Chapter 115 The Diagnose Fee
After Qin Haodong said that. He had Li Changzhi extend reached out so that he could feel his pulse.
Two minutes later, he took back his right hand. Shi Kuohai asked, “How is he, Dr. Qin? Is it curable?”
Qin Haodong said, “It’s no big deal, and I can cure it now.”
“Now, as in here?”
Li Changzhi felt it unbelievable because he had had his legs check by lots of famous doctors, but none of them can work it out. Now the young man said he could deal with it right here, right now. He might thought the young man was a fraud if he didn’t cure Shi Kuohai.
“Just in here, within a few minutes.”
Qin Haodong said as he let Li Changzhi put his legs on the stool before him and rolled up his pants. He took out the needle bag from his pocket and began to treat the disease with the needle. Five minutes later, he took back the silver needles and said, “OK, now try to walk a few steps.”
“That… that’s all?”
Li Changzhi’s face was full of disbelief. He tried to stand off the chair and walk. The injured foot of his used to hurt as long as it touched the ground, but now after a few steps, he still felt nothing. He tried to jump. It didn’t heart, instead, he felt it much stronger than ever.
“Magic doctor, what a magic doctor!” After his joy, Li Changzhi asked, “Dr. Qin, what is wrong with my leg? Why the doctors in big hospitals didn’t cure me while you did it so easily?”
Qin Haodong said, “After your leg was hurt, the broken bones had been set, but your nerves and meridians remained hurt. What’s more, you didn’t have enough rest all those years, so the injury accumulated. Ordinary doctors have no idea about what meridians are, neither could they find the cause of the disease.”
“What I applied just now was called the Rejuvenation Acupuncture. It was the best way to repair the damaged tissue and meridians. Now the meridians and nerves of your legs have been restored, so they won’t hurt anymore.”
“Magic doctor, what a magic doctor! I am so impressed!” Li Changzhi praised him and said, “Dr. Qin, just calculate the consultation fee, and tell me how much you need.”
Qin Haodong looked at Li Changzhi. His clothes were simple enough to imply that he was not a rich man. So he said, “Let’s forget about the consultation fee, but I need you to promise me one thing.”
Li Changzhi’s expression change upon hearing those words, he said, “Dr. Qin, I’m a man of principle. So just charge me, no matter how much you want. Let’s drop the promise.”
Qin Haodong smiled. Shi Kuohai said that Li Changzhi was an honest and upright man, and he doubted it at the first place. However, now it seemed it was true.
He said: “Secretary Li. I haven’t even said what it is yet. Don’t just turn me down in such a hurry. It’s nothing huge. It’s my sister, the young girl you saw just now. She had passed the Civil Servants Exam and will work in the Sanitary Bureau of Jiangnan City. From now on, she would be one in the government.”
“I’m not asking you to promote her or treat her in a different way. I just want you to give her a chance to show her talents.”
Li Changzhi relaxed after hearing what Qin Haodong said. He the answered, “I can promise you that, because I’ll never let the talented be buried. But I insist to pay you the fee.”
Qin Haodong smiled and said: “Well, let’s make it 100 yuan.”
He knew Li Changzhi would never give up until he was charge. So he charged 100 yuan symbolically. The three finished the pleasant meal. Li Changzhi and Shi Kuohai went back to Jiangnan City, and Qin Haodong was back to the clinic.
It was almost mid-night when he was back at home. The room was dark because the old couple must’ve gone to bed. He told Wang Rubing to tell the old couple that he was safe when they left the crime squad so that the two wouldn’t worry about him.
He walked back to his own room gently, trying not to wake up his grandparents. After he entered the house, he turned on the light.
When the lights were on, Qin Haodong found out in surprise that a woman was lying on his bed. She was in pink gallous pajamas, revealing his sexy collarbone and smooth shoulders. The two “mountains” on her chest was spectacular, and the rift in between was seemed so deep. The lower hem of the pajamas was short, covering only the key parts. The two straight and slender legs looked so seductive under the light.
The woman was sleeping in bed, but the light seemed to have woken her up. She sat on the bed and pulled aside the hair on her face. Qin Haodong found it was his sister, Wang Rubing.
Wang Rubing seemed to be shy when she found Qin Haodong was staring at her. She yelled, “What are you looking at!”
“Since when you’ve grown up so well, you big-head and skinny-body bean sprout?” Qin Haodong asked, “And what are you doing in my room in the middle of the night?”
Unlike the plump and sexy woman she was now, Wang Rubing used to be skinny. That was why Qin Haodong always joked about her and called her bean sprout. As the old saying went, “A girl changes eighteen times before reaching womanhood”. It had taken her barely one year to change so sharply.
Wang Rubing got off the bed and went to Qin Haodong. She protested and asked, “Who are you calling bean sprout? You’re so ungrateful! I was ugly because you stole my milk.”
“Well…” Qin Haodong went speechless for a moment. The two used to bicker a lot and that was what Wang Rubing always said. It was OK because she was skinny back to then. Now that her chest got plump, Qin Haodong found that it was really rich when she said that.
Wang Rubing wasn’t aware of what was going on. She continued and said, “Mom favored you and feed you with all her milk, that was why I’m short. My dream was to be a model, but you ruined it.”
Life was difficult for Zhang Lanxiang back to then because she had to feel two children at the same time. Therefore, Wang Rubing grew slower than other kids at the same age. Now she reached 1.65 meters. She might not qualify for a model, but she was taller than most of her age.
“Alright, that’s my fault. I’ll send you a cart of nice milk to you tomorrow.” Qin Haodong smiled cheekily, “Sister, why are you staying up so late and coming to my room.”
“You think I want to come. Mom was worried that you’ve drunk too much, and asked me to make you some honey water. You’re so ungrateful.”
Qin Haodong’s heart was warmed when he felt the caring of his family. He said, “I know you’re being nice, and you’re the nicest to me in this world. I’ll protect you from everything if you go to Jiangnan City.”
“That’s more like it.” Wang Rubing was very satisfied with his attitude and asked, “Now tell me how you made that much money. Are you being kept by someone?”
“Being kept?” Qin Haodong felt so awkward. He wondered if he really looked like a gigolo boy that much. He asked, “How’s that possible? I was too expensive for those women to keep.”
“Then tell me. Where does those money come from?”
Qin Haodong explained, “I’m a doctor. Those money were paid by patients.”
“Save it. Grandpa has been a doctor for his whole life, and he has never made that much money.” Wang Rubing said with disbelief.
“Whatever you may think, just go back to your room. I’m going to sleep.”
“Hum. Nobody cares. Honey water’s on the table.”
Wang Rubing said and left.
Qin Haodong gulped down the honey water on the table. He was comforted at once. He fell in the bed and slept away the whole day’s tiredness.
When he was sleeping safe and sound the next morning. Zuo Lanzhi dragged him out of bed.
“What’s this for? Grandma?” He asked.
Zuo Lanzhi said, “Now get ready for the blind dates today.”
Till then Qin Haodong remembered that blind date thing. He asked reluctantly, “Can we just not go, grandma?”
“Of course you can’t, I’ve already made an appointment with the woman.”
“But isn’t this a little early?” Qin Haodong said.
“Do you know what time is it now? Now eat your breakfast and be ready. You’re the man and you can’t be late. I see no bad getting there early.”
Qin Haodong knew he would never be able to hide away from this when he saw the seriousness in the old lady’s eyes. He had no choice but go for it. After the breakfast, he left home with Zuo Lanzhi.
“Grandma, how many women did you arranged for me?” Qin Haodong asked.
”Zuo Lanzhi answered happily, “Kid, you have to be careful when going to blind dates. Don’t take too many in a day. I arranged three for you today. The one in the morning was introduced by Grandma Wang; the one at noon, by Grandma Li; the one in the afternoon, by Grandma Zhang.”
Qin Haodong felt embarrassed. It looked the old lady had arranged dates for him not only today, but also days after days in the future.
Soon they arrived at a cafe and was going to see the date introduced by Grandma Wang. Qin Haodong had seen her photo, it had been photoshopped, but generally speaking, she looked just fine.
Zuo Lanzhi asked Qin Haodong to wait inside. She sat on the across the cafe. Qin Haodong went speechless watching the grandma waiting outside. It looked like he would never be able to leave the cafe before he finished all the dates.
The time was set on 9: 00 a.m. Ten minutes later, the woman was still missed. Qin Haodong was so upset. At that time, his phone rang. He checked it and found a strange number.
He thought it was that woman; however, when he answered it, a man was speaking.
“Is that Qin Haodong, Mr. Qin?” He asked in a very polite tone.
“Yes, it’s me. Who’s that?” Qin Haodong asked.
“You may not know me, Mr. Qin. I’m Xu Jinkai from Jiangnan No.1 Housing Estate Company.”
Qin Haodong had heard about the company before. The two most well-known construction companies in Wufeng County, one was Hong Tianbao’s Tianbao Construction Company, and the other one was Jiangnan No.1 Construction Company.
Tianbao Construction Company was famous because Hong Tianbao raked in exorbitant profits; on the contrary, Jiangnan No.1 was a legal construction company which earned its reputation with its nice construction quality.
Qin Haodong asked: “Boss Xu, what can I do for you?”
Xu Jinkai said respectfully, “Here’s the thing, Mr. Qin. The renovation of the old street was handed over to us after Hong Tianbao was turned in. I was to discuss something about the relocation with you.”
Qin Haodong said to himself that those businessman moved really fast. Hong Tianbao was turned in yesterday, and now the new move had been made. He was bored anyway at this moment, so he sent over his address.
Xu Jinkai’s was moving fast, indeed. In five minutes, a black Mercedes Benz pulled over in front of the cafe. A middle-aged man in his forties entered the cafe.
“Nice to meet you, Mr. Qin!”
Xu Jinkai sent his warmest greetings when he saw Qin Haodong. Then he reached out his right hand.
Qin Haodong shook his hand and said, “Mr. Xu, what do you want to discuss with me?”
Xu Jinkai said, “Your family house is involved in the renovation of the old street. I want to know the requirements for Mr. Qin’s relocation.”
