Chapter 250: Crush
Chapter 250: Crush Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated Su Yu immediately quieted down, obediently leaving the thermometer in his mouth. He sometimes wondered if Huo Mian came to this earth to reign hell over him. Why was he capable of flicking and dismissing other women, yet all his temper would disappear in front of her? Did she drug him? Or maybe this woman performed some kind of black magic on him? Huo Mian pulled up a chair and sat down by his bed, waiting to take his thermometer out. Every once in a while, Su Yu would sneak a glance at her… Huo Mian's head was down, as she was diligently filling out the report. Su Yu picked up his phone, quietly turned on his camera, and turned off the sound of the shutter. "Huo Mian." "Mhm?" Huo Mian looked up without thinking. He snatched a photo of her; it was dark outside, so the lighting wasn't good and the photo was a little blurry. However, he could still clearly see her delicate features. Her eyesight wasn't as good at night, so she always wore black-rimmed glasses during night shifts. The photo of that nurse in white was forever stored in Su Yu's cell phone. He had never saved a photo of any woman before, let alone taking a photo of one himself… "What do you want?" Not knowing what happened, Huo Mian asked. "Nothing, I just wanted to ask you what time it is." "Don't you have your phone?" Huo Mian answered with a question of her own. Then, she looked at the time and realized that it had been five minutes already. She reached out to take the thermometer out from Su Yu's mouth. After taking a look she said, "You're running a pretty high fever." "How high?" He was curious. "39.8 degrees." "Almost 40 degrees? Will I become stupid from the fever?" "From the way you're talking to me right now, I think we're way past stupidity." Su Yu immediately rolled his eyes at Huo Mian. Are they not capable of having a nice conversation? "What now?" "It's time to tell me if you have any last wishes..." Su Yu was speechless. "Come here, I promise I won't strangle you," Su Yu said, his eyes filled with fury. Huo Mian smiled, "You still have high spirits, you'll be fine. I'll administer physical cooling for you." Then, Huo Mian turned around to leave the room. She returned five minutes later, with a bunch of random stuff on her tray. "Do I need to take Tylenol?" "No, Tylenol has side effects, you don't want to take it unless it's absolutely necessary. It's not good for your kidney." Su Yu nodded, as if he was deep in thought, "You're right, I do need to take care of my kidney." (TL: kidney is related to s*x drive and power in bed in Chinese culture) Huo Mian rolled her eyes, "Take care of yourself and don't think about random stuff. It's no good for you." "It's the most basic human urge, you won't understand." "Fine, Mr. Stud, now I need you to shut up and lie down." Huo Mian pushed Su Yu's head down unreservedly. Then, she took out a fever cooling patch and placed it on his head. He immediately felt a cold sensation; it was a nice feeling. Then, Huo Mian handed him a popsicle, "Eat this." "What is this." "A popsicle." "This is for women, I won't eat it. I don't like sweet stuff." "This is to help lower your temperature, treat it as medicine." Huo Mian threw it into Su Yu's lap. He jumped at its temperature. "Women, seriously…" "Shh, shut it. I'm trying to watch my show." Huo Mian took out her headphones and turned her attention back to Descendants of the Sun. Su Yu lied in bed with a cooling patch on his forehead. He sucked on his popsicle and continued to sneak glances at Huo Mian. It was rare for her to sit so quietly by his side, and Su Yu suddenly wished that time would pass by a bit slower. After another hour or so, Huo Mian finished an episode. She took off her headphones and reached out to feel Su Yu's forehead.
