Chapter 27: Huo Cheng is Fierce
In his past life, Shen Wanying was also very interested in the mole on his ear. Not only did she touch it, but she also bit it ambiguously.
As he’d said, Huo Cheng’s ears were very sensitive. He simply couldn’t stand the stimulus at all. Therefore, each time it happened, it felt almost dizzying.
He walked out of the fruit garden with Shen Wanying on his back and caught sight of a few students with their backs facing him further up ahead.
“Shen Wanying, what’s wrong with you?” Ji Yao’s voice suddenly came from beside. Huo Cheng and Shen Wanying looked over at the same time.
Ji Yao was picking fruits just now. As soon as he came out of the fruit garden, he saw Huo Cheng walking over with Shen Wanying on his back.
Unexpectedly running into a fellow classmate, Shen Wanying was rather shy about Huo Cheng carrying her on his back, “I just have a sprain. I twisted my ankle in the fruit garden. Fortunately, Huo Cheng found me and carried me back.”
Ji Yao subconsciously looked for her permission, noticing that her snow-white socks were stained with mud. It seemed that she accidentally fell. He retracted his gaze and said to Huo Cheng, “You have been carrying her for so long. You should be tired. Let me carry it.”
“No need.” Huo Cheng refused indifferently. He kept carrying Shen Wanying on his back and walking forward.
Ji Yao looked at their backs and walked back behind them, holding the newly picked fruits.
Fortunately, there was no one around that had returned from the fruit garden at the base camp yet. If they had, Huo Cheng showing up with Shen Wanying on his back would’ve aroused the attention of massive crowds of students. However, one curious thought turned into another. After knowing that Shen Wanying had a foot injury, everyone would shift their focus to whether she was seriously injured or not.
Starlight Farm was a large farm, and it usually received a lot of tourists. To deal with various sudden situations, it also had an infirmary in the manor. Huo Cheng was led by the staff while he carried Shen Wanying to the infirmary.
The doctor checked Shen Wanying’s ankle before saying that her foot injury was not serious, with a little medication, it would quickly heal.
Seeing the doctor take out medicine and gauze and help Shen Wanying bandage her injured foot, Shen Wanying spoke to Huo Cheng, who was still at her side in the infirmary, “Go back to the kitchen first. We are both here so there’s only Wu Lin alone in the kitchen. It must be too busy.”
Huo Cheng didn’t seem to worry about this at all, “It’s all right, Fang Yichang will help me look after the fire.”
“…?” Shen Wanying was confused. Since when did Fang Yichang and Huo Cheng’s relationship become so good? Even help him watch the fire? “Uh, but Fang Yichang is from another class, so we can’t trouble him all the time.”
Huo Cheng sat next to Shen Wanying and watched the doctor treat her foot, “When you are done getting bandaged, I will carry you back to your room to rest then I will go to the kitchen.”
“No need ah.. It’s just a short walk, I can walk back by myself.”
The doctor who had been silent and didn’t utter any word all this time suddenly said, “Although the injury on your foot is not serious, you still have to rest your foot and try not to walk on it for two days at least.”
“Listen to the doctor.” As Huo Cheng finished his sentence, Wang Tingting appeared with Qiu Ziqing.
Huo Cheng frowned as soon as he saw them. Wang Tingting looked at Shen Wanying who was being treated and spoke this with concern, “My Lady, how is your foot? Are you okay?”
Shen Wanying smiled at her and replied, “It’s okay, just twisted.”
The doctor said again, “You can’t underestimate this sprain, no matter if it’s big or small.”
The expression on Wang Tingting’s face stiffened. Then, she smiled and apologized to Shen Wanying, “Sorry, initially I only wanted to add another dish for everyone. I didn’t expect to cause trouble and let you sustain an injury.”
Shen Wanying said, “It’s okay, but why didn’t you tell me when you left? I saw you suddenly disappeared, and my cell phone was also with you. I thought something was wrong.”
Wang Tingting maintained her smile, “Hey, I told you when I left. I said I’ll go back to put the fruit first. I’m afraid if we’d picked too much later, we couldn’t hold it. Didn’t you hear?”
Shen Wanying also smiled, “Hmm, so it’s like that… maybe I didn’t hear it.”
“Shouldn’t you confirm whether the other hears it or not?” Huo Cheng, who had not spoken before, stood up and looked at Wang Tingting with a cold face, “Leaving a friend alone by herself in a place that far away such as the fruit garden. Are you not worried about an accident happening?”
Wang Tingting didn’t expect that he would come out to question her so suddenly, and she was subconsciously dumbfounded before she started to argue, “Huo Cheng, I didn’t mean it. I thought she heard it. Besides, this is an artificial farm, not a thick forest in a deep mountain. The fruit garden also has patrolling staff, what can happen?”
“So you left your friend alone when she climbed the ladder to pick the fruit, didn’t you?” Huo Cheng’s eyes were so sharp as if it could cut in the air, “Do you have such a terrible sense of safety?”
Wang Tingting was tongue-tied for a while from the verbal attack. Huo Cheng didn’t give her a chance to refute and then asked her, “When I went to the orchard field, I didn’t see any staff who were patrolling. The staff who brought us in said that the inspections are divided into some periods. If I didn’t go to look for her when she sprained her foot, you took her phone, and she was so far away by herself, how could she come back? You tell me.”
Wang Tingting stood speechlessly. “…”
It can’t be, Huo Cheng doesn’t talk much usually, is it because he is so aggressive when he is speaking??
It turns out he talks in such a way???
Wang Tingting was embarrassed and angry because of him. Although she was wrong in this matter, to be slapped in the face like this, no one would feel good. She wanted to defend herself, yet she was stopped by Qiu Ziqing, who was standing next to her, “Tingting, Huo Cheng is right. You are wrong in this matter.”
Wang Tingting glanced at her, closed her mouth, and said nothing.
Qiu Ziqing looked at Shen Wanying and said to her, “I hope you don’t blame Tingting. She is here to apologize to you. In case you need something, you can tell us at any time.”
“No need.” Huo Cheng said coolly, and he replied with merely two simple words.
Qiu Ziqing didn’t expect him to reject their kindness so bluntly and was a little embarrassed. So, she pulled Wang Tingting out.
After leaving the infirmary, Wang Tingting complained to Qiu Ziqing with a displeased face, “Say, what kind of medicine did Shen Wanying feed to Huo Cheng? Didn’t she only sprain her foot? Why is Huo Cheng so fierce against us?”
After she finished speaking, she realized that Qiu Ziqing’s face was even uglier than hers, and she immediately changed her tone, “Let’s not mention these unhappy things anymore. I have picked a lot of strawberries in the strawberry garden. Let’s go to eat some strawberries.”
She took Qiu Ziqing back to the kitchen, only to find that her basket of strawberries which she had just brought back from the orchard field was gone.
“Where are my strawberries???”
