Chapter 382: The Emergency Rescue Room
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Instead of returning to her own room, Wen Xinya stayed in the backyard. Upon hearing the ruckus in the living room, an ominous feeling filled her and she hurriedly scurried towards the living room.
Upon sight of Old Mr. Wen lying motionlessly on the ground and Wen Haowen appearing extremely flustered and lost, she hurriedly proceeded to push Wen Haowen away. She then began pressing down on his Renzhong pressure point.
Noticing that Old Mr. Wen was still unconscious despite Wen Xinya’s attempt at helping him regain his consciousness using acupuncture, Wen Haowen was suddenly overwhelmed with fear and terror. A look of dismay formed on his face.
He shivered all of a sudden and recalled the scene of Mo Yunyao going into premature labor fifteen years ago after finding out about his affair with Ning Shuqian. Back then, he stared at Mo Yunyao’s lifeless body while she lied in a pool of blood. He was engulfed by panic, fear, terror, anxiety, and all sorts of emotions that drowned him. He had committed a sin that left him feeling ashamed for the rest of his life.
He then happened to find out that Mo Yunyao had passed away in labor when he was at the hospital for a prenatal checkup with Ning Shuqian.
He would forever remember the sight of Mo Yunyao covered in blood and staring at him while appearing ghastly and pale.
She was choking with sobs and spluttering. “I… am… dying! You and… Ning Shuqian… may be together… with each other! But… you must… treat my daughter well. Or else, you shall die a horrible death!”
He was completely horrified by her insidious stare. She had gathered every last bit of energy within her to say her last words. With each word, her face grew increasingly pale. By the time she completed her sentence, she was already breathing heavily and rapidly. Finally, she stopped.
A cold chill was sent down his spine and he felt like he was getting goosebumps.
Mo Yunyao had always been a soft-spoken and well-mannered woman who possessed demureness, elegance, and poise. She was also benevolent and would never speak any evil. Yet, her last words were incredibly hair-raising, and he couldn’t help but be terrorized and intimidated.
Today… the same thing happened. However, it was his father.
Old Mr. Wen did not show any signs of regaining his consciousness at all, despise Wen Xinya adding pressure to his acupuncture point.
At this moment, she recalled all the medical techniques that she had learned from Grandpa Du and hurriedly proceeded to press his acupuncture points. However, he was still unconscious and she finally discovered that her grandfather was in critical condition. “What are you waiting for? Hurry and send Grandpa to the hospital!”
Wen Haowen snapped out of his trance and rushed to his car.
Old Mr. Wen was sent to the emergency unit of the hospital while Wen Xinya waited outside the door and Wen Haowen proceeded to settle the administrative procedures.
Wen Xinya sat on the bench outside the emergency rescue room, feeling cold and clammy from head to toe. She was ill at ease and consumed by fear. In her previous lifetime, her grandfather had been in the pink of health throughout the time that she was alive.
In this lifetime, lots of things and events turned out differently from the previous lifetime and she was not confident of controlling them at all, for her destiny was beyond her control.
Recalling how Old Mr. Wen did not respond to her acupuncture, she thought to herself,
She dared not imagine any further.
Two hours later, the doctor finally walked out of the operating room.
Wen Haowen hurriedly rushed forward to ask about Old Mr. Wen’s condition. “Doctor, how’s my father’s condition? Is he alright?”
Ever since his father was sent to the hospital, his mind was flooded with images of Mo Yunyao. He could not stop his imagination from running wild and was on the verge of despair.
The doctor removed his mask and said to Wen Haowen, “Old Mr. Wen has just been overly agitated. That’s why he became unconscious. Fortunately, he managed to be rescued in time and is already out of danger. However, remember not to let him get so angry again.”
Wen Haowen and Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief. Wen Haowen’s palms were sweaty and he felt much more at ease.
The doctor continued, “Old Mr. Wen’s life may be out of danger now, but he still has to stay behind for observation. I’ll put him through a physical examination again later.”
Wen Xinya hurriedly thanked. “Thank you, Doctor Li!”
Doctor Li smiled and said, “You’re welcome. It’s only my duty.”
After the doctor left, Old Mr. Wen was sent to the VIP ward. At the same time, a nurse walked out and said, “The patient has already come to and he’d like to see his granddaughter, Wen Xinya.”
Wen Haowen ignored her words and insisted on going in to check on his condition.
Wen Xinya zoomed forward and said, “Father, Grandpa has just come to, he can’t take any further agitation. Please don’t see him yet. Let Grandpa get a grip on his emotions!”
Wen Haowen glowered at Wen Haowen with bloodshot eyes. “Get lost. What rights have you got to stop me from looking at your grandfather? Who do you think you are?”
Wen Xinya straightened her back and stopped him from proceeding. “I’m not trying to stop you from seeing Grandpa, but he’s just been resuscitated and I don’t think he wants to see you now.”
Wen Haowen pushed Wen Xinya away and barked. “Get lost. I must go in today!”
“Father!” Wen Xinya screeched. Staring at him sternly, she continued, “If you’re going to be stubborn and insist on going inside, will you be able to bear the consequences should something happen to Grandpa?”
Wen Haowen instinctively took a step back. Keeping his eyes fixed on her, he questioned, “How dare you threaten me?”
Remaining calm and composed, Wen Xinya said, “I wouldn’t dare to. I’m just worried about Grandpa. Please spare a thought for your father. Father, I know you’re worried and eager to see Grandpa, but I’ll let him know later so that he can prepare himself mentally. It’d be more appropriate than you barging in without warning now. Don’t you think so?”
Wen Haowen could not help but agree with her. However, he was infuriated to hear that Old Mr. Wen wanted to see Wen Xinya instead of him. His resentment towards the two of them grew deeper.
After managing to convince Wen Haowen, Wen Xinya turned around and entered the ward.
