Chapter 31: It Was For Her


TL: Resonance

    阮夜笙没料到奚墨会心细到这个程度, 刚才对她说的那句嘱咐语气还那么柔和,显然是关心她的,欣喜之下心底只如砂糖融化般绵软了,眼睛直勾勾地盯着奚墨。

Ruan Yesheng didn’t expect Xi Mo to be so attentive. The tone she used to exhort her earlier was also so gentle, Xi Mo obviously cared for her. In her joy, Ruan Yesheng’s heart felt soft like melted sugar and she stared straight at Xi Mo.

    她虽然没开口, 但是眼睛里的神色媚得像能滴出水来,每一滴水仿佛都蕴着千言万语似的。

Ruan Yesheng wasn’t speaking but her eyes were so fawning it looked as if it could condense out droplets of water and every drop of water seemed to contain a thousand words.

    奚墨被她这眼神看得略微偏过了目光,似乎有点不自在,绷着一张脸转过身朝电梯走去。

Xi Mo looked away slightly after being stared at with those eyes, seemingly feeling a little uncomfortable. She turned around with a sullen face and walked towards the lift.

    阮夜笙心中暗笑, 赶紧追了上去,和奚墨并肩而行。她心里高兴,走在这早已看腻了的酒店通道里,却到处都是好风景。

Ruan Yesheng laughed in her heart. She hurriedly chased after Xi Mo and walked with her shoulder to shoulder. Because she was feeling happy, the hotel passageway which she was long tired of seeing became wonderful scenery everywhere.

    “你关心我。”电梯里就她们两个人, 阮夜笙毫不避讳, 笑盈盈说。

“You care about me.” There were only two of them in the lift. Ruan Yesheng didn’t have to hide at all and said with a smile.

    奚墨真是这辈子没见过这么样不知矜持为何物的, 不由冷道:“别误会。我是怕你头发没干,一不小心感冒了发起烧来, 如果烧坏了脑子, 到时候就算身体换回来也还是我倒霉。”

In Xi Mo’s life, she had never seen anyone lacking so much knowledge in the concept called restrain. She couldn’t help but said coldly, “Do not misunderstand.  I’m just afraid that if you don’t dry your hair, you might catch a cold and get a fever. If the fever fried your brain, it would be me who is unlucky when we exchange our bodies back.”

    阮夜笙还是说:“你关心我。”

Ruan Yesheng was still saying: “You care about me.”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    你到底有没有在听!

Are you even listening!

    她本以为阮夜笙肯定也会和以前一样呛声回来, 早就做好心理准备了,按照她多年的经验——不嘴炮的阮夜笙就不是阮夜笙。

She originally thought that Ruan Yesheng would definitely argue back like she always did in the past and was mentally prepared. According to her many years of experience—A Ruan Yesheng that doesn’t shoot back wasn’t Ruan Yesheng.

    阮夜笙拨弄了下半干的长发, 轻轻说:“其实我心里并不想真的和你斗嘴,你就当我嘴贱吧。如果有一天, 我不会再和你斗嘴, 那就好了。”

Ruan Yesheng fiddled with her half-dry long hair and said softly, “In my heart, I don’t actually want to fight with you. Just take it that I’m always speaking without thinking. It would be great if I learned not to quarrel with you again one day.”

    她的声音轻得像微风, 看过来的目光也柔得似花瓣,仿佛下一刻这句话就随着风里的花飘走了,并没有在这封闭的电梯里存在过。

Her voice was as light as a gentle breeze, and the look she sent over was soft like petals. It seems as if this sentence will drift away the next moment like flowers in the wind, as if it never existed within this closed lift.

    奚墨略略一怔,只听叮的一声,电梯门打开了。

Xi Mo was slightly startled. Hearing a ‘ding’, the lift door opened.

    楼层到了,两个人一前一后走出来,奚墨道:“我在这等你。”

They reached their floor and the two of them walked out one after another. Xi Mo said, “I will wait for you here.”

    阮夜笙看她都这么说了,也就没有再邀请她,说了句“我很快就回来”,回房间去吹头发。

Ruan Yesheng saw that she had already said so like this, so she didn’t invite her again. Leaving behind a “I’ll be back soon”, Ruan Yesheng returned back to her room to dry her hair.

    生怕奚墨等太久,阮夜笙整理完毕就拿着包赶紧出来,远远地就瞧见奚墨站在电梯口,旁边戳着一个木桩子似的顾栖松。这两人相隔有些距离,一个高贵冷艳,一个锯嘴葫芦,都不是爱说话的性格,想必也没什么沟通,就这么各自站着。

Ruan Yesheng quickly got out after packing her bag for fear of keeping Xi Mo waiting for too long. For afar, she saw Xi Mo standing by the lift. Beside her stood Gu Qisong who looked like a wooden stake poking from the ground. The two of them were standing some distance apart. One was cold and noble and the other was like a sealed gourd, both of them had personalities which didn’t like to speak. They probably didn’t communicate much and just stood there like this.

    阮夜笙看了奚墨一眼,朝顾栖松道:“顾栖松,你有事找我?”

Ruan Yesheng gave Xi Mo a glance and said to Gu Qisong, “Gu Qisong, are you looking for me for something?”

    顾栖松道:“小墨,路先生听说你晚上约了阮小姐吃饭,让我保护你们。”

Gu Qisong said, “Xiao[1] Mo, Mr. Lu heard that you had an appointment with Miss Ruan for dinner and asked me to protect the two of you.”

    站在一边的奚墨一脸被雷劈过的阴沉:“……”

Xi Mo, who was standing at the side, had a gloomy expression as if struck by thunder: “…”

    小墨?

Xiao Mo?

    长这么大还没人这么称呼过她,何况还是半路不知道从哪杀出来的一个保镖,即便现在她的身份由阮夜笙顶替,阮夜笙和这保镖也没到那么熟的份上。

No one has ever called her that before in her entire life, not to mention a bodyguard who came out of nowhere just recently. Even if her identity is currently being replaced by Ruan Yesheng, Ruan Yesheng and this bodyguard are not so close to the point of using such kind of addressing.

    奚墨一个字一个字慢吞吞地问顾栖松:“顾先生,你刚才叫她什么。”

Xi Mo slowly asked Gu Qisong word by word, “Mr. Gu, what did you call her just now?”

    “小墨。”顾栖松就是个不懂得看人脸色的棒槌,此刻智商断电,情商欠费,回答得一脸正气。

“Xiao Mo.” Gu Qisong was a wooden club who didn’t know how to read people’s mood. Currently, his IQ electricity got cut and he hasn’t paid the fees for his EQ as he replied with a face full of righteousness.

    阮夜笙赶紧将奚墨拉到一边,低声说:“之前有一次我开玩笑让他这么称呼的,没想到他当了真,估计也改不过来了。”

Ruan Yesheng quickly pulled Xi Mo aside and whispered, “I’ve joked with him previously asking him to address me that way. I didn’t expect that he would treat it seriously. We probably can’t change it back anymore.”

    “老实交代,你到底给我挖了多少坑。”奚墨道。

“Frankly explain, how many pits have you dug for me.” Xi Mo said.

    “真没多少,当时就是开玩笑,我不知道他这么正经,全都会当真,以后再也不会了。”阮夜笙抿着唇,头略微低着,只将一双眼睛抬起来小心翼翼地看过来。以前奚墨擦的唇色都比较淡雅,现在阮夜笙使用的唇色会相对媚一些,抿唇的时候带出一抹轻咬的润泽,更显得楚楚可怜。

“There truly isn’t much. I was really joking at that time. I didn’t know that he was so serious and took it all seriously. There won’t be a next time.” Ruan Yesheng pursed her lips and lowered her head slightly, only lifting a pair of eyes to look over cautiously. In the past, the lipsticks Xi Mo applied were all lighter in colour and more elegant in nature. The lipstick Ruan Yesheng was using now was more charming in nature. When she pursed her lips, it brought out a small nibbling amount of moisture, making her look more pitiful.

    奚墨盯着阮夜笙,盯了一会,脸还是绷着,不过渐渐的也有点绷不住的趋势。过了一会,她语气缓和了下来,悄悄道:“你就不能让他再改口?我听着有点起鸡皮疙瘩。”

Xi Mo stared at Ruan Yesheng. After staring for a while, her face was still sullen, but it was gradually becoming more relaxed. After a while, she calmed down and whispered, “Can’t you make him change the way he addresses you? I get goosebumps whenever I hear it.”

    如果后面和阮夜笙换回来,每天听这么一个金刚铁塔似的保镖用一种棒槌似的语气叫自己小墨,声音太美她不敢听。

If she and Ruan Yesheng switched back their bodies afterwards and she had to listen to this iron tower-like bodyguard use such a wooden club-like tone to call her ‘Xiao Mo’… The voice is so beautiful that she dares not listen.

    阮夜笙也小声说:“没办法,他人比较……固执。”

Ruan Yesheng also whispered, “I can’t. He is… quite a stubborn person.”

    看来这事是板上钉钉没法再改变,奚墨只好默默忍了。

It seemed that this matter was firmly established and couldn’t be changed. Xi Mo had no choice but to endure it in silence.

    阮夜笙低头看看表,看向顾栖松那边:“你吃过晚饭了没?”

Ruan Yesheng looked down at her watch, then looked at Gu Qisong, “Have you had dinner?”

    顾栖松道:“我吃过了,小墨。”

Gu Qisong said, “I have eaten, Xiao Mo.”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    阮夜笙嘱咐顾栖松:“待会我和阮夜笙去吃饭,你就不要跟着去了,就在酒店餐厅,又不出去,不会有什么事的。你转告路清明,叫他每天不要太紧张了,我看着也累,每天你这么跟着,我也不方便。”

Ruan Yesheng told Gu Qisong, “Ruan Yesheng and I will be having dinner together later, you don’t have to follow. We’ll be eating at the hotel restaurant and won’t be going out. Nothing will happen. You tell Lu Qingming to not be too nervous every day. I feel tired seeing him like that. It’s also inconvenient for me if you follow me like this everyday.”

    顾栖松没有立刻回答,只闷头闷脑地说:“小墨,请你等一下。”

Gu Qisong didn’t answer her request right away. Instead, he said seriously, “Xiao Mo, please wait a moment.”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    顾栖松叫“小墨”这种昵称级别的称呼时就是在棒读,没有半点语气起伏,惨不忍听,奚墨听着听着,感觉自己正在被凌迟。

Even when he was addressing Ruan Yesheng with a nickname level form of address called “Xiao Mo”, Gu Qisong had done so very stiffly without any fluctuation in his tone. It is so miserable that Xi Mo couldn’t bear to listen. As Xi Mo listened, she felt as if she was subjected to Lingchi.

    顾栖松发了几条微信,得到回复之后,他向阮夜笙点了点头。

Gu Qisong sent a few WeChat messages, and after getting a reply, he nodded to Ruan Yesheng.

    阮夜笙顿时松了一口气,朝奚墨使个眼色,两个人走进电梯,门关上了,将顾栖松隔在外面。

Ruan Yesheng immediately relaxed. Giving Xi Mo a meaningful glance, the two of them entered the lift and let the door close, keeping Gu Qisong outside.

    到了定好的包厢里,横竖就两个人,包厢桌子大,两个人就坐在一个角落,挨得很近,奚墨将那袋子水果随手放在多余的一张椅子上,也没什么话。

They soon reached the reserved room. Since there were only the two of them and the table in the room was huge, the two of them sat closely together at one corner. Xi Mo placed the bag of fruits on another chair without saying anything.

    菜很快就上来了,三个热菜,一个冷盘,一个汤。

The dishes came quickly. There were three hot vegetable dishes, one cold dish, and one soup.

    阮夜笙默默吃。

Ruan Yesheng ate in silence.

    奚墨也默默吃。

Xi Mo also ate in silence.

    这气氛有些微妙。

The atmosphere is a bit profound.

    阮夜笙一边吃一边拿眼风悄悄打量奚墨,见她吃饭时细嚼慢咽的,身板挺得笔直,总是一副良好教养的模样,即使现在换了身体,那种气质也还是自然流露,仿佛这种高贵是与生俱来的。她家背景很深,横跨商界和政界,阮夜笙也是听说她的父亲一面对她疼爱,一面却又要求非常严格,可能从小她就被教导“食不言”,用餐礼仪太过到位,导致每次和她吃饭都有些冷清的滋味。

Ruan Yesheng quietly looked at Xi Mo from the corner of her eye while eating. Xi Mo chewed slowly while she ate and her body was upright. She always gave off the feeling of being well-educated. Even though their body was now exchanged, that kind of temperament is still naturally revealed, as if this nobleness is innate. She has a deep family background spanning across business and politics. Ruan Yesheng has also heard that while Xi Mo’s father doted on her, he was also very strict with her. She may have been taught “do not speak while eating” when she was young, for her dining etiquette is too good. As a result, every time Ruan Yesheng ate with her, it felt a little cheerless.

    即使冷清,阮夜笙还是看得开心。

Even though it was cheerless, Ruan Yesheng still felt happy looking at her.

    不过偶尔也会希望她和自己独处时,能更自由自在一点,不用端着那些讲究的礼仪。如果她在自己面前不再那么讲究了,能更放开一些,是否意味着心底那棵以往被自己小心遮掩的树有了一丝开花的机会?

Occasionally though, she wished that Xi Mo would be a little more free when she was alone with her and don’t have to uphold those particular etiquettes. If Xi Mo is no longer so particular about how she acts before her and is more relaxed, does that mean that the tree at the bottom of Ruan Yesheng heart that was carefully hidden by her has a chance to bloom?

    阮夜笙想到这,一口菜夹在半空,也没顾得上送进嘴里,嘴角勾起一个无可奈何的弧度。

As Ruan Yesheng thought about this, the mouthful of dish she scooped up was held midair without a chance to enter her mouth. The corner of her lips arc up into a helpless smile.

    或许以前从未想过会有什么结果,也不敢想,所以阮夜笙比较随便,什么话都敢说。

In the past, she probably never thought that they would ever have an outcome and didn’t even dared to think about it at all, so Ruan Yesheng was more casual and dared to say anything.

    她现在有点敢想了,但是却又开始忐忑不安。

She dared to think a little about it now, but she also began to feel uneasy.

    以往戴上笑容面具,她什么也不怕,一旦全身心地沉浸其中,如果结局不如自己的希冀,伤心难过,是否又要戴上面具来自我舔舐伤口。从那时候起,她的安全感就一点一点消散,独自一人踽踽独行,戴上面具小心翼翼地呵护着那一点名为希望的星星之火,不能叫它灭了。

In the past, she always wore a smiling mask, so she wasn’t afraid of anything. The moment she chooses to fully immerse herself in it, if the ending isn’t as good as she hopes and causes her to be hurt and sad, would she have to put on her mask again to lick her own wounds? Since then, her sense of security has disappeared little by little. As she walks alone on her lonely path, she would wear her mask and carefully protect that little spark of fire known as hope and can’t let it extinguish.

    想到这,阮夜笙又有点自嘲地笑笑。

Thinking of this, Ruan Yesheng smiled somewhat self-deprecatingly.

    那是很遥远的。

That is very far away.

    她或许不该想那么远。

Maybe she shouldn’t think so far.

    她在这种患得患失的思绪中起伏了许久,那口菜还悬着,没吃下去。

Her mood went up and down as she remained in this contemplative state of thought for a long time. That mouthful of dish was still hanging in the air without being swallowed.

    奚墨在旁看了她好一会,终于忍不住了,把那“食不言”的鬼扯家教甩到一旁,幽幽道:“这菜这么香?你闻这么久。”

Xi Mo looked at her from the side for a while and finally couldn’t take it. Tossing aside her god damn family upbringing of “do not speak while eating”, she said faintly, “Is that dish so fragrant? You have been smelling it for so long.”

    阮夜笙:“……”

Ruan Yesheng: “…”

    她赶紧把那口菜吃下去,想着刚才奚墨难道一直在盯着自己,顿时有了一种心思被看破的尴尬。不过这种尴尬稍纵即逝,她向来很会伪装自己,挑起眼角笑:“我知道你有强迫症,看别人夹了菜半天都不吃,你难受。”

She quickly ate that mouthful of dish. As she thought about the fact that Xi Mo might have been staring at her earlier, she immediately felt embarrassed as if her thoughts had been seen through. But this embarrassment is fleeting for she is always good at disguising herself. Her eyes bent into a smile as she said, “I know that you have OCD. You feel uncomfortable seeing others hold up their dish and not eat it for a long time.”

    “闭嘴。”奚墨瞥她。

“Shut up.” Xi Mo glanced at her.

    阮夜笙又夹了一筷子菜,端着碗将那筷子送到嘴边,就是不张口来吃,斜眼盯着奚墨。

Ruan Yesheng picked up another mouthful of vegetable with her chopsticks again and held it near her mouth while holding it above her bowl. However, she just wouldn’t open her mouth to eat it as she stared at Xi Mo.

    “别幼稚。”奚墨道:“快吃。”

“Don’t be childish.” Xi Mo said, “Quickly eat.”

    阮夜笙还就不吃,故意吊着这个强迫症。

Ruan Yesheng just wouldn’t eat it and purposely evoked Xi Mo’s OCD.

    奚墨知道她故意使坏,冷笑:“那我喂你吃。”

Xi Mo knew that she was deliberately messing around and sneered, “Then I will feed you.”

    说着就要靠过来,阮夜笙哪里想到平常她那么在乎用餐礼仪,端坐着那副优雅样,现在竟然会无视规矩来这一套,吓得她一个措手不及之下,那口菜直接塞嘴里,稀里糊涂没嚼几下就吞下去了。

As she said so, she started leaning over. Ruan Yesheng didn’t expect that Xi Mo would ignore the etiquette and play the game with her as Xi Mo usually cared for the dining etiquette a lot and always sat upright and elegantly. Ruan Yesheng was caught off guard and stuffed the mouthful of vegetables directly into her mouth from the shock. She barely chewed on the vegetables before swallowing it all down in confusion.

    阮夜笙:“……”

Ruan Yesheng: “…”

    奚墨也没料到她竟然这么狼狈地吞下去了,赶紧站起来倒了一杯水,递到她面前。

Xi Mo also didn’t expect that she would swallow her food so embarrassedly. She quickly stood up to pour a cup of water and passed it to Ruan Yesheng.

    阮夜笙眼睛睁大,看着她。

Ruan Yesheng widened her eyes and looked at her.

    奚墨示意她喝水,轻声道:“噎到了?”

Xi Mo motioned for her to drink the water and said softly, “Did you choke on the food?”

    阮夜笙的脸上勾出一抹诡异的红晕,定定神色,接过奚墨递给她的水小口抿着。

A strange blush appeared on Ruan Yesheng’s face. After calming down, she received the water from Xi Mo and took a sip.

    奚墨见她没有被噎到,这才好像放松了下来,重新坐回椅子上,继续端着她的餐桌礼仪,只是嘴上说:“吃这么快做什么,表演奶牛吃草?”

Xi Mo seemed to have relaxed after seeing that she didn’t choke on her food. She sat back down on her chair and continued to uphold her table manners. However, she said, “Why are you eating so fast? Are you acting as a cow eating grass?”

    阮夜笙喝过水,想到她竟然在用餐时和自己说话,而且颇有点玩笑的味道,心情也和脸上的红晕一样微妙起来,她遮掩了一下,故作大方地承认道:“是啊。不过你还特地喂水给奶牛喝,难道你是养牛的?你养我了么?”

Ruan Yesheng finished drinking her water. As she thought about the fact that Xi Mo was actually talking to her while she was eating and was even joking a little, her mood became as profound as the blush on her face. She covered it up and pretended to admit generously “That’s right. But you also specially fed the cow water. Don’t tell me you’re raising this cow? You’re raising me?”

    奚墨反唇相讥:“你现在拿着我的卡,我没养你么?”

Xi Mo answered back sarcastically, “You are holding my card now, am I not raising you?”

    阮夜笙:“……”

Ruan Yesheng: “…”

    奚墨也顿住了,见她愣住,以为阮夜笙误解了什么。毕竟阮夜笙向来很有自尊心,本来就一直在为用奚墨的卡而介意,但是因为情况特殊,她的收入又无法承担奚墨这种天后级别的消费,光是日常保养这一项的费用都贵得让人咋舌,也是没办法才拿了奚墨之前留给她的卡,心里暗自打算以后赚了钱再还给奚墨。

Xi Mo also paused. Seeing Ruan Yesheng stunned, Xi Mo thought that she had misunderstood. After all, Ruan Yesheng always had high self-esteem. She always minded it when she had to use Xi Mo’s card. However, they had a special circumstance and Ruan Yesheng’s income wasn’t enough to afford Xi Mo’s empress-grade consumption. Just the cost of daily maintenance alone is staggeringly expensive. Ruan Yesheng had no choice but to use the card Xi Mo had left behind for her previously. She had quietly planned to return Xi Mo the money after earning money in the future.

    奚墨有点尴尬,低声道:“我不是那个意思。我的意思是我的卡养着我的身体,这很正常,你现在用着我的身体,所以我养你,也很正常。你别误会。”

Xi Mo felt a little awkward. She said with a lowered voice, “That’s not what I meant. What I meant is that my card is used to raise my body. This is normal. You’re now using my body, so it’s normal for me to raise you too. Don’t misunderstand.”

    阮夜笙深知她的性格,她虽然冷漠自傲,却从来不会真的去伤害一个人的自尊,又怎么会误会呢,她只是被奚墨说出“养她”这样词意暧昧的话而惊住了——即使奚墨并不是那个意思。

Ruan Yesheng knows Xi Mo’s character well. Although she is indifferent and proud, she would never really hurt a person’s self-esteem. How was it possible for Ruan Yesheng to misunderstand? She was merely shocked by the ambiguous words ‘raising you’ said by Xi Mo—Even if Xi Mo didn’t mean it that way.

    现在奚墨这样硬邦邦地解释,阮夜笙就更想笑了,她微笑道:“我知道的。‘你养我’,我很开心,你也别担心我会误会什么。”

Ruan Yesheng felt like laughing more now that Xi Mo was explaining to her so stiffly like this. She said with a smile, “I know. I’m very happy that you’re ‘raising me’. You don’t have to worry that I might misunderstand.”

    奚墨没再接话,看神色似乎是放心了。

Xi Mo didn’t answer again but her expression seemed to have relaxed.

    吃到后面,阮夜笙的手没注意,不小心碰到了自己的膝盖,疼得她蹙起眉,缓了好一会才勉强好一点,端起水杯又喝了口水。

Nearing the end of their meal, Ruan Yesheng didn’t pay attention to where she placed her hands and accidentally touched her knees, causing her to frown from the pain. It took a while for it to get better. She held up the cup of water to drink again.

    奚墨将她的表情看在眼里,也蹙了眉,冷不丁道:“你上药了么?”

Xi Mo saw her expression and also frowned. She said abruptly, “Have you applied any ointment?”

    她指的当然是膝盖。跪了那么多次,不用说也知道很疼。

Of course she was referring to the knees. After kneeling so many times, it was needless to say that it hurts.

    阮夜笙明白过来,摇摇头,笑意自然地浮了起来:“没有,我以为没什么事的。”

Ruan Yesheng understood her question and shook her head, her smile naturally appearing. “No, I thought it was okay.”

    之前因为丁沛紧张导致多次重拍,她前前后后跪了太多次,膝盖其实都跪青了。白天忙得没时间,那种淤伤的疼痛又是慢慢发作的,之前还不明显,就没太在意,收工后又一门心思想着晚上和奚墨吃饭的事,也没顾得上药,现在痛劲上来了,稍微碰一下都疼得不行。

Ding Pei was nervous and resulted in many reshoots before. She knelt back and forth too many times, causing bruises to form on her knees. She was too busy during the day, and the pain from this kind of bruise always came slowly. It wasn’t obvious before, so she didn’t care too much. After they got off work, she kept thinking about the dinner she was going to have with Xi Mo at night, so she didn’t apply any ointment either. Now that the pain has come, it hurts a lot even if she was only giving it a light touch.

    奚墨站起来,走到旁边那条空闲的椅子上,在装水果的大袋子里翻了翻,翻出一个很小的塑料袋来。

Xi Mo stood up and walked to the free chair next to her. She flipped through the big bag of fruits and pulled out a small plastic bag.

    小塑料袋里裹着什么,她也不说话,将那小袋子递给阮夜笙。

She did not say what the small plastic bag contained and just handed it to Ruan Yesheng.

    阮夜笙接过来一看,发现里面是一小瓶活血化瘀的药油,从包装袋上印的名字来看,就是酒店外面那个连锁药店,阮夜笙记得那药店离奚墨后面进去的水果店很近,应该就是之前奚墨在外面转悠的时候买的。

Ruan Yesheng received the bag and took a look inside to find a small bottle of medicinal oil for promoting blood circulation and clearing blood clots. Judging from the name printed on the bag, it belongs to the drugstore chain outside the hotel. Ruan Yesheng remembered that the drugstore was very close to the fruit store that Xi Mo entered afterwards. It should have been bought when Xi Mo was wandering outside.

    盯着这瓶药油看了许久,阮夜笙眼睛里的笑都快溢出来了。

Ruan Yesheng stared at the bottle of medicinal oil for a long time and the smile in her eyes was almost overflowing out.

    她不知道奚墨为什么要去水果店,也不知道奚墨在水果店做了什么,但是她至少知道奚墨为什么要去药店了。

She didn’t know why Xi Mo went to the fruit store, nor what Xi Mo did in the fruit store, but she at least knew why Xi Mo went to the drugstore.

    是为了她。

It was for her.

    或者说,是为了她的膝盖。

Or rather, it was for her knees.
