Chapter 369: Three Slaps
The doors of the first operating room were suddenly flung open. Jiang Yao stood there listening to everything that was said. It was evident that she was exhausted, yet she looked at the lady that was crying like a brat with surprise written all over her face.
“So, your brother’s life is worth saving but Lu Xingzhi’s life is not?” Jiang Yao walked toward the lady and saw the document in her hand. She grabbed it and after reading it, she knew that it was a surgical consent form.
“Since Lu Xingzhi is going to die anyway, does it matter when he dies? My brother, however, is different!” Miss Lin did not realize who the woman standing in front of her was, she kept whining that her brother was discriminated against and unfairly treated.
She never would have thought that she would receive a good tight slap on the face because of what she had just said.
Jiang Yao raised her hand and went down hard. “This is for your brother. His life is in danger and yet you are here whining and complaining!”
“This is for my husband!” Jiang Yao was furious. “Listen here, my husband’s life is as valuable as your brother’s! The most severely injured person is always the first one to be sent back, especially since there is only one helicopter available! If the situation were different today, my husband would do the same thing as well!”
“This is for the doctors! You have no respect for the lives of others, only knowing how to whine and be useless. Do you know you are wasting valuable time that can be used to save more lives? You can cry however much you want but you are not going to get your brother’s leg back!”
Jiang Yao’s body trembled suddenly. Fortunately, Zhou Weiqi was observing her at the side, he swiftly caught her before she fell.
“Jiang Yao, what’s going on? How is Brother Lu?” he asked.
After spending all her energy on the three hard slaps, Jiang Yao felt weak and spoke softly when reprimanding Miss Lin. However, her imposing manner was effective in stunning and silencing Miss Lin, who stopped crying and whining.
Sometimes, a loud voice was not needed to assert dominance over an individual. Jiang Yao, whose voice was hoarse from all the crying before, stood in a fierce demeanor, wielding influence, and power.
“Make sure that nobody enters room number one! Your Brother Lu is safe now.” Jiang Yao did not know that performing an operation out of her limits was so exhausting. All she wanted to do right now was to find a place and lie down to sleep.
“Yes! I will stay here and guard the door!” Zhou Weiqi nodded.
Jiang Yao acknowledged him, and smiled at the crowd, who was shocked at her physical outburst, before entering operating room number three.
Lu Xingzhi was still in the Medical System’s lab. In case anyone were to discover the sudden disappearance of his body, she had to make sure that no one entered the room. Hearing Zhou Weiqi’s promise, Jiang Yao instinctively believed him.
“Mrs. Lu! You should not be here!” The nurse recognized Jiang Yao and tried to stop her from entering.
Jiang Yao looked at the nurse, sidestepped out of her way and walked toward the operating table.
At this moment, a few doctors were looking at the assessment report, trying to determine how best to do the amputation. They were also consoling Colonel Lin, knowing full well that an amputation was extremely difficult for a soldier to take in. Hearing the commotion outside, they were also frustrated to have met irrational family members who did not want to sign the surgical consent form.
