Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
332 Zhai Sheng, the Mr. Nice Guy
The small quad that Qiao Nan stayed at was not near to the quad. Zhai Sheng who was in a panic carried Qiao Nan back home and went dashing to the quad, asking Zhai Hua for help.
If not for Zhai Hua's reminder, he would like to run back to the small quad with Zhai Hua.
They were not training in the army! They did not need to run!
Qiao Nan blushed and rushed to the toilet. Sure enough, the sanitary pad was soaked.
She flushed in embarrassment at the thought of Zhai Hua helping her to change into new pants and sanitary pad. Not even her mother had ever done such things for her.
"Sister Zhai Hua, it's hard on you. I am fine now. It's the Lunar New Year. You should go back home. When you go back, please tell Brother Zhai that I am fine. I apologize for worrying him." Qiao Nan felt much better after changing the sanitary pad.
"I won't tell him. I am still mad at him. You tell him by yourself." Zhai Hua snorted and turned her face to a side in anger.
"What is it that you want to say?" Zhai Sheng came in with a bowl of porridge in his hands. "Nan Nan, since you have woken up, you must be hungry. Have some porridge first. Have you finished the brown sugar water?"
"I am about to finish it." Qiao Nan lowered her head in embarrassment at the sight of Zhai Sheng. She drank the cup of sweet and hot brown sugar water. After finishing the drink, she then realized that something was amiss. "I don't have brown sugar at home."
Qiao Zijin had dysmenorrhea, but she did not.
She started her menses more than a year ago. The dates were accurate, and it would come once a month. Whenever she had her menses, she would not feel painful. Compared with Qiao Zijin, she was very healthy.
Hence, they did not have brown sugar at her house.
"Alright, no more questions. Believe me. You won't want to know how he bought this packet of brown sugar." Zhai Hua seemed to be gloating. She was happy that she was not the only one who was woken up by Zhai Sheng and had her sleep interrupted in the wee hours of Lunar New Year's Eve.
She felt comforted that she was not the only one who was so unlucky.
"B-Brother Zhai bought it?" Qiao Nan wanted to bite off her tongue. If she had known, she would not have asked about the brown sugar.
"Alright, have some of the porridge." Zhai Sheng brought the porridge to Qiao Nan. "I have already contacted the Chinese physician. You can have some sleep after having the porridge. I will bring you to the Chinese physician when it's eight in the morning."
"No need!" Qiao Nan lifted her head. "Actually, it is not that serious. I usually don't find it painful. I don't know what happened today…"
"We must have a look to be on the safe side. Finish the rest of the porridge and have some sleep," Zhai Sheng said assertively, leaving no room for negotiation.
Qiao Nan knitted her eyebrows and finished the porridge. When she was getting ready to sleep, it crossed her mind that she had not brushed her teeth today. Was it okay to sleep?
Women felt especially weak during their first day of menses.
A few hours ago, Qiao Nan had a big fright. Moreover, she just had her food and she felt more comfortable now. Hence, she fell asleep in no time.
"Okay, Nan Nan is asleep. I will go back now. Today is the first day of the Lunar New Year. It is inappropriate for you to stay here. What if our parents ask about you? What Nan Nan said is very true. Mom doesn't like her, and Dad will not give us an easy time as well. Even Grandpa who can't be easily persuaded hasn't seen Nan Nan yet, but you went ahead to tell Nan Nan that you want to be engaged to her! If it wasn't for the fact that Nan Nan has her menses, I have reasons to suspect that she fainted as she was scared out of wits by you."
Nan Nan was still very young, yet Zhai Sheng told her that he wanted to marry her. Every woman would be scared stiff.
If anyone dared to tell her this, she would give him a tight slap on the face.
Zhai Hua knew that Zhai Sheng was serious about Qiao Nan, and he really intended to marry her. However, Zhai Hua felt that they could consider marriage in three to four years' time. Nan Nan was still young. She was like a flower that had yet to bloom. She did not understand the affairs of the heart and she did not even get to know a few more boys either.
Was Qiao Nan lucky or unlucky to have met such a domineering and overbearing Zhai Sheng?
"I will leave Mom and Dad to you." Given Nan Nan's situation, he could not leave. He would not be at ease.
"What?! Why must I do this?" Zhai Sheng gave Zhai Hua a glare, telling her to speak softly. She lowered her voice and said, "This is your business. What does it have to do with me?"
"Because you're my elder sister."
"Then, let me address you as my elder brother."
"Sure, go ahead. Remember to help me out when Mom and Dad ask about me," Zhai Sheng said matter-of-factly.
"I have to hand it to you." Zhai Hua gave him a thumbs-up. "I am so sleepy. I have to go back to sleep. As for Nan Nan, you must know your limits. She is still a child!" She almost wanted to tell Zhai Sheng to let Qiao Nan go. She was still so young.
Previously, when Zhai Hua was pulled to the small quad and saw the blood on Qiao Nan's pants, she had almost thought that it was Zhai Sheng who did that to Qiao Nan.
"I know what to do." Zhai Sheng shot Zhai Hua a cold stare. Nan Nan was still very young. He cherished her more than anyone.
"Crap." Zhai Hua was upset. She did not have a good night's sleep and had done Zhai Sheng such a big favor, yet he gave her such a disdainful look. She could not be bothered to say anything else. She would get herself out of his sight!
Qiao Nan only woke up when it was morning.
It was too late when Qiao Nan realized that something did not feel right. She felt with her hands and realized that her pants were stained again.
"What's wrong?" As soon as Zhai Sheng heard some movements in the room, he, who had breakfast ready, opened the door and came in. "Why is there blood on your hand, you…" Zhai Sheng stopped in mid-sentence. He understood what was going on.
Qiao Nan could imagine how red her face was.
Qiao Nan silently pulled the blanket and covered half of her face. "Brother Zhai, you haven't gone back? Brother Zhai, can you go out for a while…"
"Sure." Zhai Sheng stood up and left Qiao Nan's room.
Qiao Nan jumped out of bed as soon as Zhai Sheng closed the door. This was the most special Lunar New Year that she had in her two lifetimes. Why was it that she would be in such an embarrassing situation whenever Brother Zhai was around?
Qiao Nan flushed red when she saw the stains on the bed sheets. She silently took out her under** and sanitary pad and ran to the toilet to change out of her soiled clothes.
When Qiao Nan was changing the under**, she noticed that there was a thermos flask in the toilet, and it was filled with hot water.
Without a doubt, Zhai Sheng prepared this for Qiao Nan and she knew what it was meant for.
