“I was transferred to another unit and had been busy with surgeries for the past few days. I have some time off this evening, so we can have dinner together.” Tan Bengbeng’s calm voice spoke from the other side of the line.
“I’ll look for you after work!”
After settling on a meeting place with Tan Bengbeng, Nian Xiaomu hung up the phone.
She looked through the information on the computer again, but the smile on her face was now gone.
Using the information that Ye Mingmin had given her, Nian Xiaomu gave Shangxin’s manager a call. However, when the manager heard what the call was about, he replied that Shangxin was not interested and then hung up the phone.
When she tried to call back, the call was sent directly to voicemail.
She took the information back to clarify with Ye Mingmin, but Ye Mingmin simply told her that she needed to think of a solution on her own since no one had Shangxin’s personal cell phone number and all the liaising should be done with the manager.
When it was time to clock out from work, Nian Xiaomu was still sitting at her desk. She was at her wits’ end.
“Aren’t you leaving yet, Nian Xiaomu?” a colleague asked as she walked past.
Hearing this, Nian Xiaomu returned to her senses and realized that it was almost time to meet Tan Bengbeng.
She grabbed her bag, said goodbye to the colleagues in the department, and dashed out of the Yu Corporation building.
She hailed a taxi and gave the driver the address of a small restaurant.
“Darling!” Once she got out of the car, Nian Xiaomu ran toward the person waiting for her at the entrance of the restaurant.
She gave Tan Bengbeng a hug and a peck on the face, then said, “I missed you so much. I called you so many times, yet you did not return a single call! You’re too heartless!
In contrast to her passionate show of affection, Tan Bengbeng’s reaction was a lot colder and indifferent.
After being kissed, she calmly took out a piece of tissue paper from her jacket and cleaned her face.
“There are over 600 different types of bacteria in a human being’s saliva. It also carries many agents of diseases and might infect other people”
Nian Xiaomu: “!!!”
She was not going to listen to Tang Bengbeng’s ranting!
Tan Bengbeng’s occupational habit was so maniacal that it drove people up the wall.
It was only because Nian Xiaomu had high tolerance that she could survive being around Tan Bengbeng for such a long time.
“Shall we go in to eat now?” Nian Xiaomu stopped Tang Bengbeng short in the middle of her speech and dragged her into the restaurant.
The place had been selected by Tan Bengbeng.
The restaurant wasn’t very big, but it was quiet and exquisite. The decoration also had a sentimental tone to it.
Just like Tan Bengbeng’s style.
At the hospital, she was frighteningly professional.
Outside the hospital, she was frighteningly silent.
Sometimes, when the two of them sat together for an entire day, Tan Bengbeng could go without speaking a single word.
She would simply listen to Nian Xiaomu talk nonstop
Other people might think that she was aloof, but only Nian Xiaomu knew that she was the kindest doctor in the whole world!
“Two servings of Set A, a cup of coffee, and a cup of milk.” Tan Bengbeng was about to return the menu to the service staff after ordering food for the both of them when Nian Xiaomu held on to her arm.
With a disgruntled face, Nian Xiaomu groused, “Bengbeng, only little children drink milk at mealtimes. I’m already an adult!”
As she spoke, she lifted her chest to prove that her size was indeed that of an adult’s.
Tan Bengbeng threw a glance at Nian Xiaomu’s chest, raised her eyebrow, and asked, “So?”
“I want coffee too,” Nian Xiaomu replied with a grin.
The next moment, Tan Bengbeng told the service staff, “Get her a glass of lemon juice.”
Nian Xiaomu: “!!!”
“From a doctor’s professional point of view, you cannot drink coffee too often. You have only just recovered, so drinks that contain stimulants are bad for your current state of health”
She was at it again
Nian Xiaomu immediately regained her composure!
She quickly turned to the service staff and requested, “Please get me a glass of lemon juice. Thank you!”
