At the hospital.
Jiang Tingxu and Qiao Ran pushed the patient who had just finished the CT scan from the CT room to the department. It was then that the phone in her pocket began vibrating.
She pushed the patient with one hand and answered the phone with the other, though she had no time to see who it was from.
“Hello, this is Jiang Tingxu speaking.”
The next second, a familiar roar was heard from the other end of the line.
“Where are you? Why haven’t you arrived yet? Are your feet bound or something?”
Jiang Tingxu had few friends since her childhood and only had two girlfriends. All three of them were in the same class since junior high up until they graduated from senior high.
One of them was Su Muxue, the daughter of the Su family. The Su family were family friends with the Mo family as well.
The other was Shen Peiyi, whose family background was not as strong as the Su family but was also quite well off.
The Shen family owned a chain of pharmacies that numbered over 200 shops throughout the entire country.
The three of them met when they were only junior high school students and did not understand a thing about status.
They ended up becoming friends simply because they clicked with each other.
After Jiang Tingxu’s initial shock, however, she quickly recalled something in her mind.
Back then, there were a couple of things that were maliciously misinterpreted and exposed. Others aside, some of that information could only be exposed by those who were close to her.
Only those who were close to Jiang Tingxu would know everything about her childhood.
She initially suspected her two best friends, but changed her mind when she realized that the possibility was slim.
It was slim because the two of them were always incensed whenever they saw Mo Boyuan. They cursed him a million times and hoped that he could just explode and die!
In any case, that was how she viewed it in the past.
Jiang Tingxu did not believe anyone anymore!
People could say whatever they liked, but who would know for sure what their actual thoughts were?
10 years on the battlefield made her a completely changed person.
Stupid and naïve was an understatement to describe Jiang Tingxu in the past!
“I’m very busy tonight and I won’t be able to make it, so just enjoy yourselves.” She hung up the call and continued pushing the stretcher.
Jiang Tingxu had seen the message earlier but decided not to respond to it. She had no plans to go anyway, and she had plenty of work to do in the Emergency Department too.
In the past, Jiang Tingxu would have definitely gone there even after she had worked late. After all, that was the only chance she had to see her beloved husband!
It was preposterous for a wife to only occasionally see her husband outside of the home at a party!
“Dr… Dr… Dr. Jiang?”
Beside her, Qiao Ran had been pushing the stretcher when she noticed the sudden change in Jiang Tingxu’s body language.
‘F*ck, Dr. Jiang looks so scary!’
However, she seemed to have a touch of melancholy!
Jiang Tingxu gradually snapped back to her senses after hearing Qiao Ran’s voice.
Qiao Ran shook her head instantly.
“Nothing, nothing. I was just curious. Whose call was it just now?”
Jiang Tingxu’s eyes narrowed slightly.
“Oh, a former best friend.”
‘Why would Dr. Jiang’s expression be like that if it was a best friend?
‘And her character seemed to have suddenly turned frosty too.’
Qiao Ran was no idiot. It was only natural for her to avoid asking too much about it.
They entered quietly into the elevator and the atmosphere seemed very tense.
In fact, Qiao Ran was already feeling as anxious as ants on a hot pot. She began speculating wildly and wondered if she had pushed Dr. Jiang’s buttons when asking that question.
What could she do about it?
After they got out of the elevator, returned to the department, and moved the two patients who had been diagnosed with fractures to the bed, Jiang Tingxu finally realized that something was amiss with that woman.
“Why aren’t you talking anymore?” asked.
From that day’s experience, that lady was definitely a lively and talkative woman.
Qiao Ran’s mouth twitched when that question was posed to her.
