Chapter 313: Chi Yang’s Suspicion
“You said before that you have healed after you had surgery on your head, but there would be occasional pain. This meant that a foreign object must be pushing against your nerve, which is the cause of the migraine. The bullet grazed your bones, meaning that there should not be bullet residue in your head. If that is the case, the only thing pushing against your nerve would be a blood clot. Understand?”
Chi Yang nodded but immediately asked again, “Do you know that I’ve had professional acupuncture work done on me, but before it was conducted, an ultra-precision scan would first need to be done on my head. After this, the acupuncture would be done with the help of a machine.”
“Those ultra-precise head scans are very damaging to the white blood cells while the effect of the acupuncture is just so-so. This was why I never did it again after three times. However, judging by the scans, I may have gotten hurt in this spot, but it indicates that the majority of where I have the blood clot is where you had inserted the needles, which is here and here. Furthermore, the spot where you inserted the needle into yesterday, which is over here, had a blood clot that even the scanner could not detect.”
“Nuannuan, you’ve never seen any of the files of my scan, so how did you know where the blood clot in my head was?”
This was a question he had wanted to ask yesterday when his little wife was helping him with the acupuncture, but the treatment had been so relaxing that he fell asleep before he managed to ask it.
This was why Chi Yang was asking so many questions like a curious cat. He thought the acupuncture technique of his little wife was really incredible and that she was so great at what she did! She was even better than an ultra-precision scanner.
However, Zhong Nuannuan stopped the massaging upon hearing Chi Yang’s words.
This… How should she answer this?
She had no idea what answer could she give for this.
Would he find it incredulous if she told him she could see the clotted blood vessel inside him?
Chi Yang did not think much of this question when he asked it. He treated it as an academic inquiry and looked at it as a topic of conversation.
However, the moment Zhong Nuannuan’s hands paused slightly while massaging him, the highly intelligent Chi Yang noticed something was wrong.
As he thought deeper about it, even if his little wife’s acupuncture skills were amazing, it would still be restricted to the use of acupuncture. How would she know where his blood clots were located?
The smart Chi Yang had detected something was not right at the very moment Zhong Nuannuan’s hands paused slightly.
However, he was not able to retract his words now that he had voiced it out. After asking the question, he added on seamlessly, “Or could it be… That these spots in the head are where the acupuncture points are located?”
Zhong Nuannuan was about to come clean to Chi Yang when she suddenly heard him say this. Thus, she immediately swallowed the words she was about to say.
“Yup. The areas where I had inserted the needles yesterday are all the acupuncture points on your head.”
This was not exactly untrue. She would not simply insert the needles if they were not acupuncture points.
With that, she continued massaging Chi Yang after saying this.
Chi Yang immediately changed the topic as well. “Do you feel tired massaging me like this?”
Nuannuan exerted quite a lot of pressure when she massaged him. She massaged him this way for half an hour, so he was worried her hands could not take it.
“I’m not tired. I’m not tired at all,” Zhong Nuannuan shook her head.
Chi Yang reached out and held the massaging hand of his little wife as he said soulfully, “Nuannuan, it’s been hard on you.”
Zhong Nuannuan looked at the large hand holding hers. She could feel the rough calluses on his palm and between his fingers. It reminded Zhong Nuannuan of her own hands before they were soaked in herbal water. She felt melancholy over those past memories while feeling heartache for Chi Yang’s suffering at the same time.
She could not help it as she lowered her head and kissed Chi Yang gently on the hand.
