Truthfully speaking, Huo Mian never thought that Dr. Feng would call her. After all, he was such a prestigious man with such a sought-after status; it was a command sent straight from Su Yu’s grandfather.
Truth be told, Huo Mian didn’t really want to be involved with the military. The waters ran too deep in an environment like that, so when Dr. Feng called, she was more than stunned.
“Dr. Feng, I…” At that moment, Huo Mian didn’t know what to say.
“Huo Mian, listen to me. I don’t know if Old Wu told you or not, but I am no longer accepting apprentices.” The ‘Old Wu’ Dr. Feng mentioned was none other than Director Wu Zhongxing of the First Hospital and South Side.
“Um… yes he did, Director Wu said that you are a top-notch expert in our country.”
“No need to flatter me. I once told Wu that I am longer accepting apprentices, but you… truly stunned me. Your husband’s surgery wasn’t the first one of its caliber to be conducted domestically, but your skilled techniques and calm demeanor truly impressed me. Honestly, I never imagined meeting someone as skilled as you in such a small city, not to mention your tender age. I am truly shocked. Someone like you shouldn’t stay at South Side. It’s a waste of talent. Come to Jing City and be my apprentice. It takes many years to refine a skill, and I will make sure that you become the best surgeon in the entire country.” Dr. Feng was usually a solemn old man. His willingness to talk so much proved just how much he wanted Huo Mian to join his team.
“Dr. Feng, I thank you for your recognition. I know that there are probably millions of people who dream to be your apprentice, but I…” Huo Mian paused.
“What are you worried about?” Dr. Feng asked.
“I’m not worried… I’m just not sure I can give up my life here. My family and my friends are here and so is my husband and his career. I am very attached to C City. Although it’s a small city, nowhere as grand as Jing City, I want to stay here for the rest of my life,” Huo Mian said earnestly.
“Don’t you want to chase your dreams?” Dr. Feng furrowed his brows as if he was disappointed by Huo Mian’s lack of ambition.
“My dream is to become an outstanding doctor. I feel like I’ve already accomplished that. Another dream of mine is to spend the rest of my life with the person I love. I’ve accomplished that as well,” Huo Mian replied with a smile.
“But don’t you want to go higher and do better?” Dr. Feng asked, unwilling to give up.
Huo Mian smiled once more through the phone. “I’ve never been an ambitious woman. I don’t have a lot of dreams, I just want a life of peace and happiness. Thank you for your kind offer, but I am definitely not leaving here.”
In the end, Huo Mian decided to reject Dr. Feng’s invitation with a smile.
“Are you not going to think about it more?” Dr. Feng asked again, unwilling to give up. As far as he was concerned, Huo Mian was truly a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of talent. She was not even 25 years old, graduated from a third-rate medical school and studied nursing, yet she was so skilled in ophthalmology, neurosurgery, neurology, gynecology, orthopedics, and many more specialties. Plus, she could single-handedly conduct a bullet-removal surgery, one of the hardest surgeries that existed. These stunning facts left the usually stoic Dr. Feng in awe. He decided to make an exception for Huo Mian. If it were anyone else, the offer would’ve sent them jumping in joy, but Huo Mian wasn’t just anyone else, she was truly one-of-a-kind.
“I don’t think it’s right for me. I apologize for disappointing you,” Huo Mian said.
“No problem, if you ever change your mind, just give me a call,” Dr. Feng insisted before hanging up.
“Alright.” Huo Mian smiled.
After she hung up the phone, Huo Mian immediately sent Qin Chu a WeChat message.
“Honey, I’m going to Jing City,” she teased.
