"This is really?"
Not waiting for the woman to finish her explanation, Huo Mian interrupted her impatiently, "Don't play this cheap trick on me. Let's make a deal. You tell me who they are, and I will find a way to get your husband out. Then this will all be over."
Seeing that Huo Mian was firm on this, the woman got up and said something in her ear. Huo Mian nodded upon hearing what she said.
Then she said, towards all the press, "Dear friends from the press, thank you for your continuous close attention on this issue. The cause was simple. I just wanted to save people. However, it all went in a direction that has deviated from my original intent. I apologize to Director Wu for the negative impact our hospital had received because of me. I would not have come this far if I didn't have his trust and support. At the same time, I am even more grateful to my family for their support when I was at rock bottom and for helping me find the truth and prove my innocence. Anyways, please don't follow this matter further. Thank you."
Then, Huo Mian turned around and went into the hospital. The incident officially came to an end.
What Huo Mian said in front of the hospital was later broadcasted on every major channel.
Qin Chu was going over financial receipts when he heard Huo Mian's voice. He slowly raised his head and looked at the TV.
Assistant Yang met Huo Mian once, so he could roughly guess that the nurse who was in trouble this time was his boss's girlfriend.
That's why he purposely turned on the TV when Huo Mian was live.
It surely caught Qin Chu's attention. His eyes became gentle and tender when he saw Huo Mian express gratitude towards her family.
She was finally willing to admit his existence?
"Sir, my sister-in-law is getting married the day after tomorrow. Can I have the morning off? I will be back by lunch," Assistant Yang asked while the president was in a good mood.
"You can take the entire day off."
"Thank you, sir!" Assistant Yang was ecstatic. He knew it would be best to bring up a request when his boss was in a good mood.
- In the director's office -
Wu Xiaoxue said indignantly, "Uncle, this matter has already had a negative impact on the hospital.You have to fire Huo Mian, or else it is likely to happen again."
"I know what to do. You don't need to tell me over and over again."
"Uncle, I really don't understand. Huo Mian is just a little nurse. Why are you protecting her so much? Did she bribe you?"
Wu Xiaoxue was angry, and she started to speak without carefully choosing her words.
Director Wu's face grew a shade darker, "Xiaoxue, don't be ridiculous. This is the hospital, not your home. I am Director Wu here, not your uncle."
"I'm not giving in. I want you to fire Huo Mian."
"There's no way I'll fire Huo Mian. If there's nothing else, you can leave now." He waved his hand, gesturing for Wu Xiaoxue to leave.
Wu Xiaoxue was furious. She slammed the door and stormed out as a protest against her uncle's decision.
The director's assistant probed, "Director, why didn't you tell Miss Wu your concern? You know, the power behind Huo Mian."
"It would only add to the drama. I better not tell her."
Admiring Huo Mian's talent was only one of the reasons why Director Wu kept defending her.
The main reason was still Qin Chu
His idiot niece kept hooting about firing Huo Mian, but he would be the idiot if he did so.
It was peaceful when Huo Mian arrived back to the hospital. The OB/GYN department was as busy as it had always been.
After work, Huo Mian didn't go straight home but instead went to the address that the pregnant patient gave her.
As expected, Huo Mian saw a woman's back. She was dressed provocatively, and her hips bounced when she walked.
Huo Mian secretly followed her into the corridor of an apartment and sped up to stop her.
"Hi, He Man, long time no see." Huo Mian smiled.
"Huo Mian, what are you doing here?" He Man was a little scared.
