When Mo Shenbai regained his senses, he frowned slightly and said disapprovingly, “The weather is so cold, but youre wearing so little.”
“I…” Xu Youyou wanted to refute his words, but before she could do so, she felt her entire body suffused with warmth.
The familiar woodsy scent wafted into her nose after that.
Mo Shenbai had taken off his coat and put it on her.
He even adjusted it for her, tightening the collar.
“Im not cold.
Moreover, Im home now,” Xu Youyou said, attempting to return the coat to him.
However, Mo Shenbai pressed her hand down and said in a deep voice, “You should be obedient if youre sick.”
Xu Youyou was slightly surprisedthat he knew she was sick.
She wondered if the butler told him about it.
She was still in a daze when Mo Shenbai put his arm around her shoulders and led her into the house.
Mo Shenbai asked, “Do you have a fever”
“I dont think so…”
Before she could say anything else, Xu Youyou felt a warm hand on her forehead.
Her breathing hitched slightly.
It was as though all the warmth had gathered at the place he touched her.
It was hot and itchy.
After Mo Shenbai felt her forehead, he pressed his hand against his own forehead.
He said with a frown, “Youre a little warm.” Then, he said to the housekeeper, “Bring the thermometer over.”
Mo Shenbai brought Xu Youyou, who had her head lowered, to the living room so she could sit down.
When he saw her flushed cheeks, he grew even more worried.
The housekeeper returned with a medicine box and handed a thermometer to Mo Shenbai.
Mo Shenbai shook the thermometer twice.
Then, he looked at her and hesitated for a few seconds before he said, “Put it under your arm.”
Xu Youyou lowered her gaze and took the thermometer.
Today, she was wearing a lemon yellow hoodie.
The collar was rather small so her hand could not reach in.
She could only reach up from under the hem.
When the hem rose, it revealed a patch of Xu Youyous fair and tender skin.
Upon seeing this, Mo Shenbai quickly averted his gaze.
After a moment, he said to the butler, “Tell the kitchen to prepare dinner.”
You are reading on MYBO XN 0 V E L.
The butler nodded and bowed before he made his way to the kitchen.
With this, only the duo was left in the living room.
It was so quiet that one could hear a pin drop.
It was getting darker outside, and the light in the living room made Xu Youyou look even paler.
Mo Shenbai kept staring at her.
No matter from which angle he looked at her, he felt that she had lost weight.
Xu Youyous head was lowered, but she could feel his gaze on her.
She felt very uncomfortable and wanted to return to her room as soon as possible after she took her temperature.
However, time seemed to pass very slowly; seconds and minutes felt like years to her.
It was really not easy for her to endure ten minutes.
Xu Youyou could not wait to remove the thermometer.
She was so anxious that the thermometer slipped down.
“Eh Where is it” Xu Youyou patted herself, searching for the thermometer for a long time.
“Let me find it,” Mo Shenbai said.
Then, he reached out and gently patted the area around her waist through her clothes.
Xu Youyous body stiffened.
She wanted to refuse him, but when his hand touched her, she could not help but tremble as goosebumps erupted on her skin.
Finally, Mo Shenbai patted her lower back a few times before he reached up from under her hem and fished the thermometer out.
Naturally, his hand grazed her bare skin.
Although it was just a brief contact, he felt her trembling.
His eyes were dark as he asked, “Are you nervous”
“No, no, no.
I just feel a little cold so I shivered,” Xu Youyou hurriedly denied.
‘It definitely not because you touched me.
Mo Shenbai only raised an eyebrow and did not dwell on the topic.
Instead, he looked at the thermometer and said, “You have a low fever.
You should take antipyretic pills.
If you have a sore throat as well, you should take lozenges to ease the pain.”
“Oh,” Xu Youyou said in a muffled voice.
As Mo Shenbai put the thermometer away, he looked for the medicine and asked, “Are you afraid of taking medicine”
If she was afraid, he could ask the doctor to give her an injection or infusion.
“Im not afraid.
In the past, Ive swallowed more than a dozen pills without blinking!” Xu Youyou replied.
