To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 8

Chapter 8 My Life Is Hard

When the equipment donated by Alec arrived at Parrington Hospital the next day, the director greeted Alec in person, showing how necessary the equipment was for them.

On the other hand, Jenny didn’t care about it. She was busy studying the results of Faye’s medical examination and discussing possible complications that may arise with other doctors in the department.

When the equipment had been installed two hours later, Jenny led her team to the operating theater, where Alec was waiting at the door. Seeing her, he immediately got up and asked, “Are you confident you can do this?”

Putting on her surgical mask, Jenny raised her eyes to meet his.

“If I say I’m not, will you transfer her away?”

Alec shut up, unable to form a response. Even if she said she was not confident, Faye still needed the surgery.

“Don’t worry, Mr. Faust. I will do my best.”

There was no way she would let Faye die on her operating table.

The surgical team entered the operating theater. As soon as the lights were turned on, tension began to build. Time slowly trickled by, and soon six whole hours had passed.

“Mr. Faust, why don’t you rest for a while? I’ll wait instead.”

Vincent looked worriedly at Alec, who hadn’t even so much as sipped water all day.

Shaking his head, Alec replied, “How can I rest when the doctors inside aren’t taking a break?”

He was quite worried because he didn’t expect the operation to last so long. He couldn’t help thinking about Dr. Walter, who looked so tiny. Could she really perform such a lengthy operation?

“Get them some food. Make sure everyone can eat immediately after the operation,” he suddenly instructed Vincent, which caught him by surprise.

It was his first time hearing of a patient’s family ordering meals for their doctor. When did Alec become so kind?

Glancing at the operating theater and thinking of the person lying on the operating table, he immediately understood.

It was all for Faye. After all, Alec promised her brother he would take good care of her. Of course, he would do something for the doctors operating on her.

Half an hour later, the lights in the operating room were finally turned off, and the door opened.

A nurse asked, “Is Faye’s family here?”

Alec got up immediately, asking, “Is the operation successful?”

“Yes, Dr. Walter said it was a success,” replied the nurse, who found it challenging to endure the operation that lasted several hours. “The patient will be transferred to the intensive care unit now. Please follow me to complete the admission procedures.”

Alec looked at Vincent, who nodded and followed the nurse. After he left, Jenny and the other doctors exited the room, all pale with exhaustion.

“Thank you for your hard work,” said Alec, approaching Jenny warily.

Although she seemed to have the occasional attitude problem, Alec decided to let it slide for Faye’s sake. Meanwhile, already exhausted from the operation, the sight of Alec left a bitter taste in Jenny’s mouth.
