At the General Hospital.
When Huo Zhi arrived at the entrance to the Emergency Department, he noticed that everyone from the Elders’ Association was present.
“What happened?” Huo Zhi looked at them.
Just as Elder Bi was about to answer, the door of the operating theater opened and the doctor walked out. The group ignored Huo Zhi and looked at the doctor.
They did not have to say anything.
The doctor bowed respectfully. “After Elder Leng’s skin implant surgery, she came down with a high fever. All her skin implants have decayed, causing her current condition to worsen.”
“Skin implant surgery is just a minor surgery.. How did it turn out like this?” The Head Elder’s voice was cold and deep.
The doctor shook his head. “Skillswise, we definitely did not do anything wrong. We are not sure why Elder Leng’s body is rejecting the artificial skin implants. We are still trying to find the reason. The results are not out yet.”
“Trash!” Elder Bi berated coldly.
The doctor lowered his head as he shuddered in fear. There was a layer of sweat on his forehead.
The Head Elder looked inside the Emergency Room, deep in thought.
Leng Xuan had a special physique. Even if she did not have the best physique on Jijing Island, her body shouldn’t be reacting like this.
It was outrageous to think that a skin implant surgery would worsen her condition.
Unless someone tampered with the surgery…
However, the hospital was managed by the medical association. This place was Leng Xuan’s territory. Who would dare to do something to Leng Xuan on her own turf?
Huo Zhi placed one hand in his pocket. “How is Leng Xuan now?”
“Elder Leng is no longer in critical condition. We will confirm the treatment plan again and arrange the next surgery. But…” The doctor looked like he had something to say, but he stopped himself.
“But what?” Elder Bi did not look happy.
Anxious, the doctor pinched his fingers. “Given how her body rejected the skin grafts, the success rate of the follow-up surgery might be… very low.”
Few were brave enough to stand in front of the Elders’ Association to deliver bad news. Huo Zhi thought that the doctor was exceptionally brave. If the chance of success was low, then it could be assumed that the success rate of the skin graft surgery itself was 0.
The burns on Leng Xuan’s body were so serious. If she did not get skin implants, how could she possibly show herself in public?!
Instantly, the atmosphere along the corridor became suffocating. Breaking out in cold sweat, the doctor did not dare to make any noise.
Huo Zhi glanced at the Emergency Room. “What about Old Master Leng and Leng Yun? How are they?”
The doctor answered, “Similar to Elder Leng, their surgeries have also failed. But their injuries are not as bad as Elder Leng’s.”
Huo Zhi looked at the doctor. “Contact all the experts and arrange appointments with them. Let’s find out the reason first.”
“Okay.” The doctor bowed before turning around to leave.
After the doctor left the nurses pushed a mobile hospital bed out. Laying on the hospital bed, Leng Xuan was wrapped in gauze, barely recognizable.
Huo Zhi’s gaze was cold.
The Head Elder tilted his body to the side. With hands behind his back, he stared at Huo Zhi with clear and sharp eyes. “Did you do it?”
It was impossible for Huo Zhi to sit still and do nothing when Gu Mang was injured.
The only person capable of tampering with Leng Xuan’s surgery was him.
Huo Zhi met eyes with the Head Elder and smiled. “If I was the one who did it, she wouldn’t have made it out of the blaze alive. Don’t forget that I also helped save her life.”
The Head Elder narrowed his eyes. “Other than you, who else is capable of tampering with the surgery?”
Gu Mang and Gu Si’s arms were not long enough to reach the hospital.
“Do you think you can find the culprit by standing here?” Huo Zhi said coldly. Then, he turned to the bald man. “Look up all the doctors who have been in contact with Leng Xuan for the past few weeks. Investigate them one by one.”
“Yes.” The bald man gestured with his hand as he led a group of people to investigate.
