Chapter 35: Reward
"Okay, I'll head back now."
After she left Fourth People's Hospital, she switched onto another bus to return to First People's Hospital.
- Inside the head nurse's office -
"Huo Mian, I've spoken to the hospital director about the request you've made, and he approved it. Here is your bonus."
After she spoke, the head nurse passed her a brown paper envelope.
Huo Mian accepted the envelope and noticed that it was quite heavy. Surprised, she asked, "Head nurse, how much is in this?"
"Twenty thousand yuan."
"That much?" Huo Mian was shocked.
"The hospital director stated how crucial this operation was; the official already woke up and is recovering well. He wants to make sure that every participating hospital staff is well-rewarded."
"Thank you head nurse. Please also thank the director for me."
"You don't need to thank me, you deserved it. Plus, you've also taken quite a great risk."
Huo Mian smiled, but she didn't say anything…
With twenty thousand yuan, she would be able to pay off her credit card bill and also her debt to Lingling. This was wonderful!
This airy debt-free feeling was delightful...
"Huo Mian, can I ask you a personal question?"
"Sure head nurse, go ahead."
"I actually heard of what happened to you. You performed very well academically in high school, and even received many invitations and full scholarships from various medical schools abroad. Your university entrance examination score was 697 out of 700, qualifying you for Jing University, which has the best medical program in our country. However, why did you choose a local medical program? With your talent and knowledge back then, you could have become an exceptional doctor and not the ordinary nurse intern you are now."
"That…is my own choice. I guess everyone makes different decisions," answered Huo Mian with a bitter smile.
"I've been observing you for the six months that you've been here. Your work ethic is great, you're quite bright and gifted, and you can understand medical principles quickly. I think it's a waste for you to continue like this. Each year, our hospital sends talented individuals to study abroad, and there's one spot for this opportunity in our department. Applications start in July of this year, and you will get the chance to spend eight months in Canada. If you're interested…"
"Thank you, head nurse, but I really don't need it. Let someone else have this chance, I'm just... an ordinary nurse."
After she finished, Huo Mian bowed to the head nurse with great respect and then turned around to leave.
The head nurse looked at Huo Mian as she walked away, and she was a bit confused.
She didn't understand why an unbelievably talented youth like her would choose to kill her own dream.
- On the other side of town, inside the president's office at GK Headquarters -
A middle-aged man dressed in a black suit sat on the sofa and faced Qin Chu, who was sitting across from him.
He was the middle-aged man who arrived with eight special agents at the Qin Manor that morning to pick Qin Chu up.
"Doctor Qin, the official's surgery went extremely well. After the critical period last night, our military aircraft already transported him back to Jing City to rest and recover. Please allow me to thank you on behalf of the official. I am also following the official's orders to speak with you, and to find out if there's anything we could help you with."
"Are you offering me a reward as a thank you?" Qin Chu replied with a question of his own.
"Yes, I am. If there's anything you need, let us know, and we'll do our best."
"Then what do you suppose I lack right now?" Qin Chu asked again.
The middle-aged man froze and had no clue how to respond. As the President of GK Corporation, Qin Chu really didn't seem like someone who was in need of anything.
After a while, the middle-aged man took out an envelope of files and set it on the table. With a light cough, he said, "Someone as prestigious as you indeed lacks nothing, but we found out that you, 27 years old, do not have a girlfriend. Therefore, we've especially compiled a file of all the socialites who live in the three nearby provinces. They all have dignified family backgrounds and are exceptionally beautiful. Please look through these files closely, and let me know if you like any of them. I'll make sure to take care of it."
"So, you mean that your boss's reward for me is to help find me a girlfriend?" asked Qin Chu coldly after laying eyes on the files.
