Chapter 189: Dry Bath
The old man was pleased. He liked kids who were polite. The old man ushered the two into the room and even pulled back the blanket for them. Mo Li thanked him further. The old man laughed. “There’s no need to thank me. You should hurry up and rest. I’ll be in the house next door. If you need me, just come find me. Treat this place as your own house!”
Click! The front door closed as the old man went out. Mo Li and Quan Yu were left in the room. They looked at each other, one with interest, the other with helplessness.
After some time, Quan Yu burst out laughing, “Hmm, does this count as our wedding night?” He approached Mo Li. The rain evaporated from the heater in the room. Mo Li’s cheeks blushed as the vapors with Quan Yu’s scent hit her.
Everything in the room was red, including Mo Li’s face.
“Erm, first, the old grandpa has done all these for his son so we mustn’t ruin it; second, we are not married so how can this be a wedding night?”
Quan Yu raised his brows at Mo Li’s words. Quan Yu narrowed his bright black eyes and the corners of his lips curled into a faint mischievous smile. “Miss Mo Li, why are you so serious all of a sudden? Is it because you’re nervous?”
Quan Yu had hit the nail on its head. Mo Li also had no idea why she was so nervous. In any case, she calmed her beating heart and tried to answer with an expressionless face. “Who said I was nervous? I just didn’t want to ruin the grandpa’s kind gesture for his son.” Then she stood up and looked around. She sighed. How am I supposed to survive this night?
When she turned around, her eyes widened. “Hey, what are you doing?!”
“First, my name is not Hey, it’s Quan Yu.” Quan Yu chuckled mischievously. “Second, I’m undressing. Isn’t that plain to see?” Quan Yu glanced at her. Because of the rain, his clothes stuck uncomfortably to his body. Quan Yu removed his shirt and tossed it to the side. To Mo Li’s surprise, the man wasn’t as lean as she thought. Looks like he works out often.
Even though the house had electricity, the lights were all pink and red from the shades. The atmosphere was seductive and suggestive.
Mo Li rolled her eyes at the half-naked hooligan. But then her eyes caught onto something. The next second, Mo Li hurried over to hold Quan Yu. “My God, you’re burning up!” She placed her hand on his forehead. “That’s at least 38 degrees! Why didn’t you say anything? If you burn your brain out, your family is going to kill me!” Mo Li was really worried for him. Due to his weak constitution, a simple fever might affect the rest of his body. It could lead to organ failure. But the man was still treating this like a joke.
Quan Yu chuckled seeing how concerned Mo Li was. He coughed. “It’ll be fine. I’ll sleep under the cover and sweat it out. I’ll be fine in the morning.”
Quan Yu pulled Mo Li under the cover and hugged her greedily, trying to warm himself with her body temperature. Mo Li was too worried to think about anything else. Even under the cover, Quan Yu’s body was still shivering. He was curled up like a shrimp. Energy was draining from his body.
Quan Yu always appeared as steady as a rock around Mo Li. Now that he was in this state, Mo Li was honestly quite flustered.
Mo Li unfurled herself from the bed and went to find some alcohol around the house. She wiped down Quan Yu’s body. Mo Li gave Quan Yu a dry bath to help his blood circulation.
She carefully massaged his major arteries like under his armpits, above his groin and so on. Then she placed a warm towel on his forehead.
“What, what are you people doing? This is a private residence! You are trespassing!”
