One of the instructors from the Maths Department immediately shouted, “Ren Qian! What are you doing? Come back!”
Ren Qian did not stop.
Ning Li immediately understood what was going on and stood up to head over as well.
The baby-faced instructor was also stunned. Only managing to let out a “Hey” and before he could stop her, Ning Li had already left the team.
Both of them were fairly fast, and they soon arrived at the team in the Outer Court.
Because someone had fainted, everyone had crowded around. Many of the girls looked nervous and worried.
The two instructors were in the middle. One of them frowned and shouted, “Get out of the way! We need to ventilate!” The other seemed to be preparing to carry the person on his back.
But one person was even faster.
Ren Qian quickly went forward and saw He Xiaochen lying on the ground. Her face was pale and her eyes were tightly shut.
He frowned and immediately went forward.
Only then did the two instructors notice his arrival.
“Hey, who are you–”
Ren Qian quickly said, “Reporting, instructor. I’m her high school classmate.”
The two instructors were dumbfounded.
This was a university. Who cared if they were high school classmates?
However, Ren Qian moved quickly and had already gone over to help her.
Almost at the same time, Ning Li also arrived.
She placed her hand on He Xiaochen’s head.
“She has heatstroke. She needs to be sent to the infirmary.”
Ren Qian nodded and carried He Xiaochen bridal style.
The sports field was connected to the stadium, and there was a temporary infirmary inside.
The two people cooperated very well. While everyone was still in a daze, they had already taken He Xiaochen to the infirmary.
Ning Li followed behind Ren Qian.
One of the instructors came back to his senses.
“Eh? Which department are you from? How can you–”
Ning Li turned around.
“Instructor, saving people is more important.”
Her voice was calm, but her aura made it obvious that there was no room for discussion.
When the instructor met her cold gaze, he immediately choked.
The other instructor seemed to understand.
“Alright, send them to the infirmary first! I’ll go with you!”
The commotion on the field had attracted the attention of many people.
Everyone looked over when they noticed that there was a commotion.
When the various instructors saw this, they began to move.
“What are you looking at? Are you all that free? Get up and continue practicing!”
In the infirmary.
He Xiaochen slowly woke up, but her mind was still in a daze.
A familiar voice sounded.
She turned her head and opened her mouth but she could feel that her voice was still a little hoarse.
“… Ning Li?”
Ning Li handed her a glass of water:
“How do you feel?”
He Xiaochen sat up, drank a mouthful of water, and nodded in a daze.
“Much better… How did I…”
“You’re in shock from heatstroke. Fortunately, you were brought here in time. The doctor said that you should rest well and avoid strenuous exercise for some time.”
Seeing that she was fine, Ning Li also heaved a sigh of relief.
He Xiaochen let out an “Oh.” Then, she thought of something.
“Who brought me here?”
Ning Li said, “Ren Qian.”
He Xiaochen’s eyes widened slightly.
After she had fainted, she could not remember anything.
She thought that the instructor had sent her here, but she had not expected–
But wasn’t Ren Qian from the Maths Department?
She looked left and right.
Ning Li explained, “After he carried you over and made sure that you were alright, he went back.”
He Xiaochen’s face instantly turned red.
“… M,m,m,m,m,m,m,m… me?”
Ning Li replied.
He Xiaochen also seemed to feel that she behaving a little unusually.
She forced herself to remain calm and asked, “Then, where is he? I.. I’ll go and thank him.”
The corners of Ning Li’s lips curled up.
“There’s no need to rush. It should be quite easy to find him today.”
“He is currently standing under the national flag stage as a punishment.”
By evening time, the military training ended.
Only two to three people were left on the field.
When He Xiaochen and Ning Li arrived here, they saw a figure standing at the national flag stage.
The Instructor of the Maths Department was standing in front of Ren Qian with his hands behind his back, saying something in a stern tone.
Leaving the team without permission and disobeying orders was a big taboo.
After about ten minutes, the instructor looked at the time and gave him one last warning before leaving.
Ren Qian moved his stiff body and when he turned his head, he spotted He Xiaochen and Ning Li.
“Yo, Big Brother, you’re finally awake?”
He looked relaxed, as if he was not currently being punished or reprimanded.
He Xiaochen walked over, feeling both embarrassed and guilty.
“… I’m, I’m sorry that I dragged you into this.”
Ren Qian clicked his tongue and joked, “Your instructor’s reaction speed isn’t good. He wasn’t even as fast as me.”
He Xiaochen hesitated.
“I heard that you were disqualified as a flag bearer?”
Every department would choose a flag bearer to undergo specialized training.
The Maths Department had chosen Ren Qian.
The reason he had been able to make it over to her so quickly today was because he had been undergoing special training at that time.
Ren Qian let out an “Ah” as if he did not really care.
“I threw down the flag at that time.”
How could he not be disqualified?
His tone was too casual, as if he did not take it to heart at all. He Xiaochen did not know how to take it.
Of course, she knew that this matter was not that simple.
She lowered her head slightly. She wanted to say something, but she did not know where to start.
Ren Qian suddenly raised his chin and smiled.
“Sigh, fortunately, you’re only 1.6 meters tall. If you were any taller, I might not have been able to carry you.”
He Xiaochen immediately bristled.
“Who are you calling fat?”
Ren Qian spread his hands. “Your comprehension ability is as outstanding as always.”
He Xiaochen was furious.
“Perhaps your instructor has punished you too lightly!
“Is that not right?”
Ren Qian nodded his head in agreement.
“If I don’t train more, what will happen if I really can’t carry you next time?”
He Xiaochen widened her eyes.
“You, you, you… Who said that there’ll be a next time?”
Ren Qian laughed.
“I guess not.”
Ning Li had stood some distance away and did not follow him.
She had seen He Xiaochen walk over with an apologetic look on her face, but she had come back looking angry.
“This is too much! How could such a person even exist?”
She complained to Ning Li, “Ning Li, your Second Brother wouldn’t be like this, right?!”
Ning Li looked at her blushing face and fell silent for a moment.
Although she did not know exactly what the two of them had said, He Xiaochen was a straightforward person. Her thoughts were written all over her face.
She could probably guess…
Her phone vibrated.
She took it out and looked at it. It was a text from Lu Huaiyu.
[ Want to eat candy? ]
Ning Li, “…”
She silently put away her phone.
It was not easy to say such things.
