It took Huo Mian around thirty minutes to drive to Wu Xiaoxue's home.
She lived in a high-end residential area; apparently, the Wus paid for the apartment and dcor.
After Huo Mian knocked, Wu Xiaoxue took a while to open the door.
Huo Mian's face heart sank when she saw her
Wu Xiaoxue's face was as pale as a ghost, and there were obvious blood stains on her white sleep dress.
"What's wrong?" Huo Mian held onto the weak Wu Xiaoxue.
"My stomach isn't feeling well, and my whole body's numb. Can you take me to South Side?"
"South Side? Why not go to the First Hospital, the medical equipment there is better." Huo Mian asked in surprise.
Wu Xiaoxue shook her head. "I don't want my coworkers to find out about what happened, please, Huo Mian."
After seeing Wu Xiaoxue's pleading expression, Huo Mian finally agreed. She helped her downstairs and drove her to South Side.
The equipment at South Side was advanced as well, but the medical team wasn't as good as that of the First Hospital. After all, it was a place for recovery rather than surgery.
"It's late, and none of the good doctors in the OB/GYN department are at work. If you don't mind, I can examine you, is that alright?"
"Yes, please." Wu Xiaoxue nodded; she never once doubted Huo Mian's medical skills.
Huo Mian monitored Wu Xiaoxue's condition on their way over, and she was a little worried.
She knew that Wu Xiaoxue was someone full of pride, so she didn't have many friends. She would also never call others for help at a time like this, not even her parents.
But where was her husband, Ning Zhiyuan? Wasn't he supposed to be by her side at a time like this?
"Dr. Wu, your husband"
"He's partying at the club with He Man," Wu Xiaoxue hugged her belly and said in pain.
Huo Mian didn't respond
"He Man just sent me a photo of them, it's obvious she's doing it on purpose. Haha, too bad I don't care anymore. I won't be the idiot that I used to be." Then, Wu Xiaoxue searched through her phone and showed Huo Mian a photo.
Huo Mian glanced at it it was indeed He Man and Ning Zhiyuan. They were dancing intimately.
"Dr. Wu, should I tell Director Wu?" concerned, Huo Mian asked.
"Don't, if my uncle finds out, so will my parents. I don't want them to worry about me anymore. Back then, they didn't want me to marry Ning Zhiyuan, but I did anyway. I chose the road that I wanted to go down, so I'm going to see it through," Wu Xiaoxue said as she gritted her teeth.
Wu Xiaoxue was a typical Leo dominant, aggressive, and needed to be #1 in everything. Living like that must be tiring.
At this moment, Huo Mian no longer felt biased against Wu Xiaoxue. Instead, she was sympathetic
Seeing Wu Xiaoxue so depressed, Huo Mian didn't say anything else
- South Side Recuperation Center -
"Head Nurse, why are you here?" The on-call nurses were a little surprised to see Huo Mian.
"My friend needs to be examined. You guys can go back to work." Then, Huo Mian helped Wu Xiaoxue up to the top floor, where the OB/GYN Department was.
Huo Mian started off by giving her an ultrasound
Then, she drew her blood and sent it to the lab. She asked a colleague to rush the results.
Finally, she asked Wu Xiaoxue to lie in bed. She listened to the fetal heartbeat and did an EKG.
"How is it, Huo Mian?"
"I think you might've been too agitated and emotionally unstable. Your blood pressure and heart rate are slightly high, and your baby is in a bit of distress and her breathing frequency is off. Plus, you were bleeding I think you might be having a miscarriage." Huo Mian felt bad about it, but she had to tell Wu Xiaoxue.
Wu Xiaoxue's face immediately turned as white as paper upon hearing this
