Because of his injury, Huo Yunshen had been specially exempted from doing anything. He and Cherry just had to wait for the ready-made food.
After dinner, Xu Xiyan prepared to treat Huo Yunshen with acupuncture. Huo Yunshen said, “Forget it, you are tired from the day. You should rest early.”
“It’s all right, I’m not tired. Just lie down.”
His health naturally took top priority. Xu Xiyan didn’t care whether she was tired.
Under her insistence, Huo Yunshen obeyed and lay on the bed.
When Xu Xiyan opened his bathrobe, she was so shocked at what she saw that she sucked in a breath of cold air. “How come your back is injured too? Why didn’t you tell me?”
His back was bruised and swollen in many places. Xu Xiyan’s heart ached badly for him, and she felt like breaking into tears.
Other than being distressed for him, she was angry, too. She was angry at Huo Yunshen for not saying anything about it and keeping it to himself.
Looking at the bruised and swollen spots, Xu Xiyan could imagine how hard he had been hit by the sign. She thought that he had only hurt his forehead. Who knew that his back was injured too?
“It’s really nothing. It will heal in a few days.”

Huo Yunshen felt nice and warm in his heart as he listened to her nagging. Her delicate hand caressed his back as she applied the ointment. It was a different kind of bliss that he simply couldn’t describe.
Her touch may have reduced the swelling on his back, but something somewhere ‘down there’ had become swollen.
After applying the ointment, Xu Xiyan said, “All right, I’m not going to put needles in your back tonight. I’m going to apply them to the front.”
She helped Huo Yunshen turn onto his back, but Huo Yunshen suddenly grabbed her hand—not certain whether it was intentional—and with a little pull, Xu Xiyan fell and her body was planted onto his.
Her lower abdomen was pressed against a place where it should not have been pressed. Through the thinness of his clothes, she could clearly feel the dangerous heat and tightness of the man. It felt hot against her skin.
Almost in an instant, she felt a strong rushing current tingling and flowing through her limbs and into her bones, and couldn’t he
