“Why can’t I be?” Wu Xiaoxue was wearing a black dress with a red beanie. Her pregnant belly was showing, just a little bit.
“Oh, can I help you?” Huo Mian had a lot of work to do, so she wasn’t in the mood to bicker with Wu Xiaoxue.
“I passed by a dim sum place on my way and bought you some afternoon tea.”
Then, Wu Xiaoxue put a takeout bag on her desk…
Huo Mian glanced at it – there sure was a lot of food. There were desserts, macarons, and milk tea.
Did Wu Xiaoxue get up from the wrong side of the bed this morning?
“Why are you doing this?” Distracted, Huo Mian put down the pen in her hand.
“I know when to be grateful,” Wu Xiaoxue answered simply.
Huo Mian immediately understood what she was talking about. Truth be told, she never thought that Wu Xiaoxue was one that knew how to be grateful.
Huo Mian thought that Wu Xiaoxue would tell her to mind her own business.
“You don’t have to, I would’ve saved anyone,” Huo Mian said nonchalantly.
“Huo Mian, I envy you. If I were you, I definitely wouldn’t have helped my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend. Plus, I picked on you so much back then.”
“That’s why you’re not me.” Huo Mian smiled.
“My uncle is right, you’re an extraordinary woman. I’ve never admired anyone in my life, but you’ve truly surprised me. If it weren’t for you, my baby wouldn’t still be safely in here,” Wu Xiaoxue said as she stroked her belly.
“That’s why you need to be careful when driving. You need to remember that you’re pregnant.”
“I will. Anyways… thank you. You’re Ning Zhiyuan’s ex, and I will continue to hate you. But, that’s a different matter. You saved me, and I’m not an ungrateful bitch. I owe you one. If you need a favor in the future, I promise I will pay it up.”
“That’s not necessary, I wasn’t thinking about getting you to pay me back when I was saving you.”
“I hate that you act so high and mighty all the time like you’re a savior or something. You have this ‘I can save the world, but the world does not have to thank me for it’ complex. But still, I finally understand why you’re so successful as a human being.”
Huo Mian didn’t respond, because she was suddenly at a loss for words…
“I heard you were promoted.”
“Do a good job. I hope that we can have a surgical competition in the OR one day. Everyone’s been saying that your skills are advanced, but I’m not convinced. I’ll wait until you become a doctor; meanwhile, I’ll be working on my own craft.”
Then, before Huo Mian could say anything else, Wu Xiaoxue turned around and left…
Huo Mian stared at the afternoon tea she brought her with mixed emotions…
Wu Xiaoxue was indeed a conflicted person; she wouldn’t become gentle and grateful all of a sudden.
However, she could tell right from wrong, and she knew that it was Huo Mian who saved her. That was probably enough.
She wasn’t expecting Wu Xiaoxue to pay retributions to her. After all, she did save Wu Xiaoxue mostly because of Director Wu.
Plus, she was Ning Zhiyuan’s wife. No matter what happened in the past, she couldn’t ignore two lives like they were strangers.
After another night shift, ten luxury cars appeared outside South Side.
They were all Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porches, and other “can’t afford” cars.
There was also a limited-edition Rolls-Royce; apparently, that was Mrs. Su’s car.
Everyone knew that Su Yu was being discharged today.
The welcoming ceremony was extremely over-the-top. Su Yu was feeling much better; he no longer needed help walking and left his room on his own.
He walked slowly, hoping that he would be able to see Huo Mian send him off. Maybe she would say something to him.
However, after looking around, he failed to see Huo Mian anywhere.
“Young Master, Miss Huo is at the morning meeting,” one of his bodyguards reminded him.
“You talk too much; do you still want your job?” Su Yu cursed at him angrily.
“Yes.” The bodyguard immediately shut up.
“It’s time, everyone’s waiting for you at the hotel. Let’s go, Yu.” Mrs. Su smiled gently.
Reluctant to leave, Su Yu looked back one last time, but Huo Mian wasn’t there.
It wasn’t until all the cars left that Huo Mian came downstairs.
“Head Nurse, Young Master Su was discharged,” Nannan said thoughtlessly.
“That’s a good thing, that bastard’s finally gone.”
“Hm… aren’t you going to miss him… even a little bit?” Nannan looked at Huo Mian in disbelief.
