Although Xu Youyous voice was hoarse, it was soft, tickling Mo Shenbais heart.
He looked ahead and strode into the dining room as though he did not hear her and carefully placed her on the chair.
The helper quickly served the food and left, leaving the duo in the dining room alone.
They ate quietly, and only the occasional sounds of the cutleries hitting their plates could be heard.
After dinner, Xu Youyou was afraid Mo Shenbai would carry her again so she quickly rose to her feet and said, “Im going back to my room to take a shower.”
The heating system in the hotel was rather bad, and Xu Youyou had not taken a proper shower over the past two days.
Now that she had eaten, all she wanted to do was to take a comfortable shower.
Mo Shenbai said faintly, “Wait for a while for your food to digest before you shower.
Remember not to wash your hair as well.
You still havent recovered from your cold.”
Xu Youyou nodded obediently.
After saying that, Xu Youyou quickly made her way upstairs.
Mo Shenbai listened to her light footsteps with a smile on his face.
When she was not around, the house was too quiet.
Now that he heard the muffled sounds of her footsteps, he felt as though the house was much brighter.
‘She really cant be away from the house for too long…
Xu Youyou waited for about ten minutes before she brought her pajamas into the bathroom.
Although she really wanted to wash her hair, she gave up on the idea when she recalled Mo Shenbais words.
Since his words were for her own good, she might as well listen to him.
She had just dressed and gotten under the blanket when she heard a knock.
Mo Shenbai opened the door and entered the room with her medicine and a cup of water.
He said, “Take the medicine and rest early.”
Xu Youyou took the medicine without complaining and swallowed a few pills at the same time.
Mo Shenbai helped her lie down and tucked her blanket for her before he turned off the lights in the room, leaving only a dim yellow light.
Then, he said gently, “Rest early and sleep well.”
Xu Youyou yawned.
She looked at him with slightly moist eyes and said, “You should rest early as well.
You still have to go to work tomorrow.”
Mo Shenbai nodded slightly, but he still remained seated on the side of her bed.
When he saw her looking at him with a quizzical expression, he said, “Ill leave after you fall asleep…”
If it were anyone else, Xu Youyou would not have agreed to such a thing.
It would feel very awkward after all.
However, the other party was Mo Shenbai so she did not feel uncomfortable.
Instead, she felt a little sweet in her heart as she nodded and said, “Alright…”
Mo Shenbais heart softened even more when he heard her gentle voice.
The corners of his lips curled up into a smile as he asked, “Are your hands cold Do you want me to help you warm them”
Without waiting for Xu Youyous reply, he grabbed her hands tightly, covering them.
Xu Youyou lowered her gaze.
She could not help but smile.
Mo Shenbai also could not help the smile that appeared on his face.
He asked in a low voice, “Can you tell me about what happened that night in the hotel”
Although Mo Shenbai had heard a little from Cang Ming, he would still rather hear it from her.
For example, he really wanted to know how she knew that someone had deliberately locked her and Kang Mingcheng in her room.
He was also curious about how she knew Lin Zhihuan and Jiang Xue would appear the next day.
She knew it was a trap and calmly played along so that the villains would fall into the trap instead.
Xu Youyous thick eyelashes fluttered slightly.
She lowered her gaze as she said softly, “The door to the room was fine.
There was no reason for it to get stuck.
Moreover, how could it be so coincidental that not only our phones werent working, but the WiFi wasnt working as well I could tell something was wrong so I told Teacher Kang to climb out the window.” Then, she paused slightly before she said with a hint of pride, “Ive read quite a few novels so I still have a bit of awareness about schemes like that!”
In fact, the truth was Xu Youyou had seen Lin Zhihuan and Jiang Xue and the series of events that would happen in her dreams.
However, she could not tell Mo Shenbai this.
Otherwise, he would definitely think she was a lunatic.
Mo Shenbai asked again, “Did you also tell Kang Mingcheng not to return to his room and to go and buy the medicine”
Xu Youyou replied, “Mm.
Im afraid things would go wrong.
Itd be safer if he was away from the hotel for a longer time.
However, I really didnt expect the car to break down.”
Mo Shenbai smiled knowingly.
“Im afraid the car didnt really break down.”
Xu Youyou looked at him, puzzled.
“Huh What do you mean”
Mo Shenbai patiently explained, “If you could tell that something was wrong, Kang Mingcheng definitely could tell something was wrong as well…”
Realization dawned on Xu Youyou.
“Youre saying that Teacher Kang deliberately stayed out the entire night and only returned in the morning” Then, after a brief pause, she asked, “But why He could have just called his fiancee and explained everything to her.”
‘Why didnt he answer his fiancees call and make things so complicated
Mo Shenbai lowered his gaze as he speculated out loud, “Maybe he wanted to use that as an opportunity to do something…”
“What do you mean” Xu Youyou grew even more puzzled.
Mo Shenbai did not reply to her.
Instead, he looked at her and said, “Its nothing.
Go to sleep.”
Xu Youyou pursed her lips.
Her curiosity had been piqued.
Alas, it was clear that he would not answer her question.
Hence, she asked, “Why didnt you ask Lin Zhihuan why she did such a thing”
Mo Shenbai asked in return, “Why didnt you ask her Regardless of her reason, its no excuse for what she had done to you…”
Xu Youyou wanted to speak again, but Mo Shenbai beat her to it and said, “Alright.
Go to sleep.
You dont have to worry about anything.
Leave it to me.”
Although Xu Youyou had slept the entire day, the cold medicine made her sleepy.
She yawned, causing tears to well up in her eyes.
Then, she softly said, “Mmm.”
She thought it was best not to discuss this matter any further.
After all, it would lead to more questions that she could not answer.
After Xu Youyou fell asleep, Mo Shenbai gently brushed away a few strands of her black hair on her face.
His dark eyes were warm as he stared at her unblinkingly like a devout believer looking at God.
He was smart enough to see that she was hiding something, but since she did not want to talk about it, he would not force her.
He respected her wish to keep whatever it was a secret, and he would help her protect the secret.
Mo Shenbai held her hand carefully as he lowered his head and kissed her gently.
Mo Shenbai was afraid Xu Youyou would have a fever so he did not rest the entire night.
From time to time, he would go to her room and gently check her temperature.
Xu Youyou slept very soundly due to the medicine so she was unaware of this.
It was not until daybreak that Mo Shenbai managed to rest.
When Xu Youyou woke up, she felt that her body was not as heavy as before.
However, her throat was still a little sore, and she was still coughing.
Upon seeing this, Mo Shenbai called the doctor over again to give her a transfusion.
When the doctor came, Xu Youyou hid her hands and refused to bring them out no matter what.
She said firmly, “I feel much better so theres no need for a transfusion.
She began to cough again before she could finish her words.
“You said you feel much better, but youre still coughing…” Mo Shenbai said with a frown.
Then, he turned to the doctor and said solemnly, “Give her the transfusion.”
When Xu Youyou saw the approaching needle, she said anxiously with a pitiful expression on her face, “Mo Shenbai… Great Chairman Mo, Benefactor Mo, can I please not have another transfusion”
