My Left Eye Can See Ghosts - Chapter 36

He didn’t stop at all and carried me all the way to the infirmary.
It was hundreds of meters from the teaching block to the infirmary, and he also ran down from the rooftop. When we reached the infirmary, it took him some time to regain his breath again.
The injury on my knee was not serious at all, but Su Rui told the school doctor that I was frightened.
It was true that I was shocked, but I had already recovered from it.
The school doctor treated my knee injury and said that I could go back to class.
I stood up, and Su Rui came up to help me.
“It’s fine. I can walk.”
At the same time, the class teacher slowly entered the infirmary and panted, “I asked you to run slower and pay attention to your safety. How can you not watch out for yourself? You are the class monitor, and you should always set a good example for others…”
As soon as she walked in, she gave Su Rui a safety lecture for more than ten minutes. Su Rui nodded his head repeatedly so many times throughout the class teacher’s lecture that his posture became hunched.
I sat back on the chair and let the class teacher talk. It felt endless.
The class teacher spoke a lot of nonsense, and she was like the female version of Tang Sangzang . I guess she must not have a boyfriend, but she is also worried about our safety, so that’s why she’s talking about it repeatedly.
I didn’t attend class that afternoon as the class teacher allowed me to return to the dormitory to rest.
My blindfold was still in the classroom and I felt embarrassed getting it so I went straight back to the dormitory.
When I walked past the window of the dormitory supervisor aunty’s room, she stared at me with her eyes wide, making me feel a little nervous.
So I sped up my pace and all the way to my room, and found Ming Si lying on my bed. He was lying down, crossed legged while flipping through a best-selling novel that I had borrowed from the library two weeks ago.
Ever since I borrowed the book, I wasn’t even able to flip open the cover as Xu Zixi tormented me every day throughout the whole night. It made me drowsy in class during the day, so of course I wouldn’t have the time to read any extracurricular books.
“Elder brother,” I called out to him.
He moved the book away from his face, glanced at me with one eye, and made a soft sound of acknowledgement before focusing on the book again.
I walked towards him and motioned for him to move to the side.
I was tired and wanted to lie down.
He laid still as if he was reading the book intently.
I laid down, turned my body, and squeezed him to the side.
He closed the book, moved himself in, and tilted his body slightly. He squinted at me with his head propped up on one hand. The corner of his lips raised to form a wicked smile.
“Your male classmate seems to be very worried about you.”
Here we go again.
Su Rui is just my classmate. He is just more warm-hearted.
“Is that student interested in you?” He said slowly, the flickering light in his pupils dimmed down.
I pursed my lower lip and told him bluntly, “It’s not what you think.”
He laughed, “Really? Then let me throw another girl from the rooftop to see if he will also be so nervous.”
His words left me speechless. He always looked unconcerned but was still so jealous.
Seeing that I was silent, he stopped talking.
He laid down and stretched out an arm to hug me. I didn’t resist.
I like being held by him like this, but this bed is too small, and we have to squeeze.
I closed my eyes to take a short nap, but at that moment, I heard the sound of high heels coming from the corridor. The sound stopped at the door of my room, and then the door was gently pushed open with a loud creak.
I sat up abruptly. For a second I forgot that I was sleeping on a bunk bed, and my head knocked against the upper bunk bed. It was so painful but I could only grit my teeth and did not make any sound.
“Sixi, how are you feeling now?” The person walked in and closed the door gently.
It was the class teacher.
I could feel that it was her just by listening to the sound of her footsteps.
She walked toward me with a benevolent look on her face.
I moved aside to give her a seat.
She sat down next to me, sighed deeply, and then slowly said, “Sixi, our school is a key middle school. Needless to say, our teaching staff is also very competent. For example, Teacher Wu who is a top scholar in psychology…”
When she mentioned psychology, I knew what she was going to say next.
She probably thinks that I am a bit mentally disturbed and is asking me to go to Teacher Wu for psychological counseling.
I can go any way. After all, I went mad in front of all my classmates. I have to sacrifice myself to appease the restless hearts of my classmates.
“So, during your lunch break during these two weeks, you should go to the infirmary to find Teacher Wu. I have already told him.”
I nodded, “Alright.”
The class teacher patted me on the shoulder, got up, and told me to rest well before leaving.
As soon as she left the dormitory, Ming Si said with a displeased expression, “Are you going to have psychological counseling?”
“You have no psychological problems.”
“Everyone thinks that I have one, so I have to put on an act in case I cause trouble again. That time, I could have even been expelled from school.”
What I said was serious. It was the 21st century, and science was advocated. All kinds of superstitions were intolerable in educational institutions.
He didn’t speak anymore. He reached out his hand and pulled me into his arms, hugged me, and continued to sleep.
I couldn’t help but shudder being so close to his cold body.
He opened his eyes, looked at me, and was silent for a while before asking, “Not used to it?”
I shook my head.
He let go of me, rolled over, and got out of the bed. He picked up the book he was reading, opened it, sat down by the bed very casually, and muttered, “You sleep, I won’t bother you.”
I was afraid that he thought I was disgusted with him, and even took the initiative to tug at the corner of his clothes, but he insisted, “Sleep well, stop fooling around.”
I retracted my hand resignedly and closed my eyes.
Xu Zixi was still on the rooftop, and she couldn’t move because of the ghost subduing talisman. Ming Si was also by my side, making me think that there had never been another moment in my life that made me feel more secure than now.
I fell asleep peacefully. This time I slept until Cheng Fengfeng and the others came back from evening self-study.
It wqas Bai Xiaomeng’s voice that woke me up, but when I opened my eyes, Ming Si was no longer there.
Seeing me wake up, Cheng Fengfeng handed me my blindfold and said, “Here. I got it back for you.”
I thanked her and got out of bed.
I took the washbasin from under my bed and wanted to wash myself up.
Cheng Fengfeng beckoned to me, “Wait for me. Let’s go together.”
I was slightly stunned.
It was rare that she was willing to walk with me, so I was naturally happy to go together.
Every night after evening self-study, the dormitory building was always very noisy.
Girls liked to talk in groupps, and the sound of laughter and gossip layered of each other.
When we arrived in the washroom, Cheng Fengfeng asked me while collecting water in the basin, “Are you going to go to Teacher Wu for psychological counseling?”
“How do you know?” I was taken aback.
She smiled at me, “I can still find out this kind of rumor.”
Most likely, the whole school will know about me receiving psychological counseling by the next three days.
Anyway, the school was doing this to reassure the students.
