The men shivered as they heard Xia Xibei’s rude words.
This was the first time they had seen anyone dare to treat Qiao Yanjue like this!
Even more surprising to them was that Qiao Yanjue was not angry, but actually relieved.
If she could still talk like this, she probably had no major problem.
“Are you okay?”
“I’m okay,” Xia Xibei rolled her eyes at him. “If it weren’t for you, I would be fine!”
She just used mental energy to attract all the nearby birds.
There were dozens of birds, so they consumed a lot of her mental energy.
After she worked hard to throw down those people, she had been running out of energy.
However, this wasn’t a big problem. She would be fine after she rested for a bit.
“Alright, put me down.” She moved her hands and feet.
Qiao Yanjue replied by holding her and walking forward.
“What are you doing? Put me down!” Xia Xibe struggled, but couldn’t break free of his embrace.
Qiao Yanjue lowered his head, his handsome face very resolute. “I will take you to Lao Huo.”
“I told you, I’m fine!” Xia Xibei wished she could kick him.
Qiao Yanjue kept walking, as if he hadn’t heard her.
Xia Xibe struggled twice more before giving up.
Huo Zijun was waiting for Xia Xibei in the drugstore when the door suddenly opened. Qiao Yanjue strode inside with someone in his arms.
He was shocked, asking, “What are you doing?!”
Qiao Yanjue had gone back for a week, so why was he suddenly showing up now? Also, who was he holding?
After Huo Zijun saw clearly the girl in his arms, he understood, also becoming a little worried.
“What’s wrong with Little Xia?”
“Put me down!” Xia Xibei was a little bit mortified after seeing Huo Zijun.
Qiao Yanjue found a place to put her down gently. He turned his head and informed Huo Zijun, “Something happened just now. She may be hurt.”
Huo Zijun was startled and came up right away.
“I’m fine!” Xia Xibei, after regaining freedom, instantly shook her head.
Of course she knew how she was.
“Check her over.” Qiao Yanjue seemed unmoved, he urged Huo Zijun again.
Huo Zijun examined Xia Xibei, and after confirming that there were no injuries, he grabbed her wrist and checked the pulse carefully. “There is no major problem, but she is a little weak.”
“Weak?” Huo Zijun was confused.
“Yes. Not enough nutrition.” Huo Zijun replied.
Hearing this, Qiao Yanjue immediately looked at Xia Xibei with scolding in his eyes, “Have you not eaten properly these days?”
He had delivered food to Xia Xibei before, but when she got better, she said there was no need.
He thought at the time that since she had money, she wouldn’t treat herself badly, so he stopped sending her food.
But he didn’t think that she’d treat herself like this!
Thinking of this, Qiao Yanjue’s gaze grew darker.
Xia Xibei was speechless. “Of course I eat well!”
She hadn’t just eaten well these days, she hadn’t missed snacks either! If it were someone else, she would have gained several kilos.
She was only weak since she used too much energy just now.
Qiao Yanjue’s suspicious gaze roamed over her, he did not believe what she said.
When he held her just now, he felt she was the same weight as before.
“Give her some medicine.” Qiao Yanjue told Huo Zijun.
“Medicine?!” Xia Xibei refused right away. “I’m not sick, I don’t need medicine!”
Plus, she was a doctor too. She didn’t need other people’s prescriptions.
