Jiang Mucheng spoke very quietly, so Huo Ciyi couldn't hear her clearly from where he was.
All he heard was the nurse's reply. "He didn't say who he was. He just told me to say that he's an old friend, and that if you don't see him, then he'll get someone to lock the hospital down and find you. Ah... What does he look like? He's really hot!"
"As hot as... as Daniel Wu! No... No! He looks colder than him. Mm... He's got charming eyes and a faint scar in the corner of his left eye. He looks like he's got real character!"
When she said a faint scar, Jiang Mucheng suddenly walked out the door.
She walked in such a hurry that her white lab coat flew a little.
And when Huo Ciyi heard about the faint scar, he also suddenly got to his feet
As expected, Jiang Mucheng's latest research really did blow up. It got so big that the news travelled overseas.
He wasn't the only one who's attention was grabbed. It also grabbed the attention of the person he didn't want to see the most.
By the time Jiang Mucheng reached the first floor, quite a few people had gathered around the service desk. And yet, he was the first person to catch her eye.
He was at the centre of the crowd, where the service desk nurses tried to pick him up.
He obviously didn't want to reply, as he only made gestures like nodding or shaking his head in exchange.
"Yuchuan, when did you come back? Why did you just turn up at the hospital without letting me know first?"
"If I did, then would I be able to see you?"
Those words left Jiang Mucheng instantly speechless.
She glanced blankly at the man in front of her, then thought about it for a moment and changed the topic.
"You've only just come back. You must be exhausted. Would you like me to help you book a hotel room to get some rest?"
She said that because she wanted to send him on his way.
Of course, he knew that.
He reached his hand out and placed it right on Jiang Mucheng's shoulder. "No thanks. I want to spend more time with you."
Jiang Mucheng wanted to pull away from his hand, but she didn't manage to do it before she felt an intervening force do it for her.
However, she also felt the weight of another hand on her shoulder, the split-second that she relaxed.
As soon as Huo Ciyi showed up, he naturally embraced Jiang Mucheng.
"Yuchuan, you're back! Why didn't you call me, your older brother, first?"
Huo Ciyi had a smile on his face, but his eyes were completely cold and distant.
"Didn't have the time to."
Huo Yuchuang's reason was clearly made up, but he deliberately made that obvious.
Why didn't he call him first? In actuality, Huo Ciyi didn't care in the slightest.
Huo Yuchuang knew that too.
"Since you two brothers met up, I should go head back to work and let you guys catch up. I still have patients upstairs to tend to."
Jiang Mucheng wanted to speed off.
Huo Yuchuan looked like he didn't really want to talk to Huo Ciyi too much, but he didn't stop Jiang Mucheng from leaving.
Seeing as Huo Yuchuan didn't stop Jiang Mucheng, Huo Ciyi naturally didn't stop her either.
Just then, Liang Keke happened to give Huo Ciyi a call to say that she finished her tests and wanted to go home.
When Huo Ciyi took the call, he glanced at Huo Yuchuan who looked like he was getting ready to leave. Then, he quickly replied to Liang Keke on the other line with a simple, "Okay."
After he hung up, Liang Keke rushed shortly over. She pulled Huo Ciyi's hand with a hint of a smile on her face and flirtatiously followed him into the car.
Jiang Mucheng was busy in the lab for a really long time. There was bacteria in a petri dish that took up until eleven in the evening to grow. During the wait, she called someone at home, then continued to wait.
She was only able to take off her coat and leave the lab after she transferred the grown bacteria to a new petri dish and let that start to grow.
But to her surprise, just as she stepped out of the main hospital doors, she saw Huo Yuchuan again.
