Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The young woman’s eyes slowly reddened when she spoke of her mother. She nervously rubbed the corner of her clothes with one hand and held her son tightly with the other. She seemed to have made up her mind. Then, she looked at Jiang Yao. She said, “Doctor Jiang, if you can, please try your best to save them. But please don’t make things difficult for yourself. If there’s no other way, please take care of yourself, and take care of yourself and your child. My mother’s life is important, and so are yours and your child’s life. We can’t be so selfish as to ask others to exchange their lives for others.”
She was a mother, so the young woman knew better than anyone that her child was more important than anyone else. She wanted her mother to come home; however, she could not selfishly ask a pregnant woman to sacrifice her life and that of her soon-to-be-born child for her family.
After the young woman finished speaking, she bowed toward Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi. “On behalf of all the victims and their families, I would like to thank both of you for your efforts. I believe the country is working hard, and both of you are working hard. Even if they do not return, my child and I still believe that our country will protect its citizens.
“Doctor, my teacher said that the army is all about self-sacrifice, and doctors are all about saving lives and helping the wounded. You are all heroes! Thank you!” Those were the purest and truest words in the world.
The young woman took the child and left. The child looked back at the people in the office, and the child’s young voice still reached the ears of the people in the office.
“Mom, I want Grandma, but I don’t want anything to happen to the uncle and the doctor. The doctor is going to have a baby, and I don’t want anything to happen to the baby. How come there is no superhero in this world? If only we have a superhero.”
They had walked too far, so Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao could not hear the mother’s reply to her child. However, unlike the previous night’s anger, all the negative emotions were gone at that moment.
“Xingzhi, those people are worthy of our protection, right?” Jiang Yao sniffed. She could not hide how touched she was.
“Not everyone is a troublemaker,” the chief said with a sigh. “There are still people with good intentions. We should try not to disappoint them.”
After sighing, the chief asked the two of them why they were there. The chief immediately nodded when he heard they were preparing to leave that day.
“When we receive the notice, we will arrange for a military plane to send you to Jindo City.”
“My mother-in-law is unwilling to return to her hometown. Before my wife and I return, please help us take care of her. I will ask my mother to accompany her, so she doesn’t have to stay home alone and let her imagination run wild.” Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao originally wanted to send Mrs. Jiang back to the countryside; however, Mrs. Jiang was unwilling, so Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao did not insist.
The chief readily agreed. The three talked about the matter in the office for nearly half an hour before Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao returned home. When they returned, Mrs. Jiang was on the phone. When she saw that Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi had returned, Mrs. Jiang happily put down the phone. She said, “Your father called. He said he wanted to stay with me in the army base and wait for the two of you to return. Oh, right! Your elder brother and sister-in-law also said that your father would bring the child along. They want us to help take care of the child in the army base during this period..”
