If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 24.2
T/N: Guess what I realized… I forgot to upload part 2 from last week! Here it is~

When Yisheng woke up the second day, Song Anchen was no longer on the bed. When she went out, she saw that Song Anchen was already wearing his white doctor’s coat, his two hands in his pockets, and a medical box on his shoulder. He said with a face of helplessness, “Tidy up everything quickly and go to the village houses. I’ll be leaving first.”
He rubbed the head of the little boy by his side before he left without turning his head back, leaving behind a stunned Yisheng.
“Nurse Ye, did you argue with Doctor Song?” Sister Jiang carried the breakfast and placed it on the dining table. She then asked that question as she called Yisheng over to eat.
Doctor Song said that my husband’s leg is fine and he’ll follow the original plan to stay at another villager’s house. He packed up his things early in the morning.”
Yisheng was just stunned but did not ponder over it.
“When a couple quarrels, you should make up quickly, why is he taking it so seriously?” Sister Jiang could not help but mutter. Yisheng simply smiled and appeased her. How did she make him annoyed? Even she did not know.
The second batch of medical teams that were sent to the countryside began to busy themselves doing consultations about various things. It was said that the nurses being sent to the countryside was simply to help with the manpower issues. The main problem was that the poorer and more remote villages did not have professional nurses, and the burden on the doctors was quite large. After they stayed for half a month to finish the consultations, they needed to go to the nearby county to guide the doctors from the smaller hospitals. Using the words of the higher-ups of the hospital who organized this event, their goal was not simply to do a blood transfusion but to deliver stem cells so that they would be able to achieve self-regeneration, solving the issue from the root of the problem.
(T/N: The same logic of giving a man a fish vs teaching a man how to fish)
That meant that the doctors’ mission was very important. After being busy for half a month, they needed to spend a month guiding other doctors. They would return to the hospital a month later than the nurses.
In the half-a-month that Yisheng spent in the countryside, she did not manage to say a single word to Song Anchen. Song Anchen even rejected those male doctors that knew about their relationship previously and wanted to purposely assign the two of them to the same group for consultations.
And their relationship became very ambiguous. The nurses who had heard the rumors asked Yisheng but Yisheng simply said that this was just a joke.
After that, they went to ask Song Anchen. His expression was very calm and no one could see anything wrong. Only when he found out that Yisheng’s response was that ‘it was just a joke’, he showed a slight smile as his careless tone drifted into Yisheng’s ears, “We often joke about.”
Half a month later, the nurses headed back to the hospital while the doctors continued to their next destination to continue their work. Being a doctor was even more tiring than expected.
When Yisheng returned to the hospital, she felt unhappy from time to time, but she could not find the reason for her unhappiness. The hospital gave the returning nurses a day off and she stayed at home alone, feeling bored.
Yisheng had a bad habit. When she was in a bad mood, she liked to eat sour things. The more unhappy she was, the sourer the things she ate became. She bought a large bag of preserved plums and sucked on the preserved plums she poured in her mouth, sitting in the living room and watching the television.
It was very easy to kill time watching television and very quickly, it was noon. She was hungry and wanted to get up to make some instant noodles to deal with her hunger when she suddenly received a message.
Yisheng jogged into her room and jumped on the bed, pulling out her phone from under her pillow and opening the message she received. When she saw that it was Song Anchen’s message, she suddenly did not dare to open it. For some reason, she felt scared.
She opened it hesitantly but saw that it was a short message. There were only three words on it and those three words were extremely shocking.
I love you.
Yisheng was unable to accept those three words. She had never thought that Song Anchen would send such a message. Even if he sent it, he was probably teasing her. She instantly felt uneasy and rolled about on her bed. Her fingers pressed on her phone, continuously wondering how she should reply to this message.
Say that she loved him too? Or say that it was impossible for the two of them? Or say something like Little Brother Song, are you joking around again? She kept thinking and typed out a lot of different responses. But no matter what she typed, she would delete it and rewrite the message.
She was troubled and scratched her head before she proceeded to roll about on her bed again.
Yisheng suddenly stood up, her expression ferocious and she took a deep breath as if she was very determined. She typed out:
“Little Brother Song, you’re f̲u̲c̲k̲ing joking around again.”
Her finger was preparing to press the send button when she suddenly received another message.
She took a look at the message first.
“I’m sorry, I sent the wrong thing just now. If you like it, you can save it as a draft and keep it to send it to someone you love in the future. If you don’t like it, return it to me.”
When Yisheng saw this message, she almost vomited blood. She angrily deleted the message that she was about to type out. In a fit of annoyance, she typed out three words, “I love you.”
Message was sent successfully…
In the end, barely a minute later, she received Song Anchen’s text.
“Thank you for loving me, I’ll accept your love.”
This time, Yisheng wanted to vomit blood and die. Her whole body cramped up…
