Chapter 100: Rich

"Heh, see, if you knew how trusting I was of you at the time, what are you feeling anxious about? What are you afraid of? You think I'd report you? I really don't have the time for that, nor the need to. After all… it wouldn't benefit me. Zhiyuan, I just want to say that we may have broken up, but we are not enemies. We were together for a long time, and we can't become friends because we've hurt each other in the past. I admit, it was because of Qin Chu's unexpected interference that caused our relationship to fragment, but the things that you did afterward truly disappointed me. So, there won't be any more interactions between us, and we will never get back together. I believe, with your current reputation and status, there will be many amazing girls who are lining up for a chance to date you, and you will be fine without me, right?"

"Of course," Ning Zhiyuan immediately replied.

"Great. I'll forget what happened today, but don't do it again. Please take a left once you exit this room. I won't bother to show you out," Huo Mian ordered strictly.

Ning Zhiyuan held his bruised forehead and turned to leave dejectedly.

Suddenly, he turned back to look at Huo Mian.

Huo Mian immediately became alert…

"Huo Mian, since things have turned out this way, I just want to get an honest answer from you."

"I never loved you," Huo Mian coldly spoke these words.

"Okay, I understand." Ning Zhiyuan smiled bitterly, turning around to leave.

Huo Mian finally let out a sigh of relief...

She never thought that Ning Zhiyuan would suddenly come and cause such a disruption. Thankfully, there was no one else in the clinic, or else she would've been so embarrassed.
Not long after, Huang Yue walked in and. Upon seeing the pen holder on the floor, she exclaimed, "Oh my God, what happened? My poor pen holder."
"Eh… I'm sorry, I accidentally knocked it over when I was grabbing something earlier. I'll buy you a new one."

"Hm...." Huang Yue pursed her lips, looking like she had been bullied.

"I'll even throw in a family bucket from KFC," knowing the nurse's personality, Huo Mian immediately added.

"Okay, deal." Huang Yue immediately perked up.

"On that note… Mian, you've been very generous lately, even treating me to KFC. Tell me, did you get rich recently?"

"No, if I were rich, I would have quit a long time ago."
"Then did you find a rich guy to lean on?" Huang Yue asked secretively.

"Eh…" Huo Mian thought for a bit... Does Qin Chu count as a rich guy? Not really, he was more of a billionaire, right?

So, she shook her head, "Nope, no rich guy to lean on."
"Oh, I got it, your brother's case was resolved, wasn't it? The perpetrator must have paid a lot of money, right?" Huang Yue smiled happily.

"Yeah, that's right. Gosh, you are smart." Huo Mian was afraid of her probing deeper, so she nodded her head vaguely.

But in reality, she didn't get any money from Zhixin's case.

All the other victims did, but she originally wanted to sue them in court and receive payment for the hospital bills.

But she never thought that in the end, thanks to Qin Chu's involvement, the perpetrator's entire family were met with disaster.

He was already locked up, so what more could he give as compensation?

Either way, the fact that Zhixin was okay was already her biggest comfort.
"Oh right, it's lunchtime, let's go to the cafeteria. If we're late, then all the good dishes will be gone."
Not waiting for Huo Mian to reply, Huang Yue dragged her towards the cafeteria in a hurry.
The hospital's cafeteria was on the second-floor basement and could only be accessed by the hospital's staff.
But most doctors didn't eat there since their high incomes allowed them to order delivery.

On the other hand, intern nurses like Huo Mian and Huang Yue had low incomes and few bonuses, and would, therefore, come here to eat.
At lunchtime, the cafeteria would usually be crowded with people, but the overall environment was pretty good.

Huang Yue and Huo Mian found a table with seats facing each other in a corner, and they had just settled in when they heard a female voice yell rudely, "Huo Mian, you bitch! Come out here."
