Chapter 116: Let Me Straighten Your Bone
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The mans warm and dry palm gently touched her ankle.
A layer of redness covered Qiao Xis face.
She subconsciously wanted to retract her foot but was firmly grabbed by the man and could not move.
Qiao Xi: “…”
This was the first time she felt the difference in strength between a man and a woman.
Qiao Xi wanted to say something but just as she opened her mouth, she heard a cracking sound.
Her brows were instantly furrowed as she stared at Gu Zheng with resentment.
The latter released his hand as if nothing had happened.
“Didnt I say that you twisted your ankle I straightened your bones.”
Qiao Xi: “…”
‘Why didnt you say anything before you straightened my bones! Are you mute! It hurt when you suddenly did that!
“Can you walk I dont think you can.
Then I have no choice but to carry you.” Gu Zheng answered himself and bent down to carry Qiao Xi before she could react.
After settling Qiao Xi down, Gu Zheng called the family doctor to ask about where the ointment was.
Later when Qiao Xi saw the ointment in Gu Zhengs hand, she did not wait for Gu Zheng to speak and directly stretched out her hand.
“I can do it myself.”
Her ankle seemed to still have the warmth of Gu Zhengs palm.
At this moment, she would not let him touch her even if she had to die.
Fortunately, Gu Zheng did not fight with her over this.
After putting the ointment in her hand, he sat at the side and watched silently.
Qiao Xi: “…”
It was very stressful.
She poured the oil into her palms, rubbed them together, and heated it up before applying it to her ankle.
After she was done, the clock on the wall showed that it was already 11 oclock.
Qiao Xi looked upstairs, then at Gu Zheng.
She thought that it would be a little embarrassing if she jumped up to the third floor on one leg in front of Gu Zheng, so she kept sitting on the sofa and waited for Gu Zheng to return to his room before returning.
Unexpectedly, Gu Zheng, that scumbag, was just sitting there.
He had no intention of moving at all! He endured until Qiao Xi finally could not take it anymore.
Her body that was leaning against the sofa was continually leaning to the side.
In the end, she simply collapsed on the sofa and slept.
Gu Zheng, who was looking at his phone and handling some documents, heard the sound of steady breathing beside him.
He raised his head and saw Qiao Xi sleeping.
His thin lips curled slightly.
As he observed Qiao Xis sleeping face, he wondered if she had discovered his secret today.
Apart from Song Shiyu and some close friends, no one else knew about his problem of not being able to see at night.
It was only because what had happened today was a coincidence, which was how Qiao Xi found out.
It was fine if she did not discover the truth behind it, but if she did… it would really be quite troublesome.
The next day, Qiao Xi woke up in the bedroom on the third floor.
She widened her eyes and looked at the ceiling of the bedroom in a daze.
She remembered that she had fallen asleep on the sofa yesterday.
Was it Gu Zheng who carried her back to the master bedroom
A trace of redness involuntarily crept onto her face, but she quickly calmed down.
She remembered that today was the day Qiao Rou and Gu Moling would come to Longwan Residential.
After thinking for a while, she struggled to get up, found a dress from the wardrobe, and put it on.
This style was vastly different from her usual attire.
She then put on exquisite makeup, sunglasses, and went downstairs gracefully.
She moved her ankle.
Perhaps because she was promptly treated yesterday, so the pain in her ankle was less intense.
She could walk normally.
Song Shiyu was in the living room reporting todays work to Gu Zheng.
When he heard the noise upstairs, he looked up.
“Huh! President Gu, theres another woman in your villa! Damn, wheres Madam Shell divorce you if she finds out!”
Gu Zhengs fingers froze as he raised his head to look at the stairs.
His gaze landed on Qiao Xi as he scoffed.
“Your ankle has recovered”
Song Shiyu: “…” He looked at Gu Zheng with an accusing glare.
It was bad enough that President Gu had brought another woman back behind Madams back, but he was also so concerned about this woman.
Was he not afraid that Madam would be angry Had President Gu decided not to like Madam and wanted to change his taste
What should he do He liked Madams character very much.
If it were someone else who was not easy to get along with… He felt that his life would be very difficult in the future.
Qiao Xi touched the curls of her hair and lazily leaned against the stairs.
She curled her finger at Gu Zheng, beckoning him.
Gu Zheng chuckled.
“Song Shiyu, stay outside for a while.”
Song Shiyu: “…”
‘Dont you think youre going a little too far Arent you afraid that Ill call Madam and complain if you flirt with another woman in front of me
Qiao Xi was wearing a black dress that emphasized her curves.
It perfectly displayed her voluptuous figure.
Before she left, she had looked in the mirror..
Her appearance could be said to be that of a seductive demoness.
