Chapter 87: She Took Care of Chu Yan
Ye Qingran froze for a moment, feeling a little uncomfortable, but she did not panic. “I was just asking.”
Chu Yan’s steady voice carried a faint smile. “Don’t ask about it anymore in the future.”
When Ye Qingran heard that, she felt jealous all of a sudden.
Her tone was also a little sour. “Why not? Is your ex-girlfriend sour spot with you?”
Chu Yan narrowed his eyes and said slowly, “No.”
Delighted, she looked at him without showing it. “You mean, you’ve never had a girlfriend?”
Chu Yan said indifferently, “I’m not you.”
The corners of Ye Qingran’s mouth curled subconsciously. Seeing that Chu Yan’s deep eyes were staring at her, she quickly hid the smile and said as if nothing had happened, “I’m alright. I’ve only had three, four, five, six, seven, eight girlfriends.”
Chu Yan’s lips curled up at her cheekiness. “How many did you plan to have?”
She smiled evilly. “Not many, about one hundred, much fewer than the ancient emperors. They each had three thousand beauties in their harem.”
Chu Yan raised his hand as if he wanted to touch her head, but he stopped in mid-air.
Then, he coughed lightly.
He raised the glass in his other hand to take a sip of water, only to find that it was empty.
“I’ll get you more water.”
Ye Qingran took it from his hand and stood up to get some warm water.
When she came in, she saw Chu Yan had closed his eyes, his brows slightly furrowed.
He seemed to be very tired.
Ye Qingran handed the water to him and said, “Brother, I’ll let you rest. If you need anything, give me a call.”
Chu Yan said lightly. “Don’t worry. I’m fine. You should go to bed now.”
He drank the water and moved to put the glass on the bedside table.
Ye Qingran reached out subconsciously and took it from his hand.
This time, her fingers brushed his hand.
It was very cold.
Ye Qingran was a little surprised. “Why is your hand so cold?”
To be sure, she touched Chu Yan’s hand again and found it was icy cold.
She stared at his handsome face and found it was different from before. It was a little pale and he pursed her lips lightly, looking calm but it was obvious that he was enduring something.
“Brother, what’s wrong?”
Chu Yan replied in a low voice, “Nothing.”
Ye Qingran looked at him. He really did not look fine.
She reached out and touched his forehead and found was also very cold. She was worried. “Don’t lie to me. How are you feeling? If you don’t tell me, I’ll send you straight to the hospital.”
“It’s just my stomach. It’s nothing serious.” Chu Yan chuckled, not wanting her to worry.
“Do you have any medicine for that? Where do you keep it? I’ll go get it.”
“There should be some in the bedside cabinet.”
Ye Qingran immediately opened the cabinet.
She did found the medicine, but it had expired.
She picked up her phone to have it delivered to the house, but the delivery would take at least half an hour.
There was a pharmacy that was open 24 hours outside the residential area. It would only take a few minutes to go and buy it.
“Brother, lie down and get some rest. I’m going out to buy the medicine.”
“I’m really fine.”
Chu Yan did not want her to go out in the middle of the night. His face was already pale from the pain, but he still acted as if nothing had happened.
He said indifferently, “And it’s very late. You can’t… go out by yourself.”
Ye Qingran gave him two options. “Stomachache can be serious. Do you want to go to the hospital or take medicine? If you don’t take medicine, I’ll get you to the hospital.”
“There’s no need to go to the hospital.”
“Alright then, I’ll go buy you some medicine,” Ye Qingran stood up.
She knew what Chu Yan was worried about and confidently said, “Don’t worry. If someone tries to rob me, he’ll definitely be the unlucky one!”
Watching her walk out from his sight, Chu Yan realized that he was smiling despite the stinging pain in his stomach.
Today he felt different from the same day in the previous years.
In the past, he’d feel like he was lost in the desert and had to rely on his instincts to survive.
This year, he suddenly found an oasis in the desert. In the oasis, there was not only water, but also blooming flowers and rich delicacies.
He got up from the bed and walked to the window. He pulled open the curtains and looked at the road outside.
Under the dim yellow streetlights, it looked very cold and desolate. For a long time, no one or cars passed by.
His stomach hurt so much that he had to place one hand on the windowsill and press his stomach with the other.
He endured it.
However, his face was still as calm as ever.
Time ticked by.
Chu Yan looked at the clock again after a while. It had already been ten minutes.
If Ye Qingran ran to the pharmacy as she had said, she’d be back by now .
However, there was still no sign of her.
Chu Yan was a little worried. He should not have let her go out. Although the residential area was very good, he was worried that she might get into trouble…
He took out his cell phone and made a call to her.
A panting voice came from the phone. It seemed that she was running. “Brother, I just entered the residential area. I’ll be back very soon.”
Chu Yan heaved a sigh of relief.
Before long, he saw her at the end of the road. He did not return to his bed until she entered the house.
Ye Qingran came in very quickly and got another glass of warm water.
“Brother, now take the medicine.”
Chu Yan took the water and took the medicine. “Didn’t you say that it would take a few minutes? What took you so long?”
Ye Qingran smiled and said, “When I went out, I happened to run into a kidnap. I called the police, so it took me some time.”
Kidnap? Chu Yan’s heart skipped a beat when he heard that. “Don’t go out so late in the future.”
However, Ye Qingran did not agree. “When I had the stomachache, didn’t you go out and buy me painkillers? I was not worried about your safety at all.”
Chu Yan’s tone was slightly cold. “You’re different from me. I’m a man.”
Ye Qingran’s heart skipped a beat.
Chu Yan looked at her and added, “… You’re still a boy. You’re not an adult yet.”
Ye Qingran laughed. “It doesn’t matter. Besides, you’re pale and sweating from the pain. It’s serious and you must take medicine if you don’t want to go to the hospital.”
Chu Yan looked surprised.
He raised his hand and touched his forehead and found it was indeed covered in sweat.
The pain had intensified when he stood by the window just now.
“Alright, brother, let’s not be so polite.” Ye Qingran smiled. She patted him gently. “It’ll take a while for the medicine to take effect. Lie down and have a good sleep.”
Then she got up and turned off the lights. She was about to walk out when Chu Yan stopped her. “Wait.”
