Lovely Allergen - Chap 23
Le Zhishi would never avoid his gaze, and it was no different this time. He blinked slowly with a relaxed expression. “I’m not afraid. You’re not a bad person. How can you lead me astray?”
“Everyone wants me to be like you.”
Song Yu pursed his lips. He felt that this answer was reasonable and could guess, but he was speechless for a moment.
“It’s cold outside. Let’s go in.”
He thought that Song Yu was just joking, but he really didn’t go to class. He stayed in his room for the whole afternoon. After dinner, Le Zhishi did his homework on the coffee table in the living room. He couldn’t concentrate today because he kept thinking about Song Yu’s wrist. So, he took out his phone and went online. He only searched for [What to do if your wrist hurts], but who knew that it would develop from a soft tissue injury to a comminuted fracture of the wrist.
Le Zhishi sat up in a panic and hurriedly wrapped himself in a thick knitted jacket. “Um … Aunt Rong, do you have any trash to take out? I’ll help you. ”
“Why are you so obedient?” Lin Rong took out a small bag from the trash can. “That’s all.”
Le Zhishi took it and ran away.
Cotton Candy leaned against the back of the sofa and watched him leave, wagging her tail.
Not long after, he rushed home. When he returned, Cotton Candy was waiting for him at the entrance. Lin Rong was busy doing yoga and said that the cut fruits were on the desk. Le Zhishi agreed, but he was afraid of being seen, so he hid the medicine he bought in his pocket and went upstairs.
After putting down the medicine, he saw Lin Rong’s cut pears and green apples on a small plate. Le Zhishi sat down and ate the fruit while reading the manual.
“Compound painkillers … promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis …”
I still have to put this on to stop the pain. Le Zhishi looked at the time. Song Yu should still be doing his homework. It would be too much of a bother if he went over directly. But what if he fell asleep later?
He thought of a way to get the best of both worlds.
Song Yu was doing a paper when he heard a knock on the door. He got up and opened the door. He didn’t expect it to be Le Zhishi with a backpack.
“Brother Song Yu, can I do my homework with you?” Le Zhishi asked expectantly.
“I have a question that I don’t know …” Just as he finished speaking, Cotton Candy waddled over to Le Zhishi’s feet and hugged his calf. He raised his head and asked, “Can I?”
Song Yu finally agreed. Le Zhishi walked in contentedly and saw Ju Zi sitting on Song Yu’s bed. She was playing with a ball of cat with her paws. He couldn’t help but feel a little envious.
“Move the chair yourself.”
Other than teaching materials and stationery, Le Zhishi’s desk also had a lot of drawing tools that he had bought with his own savings. Song Yu’s desk was one size bigger than his, but there were fewer things. It looked very clean. While Song Yu got up to look for books, Le Zhishi moved a chair from the balcony and placed it in front of the desk. He even moved it closer to the desk, so there was only a few centimeters between them.
“Brother Song Yu, you really didn’t go to class this afternoon?”
“Yeah.” Song Yu took a book from the bookshelf.
Le Zhishi asked again, “Didn’t your teacher look for you?”
“I asked for sick leave.”
“Isn’t that a lie?” Le Zhishi whispered.
“Fighting, skipping class, lying.” Song Yu turned around and tilted his head expressionlessly. “Is that bad enough?”
Le Zhishi was seriously considering this question, but another part of his mind was sighing. The glasses were really nice, and he wanted a pair too.
Seeing that Le Zhishi was in a daze, Song Yu gave up trying to get an effective response from him. “Didn’t you say there are questions you don’t know? What are they?” He also sat down and pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose. “I’ll give you fifteen minutes. After that, I’ll go to bed.”
Le Zhishi glanced at the desk. “But aren’t you still doing the test …”
“There’s only one question left.”
Le Zhishi had no choice but to bite the bullet and ask a question at the last minute, afraid that Song Yu would see through it. Fortunately, Song Yu didn’t say anything. He took the question and looked at it seriously.
Just as he was feeling uneasy, he suddenly heard Song Yu speak.
“You just went out.”
There wasn’t even the slightest hint of doubt in his tone, as if he was very certain.
Le Zhishi’s eyes widened. “How did you know?”
Song Yu didn’t look up. He was still looking at the question he gave and said very casually, “You have a very cold smell on you.”
The smell of winter.
This statement was very subtle. Le Zhishi lowered his head and sniffed at his collar. He didn’t smell anything special. Instead, he immediately smelled the faint scent of Song Yu’s shower gel. It smelled very good, and it was very fragrant with the smell of his quilt. It was very reassuring.
However, Song Yu didn’t give him too much time to study the smell. He directly began to teach the question.
The little Pomeranian jumped onto Le Zhishi’s knee. She nestled in his arms and poked her little head out to listen to her brother’s lecture.
After hurriedly glancing at the question, Le Zhishi realized that he should know the answer to this question. However, after listening for a while, he realized that Song Yu was talking about another solution. It saved a lot of steps compared to the conventional method taught by the teacher in class. It was originally just an excuse. He didn’t expect that he would listen so seriously that he forgot about the medicine delivery.
“Do you understand?”
Le Zhishi nodded and took the exercise book. He was afraid that he would forget, so he quickly sorted out the solution and wrote it down. After a long period of learning and training, the process of answering questions seemed to have been engraved in his body. Following his psychological inertia, he began to do the next question. It was a somewhat complicated proof question. Le Zhishi tried to analyze the information given by the question. He didn’t expect that in such a short time, Song Yu had already finished the last question on his paper.
He took off his glasses and put them on the table. He got up and went to bed without saying a word.
When he lifted the quilt, the orange cat seemed to have an omen and jumped out of bed, meowing. Le Zhishi also made a puzzled sound with a questioning tone.
“I’m done with the questions. Go back and do your homework. I’m going to sleep.”
“I, I still have questions. Wait a minute …” Le Zhishi flipped through the exercise book. Song Yu knew that he was just looking for an excuse. He reached out to take the eye mask on the bedside table and put it on. He looked like he was going to sleep immediately.
“Don’t sleep, brother.” Le Zhishi saw that he couldn’t pretend anymore. He picked up the dog and the bulging bag and ran to Song Yu’s bed. He sat on the ground, unzipped the bag, and poured out all the medicine boxes.
Song Yu frowned and turned around in disgust. “Are you cold? What are you doing?” He pulled a beige pillow from the bed and threw it at Le Zhishi.
“I’m not cold.” Le Zhishi placed the pillow on the wooden floor and sat cross-legged on it. Cotton Candy happily snuggled into his arms again. “Song Yu, brother, I bought some medicine. Let me see your hand.”
“No, I’m fine.” Song Yu coldly refused.
“It’s useful.” Le Zhishi saw that his questioning was fruitless. He got up and carefully lifted the corner of the quilt to look for Song Yu’s hand. In the end, Song Yu slapped him in the face. “Go back to sleep.”
Le Zhishi took the opportunity to grab his hand. He was afraid of hurting his wrist, so he only held the first half of his fingers. After making sure that Song Yu didn’t struggle, he gently held his wrist. “Does it hurt? I’ll put a painkiller on it and it won’t hurt anymore. ”
Song Yu’s tone was a little impatient, but he didn’t pull his hand away as Le Zhishi expected. “No need. It’s too ugly.”
“But this is very useful. I bought a very expensive one. The aunt at the pharmacy said that it won’t hurt anymore.” Le Zhishi looked at his wrist. The bruises on it were more obvious than during the day. The wrist bone was also a little swollen. It was very similar to the symptoms of soft tissue injury described on the Internet.
“I said I don’t need it.”
Feeling that Song Yu was very resistant to the plaster, Le Zhishi negotiated again. “Then why don’t you use this gel? The aunt said that it can also remove blood stasis and relieve pain …”
“I just want to sleep now.” Song Yu interrupted his drug promotion.
“It’s okay. You go to sleep.” Le Zhishi deliberately grabbed the cat and put it in Song Yu’s arms. “I’ll apply the medicine for you. I promise it’ll be very light. You won’t feel anything at all.”
How could he not feel anything?
With the blindfold blocking his vision, Song Yu quietly opened his eyes. There was a faint light through the cloth, gently covering his eyes. Obviously, he couldn’t see, but he could completely picture Le Zhishi lying on the edge of the bed.
“Squeeze a little first. It might be a little cold. I’ve read the instructions. There’s peppermint in it.”
Le Zhishi was very thorough. He read the instructions more seriously than he read the questions. His hands were very warm. He pushed the cold gel away and applied it to the skin of his wrists. It wasn’t uncomfortable.
“Rub it a little. It’ll be easier to absorb.” He talked to himself in a very soft voice, as if he was afraid of being disturbed. She held his wrist with both hands and gently pushed the place where he sprained his wrist. She gently squeezed from his wrist to his palm.
Writing should be very tiring, Le Zhishi thought. He thought that Song Yu had given him a very unskilled hand massage.
Song Yu could almost imagine Le Zhishi’s expression. He must be very careful now, but he was also a little proud. He felt like he was an adult who could take care of people.
This made him want to tease him.
Le Zhishi was massaging when he felt Song Yu’s hand shrink. He immediately panicked. “Does it hurt? Did I use too much force? “He immediately apologized. However, Song Yu said,” Are you sure there’s no problem with this medicine? ”
Hearing Song Yu’s words, Le Zhishi was so scared that he took out the instructions again. “It can’t be. Allergic …” He nervously checked Song Yu’s wrist. “Where do you feel uncomfortable? Is it itchy? ”
How interesting. The scene seemed to be reversed. The guy who had been sick since he was young was now the one taking care of people.
“Are there any precautions?” Song Yu asked unhurriedly.
“Precautions? It’s written. ” Le Zhishi held the long piece of paper and read it carefully. “It’s forbidden for people who are allergic to this medicine. Use with caution for people who are allergic. Please keep this medicine in a place where children can’t touch it. Children must use it under adult supervision … ”
As he was reading, he suddenly heard a chuckle.
Le Zhishi looked up in confusion. “What are you laughing at?”
Even though Song Yu was wearing an eye mask, the smile on his face was a little obvious. He didn’t know if it was because of the eye mask, but at this moment, his brother seemed to be different from usual.
“So it’s not written that adults must use it under child supervision.” Song Yu’s tone was faint with a hint of subtle ridicule.
Le Zhishi reacted for a while and realized that he was being ridiculed. He decisively denied it. “I’m not a child … right?” He ended rather indecisively.
He even wanted to search online for the legal definition of a child.
Song Yu used his other hand to push up the eye mask, revealing his eyes. “I’m just teasing you.”
Le Zhishi was stunned. He forgot about the words that he had thought of to blame him for mocking others.
Since he was teasing him, then Song Yu’s brother wasn’t really uncomfortable. This was very important to him.
“My hand is much better. Let’s go back to sleep.” Song Yu turned off the bedside lamp and turned over. “Help me turn off the light.”
Le Zhishi put all the medicine boxes on the floor back into his bag and stood up. As he took his homework, he placed the pillow that his brother gave him on the chair and quietly left. He stood at the door and turned off the light. Just as he was about to close the door, he suddenly saw Cotton Candy looking at him and wagging her tail. He ran over and scooped him up.
He suddenly heard Song Yu, who had his back to him, say this sentence.
Le Zhishi was stunned for a moment. He stood there with the dog in his arms for two seconds, as if he was a small and deflated balloon that was suddenly filled with air.
Just from the sound of his voice, he knew that Le Zhishi was laughing very happily.
The light from outside the room projected the shape of the door on the wall. As he tiptoed away, the light continued to shrink and finally became a dazzling narrow gap.
“Brother, goodnight.” He heard Le Zhishi say.
The door closed completely, and Le Zhishi left with the last trace of light.
“Goodnight,” Song Yu whispered back.
