Chapter 241: Awkward
Chapter 241: Awkward Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated "Mian, what's wrong?" Qin Chu hurriedly knocked on the door of the washroom. "I…I…." Huo Mian was too embarrassed to talk. "What happened?" Qin Chu was worried to death. "Qin Chu, my period came early." Huo Mian wanted to cry, but she couldn't let it out. Her period had always been perfectly on time, and she thought it wouldn't begin for another four days. However, it decided to suddenly come today, which left her not knowing what to do… "So… what should I do?" Qin Chu also didn't know what to do. A woman's menstrual cycle didn't seem to be something men could help with. "I don't think… there is any of it left at home, so could you buy some for me?" Huo Mian couldn't come out of the washroom because her pants were stained, so she had to hide inside. "Okay," Qin Chu awkwardly said that one word, and then he headed downstairs. Five minutes later, Huo Mian's phone rang… "Hello?" "Which brand do you want?" Qin Chu asked in all seriousness. "Uhm… any kind," "Length?" "Uhm… longer than 38 centimeters?" "For daytime or night time use?" "Ahem… a pack of each would be fine," "Okay." Qin Chu hung up. Huo Mian was tormented by this awkward conversation between her and Qin Chu. Men didn't seem to understand anything at all, but she couldn't blame Qin Chu, as this was the first time he went out to buy stuff like that. "Not only were there plenty of brands, but there were also different lengths, different ones for night or day, and even different materials such as mesh, cotton, or silk... It was too complicated, and too much information. Five minutes later, Qin Chu returned. From the washroom door, Huo Mian was shocked when he handed the bags of pads to her. There were more than twenty packages... "Why did you buy so much?" Huo Mian was speechless. "You can save it to use for later." "Okay… you really know how to prepare for a rainy day." Ten minutes later, Huo Mian finally slowly walked out from inside. Qin Chu pointed to a bowl on the coffee table. "Drink that." 'What's that?" Huo Mian froze. "Poison." "….." "It's brown sugar water, right?" Huo Mian guessed what it was from the deep red color. "Then why did you still ask if you knew?" "You know to make me brown sugar water? Talk about being knowledgeable." Huo Mian smiled and looked at Qin Chu. "I just searched on my phone, apparently it's good during times like this." "Okay, Mr. Qin, thank you for being considerate, you're as considerate as my Whisper." (TL note: it's a tampon brand) Qin Chu slightly frowned. "Whisper?" "Nevermind." Huo Mian didn't say anything more; she held up the bowl and finished all the brown sugar water. After all, it was prepared by her man. That night in bed, Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu, and hesitantly said, "I'm on my period today, can you sleep on your own bed? It's not so convenient for us tonight." "You say it as if I get to do things to you when you're not on your period." "…" "Go to sleep, don't worry about it." Before Huo Mian could say anything, Qin Chu directly let himself onto her bed. Huo Mian laid down unsettlingly… During her last few periods, she just happened to be working night shifts, so she managed to avoid him. However, this was the first time she slept with Qin Chu on her period, which felt somewhat strange. Huo Mian laid flat and felt sore around her waist; she would always get cramps on her first day. Plus, she also bled a lot on her first day, so she never slept well, because she didn't dare to move around so much. Suddenly, a hot hand pressed onto her stomach… It scared her… "You…" "They say that this could lessen the pain," Qin Chu softly rubbed her stomach after he spoke. Huo Mian now didn't know how to respond, "Did you search for this online as well?" "Yes." "Honey, could we discuss something for later?" "Yeah." "Could we not search for these random things anymore on the internet? I'm only on my period, I'm not pregnant, I don't want to be so needy." The truth was, she didn't mind Qin Chu searching these stuff up, but her stomach was too sensitive, and she couldn't stand him pressing his hand there. She felt completely overwhelmed… Qin Chu sighed slightly. "The internet is right." "What do you mean?" Huo Mian turned around to look at Qin Chu curiously. "Don't try to reason with a biological creature that bleeds seven days a month, because women are the most insane existence in the universe." Huo Mian was shocked once again… She should truly consider cutting off the home internet now. Letting Qin Chu go on the internet was basically inviting stress onto her sanity. The next morning, Huo Mian saw a familiar face during her shift at South Side. He froze when he saw Huo Mian as well. "Wei Dong?" Huo Mian was somewhat surprised.
