Chapter 742: Ice Goddess
“This young man is too modest!”
The people laughed.
“I heard that he went to River Delta City and revived a patient who was declared dead. It caused a sensation in the medical world. Even the arrogant senior doctors were convinced!” Someone laughed.
Tang Hao smiled modestly and said, “That was only a coincidence. Oh, right, should I give you a brief examination?”
“Sure! I’m already so old, and I have a lot of minor problems. Can they be treated?”
“That’ll be easy. I guarantee that my medicine will cure you!” Tang Hao said with a smile.
“Haha! Then hurry up and take a look!”
Tang Hao checked them one by one. There was nothing major, but each one of them had minor problems that could be cured by a massage or a simple prescription.
“As expected of a divine doctor! I feel ten years younger after a massage.”
The group of people exclaimed in wonderment.
They chatted for a while more before they left. Tang Hao stood up respectfully and saw them out.
It was already past eight o’clock when he left the building.
“Are you going home today, or are you staying for a night?” General Bai asked in the car.
Tang Hao wanted to say that he would go home, but he quickly checked himself as the words were on the tip of his tongue. He remembered that Mu Xintong had said that he should visit her whenever he was in the Capital.
He had already forgotten to visit her once. If he forgot about it again, it would be very embarrassing the next time they met.
“I’ll stay for one night!” Tang Hao said.
General Bai immediately arranged accommodations for him.
Tang Hao checked out early the next morning.
It was his third time in the Capital. The first time was to treat a patient, and the second time was to hunt down someone. He had never gone around the place properly.
After strolling around for the entire morning and having lunch, he took a cab to Q University.
Tang Hao felt a little emotional as he stood in front of Q University.
Q University was the dream destination for many Huaxianese high school students. He had fantasized about earning a spot in the prestigious university once, but he did not even get the chance to take the entrance examination.
He took a light breath and prepared to walk into the campus.
Suddenly, he remembered that he did not know Mu Xintong’s class or department. He did not even have her phone number or any other contact information.
Holding his phone, Tang Hao was stunned.
Q University was so big, and there were so many students. How was he supposed to find her?
He furrowed his brows and frowned.
“Maybe next time!” Tang Hao said to himself. However, he thought for a while and decided that it would be too much of a pity if he left without trying to search for her.
“Right, she should be very famous!”
Thinking of that, Tang Hao’s eyes lit up.
Mu Xintong was very beautiful. She should be considered a beauty queen at Q University. It would be weird if she was not famous.
Beautiful women would not be able to keep a low profile in universities.
Tang Hao entered the front gate and looked around him.
Many people walked in and out of the gate. They were dressed fashionably, no different from Z University.
Tang Hao stopped a male student.
“What’s the matter?”
The boy pushed up his glasses and sized up Tang Hao.
“Um… I’m here to look for someone, but I can’t contact her right now. I wanted to ask you…”
“Oh! Looking for someone? So you’re not from Q University!”
The boy regarded Tang Hao slightly differently.
“Yeah! I’m at the Capital to meet an acquaintance!” Tang Hao said with a laugh.
“Oh! I understand. Who are you looking for?”
“Her name is Mu Xintong!” Tang Hao said.
“Oh,” the person replied. However, in the next moment, his entire body froze. His eyes widened as he shouted, “What did you say? Say that name again!”
He thought that he had misheard.
“I said, Mu Xintong!” Tang Hao was startled. He repeated the name.
The boy instantly became impatient. He shooed Tang Hao away while saying, “Go away. Leave this place at once! We’ve seen too many people like you. All of you are like flies!”
“Look at your pathetic appearance, and you think you can flirt with our Beauty Queen? Dream on!
“And you say that you’re her acquaintance? F*ck you, everyone here knows that Goddess Mu is cold to everyone, especially boys. You’re not going to fool me!”
Tang Hao was stunned again.
Seeing that Tang Hao was still standing there, he became even more impatient and yelled, “Hurry up and scram!”
Tang Hao’s expression darkened.
He had asked for directions politely, but that guy was so rude.
“I’m really here to look for her. She asked me to come,” Tang Hao said.
The boy was stunned, then he burst into laughter. His laughter became louder and louder, as though he had heard the funniest joke ever.
‘This guy is a clown! Goddess Mu asked him to come? What a braggart!
‘Would Goddess Mu ask anyone to come and look for her?
‘What a joke!’
“I say, you shouldn’t lie like that. I’ve never seen a bigger braggart than you!” The boy looked at Tang Hao disdainfully.
‘He’s most likely a lunatic!’ He thought.
Tang Hao rolled his eyes and started to get angry.
“So, do you think I’m bragging?” He smiled gently.
“You don’t say?”
“Alright, let’s make a bet!” Tang Hao’s grin became wider.
“Sure. What are the stakes?”
Tang Hao took out a thick stack of money from his backpack. It was exactly one hundred thousand yuan.
The boy’s eyes widened when he saw the money.
‘He’s a windfall tycoon?’ That thought flashed through his mind.
However, his shock turned into a sneer. “So what if he’s rich? Goddess Mu is like a glacier. Nothing in this world can melt her ice-cold heart, let alone something as vulgar as money.’
Many sons of wealthy families were enrolled in Q University, and none of them had ever succeeded in winning Goddess Mu’s heart.
In the eyes of Goddess Mu, money was as trivial as air!
To her, even men were as trivial as air. She treated everyone coldly, which was why she was also known as the Ice Goddess.
He was a lot more confident when he thought of that. “What are we betting on?”
“That’s simple. How much money do you have? Take it all out. I’ll pay you one to five if you win. How about that?” Tang Hao said.
“Take me to her now. If it’s true that she didn’t ask me to meet her, I’ll pay you five times of whatever you have. Otherwise, all your money is mine,” Tang Hao added.
The boy became excited when he heard that.
‘One to five?
‘Wow! What a windfall!’
“Sure! I’ll take on your bet!”
He was so excited that his whole body was trembling and his face turned red. Then, he emptied his pockets and gathered a few hundred yuan. He even took out the coins.
Then, he reached into his wallet and took out a debit card. “There’s a few thousand yuan in here. Is that OK?”
Tang Hao grinned and took the card.
“Here, let’s sign a contract. Then, no one can go back on their word.” Tang Hao walked to the side, took out a piece of paper, and started writing.
The boy urged him, looking extremely excited.
He calculated that he had a little more than four thousand yuan on him. If he could win five times of that, it would be more than twenty thousand yuan. That was a huge profit.
‘This guy is an idiot! He’s blinded by money!’ He looked at Tang Hao and thought happily.
