Chapter 112: Nitpicking
Through the moonlight that shined through the window, Huo Mian stared at Qin Chu's handsome face and, for a second, thought that she was dreaming.
She was always a light sleeper, so, she woke up as soon as Qin Chu walked in.
She wanted to prank him and see how he would react, and that was why she opened her eyes suddenly.
After seeing his reaction, she couldn't help herself...
Perhaps it was cold in the room, she held Qin Chu's hand and felt the warmth of his palm.
They laid face to face, quietly staring into each other's eyes...
They said nothing, but it seemed like everything.
They both knew that all they needed was to share this quiet moment in each other's eyes.
Huo Mian's eyes were clear and bright, like the shiniest stars in the sky.
Qin Chu's eyes were deep and misty. One glance and you will be lost in it forever, unable to leave.
For the first time, Qin Chu felt comforted. He held onto Huo Mian's hand tightly and felt his heart fill with happiness.
- Next Morning -
Huo Mian woke up early as usual to make breakfast.
A bowl of vegetable congee, several milk-steamed buns, and a glass of soymilk were ready for Qin Chu as soon as he arrived downstairs.
"We can find a maid, this is too much trouble for you," Qin Chu said as he ate.
"What's troubling about making breakfast? It's not tiring at all. Besides, there's only the two of us, it's inconvenient to have an outsider here. I can do chores when I'm bored and have nothing to do." Huo Mian smiled.
Qin Chu fell silent.
"Um, can I talk to you about something?" Huo Mian asked hesitantly.
"What is it?"
"Can you stop depositing your salary into my bank account?"
"It's too much," Huo Mian complained.
"But you're my wife, who am I supposed to give my salary if not to you?" Qin Chu said as if it was the only logical thing to do.
"You can keep it for yourself."
"You think I need money?" Qin Chu furrowed his brows slightly.
"No, I just think it's too much money. It's not a good idea to keep it with me."
"I think it's a good idea," Qin Chu said stubbornly.
Huo Mian 0, Qin Chu 1.
Qin Chu knew Huo Mian would never ask for money, so it was only natural to deposit his money into her account.
It was a million yuan each month; she would never be able to spend it all, even if she wanted to.
Huo Mian was not someone who was luxurious in nature.
She wanted to tell Qin Chu to stop, but Qin Chu never took her seriously.
She lost the negotiation and decided that she would have to come up with another way.
When they left for work, as usual, Qin Chu drove the Maybach and dropped Huo Mian off five hundred meters away from the hospital's main entrance.
"Huo Mian, you're late," Wu Xiaoxue watched Huo Mian walk in and immediately began scolding her.
"I'm not late," Huo Mian replied as she buckled up her lab coat.
"Do you know how busy the OB/GYN department is? Can't you arrive a little earlier? You're so unprofessional! People like you will only ever be good enough to be a nurse," Wu Xiaoxue cursed, her voice filled with contempt and disdain.
"There's nothing wrong with being a nurse, it's what I want to do." Huo Mian smiled slightly.
"Don't be clever or else I swear I'm going to make your life hell. I'm telling you, I'm very strict. You work under me, and I do not tolerate mistakes. Or else, I will fire you immediately."
"I'll try my best," Huo Mian answered in a nonchalant manner.
"Follow me to the OR! We need to perform a C-section later." Wu Xiaoxue glared at her and began walking towards the OR with a patient's file.
Huo Mian followed Wu Xiaoxue all the way to the OR.
A C-Section sounded scary, but really, it was nothing more than a small surgery. It took less than an hour to complete.
Huo Mian had to admit that Wu Xiaoxue was very skilled.
She sewed up the patient, and the rest was left for Huo Mian to finish.
Huo Mian was out of breath from putting things back in order but Wu Xiaoxue had caught her and began yelling before she even had the chance to have a glass of water, "Why are you here? Did you even clean up the OR?"
"That's not my responsibility, the cleanup crew will have the place sanitized."
"This is the OB/GYN's OR, and you're a part of our department. Shouldn't you go and help? Did you think you were being paid to do nothing? Our hospital doesn't hire useless people."
"Dr. Wu, it's fine if you want to direct things at me, but don't you think you're going a little overboard? Did I dig up your family grave?" Huo Mian couldn't take it anymore and snap back at Wu Xiaoxue coldly.
