Chapter 13 – Trouble (1)
Su Jinbei only stayed for a night at the hotel, and the next day she asked her manager and assistant to go through with the hospitalization procedure, while she snuck in to lay down in the ward.
“Celebrity Su, you’re finally back, I missed you to death.” Lin Qingwei exaggerated, “Why do you keep running around, what if you hurt your leg again?”
“Something came up.” Su Jinbei raised an eyebrow at him, “Didn’t I come back? I’ll definitely fully recover before leaving this time.”
“That’s a must, by the way, you didn’t tell your family about you leaving the hospital yesterday? They came to see you but you weren’t here.”
Su Jinbei coughed twice, “Oh, you saw, what did they say?”
“I didn’t say anything, but Senior Brother talked with your family for a long time.”
“Dr. Zhou?” Su Jinbei was surprised, “What did he say?”
“How would I know, they talked alone. Your relative was very enthusiastic about Dr. Zhou and left happily after talking with Senior Brother. Did you not meet up after?”
“They left happily, you say?” Su Jinbei leaned on the pillow and tapped on the bedside table with one hand. “Where’s Dr. Zhou, I’ll go look for him.”
“He should be done with his surgery right about now.”
Su Jinbei nodded and said to her assistant who was arranging her luggage, “Xiao Wai, help me push the wheelchair over.”
“Alright, Jinbei jie.”
Lin Qingwei, “Oh, you mean you’re going now?”
“Yeah.” Su Jinbei was helped by her assistant to sit in a wheelchair. “Xiaowei, why haven’t you left, are you that free?”
“I don’t have much to do today. Let’s go, I will push you over to find him.”
So, Su Jinbei was pushed out of the ward by Lin Qingwei.
The VIP wards had relatively few people, plus Su Jinbei was in disguise, so she did not attract people’s attention.
“Xiaowei, why do you call Dr. Zhou ‘Senior Brother’?” She was bored so Su Jinbei started the topic.
“Because Senior Brother and I graduated from the same university, I’m two cohorts after him,” Lin Qingwei said. “Senior Brother was really popular in school, so I recognized him as soon as I arrived at this hospital.”
“Popular?” Su Jinbei murmured, “Makes sense, there’s no way he wouldn’t be looking like that.”
“It’s not entirely because of his appearance, but because of his ability. Senior Brother was always first in his class, anyway, he was the apple of every teacher’s eye.”
“Ha, he does look very capable, although his personality is a little strange.”
Lin Qingwei smiled, “That’s true, Senior Brother doesn’t talk much, and his temperament is cold. I haven’t seen him interested in anything other than the medical field. But it doesn’t really affect his popularity, huh.”
“Yeah.” Su Jinbei came to express interest, “Does he have a lot of suitors?”
“Of course…” Lin Qingwei suddenly gave a sudden smile on his face, “Hey, look, here comes another one.”
Su Jinbei looked forward along Lin Qingwei’s line of sight. Sure enough, a man and a woman stood facing the corner of the stairs.
The woman wore very fashionable clothes, clearly not a hospital employee, probably a patient or a family member of one.
At this moment, the woman looked at the male doctor who was clearly distracted and said timidly, “Dr. Zhou, can you give me your phone number?”
Su Jinbei stretched her neck and wanted to hear how he would respond.
Lin Qingwei looked at his indifferent Senior Brother, but shook his head sadly, “This isn’t the first time…”
Sure enough, Zhou Shiyun lived up to Lin Qingwei’s expectations and looked at the girl in an unfamiliar and uncertain manner. “Your brother’s injury is fine. If you still have questions, you can contact the hospital.”
“Then, can’t I contact you directly?”
Zhou Shiyun paused, “That should not be necessary.”
The woman bit her lip and opened up, “Dr. Zhou, I… I actually want your phone number not because of my brother, but because… because of myself.”
Zhou Shiyun was silent for a moment, “Are you sick?”
“… not sick.”
“Then what do you need my number for.”
The lady stiffened.
Not far away, Su Jinbei’s face contorted trying not to laugh. This guy was so disinterested and oblivious, is the only reason why a woman would want your number because she’s sick?
The woman spoke again, and this time she said in a huff, “Dr. Zhou, I like you, I really like you, so I want your number. I hope we can interact more in the future.”
Lin Qingwei, oh, this girl’s quite brave, I don’t know what excuse Senior Brother will use to shut her up this time.
The next second, Lin Qingwei heard Zhou Shiyun say lightly, “Oh, unfortunately, I can’t contact you more.”
“Because… I am engaged.”
The woman froze, “Wh- what.”
Zhou Shiyun was light and breezy as ever. “It may cause unnecessary trouble and may give you a bad reputation. Let’s not contact each other in private.”
The woman’s face was pale, a bad reputation… like a mistress?
She was boiling with shame and resentment… The woman glared at Zhou Shiyun and stumbled away.
Su Jinbei finally laughed out loud now, “Xiaowei, did you hear that Xiaowei, your Senior Brother is amazing.”
Lin Qingwei quickly went to cover her mouth, but it was too late.
Zhou Shiyun found them and walked towards them. Lin Qingwei was slightly embarrassed, “Senior Brother, we weren’t eavesdropping, we were just casually passing by.”
Zhou Shiyun didn’t say anything, just looked down at a certain someone who was over the moon.
Su Jinbei was still high off the previous scene, “Dr. Zhou, do you always refuse girls like this? How can you blindly get engaged?”
Zhou Shiyun, “Blindly?”
“You’re actually engaged? But Xiaowei told me that you are a single dog.”
Lin Qingwei quickly shook his head, “I said single, single! I absolutely did not say dog!”
Zhou Shiyun, “…”
Su Jinbei shook her head, “Dr. Zhou, you’re good looking but you have such a strange temper… You exhaust women’s luck.”
