Chapter 53: Help Me

"What's wrong, are you worried that I won't keep my promise after I take your money? Don't worry, I will definitely do what I've agreed to," Huo Mian explained anxiously.

"No, it's not your fault, it's me. Anyways… I'm sorry. I don't even have the face to see you anymore." After he spoke, Wei Dong hurriedly hung up the phone without giving Huo Mian another chance to respond.

Huo Mian's world crumbled. It took her everything to get that 300,000 yuan, and now, all her efforts resulted in nothing.

She really wanted to cry…

However, Zhixing was still waiting for her inside the VIP Operating Room.

Finally, she decided that she could seek help from the media. She didn't care if anyone laughed at her, because she had to save Zhixing's life more than anything else.

Just as she took out her phone to search for the media's contact information, she received a call from the hospital.

"You have to come now, your brother is in grave condition."

"Okay, I'll be there immediately."

- Half an hour later, outside the First Hospital's VIP room -

"The situation is extremely dire, and the patient can't afford to waste any more time. I suggest that we conduct the surgery now, but I'm not too confident about it. Huo Mian, the director said you know Dr. Qin? I would suggest that you ask him to perform the surgery. It's better if he does it. Plus, you wouldn't want to see any post-surgical side effects, right? This really is a matter of life and death. What do you say?"

"Let me think about it."

"There's no time to think. The patient's cerebral hemorrhage is still ongoing. If we waste any more time, he will go brain dead."

"Okay, wait for me, I'll be back."

In the end, her love for Zhixing defeated all else. She no longer cared if Qin Chu mocked her, or if he made her feel uncomfortable.

No matter what, she had to give it a shot… for her most beloved little brother.

- GK Headquarters -

"Mr. Qin, there's a lady outside to see you. Her family name is Huo," the front desk called.

"Let her in." Huo Mian was the only one Qin Chu knew with the last name "Huo" that would visit him at this time.

- Five minutes later -

Huo Mian knocked on the door to Qin Chu's office.

"Come in."

Huo Mian pushed the door open and walked in. Qin Chu stood before the window, his eyes filled with immense tenderness as he turned around.

Huo Mian was probably the only one who had ever witnessed such a soft look from Qin Chu.

"You've come?"

"I need to talk to you. It's an emergency."

"Tell me."

After a brief moment of hesitation, Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu as she slowly opened her mouth, "My little brother was in an accident and is receiving emergency care at the hospital. He's suffering from cerebral hemorrhage, and the surgery to fix it is extremely difficult. A second surgery is needed, and none of the doctors in the hospital are confident enough to perform it. The director spoke with me, and he recommended that you be the main attending for this surgery, and…" Her voice began trailing off.

"Keep going." Qin Chu looked at her as she spoke.

"And… the surgery costs 300,000 yuan. Even if you perform the surgery, I still have to pay for the medical supplies and equipment. I don't have the money, so could you please lend me some?"

Huo Mian bit on her lips, and she delivered these two requests with great difficulty...

She thought Qin Chu would mock her and make fun of her, or even force her to beg him.

After all, she was the one who abandoned him seven years ago and declared that they were only classmates on graduation day in front of the entire school. This broke Qin Chu's heart, and that was why he left the country.

She thought that he would now use this chance to take revenge on her.

However, upon hearing everything, Qin Chu only said, "Sure, that's fine." 

"Really?" Huo Mian found it somewhat hard to believe.

In fact, Qin Chu already knew what was happening with Huo Mian's brother. Huo Mian didn't know that Qin Chu had been watching Huo Mian's every move, and after Liu Siying sent him that WeChat message, he looked into Huo Mian and Wei Dong's contact history. That was why he issued the death warrant on Triumph Steel Works. Therefore, Qin Chu wasn't shocked when Huo Mian told him of the situation. Instead, he thought of it as an opportunity.

"I could personally perform your brother's surgery, and give you 300,000 yuan, but…" Qin Chu stopped abruptly.

Huo Mian grew slightly disappointed. She knew that he had terms and wouldn't help her for no reason.

"Marry me."

"What?" Huo Mian was shocked.

Did he really mention marriage at a critical time like this?

"Marry me and I'll help you. Or else… no deal." Qin Chu was determined.
