The moment he saw Ning Junyan turn around and leave, Chen Yuncheng was slightly at a loss. He didn’t know what Ning Junyan meant by doing that, and he didn’t know if he should just leave. After hesitating for a moment, he chose to follow Ning Junyan in the direction he had left.
He didn’t stop Ning Junyan, and when he walked to the nurse’s station, he saw Ning Junyan follow the young doctor into a ward.
Chen Yuncheng walked to the door of the ward and saw Ning Junyan standing beside a hospital bed, examining the wound of the patient lying on the bed, with the patient’s family members nervously gathered around him.
Ning Junyan checked carefully for a while, and asked him a few more questions, before whispering some medical advice to the young doctor.
The young doctor nodded and used a notepad to write it down.
Ning Junyan turned around and saw Chen Yuncheng at the door. He walked straight towards Chen Yuncheng and said calmly, “Looking for me?”
Chen Yuncheng retreated from the door of the ward, and asked Ning Junyan, “Are you okay?”
Ning Junyan said, “What do you think?”
After he said these words, Ning Junyan stopped looking at him and walked towards his office.
Chen Yuncheng stood on the spot and looked at his back.
Ning Junyan walked a few steps and stopped, turned around and said, “Not following?”
Chen Yuncheng was a little helpless and followed Ning Junyan to his office.
Back in the office, Ning Junyan took out a bottle of mineral water from the small refrigerator and then sat on his office chair. He unscrewed the bottle cap, drank the water, and stared straight at Chen Yuncheng.
Chen Yuncheng left the office door open and stood at the door. He looked at Ning Junyan, and said, “Are you free tonight?”
Ning Junyan didn’t answer right away. After he finished his water, he lowered his head and put the cap of the mineral water bottle back completely. Then he raised his hand and threw it forward. The empty bottle made a curve in the air and landed perfectly in the trash can near the door.
Chen Yuncheng turned to look at the bottle, and at the same time heard Ning Junyan ask him, “What’s the matter?”
“Do you still remember Boss Sun?” Chen Yuncheng said, “He wants to treat you to dinner tonight, he might have a family member who wants to ask you for help with a medical appointment.”
Ning Junyan looked at Chen Yuncheng and said nothing.
After waiting for a while, Chen Yuncheng said, “If you don’t want to go, I’ll just turn him down for you.”
Ning Junyan asked, “Just for this?”
Chen Yuncheng was silent for a moment, and said: “I want to see you.” After he said that, when he saw that Ning Junyan had no intention of speaking, he continued, “I don’t know if you want to see me, and I don’t know if I’m bothering you.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the head nurse stood at the door and knocked on the open office door.
Chen Yuncheng turned his head to look, but the head nurse didn’t pay attention to him, walked in and put a small medicine bottle on Ning Junyan’s desk, and said, “I brought you painkillers.” After she said this, the head nurse turned and left Ning Junyan’s office.
Ning Jun extended his hand to put away the medicine bottle.
“What painkiller? Are you taking painkillers?” Chen Yuncheng asked him.
Ning Junyan said, “It’s nothing.” Then he raised his hand to look at the time on his watch, stood up and took off his white coat, and walked to the hanger to take off his coat.
Chen Yuncheng looked at him.
Ning Junyan said, “Let’s go, aren’t we going to have dinner with Boss Sun?”
Chen Yuncheng still asked him, “Why do you need to take painkillers?”
Ning Junyan had already put on his coat, and he said to Chen Yuncheng, “It’s a nervous headache, nothing serious. Let’s go now.”
For the evening meal, Sun Shiliang booked a private room in the restaurant. In addition to inviting Ning Junyan and Chen Yuncheng, he also brought his family members and invited two familiar friends to accompany him.
When Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan arrived, Guan Anlin had already picked up Wu Xiaozhu and sat in the private room.
Guan Anlin and Ning Junyan had started a fight the first time they met, and now that he saw Ning Junyan again, his attitude was not friendly.
Ning Junyan didn’t look at him, shook hands with Sun Shiliang politely, and sat down on the seat near Chen Yuncheng.
Sun Shiliang brought two bottles of wine over.
When Chen Yuncheng saw the waiter placing the wine glasses, he said, “Junyan has to go to work tomorrow, so he doesn’t dare to drink too much today, so I’ll drink for him.”
Sun Shiliang wanted something from him, and he had no intention of forcing Ning Junyan to drink. When he heard this, he immediately said, “Dr. Ning’s work is important. So if you can’t drink today, don’t drink, and have more food later.”
Ning Junyan didn’t say anything.
Today, Sun Shiliang invited guests to dinner for a few things, and he sorted them out clearly in his mind. The first thing was to let everyone toast together to celebrate the opening of the new shop. After a lively time, he toasted Ning Junyan, who was holding the tea in his hand. Sun Shiliang himself drained the wine in his cup in one gulp and asked the hospital about the operation in a low voice. There was an elder in his family who wanted to hire a specialist to do the surgery. There was no shortage of money, but the specialist was out of town, and he couldn’t afford it.
Ning Junyan said, “I’ll ask for you, but this may not necessarily be solved.”
Sun Shiliang said, “I understand, I understand, I just want to ask Dr. Ning to help me find out how long it will take. If it doesn’t work, can you recommend another doctor, so we can make a decision as soon as possible?”
Chen Yuncheng sat next to Ning Junyan and chatted from time to time with the young man opposite him, who was Sun Siliang’s little brother and usually ran business with him, and was familiar with the tobacco and alcohol business. He had met Chen Yuncheng before and found the conversation quite hitting off.
But Chen Yuncheng was actually a little absent-minded, he was still thinking about the painkillers that Ning Junyan had in his pocket when he left the hospital.
He had only heard of the name, but did not know if it was serious, nor did he know if Ning Junyan’s painkillers would have any side effects if he took too many. He kept asking Ning Junyan about it on the way over, but Ning Junyan refused to say anything.
Guan Anlin had to drive back later, Ning Junyan didn’t drink, so Chen Yuncheng drank the most tonight in order to support Sun Shiliang, and he was in a daze after dinner.
When they came out of the restaurant, Sun Shiliang grabbed Chen Yuncheng’s hand, pulled him to the place where he parked, opened the trunk, took out two bottles of wine, and said, “Give it to Dr. Ning for me.”
Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and pressed his swollen and painful forehead, and said to Sun Siliang, “No need, Sun ge.”
Sun Shiliang said, “I want to give it. I want to treat Dr. Ning to dinner again after the matter is over.” After he said that, he put the handbag containing the wine into Chen Yuncheng’s hand, and then said goodbye to the others loudly. With the help of his wife, he got into the car first.
Chen Yuncheng carried the bag and walked to Ning Junyan. At that time, Ning Junyan was already standing in front of the car door, ready to open the door and get in the car.
“Junyan,” Chen Yuncheng called him softly.
He turned his head and looked at Chen Yuncheng.
Chen Yuncheng handed him the wine, “Sun ge gave it to you.”
Ning Junyan looked down and said, “No need, you can return it to Boss Sun.”
Chen Yuncheng said, “It’s a token of his appreciation.”
Ning Junyan said indifferently, “I may not be able to help with this matter, I really don’t need it.” After he said that, he reached out and pulled open the car door.
When Chen Yuncheng saw that he was about to get into the car, he couldn’t help but raise his hand and pull the clothes behind his back.
Ning Junyan stopped and looked back at him.
Chen Yuncheng’s cheeks were flushed, his mind was eroded by alcohol and he was in a mess, he said, “Are you sure you don’t want it?”
Ning Junyanleaned close to his ear and lowered his voice, “I’m doing this for you, so if you feel bad about refusing, take it yourself, I don’t need it.”
At this time, Sun Shiliang and his car left the parking lot on the side of the road first, and Sun Shiliang poked his head from the back seat to say goodbye to them.
Ning Junyan nodded, Chen Yuncheng waved his hand and said, “Sun ge, safe drive.”
When Sun Shiliang’s car drove away, Chen Yuncheng turned around again. He didn’t mention the wine again, but reached out to touch the pocket of Ning Junyan’s coat, and fished out the bottle of painkillers from inside.
He raised his head and tried his best to get close to the street light, trying to see what was written on the medicine bottle, but the light was too dim, and his eyes were blurred, and he couldn’t understand after looking at it for a long time.
Ning Junyan stood silently watching his movements.
Chen Yuncheng put down the medicine bottle, and looked at Ning Junyan, “Is the headache very bad?”
Ning Junyan said, “The pain started when you left.”
Chen Yuncheng showed a sad expression.
There was a loud horn sound behind him, Chen Yuncheng turned his head to look, and saw Guan Anlin driving a van parked on the side of the road, and shouted to him from the lowered window, “Get in the car and go back.”
Chen Yuncheng glanced at Guan Anlin, then turned back to look at Ning Junyan, and asked him, “Does it hurt even now?”
Ning Junyan said expressionlessly, “Yes.”
Chen Yuncheng asked, “Will it be better if I massage it for you?”
Ning Junyan said, “Maybe.”
Chen Yuncheng then turned around, walked to the side of the van, and said to Guan Anlin, “You go back first.” After speaking, he noticed Wu Xiaozhu sitting in the back row, and said, “Send Xiaozhu back.”
Guan Anlin put one arm on the car window and asked him, “What are you doing?”
Chen Yuncheng didn’t answer, and stuffed the wine from Sun Shiliang through the car window, “Take it back for me.”
Guan Anlin saw that his eyes were drifting, and asked, “You’ve had too much to drink, haven’t you? How are you going to get back later?”
Chen Yuncheng said: “I can take a taxi, I can go back.”
Guan Anlin looked very worried and glanced over Chen Yuncheng’s shoulder at Ning Junyan who was standing next to the Land Rover.
Chen Yuncheng urged him, “Go quickly.”
Guan Anlin exhaled a stifled breath, “Then you can call me later, if you can’t, I’ll come to pick you up.”
Chen Yuncheng nodded and told him to drive carefully. He took two steps back to watch him drive the car away, and then returned to Ning Junyan’s side.
“Don’t drive with a headache,” he said to Ning Junyan.
Ning Jun extended his hand, “Give me the medicine.”
Chen Yuncheng shook his head, “Don’t take medicine either, let me massage it for you. It won’t hurt anymore if I massage it.”
Ning Junyan looked at him for a while, then closed the driver’s door, went up to the back seat with Chen Yuncheng, and lay down on Chen Yuncheng’s lap.
Chen Yuncheng’s face and eyes were red, and he pressed his fingers against Ning Junyan’s scalp, gently massaging him.
Ning Junyan closed his eyes, and said after a while, “What do you want from me again after you left?”
Chen Yuncheng was so drunk that many things came out easily, he said, “Did we break up?”
Ning Junyan said, “Why did you leave if we didn’t break up?”
Chen Yuncheng raised his head, feeling that his thoughts were too confused, and he couldn’t understand the meaning of Ning Junyan’s words. He then said blankly, “I just don’t think it’s suitable to live together now.” He had planned to stay at Ning Junyan’s place from the very beginning, and he did not resist the development of their relationship to this point, but he still felt that it was too hasty to start living together or even getting married now.
Ning Jun said slowly, “But I can’t help it.”
Chen Yuncheng looked down at him.
Ning Junyan closed his eyes and said, “As soon as you approach, I want to catch you back and tie you up, and never let you leave. But then you will be angry again, and I don’t know what I should do.”
After he said this, Ning Junyan raised his hand to hold one of Chen Yuncheng’s wrists, and he circled his fingers as if putting a handcuff on Chen Yuncheng.
Chen Yuncheng stopped and said, “No, we won’t be in this kind of relationship.”
Ning Junyan withdrew his hand silently.
Chen Yuncheng asked him: “Does it still hurt?”
“It hurts, keep going,” Ning Junyan replied, reaching into the inner pocket of his jacket, and touching the custom-made handcuffs placed there.
