Dr. Xiang’s full name was Xiang Wenshi. He was one of the most handsome bachelors in the C University Affiliated Hospital, known as the golden bachelor. Of course, these were all things Song Jun heard from others later.
However, Song Jun felt quite comfortable getting along with Xiang Wenshi. He was the youngest deputy chief physician of the Thoracic Surgery Department, but he didn’t put any airs at all when getting along with them. He has a friendly attitude, and his speech and behaviour were also very charming.
Song Jun actually wanted to be a doctor, but he felt that he didn’t have the mental capacity to bear that kind of pressure. So when he saw Xiang Wenshi looking elegant in a white coat, he unconsciously felt a bit envious, but of course, Song Jun felt that no one could wear a white coat better than Xia Hongshen.
Lunch was eaten in the hospital cafeteria. Xiang Wenshi ordered three one-pot stir-fries with his meal card. For Song Jun, it was indeed an improvement in his food.
Although the three of them were sitting in the corner of the cafeteria, they still attracted attention. Song Jun didn’t notice it at first, but later, he found that the nurses at several tables were looking at them, and he suddenly felt a little embarrassed.
Xiang Wenshi had been chatting with them.
Feng Junyuan still looked in a bad mood. He was originally a sensitive person and was not very good at dealing with interpersonal relationships. Even when Xiang Wenshi took the initiative to talk to him, he looked listless.
However, Song Jun felt otherwise; at least, he thought it wasn’t very polite. As a result, most of the time, it was him and Xiang Wenshi who were talking.
Xiang Wenshi talked about some hospital and academic matters, and Song Jun also listened with interest and felt very interested.
After eating, Song Jun went back to the inpatient building with them, took a blood sample, and planned to leave.
Before leaving, Feng Junyuan actually said ‘thank you’ to Song Jun.
Song Jun was stunned for a moment and reflexively asked, “What?”
Feng Junyuan immediately turned away, “It’s nothing.”
Song Jun raised his hand and scratched his head, “Be careful yourself.”
He thought of the little girl and her parents, who wouldn’t let go of Feng Junyuan.
Feng Junyuan touched the gauze on his face and said softly, “Hmm”.
Back in the lab, Song Jun collected the blood samples, looked at the experimental results, opened his mouth and yawned. After eating, he wanted to sleep. He stretched and decided to go back to the dormitory to take a nap before talking about it in the afternoon.
At the door of the dormitory room, Song Jun was taking out the key to open the door when he suddenly heard the sound of breathing in his ears.
Because the distance was so close, he was frightened to the point he dropped the key. He suddenly turned around and realised it was Xia Hongshen.
Song Jun pressed his chest, “Senior Brother Xia, are you going to scare me to death?” What he said was not an exaggeration at all. Having seen strange things in the hospital in the morning, his mental endurance was a bit fragile now.
Xia Hongshen didn’t react at all. He moved his head close to his neck, seeming to be inhaling and smelling his scent.
“Huh?” Xia Hongshen said.
Song Jun felt a little embarrassed and a little strange, “What’s wrong?”
Xia Hongshen smelled it for a while, then suddenly raised his head and said, “What a strong and unpleasant smell.”
Song Jun suddenly opened his eyes in disbelief and looked at Xia Hongshen with his face flushed. He didn’t understand what Xia Hongshen meant.
After saying that, Xia Hongshen left his side and went back to her room.
Song Jun stood at the door for a long time, then picked up the key and went back to the room. The first thing he did was to take off his clothes and smell them. His clothes had just been changed today, and they only smelled like soap.
But he was so concerned about Xia Hongshen’s words that he couldn’t help but take a kettle and take a shower in the water room.
After taking a shower, Song Jun suddenly felt a little chilly.
Before he knew it, it was already the end of September, and it was already October, and the weather was getting colder and colder. A lot of things had happened this summer since he entered school. When he thought about it now, it felt like it was a lifetime ago.
At noon that day, Song Jun sent text messages to several close classmates at the university one by one to ask how everyone was doing.
After receiving the reply, Song Jun smiled, raised his arms and stretched his body, planning to spend these three years of graduate school life well.
After getting up from a nap, Song Jun knocked on Xia Hongshen’s door on his way out. He was startled by him at noon and forgot to tell him about Feng Junyuan. Now that he remembered it, Song Jun decided to tell Xia Hongshen.
After hearing this, Xia Hongshen said, “Hmm” calmly.
Song Jun felt a little strange, “Aren’t you going to help him? Is he not your—” He couldn’t find the right words to describe the relationship between them.
Xia Hongshen said, “It doesn’t matter, he will be fine.”
After listening to this, Song Jun suddenly thought that Feng Junyuan was so powerful that it was indeed not easy for those ghosts and demons to harm him. Since Xia Hongshen believed in him so much, there was no need to worry too much, so he nodded, “Okay, I understand.”
After a weekend like this, Song Jun didn’t hear any more news about Feng Junyuan from the hospital. He thought that the little girl’s parents probably just couldn’t figure it out for a while, and it might be fine after it passed.
On Monday, Song Jun had classes all morning.
He sat in the classroom all morning, and by the time he got out of class, it was almost time for lunch.
Coming out of the classroom with books, Song Jun met Xiang Wenshi, who was coming out of the next classroom.
“Teacher Xiang?” Song Jun greeted him proactively when he saw him.
Xiang Wenshi held a water glass and a computer bag and smiled at Song Jun, “What a coincidence? Are you in class?”
Song Jun nodded, “Teacher Xiang is here for class?”
Xiang Wenshi said, “That’s right, to teach the clinical undergraduates.”
Song Jun smiled and couldn’t think of anything to say, so he asked, “Teacher Xiang, are you going to eat?”
He just asked casually, but he didn’t expect Xiang Wenshi to answer him, “Okay, let’s go eat together.”
Initially, it was he who had invited first, so Song Jun found it difficult to refuse. In fact, he didn’t really want to go to dinner with Xiang Wenshi. It was not that he didn’t like Xiang Wenshi but that Song Jun had a timid personality. When dining with someone he didn’t know well, he couldn’t help but find a topic to talk about, and he would always feel uncomfortable.
On the way to the cafeteria, Xiang Wenshi said that he forgot to bring his meal card. Song Jun quickly said, “It doesn’t matter, I’ll treat you today.”
He was too embarrassed to treat others to a bad meal, so Song Jun asked Xiang Wenshi to find a seat while he queued up for a small stir-fry meal.
There were a bit too many people at the small stir-fry side. Song Jun stood at the end of the queue and took out his phone to check it out while queuing.
Suddenly, a hand was put on his shoulder, and Xia Hongshen asked in his ear, “Is the food good?”
Song Jun quickly turned around and asked, “Senior Brother Xia?!”
Xia Hongshen looked expressionless and asked him, “Who are you inviting to dinner?”
When he asked this, Song Jun knew that he probably saw him and Xiang Wenshi entering the cafeteria together and quickly said, “That is the clinical teacher. He didn’t bring a meal card, so I invited him to have a meal.”
“Oh,” Xia Hongshen said.
Song Jun suddenly felt that he was probably unhappy.
Xia Hongshen put a hand on Song Jun’s shoulder and had no intention of leaving, but he didn’t say anything else.
Song Jun asked, “Would you like to eat together?”
Xia Hongshen said, “Oh.”
Song Jun was getting a bit frustrated.
Song Jun simply asked Xia Hongshen to help him wait in line for the stir-fries and went to order two more dishes. When he returned to the table, Xiang Wenshi stood up when he saw Xia Hongshen.
“Huh?” Song Jun felt that Xiang Wenshi’s reaction was a little too much, “Teacher Xiang?”
Xiang Wenshi smiled at him.
Song Jun quickly introduced Xia Hongshen to Xiang Wenshi, “This is a senior fellow student from my college. He is a doctoral student in pathology; his name is Xia Hongshen. And this is Director Xiang from the Thoracic Surgery Department.”
Xia Hongshen looked at Xiang Wenshi coldly.
Song Jun noticed Xia Hongshen’s gaze, felt that he was a little impolite, and carefully pulled his sleeve.
But he didn’t expect Xiang Wenshi to suddenly say, “Just received a call. There’s an emergency surgery that came up suddenly. I won’t be able to join you for this meal. Thank you, student xiao Song.”
Song Jun was stunned, “So urgent?”
Xiang Wenshi smiled and said, “I’ll treat you to dinner next time when I get the chance.” After saying that, he took his things, turned around and walked towards the cafeteria door.
Song Jun still didn’t react, so he put the food on the table and said to Xia Hongshen, “Only the two of us can eat it.”
Xia Hongshen sat down opposite him.
Song Jun saw that Xia Hongshen didn’t seem very happy, so he reached out and put a chopstick of fish into his bowl. Song Jun decided to get this fish on the spur of the moment after seeing Xia Hongshen.
He bit his chopsticks and suddenly asked, “Senior Brother, are you a cat?”
Xia Hongshen raised his eyes to look at him.
Song Jun suddenly remembered that the Night Patrol God had said before that Xia Hongshen was a monster. What kind of monster? Song Jun started thinking and said in surprise, “Senior Brother, are you a cat demon?”
Xia Hongshen’s expression didn’t change at all, and he didn’t answer him at all.
But Song Jun was used to it. He said, “There are often little wild cats that break into my dormitory. I’ll introduce you to them next time.”
Xia Hongshen hit him on the head with his chopsticks.
Song Jun smiled.
“Be careful of that person,” Xia Hongshen said suddenly.
“Huh?” Song Jun was confused, and then he reacted, “You mean Teacher Xiang?”
Xia Hongshen picked up the bowl, picked up the fish, put it into his mouth and chewed it slowly.
Song Jun was pained by the fact that he only spoke halfway and asked, “Why should I be careful about him? Are you saying I can’t have contact with him?”
Xia Hongshen said, “You can decide it yourself.”
Song Jun was stunned. He picked up the bowl to take two mouthfuls of rice and then said to Xia Hongshen, “That Teacher Xiang is the director of Feng Junyuan’s internship department.”
Xia Hongshen picked up another piece of fish with chopsticks and ate it slowly and methodically. He just nodded slightly and didn’t say anything.
At night, Song Jun opened the window and felt the cool breeze outside blowing on his face, so he took a deep breath, climbed up to the window and sat with his legs hanging outside the window sill.
Song Jun felt that Xia Hongshen liked him, but sometimes, he felt that Xia Hongshen’s attitude was unclear, and he had no idea what the other person was thinking.
“Ah—” Song Jun suddenly shouted.
A little black cat on the square roof opposite who was about to jump over seemed startled. He paused as if he was about to jump over and then suddenly rushed over and jumped in from the eaves above the first-floor window into Song Jun’s arms.
Song Jun was startled by it, and he breathed a sigh of relief after seeing clearly that it was the black cat.
The little black cat changed its direction, sat down on his lap, and looked out the window with him.
Song Jun touched its head and sighed secretly.
