"Declan Lin, you're fired!" Director Jia said coldly, with a scornful smile on his face.
Declan was stunned and asked with a puzzled face, "Director Jia, why did you fire me? I'm the best doctor in Sky Hope Hospital, and I've won the Best Junior Doctor award of the hospital for two consecutive years. My performance this month is among the top three in the hospital!"
Sky Hope Hospital was a private hospital so in addition to treating patients, doctors had to source for more customers themselves and maintain their relationship with their customers. His conscience was clear with every patient he had treated. Since he had started work two years ago, he had never had a medical accident. He had treated his patients with all his heart and soul and gave them personalized advice to a healthy lifestyle. It was also because of this that Declan had a group of loyal patients who came back to the hospital regularly to undergo medical check-up and to receive treatment, which made Declan's performance one of the best in the entire hospital.
Hence, Declan could not understand what was happening. He gets up at four o'clock every morning to go to the park to distribute leaflets. He would only get off work at seven or eight o'clock every evening. Why did the hospital fire such a loyal and hardworking employee like him?
"Declan, are you really ignorant, or are you faking it? Don't you know who Mr. Fang is? His father is the vice director of the Genesis General Hospital in the city, the fifth-best hospital in the city. Do you know how powerful he is in the city's medical industry? A word from Director Fang and our small hospital will be shut down! All medical equipment suppliers in the city won't supply equipment to us! Without equipment and medicine, tell me, how's our hospital going to operate?" Richard Jia patted the table and scolded Declan angrily.
"And you, you didn't even know who Mr. Fang was before beating him up. Get out of here as soon as possible. Our hospital is too small to have such a guy like you!"
Declan clenched his fists and gritted his teeth. In his heart, he had already guessed that it was because of this matter.
"How about my salary then..."
Richard scolded instantly, "F*ck, you still want me to pay you after all this mess you've created? Just take whatever you like in this room, it will be counted as your salary!"
Declan also became angry. He kicked Richard's table and it flipped over, which scared Richard so much that his face turned pale.
"Declan, how dare you try to mess with me?" Richard scolded him with anger on his face.
Declan looked at Richard coldly and said, "Richard, I've been annoyed with you for a long time! I've endured it all this while because you're paying me. Now that I'm fired, why should I still care? If there is a boss in this room, it's me!"
After saying that, Declan slammed the door and left angrily. Before leaving, he saw a wooden ghost mask hanging on the wall, so he took it with him.
Richard was so stingy that there was nothing valuable in the office except for the ghost-face mask, which he had gotten from somewhere. It was always hung on the wall in his office. The staff in the hospital always secretly said that Richard was as ugly as the mask.
"No! D*mn you, Declan, you bumpkin. No wonder Jocelyn dumped you!" Richard's face turned pale in fear because of Declan's actions. It was only after he left that Richard started to curse him repeatedly.
Declan and his ex-girlfriend, Jocelyn Yu, had been together since university. They had a very good relationship and had always been the role model couple in the class. In their third year of studies, Jocelyn's family had an accident. Her father passed away and her mother was seriously ill, so Jocelyn almost had to drop out of school. At that time, Declan made an important decision to drop out of school to work part-time, and to cover the school fees for his girlfriend to study! At that time, Declan almost fell out with his family because of this matter.
Because Declan had not graduated from a university, he could only work in a small private hospital like this. Although Jocelyn had gotten a medical degree after graduation, all the major private hospitals did not want to hire her because she had no money and background. Hence, Declan introduced her to work at Sky Hope Hospital, and he even passed Jocelyn the patients he had worked hard to find to help her improve her performance.
However, to Declan's surprise, last night, he saw Jocelyn and a young man in a BMW, kissing each other passionately! At that time, Declan felt like he was struck by a thunderbolt. Declan was so furious that he beat the BMW guy up.
After that incident, only Declan learned that the BMW guy was Maxwell Fang, the son of the vice director of Genesis General Hospital in the city. His family was rich and powerful, especially in the medical industry. He was so powerful that a small hospital like Sky Hope could not afford to offend him.
Declan came out of Richard's office and saw Jocelyn and Maxwell walking over. They were talking while laughing and Jocelyn was linking arms with Maxwell intimately.
Declan's face darkened. He would be lying if he says that he did not hate Jocelyn. He had sacrificed so much for her, but she betrayed him in the end! However, since they had been together for so many years, Declan did not want to hurt Jocelyn.
"Declan, after so many years, you are still so naive. You don't know anything and you never accomplish anything. I advise you to not be so impulsive in the future. You will never be able to compete with certain people, and you can never afford to offend them. I have already spoken to Maxwell so he won't take this matter further, nor will he ask you to pay for any compensation. You should behave yourself in the future." When Jocelyn and Maxwell saw the angry Declan, Jocelyn said to Declan coldly and full of arrogance.
Maxwell did not say anything. He just wrapped his arm around Jocelyn's slender waist and started to caress her slowly, provoking Declan. In his eyes, Declan was nothing but a rogue. He did not deserve his effort at all.
Seeing their actions and hearing Jocelyn's words, Declan did not want to say anything else to this adulterous couple.
"I wish...your f*cking son without a*shole!"
Declan raised his head and tried to squeeze out a smile. The first two words sounded friendly, but when he said the fourth word, the atmosphere changed. After that, Declan walked past Jocelyn with a calm face.
Jocelyn's eyes were full of anger. She did not expect Declan to be such a person. Maxwell's face was also gloomy. He snorted and said, "What an uncultured bumpkin."
After heading downstairs, Declan went straight to the financial department, hoping to get his own salary. But when he arrived at the department, he saw that the door was locked. It was working hours, so there must be someone in the financial department. The only explanation was that, Richard instructed the people in the financial department to not be in the office, to avoid Declan in order not to pay him his salary.
Since he could not ask for his salary, Declan packed his things in his office and went home. The more he looked at the ghost-face mask on the table, the angrier he became. He felt like the ghost mask kept changing its appearance. One moment, it was Richard, then the next was Maxwell, then the next was Jocelyn. Declan clenched his fist and punched the ghost-face mask.
"I, Declan, will definitely make a name for myself one day. All the people who had looked down on me will regret their choices today!" Declan was usually a happy and playful person, but this betrayal had made him became serious!
As his fist hit the ghost-face mask, the wooden mask was smashed into pieces, and the sawdust pierced Declan's fist. Then a golden light shone from the ghost-face mask and seeped into his finger! What was even more amazing was that the wound on Declan's finger and his fist healed in the blink of an eye!
