“A high price for an appointment with me?” Huo Mian asked .
“Yeah . ”
“How does the person look like?”
“She looks like… a young girl . She said she’s got a rare illness . ”
“But I don’t treat rare illnesses . ” Huo Mian smiled in resignation .
“I explained it to her, but she still insisted on seeing you . So, the registration office asked me to seek your opinion . ”
“I see… Let her in . We’ll just take the usual appointment fees,” Huo Mian instructed .
Nodding, Chen Jie left and Huo Mian continued reading the reports .
Five minutes later, a knock came .
“Come in . ”
“Dr . Huo, I’ve got an appointment with you . ”
“Oh . Come in and take a seat . ” Huo Mian put down her black ball pen and beckoned at the girl .
The girl wore a simple white long shirt, a pair of pale blue jeans, and a pair of white sneakers .
With her long hair draping down her back, she wore a black baseball cap .
She looked mysterious with half of her face covered by a black mask .
Glancing at her, Huo Mian wondered if she was a movie star or an internet celebrity who was trying to hide her face from people .
“Dr . Huo, it’s hard to get an appointment with you . They took a long time to agree to my request to see you,” the girl sat down and began to complain .
“It’s not their fault . I’m pregnant and have a smaller workload . I don’t see patients now and only manage the daily operations of the hospital . ”
“Oh, I see…” The girl drawled .
“What’s troubling you?”
“I… I have lots of strange spots on my face… I don’t know what disease it is . ”
“Spots? You should see a doctor in the dermatology department . ” Huo Mian wasn’t familiar with this area and didn’t dare to give her opinion on it .
“Dr . Huo, you can’t push me to other departments . I know the doctors usually push their patients to other departments because they don’t want to take responsibility . ”
“No . It’s not like that; you misunderstood me . I meant that my specialties are OB/GYN, neurology, and orthopedics… I know something about neurosurgery, too . But I can’t treat other illnesses . If I make a mistake, I might delay your treatment . ”
“I don’t care; I trust you, Dr . Huo . ”
The girl was stubborn . Hearing her sweet voice, Huo Mian sighed in exasperation .
“Take off your mask then . I’ll see the condition of your skin . Is it okay for you?”
The girl didn’t answer .
“Don’t worry . No matter who you are, I won’t tell anyone about your information . It’s our basic professional moral rules to protect our patients’ privacy . Trust me . ”
“Um… Okay . But, Dr . Huo, my face might scare you… I hope you don’t have trypophobia . ”
“No . ”
“You must brace yourself . The spots are many and scary…” the girl warned Huo Mian .
“Don’t worry . I can eat wontons even in front of a corpse… I won’t be scared . ”
Huo Mian stood up and took out a pair of sterilized gloves from the disinfection cabinet . Putting them on, she walked from behind her desk and stood before the girl .
She took off the mask from the girl’s face .
When the mask was taken off, Huo Mian froze, feeling as if she dreaming .
