If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 6.2
Translated by: Cherry
It was very tiring to do the afternoon shift. She was a newcomer and had to follow the Head Nurse around to learn and understand some things. It was just that one could not be too careless when entering the patient’s rooms, that there needed to be a certain amount of order, that one needed to use their knowledge flexibly, to not always rely on other older nurses. Yisheng had done an internship before and was familiar with such things. However, she needed to keep up an appearance and so, she pretended to be very attentive.
The Head Nurse kept looking at her multiple times, and every time the Head Nurse looked at her, Yisheng would show a friendly face, and the Head Nurse would instantly roll her eyes at her, causing her to feel very awkward.
This whole afternoon, they were training and visiting the higher levels of the hospital. When their last visit was close to ending and they were about to end their workday, the Head Nurse brought them to visit the doctor’s treatment room. The Head Nurse said, “There will sometimes be a nurse assigned to help the doctor in the treatment room, but this sort of situation will normally only happen with the special permission of the doctor or when the hospital is very busy.”
The Head Nurse glanced into the first treatment room, then turned their gaze towards Yisheng and the rest, “The few of you have been assigned to the Oncology department, and you’ll often have to walk around here, so you need to familiarize yourself with this place, and you need to get familiar with the doctors in the Oncology department.
At this time, one person came out of the first treatment room. He had just changed his clothes and was still buttoning up his shirt when he was shocked by the many nurses that were at the doorway, hurriedly backing away.
“Dr. Zhuo’s finished work?” The Head Nurse said to him with a smiling face.
Isn’t this the Xiao Zhuozi that Zhao Jixiang was talking about?
Xiao Zhuozi nodded his head, looking at the nurses that were wearing the same uniform, “What are all of you doing?”
“I’m teaching them some of the basic things they have to adhere to,” The Head Nurse smiled and said.
Xiao Zhuozi expressed his agreement and smiled, waving his hands, “Please continue.” After that, his gaze just happened to land on Yisheng. He pointed at her and opened his mouth, unable to say a single word after a long time. In the end, he finally managed to tell Yisheng, “Nurse, you know Zhao Jixiang, right? When you get off work, remember to tell her not to dally and not to be late.”
Yisheng was a little stunned and nodded. Xiao Zhuozi thanked her and walked off. The Head Nurse also glanced at her watch at that moment. Seeing that it was time for them to end work, she told them, “I know that you young people have various activities to attend. It’s time to end work, I won’t hold everyone back, you can leave.”
The nurses bowed politely to the Head Nurse and walked to the changing room orderly. When the Head Nurse could no longer see them, the nurses completely let loose and swarmed away. Yisheng had been pushed to the back a little and did not know whether to laugh or to cry. As expected, this was a very important event.
She slowly walked to the changing room, but saw Zhao Jixiang at the door, pacing back and forth anxiously.
“Jixiang,” Yisheng called. Zhao Jixiang raised her head and saw Yisheng, running over quickly and pulling her into the changing room. “Hurry, hurry, put on your clothes.”
“There’s no need to be in such a hurry, right? There’s still half an hour before the party.”
“Of course we have to be in a hurry, we have to go to the salon to tidy up our hair and style it,” Zhao Jixiang seemed exasperated. Yisheng was shocked by this plan. It was just singing at a KTV, was there a need to treat it so seriously?
And it turned out, there was indeed a need to treat it so seriously, When she entered the changing room, she saw some nurses putting make-up on, looking very serious. Yisheng was completely speechless. The male doctors of the Oncology department were indeed very charming.
Yisheng wall dragged into a luxurious salon by Zhao Jixiang and forcefully pressed onto the chair by Zhao Jixiang, who asked the hairdresser to do whatever he wanted. Yisheng did not like to change her hairstyle. She had always liked straight hair, she only liked having long and straight hair since she was young, but this hairstylist curled her hair inward, giving her Princess hair.
She looked at herself in the mirror, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. She had the aura of a princess but did not have the material wealth to be a princess. Zhao Jixiang had also finished styling her hair and came over. Her original hairstyle was a bobo hairstyle and this time, it was still a bobo hairstyle, but it was much more orderly than before. Thankfully, it was a temporary hairstyle, if it was a permanent hairstyle, Yisheng would break down, she did not want to pretend to be a lady.
Zhao Jixiang was shocked to see such a ‘shining’ hairstyle and was very shocked, pulling on her and looking at her from all angles. She kept muttering from time to time, “I was saying that Yisheng was born beautiful, why do they think that she’s undeserving of Dr. Yan? Hmph, I’ll let them see tomorrow.”
It’s time to show them her beauty.
The two of them had originally planned on going to the KTV right away, but Zhao Jixiang took a glance at Yisheng’s shoes. Instantly, she was quite speechless, “Yisheng, can you be more feminine? You’re wearing flats?”
“I don’t like wearing high heels.”
“You have to learn how to wear high heels even if you don’t like them. The situation requires it, don’t you understand?” Zhao Jixiang then pulled Yisheng to buy shoes.
According to Zhao Jixiang, to understand that you’re a woman, you need to wear high heels, tuck your stomach in, chest puffed, holding your head high, and striding forward with large steps with pride. Of course, there was the exception of flat-footed women who could not wear high-heels.
Yisheng rarely wore high heels. When she wore it this time, she was completely unlike what Zhao Jixiang said, she did not tuck her stomach in and puff her chest out, holding her head high with pride. She was like a cripple, walking very unnaturally. It was like she would fall at any time. When Zhao Jixiang saw Yisheng acting so unnaturally, she took a few steps to demonstrate walking with high heels. There were the clacking sounds of the heels landing on the ground and coupled with her dignified posture, it caused on-lookers to feel that she was very elegant. Zhao Jixiang said, “Yisheng, your posture is too ugly.”
“I don’t like wearing high heels, I always wear flats in college,” Yisheng moved her feet, very inelegantly. Zhao Jixiang looked at her strangely, like she was a primitive caveman.
“Eh, Yisheng, you’re already twenty-five years old, it’s better to know how to wear high heels. You’re not very tall either, don’t you get the feeling that you are much shorter than everyone.”
Yisheng’s height was only 1.62 meters tall. She did need high heels to add to her height. She nodded, understanding, “I will try my best.”
Now that she had started to work, she could not dress like a student. She understood Zhao Jixiang’s intention very well. When she had first arrived at the Oncology department, she had become famous. She did not enter this department due to her talent or rely on her family to get her in. Instead, she relied on a man to get her in. For those proud and easily jealous top students, they would despise her a lot. If she did not dress well too, she would become the person others joked about and mocked.
The two of them took a taxi to the appointed KTV. They had just got off the car when they saw Xiao Zhuozi, who was neatly dressed. He was pacing back and forth, pressing on the phone in his hand continuously, looking very anxious. When Zhao Jixiang saw Xiao Zhuozi, she instantly stopped, pulling out her phone from her bag. Suddenly, her face turned white. Yisheng looked at her curiously and proceeded to look at her phone. There were eighteen missed calls, her phone was in silent mode, no wonder she did not hear any of the calls.
And Xiao Zhuozi, who was very frantic, finally looked over at them. When he saw Zhao Jixiang, he got very angry and walked over, furious. He called out, “Didn’t I tell you not to be late? Will you die if you aren’t late for once?”
“I like being late, why do you care?” Zhao Jixiang’s sharp voice increased in volume, and she glared back at them. Xiao Zhuozi’s expression was furious, and he angrily turned around and entered the room.
At this moment, Zhao Jixiang lost all her anger, staring at his back. She was both stubborn and awkward. Yisheng asked, “Jixiang, should we still go in?”
“Let’s go, why shouldn’t we go in?” Zhao Jixiang pulled on Yisheng’s hand and rushed in.
“Slow down, my heels,” Yisheng was in an embarrassing state, trying her best to keep up with Zhao Jixiang.
Zhao Jixiang brought Yisheng and walked all over. It was with much difficulty that she finally knocked on a door and opened it. The environment that had originally not been very noisy was suddenly interrupted by a loud screeching sound and Yisheng was very shocked.
T/N: So sorry this chapter came so late, it was Chinese New Year and I’m quite busy this week so I had trouble finding time to sit down and translate.
