Chapter 550 Johnson Gets Slapped In The Face!
In the hospital.
Johnson woke up in a daze. The dizzy man held his head and sat up. Right away, someone rushed up to him and held him up. He asked, “Captain Johnson, how are you feeling?”
Johnson frowned. “I’m fine. What happened to
“You suddenly had a heart attack. Fortunately, you were saved in time.”
As he listened to his subordinate’s report, Johnson suddenly felt rather flustered. He knew how dangerous acute myocardial infarctions were. That must have been some sheer dumb luck for him to be saved.
A doctor in a white lab coat came in at this time. At the sight of the doctor, Johnson immediately held his hand and said, “Thank you so much for saving my life, Doctor! You are really my savior!”
An awkward look immediately came over the doctor’s face. He said, “Don’t say that, Captain Johnson. I…”
Before he could finish, Johnson spoke again. “Just tell me if you need any help in the future! If it’s within my means, I will definitely get it done!”
As soon as he said that, a cool and clear voice traveled over. “Do you keep your word, Captain Johnson?”
Surprised, Johnson turned his head and looked over, only to see a woman walking in. Her long straight hair cascaded loosely behind her and she dragged her feet as she walked, as though she was too lazy to even lift them up properly. Although her almond-shaped eyes looked docile, they looked at him sharply and indifferently as though he was no more than a life-form in her eyes. Johnson’s expression immediately darkened. “Why are you here?”
The moment he said that, Nora looked at him with a half-amused look.
Next to him, Morris said, “Captain Johnson, Ms. Smith was the one who saved you. If it weren’t for her, I’m afraid it would have been very difficult for you to get past it this time!”
Never would he have thought that he would be slapped in the face so quickly. For a while, he was stunned.
It was instead everyone else who gathered around Nora and said, “Thank you so much, Nora! To think you put aside all the past grievances and rushed over… Don’t worry, we will definitely deal with the traffic violations that you were slapped with for running the red
After receiving the call, she had sped all the way over. On the way there, she ran so many red lights that even the traffic police were hot on her heels. However, she didn’t have the time to stop and explain, so she had straight-up led the traffic police into the hospital.
Morris was the one who had handled all the subsequent negotiations and other matters after that.
She was indifferent and distant, so the rest didn’t know what to say. They could only keep repeating the same thing: “Thank you for what you’ve done!”
Nora waved and said, “I am a doctor, this is what I do.”
After saying that, she checked the numbers on the monitor and said, “Captain Johnson is out of danger now, so I will take my leave.”
After Nora left the ward, everyone gathered in front of Johnson.
All of them spoke up for Nora. “Captain Johnson, Dr. Smith is really professional. Someone like her is really suitable to be a forensic expert in the department! Why don’t we ask her to come back to the team?”
“Yeah, with her in the department, if you ever have another heart attack, you will receive timely treatment…” Johnson kicked him angrily. “What are you saying?”
The man took a step back and laughed. “Captain Johnson, you were the one who said it yourself just now that the doctor who saved your life is your savior. Besides, you can’t really say that Ms. Smith violated the rules the other time. She is just a forensic doctor, so she’s not responsible for helping us catch the fugitives! Besides, nothing happened, right?”
“Yeah, that’s right. Captain Johnson, why don’t you let Ms. Smith come back?”
Everyone spoke one after another. In the end, Morris said, “Captain Johnson, if it weren’t for her, I’m afraid you would still be unconscious right now. Do you know? When Dr. Smith rushed over, your heart had already stopped beating for twenty minutes. All the other doctors said that it was useless and advised her to give up, but she insisted on performing heart resuscitation on you and fed you her pills. It’s only because of that that you were lucky enough to survive.”
Johnson looked at the people in front of him and clenched his jaw.
Nora had saved his life, but he was not grateful at all. He felt that his condition must not have been that serious. Otherwise, why would he feel as if nothing was wrong with him at the moment?
Nora must have made his condition sound more serious than it really was. That must be why his men were speaking up for her like this.
However, he couldn’t refuse to accept it at the moment.
After all, all of them had been deceived by Nora!
Johnson took a deep breath, feeling like his chest felt a little tight. He could only say begrudgingly, “Fine, she can come back!”
Morris lowered his eyes and slowly said, “She doesn’t have to ‘come back’. I haven’t processed her dismissal yet.” When Johnson heard this, he became even angrier and his chest felt even tighter.
Morris had been in charge of all of the special department’s matters all along, but he was young and impetuous, so he had only been the acting director of the special department even as of now.
Even though he had finally been transferred to the special department, he was only on an equal footing with him right now!
Originally, he’d thought that Morris would show him a lot of respect and faintly put him above himself because he was his mentor. But unexpectedly, Morris had actually said one thing and done another, and secretly disobeyed his instructions?
He was about to get angry when the rest of his men spoke in unison.
“Captain Ford, you are so farseeing! Nice!”
“Yeah, Captain Johnson had said such nasty things when he drove her away that time. How embarrassing would it have been to ask her to come back?! It’s fortunate that Captain Ford didn’t process the dismissal.”
Seeing how they were all defending Morris, Johnson knew that he had to suppress his temper.
Otherwise, how was he going to tame these men?
Johnson narrowed his eyes.
If he wanted to become the director of the special department and suppress Morris, then it was imperative that he build up prestige in the special department!
This particular department was different from the others. If his subordinates didn’t think he was worthy of his position, then it would be very difficult to get work done.
This was also the reason why he had made an example of Nora as soon as he came-because she was the forensic doctor that Morris had gone against all odds to personally hire!
Firing Nora was tantamount to slapping Morris in the face.
But now, he had instead shot himself in the foot. Nora had singlehandedly suppressed all of his fame!
In fact, he could faintly sense that the members of the special department now had even more trust and loyalty toward Morris!
No, this wouldn’t do. He had to think of a way to even things out!
By the time Nora was done saving Johnson’s life, it was already completely dark outside.
She drove straight home.
She parked the black jeep in the parking lot and entered the house. Just as she entered, her cell phone suddenly rang. She took it out and found that Trueman, who had not been in contact with her for a long time, had sent her a message.
Nora thought of how the answer that the man had given her the last time had made her somewhat uncomfortable. She wondered what he had sent her this time.
She lowered her head and opened the message. When she saw the content of the message, her pupils shrank.
