Xia Micheng pondered for a while and said, “I don’t know what sort of books I’m looking for, or what medicine to use; I’m still thinking about it. Shuang Shuang, you don’t have to help me now; I will think about it over the next few days. Should I need your help, I will not hesitate to ask you. Go and look after your flowers now.”
Shuang Shuang thought that Xia Micheng was being mysterious. After all, she was a straight-A student, so her mindset must be different from other people. The library of the Privy Research Center was as large as the palace hall; she felt sleepy whenever she walked into it.
Just then, she caught sight of Xia Micheng’s neck and pointed at it, saying, “Micheng, what are those marks on your neck? Who bit you so fiercely?”
To cover the wounds on her body, Xia Micheng wore a turtleneck and covered herself fully. Unfortunately, they were still caught by Shuang Shuang’s sharp eyes.
Xia Micheng swiftly covered her collar with one hand and denied, “Shuang Shuang, stop talking nonsense; I was just b-bitten by a mosquito last night!”
Shuang Shuang pulled Xia Micheng to a corner and whispered, “Micheng, I heard that you are married to the ghost husband from Orchid Garden. Tell me the truth; is he a psychopath or what? Your wounds were obviously caused by a human. I can tell that his teeth sank into your flesh; he’s sucking your blood!”
