Hurricane City – Chapter 70 (Leaving The Hospital)
Taking the money from Xin Yu, I stood at the bus stop. My heart somehow felt funny. Today must be a destined day. Ever since Murong Shan Shan called me in the morning, until now in the middle of the night, I had been looking for her three times already. Perhaps I had owed her something in my previous life…
Twenty minutes later, I finally called a taxi. XX Hospital wasn’t very far, but I was afraid if I walked there, in the end, I would lay together with Murong Shan Shan in the hospital. I didn’t wear too many clothes, so it would be odd if I didn’t get ill like Murong Shan Shan from the freezing.
The on-duty nurse at the front desk was exquisite. Seeing me coming in from the snow outside, she smiled and asked, “Sir, how may I help you?”
I patted the snow off my shoulder, smiled and stated, “I’m looking for Murong Shan Shan. She should be on the third floor in this hospital, but I don’t know which room.”
The nurse checked a while and then nodded and said, “Yes, she is on the third floor in room 302.”
I went straight to the third floor. Even with the hospital having central air-conditioning, but it was warmer already. Since it was now past eleven, the lights on the stairwell were so dark. Fortunately, I just needed to go to the third floor, so I rushed as fast as I could. The on-duty nurse there had fallen asleep, cupping her cheek at the desk.
When I knocked on the room 302’s door, before long, someone came to open the door. Murong Shan Shan had already fallen asleep in the VIP room. Her snow-white face looked tired, and her long eyelashes slightly moving.
I whispered to Cocoa, “When did she sleep?”
“Just now. You… you come to see her?” Cocoa asked in a low voice as well.
I nodded. Cocoa revealed a delighted smile at once, “That’s wonderful. Then tonight, you stay here with her while I’m going home to sleep!”
Dumbfounded, my eyes were wide open, “That’s really inappropriate. I’ve known Shan Shan for less than a month. Would you trust me to nurse her here by myself?”
Cocoa smiled, pointing at Murong Shan Shan who laid in the bed, she said with a pouting mouth, “I don’t, but she would!”
I was speechless. Cocoa grinned and packed her small bag, then she just waved goodbye at me and walked out the door.
After the door closed, inside this room was only Murong Shan Shan and me left. That was when I thought myself as ridiculous. I went to see a patient with empty hands, not even bringing any flowers.
Since yesterday, I had only slept for 4 hours, and my head was aching like hell. I looked around at the room which was quite simple. Except for the bed, there was just a TV and a few chairs.
Murong Shan Shan was fast asleep. I took a chair next to the bed. It seemed tonight I could only sleep leaning on the bedside. With the cold, I really missed my warm bed…
Apparently, my movement was too loud. Murong Shan Shan frowned and still with her eyes closed, she said, “Cocoa, please get me a glass of water. Thank you~!”
I didn’t answer but just poured water in the glass and put it on the nightstand. Then I sat down and said, “It’s on the nightstand. Can you get it yourself, or should I get it for you?”
When Murong Shan Shan heard my voice, she was slightly shocked and sat up. Her expression was very cute.
“Lin Fan… You… Why are you here?”
I quickly pulled back the quilt that had slipped from her chest and helplessly said, “You should lie down again, don’t catch a cold again. Do you think I want to be here? It’s thanks to your nice sister, Cocoa, who had run home to sleep and put me on this. Last night, I didn’t get enough sleep, and tonight’s sleep is also ruined…”
She shook her head, picked up a jacket next to her to cover herself, and then pulled up the quilt, and leaned on the bed.
“Too bad, today’s whole night leveling time is wasted…” Murong Shan Shan’s voice was a little depressed.
“Too bad my ass! You’re already lying in a hospital bed and still feel a pity?” I said it in a loud voice.
She immediately looked at me with surprise.
I quickly changed my tone and talked with a gentler voice, “You can still catch up with leveling. You should get well first.”
“And here I thought you can’t talk dirty!” Murong Shan Shan smiled with a pursed lips, then she looked at me and said, “So, I couldn’t get online today, did you get something?”
Her question delighted me, and I answered with a smile, “Of course. I beat a BOSS and it dropped a blue sword, Sword of Darkness, with Attack of 170-245!”
“Oh?” Murong Shan Shan called out surprisedly and put down the cup she was holding, “Its Attack is a lot higher than mine. What’s the level of the BOSS? How many people were there?”
“Only me alone. I couldn’t see the BOSS’s level, but it should be above level 35. It also dropped another equipment. Don’t be surprised.”
“What equipment? Could it be a purple one?” Murong Shan Shan blinked her glittering eyes.
I nodded in silence.
“You… You can’t be serious, right?” She even dropped the quilt she was holding.
I quickly helped her put up the quilt again and said, “Of course it’s true. Blue Guardian of the Heart, a level 30 necklace with Stamina +37 and Intelligence +42. It also increased the healing effect by 45%!”
“What? 45%?!” She had covered her mouth with her hands.
Seeing the beauty’s eyes shone in a green light, I quickly said, “This necklace is good, but you shouldn’t give it too much thought. I’ve decided to give it to a colleague.”
Murong Shan Shan squinted at me and asked, “Is it the beautiful girl from the other day?”
“No, it’s another…” I couldn’t explain and then suddenly continued, “No, why do I feel like being asked if I have an affair?”
Murong Shan Shan laughed out loud, and after drinking some water, she said, “Look at you, so scared. Even if you like that colleague of yours, I wouldn’t eat you!”
I whispered bitterly, “If you would, that would be good…”
Murong Shan Shan’s face turned cold, and she asked, “What did you say?”
I was nervous, “Nothing. Hurry up and sleep. If your fever’s down by tomorrow, you can leave the hospital.”
Murong Shan Shan suddenly burst out a laugh and sweetly said, “I’ll allow you to sleep leaning on the bed, but you may not come up here. Okay, that’s it, good night!”
I didn’t see her when she looked at me. I reached out my hand turning off the light and then leaned on the bed to sleep.
Didn’t know how long I slept, just felt the day outside was bright already. I looked up and saw Murong Shan Shan was still asleep. The time was already seven in the morning. Although I didn’t sleep too comfortable, but most of my strength had recovered. The room temperature was warm, so I didn’t sleep in cold.
“Huh? It’s morning already.”
Murong Shan Shan opened her eyes. It appeared that she slept soundly last night.
“Lin Fan, quick go get the nurse to check my temperature so I can go home!”
I nodded and called the nurse in here. Murong Shan Shan’s fitness was quite good. In just one night, her fever was gone. I stretched myself. Damn, I could finally go back to level to 32!
