Qin Haodong said, “Of course!”
Zhao Qing said without hesitation, “Well, I’ll bet with you. Don’t go back on your word.”
Seeing that he really agreed, the people around him were very surprised.
Especially Su Hongbo, he and Zhao Qingzhong were old competitors. He knew that this guy had always been proud and arrogant. He would not agree to bet equally with him. Why did he bet with Qin Haodong? What did the young man say to him?
“Then let’s make it clear. Everyone here can bear witness. I’ll start treating Mr. Liu now.”
After Qin Haodong said that, he took out a Physique-Improving Pill and gave it to Liu Qigong. Then he took out silver needles from his pocket.
In fact, those two methods were basically a cover-up. Liu Qigong didn’t have a cold. When Qin Haodong just entered the door, he was sure that this old man was completely influenced by an evil spirit, causing a long lasting fever that he couldn’t recover from. Medicine had no effect at all.
It seemed that there was something in the ancient temple filled with an evil spirit. Otherwise, the old man would not have fallen ill.
The best way to deal with this kind of evil spirit was to use the mirror of Yin-Yang. Because of this, he dared to bet with Zhao Qingzhong.
After entering the Golden Core Realm, Qin Haodong had become able to control the size of the mirror of Yin-Yang. At this time, he had already turned it into a coin-sized mirror; he held it in the palm of his hand, quietly absorbing the evil spirit Qi from Liu Qigong’s body.
The people around were all watching from the side. Zhao Qingzhong and the doctors behind him all pouted their mouths and did not take Qin Haodong’s means seriously at all.
In their view, it was even more impossible for doctors of Chinese medicine to cure the disease that could not be cured by western medicine.
Zhou Hongbo frowned when he saw it. He didn’t know what medicine Qin Haodong had given Liu Qigong, but he could understand the needle treatment.
It was not the Rejuvenative Acupuncture mentioned by Su Hui when she came back, nor the Plum Needles Skills. This was the general method of invigorating the circulation of blood. If this method was effective, Liu Qigong wouldn’t have had the need to stay in the hospital.
Seeing this, he couldn’t help but worry about Qin Haodong. If he lost the bet, he would lose not only his face, but also the face of the whole Chinese medicine field.
Only Su Hui looked calm and her eyes were full of confidence. She had an incomparable trust in Qin Haodong at the moment. Since Qin Haodong dared to bet, he had to be 100% sure that he would win.
Ten minutes later, Qin Haodong stored away the silver needles and clapped on Liu Qigong’s chest to activate his Qi and blood with Green Wood Genuine Qi.
“OK, Mr. Liu, get up and go home for dinner.”
“Are you kidding? If you could treat the patient like this, then there wouldn’t be any patients in our hospital…”
“Chinese Medicine is truly a scam. How can you treat patients with just a pill and a needle?”
“It’s so embarrassing. Young people really are too childish. They dare to treat all kinds of diseases and take all kinds of bets. Now, he will be put in his place because of it…”
Those people behind Zhao Qingzhong were trying their best to see Qin Haodong’s failure. Even Zhao Qingzhong’s face showed he was proud. He also thought that he had won this time. Medical Sages were just people full of bulls**t.
It turned out that Qin Haodong had told him his identity secretly just then. Zhao Qingzhong agreed to bet on it because Qin Haodong was the Huaxia Medical Sage.
If he won, Qin Haodong would apologize to him on behalf of the Chinese medicine circle. It was undeniable that the reputation of Medical Sages was still very influential. After that bet, he would become the most famous western medicine doctor in Huaxia.
His wishes were snuffed. Liu Qigong, who was in a coma, suddenly opened his eyes and then suddenly sat up in his bed.
“What’s going on? Why am I here?” he glanced at Su Hui and said, “Girl, I’m thirsty. Is there any water?”
“Yes, I’ll get some for you!”
Su Hui was overjoyed when she saw that her grandfather had finally woken up. She quickly turned around to fetch some water.
The people present were shocked. “What’s going on? This old man was just in a coma, but now he suddenly woke up. Did this young man really cure his disease?”
The young doctor calmed down and reached out to touch Liu Qigong’s head. Liu Qigong glared at him and said discontentedly, “What are you going to do?”
“Mr. Liu, don’t worry. I am your designated doctor. I just want to see if you still have a fever.”
“I feel fine! I know my own body, and everything’s all right.”
After he spoke, he took the cold water brought by Su Hui and gulped down the large cup.
The young doctor first touched Liu Qigong’s forehead, and then touched his neck. He touched several places in succession, not finding the faintest sign of fever.
“How… How could this be possible?”
He was the doctor in charge, and he clearly knew about Liu Qigong’s condition. His temperature had been up to 39 degrees, how could he recover so quickly?
Su Hongbo also reached out and took Liu Qigong’s pulse. The chaotic pulse was gone; he was completely recovered.
Liu Qigong shook off his hand and said, “That’s enough. You don’t have to feel my pulse anymore. I’m fine now.”
Su Hui said, “You gave us a scare, Grandpa, your temperature was too high. Grandfather couldn’t cure you, and the doctors in the hospital couldn’t treat you, either. Finally, it was my classmate who saved you.”
“Are you talking about this young man?” Liu Qigong took Qin Haodong’s hand and said, “Young man, thank you!”
“You’re welcome, Mr. Liu. That’s what a doctor should do.”
Liu Qigong was a very cheerful geezer. At this time, his body had completely recovered. He pulled Qin Haodong and said, “Young man, haven’t you eaten yet? Let’s go to my home for a drink. I have to thank you!”
“Wait a minute. Mr. Liu, I have something to deal with.”
Then Qin Haodong turned his head and grabbed Zhao Qingzhong who was ready to sneak away. He pointed to Su Hongbo and said to Zhao Qingzhong, “Call him teacher!”
Zhao Qingzhong almost choked to death with his own saliva. He had competed with Su Hongbo for many years. To have to bow to apologize and call him teacher… No matter what, he couldn’t open his mouth.
Qin Haodong said, “You don’t want do it, do you? I recorded the whole bet. If you deny it, I’ll send it to the Internet and let all the people in the world see you, a western medicine expert.”
“No. Don’t do that. I admit my defeat!”
In the end, Zhao Qingzhong chose to lower his head and bow to Su Hongbo. “My teacher. Mr. Su, I was wrong in the past. I shouldn’t slander Chinese medicine practitioners. I apologize to you and to the Chinese medicine circle.”
It was a short sentence, but he said it with great difficulty. After finishing his words, he rushed out of the ward with his men.
“I didn’t expect that I would see this guy bow his head and apologize in this life. I have no regrets, even if I die!”
After Su Hongbo sighed with emotion, he said to Qin Haodong, “Young man, if I’m not mistaken, you’re the Medical Sage Qin Haodong of Jiangnan City, aren’t you?”
Qin Haodong was slightly surprised. “How could you tell?”
Then he felt relieved. The Medical Sage was very famous in Jiangnan City, but few people knew about him in other provinces. Those who could recognize him were the predecessors of the Chinese medicine.
Mr. Su was a professor of traditional Chinese medicine in the Shanghai Medical College. Naturally, he was very concerned about the affairs of the traditional Chinese medicine circle. It wasn’t surprising that he could recognize him.
Su Hongbo said, “Actually, when Su Hui told me that you could use the Rejuvenative Acupuncture, I guessed that you might be the Medical Sage. But I didn’t expect that the Medical Sage would come to the Shanghai Medical College to study. With your medical skills, nobody can be your teacher.
“On the contrary, you are good enough to be my teacher.”
“You flatter me!” Qin Haodong said politely, “I came to Shanghai Medical College to do something else, so I didn’t make it public.”
“Oh!” Su Hongbo said, “I will keep it a secret.”
Liu Qigong said, “Well, this is not a good place to talk. Let’s go to my home and talk while we eat.”
Qin Haodong didn’t refuse and left the hospital with them, followed by Su Hui.
Seeing that the teacher was out of danger, Gao Jinsong no longer followed. He only drove the four people to Liu Qigong’s house and left.
Liu Qigong lived on the first floor; there was a small courtyard full of flowers and plants.
After entering, an old lady in her sixties came out to welcome him. She was Zhu Chunmei, Liu Qigong’s wife.
“Who is this young man? Is he Su Hui’s boyfriend?” The old lady saw Qin Haodong at a glance. She took his hand and asked enthusiastically, “Young man, are you a Shanghai local? What do your parents do? Are you a student?”
It seemed that she was choosing a boyfriend for her granddaughter.
Qin Haodong was also speechless. “It wasn’t easy for your husband to survive. Shouldn’t you care about his health? Why do you pay attention to me?”
In fact, he misunderstood. Zhu Chunmei didn’t know how serious Li Qigong’s illness was. She thought that he had a cold and would just go to the hospital to take an injection. Su Hui did not tell her the true situation.
In contrast, she cared more about her granddaughter’s boyfriend.
Su Hui couldn’t calm down. She glanced at Qin Haodong and said with a red face, “Grandma, what are you talking about? This is just my classmate!”
“It’s good. You know each other well, and you have the same education level. In the future, when you get married, you can also speak the same language…”
Anyway, the old lady had decided that Qin Haodong was her grandson-in-law.
Zhu Chunmei had already prepared the food before they arrived, so they directly went to eat.
After the meal, Su Hongbo asked, “Little Qin, I haven’t had time to ask you what disease he had this time. How could it be so serious? And his pulse was so messy that I couldn’t tell what the problem was.”
Qin Haodong said, “Mr. Liu wasn’t sick this time. It was an evil spirit that entered his body, so you couldn’t see this when you took his pulse.
“If I didn’t guess wrong, there must be something with a strong evil spirit in the tomb. Mr. Liu is a little older and his body is weak, so it is easy for him to be invaded by the evil spirit.”
Su Hongbo said, “I see. No wonder I can’t tell anything from his pulse. Fortunately, Su Hui invited you here this time. Otherwise, Zhao Qingzhong wouldn’t have been able to cure this disease, either.”
Qin Haodong said, “Chinese medicine focuses on medical skills, martial arts, and magic arts in order to deal with this situation. However, most of the magic skills and martial arts have been lost.”
Hearing their conversation, Zhu Chunmei finally understood how serious his husband’s illness was. He actually passed near the jaws of death. She couldn’t help but say with fear, “You old geezer, I told you to retire early and live a happy life at home, but you didn’t agree. Now you almost lost your life.”
Su Hongbo said, “That’s enough. Don’t mention that anymore. He won’t die from this disaster, and he’ll be blessed in the future.”
“This time, we have to thank Little Qin. No one but him could have cured him.”
“We don’t need to thank him. We will be a family in the future,” Zhu Chunmei took Qin Haodong’s hand and said, “I didn’t expect my grandson-in-law to be so capable. He’s much better than you two old men.”
