Fu Zhi was there to check on her nephew’s condition, yet he was being difficult.
She was talking to him nicely, yet he was messing with her.
Even Fu Zhi, who was a calm and cool-headed person, had started getting a little angry.
On the upside, Old Master Li had paid the consultation charges. Since she had already done her part, Fu Zhi figured that she should leave now. She patted her bunny bag and said, “Well, I guess it’s time for me to go.”
As she turned around and attempted to leave, a gentle, clear voice wafted into her ears.
As he was talking, Li Nanli covered his lips with his hand. The veins on his forehead were bulging, and he looked as if he was trying his very best to suppress the urge to cough.
He stared straight at Fu Zhi.
He had been born with a pair of beautiful eyes, not to mention that his eyelashes were really long. He immediately lifted one of his eyebrows and said slowly, “My chest hurts.”
If it had been anybody else, Fu Zhi might have already walked away. However, Li Nanli was a different case.
He had “dated” her online and given her a lot of money.
Fu Zhi had read in the news that plenty of youngsters had committed suicide after getting scammed out of their money by girls they had met on the internet.
She had no idea if Li Nanli would follow in their footsteps or not. In any case, she would not return the money to him.
After some contemplation, Fu Zhi walked back to Li Nanli and put her phone on the desk. She pulled a handkerchief out of her bag, spread it open, and covered Li Nanli’s wrist with it. Then, she said, “Let me check your pulse.”
Her fingers were fair and slender, and her nails were pinkish in color. Li Nanli could not help himself and stared at Fu Zhi. He regretted what he had said a second earlier and, as if he was being controlled by a mysterious force, he said, “But it’s my chest that hurts. Don’t you think you should feel my chest instead?”
He licked his lower lip, and his Adam’s apple bobbed in his throat. He leaned closer to her and murmured, “It’s really painful. It feels like there’s something wrong with my heart. Can you help me take a look at it? I’m feeling really terrible right now.”
Truth be told, the medicine he took did not have this kind of side effect, but his heartbeat was abnormal.
Fu Zhi’s eyelashes fluttered, and she nodded.
Li Nanli felt as if there was a bolt of fire burning inside of him. His throat was dry and scratchy, and his breathing had become more labored than it had been ever before. He raised his hand and undid the button on his collar, revealing his collarbone.
His eyes were red around the rims, and the shape of his Adam’s apple was irresistible.
Fu Zhi noticed that his ears had turned red. She thought for a moment and placed her hand on Li Nanli’s chest.
“Ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum—”
His heartbeat was exceedingly fast.
Fu Zhi said, “Your heart is working fine.”
“But why would it hurt?” Li Nanli asked as he stared at her. “Aren’t there four methods of diagnosis according to traditional Chinese medicine?”
“Lean over and listen.”
Fu Zhi nodded and leaned forward.
A faint lactonic scent mixed with peppermint shot up into Li Nanli’s nostrils, causing his heart to skip a beat and his hand on the blanket to suddenly tighten.
Fu Zhi was leaning against his chest, and he could see her swan-like neck from his point of view. He had no idea why, but her neck reminded him of a rose in a vase. It was fragile and easy to break.
He moved his eyes away from her neck and looked at her flawless face. His gaze was intense, but his voice was calm. “Zhizhi.”
Without waiting for her to reply, he placed his hand on her waist and tightened it slightly, drawing her even closer to him.
Fu Zhi was addressing him, but he did not reply.
She said, “Can you move your hand away? Please show some respect to your elder.”
‘Or else, I won’t give you a red envelope during the Lunar New Year!’
Li Nanli noticed the embarrassment that flitted across her face, and a smile formed at the tips of his lips. Then, he pitched his voice low and said, “You have to lean closer. Only then will you hear it clearly.”
