Chapter 787: It Must Be Very Difficult
He had not heard her voice for three days; he missed her very much. Even if he knew that she should be asleep at that time, he wanted to listen to her voice, even if she were to yell at him.
On the other end of the phone, Jiang Yao was woken up by her phone’s ringtone. She was a little confused, but she took her phone and looked at the incoming call. After she confirmed the caller’s name, she picked it up. Fortunately, the ladies in the dormitory slept very well, so they were not woken up.
“Hello, Xingzhi?” Jiang Yao was wrapped in her blanket. She was unsure if the call was from Lu Xingzhi because he had never called her in the middle of the night.
It was not until Lu Xingzhi answered her and called her his wife that Jiang Yao confirmed it.
“The assessment has ended?” Jiang Yao asked. He had called her in the middle of the night. Had he been eliminated and needed her comfort because he was in a bad mood?
Jiang Yao did not know if she should ask about the results. If he had been eliminated, would her questions not like salt to his wound? However, if she did not ask the question, then her heart would worry. She did not know if something was wrong with him.
After about two seconds of hesitation, Jiang Yan decided to ask in another way. “The assessment must be tough, right? There are so many people staring at the three of you. In fact, this assessment is quite unfair to all three of you.”
“It’s not unfair. We had one round less than the rest, and we had three additional rest days too.” Lu Xingzhi did not feel that it was unfair; he laughed in his heart. His little wife had underestimated him; she must have thought that he had been eliminated, so she asked about the situation in a roundabout way. She must have been worried that he was upset.
“If you participated in the second round, you would definitely pass it. Did you really want to have a few more days of rest?” Jiang Yao snorted. Only then did she start to care about his health. “Are you hurt?”
Lu Xingzhi had wanted to hide his injury from her, but when he heard her snort over the phone, he decided to tease her again. “Do you want to hear the truth or not?”
“The truth. If you dare to lie to me, don’t come to Nanjiang City!” Jiang Yao was furious.
“I’m injured, and it hurts a lot.” Lu Xingzhi sighed. “I’m bleeding, but I’m much better after using the medicine that you gave me. I’m in the dormitory now. After I’m done here tomorrow, I’ll go to Nanjiang City to look for you.”
“Is your injury serious? How is it now? Have you seen a doctor? If it’s serious, you do know that you need to go to the hospital, right? You can’t ignore it just because you think that it is nothing serious. If it gets worse, the doctor might not be able to treat it.” Jiang Yao’s tone changed when she learned about Lu Xingzhi’s injury.
Lu Xingzhi had only wanted to tease her, so he deliberately did not say that he was scratched by a tree branch. However, he regretted that when he heard her tone.
It seemed like he had shot himself in the foot.
He wanted to hear that Jiang Yao was distraught about him, but he could not bear to let her worry about him because of his anxiousness.
Jiang Yao still urged him to go to the hospital over the phone. Lu Xingzhi said helplessly, “It’s really nothing; a tree branch just scratched me. It’s just a minor injury. There’s a doctor on standby at the Command Center.”
After Jiang Yao heard that, she still did not quite believe it. She knew Lu Xingzhi’s character; if it were a minor injury, he probably would not even mention it. It was perhaps a little more severe than that. That was why he had told her in advance; it was so that she could be mentally prepared for the information.
