Chapter 128 Here Came the Bearer of the Silk Banner!
“What’s my next move?”
The middle-aged man thought about it and then said with expectations, “I know I don’t have many years to live. I hope I can do more good things during my lifetime to make up for my sins. I wish I can help more people.”
“I’ll keep making money. I’m going to keep donating to kids who don’t have the money to go to school and sick kids. They are the hope of the future of society and also my hope.”
Fang Qiu said no more and continued to heal him in silence.
Although he did not show many emotions, he was deeply touched inside.
People could be evil or good.
Good and evil could be transformed in an instant.
Good was a force coming from the heart. It could take on anything and change everything. As long as there was good, even lousy land could also grow the most beautiful flowers!
Lotus flowers grew in the mud!
Buddhas came into being in the secular world!
As long as a person did good deeds, no one could stop him!
Many people, however, took the wrong road due to a slight error in thought. Many prayed that these people could mend their ways.
The middle-aged man went on.
Fang Qiu continued to heal him quickly.
His hands stopped moving.
Fang Qiu took a deep breath and said, “Your spine is completely back in place. But for the next month, you must rest well and not move.”
“My life is valueless, and I have no time to rest.”
The middle-aged man stood up and shook his head, saying, “Thank you, doctor.”
With that, he stooped and bowed deeply to Fang Qiu.
“I also thank you for helping the poor students in the mountainous areas.”
Fang Qiu immediately took one step back and bowed deeply to him.
Fang Qiu’s movement startled the middle-aged man.
He said hurriedly with some panic, “That’s what I should do. I dare not accept any thanks.”
Fang Qiu smiled.
“How about this?”
He said, looking at the middle-aged man, “I’ll waive the cost of your treatment.”
As he spoke, he took out fifty yuan from the drawer of the diagnostic table and handed it to the other party.
“You can’t do that.”
The middle-aged man shook his head and said, “It’s perfectly justified that it costs money to see a doctor. Thank you!”
After that, he turned back, ready to go.
“Can I have your contact information?”
Fang Qiu asked.
“I don’t have contact information.”
The middle-aged man smiled awkwardly.
“Then where do you live?”
Fang Qiu continued to ask.
“I live… live under Guangming Bridge in the west of the city.”
Fang Qiu was shocked.
“Under the bridge?”
It didn’t occur to Fang Qiu that the other party would live under the bridge. The man worked himself to death for three years and earned 150,000 yuan, but he didn’t even have a place to live. He would rather live under the bridge than rent a house for several hundred yuan a month.
He gave away every penny.
A trace of unknown bitterness and shock welled up in Fang Qiu without any reason.
“Fine, I’ll visit you when I’m free.”
Lest the man should feel embarrassed, Fang Qiu said with a forced smile.
“No, no, my place is dirty.”
The middle-aged man quickly waved his hands and said, “That’s not the right place for you to go, and I’m fine. I know you’re a good man, thank you.”
He then turned and left.
Standing in front of the diagnostic table and looking at the middle-aged man’s back, Fang Qiu said nothing for a long time.
The middle-aged man taught him a lesson.
A mind-blowing class!
As the door of Fang Qiu’s consulting room opened, Han Zhen and the intern, who had been sitting in the waiting area, looked up immediately.
A middle-aged man, dressed in rags and somewhat dirty, caught their eye.
Seeing this person, Han Zhen first felt surprised and then secretly breathed a deep sigh of relief.
In his opinion, this patient was either a scavenger or a laborer at the bottom.
Neither would this kind of person vote nor knew how to vote.
A thought came to his mind.
Immediately, he turned his head and motioned the intern aside to follow and see if the patient would vote for Fang Qiu.
The intern received the instruction.
He immediately got up and walked into the same elevator as the patient.
Three minutes later.
The elevator rang when it arrived.
With a smile on his face, the intern trotted all the way to Han Zhen and whispered beside him, “No vote. The tramp didn’t know there was such a thing as voting and left the hospital directly.”
Han Zhen smiled.
He was relieved.
He was finally relieved of what he had been worrying about for so long.
Although his victory was not honorable, that was an irreversible fact after all. He wanted the result, not the process.
Getting up, Han Zhen smiled and took a look at the consulting room of Fang Qiu, ready to leave.
The intern smiled and nodded.
“Aren’t you going to visit Dr. Xiao Fang?”
Cao Ze, who had also been waiting aside, asked curiously.
Han Zhen shook his head and smiled proudly. “The result is already clear. I don’t want to be an eyesore to Dr. Xiao Fang. After all, he has already lost. He’ll be embarrassed if I go there, so I’d better not do that.”
Cao Ze raised his eyebrows.
He felt a little unhappy.
Why was Han Zhen so shameless?
Although Cao Ze personally did not care about the victory or defeat between Han Zhen and Fang Qiu, Fang Qiu represented the orthopedics department on the seventh floor after all. Han Zhen mocked not only Fang Qiu, but also the orthopedics department. As a member of the orthopedics department, Cao Ze was not happy. However, he couldn’t say much. After all, there was a gap between his status and that of Han Zhen.
Han Zhen turned around with a smile.
The intern followed behind him fawningly.
At that very moment.
The elevator rang.
Before they could reach the elevator, the door opened.
The next moment.
A crowd of people came streaming out of the elevator.
The leader was a middle-aged man in a well-worn suit who looked very energetic.
The man was holding a silk banner with a yellow border and a red background.
“Where is Dr. Xiao Fang?”
The leader bumped headfirst into Han Zhen and the intern and asked anxiously, “Has he gone yet?”
The two were stunned.
The other side.
Cao Ze came forward at once and asked, “Why are you looking for Dr. Xiao Fang?”
However, he shot a glance at the silk banner.
“Tell me first if Dr. Xiao Fang has gone.”
The middle-aged man looked anxiously at Cao Ze as he asked.
Cao Ze answered.
The middle-aged man breathed a sigh of relief.
The seven or eight people behind him also laughed in succession.
“Yes, we made it.”
“Yeah, I thought Dr. Xiao Fang was gone.”
“Dr. Xiao Fang is dedicated.”
A group of people laughed and talked.
Cao Ze swept around carefully. The more he looked at them, the more familiar they seemed to him. He asked uncertainly, “Are you all the drivers who came to see the doctor this afternoon?”
The crowd nodded.
Cao Ze again set his eyes on the banner in the leader’s hands.
He was stunned.
Could it be that these people came here especially to send Fang Qiu a banner?
Cao Ze was not alone.
Beside him, Han Zhen thought of this as well.
He was no fool.
These people came for Fang Qiu with a banner. The situation was already clear.
Han Zhen’s face suddenly darkened as he thought of the fact that there were people who sent Fang Qiu a banner though Fang Qiu had only worked for a few days.
After a deep trance in the consulting room, Fang Qiu breathed softly, took off his white coat, and walked out.
Just as he walked out of the consulting room, he stopped.
He looked ahead and saw that there were so many people in the waiting area in the middle of the corridor. He was immediately puzzled.
“Dr. Xiao Fang is coming out!”
There was a shout in the crowd.
This group of drivers turned at once and gathered around Fang Qiu excitedly.
Looking at the crowd, Fang Qiu was confused.
“It’s good that you haven’t left yet, Dr. Xiao Fang! We managed to arrive here in time!”
The leader said with a smile as he walked up to Fang Qiu, “We have come specially to present you with a banner to thank you for curing us.”
“I’m a doctor. Curing people is my job. It’s what I should do.”
Fang Qiu said politely.
“There are so many doctors in the world. We old drivers got occupational diseases many years ago, but no doctor could cure us. Dr. Xiao Fang, you’re different. You really have great skills, and you really consider us patients. We admire you and appreciate you!” said the leader, shaking his head and waving his hand.
“Yes, Dr. Xiao Fang, you are a good doctor!”
“This is the first time I’ve met such a good doctor as Dr. Xiao Fang.”
“I’ve been to so many hospitals, but no doctor has cured me of my old illnesses. However, you cured me at once. Your medical skills are amazing. Please receive the banner!”
The crowd echoed each other.
Fang Qiu was a little bit embarrassed.
It was the first time he had experienced anything like this.
“Dr. Xiao Fang, please take it!”
The middle-aged man (leader) lifted the banner in his hands and handed it to Fang Qiu, saying, “On behalf of all old drivers in Jiangjing, I present this banner to you and thank you for curing us.”
Fang Qiu muttered to himself.
For a moment, he did not know whether to take it or not.
“Dr. Xiao Fang, this banner was specially made by us. It was made in a hurry, and we arrived here when you were off work. But we didn’t expect that you are still here. It’s God’s will. You must take it.”
“You must take it.”
“If you don’t take it, who else dares to take a banner in this world?”
“Yes, you must take it, Dr. Xiao Fang.”
The crowd stepped forward to speak.
Cao Ze looked at this scene aside and felt anxious.
These people sent Fang Qiu a banner with good intention. Why didn’t he take it?
If he didn’t take it, these people would feel that they were not respected. Moreover, how nice and dignified it was to take the banner and hang it in the consulting room!
This time, however, Cao Ze really admired Fang Qiu.
What did it mean to have the chance to receive a banner from someone else?
It was not just others’ approval of one’s medical skills but also of one’s medical ethics!
The most important thing was…
How old was Fang Qiu?
Furthermore, he was not a doctor yet, just an assistant physician.
While he was at school, he worked part-time in a hospital and was presented with a banner. This was a miracle!
How many people in the hospital could do that?
At least, Cao Ze had never seen one.
Best of all, a trainee nurse received a thank-you note from a patient. This matter was spread all over the hospital, and she was given a commendation.
But this was nothing compared to presenting a banner!
