Huo Shaoheng smoothly took out the props he prepared beforehand . He waved two Japanese passports at the middle-aged woman as he explained the reason for his visit in Japanese . The middle-aged women bowed continuously, saying, “Very well, please come with me . You are VIPs, so you don’t need to squeeze in with the rest of the people . ”
Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi smiled as they followed the middle-aged woman to the VIP room inside the clinic .
They had to admit that the clinic’s VIP room was furnished in a manner that was completely worthy of the title .
The floors were natural red cherrywood, with a fine grain and very high-quality material . It was obviously very expensive .
The French windows were framed with blue and white striped drapes, and the fabric was made of an unknown material . It flowed as smoothly and luminously as water .
Several ergonomically designed chairs were arranged in the middle of the room and paired with dark grey L-shaped sofas .
A potted hydrangea in full bloom sat on the coffee table in the middle of the room, with a small golden Buddha statue next to the flowers .
An English poem was framed and hung on the wall across from the entrance of the VIP room .
“A little girl needs Daddy,
For many, many things:
Like giving her the love,
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high,
She’ll always find him there . ”
Gu Nianzhi’s pupils constricted instantly .
This was the poem her father had written on the note, so why was it in a place like this?!
Of course, this children’s poem about a father’s love was very suitable for a clinic specializing in infertility treatment .
Huo Shaoheng quickly patted Gu Nianzhi’s hand calmly when he saw the poem as well . He wanted to stop her from exposing their identities .
The sunglasses they wore concealed the change in their expressions .
The middle-aged woman offered Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng a seat, then brought over a platter filled with cakes and snacks . She also offered fresh-squeezed orange juice, cappuccinos, as well as two types of tea for them to choose from .
Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng didn’t eat anything prepared by unknown sources when they were outside, so they merely gave a polite thanks to the middle-aged woman for laying out the food . They did not show any intention of eating it .
The middle-aged woman didn’t force them to eat it either since she respected them very much . She brought out the tablet used in the clinic and patiently inquired about their situation .
“May I ask how long you have been married for? Have you never gotten pregnant before?” She looked at Gu Nianzhi curiously as she asked the questions .
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
Huo Shaoheng replied on her behalf, saying, “My wife is hard of hearing and mute, so she only understands sign language and reading lips . ”
The middle-aged woman revealed a sudden look of understanding on her face, along with a trace of deep relief .
She nodded quickly, replying with earnest, “I see, I understand now . You were worried that your child might have hearing problems in the future, so that’s why you didn’t want to have children until now? If that’s the case, it’s perfect that you came to our clinic . ”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
That’s not right!
I just don’t want to talk to you!
Gu Nianzhi kept cursing internally, but she was truly impressed with this woman who had great potential as a salesperson . She was able to talk endlessly, even to herself .
Huo Shaoheng pretended to listen earnestly and asked at an appropriate moment, “My wife was born with hearing issues, so I will accept it if my child also has it too . But it sounds like you’re saying that you can help us solve this problem?”
“Well, of course . ” The middle-aged woman was very proud as she said, “I can tell you that we are the only clinic on Blue Planet that is able to provide you with this type of service . You won’t be able to find a tailor-made child anywhere else . ”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
Oh my god, this woman was so full of herself! If she claimed to provide tailor-made children, she might as well say she was a God and could shape people from clay!
Huo Shaoheng was evidently shocked as well .
He gasped loudly, and his beautiful baritone voice nearly made Gu Nianzhi feel intoxicated as it reached her ears .
The middle-aged woman also blushed . She had just been blabbering on now, but couldn’t help but pause when she heard Huo Shaoheng gasp . She then continued to speak .
“Please believe us, my dear . We have first-class reproductive experts at the clinic who will help you screen reproductive cells for combination . We will also cultivate multiple fertilized eggs, then select the healthiest fertilized eggs to implant into your uterus .
“You don’t need to worry about accidentally having twins or triplets . Of course, we can also help if you actually want that…”
Gu Nianzhi kept the sunglasses on and smiled slightly . She had been listening for a very long time and finally began to understand the situation .
This clinic probably provided artificial insemination .
As to the woman’s claims of first-class reproductive experts screening reproductive cells to create fertilized eggs – that was probably just marketing . Gu Nianzhi didn’t believe a single word of it .
This was merely a normal artificial insemination clinic, so how did it receive so much funding from the Angels on Earth charity?
Gu Nianzhi didn’t think this made a lot of sense at all .
Huo Shaoheng probably thought the same thing, so he replied gravely, “Your clinic provides artificial insemination, and can even screen fertilized eggs? As far as I know, that is not possible with typical artificial insemination . ”
“Then you are not yet aware . Others may not be able to do it, but we certainly can . ” The middle-aged woman saw that Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi were Japanese too, so perhaps that was why she gave more detailed explanations to them .
“We are all Japanese people, so I would never trick to you,” she passionately espoused, then grabbed Gu Nianzhi’s hand . “We will provide all the support necessary to create more offspring of such tall, good looking, and outstanding people like yourselves!”
Gu Nianzhi, “ . . ”
Something didn’t seem right .
The middle-aged women’s level of enthusiasm made Gu Nianzhi feel that she shouldered the heavy burden of improving her race .
Huo Shaoheng shielded Gu Nianzhi with one hand and removed her hand from the middle-aged woman’s . He replied unhappily, “My wife doesn’t like to be touched by other people . ”
“Oh, I am very sorry . ” The middle-aged women kept apologizing, then got up to bow . She then brought over a very high-end SLR camera and smiled as she said, “Since you came to consult at our clinic, do you mind if I take a photo for our records?”
Gu Nianzhi shrunk behind Huo Shaoheng, while he also used his hand to block the camera and frowned . “That’s not necessary . Is this how your clinic protects patient confidentiality?”
The middle-aged woman’s face flushed from Huo Shaoheng’s berating, so she timidly put away the camera and said, “I am sorry, I saw you are so good looking and wanted to commemorate the occasion . ”
Gu Nianzhi frowned, pulling at Huo Shaoheng’s shirt to indicate that she wanted to leave .
She had a bone-chilling feeling that she was being watched by many people who were studying her and Huo Shaoheng like they were products .
Huo Shaoheng also had the same strange feeling .
However, Huo Shaoheng’s intuition was honed from escaping death many times before . This wasn’t something he was born with .
Gu Nianzhi’s was a pure instinct derived at birth .
Huo Shaoheng grabbed Gu Nianzhi’s Hand, then said to the middle-aged women, “Thank you for speaking with us, we will consider this carefully . There are a few other clinics, so we need to go research in person before deciding on where we will have the surgery . ”
“Oh? You’re still going to other clinics?” The middle-aged woman was a bit frantic now as she said, “No other clinics compare to us . You don’t need to waste time going to other places . ”
“This is for our child, so of course, we need to be very careful . ” Huo Shaoheng replied politely . He then grabbed Gu Nyanzi’s waist and said, “We will be leaving now .
“Hey, please wait a minute!” The middle-aged woman also seemed to be wearing an earpiece or Bluetooth headset as she obviously tilted her head to listen . She finally called after Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng stopped in his tracks and asked with irritation, “…What else can we do for you?”
The middle-aged woman grinned widely and said, “Congratulations, you’ve won our prize! Our experts are very interested in your case and are willing to provide this surgery free of charge to you . They will also guarantee the implantation of the fertilized egg, and that you will have a healthy and beautiful baby . Once the child is born, we will also provide him with a stipend for a year’s supply of baby formula . Are you willing to accept this? If you accept this, you can sign a contract with our clinic . ”
Gu Nianzhi controlled her urge to exchange a look with Huo Shaoheng and merely stared straight ahead .
She was currently pretending to be mute, so although she was supposed to know how to read lips, it was still inappropriate to reveal any obvious expressions .
She was also thinking to herself the experts were very strange here since they actually provided funds for patients to do surgeries .
Did these funds come from subsidies provided by the Angels on Earth charity?
Speaking of which, what kind of standards are they using to assess patients?
Gu Nianzhi contemplated this with amusement . If the clinic hadn’t seen through her and Huo Shaoheng’s disguise, then the only plausible standard would be they did so just by looking at their faces .
