Closed on Wednesday

The car slowly stopped next to the only clinic in town. He endured the abdominal pain and observed it carefully for a while before getting out of the car and knocking on the door.

After knocking for a while, someone inside shouted angrily, “Closed on Wednesday!”

He cursed to himself and looked around helplessly. This was a small town on the edge of the Gobi Desert. Although it was noon, the doors were closed and no one could be seen on the street.

He paused for a while, but continued to knock on the door, “I’m sorry, I have an emergency, please take a look!”

The door was slammed open, and a thin man stared at him coldly, “Closed on Wednesday, don’t you understand?”

The man closed the door so viciously that the door panel nearly hit him in the nose.

A nameless fire burned in his heart, how could he ever suffer such humiliation?

If it wasn’t for running away now…

He calmed down for a moment, then knocked on the door again, softly but patiently.

The door was opened again, and the man’s eyes were full of mania, “You motherfucker…”

A gun pressed against the man’s chin, and he asked with a smile, “Want to see a doctor? Or do you want to be shot?”

“Yes, I’m sorry, my ancestors have a legacy, I must rest on Wednesday, no, I won’t see a doctor.”

Although he was frightened and stuttered, the man’s stubbornness was beyond his imagination.

He took out a stack of money from his pocket with his left hand, and threw it gently in front of the man. The man’s eyes shrank obviously, “Well, it’s not impossible to disobey Zu Xun.”

He followed the man into the clinic.

About an hour later, the man helped him into the car, and the car drove all the way to the depths of the Gobi. The man helped him down, “Our family used to run a butcher shop.”

The man said to him while smoking a cigarette, in a cordial tone like talking to an old friend, “It was later changed to stealing and selling human organs, but the rule of not working on Wednesdays has not changed.”

The man took a hard puff, then crushed the cigarette butt into his empty chest, “You forced me to break the rules.”
