“May I know what business Professor Han has with me?” Mo Wen stared at the elder quizzically. He had a good impression of this elder, but now that the patient’s symptoms had been brought into check what business would he still have with him?
“Mo Wen my little friend, this old man came shamelessly to get to know you. I am Han Jiangong, a fellow scholar in the field of medicine. If you need any help in the future please feel free to come to me.”
Han Jiangong took a few steps towards Mo Wen, saying this politely.
“I, Mo Wen, am naturally honored to get to know Professor Han.” Mo Wen smiled neither arrogantly or submissively. Of course he wouldn’t reject getting acquainted with some seniors in the medical field.
“Haha, Brother Mo, you are too polite. If you don’t mind you can call me Brother Han and we will be friends of same generation. The friendship between gentlemen doesn’t look at age; the more capable one should be honored as the teacher. With your medical skill, I have to admit with regret that I cannot compare to you.”
Professor Han said this while laughing and waving his hand forthrightly.
“Since Brother Han said so, it’s better for Mo Wen to obey than to be polite.”
Mo Wen paused for a moment, then he smiled casually. He was a carefree person to begin with so naturally he wouldn’t care about seniority.
“Brother Mo is indeed frank. Today I still have something on so I will not disturb you. We should definitely meet up some other time to have a good chat.”
As he was speaking, Professor Han took out a business card and passed it to Mo Wen before going back to the ward in a hurry. After all, Lao Yun’s condition had just stabilized; there were still a series of check ups and post treatment to follow so he couldn’t leave now.
“Mo Wen, you really are a humble person.”
Shen Jing followed Mo Wen as he exited the ward, but when she saw that Professor Han and Mo Wen were talking, she waited on the side and didn’t interrupt.
“I’m not. It just so happened that there was a treatment method for this illness in my heirloom secret recipe.”
Mo Wen smiled flatly.
“Only a fool would believe you.”
Shen Jing rolled her eyes at Mo Wen. She didn’t believe what Mo Wen said at all. She was a doctor herself and was not so easily deceived. But she didn’t ask much either; everyone has their own secrets. She didn’t want to be an annoying woman that wants to get to the bottom of everything.
At this time they were not needed in the hospital and Professor Pan couldn’t leave the hospital any time soon due to the post treatment for Elder Yun.
By the time the two of them left the hospital it was already evening. Only the dim setting sun could be seen on the horizon.
Shen Jing drove out her not-too-high and not-too-low-profile Audi A8 from the parking lot. She drove up to Mo Wen, lowered her car window, and said to Mo Wen while smiling.
“Mo Wen, where are you staying? I’ll send you back.”
“You don’t need to, I can get home myself.” Mo Wen shook his head while saying.
“Then I’ll be going first.”
Shen Jing gave Mo Wen a fierce side glare as she drove away snappily. God knows how many people wanted to get into her car and didn’t get the chance. How dare Mo Wen not appreciate it.
Staring at the car driving away, Mo Wen let out a bitter smile. What was home? He didn’t even have a place to stay after he left the construction site. The capital was huge, glamorous and well-developed, but there wasn’t a single place for him here.
Taking a deep breath he looked up at the dark sky and felt the absurdity of fate. If he hadn’t had awakened the lifetime of memories, where would he be now?
“Brother Mo, wait a minute.”
Mo Wen hadn’t even walked a few steps when a crisp sound came from behind. The next moment, a slender figure swept in front of him like a gust of wind.
Yun Xiaoman was breathing heavily, her cheeks flushed red. She stood there heaving for a while unable to utter a word.
Before when her grandfather’s condition took a turn for the better, she nearly fainted with joy and her attention then naturally fell on her grandfather. Once she came around and realised Mo Wen had gone, she immediately rushed to catch up with him.
Running down tens of hospital floors had surely exhausted her.
“What’s the matter?” Mo Wen asked while looking quizzically at the cute girl in front of him as he couldn’t quite understand.
Yun Xiaoman running out of the hospital gave Mo Wen a chance to properly check her out. Before when she was sitting in her chair crying her eyes out, he had not felt anything. Only now did he realize that she actually was quite beautiful.
Yun Xiaoman was not short. At around 5’4”, she was up to the height of Mo Wen’s nose. She was wearing a knee length green dress, revealing a pair of lotus white calves, paired with matching white sandals on her feet.
Although her body wasn’t as developed as Lin Qing and Shen Jing, her younger body released a citrusy young girl’s fragrance.
“Brother Mo, thank you for saving my grandfather.”
Yun Xiaoman wiped the corner of her eyes. Thankfully she didn’t start tearing up.
“It was a piece of cake. I can’t save your grandfather anyway. I merely helped to suppress his symptoms.”
Mo Wen shrugged. As a miracle physician in his previous life he had saved countless patients, so helping Master Yun to control his condition was nothing to him.
“Brother Mo, my grandfather…”
Yun Xiaoman stared at Mo Wen with her pure clear eyes; tears rolled down her cheeks uncontrollably again. She thought her grandfather was healed, but what Mo Wen said recurred her deepest fear.
“There’s nothing I can do…!”
Mo Wen said helplessly, silently cursing himself for saying too much and looking for trouble.
“Then do you know who can save my grandfather?”
Yun Xiaoman looked expectantly at Mo Wen. In her eyes Mo Wen was a mysterious master, otherwise how could he cure an illness that so many esteemed doctors couldn’t? Maybe Mo Wen knew who could cure her grandfather.
“I don’t know,” Mo Wen honestly answered. With his current experience how could he know who could cure her grandfather. Honestly speaking only he could possibly do so, but he did not have the capability to do so yet.
Maybe after enrolling in Hua Xia University and studying this world’s system of medicine, he could then link the knowledge of the other world with the medical knowledge of this world. Maybe then he could easily cure her grandfather’s illness.
But he wouldn’t say this outright, after all it was just wild speculation. Whether or not it would be so, it was still an unknown.
Hearing his words, Yun Xiaoman lowered her head and sobbed softly. She stood stupefied like a log in front of Mo Wen. She didn’t leave nor speak.
Staring at the pitiful little girl in front of him, Mo Wen sighed in despair. What’s this?
“Even though your grandfather’s illness can’t be cured now, maybe it could be in the future,” Mo Wen said dryly.
Yun Xiaoman lifted her head instantly, staring at Mo Wen with her big eyes. Her gaze was filled with expectation.
Mo Wen’s words were ambiguous, but was no doubt a booster for Yun Xiaoman; her emotions calmed down instantly.
“So Brother Mo, when will you be able to save my grandfather?”
Yun Xiaoman’s gaze was fixed on Mo Wen.
Mo Wen’s lips twitched. He remained speechless for a moment before he said, “Soon perhaps, it’s possible I need more time.”
“Don’t worry. Everything will be fine. If your grandfather has an episode again, you can come and find me. I can still suppress the poison a few more times.”
To avoid Yun Xiaoman from constantly being at his heels, Mo Wen couldn’t help but say something against his will. Sealing acupoints with golden needles could suppress the Purplish Blue and White Flower Poison, but with each suppression, its relapse would be more severe. Even he didn’t know how many more times he could suppress it.
As for completely curing Purplish Blue and White Flower Poison, that was also something he was equally unsure of. Only heaven knows if Yun Xiaoman’s grandfather’s issue could be solved.
“Really! Brother Mo, you really are a good person!”
Yun Xiaoman, looking beautiful even though she was in tears, smiled at Mo Wen. Her mood seemed to have brightened up.
Feeling honoured for being praised as a good person, Mo Wen could only bashfully let out a dry laugh.
“Why aren’t you leaving, don’t you need to take care of your grandfather?” Mo Wen said helplessly, seeing that Yun Xiaoman still had no intention of leaving. With her still standing there in front of Mo Wen, neither of them could walk away.
“Brother Mo, you haven’t left me your contact information.” Yun Xiaoman said while blinking.
Mo Wen laughed dryly, before hesitantly giving a QQ account ID. Even that QQ account was registered by a friend of his during high school. He rarely used it, what with his condition. When would he have the time to go online and chat?
Other than that, basically he had no other contact method. He had no phone, no accommodation. What he did have was merely a few sets of clothes and a bit of savings that were barely enough for him to buy meals. He supposed not many people were as miserable as him in this 21st century metropolitan.
“Okay Brother Mo, then I’ll head back to take care of my grandfather first.”
Seeing that Mo Wen only gave her a QQ account and not even a phone number, Yun Xiaoman was slightly disappointed…but she wasn’t a girl who didn’t understand. After bidding goodbye to Mo Wen, she threw him a smile and silently walked back to the hospital.
