Chapter 55: Trust

- First People's Hospital of C City -

Qin Chu's decision to personally operate on Jing Zhixin rattled the hospital director. He immediately ordered for the preparation of the VIP Operation Room.

It wasn't until Qin Chu had on a white surgical gown and was reading over the medical files with such focus did Huo Mian realize how incredibly charming the man was.

She couldn't believe that the sight in front of her was real...

She never thought that one day, she would be able to see him stand in the operating room as a doctor, with the lights illuminating his handsome face. The familiar figure, the man who she was once deeply in love with, was there in front of her. It felt unreal.

She made her way to Qin Chu slowly and quietly, but he noticed her movements.

As soon as he saw Huo Mian, his gaze softened...

"I want to help you."

"No, it's fine. You can wait for us outside."

"Let me help, I want to be in there. I was present for that important surgery, so it won't be a problem this time. I will be very careful," Huo Mian said adamantly.

Qin Chu gazed at her for a few seconds and said slowly, "This is different. He's your younger brother. I'm afraid you'll be distracted."

"But..." Huo Mian seemed unwilling to give in and wanted to say more.

"Do you trust me?" asked Qin Chu.

Huo Mian was taken back...

"If you trust me, let me take care of it."

After a few seconds of silence, Huo Mian nodded her head slightly...

"Dr. Qin, we can begin the surgery. Everything is ready," the assistant surgeon opened the door and announced.

Qin Chu picked up the surgical mask. He put it on slowly and turned to enter the OR.

At that moment, Huo Mian swore that she had never seen a more attractive man...

Huo Mian waited outside the surgery room, feeling anxious. Half an hour went by without any news.

Suddenly, the sound of footsteps echoed throughout the hallway. Huo Mian raised her head, looking slightly surprised at the person walking towards her.

"Director, you're here."

"Yes, how is it going in there?"

"I don't know yet." Huo Mian looked worried.

"No need to worry, I trust Dr. Qin's surgical skills."

Huo Mian nodded...

Then, the hospital director said meaningfully, "You're probably the only person who can persuade him into coming here."

Huo Mian felt slightly embarrassed. She didn't want to flaunt her relationship with Qin Chu, nor did she want to tell others about it.

"I really want to hire him to be a doctor here, but unfortunately... how could I match up to the pay a president receives from GK? I am curious about one thing, however, and as his friend, maybe you know something about it."

"What is it?" Huo Mian asked quietly.

"Dr. Qin was born into a wealthy family, and he's the rightful successor of GK. Why did he go abroad for seven years to study at Harvard Medical School? I think… it's quite strange."

Huo Mian bit down on her lips, responding after a while, "Actually, I don't really know either."

Hearing her answer, the hospital director looked slightly disappointed...

"Anyways, don't worry too much. I'm sure that the surgery will be successful."

"Thank you, Director." Huo Mian nodded in gratitude.

The hospital director turned to leave but quickly turned back as he had forgotten to say something. "An hour ago, the hospital received payments for the surgery from GK's finance department. It was a total of 500,000 yuan. 300,000 for the operation and the remaining 200,000 is probably for follow-ups."

"Rea...lly?" Huo Mian was surprised. Not only did Qin Chu deliver the money to her so quickly, he even gave her an additional 200,000 yuan for follow-up fees. He really was thoughtful.

Before the hospital director left, he gave Huo Mian a meaningful look and said, "Huo Mian, you are a lucky girl."

Then, the hospital director turned around and left...

Huo Mian stood there, dazed. She had also thought that she was the luckiest girl for meeting Qin Chu.

But, the incident with Uncle Jing led to their breakup. She was incredibly miserable afterward, wishing from then on that she had never met Qin Chu.

If only she didn't attend 2nd High School...

Now that such a long time had passed by, she realized there was truth to the hospital director's words.

During her time of need, with so many people around, it was still Qin Chu who truly came to her rescue.

It seemed like his presence could always calm her heart.

As she was lost in her thoughts, Huo Mian's phone suddenly rang.

"Why are you calling me?" Huo Mian asked with a hint of vigilance as she picked up the phone.
