even scarier happened.
Ling Changfeng actually picked up the spoon in the bowl, and scooped out a spoonful of the nutritional supplement supposedly tasting like tomato and beef.
Xu Xinghe frowned and said embarrassedly, “That’s what I ate.
If you’re hungry, you can ask them to bring you a new one…”
Then he found the spoon lifted to his mouth.
Ling Changfeng: “Open your mouth.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
He thought the topic of eating was over??
