SEVERN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(I Hate How Rational You Are (4)
“Mian, you don’t know what happened, it’s not as simple as you think.”
“Oh? Did something happen between you two that I don’t know about?” Huo Mian pretended to be surprised.
“Ahem… of course not, don’t overthink it.”
“Okay, well I’ve done everything I can, and you can decide whether you want to unblock him. However… don’t listen to what Lin Xuejiao said, she’s not what she seems to be and she might have said all that on purpose.”
After Huo Mian reminded Zhu Lingling, she finally relaxed. Then, she gathered her things and headed to her third nightshift of the week.
It was the afternoon rush hour, so traffic was jammed. Huo Mian played some music in her car.
She was enjoying the music when she suddenly felt like someone was looking at her.
Then, she noticed that a black Lamborghini was parked right next to her car…
Aside from Su Yu, who else could its driver be?
But this time, Su Yu didn’t purposely create this chance encounter; he was going to lunch with some clients, and the restaurant was nearby.
However, he didn’t expect to see Huo Mian while waiting for a red light; this was truly a pleasant surprise.
Therefore, his gaze never left her…
It wasn’t until the lights changed and the cars behind him began honking that Su Yu was drawn back to reality…
Afterward, he glanced back at where Huo Mian was, but she was already gone.
It was already past dinner time when she arrived at South Side. She was wondering if she should order delivery when a nurse suddenly came up to her and said in a hurry, “Head Nurse, Deputy Director Guo asked you to go to his office.”
Huo Mian nodded; then, she changed into her white uniform, put on her glasses, and headed up to the top floor, where the deputy director’s office was.
She knocked before entering, and to her surprise, she saw Huo Siqian.
He was wearing a beige T-shirt and a Cartier bangle.
He seemed to be discussing something with the deputy director…
“Hey, look who we have here?” Huo Siqian smiled when he saw Huo Mian.
Huo Mian ignored them and went up to Deputy Director Guo, “You were looking for me?”
“Hey, Huo, come and sit down.”
“Deputy Director, I haven’t had dinner yet, could you let me know why you were looking for me?”
Huo Mian didn’t want to waste time with them…
“Don’t worry about dinner, we haven’t eaten either, we can have dinner together in a bit. Sit down, listen to what President Huo is offering to our hospital as a reward system.”
“A reward system for our hospital? Since when does an outsider have the right to do that?” Huo Mian faintly asked.
“Hey, don’t say that. President Huo isn’t an outsider, he’s our hospital’s biggest sponsor.”
Huo Mian, “…”
Fine, the deputy director loved money, and she was at a loss for words.
“Mian, I established an emergency care foundation for your hospital, so in the future, when less fortunate people come looking for emergency treatment, the hospital will be able to help them. The Huo Foundation will take care of the bills.”
“Are you trying to be Robin Hood now?” Huo Mian looked at Huo Siqian and asked.
“No no no, I’m not, that’ll be too tiring. I was hoping that you could become a board member of the Huo Foundation and help deal with this stuff. I told the deputy director to double your salary since you’ll have to work your shifts and manage the foundation at the same time.”
The truth was, Huo Mian wanted to say no. However, what Huo Siqian was doing was quite meaningful.
A lot of the local residents, thinking that this place was a hospital, came looking for emergency care without knowing that they were only a recuperation center.
In the end, the hospital refused to treat them and had to send them away. If Huo Siqian was really willing to offer the money, they would be able to hire some on-call doctors for their emergency room. They might be able to save a lot of lives.
Huo Mian was not about to decline an opportunity like this, even though she didn’t know what Huo Siqian’s ulterior motive was.
Plus, this was a really good deed…
“Huo Mian, what do you think?” Deputy Director Guo asked her.
