His palm felt warm as it covered her eyes. All Qiao Nian could see was darkness.
She suddenly had a feeling that she couldn’t describe. It felt weird to her.
Before she could put a nail on it, Ye Wangchuan removed his hand and held onto her hand. There was a certain grace in his movements as he said, “Let’s go. Let her have a good rest.”
“Alright,” Ye Qichen answered unwillingly. He didn’t want to leave, but he followed Ye Wangchuan’s orders as he understood that Qiao Nian was exhausted.
Qiao Nian saw them out. However, as they were about to leave, he thought of something and asked, “Oh right, why didn’t you tell me that you were medically trained?”
Qiao Nian already anticipated that question before they were done with the surgery. Hence, she wasn’t caught off guard. She answered his question calmly, “You didn’t ask.”
Ye Wangchuan raised his eyebrows and smiled.
This answer was so straightforward. It was her style.
He didn’t ask any further. He closed the door and said, “Sleep well, then.”
Qiao Nian thought that she wouldn’t be able to sleep in a new place.
However, she slept through the night. By the time she woke up, it was already ten in the morning.
The first lesson was conducted by Shen Hui.
Qiao Nian held up her head, feeling a bit wonky after sleeping for too long. After she got up, she saw that there were a set of clothes next to her bed along with her backpack.
There was also a note.
Qiao Nian picked up the note and read it. The beautifully written words on the card said: [I’ve told the school that you won’t be attending today. Take a shower after you wake up and have a good rest.]
Even though the words looked regular, you could feel a sense of pride from them.
It must have been Ye Wangchuan.
He helped her to take time off school, after all.
Qiao Nian thought about how he carried her outside of the operation room, her emotions were roused. She immediately put down the note and took the clothes. She then went into the shower attached to the room and took a shower.
She woke up from the cold shower.
She got out after changing into a new set of clothes. However, Ye Wangchuan and the child were nowhere to be found. Qiao Nian sent him a text instead before taking her backpack and heading to school.
The second lesson was done when she reached school. It was break time.
Qiao Nian entered the classroom while carrying her backpack. Everyone fell silent when they saw her.
Everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at her.
What are they doing?
Qiao Nian thought as she frowned. However, that didn’t stop her. She only paused for a while before heading to her seat.
She put her backpack down.
Everyone unfroze and started to cheer uncontrollably.
“Qiao Nian is here!”
“Sister Nian is back.”
“Haha, I thought she wouldn’t be here today. Didn’t someone say that she was on medical leave?”
“Hehe, great that she’s here.”
Qiao Nian was speechless.
As she was about to pull out her chair to sit down, Shen Qingqing came over and held her hand with joy. She immediately asked, “Qiao Nian, do you know your results this time?”
Qiao Nian was confused.
She paused for a while as she thought. She didn’t bother with the 40 marks composition section for the language paper. Hence, she should have gotten 560 marks.
Before she answered, Shen Qingqing exclaimed to her smilingly as she tugged her clothes. “560! It’s 560!”
“You’re the school’s top scorer!”
The papers weren’t released yet. They had only heard that the teachers marked the papers overnight because of Class B’s Form Teacher’s instruction. Hence, they were able to publish the results today.
If Shen Qingqing knew that the reason why Qiao Nian lost 40 marks was that she was too lazy to write the composition, she would have gone crazy.
Liang Bowen was leaning against the wall and holding onto a basketball. He didn’t look like a nerd today. He looked like an athlete with the blue Nike sweatband on his forehead. He said, “Chen Yuan is in 12th place for the exams this time. The teachers from Class B were shocked when they saw the rankings.
“Qiao Nian, you really did it. I thought you were joking when you said that you were going to be the top scorer. I never knew that you could do it.”
He couldn’t wait for the apology from Class B.
