Returning to ’90s, She Became Famous In Major Surgical Fields - Chapter 9
There Is Always Something Better!
Xie’s family had breakfast at six o’clock in the morning.
Xie Zhangrong asked his wife: “You took Yingying to ask your cousin, what happened?”
Sun Rongfang recalled their last night’s experience, she was simply unwilling to answer her husband’s question.#pleasereadthischapteratfanstranslations.com
Looking at the expression on his wife’s face, Xie Changrong looked like he had been expecting it, and said: “Didn’t I say it earlier? Rather than putting your hope in Yingying to become a doctor, it would be better to place it on your son.”
Last night Zhou Ruomei and Ding Ruohai also said these words, saying that the chances of a woman being a surgeon is almost zero. Surgeons sound cool, while others see physicians as nothing out of ordinary.
Sun Rongfang picked up her chopsticks: “Eat, eat.” As she said, she put another egg in the bowl of her son who was still in elementary school next to her.
Xie Wanying has long been accustomed to the scene in front of her. That year, the elders insisted her mother on having another son regardless of her old age, even if she was fined or dismissed from her work.
The Xie family can’t be without grandchildren, especially without a male heir to the family line alive. This was the attitude of her father and the whole Xie family, her mother had no other choice than to be obliged for marital harmony.#pleasereadthischapteratfanstranslations.com
Xie Wanying got a bunch of awards from her elementary school. In the end, the only thing that she gained was her fathers ridicule, “Unfortunately, she is a woman and has no future.”
The problem is that a group of people around her, whether it be her parents’ colleagues or relatives and friends, said the same thing: “Raising a daughter is not equal to raising a son.”
Even her educated aunt and her husband thought the same “Women can’t hold a scalpel, only men have a chance.”
The phone rang. Xie Changrong got up to answer the phone, and said to his wife: “It was my dad..”
Grandpa Xie advised his son,”I’ve inquired, let Ying Ying go to the Teachers College. It’s best for a woman to be a teacher.”
Hearing this, Xie Changrong became happier and said to his wishful wife and daughter: “See, my dad also said the same.”
Sun Rongfang “slapped” her chopsticks. She was angry that she couldn’t eat anymore and went to the balcony to dry her clothes.
Perhaps, her mother once wanted to get rid of all these constraints, but she had no ability but to rely on her daughter. She bought a bag of Sunkist oranges for a hundred dollars, but her cousin who had a degree despised women like her.
Stuffing the bun into her mouth, Xie Wanying picked up her school bag and walked to the door of her house, opening it. She pushed her bicycle out and rode it.
The National College Entrance Examination was approaching. In the late June and early July’s temperature, the early morning sun has been very sunny. School students rode their bicycles to school under the big sun, and the road was bustling. Jinqiao Senior High School where Xie Wanying attended ranked first in Songyuan City.
It is precisely because of her daughter studying in such a good school that Sun Rongfang had a dream for her daughter’s future. It’s just that Zhou Ruomei’s words last night revealed a cruel fact:
There is always something better!
Songyuan City is not the provincial capital, but just a second-rate prefecture-level city in the province. If the top 100 candidates are compared across the province, their score will definitely not even be counted among the thousands of candidates. The college entrance examination is not just compared with the candidates in your own city, but also compared with the candidates across the country.
Even so, what Zhou Ruomei said last night was definitely over the top, intentionally hitting her and her daughter.
The results of the mock exam do not represent the college entrance examination.
Many candidates do well in the mock exams, but the same students get an awful result during the National College Entrance Examination. Also some get normal results during the mock exams but get a high score in the National College Entrance Examination.
Xie Wanying recalled her previous life. At that time, she was really frightened by her aunt’s words, so when she filled her admission process, she filled the second-rate medical school’s major in medical laboratory technology .
