“If I’d known it’s an illegal project, I won’t be involved.”
A story of MU, a 20 year-old-man, an exchange student working as an interpreter in a Y country.
Being an interpreter was MU’s common job. One day MU got a phone call from his uncle from X country, his hometown as well, “Hey brother, please help my friend, an old man, he needs an interpreter in the hospital.”
Because it’s his uncle order, it doesn’t take a long time for MU to say yes. He just agreed to say yes, moreover hearing that this old man is the family of a big company in X country. Being this family’s interpreter was an honor for him, and a good way to expand his networking too.
Long story short, MU pick this old man’s family in the airport. He met this old man and his wife and another local person from Y country who accompany this little family. Y country is the country they are at right at that time. Let’s name this local Y person as NG.
They were heading to a hospital. For intermezzo, this old man’s wife brought so many cash in her big black luggage! All is money.
This old man undergoes treatment for several days in the hospital. MU felt strange because this old man didn’t look sick at all. He is all too well. He can move, walk as usual even eat heartily.
The second strange thing is the hospital receipt. The nurse always gives the receipt to NG. And when MU see the price, the hospital didn’t really write it in detail. Sometimes it’s even too cheap! It looks like they were hiding something and MU not sure what it is.
The third strange thing is, this family isn’t allowed to speak X language anywhere inside the hospital outside their room. Anyway, their small room is located at the very corner of the third floor which is only be filled by them. That room has 3 beds, but it is only be filled by them. It’s quite strange remembering the price is quite cheap.
That’s how it runs for around 1 month. It looks like their existence is being hidden. After having treatment for around 1 month, this old man needs to move to another city, Z city. It took around 8 hours of transportation by car. MU didn’t really understand what’s happening until they arrived at Z. The mystery of the strange things getting more clear there.
MU’s guessing was right. This old man wants to do heart transplantation. And NG is the broker! She is providing illegal healthy organs of people. And this time, NG provides a healthy heart for this old man. That’s why this old man needs to live healthily, to be able to have heart transplantation.
NG got the heart from a drug dealer. For emphasizing, he is just a dealer, not a user. This dealer has around the same height and weight as this old man. That’s why he is qualified. Moreover, his heart is also healthy.
Don’t ask me how NG got the heart of this dealer. Even MU didn’t know. Both I and MU also wondering how NG got this illegal heart! And also other body organs too?
Long story short, this old man got an operation at Z city. It takes around 2-3 days, a bit longer than usual. His wife and MU got so insecure waiting for the operation result. Surprisingly, it went good. This old man slowly getting better after the operation. The heart transplantation went successful! He just needs more time for recovery.
During his recovery, this old man can’t speak. He has a kind of tool connected to his throat. It makes him unable to speak his words out, so he just communicates by doing lip pronouncing.
It all went as usual until a tense talk happened in their room. This old man speaks to MU and his wife, with no voice, only lip pronouncing, it took around 2-3 times for MU to understand, the message is something like this, “Please be careful when you are speaking. Someone around us understands X language. She is putting her eyes on us.” MU got really surprised and then translate it with a small volume of voice to this old man’s wife.
His wife’s reaction was unpredictable. She becomes so shocked that she re-speak loudly his husband’s question. “Who? Who is that person?”
Soon after that, this old man’s face looked so pale and angry. Moreover, at that time, NG the dealer, who doesn’t understand X language at all, notice that something super strange is happening, walk closer from the edge of the bed to the head side of this old man, “Panicky and loudly asked, “Why? Why? What happens? Why you all suddenly so strange?”
This situation messed up everything. Chaos.
After that situation, the health of this old man getting worse. Around 3 weeks later, this old man die. If that conversation didn’t happen, maybe that old man won’t die that day. It seems like the hospital wants to protect their reputation. After conducting an illegal operation which is actually successful and cause this old man stay alive, the hospital found out that someone knew about this. In order to keep the hospital’s name clean, the hospital slowly kills this old man with their treatment and or medicine. This is a personal assumption.
Anyway, the story hasn’t ended yet. This one made me surprised as well. After this old man dies, it is left 3 people: MU the interpreter, NG the organ broker, and this old man’s wife.
Three of them were at a lift. Just 3 of them. NG was standing behind MU and this old man wife. Suddenly, this wife smelt an uncomfortable thing, she automatically asked MU, “Do you smell corpse’s smell?”
After that, both MU and the wife of this old man see their behind. They saw NG keep holding his head, like tightly grasping her hair, withholding her head to make it stay there and not detached from her neck, keep praying and withstand the pain. After the lift door opened, she quickly runs outside and loudly praying.
Since that situation, MU never wanted to be an interpreter in the hospital. No more. Thank you, next.
