Luo ZhouZhou only felt his heart stop beating at that moment, and he cried out, “Why are you still here?” Seeing the anger rising on Qi Fen’s face, he quickly added, “I didn’t see anything just now.”
Qi Fen then asked through gritted teeth, “Didn’t I ask you to deliver the documents? Why is it here?”
“Yes, I’m just here to drop the files off,” Luo ZhouZhou replied.
“Does the label address on the folders say Case Department?” Qi Fen continued to gnash his teeth, “Luo ZhouZhou, you are at least a student from Tylen College, it’s fine if you don’t know the basics, but now you can’t even read?”
“They don’t say Case Department… but Pathology Department instead.” Luo ZhouZhou’s voice grew increasingly quieter.
“Then you should hurry and send it to the Pathology Department.” Qi Fen yelled, his voice echoing in the passage.
Like a frightened lamb, Luo ZhouZhou jumped up and dashed back to the pharmacy. He knocked over a few medicine bottles and rushed back with the stack of documents.
As Qi Fen was blocking the doorway, not moving. Luo ZhouZhou didn’t dare to ask him to let him through, so he side-stepped and squeezed through the small gap. He also peeked at Qi Fen’s face to see if he was still angry.
“Luo ZhouZhou.” Just as he managed to squeeze his way out, Qi Fen suddenly spoke up, at a very low volume.
“Yes.” Luo ZhouZhou’s heart thudded.
According to the experience of dealing with Luo Pei, this kind of timing and tone meant that a reprimand would follow. But surprisingly, Qi Fen just looked at him in silence, without saying anything.
Just as Luo ZhouZhou was getting more and more scared, Qi Fen spoke up, “Turn right at the door, walk out of the passage, then turn left again, and you will see the Pathology Department.”
“Oh.” Luo ZhouZhou didn’t move, holding the files, and continued staring at him.
“Still not leaving?” Qi Fen bellowed, and the veins on his forehead jumped twice.
Luo ZhouZhou shivered all over, “Then I’m leaving.” He said, and ran away quickly.
Luo ZhouZhou was glad that Qi Fen wasn’t questioning him about seeing him kissing the old man, or else he wouldn’t have been able to answer. He soon arrived at the exit of the Case Department.
He stopped in front of room 001 and looked in again, just as Xiao Yu was also looking out, and their eyes collided. When Xiao Yu saw him, her eyes lit up and she grinned, wrinkles all over her face.
Luo ZhouZhou felt that she really wanted to talk to him, but he had to deliver the documents as soon as possible, so he could only say apologetically through the glass window, “Xiao Yu, I have something else to do, I’ll see you some other time.”
The light in Xiao Yu’s eyes dimmed, but she nodded her head, indicating that she understood.
Luo ZhouZhou said goodbye to her, and left the door of the Case Department.
When he returned to the lobby of the institute after sending the files, Qi Fen was already there, surrounded by several researchers, talking. Luo ZhouZhou slipped back to the logistics room quietly by the wall.
Lin Fan plopped down on the only sofa in the logistics room, his legs stretched out. When he saw Luo ZhouZhou, he held out his hands to show them to him.
“Look, I’ve just been sent to move a box, and it was so heavy, my hands are all red,” he said. Afterwards, he howled to the sky, “When will this hard life end?”
Qi Fen happened to pass by and looked up at them coolly. It scared Lin Fan to sit up straight, not daring to complain.
They sat in silence for a while, and then it was time for lunch.
The lunch at the institute was quite sumptuous, and every day a food cart was pushed by someone to bring the food that the researchers had ordered in the morning.
When he heard the sound of food wheels sliding in the hall, Lin Fan asked Luo ZhouZhou, “Did you order today? I just moved boxes and missed the ordering time.”
Luo ZhouZhou shook his head and said, “I was delivering documents and didn’t order either.”
“Then let’s go to the cafeteria to eat.” Lin Fan rubbed his belly and stood up, “The cafeteria has more food, you can have anything you want.”
Except for fresh blood, Luo ZhouZhou thought to himself.
However, he still went downstairs with Lin Fan and headed to the cafeteria.
Passing by the lab, he saw that Qi Fen was still doing experiments, and his food was put aside.
“Go quickly.” Lin Fan pulled him along and whispered, “The director is a workaholic, don’t let him stop you.”
“Lin Fan, do you know what disease those people have in the Case Department of our institute?” Walking along the avenue in front of the military building, Luo ZhouZhou hesitantly asked Lin Fan.
“Case Department? Aren’t the doors there locked? I’ve never been in there, I don’t know what’s inside.” Lin Fan looked suspiciously at Luo ZhouZhou, “What kind of disease do those people have, did you go in and see a patient?”
Luo ZhouZhou realized that he had let his mouth slip, and to avoid bringing Qi Fen up too, he quickly shut his mouth.
Lin Fan was intrigued by his curiosity and kept asking questions, but Luo ZhouZhou never said anything, only repeating, “I don’t know. I won’t tell.”
“What did you see? What patient? Tell me about it, I promise not to tell anyone.” Lin Fan was still asking questions, like a noisy sparrow, making Luo ZhouZhou regret asking him that question.
“I was just curious, just thought——” As he was thinking of a countermeasure, Lin Fan stopped abruptly, and the man stood still. He followed Lin Fan’s gaze and saw the training ground in front of him, where several Alphas were training and an officer was standing next to them.
“Zhou Zhou, I’m not eating, you can go eat by yourself.” Lin Fan looked at the officer and looked a little panicked.
Luo ZhouZhou stood still, Lin Fan reached out and pulled him behind a tree on the side of the road and said, “See that guy? I’m avoiding him. He’s pursuing me, but he’s not a good character, and he’s marked several Omegas, all of whom are dying for him. Look at me, where am I worthy of such a flirtatious Alpha?”
Lin Fan fingered the small freckles on his nose and showed his braces again, “He just has a crush on my chief of staff father, yuck.”
“Then why don’t you just refuse?” Luo ZhouZhou asked.
Lin Fan was a little depressed and said, “I’ve refused countless times, but he won’t listen to me. He probably thinks I’m just lying and still stops me every day. You see, if we go there like this, we’ll be blocked by him again and won’t be able to eat lunch. It’s better to just go back to the institute than to be disgusted.”
“Okay, I’ll go eat by myself,” Luo ZhouZhou said.
As soon as the conversation ended, he heard a male voice from the front, “Lin Fan, are you going to eat? I will accompany you.”
Luo ZhouZhou heard the voice and saw that it was the officer they were just talking about.
The man came over, but his eyes stopped on Luo ZhouZhou’s face and flew over him from head to toe, his eyes shining.
He didn’t know what came to mind, but the man looked regretful again.
“Lin Fan let’s go, we’re going to eat together, right? Aren’t you hungry?” He turned to Lin Fan with a gentle and thoughtful smile.
Luo ZhouZhou felt that this smile was not real and looked very discomforting.
With a straight face, Lin Fan said, “Wang Wei, please don’t pester me anymore, I don’t want to eat with you.”
Wang Wei was unmoved, but smiled instead and said in a tolerant tone, “Are you throwing a tantrum again? Still acting like a child with other people present.”
After saying that, he looked at Luo ZhouZhou and asked Lin Fan, “Is this your friend? Introduce me to him.”
Lin Fan’s face reddened, and a few small freckles became even more pronounced.
As if afraid of other passersby hearing him, he lowered his voice and said, “Wang Wei, I refuse your pursuit, please really don’t look for me anymore, there is no chance between us.”
Wang Wei looked at the few freckles, his eyes faintly showed boredom, but his tone was gentler, “What are you talking about? After Lieutenant Lin introduced us to each other, I am very serious, I have taken you as my future Omega.”
After saying that he reached out to pull Lin Fan out. Lin Fan made a strong effort to shake his arm, but it was firmly held.
“He hates you.” Luo ZhouZhou, who had been silent beside him, suddenly spoke up.
Lin Fan and Wang Wei both stopped and looked blankly at Luo ZhouZhou.
Luo ZhouZhou continued, “He thinks you have a bad character, and I think so too, because you’ve looked at me several times since you came over. It wasn’t a normal look, it stayed on my face for five seconds, then on my waist, hip, and leg, respectively, for at least three seconds.”
Wang Wei’s face instantly darkened, he let go of Lin Fan’s hand and asked, “Who is this? Why is he talking nonsense in front of me?”
Luo ZhouZhou looked at Lin Fan and saw that he had no intention to object, so he said with a serious face, “I’m not talking nonsense, you just looked at the freckles on Lin Fan’s face and showed an expression of disgust, you actually don’t like Lin Fan at all.”
Wang Wei pressed his anger down, looked at the pedestrians passing by, and said in a low voice, “It’s none of your business whether I like Lin Fan or not, and besides, I really like him.”
“No, you don’t like Lin Fan, I can see it in your eyes.” Luo ZhouZhou shook his head and said, “If you like his father, why don’t you go after him yourself, but not his son? You’re not sane.”
As soon as this was said, not to mention Wang Wei, even Lin Fan turned his head and looked at Luo ZhouZhou with a peculiar look.
“Don’t you ever look for Lin Fan or his father again, don’t you have others? Just be good to them.” Luo ZhouZhou said.
The three of them were standing in the middle of the road blocking the way. People passing by heard Luo ZhouZhou’s words and looked at them sideways, especially Wang Wei.
Wang Wei, who had to endure all kinds of strange stares, finally couldn’t go on any longer. Seeing that his quest was hopeless, he didn’t want to pretend any longer, so he viciously threw down a sentence, “You’ll see,” and hurriedly left.
Watching Wang Wei walk away, Lin Fan looked Luo ZhouZhou up and down, shocked and admiring, “ZhouZhou, you actually got rid of this Wang Wei plaster, so amazing, no wonder you could get three Alphas around you. But what I started to say was that he was interested in my father’s power, I didn’t say he was interested in my father.” Lin Fan remembered Luo ZhouZhou’s words and the eyes of the people around him, and couldn’t help but feel sympathy for Wang Wei.
He put his arm around Luo ZhouZhou’s shoulders and said, “If there is anything you want help with, just let me know. As repayment for helping me drive Wang Wei away.”
Luo ZhouZhou ignored the statement that the three Alphas were surrounding him and only listened to what he said about repayment. He hesitated, listened to his pounding heartbeat, and said, “There is indeed something I need your help with.”
Three days later, Aleisha Alliance Hospital, evening.
Unlike other dignitaries, the Alliance Hospital was still lit up with people coming in and out, even though it was also under the management of the Military Ministry. At the bottom of the stairs facing the main entrance, two Omegas had been standing for a long time, surveying the hospital building and chatting quietly from time to time.
The security guard in the booth on the side of the building also stared at them for a long time. If it weren’t for the fact that the two Omegas were wearing very expensive clothing and the hospital in Aleisha had never been burglarized, he would have stepped up to question them long ago.
“So have you thought about it? Are you really going to steal the plasma?” Lin Fan rubbed his arm.
Luo ZhouZhou corrected, “It’s not stealing, I’ll put the money there. It’s to buy.”
Lin Fan: “Okay, buy it secretly.”
“But if you are sick, wouldn’t it be better for you to come to the hospital to get a blood transfusion from a doctor?” Lin Fan couldn’t help but ask again.
Seeing Luo ZhouZhou pursing his lips, he continued, “I know, I know, I won’t ask. But you must promise that you are not using this plasma to do bad things.”
Luo ZhouZhou raised his right hand to the side of his head and swore, “I promise.”
Seeing the people in the lobby taking the elevator up or leaving one after another, Lin Fan took a deep breath and resolutely claimed, “Go.”
