“Why are you so clumsy? What happened to the person who collided into you? Where did he go?” Xu Lan asked as he peeled the fruits.
“He got away.”
“Got away? He probably thought that you are an easy target! I, you…!” Xu Lan stood up immediately and paced around as an attempt to calm himself down.
“In my defense, I wasn’t paying attention. The person got away immediately after hitting me and I gave up on trying to catch him,” explained Li Xiu.
“Have some fruits!” Xu Lan looked at Li Xiu endearingly and concluded that Li Xiu was a gentle person. Li Xiu must be rich, to think that he chose to stay in a single room!
“The doctor said these are just bruises and they’re nothing serious. You just need to rest for a couple of days,” explained Xu Lan.
“Mmhmm, thank you, Brother Lan,” Li Xiu replied with a smile. Meanwhile, Xu Lan raised his brow and made his way out.
When he looked at Li Xiu earlier, he felt as though he was looking at a benevolent living embodiment of God. In comparison, he was a mere petty human. He was embarrassed.
“I’ll head back to the police station after paying for the medical fees. Just try and have a good rest.” Xu Lan left after offering his weak excuse.
“Papa…” Both of them spoke at the same time from both sides of the door, giving Xu Lan a shock. He was surprised by Bai Wu’s sudden appearance.
“Sergeant Xu, I heard that Officer Li met a car accident. This little guy insisted that we should visit,” Xiao Li cheerfully explained as he rearranged the flowers he brought into the vase and the fruits onto the table.
Xu Lan’s temple throbbed as he wondered what the little guy was up to. Earlier this morning, he was just complaining how much he hated Li Xiu. To think that he reached out to Xiao Li and orchestrated the visitation!
“Papa, didn’t you say that you’re going to make payment? Why are you still here? Uncle Sun is waiting for you in the police station,” urged Bai Wu.
“Alright. Xiao Li, please look after him while I head up and make payment,” instructed Xu Lan.
“Yeah, sure,” Xiao Li replied casually as he speculated.
‘Section Chief Sun wasn’t in when they left. If that’s the case, what’s the little guy up to? Didn’t he come for Sergeant Xu? If so, why is he so detached?’
“Comrade Li Fei, could you please get the doctor for me? My legs are hurting,” requested Li Xiu. Despite the fact that he was smiling, Li Xiu seemed to be in pain.
“Got it, I’ll get the doctor now.” Xiao Li made a dash for the doctor after seeing how uncomfortable Li Xiu was.
“Ah, there are more good people than bad in this world after all.” Bai Wu locked the door and walked toward Li Xiu.
“Look at what you’ve done to yourself, how stupid is that? Didn’t I warn you not to try anything funny? Why did you call Papa?” Bai Wu chuckled.
As Bai Wu spoke, he reached for Li Xiu’s blanket. His hands were covered with silverish white scales that seemed to be strong as steel.
“Did you think I was bluffing? Hmm?”
Bai Wu asked as he threw a punch at Li Xiu. His fist grazed Li Xiu’s ear and landed onto the bed. Upon impact, the bed gave way and collapsed with a loud thud, dragging Li Xiu onto the ground.
Li Xiu was terrified. Though, he tried to keep a smile on his face.
“Pft, what a disgusting face you have! You’re as disgusting as Qiaoyi!” Bai Wu retracted his hand and gave it a light blow, as though he was trying to clean his hand of the dust.
“You won’t actually hit me, would you? Surely your father will be angry, am I right?” Li Xiu said after he calmed himself down.
“I guess I’m right then? Haha, to think a dragon had to rely on a lowly human to survive, how pathetic is that!” Li Xiu snickered and his sharp laughter assaulted Bai Wu’s ears.
“Are you not a human yourself? Did you forget what you actually are just because you were chosen by a few traitors?”
Bai Wu was angered. ‘Should I show this person his place and make him realize just what I’m capable of?’
“You! You are a just lowly-being banished from the dragon clan! What rights do you have to criticize me!” Li Xiu roared after hearing Bai Wu’s words.
“Bai Wu! Bai Wu, are you in there?” Xu Lan ran into Xiao Li who was out trying to get a doctor. He was infuriated and knocked on the door loudly.
Beep, beep, beep, beep… Beep, beep, beep, beep…
“Papa, quick! Get the doctor! Officer Li’s bed collapsed!” Bai Wu cried as he rushed to get the door.
Xu Lan, Xiao Li, and the doctor walked in and were greeted by the sight of Li Xiu lying on a broken bed.
“What happened?” Xu Lan suppressed his anger and asked.
“After Officer Li’s bed collapsed suddenly, I shut the door because I was worried that the hospital will lock us up,” Bai Wu said as he hid behind Xu Lan and avoided eye contact with the doctor.
“Cough cough, the hospital doesn’t lock anyone up.” Amused by Bai Wu, the doctor reached for his head and gave him a pet.
“Doctor, why don’t you take a look at the patient first?” Xu Lan stopped the doctor and said.
“Hmm, alright. He’s too cute, I can’t help myself but pet him,” the doctor retracted his hand as he explained.
“Uh huh, he is cute.”
“Pfft…” Xiao Li could not believe how Sergeant Xu was complimenting the child and that he did it so naturally! Zhu Jing would not believe it.
Xiao Li wished that he had a recording, which would at least make his words seem more believable.
The doctor too was stunted. He smiled as he went to check on Li Xiu.
