Chapter 33: I’m afraid

As soon as Wen Yufeng walked out from the back door of senior 2 Class 6, the group of students standing at the front door hurriedly ran over.
Several of them spoke one after another.
Wen Yufeng lazily raised his eyes to sweep the crowd. His cold eyes frightened them so much that they did not dare to continue speaking.
The originally aggressive momentum was also suppressed.
Only then did Wen Yufeng turn around and walk in the direction of the staircase.
At that moment, Zhao Zirui and Li Xiang also came out of the classroom. The two of them followed without hesitation.The students looked at each other and saw the same fear in each other’s eyes. In the end, they could only helplessly chase after them.
When they reached the stairwell, Wen Yufeng’s footsteps stopped.
He lowered his right hand and turned around, looking at everyone with a cold expression.
“It’s so late, what are you guys planning to do when you pulled out with this battle formation?”
Li Xiang, who was standing side by side with Zhao Zirui, gritted his teeth. “Of course I’m taking revenge for you, Brother Yu!” The grandsons of No. 3 High School would only dare to do such dirty things as sneak attack or siege. This time, it was even more so! Not only did they call those scoundrels in society, they even f*cking dared to use a knife. Since they don’t know the rules, we’ll teach them the rules!”
“Brother Xiang is right. It’s time to teach those grandsons a lesson!”
Li Xiang’s words caused the students following him to be enraged. Just as they were suppressed by Wen Yufeng’s gaze, they were about to explode again.
He did not make a sound and just stood there with his eyes lowered. Black hair fell from his forehead, covering his sharp and handsome features.
This strange silence finally caused the people who had just realized it to gradually recover from their feverish urges. Their voices slowly faded away. One by one, hesitating and looking fearfully at the silent Wen Yufeng leaning against the wall.
When the entire staircase finally fell silent, the boy in front of everyone slowly looked up.
The starlight in his pitch-black eyes glimmered. His thin lips suddenly twitched, and his smile turned cold.
“Speak.” The boy’s voice was lazy, and there was a hoarse echo in the empty staircase.
His eyes slowly swept across everyone’s face, “……Why didn’t you continue?”
It was as if the cold blade that glowed with cold light was slowly approaching their throat. In this dim staircase, suffocating air was squeezing the hearts of everyone in all directions.
It wasn’t until no one dared to look at him again that Wen Yufeng retracted his gaze.
He calmed down.
“This afternoon, more than half of those people went to the hospital with me. They are still lying in the hospital now.”
Wen Yufeng paused. “What else do you guys still want to do? Break their hands and legs?”
“They dared to stab Brother Yu, breaking their hands and legs would be light pun……”
Li Xiang stood to the side and muttered. His lowered gaze did not let go of his fierce emotions.
Wen Yufeng’s eyes turned cold.
He could hear more from Li Xiang’s words.
The boy looked up again and swept his gaze over everyone.
In the end, he noticed and confirmed the details that were different and his expression finally turned cold.
Seeing that the pressure around Wen Yufeng’s body seemed to be getting lower and lower, everyone looked at each other with a slightly smug gaze. The atmosphere in the stairwell became even more tense, as if it could be completely broken with a bang at any moment.
Under this suffocating pressure, Li Xiang finally could not take it anymore. He broke the silence and braced himself to take the first step.
“Brother Yu, I ——”
Before he could finish his sentence, the fierce wind of a fist swept through the air. Li Xiang forgot to resist and instinctively closed his eyes.
“Bang!” Li Xiang was ready to fall to the ground.
A few seconds later, he suddenly realized something. He opened his eyes and looked to the side.
Everyone was supporting Zhao Zirui, who had been hit to the ground by a fist.
Li Xiang’s face turned red. He suddenly turned to look at Wen Yufeng, who was still standing there with his fists clenched ——”
“Brother Yu, this matter is my idea, Zhao Zirui just..”
Wen Yufeng coldly glanced at him, his voice low and hoarse.
Then, his gaze swept towards Zhao Zirui, who was gradually being helped up by everyone.
“Do you know why I hit you?”
Zhao Zirui smiled bitterly as he rubbed his cheeks and steadied himself. “It’s my fault I didn’t stop Li Xiang and the others.”
“You didn’t just not stop them! You didn’t stop!”
Wen Yufeng’s voice was so low that it was almost terrifying. He loosened his grip on his fist. “I’ve already told you that Li Xiang is impulsive and makes mistakes easily. When you’re by his side, you must look after him——So what did you do?”
Wen Yufeng’s gaze swept over the crowd once again. When it stopped on their bulging pockets or clothes, his gaze almost shot out like a knife.
He spun round and landed on Li Xiang.
Previously, when he saw Zhao Zirui being mercilessly swung to the ground by Wen Yufeng, the killing intent in Li Xiang’s heart had long since faded. Now that he was gazed at by Wen Yufeng like this, his heart became even more uneasy and he lowered his head.
Wen Yufeng’s eyes were cold as he walked over.
When he arrived in front of Li Xiang, he stopped and lowered his voice——
“Li Xiang, I know you look down on those b*stards in society.”
Wen Yufeng raised his left hand and pulled out the tightly clenched folding knife from Li Xiang’s tightly guarded pocket.
His gaze swept across the blade, but when he raised his head again, his gaze was even more chilling than the blade. It was as if two cold spears had nailed Li Xiang’s heart to the spot——
“But if you bring them to find someone to risk their lives tonight——then what’s the difference between you and those who are not afraid of death?”
Wen Yufeng grabbed Li Xiang’s tightly clenched right hand and forcefully pushed his five fingers apart with one hand. Then, he slapped the folding blade heavily on his palm.
“If you want to be that kind of scum in the future, then get lost as soon as possible.”
As he spoke these words, he suddenly twisted his body and fiercely swept his gaze over the others intently——
“You guys are the same.”
After saying that, Wen Yufeng had nothing else to say and immediately turned to walk back.
When he walked past Zhao Zirui, he stopped and raised his eyes slightly.
The boy’s voice was low and hoarse. Zhao Zirui came back to his senses and shook his head.
Wen Yufeng seemed to want to raise his hand to pat Zhao Zirui’s shoulder, but just as his right hand was about to lift an inch, he suddenly frowned.
After a moment, Wen Yufeng did not say anything else and walked out of the staircase.
Zhao Zirui turned around and hesitantly chased after him.
“I’ve implicated you ……”
Li Xiang walked to his side and sighed.
Zhao Zirui’s attention was drawn back to him. “It’s my problem that I didn’t stop you this time, and you even fell out with me. It’s only right for me to receive a punch.”
Li Xiang opened his mouth but did not say anything for a long time.
In the end, he rubbed his hair regretfully. “I just can’t suppress my anger…I really wanted to make those grandsons feel like they were cut by knives and stitches.”
Zhao Zirui was silent for a moment.
“Brother Yu is right, we shouldn’t go tonight——at least we shouldn’t take these things along.”
Li Xiang put away the folding knife in his pocket.
Zhao Zirui didn’t look at him. He just turned to look in the direction Wen Yufeng had left. “Do you understand Brother Yu? If we get involved in something like this the stigma wouldn’t be taken off for the rest of our lives.”
Li Xiang’s head drooped as he replied. After a while, he looked up and saw that Zhao Zirui was still looking in that direction. He couldn’t help but ask curiously,” What are you looking at?”
Zhao Zirui turned around and frowned. “Do you remember which hand Brother Yu used to hit me?”
“Why do you hold a grudge like that?” Li Xiang had just finished speaking when his expression changed.
He raised his legs and started to run. “It was his right hand! It got stitched this afternoon!”
Zhao Zirui pulled him back.
Li Xiang anxiously said, “What are you pulling me for? If he loses too much blood, something bad will happen!”
Zhao Zirui rolled his eyes at him. “Do you think Brother Yu has the same brain as you? Since he didn’t say anything, he wants to deal with it by himself. What were you going to do? Wasn’t this enough to upset him today?”
Li Xiang was reprimanded by Zhao Zirui until he simmered down. He wilted and retreated back.
Qin Qing found Wen Yufeng in front of the sink on the class 6 floor.
The lights on the side of the sink were broken, and only the yellow and quiet lights outside the building shone down from the window. The slender boy standing in front of the sink was covered in a thin light.
However, even though the light was dim, Qin Qing could still clearly see the beautiful frown on his handsome face and the red bandages after he pulled on the loose long sleeves of the sweater.
The red color pierced her eyes.
Qin Qing had always thought that she was afraid of pain and blood.
Not only in herself but also in others.
But at this moment, she didn’t know where the courage came from, it was actually able to support her as she clenched her teeth and walked over.
In this quiet night, where only the sound of water was clear, Wen Yufeng suddenly heard a sound behind him.
It was soft and carried some unconcealable fear.
Anger flashed across his eyes.
Perhaps the pain had paralyzed his five senses, but he had not noticed the girl’s approach.
Wen Yufeng sighed and turned around. At the same time, a thin smile appeared in his eyes.
“The papers, I will ——”
His voice came to a sudden stop, and his right arm, which had been hiding half behind him, also stopped in the air.
The boy frowned.
Standing opposite him, the girl’s eyes were clearly red.
“Who bullied you?”
Thinking about it, he could only think of this possibility. Wen Yufeng’s eyes became sharp when he spoke.
Qin Qing shook her head forcefully, then bit her lower lip and looked up at Wen Yufeng——
“This afternoon…Did you go out to fight?”
Wen Yufeng’s eyebrows furrowed even tighter.
“Who told you that?”
His voice was low and clearly displeased.
Qin Qing took a deep breath and forcefully asked, “Isn’t it?”
It was obvious that the girl rarely spoke like this. Her voice was so loud that it couldn’t be controlled, and there was a hint of tears.
Wen Yufeng’s heart ached from hearing this, but he was at a loss for words about the situation in front of him.
This was his first time facing such a situation. He didn’t even know how to deal with it, and he was afraid that one step or one sentence would make the girl even more upset.
In the end, he could only sigh. He bent down and tried his best to reach the height of the girl’s eyes.
“The fight today was an accident. I didn’t mean to skip class.”
Qin Qing listened to the comforting words in her ears, but she could not control her gaze and ran towards Wen Yufeng’s right arm.
Later, she decided to stop covering up.
Qin Qing stretched out her hand and grabbed the corner of Wen Yufeng’s sweater as if she was afraid that he would run away.
“Let me have a look.”
Wen Yufeng’s eyes flashed, and the anger in his eyes rose once, but he quickly suppressed it.
His thin lips lifted into an indecent arc.
“What do you want to see…Tiantian?”
He deliberately suppressed his voice to a low and hoarse voice as he moved closer to the girl.
His burning breath almost blew against the girl’s delicate neck, and his eyes that were so close at hand could be said to be extremely dangerous. If it had been in the past, perhaps Qin Qing would have run away as soon as possible.
But at this moment, she held the corner of the boy’s clothes and refused to let go. Gritting her tiny teeth, she endured the fear and raised her little face to look into Yufeng’s eyes——
“Let me see…Your injury.”
Faced with such a serious expression, Wen Yufeng was stunned.
When he came back to his senses, he narrowed his eyes.
“Are you…worried about me?”
His voice was filled with uncertainty.
Qin Qing didn’t pay any attention to what he was saying at the moment. She just stubbornly grabbed onto his clothes.
Wen Yufeng could not resist Qin Qing’s insistence and extended his right arm that was behind him.
In fact, he suddenly wanted to see how his little deskmate would react after seeing his injuries.
Qin Qing did not fail to live up to Wen Yufeng’s expectations. When she saw the bright red color under the bandage at close range, her gentle breathing became hurried and the emotions that she had managed to calm down with great difficulty surged again.
Qin Qing’s eyes reddened again.
Wen Yufeng’s eyes darkened.
Unlike before, when he saw the girl’s reaction, he felt his heart ache, but he also wanted to see her look even more sad for him.
Perhaps…Would she cry?
If she were to cry while clutching the corner of his clothes, would her voice be as hoarse and soft as before? She might even choke a little, but her eyes were as beautiful as water…
Wen Yufeng felt as if there was a burning tongue of fire in his heart, burning his limbs and bones until they were filled with agitation.
After a while, Wen Yufeng forced himself to turn his gaze away from the girl’s face.
He cursed softly.
—— If this continued, he would probably become a pervert.
Qin Qing was also jolted back to her senses by the boy’s voice. She gently clenched her fingertips and forced herself to regain her rationality.
Then she raised her head and looked at Wen Yufeng. “I’ll accompany you to the hospital.”
Wen Yufeng instinctively wanted to refuse, but after his brain reacted to the word “I’ll accompany you”, the words that came to his mouth automatically quieted down.
“Wait for me at the classroom door. I’ll go ask Teacher Shen for leave.”
With that said, Qin Qing loosened her grip and walked towards the office without looking back.
The black ponytail which was tied high, swayed from left to right behind the girl.
The boy slowly straightened up and narrowed his eyes.
He felt that he was probably hypnotized by the beautiful ponytail and its owner.
……Moreover, he might never wake up.
In the middle of the first lesson of evening self-study, Qin Qing left the school with Wen Yufeng, holding the slip that she had a cold and fever and needed to go home to rest.
After leaving the school, the two of them took a taxi from the school gate and rushed to the nearest hospital.
At this time, the hospital was already almost empty. Only the lights in the emergency building and ward area were still flashing in the night.
Seeing Wen Yufeng’s arms exposed to prevent infection under Qin Qing’s request, especially the long bloody mark on the bandage, the driver did not dare to delay and rushed to the downstairs of the emergency building.
Qin Qing pulled Wen Yufeng out of the car and entered the emergency room. She quickly completed the medical records and registration.
The girl was very skilled in the process. Obviously, she was no stranger to the emergency treatment process.
So, just as Qin Qing returned to Wen Yufeng with the medical record card and registration slip and was about to take him to the doctor in charge, Wen Yufeng pulled her thin arm.
“Do you often come to the hospital?”
The boy’s brows furrowed uncontrollably, and his eyes looked dangerous.
In addition, the arm that was exposed on the outside was clearly not an ordinary injury. Many of the eyes that were focused on his body had all dispersed like lightning.
However, Qin Qing did not look afraid of him at all.
“A cold and a fever are resistance problems. At least I won’t go to the hospital because of a fight.”
Wen Yufeng: “……”
He could tell.
His little classmate had gone through the whole process of accepting it, and now, she had obviously lost all of her fear. All that was left was the aura of settling accounts after.
Big Boss Wen was dragged out to the consultation doctor’s office by his classmate.
Qin Qing frowned when she was a few steps away from the clinic.
She looked hesitantly at the rest area beside the consulting room.
A few men, who looked like drunkards and exuded the smell of alcohol, were leaning against each other.
There were two people with dirty stains and bloody marks on their bodies.
One of the drunkards seemed to have noticed Qin Qing’s gaze. He raised his head and gave Qin Qing an ugly smile. At the same time, he raised his crotch obscenely.
However, before Qin Qing could see it clearly, a slender and bony hand had blocked her eyes.
Qin Qing was stunned. She turned to look at the boy standing beside her.
However, the boy did not look at her. Instead, he looked disdainfully at the bench in the rest area.
The slightly raised fair eyes were curved into a cold and vicious arc, and the two starry eyes were shining with cold light.
Just one glance was enough to make it look like a ferocious beast that had chosen to devour others.
It was only when the man withdrew his gaze from Qin Qing in embarrassment and fear that he coldly swept his gaze away.
He lowered his left hand, which had wrapped around the girl’s shoulder, and brought her into the clinic.
The doctor in the clinic raised his head and was shocked by the appearance of the patient and his family.
Qin Qing snapped back to her senses and broke free from Wen Yufeng’s restraints. She walked to the doctor with her medical record card and registration slip and pulled Wen Yufeng over.
Wen Yufeng did not say anything the entire time. He only used his pair of black eyes to unblinkingly hold the girl’s figure. His handsome and stern face still had a faint smile on it.
Looking at his lazy posture, people probably wouldn’t think that he was the one who had been stabbed and had had more than a dozen stitches.
Even the consulting doctor thought that this young girl was making a fuss over nothing when he looked at Wen Yufeng.
Until he saw the boy’s bloody bandages.
The consulting doctor frowned——
“How could this be caused by him only writing a few words? He didn’t do anything else violent?”
Qin Qing originally wanted to nod, but before she was halfway there, she suddenly remembered she hadn’t seen Wen Yufeng during evening self-study for a bit…
Qin Qing looked at the boy suspiciously.
Their gazes collided.
Wen Yufeng slowly withdrew his gaze and looked at the doctor, writing.
“Just a punch with my fist and nothing else.”
There was no need for the doctor to say anything. Qin Qing’s eyes were wide open as she looked at Wen Yufeng.
She stared at the boy annoyed.
When the doctor saw this, he sighed and interrupted their conversation.
“It’s most likely that the wound has collapsed. Let’s re-anesthetize then stitch.”
On the other side, Qin Qing, who had yet to calm down, was startled. She turned to the doctor and asked, “You want to stitch again?”
The girl’s voice sounded a little uncertain.
“Yes, I have to sew it again.”
As the doctor said that, he started to print the medicine list.
After he finished, he handed it to Qin Qing. “Go to the pharmacy and get him the sterilizer for stitches and anesthesia.”
Qin Qing seemed to be immersed in the shock that he had to sew again. She took the sheet and walked out.
Wen Yufeng frowned and followed.
“I’ll come with you.”
The doctor didn’t have time to stop him before his patient followed her out.
A few minutes later, Qin Qing and Wen Yufeng, who had returned with the medicine, entered the consulting room.
The doctor took it and examined it before looking at Qin Qing.
Hearing this, Wen Yufeng paused.
……He remembered that when he had just returned, the drunkard outside had not left yet.
Qin Qing frowned and looked at Wen Yufeng’s arm. She prepared to leave.
But before she could take a step, her wrist was grabbed by the person beside her.
Qin Qing looked up at Wen Yufeng in confusion.
Wen Yufeng looked at the doctor with an unchanged expression, his thin lips slightly lifted——
“I’m afraid, so you can let her stay in the clinic with me?”
Qin Qing: “……”
The doctor: “…………”
After an awkward silence, the responsible doctor nodded slowly and speechlessly.
The preparations went smoothly to the last step with the help of someone who admitted to being “afraid “.
It was time for the anesthetic to take effect. Before the consulting doctor went to get the disposable equipment bag, he hesitated for a moment and frowned at Wen Yufeng.
“The anesthetic effect of anesthesia is different for different patients. In addition to the fact that you were just injected the anesthesia a few hours ago and this wound is a continuous open wound, the anesthetic effect of this injection is not 100% guaranteed…It might hurt a little during the process.”
Hearing this, Wen Yufeng shifted his gaze away from the girl who was even more nervous than him.
The corner of his lips lifted slightly, and his black eyes were calm.
The blue surgical cover on the other side was covered, revealing only the malevolent wounds. The doctor picked up the disinfection equipment and opened them one by one.
Qin Qing was so frightened by the wound and the instrument that her face turned pale. Her clear eyes were slightly pale, as if she was the one who was going to be stitched.
After two seconds, she slowly turned her head around and her soft voice trembled.
“Wen Yufeng…Are you afraid?”
Wen Yufeng lightly raised his eyebrows and the corners of his lips also rose.
His voice was tinged with a hoarse smile.
Qin Qing couldn’t be bothered to tell the difference and stretched out her small hand and held his hand.
The girl’s fingertips were cold.
“……Then what should I do?”
Her voice was almost filled with tears.
Wen Yufeng was hooked by that voice, and his eyes suddenly darkened, like two ancient wells that could not be seen.
After a few seconds, he opened his mouth.
“……If you kiss me, I should be fine.”
