Hello Mr. Major General Chapter 1174 | han-wuji
Gu Nianzhi brought out the information she had gleaned and summarized it for everyone in the car.
"My father listed the names of four clinics on the note. They are Battis Fertility Aid Center, the Parents Clinic in the Labado Project, Dass Fertility and Medical Clinic, and Lajiawan Infertility Treatment Center.
"Last night, I hacked into their websites and looked at their financial systems to find that Battis Fertility Aid Center is the largest operation out of the four clinics. However, they only received a modest amount of donations.
"The Parents Clinic in the Labado Project is the second-largest operation, so they received more donations than Battis Fertility Aid Center. However, they still received less than the other two clinics.
"Lajiawan Infertility Treatment Center is the smallest operation and received the smallest number of donations.
"Of all the clinics, the Dass Fertility and Medical Clinic ranks third in size and profit. However, it received the largest amount of donations from the Angels on Earth charity. Their clinic received two-thirds of the total donations that this charity gave out.
"So, we need to go to the Dass Fertility and Medical Clinic today.
"I want to go and check why this clinic is special and effective enough to receive the most donations from the charity, despite only being average in size and profit," Gu Nianzhi said.
Gu Nianzhi sent the information from her research to He Zhichu and Huo Shaohengs phones separately, then said, "You can look at this yourself and check if I missed anything."
Huo Shaoheng didnt even take his phone out and replied calmly, "I believe you. There is no need to check."
He Zhichu had already taken out his phone, but the corners of his mouth turned down when he heard Huo Shaoheng speak. He secretly cursed Huo Shaoheng for being despicable, then put away his phone as if nothing had happened. He replied dryly, "I am not interested in the clinic. I am only worried about your safety."
He was indicating that he wasnt going to check if there was something fishy about the clinic, but rather ensuring Gu Nianzhis safety.
Gu Nianzhi nodded quickly and said, "Okay, okay. I know that Professor He is only looking out for me."
He Zhichu turned around and smiled at her, his shining and sultry eyes flickering slightly.
Huo Shaoheng pursed his lips, then pressed Gu Nianzhis head against his shoulder and replied dryly, "Go to sleep. You were so tired all night. Arent you feeling sleepy?"
Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng in utter shock. "But I did actually sleep last night. When did I?"
"No?" Huo Shaoheng gave her a half-smile as he watched her, then leaned over. "Hmm?"
The last word was said in a low and magnetic tone. As an audiophile, Gu Nianzhi couldnt stop blushing from her attraction to his beautiful voice. She shifted backward and stammered, "There there was nothing."
She then closed her eyes and attempted to gloss things over by saying, "Im feeling sleepy. I will take a nap now."
She only wanted to shut Huo Shaoheng up and stop him from saying those kinds of things in front of He Zhichu. However, that was exactly what Huo Shaoheng wanted.
He snaked one arm across Gu Nianzhis back to hold her completely against his body. He replied coolly, "Go to sleep. I will wake you when we get there."
Gu Nianzhi quickly shut her eyes, since trouble unseen was no trouble at all.
He Zhichus gaze suddenly sharpened like a dagger as he coldly glared at Huo Shaoheng. He then turned around to look ahead, not saying anything again.
Everyone remained silent the entire way until they arrived at the parking lot of the Dass Fertility and Medical Clinic.
Huo Shaoheng nudged Gu Nianzhi awake, saying, "Were here now."
Gu Nianzhi rubbed her eyes and took out a pair of sunglasses to put on. She smiled and said, "Ill be mute from now on!"
He Zhichu also put on sunglasses, but he didnt leave the car.
He waved his phone at Gu Nianzhi and said, "There is a pinhole camera built into your sunglasses, and I have already linked it to my phones internet connection. I will be able to see everything that you guys see."
Gu Nianzhi pushed the sunglasses up the bridge of her nose and nodded with a smile. She took Huo Shaohengs arm and headed towards the clinic entrance.
The clinic was in the typical style of the local architecturesquare, flat buildings, with gray-toned marble material as outer walls. It appeared clean, yet simple.
It was higher class than the rundown ghettos but just a shred more cultured than the gaudy bourgeois areas.
There was a lush green lawn in front of the clinic.
The South Asian sun of early summer shone on the grass and revealed a strong sense of vitality.
Gu Nianzhi grabbed Huo Shaohengs arm and kept a demure smile on her face. They crossed the path on the lawn, and she gritted the words through her teeth as they walked. "What did you mean by what you said in the car earlier?!"
"The literal meaning." Huo Shaoheng continued to smile subtly as he walked forward at an elegant and even pace, yet the words he said were not very elegant at all. "Mrs. Huo, its best that you only have eyes for Mr. Huo. If you look at someone else, Mr. Huo will be very angry."
"When did I ever have eyes for someone else!?" Gu Nianzhi pouted in dissatisfaction. "Can you stop constantly harassing Professor He? Professor He has only helped us the whole time, but you keep targeting him. Are you trying to hurt his feelings? Are you really forcing him to become our enemy? Do you know how powerful he is?"
The smile slowly faded from Huo Shaohengs face. After a moment of silence, he finally said, "If you are the price I need to pay for having him on our side, then I would rather he be our enemy."
Gu Nianzhi was dumbfounded.
She should have been somewhat dissatisfied with this response, but why on earth was she feeling a bit happy about it instead?!
She rarely heard any classic romantic lines from Huo Shaoheng, but she indicated that she was willing to listen to more of what he had to say today.
Gu Nianzhi pinched Huo Shaohengs arm and said in encouragement, "And what else?"
Her huge eyes stared innocently at him in anticipation of even more affection.
Huo Shaoheng didnt need to look to know what kind of expression was on Gu Nianzhis face.
He didnt even turn around and replied calmly, "Dont try to take a mile when I give you an inch."
Gu Nianzhi was blank.
They chatted and laughed happily as they finally arrived at the entrance of the Dass Fertility and Medical Clinic.
They quickly noticed that most of the patients were comprised of two kinds of people.
Some of the patients were Caucasians from Europe and America, so the men were tall and handsome, and the women were glamorous and alluring.
There was also a group of patients who appeared Asian, and they were most likely ethnically Japanese.
Both the men and women were very short and not very good looking, either.
Their faces looked like they had been shaped carelessly by Godfaces with such flat features that a hand could swipe over them and make them disappear completely.
These two groups made up the majority of the people in the clinic.
There were very few Asian couples where both the man and woman were tall and good looking like Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi.
So, when they entered, the eyes of the medical personnel in white coats immediately lit up.
They exchanged knowing looks before a middle-aged Asian woman at the reception desk walked over. She smiled and welcomed them, saying, "Hello. Was there something I could help you with?
She actually spoke Chinese, but it sounded rather stiff. She was obviously not a Chinese person.
Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi didnt know if the woman could tell they were Chinese at first glance, but their plan couldnt exactly change because of one thing the other party said.
Huo Shaoheng made a perplexed expression, then bowed respectfully and said in Japanese, "Nice to meet you. Please take care of us."
"Oh? You are not from the Huaxia Empire?" The middle-aged Asian woman was shocked and delighted. Her attitude towards them warmed up as well.
She bowed deeply to them and naturally replied in fluent Japanese, "Welcome. Please come inside."
