Hey everyone, Addis here. I know this novel is being translated by someone else under a different name. Still, I started translating it back in January (I wanted to finish Ordinary Person first, so I took a break from it), and by the time I came back to it, I noticed that someone else had released a couple of chapters. So instead of wasting my translations, I am going to post my version. This by no means is me swiping the series from this other person. They can still release and translate the series; I’ll just be posting another version of it. Thank you guys for loving and reading BL.
Chapter 1: Chest Compressions Should Be Five Centimeters Deep
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
“Look carefully – the external chest compressions are required to be vertical, right in the middle, four to five centimeters down. Don’t be too shallow. If you are too shallow, it will not press on the heart. But don’t be too deep, you’ll break the person’s ribs, and it’s not easy to explain to people later.”
Shang HaoJia stood up from the medical dummy, clapped his hands, indicating that a group of eager interns in front of him could start the field operation practice. He himself pulled out a stool and sat down, ready to fill in the full record of yesterday’s duty.
Young and handsome male doctors always easily attracted girls’ attention, so not waiting for him to warm up the stool he was sitting on, a young girl rushed over to him.
Her companion shoved the head of the girl forward. She stammered for half a day, and her pretty face shrunk all the way to her neck, “Mr. Shang, before we came, our teacher also talked about you. And said we should not call you teacher, but call you brother – so if you’re a brother, you’re only a few years older than us? Did you also graduate from our medical university?”
“Nowadays, have they become so sophisticated in age-appropriate techniques?”
As the most popular man in First City Hospital’s Emergency Department, Shang HaoJia had obviously long been used to this overly enthusiastic treatment. Skillfully playing around the topic, his gaze remained on the paper in front of him, “Although I don’t know which one your teacher is, those old men shouldn’t have said anything good when they mention me – telling you guys about how I stole rabbits from the physiology library or boiled bones with my housemates’ pots?”
These students were still in their rotation period. To replenish more fresh blood for the Emergency Department, the entire department unanimously adopted by Doctor Shang would sell themselves for a rotation to be near him in exchange for labor.
Although Doctor Shang had no interest in this kind of non-nutritious behavior, he was strongly tempted to apply for a vacation to go to the laboratory to finish his paper, so Shang HaoJia finally chose to give in to the evil forces and resolutely took over this exalted and difficult mission.
Finding that their teacher was not only handsome but also very nice when talked to, several girls became significantly bolder. The short-haired girl on the side was pushed forward a few steps by her companion, so she stopped squirming and walked up beside him boldly.
“One of them said you put your white clothes to dry on the balcony in the middle of the night, and they ended up caught in the wind on a rainy day with lightning and thunder. You startled half of the dormitory building’s students, and finally, our teacher personally used a bamboo pole to get them down.”
“That’s Mr. Li. You might think he is fierce; in fact, he’s actually very nice. He was also in charge of the anatomy hall and never stopped us from going in to steal the morgue air conditioning during summer….”
Talking about the student’s glorious deeds, Shang HaoJia also showed a bit of interest. He turned his stool over, about to introduce these students to a series of long-standing traditions of the University of Medicine, when the office door was pushed open, “Old Shang, come quickly – there was a car accident, and a dozen people are being directly sent to our hospital. We do not have enough manpower!”
“I knew this would come – the two who finished operations with more than ninety points will come with me in case there is not enough staffing. The rest will stay inside the office, and remember not to run around.” Shang HaoJia threw away the pen and stood up, seeing the two students whom he pointed out following willingly and consciously. He did not have time to say more. He casually pulled up a mask and put it on, buckled up, and followed his colleague quickly as he ran out the door.
The ER was already filled with painful cries, and there were many people’s bodies still covered in blood.
The traffic police officer anxiously rubbed his hands. Seeing the doctor who came to help, he quickly came forward to report, “Doctor, a bus directly overturned into the ditch, but also hit a small car. The people on the bus consist of a dozen injuries, light and heavy. The person in the car is seemingly not breathing….”
“Not breathing?!” Shang HaoJia’s heart sank, and he quickly lined up the crowd and glanced over to see the frighteningly pale patient on the stretcher.
This was a very handsome patient – even though for a doctor, looks were undoubtedly thirty pages down on the list of concerns, there were still some people who were so good-looking that the rest of the list would be overlooked, this being the first item on it. He was lying motionless on the stretcher; his chest was being pressed sharply by the doctor on the side, but he remained silent, and the heart monitor on the side was a straight line.
“Why is there no blood on this face? How long has it been? Is there any trauma?”
Shang HaoJia quickly walked over and took the gloves from the nurse, putting them on. The nurse, who was frowning and desperately looking for blood vessels, looked up at the wall clock, “Twenty-five minutes in total, plus the time spent in the ambulance. No obvious trauma, no obvious blood.”
“I’ll do it. You take the blood pressure manually.”
The frequency of the cardiac compressions from the small nurse responsible gradually slowed down, so Shang HaoJia sharply rolled up his sleeves and kneeled on the table, taking over her work, “How come the IV has not been administered? Are the blood vessels too thin?”
“I have not found any yet….” The nurse on the side raised her head cautiously; her tone was tinged with some hesitation.
Shang HaoJia’s arm shivered, and he nearly collapsed on the chest of the patient under him by ten centimeters, “Not found? How can his blood pressure be so low? What is the manual blood pressure?”
“Not measurable either….”
Hearing the other party’s reply, Shang HaoJia finally could not help but sigh heavily. Although the movement of his hands did not stop, he could not help but raise his head, “Then can I ask – what is the meaning of our resuscitation here?”
Only when his words fell, anxious shouts came from outside the room, “Sir– this gentleman, you can’t go into the emergency room!”
The crowd looked toward the sound and saw a stout man rushing in through the door. The man entered the door without saying a word, pounced on the edge of the examination table, then pulled the presumably dead man’s wrist towards himself.
The Emergency Department was a year-round showcase of human emotions, and Shang HaoJia couldn’t help but guess whether the uninvited guest was planning to cry or make a scene. However, his hands were still methodically performing chest compressions, “Sir, please step back a bit to give us room for resuscitation. Thank you for your cooperation.”
The man looked at him with a slight frown and pursed his lips impatiently. He was tall, at least 1.9 meters (6’2”), standing in front of the 1.78 meters (5’8”) Shang HaoJia, and the two looking at each other made Doctor Shang’s colleagues look scared. They were planning to go forward to stop him, but the strong man took a step forward, looked at the patient’s pale face, and raised his sword-like eyebrows.
Shang HaoJia looked unmoved and glanced at his watch indifferently, “Continue to establish intravenous access and hold on for thirty minutes.”
“Doctor – that, this is actually a misunderstanding….”
In the frightening silence, the strong man finally spoke, but his tone was not the expected annoyance and anger, but rather seemed quite peaceful, “He is fine. He just saw blood and fainted. You don’t have to do anything else; I’ll take him back.”
“The patient is not breathing and has no heartbeat. The resuscitation time is not over; please do not interfere with the emergency process.”
Shang HaoJia had been working in the emergency room for two years and had seen many families who had their loved ones declared dead but still begged the doctor or nurse to continue resuscitation, but this was the first time he’d seen a family member who kept saying that the person was fine and wanted to take him away. His face didn’t move, but in his mind, he couldn’t help but start making up a love-hate murder drama.
The man saw he was unmoved and anxiously rubbed his palms twice, then suddenly tugged the patient’s arm and pulled hard, “Okay, okay, what are you doing here at the hospital? Are you reenacting a sad drama scene? Go, go, don’t pretend to be dead here….”
“Sir, the patient’s vital signs have disappeared; if you continue to interfere with the first aid like this, he will definitely die.”
The patient was pulled away by him, so Shang HaoJia could no longer resuscitate and quickly raised his hand to press the man’s arm. When he was about to explain that the patient’s condition was very dangerous and could not be saved even through resuscitation, the man who had been ‘dead’ suddenly moved, rolled over, and got off the table with a bang.
His movements were so light that even though his suit and undershirt were unbuttoned, he still looked quite graceful when he jumped off the examination table like that.
“Doctor Shang, I would like to apologize for today’s inconvenience – in fact, I had hoped not to cause you any trouble, so I wanted to wait until my ‘corpse’ was disposed of and then take some special emergency measures on my own. Unfortunately, the appearance of my reckless friend has once again completely messed up my plans.”
He removed the electrode patch on his chest, and his long, slender fingers deftly buttoned his shirt. Holding one hand in front of his body, he bowed gracefully toward Shang HaoJia, “I once again offer my sincere apologies for the distress caused to you today – please forget this accident. It will be dark soon, and I wish you all a beautiful dream tonight.”
Shang HaoJia had a surprised expression. He looked behind him at the heart monitor that had a flat, straight line and finally could not resist pressing a number on the phone, “Have psychiatry come to the ER, I think either he has a problem, or I do….”
