Xia Xibei was shocked when she met Tang Luo because his face was unusually ashen.
She stepped forward to get a closer look at him, asking, “What happened to you?”
“Nothing,” Tang Luo waved his hand listlessly, quickly finding a place to sit down.
However, his appearance wasn’t convincing in the least.
“Let me have a look.”
Xia Xibei grasped his wrist without a second thought, the look on her face changing.
“I really am fine,” Tang Luo insisted, his heart skipping a beat as he instantly withdrew his hand.
Xia Xibei did not insist further but looked at him up and down with a subtle expression, a look of realization filling her eyes.
“You’ve been exercising too much,” she said.
“How did you know?” Tang Luo asked, raising his gaze in surprise.
“Haven’t I told you already? I know medicine, I’m a magical healer!”
Tang Luo was even more surprised now, exclaiming, “I thought you were joking!”
Xia Xibei laughed, “I don’t like joking. You’re exhausted because all that exercise has consumed too much of your energy.”
Tang Luo still felt a lingering fear as he thought of it, sighing, “Brother Bonan is totally insane!”
This morning at 6 o’clock, he had appeared downstairs, taking him for a morning run.
Mo Bonan had a tough physical capacity; the distance of his morning runs never less than 4 kilometers.
Although Tang Luo usually exercised too, his stamina was nothing compared to Mo Bonan’s. Towards the end, he was almost crawling back home.
And that wasn’t even the most unbearable part!
Mo Bonan thought that he was too weak and that his physique was feeble, so he took him to do other activities too.
After half a day spent like this, he felt as though he was crippled.
That was why he had called Xia Xibei for help. Otherwise, he honestly believed that Mo Bonan would force him to keep going!
“I’m dying…” Tang Luo was sprawled on the table, a look of despair on his face. “He even said that I have to run with him every day…”
As the thought occurred to him, Tang Luo fought the urge to burst into tears. This was going to kill him!
Xia Xibei shook her head in pity as she looked at Tang Luo’s pathetic state. If what he said was true, then he would be finished.
“You could just tell him that you’re busy with homework,” she suggested. “You’re still a student. If you spend all your time on sports, how will you have time for your studies?”
Tang Luo looked up abruptly, his previously dull eyes shimmering now, “Yes! That is it!”
He had almost forgotten the fact that he was just a student! Students had to prioritize their studies!
He wasn’t aiming for the Olympics anyway, so why should he expend so much energy on sports?
“I could tell him that I have a lot of schoolwork to do, and that I’m aiming for the best college!” Tang Luo’s eyes gleamed, his despair from moments ago nowhere to be seen.
The more he talked about it, the more energetic he became.
“Let’s go buy some materials! I’ve completed most of the materials that I bought earlier, so it’s time to get new ones.”
Xia Xibei was speechless, questioning, “Are you serious about buying materials? Do you still remember our collaboration?”
It took a lot of effort before one could set up a live-streaming platform.
Tang Luo was working on his own at the moment, which meant that he couldn’t be fast with his progress. How could he manage it if he was preoccupied with the materials?
“Of course I remember! But if I don’t get those materials, I won’t even have time for other things!”
Mo Bonan was a complete nutjob!
However, Tang Luo felt somewhat culpable when he thought of certain reasons that made him a nutjob.
“Alright then, let’s go. I’ll risk my life for you,” Xia Xibei shook her head helplessly.
The duo soon arrived at a bookstore.
However, before they even entered, Tang Luo’s face fell and he pulled Xia Xibei away, veering in the opposite direction.
