Bai Yaoyao thumped Duan Yanhao’s chest incessantly. She scratched and tickled him, so he could only let her down and say, “Look at you. Are you sure you can walk on your own?” His brows were tightly knitted as he said this.
Bai Yaoyao nodded and said, “Yes, I already did bungee jumping, so of course, going down the mountain isn’t a challenge.” Despite her words, Bai Yaoyao still looked lifeless.
As Duan Yanhao looked at her, he felt rather alarmed. He really didn’t understand why women always say such empty words. She clearly couldn’t hold on, yet she tried to put up a strong front.
Bai Yaoyao felt that her words were rather convincing, so she turned around and flashed Duan Yanhao a radiant smile. “I’m fine. If I want to become a soldier, I mustn’t be afraid to suffer. I’m just exhausted.” In reality, her tummy ached a little, but she didn’t want this handsome man to look down on her.
She also had her own pride.
Duan Yanhao looked at how Bai Yaoyao was putting up a strong front, and an odd sensation welled up in his heart. He walked in front of her and bent down. “I’ll carry you on my back. It’s pretty normal that way and won’t attract too much attention.”
Bai Yaoyao looked ahead and saw that there were others taking turns to carry each other down on their backs. She didn’t want to trouble Duan Yanhao, but she really couldn’t muster up enough strength anymore and brighten up her spirits.
Bai Yaoyao hesitated for a while and silently climbed on Duan Yanhao’s back. As he walked and stumbled, she fell asleep.
When Bai Yaoyao woke up, she looked around and thought that the place looked unfamiliar. It seemed like she was in a bedroom. Where was this place? And why was she here?
There were too many questions in her head. All of a sudden, however, Duan Yanhao walked in with a bowl of syrup water, breaking into her thoughts.
Seeing that Bai Yaoyao had woken up, his eyes lit up. “You’re awake. Drink this up.”
“What happened to me? Where am I?”
Duan Yanhao sat by the bed and said, “I know you didn’t want to go to the hospital, that’s why I brought you here. This is my house. Ever since we went down the mountain, you’ve been asleep. I’ve gotten my doctor to check on you. Your body is still weak, and he prescribed some medicine.”
Bai Yaoyao sat up. She still felt uncomfortable, especially in her lower body. After a moment, she was startled, and her face flushed red. Lowering her head, she asked, “Have you found out already?”
Duan Yanhao’s ears turned red too as he answered, “Your period… You shouldn’t be drinking cold drinks. Drink this syrup water, so you’ll feel better.”
When Bai Yaoyao took the bowl from his hands, she unintentionally noticed Duan Yanhao’s reddened ear lobes. “Duan Yanhao, I’m the one having my period. Why are you blushing too?” Didn’t all men know about periods? She even heard that they knew more about it than women themselves.
Duan Yanhao pursed his lips tightly and stood up. “Drink this first. I’ll prepare something for you to eat.” After saying this, he immediately left the room.
After leaving the room, Duan Yanhao heaved a sigh of relief.
Bai Yaoyao looked at how Duan Yanhao had frantically fled the scene and burst into laughter. This was the first time she saw that handsome man showing that kind of expression. It was adorable and a sight to behold.
After drinking the syrup water, Bai Yaoyao was taken aback, and her eyes widened instantly. She placed the bowl on the nightstand and dashed to the bathroom. When she removed her pants and saw the sanitary pad on her underwear, she almost fainted as she screamed. “Ahh!” Who had put it on for her? It couldn’t have been Duan Yanhao, could it?
If she could throw up now, Bai Yaoyao thought that she would probably vomit a lot of blood now.
When Duan Yanhao heard Bai Yaoyao’s scream, he rushed in and barged into the bathroom, witnessing that sight.
“Ahh! You!” Bai Yaoyao’s cheeks puffed up and flushed red as she hurriedly pulled up her pants. She was absolutely floored and stunned speechless.
