Chapter 1520: Rejected
Curtis’s consolation made Bai Qingqing feel more at ease. She put both hands into Winston’s warm pockets, and they sat on the chairs by the side while Curtis went to get a queue number.
It was now the holidays for high schools, so a lot of people came to see the doctor. One-third of them were youths. Thankfully, no one knew Bai Qingqing.
After queuing for an hour, they finally got a queue number. The three of them then made their way to the gynecology department.
Several tens of women were outside the gynecology department, and the seats were all taken. Many people were standing. Most of the patients were middle-aged married women who came by themselves. Young girls usually had their boyfriends to accompany them.
Bai Qingqing was the youngest amongst them. Moreover, with two tall men’s company, they immediately attracted everyone’s gazes the moment they came in.
Bai Qingqing pulled Winston and went to an empty corner. She leaned against him, burying her face into his clothes, and said, feeling embarra.s.sed, “I knew I should have dressed up more maturely. As expected, I’m the youngest here.”
Winston circled his arms around her body, asking, “Do you want to sit? I can sit on the floor, and you can sit on my legs.”
Bai Qingqing quickly shook her head. “No, we’ll attract even more attention that way.”
Curtis could understand her and thus didn’t get close. He leaned against the wall by himself, paying attention to the queue number being called.
They waited till noon. Bai Qingqing had been playing games all this while when it was finally her turn.
By this time, there were even more people in the holding area compared to earlier. Bai Qingqing entered the consultation room under Winston’s escort.
It was a female doctor in the consultation room. Upon hearing footsteps, the doctor didn’t even raise her head as she said, “Take a seat.”
There was only an empty chair in the consultation room. Bai Qingqing sat down. Winston stood up straight behind her, looking like a guard.
The doctor was instantly stunned when she raised her head. She then asked, “Where are you unwell? This is the gynecology department. Little girl, did you come to the wrong department?”
Bai Qingqing’s face heated up and she said, feeling embarra.s.sed, “Erm, I’m here to get an intrauterine device.”
It was so awkward! As expected, wearing a mature-looking disguise was a necessity. She was over 20 years old now. Although she was able to maintain her youth and beauty because of the green crystals, she should still have some mature disposition.
It was all the fault of her student-like dress-up!
The doctor was stunned, then sized her up before saying, “Show me the doc.u.ment from the National Population and Family Planning Commission.”
“What doc.u.ment?” Bai Qingqing was stunned. That couldn’t be, right? There were even legal restrictions for inserting an intrauterine device?
The doctor wore a hint of contempt on her face, and her tone also sounded impatient. “It’s not allowed to have an intrauterine device inserted with the doc.u.ment from the National Population and Family Planning Commission. You can only have it after getting married.”
“Huh?” Bai Qingqing pleaded. “Can’t one choose to do it on their own?”
“No!” The doctor’s att.i.tude was firm. After saying that, she went back to her doc.u.ments and said, “Next!”
Winston’s face sank. He saw the doctor’s contempt toward Bai Qingqing. If it wasn’t because she was a female, there was no way that he’d let her go.
The female doctor paused, then put on a tough appearance while feeling shaky inside, saying, “You want to beat me?”
Bai Qingqing quickly grabbed Winston’s hand. She naturally saw the doctor’s att.i.tude and felt embarra.s.sed to stay too long. She tugged at Winston’s hand and said, “Forget it. Let’s go out first.”
Winston didn’t throw the doctor another glance and put his arm around his mate’s shoulder as they left the consultation room.
“Let’s go.” Curtis’s countenance was also dark. He walked in front, opening the way for them.
After squeezing their way through the holding room, Bai Qingqing asked, “You heard it?”
Bai Qingqing sighed. “We’ve wasted half a day waiting. What should we do now?”
“Let’s go and eat first.” Curtis looked at the time and then said, “It’s time for you to eat.”
Winston also agreed, then said, “I’ll ask my underlings. They might be able to find a connection to help you insert an intrauterine device.”
