Chapter 35 – Magical hands bring back spring

The patient’s heartbeat was rapidly weakening, plummeting to twenty in the blink of an eye.

The situation was extremely critical.

Bai Bing made a decisive call, instructing the attending physician urgently, “Inject the patient with adrenaline immediately.”

“Get the ventilator ready and increase the oxygen supply.”

“Quick, use the pacemaker…”

Beep beep—

However, before Bai Bing could finish her orders, the heart monitor flatlined.

The patient’s heart had stopped.

“Director Bai, the patient is gone. We should prepare to notify the family,” the attending physician said.

Bai Bing was momentarily stunned but quickly regained her composure, commanding, “Do as I said, quickly! There might still be a chance.”

The attending physician sighed. He had seen this scenario countless times before and knew that nothing could save the patient’s life now, but he still followed Bai Bing’s instructions.

As expected, the outcome was as he predicted.

After a series of resuscitation attempts, the patient showed no response.

“How could this happen?” Bai Bing’s face turned pale. She had intended to save the patient’s life, but she had not expected to encounter such a situation upon arriving at the ward. Filled with self-reproach, she lamented, “If I had arrived just a bit earlier, maybe the outcome would have been different. Why didn’t I come sooner?”

The attending physician consoled her, “Director Bai, this isn’t your fault. We’ve done everything we could.”

We’ve done everything we could…

When a doctor utters these words, it signifies the departure of a precious life.

These words are like a curse, feared by the patient’s family, and Bai Bing felt the same dread.

But as the Director of Surgery, Bai Bing quickly composed herself and calmly instructed, “Prepare to notify the patient’s family.”

“Yes,” the attending physician replied and turned to head out the door.

Just then, with a loud bang, the door to the ward was flung open, and a figure dashed towards the patient’s bed. By the time the attending physician realized what was happening, he saw a young man inserting silver needles into the patient’s head.

This young man was none other than Ye Qiu.

“Ye Qiu, what are you doing?” Bai Bing demanded.

“He’s not dead yet; there’s still hope,” Ye Qiu said as he took another silver needle from his pocket and inserted it into the patient’s forehead without sterilizing it first.

The attending physician, who recognized Ye Qiu, rebuked angrily, “Ye Qiu, do you realize what you’re doing? You’re desecrating a corpse! Stop it now. If the patient’s family sees this, you’re going to be in big trouble.”

“Don’t be ridiculous; the man is already dead,” Bai Bing said as she reached out to pull Ye Qiu away, but he didn’t budge.

“He’s not dead yet; there’s still hope,” Ye Qiu insisted as he continued to insert needles.

Hearing this, the attending physician’s face darkened, and he challenged, “What do you mean, Ye Qiu?”

“Are you saying my diagnosis is wrong?”

“Or that all these medical instruments are just for show?”

“Even if you want to show off, you should choose the right place and time. Do you know where you are? This is nonsense!”

“Stop it, Ye Qiu. Respect the dead,” Bai Bing urged.

Although she too wished to save the patient’s life, the person was already dead, and nothing could change that.

Moreover, if the patient’s family witnessed Ye Qiu’s actions with the body, they would surely hold someone accountable. It wouldn’t just be Ye Qiu’s problem; the entire department would be responsible.

Desecrating a body was not only a serious violation of regulations but also an illegal act. If the family pursued it to the end, Ye Qiu could face imprisonment.

However, Ye Qiu seemed deaf to her advice and continued with the acupuncture.

“Ye Qiu, give it up!”

“Death is irreversible; you can’t change anything.”

“Ye Qiu…”

“Are you even listening to me?”

Bai Bing kept trying to persuade him, but he showed no reaction. Frustrated, she slapped him across the face.

With a crisp “smack,” a handprint appeared on Ye Qiu’s cheek.

Ye Qiu’s body trembled slightly, and though his face hurt, he did not stop his resuscitation efforts.

After inserting more than a dozen silver needles into the patient, he quickly pressed a point at the top of the patient’s head, the Baihui acupoint.

About ten seconds later, Ye Qiu shouted loudly, “Wake up!”


At that moment, the patient’s body suddenly moved; his chest heaved, and he spat out a mouthful of black blood…

“Quick, save the patient!” Ye Qiu urged.

The attending physician was stunned.

He could never have imagined that the patient he had just pronounced dead would come back to life.

What was going on?

Despite his many questions, the urgency of resuscitation took precedence, and he didn’t have time to ask Ye Qiu. He quickly led the medical staff in administering emergency treatment to the patient.

Bai Bing was initially shocked, watching the scene unfold in disbelief. Then, excitement that she couldn’t hide spread across her cool face. She took a deep look at Ye Qiu and joined in the resuscitation efforts.

In the Vice President’s office.

Zhang Lili reported the latest developments to Guo Danu.

“What did you say? Ye Qiu cured a patient who had been declared dead? How is that possible?”

Guo Danu didn’t believe it, thinking Zhang Lili was deceiving him. He stared at her with an imposing gaze and said coldly, “The one thing I can’t tolerate in my life is being lied to.”

“Vice President Guo, I’m not lying to you. If you don’t believe me, you can call the Surgery department and see if I’m telling the truth.”

Seeing Zhang Lili so confident, Guo Danu began to doubt. Could it be that this was true?

But how could a patient who had been declared dead come back to life?

There was something fishy about this!

“How is Ye Qiu’s medical skill?” Guo Danu inquired.

“Not very impressive, just a young doctor with little experience,” Zhang Lili answered.

“With little experience, he cured a patient declared dead?” Guo Danu didn’t believe what Zhang Lili said.

“How much experience can a medical student who just graduated have?” Zhang Lili said with frustration, “I don’t know what’s going on. These past few days, Ye Qiu seems like a different person. He used to be as weak as a chicken, but now he’s incredibly strong. He used to be timid, but these days he’s become very arrogant, not taking anyone seriously.”

“Enough about Ye Qiu. Let’s talk about Shaocong,” Guo Danu said, “I asked you to find Shaocong. Have you found him?”

“Not… not yet.”

Mentioning Guo Shaocong made Zhang Lili nervous. She had tried everything but couldn’t find any information on Guo Shaocong’s whereabouts. It was as if he had vanished from the face of the earth.

Guo Danu scolded her without mercy, “What’s wrong with you? You can’t even find your own boyfriend. What use are you? Useless!”

For a moment, Zhang Lili felt incredibly wronged, her eyes brimming with tears.

Just then, the phone on the office desk suddenly rang.
