Chapter 243: Huggy~
Zhen Shanmei was worried. “Are you okay?”
Ning Meng waved her hand to indicate that she was fine. She was not sure what was happening either. She reckoned her body might have gone through too much cold temperature, so much so that sharp pains kept poking at her stomach, and she tried to endure the pain like she was used to doing.
In the real world, she had no biological family. She remembered that when she had appendicitis, she had to persevere and dial 120 herself to be sent to the hospital. The doctor had kept asking for her family’s signature as her heart could only beat in pain.
She had friends, but the feeling of loneliness and abandonment that arose due to the absence of family… had built her persistence in life. As she was crouching over while holding her stomach, a pair of shiny black leather shoes appeared before her.
Ning Meng was slightly stunned and lifted her head immediately. She saw worry and anxiousness plastered all over Huo Beichen’s exquisite face.
“Why did you come?”
He did not answer. It was clear that he had run over as he was out of breath. He placed his big hand over her forehead. “No fever.”
He then knelt with his left leg and their eyes met. His voice filled with concern. “Do you feel anywhere else being uncomfortable aside from your stomach?”
His caring demeanor shattered her earlier perseverance. Strangely, she wanted to burst into tears, and she opened her arms, saying in a kittenish voice, “Huggy.”
Huo Beichen froze solid.
Her peach blossom eyes which usually showed arrogance were now filled with a cloud of frailty like a helpless little animal… Exactly like the Ning Meng he had known from a few years ago. However, the Ning Meng from the past would immediately tell him should she fall sick. She would find all sorts of excuses to stick to him so that he would look after her and accompany her. But now…
Huo Beichen did not want to overthink, and he stretched his arms out to hug her.
“Are you still in pain?”
His warm hug slowly made Ning Meng feel less clingy. She felt embarrassed for inadvertently blurting out “huggy” earlier, and she tried to look for an excuse.
“Do you know why I wanted you to hug me?”
Ning Meng lifted her head. “Because when you’re in front of the one you love, your intellect and reaction will slow down. My pain has subsided because I’m hugging you~”
Before he could respond, Zhen Shanmei, who had just been fed so much dog food that she did not need dinner that day exclaimed, “Well, that’s not right.”
Zhen Shanmei retorted in complete seriousness. “If I were to follow your logic, the love of my life would be Mathematics.”
Seeing both of them blankly looking at her, Zhen Shanmei finally realized that they were in their own intimate moment, and yet, she was disrupting this atmosphere?
She laughed and waved. “Just pretend that I did not say anything. Please continue…”
Alas, the moment was over, and they both chose not to be affectionate any longer. Huo Beichen then asked, “Let’s send you to the hospital?”
Ning Meng nodded and was about to stand up when she felt her waist being held. The next thing she knew, the view in front of her had been flipped.
Huo Beichen had swept her off the floor, carrying her like a princess. Ning Meng was dumbfounded.
“I can walk by myself…”
Huo Beichen walked straight ahead, ignoring her. There were many people in the mall, and such a move would naturally attract the attention of the crowd. Ning Meng buried her head into his chest out of embarrassment. They soon arrived outside where Huo Beichen’s driver was waiting in the car with the engine still turned on. Both of them sitting behind, they headed to the nearest hospital.
“Are you still in pain?” Huo Beichen asked out of concern. Ning Meng was about to answer him when she felt the pain in her stomach subsiding and a warm liquid was oozing out of her body…
She calculated the time. Had her eldest aunt come to visit?
