“No need, it’s just a small wound.”
Bao Si Qing smiled and swallowed the medicine in a flashy manner.
However, it was clear that he was in a bad state. Such a small movement already caused him to be out of breath.
“Hey brat, give me a hand.” Bao Si Qing said.
“What?” Yun Hua could not understand why.
Bao Si Qing took out a swiss knife and opened it before handing it to Yun Hua, “Disinfect it with the alcohol.”
Yun Hua bit down on her lips but she followed his instructions in the end.
After disinfecting the knife with alcohol, Yun Hua was still worried, “This isn’t enough to disinfect the knife….”
“No worries. We didn’t even have alcohol for disinfection back in the forest.” Bao Si Qing smiled before continuing, “Help me undo the bandage.”
Yun Hua took a deep breath and carefully undid the bandage.
The wound had become infected and even smelled rotten.
This smell was familiar to Yun Hua. In her previous life, when Yun Hua entered the mental hospital, her mother had been stuck in the mental hospital for years already and had developed rashes and pressure sores… The rotten smell had attracted flies that laid eggs, causing her body to be filled with maggots…
Yun Hua was not shocked by the smell but rather the wound.
The wound looked extremely serious!
It seemed as if a bullet had exploded inside and caused significant damage, the flesh in that area were all rotten.
She could barely imagine how painful it would feel!
“It’s fine, scrape the rotten flesh off and bandage up the wound. It’ll grow back in a few days.” Bao Si Qing said casually.
Yun Hua’s eyes turned red in an instant.
“Hey, don’t cry, it’s really not a big deal. When I was in Myanmar, a bullet shot through my shoulder blade and got stuck in it. My entire shoulder started rotten and I did the same thing. Just scrape the rotten flesh off and dig out the bullet. Don’t worry, it’s really not a big deal.”
Both Bao Si Qing’s words and expression made it seem like it was nothing special.
Still, Yun Hua could not hold back her tears.
“Ah, forget it, I’ll do it myself. If you’re afraid, just turn around…” Bao Si Qing said helplessly, “I hate seeing little girls cry.”
Yun Hua took a deep breath and looked at him with determination, “Tell me what I should do.”
Bao Si Qing paused, “Are you sure? You aren’t afraid any more?”
“Stop wasting time!” Yun Hua stared at him in frustration.
Bao Si Qing laughed, “It’s simple, first…”
Under Bao Si Qing’s instruction, Yun Hua started scraping the rotten flesh away with trembling hands.
Even though the wound was not on her body, even though Bao Si Qing did not give her any pressure nor did he express any sign of pain, Yun Hua felt fearful!
She was gentle with the knife.
“You have to scrape away all the rotten the flesh, right down to the living flesh. Look, you have to do it like this until you can see the bright red flesh. As long there is any rotten flesh left, today’s effort would all be wasted. Don’t be afraid, it really doesn’t hurt, don’t worry.”
Yun Hua bit down on her lips, steeling herself, forcing herself to use strength.
While he said that it does not hurt, how could it possibly not hurt?
Is she supposed to ignore his ragged breathing?
Is she supposed to ignore him clenching his fists till his veins are popping?
Or is she supposed to ignore his pale expression and forehead full of sweat?
