( Huo Mian, What are You Really Trying to Do? (2)

“Don’t worry, I won’t try to kill myself by jumping into the ocean, only cowards would do something like that!” Huo Mian shouted as she headed into the ocean, running until the seawater covered her knees.

Then, she yelled towards the ocean, as loud as she could, “Huo Mian, you have to stay strong!”

Su Yu glanced at her. Then, he walked up to Huo Mian and shouted beside her, “You have to stay strong, Huo Mian!”

Then, the two of them looked at each other and smiled…

After some venting, she had a quick bite of lunch with Su Yu before heading back to GK and once again burying herself in some more work…

That afternoon, Huo Mian drove to the First Hospital.

– Director Wu’s office –

“Mian, come and sit.” Director Wu treated Huo Mian like a close family member; although he never taught her anything personally, he had always given her opportunities and chances to grow.

Huo Mian was constantly grateful to meet a mentor like Director Wu; not all individuals were lucky enough to meet someone who appreciated their talents.

“Director Wu.” Huo Mian walked over to the couch wearing a crisp black suit and slowly sat down.

Director Wu’s assistant than poured them some tea.

Director Wu walked up to Huo Mian and handed her a teacup. “Here, try this. I heard you liked Longjing Tea from West Lake?”

“Yeah, it’s really aromatic and sweet, I enjoy green tea.” Huo Mian smiled as she took a small sip.

“What do you think?”

“It’s good…”

“I bought some a few days ago while passing by the West Lake on a business trip. I heard authentic Longjing tea leaves are nourished by Longquan water.”

“Yes… all good things are polished and created with care.” Huo Mian nodded, and Director Wu said amicably, “So… you will only become your best self after experiencing the hardships in life.”

“Director Wu…” Huo Mian was touched by what he said.

“Huo Mian… so many things have happened to you recently… Not only do you have to worry about Qin Chu and take care of the company and your in-laws, you also have to endure public opinion… Normal girls would have broken down a long time ago.”

“I’ve broken down as well,” Huo Mian laughed.

“But you picked yourself back up again… I know you might feel despair right now, but you shouldn’t give up. There’s an old saying, ‘place someone on a field of death and he will fight to live’, so I know the two of you will survive this. You’ll be met with good luck after surviving extreme fortunes. Once you’ve experienced the worst, the best will be waiting for you.”

“Haha, Director Wu, I never knew that you had such a poetic side!”

“Gosh, how can you still be joking with me right now?” Director Wu felt embarrassed by what Huo Mian said; he continued, “Our ancestors make a lot of valid points. Heavens will only bestow great missions to humans after they’ve experienced great challenges… Huo Mian, I always thought you’re an extraordinary individual. Encountering so much adversity is both your luck and misery – you’re forced to face so much suffering at such a young age, but at the same time, no one else has what you have…”

“Yeah, to me, having Qin Chu feels like I’ve won the entire world.” Huo Mian smiled faintly. The setting sun shone into Director Wu’s office, beaming a streak of light onto her face, adding color to her smiling lips and making her look extremely beautiful.

“What are your plans for your father-in-law?” Director Wu changed the subject, and Huo Mian fell silent…

“I took a look at his chart, he’s in serious condition… you can’t push back the operation any longer.”

“Qin Chu was supposed to perform my father-in-law’s surgery, but he’s been in jail this entire time so we didn’t have any other choice but to push it back. I don’t know how much more time he has, Qin Chu’s second trial is in seven days,” Huo Mian said as she was struggling too.

“He might not be able to wait for seven days. What if Dr. Liu performed the surgery?”

“That would be fine too… But it’s a high-risk operation and we’re really worried…” Huo Mian expressed her true thoughts.

“What if… you do the surgery?” Director Wu probed, and Huo Mian froze for a second. “Me?”
