The director's speed was lightning fast, the patient had been sent into the sickroom as per his instructions. Jiang Chu was taken by surprise.
It was a cute little girl.
Jiang Chu felt agitated somehow, looking at the girl laying in the sickbed with a pale face due to the serious illness.
Don't look at me like this… don't look at me like this.
His heart kept repeating those words, begging pitifully. However, he had to show a calm face and speak about the status of the patient with the director.
The little girl's grandfather---that retired officer from the Municipal Health Bureau, was with them too.
What a retired officer….he was obviously the previous director. The current director was his student and the successor chosen by him personally.
"Doctor Jiang, if everything is prepared, can we start the operation soon? Because I don't want my granddaughter to suffer from this illness every day."
Nevertheless, now, he was only an ordinary grandfather of a patient, with a helpless expression on his face.
Would the operation be successful?
This operation could be performed within 5 to 6 hours. His trembling hands might be prevented through medication.
"Mister Doctor, could you make Tingting better?"
Don't look at me with this kind of expression…please don't…
Jiang Chu gritted his teeth, "Director, she needs more time to prepare and adjust…I understand the feelings of her relatives, but you should know, more care should be taken when performing brain surgeries."
Dean Ma nodded, "I understand. But I assure you, everything that you need will be prioritized. Don't worry about the rest. They have decided to do the operation several months ago, since then, she has received good care, so the operation can take place anytime."
Jiang Chu answered, "I got it."
Tingting's grandfather tightly grasped Jiang Chu's hands. "Doctor Jiang, everything depends on you."
Jiang Chu deeply breathed. "I'll try my best."
Not long after, Jiang Chu went back to his office and laid on his sofa with his eyes closed. As soon as he closed his eyes, he seemed to see the little girl's gaze.
It made him restless and annoyed.
Jiang Chu fished out the black card from his pocket, staring at it, lost in thought.
It was as if voice entered his mind and said, "Come over here…come over here…your wish will come true…come over here…"
All of a sudden, his cellphone rang. Jiang Chu was startled by the sound. His hand trembled, causing him to drop the black card onto the ground.
Jiang Chu frowned. Finally, he answered the phone. It was from his ex-wife.
They had divorced earlier, and Jiang Chu got the custody over his son. But he did not forget about old times, allowing his son to stay with his ex-wife for several days every once in a while.
It reduced the stress since he was busy working in the hospital.
"Jiang Chu, our son fainted. I've called the ambulance and we are on the way to your hospital…what now? Looking at him in pain is breaking my heart!"
Hearing his ex-wife speaking in a sobbing tone, Jiang Chu's face changed.
He rushed out of the office.
Though Tai Yinzi was new, his memory was preserved when he was set free, different from the other black soul envoys.
Of course, Luo Qiu had to pay a little for keeping his memories.
Tai Yinzi came from the ancient society 500 years ago, so he must know more than You Ye about more matters concerning the eastern Taoists.
Except for the affairs in those 500 years where he was imprisoned in the jade.
"It took 15 days' of my life… Too expensive."
After he complained about the high price, Luo Qiu continued reading the book 'Origins of Blue and White Porcelain'.
After a short while, Tai Yinzi went to Luo Qiu respectfully, handing him several papers filled with words. "Master, this is the entire Koan Sutra text I wrote from memory."
Luo Qiu put away the book, before glancing it over.
But he didn't understand it at all.
Tai Yinzi was an old monster with 500 years of life experience. He obsequiously said, "If master wants to learn the sutra, I can give you some guidance! Though Qi nowadays is weak, it's easy for master to practice the basics after recently gaining the green jade from Yang Taizi."
While Luo Qiu shook his head, "No, thanks. I'm just curious about it… Go learn the white card production from You Ye for now."
Tai Yinzi had to leave disappointedly.
Luo Qiu had a short glance at the eastern Taoist book that he couldn't understand, then simply threw it. He only believed in costs and benefits, not those Taoist teachings that require one to cleanse themselves from worldly desires.
As the number of transactions increased, he would become stronger and his abilities would also improve, furthermore, it could even contribute to his endless life, so he didn't want to practice Taoism.
Luo Qiu went on reading 'Origins of Blue and White Porcelain', until closing time. He stretched himself, "Jiang Chu might not come here. I'm going home now."
Before he left, Luo Qiu placed the green jade into the warehouse which took 30 days of his lifespan.
Then he went home.
Ren Ziling hadn't come back yet because she was working overtime to finish typesetting before printing.
Luo Qiu pushed open the door of Ren Ziling's room and walked to her bed. He raised up her mattress and put the green jade under it.
"It's for her birthday half a year later." Luo Qiu mumbled. "Well, this woman is quite…"
Luo Qiu shook his head after viewing the messy clothes she threw about everywhere. He thought he should clean this room but changed his mind in the end.
However just as he thought of it, all the messy clothes started floating in the air.
Luo Qiu was shocked and shuddered, which caused those clothes in midair to fall one after another. A pair of red lacy underwear fell exactly right by his foot.
Luo Qiu kicked it away subconsciously.
Unexpectedly, Ren Ziling's voice appeared, sounding frighten. "Luo Qiu…you…what are you doing here?"
Let's take a look at the situation first.
Due to Luo Qiu's thought of cleaning the room, the clothes became even messier.
Then, maybe due to the viciousness of the universe, some private clothes( you know), fell down around him.
Try imagining this awkward spectacle coming into Ren Ziling's sight.
