When Xu Youyou unlatched and opened the door, she saw Teacher Kang standing at the door with a bowl in one hand and a red hot water bottle in the other hand.
Teacher Kang said, “I heard that you returned so I got you a bowl of noodles and hot water.”
Xu Youyou quickly took the food and water from Teacher Kang as she said, “Thank you, Teacher Kang.”
‘Youre welcome,” Teacher Kang smiled and said gently, “Youre my student.
Since I brought you out, I naturally have to take care of you.”
Xu Youyou smiled.
She did not know what to say.
“Alright, I wont keep you from eating.
After youre done, remember to rest early,” Teacher Kang said before he left.
Xu Youyou sat at the table and ate the noodles.
Although they did not taste as good as the ones she made, she knew it was necessary to fillher stomach.
After the meal, she showered, changed her clothes, and got into her sleeping bag.
She felt dizzy, and she soon fell asleep.
She did not even hear the notifications from her phone.
The next day, Xu Youyou woke up feeling dizzy.
Her throat was dry and burning, and there was a taste of rust.
After sitting up, she quickly put on her coat before she checked her phone.
It was already 8 in the morning.
She did not have time to check her messages, and she hurriedly got out of bed and washed up.
She was so anxious that she knocked her knee on the table, causing tears to well up in her eyes.
When she arrived at the lobby, she discovered the others were just about to leave.
The male student, who was talking about Xu Youyou the day before, saw her and could not help but mock her tardiness.
However, Teacher Kang could see that Xu Youyous expression was not right so he did not blame Xu Youyou for being late.
Instead, he asked worriedly, “You dont look well.
Are you sick”
Xu Youyous throat hurt so she did not want to speak.
She shook her head in response and did not explain herself.
If theres nothing else, lets go,” Teacher Kang said as he handed the breakfast in his hand over to Xu Youyou, “Take this and eat it.”

Xu Youyou hesitated for a moment before accepting it.
She said in a hoarse voice, “Thank you, Teacher Kang.”
At this moment, the male student said, “Teacher Kang, youre really biased.
We were scolded for being late, but not only did you not scold her, but you even got her breakfast.”
The female student, who argued with the male student the day before, retorted, “Youyous paintings are so good, which teacher would dislike her Whod like a bad student”
While the two argued as they walked, Xu Youyou silently followed behind them.
Teacher Kang turned around to look at Xu Youyou a few times as though he wanted to say something but was hesitating.
Xu Youyous state of mind was not very good the entire day.
She had a headache and a sore throat.
Her body felt weak and sore.
However, she managed to hold on until evening.
Teacher Kang walked over and said, “Stop painting if youre not feeling well.
Your health should be your priority.”
Xu Youyou covered her mouth as she coughed a few times.
Then, she shook her head and said, “Im fine.”
This time, Teacher Kang directly removed the paintbrush from Xu Youyous hand and said, “Your complexion is very bad.
Are you sick”
Xu Youyou did not say anything, but her abnormally flushed face had already given her away.
“I think you have a fever.
Ill accompany you to the clinic in town,” Teacher Kang said as he helped Xu Youyou pack her things.
Xu Youyou tried to negotiate upon hearing these words.
She did not want to go to the clinic because she was afraid she would need an injection for the infusion.
She said, “Just help me buy some medicine.
After taking the medicine and resting for the night, Ill be fine.”
“Alright,” Teacher Kang said.
Then, he notified her students before he left with Xu Youyou.
After sending Xu Youyou back to her room, Teacher Kang went to the pharmacy to buy medication for Xu Youyous fever.
When he returned, he asked for a thermometer before returning to Xu Youyous room.
After taking the medicine, Xu Youyous head was still pounding so she said, “Teacher Kang, I want to rest.
You can go back now.”
It was indeed inappropriate for a teacher and a student of different genders to be alone in the room for too long.
Hence, Teacher Kang rose to his feet and said, “Alright, rest well.
You can call me if you need anything.”
Xu Youyou nodded.
Teacher Kang walked to the door.
When his hand twisted the doorknob, a slight frown appeared on his face immediately.
