As soon as Tang Wenshao finished speaking, Xie Quan’s eyes, which had been somewhat dazed, sharpened, but his voice still sounded unmoving.

“What are you talking about?” Xie Quan’s first reaction was to check the glandular patch on the back of his neck, but the next thing he noticed was that his pheromone wasn’t leaking, which meant that the glandular patch hadn’t fallen off.

Tang Wenshao smiled warmly, soaked a cotton swab with warm water, and gently wiped it on Xie Quan’s dry and cracked lips. Xie Quan frowned in disgust, and then used the hand that was still infused to block Tang Wenshao’s, and his eyes, as clear as blue water after snow, stared at Tang Wenshao warily.

Tang Wenshao also did not force it. The water cup and cotton swab were still in his hand, and he crossed his legs, giving a casual look. He was a steady and honest looking man with a harmless smile. “I’m a doctor, a glandular doctor. You can’t hide whether you’re a beta or an omega.”

Xie Quan stared intently at Tang Wenshao, but did not say anything, yet his mind was racing right now. The softness of his body was indeed a symptom of the anesthesia that he had just woken up from. He’d had surgery, as the man said, so does the doctor that performed the surgery know that he’s an omega? However, this man also said that he helped him to hide this matter, how credible is it?

Tang Wenshao said, as if he could read minds, “You can trust me, although I don’t know why you’re pretending to be beta, but if you want to hide it, I’ll help you hide it.”

Xie Quan said suspiciously, “On what grounds?”

Tang Wenshao laughed cheerfully, this kid really did not trust people at all. He replied, “I like the beauty of being an adult.”

Xie Quan was about to continue to ask, when the door of the ward was opened. Ji Cheying came in and saw Xie Quan awakening, his eyebrows relaxed. “Xie Quan, you’re awake?”

Then, he saw Tang Wenshao sitting next to him with a glass of water and a cotton swab. “Dr. Tang?”

Tang Wenshao stood up from his chair and immediately greeted, “Ji…”

Ji Cheying coughed twice.

Tang Wenshao immediately changed his tone with kindness. “Mr. Ji is here, I came to confirm the patient’s condition.”

At that, Ji Cheying raised his eyebrows with some suspicion. “A doctor from the glandular department?” This department is not too far across.

Tang Wenshao hurriedly straightened his back and looked like he was standing by. He replied respectfully, “Dr. Noel suddenly had a surgery scheduled, and I have a good relationship with her, so I was asked to come and check on Mr. Xie’s condition. You can rest assured that Dr. Noel will come over to check on him personally when she finishes her surgery.”

Ji Cheying noticed that Xie Quan’s eyes were looking at both of them, his eyes showing doubt. He hurriedly took a few steps up to Tang Wenshao’s side, casually patted his shoulder and said, “Hahahaha, I just asked, the doctor need not be so nervous, I will not go to complain.”

The hand subtly used a little force. Tang Wenshao quickly said with a sarcastic smile, “Yes, yes, it’s good to understand.”

“And how is he doing now?”

“Mr. Xie is recovering well, but please make sure to rest in bed more these days, no strenuous exercise, and it’s better to use nutritional supplements for now, and wait until tomorrow to eat some easily digestible food.”

Ji Cheying memorized every word carefully in his mind. “Then I won’t bother the doctor.”

Noticing that Tang Wenshao seemed to subconsciously want to bow, Ji Cheying stopped him by pressing his hand firmly on his shoulder, and then he saw Tang Wenshao nodding honestly.

As soon as he released his hand, Tang Wenshao ran away as fast as he could. Before he left, he shoved the cup and cotton swab at Ji Cheying.

As soon as Ji Cheying turned his head, he met Xie Quan’s piercing gaze.

“…”

Ji Cheying smiled calmly and said, “This doctor is really a little bit timid, he was afraid of me for just saying something casually. Seems like the hospital takes their visitors’ opinions seriously, haha.”

Xie Quan stared unblinkingly at Ji Cheying, without a trace of expression on his face.

Ji Cheying, with a glass of water in one hand and a cotton swab in the other, sat down where Tang Wenshao had been sitting earlier, and he didn’t avoid Xie Quan’s aggressive stare. “Are you thirsty? I’ll give you some water.”

“…”

Xie Quan had the urge to roll his eyes, but he didn’t have the habit, so he could only silently avert his gaze and turn his head away. “No need, Dr. Tang fed me just now.”

Ji Cheying frowned unhappily at this. “Why did he feed you?”

“He was bored.”

Ji Cheying wanted to say that he was actually quite bored too, but finally gave up and put something on the bedside table.

A pair of eyes looked Xie Quan up and down several times, until Xie Quan felt unsettled by such a gaze. He could not help but turn back to look at Ji Cheying, and was about to ask the other why he kept staring at himself, when Ji Cheying spoke up. He frowned and asked dryly, “Are you still in pain?” A pair of deep, dark pupils were thick with worry and concern.

Xie Quan was stunned, and then he lowered his eyes. “I have analgesics, I don’t feel anything.” Remembering what happened before he passed out, he asked again, “How did you get there?”

Ji Cheying was silent for a second. “I went to see how you were recovering.” Thinking about the scene, Ji Cheying’s eyebrows were tinged with coldness. “That family is simply lawless.”

Speaking of which, Xie Quan asked, “What did you do to them?”

“I… I called the police, and they arrested them for provocation and attempted trespassing, and they’re still in jail.” They had been beaten half to death by Ji Cheying before they were taken in, except for Janice, who was an omega. Ji Cheying didn’t use force against her, but with the others, he wouldn’t be polite.

Ji Cheying suddenly found Xie Quan abruptly silent. He thought it was Xie Quan’s pain, and immediately asked, “What’s wrong? Are you uncomfortable?” Since Xie Quan screamed out in his arms yesterday, he has been extremely sensitive to the “pain” thing.

“No…” Xie Quan felt a few moments of discomfort at Ji Cheying’s overreaction.

And it was true that it wasn’t because of the wound, he was just suddenly thinking about the fact that this man had saved several people from under his hands. Although it seemed to be for his own good, why did he feel that this man and himself seemed to be a bit at odds?

Xie Quan declared, “I just had a minor surgery, not a terminal illness, and I’m not disabled.”

Ji Cheying seemed confused. “No one said you were terminally ill or disabled.”

Xie Quan’s tone did not fluctuate. “But you acted like I thought I was terminally ill and disabled.”

“…” Ji Cheying exhaled deeply, lowering himself to his looming stance and leaning his back against the chair. He raised his legs and wrapped his arms around his chest. “Why don’t you blame me for bringing you to the hospital?”

This was too casual.

Xie Quan looked at the ceiling. “I’ve already had my stomach opened and sewn shut, what do I care about that?”

The ID card he forged wasn’t that watery, so it shouldn’t have been detected.

Ji Cheying listened to his description and the corners of his mouth twitched. It seemed that he was really angry.  He smiled helplessly and said, “It’s a minimally invasive surgery, not so much as a disembowelment.”

Xie Quan simply asked, “When can I be discharged?”

The lighting in the VIP room was very good, and with the warm sun shining in diagonally, reflecting on Xie Quan’s pale face, it looked like a pair of rippling eyes.

Ji Cheying restrained his gaze. “The doctor said you need to stay for a while.”

Xie Quan’s eyebrows knitted as he looked at Ji Cheying. “Didn’t you say it was minimally invasive surgery?”

Ji Cheying stood up, the corners of his mouth rose. “It’s not because your body is too weak, before saying that you should work out with me, but because various things were not implemented, after this time when your body recovers, you should work out with me properly.”

“…”

Ji Cheying was standing with his back to the sun, his features were in the shadows, and his starry eyes were deeper. He looked at Xie Quan and said tenderly, “You get some rest, I’ll see you later.”

After leaving the ward, Ji Cheying walked a few steps and pushed open the door at the end of the corridor.

Beyond the door was a stairwell, and two soldiers were standing on the side of the stairs guarding another door that led to the left wing of the floor: the quarantine area where the victims of the beta case were located.

“Major General Ji.” They saluted.

At this point, Ji Cheying regained his Major General Ji’s unapproachable demeanor and said to the two soldiers, “From today on, you will guard the floor below and don’t let anyone come up here.”

The two soldiers respectfully replied, “Yes, Major General.”

====

The next morning, after the nurse changed Xie Quan’s medication, Xie Quan asked, undeterred, “When can I be discharged?”

The nurse looked a little embarrassed. “Well… You can ask the doctor when he comes today.”

“Okay.”

The nurse smiled gently. “But your wound is recovering well, if you are tired of lying in bed, you can actually get out of bed and walk around more, so you can avoid the lack of blood flow in your legs. But please note, don’t go to the opposite corridor.”

Xie Quan smiled and was a bit puzzled. “Why?”

The nurse explained, “The patients living across the hall are special, they are all having  pheromone outbreaks, so it’s best not to go there. If you accidentally leak pheromone, it will easily affect the rest of the patients, so it’s best for people not to go there.”

Xie Quan’s eyes moved slightly. “Okay, thanks.”

After the nurse left soon after, Xie Quan laid quietly on the bed, then propped up his body from the bed. The surgery wound was not big, and he felt nothing now. Wearing slippers, Xie Quan walked out of the room as if nothing happened. He pushed open the door, walked to the stairwell, and then saw the door in front of him.

Although he had some misgivings about the nurse, Xie Quan pushed open the unsupervised door. There were two glass windows in the door, and Xie Quan stood in front of them and looked in—

The quiet quarantine area was guarded only by a few soldiers, and two doctors were discussing something with their heads down. Seeing the uniform on the soldiers, Xie Quan’s brow furrowed.

How come it was the Imperial Army again? He was chased by the Imperial Army before, so he ran to this city of right and wrong. How could he see the Imperial Army again after coming here? They were guarding the wards, so did the beta case have anything to do with them?

Just then, one of the two doctors suddenly raised his head and then looked precisely at Xie Quan’s location.

It was Tang Wenshao, who smiled at Xie Quan and waved, then pointed behind Xie Quan.

Xie Quan quickly turned his head with a sense of awareness and then met a compelling line of sight straight on. His breath caught and his body stiffened.

Ji Cheying looked at Xie Quan and asked, “What are you looking at?”
