Xia Xibei fell silent in the face of Qiao Yanjue’s query.
She spoke eventually, her voice sounding slightly downhearted.
“The debt and owing between us have been cleared.”
She did save him, but she took his knife and lighter in turn. That was enough.
Qiao Yanjue’s face turned cold. “So you’re saying that my life is only worth a knife and a lighter?”
He couldn’t bear with it, even if he wasn’t a narcissistic man!
Xia Xibei: “…”
Xia Xibei did not speak a word, but everyone knew what she meant from the way she behaved.
Qiao Yanjue wasn’t sure how he should react anymore.
Having lived for more than twenty years, this was the very first time he was given a cold shoulder!
Was his life that worthless?
“Alright, the previous matter is over and done with. What about this time?” He took in a deep breath before asking.
“This time?” Xia Xibei looked at him, surprised. She was clueless about what he meant.
Qiao Yanjue rolled up his shirt, exposing his flat belly and the wound on it from which blood was seeping out.
“My wound cracked open when I carried you inside just now. What do you think?”
Huo Zijun’s lips twitched. Even if the wound cracked open again indeed, it wouldn’t be that serious, rightwas it?
However, he did not speak up as he watched the drama with great interest instead.
He was thinking to himself, he was definitely going to share this incident when he met with the others later.
This side of Qiao Yanjue was far too rare!
Although he kept a straight face, Huo Zijun could see that he was going crazy.
Xia Xibei looked at Qiao Yanjue’s wound and said with a frown, “I’ll prescribe you with some medicines, you’ll be alright very soon.”
Once he got well, there would be no more interaction between them.
Qiao Yanjue heard the overtone of her words, and the fire of anger burned even more vigorously in him.
“Is your gratitude that cheap?”
“When I saved your life back then, I didn’t ask for a lot in return!” Xia Xibei replied unhappily.
“You made the request yourself. Now that I helped you, my request is different from yours.”
Xia Xibei’s face darkened;, she began doubting Qiao Yanjue’s identity again.
This surely wasn’t the Master Jue whom everyone revered! How was he so petty!
“What do you want then?” She asked with her teeth gritted.
“I just want you to remember that you owe me once.”
Qiao Yanjue finally smiled when he saw her attitude soften.
“I don’t have money!” Xia Xibei blurted out with a dark face.
“That’s fine, I have money, I don’t need you to give me money.”
Looking at Qiao Yanjue’s smile, she had to fight back the urge to toss the pants in her hand at him!
How could he be so shameless?!
Huo Zijun, who was watching the drama at the side, coughed softly, breaking off the heated confrontation between them.
He looked over at Xia Xibei. “You said that you were going to prescribe him with medicines, what medicines do you think should be used then? He’s going back in a few days; it is best if he could make a full recovery before that.”
“Going back?” Xia Xibei’s eyes lit up. “In a few days’ time?”
Qiao Yanjue’s cheerful mood dipped down once again when he saw how excited she looked.
Was she happy because he was leaving?
He felt his own hands itch. He wanted to squeeze her face so bad, so he didn’t have to see her annoying look of excitement.
Huo Zijun noticed Xia Xibei’s repulsion toward Qiao Yanjue as well. He coughed a few times and concealed the smile on his lips.
Only then did he speak, “He could stay here up to a week at most?”
Xia Xibei’s eyes grew even brighter.
Qiao Yanjue felt even gloomier. .
He was bewildered. What kind of love and hate did he have with this little girl that made her so reluctant to be with him?
“He could make a full recovery in one week if there aren’t any unforeseen circumstances.”
Luckily, Xia Xibei remembered what was most important.
