3524 Too Ashamed To Speak
“Hmph, who do you think you are? What can you do to surprise this old man? I will only be too ashamed to speak of your deceitful tricks.” Elder Yang sneered disapprovingly.
Lord Bai Li next to him blinked, then he looked at the woman in azure clothes in front of him and said with a smile: “Madam, don’t worry, Bai Li Bowen doesn’t like to gossip, so naturally I won’t say anything.”
Upon hearing this, Feng Jiu glanced at him, and when she saw his graceful demeanour, she only said: “That’s fine! I will give you instructions and you will do as I say. First, sort out the spirit herbs on the table, grind the leaves into juices and set them aside.”
So, Yu Chengde, who stood at the side watching, was a little dazed when he saw the two well-known figures roll up their sleeves and actually started assisting Madam Ling in this courtyard.
While researching medicine, Elder Yang and Lord Bai Li acted according to her instructions, and they watched her from time to time as she held a few small transparent bottles and concocted some mixture.
As the time passed, her two assistants also handed the medicine to her and watched as she placed everything on the tray, then she got up and walked inside.
“Bring the things in!” Feng Jiu said without looking back as she told them to follow her.
Upon seeing this, Yu Chengde hurriedly stepped forward and said with a smile to the both of them: “Please enter, I will bring this inside.” As he spoke, he stepped forward and took the tray.
The room was bright, and a skinny old man lay on the bed inside weakly. His complexion was sallow and if it weren’t for the slight rise of his chest, he would have looked like a dead person.
“Take off his shirt.” Feng Jiu washed her hands in the basin beside her and asked Yu Chengde to put the tray of items on the small table next to her.
Yu Chengde stepped forward to take off his father’s shirt. Elder Yang stepped forward to look at him, then he shook his head: “He’s deteriorated so much, I doubt he will survive past this month.”
Feng Jiu glanced at Elder Yang when she heard this and said angrily: “That’s because he met you. Now that he’s met me, naturally he won’t die.”
“You!” Elder Yang’s face darkened immediately when he heard this, feeling that his authority had been challenged. He looked at the small woman in front of him and said: “This old man will see how you can bring a nearly dead person back to life!”
“And if I bring him back to life, what will you do?” She raised her eyebrows and asked.
Feeling anxious, he snorted and said: “If you save him, I will kowtow to you three times and call you Master! I will stand outside the Yu Mansion and shout that my skills are not good enough!”
Upon hearing this, Feng Jiu waved her hands: “Don’t, you’re so old. I’m not interested in taking such an old person as an apprentice.” Having said that, she took out her silver needles and came to the bedside and said: “During treatment, don’t make a fuss or any noises. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being rude if you disturb me.”
When Bai Li Bowen heard her light voice, the doubts in his heart became heavier. What was the background of this person? The light ethereal voice carried a warning, and his heart actually tightened when he heard it, and didn’t dare to be presumptuous.
His eyes moved to Madam Ling’s hands as she pressed down on the old man’s chest. He didn’t know what technique she used, but after a while, he was shocked by the scene that unfolded before him.
