The Surgeon’s Studio - Chapter 667
A large aftershock caused the walls to creak.
Zheng Ren and Su Yun’s faces turned pale. Although this space was supported by a lead wall, it definitely could not withstand another aftershock above level 6.
They had just sent a patient out but the new patient had not been brought in yet. In the narrow and cramped space, there were only Zheng Ren and Su Yun. This could be considered a blessing in disguise.
At the very least, they did not need to worry about the patient’s safety. They just needed to protect themselves.
Because of that, the chances of survival were high…but not by much.
Zheng Ren and Su Yun’s actions were almost identical. At the same time, they hid in the corner that looked the sturdiest.
After that, they looked at each other but no one said anything.
Fear and uneasiness dominated the place. Although Zheng Ren and Su Yun risked great danger during surgeries, it did not mean that they were not afraid.
Zheng Ren could only hide in the corner and comfort himself. With his luck +12 attribute, he would definitely be fine.
On the other hand, Su Yun was filled with fear and curiosity as he looked at the shaking wall. When he heard the tsunami-like roar coming from the mantle, he could not help but feel a little absent-minded.
Gradually, the two of them calmed down.
At most, they would just die. Since they had already accepted it, it was not difficult to let go.
Although Zheng Ren’s mind was filled with Xie Yiren and Su Yun felt regretful that he had not won the Nobel Prize, what could he do?
The strong aftershocks quickly ended, leaving only weaker aftershocks that kept coming one after another.
Another piece of the building that was originally not sturdy collapsed, falling right in front of the small ventilation window. Originally, there was still a trace of light and shadow outside, but at this moment, nothing could be seen.
The room was full of dust, and it was difficult to breathe.
“Boss, it seems we have survived yet again,” Su Yun looked at the dark space and whispered. His voice was ethereal, just like a ghost.
Zheng Ren wanted to smile. Although no one could see it, this smile was for himself and Xie Yiren who was far away.
Shouldn’t they celebrate if they could survive and see the sun tomorrow?
“I think so,” Zheng Ren said.
“Zheng Ren, Su Yun!” As the strong aftershock passed, shouts came from outside. It was Zhao Yunlong. He shouted at the first moment.
The voice was muffled, low and distant, like the sound of the heart when it was stuffed.
“What are you howling for? Your Brother Yun won’t die!” Su Yun stood up and shook the dust off his body.
“The air vent is blocked. We’ll open it right now. The two of you, hurry up and come out.” Zhao Yunlong heard Su Yun’s voice and he was gearing up to argue with him so they were both probably fine.
“There’s no rush. Send the next patient in,” Zheng Ren said.
“Not for the time being!” Zhao Yunlong said.
Hmm, so soon? Zheng Ren was stunned by the surgery. Who was going to calculate how many patients he had done and how many more patients needed to be operated on?
It was done. That was really good news.
Zheng Ren was also unwilling to perform surgery in this grave-like place. It would be fine if he was really smashed to death. If he was trapped and did not have heavy machinery, he would starve to death…
Forget it. He did not want to think about these things. He should just think about something happy.
The people outside quickly cleared the rocks blocking the air vent. They cleared a path for Zheng Ren and Su Yun to climb out.
Fortunately, although the aftershock was strong, the building did not collapse. It was just clearing some rubble. The problem was easily solved.
Half an hour later, Zheng Ren and Su Yun climbed out.
After seven to eight hours of surgery in this tomb-like place, they had climbed out and breathed in the fresh air. Even the raindrops felt so refreshing.
“How are the wounded?” Zheng Ren asked as he took a few deep breaths and quickly recovered his strength.
“The helicopter came twice again and picked up the seriously injured.” Zhao Yunlong obviously felt that the pressure was a lot lighter, so he continued with a smile, “The colonel asked where you were. I told him you went to do surgery under the ruins. If it weren’t for the tight schedule and heavy tasks, he would have wanted to see you.”
Zheng Ren thought of the bearded pilot. So he was a colonel. His rank was so high.
No wonder Su Yun had looked at him in that way. It was strange that he did not recognize the colonel’s epaulets.
“The main force is just one mountain away. Behind them, heavy equipment is also being transported up. They are clearing the road.” Zhao Yunlong’s voice was somewhat cheerful and full of hope.
Everything was developing in a good direction. Zheng Ren heaved a sigh of relief.
It seemed that the possibility of getting out alive was getting higher and higher.
To live and continue to live was the best thing that could happen.
The sound of a propeller came from afar once again. Zheng Ren’s mind was jolted.
Even if the main force were to come in, they could only bring in urgently needed supplies with their manpower. The search and rescue of the survivors would be faster.
As long as the road was not clear, the task of transporting seriously injured people who needed to be treated in the ICU would definitely have to be completed by a helicopter.
It was great to hear the propeller sound.
The rain gradually stopped. The lights of a helicopter appeared in the night sky. It was like the morning star, carrying endless hope.
Zheng Ren took the time to write down a brief introduction of each patient’s condition as well as the treatment recommendations for the later stages. He put them into plastic bags and pasted them on the patients.
By the time he was done, Zhao Yunlong and the others had already finished moving the necessary items that the helicopter had brought over. They began to carry the patients onto the helicopter.
Zheng Ren walked happily to the front of the helicopter. He wanted to chat with the bearded man one more time. He wanted to ask if the patients who had been transferred had all been sent to Huaxi.
Then there was the question of whether the doctors from the dialysis department had already arrived. There were also the dialysis machines…
There were countless questions and expectations.
However, when he arrived before the helicopter, he did not see the bearded pilot. This time, it was a middle-aged man in his thirties.
Zheng Ren moved closer. The helicopter’s propeller made a rumbling sound. One had to roar when speaking. If not, no one would be able to hear him clearly.
After explaining things to the new pilot, Zheng Ren felt that he was not used to it. As someone who was like a patient with advanced facial blindness, it was a happy thing to be able to see a familiar face.
Amidst the rumbling sound of the propeller, the other side had already sent the seriously injured people onto the helicopter.
Zheng Ren saluted the pilot and shouted, “Give my regards to the colonel!”
The voice passed through the rumbling sound and the pilot who returned the salute was stunned. His face instantly darkened.
Zheng Ren saw the change in him, and a haze shrouded the bottom of his heart.
“The regiment commander…dropped dead an hour ago,” the pilot said with a gloomy face. “From now on, the mission of this town will be completed by me. If there is a change, then assume I have departed from the world.”
With that, he turned around and left, his eyes bloodshot.
The helicopter flew away, braving the scattered drizzle and thick fog that could not be dispersed.
Zheng Ren looked at the lights on the tail of the helicopter in a daze and was stunned for a long time.
“Boss, what’s wrong?” Su Yun saw that Zheng Ren’s condition was not right and came over to ask.
“Nothing.” Zheng Ren shook his head and watched the helicopter leave.
Zheng Ren was silent as he watched the helicopter fly through the rain with difficulty. He slowly raised his right arm and saluted. After that, he extended his right fist and fist-pumped the sky.
