Despite Xia Xibei’s refusal, Qiao Yanjue insisted on having Huo Zijun prescribe her some medication
Why wasn’t she taking care of herself when she was in such a bad state already? Was she trying to mess with her own health?!
At this moment, Qiao Yanjue completely ignored how ferocious Xia Xibei had been just a short while ago. All he could think about was that this young lady was way too stubborn, not taking her own well-being seriously.
She should be spanked!
“Alright, alright,” Huo Zijun interrupted their bickering. “No need for meds. It’s not a big deal, she’s just lacking in vigor. I don’t have any special medication for that either, so she just needs to rest well and eat more nutritious food.”
“Fine,” Qiao Yanjue said reluctantly, with no choice left but to nod.
Xia Xibei was rolling her eyes so hard at him. It was all his fault that she was lacking energy in the first place!
Besides, if this incident hadn’t come up, she would be at home by now, resting!
“By the way, what actually happened?”
After ascertaining that both Xia Xibei and Qiao Yanjue were fine, Huo Zijun began to question them about the incident.
“Nothing much, I was just trying to lure out some worms,” Qiao Yanjue explained casually, like it was just another usual occurrence.
Huo Zijun was dazed for a second but did not query further.
Sure enough, he knew that Qiao Yanjue was entangled in numerous troublesome dealings, but he was confident that he would be able to deal with them.
He just hadn’t expected Xia Xibei to be involved in it this time.
“You two really are a match!” he sighed.
“Stop!” Xia Xibei was startled, almost jumping up. “Don’t talk nonsense! What did you mean by a match? I’m simply unlucky to have known someone like this!”
She had no intention of sharing any relations with Qiao Yanjue.
He had almost gotten her into deep trouble during their first meeting.
Fine, the first time was no big deal. She had thought it was over and was done with it, but who would have thought it would happen again?!
Moreover, she knew just how much trouble the Qiaos were involved in. Imagine how hapless it would be to be in a “match” with him!
Xia Xibei made no attempt to conceal her distaste for Qiao Yanjue, so much so that Huo Zijun nearly laughed out loud.
He looked at Qiao Yanjue tauntingly, the smile on his lips getting wider and wider.
This was the very first time that Qiao Yanjue had voiced her disgust for someone so awfully!
Qiao Yanjue was regarded by countless girls in the city as the perfect man, a knight in shining armor!
With Xia Xibei, however, all he received was distaste.
Qiao Yanjue was also laughing in anger.
That was all the distaste he could take from Xia Xibei, especially with that temper of his.
But before he could say a word, Xia Xibei spoke up first.
“Huh? Where are my clothes?”
Only then did she come to her senses—the clothes that Song Jiaren had bought her were all gone!
“Yes, I was holding a few bags just now. They were full of the clothes that someone bought me!”
“Someone bought you?” Right away, Qiao Yanjue detected the hidden message in her words.
“Yes,” Xia Xibei nodded, and stood up abruptly. “Looks like I’ve dropped them somewhere. I have to go back and get them!”
She stood up so abruptly that she was overwhelmed by a wave of dizziness.
Qiao Yanjue reacted quickly by steadying her, forcing her to sit back into the chair.
“What are you so anxious for!”
Looking at how the girl didn’t mind her own body, his tone of voice became a bit harsh. “So, it turned out to be just some clothes. I was wondering what kind of treasure it would be!”
“Those are my clothes, not yours! Of course you aren’t anxious!” Xia Xibei shot him a glare. “If it wasn’t because of you, my clothes wouldn’t have been dropped at all!”
How dare he say that! It was all his fault!
“Fine, I’ll ask someone to go get them back, alright? Sit tight!”
Qiao Yanjue was wearing an awful look as he called upon one of his men.
“Go to where we were just now and bring back the clothes.”
The man nodded, immediately leaving in a hurry.
