Chapter 4: Left with one breath
But now, the child was asking her to spend money to get a doctor? This thing was even more painful than cutting her own flesh .
However, when she thought her third daughter-in-law will die due to untimely treatment . Her heart began to feel nervous again . What should she do if this dead girl reported her crime and the officials came to arrest her?
Although money is important, it can only be spent when a person was still alive .
“Okay, I’ll find a doctor for her . ” Old Lady Bai gritted her teeth and said . She will find a doctor once the villagers have scattered . And at that time, she will tell the doctor to only use the most affordable medicine to just ensure the person will not die .
But, who would have thought, an actual doctor joined in the crowd . Or maybe, he was already expecting this to happen, so he had a medicine box with him .
Doctor Lu squeezed out himself from the crowd and immediately approached the semi-unconscious Zhao Lan: “You don’t need to go . I happened to pa.s.s by in here . I will check her condition . ”
When Doctor Lu checked Zhao Lan’s injuries, his frowned eyebrows relaxed a bit .
But, when he looked up to see the old lady, his face becomes ugly: “Old lady, I must say, you are really harsh . This person was only left with one breath . If you want her to survive, we had to feed her with ginseng soup . I will also give her acupuncture treatment to help her a bit more . ”
Hearing the nonsense of the doctor, Bai Zhi wanted to laugh at him, but she dared not to do so .
Old Lady Bai has been a bully in their entire village . But, this old doctor has never been bullied by her before .
Old Lady Bai stared at Doctor Lu suspiciously, and said: “How can that be? She is my daughter-in-law, so why wouldn’t I know her? This woman’s skin and flesh were thick . So, how can a few hits of stick leave her with one breath? Are you trying to scare me?”
As soon as Bai Zhi heard this, her blood started to boil .
This dead little girl Bai and Zhao Lan had never lived a good day in this so-called home . All they do was nothing but work all day . However, once the member of the family gets angry, no matter who, they will bend their depressed mood unto their body . They will hit them, nonstop . The old lady sees it, but it seems like a natural event for her .
Anger rage from her chest . There were so many people in the scene, so how could Bai Zhi let the old woman just go?
“Grandmother, niang is almost dying . Can’t you see it? Please, I beg you . Niang work all day like a horse for the sake of the family . So, please save my niang . ”
Doctor Lu knitted his eyebrows and looked at the old lady: “If you want her to be cured you have to tell me your decisions right now . It will take some time to concoct a medicine and apply acupuncture treatment . If you delay further, she might even breathe her last breath . ”
When Mrs . Liu heard this, she hurriedly pulled the sleeve of her mother-in-law . “Niang, let her get treatment . Don’t be disheartened, we can collect again the money from them . If she died, we will not only have nightmares, but we will also get into prison . ”
This old woman was now in the old age, so it doesn’t matter if she gets into prison, but she was different . She was still young . She doesn’t want her life to be spent in prison, just because of a few pieces of money .
At this time, everyone’s eyes were staring at the old lady . Old Lady Bai knew she had no other choice, so she nodded her head: “Okay, cure her, but I don’t have a money right now . Let me owe you this one first . ”
Doctor Lu frowned . “The consultation fee can be own . After all, we are all from the same village . But, the money for the medicine cannot . ”
