Chapter 740 Saving the Old Man
Wei Zimu instantly gripped his phone tightly. A hint of disgust flashed across the depths of his gentle eyes. When he looked up, he had already returned to his original state. “Sister Wanyuan, I have something on and have to leave first. All the best.”
“Okay.” Xia Wanyuan nodded, and Wei Zimu turned to leave.
Xia Wanyuan looked at Wei Zimu’s back. For some reason, she suddenly had a bad feeling. “Wei Zimu.”
“What’s wrong?” Wei Zimu turned around with a surprised smile in his eyes. It had been so long, but this was the first time he had heard Xia Wanyuan call his name.
Although he wanted to hear Xia Wanyuan call him ‘Brother’, this was not bad.
“I’m not familiar with this place. Can you stay and introduce it to me?”
Wei Zimu hesitated for a moment but rejected in the end. “I’m sorry, I have something on. When I’m done, I’ll definitely come back to look for you, okay?”
Xia Wanyuan could not say anything else and could only nod.
Wei Zimu smiled at Xia Wanyuan and gradually disappeared from her sight.
Xia Wanyuan’s thoughts were inexplicably chaotic as she slowly walked around the art hall.
After walking around, Xia Wanyuan was about to return to the castle when she was suddenly stopped. “Girl.”
Xia Wanyuan looked towards the source of the voice. An old man, who was dressed very simply but could be seen to be extremely clean, was sitting on the ground, holding his ankle with a painful expression.
“Girl, can you call someone for me? I don’t know how to use a phone. I sprained my ankle just now.”
Xia Wanyuan did not know how to call the ambulance here. She walked over and looked at the old man’s condition, signaling him to remove his hand.
The old man looked at Xia Wanyuan in confusion, but under her gaze, he actually sensed the dignity and subconsciously moved away.
“Don’t move.” Xia Wanyuan pinched the place where he had sprained his ankle. Her grip tightened instantly, and the old man felt a heart-wrenching pain on his ankle. Just as he was about to ask Xia Wanyuan what she had done to him, Xia Wanyuan had already let go.
“You can walk by yourself. There shouldn’t be any problem, but I still suggest you go to the hospital for a checkup.” The old man had only sprained his ankle. Xia Wanyuan often saw military doctors treat such small injuries for the soldiers. After seeing more, she learned a little.
The old man stretched his limbs and looked at Xia Wanyuan in surprise. “Young lady, you’re a doctor?”
“No, it’s a coincidence. If there’s nothing else, I’ll leave first.” Xia Wanyuan glanced at the time and wanted to go back for dinner.
“Thank you.” The old man smiled and nodded at Xia Wanyuan. Only then did she leave.
Not long after she left, the curator and in-charge of the art museum ran over.
“Mr. Lison, I really didn’t expect you to come. It’s our honor to have you here. Please come this way.” The curator looked at the plainly dressed old man in admiration.
“No need. I was just passing by to take a look. The venue is not bad.” The old man was not as amiable as when he faced Xia Wanyuan. There was a dignified aura in his eyes.
“Thank you for the praise. Your affirmation is our utmost honor.” After receiving the old man’s affirmation, the curator was extremely happy. “Where are you going? I’ll send you.”
“Then help me send a car.” The old man did not decline.
“Okay, right away!!” The curator accompanied the old man with a smile and arranged for his subordinates to send a car.
Xia Wanyuan returned to the castle. Jun Shiling was not back yet, and Xia Yu was not around either. Hence, she lay on the sofa and read for a while.
The weather was cool in early autumn. Xia Wanyuan watched for a while and fell asleep unknowingly. Only when she smelled Jun Shiling’s scent in her sleep did Xia Wanyuan slowly open her eyes.
“You’re awake?” Jun Shiling had carried Xia Wanyuan to the bed at some point in time. Jun Shiling was sitting by the bed looking at her.
“You’ve been sitting here?” Xia Wanyuan yawned. She often woke up after sleeping and found Jun Shiling watching her.
“Mm.” As if knowing what Xia Wanyuan was going to ask, Jun Shiling smiled. “I like to see you. You look good.”
Xia Wanyuan gently kicked Jun Shiling. “I’m hungry. I want to eat.”
“Let’s go somewhere today.”
