Chapter 121: A Bet
"Rejected? Not exactly. I just think that our academic and family backgrounds are far too different. We're not compatible at all, so there's no need for us to go on anymore."
"But I don't mind."
"But I mind." Huo Mian smiled.
Small dimples appeared on both sides of her cheeks as she smiled; they were really pretty.
Lin Mingyu had to admit that, before he came to the date, he didn't really like this intern nurse too much.
He only came because of his cousin, but, after their conversation, he realized that this little nurse was different from the other girls.
"I don't even mind, so why would you mind?" Lin Mingyu demanded.
"Because I know my own limitations." Huo Mian continued to laugh.
"That's a good thing, but you should learn to pick your moments. I've already stated things quite clearly. I don't mind that you don't know anything. If it's my job that's making you scared that we won't have anything in common, then I can't blame you, since forensics is indeed unique and is very difficult to learn. It's hard for regular people to communicate with me."
"That's not the issue, I'm not worried about that." Huo Mian was an honest girl. She didn't think too much when she said this.
However, the other party paid attention to every word she said. Lin Mingyu was already quite upset. Once he heard Huo Mian, he laughed mockingly, "Ha, what do you mean 'that's not the issue'? From the sound of it, you're quite knowledgeable, so don't blame me later on for not warning you. Forensics is a very difficult and knowledge-extensive subject. It's not a random trick that little nurses like you learn in medical school, do you understand? Don't be so pretentious. It's true that you know your own limitations, but don't you think that you're only pretending to know what you don't?"
"I'm not, I'm only speaking the truth," Huo Mian calmly explained.
"Huh? What truth? You're a nurse who graduated from a third-rate medical school, so what truth do you know? I'm very curious." Lin Mingyu's tone had hints of disdain since he had always been quite proud of his professional knowledge.
In the past, he had been on dates with women from prestigious universities before. They all tried to discuss professional knowledge with him, or even tried to show-off, but they were quickly muted by his questions.
However, this little nurse, Huo Mian, was quite deliberate with her arrogant words, which greatly upset him.
"Mr. Lin, I think you might be a bit biased sometimes. I am a nurse, but that doesn't mean that I don't understand other professions. A degree doesn't say everything about a person. Instead, there are many who don't even have a degree yet still have contributed a lot to society."
"You're being hypothetical, there's no point in bringing that up. How about this, tell me what you understand about forensics. Let's sit down and talk. Not about anything else, just about the profession. Do you dare?"
"Ha, if that could alter your bias towards people with less prestigious academic backgrounds, then I'd be more than happy to."
"Okay, sit down, but let me be frank beforehand. If you can't answer the questions I've raised, then you have to properly apologize to me for all the wildly arrogant words and actions you previously committed."
"On the other hand, if you answer all of my questions correctly, then I will apologize to you and re-adjust my bias towards those with less prestigious academic backgrounds, what do you think?" asked Lin Mingyu.
"Okay." Huo Mian originally wanted to leave, but when she heard Lin Mingyu's words, she changed her mind. If she didn't teach this pretentious forensics guy a lesson, then she wouldn't be able to let go of this grudge.
"Of course, it's not too late if you surrender now. I won't mock you for it either."
"No thanks, I won't surrender before I try," Huo Mian calmly replied.
"You really are something else." Lin Mingyu smiled.
"So, Mr. Lin, the clock is ticking, let's talk about your profession," said Huo Mian sternly.
