Shu Rong herself was a medical student, she certainly knew how dangerous aortic dissection was. She showed a very brief expression of panic before saying, “Don’t go, call Director Yu over here.”

       Ning Junyan looked too calm, he said, “I can go.”

       Shu Rong thought a lot in a short time, and her attitude was as tough as Ning Junyan’s, “Don’t you do it, and your dad won’t approve of you going on this surgery.”

       Ning Junyan turned around and left, “I’ve already asked to arrange for emergency surgery.”

       Shu Rong was a little flustered, she suddenly said to Chen Yuncheng, “Yuncheng, help me persuade him, if there is anything wrong with this operation, it will be very bad for him and his father, he’d better not do it.”

       Chen Yuncheng heard Shu Rong’s words. He subconsciously followed Ning Junyan and called out, “Junyan.”

       Ning Junyan stopped, turned around and looked at Chen Yuncheng, with a steady tone, “I said it’s fine.”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know so much, nor did he know what exactly Shu Rong was talking about when she said it was bad. He was just worried about Ning Junyan, and said, “Care to reconsider?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Others can’t do it, but I can. Do you believe me?”

       Chen Yuncheng replied, “Of course I believe you.”

       Ning Junyan said to him, “You agreed to come to me tomorrow night.” After speaking, he glanced at the time on his watch, “It should be tonight, I’ll be waiting for you.”

       Chen Yuncheng still did not choose to leave, and he was really uneasy. Even if he went back now, he was not in the mood to rest and work, he might as well stay and wait for news from Ning Junyan.

       Even though he knew that Shu Rong didn’t want to see him, he accompanied Shu Rong to wait outside the operating room.

       Soon after the operation started, the chief of cardiac surgery, Director Yu rushed to the hospital, greeted Shu Rong and entered the operating room.

       Shu Rong’s pale face finally recovered a little, and she sat on the bench outside the operating room with her arms folded.

       It was a bit difficult time for Chen Yuncheng. He sat quietly, not looking at his phone or doing anything else, and his eyes kept falling on the closed door of the operating room.

       After a while, he realised that Shu Rong was looking at him, but he didn’t turn his head away.

       Just now, Ning Junyan had acted a bit ambiguously towards him in front of Shu Rong. Shu Rong was a sensitive woman, and Chen Yun Cheng felt that she probably noticed something, but until now Shu Rong had not mentioned a word about it.

       Maybe it was because the time was not right, Shu Rong’s all thoughts were still on the father and son in the operating room, and she couldn’t care about other things for the time being.

       At eight o’clock in the morning, Chen Yuncheng was tired and hungry, so he hesitantly asked Shu Rong, “Auntie, do you want to eat something?” He thought he could go and buy breakfast for Shu Rong.

       But Shu Rong shook her head with a cold expression.

       Chen Yuncheng got up, walked to the end of the corridor, and took a cup of hot water with a paper cup. When he came back and wanted to give the hot water to Shu Rong, he saw three or four more people at the door of the operating room, all of whom were not far from Shu Rong’s age. A woman helping Shu Rong to put on her coat, and someone handing her a thermos cup filled with hot water.

       One of the middle-aged men looked seventy to eighty percent similar to Ning Zhanghong. Chen Yuncheng guessed that they might be Ning Zhanghong’s relatives, so he did not approach them but sat on a seat a little further away from the operating theatre and silently drank the hot water in the paper cup.

       They stayed at the door of the operating room for a while; some left, and some stayed behind to keep Shu Rong company.

       Shu Rong did not glance towards Chen Yuncheng’s side, nor did she introduce Chen Yuncheng’s identity, so Chen Yuncheng sat alone and after a while, feeling too tired, leaned his head back against the wall and fell asleep.

       He did not sleep deeply and woke up intermittently in the middle of the night. He noticed that there were more and more people outside the operating room, who should be the family members of other surgical patients in the hospital. He didn’t move and fell asleep again after a while. When he woke up, the people around him changed, only he and Shu Rong were still there, and even the woman who accompanied Shu Rong changed.

       It was late afternoon, and the operation had been going on for seven or eight hours since the early hours of the morning.

       The moment Chen Yuncheng heard the door of the operating room pushed open, he suddenly woke up from his half-asleep state for some reason and saw Ning Junyan appear at the door of the operating room.

       Ning Junyan didn’t even change his clothes yet. He was wearing a blue short-sleeved shirt in the operating room but had already taken off his hat and mask. He first looked at Shu Rong and said, “The operation went well.” Then he walked in the direction of Chen Yuncheng.

       Shu Rong raised her hand to cover her chest, and sitting next to Shu Rong was Ning Zhanghong’s younger sister, Ning Zhangyu. She still had questions to ask Ning Junyan, but she didn’t know where he was going, so she got up and called out, “Junyan?”

       Ning Junyan kept walking forward.

       Chen Yuncheng stood up, and there were other family members of the patients around him, all of whom looked curiously at the doctor who came out of the operating room.

       Ning Junyan walked up to Chen Yuncheng, raised his arms and hugged him hard.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t have time to think about it at all and quickly hugged Ning Junyan back. He felt that Ning Junyan’s whole body strength was pressing on him, and suddenly felt distressed. He patted Ning Junyan on the back and said, “It’s okay.”

       Ning Junyan’s voice had the huskiness of over-exhaustion as he said to him, “Since you’re not leaving, go to the office and wait for me.”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, “Okay.”

       Ning Junyan let go, turned and went back in the direction of the operating room. When passing by Shu Rong and the others, Ning Zhangyu looked at him in surprise, but he didn’t say anything and closed the door of the operating room after entering.

       Chen Yuncheng noticed that many people were looking at him, so he turned and left, taking the elevator back to the department upstairs.

       He walked outside Ning Junyan’s office, tried to open it only to find out that the door was locked, and when he retreated to find a place to sit and wait, the head nurse came over and opened the door for him.

       The head nurse met him and asked him, “Are you Chief Ning’s friend? He just called and asked me to open the door for him.”

       Chen Yuncheng responded, “Thank you.” After the head nurse left, he opened the door and walked in.

       After waiting for another half an hour, Ning Junyan came back in a white coat. He opened the door of the office but did not come in. He said to Chen Yuncheng, “Wait for me a little longer.” Then he went to the doctor’s office to give the postoperative prescriptions.

       When he came back again, Ning Junyan raised his hand and locked the office door. He lay directly on the sofa, with his head resting on Chen Yuncheng’s thigh who was sitting in a corner of the sofa, and his two long legs curled up on the other side in a pitiful way.

       Ning Junyan hugged Chen Yuncheng’s waist with his hands and buried his face in his arms.

       Chen Yuncheng stroked his hair and found it was slightly damp, and said, “Your hair is still wet.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I blew it, it will dry soon.” He had taken a shower after the operation.

       Chen Yuncheng asked again, “Don’t you need to keep watch over your father?”

       Ning Junyan said, “My mother and the rest of the family were there, and I said I needed to rest.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked, “Do you want to go back and rest?” He felt that it was not good for Ning Junyan to sleep here.

       Ning Junyan shook his head, “I’ll wait a little longer to see.”

       After a while, Ning Junyan suddenly raised his head, and asked Chen Yuncheng, “Have you eaten yet?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m not hungry.”

       Not hungry meant that he hadn’t eaten yet, so Ning Junyan raised his hand to get his mobile phone and called for someone to bring up food.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Just rest, don’t worry about me.”

       Ning Junyan ended the call, put down the phone and said, “I can’t make my wife hungry.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled, his tone was a little more relaxed and asked him, “The operation went well, didn’t it?”

       Ning Junyan lay on his lap, looked up at him, and said, “I said I can do it.”

       Director Yu rushed over shortly after the operation started, but the operation was still performed by Ning Junyan. He was calmer than everyone imagined. Every time he was on the operating table, Ning Junyan would not be afraid, and his hand holding the scalpel never trembled.

       He was not trying to be brave in today’s operation, but he knew that no matter who was lying on the operating table, he was capable of doing his best. So he was unwilling to entrust others to do it. He wanted to take everything that belonged to him in his hands, even if it was his father, whom he was not close to.

       Chen Yuncheng looked into Ning Junyan’s eyes, “I know you are the best.” He also felt emotional at this moment, he thought he really loved him.

       Ning Junyan said calmly, “Then will you reward me?”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and asked him, “What reward do you want at this time? Are you not tired?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’m tired, but I can’t sleep. I remember I told you that every time I have an operation, I want to vent.”

       Chen Yuncheng pretended not to understand, “How do you vent?”

       Ning Junyan grabbed his hand and pressed it to his body.

       Chen Yuncheng felt unbelievable, “How long has it been since you slept? How can you still get hard now?”

       Ning Junyan’s tone was flat, as if he was discussing what to eat tonight with him, and said, “It was just an impulse before, and since I saw you, there have been pictures.”

       Chen Yuncheng was suddenly embarrassed to speak.

       But Ning Junyan continued, “There are various, do you want to try?”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand to cover Ning Junyan’s eyes, not letting him look at him, and said in a low voice, “You go to bed first, and I will try with you after you’ve rested enough.”
