Chapter 490: Impersonator
Jiang Yao, dragging Lu Xingzhi along, promptly left the hospital.
She was still furious when they got in the car.
“What’s wrong with these people!” Jiang Yao rolled her eyes. “Can’t the Divine Doctor be a woman? Can’t she be a young woman? Who said so? Huh!”
“Let’s go do some grocery shopping at the farmer’s market. I will cook dinner for you tonight.” Lu Xingzhi fastened the seatbelt for her and rubbed her head. “There’s nothing to get angry about. We’re not seeing them anymore.”
“Even if they kneel and beg, I am never going to operate on Du Chen!” Jiang Yao exclaimed.
Jiang Yao intended to follow through with her promise and do her best during Du Chen’s operation. Not only out of a doctor’s conscience, she did receive the Du family’s contribution, and she was adamant that a promise made was a promise kept.
Ironically, she was doubted by the very people she wanted to help.
Back at the hospital, Mrs. Du and Mrs. Zhou’s wailing attracted plenty of attention.
“Uncle, we need Lu Xingzhi to return our five hundred thousand dollars!” That was all Zhou Ning cared about. “They wanted to scam our money!”
The Assistant Director heard the commotion and came over to check it out. Upon entering, he saw the absence of Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao, and the chaos that ensued. “What’s going on? Is your son’s disability incurable? Even the Divine Doctor gave up?”
“Divine Doctor? Lu Xingzhi brought an impersonator over!” Mrs. Zhou yelled. “She was a young lady, how is that the Divine Doctor?”
“Even if the Divine Doctor is a woman, how can she be so youthful?” Zhou Ning added. “When we heard of the news about the Divine Doctor, we thought that he should be someone like you, a little older, with more experience.”
“And you… you kicked them… out? The Assistant Director stammered; he was at a loss for words.
“Assistant Director, I saw Master Lu and his companion leave in a rage.” A doctor nearby whispered.
“What use is it to keep the impersonator here? A waste of time!” Du Shihua retorted. He would have sought revenge on Lu Xingzhi if not for the consequences waiting.
The Assistant Director could not believe his ears. He looked at everyone in the room and sighed, “Such a pity. The Divine Doctor is a young woman. If she is not able to mend Du Chen’s leg, I don’t think anyone else can. I thought Du Chen was pretty fortunate to actually meet the Divine Doctor, who would’ve thought you people booted them out.”
He paused, and continued, “I took a glance at the lady beside Master Lu, it really is the Divine Doctor. I’ve seen her before, unless my eyes fail me, that’s her.”
He looked at Du Chen, shook his head resignedly, and left the office. There was nothing he could do as what happened was out of the hospital’s jurisdiction.
