Chapter 219 - Getting Out The Same Way You Got In
The dean was one of the higher-ups at the hospital- it went without saying that he knew who Guan Xin was… She was Guan Xuemin’s granddaughter, daughter of one of the shareholders! A lower ranking doctor might not know about that, but the dean was no low ranking doctor! No one would want to cross a girl with a background like that.
Up until that point, the dean was still trying to figure out exactly how close with Guan Xuemin this Lin Yi was… That was a factor that directly affected the seriousness of the situation. The whole thing would blow over if they just knew each other… A closer relationship, on the other hand, meant that Guan Xuemin, whether intentional or not, might’ve made the dean look bad in front of Mister Qin…
And out of nowhere, it turned out that Guan Xuemin’s granddaughter knew Lin Yi- it meant that Lin Yi was close with Guan Xuemin’s whole family!!
Guan Xin had finished up her work, and started walking around without really a purpose in mind, just wondering if she’d get to bump into Lin Yi. She hadn’t asked him which room he was in, too.
A sweet smile formed on her lips with a spark of joy when she heard Lin Yi call out to her. “Lin Yi- I was just wondering if there was anything I could help you with.”
“Oh. Nothing now- I just took care of it.” Lin Yi said as he eyed the dean.
Guan Xin wasn’t quite sure how to continue the conversation when she saw a girl as pretty as her standing beside Lin Yi, disappointed. “Is this your… girlfriend?”
“No, no, I’ve got nothing to do with him……” Lin Yi didn’t even have a chance to speak when Tang Yin jumped out in self defense.
“Oh.” Guan Xin relaxed with a sigh. “Lin Yi, give me your phone number- I still hadn’t thanked you for last time yet. I’ll treat you after work.”
Lin Yi didn’t mind- he told her his phone number, and Guan Xin dialed him up to get her phone number to Lin Yi as well. Tang Yin, on the other hand, was frowning- Had Lin Yi helped this girl before? She started regretting clarifying her relationship with Lin Yi that quickly… What was the rush?
This dude was pretty lucky with the ladies, it seemed, bumping into a pretty nurse all of a sudden! Tang Yin continued moving, down-spirited as she quickened her steps.
Guan Xin was a bit older than Tang Yin, and more mature as well- she couldn’t help but smile at Tang Yin’s reaction. “I think your friend’s getting jealous. I’ll be going then- call me when you’re free.”
“Ah……” Lin Yi smiled at that. “Yeah, keep in touch.”
Guan Xin had only wanted to come see Lin Yi for a bit- she hadn’t a clue what she was supposed to do after really bumping into him.
She sighed as she watched Lin Yi walking away with Tang Yin, wondering at the same time what she was even sighing for…
In a high-class hospital room was Zhao Guangdong, who was peeling a mandarin orange for his boss. “How’s the room, Chairman Zou? Not much different from a five-star hotel, right?”
“Yeah. Not bad, Guangdong- didn’t think you’d have connections in the hospital! I’ve underestimated you.” Chairman Zou said. “Looks like I’ll have to promote you!”
“Heh heh, it’s nothing, it’s nothing! I’m just a social man, good with people, friends everywhere! They just give me face, that’s all!” Guangdong said with a laugh.
“That’s right, Chairman Zou! My Guangdong has a lot of friends, if nothing else!” The woman with heavy makeup chimed in. “There was this idiot from earlier asking for a high-class hospital room… the dean didn’t so much as look at him! All my Guangdong had to do was bring his friend in, and here’s the room!”
“Who are you calling an idiot?” Xiaobo said angrily as he pushed the door open, his finger pointing at the woman.
“Oh? That’s right, I’m talking about you! What’re you going to do about it, coming all the way here? Unhappy with how things turned out? Should we call security? I’ll count to three- get out of our sights!” The woman said, reaching for the button at the bed.
“That’s right- the idiots are the ones getting out. You guys can leave now.” Lin Yi said as he followed Xiaobo into the room. “Hey, idiots- should we call security?”
“What is the meaning of this? Who are these people?” Chairman Zou said a little unhappily as he looked at the intruders.
“Chairman Zou, I’ll get security right now!” Guangdong wasn’t a brave man, but he was a prideful one.
“No need for that! This room is theirs now!” The dean said with a sigh- these people weren’t joking around, barging in and spitting at the occupants like that… There was no salvaging this mess now.
The dean had wanted to explain his situation to Guangdong beforehand, get them to leave nicely… There was no point to that now. Whatever happened, it was simply a certainty that he had to be on Lin Yi’s side.
“Hear that?” Xiaobo’s cocky levels started skyrocketing as he pointed at Zhao Guangdong. “Get out the same way you got in!!”
Xiaobo was quoting what Lin Yi had said, but he didn’t care- there wasn’t anything wrong with using the boss’ words. He thought it was a really powerful sentence.
Guangdong’s face changed instantly upon hearing the dean’s words- not paying any attention to Xiaobo, he tried to talk to the dean, to no avail.
They were in the hospital- the dean’s territory. He wasn’t influential enough to be standing on equal ground with the dean, too, and had to plead his case with a confused smile on his face. “Mister Ma, hadn’t we talked about this earlier?”
“They were the ones who came first- it’s a simple rule.” The dean was starting to get impatient- he didn’t want to keep Lin Yi waiting. He waved a dismissive hand to Guangdong. “Alright, you three pack up and move to a double room- I have everything arranged.”
“But, Mister Ma…… For the sake of Doctor Xiaoliao… Our Chairman Zou is here, too……” Guangdong didn’t know why the dean had changed his mind all of a sudden, but he knew that the chairman wouldn’t be pleased if he had to move out of the room like that, especially after all that boasting he just did…
Guangdong was trying to figure something out when Chairman Zou spoke up. “Mister Ma, is it? I’m Zou Tiandi, chairman of Tiandi Industries, close friends with Director Sun of the Health Department.”
Songshan’s First Hospital was a municipal hospital, and it wasn’t under the Department of Health… Yet the two were in the same category, and no one in the hospital wanted to cross those in the health department. After all, the director of the health department had to have connections in the Bureau of Health, definitely not someone you’d want to piss of for nothing.
But the dean didn’t care anymore- he’d rather piss the director off than cross Guan Xuemin!!
