Huo Yao left the hospital room and walked towards the lift. But then, she turned to head back to the nurses’ station and asked them to take care of the old man before she finally left.
By the time she got back to class, it was already time for the third period.
Huo Yao gave Meng Ying the autographed picture which Tong Yu had given her earlier. Then she settled down in front of her desk with a sigh.
Meng Ying did not look at the autograph right away. Instead, she asked Huo Yao quizzically. “How did you end up hurting an old man?”
The news that a No.1 Middle School student hurt an elderly man, which led to an ambulance arriving on the scene, had already spread through the school like wildfire.
However, Meng Ying did not expect the culprit to be her desk buddy.
Huo Yao turned her head sideways, expressionlessly. “I wonder how an old man like him ended up in school as well!”
It seemed as if he had been deliberately waiting to blackmail her.
Meng Ying touched her nose. “Maybe he is someone’s guardian? Is he okay?”
Huo Yao glanced at Meng Ying and said angrily, “Shouldn’t you be asking me if I am okay?”
She was the one who inexplicably became the target of blackmail. Wasn’t she the true victim here?
Meng Ying coughed awkwardly. Huo Yao’s aura felt murderous.
She muttered softly. “But everyone is saying that you walked into him.”
Huo Yao’s expression sank. Sure enough, old geezers were nothing but trouble.
“If it’s just a misunderstanding, you should get the school to check the CCTV footage. Since it’s a serious matter, you might end up on the wrong side of public opinion,” added Meng Ying.
Huo Yao went quiet for a few seconds before she stood up and headed out of the classroom.
Meng Ying said to her anxiously, “Where are you going?”
Huo Yao waved her hand and replied without turning back. “To check the CCTV footage.”
A few minutes later, inside the CCTV control room.
“There isn’t any camera in that part of the school,” said the security guard sadly.
All of them knew about a student hurting an old man. When the ambulance arrived, the school had already checked the CCTV footage.
Huo Yao looked at all the screens. Sure enough, no cameras were installed in that part of the school.
She certainly did not get blackmailed out of the blue.
Chen Yu looked worried as she asked. “Huo Yao, did the hospital clear him after the examination?”
It was not that she did not trust Huo Yao. The problem was that they were dealing with an old man. Also, there was no CCTV footage for the incident. Hence, if the old man wanted to insist that Huo Yao was at fault, it would be impossible to clear her name.
“He’s perfectly fine,” replied Huo Yao as she pursed her lips.
Since she was medically trained, she was well aware that the old man was not sick.
Moreover, she had only extended her support to him, which created no impact on the man’s condition.
Chen Yu heaved a sigh of relief. “Great. Don’t worry. Tell me if the old man approaches you again. Since this happened in school, the school won’t sit by and let him blackmail you.”
Huo Yao looked at Chen Yu and nodded before she acknowledged softly. “Thanks, Miss Chen.”
Chen Yu smiled. “You’re welcome. It’s my job to protect you. Sadly, the Principal stepped out in the afternoon. Otherwise, I would have told him about it.”
Chen Yu knew how highly the principal thought of Huo Yao.
“It’s fine. We don’t have to trouble him for this.” Huo Yao smiled.
Huo Yao went home and tossed the old man, who tried to con her, to the back of her mind.
Min Yu was due for acupuncture, so Huo Yao made an excuse and left home right after dinner.
In the bedroom, in the villa next door.
“You look upset today. What happened?” asked Min Yu as he leaned against the bed while he watched Huo Yao disinfect the needles.
Could she tell him about getting blackmailed?
Huo Yao pursed her lips and said nothing.
Her expression was cold, and she looked like she did not want to be provoked. The needle in her hand flickered menacingly, just like her face.
Min Yu’s temples throbbed as he looked at the needle in her hand. He suggested in a soft voice. “Why don’t we do this tomorrow?”
Huo Yao looked sideways at Min Yu without giving him any room for negotiation. “Lie down.”
Min Yu went quiet.
She looked awfully intimidating.
Huo Yao wanted to fix Min Yu’s longtime illness. Although she did not care about the man’s background, he must have an unusual one judging from his old ailment.
Moreover, Yang Yi treated him with so much respect.
Just like before, she applied the needles and probed the acupuncture points. The entire process took approximately two hours.
Huo Yao’s face was visibly pale after she pushed in the final needle, with sweat gathering on her forehead.
After taking a short rest, she told Zhuo Yun to pour the Chinese medicine he prepared into the wooden tub.
The last step was for him to soak in the medicinal bath and apply acupuncture again.
It was just them in the bathroom since she did not want to be disturbed in the process.
