Ning Junyan pressed himself against Chen Yuncheng and lowered his head as he patiently unbuttoned Chen Yuncheng’s pyjamas one by one.

       Chen Yuncheng asked him, “Have you had enough sleep this afternoon? Are not you tired now?”

       Ning Junyan didn’t stop moving and just said, “I’m tired, but I need to feed myself first.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help but laugh, “I don’t know what’s going on in your head all day long.”

       Ning Junyan looked up at him, “Thinking about you quite a lot.”

       When he really took off Chen Yuncheng’s pyjamas, Ning Junyan hugged him again and did nothing else, closed his eyes, and said slowly, “You said you’d try anything with me.”

       Chen Yuncheng stroked his hair, “There must be a bottom line.”

       Ning Junyan said, “What’s your bottom line?”

       Chen Yuncheng thought for a while and said, “I can’t say it now. I can’t promise you all the weird things.”

       Ning Junyan said softly, “My bottom line is you. Nothing else matters.”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced at him and saw that his eyes were still closed, and the expression on his face probably didn’t change when he said this.

       After a while, Ning Junyan fell asleep. Chen Yuncheng gently moved his hand away and rolled out of bed to clean up his changed clothes and wet towels in the bathroom. He waited until everything was tidied up, then turned off the light and went back to bed, lying beside Ning Junyan to sleep.

       Ning Zhanghong stayed in the ICU for a few days and was transferred to the general ward when his condition stabilised.

       After Chen Yuncheng found out about it, he thought he should go and visit him.

       It just so happened that afternoon Guan Anlin accompanied him to a second-hand car dealership to look at the cars. Chen Yuncheng actually didn’t really think much about famous brand cars, and he never felt that he needed a mortgage to buy a second-hand famous brand car, but he also felt that what Sun Shiliang said was very reasonable. In business, the richer people think you are, the more willing they are to deal with you.

       Guan Anlin was quite interested in these cars, and he was very happy during the test drive.

       On the way back from the used car dealership, Guan Anlin hummed to the radio while driving the van.

       Chen Yuncheng said that he wanted to go to the hospital to visit Ning Junyan’s father.

       Guan Anlin had already heard him mention this matter and said, “Going to see your father-in-law?”

       Chen Yuncheng gave him a blank look and didn’t bother to talk to him.

       Guan Anlin continued, “You said his father is the director of some hospital, right? Do you think he’d jump up from his hospital bed in fierce opposition if he knew about you two?”

       Chen Yuncheng imagined Ning Zhanghong’s character and temper and was really not sure how he would react. He was definitely against it, but he didn’t know whether Ning Zhanghong would oppose it for himself or for his wife’s sake.

       When he thought of these things, Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help being a little upset and said, “His mother is more difficult to deal with than his father.”

       Guan Anlin nodded in understanding, “An evil mother-in-law. What are your plans?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I have no plans, I believe in Ning Junyan.”

       Guan Anlin said, “It’s not like it’s your mother anyway.”

       Ning Junyan was on the night shift tonight, and Chen Yuncheng planned to return to the store with Guan Anlin after seeing the patient.

       Guan Anlin parked the car in the hospital parking lot, accompanied him to buy fruits and flowers in front of the hospital, and then went up to the hospital room.

       When he reached the door of the ward, Chen Yuncheng saw that the door was only ajar, and Ning Junyan was sitting next to the bed in a white coat, while Ning Zhanghong was lying on the bed, looking like he had already woken up and was talking to Ning Junyan.

       Guan Anlin didn’t go in but sat on the chair at the ward’s door and waited for Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and knocked on the door.

       Ning Junyan and Ning Zhanghong looked at the door at the same time. Ning Junyan stood up and walked towards Chen Yuncheng, “Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?”

       The time was now past four o’clock in the afternoon, Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m afraid you are still busy, so I didn’t call you.” After he said that, he turned to Ning Zhanghong and greeted, “Uncle Ning.”

       Ning Zhanghong nodded.

       Ning Junyan took the flowers and fruit basket from him and put them on the window sill of the ward. Chen Yuncheng walked to the bed and asked, “Is Uncle feeling better now?”

       Ning Zhanghong said, “It’s much better. Thank you, please have a seat.”

       Chen Yuncheng seemed a little cautious and did not sit down.

       Ning Junyan walked behind him and pressed his shoulders so that he could sit in the chair while he himself sat by the hospital bed, which was very close to Chen Yuncheng.

       A few questions and answers were exchanged between Chen Yuncheng and Ning Zhanghong, all about Ning Zhanghong’s health. Ning Zhanghong’s attitude towards Chen Yuncheng was somewhat similar to Shu Rong’s in that he was polite in a distant way, but he was different from Shu Rong, in that his politeness was superficial and seemed to be the same in the face of anyone.

       After he said a few words, Chen Yuncheng felt that he had nothing to say. He was just here to visit, and now that he had achieved his goal, he could leave, so he glanced at Ning Junyan.

       Ning Junyan was also looking at him, noticing his gaze, and said, “Is there something you want to tell me?”

       Chen Yuncheng said “En”.

       Ning Junyan stood up and said to Ning Zhanghong, “You should rest first.”

       Chen Yuncheng immediately got up and said goodbye to Ning Zhanghong, “Uncle, I’m going to leave in a bit, I wish you a speedy recovery.”

       Ning Zhanghong nodded, “Take care.”

       Ning Junyan and Chen Yuncheng came out of the ward together and reached out to close the door. Chen Yuncheng heaved a sigh of relief and said in a low voice, “I don’t know what to say to your father.”

       “I know,” Ning Junyan said, “so didn’t I tell you to go?”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled.

       Guan Anlin was sitting outside right now, concentrating on playing games on his mobile phone without even raising his head.

       Chen Yuncheng walked over and kicked his leg, “Let’s go.”

       Guan Anlin only said, “Right away.” He turned around and continued his game.

       “Leaving?” Ning Junyan asked Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Why wouldn’t I leave, aren’t you on duty today?”

       Ning Junyan asked, “You just came to see my dad?”

       Chen Yuncheng answered him with a smile, “Yes.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him and didn’t speak.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I’ll come over tomorrow night.”

       Just when Guan Anlin finished a game, he raised his head and glanced at the two of them with an annoyed look on his face. He stuffed the phone back into his pants pocket, stood up and said to Chen Yuncheng, “Let’s go.”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, “Let’s go.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, he heard the sound of high heels coming from the other end of the corridor. He subconsciously looked up, and saw Shu Rong walking towards the ward in a light blue suit today.

       There was a middle-aged man beside Shu Rong, holding a bouquet of flowers in his hand and turning his head to talk to Shu Rong. It was Yu Jie whom Chen Yuncheng had met at Shu Rong’s place when she accompanied Ning Junyan home for dinner during the New Year.

       Chen Yuncheng frowned slightly.

       Yu Jie was talking to Shu Rong with a smile at first, but he seemed to have noticed the sight from this side. He raised his head and saw Chen Yuncheng and the others. His eyes turned to Guan Anlin as if he didn’t know him. He maintained a smile on his face and went on and said something to Shu Rong.

       Shu Rong also showed a polite smile.

       When she got closer, Shu Rong looked at Ning Junyan and asked, “Is your father awake? Boss Yu came to visit him specially.”

       Ning Junyan said, “He took a nap at noon and woke up just now.”

       Shu Rong turned to face Yu Jie and said, “Then let’s go in.”

       Yu Jie nodded and followed Shu Rong to enter the ward. He passed by Chen Yuncheng and Guan Anlin with flowers in his arms without looking up at them again.

       But at this time, Guan Anlin made an unexpected move. He punched Yu Jie in the face and cursed, “Old fvcking dog!”

       His punch was so heavy that Yu Jie’s face suddenly turned to the side, and the flower in his hand fell to the ground.

       Chen Yuncheng held Guan Anlin when he was about to punch him a second time and shouted, “Stop!”

       Shu Rong had one hand on the doorknob of the ward, but turned around with a look of surprise, looked at Chen Yuncheng and Guan Anlin, and said, “What are you doing?”

       Yu Jie covered his face and stood up straight.

       Shu Rong asked him, “Boss Yu, are you okay? I’ll call the police right away.”

       Ning Junyan reached out and pressed Shu Rong’s hand, which was about to hold the phone, and said, “No need.” He looked at Yu Jie, “Boss Yu, are you okay?”
