Chapter 965: Henpecked
Wen Xinya entered the study with a tray of medicine to see that Si Yiyan was reading some documents.
Upon sight of her, Si Yiyan knew that it was time to have his bandages changed. Hence, he placed the documents aside automatically.
Wen Xinya exited with the tray of medicine and nagged. “Your wound may be trivial, but you still have to get more rest. Don’t overwork yourself.”
Although she had been monitoring his schedule and activities for the past two days, she still had to give in a little because he was extremely busy since he was Lucifer’s leader.
“Little nosy parker!” Si Yiyan pursed his lips with an icy cold gaze in his eyes. He had to listen to those words of hers several times a day. Whenever she saw him working, she would start nagging at him. Instead of feeling annoyed, he felt rather blissful to have someone show him concern all the time.
Wen Xinya immediately got displeased. “Who are you calling a nosy parker? If it weren’t because of the fact that you’re injured, I wouldn’t be bothered to care about you.”
The doctor mentioned before that Si Yiyan would suffer a relapse whenever he was not careful. Hence, she had been extremely nervous every day ever since he got injured.
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “All you do is poke your nose in my business and stop me from doing this and that. You tell me to be careful of this and that too. If you’re not being nosy, what are you?”
Staring at him, Wen Xinya gritted her teeth, though she was speechless.
Si Yiyan pulled her into his arms smilingly and bit her ear gently. He said softly, “I heard a new word yesterday and I quite like it.”
Wen Xinya asked curiously, “What is it?”
Si Yiyan bit her ear and answered, “Henpecked!”
During a Lucifer gathering last night, Yueze called him and got him to go over, after which he turned him down and said, “There’s alcohol at the gathering. I’m still injured. I’m henpecked and your Sis-in-law is a strict wife!”
Although he sounded self-righteous, Yueze was amused by it and he laughed uncontrollably.
Upon hearing her words, Wen Xinya burst into laughter and exclaimed, “Good that you know!”
Si Yiyan had an exceptionally glib tongue and he would even avoid disgusting and lewd sweet nothings.
Si Yiyan said softly, “Let me see the wound on your arm.”
Wen Xinya refuted. “You’d better not. I’ve already applied some ointment and it doesn’t hurt anymore.”
She was clearly there to help him apply medicine on his wound and yet, he ended up getting worried about her instead. Her wound was really not severe at all and it had already healed after being disinfected and two days worth of medication. However, it still looked daunting because of the mark it left behind on her delicate skin.
Si Yiyan answered softly, “Good!”
While talking, he lifted her sleeve to see that there was a thin bandage wrapped around her arm. He unwrapped it and saw that the swelling had already gone down. A scab had already formed over the welt and her skin looked badly ruptured.
Wen Xinya said, “The doctor said that there will be no scars if I take care of it carefully.”
She knew that Si Yiyan’s heart was aching because of the fact that the tender skin of hers which he treasured, was now damaged.
Si Yiyan pursed his lips and remained silent with an icy cold gaze in his eyes.
Wen Xinya said softly, “I’ll help you apply some medicine.”
Wen Xinya lifted up his sleeve slowly to reveal his bandaged wound. She carefully removed the bandage which was stained with blood. However, she heaved a sigh of relief because there were no longer any major issues.
While disinfecting his wound carefully, Wen Xinya asked softly, “Does it hurt?”
Shaking his head, Si Yiyan answered, “It doesn’t.”
Wen Xinya blew some air on his wound and rolled her eyes. “I knew you would say that. Your skin is suffering.”
Si Yiyan laughed again.
Wen Xinya scrutinized his wound and applied the medicine carefully. “Your wound is healing well.”
The pain seemed to slowly disappear. “It’s because you did a good job at taking care of me, Milady.”
Actually, she had been taking care of him meticulously throughout the past two days and she would remember to apply medicine for him every night and day. She would also feed him with nourishing herbal soups.
Wen Xinya had already gotten used to hearing him address that way and she would roll her eyes at him whenever he did that. She felt that it was way too old-fashioned compared to other endearing terms like “Darling” or “Wifey”.
However, she knew that Si Yiyan liked addressing her that way because of a reason.
“Milady” signified that she was his.
Si Yiyan watched as she carefully wrapped his wound in gauze.
Wen Xinya looked up and said, “Yan, this is the third time.”
It was his third time risking his life for her.
She would always remember it.
Having understood what she meant , he said softly, “I remember too. It’s the third time.”
It was the third time that he had failed to protect her and allowed her to get hurt.
To him, it was considered failure and a shame.
Wen Xinya’s eyes widened in shock and she was at a sudden loss for words. Her throat became dry and she was overwhelmed by the thirst. “Silly.”
Si Yiyan stared at her hazy and beautiful eyes that were watery and glistening like crystals.
At this moment, someone knocked on the door.
Si Yiyan asked with a frown, “What’s the matter?”
“Duke Moville is here with Miss Avrora. They’re waiting for you in the living room.”
Wen Xinya glanced at Si Yiyan and thought to herself,
With a sullen expression on his face, Si Yiyan said, “Come meet Duke Moville together with me.”
Wen Xinya gladly agreed.
