Chapter 387: What a Genius!
Jiang Yao’s silence puzzled Lu Xingzhi.
“It’s fine if you don’t know,” he said.
Jiang Yao smiled. “Lu Xingzhi, you wanted to ask if I participated in Colonel Lin’s surgery, right? What is with the tactful questioning? I don’t remember connecting your colon to your brain when I operated on you!”
Lu Xingzhi was not embarrassed when his intention was exposed by Jiang Yao. He did not really understand what colons and brains had to do with himself though.
Jiang Yao was scolding him, that was all he knew.
He smiled back at her.
Jiang Yao always mentioned how good-looking he was. Maybe if he tried to seduce her with a smile, she would feel better.
What Lu Xingzhi did not know, though, was how pathetic he looked right now. He had been lying on bed for a few days without any solid food consumption. Along with the various injuries on his body, good-looking was not the right term to describe his appearance.
Jiang Yao was not mad; she could not bear to get angry at a weak patient.
“Your smile looks ugly,” Jiang Yao muttered.
She saw his smile disappear, replaced by the usual frigid look.
That was enough to crack Jiang Yao up. When she smiled, her face lit up like the warm sunshine on a cold winter’s morning, radiating warmth and beauty onto everyone in her path.
“Don’t worry about Colonel Lin’s injuries, I did the surgery all by myself and I know his condition best. Two to three months is enough for his leg to heal completely,” Jiang Yao said.
Lu Xingzhi breathed a sigh of relief. “That is good to hear! No wonder I did not see any concern on Mrs. Lin’s face.”
“They are very positive,” Jiang Yao said truthfully. Colonel Lin and Mrs. Lin trusted her fully when she said that his leg would heal in three months’ time. She was way younger than anyone in the room, but they did not discount her credibility based on her age and experience.
For the past few days, Colonel Lin and Mrs. Lin were found to be very happy in each other’s company. Some of the nurses around even mentioned how Colonel Lin managed to joke and make Mrs. Lin laugh with tears of joy.
Staying right next door, Jiang Yao could often hear their laughter permeating out of their room.
She realized that the couple was very easy-going and had little expectations. She had a feeling that even if Colonel Lin’s leg did not heal after three months, they would not blame her at all.
