"Is face more important than your body?" As he spoke, Lu Tingxiao grabbed his wallet and phone, then quickly lifted her by the waist.
Ning Xi immediately waved her hands. "Ergh… Lu Tingxiao… no… switch to a different position… maybe it’s better if you just help me walk slowly… this position makes me more uncomfortable…"
"You…" Lu Tingxiao was both angry and concerned, and could only put her down and carefully help her walk out.
When they reached the hospital’s emergency room, Ning Xi’s clothes and hair were wet with sweat.
Because Ning Xi had been clutching her stomach and Lu Tingxiao had an expression suggesting that the sky was about to collapse, a nurse immediately met them and gave Ning Xi a hand. "Is the baby coming? Quick! Get onto the stretcher!"
Ning Xi lifted the mask she had been wearing to avoid being recognized, and with black lines on her head, explained, "No… that’s not it, Sister Nurse! I overate!"
"…" The nurse was speechless for a second, then looked down at her stomach, and realized that it was only protruding a little, and in fact wasn’t like the stomach of a pregnant woman. "For stomach issues, please turn left!"
At midnight, after a period of torment, Ning Xi’s diagnosis finally came out.
She had acute gastritis caused by overeating and stress within a short period of time…
Lu Tingxiao touched the girl’s pale cheek as she lay in the hospital bed, his own face full of pain. "Does it still hurt?"
Ning Xi nodded bitterly. "Yes, but it’s not as bad as before... that, Lu Tingxiao, there’s one thing…"
"What is it? Tell me."
Ning Xi hesitated for a moment, then embarrassedly said, "Seems like the ring scraped and broke the skin on one side of my gum. I didn't feel anything earlier, but now it hurts a lot..."
Lu Tingxiao facepalmed, and didn’t know whether to cry or laugh. He ruffled her hair. "Wait for me. I’ll get you some medicine."
After Lu Tingxiao left, Ning Xi let out her a long breath of air, and then stroked her round stomach…
She never expected her stomach would work so hard during a critical moment!
But… the feeling of overeating was really uncomfortable! She never wanted to feel it for a second time in her whole life!
Before, there had been times when she had been too busy to eat, and as a result, had once also gotten a sudden acute case of gastritis at midnight…
The difference was that at that time, she couldn't get a taxi at midnight, so she rode her motorbike to the hospital herself, registered herself, got her medicine herself, and sat on a cold bench in the corridor with an IV drip by herself…
Lu Tingxiao came back quickly.
He sat down on the edge of the bed with the medicine, and opened the bottle and said seriously, "This medicine is topical. Open your mouth and I'll help you put it on your wound."
Ning Xi obediently opened her mouth, but her tongue accidentally touched it, and she frowned. "Bitter…"
"Endure it for a bit, don’t touch it."
After applying the medicine, Lu Tingxiao looked at her with gentle eyes and said softly, "Teacher…"
A little startled, Ning Xi was blank for a bit before she realized that he was calling her. "Ah?"
"I'm sorry…" Lu Tingxiao sighed softly with self-reproach, then took her hand and gently kissed the back of it. "Blame this student who has no skill, causing you to get hurt."
Ning Xi’s heart skipped a beat —
Damn… sixty percent… sixty-one… sixty-two… sixty-three… it continued increasing...
How is this no skill!
He was obviously a prodigy!!!
Hearing his words, Ning Xi looked embarrassed. "What? Let’s not, going to the hospital in the middle of the night because of overeating is too humiliating!"
