Hello, Mr. Major General - Chapter 1550 - I'm Not Worthy Of It
Chapter 1550: I’m Not Worthy Of It
Although Gu Nianzhi was mentally prepared, when she saw Lu Jin’s unassuming smile in front of her, her eyes slowly turned red with surprise.
It was as if she could release all the unspeakable grievances and frailty that she couldn’t show in front of others.
Lu Jin was shocked. He quickly walked over and asked, “Is there something wrong? Did I not perform the surgery well? That’s impossible… although I haven’t used a scalpel for many years… don’t be afraid, I’ll push you to the intensive care unit inside to have a good check-up.”
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
Something seemed to be wrong.
She was momentarily speechless. Lu Jin pressed her against the headboard of the bed that she was lying on. The wall of the headboard suddenly split open on both sides, and suddenly opened up to reveal a door opening.
Lu Jin bent down to carry her from the hospital bed and walked into the door opening at the headboard.
It turned out that there was another world here.
Gu Nianzhi stared blankly at the room that looked like a secret room. It was very big and spacious.
Above her head was a shadow-less lamp that looked like that of a hospital operating room. The walls were snow-white, and the floor was dark. A very comfortable looking hospital bed was placed against the wall of the room. The bed was surrounded by all kinds of monitoring equipment, and every one of them looked bright and shiny. The design was similar to the equipment that she had seen in the hospital. It looked like the words “upgraded high-tech edition” were engraved on it.
Lu Jin carefully placed her on the bed and quickly connected all kinds of equipment to the top of her head, her chest, and the pulse on her wrist.
The indicator lights of the equipment flashed one after another. There were red, blue, green, and orange lights.
Gu Nianzhi looked over and saw seven different colors of the indicator lights.
Lu Jin looked intently at the data from the instrument. After confirming that there was nothing wrong with her body, he breathed a sigh of relief. He smiled and said, “Fortunately, the surgery was fine. Your body is recovering.”
He then looked at Gu Nianzhi seriously. “Why did you want to cry just now? What’s wrong?”
Gu Nianzhi had completely lost all her previous emotions. She looked at Lu Jin expressionlessly and said, “… Didn’t you already test it with a machine?”
“But a machine isn’t omnipotent. “You have to know that the human body is the most sophisticated machine. From the looks of it, humans don’t have the technology to create a machine that is more sophisticated than the human body. So if there’s something wrong with your body, but my machine didn’t detect it, it’s completely possible.”
Lu Jin explained to Gu Nianzhi in a business-like manner.
Gu Nianzhi didn’t want to talk.
Lu Jin didn’t let her go and continued to ask, “Nianzhi, are you feeling unwell? Don’t be afraid, tell me, I’ll think of a way.”
It was as if no matter what it was, as long as she told him, he would be able to think of a way to solve it.
Gu Nianzhi’s emotions, which had just dissipated, returned very quickly. Her eyes gradually turned red, and she said in a low voice,”… did you perform the surgery on me?”
She had already guessed it from what he had said to himself.
But she still wanted to confirm it.
Lu Jin nodded seriously. “Of course, no one else can perform the surgery on you other than me.”
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
He sounded very arrogant.
“You don’t believe me?” Lu Jin was actually not a person who could read people’s expressions. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have a social disorder.
However, for some reason, he could instantly understand the expression on Gu Nianzhi’s face. He didn’t even need to think about it to understand what she was thinking.
Gu Nianzhi smiled faintly. “It’s not that I don’t believe you, but the world is so big. How can you be so sure that you’re the only one who can perform this kind of surgery?”
“Although it’s cruel to say this to other heart surgeons, it’s true that I’m the only one who can perform this kind of surgery. “Lu Jin didn’t seem to be angry at her for arguing with him. Instead, he explained it to her in a very academic manner, “That’s because the injury to your heart at that time was already on the verge of death for an ordinary person.”
Gu Nianzhi’s heart skipped a beat. A sharp pain made her groan.
At the same time, the instrument that monitored her heart suddenly emitted a red light. It spread across the entire room like a rainbow, forming a curved arch bridge.
Lu Jin’s expression changed. “Your chest hurts? Let me see…”
He lowered his head and operated the instrument. His fingers flew up and down as he entered commands one by one. He looked at the condition of Gu Nianzhi’s heart on the monitor.
After a while, the pain in Gu Nianzhi’s chest disappeared. Lu Jin finally stopped operating and said, “You have to control your emotions. Your heart is still very weak. It can’t beat fast and slow at times.”
Gu Nianzhi rolled her eyes. As if she could control her heartbeat?
That was a reflexive reaction, and she had just recovered from a serious injury, so she couldn’t control her emotions at all.
Lu Jin sat in front of her bed, tucked her in, and said seriously, “You really almost died this time. If it wasn’t for the fact that you were on the ventilator in time and that the bleeding stopped quickly, you wouldn’t have lasted until I came to operate on you.”
Gu Nianzhi recalled the situation at that time and finally felt a trace of lingering fear.
“… The gunshot wound you received was not a normal gunshot wound, but a anti-materiel rifle bullet. Fortunately, it was blocked by the bulletproof phone I gave you. Otherwise, you would have been torn to pieces instantly. Even a God wouldn’t have been able to save you.”
“But the anti-materiel rifle bullet was also quite powerful. All of your internal organs were affected to varying degrees. Although the anti-materiel rifle bullet was unable to penetrate the phone, it exploded. The slanted shrapnel directly penetrated your back and went deep into your body, especially your heart.”
“Under such circumstances, the level of precision required for the surgery is very high. As far as I know, no one other than me can do this. Not even a computer-operated gamma knife can do it.”
Although Lu Jin’s words were simple, Gu Nianzhi knew that the situation must have been very dangerous. Lu Jin had been in a race with the grim reaper and pulled her back from the brink of death.
Gu Nianzhi was very grateful. She blushed and said softly,”… Thank you.”
“There’s no need to thank me. It’s my duty.” Lu Jin waved his hand dismissively.
“How can you say that? No one should do such a thing for someone else.” Gu Nianzhi retorted in all seriousness, “Who am I to you? If I didn’t even say a word of thanks after receiving such a great favor, what kind of person would I be?”
Lu Jin was tongue-tied. He kept repeating the same sentence, but in the end, he did not have the courage to say it.
He stood up and wanted to leave, but it was inappropriate to leave Gu Nianzhi here alone.
This kind of complex expression of emotions was even more difficult for him to deal with than the most difficult high-energy physics problem.
He was at his wit’s end and could not go out. He simply turned around and stood facing the wall.
It was as if he didn’t look at Gu Nianzhi, he wouldn’t have to face the problems he couldn’t face.
Gu Nianzhi looked at Lu Jin’s tall and slender back, and her brows gradually furrowed.
She had countless questions in her mind, but she didn’t expect Lu Jin to choose to avoid them.
He didn’t want to answer her questions?
Or was she wrong? Was this person not her real father, Gu Xiangwen?
Gu Nianzhi was indescribably disappointed when she thought of Gu Xiangwen, who had died in the submarine in the other world.
She was even a little envious of Little Nianzhi of the other side.
Although that Little Nianzhi had died at the age of twelve, at least before that, she had had a happier and more complete life than she had.
This was truly a case of “we all have our difficulties, so don’t be envious of others”.
Gu Nianzhi sighed softly and closed her eyes.
The room was so quiet that she couldn’t even hear the sound of breathing.
Gu Nianzhi had only wanted to close her eyes to rest, but she hadn’t expected the room to be so quiet. What she didn’t know was that the oxygen, temperature, and humidity in the room had been specially adjusted. It was very suitable for a patient like her to recuperate.
It didn’t take long for her to fall asleep.
Lu Jin only dared to turn around to look at her after she had fallen asleep.
Lu Jin walked over to her bed and sat down. He rested his chin on his hands and looked at her quietly. He sat down like a statue without blinking.
Gu Nianzhi woke up from hunger.
Her stomach was growling. She pursed her lips, which were slightly chapped. She wanted to drink water and eat something.
She opened her eyes and saw darkness. It wasn’t pure darkness, but a smoky grey with a dim light.
She saw Lu Jin sitting in front of her bed. He rested his chin on his hands and leaned forward slightly. She did not know how long he had been in this position.
“You’re awake?”cLu Jin said in surprise. He reached out to turn on the lights in the room.
The lights gradually turned on from dark to bright. It wasn’ot exciting at all.
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes quickly adapted to the experience of going from dark to bright.
“What time is it?” Gu Nianzhi turned to look at the time.
“Eight o’clock at night.” Lu Jin showed her his watch. “Do you want to eat something?”
She hadn’t eaten for almost two days and two nights, so of course she wanted to eat.
Gu Nianzhi gave a slight “hmm” and asked again, “Where’s my phone?”
“It’s destroyed,” Lu Jin told her regretfully. “The phone I gave you directly blocked the bullet. After the bullet exploded, everything in your backpack was destroyed.”
That meant that her passport, ID card, phone, wallet, and even her favorite lipstick were all gone.
Gu Nianzhi wanted to cry again. Seeing that the red light was about to light up again, Lu Jin said frantically, “Don’t worry! Don’t worry! I’ll get someone to prepare the passport, ID card, and wallet right away. As for the phone, use this phone.”
He handed the phone he had prepared earlier to Gu Nianzhi. “This was specially prepared for you. The number is exactly the same as your previous phone. I’ve already made a backup of your contact list from the cloud.”
Gu Nianzhi did not accept it. She still looked at Lu Jin. “… This isn’t good, is it? I won’t accept a reward for nothing. You’ve been so good to me, so how can I accept it?”
Gu Nianzhi turned to look at the ward and said, “If I’m not wrong, this house is yours too, isn’t it?”
Lu Jin was also a major shareholder of the Lu Corporation. She remembered him saying that he was the biggest shareholder, so it was normal to have such a house.
However, she did not know how he had managed to sneak the house over to Secretary Lin, who was Lu Yuan.
Lu Jin lowered his head and like a primary school student who had done something wrong, he sat up straight. “It’s mine. You can stay here. It’s okay. He Zhichu paid the rent, so you can have it.”
Gu Nianzhi: “…”
She felt like she couldn’t hold it in any longer.
But before she broke her technique, she had to make sure everything was in order.
If Lu Jin wasn’t her biological father, Gu Xiangwen, she would leave immediately.
Please forgive her for not being able to accept such a huge favor.
Gu Nianzhi adjusted her expression and continued, “Then I’m sorry, but Young Master He has nothing to do with me. You’ve only met me by chance and we’ve never met before. I can’t accept such a huge favor from you. Please give me your phone. I want to call my friends and go back to my own home.”
“Nianzhi! I’m willing to let you stay here. Don’t feel burdened!” Lu Jin was anxious and did not know how to persuade her to stay.
“No, I won’t stay in an outsider’s house. I won’t accept charity either.” Gu Nianzhi was very firm. Although her chest and back were hurting, she still tried to sit up and struggled to get out of bed.
She stretched out an arm and reached for a pair of pink slippers in front of the bed.
Seeing that her forehead was sweating and her facial features were almost contorted from the pain, Lu Jin’s facial features were also twisted. His heart ached terribly.
He said desperately, “Nianzhi, don’t be like this. I know… I know what you want me to say something… It’s not that I don’t want to…”
“What do I want you to say?” Her dark jade-like eyes staring intently at Lu Jin, Gu Nianzhi suddenly looked up. “It’s not that you don’t want to? Then you don’t want to?”
It had to be said that when it came to infuriating people, Gu Nianzhi was self-taught and her skills were unrivaled.
“Of course I want to!” Lu Jin was forced into a corner by Gu Nianzhi. He made up his mind and closed his eyes, then said loudly, “I’m not unwilling! I’m not worthy of it!”
