Chapter 8 – Medicine is bitter, while Chief Zhan is sweet!
Under Zhan Qingchen’s “service”, Su Shi drank all the medicinal food.
Looking at the clean bottom of the bowl, she had astonishment in her eyes.
Zhan Qingchen said amusedly, “Look at your face, is it that good?”
Su Shi smiled and said, “Medicinal food is very bitter, but Chief Zhan is very sweet.”
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks burned, “You’re a flirt, you’re talking nonsense again!”
For twenty years, she had cultivated with a clear mind and had never ventured into the “red world”, so she was helpless against such honest and fiery words of love.
After calming down, Zhan Qingchen put away the bowl of soup, “Take a rest, I will continue brewing your medicine tomorrow.”
“Wait a moment.”
Su Shi pulled her back.
Zhan Qingchen’s body instantly stiffened, her expression panicked, “What, what are you doing?”
This man isn’t trying to kiss me again, is he!
In that case, should I refuse or not?
Although it didn’t feel bad being kissed by him, we had just established our relationship, wasn’t this a bit too soon?
In an instant, a million thoughts swept through her mind and her whole body couldn’t help but freeze in place.
Su Shi said, “Don’t be nervous, I just want to talk to you.”
Zhan Qingchen breathed a sigh of relief.
But a hint of inexplicable disappointment swept through her heart.
Su Shi didn’t know what was on her mind and continued, “By the way, there’s something I haven’t had a chance to tell you, but my wound has actually healed.”
Zhan Qingchen shook her head, “Don’t lie to me, I know how heavy your wounds are, and Medicine King also said that it will take at least three months of healing to completely recover.”
Seeing that she did not believe him, Su Shi simply pulled up his clothes, revealing his strong and sturdy chest.
Zhan Qingchen hurriedly covered her eyes and said incoherently, “Speak up, why did you, you, you take off your clothes? I’m not a frivolous woman like you think!”
Su Shi said helplessly, “I really didn’t lie to you, if you don’t believe me, see for yourself.”
She quietly opened her fingers and blinked her eyes to look through the cracks.
She saw his smooth and flat chest, and his wounds had disappeared, leaving not even the slightest scar.
Zhan Qingchen was a little incredulous.
Her delicate fingers touched him carefully to make sure his wound had completely healed.
“How is that possible?”
Su Shi shrugged, “Probably because I had a good constitution and recovered quickly.”
Zhan Qingchen’s heart jumped.
She knew how badly Su Shi was injured.
Being stabbed in the chest by a sharp sword and then forcibly burning his blood, it was a miracle that he survived, how could he heal so quickly?
If he had this kind of skill, he wouldn’t have lost to herself in the first place!
The only possibility is that ……
He did it on purpose!
He hid his strength from the start and didn’t fight back even when he was stabbed in the chest with a sharp sword!
“Su Shi, I hate you to death!”
Su Shi: “Huh?”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes misted up, “You idiot, why don’t you ever think of yourself? Your life is precious too!”
At this moment, the pent-up emotions completely exploded.
Zhan Qingchen threw herself into his arms and sobbed uncontrollably.
Su Shi was dumbfounded.
Unaware of the fact that the other party had regarded him as a great hero who was willing to sacrifice himself.
After a while, her sobs gradually stopped.
Zhan Qingchen raised her head, her face still streaked with tears, “Don’t do that again, I want you to live well!”
Although Su Shi was unsure, he nodded and said, “I won’t die, I must continue my love affair with Chief Zhan.”
“Flirtatious! Talking nonsense again.”
Zhan Qingchen smacked him sullenly, but was reluctant to use any strength.
The two embraced each other quietly.
The air felt warm and calm.
Only after Zhan Qingchen calmed down did she realize how intimate the two were in their position.
Her cheek was buried in Su Shi’s chest and she could clearly hear the strong and powerful heartbeat.
His hands were on her waist, and she could feel the searing heat coming from them even through her clothes.
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks were flushed and her entire body was dizzy, unable to gather any strength at all.
She was so shy, but she was reluctant to let him go.
“Su Shi, I’m ……”
At this moment, footsteps sounded outside the door.
The two separated like lightning, and Zhan Qingchen turned around, a faint blush still on her face.
Xiaoqing pushed the door open and walked in.
“Huh? Chief, you’re here too.”
Zhan Qingchen frowned and said, “Why didn’t you knock on the door?”
“I came to get the food box and didn’t know that you were also here. You ……”
“Ahem, I just came in too.”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes fluttered, “Well, hurry up and come out, don’t disturb Mr. Shu’s rest.”
Xiaoqing always felt that something was wrong.
The two walked out of the room.
Xiaoqing asked, “Chief, are you still going to brew the medicinal food yourself tomorrow?”
Zhan Qingchen shook her head and said, “There’s no need to brew it, Su Shi’s wound has already healed.”
Xiaoqing was surprised, “But I remember yesterday his wound hadn’t healed yet!”
Zhan Qingchen frowned, “How do you know that?”
Xiaoqing said, “I’ve been wiping his body all this time, so of course I can see how his wounds are healing.”
“Wiping, wiping his body?!”
Zhan Qingchen’s breath caught.
Xiaoqing said casually, “Didn’t you say you wanted me to take good care of him? He’s unconscious and no one else is allowed to know his whereabouts, so I’m the only one who can take care of him.”
“Chief doesn’t need to praise me, it’s all what I have to do. But then again, Su Shi has a very nice body ……”
Zhan Qingchen clenched her silver teeth and said coldly, “You just entered the room without knocking, you will be punished with a fine of half a year’s salary, plus one month of cleaning the hut.”
