At this moment, I had no time to talk to Lu Yuhan.
I can feel a gaze behind me frozen thousands of miles away.
Standing still, his back is already a little cold.
Xiangli Mou didn’t care, and after speaking, he took the sketchbook in front of him and went outside.
While I was still standing, I heard the sound of leather shoes rubbing the ground from behind.
Immediately afterwards, I saw Norven White passing me, walking to Xiangli Mou, and said politely, “Mr. Mou, this competition is organized by us. We have a responsibility to send everyone back safely, so she can’t Go with you.”
“Why?” Xiangli Mou raised his head and looked at Norven White, “You mean, she can’t ensure safety if she walks with me?”
Norven White did not shy away.
Xiangli Mou stood still, looked at Norven White, and laughed, “I said young man, don’t you think I am a fifty-something old man, what else would you do to her?”
“I didn’t mean that, but this competition is our company…”
“Don’t be company or company. Yesterday you saw me holding her together, and your eyes fired.” Xiangli Mou interrupted Norven White, squinting his eyes and said, “I admit I like it, I don’t want her to go with me, it’s so hard to say it. Isn’t there any arrogance in front of feelings.”
I was stunned for a few words to Xiangli Mou.
Norven White looked at him and was silent for a long time, but just said, “This is a rule, she can’t go with you.”
Did not admit his feelings for me.
Maybe he has no feelings for me.
“That’s it.” Xiangli Mou nodded, “Since you insist that it is a rule, then I won’t take her away.”
Maybe it’s anger.
I walked to Xiangli Mou and said, “Teacher Mou, when I return to Flipvilla, I will definitely contact you.”
“it is good.”
Xiangli Mou nodded.
Norven White looked at me, his eyes seemed to breathe fire!
I am too lazy to care.
Go back to the house for yourself.
It was already past 2 o’clock in this meeting. I thought that Xiangli Mou said he would leave at three o’clock. To try my luck, I stood at the parking lot at the entrance of the resort at exactly three o’clock.
Sure enough, he saw Sheng Fei and Xiangli Mou were there.
There was a male waiter nearby to help carry the luggage.
I rushed over, “Teacher Mou, thank you for pointing me yesterday.”
“It’s okay, I was on a whim.” Xiangli Mou looked at me, “Why didn’t you bring anything?”
“Luggage! I thought you were going to go with me.”
So he thought so?
I quickly said, “I’ll go with my colleagues tomorrow, after all, everyone is here together.”
“Let’s go” Xiangli Mou didn’t force him, just said, “I think Qingtian, the boss, is awkward. I don’t know what I think. I’m afraid you won’t be able to do it long under his hands. If you have any difficulties, come to me at any time.”
After he finished speaking, Sheng Fei became very interested on the side, “Very old man, in recent years you have been so simple, I have rarely seen you so caring about anyone.”
“Hey, I’m getting old and half-hearted. I can’t bear to lose my skill.”
Xiangli Mou said casually.
I was a little puzzled.
Does the meaning of Xiangli Mou mean…
Want to accept me as an apprentice?
That’s not what it means…
No matter how bold I am, I dare not think so.
But what he meant just now seems to be that way.
When I was struggling to ask if I should ask, I heard footsteps behind me, and then I heard someone shouting behind me, “Mr. Mou.”
It’s Ye Ze.
I looked back and saw Ye Ze trotting here not far away.
Not far behind him, someone also walked in our direction.
I could see the unhappy expression on his face all this far away.
Even with some anger.
Mo Xiangli laughed at him, “Hey, here we are.”
Ye Ze came over, looked at me, and said embarrassedly, “Miss Rhodes, why are you here?”
“I’m here to send Teacher Mou.”
I spoke to Ye Ze politely.
Just to be polite, Norven White has already walked to me, black eyes swept at me coldly, and asked the same question as Ye Ze, “Why are you here.”
I also returned it with the same answer.
“The judge is the organizer’s job, when is your turn?” Norven White seemed to be quite dissatisfied with my behavior.
Before I frightened him, the next to Xiangli Mou smiled and shook his head, “Oh, I never expected that I am an old man, and I can make people jealous.”
After speaking, the surroundings immediately fell into an awkward atmosphere.
Anyone who understands knows what he means.
I also understand Yi Norven White’s possessiveness, which would make him jealous.
Sheng Fei smiled awkwardly, “Okay, scheming, let’s go, otherwise we won’t catch the plane.”
Xiangli Mou took off his sunglasses from the collar and put them on his eyes.
Turning his head to look at Norven White, pointing at him and saying, “Young people, there are flowers that can be broken, and you can’t wait for them to be broken without flowers.”
“Mr. Mou, you should go now.”
Norven White stood there with the same expression.
It seems that he was not moved by this sentence at all.
Xiangli Mou looked at him and shook his head helplessly, “All right, old man, I suffered a lot when I was young, so I kindly advise you, since you don’t like listening, then treat me as nosy.”
After speaking, he got into the car and closed the door.
When Sheng Fei got in the car, the car started and left.
Seeing the car leaving, I turned around and prepared to go back to the room. Just a few steps, Norven White walked up to me and said, “If I don’t come, are you going to go with him.”
“Mr White thinks too much.” I shrugged, “I’m here to send Teacher Sendmou. After all, I’m an employee of Qingtian. Although this competition is only the third prize, there is a bonus of 100,000 yuan. I haven’t got it yet. , I dare not disobey you.”
“One hundred thousand? Are you rare in that one hundred thousand?”
Norven White’s voice came from his head, although it was a bit cold, but it was not difficult to hear the sullenness in the middle.
I smiled helplessly, “I’m missing, I’m missing, I’m not the same as you, Mr. White, you have millions of dollars in business, and you’re not the same as Julia Rhodes. I don’t want to do nothing, just ask a man. Ask for money.”
Norven White was slightly silent.
It took a long time to speak, “If you are short of money, tell me. This is not what you asked me for, but I am willing to give it to you.”
“Mr. White, no need. I have hands and feet, and I will make money.” I thought about it, and then said, “It’s just that I hope Mr. White understands that all the money I earn is made by my own hands. Please don’t speculate and leave me a way out.”
When I finished speaking, Norven White, who was standing next to me, obviously paused.
This time, I really decided to leave.
Isn’t it Norven White? Isn’t it just love for more than ten years.
He treats me badly, so I can’t put a hot face on a cold butt.
Early the next morning, I followed my colleagues and left by plane. Although Julia Rhodes falsely invited me and them back by private jet, I still refused.
I used to think that taking a private jet was great.
But I also know that the world does not belong to me.
After getting off the plane, I found that there were very few call records in my phone.
Except for Jiang Rhodes’s, it is the real estate company’s.
I first called Jiang Rhodes and talked about the situation these few days before calling the real estate company.
They were so moved that they cried when they received my call.
Said that many people have seen the house.
One of them said that they are willing to pay the full amount immediately.
This is definitely the best.
I made an appointment with the intermediary company when I could, and the intermediary hung up and contacted the buyer who was willing to pay the full amount.
Return to me soon and set the time.
I went home, put down my luggage, changed my clothes, and went straight to the agency.
When I got to the agency, I saw a familiar person as soon as I entered.
How could she be here, wouldn’t…
When I was puzzled, the person from the intermediary came over to say hello, “Miss Rhodes, you are here, let me introduce to you, this is the buyer, Ms. Lan.”
Flipvilla is so big and there are so many people. I never expected that the person who wanted to buy my house was Lanquan.
Lan Quan was also a little surprised, “Miss Rhodes, is it you who wants to sell the house?”
“Yeah.” I nodded.
Seeing our greetings, the agent immediately said, “Oh, do you know each other? That’s great, it shouldn’t be too late, let’s set out now to inspect the house!”
Let’s go to my house together.
Lanquan is still the same as before, wearing a lady’s long dress, and his demeanor is elegant that I can’t match.
On the way, he asked me, “Ms. Rhodes, no matter the location of this community, the property, the room type is also scientific, almost no one sells the house, I consulted for a long time and no one sold it, why did you sell it.”
“I need money urgently.”
Lanquan has a gentle personality and a gentle voice, giving people a feeling of being approachable.
She asked me, and I didn’t hide it.
Lan Quan did not continue to question.
The atmosphere was a little embarrassing, I asked, “Is Miss Lan buying a house for investment?”
“Investment? No, I have one…” Lanquan paused when he said that, as if after thinking about it, he said, “Cousin, I have been abroad. I have plans to return to China for development in recent years. I’m afraid he will not come back. Let’s find one for him first.”
There is no suitable place to live, so look for one first.
This sparse and ordinary tone does not seem to be talking about a ten million property.
It’s like just talking about a rental house or a package.
But this is all other people’s business, and what I have to do is to get the ten million dollars.
Arrived at the house.
Lan Quan saw the suitcase in the corner at first glance and asked me, “Miss Rhodes still lives here?”
“No! I’ll move out in a few days.”
I thought Lanquan would mind.
Unexpectedly, she said, “My cousin will not be back soon, even if I buy it, Miss Rhodes doesn’t have to rush to move.”
When the intermediary heard this, he smiled, “Oh, acquaintances are easy to talk.”
Although Lanquan said so, I can’t do that, “I will move out as soon as possible.”
Because the buyer is Blue Spring, it went smoothly.
I didn’t need any furniture, and there was no dispute. Lanquan paid the money immediately, we signed the contract, and went to the Real Estate Bureau to transfer the ownership in the afternoon.
Lan Quan left, and the intermediary helped me contact a company that rents out hotel apartments.
They have just one room and one living room. Although the price is a little higher, the furniture is complete, and the water and electricity grids are all set up. They only need to pay on a monthly basis.
Convenient than ordinary homestay.
I finished the house non-stop and decided to move on Sunday.
After a day off, and going to work the next day, I found Tang Ruo from the company address book and called, but her phone turned off.
At this time, Deng Qi called me to his office.
Satisfied and said, “Jia Rhodes, I thought you were going to be the bottom, but I didn’t expect you to get third, not bad, not bad!”
I exchanged a few words with him, found a space and asked, “Mr. Deng, can I ask you, what is Tang Ruo’s number? I followed the company address book and it showed an empty number.”
“Tang Ruo?” Deng Qi touched his chin and thought for a while, “I heard that she seemed to have retired, and then resigned when she came back.”
“Yes, I saw their boss again, and I am very sorry about this.” Speaking of him, Deng Qi looked at me with gossip, “What happened to you there, why did she come back early and resigned? ?”
“It’s okay.” I was worthless for Tang Ruo.
I will not say more about her.
Because the company was handed over before, I now go to talk about customers again, and my work is still relatively idle.
I looked at the 14 million in my account.
After careful calculation, Rhodes Ci’s hospitalization fee plus the ventilator, nursing fees, etc. cost more than 20,000 yuan a day.
The bulk of this is the high ward fees of Sacred Heart Hospital.
Fourteen million looks like a lot, but in fact two years are not enough!
What should we do after two years?
This matter must be discussed with the Rhodes family.
I made an appointment with Zain Rhodes on the big phone, and Rhodes Zhaozhi met in a coffee shop at night.
Although the two people did not want to be instigated by a junior of mine, Rhodes Zhaozhi had the handle in my hands, and I told Zain Rhodes that I could pay.
In the evening, both of them came.
I entered the coffee shop and saw that two people had arrived, so I said first, “I sold the house in [Flipvilla No. 1].”
“What!?” After I finished speaking, Rhodes Zhaozhi exploded. “That house is worth a lot of money. My mother bought it for you. If you sell the house now, the money must be distributed to us.”
I knew Rhodes Zhaozhi was the face.
“Listen to her to finish.” Although Zain Rhodes looked bad, he knew that I would not sell the house for nothing.
I went on to say, “I will use this money to pay my grandma’s hospitalization and forbearance.”
“Are you crazy?” Rhodes Zhaozhi was displeased when he heard it, “How much do you cost? Give us business and make money. Seeing your grandma is a waste. She is dead!”
I looked up, looked at her, and asked, “That’s my grandma, isn’t it your mother?”
Rhodes Zhaozhi’s face instantly turned red, and he was very upset and said, “Yes, but so what? Our living talents are the most important!”
“Jia Rhodes.” Zain Rhodes looked at me, “How much did you sell that house?”
I tell the truth
“This money is your filial piety to pay your grandma’s hospitalization fees, but now your aunt and I still owe money in the company. It is impossible to help. After all, once we go bankrupt, all employees will lose their jobs.” Zain Qinxian Make your position clear and continue to say, “You pay all the money by yourself, at most two years. What will you do after two years?”
“After two years, your business still cannot turn around?”
I came today to ask Zain Rhodes and Rhodes Zhaozhi to talk about this matter.
I understand that the situation is not good at first, but it will not be good after two years?
Rhodes Zhaozhi immediately said, “With the current market, let alone two years, ten years I think will be enough.”
“We will definitely not be able to turn around one million in a month in two years.”
One sentence for two people.
A clear position-
My heart is cold.
“How about that?” Rhodes Zhaozhi looked at Zain Rhodes, “Transfer to mom! Transfer to a second-class hospital, where the price of ICU will definitely not be so high. Then we can hire an expensive nurse.”
Hehe, their abacus is good.
I paid for the hospitalization, and they paid for the nursing staff.
One month’s money for a nursing worker is only two days of hospitalization.
But I have no choice. I don’t want Rhodes Ci to be taken off the ventilator so early.
Zain Rhodes agreed with this point raised by Rhodes Zhaozhi.
The two immediately started to call and settled on a second-class hospital not far from the Sacred Heart Hospital.
Here icu plus others, it costs about 5k a day.
Compared with the Sacred Heart, one heaven and one underground.
The next day, they made a transfer for Rhodes Ci.
I have seen in the past that the conditions here are really incomparable to the conditions of the Sacred Heart, and it can even be described in two words, but I have no choice.
Only here, I have no worries.
On Sunday, I contacted the moving company to move.
Although the new home is small, I feel very warm.
Because it is managed by a professional apartment company, the rooms are very clean and I don’t even need to clean them.
Last time I was in the resort, I saw Xiangli Mou’s painting, which moved me deeply.
When I was free in the afternoon, I would buy some painting tools near the Flipvilla Academy of Fine Arts, hoping to pick up the paintings that I had left behind for a long time.
There is a saying that people have to walk around more to have surprises.
I took the subway to the Academy of Fine Arts. As soon as I got out of the station, I saw a car and stopped at the intersection. One car got off and I recognized it at a glance–
Why is she here?
Soon, I saw another person in the driving seat.
I have only met this person not long ago and he is very familiar.
It was Norven White’s assistant, and maybe the former assistant, Li Kai.
Fearing that they would see me, I immediately stepped back and hid beside the subway entrance.
I saw the two people hug each other immediately.
Li Kai handed the keys to the car watcher, and the two of them walked into the hotel in front of them.
My eyes were quick and I took a picture with my phone.
Wait until the filming is over before looking up.
It’s actually a love hotel.
This kind of hotel was introduced from Japan, and it is specially provided for couples to open a room. Each room in the hotel has a different decoration style.
Can play various play.
What can I do in a place like this? it goes without saying.
But what I never expected is that these two people actually have a leg?
I can’t help but recall all kinds of things before.
More and more, it seems that Li Kai and Julia Rhodes are not completely unconnected, especially long, long ago.
When I went to Qingtian, I heard him make a call…
The content, now that I think about it, if it is called Julia Rhodes, it is not impossible.
I looked up and took a photo of the hotel’s name and sent it to Norven White’s mailbox.
I think that no matter how generous Norven White is, no matter how deep his affection for Julia Rhodes is, he can’t tolerate the green grassland above his head.
I didn’t continue to follow, bought drawing tools and went home.
I don’t know why, but I feel very good and want to eat hot pot.
I called Jiang Rhodes, but unfortunately she was not in Flipvilla.
I found a Mala Tang restaurant alone to eat, halfway through the meal, I received a call from Zain Rhodes.
He hesitated, because I was worried about what happened to Rhodes Ci, so I picked it up.
“Jia Rhodes, have you finished your meal?”
As soon as the phone was answered, Zain Rhodes’s voice came out over there.
His voice sounded a bit vicissitudes of life, and his mood was very depressed.
The tone did not sound like the arrogant arrogance it used to be.
I was a little suspicious, looking at the Mala Tang in front of me, “Well, I’m eating.”
“Oh, let’s tomorrow. Tomorrow night, I booked a box at Haisheng Restaurant. Our family hasn’t been together for a long time.”
Zain Rhodes’s current voice sounded so kind.
Thinking of what I did during the day, it was impossible to eat this meal. I refused, “I’m sorry, Mr. Rhodes, how can a wild boy who grew up in an orphanage like me go to eat in that place.”
“Don’t say that.” Zain Rhodes’s voice was full of apologetics, “I feel embarrassed that you have worked so hard about your grandma this time, because as you said, she is your grandma and my mother. I just want to thank you.”
To be honest, if someone else told me that, I would believe it.
But Zain Rhodes’s words, I don’t even believe in punctuation.
“I’m sorry, I’m very busy, I’m afraid it’s no good to consume.” I said, looking down at the Mala Tang in front of me, “The meal is cold, I will hang up first.”
Just hang up.
There was no opportunity for Zain Rhodes to speak.
I thought it would be fine.
As a result, the next day, as soon as I left the company after get off work, I saw Zain Rhodes standing at the door.
His face is much more haggard than I saw him the other day.
When he saw me, he hurried up and said, “Jia Rhodes, I have already booked that box, so it’s not easy to return.”
Have you invited me to the door?
Ever since I first learned that Zain Rhodes is my father, I have never been treated like this.
I looked at him with a smile on his face, “Mr. Rhodes, I won’t eat any more food, just tell me if you have anything to do.”
Zain Rhodes seemed embarrassed.
Finally, I was called to a coffee shop.
When the coffee we ordered came up, Zain Rhodes said, “Jia Rhodes, that’s it. Look, your grandma also transferred to the second-class hospital. It only costs more than 100,000 yuan a month. You still save a lot of house sellers in your pocket. Money?”
Having said that, I immediately understood why he had come to me so many times and since he lowered his worth.
After all, I just miss my money.
“It’s okay.” I pushed the coffee in front of me, took out a piece of 100 yuan from my bag and put it on the table, and said, “That money is for my grandma to be hospitalized. No one will borrow it, of course. I will not move myself.”
After speaking, get up and leave.
At the door, Zain Rhodes also chased it out and said sadly, “Jia Rhodes, I didn’t ask you to ask for it, but to ask you to borrow it. The company’s funds are really not working well recently.”
“Sorry, it’s impossible.” I refused categorically.
Grandma is now hundreds of thousands a month. To be honest, it is impossible for me to make so much.
So these money must not be moved!
“Mr. Rhodes, you still call me Jia Rhodes, you have severed the parent-child relationship with me, have you forgotten?”
I just finished.
Zain Rhodes raised his hand!
Before I could react, I slapped my face with a slap, and then cursed, “Jia Rhodes, don’t be shameless! That house was bought with the Rhodes family’s money, and you must vomit it to me today. !”
The half of my face I was beaten by Zain Rhodes was numb, and I was not surprised at all about his change.
Reluctantly stood up straight, covered half of his face and said, “This is all cameras. If you want to stay in jail, just continue.”
“Give me the money!” Zain Rhodes scolded me, “I tell you, if our company is ruined, I will not only pull out your grandma’s ventilator, but I will also pull you to death!”
At this time, my cheek is a little hot and painful, it may be swollen.
I know that Zain Rhodes actually hadn’t cared about Rhodes Ci’s life and death long ago. The reason why he is still procrastinating is that he doesn’t want to bear the reputation of being unfilial.
I put my hand down and looked at him without fear, “You made the company pornographic by yourself, because you have no abilities. As for my grandma’s ventilator, if you dare to move, I will never stop with you!”
People, if you have money, you will become confident.
My bank account is more than ten million, so I am not afraid of him at all.
After speaking, he turned and left, ignoring whether Zain Rhodes was jumping anxiously behind me.
After I got home, I packed my things.
The new home is small, but very warm, which makes me feel at home.
I was sitting on the bay window, covering my face with an ice bag, looking at the street view outside the window, and the piles of things in my head.
I have posted pictures of Julia Rhodes and Li Kai for 2 days, but Norven White has no reaction to that photo?
Could he even stand a green hat?
Where is Tang Ruo, I want to find her, and I want to find out with her what is going on.
There is also a gift to seek.
Although I said to contact him that day, I didn’t have his contact information. He was a very mysterious person. I definitely couldn’t ask, and it was impossible to ask Norven White.
And Norven White.
I want to put him down and go my own way.
Regarding Zain Rhodes, I thought he would not look for me again.
Unexpectedly, after only three days, Zain Rhodes would reappear at the door of our company.
I saw him take a detour.
Zain Rhodes followed and said with a smile on his face, “Jia Rhodes, is your face still hurting? It was my father who was wrong a few days ago. My father was impulsive. After returning, my father regretted it too.”
His tone this time is better than last time.
Open your mouth and a dad, shut your mouth and a dad.
It’s like coaxing a child’s father.
It’s a pity that when I grow up, I won’t be fooled by him again.
I changed my direction and he followed, “Jia Rhodes, Dad really apologized to you this time. Dad has done so many things that sadden you before. If you don’t borrow Dad’s money, Dad understands. do not blame you.”
Zain Rhodes has one dad.
With four or five dads in one sentence, I sounded disgusting.
Finally couldn’t help, looking back at him, frowning and saying, “Mr. Rhodes, since you know what you have done before, don’t bother me anymore, otherwise I will call the police!”
“Don’t!” Zain Rhodes didn’t have an angry expression on his face when he heard what I said, “I really want to reconcile with you this time. I now want to understand. You stayed in the orphanage for so long, and neither It’s our fault to care about your past.”
“So, your mother and I, and Julia, are all waiting for you at home. This time we will eat at home and cook what you love!”
I walked ahead, and Zain Rhodes read it from behind like a fly.
Compared with the machismo before him, his temperament has changed drastically.
He said that I like to eat. I finally stood up and turned to him and asked him, “Mr. Rhodes, let me ask you, what do I like to eat?”
Haha, in the past three years, they never asked me what I like to eat.
Install here now? !
Sure enough, after I asked Zain Rhodes, I was stunned and hesitated, “I…I don’t know, it was all prepared by your mother.”
“Then call Ms. Fan, what do I like to eat?”
I thought Zain Rhodes would refuse.
As a result, he actually got out the phone and started dialing.
I didn’t stop it, just let him call.
When the phone was connected, Zain Rhodes asked Lumia Fan, “What kind of dishes are Jia Rhodes’s favorite dishes you prepared?”
After that, although I couldn’t hear Lumia Fan’s answer, I could see that Zain Rhodes’s expression had become a little awkward.
But soon, he looked at me and said, “Squirrel fish, Longjing shrimp, and…”
“Needless to say, Mr. Rhodes, these are what Julia Rhodes likes to eat, not me.”
In fact, when I asked, I had some unrealistic expectations in my heart.
But when Zain Rhodes spoke, I gave up.
Julia Rhodes can’t eat spicy dishes, so the dishes he likes are all these light dishes, and I am different. I like spicy dishes, and what I like are some spicy dishes.
I walked towards the subway entrance, Zain Rhodes chased me, apologizing and let me go.
Originally, he was like this, I should go.
But the more it goes like this, the more I feel that something is wrong, as if it’s a banquet.
I’m afraid I won’t be able to come back.
Zain Rhodes chased to the subway station. I swiped the subway card to enter. He wanted to chase, but only one person could pass through the gate at a time.
He was blocked outside and unable to enter.
The staff on the side also called him, “Sir, you can’t force it.”
It was just after get off work. There were a lot of people coming and going in and out of the subway station. I walked a few steps along the flow of people and turned my head and took a look.
Zain Rhodes was still standing at the gate, looking in my direction.
The apologetics just disappeared completely, replaced by cold and dark hatred.
A glance made me get goose bumps all over.
A bad feeling arose in my heart.
Two weeks after that day, it was calm.
Nothing happened. The days were as usual. We went to work during the day and rested at night. Jiang Rhodes came back once in the middle, and we got together.
Until one day at the end of August.
I received a call from the hospital where Rhodes Ci was located, telling me that Rhodes Ci is in danger!
I was at work at the time and was discussing the design plan with the client. After receiving a call, I quickly explained the situation to the client, packed up my things, took my laptop, and rushed to the hospital immediately.
When I arrived, Rhodes Ci had already entered the rescue room.
I went to a doctor and asked about it, only to find out that Rhodes Ci’s urinary tube had a problem. This urinary tube was not sterile and caused Rhodes Ci to be infected.
In fact, it’s not just Rhodes Ci, the whole batch of urinary catheters has problems.
But because Rhodes Ci is a vegetable, her resistance is worse than that of ordinary patients.
The immune system is destroyed, and the situation is very critical now that I will be notified.
I was scared and paralyzed.
Sitting in the corridor of the hospital, put your hands together, praying, “Don’t be wrong.”
Not long after I arrived, Rhodes Zhaozhi also arrived.
“How is mom’s situation?” Rhodes Zhaozhi grabbed me and asked.
“I don’t know.” I was upset.
Rhodes Zhaozhi got up and asked the doctor again. When he came back, he sat next to me and mumbled irritably, “This kind of broken hospital is not reliable, and the urinary tube can have problems?! If my mother has a shortcoming, I will go bankrupt. I want to sue them too!”
I squinted at Rhodes Zhaozhi.
This is not alone with the one who quarreled with turning off the ventilator before.
Rhodes Zhaozhi seemed to feel that I was looking at her and looked at me, “What do you look at, that’s my mother!”
“Then you were anxious to turn off the ventilator before?”
I exposed her mercilessly.
Rhodes Zhaozhi’s expression was a little unnatural. After struggling for a while, he sighed, “Now the Rhodes family is really not good. Mom is sick all the time, and the shareholders are all messed up. If I have money, can I not make it? If it weren’t for the company’s collapse immediately, those employees have been with us for more than ten years, and if we collapsed, they wouldn’t even have food!”
I squinted at Rhodes Zhaozhi without speaking.
She also looks at me.
As if afraid that I would not believe it, he pulled his Himalayan bag and said, “Did you look at this? Fake! It’s been sold long ago!”
With that said, show me some places in the bag.
In fact, I know nothing about the authenticity of this brand-name bag.
Thinking of Rhodes Ci’s vase being sold, I think what Rhodes Zhaozhi said is not all lies.
“So miserable?” I answered.
“No! You think it’s easy to start a company and be a boss? The policy changes day by day, and you have to deal with those officials…”
While waiting for Rhodes Ci, Rhodes Zhaozhi started complaining to me like a resentful woman about how difficult it is to do business.
I listened quietly.
Can’t help wondering, is Norven White the same?
He has always looked calm and relaxed in front of me, and he seems to have never mentioned any difficulties in business.
In my eyes, his business seems to be smooth sailing.
The light in the rescue room went out while I was driving.
The door opened, and a doctor came out pushing a car with a hanging bottle next to it, and another nurse pushing a cart with a ventilator next to it.
“How is my grandma’s situation?” I rushed to ask.
The doctor looked at me and said, “Stabilize the situation temporarily, but it depends on the patient himself whether he can overcome this barrier.”
I followed the bed, grabbed Rhodes Ci’s hand, and murmured, “Grandma, you must hold on.”
Rhodes Zhaozhi stood by, saying nothing.
That night, I went home.
But my heart has been very unsteady.
“I can stand behind you, sleepwalking like a shadow following the light…”
My phone rang, and I was awake instantly when I was asleep, so awake as if I was in the daytime!
I grabbed the phone.
Although the number above was not recorded, I also recognized the number of Rhodes Ci’s hospital.
“Hello.” I answered the phone, my heart pounding.
At this time, the doctor’s voice came from the phone, “Hello, this is the second hospital…” After the doctor reported his home, he said a lot in very tactful professional terms on the phone, and finally said, ” But the patient still passed away at 3:27:42 in the morning domestic time…”
After that, I didn’t hear clearly.
I just feel my ears humming.
I can’t predict anything, and rushed to the door when I went out!
However, it is midnight, no matter whether you wait directly or use the taxi-hailing software, you can’t get on the bus!
How to do!
How to do!
I looked at the taxi-hailing app that had been waiting for more than ten minutes, and in desperation, I started running towards the hospital.
The hospital where Rhodes Ci is located is nearly ten kilometers away from my community.
If I just rely on running, I am afraid I will break my leg.
But I can’t estimate that much!
I ran all the way, because I didn’t have enough exercise, I didn’t run for a while, and I lost strength.
But the ride-hailing software still did not answer.
I still run hard.
It’s really evil.
Tonight, there is not even a car on the road.
The sky is also black, with no stars and no moon.
I don’t know how long I have been running. Finally, I saw two bright lights piercing through the dark streets and coming fast in my direction!
At that moment, without thinking about anything, I rushed towards the front of the car!
It was too late, the car only saw me when it approached!
The harsh brake sound was particularly harsh on this lonely night.
But the car still didn’t stop, and hit me with a “bang”, causing me to fly back!
Fortunately, he braked and I was not hit too far.
The man quickly got out of the car and asked, “Are you all right?”
Although my leg hurts a bit, I don’t have time to think about myself at this time. I limped forward and said sadly, “Sir, please, take me to the second hospital.”
When I approached the driver.
He called me first, “Jia Rhodes?”
Who would have thought that in the huge Flipvilla, the person I met on this night was actually Zhaoming White.
He bent over to check my leg, and asked more concerned, “Are you okay? You are so late…”
“Can you send me to the second hospital?” I interrupted him, “Please!”
“Okay, get in the car.”
Zhaoming White didn’t say much, and opened the co-pilot door for me.
Sitting in the car, I said gratefully, “I really didn’t expect to meet you here, I was almost desperate.”
“Our hospital picked up a child who swallowed preservatives by mistake at night. The parents were very excited. I stayed to comfort the parents. The child just came out of the emergency room and transferred to the ward, and I came back.” Zhaoming White explained to me.
Maybe because of running for so long, I feel a little numb from the grief just now.
Zhaoming White seemed to see that I was not in high spirits, so he did not continue to speak.
Did not ask me why I went to the second hospital.
When I got there, I said “thank you” and rushed to the hospital.
At this time, many people stood in the hospital lobby.
In addition to Zain Rhodes, Lumia Fan, and Julia Rhodes, there are also Rhodes Zhaozhi’s husband and son, and some other Rhodes family members.
There are doctors and police.
I saw Rhodes Zhaozhi taking the lead from the periphery, arguing with the doctor about something.
I squeezed in and after listening carefully, I realized that Rhodes Zhaozhi was telling the doctor that Rhodes Ci’s death was a medical accident in their hospital, so he had to lose money.
Because of the police regulation, there is no loud quarrel.
Just in theory.
I looked around and saw a flatbed truck parked in the corridor at the corner, with a person lying on it, covered with white cloth.
Everyone was arguing about compensation, but Rhodes Ci’s corpse was left alone and unattended.
I walked over, stood between the doctor and Rhodes Zhaozhi, and said to her, “Grandma is dead! Why can’t you think about the funeral first, so you should care about compensation at this time?”
After I finished speaking, everyone looked at me.
The corner of Rhodes Zhaozhi’s mouth was almost pulled to his chin, and his eyes widened, “What are you talking about? Compensation? Are you crazy? I don’t say it at this time. Why wait until someone is cremated? Will you have evidence by then?”
“Go aside, don’t make trouble here!”
Rhodes Zhaozhi pushed me aside without saying anything.
Looking up, I saw the Rhodes family around me all looking at me with different expressions, but from their behavior, I knew that they were all waiting for the hospital to lose money, and then I hoped to get a share.
