Sweet Teeth / A Speck Amid The Dust of The World 世界微尘里 Chapter 2.4

Chapter 2.4 - Wheel of Fortune (Part 2)

     At noon, several people in the shop ordered a bento together according to their old rules. 

Zeng Li basically couldn't eat it. She felt uncomfortable after chewing twice and had to put down her chopsticks. 

     Later, Zeng Li almost didn't even want to talk. 
     In the afternoon, Zeng Li suddenly received a text message.
     When Zeng Li first saw the first half, she thought it was some kind of health-care spam text message, and almost deleted it. After reading it, she remembered that it was Ai Jingchu's doctor's order. 
    She took a look, put down the phone, and served the customer a drink. It took a long time before she remembered the text message as she was busy with the matter at hand. 
     She turned on her mobile phone and replied: It suddenly occurred to her that Wu Ying called all the doctors in her hospital by teacher. Zeng Li once asked curiously why, Wu Ying replied: “It feels more respectful to be called a teacher than a doctor. ”
     So, she finally changed and wrote: "Okay, thank you, Teacher Ai. ”
     When it was past three o'clock in the afternoon, she was so tortured by the braces that she couldn't bear it, so she took leave with Ma Yiyi and went to sleep in the lounge upstairs. 
     In the evening, Ma Yiyi brought a bowl of hot porridge and brought up the mobile phone that Zeng Li had left on the bar. Zeng Li finished eating with a grin, picked up the phone and clicked on it to take a look. 
     No new text messages came in. 
     After a while, Wu Ying, the largest shareholder of Carol's, pushed the door weakly and entered. Ma Yiyi glanced at her, “Didn't you rest for a long time today? Why do you still look like you are going to die?" 
     Wu Ying sighed faintly, “Don't mention it, I was tortured by several men all night. ”
     Ma Yiyi pinched her throat and asked deliberately: "How did they torture you all night? ”
     Wu Ying glared at her. 
     “ I work the night shift yesterday. Then after eleven o'clock, a group of drunk fighting men came, and they were all bleeding yet they had to continue the fight, which turned the emergency room upside down. There was a man in his thirties. I was going to give him stitches. He actually took my hand and cried for his mother while drunk. ”
     "Puff—" Dou Dou couldn't help laughing. 
    “I just finished dealing with this group of people at three or four o'clock in the morning, and I had to lie down for a while. However, a lower-level hospital in a suburban county called again and said that there was an emergency patient who needed to be transferred to the hospital. Then I followed the ambulance to pick up the patient, and it was dawn when I came back. At nine o'clock I was supposed to pass my shift, but I had just started to write medical records. It was almost twelve o'clock after I finished it. Where do I have time to sleep? I had insomnia at home in the afternoon. " After speaking, Wu Ying yawned. 
     Zeng Li finally asked, “When did you transfer to the emergency department again?" ”
     Wu Ying said, "Don't I have to try out every single department? What's wrong with your mouth? ”
     Ma Yiyi said: "Her mother was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to marry, so she took her to have plastic surgery. ”
     “It's orthodontics, not plastic surgery..." Zeng Li explained. 
     “Why didn't you go to our hospital for your teeth? I know a doctor who is not bad at his skills. If I knew I would take you there. ”
     “Your hospital? " Ma Yiyi asked. 
     “Hey, it's the top three. " Wu Ying is unwilling to lose, she has a strong sense of group honour wherever she is. 
     “People went to A University, can you beat it? ”
     “Which doctor in University A? ”
     “Ai Jingchu. ”
     Ma Yiyi originally thought that based on Wu Ying's character, she would continue to ask questions, but she didn't expect upon hearing the name, Wu Ying glanced at Zeng Li and was silent. 
     After a while, Ma Yiyi secretly asked again, “You and that person really truly have nothing to do with each other? ”
     “Really truly nothing, truer than pearls." Zeng Li replied to Ma Yiyi with an oath, looking completely honest and sincere. 
     Ma Yiyi was sad. 
    Zeng Li glanced at her and sighed in her heart. If there was anything, it might just be a small curiosity that stayed in her memories. 
     Nothing more.
