Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Butler Zhang did not expect Tang Li to throw this question at him. Being stared at by Xu Yaran, Butler Zhang broke out in a cold sweat, thinking to himself, “Madam, can you not involve me in your drama?”
What Tang Li said not only made Butler Zhang feel awkward but also the people around her.
Judging from the expression on Xu Yaran’s face, the answer was clear to everyone.
For a moment, no one spoke. The surroundings were enveloped by dead silence where you could hear a pin drop.
However, at this moment, Tang Li suddenly laughed. She shrugged and said, “Oh, people who like my husband can pack up an entire house. I don’t really have a clue who you are, and I doubt if your family is really close to the Qi family. By “close”, do you mean meeting once or twice in a lifetime?”
What Tang Li added not only did not alleviate the awkwardness, it made it even worse.
Everyone looked at Xu Yaran and thought that she was just here to be humiliated.
Xu Yaran had never interacted with Tang Li before. She heard one thing or two about Tang Li from other people, but she did not expect her to be so good at humiliating people.
She was so angry that she felt a sharp pain attacking her body, and she was determined that she would not go back home without returning the humiliation today.
“Miss Tang, I think there must be some misunderstandings. Brother Yihan and I have known each other since we were young. When we were young, we were very close. But I went overseas to study after junior high school and only came back recently. After staying abroad for a few years, I am greatly influenced by liberalism, so I don’t think there is anything wrong with the way I greeted Brother Yihan, and I certainly don’t understand why Miss Tang threw all that nasty accusation at me.”
As she spoke, tears welled up in her eyes. Those who did not know would think that Tang Li was bullying her.
The corners of Tang Li’s lips curled up, and she said magnanimously,. “You don’t have to explain to me. Only those who are guilty will explain. Anyway, I don’t know you. If you don’t show up in front of me, I won’t even know who you are.”
Hearing that, tears welled up even more in her eyes. She bit her lips tightly, not knowing how to talk back now. In her mind, she wanted to pounce on Tang Li and bite her.
Tang Li threw a look at her before turning to the group of doctors who were watching the show. “The early stages of the Azlink disease are mental, but the later stages will result in split personality…”
“Yes, yes, yes. The patient is exactly the way Miss Tang said, but…”
With Tang Li taking the lead, the few doctors started discussing enthusiastically again, deliberately forgetting about Xu Yaran.
Completely ignored by the group of people, Xu Yaran was embarrassed and angry. She was so angry that she was struggling to breathe and contain the boiling anger.
Butler Zhang, who did not understand what Tang Li and the doctors were talking about, kindly advised her, “Miss Xu, it’s almost time for dinner. If you haven’t eaten, you can go to the hospital’s restaurant. The food there is delicious.”
When Xu Yaran heard him, she turned around and glared at him fiercely before turning to leave.
Butler Zhang thought to himself with a straight face, “If I knew you were so ungrateful, I’d just leave you standing there in embarrassment.”
Tang Li exchanged a few more words with the doctors and was about to head back with Butler Zhang for breakfast.
Doctor Xiang followed along and asked as they walked, “Madam, you said before that if we want to cure Mr. Qi, we need a few more herbs. How many of the herbs have been found?”
“Just one by now, but in the next few days, we can experiment on the drug for cell rebirth.”
“Have you and Dr. Augustine developed this drug?”
“In no time.”
Doctor Xiang was excited. “That’s great. As long as this drug is proven safe, it will be a blessing for all mankind.”
Tang Li nodded. Just as she was about to speak, she suddenly heard a loud commotion from the corner not far away.
Then, she heard the doctor say anxiously, “Mrs. Qi, let’s hurry up and take the other path. Otherwise, we might get hurt by accident.”
Tang Li stopped moving and asked, “What’s going on over there?”
“Recently, a patient was sent to the hospital. His brain is injured which makes him treat everyone as an enemy.”
“Mental illness? Why wasn’t he sent to a mental hospital?”
“No, sometimes he’s fine, sometimes he’s not. And because of his special identity, he can’t be sent to a mental hospital.”
As the two of them were talking, they saw two people flying out from the corner.
These two people were wearing ordinary clothes, but their aura was different from ordinary people.
Not only was the doctor anxious, but Butler Zhang was also anxious. “Madam, let’s leave this place quickly.”
Tang Li still did not move. She only said, “You guys leave first. I’ll take a look.”
“Mrs. Qi now is not the time to watch the show.”
Just when Tang Li finished speaking, another group of people came out from the other side and surrounded the patient. Two of them had their arms around the patient’s neck while the other had his arms around his waist. However, they could not stop him from going crazy.
“Ah… I will kill you all and avenge my brothers!”
“Hou Yong, look closely. We’re not your enemies. Don’t go crazy!”
“Quick! Stop him!”
“Don’t hurt him!”
With a bang, the two people who were grabbing his body were flung away, and the other person was thrown out.
Doctor Xiang and Butler Zhang were terrified.
“Mrs. Qi, let’s go!”
“Madam, it’ll be too late if we don’t leave now!”
At that moment, one of the people who were constraining the patient looked over. When he saw who it was, he was shocked and immediately shouted, “Tang Li, run!”
Tang Li glanced at Ouyang Yi, who was so anxious that his face had turned red and then looked at the man who was obviously mad.
The man looked to be in his thirties. He was tall and sturdy with a crew cut. His facial features were tough and his eyes were red. There was a scar on his face that went from his right eye to his ear, making him look especially scary.
Even so, one could tell right away that this man was a righteous person.
Probably because Ouyang Yi was too loud, the man attacked him with all his might.
With a bang, a punch landed on Ouyang Yi’s face and he spat out a mouthful of blood.
At that moment, Tang Li suddenly asked the doctor, “Doctor Xiang, do you have any silver needles or other sharp objects?”
Doctor Xiang was terrified then. When he heard Tang Li’s question, he subconsciously said, “There’s a syringe.”
“Give it to me.”
Doctor Xiang passed the syringe to Tang Li. Just when he was about to ask her what she wanted to do, he saw Tang Li walking toward the man.
Tang Li’s actions not only startled Doctor Xiang and Butler Zhang, but also Ouyang Yi and the others.
Everyone shouted at her in unison, “Don’t go over!”
Very quickly, the mad man managed to knock down several more people. He then looked at Tang Li with his bloodshot eyes.
Tang Li flipped her wrist and the copper bell appeared. The ringing sound instantly created an invisible wall around them.
Tang Li walked toward him while ringing the bell. “Look carefully.. The people around you are your comrades, not your enemies.”
