over up his embarrassing mistake.
“Hold on a second.
I’ll have the doctor right up a new one.”

Shen Xi quirked an eyebrow but nodded.
She could barely restrain herself long enough for Guan Lei to make a beeline for the doctor’s office before she burst into laughter.

Still, she had to give it to him.
Guan Lei was very capable.
Getting the school doctor to sign off on a memo so easily meant he was not as simple as he tried to appear.

A mysterious smile drew an arc across her lips as she left, heading back to her dormitory.

When she received the new memo, it read that she was experiencing an irregular heartbeat; hence, she was asked to remain for observation.
It certainly sounded better than having her piles removed.

Staying in the school’s observation rooms was a matter of public record; anyone could find out that Shen Xi and Guan Lei were staying in the same room because they had their piles removed.
If word got around, they would become a laughing stock!

Shen Xi did not move her things into the observation room they were supposed to share.
Instead, she decided she would only make her way there after washing up every night.
She would then wake up a little earlier the next morning, returning to her dormitory to prepare for the new day.

Although it was a little troublesome, she felt more comfortable adapting to this practice.

Shen Xi followed Guan Lei to the observation room they were supposed to share.
As soon as she entered, she was stunned by the décor.

What should have been a plain hospital bed had been changed into two large Simmons beds, the bedding neatly folded and put to one side.
Next to each of their beds was a dressing table.
In a corner, an incense burner chuffed out plumes of white smoke, filling the air with the scent of lavender.
There was no hint of the smell of disinfectant one would normally smell in an infirmary or a hospital.

A fluffy pink carpet covered the floor from end to end.
A small tea table and futon framed by an elegant set of translucent curtains were by the window.
The whole setup made one feel warm and fuzzy yet refreshed.

Meanwhile, facing the two beds was a matching sofa spread.

“I was in a hurry, so I couldn’t tidy up as much as I would have liked.
You don’t mind, do you?” Guan Lei asked.

It was Guan Lei’s first time staying in the same room with a girl.
He had sought Xue Li’s advice, and she had said that girls usually preferred clean and homely environments.
Shen Xi probably fell into that category.

Shen Xi offered Guan Lei a faint smile.
“Didn’t you say that your family is very poor? I also recall you mentioning the summer job you took at the Auspicious Dragon Hall to earn some money to pay for your school fees.
The room’s décor would suggest otherwise.
It doesn’t look like a room someone poor could afford to tidy up.”
