“What’s wrong?” Renee immediately rushed over.
“Mr. Everheart couldn’t take the anesthetic and suddenly fell into a coma. It’s an emergency,
and we’re trying our best to save him… Miss, please sign this medical crisis notice,” the
nurse explained, her voice shaky.
Only one in ten thousand people could not take anesthesia. They had operated on so many
people, but this was the first time something like this had happened, so everyone was
Renee felt dizzy as she grabbed the nurse’s arm and demanded hoarsely,” He can’t take the
anesthetic? A medical crisis notice? Is this some kind of joke?”
“I’m sorry, Miss Everheart, we didn’t expect this to happen. Please… Please sign this and be
“Why should I?” Renee sounded hysterical, and her whole body trembled. Clenching her
fists, she rushed towards the operating room. “You murderers… I’m going to kill you!”
Leia quickly dropped her. ‘Ren, calm down. There’s still hope, and I’m sure things will get
better. Don’t act recklessly…”
“Get better? How?” Renee’s eyes were watery as she said desperately, “It might turn into a
death notice if I wait any longer.”
“But…” Tears rolled down Leia’s cheeks. She didn’t know how to comfort Renee. She
wouldn’t have come up with such a stupid idea if she knew that there would be such a risk.
Haze frowned and strode forward to stop Renee, then said firmly, “I contacted the best
surgeon I know, and he’ll be here soon. He treated my grandpa and did his surgery, so your
brother will be in good hands.”
“I don’t trust any doctor but myself now… He was fine. Someone must have wanted to hurt
him, and that was why he fell into a coma. The surgery has to stop!” Renee had never heard
Quinton say that he couldn’t take anesthesia, so she felt that something had gone wrong
during the surgery. It could’ve been the medicine, the skills, the doctor, or the nurse.
Quinton was always so strong and healthy, and had survived worse injuries. It was
unbelievable that he was dying because of a mere face recovery surgery.
“I get how you feel, but we’re not doctors. We can’t act irrationally now. If you make a scene
and delay the treatment, can you bear the consequences?” Haze patiently tried to persuade
Renee. He had known her for such a long time, but it was the first time he had seen her so
scared and distressed. He yearned to hug her, but didn’t dare to.
They were more than friends, but not a couple… There was nothing he could do.
“I know, but you’ve got to trust me. There must be something wrong with the people in the
surgery room. I can’t let them go on, or else my brother’s life will be in danger. I can’t let that
happen!” Renee was barely keeping it together as she leaned on Haze for support. She
knew that Haze was being practical and all she had was just an assumption, but she didn’t
dare to take any more risks.
“Haze, I’m begging you. Make them stop the surgery…” Renee sobbed as she looked at
Haze pleadingly. For the first time, she was being vulnerable in front of him. ’Didn’t you get a
good surgeon? I trust you… I’ll only let the doctor you get save my brother!”
Haze felt his heart ache when Renee cried and begged him, so he forwent all his principles
