When the bullock cart reached the fork in the road, Liu Yimian took the initiative to say that he wanted to get off. Aunty Lin lived not far from their house and said she wanted to send them all the way home. But seeing Liu Yimian’s insistence, Ji Wei also got out of the cart, and said that he would come over to thank her in a few days.
After getting out of the cart, Ji Wei was pulled away by Liu Yimian.
It was the opposite direction from home.
“Mianmian, where are we going?”
Liu Yimian clenched Ji Wei’s sleeves and didn’t speak, just looked forward and walked. If Ji Wei could see his expression, he would find that his eyes were reddish and his lips were tightly pursed, looking worried.
It didn’t take long before he came to a shop on South Street.
Changliu Town is not a big town. There is only one medical clinic in the town, called Xinglintang. There is an old doctor in his fifties who runs the clinic. His price is not high, but his medical skills are very high. Any ordinary villagers who have a fever and headache would look for him. It only takes 2 or 3 doses of his medicine and they will be well.
As soon as the two entered the door, they saw the old man dozing off in front of the medicine cabinet.
Liu Yimian let go of his hand, walked in front of the old man, and let out a soft cry.
The old man opened his eyes in confusion, and when he saw Liu Yimian, he couldn’t help muttering: “You come at such a bad time, this old man had just squinted his eyes for a while…” He slowly got up from the chair and saw Ji Wei near the door. The drowsy expression was swept away, and his face was pulled down all of a sudden, and he shouted, “What are you doing here again? Get out! Get out of my place quickly, so as not to dirty my place.”
The original owner often made trouble and fought with people, therefore, he is often injured and can be said to be a frequent visitor to Xinglintang.
In the beginning, the old doctor prescribed several medicines in order to treat the injuries.
But the original owner never pays up, always saying to put it on his tab. He always has the money to drink and womanize, but always no money to pay for the prescription drugs. Over time, as soon as the old doctor saw the original owner, he regarded him as a thorn in his eye, and could not wait to get him out of the house with a broom, how could he still sit down and talk calmly?
“Doctor, please calm down, be careful that you will hurt your body.” Liu Yimian was embarrassed, he didn’t expect such a situation. He hurriedly stretched out his hand to hold the old doctor, for fear that he would be really annoyed and chase them away, “We are just here to see a doctor, we will not cause trouble.”
Old Wu’s chest heaved up and down, blowing his beard and staring: “The old man is afraid that he is here to see a doctor!”
Liu Yimian was confused, “Doctor, you…”
Seeing this, Ji Wei felt very helpless.
The original owner just closed his eyes and left, leaving this mess for him, and he doesn’t know how he can clean it up.
Ji Wei thought for a while, “Mr. Wu, I think it’s better to count the money you owe before, it’s not good to take advantage of you.”
Mr. Wu snorted, “Since you also know that you shouldn’t take advantage of the elderly, why didn’t you pay for medical treatment before?”
“It’s been a long time since you paid for the medicine, and it is estimated that you didn’t record it in the account book. Forget it, I’m too lazy to look it up, just remember to pay up this time, I’ll take a look at you.” After all, Mr. Wu was a doctor whose mission is to heal the world, and he was also soft-hearted.
Yesterday’s incident happened in West Street, though he lives in South street, he too heard about it. Seeing the blue and purple marks on his face, and his embarrassing appearance, after all, he couldn’t bear it.
Liu Yimian was happy when he saw that Mr. Wu had changed his mind. He hurried forward before he sat down, straightened the chair for him, and helped Mr. Wu sit down.
Dr Wu glanced at him and said strangely: “You look familiar.”
“I came here to collect medicine before.”
Dr Wu nodded, “Remember, if you can’t pay, I won’t give it to you. What does it have to do with this man?”
Even though he asked this question, when he saw the mole between Liu Yimian’s eyebrows, he knew roughly in his heart.
Ji Wei sat down in front of Dr Wu, “He’s my little “brother.”
Dr Wu snorted, stopped talking, and stretched out his hand to check on Ji Wei’s injury. Then he walked slowly to the edge of the medicine cabinet and stood on tiptoe to get the medicinal wine in the drawer above the cabinet.
He took out two different bottles, one with a red stopper and one with a white stopper, and put them in front of Ji Wei, “The red one is for the bruises, wash the wound and apply it to the affected area every day, rub it a few times. The white one is to apply to the opening of your neck. Although there is no bleeding, now the weather is hot, it is easy to aggravate, so apply it at night.”
Liu Yimian, who was standing by the side, listened carefully, and when Mr. Wu finished speaking, he reached out and wanted to take the two bottles.
When Dr Wu saw a hand stretched out, he subconsciously slapped it away, making a loud and crisp sound, making the back of Liu Yimian’s white and tender hand flush red.
“Dr Wu, you-“
Ji Wei pulled Liu Yimian to his side, held his hand, and looked at the back of his hand. Seeing that the back of his hand was only slightly red, he felt relieved, and he was a little dissatisfied when he spoke.
Dr Wu’s action was a subconscious action, not intentional. However, when Ji Wei came to ask, he wouldn’t bolder to explain, so he sternly said, “You can only take this medicine after you pay.”
“How much is it?”
“Ten copper for each bottle, the total is twenty copper.”
Ji Wei took out the purse from his belt, and there were still a lot of copper plates that had not been exchanged for broken silver.
Counting it down in the palm of his hand, there are still about forty pieces of copper.
He simply pushed it all in front of Dr Wu, and said to him: “I don’t know how much I owe you previously. I will make up for the extra, and ask Wu Lao to accept it.”
This time, it was Mr. Wu’s turn to be flattered, and he couldn’t help but keep looking at Ji Wei, as if he had seen some monster in disbelief.
But in the end, he did not refuse and accepted the money.
South Street is not too far from West Lane, and it takes only a quarter of an hour to walk there.
Liu Yimian didn’t dare to delay, he walked all the way home, dragged Ji Wei into the room, let him sit on the bed, and ran to the yard to draw a pot of well water, saying that he wanted to apply medicine for him.
When he walked out of the house holding the basin, his footsteps slowed down.
Ji Wei listened to his footsteps wandering outside the house. But he did not come in. So he raised his voice and asked, “Mianmian, it’s hot outside, why don’t you come in?”
Liu Yimian had no choice but to walk in with his head lowered.
Seeing that his cheeks were slightly red, Ji Wei only thought that it was from the sun, so he didn’t bother much and beckon him to come over.
“You took so long to get the water, I thought you might have fell into the well and was going to fish for you.” Ji Wei took out a wet towel from the basin and wringed it dry, laughing at him by the way.
Liu Yimian was a little embarrassed and glared at Ji Yiyi angrily. Before he could speak, a chill fell on his face.
He heard Ji Wei smiled, “Talk about applying medicine for me, look at your dirty cat-like face, let me wipe it for you first.”
After saying that, he rubs hard on his face.
Ji Wei doesn’t do this thing often, so he doesn’t have a clue about what strength to use. When he took off the towel, he saw that the tip of Liu Yimian’s nose was totally red, his eyes were a little straight, and he looked at him blankly.
Ji Wei chuckled, threw the towel into the basin, splashed a few drops on Liu Yimian’s body, and woke him up. As if to hide something, he hurriedly twisted the towel, bowed his head with red ears, and said, “Brother Ji, take off your clothes quickly, lie on the bed, I’ll–“
“So you want me to undress in a hurry? You should say it earlier, Brother Ji will satisfy you!” Ji Wei smirked aggravating the three words undressing, making Liu Yimian afraid to look up. He took off his clothes and jumped on the bed with a thud.
“What? Is Mianmian shy? Why don’t you dare to look at me? Didn’t you just ask me to take off my clothes? I’ve taken off my clothes, and I’ve been lying down. Why don’t you come?”
As soon as Liu Yimian looked up, he saw Ji Wei tick his fingers. He gritted his teeth and went over.
Initially, he still had some erotic thoughts, and when he saw the bruises on Ji Wei’s back, he felt very distressed. Even the movements of wiping Ji Wei’s body became softer, making Ji Wei feel a little wrong.
“Mianmian, I’m not made of porcelain, you can use more strength.” After Ji Wei finished speaking, he heard Liu Yimian sniff, and answered in a muffled voice.
He frowned, rolled over, and turned to look at the silly boy, who was wiping his tears behind his back.
Ji Wei reached out and wiped the trembling tear on the tip of his chin, and sighed, “Why are you crying, it’s not the first time I’ve been beaten anyway, you’ll get used to it, and it doesn’t hurt so much now.”
“If only I could help Brother Ji…” Liu Yimian rudely wiped away his tears with his sleeve, looked at Ji Wei with red eyes, and said softly.
Ji Weiyi listened, but smiled instead, “What? You are so small, you still want to stand up for your brother Ji? I’m afraid that you will die before you can start. I’m not willing to let you do that, just hide behind Brother Ji.”
“But what?” Ji Wei patted Liu Yimian’s arm, “Don’t but, let’s get some medicine on me. if the county magistrate hadn’t locked Liu Qing and the others up, I would never have let them off either.”
The last sentence was loud.
Ji Wei has never been a tolerant person. He drew a line, and he could easily forgive them if they didn’t cross that line. But once the boundary is crossed, the other party will definitely pay the price, even if it is by any means.
If it wasn’t for Liu Qing being sentenced to prison, he would have ruined his reputation and never let him have a place in Changliu Town!
Ji Wei lay comfortably on the pillow, enjoying Liu Yimian’s massage with the medicinal wine.
Liu Yimian’s hands were good, and after a few massages, his back became warm.
Ji Wei hummed comfortably.
After pressing the back, he turned over. Lying on the bed spread eagle, closed his eyes and waited.
Logically speaking, whatever Ji Wei has, Liu Yimian has it too.
But for some reason, Liu Yimian don’t know where to lay his eyes, and his hands became restrained, and not as fluent as before.
After a few hasty massages, he finished the medicinal wine. Just as he got up and wanted to leave, Ji Wei opened his eyes, grabbed his wrist, and ask him to massage him a bit longer.
Liu Yimian couldn’t help but continued.
After the full body massage, he was sweating profusely and his arms were sore.
He shook his wrist slightly, panting, “Brother Ji? Is that enough?”
No response from him.
“Are you asleep?”
Still no response.
Liu Yimian blinked, bent over to lie on the side of Ji Wei’s body, and carefully reached out to touch the thin green stubble on his lips. Seeing that he didn’t respond, he poked his sturdy arm again, which was full of tendons.
Ji Wei, who was sleeping soundly, turned over and muttered in his dream.
Liu Yimian, who was so frightened, got up quickly, clutched his thumping chest, sat on the edge of the bed, and murmured in confusion, “What is a massage?”
He couldn’t figure it out, So he shook his head and gave up.
He looked at Ji Wei’s arm enviously and pinched the soft flesh on his arm.
I seem to be gaining weight this month.
Liu Yimian suddenly became distressed.
