Chen Yuncheng didn’t drive when he came there, but now he drove Ning Junyan’s car parked in the hospital parking lot to take Guan Anqin back to school.
Guan Anqin sat in the passenger seat and was silent all the way.
Chen Yuncheng knew that she definitely couldn’t be completely at ease, so he persuaded her, “If Ning Junyan said he would be fine, then he will be fine, don’t worry.”
Guan Anqin turned to look at him, and whispered, “Dr. Ning is very awesome.”
Chen Yuncheng smiled when he heard the words, “He is very awesome.”
Guan Anqin seemed to want to say something, but in the end, she didn’t say it. She only said “thank you” to Chen Yuncheng when he dropped her off at the school gate.
Chen Yuncheng parked his car at the roadside and saw her walk into the school before turning around and leaving. He didn’t go back to rest. He already called Shi Peng and told him to go and watch over the shop in the market for the past few nights, so Chen Yuncheng drove away from the school and back to the hospital.
It was definitely impossible to see Guan Anlin at this time, so Chen Yuncheng parked the car in the underground parking lot and took the elevator to Ning Junyan’s department.
Ning Junyan had not rested at this time, he was in the ICU ward explaining post-operative precautions to the nurses on duty, and only when he came out of the ICU ward and went back to his office did he meet Chen Yuncheng who was waiting for him outside.
“Why aren’t you going back?” Ning Junyan was a little surprised.
Chen Yuncheng stood against the wall and looked up at him, “I don’t want to go back alone.”
Ning Junyan asked, “Want to be with me?”
Chen Yuncheng nodded.
The corners of Ning Jun Yan’s mouth curled very slightly as he stretched out his hand towards him, and said in an arrogant tone, “Come.”
Chen Yuncheng followed Ning Junyan into the office. Ning Junyan extended his hand and locked the door behind him, hugged Chen Yuncheng and sat down on the sofa, and made sure that Chen Yuncheng sat on his lap.
“You are too tired,” Chen Yuncheng wanted to get up. Ning Junyan had been standing up all night for the surgery, and Chen Yuncheng really didn’t want to put his weight on him again.
Ning Junyan hugged him tightly and said, “I’m not tired.”
Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help laughing, “Don’t you think this position is like hugging a child?”
Ning Junyan asked him, “Aren’t you scared?”
Chen Yuncheng looked up at him.
Ning Junyan’s tone was flat, “Hold me if you’re afraid.”
Chen Yuncheng smiled and raised his arms to wrap his arms around his neck, “I’m not afraid now, I won’t be afraid when you are here.”
Ning Junyan even patted him on the back, as if to comfort him.
Chen Yuncheng leaned his head on Ning Junyan’s shoulder and said, “I was really scared just now, just like that time when I failed to pull Zhou Yan back in time, I was very worried that something would happen to Guan Anlin, and I wondered why I didn’t stop him in the first place, knowing Yu Jie is an old fox, and he can’t play him.”
Ning Junyan said softly, “Precisely because Yu Jie was an old fox, no one expected him to be that rough and straightforward to kill someone, right?”
Chen Yuncheng nodded, he suddenly thought maybe they were too kind, so they couldn’t predict the evil of human nature. He felt very uncomfortable and thought of Guan Anlin who was lying on the hospital bed, and Zhou Yan who was locked in prison. He even couldn’t help thinking about his parents who died young, and his foster father who had tried to knock Ning Junyan to death with a shovel that night.
He had seen so many ugly and evil human natures, but he was still kind, so he would be even sadder.
Chen Yuncheng hugged Ning Junyan’s neck tightly, rubbed his forehead on his shoulder, and called his name, “Ning Junyan.”
“Hm?” Ning Junyan looked down at him.
Chen Yuncheng said, “What would I do without you?”
Without Ning Junyan, Chen Yuncheng might not be able to leave his foster father and foster mother now. He might not continue to steal things, but he certainly wouldn’t be able to live the life he had now, and he might be tormented by his conscience and feelings all the time.
Ning Junyan said to him, “Without me, there would be other doctors who would have saved Guan Anlin’s life.”
Chen Yuncheng shook his head, he didn’t just want to talk about Guan Anlin.
Unexpectedly, Ning Junyan continued, “But without me, no one would have loved you that much.”
Chen Yuncheng laughed when he heard the words, and asked Ning Junyan, “Am I so unattractive that no one will love me except you?”
Ning Junyan said in his calm tone, “You have lived until twenty-nine years old, has anyone else loved you besides me?”
Chen Yuncheng thought for a while, and suddenly felt sad, “No.” He was persuaded by Ning Junyan, “Alright, only you love me, then you have to love me all the time.”
Ning Junyan kissed him on the forehead and replied, “Alright.”
Later, Chen Yuncheng fell asleep directly in Ning Junyan’s arms.
Ning Junyan directly carried him up, left the office, and walked to the duty room on the other side of the corridor.
The second-line duty room was a separate room with a 1.8-meter bed. The sheets and quilt cover were just changed today, but the pillows and quilts were for one person.
Ning Junyan put Chen Yuncheng on the bed, took off his shoes, and helped him take off his coat.
Chen Yuncheng woke up briefly, but the lights in the room were not turned on. He was a little confused about where he was in the dark, only hearing Ning Junyan say to him, “Go back to sleep.” He was tense all night and was now too tired, so he fell asleep again.
Ning Junyan slept next to him afterwards, sharing a quilt with him, and casually folded his coat as a pillow under his head.
The two spent the rest of the night quietly on the big bed in the duty room.
Early the next morning, when Ning Junyan’s phone alarm clock rang, Chen Yuncheng also woke up. He opened his eyes and found with a bewildered look that he had no idea where he was.
Ning Junyan said to him, “You can still sleep for a while.”
Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and rubbed his eyes, “Where is this?”
“The hospital duty room,” Ning Junyan answered him, giving him a kiss on the lips.
It took Chen Yuncheng some time to react, and he suddenly felt very embarrassed, afraid that someone would come in and see him, so he quickly rolled over.
Ning Junyan said to him, “If you don’t want to sleep again then I will take you to breakfast later.”
Chen Yuncheng nodded.
Visits in ICU were not allowed, but after nine o’clock in the morning, one could look through the glass windows and see the patients.
Chen Yuncheng followed Ning Junyan and finished breakfast in the hospital canteen. After Ning Junyan finished his shift, he went in to see Guan Anlin.
Guan Anlin had already woken up, but his whole body was still very weak. He has a tube inserted into his body and was lying on the hospital bed inhaling oxygen. He noticed Chen Yuncheng standing outside the glass window and tried to raise his hand, but the nurse saw him and scolded him.
Chen Yuncheng didn’t dare to stay for long and left the visiting room of the ICU.
Ning Junyan got off the night shift and drove home with Chen Yuncheng. After they took a shower and changed into pyjamas, the two of them lay on the bed to catch up on sleep.
Chen Yuncheng had something on his mind and couldn’t fall asleep for a while, so he reached out to pick up the mobile phone next to the bed, and secretly glanced at Ning Junyan. When he saw that Ning Junyan seemed to be asleep with his eyes closed, he planned to get out of bed and go out to make a phone call.
In the end, just as he moved, Ning Junyan extended his arms and hugged him back.
“Don’t go,” Ning Junyan said with his eyes closed.
Chen Yuncheng kissed his eyes, “You sleep, I’ll go out and make some phone calls.”
Ning Junyan said, “Just do it here.”
Chen Yuncheng was a little amused, “It will disturb your sleep.”
Ning Junyan had no intention of letting go of his hand at all.
Chen Yuncheng had no choice but to lie on the bed, and first called Wu Xiaozhu to arrange work in the store. He said that Guan Anlin had a car accident, but he didn’t say how serious it was. He only said that he might not be back for a while, and he would go there in the afternoon.
When he was on the phone, Ning Junyan obviously hadn’t fallen asleep, he slipped his hand into the hem of his pyjamas and traced gentle circles against the soft skin of his belly.
Chen Yuncheng didn’t stop him, and after finishing the phone call with Wu Xiaozhu, he called Long Zhanyu again.
Before making this call, Chen Yuncheng was a little hesitant. He felt that Long Zhanyu must have been busy last night, and he didn’t know if he was still busy or just had a rest.
The phone rang twice and was quickly connected, Long Zhanyu’s hoarse voice came through, “Chen Yuncheng?”
Chen Yuncheng asked him, “How is it going?”
Long Zhanyu said, “I’m still busy now, I’ll call you when there is a result here.”
Ning Junyan seemed to hear Chen Yuncheng calling Long Zhanyu and leaned closer to kiss his sensitive earlobe and neck.
Chen Yuncheng shuddered and raised one hand to cover Ning Junyan’s mouth.
Ning Junyan frowned unhappily.
Chen Yuncheng said to Long Zhanyu, “Thank you for your hard work, and take care of your body.”
After he hung up the phone, he released his hand covering Ning Junyan’s lips.
Ning Junyan was very displeased, “Why didn’t you tell me to take care of my body?”
Chen Yuncheng looked at him, “I told you to sleep well.”
“Can’t sleep, I need to kiss my wife first,” Ning Junyan said, and then kissed Chen Yuncheng’s lips, delaying the two of them from going to bed for another few minutes.
