Chapter 22 

The hospital was always the busiest place, and it was where one could see what human nature was like. There were people coming and going in the wards, corridors, and halls. There were old, young, and sick people with their companions. Some of them were crying, some were silent, and some had smiles on their faces. 

It had been almost three years since she graduated, and her heart was no longer as sensitive as when she first left school. At that time, even time she saw someone pitiful, she would cry along with them. 

There were too many helpless moments and accidents in the world, and she didn’t have time to sympathize. 

In the adult world, there was never an easy way to choose, so being able to turn a mess into a beautiful day was already good enough. 

Sherri was afraid of disturbing Natalie’s consultation, so she took the medicine and went to her own office for a while. At this time, everyone was in the outpatient department or in surgery, and the office was empty. 

She waited until it was close to dinner time before getting up and going. to the outpatient department to have a meal with Natalie and complain about last night’s unpleasantness. 

Sherri directly pushed open the door to her best friend’s outpatient room. There were no patients, and Natalie was taking off her white coat, getting ready to eat. 

When Natalie saw Sherri enter, she stopped what she was doing, sat back at her desk, and asked in a hurry, “You finally showed up. If you didn’t, I was going to call the police. Where did you sleep last night?” 

Jim told Natalie that “Mr. Roberts” had arranged everything, but she didn’t know who “Mr. Roberts” was. At this moment, she really wanted to know where Sherri was last night. 

Sherri, exhausted, slumped on the desk and casually tossed the medical records to Natalie, indicating that she was sick. 

Natalie skeptically took the medical records and was surprised by what the doctor had written. She asked, “What happened to you? I called in sick for you today, and you really went all out. You don’t have to be so convincing, do you?”

Continuing to read the medical records, Natalie said, “Muscle strain. What were you doing last night? What’s wrong with your mouth?” She was completely confused. 

Sherri, half-dead, spoke up. “Please give me some soup. I’m starving,” she said slowly, propping up her cheek. 

These past few days, she hadn’t been able to eat anything good, so soup was her only choice. 

“What a tasteless life!” Sherri mourned inwardly. 

Natalie looked at her friend’s pale face and said, “Hmm, I’ll get you some. 

But first, tell me what happened to your mouth.” She paused for a moment and added, “Do you want some meat in it?” 

“Yeah, sure,” Sherri replied. 

Just as Natalie took out her phone from her pocket, she saw a friend. request notification. She was a bit puzzled because not many people knew her WhatsApp ID. 

Seeing Natalie’s furrowed brow, Sherri asked in a low voice, “What’s wrong?”
