Chapter 44: Sick — My immunity is very good.
Yes, doctor…he actually forgot that he was a doctor.
Ji Zhe Yan smiled mockingly at himself even as he lifted Ye Zhen Zhen up from the sofa. “You should change clothes first.”
Ye Zhen Zhen leaned against his body, her demeanor as soft as fine silk. “Dr. Ji, I don’t have the energy. Help me change.”
Ji Zhe Yan pursed his lips and carried her to the bedroom. After placing Ye Zhen Zhen onto the bed, he pulled a pair of night clothes from his wardrobe and placed it beside her. “Hurry and change. I’ll grab you some medicine.”
“Okay.” Ji Zhe Yan’s solemn expression had a great deterring effect, so Ye Zhen Zhen began undressing obediently. Ji Zhe Yan froze for a moment before leaving hastily.
He only kept simple fever reducers at home, so he returned to the bedroom with a glass of warm grape syrup. Ye Zhen Zhen had already changed clothes and was laying crookedly on bed. Ji Zhe Yan set down the cup of warm water and helped her sit up. “Drink your medicine first before sleeping again.”
“Mn…” Ye Zhen Zhen dazedly agreed, but her eyes remained closed.
Ye Zhen Zhen opened her mouth as directed and caught the pill placed into her mouth, a taste of bitterness spreading within.
Something small was placed against her mouth, so Ye Zhen Zhen subconsciously took a sip and swallowed it down with the medicine.
Ji Zhe Yan was still not satisfied though. “Drink all the water.”
“Wu…” Ye Zhen Zhen didn’t want to, but Ji Zhe Yan repeated his words right against her ear. With no other choice, Ye Zhen Zhen noisily drank the rest of the water.
Ji Zhe Yan set down the empty glass on the nightstand and helped Ye Zhen Zhen lie back down in bed. After covering her with a blanket, he pressed a thermometer against her armpit before furrowing his brows and walking away.
He soon returned with an ice bag in hand. Provoked by the cold compress against her forehead, Ye Zhen Zhen’s eyelashes fluttered open, allowing her to catch sight of Ji Zhe Yan sitting by her bed and thus fell asleep with her mind at rest. Ji Zhe Yan removed the thermometer and took a look—38.7℃.
Brows furrowing again, he glanced at the person laying in bed and wiped the thermometer clean before settling down to keep watch.
Ye Zhen Zhen slept until nine in the evening and woke up hungry.
Ji Zhe Yan was still sitting beside her, and when he saw her wake, he promptly stuck the thermometer into her mouth and then took it out—37.8℃, still a low fever.
“Dr. Ji…” Ye Zhen Zhen called out miserably. Ji Zhe Yan set down the thermometer and focused his gaze on her. “I don’t see you for a day, and this is how you ended up?”
“Sorry…” Tears were already pooling in Ye Zhen Zhen’s eyes. Her wronged expression immediately softened Ji Zhe Yan’s heart.
“Drink water, then eat.”
Ye Zhen Zhen turned to look. A glass of water and a bowl of plain congee had been placed on the nightstand, the food still steaming. She gasped and wanted to sit up, but her arms held no strength, leaving her helpless. How could she sit up? Ji Zhe Yan sighed and moved to help her.
Ye Zhen Zhen leaned against Ji Zhe Yan’s chest and blinked up at him. “Dr. Ji…”
“Quiet, drink water.”
Ye Zhen Zhen pouted her chapped lips yet drank the water anyway. Ji Zhe Yan set down the glass and then lifted the bowl of congee to feed Ye Zhen Zhen. Ye Zhen Zhen was very compliant the entire time up until Ji Zhe Yan helped her lie back down. When he was about to leave, she grabbed his hand. “Dr. Ji, don’t be angry with me, okay?”
Ye Zhen Zhen’s voice barely concealed a sob. When Ji Zhe Yan turned his head, the blanket was already stained with tears.
Ji Zhe Yan’s heart felt as if something had pinched it. He truly could not bear to see Ye Zhen Zhen’s tears. “Why are you crying?” He knelt down beside the bed and leaned down to kiss away her tears.
Ye Zhen Zhen sobbed and said, “I, I sent you a message, but you ignored me…”
Ji Zhe Yan furrowed his brows slightly before lovingly pressing a kiss to the corner of her mouth. “Sorry, I’m not angry with you…” Ji Zhe Yan felt a bit annoyed with himself, as he had unexpectedly done such a childish thing.
Ye Zhen Zhen struck while the iron was hot and looped her arms around Ji Zhe Yan’s neck. “Dr. Ji, I had a nightmare today too. Sleep together with me tonight, okay?”
Ji Zhe Yan blanked out for a moment, the corners of his lips raising faintly into a smile. “Okay…” The words barely left his lips before they descended to capture Ye Zhen Zhen’s lips.
Ye Zhen Zhen was mystified by the kiss before suddenly recalling something. She turned her head to avoid Ji Zhe Yan’s kiss.
“What’s up?” Ji Zhe Yan discontentedly nibbled at the corner of her mouth.
“Dr. Ji, will I infect you?”
Ji Zhe Yan laughed and pressed a kiss to her lips again. “My immunity is very good.”
A long kiss later, Ye Zhen Zhen felt almost giddy. Ji Zhe Yan gasped for breath before laying down beside her. “Alright, quickly go to sleep.”
“Mn.” Ye Zhen Zhen hugged his waist and nuzzled his chest, looking up at him with large eyes.
Ji Zhe Yan felt a bit helpless. “Ye Zhen Zhen, close your eyes.”
Ye Zhen Zhen’s lashes trembled, but her eyes closed reluctantly. Once the breathing of the person in his arms evened out, Ji Zhe Yan turned off the lamp and pressed a kiss to her bright, clean forehead. “Good night.”
Perhaps it was because she had slept a lot the day before that made Ye Zhen Zhen wake up when the sky was just beginning to brighten. Ji Zhe Yan was still sleeping, so she turned to admire him for some time before she couldn’t help but press a kiss to the corner of his mouth.
The sleeping Ji Zhe Yan resembled a male sleeping beauty. The visage simply made the wolf’s blood within a person boil.
Her hair swept against Ji Zhe Yan’s cheek, which felt somewhat ticklish. Ji Zhe Yan’s eyes twitched, awakening. When he opened his eyes, he saw Ye Zhen Zhen looking at him with gleaming eyes. Ji Zhe Yan smiled and brushed aside her bangs to test her temperature. “Mn, the fever has already retreated.
The morning light outlined his form in a soft hazy glow. With such little distance between them, she could even see his eyelashes flutter. Ye Zhen Zhen’s face suddenly burned.
Ji Zhe Yan saw her flushed cheeks and chuckled lowly against her forehead. “So, even you can be shy.”
Ye Zhen Zhen’s face became even hotter. Appearing strong yet actually being weak, she said, “It’s not because Dr. Ji is too good-looking!”
Ji Zhe Yan’s lips curved even more. He kissed the tip of Ye Zhen Zhen’s nose, his smile evident even in his voice. “Not as good-looking as Gou Dan’er.”
Look, pinched and whipped again.
After resting at home for a day, Ye Zhen Zhen’s body had basically recovered, but that dream in the park from that afternoon still disturbed her. She told Ji Zhe Yan about her dream. He said it might have been influenced by the hypnosis and for her to ask Dr. Zhang next time. Ye Zhen Zhen nodded. If this dream was a true memory of hers, then she should tell Officer Zuo as well. Perhaps it would help in discovering her identity.
On the table, her phone vibrated. She glanced at the 10086 displayed on the screen before sneakily opening the message.
「Ye Zhen Zhen, Gan Zhe said to meet up at school at ten in the morning. Can you find the work room? Well, I’ll be waiting at the school gate for you.」
Ye Zhen Zhen glanced at Ji Zhe Yan, who was cooking in the kitchen, and then quickly replied: 「No need, I can find it.」
Xi Cao saw these six simple words and felt his heart drop in disappointment.
Ye Zhen Zhen uneasily deleted the other person’s message after replying. During breakfast, she softly expressed that she had to go to school tomorrow. Although Ji Zhe Yan smiled and agreed, Ye Zhen Zhen kept thinking that it wasn’t so simple.
Although it happened to be summer vacation, there were still many students who remained at school. After Ye Zhen Zhen arrived at the art institute, she randomly asked a student for directions and found the work room. The third floor was extremely quiet, without a single person in sight. Ye Zhen Zhen subconsciously lightened her footsteps.
Following the numbers until she reached the doorway to classroom 3, she saw a wooden sign hanging from it. Written on it with a colored pen was: 『Tian Tian’s Studio』. Drawn on the side was an ice cream. Ye Zhen Zhen’s lips raised slightly at this as she pushed open the unlocked door and entered.
She then saw…
Mei Li pressing Gan Tian down, one hand covering her mouth.
Ye Zhen Zhen covered her eyes and ran out.
Soon after, Gan Tian chased after her and quickly called out to Ye Zhen Zhen, “Cutie!”
Ye Zhen Zhen braced herself and walked back. Gan Tian’s cheeks were flushed. She tidied up her clothes while flashing Ye Zhen Zhen a smile.
Ye Zhen Zhen gaped, her voice taut. “You and Mei Li…are…”
“He is my boyfriend.” Gan Tian buttoned up her blouse and blinked rapidly.
Ye Zhen Zhen awkwardly said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know you two were…” in the middle of something.
“It’s fine.” Gan Tian pulled Ye Zhen Zhen inside after she said this, but Ye Zhen Zhen didn’t budge. “What’s wrong?” She turned her head and sent Ye Zhen Zhen a puzzled look.
“Wait, wait a minute.” She still didn’t know how to face Mei Li. The two of them stood in the hallway for a while before Ye Zhen Zhen suddenly said, “Tian Tian…”
“Is something up?” Gan Tian pressed a hand against her cheek as she looked at her.
“Actually, there is. It’s bothered me for a long time.” Ye Zhen Zhen’s expression was abnormally grave.
Gan Tian’s refined brows wrinkled, but she flowed with the heavy atmosphere. “What’s the problem?”
Ye Zhen Zhen’s complexion subtly reddened. She then lowered her voice and asked, “Just that, if…I am saying if, if you and a boy lived together, and he is awfully good to you yet doesn’t want to…sleep together with you, why is that?”
Gan Tian opened her eyes wide in shock. “Cutie, are you living with someone?!”
“No, no, I’m saying if!” Ye Zhen Zhen’s face was as dark as a drop of blood.
Gan Tian cackled maliciously and moved close to her, saying, “You’re either still not attractive enough for him, or he is frigid.”
Dr. Ji said that he was not frigid, so was she really not attractive enough? Yingyingying. 1
Gan Tian saw her expression and smirked. “I don’t know how to treat frigidity, but if you’re not attractive enough, then I have a lot of techniques.”
Gan Tian smiled and grabbed her arm. “Cutie, are you free tomorrow? Let’s choose a battle armor.”
“Battle armor?” Like Sailor Moon?
“Trust me, men have the sight of an animal. Cutie, you’re so cute, so this will definitely make him immediately lose control!”
“No, I’m just saying if, it’s not me!”
“Hahahaha really so cute, changing into battle armor will definitely awaken a man’s wolf nature.”
Ye Zhen Zhen: “…”
She really shouldn’t have consulted this person on this type of matter.
Especially expressing thanks:
Thank you, you two great tyrants, muah~! QAQ
The story seems to be developing in a strange direction _(:з」∠)_
I hope Dr. Ji can hold onto his chastity. =..=
