Episode 68

(Xiaowei’s Wedding (9)

“I don’t want to ask Chief Huo to do me any favors, I want to go through regular procedures,” Chen Jie opened her mouth and replied weakly.

“Gosh, stop being such an idiot… once you go through regular procedures, you’ll be weeded out! The intern nurses are all waiting in line to send gifts to HR, so you’ll never get your chance! Don’t you want to continue working at South Side?” the intern doctor asked.

“I do, but…” Chen Jie seemed to be struggling, and the doctor added, “Go ask Chief Huo, I know she’ll help you.”

“I can’t, I don’t want to cause her any trouble.” Chen Jie shook her head and left, unwilling to continue with the conversation.

Huo Mian suddenly realized that she might have focused too much on her work and overlooked her employees. Therefore, she went into her office, printed out an application, and filled it out.

During the lunch break, she asked Chen Jie into her office.

“Chief Huo, you were looking for me?” Although Huo Mian was only 4 years older than her, she still respected this chief very much. In Chen Jie’s eyes, Huo Mian was a skilled and hardworking doctor who held great prestige at South Side.

“Sit down, Jie.” Huo Mian waved her hand, gesturing for her to sit.


“Here, this is for you. I filled it out for you, I hope it’ll help.” Huo Mian handed her a piece of paper.

Chen Jie took one look at it and was immediately dumbfounded – it was a permanent position application form, and Huo Mian had written her a very long recommendation.

Huo Mian said a lot of good things about Chen Jie. She didn’t over-exaggerate her skills and almost everything she wrote was the truth.

“Chief, this is…” Chen Jie was flattered, and Huo Mian said, “Something happened a while back, so I ended up taking a few weeks off. If I didn’t suddenly remember this today, I would’ve held you up. You’ve been here for 6 months, and you started off as Chief Li’s assistant, and she kept telling me how good you were at your job. After I was transferred into our department, you’ve been of great help as well, so of course, I’m willing to help you get a permanent position.”

“Chief Huo, don’t say that, you overestimated me… I’ve always done what I’m supposed to do, I’m really not that great.”

Huo Mian could tell that Chen Jie wasn’t saying that on purpose because her expression was extremely sincere…

She was an intern nurse who had a dream. She didn’t want to take shortcuts; rather, she wanted to succeed through hard work.

Huo Mian seemed to see herself in Chen Jie…

The good thing was, Huo Mian was lucky enough to receive a permanent position, take medical exams, and become a doctor in a short amount of time. Then, the hospital even made an exception and promoted her to the department chief, making her the youngest chief in C City. Huo Mian knew that she couldn’t be greedy; she had everything she could ever want and knew how hard it was for her to become who she is today. Therefore, Huo Mian was determined to give young people like Chen Jie a chance.

“Jie, you don’t have to be afraid… I know you can do it. Although our hospital only keeps a few intern nurses each year, I’m certain that you’ll become one of them.”

“Department Chief Huo, I…”

“Let me know if you ever need anything. I’m your supervisor, so I’m obligated to take care of you.” Huo Mian liked Chen Jie. The latter was smart, easy to like, attentive to details and extremely efficient.

“No, I don’t, Chief Huo. I’m doing great, I really am.”

Chen Jie’s family was probably one of the poorest out of all the employees at South Side, but she never used that to gain others’ empathy, because she thought that winning that way wasn’t something to be proud of. That’s why she kept hanging in there, no matter how hard things got…

As Huo Mian talked to Chen Jie, her phone suddenly began ringing…

She picked up her phone and saw an unfamiliar number, calling from Jing City.

After a few more rings, a confused Huo Mian picked up, “Hello?”

“Is this Huo Mian?”

“Yes, it is.”

“I’m Feng Liqiao,” a stern voice came from the other end of her phone, and Huo Mian suddenly remembered who this person was, “Hi, Dr. Feng.”

“How is your husband doing?”

“He’s doing great, thank you for asking,” Huo Mian smiled.

“Huo Mian, I’m not a person who beats around the bushes, so this phone call is going to be short and sweet. On behalf of the Military General Hospital and as the chief of surgery, I am sincerely inviting you to join our team over here in Jing City. We are in dire need of skilled and brave surgeons like you.”

Huo Mian was dumbstruck as she held her phone against her ear… was Dr. Feng trying to poach her? Did he want her to go work for him at the Military General Hospital in Jing City?
