Chapter 103: Impulse
"That's fine, he isn't my type."
"Your standards really are high, Mian. Tell me what your type is, I can introduce you to someone I know."
"No thanks, you don't even have a boyfriend yourself," said Huo Mian helplessly.
"That's because I'm picky. Oh right, if you don't like him, then could you give me his contact information? I'm talking about the one from the Radiology Department."
"Uhm, sure." After she spoke, Huo Mian pushed all of the flowers aside and handed a bunch of phone numbers to Huang Yue.
"It's all here. Pick whichever one you like."
"Thanks, Big Sis Mian," said Huang Yue, her face filled with joy.
Just then, the door to the emergency room opened, and the head nurse entered, looking serious.
"Huo Mian, come with me."
"Oh no, the old hag must have found out about what happened. Be careful!" Huang Yue said with sympathy.
Huo Mian felt goosebumps. She never thought that the dispute she and He Man caused in the staff cafeteria would create such a scene.
It seemed like even the head nurse had found out about it.
The head nurse hated these sorts of drama the most, especially if personal matters got in the way of professionalism.
A lecture seemed inevitable.
- In the corridor around the corner of the stairs -
The head nurse called Huo Mian off to the side.
"Do you know why I asked to see you?" asked the head nurse.
Huo Mian nodded with guilt.
"Since you know why, then I'll speak bluntly. I heard that you've broken up with that ophthalmology doctor, right?"
"So the woman you lashed out at in the cafeteria, is she the other woman?" asked the head nurse.
"I didn't lash out at her, Head Nurse. He Man started it. I was only eating my meal quietly, I really was."
"Not bad, good for you." Smiled the Head Nurse as she patted Huo Mian's shoulder.
Huo Mian froze...
What was happening?
"Good job, you're making our department proud by letting them know that they can't just pick on us. We're not soft tomatoes that people can just bully around."
"Mhm." Huo Mian was speechless.
"There's also one more thing I wanted to talk to you about."
"Go ahead, Head Nurse," Huo Mian said with respect. She looked like she was prepared for any task that her superior might give her.
"Well, you're single now. I just happen to have a distant cousin who is working in our city. He's a great guy and isn't too far from your age, but most importantly, he also works in the medical field. He's in forensics. I think you guys would be great together, so I've planned for the two of you to meet next week."
"Uhm… Head Nurse, are you possibly trying to introduce me to a boyfriend?"
"Yes, the little nurses in our hospital aren't so reliable. You are all about the same age, but you're the only one who is mature and low-key, so I think you would be perfect for my cousin. Don't worry about his family situation. He has a house and a car, and his parents are both doing business down south. So if you guys get married, it'll just be the two of you. It will be great."
"But… Head Nurse, I… Someone else has already introduced me to a potential boyfriend."
"Already?" The head nurse was clearly surprised.
Huo Mian didn't dare to say that she was married. She worried that it might scare the head nurse, so instead, she lied that someone had already introduced her to someone.
"Yes, so I can't double-dip. Thank you for the kind offer."
"It's not a problem. You're still unmarried, we'll prepare you on all fronts, and let you pick amongst the best. It's decided, I'll plan for you guys to meet next week. Okay, I will go now."
"Uhm… Head Nurse." No matter how Huo Mian called, the head nurse refused to listen.
However, the problem was that she was already married. Was it really okay for her to be set up for a date?
If that person found out, he'll probably strangle her...
After 24 hours of the silent treatment, both of them refused to call or text the other. It was a weird feeling.
Huo Mian was slightly disappointed when she saw how quiet her phone was. It seemed like she wasn't so important to Qin Chu after all.
At this lonely thought, Huo Mian got off work. After gathering her belongings, she went back home.
It was already very late on her way back because she worked overtime until 10 PM.
She purposely looked up when she arrived at the building they lived in and noticed that the 16th floor was still dark. Qin Chu hadn't returned yet either.
After she reached the 16th floor, she gently took out her keys to open the door, and then stepped in.
Before she could even stand still, someone suddenly pushed her onto the wall, and then her lips were smothered shut by the same person.
At that moment, she was so scared that she almost stopped breathing.
