Chapter 281: Correcting the Toxic Environment (3)
Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
“It was… fine.” Although Deputy Director Guo didn’t want to admit the cruel truth, he couldn’t lie in front of so many experts.
“Thank you, Deputy Director.” Huo Mian smiled at him.
Director Wu waved. “Sit down, Huo Mian.”
Huo Mian nodded and sat down…
Director Wu added many things to the discussion before ending the meeting an hour later.
When Huo Mian was walking out, Director Wu’s assistant stopped her, “Wait, Huo Mian, the director wants to talk to you.”
The people in the meeting room left slowly, and soon, only Huo Mian and Director Wu were left in the room.
“Huo Mian, you did well today.”
“No, I’m just stating facts.” Huo Mian was a little shy.
“I’ll make improvements based on your suggestions. Actually… South Side should’ve been fixed long ago, it was just that at every single meeting, people beat around the bushes and nobody wanted to take the lead. Sadly, I never had an excuse to implement any new policies. You speaking out today made me feel much better. You’re right, doctors should act like doctors, and they can’t work in a foul environment.”
“Eh, Director, don’t listen to my blabber, I’m just stating my opinions, haha.”
“No, your opinions were very useful and I learned a lot from them. There’s only one thing that I regret.”
“What is it?” Huo Mian was a little confused.
“You have such a great gift, why don’t you try for a medical degree while you’re still young? If you start now, you’ll definitely find success in the medical field. Last week, the British Royal Hospital gave us an exchange opportunity. It’s a 6-month ophthalmology discussion and exchange program. I really want you to go, what do you think?”
“Director Wu, I’m not familiar in the field of ophthalmology, haha.”
“You don’t have to hide it from me, I know. Before Xiaoxue and Ning Zhiyuan got married, I got somebody to investigate into him. You wrote all of his ophthalmology papers for him, is that correct?”
“Uh…” Being exposed made Huo Mian quite uncomfortable.
“Sorry, Director Wu. I shouldn’t have lied to you for him.”
“No, you didn’t do anything wrong. I only feel that your talent is wasted by merely being a nurse here at South Side. Even if you succeed and choose to leave the hospital, that’s still fine by me. I still want to hone and train you.”
“Director Wu, thank you for the opportunity, but… I don’t want to go to England. I think that my current occupation is great. It’s fulfilling, engaging, and meaningful. I believe that in life, one’s fame or riches don’t equate success. As long as I set goals and do my job, life is meaningful. For example, ordinary sanitation workers clean the streets day after day, but it’s because of them that our city is clean. We can’t say that they’re wasted doing that, we can only say that people have their own goals in life. As for me, I want a quiet and peaceful life, one that I can spend with my family. I want to work at a job I enjoy and retire when the time comes. I don’t have big dreams, and I can be happy living a plain life.”
“I finally see why Dr. Qin treats you so well… Anyways, you’re an excellent girl, I believe that you’ll always be happy like you are now.”
Director Wu’s words were not direct, but someone as smart as him had guessed Huo Mian and Qin Chu’s relationship already.
“Thank you for your blessing.”
After saying farewell to Director Wu and leaving the conference room, Huo Mian’s mood was quite joyous. She sincerely hoped that South Side could change for the better.
It could be a green recuperation center, not a yellow and tainted one…
If she remembered right, this was the third time Director Wu talked about sending her abroad to study.
To others, the opportunity may have been once in a lifetime, but she rejected it so nonchalantly.
In fact, to Huo Mian, the biggest happiness came from being alongside Qin Chu. She already had no other ambitions.
When she got home from work, Qin Chu had just gotten back as well and was making dinner.
Huo Mian walked in and embraced Qin Chu’s waist from the back in a teasing manner.
“Mr. Qin, thanks for your hard work.”
“Are you hungry?” Qin Chu turned around. He tilted Huo Mian’s face up gently and asked.
