Chapter 124: Wearing Clothes
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
For the next few days, it went just as Mo Han said. He still took Xia Qingyi to and from class everyday even though he had returned to work.
The plaster on Xia Qingyi’s arm was not removed yet, so it was still a little inconvenient for her in her everyday life. During these times, Mo Han would walk to her and help her with all sorts of things without saying a word.
Just like one time, Xia Qingyi’s elbow got stuck when she was wearing her coat, and she was grimacing in pain as she used her right hand to slide her left into the sleeve. Mo Han saw it and walked over to help her wear her clothes and pull her zip, his movements fluid and meticulous. Every time he did this, Xia Qingyi would highly suspect that he had taken the wrong medicine.
Or that her brother had changed without her knowing.
Mo Han did not know what Xia Qingyi was thinking, but he still kept some time to fetch Xia Qingyi. This kept up until her plaster was removed from her right hand, and Mo Han only stopped fetching her to and from class after she had strongly objected to it and let her take public transportation to class like she had done previously.
For the weekend when the plaster was removed, Xia Qingyi decided to go shopping and buy things with a few new friends to celebrate the return of the usage of her hands.
They parted on the streets in the evening. Xia Qingyi walked on the road by herself, and when she turned her head she suddenly realized that there was a familiar figure on her right at the next street.
“Why are you here?” Xia Qingyi shouted over the passing cars across to the next street over, in disbelief that Mo Han would appear here at this time.
There was a pedestrian crossing between the two streets. Xia Qingyi ran over, thinking of crossing over to the other side, but was stopped by the red traffic light, so she had to stop and stand at where she was and smile as she waved to Mo Han on the other side.
Mo Han was wearing a neat blue suit, and was standing straight as a ramrod on the opposite side of the road, his briefcase in his hand. Amidst the crowd and passers-by, Xia Qingyi’s eyes were only on him alone.
The green light lit up, and Xia Qingyi walked over with a smile on her face.
“Why are you here?” Xia Qingyi asked again.
Mo Han rearranged the coat that had slid down her as she ran over. “The courts is nearby, I had something to discuss with the judge and to hand some files over to him.”
“Oh, then do you still have to go to the law firm?”
Mo Han looked at his watch and shook his head. “No, I hired a few new people recently, I’ll just let them handle the trivial matters. I’ll go home.”
Xia Qingyi followed Mo Han’s pace as she walked along the street. “New people? Didn’t you dislike hiring new people in the past?”
Mo Han smiled lightly. “Things change.”
“Did you drive here?”
“I did. There’s no parking lot here, I parked at the street in front. We just have to walk over there.”
Xia Qingyi smiled. “That’s great, I’ll go home with you.”
Seeing Xia Qingyi smile, Mo Han also could not help but smile as well. “Then let’s go.”
Mo Han walked a few steps, and seeing Xia Qingyi wet her lips and swallow, he looked at her. “Are you thirsty?”
Xia Qingyi glanced at him and nodded. “A little.”
“What do you want to drink?”
“Ummm… anything’s fine… perhaps something cool.”
“Let’s go there,” Mo Han saw that there was a shop selling milk tea in front, and said to Xia Qingyi beside him.
Xia Qingyi sat on the railings next to the street and shook her head. “You go. I’m tired, I want to rest here for a while.”
“Then don’t walk off, be obedient and stay here.”
Xia Qingyi nodded and shifted most of her weight onto the railings, putting one leg on top of the other as she watching Mo Han’s rear view get smaller in the distance.
Xia Qingyi wanted to laugh again. Just thinking about this person buying something for her while she waited made her feel very happy.
