"I'm going on a business trip to Taipei. The flight is tomorrow night, do you want to go together?
"Me? I can't, I have to go to work."
"Take a leave. We'll be back in two or three days."
"I don't want to go, I'm really not in the mood and won't be able to enjoy myself." Huo Mian shook her head; she didn't want to go and ruin his mood.
The hospital was in chaos. If she went on a vacation, what would happen if the patient's family were to create a scene at the OB/GYN department or pick on Huang Yue?
She didn't want to leave them with her mess to clean up.
"No worries." Seeing that she didn't want to go, Qin Chu didn't push further.
He looked down at his watch it was 8 PM.
"Are you hungry? Do you want to get something to eat?"
Huo Mian shook her head
"Did something happen at the hospital?" Qin Chu couldn't help but ask as he noticed how lifeless Huo Mian was.
"Nothing happened. I think I'm just not used to the new department I'm in."
Huo Mian didn't tell Qin Chu what happened at the hospital because she didn't want to worry him.
He was already exhausted from working at GK, day in and day out.
"Alright then, you should go to bed. I'll be organizing documents in the study."
Then, Huo Mian went upstairs, took a shower, and climbed into bed
Suddenly, her phone began to ring
It was an unfamiliar number; Huo Mian hesitated for a while before picking up.
"Is this Huo Mian?" A man's voice sounded on the other end. The voice was somewhat familiar.
"Yes, it is. Who am I speaking with?"
"My name is Lin Mingyu."
"Lin Mingyu?" Huo Mian was a little confused. She didn't remember knowing someone with this name.
"I'm the forensics guy you went out with last time," he emphasized.
"Oh, it's you." Huo Mian remembered. It was that guy the head nurse introduced her to last time.
"What are you doing?" Lin Mingyu asked Huo Mian out of the blue.
"I'm about to sleep."
"This early? I was going to ask you out to dinner." Lin Mingyu was a little disappointed.
"No, but thank you for your offer."
"Um What's your WeChat account? Can I add you?" Lin Mingyu asked.
"I don't really use WeChat," Huo Mian politely rejected him once again.
"Oh, I see. In that case, I'll call you another time."
After hanging up, Huo Mian realized that she never gave him her phone number.
He probably got it from the head nurse.
The hospital was in shambles, she didn't have time for other people right now.
The next morning, Qin Chu woke up early to make toast and warm milk.
However, Huo Mian didn't see him when she woke up. She took a few bites and went to work.
As soon as she arrived at her department, Huang Yue dragged her off to the side. In a hushed tone, she said, "Mian, the director is back."
"Isn't the director at an out-of-town conference?" Huo Mian was confused.
"He was, but he came back when he heard what happened at the hospital. I heard that he's meeting the patient's family today. Then, he'll decide on how to handle this."
Huo Mian felt guilty upon hearing this
If she hadn't decided to operate on that patient, the hospital and Director Wu wouldn't be in this mess.
At lunch, when Huo Mian and Huang Yue went to the cafeteria, they once again became the hot topic among the other employees.
There, she also saw her nemesis Wu Xiaoxue.
"Miss Arrogant, I hope you're happy. The entire hospital has erupted because of you. My uncle had to cancel his conference to come back and clean up your mess," Wu Xiaoxue snapped; for some reason, every time she saw Huo Mian, she would become agitated.
"I'm really sorry about what happened," Huo Mian replied calmly.
"What's the point in apologizing now? You shouldn't have done it in the first place. I don't understand, you're just an intern nurse. Who gave you the courage to do something like this? Does your family own the hospital or something?"
