"What's with all this nonsense coming out of you? She's just a friend." Brian stared at him and spoke like he was going to quickly lose his patience.

"OK, then. Just let her take a good rest and give her something nutritious to eat for her health when she wakes up."

Brian finally eased up on his tension when he was assured that nothing serious was affecting Janet.

After two o'clock in the afternoon

A Lamborghini SUV car parked in front of the military hospital's gates, and a middle-aged couple walked out of it and hurried into the hospital.

"Welcome, but this is a military hospital and entry for unauthorized people is strictly prohibited."

Two soldiers stopped them in their tracks when they were about to enter the hospital.

"The patient in Room 506 is my daughter, Janet Shao." Ella gave Jane's room number. They didn't know that Jane was sent to a hospital until Lola told them what had happened.

The two soldiers looked at each other: "Wait a moment please." Then, one of the soldiers ran inside and quickly made a phone call.

He returned within two minutes' time, and said, "Please wait here, Mr. Han is coming right now to receive you."

Samuel was so concerned that he could hardly wait any longer. "Call Mr. Liu, the hospital's director, and tell him my name Samuel Shao."

Ella held on to Samuel's arm, and said to the soldiers, "It's no need. Someone is already coming, right? We'll just wait here."

No sooner had Ella finished speaking her words, and Brian, who was dressed in his military uniform, quickly ran up to them, and he asked them, "Hello, are you Janet's parents?" Then he guided Samuel and Ella courteously into the hospital.

"How is my daughter doing?" Samuel stared at Brian and was already trying to guess the relationship between his daughter and the man in front of him.

"Don't worry, Janet is just... it's nothing serious." Before Brian finished speaking, Ella already understood.

As her mother, she knew her daughter well enough, and immediately understood what had happened with her.

In the patient's room

Janet was now up and was drinking her black chicken soup.

"Dad, Mom!" When she saw Samuel and Ella, Janet put down the spoon in her hand and hastily got out of bed and walked towards them.

"Jane, how are you feeling?" Samuel held her hands and scanned her from top to bottom.

"Dad, don't worry, I'm OK, " said Janet, with her arms gripped around Samuel's neck. "Nothing is wrong with me, except for a little tummy ache, " she continued.

"You, silly child! Why didn't you tell me in advance that your period was coming? If I had known this, I definitely wouldn't have allowed you to join the military training!" Ella used to know when Jane's menstrual period came. But then Jane went to America and she lost track of it.

"Mom, Brian brought me some black chicken soup, and I feel much better now after drinking it."

"Young fellow, thank you very much for your help!" Ella delivered her thanks to Brian.

Brian put aside his cap and smiled at the two elders, "Mr. Shao, Mrs. Shao, nice to meet you. I am Brian, Janet's friend."

Brian's attitude was so modest that he left a very good impression to Samuel. They shook hands with each other.

"Dad, he's Bill's cousin, and grandpa Han's grandson!" Samuel, knew, of course, who grandpa Han was. He was even more satisfied with Brian now when he knew that he was the grandson of General Vincent Han.

"Oh, Brian, I was one of your uncle's playmate for several years in our childhood. And your uncle has also helped me a lot later on, over the years, and also your grandfather offered me great help. How is your mother doing?" Samuel knew that Brian's father had passed away, and that his mother had become so disheartened that she was not in the best of her mental health.

"Thank you, Mr. Shao, my mother is much

better now and is doing therapy abroad." Samuel and Brian chatted with one another at one side of the room.

Janet finished her soup in front of Ella, and Ella saw Brian's military uniform. His military grades indicated that he was a middle-class military officer.

"How did you come to know each other?" She looked at her daughter with doubt.

"I got to know him through Bill, and Brian also was my military training leader in these last couple of days." Janet spoke honestly.

Ella nodded, and then heard the laughter coming from Samuel and Brian. They seemed to have a very nice talk and enjoying themselves.

Then, later on, Brian escorted Janet and her parents to the hospital gates, and then went back.

On their way back home, Samuel forbade her daughter to go back to the military training.

Janet had to promise this, and wondered if she should or shouldn't tell Daniel.

"Mom, can you please ask Lola to tell Daniel that I am not going to the military training anymore?" asked Janet.

"Why don't you tell him yourself?" replied Ella. She thought this was making things too complicated.

"I don't have his phone number." She only knew his Weibo account, and she thought that it wasn't proper to send him messages on Weibo.

Ella glanced at her daughter and had no choice but to take out her mobile phone and call Lola.

Lola told the whole thing to Daniel, and he answered, "Ask her to call me back herself."

Lola told Janet all about Daniel's answer on Wechat, and Janet replied to Lola, embarrassed, "Mother*, I don't have Daniel's phone number, and I'd better not talk to him."

(*TN: sworn mother)

Then she received Daniel's private phone number, and his Wechat account, and also some other chatting accounts where she could get a hold on him whenever she wanted.

...

Janet hesitated for a while and then dialed Daniel's number.

The call soon connected, but there were no words coming from the other side of the line, not even a greeting.

She calmed herself and her emotions, and said, "Hello, Mr. Si. It's Janet Shao."

It was a very official greeting, and Daniel frowned his brows.

But still there was no reply, and Janet was not happy with this. 'Does he have the least intention to talk to me?'

"I am not in the greatest of health, and I called to ask if I may be granted permission to skip the military training." Dead silence filled the air.

Daniel didn't say anything, but he didn't hang up either. Janet didn't know what was happening.

"Mr. Si?"

"You got involved in a dubious relationship with a military officer during the training, which has had a bad impact on the company's reputation. Half of your salary will be cut off as punishment."

...

Janet tightly gripped her quilt, and protested, "Daniel Si! Why do you treat me so stringently? Must you act so vicious with me all the time?"

"Janet Shao, pay close attention to your manners!" Daniel could imagine her expressions and reactions on the other side of the line.

"Daniel, let me tell you one thing: from this moment on, I resign from the SL Group!" Again a dead silence appeared after Janet's words.

Finally, a cold voice came from the other side of the line, "If you want to resign, that's OK, but come and tell it to me face to face."

Janet stood up in her bed instantly, and said, "No problem, Daniel! Just you wait!"

Janet was so irritated that she actually forgot about one essential thing. She was only a trainee there, and had only signed a temporary contract. So, if she wanted to resign, she could just stop going to work.

Ella was drinking a glass of water when she saw Janet rushing outside dressed only in her nightgown. She asked her, "Jane, where are you going?"

Janet rolled up her sleeves and shouted: "Mom, don't try to stop me. I have to end this thing with Daniel. He treats me horribly!"
