Chapter 861: Chance Encounter at the hospital

Two days later.

It was New Year's Eve.

Aunt Xuan and Little Qianqian had returned to her apartment at the TV Station’s family quarters with Luan Xiaoping. Only Dong Xuebing and Xie Huilan remained in the apartment, packing their luggage. They were going back to Beijing for the New Year's Day holidays.

“Xiao Bing, are you ready?”

“Almost. You should get dressed.”

“I am all dressed up. Haha…. Hurry up.”

“Yes. I am almost done. How about you go downstairs and start the car first?”

“Are you driving the Porsche, Land Rover, or both?”

“Why are we driving separately? Let’s drive the Land Rover. The road conditions are not very good, and there’s a steep upslope. I am afraid the Porsche’s undercarriage might be too low.”

“Alright. I will go downstairs first.”

“Be careful when going downstairs. Don’t fall.”

“I know. Haha….”

Ten minutes later. City Party Committee Family Quarters.

Dong Xuebing loaded the luggage into the Land Rover and entered the front passenger seat. “Why are you driving? Are you sure you can drive? Let me drive.”

Xie Huilan smiled. “I am not that weak.”

“I am afraid you might get tired.”

“I am only one month pregnant. It’s fine.”

“Ok. Oh, did you tell Mum and Dad?”

Xie Huilan nodded and smiled. “I was about to call them now. Dial their number and pass me the phone.”

“Here. You are treating me as your servant.” Dong Xuebing joked and gave her the phone.

Xie Huilan answered. “Hello, Mum. I am Huilan.”

Han Jing laughed. “I know it’s you. Are you coming back for New Year?”

Xie Huilan looked at Dong Xuebing. “Xiao Bing and I are in the car now, and we should be arriving around noon. Let’s have lunch.”

Han Jing asked curiously. “Why are you reaching at noon? It’s 7 am now. Are you two going somewhere else?”

Xie Huilan smiled. “We are going to the hospital first. Haha…. I will let you know later. Don’t worry.”

“Alright. I will prepare lunch for you all.”

“Hehe…. Thank you.”

Han Jing smiled. “It’s rare to hear you being so polite. Alright, drive carefully. Remember to fasten your seatbelts.”

“I know.”

Xie Huilan gave the phone back to Dong Xuebing after hanging up. “Let’s go.”

One hour….

Two hours….

The Land Rover entered Beijing around 9 am. 𝑏𝑒𝑑𝑛𝘰𝑣𝑒𝘭.𝑐𝑜𝑚

They drove straight to the PLA General Hospital instead of going home. They were going there for an ultrasound scan and pregnancy checkup. The hospitals in Fen Zhou City were not as good as the ones in Beijing. Xie Huilan’s pregnancy was critical to a political family like the Xie Family. She could not afford to be careless.

Many medical institutions in Beijing were the best in the country.

The best general hospital in Beijing is the 302 Hospital. Although it was not listed among the top hospitals in China, it does not mean their doctors’ standards were not up to standard. This hospital’s Professors and specialists do not serve the public. They serve the Government Leaders, and only a few outpatient clinics were opened to the public.

The General Hospital.

The Land Rover stopped in a parking lot, and Xie Huilan and Dong Xuebing got out.

Xie Huilan was wearing a black fur coat and black heels. She was stunning, and everyone looked at her when she got out of the car.

Xie Huilan held Dong Xuebing’s arms. “Let’s go.”

Everyone was looking at them curiously.

Dong Xuebing felt proud to have such a beautiful wife.

Inside the registration building.

The waiting area was crowded with people seeking treatment.

Dong Xuebing asked. “Should we call Aunt Liu?”

Aunt Liu was the PLA General Hospital’s Deputy Director and PLA’s youngest female General. Dong Xuebing had met her at his wedding and knew she was close with the Xie Family. Maybe she is also a member of the Xie Faction.

Xie Huilan laughed. “I contacted her yesterday. Let’s go upstairs. She had arranged everything for me.”

Dong Xuebing quickly helped Xie Huilan upstairs. “Slow down.”

“Alright.” Xie Huilan laughed. “You are exaggerating.”

Dong Xuebing argued. “It’s so crowded, and they might knock into you.”

“Haha…. Ok. Since you care so much, I will let you protect me. Let’s go.”


They chatted as they went up the stairs slowly. Xie Huilan made a call when they reached the Obstetrics level, and a female doctor walked out to welcome them. “Are you Ms. Xie and Mr. Dong? Director Liu informed us. Please come with me for your checkup.”

“Thanks. How long will it take?”

“Around one hour.” The doctor replied.

Xie Huilan looked at Dong Xuebing. “It’s inconvenient for you to follow. Go and smoke downstairs. I will call you when I am done.”

Dong Xuebing replied. “It’s fine.”

“Listen to me, ok?”

“Then I will wait here.”

“Ok.” Xie Huilan threw her handbag to Dong Xuebing. “Hold on to my bag for me. Haha….”

After Xie Huilan went in for her pregnancy checkup, Dong Xuebing walked along the corridor for a while when he got an urge to smoke. He had not smoked when she was around and decided to have a few puffs.

When Dong Xuebing walked past by the Orthopedics department on the second floor, he stopped.

“Eh? This is….” Dong Xuebing looked towards the lobby.

A group of men and women talked loudly outside a doctor’s office.

Dong Xuebing saw a young girl in her early twenties sitting in a wheelchair among them. She was slightly younger than him, and she was sobbing. He immediately recognized her. Zhan Rourou.

Why is she here?

Zhan Rourou had come to the 302 PLA General Hospital for treatment? The man and woman beside her should be Deputy Secretary Zhan Guiping and his wife.
