Chapter 21: In the Meeting, I Just Smile

The beautiful woman next to him kneaded her forehead; she looked unhappy.
“Excuse me, doctors. I have something to say.” The woman’s cold voice interrupted the conversation of the masses.
“Go ahead,” the health chief listened and said with a smile.
“Have you checked the real disease of Guo Zhenghe?” She asked.
“The patient is poisoned since there are toxins in his blood,” one doctor said.
“What kind of poison?” The middle-aged man next to the woman asked. He had been silent when he entered. He was looking downing at the pile of documents and found that it was a book full of cases and diagnoses, as well as testing data. He raised his head and asked the question after he heard the response of the doctor.
“Unknown?” The woman was shocked. “Haven’t you cured a patient with a similar case already? How could you cure it if you did not know what the poison was? By accident?”
“It…” The doctors in the hospitals were speechless.
“You guys are discussing the transfer of this patient to another hospital first, instead of the reason for the poisoning. It is useless to transfer the patient to Haiqu City, Qi province or a hospital in Jing City when the diagnosis cannot even be found out.” The woman was very disappointed with the doctors.
Faced with her doubts, many experts in the conference were speechless.
“Guys, there is another question,” the middle-aged man next to the woman said. “There are two detailed cases. Based on the test results, the disease of the young man, Wang Zexiao, is almost the same as the Guo Zhenghe. So, that means that they were poisoned by the same thing. However, there was something strange in the blood test report for Wang Zexiao. What was the specification of the abnormal situation? Did you find out what exactly happened?”
“We—we tried to analyze it, but we got nothing.” The doctor who had hosted the treatment of Wang Zexiao looked down shamefully.
“So I suggest that you should go to find this Wang Zexiao and test his blood again and find out. You should also ask about what his diet was while he was in the hospital. Maybe he ate something that detoxified the poison. I also have a list of medicine you should prepare.”
The man took out a list with several rare medicines written on it.
“All of these are imported and two of them don’t exist in Haiqu City.” one doctor said as they passed the list around.
“Then prepare the ones that are present. As for the ones that don’t exist here, you can go talk with Dao City and have them prepare it.”
“Do as we ask and we won’t bother you!” The woman stood up when she finished her words and the middle-aged man followed her.
“What a bunch of idiots!” the woman said angrily as she went out.
“My lady, there’s no need to be so mad. There are many stupid things in the healthcare system. Because Zhenghe is a special person, they’ll work on a cure carefully. They’ll turn a deaf ear to common people, however,” the middle-aged man said in a low voice.
“Where are the moral ethics in medicine?” the woman raged.
“Moral ethics in medicine—that’s so rare!” the man sighed.
“The current doctors are so dishonest!”
“Let’s go to Zhenghe,” the middle-aged man said.
Soon, they were in a special ward and there was a young man lying on the bed. His face seemed to be a little green and one could tell that he was very ill.
“Zhenghe, Zhenghe?” The woman ran to the bed when she saw him. She held the hand of her younger brother with the hope that he would wake up; however, it didn’t work.
“Uncle He, what are the chances of success if he is treated by you?” she asked.
“I could treat him if he were someone else, but Zhenghe cannot be treated by me. There is only one son of the regimental commander, so there must be no failure,” the middle-aged man said after hesitation.
The woman did not force him after that.
“My lady, trust me. Although I have no way to wake Zhenghe up now, I will try my best to stop the deterioration.”
“Thank you, Uncle He.”
Songbai County, Wang Jia Village.
Several vehicles were parked in the eastern village. Many people got out of the cars and followed behind the party secretary of the county, Wang Jianli.
“Here it is.” Wang Jianli brought them to the door of a house.
“Yirong!” Wang Jianli shouted towards the house.
“Yes!” There was a response from behind the door as it squeaked open. A man in his forties walked out. “Party secretary, why do you come to see us?”
“There is something related to you that we need to talk about,” Wang Jianli said.
The group of people entered the house and Wang Yirong prepared drinks for them all.
“There’s no need to prepare us any drinks. These are all experts from town and the city and they just have something to ask you.”
“Ah!” Wang Yirong listened and sat down. He was nervous since he had no idea why these experts came to see him.
They were the doctors that just finished the conference for Guo Zhenghe.
“Is your son Wang Zexiao?”
“Ten days ago, he was poisoned, and he was a patient in the hospital in town, correct?”
“Where is your son now?”
“He’s working in town now.”
“Call him back now!” The doctor’s voice sounded mad.
“Okay, okay, I’ll call him.” Wang Yirong could see that they had something urgent to do. Although they were not very friendly, he did not care about it and just called his son to come back.
“Is there something wrong with my son?” He was not at ease when he finished the call since he recognized that they were the doctors that had treated his son in the hospital.
“There’s nothing wrong with him, but there is something that we need his help with.”
The doctors waited patiently and 20 minutes later, Wang Zexiao came back home. Wand Zexiao had a medium build—he was slim, but he looked good and healthy.
“Dad, what happened?”
“Yes. That’s him!” one of the doctors said eagerly. He met Wang Zexiao before; he was the chief doctor of the treatment for Wang Zexiao. This doctor’s name was Mr. Zhou.
“Just hurry up,” another doctor said.
One doctor took out a medicine case with equipment ready to draw blood.
“What are you doing?” Looking at the doctors’ actions, Wang Zexiao and his father were confused.
“We just have to check your body to confirm that you are indeed in good health. Will you go back to the hospital with us?”
“I am healthy, so there’s no need to check.” The attitude of Wang Zexiao shocked the doctors.
