Chapter 68: Cured?
Translator: – – Editor: – –
Jiang Chen, alone, stood in the middle of the room and he scanned his surroundings.
The special ward, for notable guests, was filled with medical equipment, but all useless for treating rabies.
He hesitated for a moment as he wasn’t certain if there were cameras around, then Jiang Chen sighed before he reached into his pocket.
For his own security, he triggered the EMP grenade.
The faint electric noise resonated in the room as the EP screen inside his sleeves had flashed before it stabilized. With stability as the core design philosophy, it was extremely resistant to EMP. However, of course, equipment in that age was not the same as all the other electronics in the room, which have been short-circuited. These faults were hard to detect as most people would attribute instability to the voltage source.
Regardless if there were cameras or not, it would be broken by now. There was no expensive medical equipment inside this ward, so the hospital wouldn’t consider it a big deal. As to his phone, he threw it into the storage dimension immediately.
He approached the old man as he took out the D-level antibiotics. He took a deep breath before aiming it at the old man’s vein and injecting it.
He watched the red liquid enter his body as he pulled out the needle and put it in the storage dimension. The old man was already unconscious from being at the terminal stage of rabies, so he was not afraid to have his secret revealed.
Also, the D-level antibiotic has no side effects on the human body. It was evident by the fact that the remaining medicine would be cleared out from the body within an hour. Even a blood test would not detect any traces of it.
Especially no one would experiment on the second in command of the local government.
“How’s my father doing?” Seeing that Jiang Chen came out, Wang Zhiyong immediately walked up to ask.
“He’ll be okay after some sleep,” Jiang Chen smiled as he replied.
“That’s impossible.” The doctor still maintained his stance as he looked suspiciously at Jiang Chen before walking into the ward.
He didn’t believe that Jiang Chen would cure that important person’s disease. He was only worried that if he dies, even if it were not his responsibility, he would also take on some of the blame.
“Could I have your phone number? So that if father wakes up, we can express our sincere gratitude,” Wang Xinran said.
Although she still looked at Jiang Chen with suspicion, since he had already treated her father, there was nothing she could say.
[Thanking me is not the point. It is probably more of a threat to make sure I didn’t do anything wrong.] Jiang Chen obviously guessed her intention. He shrugged as he pulled out his identification card and flashed in front of her face.
If they want to know, they will find their way.
Seeing that Jiang Chen immediately pulled out his identification card, Wang Xinran felt her face burn from embarrassment. She knew that he understood her trick. He did this with good intention, but she was still suspicious till now, which was inconsiderate and unreasonable by any means.
But Wang Zhiyong who’s straightforward didn’t have any tricks, as he never liked the idea of trickery.
“No need for ID. Let’s exchange phone numbers. You’ll be my brother from now on! If anyone dares to touch you, I will go beat him up!” Wang Zhiyong pulled out his iPhone as he began to call Jiang Chen brother. With the way Jiang Chen looked, he was certain that his father would be okay.
“That’s impossible!” Suddenly, a shocked shout came from the ward.
“What’s going on?” Wang Zhiyong was confused.
“Father!” Before he understood what was happened, his sister ran into the room.
“Your father’s health is in good condition, he probably woke up already,” Jiang Chen shrugged as he said nonchalantly with a smile.
Wang Zhiyong was overjoyed when he heard the news as he thanked Jiang Chen and ran into the ward.
Jiang Chen smiled. Although this guy was reckless, just by how much he cared for his father, it was worth it to befriend him.
“Sir, what method did you use?” The doctor walked out as he had no more suspicion in his eyes, only respect.
“Secret. Sorry, but I can’t share.” Jiang Chen smiled mysteriously.
“Do you know how many people this will save if rabies can be cured? There are 55 thousand people a year who die because of this disease. If you publish this secret…” This doctor obviously was not ready to let Jiang Chen go as he started to guilt trip him, hoping Jiang Chen would reveal the secret.
But Jiang Chen being annoyed, interrupted the doctor.
“And give it to you so you can win a Nobel Prize?”
Jiang Chen’s words made the doctor’s face turn a vibrant shade of red. He did think about that.
“When it is necessary I’ll share it, with my own name.” Jiang Chen walked away, finishing the sentence.
If they wanted to thank him, he wouldn’t have to wait here. It would be straightforward for the government to find his number, especially since Wang Xinran just saw his ID.
Leaving without saying anything would leave a more memorable impression.
“Is, is this the hospital?” Wang Dehai’s eyes narrowed as he gradually woke up from unconsciousness. From the sharp edges of his face, it was evident that although he has aged, his body was healthy. But regardless of health, with a disease like rabies, he would die without the proper treatment.
“Father, you are finally awake.” Wang Xinran had tears in her eyes. She was the youngest in the family and received the most affection from her father. Her father’s weak look impacted her feel the most. But her tears were tears of happiness.
“I, didn’t I get rabies?” Wang Dehai was confused as he was ready to face death. But life played a joke on him. He looked at his disappointing son in search of an answer.
“Father, hehe, I found an ancient remedy doctor, and he cured you,” Wang Zhiyong said proudly.
An ancient remedy doctor?
Wang Dehai was so angry he almost coughed out blood. He was especially annoyed by his son’s fantasy for masters, Wushu, and martial arts, which was an embarrassment to the family. But when he remembered that he had in incurable disease, he was shocked.
[An ancient remedy doctor actually cured me?]
He looked at his most beloved daughter but what surprised him was that the answer he saw on her face was, it’s true.
“Although I don’t want to admit this, brother actually did find an ancient remedy doctor to cure you.”
Jiang Chen would be furious if he heard the words “Ancient remedy doctor”. This was advanced technology!
[Really?] Wang Dehai frowned, but then he felt relieved.
“What is there not to admit, if he cured me he cured. Even if he is an ancient remedy doctor, he is my lifesaver! How much money does he want? Give it to him.” Wang Dehai had experienced the ups and downs of life. Since he could live longer, no one would say no to his requests, especially when he was so powerful.
“Father, he doesn’t need money, that’s too lame.” Wang Zhiyong rolled his eyes. His words were always unpredictable.
Wang Dehai, of course, knew his son’s personality; he would believe anything they say.
“Go invite the person, I want to thank him personally.” Regardless, he must thank him for saving his life. Wang Dehai already was thinking that as long as it is not against his principle, he’ll do his best to meet the “ancient remedy doctor’s demand.
He was a powerful and influential politician in the country. Jiang Chen saved him. Not only did he do a favor to him, but also to the country itself.
“Okay.” Wang Zhiyong laughed as he ran outside.
Wang Dehai lied on the bed as he chatted with his daughter about what happened when he was unconscious. However, he kept thinking about the “master” that saved him. Wang Dehai was no ordinary people. He didn’t understand how did the “ancient remedy doctor” managed to save him, or who sent him here.
However, his disappointing son came back alone with a disappointed look.
“Father, he left.”
“What?” Wang Dehai was shocked.
[There really is someone who didn’t seek favors?]
“Didn’t you exchange phone number with Jiang Chen?” Wang Xinran hastily said.
“I didn’t get to. I had to check on father,” Wang Zhiyong said with disappointment in his voice.
“You, how old are you, why are you still so careless,” Wang Dehai criticized his son for a good while.
Although Wang Zhiyong was reckless, he still didn’t dare to talk back to his father. He just had to listen to his dad’s criticism.
Wang Dehai remembered that name. Though he didn’t know what his life saver looks like, it was not difficult for him to find someone in the country.
Wang Dehai, who has always been cautious, didn’t express his thoughts. He decided to wait and get an understanding of Jiang Chen’s background to see what kind of intention he had before approaching him, himself to repay the favor. For he might be a pawn sent by political enemies.
Wang Dehai closed his eyes as he made up his mind. He needed to rest. Since he had already recovered, then some change must be made in Wanghai City. Once he wakes up tomorrow, the people that tried to give the Wang family trouble will all be punished.
Although he was well into his fifties, the vibe Wang Dehai possessed was not to be undermined.
Wang Zhiyong who saw his father’s expression let out a breath of relief. He knew exactly what his father’s expression meant. A rejoiced look appeared on his face.
[Father is healthy now, a lot of people are going to be in trouble.]
He was still upset that he didn’t manage to get Jiang Chen’s number. His intention was clear. Since he did something nice for me, then I must repay him in kind.
But what he meant by repaying the favor meant taking Jiang Chen around to show off. He loved two things the most, making friends and finding trouble. Those two things usually don’t conflict with each other, but he didn’t expect Jiang Chen would leave right away.
Wang Zhiyong and Wang Dehai didn’t know that Jiang Chen didn’t leave, he was waiting in a ward nearby.
Wang Xinran, on the other hand, was more curious. She didn’t know how Jiang Chen saved her father.
Li Gangming standing in front of the door had a sour face. He could only pray that they would not remember the conflict. The look of sympathy from the other guard made him want to slap himself. Why didn’t he think before he acted?
But even if he thought it through, the consequence would probably be the same. Recklessness is contagious from being around Wang Zhiyong for so long.
