Chapter 57: It’s Finally Today (2)
There are no doctors in the orphanage. Ms. Li knows a little about medical treatment. After listening to Lin Xin’s description, she followed her with a stethoscope to Lin Xinyu’s residence. After checking Lin Xinyu’s body, she told Lin Xin that he was overworked on top of originally having an unhealthy body, causing the fainting fit.
Lin Xin finally let go of her worry, asking a few questions regarding heart disease and sending Mother Li away with peace of mind.
Ms. Li walked a few steps outside the door and turned back to Lin Xin.
“His illness can’t be cured in an instant. You know the orphanage funds are limited.”
“The quickest way to help Lin Xinyu is finding a person who can provide financial aid for heart surgery. He has congenital heart disease and needs to go to a big hospital for a checkup, dragging the matter on like this isn’t possible.”
In the past six months, Lin Xin watched his body gradually become better and thought that she could wait a few more years, wait for her current figure to get bigger, and at the age of sixteen she’d apply for an ID certificate to make money and give him his heart surgery.
Reality waits for no one. Especially earlier, when he fainted, Lin Xin felt uncontrollable powerlessness and lifelessness.
Just like when her father and mother suddenly left her. She didn’t have any idea of what to do at all.
She won’t allow this to happen again.
Ms. Li saw her brooding and paused before saying, “As a matter of fact, I have a very good suggestion to make.”
Lin Xin asked, “What suggestion?”
Ms. Li said, “There’s a well-off man interested in adopting children your age, a boy and a girl. Particularly, Lin Xinyu and yourself.”
Lin Xin couldn’t believe that there would be such a great coincidence, she asked, “How is he?”
Ms. Li said, “Come with me, I will show you the details.”
Lin Xin followed Mother Li to her office, where Ms. Li handed her a folder containing the information.
Lin Xin felt somewhat heavy after looking through it, deliberating whether or not to agree.
Ms. Li said, “I’ve known him for a long time, both his personality and temperament are excellent. My friend has a good heart, he’s definitely not ill-intentioned. After you’ve gone, you only need to play the role of a good son and daughter.”
“You will be able to attend school in S City, and more importantly, is that he’s a doctor, the hospital’s deputy head, making it easier to give Xinyu treatment.”
The last words stirred Lin Xin’s heart, she asked, “Why us?”
Mother Li explained, “He wants a pair of closely bonded children your age, resembling brother and sister. As the smartest, you’re the most suitable.”
The reason why Mother Li came to this orphanage is not known to Lin Xin. However, she’s indeed a good administrator, merely relying on Xiao Tian’s dolefully small backing to support the orphanage’s costs.
Mother Li transformed this place into a venue for the rich to show off, displaying the children’s loneliness in front of them, giving them a chance to donate and satisfy their vanity.
In this fashion, Ms. Li won investments and then utilized the money to shelter more lonely children.
Lin Xin disagreed with her approach and felt that everything was too commercialized.
Afraid that Lin Xinyu would be contaminated with the bad atmosphere, whenever the rich came to the orphanage to show “concern”, she would take Lin Xinyu to hide far away.
This was all seen by Mother Li, but she never said anything. Whatever the other children needed were provided for them the same, and she’d pay special attention to Lin Xinyu.
Every half a month, a doctor would be beckoned for Lin Xinyu’s periodical checkup.
Lin Xin can see from her eyes that she truly loves children and treats the orphans here as her own.
Lin Xin decided to give it a try, regardless of whether or not the foster family was as nice as Mother Li described. At present, they must leave using the fastest means to S City and find the best doctor for Lin Xinyu’s treatment. That’s what really matters.
Lin Xinyu’s body won’t allow her to wait any longer.
After Lin Xinyu woke up, she got the information and explained everything to him.
Lin Xinyu always listened to anything she said, her decision was his decision. Lin Xin very quickly gave Mother Li their answer, and the person who was to adopt them came the next day.
In the folder given by Ms. Li, Lin Xin saw the adopter’s resume.
Cheng Qingrong: Male, aged 46, graduated from S Medical College, senior physician, has been a medical practitioner for 20 years and occupies the deputy head’s post in S City’s Second Public Hospital.
This world overlaps too much with her original world. She remembers that the Second Public Hospital in S City was famous for heart surgery, which is one of the reasons why she complied with Ms. Li.
Cheng Qingrong drove an ordinary Santana. He looks ten years older than his actual age, wearing a pair of handcrafted shoes and a black and gray cotton and linen suit.
His back is a bit camel-like as if pressured for a long while, not able to stand straight because of the degree of curvature. From afar, he looks like a grandfather who practices Tai Chi in the square.
His hands were the only clue to his occupation. No nails remained in his entirely clean fingers and each fingertip emitted matching power. When his hand hung down, it still seemed to pinch a needle.
