1404 It Was Not Like He Was Seeing Her In These Clothes For The First Time

However, it was also Long Xuan’s palm strike that had forced the venom out of his body.

Therefore, he was only in a coma now because of internal injuries.

After hearing the physician’s diagnosis, Lin Qingyuan exhaled in relief. “That’s good to hear. Thank you!”

Long Xuan narrowed his eyes in displeasure at the sight of her smiling face.

“Why? Do you care about him that much?” His words were dripping with sarcasm.

Lin Qingyuan stared at him in bewilderment and, after a moment, said, “Chen Xuping got himself into this state because he was trying to save me. It’s only reasonable that I show some concern for him.” Remembering what Bai He had said in the suburbs, she added, “Don’t you think I should show concern for him, Hubby?”

Long Xuan, who had been seething with jealousy, was stunned when he heard her nickname for him. Narrowing his eyes, he asked, “What did you call me?”

Lin Qingyuan fidgeted bashfully. The nickname had slipped out of her mouth unknowingly just now; it would be embarrassing to say it again in front of him.

However, when she met the man’s predatory gaze, her lips moved and she said softly, “Hubby.”

Long Xuan’s face softened, and the gloom in his heart vanished. Taking her hand, he looked her over and frowned in disapproval when he noticed that she was dressed in men’s clothes. “What on earth are you wearing?”

Lin Qingyuan immediately lowered her head and gave her outfit a quick scan.

Was there anything wrong with her clothes?

She had dressed like this during their previous visit to Peony Pavilion too. It was not like he was seeing her in these clothes for the first time.

“What’s wrong with what I’m wearing?” She pouted in annoyance.

“It’s all dirty—you don’t look like a proper lady at all,” Long Xuan chided her. Before she could throw a fit, he ordered Bai He to look after Chen Xuping, then led Lin Qingyuan out of the medical hall by the hand. “We need to get you changed at once.”

Before Lin Qingyuan could protest, he pulled her into the nearest clothing store.

Then, he swiftly picked out an entire set of clothes and asked the worker to wrap them up.

Lin Qingyuan wanted to object. She had not even tried them on—what if they did not fit her?

However, one look at the man’s determined face was enough to stop her from voicing her doubt despite the dissatisfaction in her heart.

How could he buy her clothes without letting her pick them out herself or try them on? What a domineering man!

After that, Long Xuan chose an inn, booked a guest room, and ordered the server to bring them hot water.

“Don’t let your foot get wet—just give it a simple wipe. I’ll be outside guarding the door.” Long Xuan stuffed the cloth bundle containing the new clothes into Lin Qingyuan’s arms and pushed her into the room.

Lin Qingyuan was still in a daze as she watched the door close behind him.

She was astonished by his unusual behavior.

For the first time, he did not follow her into the room.

However, the thought that he was outside guarding the door put her at ease.

After unwrapping the new clothes, she undressed herself, wrung a towel out, and wiped herself from head to toe. Then, she changed into the clothes Long Xuan bought for her.

It was a light purple gown. Although it was quite formal, the modern design added a touch of friskiness to it.

What surprised her the most was how well it fitted her—even more so than the specially tailored gowns that she usually ordered.

She could not help wondering privately how Long Xuan knew her measurements so well.

After getting dressed, she opened the door and walked out.

Long Xuan was leaning against the banister outside, his face impassive. He seemed to be thinking about something.

When he heard the door open behind him, he turned around nonchalantly.

Amazement flashed through his eyes at the sight of the woman standing in the doorway,
