===008 Life===

“Xiaohui, you don’t need to worry, the doctor said your illness is just a minor one, and you’ll be discharged soon.”

Huang Shujun smiled and talked incessantly, fearing that Su Hao would start to have wild thoughts.

“Yes, yes, yes!” Luo Shengrong quickly nodded.

“The doctor also said that the main reason for your illness is that you have been overworked in recent years, so during this period, you can’t read any more books and have to rest well.”

“Yes, yes, yes!”

“To help you recover peacefully, our family has moved to the hospital for this period. And since you can’t read books during this time, we’ll be here with you to keep you company and talk to you.”

“Yes, yes, yes!”

Su Hao earnestly listened, pretending not to know about his own condition, and nodded, promising his parents that he would take good care of himself and not think about anything during this time.

Then he took the time to go online and search for “pancreatic cancer”.

Pancreatic cancer is known as the “king of cancers”…

Upon reading this, Su Hao suddenly understood that it meant he was beyond help. From the perspective of modern medicine, this is a terminal illness, and there is a high probability that he won’t survive the next nine months.

As Su Hao calmed down to ponder the current situation, he realized that this mysterious universe, just like life itself, is full of uncertainties. The current understanding of life by humanity is still at a shallow level, and the majority of diseases cannot be cured, with unknown causes.

Moreover, his knowledge of the human body is shallow, with little understanding of his own health. Over the years, his pursuit of knowledge has leaned towards natural sciences, neglecting the essence of humanity – life. Even in his creation, “Universe Light,” there isn’t even a category for “medicine.”

Silently, Su Hao entered the pinball space and added a new column behind many categories, naming it “medicine.”

After thinking about it, he deleted it and changed it to “life”.

The purpose of medicine is life.

Being ill is a strong signal from the body. It is a signal from the organs and cells inside the body seeking help after being unable to withstand the damage. It is an attempt of life to seek rescue.

So, what is life? Flesh, cells, chromosomes, nucleic acids, proteins?

It is not known. We only know that life is a miracle among billions of years in the universe.

The meaning of life has exceeded the understanding of human beings as life itself. Why does it start, why does it end, and what is the purpose of living? These questions, no one can truly answer. Moreover, a normal person wouldn’t even think about these questions.

But Su Hao, lying on the sickbed, staring blankly at the column “life”, fell into deep thoughts for the first time.

Are there really no answers to these questions?

A strong desire to explore surged in Su Hao’s heart.

The next day, Su Hao casually said, “Mom, I want to read medical books. Can you give me a computer?”

“No!” Huang Shujun immediately refused without hesitation. In her opinion, her precious son fell ill precisely because he was too indulged in studying and wore himself out.

At this moment, Luo Chaoxin beside them also raised his hand and said, “Mom, I want to read books too if brother is going to read.”

Huang Shujun suddenly became furious and started to beat Luo Chaoxin while saying, “Reading books, reading books, what books are you going to read? Luo Chaoxin, listen carefully, if you dare to rank in the top 20 in your class, I will break your legs, got it? Go play from now on. If I see you reading books or doing homework, you will be in trouble.”

Happiness came so suddenly. Luo Chaoxin was so overwhelmed that he even forgot to cry even though he was being beaten.

Su Hao helplessly scratched his head and turned to look at his father Luo Shengrong, attempting to say, “Dad, I just want to read books. Can you help me get a computer?”

Before Luo Shengrong could speak, Huang Shujun immediately shouted loudly, “No, when I say no, it means no!”

After saying that, she glared at Luo Shengrong.

Luo Shengrong’s softened heart hardened once again, and he said firmly, “Yes, she’s right. No!”

Then Huang Shujun began to ramble and analyze to Su Hao why she wouldn’t let him read books, saying things like reading is harmful to health, making Su Hao dizzy.

Finally, they had to switch communication methods.

Su Hao said with a determined face, “Mom, you don’t have to lie to me anymore. I already know. I have cancer, right? I only have less than nine months left, right?”

Huang Shujun and Luo Shengrong were stunned, while Luo Chaoxin seemed to partially understand, imitating his parents by widening his eyes.

At this point, Huang Shujun couldn’t hold back her tears anymore, and tears fell from her eyes like raindrops. Luo Shengrong quickly hugged his wife.Huang Shujun suddenly thought of something, broke free from Luo Shengrong’s embrace, pointed at her husband and angrily said, “Luo Shengrong, tell me, did you, you bastard, tell Xiaohui?”

Luo Shengrong jumped in fright and immediately shook his head, saying, “It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me!”

“If it wasn’t you, then who was it?”

Luo Shengrong’s eyes darted around and happened to see Luo Chaoxin looking bewildered. He immediately pointed at Luo Chaoxin and explained, “Maybe it was Xiaoxin who said it!”

Huang Shujun’s burning eyes looked at Luo Chaoxin. “Luo Chaoxin, did you say it?”

Luo Chaoxin looked completely confused. Who am I? Where am I? What am I supposed to do?

At this moment, Su Hao watched with a smile on his face and said, “No need to guess, nobody told me, I secretly looked on when you weren’t paying attention.”

Huang Shujun stopped and cautiously asked, “Xiaohui, aren’t you upset?”

“Nonsense!” Su Hao said speechlessly, “Of course I’m upset, but what can being upset change? It can’t change the reality.”

Suddenly, the hospital room fell into a momentary silence, and no one spoke.

Seeing that the atmosphere was not right, and Huang Shujun’s tears were about to fall, he quickly said, “Mom, I know you have been good to me, but things have already reached this point and cannot be reversed. In the remaining time of my life, can I live according to my own way? I want to read books.”

Huang Shujun choked up and said, “But the doctor said there is a chance for a cure as long as you maintain a positive and optimistic attitude towards life. So during this time, don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Listen to your mom, okay?”

Su Hao comforted her, “Don’t worry, I will actively cooperate with the treatment, and I won’t let my body get too tired. I promise to only read a little bit every day.”

Huang Shujun was still hesitant, and Su Hao said again, “And mom, don’t you remember? Your son is a genius. Let me study my illness on my own, maybe I can find a way to treat it.”

Luo Shengrong slapped his forehead, and the clouds on his face dispersed. “Makes sense!”

Su Hao seized the opportunity and said, “Not only does it make sense, as the saying goes, it’s better to rely on oneself than on others. We should grasp our own lives. Believe me, it might actually work.”

In the end, Huang Shujun was persuaded and agreed to help Su Hao get a computer and buy him some medical research and life science books from the bookstore.

The condition was that he was only allowed to use it for a maximum of four hours per day, and it had to be returned after four hours.

But this condition was basically like no restriction at all for Su Hao. He just needed to get the computer and transfer all the knowledge of life medicine into the pinball space, so he could freely access it in the pinball space.

After settling Su Hao’s matter, Huang Shujun shifted her gaze to Luo Chaoxin.

“Xiaoxin, tomorrow Mom will take you to enroll in extracurricular interest classes. You should learn art, piano, dance, taekwondo, swimming, table tennis… Make sure to keep yourself in great shape, got it?”

Luo Chaoxin felt like he had fallen from heaven into hell.
