Chapter 242: Unplanned Encounter
Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
“Huo Mian… why are you here?”
“I was transferred here a long time ago, and I no longer work at the First Hospital. Why are you here?”
“My dad is suffering from cerebral thrombosis due to excessive drinking. He has been recovering in the hospital for a while, and he wants to stay here. They say that this place is good for recovery.”
“Yes, that’s right. We’re very careful with the food and medication we give to our patients here, and the overall surroundings are nice as well. There’s also plenty of acclaimed specialists. It’s definitely much better here than at home.”
“Yes, but you guys don’t seem to have any rooms left over at the neurosurgery department.” Embarrassed, Wei Dong scratched his head.
Ever since he failed to lend Huo Mian money last time, he thought of himself as less of a man. He felt humiliated that he couldn’t deliver what he promised.
So, he didn’t even speak much anymore in the WeChat group, and after Huo Mian and Qin Chu left the group, he felt much better.
However, Zhu Lingling knew of all of this, and she would occasionally make fun of him.
He never expected to see Huo Mian here; he only saw her on the news a while back.
However, he knew that with Qin Chu around, nothing would happen to Huo Mian.
That was the truth; thanks to Qin Chu, Huo Mian was able to dodge every bullet that came her way.
“Oh, I see. Wait here for a second, I’ll go ask.” After Huo Mian spoke, she went back to the on-call booth to call the head nurse.
The head nurse said that there were rooms in the neurosurgery department, but it was based on the patient’s identity and status.
Normally, the hospital would use “no vacancy” as an excuse to get rid of those without any power or background.
“Head Nurse, could you help me out? This is my classmate’s dad, and he is suffering from cerebral thrombosis. He wants to stay here for recovery, and it’s pretty hard on the old man.”
“Okay, I’ll call the Neurosurgery Department for you.”
Luckily, the head nurse was a nice person, and shortly afterward, she called Huo Mian back and told her that she got a room for her.
“Wei Dong, I helped you reserve room 9. You can take your father over there right away.”
“Really? Thanks, Huo Mian.”
“Not at all, go. His condition is dire, so call me anytime if you need anything. I’ll be here in the Orthopedics Department.
Wei Dong was filled with gratitude because Huo Mian had helped his father find a room, but, at the same time, he felt even more embarrassed to face her.
At noon, before Huo Mian could head over to the cafeteria for lunch, she was still reading patients’ charts when Wei Dong walked over with food.
“I bought you lunch.”
“You didn’t have to do this.” Huo Mian raised her head and smiled.
“Yes, I do. Plus, it’s not anything expensive. I remember that back in high school, you used to like dim sum, so I bought you some when I was out getting lunch for dad.”
“Thanks.” Huo Mian smiled and took the bento box.
“Huo Mian, I’m truly sorry about what happened before.”
“Before… oh, it’s fine, it’s all in the past. You don’t need to apologize, it’s nothing.”
The truth was, Huo Mian never hated Wei Dong. She even felt thankful and lucky that Wei Dong didn’t lend her the money.
If it weren’t for him, she would never have ended up with Qin Chu… In the end, Wei Dong helped her reunite with Qin Chu.
“But my feelings for you are real, and all I can say is that… I’m not lucky enough to marry my goddess.” Wei Dong felt slightly regretful.
If his opponent wasn’t Qin Chu, or if Qin Chu wasn’t so powerful, he wouldn’t have let her go without a fight.
“Goddess? Don’t put me on a pedestal, I’m just a little nurse.”
Just then, Wei Dong’s phone rang; after saying goodbye to Huo Mian, he walked out while on the phone.
Huo Mian opened the bento box and ate the dim sum with great appetite…
“You’re not that pretty, but you sure have a way with men.” Coincidentally, Su Yu saw what just happened.
Even though he couldn’t hear what they said, he saw that man give food to Huo Mian and Huo Mian smiling back at him.
The truth was, he felt slight hints of jealousy…
Huo Mian raised her head and looked at Su Yu; she spoke impolitely, “You’re from the stud farm yourself, so do you really have the right to judge others without any shame?”
“You little brat, what did you just call me?” Su Yu was pissed.
