Chapter 664: Nie Mi Called to Urge Her
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
No one knew what was said by the person on the other side of the cell phone. She raised her eyes, glanced at the other end of the hospital bed, and slowly retracted her gaze. She got up and half-squinted her eyes, looking a little sleepy and irritable. She said, “Not yet. I’ll do it soon. Let me check the time.”
She raised her head and looked at the clock hanging on the wall. The clock showed that it was eleven o’clock. She pursed the corners of her mouth, let out a sigh, and said lazily, “Let’s eat first. I’ll come and look for you later. Which hotel are you staying at? Send me the address.”
Both Ye Wangchuan and Gu San noticed that she was on the phone.
Gu San saw Ye Wangchuan put down the spoon. With great insight, Gu San asked Qiao Nian, “Miss Qiao, are you not going to have lunch with us?”
“I’m hanging up now.” Qiao Nian had just ended the call when she heard Gu San’s question. She glanced at the man lying on the hospital bed with a slightly sickly expression. She wanted to ask him how they were going to eat together when he was hospitalized. However, before she could speak, she changed her words. “I won’t be able to have lunch with you all today. An elder came from Beijing. He just asked me out for a meal, and I agreed to eat together with him.”
Gu San felt relieved when he heard that she was having a meal with an elder.
As long as the person she was having lunch with was not someone at the same age as her.
Ye Wangchuan looked at the girl who was packing her things and was preparing to leave. At this moment, he raised his eyes and asked, “Do you want Gu San to send you there?”
Qiao Nian received a text message from Nie Mi. She looked at the map. The World Hotel wasn’t far from the city hospital, and it was in the central district of Rao City.
She raised her head and gave a brief response. She put her cell phone away and looked at Gu San. She shook her head and said, “No need, the place I’m going to is not far from here. It’s more convenient to take a taxi.”
“Then… Please have a safe trip.”
Gu San could hear the reluctance in his words.
Qiao Nian then casually said, “I’ll send you a message when I get there.”
She meant that she would inform him about her whereabouts.
Ye Wangchuan raised his thin lips in an instant. He was in a good mood. He put his hand on his laptop. He drank most of the pork liver soup in the bowl beside him. He didn’t know if it was a psychological effect or if the pork liver soup really worked, but it felt really beneficial to his vigor and blood. His spirit was much better than when he woke up this morning. He raised his eyes and felt strong and romantic. “By the way, how is your friend’s grandfather?”
Qiao Nian had already walked to the door and put her hands on the doorknob. She stopped when he heard his question and turned her head. She thought for a while and said, “He has woken up. But the situation is not too good. I have checked his pulse. His organs are failing badly. This time it’s a cardiovascular problem, and the next time it may be the kidneys, liver, or even the heart. The five internal organs of a human being can be compared to a machine. Aging means aging. All the techniques can only prolong its life and cannot restore the parts of the machine back to their former state. If it was taken care of well, it may last a few more years. If not, it may just have two or three years left, depending on the situation.”
Ye Wangchuan looked faintly, gave a soft snort, and spoke with emotion. “He’s old, this is normal.”
“I think so, too.” Qiao Nian also felt that it was normal. People couldn’t live forever. That was unrealistic.
At this time, Nie Mi sent her another message, asking her if she had set off yet. After replying to his message, Qiao Nian raised her hand and spoke to the people in the ward. “The elder is urging me. I have to go first.”
The door let out a clicking sound as it was closed.
As soon as Qiao Nian left, Gu San couldn’t help but ask Ye Wangchuan, “Master Wang, who is the grandfather of Miss Qiao’s friend?”
He wondered whether he was from Aunt Chen’s family or was related to the people Miss Qiao had known before.
Ye Wangchuan did not give a direct answer to his question.. He put away the pork liver soup, refocused his attention on work, and said quietly, “She’s going to the Wei Family’s house.”
