If I Have You, What More Could I Ask For In This Life? - Chapter 7.1
Translated by: Cherry
After that incident, one night, Yisheng was on duty with Zhao Jixiang.
Zhao Jixiang had been asking Yisheng who that mysterious man was, but Yisheng did not tell her. She was trying to avoid worrying about this matter. It was not the first time that Song Anchen and played a prank on her. When she was in junior high school, in Year Three, she had managed to do well and was admitted to the same high school as Song Anchen. The two families had decided to go to a KTV together to sing and enjoy themselves. Just when they were singing happily, Song Anchen said that he had a gift for her and asked her to come out. At that time, she had been excited and interested as she left the room. However, she had not expected that this gift was a lingering kiss… it was after that time that she lost her first kiss.
With her experience from before, she thought that what had happened was him playing a prank on her. On the other hand, Yisheng was very curious about the matter between Zhao Jixiang and Xiao Zhuozi. Zhao Jixiang did not hide the story between her and Xiao Zhuozi from Yisheng and told her everything. They had gotten together in their first year of university. Because Zhao Jixiang was not very sensitive about such things, she did not hold back when she hung out with other guys, always causing Xiao Zhuozi to be jealous. Xiao Zhuozi and Song Anchen were good friends, and Song Anchen had many girls that liked him but he refused to interact with any of the girls. The women that were around Song Anchen wanted to get close to him but could not. Thus, they would often make use of Xiao Zhuozi to try to get close to Song Anchen. Naturally, when Zhao Jixiang saw such things, she would feel very uncomfortable. She found it unacceptable that there were so many women surrounding her boyfriend, no matter the reason. Thus, she directly broke up with him. Xiao Zhuozi on the other hand thought that she had broken up with him because she fell for someone else and thought that he was the victim. From then on, the two of them refused to acknowledge each other.
However, neither of them expected that they would be interning at the same hospital after they graduated from university. They were even interning at the same department. They had originally wanted to continue treating each other like strangers, but they were unable to forget each other and they knew that what happened in the past was a misunderstanding. Yet the two of them were stubborn and refused to give in. That was until Xiao Zhuozi bumped into Zhao Jixiang and a man shopping. He could not stand it anymore and exploded. It was only after that he found out that it was a misunderstanding. That man was her cousin, she was accompanying her cousin to buy a gift for her aunt. However, these were all unimportant. The most important thing was that the two of them have settled their differences and were back together, as good as ever.
When Yisheng heard Zhao Jixiang’s story, she could not help laughing, “I didn’t realize that you are so devoted. You dated for one year, but could not forget about him for four years.”
Zhao Jixiang did not think that it was such a big deal, “What’s four years? Some people cling to their first partner their whole life. Yisheng, some people are just that strange. They’ll only like one person for their whole life.”
Yisheng trembled and she laughed uneasily. Zhao Jixiang had originally wanted to talk more about it but was interrupted by the bell. Yisheng said with a smile, “That’s the area you’re in charge of. Go to Ward 163 and have a look, someone pressed the bell.”
Jixiang stood up and walked out of the duty room, looking disappointed.
There was no one around at that moment. Yisheng’s eyes that had been twinkling lowered, and no one could see the emotions in her eyes. Some people would only like one person for their whole life. Perhaps, her whole life was already ruined. She sighed, and casually took out a ‘Medical Care’ book from the drawer to flip through. She rested her head in one hand and flipped the book with her other hand. The rate at which she was flipping through the book was extremely fast. She was just skimming through it.
Suddenly, another bell rang. She looked up to check. It was still Zhao Jixiang’s area, but Zhao Jixiang had yet to return, so naturally, she went instead.
When she walked to Ward G31, it was a private ward, which was known as a high-class ward. Yisheng knocked on the door but no one opened it. She was stunned, could it be that the patient’s condition worsened? She scared herself with those thoughts and pushed the door open, but was startled by the sight in front of her.
The patient was about seventeen to eighteen years old, he had gauze tied on his head, and he was eating popcorn as he crossed his legs and shook them. He was holding a magazine in one hand and was enjoying himself. He was a little rascal-like boy who did not look like he was feeling uncomfortable and needed help. Yisheng was slightly angry, “Mister, you shouldn’t joke around like this.”
The man who was completely absorbed in whatever he was doing finally moved his gaze from the magazine to glance at her, saying in slight shock, “Oh, a nurse came?”
Yisheng tried her best to keep calm. She said, “You rang the bell just now.”
“I was just bored, so I rang it randomly. I didn’t expect that the nurses would really come when I call. The service attitude of this hospital is not bad,” He suddenly jumped up from the bed and sat on the edge of the bed, “Sister Nurse, I’m so bored, come and chat with me.”
“Since you’re fine, I’ll leave now,” She could not be bothered to pay attention to this sort of patient that had nothing better to do. She was about to turn around when that boy suddenly rolled on the bed and yelled, “It hurts, I’m in so much pain.”
Yisheng stopped her movements and gritted her teeth. She turned around and reluctantly walked to the bedside, glaring at the troublemaker, “Which part of your body is hurting?”
“It hurts here,” He pointed at his heart, “My heart is so painful, Sister Nurse is ignoring me.”
Yisheng smiled slyly, narrowing her eyes and patting his cheek. After that, she started to pinch his cheeks roughly. The boy was yelping due to Yisheng’s sudden attack.
“Remember, nurses only take care of sick patients, not bored patients,” After she said that, Yisheng tossed her hair and left, not even turning her head back once. She left a stunned boy holding the cheeks that she had patted, dazed.
When Yisheng returned to the duty room, she saw that the duty room had another person. Zhao Jixiang was sitting on Xiao Zhuozi’s thigh and removing the skin of an apple. Yisheng did not know whether she should enter the room or leave and hesitated. She then gritted her teeth and decided to walk in without caring.
“Hi, Xiao Zhuozi,” Yisheng greeted normally, and Xiao Zhuozi was stunned that someone had arrived.
“Yisheng, where have you been? A few bells were ringing in your area. Doctor Song said that you should go there quickly when you come back,” Zhao Jixiang acted as if no one was there, continuing to peel her apples and was even very considerate, shoving some apple slices to Xiao Zhuozi for him to eat.
“Why didn’t you go?”
“Doctor Song is not interested in me. He specifically said your name and asked you to go,” Zhao Jixiang sniffed, looking sad.
Xiao Zhuozi pinched her arm, gritted his teeth, and said, “You can go if you want to, I’ll help you talk to him.”
“I only have you in my heart, darling, come here, eat some peaches,” Zhao Jixiang hugged him, sweetly acting cute towards him. Xiao Zhuozi opened his lips to eat the fruits she passed him, Zhao Jixiang acting cute obviously worked very well on him. Yisheng saw how nauseatingly sweet they were acting and could not help but tremble, goosebumps all over her skin. There were many ways to deal with this solution, but the best method was to leave.
When she arrived at Ward 37, she stood at the door for a while and saw someone wearing a white coat doing a physical examination through the door. Why was she so tragic? They even had the same shift. She gritted her teeth and lightly knocked on the door before she opened it, walking in. At that moment, Song Anchen turned around to look at her, giving her instructions, “Get the blood pressure monitor.”
Yisheng nodded her head and instantly left. As expected, he did not treat the ‘forced kiss’ from a few days ago as something serious. Why did she still care about it? Yisheng hit her own head. It was all her fault for overthinking things.
Yisheng was continuously ordered around by Song Anchen, for example, he would ask her to get a blood pressure machine, or the case file of the patient, and after that, he would ask her to get a thermometer. Yisheng would normally bring everything around because these were medical items that were necessary for physical examinations. However, she was distracted and did not enter the correct state. When Song Anchen finally lost his patience with her because he had to keep giving her instructions for her to do things, he finally frowned, and criticized severely, “You are trained in nursing. Shouldn’t you know that as a nurse, your job is to help the doctor and not cause additional trouble for the doctor?”
She gritted her teeth and glared at him angrily, “I’m sorry, I’m not as outstanding as you.”
Song Anchen took a deep breath and no longer paid any attention to her, continuing to do the physical examination for the patient. Yisheng did not want to continue standing there and getting despised by Song Anchen. She instantly turned around and left, returning to the entrance of the duty room. She just happened to see Zhao Jixiang and Xiao Zhuozi flirting and kissing. She walked back out, not wanting to disturb them. She wandered back and forth in the corridor until she happened to meet Song Anchen, who had finished the physical examinations. The two of them met eyes for a moment. Yisheng wanted to completely ignore him and walk off.
However, a certain someone did not allow her wish to come through. At the moment she walked past him, he grabbed her shoulder.
“Ye Yisheng, do you have something against me?” Song Anchen showed his handsome face and even flashed her his trademark smile.
Yisheng struggled slightly and broke free. Obviously, Song Anchen did not intend to hold on tightly and not let her go. Yisheng smiled in response, “How could it be? Doctor Song is the elite, I should be worshipping you, why would I have something against you?”
“Is that so?” His slender eyes narrowed into a slit and he looked at her mischievously, “I’ll give you a ride home tonight.”
“There’s no need!” She objected instantly without hesitation.
“I thought that you said that you don’t have anything against me?” He was still smiling.
Did he think that if she had no problem with him, he could give her a ride home? Yisheng did not know how to answer. If she rejected him again, he would definitely insist and say that she had something against him; If she agreed, she would do it unwillingly. She hesitated for a long time before she finally agreed with much reluctance, “I’ll have to trouble Doctor Song then.”
“It’s no trouble,” Song Anchen smiled and prepared to leave before he suddenly thought of something. “It seems that our shifts are the same. In the future, I can send you back, seeing that you’ve called me ‘Little Brother Song’ for so many years.”
“…” What sort of logic is that?
“Could it be that you don’t know? In the schedule, we’re on duty at the same time,” He gave her a brilliant smile.
“…” She really wanted to die at this moment. How could it be so coincidental?
“Alright, you can continue with your work,” He walked off. He left behind Yisheng, who was still standing there like a fool. She suddenly felt that she could not deal with the consequences of calling him ‘Little Brother Song’ for so many years.
