Chapter 432 - Little Bodyguard
“Ah? You’re Professor Guan’s granddaughter! That’s perfect, do you know Miracle Doctor Lin Yi’s phone number? I’m looking for him…” Fatty Lai started crying again. “My dad has uremia, and he’s dying… Miracle Doctor Lin’s able to cure him, but Professor Guan wouldn’t give me his phone number.”
“You’re looking for Lin Yi?” Guan Xin blinked. One look at that sad face and she decided to help him. “Maybe I can tell you. If he scolds you then tell him I’m the one who gave the number…”
Guan Xin had a kind heart- she couldn’t bear seeing this fatty crying as he knelt in front of their door.
“Thank you, thank you! Miss Guan, you have a really kind heart… You must be Miracle Doctor Lin’s girlfriend, right?” Fatty Lai may be a crybaby, but he was still a seasoned veteran in the business world- he had very extraordinary observation ability, and that unconscious blush on Guan Xin’s face when he mentioned Lin Yi told him that their relationship should be a little special.
So that was why Lin Yi and Xuemin were so close- it was because of her! Fatty Lai had wondered why Lin Yi wanted to start a medicine company with Xuemin before, not understanding how he trusted Xuemin so much when he was much more of a miracle doctor than the professor was!
So there was another factor at play here!
“N-No… We’re just… good friends…” Guan Xin stuttered a little from the embarrassment Fatty Lai was causing her- despite the blush she was actually really happy to hear what he said. The fatty may be a crybaby, but he sure spoke sweetly… She didn’t give him Lin Yi’s number for nothing.
“Haha, I’ll leave you then, Miss Guan! I’ll go make the phone call!” Fatty Lai wanted to be associated with Lin Yi as soon as possible.
Guan Xin was getting pretty embarrassed, so she was relieved that Fatty Lai was saying goodbye as she ran into the villa.
Lin Yi remembered that Tang Yin would be at the tree-planting event tomorrow after reaching home- he wondered if she had a sapling already. He took his phone out to make a call when it rang all of a sudden- he thought it was Tang Yin, but it turned out to be an unknown number.
“Hello?” Lin Yi picked it up.
“Is this Miracle Doctor Lin?” Fatty Lai said happily.
“Miracle Doctor Lin? Who are you?” Lin Yi paused.
The phone calls he received recently were all weird- there was one looking for Grand Thief Lin, and now another looking for Miracle Doctor Lin…
“Miracle Doctor Lin, it really is you! I’m Lai Changyi!” Fatty Lai introduced quickly.
“Lai Changyi? I don’t know you!” Lin Yi said as he prepared to hang up.
“Waah… M… Miracle Doctor Lin, you don’t remember me anymore? Waah… Waah…” Fatty Lai started crying again.
“I remember!” Lin Yi recognized the crying right away. “You’re that crybaby fatty, aren’t you?”
“Yes, yes! That’s me, Miracle Doctor Lin! Do you remember?” Fatty Lai was surprised and joyed.
“I do. What do you need?” Lin Yi asked.
“Alright, so the Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing is really effective! I’m just calling to make sure I pay you the medical fees- would you like it transferred?” Fatty Lai asked.
“Oh, that. It’s okay, I said I’d give it to you.” Lin Yi rejected Fatty Lai’s intentions. One hundred million was a huge sum, and he himself needed the money, but this was a pill that had been stained with dog shit, a pill that Zhaoming threw away… Lin Yi couldn’t really accept payment for something like that.
“That won’t do! You need to accept the money, else it’ll be hard on my conscience… Waah... “ Fatty Lai started crying once more.
“Huh??” Lin Yi was speechless. “What’s wrong with saving you money?”
“What about this then! Miracle Doctor Lin, you’re starting a medicine company, aren’t you? What do you think of an office as a gift? I’ve just had a skyscraper built, I’m planning on moving the company I’m in charge of in there but I don’t need that much space, a couple floors will do. I wanted to rent the rest of the place out but how about I just give it to you?” Fatty Lai asked.
“If you really want to, then alright.” Lin Yi didn’t reject the offer after hearing it was somewhere for his office- it’d save him the trouble to locate and buy one.
“Alright, I’ll write your name on the deed?” Fatty Lai said happily now that Lin Yi had said yes.
“Write Grandpa Guan’s…” Lin Yi wanted to give Fatty Lai Xuemin’s name when he thought about it- Xuemin probably wouldn’t agree to this. “Actually, no- write Guan Xin’s.”
“Alright, I got it.” Fatty Lai nodded quickly. Lin Yi sure had a deep relationship going on with Guan Xin- his guess was most likely correct.
“Is there anything else?” Lin Yi was waiting to give Tang Yin a phone call, and wasn’t in the mood for all this.
“Um… About that Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing… Is it okay if you sell me another one…” Fatty Lai asked, revealing his intention.
“Oh. Well, your old man won’t be dying for a while.” Lin Yi said. “After a couple days, if everything with the company starts successfully I’ll auction some of those pills. You can go buy it then.”
“Okay, okay! As long as you’re selling it!” Fatty Lai didn’t lack money- he didn’t mind it being an auction. “Waah… I’m so happy…”
Lin Yi hung up and breathed out slowly- the guy was way too naggy, he couldn’t take much more of that. He shook his head and called Tang Yin.
“Hello? Lin Yi? What’s up?” Tang Yin was just coming back from the hospital when she received the call.
“We’re planting trees at school tomorrow- do you have your sapling?” Lin Yi asked.
“Yeah, do you want one? I have a lot in the yard.” Tang Yin said. “You can just come take a couple saplings if you want.”
“Ohh…” Lin Yi slapped his head- he’d forgotten that Tang Yin lived in a flat house in the slums, so there was a yard with tons of wild saplings there. “No, I was just thinking that I’d buy you some if you didn’t have any…”
“It’s alright, haha…” Tang Yin was evidently really happy to hear that, all warm and fuzzy and sweet for Lin Yi. She’d finally realized what love was like- it was a very pleasant experience… She’d always pushed stuff like that aside, but now that she really did fall in love it couldn’t be stopped at all…
“Alright, see you tomorrow.” They chatted for a bit until Mrs. Tang called Tang Yin over for dinner.
In the Floating Cloud Bar was An Jianwen, his face solemn and dark as he sat beside Li Cihua. “You need to help me this time, Cihua Bro- send some powerful people to teach that kid a lesson! He really messed me and Taizao up this time!!”
Cihua Bro sighed, but didn’t say anything in response.
“Cihua Bro, the master of the Firewolves is with my older brother right now, and there aren’t any new masters yet, you know this- I wouldn't be asking for this favor otherwise!” Jianwen started panicking a little at Cihua’s silence.
“Masters… What level are they?” Cihua finally spoke after sighing again.
“Early phase golden stage! He was supposed to be by my side, but my brother has no class- he took him away!” Jianwen’s eyes were full of toxicity. “If he hadn’t done that I wouldn’t be here enduring this humiliation from some little bodyguard!”
hey. Remember how I'd always make up the next day when I don't post? Well you may have noticed that I don't do that now, and the reason why is that it's incredibly stressing to think that I'd have to work double time tomorrow if I skip today. Mm hm, not a good feeling at all. Because of that I still translate when I'm especially tired, or when I'm a little sick, etc, especially how recently I need more money for tuition fees, living costs and stuff like that, and also because my parents are a little bit financially troubled for the time being. Make no mistake, translating is a very nice job that I can just turn on my computer to do, and there's fans and people reading so I feel like helping to create something, there's also that nice Patreon page that directly proves there are people willing to support me, and it also improves my writing and Chinese (heh I'm better at English) plus I'm reading a story as I work. It's really nice, but I have a lot other stuff that I wanna and have to do too, so I hope you guys understand when I don't post sometimes. I know most of you are okay if I disappear once in a while already, so thanks :D
thanks for everything.
