100kV Chapter 42

Chapter 42
Going to London
The Hospital and the Girl

After all this, Ye Wenxuan returned to the hallway of Xing Yuan’s operating room. Seeing that the operating room door was open, he asked a nurse passing by about the situation.

“Are you the relative of the patient just now?” The nurse pointed upstairs: “The operation is done. I heard that there is no danger of death, so he has already been transferred to the hospital ward. You can go up and find him.”

Ye Wenxuan thanked the nurse and then turned to run upstairs.

Xing Yuan was arranged in a three-person ward. The curtains were pulled on the other two beds, and there were relatives visiting the bed closest to the door. Ye Wenxuan went in and saw a group of people huddled around the bed. The ward was noisy, the sound of children crying grating in his ears.

Xing Yuan lay in the middle bed with his eyes closed, deaf to the noise around him.

Ye Wenxuan walked over and hadn’t been able to look around carefully when the curtain to the innermost bed suddenly moved.

A little girl drilled through from behind the curtain. She stood still when she saw Ye Wenxuan and stared at him carefully for a moment, and then ran away along the wall.

That little girl was wearing a somewhat unclean dress, her blond curls were dry and limp. She wore a mask on her face, saying nothing from beginning to end.

Ye Wenxuan glanced at her and then took back his sight. He pulled closed all of the curtains around the bed.

After that, he moved a chair next to the bed so that he could take a closer look at Xing Yuan’s situation.

This always tough and cold man was now lying in bed with serious injuries. His face revealed signs of his condition, and also made him look much weaker.

It was just like a cracked piece of ice, as if it would shatter with just a single touch.

However, this was only in Ye Wenxuan’s imagination. He was well aware that if this man woke up, he would quickly protect himself and return to his previous state.

Thinking about this, Ye Wenxuan reached out a hand and touched the man’s eyelids with his fingertip, lightly touching the eyes under the layer of skin.

Zheng Xingguo’s words from that call were still reverberating in his ears. Ye Wenxuan suddenly became distracted, remembering what he had said.

——The superhumans in this world, is not just you alone.

——Protect the sapphire.

He touched those eyeballs and slowly retreated his hands: “Sapphire…is that you.”

It’s really like a sapphire.

The people who were visiting the patient next to them left one after another, and the ward fell back into silence.

Ye Wenxuan rubbed his fingers and muttered: “He doesn’t want my protection at all.”

A long time later.

Xing Yuan woke up from his coma, his mind in a mess, leaving him somewhat confused about where he was.

He squinted and rested for a bit, and then tried to move his fingers. He rolled his eyes around, quickly observing the things around him.

It was dark, but he quickly came to the conclusion that he was in a ward.

Looking at the physiotherapy equipment next to him, this place was not a clinic, but should be a medium-sized hospital.

On the right side of the bed, there was a young man sprawled on his arms next to his hand, it seemed like he had been sleeping for some time.

He buried his head in his arms, revealing only a small half of his face. That long hair was not gathered up like before, but scattered over his shoulder and the bed. It looked extremely soft, so that other people would always feel the urge to touch it.

Xing Yuan’s brain was still not quite sober, so it took him a few seconds to react, this person was Ye Wenxuan.

His right hand was uninjured. He hooked up a handful of hair scattered on the bed and pulled.

Ye Wenxuan shook, quickly raising his arms and standing up.

Ye Wenxuan: “?!”

Xing Yuan calmly met his gaze. He was still very weak, his voice hoarse: “I told you to go to Cantel, you didn’t listen.”

Ye Wenxuan: “…”

He forcefully let out a breath, and slapped away Xing Yuan’s palm: “You f*king scared me to death…”

Xing Yuan’s hand was deflected and stayed suspended in the air, still somewhat unable to come back to his senses.

“You were almost dead, if I really drove to Cantel, your body might have already been cold by the time I got there.” Ye Wenxuan wiped his face and tiredly responded: “You just woke up and already started lecturing people, you really treat your life-saving benefactor like this?”

No one knew how much the person on the bed was listening to him. He just rubbed his fingers, as if he could still feel the coolness of the silky hair on his fingers.

He said dumbly: “Thank you.” After speaking, he asked: “Where are we?”

Ye Wenxuan: “Cain town, three and a half hours away from Cantel. It can be considered a relatively large town around here.”

Xing Yuan wanted to sit up, but was pushed back by a finger from Ye Wenxuan: “You need to rest now, what do you want to do, I’ll help you.”

Xing Yuan looked at him.

The other person looked back at him calmly.

The curtains around the bed were tightly closed, and only the lamp beside the bed gave off any light. Ye Wenxuan was worried the people next to them could hear them, so he bent down and spoke in Xing Yuan’s ear.

“I have collected your cell phone, USB, and pistol. Cherno called earlier, I told him the address here. Liang Haoying didn’t respond, I don’t know if he’s dead or alive.” He whispered: “What else do you want to know?”

Xing Yuan tightly stared at his eyes, his voice still somewhat weak: “What time is it now?”

Ye Wenxuan: “Morning…” He turned and looked at his phone: “3:45.”

“The Flying Wolves and Brotherhood will have caught up.” Xing Yuan said: “There’s a hospital here, and their drones have cameras, they definitely know that we have wounded people.”

Ye Wenxuan: “You just finished your operation, you need to rest.”

Xing Yuan: “Help me up, let’s go right now.”

Ye Wenxuan looked at his icy blue eyes, and suddenly reached out and rubbed between his eyebrows: “Calm down, I will protect you.”

“…” Xing Yuan’s words were stuck at his throat, choked back by Ye Wenxuan’s comforting words.

And then Ye Wenxuan still even placed his hand on his forehead, extremely playfully saying: “My princess, I will not leave you, quickly close your eyes, continue to sleep.”

Xing Yuan’s goosebumps were about to fall off his skin: “…F*k, take your hand away.”

Ye Wenxuan remained unmoved. He still lay over Xing Yuan’s body, only turning his head: “The little girl disturbing the princess, what do you want to do hiding there?”

Xing Yuan’s expression changed.

The weakness caused by his injury dulled his senses, and he actually didn’t find that the curtain next to the bed had been pulled aside slightly.

The little girl Ye Wenxuan saw earlier was hiding behind the curtain. Her position was still in the innermost bed. Ye Wenxuan had asked the nurse earlier, no patient was staying there, it was an empty bed.

This little girl had secretly come in.

Seeing people look toward her, the girl shifted back slightly, but this time she didn’t run.

Xing Yuan furrowed his eyebrows: “A little girl can actually randomly break in, I really question the security measures in this hospital.”

Ye Wenxuan walked over and bent down, whispering: “What’s the matter?”

The little girl was still wearing the same outfit as before. She only looked up with that pair of big eyes at Ye Wenxuan. After a while, she slowly walked inside the curtain, and then suddenly extended a hand, gently pulling at his sleeve.

Ye Wenxuan: “Well…where’s your mom and dad?”

The little girl didn’t speak, just pulling at him again, this time with more force.

Ye Wenxuan: “?”

Before he could figure out what was going on, the door to the ward was opened from the outside. There was a squeaking sound, followed by a man’s anxious whisper: “Kathy, are you there?”

The little girl blinked and then began to pull him out of the curtain.

Ye Wenxuan: “Hey, wait…”

The curtain was lifted, and a man with handsome features wearing a knit cap looked inside.

He might have just been doing a routine check, and didn’t think that the person was actually there. The hand holding up the curtain paused: “Uh, Kathy, what are you doing here?”

The girl turned to look at the man. Her right hand still pulled at Ye Wenxuan’s sleeve, and she used her left hand to point at Ye Wenxuan, as if she wanted to say something.

This time Ye Wenxuan confirmed that this little girl named Kathy could not speak.

“Kathy, this is someone else’s ward, you can’t just randomly go in.” The man went over to pick her up, and said with apology: “Sorry, the child didn’t understand and bothered the two of you.”

The girl wrapped her arm around the man’s neck, it could be seen that she was very dependent on him.

Ye Wenxuan’s gaze swept over his bandaged arms and neck: “You are her…?”

“I’m her brother, my name is Adonis.” The man smiled. He looked tired, and his smile didn’t reach his eyes: “It’s very nice to meet you, Kathy has given you all trouble. We will leave now.”

Ye Wenxuan sent the two people out of the ward. After the two disappeared around the corner of the hallway, he took back his sight and quietly added an electrostatic trap to the door of the ward.

The sick patient next to them was sleeping soundly, from time to time they could hear some slight snoring.

Ye Wenxuan walked back to the middle bed. Once he pulled open the curtain he found that Xing Yuan had already sat up on his own.

“…” He was a little helpless: “I say, are you really going to force yourself so tightly? You might not be tired, but I feel tired looking at you.”

Xing Yuan sat on the bed and took a couple deep breaths, then looked at him: “Habit.”

“Then you can try to change this habit.” Ye Wenxuan walked over to the bed and pressed the call button: “Since you’re not preparing to rest, I’ll just ask the doctor to come and check you over again.”

Xing Yuan didn’t refuse this time.

The result was that when the doctor pushed open the door to come in, he was first electrocuted by the static electricity trap, almost kneeling down from the numbness across his entire body.

The nurses who followed him over quickly helped him, and that current transmitted through the doctor, so those nurses were also electrocuted.

Ye Wenxuan: “…”

Xing Yuan: “…”

Ye Wenxuan coughed dryly and quickly went over to help them: “Doctor are you all right, the weather has been quite dry recently, don’t touch the wall too much ah.”

The doctor still had a stupefied expression, and still felt disbelief after being helped up. He looked at the ward door for half a day, and then carefully touched the door handle.

The nurse stabbed him in the back with her medical record folder.

Ye Wenxuan pretended not to see their movements, just pulling open the curtain to the middle bed and letting the medical staff in: “My big brother just woke up, doctor please come take a look at him.”

The nurse poked him even harder, and that middle-aged doctor finally woke up like from a dream: “Oh…good…good…”

And so when the doctor and nurses left, Ye Wenxuan still saw from far away the doctor standing in the door of another ward carefully touching the door handle. He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, he felt that he had been agitated by the news “Little Sister” had sent him, and wasn’t calm enough.

Xing Yuan’s wound was no longer infected, which was good news. But the doctor said that it would be best for him to stay in the hospital for three days. Ye Wenxuan guessed that Xing Yuan definitely would not agree.

Sure enough, before the sun had come up, Xing Yuan already wanted to be discharged.

Ye Wenxuan thought for a bit, and felt they really should leave: “First we will go to Cantel. After we get there we can discuss further to see if we want to find a way back to London or find the nearest airport and go directly back home.”

At 5:30 in the morning, Ye Wenxuan went through the discharge procedures, and met the little girl named Kathy in the first floor lobby.

This little girl was always following him for some unknown reason. Ye Wenxuan didn’t see her brother, so he still walked over to ask her: “Why are you here, your brother?”

Kathy looked at him, and then reached to point at the stairs.

That might mean that her brother was upstairs.

“Your brother works here?” Ye Wenxuan saw her shake her head and guessed: “Then is he here as a patient?”

Kathy blinked and nodded.

Ye Wenxuan: “Why are you always running around the hospital? It’s dangerous, don’t you know?”

Kathy came to pull at him again and tried to bring him upstairs.

Ye Wenxuan was crying and laughing again, this was the first time a child was so close to him. He pulled his shirt from the child’s hand and patted her head: “Be obedient, go play by yourself. I need to leave.”

After saying that, he turned and left the hospital. He needed to drive over the SUV he had hidden in the woods nearby.

After getting the car, he had to help Xing Yuan out of the hospital. When leaving Ye Wenxuan took away a wheelchair. He never liked greedy or cheap people, but time was very tight, so he could only leave a note saying that tomorrow they would be compensated for the cost of the wheelchair. Only then he felt a little more comfortable.

At this moment, he didn’t know that later on there would a surprise waiting for him.

At 6:20 in the morning, the two drove away from the hospital and got back on the highway.


## knicks private hospital’s static pitfall ##

Ye Wenxuan: “Anyone can freely enter and leave this hospital, that’s really too unsafe. Let me upgrade the security level of this ward.”

So he placed down 9980 static traps around the hospital.

That day, all of the British people working or patrolling or visiting or strolling the area were electrocuted.

People: “???”

This group of people crawled away on their knees.

The Knicks private hospital has added another one to the list of strange occurrences.
