Chapter 25: Buying a Whole Box

Huo Zijun was stunned!
He had thought that Xia Xibei was just talking nonsense. After all, she was only a teenager; how could she know how to prescribe medicine?
Moreover, traditional Chinese medicine was not the same as Western medicine. In Western medicine, one could try to find some pain relief on one’s own, but the checks and balances in traditional Chinese medicine were not so easily managed.
Taking medicines without knowledge could lead to deaths!
However, the combination of the medicinal materials that Xia Xibei described was extremely clever!
Huo Zijun looked at a very pale Xia Xibei with a shocked expression. “Who gave you the prescription?”
The pain in Xia Xibei’s stomach had temporarily subsided, so she had the strength to answer Huo Zijun’s question.
“I made it myself. Could you please help? Boil with three bowls of water, then simmer for half an hour, thank you.”
Huo Zijun was stunned for a moment before he let people prepare the medicinal supplies.
After giving the order, he looked at Xia Xibei, “Do you know traditional Chinese medicine?”
She didn’t look like it!
Xia Xibei was young, and if she knew Chinese medicine, why didn’t she take care of herself?
But looking at the medicine she prescribed, it was much better than the version he thought of.
The two prescriptions were not at the same level.
This really confused him.
“I understand some.” Xia Xibei gritted her teeth and then blushed again, struggling to get up.
“What are you doing getting up? Aren’t you hurt?” Qiao Yanjue pushed her back down with a dark face.
“Let go!” Xia Xibei blushed and shouted in a low voice, “I’m going to the bathroom!”
She could feel that her pants were wet.
Qiao Yanjue’s movements froze. He was rarely embarrassed.
“The bathroom is in here, but I don’t have what you want here.” Huo Zijun said with a shrug and gave Qiao Yanjue a look.
His shop has female employees, but he had given them time off for a few days.
In the end, it was all because of Qiao Yanjue.
Why did he hate women?
And given his current situation, it was not really not suitable for a woman to get close to him.
Xia Xibei’s face was still very pale, “I can buy it myself.”
“Lay back down!” Qiao Yanjue frowned and said, “I’ll get someone to buy it for you!”
Xia Xibei shook her head, “I don’t want to bother you...”
“You have already bothered me!”
Qiao Yanjue interrupted her and showed her the blood stains on his chest, “I’ll have someone go!”
After talking, he looked at his subordinates.
“...Yes, young master!”
Several tall men blushed in embarrassment.
They never had to buy these things before as men, ah!
However, after meeting Qiao Yanjue’s eyes, they did not dare to have any objections. They immediately left.
Soon, they brought the things back.
Looking at the box of sanitary napkins, Xia Xibei’s mouth twitched. She was speechless.
There were at least a few dozen packs of sanitary napkins here, for day, for night, in mesh, in cotton... everything.
There was so much; when would she use them all?
But now was not a time to refuse. Her period was coming in more than ever.
Fortunately, Huo Zijun was considerate and found a pair of pants for her.
Although the pants were a bit big, they were better than nothing.
By the time Xia Xibei changed into the pants and came out, the medicine was ready too.
Smelling the bitter scent with a hint of sweetness, Xia Xibei didn’t hesitate and readily drank the bowl of concoction.
After drinking, Xia Xibei felt a little more warmth in her cold belly, and her heart-piercing pain was finally relieved. Her complexion also improved a lot.
Huo Zijun finally found a chance to ask, “You know traditional Chinese medicine?”
“Yes.” Xia Xibei nodded.
“What are you buying these for?” He took out the medicine list that Xia Xibei had dropped earlier.
