For doctors, it was common to have surgeries every day.

Therefore, when he received a call from the director in the middle of the night to ask him to go back to work overtime, Lu Yan had no complaints.

After all, his excellent surgical skills were recognized by the whole hospital since he was young and could perform many surgical procedures. Whenever there was an intractable disease, the director always liked to ask him for help.

However, todays surgery seemed to be a little different.

That was the happiest day of his life.

“…Sorry.” The little nurse lowered her head.

Lu Yan comforted her, “Its okay. I actually dont care.”

Doctor Li, who was also in the same operating room, looked around and nervously took out his mobile phone.

“My friend is a reporter and was sent to H City. He sent it to me in the middle of the night.”  

Lu Yan couldnt help but look closer.

The video was very shaky. Looking at the angle, it looked like a sneak shot.

The lens was facing the ground. It was night, the street lights were on, and the military explosion-proof shield glowed with cold light. There were faint cries and gunshots in the background.

The lens slowly moved up.

When they clearly saw what was pointed at by the gun, everyone present couldnt help but take a cold breath.

“Thats… What is that?”  

In Lu Yans cognition, the distortions caused by pollution disease usually manifested as physical deformities, such as growing tumors, bending bones, abnormal brain development… but at least, they still retained a human shape.

However, it was difficult to tell if the thing in the video was still a person.

Under the dim light, there was a vague figure standing at the entrance of the office building. This thing had no head and tentacles sprouted from its neck. Its whole figure looked like a strangely growing tree.

These tentacles spread all around and a dead person hung at the end of each tentacle. Blood dripped on the marble slab, making a terrible noise.

“—Prepare! Set fire!”  

An officer shouted, with an unconcealable fear of the unknown in his voice.

Fierce gunfire sounded and the hail of bullets was dense as if it was raining. These ammunitions pierced the monsters body and blossoms of blood exploded one after another. Its body was almost blown into mud.

The monster fell to the ground. There was no movement or sound for a long time.

Someone in the video asked, “Is it over…?”  

However, the next second, the group of tentacles broke free from the mud and slowly moved forward.

The video was cut off and it was completely dark.

In the surgical preparation room, everyone present fell into a long silence.

“Theyre just simply filming, arent they? How could there be such a thing.” As if to embolden himself, a resident doctor looked disdainful, “Its a naked-eye 3D, right? Its done pretty good.”  

“But, what if its true? Distorted people have appeared for several years… Although they have a small impact each time, but…”

Doctor Lis face was pale. He just held his arm and shook his head.

Lu Yan didnt speak. He had a “Yan”3 in his name, but he was unexpectedly taciturn.4

He was putting on acrylic gloves on himself when the door of the preparation room was pushed open again.

The director came in accompanied by three unfamiliar people.

With just a glance, Lu Yan realized one thing: these people must be soldiers.

They had a heavy aura of slaughter on their bodies, had straight backs, and their every move was carved out of the same mold.

The director was always cheerful, like a Maitreya Buddha, but now, his expression was heavy and frightening.

He looked around and sternly said, “These surgical gowns are not enough. Put on Level 3 protective clothing!”  

A young resident doctor was taken aback, “Is it so serious? Could it be Ebola?”5  

Next to the director, a young man took the lead and said, “Excuse me. Im Lin Sinan. The patient this time is my team member. He unfortunately suffered from a pollution disease in the process of solving the Pollutants in H City. We hope that his diseased part can be surgically removed. Before that, you need to sign a confidentiality agreement. It is in accordance with the Principle of Complete Autonomy.”  

The little nurse timidly asked, “…Is it nuclear pollution?”  

Lin Sinan turned his head and gave her a profound look, “No. If possible, I also hope its nuclear pollution.”

Many people present seemed to hesitate.

It was a doctors bounden duty to treat patients, but if their lives got involved, they had to weigh everything.

Lu Yan asked, “Where should I sign?”  

The director wiped the sweat from his forehead and took out the confidentiality documents he had prepared long ago.

Lu Yan took a quick glance. It was nothing more than asking doctors not to disclose the contents of the operation to others, not to take photos, and not to mention it to the public.

He simply signed his name.

In the end, only three doctors —the director, Lu Yan and Doctor Li— and two nurses were left for the operation. There was no anesthesiologist.

In addition to them, there was also a special assistant, Lin Sinan.

It was impossible for outsiders to enter the operating room. It was just that the situation was special, so no one asked much.

The little nurse bitterly complained, “If the patient is not saved, wont this person pull out a gun and directly shoot us…?”  

Lin Sinan was not wearing a military uniform yet his pocket was bulging high, clearly showing the outline of a gun.

The lights in the operating room turned on, but there was no one on the operating table.

A minute later, the two officers pushed a circular metal cabin using a stretcher.

Lu Yan couldnt help looking at the director.

The director saved countless people in his life. His name had long been in the textbook. However, at this moment, his hand was slightly trembling.

The hatch opened and a cold chill came out.

The patient was carried to the op
