Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
After dealing with Qiao Yanjue, Xia Xibei felt tired and fell asleep.
By the time she woke up, it was already after three in the afternoon.
She was shocked upon seeing the time.
It was already the second period!
She had originally wanted to ask for a day off, but she was supposed to meet with Song Jiaren today. If she didn’t show up, wouldn’t Song Jiaren be angry?
So, after she cleaned up, she got up from the bed.
As soon as she did, Qiao Yanjue came in.
“What are you doing?”
“Going back to school.” Xia Xibei stroked her belly; she was already feeling much better.
Although she hurt a little bit, it was much better than before, and she could move.
“You can’t get the day off?”
Qiao Yanjue looked at her disapprovingly. Why was she even going to school now?
“I have something to do.” Xia Xibei casually replied. “Okay, I’m leaving now.”
“I’ll take you there.”
Qiao Yanjue’s words stunned her. “You’ll take me there?”
“Why, are you scared?”
“What won’t I dare? You will not eat me.”
Although today’s Qiao Yanjue was very strange, and she couldn’t see his usual dominance and arrogance as Master Jue, Xia Xibei did not doubt his character.
“Follow me.” Qiao Yanjue showed a hint of a smile.
Xia Xibei shrugged and followed.
Huo Zijun came out, handing over a large package of medicinal ingredients. . “These are the medicinal ingredients you wanted.”
“Thanks. How much are they?” Xia Xibei asked.
Huo Zijun looked at Qiao Yanjue before Xia Xibei could refuse. “This Mr. Qiao next to you is very rich. These are his medical expenses.”
Xia Xibei was stunned; she kept feeling as if she had overlooked something.
But she didn’t think too much. She took the medicinal ingredients and nodded at Qiao Yanjue. “Thank you.”
It was rare to hear such kind words from Xia Xibei, and Qiao Yanjue could not react for a while.
“You’re welcome.” Qiao Yanjue coughed and took over the medicinal package in Xia Xibei’s hand. “I’ll carry it for you.”
Xia Xibei couldn’t help raising her eyebrows upon looking at her empty arms.
She didn’t expect that Qiao Yanjue could be quite warm!
After getting in the car, Xia Xibei frowned, “Why did you get in the car? Shouldn’t you be resting?”
“Didn’t I say I was taking you?”
“I thought you were talking about making your driver take me.”
Qiao Yanjue glanced at her and sat in the back seat. “Why can’t I go?”
Xia Xibei stared at him wordlessly for a long time and finally nodded in resignation. “If you want to come along, fine!”
She sat on the side, far away from Qiao Yanjue.
On the way, the driver suddenly lurched to the right, and Xia Xibei went directly into Qiao Yanjue’s arms!
“Sorry, a car rushed out suddenly!” The driver was also in shock.
Qiao Yanjue said coldly, his expression unchanging, as if the warmth in his arms did not exist.
“Yes!” The driver wiped off some cold sweat.
Xia Xibei sat up in Qiao Yanjue’s arms. She looked at him, frowned, and said, “Don’t smoke anymore.”
Although the smell of cigarettes on his body was very light, Xia Xibei still disliked it.
“I can’t smoke? Or you just don’t like it?”
Thinking of the lighter Xia Xibei threw away when she rescued him, Qiao Yanjue felt that he understood something.
“I hate the smell of cigarettes! And not smoking is good for your health.” Xia Xibei said, wrinkling her petite nose.
“Alright.” Qiao Yanjue nodded.
He agreed so readily that Xia Xibei was a little surprised.
She had thought he would argue with her.
Qiao Yanjue glanced at her. He was not a fool; of course he knew she wanted this for his own good.
Moreover, he didn’t have a strong addiction to cigarettes. He only occasionally smoked a cigarette or two.
If Xia Xibei said he shouldn’t smoke, then he might as well quit.
