Chapter 66 The Storm Puts a Strong Grass To The Test Part 3
Yan Changqing broke away from Helian Rongchuan’s embrace and walked forward.
“I’m tired, I want to rest. You go back first.”
“For being a dignified general, you are too stingy!” Helian Rongchuan had long been used to Yan Changqing’s icy look. He smiled, and stepped forward to hold Yan Changqing against his shoulders. He involuntarily kicked open the wooden door of the bedroom, and threw themselves on the bed together.
After coming down from Baicang Mountain, Helian Rongchuan took Yan Changqing’s handwritten letter and went to the two Monan cities closest to Qinchuan City overnight to contact and report the resettlement situation of Qinchuan City, to have them prepare to accept tens of thousands of victims. A round trip that would have taken two days to complete, Helian Rongchuan spurred his horse at full speed, so he was almost a day ahead of schedule.
He must be really tired.
Helian Rongchuan was like a big fluffy dog, his face was pressed against Yan Changqing’s chest, and he rubbed contentedly.
Helian Rongchuan thought. He came back without rest, waiting for this moment. Holding Yan Changqing’s pliable body tightly, Helian Rongchuan felt as if his whole heart was immersed in a hot spring, at ease and warm.
“Why are you so good today that you aren’t resisting me kissing you?” Helian Rongchuan laughed in a low voice, there was a little careful speculation in his voice, but he couldn’t hide his joy:
“Have you found out in your conscience that I’m quite good?”
Yan Changqing felt bitterness in his heart. He clenched his fingers tightly, and closed his eyes sadly in the dark.
Seeing that there was no response, Helian Rongchuan deliberately kissed Yan Changqing’s waistline through his clothes. Ambiguously, yet extremely pious.
The shadow cast by the half-covered bed curtain fell on Yan Changqing’s cheeks. The light was so dim that Helian Rongchuan didn’t notice that Yan Changqing’s face was pale and bloodless, like ice and snow that could disappear when touched.
Yan Changqing bit his lip tightly, restrained the trembling of his body, and said nothing. It was not until Helian Rongchuan covered his neck and kissed his neck gently that his restraint instantly collapsed and he trembled violently uncontrollably.
Helian Rongchuan thought Yan Changqing was just shy at first, so he wanted to hold his chin and comfort him with a kiss. However, he immediately noticed that the trembling was abnormal.
Helian Rongchuan suddenly changed his face, and immediately opened the window curtains with a clatter.
He finally saw Yan Changqing’s pale face. Suddenly, it was as if someone had thrown a bucket of cold water on his head.
“What’s wrong with you?!”
Helian Rongchuan stroked Yan Changqing’s cheek, his fingertips were covered in cold sweat. His heart sank and he thought of something, and immediately picked up the elbow that Yan Changqing wanted to hide Regardless of Yan Changqing’s resistance, he resolutely and carefully removed the layers of gauze on the wound.
The two blood holes that were bitten by the white wolf’s sharp teeth seemed to have collapsed and were slowly seeping blood.
Helian Rongchuan’s heart immediately tightened, and he could not help but want to slap himself hard. While carefully re-sprinkling the wound medicine, he whispered: “Does it still hurt?”
Yan Changqing shook his head, seeming to hesitate for a while, before slowly opening his mouth: “It’s okay, it was just… just pressed.”
Yan Changqing was determined to hide it from Helian Rongchuan.
“It’s all my fault.” Helian Rongchuan was full of guilt, he was too rough just now, and really pressed Yan Changqing’s wound. However, after seeing Yan Changqing’s face, he was very worried, and he reached out to touch his forehead.
Yan Changqing didn’t have enough energy, so he didn’t dodge.
Helian Rongchuan’s face turned very ugly. He took a few steps out of the door and pulled in the little guard beside Yan Changqing. The little guard cautiously raised his eyes and looked at Yan Changqing’s expressionless face, his heart was stunned, so he had to follow the arrangement and answer Helian Rongchuan’s question: “The Imperial Physician Wei Jin said that Master Yan is all right, it’s just that he got a bit of a cold…”
Helian Rongchuan snorted coldly: “In midsummer, can you show me how to catch a cold?”
The little guard whispered: “Your Highness might not know, but Qinchuan is located in the desert, so the temperature is very low at night, and Lord Yan… he didn’t cover the quilt for a while…”
Helian Rongchuan narrowed his eyes and said, “Really?”
Yan Changqing stood up and said lightly, “Don’t believe me? This was diagnosed by the little imperial doctor by your side. Now he is outside giving medicine, why don’t you go ask?”
His tone was deliberately a little displeased, as if he was embarrassed after being exposed in public for the shortcomings of “not covering himself with a quilt at night”, but also because he was not trusted.
“Okay, I believe you.” Helian Rongchuan responded like a child, but he frowned and carefully probed Yan Changqing’s pulse. Seeing that it was indeed a symptom of a cold, he couldn’t find anything unusual, so he finally relaxed a little.
He turned around and took the medicine that the little guard was holding, scooped a tablespoon, put it on his lips and blew it, “A cold is not a minor illness, drink the medicine well, and then sleep.”
Yan Changqing glanced at the medicine, his lips slightly trembled, without saying a word.
Helian Rongchuan turned his head and said angrily to the little guard beside him: “What are you doing, go do what you need to do!”
The little guard opened his mouth and wanted to speak, but he saw behind Helian Rongchuan, Yan Changqing shaking his head slightly, so he had no choice but to close his mouth and slip away as if to flee for his life.
“Okay, there’s nothing in the way.” Helian Rongchuan tested the temperature of the medicine with his lips again, scooped up a spoonful, and said, “Drink it? You’re not afraid of it being bitter right?”
Yan Changqing trembled slightly again, and suddenly he grabbed the medicine bowl in his other hand, raised his neck, and gulped down the large bowl of medicine.
Helian Rongchuan’s wrist was shaken and he almost spilled the medicine from the spoon.
With a “bang”, Yan Changqing put the bowl down. Without looking at Helian Rongchuan, he just laid down and turned his back around.
In the darkness, he gritted his teeth.
Helian Rongchuan sighed helplessly. This man was no fun.
Silently, he tucked the quilt for him. Helian Rongchuan said, “I’ll cover the quilt for you this time, but you can’t push it off again, ok?”
Yan Changqing’s brows trembled violently, and he closed his eyes and said nothing.
Helian Rongchuan looked at the small back of Yan Changqing’s head that was exposed outside the quilt. His long black hair was like satin covering the small half of the bed. His heart felt like there was a spring breeze, and a kind, gentle and doting smile in his eyes unconsciously appeared.
Who would have thought that the invincible general would still kick off his quilt like a child at night, catch a cold and fall ill?
Helian Rongchuan touched Yan Changqing’s forehead, and said a little worriedly: “Sleep well for a few hours, wipe your sweat, and you’ll be fine. I’ll come over to see you in the afternoon.”
Yan Changqing finally opened his eyes and said nothing, looking at him.
Being poked at by Yan Changqing’s sharp eye daggers, Helian Rongchuan had no choice but to shut his mouth.
He got up and walked away.
When he got to the door, he stopped.
“My mother once said that people who are sick should eat more good tonics. What do you want to eat, I’ll go and prepare it for you first?”
In the darkness behind where the sunlight could not reach, for a long while, there was no reply
Fall asleep so soon? It seems that his Changqing was really exhausted.
Helian Rongchuan didn’t dare to disturb him again, so he closed the door softly and left.
In the darkness, Yan Changqing suddenly opened his eyes. He pricked up his ears, and after confirming that Helian Rongchuan had finally left, he opened the window curtains, and with a “wa”, he vomited out all the medicine he had just drank.
The little guard heard the movement in the room and rushed in in a hurry. Seeing this scene, his voice trembled in fright.
“Sir, are you… I will give you another medicine?”
Yan Changqing stood up and wiped the corners of his pale, slightly cracked lips. The strands of hair on his forehead were wet with cold sweat, and his face appeared as white as a ghost.
Yan Changqing looked down at the gauze wrapped around his left elbow. In fact, Helian Rongchuan didn’t press his wound at all. The reason why his wound has not healed was purely because of the wolf.
“Wei Jin is right, I have rabies and can’t drink water. You don’t have to be busy.”
