“He’s temporarily out of the woods.”
“Temporarily… what’s that supposed to mean?” Gao Ran asked distraughtly.
“He’s sustained very serious injuries. The good thing is, he is familiar with anatomy, and the wound he made in his chest won’t kill him. He didn’t stab himself too hard, so there wasn’t too much blood loss, or else he would’ve died from a hemorrhage… We’ve given him a transfusion, but…”
Then, the doctor paused, and Gao Ran immediately knew that whatever came next was going to be bad news.
“But what?” He asked.
“But the gunshot wound he sustained is tricky. We weren’t confident that we could successfully take it out, so we left it in there for now. The bullet is lodged in a really dangerous place, so we will have to take it out sooner or later. He’s still under anesthesia, and we temporarily closed him up. We’re scared of an infection, so we need to go in again to extract that bullet within 48 hours.”
“So, you can’t extract it now?” Gao Ran was a policeman; he knew how dangerous leaving a bullet inside someone’s body was.
The doctor shook his head. “It’s not as easy as you think, the bullet is lodged less than a centimeter away from his heart. If any mistakes were made and we nick a blood vessel during surgery, he will go into a cardiac hemorrhage and die in less than a minute.”
“What can we do then?” Gao Ran’s heart sank upon hearing this.
Feeling deprived, he leaned against the wall of the hallway… his face as pale as paper…
“We’re going to discuss this with Director Wu and decide how we should go on with the surgery, and what the success rate is.” Then, the lead surgeon left with his assistant…
Everyone fell back into silence…
“So, he’s saying that there’s only a small chance that Qin Chu would survive this?” Huo Siqian asked, his expression complicated.
“That can’t be… oh my god, if something happens to him, Huo Mian won’t be able to live on…” Jiang Xiaowei covered her mouth in agony; she leaned on Wei Liao’s shoulder and began sobbing again.
“These doctors are useless, why are they whining like little girls about a bullet retraction? When I was in the military, I was shot too; it really isn’t that big of a deal. He should be transferred over to the military hospital in Jing City, I’m calling my grandpa right now.” Su Yu was Qin Chu’s biggest rival, but he didn’t take advantage of Qin Chu’s current state, especially after he realized how important Qin Chu was to Huo Mian.
“Mr. Su… calm down, he can’t be moved right now. The bullet lodged in Qin Chu is in a very tricky place, and surgery is going to be difficult. With his current state, he won’t be able to make it to Jing City and plus, there’s not enough time either. He needs to receive surgery within 48 hours,” Wei Liao explained to him.
“Then I’m going to tell all the experienced doctors in Jing City to get the f*ck over here.”
Then, Su Yu took out his phone, dialing as he walked. “Hello? I’m in a hurry, I need to talk to my grandpa.”
He immediately called Grandpa Su’s assistant…
Su Yu was going all out for Qin Chu this time…
Gao Ran looked at Su Yu gratefully… For the first time, he didn’t dislike him.
Su Yu was a real man; he didn’t hit a man when he was down or laugh at his misfortunes.
Rather, when Qin Chu needed help, Su Yu was willing to ask his own family to help him…
Huo Mian was incredibly lucky to be liked by a man like him.
Qin Chu was probably proud to have a rival like him.
At least Su Yu was an open book and didn’t stand by and watch as Qin Chu withered away…
While everyone was still worrying over Qin Chu, Huo Siqian quietly walked over to Huo Mian’s room.
He looked at her sleeping figure from the window, his expression filled with heartache and, even a little bit of… tenderness.
Truth be told, aside from Huo Mian, he didn’t care about anyone’s life or death.
He wasn’t interested in Qin Chu, and even hoped that he would never wake up.
That way, he wouldn’t need to put his own plans into action in the future to get rid of him…
The only thing he cared about what Huo Mian’s safety; he was happy, as long as she was alive and by his side.
“Did you tell Huo Mian’s mother what happened?” Jiang Xiaowei asked Gao Ran.
Gao Ran shook his head…
“But I called Uncle Qin.”
As soon as he finished his sentence, they saw Qin Yumin and Mrs. Qin rush up to them.
Behind them was Song Yishi, who was wearing a beige dress…
“Gao Ran, how’s Qin Chu?” Qin Yumin asked him nervously.
