Chapter 123: Unemotional
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Xia Qingyi did not stay at the hospital for a very long time. The doctor originally said that she could transfer to a ordinary ward for observation, but Xia Qingyi insisted that she was fine and wanted to go home and rest.
Mo Han knew that she did not like to stay in the hospital and do nothing.
Every time she walked along the hospital corridor, she would always quicken her footsteps, as though she would become better if she walked faster, that her pain would disappear immediately.
Mo Han did not stop her. He only wanted her to feel better, and did not want to see her miserable in the hospital.
When it was time to go home, Xia Qingyi sat on the bed, looked at Mo Han standing in front of her and said, “Aren’t you going to work?”
“Why?” Xia Qingyi felt suspicious, unable to understand why he was always at the ward ever since she was admitted to the hospital. Didn’t he always view his work as the most important priority? Even if she was sick, two days had passed since then, and she had already left the hospital, why was he still staying here?
“It isn’t busy at the law firm lately.” Mo Han took out the clothes Xia Qingyi had folded and packed at the hospital.
“Didn’t you say that you just received a tricky case a while ago?”
“I passed it to Barrister Liao, he can handle it properly,” It was obvious that Mo Han was not concerned about those problems. He walked to the window and pulled the half-closed curtains shut to block the blinding light from the outside.
“But… no… go back, I can handle my things myself.”
“How are you going to handle it? Using the hand that’s still wrapped in bandages?”
“I, I can. I may be slower, but I can do it properly.” Xia Qingyi raised her head to look at him.
“Just focus on resting well. I know best when it comes to my own work, I’ve already arranged properly.” It was obvious that Mo Han wanted to change the topic, and said, “What do you want to eat at night? Something light.”
“Anything’s fine, I’m not very hungry.”
Mo Han said, “I’ll cook rice later, lie on the bed and sleep first if you’re tired.”
Xia Qingyi felt shocked and uneasy at the changes in Mo Han. This made her feel that there were a lot of things about Mo Han that she was still unable to understand, and there were many things related to him that she only vaguely understood. She had always been using her own instincts to judge a lot of things.
For example, Mo Han loved to work. For example, Mo Han was unemotional.
For example… she had assumed everything about Mo Han.
“I signed you up for training lessons. After you’ve recovered, you can go and learn,” Mo Han said at the dining table.
“Female self-defense training course,” Mo Han said calmly as he took the vegetables on the table.
Xia Qingyi nearly spat out the vegetables in her mouth. “You’re not kidding?”
“No.” Mo Han had a very stern expression on his face. “I thought about it, I can’t always be by your side. If the day comes… when… that kind of situation happens, I want you to be able to protect yourself.”
Mo Han added, “I don’t want to see you in the hospital again.”
“I don’t want to see myself in the hospital too,” Xia Qingyi said weakly.
“Then learn properly.”
“But… Female self-defense is probably pretty tiring, I’d get muscle aches on my waist and legs just after one day.”
“That’s better than you staying at the hospital.”
Xia Qingyi did not want to get pushed into learning some self-defense rubbish right after getting out of the hospital. Just hearing about it made her feel numb; she could already imagine getting thrown onto the ground by the coach. It would definitely be painful.
“I swear, that kind of situation will never happen again in the future.” Xia Qingyi raised her right hand with her chopsticks and said, “Don’t make me go and learn some self-defense rubbish, I don’t even want to move right now.”
“There’s no room for discussion. I’ll take you to and fetch you back from class,” Mo Han said.
“But… I really…” Xia Qingyi still wanted to argue a bit more.
“Stop talking, eat your food, the food’s turning cold.” Mo Han was firm on this topic.
