- Chapter 21.1 - Going to the Countryside~
Translated by: Cherry
As soon as Yisheng reached the hospital, she heard a group of nurses talking about how the first batch of volunteers that had gone to the countryside had all returned to the hospital. The next name list would come out in two days and they were guessing who would have to suffer and go down to the poor countryside.
If one went to the countryside, it was not just for one or two days, instead, it was for ten days to half a month. For these kids, who are used to staying in the city, none of them liked going to the countryside. Yisheng quietly sat at the side and listened to them gossip. Zhao Jixiang was the most enthusiastic in the discussion. She was always so spirited, and she never seemed to be tired.
She said, “In my opinion, now that the attending doctors have made the trip down, the next ones to go are the potential doctors in the various departments.”
The others agreed with Zhao Jixiang’s words. Jian Meimei proceeded to say, “The first batch of nurses that went were all those that were very qualified. Will the next batch me the nurses that have been working for a few years?”
“It’s possible,” A few people nodded their heads in agreement. The slightly older nurses were very worried, “It can’t be. Do we have to go to the countryside? I heard that the place that the first batch went to was not bad, it was a small affiliated village of B City. However, the experimental site for the second batch is an isolated village in remote mountainous areas. Even having a power supply is an issue.”
The expressions of the nurses that were listening changed, all of them expressed that they did not want to go to such a place. Zhao Jixiang turned her head around to comfort Yisheng, “No matter what, we won’t be included in the second batch, don’t worry.”
Yisheng smiled mildly. Whatever the matter was, as long as one persevered, it would eventually be over. Furthermore, they would only be going for around ten days. Was there a need to be so scared? It was not like they were staying there for a long time.
Just when the few nurses were expressing their opinions, the Head Nurse walked over, looking unhappy. The nurses that had been gossiping instantly went their separate ways. The noisy surroundings instantly became quiet because of the Head Nurse’s arrival.
“The kids these days are all so spoilt. Isn’t it just going to a place and suffering for a little? There’s not a single person who’s willing to go in all the departments,” The Head Nurse started to complain to them, her gaze landing on the group of nurses that were pretending to be very agreeable, “We have a quota in our department, the few of you can decide. You have to go whether you want to or not.”
The expressions of the nurses in the duty room immediately turned bad. They looked at each other, trying to avoid responsibility. Zhao Jixiang leaned over and whispered to Yisheng, “Something is wrong with this situation.”
Hm? Yisheng looked at Zhao Jixiang, curious. Zhao Jixiang said, “No one is willing to go, with the Head Nurse’s personality, she’ll use scissors-paper-stone to make the decision. This time, it won’t be dependent on how experienced you are. It’ll be dependent on your luck.”
Zhao Jixiang had just finished saying those words when the Head Nurse, who was feeling impatient frowned and looked at them angrily, “I knew that all of you are as delicate as the other departments. Never mind, play scissors-paper-stone, whoever loses will go. Split into groups and do it by elimination, the loser goes.”
Everyone felt that this method was the most reasonable, so they split into groups and played. Zhao Jixiang simply asked the closest person, and directly told Yisheng, “Come, come, let’s play.”
“Yes,” Yisheng showed scissors, while Zhao Jixiang showed stone and Yisheng lost.
“Ahaha, successfully passing the round,” Zhao Jixiang stopped smiling, patting Yisheng’s shoulder, “Take care.”
In the end, she was defeated many times, and she lost all the way. In the end, Yisheng gloriously became part of the ‘second batch of volunteers’. The nurses that managed to escape let out a sigh of relief, finally feeling relaxed.
The Head Nurse thought for a moment and then told Yisheng in a caring manner, “Since you’re going to be sent there, I have to take care of you. That place is very poor, and no car can reach that area. You’ll need to climb mountains, and I heard that when you reached the power supply is often insufficient, so you’ll have to be prepared for hardship. But don’t worry, there are more than ten medical staff in the second batch, there should be someone who’ll take care of you.”
Yisheng gritted her teeth and nodded her head. It did sound a little tough.
When her shift started, Yisheng went to a hospital room to administer IV drips for patients. When she pushed the cart and walked in the hallway, she happened to see a seemingly gentle Song Anchen, who was wearing a big white coat and his gold-rimmed glasses.
Tch, he’s a beast in clothes. Yisheng muttered in her heart. She had originally wanted to just brush past him, but Song Anchen opened his mouth to say, “I saw your name on the list of volunteers just now.”
Yisheng rolled her eyes. When that matter was mentioned, she felt angry. She lost all the way till the end, how embarrassing was that? Song Anchen smiled and said, “When it’s time to depart next week, remember to wear looser pants and travel shoes.”
Yisheng was slightly stunned, Song Anchen’s carefulness always made it hard for her to resist. She nodded her head and pushed the cart into the hospital ward. She helped the patients administer their IV drips one by one, following the name list. When she saw the ‘Yan Yan’ on the list, she paused slightly. For some reason, ever since the incident that morning, she felt like she had let her senior down. Her senior treated her so well, but she lied to him. She pushed the cart to G31 and knocked on the door.
The deep voice that sounded from inside was her senior’s, “Come in.”
She was shocked for a moment, then took a deep breath. She needed to face her senior as she had in the past. After she gave herself such an instruction, she smiled as she walked in. When she walked in, she saw Yan Yan with his legs crossed as he played on his PS. When he saw Yisheng enter, he yelled enthusiastically, “I was wondering why my brother would suddenly come to my hospital ward. So he’s treating this place as his dating spot, to meet his lover.”
Yisheng felt a little awkward. Yan Heng gave Yan Yan an angry look, “Play your game and talk less.”
“Alright, the two of you can flirt as much as you want. Just treat me as if I’m transparent!” Yan Yan gave Yisheng an ambiguous look, laughing slyly. Yisheng coughed lightly and nodded at Yan Heng. Then, she picked up the IV drip bottle and the needle, walking towards Yan Yan, smiling, “Come here, let me give you an injection.”
Yan Yan shrunk into himself, feeling like Yisheng’s expression was a little scary, “I’m a patient, I need care.”
“Of course, I’ll take care of you,” Yisheng squinted her eyes slightly, her expression was definitely very innocent and nice, but her smile had a danger to it that was hard to detect. Yan Yan looked at Yan Heng pitifully, asking for help, “Brother…”
“Be good,” Yan Heng simply said those two words.
Yan Yan could only resign himself to his fate, regarding death as inevitable, “If you don’t inject it well, I’ll definitely complain.” He fiercely threatened Yisheng. Yisheng smiled, then bent down to help him disinfect, now that she was close to him, Yan Yan accidentally saw the hickey on her neck and laughed loudly, “Brother, as expected, you are a clothes-wearing beast.”
Yan Heng did not understand the meaning of Yan Yan’s words, a little confused. Yan Yan pointed at Yisheng’s neck, smiling slyly. The expression on their faces suddenly turned white, and from Yan Yan’s point of view, the two of them turned pale simply because of their awkwardness from being exposed. He laughed even more.
Yisheng helped him administer his drip. After she adjusted the speed of the drip, she wanted to leave. When she faced her senior, her expression got even worse, and she quickly escaped. When she walked out of the door, she heard Yan Heng ask Yan Yan, “Who is your attending doctor now?”
“It’s a handsome guy, he’s even more handsome than you. It’s Doctor Song.”
