“Why does it matter to you if I’m Norman Bethune or Hua Tuo (TL note: famous doctor in Chinese history)? I think you’re sticking your nose in others’ business.”
“I am speaking out of the kindness of my heart, and I’m trying to teach you what the scope of your responsibilities is.”
“I am also speaking out of the kindness of my heart, and I’m trying to teach you what personal integrity is.”
He was once again defeated in a verbal battle against Huo Mian, but Su Yu had already gotten used to it.
He seemed to think of his daily quarrel with Huo Mian as an interesting aspect of life; if they did not quarrel, he would feel like something was missing from his life.
Huo Mian looked at Su Yu’s stats; then, she placed the medication on the tray and said, “Take your medication on time. You are recovering very well, and it looks like you can be discharged in about one week.”
“That fast?” Su Yu was a little surprised.
“Why? You don’t want to leave?”
“Of course I want to leave. This place is simply suffocating, I can’t drink or pick up any girls here. I’m so tired of this place.”
“That’s great, please leave as soon as possible. I don’t want to see you again, I’m so tired of taking care of you.”
After speaking, Huo Mian immediately turned around and left.
Su Yu pondered for a moment. There was only one more week until his discharge, how fast time flew.
But why was he feeling slightly sad?
When she heard that her son was going to be discharged soon, Mrs. Su brought over a few maids to prepare a sumptuous seafood meal for her son.
Even the bodyguards and nurses were able to get a little taste of a truly luxurious seafood feast.
“Huo Mian, why didn’t you go? Everyone was invited. Mrs. Su is so nice; she is beautiful and caring. She brought a bunch of 2 kg Australian lobsters braised, cooked in soups, and even seasoned with garlic; it was so luxurious. The seafood porridge was delicious too,” one of the nurses, Tingting, said excitedly.
“I didn’t have an appetite.” Huo Mian did not rest well last night so she was still very tired.
In the room, Su Yu looked around and pretended to not care. “Where is Huo Mian?”
“Oh, she’s tired so she is resting at the on-call booth. Should I call her over, Mr. Su?”
“No, it’s okay, she’s saving me money if she doesn’t eat,” Su Yu said, but his words did not match his thoughts.
– Midnight –
Perhaps it was because he ate too much seafood, but Su Yu felt a little drowsy.
His entire body felt a bit chilly…
“Turn on the heater,” he ordered.
One of the bodyguards immediately came in to turn on the heater. However, ten minutes later, Su Yu felt even colder.
“Turn it up to high,” Su Yu said impatiently.
“Sir, I’ve turned it to 30 degrees Celsius, its already at its highest,” the bodyguard replied carefully.
“Then why is it still so cold?” Su Yu pulled his blankets and tightly wrapped himself up in them.
The bodyguard saw that something wasn’t right, so he quickly ran towards the on-call station.
Huo Mian was on duty today. She was bored so she was watching the popular Korean drama, Descendants of the Sun.
Like all the other woman, she was in love with the drama’s male lead, Song Joong-ki…
Just as she was immersed in the show, she suddenly saw the bodyguard running over, “Please take a look at Mr. Su, he doesn’t look well.”
Huo Mian stood up and followed the bodyguard to room one.
Even though it was early autumn and the nights were a bit colder, it was still too much for Su Yu to turn the heater up to 30 degrees and wrap himself up in blankets.
It was rare for him to not be in the mood to quarrel with Huo Mian. Huo Mian walked over and placed her hand on his forehead.
His temperature was shockingly hot…
“He has a fever.”
“What? What should we do then?”
“It’s okay, leave it to me.” After speaking, Huo Mian took out a thermometer from her white coat.
“Open your mouth.”
“Why?” Su Yu dazedly opened his eyes and saw Huo Mian’s pretty face.
“So I can see what your body temperature is at.”
“No,” Su Yu refused immediately. It would be embarrassing for a person his age to have his temperature measured by someone else.
Huo Mian did not wait for him to speak. She grabbed his chin and pushed the thermometer into his mouth.
Just as Su Yu was about to spit it out… Huo Mian, with her hands crossed in front of her chest, threatened fiercely, “Don’t spit it out! Hold onto it or I’ll give you an injection again.”
