Chapter 119: The Abrupt Emergency in the Restaurant
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When they were having their lunch, the conversation Jiang Yao and Zhou Weiqi had revolved around the topics regarding Lu Xingzhi and his group of buddies. Jiang Yao was so intrigued by the subjects that she couldn’t stop laughing. Seeing Jiang Yao’s enjoyment, Zhou Weiqi betrayed all his buddies by telling her their secrets. Who had wet their bed when he was five, who had messed with a bird’s nest and was smeared by birds droppings—he uncovered all their dark secrets that tickled Jiang Yao.
“Jiang Yao, what happens in Nanjiang stays in Nanjiang, deal? Please don’t tell on me when you go to Jindo!” Zhou Weiqi grinned slyly. “They might beat the hell out of me! Frankly, although Chen Xuyao is the youngest among us, he has never been kind to me. He always says that my intelligence is not as high as his too! D*mn!”
Jiang Yao laughed so much that tears streamed from her eyes. She nodded at Zhou Weiqi’s pleads for mercy. However, it was quite a pity that there was nothing much about Lu Xingzhi. Either Zhou Weiqi didn’t want to tell her about Lu Xingzhi’s embarrassing moments, or Lu Xingzhi never did anything foolish ever.
The restaurant served their food very quickly. All the dishes were delivered to the table as they were chatting. Zhou Weiqi urged Jiang Yao to start eating, but he was distracted by a commotion nearby.
“Jiang Yao, something is wrong over there!” He turned and said, “I’m going to check it out, you eat first.”
With that, Zhou Weiqi put down his chopsticks and sprinted to the scene, fascinated. Jiang Yao turned to look at his back and chuckled at his hilarious characteristic, a busybody who was consumed with curiosity.
Jiang Yao, on the other hand, was unconcerned. She turned back and started eating.
Suddenly, there was a loud wail resonating from where the commotion was and someone shouting exasperatedly, “Help! Is there a doctor here? Help! Please call an ambulance!”
At the mention of a doctor needed, Jiang Yao involuntarily dropped her chopsticks and rushed to the scene in a hurry. She pushed through the crowd and chided, “Excuse me! Excuse me!”
The curious bystanders quickly gave way, assuming that a doctor had arrived.
“Doctor! I don’t know what happened to this customer. He just came in the door and suddenly collapsed!” The manager was so anxious that he didn’t realize the doctor that he meant, who was now crouching down to check on the fainted man, was actually a nineteen-year-old girl.
When Jiang Yao learned that the customer was here alone, she knew there was no way for her to ask his relatives or friends about his medical history. She squatted down and observed the man. He was around fifty-something years old, and his eyes were shut tight as if he had lost his consciousness.
Jiang Yao tried to wake the person by patting him briskly and shouting. She stretched her hand to the position of his carotid artery, but the motion terrified her! She couldn’t feel any pulse!
“Weiqi, call an ambulance, hurry!” Jiang Yao turned to the nosy Zhou Weiqi and yelled, then, she turned to the manager who nearly cried out of distress and said, “Ask your staff to disperse these people, they are blocking the air circulation!”
Jiang Yao spoke in such a fast and precise pace that it sounded like a stern command. Zhou Weiqi and the manager quickly nodded and did what she asked them to do.
Then, Jiang Yao turned back to the customer who had fainted and tended to him, ignoring the bustle among the onlookers. She opened his airways by aligning his head into a straight posture, tilting his head back, and unbuttoning his shirt and unbuckling his belt.
