Xia Wennan gradually awoke from the depths of darkness.
He couldn’t remember ever sleeping so soundly.
After opening his eyes with great difficulty, the harsh golden sunlight flooded his field of view and forced him to close them once more.
He didn’t reopen his eyes until they’d adjusted to the brightness.

This time around, he was fully conscious of the fact that he was lying in the middle of a snow white room with an equally white rectangular light on the ceiling overhead.
Though it lit up the room, the sunlight streaming in through the window was noticeably brighter.
It was tinged with gold and, unlike the vibrant orange of the morning sun, it felt more like the sun of a scorching afternoon.

Xia Wennan had no idea if it was as hot as it appeared outside.
This room, at least, had air conditioning, and the temperature was just right.
Under the thin blanket, his body felt neither hot nor cold, but as soon as he tried to move a hand, he realised that his entire body was stiff as a corpse, and a throbbing headache followed closely after. 

He couldn’t stifle a low groan from passing through his lips. 

“You’re awake?” A deep male voice laced with undisguised surprise suddenly echoed throughout the room.

Xia Wennan tried to look up to locate the speaker but abandoned the idea after the tiniest effort.
His head was probably injured; he’d barely moved an inch and yet the pain was already excruciating.

Muffled footsteps filled the room, resounding from the corner towards Xia Wennan until they came to a halt at his bedside.
Only then did Xia Wennan register the speaker: a stranger of an Alpha. 

The Alpha looked to be around thirty years old.
He was dressed in a slim-fitting black suit and his short knuckle-length hair was combed back, a few untamed strands falling over his temple.
Like most Alphas, he had a sharp and distinct masculine profile, but his handsomeness lost to none: with prominent, arched brows, pale, thin lips, and especially attractive eyes.
When his gaze was trained on someone, his lashes slightly curled downwards, half-concealing the profound emotions contained in his eyes.  

At this moment, he bent down a little, his beautiful pair of eyes falling on Xia Wennan as he asked, “How are you feeling?”

Xia Wennan furrowed his brows as he stared at the unfamiliar Alpha before him.
“Who are you?”

The Alpha was completely incapable of hiding the look of astonishment on his face.
He eyed Xia Wennan for a moment before straightening up and pressing the call button on the head of the bed, telling the other end, “The patient is awake.”

After hanging up, the Alpha stood at his bedside and silently stared at Xia Wennan.
However, when Xia Wennan revealed a pained expression from trying to get up so abruptly, the Alpha reached out and pressed Xia Wennan’s chest down.
“Don’t move.”

Xia Wennan heaved.
“Is this the hospital? Why am I here?”

The Alpha didn’t respond immediately.
Before Xia Wennan could get an answer, someone opened the door of the hospital room and a line of doctors and nurses rushed in.

A middle-aged male doctor stood at the front of the group.
When he came through the door, Xia Wennan distinctly heard him call out “Mr.

Who is Mr.
Ming? The Alpha in the room? Despite his hurting head, Xia Wennan couldn’t reign in his curiosity. 

The doctor and nurses swiftly surrounded and examined him, while the Alpha at his bedside quietly retreated to a corner. 

Xia Wennan was still in a state of confusion.
He heard the doctor ask him a few questions, yet upon careful consideration, he realised that he had no idea why he was lying here.
He didn’t know what had caused his injuries, and even when the doctor asked him what day it was, there was nothing in his head but haze. 

The middle-aged doctor frowned.

Fortunately, he remembered that his name was Xia Wennan, and that he was a university student. 

“University student?” Everyone in his immediate vicinity froze, including the nurse who was taking his blood pressure.

The middle-aged doctor turned his
