Chapter 104 – The Morning After
The sun shone brightly the next day.
Su Jinbei opened her eyes and was frozen solid for the next three minutes.
She lifted the quilt, looked down and covered herself with it once more.
It really happened!
Su Jinbei looked around and slowly got up. But the soreness from last night’s strenuous physical activity made her struggle for a long time… Sh*t, it hurts so much.
After taking some time to accustom herself to the pain, Su Jinbei took her clothes – no, they were technically Zhou Shiyun’s clothes – from the chair next to her. While slipping her clothes on, she found that her ankle had already been treated and someone had applied ointment on it…
Was it Zhou Shiyun? When? She didn’t feel a thing!
Everyone else had already gotten up to go about their day. At this time, there were many villagers downstairs coming to get treated. Su Jinbei went to take a shower, tidied herself up and descended down the stairs.
“Cough, cough… J-jinbei?” Lin Qingwei was the first to notice her. He stared at her outfit, “Why are you here?”
Su Jinbei was wearing Zhou Shiyun’s shirt. The pants she was wearing were also Zhou Shiyun’s. Because the pants were too long and too big, she folded them up several times.
“I never left in the first place,” said Su Jinbei.
Everyone looked at Su Jinbei dazedly.
“So, after Senior Brother treated your injury last night, he didn’t send you back?”
They had all been fatigued and fell asleep immediately after returning to their rooms. They had no idea what happened between Zhou Shiyun and Su Jinbei, but to Lin Qingwei’s understanding of his Senior Brother, there was no way Zhou Shiyun wouldn’t send Su Jinbei back. Yet, who would have thought that not only did Su Jinbei not go back, she also slept in Zhou Shiyun’s room all night and even changed into Zhou Shiyun’s clothes the moment she woke up!
Although everyone knew that the two were a couple, it was still shocking to see the bigshot celebrity staying overnight with Dr. Zhou who was notorious in their hospital for being cold and ascetic!
God, something must have happened yesterday, no doubt about it!! Argh, I’m so excited, what do I do?!!
“Amazing, Jinbei, amazing… So-” Lin Qingwei was about to ask something but was interrupted when he instinctively felt a piercing gaze from the back of his head. He turned around and his eyes collided with Zhou Shiyun’s sharp gaze.
Lin Qingwei coughed twice and didn’t dare to ask anymore. He quickly fled to continue his work.
Su Jinbei was also aware of Zhou Shiyun’s gaze. She looked at him with a mysterious smile. Her expression made Zhou Shiyun feel strange all over.
“Baby Zhou.” Su Jinbei walked to him.
Zhou Shiyun nodded in reply. He glanced at her feet, “Are your feet okay?”
“My feet are fine.” Su Jinbei bent down and whispered in his ear, “But other places aren’t fine.”
Zhou Shiyun froze, he almost let go of the medicine bottle in his hand.
Su Jinbei yawned and slowly sat down in the seat beside him, “It aches all over…”
Zhou Shiyun’s hand wavered again.
Su Jinbei cleared her throat, leaning to his ear again, “Zhou Shiyun, tell me the truth, last night wasn’t your first time, was it?”
“No?” Su Jinbei raised her voice.
Su Jinbei tilted her head and murmured, “But it doesn’t look like it was your first time…”
Zhou Shiyun turned to face her, his eyes regarding her slightly arrogantly, “I’m a doctor.”
Su Jinbei choked, “What does this have to do with being a doctor?”
“As a doctor, I’m naturally the most knowledgeable about anatomy.”
“Heh, as I see it, you must have paid special attention to this particular area of biology. Tell me, when did you do your research? Tsk, tsk, who would have thought that you’ve already thought this far so early on.”
Zhou Shiyun’s ears flushed with red. He nudged her aside, “… Step aside, a patient’s coming over.”
Su Jinbei squinted her eyes at him, I’ll see how long you can continue pretending!
