Rong Yu saw that Gu Qingchen was really angry, so he put away his indifferent expression. Finally, he could no longer hold it in. “Doctor Gu, do you have any way to stop the pain?”
Because of his injuries today, the poison in his body had flared up even more violently than usual. Normally, he would use the agarwood bathtub to relieve the pain every day, but he was stuck in the wilderness now. He endured the pain for a long time, and the pain became more and more severe. It was not the time to act tough.
Hearing this, Gu Qingchen immediately lost her temper. She took out the silver needle bag in her hand and took out a silver needle. After a moment of hesitation, she pierced it into Rong Yu’s acupuncture points.
She had sealed Rong Yu’s pain nerves for a short period, but this would have a small sequela. If it was sealed for too long, the pain would be even worse after the acupuncture points recovered.
Fortunately, she knew a set of massage techniques to relieve the meridians. As long as she unblocked the meridians in Rong Yu’s body after the acupoints recovered, Rong Yu would not be in too much pain.
However, she would be busy tonight.
After sealing the pain nerves, Rong Yu was relieved. His whole body was not as tense as before. His expression was much more relaxed, but there was a thin layer of cold sweat on his head, which was caused by the pain.
It had to be said that Rong Yu was really good at enduring pain!
After putting away the silver needles, Gu Qingchen looked at Rong Yu and said, “I want to dredge your meridians. Otherwise, once the effect of the needles wears off, the pain will be even more intense.”
Rong Yu nodded and looked deeply at Gu Qingchen. “Then I’ll have to trouble you.”
Gu Qingchen did not care about having a close interaction with Rong Yu. Now that Rong Yu’s health was more important, she could not be bothered to be shy.
She started with Rong Yu’s legs. Because the source of all of Rong Yu’s pain was these legs, the first thing she needed to untangle was his legs.
Rong Yu leaned against the rock and slightly raised his neck. Gu Qingchen’s coat was draped over his back, exposing his front chest. The flames flickered and danced, giving him an indescribable temptation.
He looked at Gu Qingchen again. She was wearing his wide shirt and squatting there. Her pair of slender fingers were caressing his legs.
She controlled her strength very well. Rong Yu felt very comfortable. He closed his eyes and rested.
Gu Qingchen was smoothing out Rong Yu’s meridians while she finally calmed down to think.
Other than thinking about today’s matter, she was also thinking about a very serious matter.
She could not swim, so why did she suddenly know how to swim.
She did not believe that people would suddenly know how to swim when they were about to drown. If that was the case, there would be no drowning people in this world.
Moreover, Gu Qingchen noticed something. It was as if her body had reached its limit and suddenly activated her hidden potential. It was as if she knew how to swim from the beginning. Otherwise, how could a person who had just learned how to bring an unconscious person ashore?
All of this did not seem to make sense. She tried hard to recall and was very sure that she did not know how to swim. However, she had done something impossible today.
Just as Gu Qingchen was engrossed in her thoughts, she heard Rong Yu’s voice ringing in her ears. Rong Yu’s breath was blowing into her ears. Gu Qingchen was shocked. The moment she turned her head, her red lips brushed past Rong Yu’s lips. It was so fast that they separated in an instant. Suddenly, Gu Qingchen’s face turned red and she subconsciously sat back.
“You… why are you so close to me!”
At this moment, Gu Qingchen was very embarrassed. Although Rong Yu was too close to her just now, she accidentally kissed her when she turned her head. It was really… too awkward.
Rong Yu seemed to be stunned as well. The coat that was originally draped over his body fell off naturally. He was just half-naked with a slightly dazed expression. It was obvious that he was stunned by her kiss.
After a long while, Rong Yu said, “I want to ask, you can’t swim, right? How did we get ashore?”
Gu Qingchen was slightly embarrassed. Seeing that Rong Yu did not pursue the matter of the kiss, she immediately heaved a sigh of relief. However, when she heard Rong Yu’s question, her heart tightened again.
“It’s true that I don’t know how to swim. Perhaps my will to survive was too strong in an emergency.”
Gu Qingchen also did not understand this point. Perhaps this was the only way to explain it, even though it was not a solid explanation.
When Rong Yu heard it, he frowned and pondered for a long time. No one knew what he was thinking. Then, he took a deep look at Gu Qingchen and slowly said, “Doctor Gu, you just kissed me.”
Gu Qingchen initially thought that Rong Yu did not intend to bring up this matter, but she did not expect Rong Yu to bring it up so directly.
Gu Qingchen opened her mouth, thought for a moment, and then closed it. Then, she opened her mouth again, not knowing how to say it. After a long while, she lowered her head and said, “Yes.”
Because she lowered her head, she missed the faint smile on Rong Yu’s lips.
Were there so many coincidental kissing methods in the world?
Hehe, what kind of joke was that? Of course not. Those coincidences were all intentional! Looking at the red face of Gu Qingchen, Rong Yu was in a great mood. He really should thank Rong Rui. Otherwise, how could he and Gu Qingchen have such a… special opportunity to get along.
“Yes.” Rong Yu did not say anything. He only said one word, but his ending was so long that no one could understand what he meant.
Gu Qingchen looked up slightly and saw the meaningful look in Rong Yu’s eyes. For some reason, she suddenly remembered Rong Yu’s kiss and his words this morning.
I, Rong Yu, don’t like to be at a disadvantage. I will take it back the way I took it.
Did that kiss just now meant that Rong Yu was at a disadvantage? Did It mean that he would take it back?
Thinking of this, Gu Qingchen quickly rubbed her face to clear her mind. She said seriously, “Don’t talk so close to me in the future. It’s fortunate that I’m a doctor and not a boxer.”
If she was a boxer, it would be really interesting if she reflexively punched him.
Rong Yu raised his eyebrows slightly and said slowly, “So… what Doctor Gu means is that this is my fault?”
Gu Qingchen clenched her fists and coughed lightly, “I don’t want to talk about it anymore. Just be more careful next time. Lie down properly, I still have to continue.”
Rong Yu smiled and picked up his coat that had slipped on the ground again. He put it behind his back and leaned against the rock. He returned to his previous position and said unhurriedly, “I’m lying down now, you can continue.”
Cough! Cough! Cough!
Gu Qingchen’s face was burning. Why did today’s conversation sound so wrong?
Gu Qingchen shook off the dirty thoughts in her mind and continued to dredge Rong Yu’s meridians. However, the redness on her face did not disappear.
Rong Yu, who was leaning against the stone, was silent. A flowing light flashed in his smile.
Gu Qingchen was still young, so he was not in a hurry. He was determined that Gu Qingchen would be his woman! What he needed to do now was to lure this cute girl into his arms bit by bit.
