If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 25.1
Translated by: Cherry
Yisheng had been a little bored of everything lately and Zhao Jixiang noticed. When they were working, whenever she had nothing to do, Yisheng would lay her head on the table, playing with the pen in her hand. Her fingers would move about and the pen in her hand would be twirled around a few times. When the pen dropped, Yisheng could continue. This was a cycle that made it obvious to Zhao Jixiang how bored she was.
When the other nurses had free time, they would chat to each other enthusiastically, waving their hands about. They were not at all like Yisheng, twirling a pen out of boredom.
Zhao Jixiang could not stand it anymore and walked to Yisheng’s side, sighing. She said in a serious tone, “You’ve become like this just because Doctor Song isn’t in the hospital. You’ve completely fallen in,” She patted Yisheng’s shoulder, her expression full of pity.
Yisheng raised her head pitifully to look at Zhao Jixiang, “When will they come back?”
Zhao Jixiang looked up to the sky and hit her forehead, speechless. She rolled her eyes at Yisheng, “You’ll be able to see your beloved childhood sweetheart in five days.”
Yisheng sighed, “There’s still five days…”
Zhao Jixiang looked at her sideways, a disdainful expression on her face, “You can’t take it?” After that, she had a sorry look on her face, “Sigh, women in love.”
“Why aren’t they staying longer? They’re coming back so quickly?” Yisheng suddenly said and Zhao Jixiang almost lost her balance and fell. Yisheng sighed, feeling nervous. She was very contradictory, she was scared that it would be awkward seeing Song Anchen and did not dare to meet him, hoping that time would pass faster. However, deep in her heart, it was different, she wanted to see him. These sorts of contradictory feelings made her feel quite complex.
Yisheng helped inject a patient and then helped Yan Yan set up a drip. From the start to the end, she did not even smile. Yan Yan could not help but ask, full of curiosity, “Are you missing my brother?”
“Ah?” Yisheng did not understand. However, after being reminded by Yan Yan, she indeed realized that the few days after she came back, Yan Yan seemed to have disappeared into thin air.
“My brother seems to have returned to school to further his studies. He might go abroad after some time.”
Yisheng blinked her eyes, slightly shocked, “Senior is going abroad?”
“It seems like your hospital is choosing a doctor with potential for further studies. The only thing is I don’t really understand how my older brother got the place. I heard that the popular choice isn’t my brother, my brother was chosen for some reason.”
Yisheng gritted her teeth, suddenly feeling troubled. With her senior’s qualifications, it was understandable that he would go on to do his further studies. In the past, their school also sponsored some students to go overseas to do further studies and her senior had a place in the program but he did not go in the end.
She had asked her senior but her senior had just said carelessly, “Studying, you can study anywhere. What’s the use of running so far? It’s too troublesome to go overseas, I’m someone that’s scared of troublesome things.”
Her senior was indeed scared of troublesome things. He did not like to eat fish, feeling that it was troublesome that he needed to spit out bones every time he ate a piece of meat. A person that hated troublesome things so much had agreed to go overseas this time?
Yan Yan saw Yisheng’s distracted appearance and smiled widely, “You can follow my brother overseas, there’s no need to be so sad.”
Yisheng looked at him from the corner of her eyes, feeling like his words were not reliable at all. Yan Yan seemed to feel Yisheng’s contempt and he instantly muttered, defending himself, “My parents are both in America, isn’t it better for you to migrate over after you’ve married my brother?”
This was the first time Yisheng found out about Yan Heng’s family background. However, she wondered, since his family was all in America, why didn’t Yan Heng go overseas and instead stayed in China this whole while?
“Why are you and senior staying in China?” Yisheng could not help but ask.
Yan Yan crossed his legs and said happily, “I’ve been overseas for five to six years and this time around, I came back to visit my brother but I did not expect to fall so sick when I arrived,” His originally lively face immediately turned aggrieved and he lowered his head, sniffing.
This was obviously just him joking around, but Yisheng had always been curious. Yan Yan was a patient with chronic myeloid leukemia. His bone marrow transplantation surgery had been arranged in less than a month. Once, when the nurses were chatting, they had said that Yan Yan’s family background was very good. Later on, they found out that Yan Yan was Yan Heng’s younger brother, so they naturally thought that this was due to Yan Heng.
Her senior was only a chief surgeon, did he have so much power? This was the first time Yisheng had such questions, so she continued to ask Yan Yan. Although Yan Yan found it strange that Yisheng did not know about his brother’s background, he answered truthfully, “My father is a diplomat and my mother is a psychologist.”
It turned out that Yan Heng was from a rich family, and his family had some power.
“Actually, Younger Brother Yan Yan, my relationship with senior is purely friendship,” Yisheng felt that she needed to clear up the misunderstanding.
“I couldn’t tell,” Yan Yan looked her up and down, “My brother gave up on foreign girls and stayed in China. He didn’t return to Beijing either and directly came to B City. Who could it be for?”
“Isn’t City B your hometown?” Yisheng rolled her eyes and lied with her eyes open.
However, Yisheng’s question made Yan Yan shocked. He widened his already large eyes and asked in disbelief, “Our family is from Beijing, our hometown has nothing to do with B City.”
Yisheng widened her eyes at the same time, blinking as she looked at Yan Yan. She suddenly felt a little puzzled. If her senior wasn’t from B City, why did he tell her he was from her hometown in school? Furthermore, why was he so familiar with this city? Yisheng was suddenly confused and did not understand.
While she was working in the afternoon, she kept thinking about this matter. She really wanted to ask him and find out but felt that there was no need to. Even though her senior had lied to her, he treated her so well. Did it matter whether he had lied to her or not?
She was just feeling very curious. It was not that she was accusing him of anything.
When they ended work for the day, Yisheng went to the changing room and changed out of her uniform. She had originally planned on giving her senior a call to ask him how he was. Her phone was in her hand and she had yet to find his number when Zhao Jixiang, who had just finished changing suddenly came from behind and leaned on her shoulder. She had not expected it and Yisheng was so shocked that she broke out in cold sweat. Yisheng narrowed her eyes and looked at her, “What can I do for you?” Normally when Zhao Jixiang was so enthusiastic, it was nothing good.
Zhao Jixiang did not seem to have anything to ask her today. She was a direct person and she did not act pitiful today. Yisheng saw Zhao Jixiang maintain her smile, “Yisheng, for the National day holiday, let’s go to Thailand.”
“…” Go overseas during the long holiday?
“It was organized by the oncology department. Most people in the internal medicine and surgery department are going. It won’t be good for us to miss it, right?” Zhao Jixiang smiled slyly and wiggled her eyebrows, her expression extremely evil.
Yisheng rolled her eyes, “You aren’t planning on spending your time alone with Xiao Zhuozi?”
“If we spend our time in Thailand together, isn’t that better?” She placed her palms together, getting carried away.
When she found out that Xiao Zhuozi was going, Song Anchen, who had always been close to Xiao Zhuozi would probably go as well. After Yisheng considered that, she instantly rejected the idea of going on this trip, “I won’t go.”
“But…” Zhao Jixiang showed a pitiful expression as if she were about to cry, “I’ve already helped you sign up.”
Yisheng smiled superficially but her gaze was enough to kill. Zhao Jixiang held Yisheng’s face that was twitching and pursed her lips, “We’re best friends, and as the saying goes, it’s better to have fun in a group than alone.”
“Then in the future, there’s no need to discuss any questions with me. You can directly tell me about it like it’s a statement.”
Zhao Jixiang stuck out her tongue out and hid her emotions. At this time, the two of them had reached the hospital entrance. Xiao Zhuozi was already waiting for her. It was like Zhao Jixiang had seen her savior and she instantly waved her hand at Yisheng to say goodbye. She even instructed her, “Don’t forget.”
