Chapter 20 Prick Me with Needles
Qin Haodong smiled coldly. “Do you think we are in the former dynasty? Foreigners are superior to Chinese people? In my eyes, there is only bet, no joke. Whether Chinese or people of M country, if they lose, they should keep the wager.”
Nalan Wufeng cried. “No way, Mr. James is an expert of the World Medical Association. How could he kneel down to you and formally acknowledge you as his teacher…”
“Expert? Do you think he can be an expert in front of me? In my opinion, his medical skills are worthless!”
Nalan Wufeng still wanted to say something, but James suddenly knelt down in front of Qin Haodong and excitedly said, “Teacher, you’re right. In front of the magic of traditional Chinese medical science, my medical skills are nothing. I want to ask you as my teacher, I want to learn the magic of traditional Chinese medical science from you!”
Then, he put his palms together and began to kowtow.
“Come on. What’s going on?”
Qin Haodong was also somewhat confused by James’s sudden change. Shouldn’t this bearded foreigner deny his bet to save his face? Shouldn’t he feel wronged even if he keeps his wager? Why he looked like that he had picked up a treasure now?
“Besides, what is he doing? It’s not like he is kowtowing to a teacher but like bowing to the Buddha with his palms putting together devoutly.”
They didn’t know where James had learned how to kowtow. He bowed to Qin Haodong and kowtowed three times.
Although he was arrogant in his daily life, he did had a real capability, and he was really obsessed with medical skill. Today, when he saw the magical medical skills of Qin Haodong, he was completely convinced, so he immediately knelt and kowtowed to acknowledge Qin Haodong as his teacher willingly.
“Master, please accept me. I want to learn magical traditional Chinese medical science, I want to learn medical skills from you…”
James said with an earnest look.
Qin Haodong was embarrassed, the plot should not be like this. The reason why he bet to let James kneel and kowtow to acknowledge he as the teacher was to save the face of the declining traditional Chinese medical science, but he never thought to teach this foreigner medical skills.
Now as James was asking him to be his teacher, Qin Haodong still didn’t know what to do for a while.
Seeing Qin Haodong didn’t reply, James said eagerly, “Teacher, I really want to learn medical skills from you. You can rest assured that I can bear hardships. Come on. Prick me with needles, I’m sure I can bear it!”
“What is going on?” Qin Haodong felt that 10,000 South American alpacas ran through his heart and were frisked. “This foreigner’s words are so weird that he said that in a way that implicates burning candle wax and other tools. Am I that kind of person?”
Others were also stunned on the spot. Especially Nalan Wufeng, who wanted to help James find a way to deny the bet, was astonished to fall his eyes to the ground. He didn’t expect that the foreigner was emulative to kneel down and acknowledge Qin Haodong as his teacher.
“Stand up!” Qin Haodong thought for a moment and said, “I’ll take you a registered student first, but if you want to learn Chinese medicine, you must first learn Chinese well. When you learn the Chinese language well, then come to me to learn medical skills!”
The reason why Qin Haodong just proposed to take James as his student was to borrow his fame to improve the status of traditional Chinese medical science. He knew that traditional Chinese medical science was declining, and he wanted to improve its fame and status. Now the authority of the World Medical Association acknowledged a Chinese doctor as his teacher, which would inevitably cause a great sensation in the medical community.
“Teacher, my wife is a Chinese. We talk in Chinese In everyday life. So my Chinese is very good. I can learn now.”
James stood up from the ground, but still looked eager.
“Well… ” Qin Haodong realized that no wonder the bearded foreigner spoke Chinese well. He had married a Chinese woman.
“Do you know what is Yin-Yang? What are the Five Elements?
“What kind of sheep is Yin-Yang? Is it a special species of China?” James asked with a dull face. Obviously, he could only use daily Chinese language and knew nothing about Chinese culture.
“Go back and learn Chinese from your wife. When you understand Yin-Yang and Five Elements, you can learn traditional Chinese medical science.” “Don’t forget your promise,” said Qin Haodong seriously, “Go back and apologize quickly to traditional Chinese medical science in a world-class media.”
“Teacher, when I learn Chinese well and find out what Ying-Yang is, I will come to you to learn traditional Chinese medical science.” James’ original arrogance had disappeared. At this time, he said respectfully, “Teacher, you can rest assured that I will fulfill my promise as soon as I return to M Country. We must let more people realize what traditional Chinese medical science is and let them know the magic of it.”
Then, he turned to Nalan Wufeng and said, “Mr. Nalan, send me back quickly. I’m going to find those who slander traditional Chinese medical science to square accounts. It’s damn they should call such magic medical science a cheat!”
Nalan Wufeng was depressed for a while. He did not expect that the world-famous expert he had paid a lot of money for had not cured his Grandpa’s illness, but had become Qin Haodong’s student.
But things what happened couldn’t be changed. He took out a car key with a Lamborghini logo and said to Nalan Jie, “Grandpa, I sent Mr. James home. It’s my Wuxia sister’s birthday a few days later. I bought a car for her as a gift. Let me put it in your place first.”
Nalan Wushuang now realized that the Lamborghini was a birthday gift for her cousin Nalan Wuxia, the daughter of their uncle Nalan Hongfei. He must want to curry favor with his uncle by giving such a valuable gift.
Then Nalan Wufeng put the car key on the tea table next to him, and then left with the James and his assistants.
After they left, Nalan Jie asked even the health care nurses and security guards out, and again respectfully said, “Young magic doctor, you saved my life, and from now on you are we Nalan family’s great benefactor!”
“Never mind!” Qin Haodong nodded slightly and said, “The blocked meridians in your lungs have been dredged, but don’t practice cultivation skill anymore. The attribute cultivation skill of your family is cold. If you practice further, it will continue to hurt this part of meridians!”
Nalan Jie’s face changed. He had practiced this cultivation skill for many years. He had reached the realm of small success. It was really unwilling to give up. Whoever once been accustomed to possessing power beyond ordinary people, he would be painful when he lost it all of a sudden.
Qin Haodong looked at Nalan Wushuang and said, “There is indeed something wrong with your family’s inner cultivation skill. You should not practice it anymore, or you will never be a mother in your life.”
Nalan Wushuang’s look changed. She was infatuated with martial arts since childhood, so she pestered her Grandpa to teach her how to practice this skill, but as a woman, she also didn’t want to lose the right to be a mother.
Nalan Jie said eagerly, “Young magic doctor, I know you are a very capable person, can you consider ways of that? We Nalan family shall never forget your great kindness!”
Although Nalan Wushuang didn’t speak, she also looked eagerly at Qin Haodong.
“Well… ” Qin Haodong hesitated for a moment. He felt that Nalan Jie and his granddaughter were really good people. He said, “Well, let me have a look at your cultivation skill.”
Seeing that Qin Haodong promised to help, Nalan Jie immediately sat cross-legged and began to practice the Nalan family’s cultivation skill with a happy expression.
About half an hour later, Nalan Jie had run his Genuine Qi for a circle. Qin Haodong basically looked through where the problem was. No wonder this cultivation skill could do so much harm to the human body , it had too many weak points.
“Well, stop!” He said to Nalan Jie, “Your family’s cultivation skill is defective!”
Nalan Jie said, “There are indeed defects, our ancestors have mentioned that, but it is very rare to have a set of inner cultivation skill, we didn’t consider so much.”
Because of this, when our Nalan family’s descendants did not like to practice martial arts, I did not force them. Only Wushuang and Wuxia two girls liked to play with spears and sticks from their childhood, and asked me to teach them. So I gave this cultivation skill to them.
Qin Haodong said, “Well, I just saw a total of 18 defects in your family’s skill. I’ll help you revise them, and then when you practice them, there will be no problem!”
“What? You want to modify the cultivation skill of our Nalan family? Who are you? Are you a master of martial arts?”
Nalan Wushuang said with an unconvinced expression. Although she knew that Qin Haodong’s medical skill was amazing, it was not a medical practice to modify the cultivation skill. All that could create the cultivation skill were masters in their generations. Although the skill of Nalan family was not so good and there were some defects, but it could not be changed by anyone who said he could.
Moreover, the inner cultivation skill was very important. A little carelessness would lead to irreparable damage, which was related to the practicer’s life.
Qin Haodong smiled. He was one of the five emperors in the Cultivation World. His knowledge was far beyond ordinary people’s imagination. It was as simple as drinking water to revise such a low-level version of cultivation skill.
However, this kind of thing depended on fate. If the Nalan family trusted him, he would give directions to them. If they did not believe him, it would be all right. Anyway, he just cured Nalan Jie and repaid the 100-year-old blood ginseng.
Because of this, he did not speak, but looked at Nalan Jie silently.
Nalan Jie hesitated for a moment, and quickly said, “Please take the trouble to help us!”
Seeing that the old man had chosen to believe in himself so quickly, Qin Haodong nodded slightly in his heart. Nalan Jie was deserved to be called the head of Nalan’s family, he was knowledgeable and decisive.
Nalan Wushuang said anxiously, “Grandpa, How do we do this? What if he makes a mess of it?”
Nalan Jie smiled freely. “There’s nothing to be afraid of. I was given this life by this little magic doctor, and I won’t lose even if I throw it away again. Besides, I believe that the little magic doctor can certainly create miracles.”
Then, he turned to Qin Haodong and said, “Little magic doctor, would you please help me this old man to get through this, the whole Nalan family will have a great reward for you!”
Qin Haodong was less solemn than them two. He said lightly, “Re-cultivate it, and change the route of cultivation according to what I said.”
Nalan Jie sat cross-legged again and began to practice his family’s cultivation skill.
A moment later, Qin Haodong said, “Run your Genuine Qi from the Jinmen acupoint to Gall bladder Meridian and make a detour on Sevencunyangjiao acupoint…”
This way of running Genuine QI was quite different from that of the Nalan family. However, since he chose to believe in Qin Haodong, Nalanjie did not hesitate to change the route of Genuine Qi.
Quickly, he realized that Qin Haodong was right. After changing the route, the old sense of cold and gloomy did not rise from his dantian. On the contrary, he felt very comfortable.
This change made Nalan Jie more confident in Qin Haodong, and he changed his route of the rest 17 defects completely according to Qin Haodong’s instructions.
After running a large circle of vital energy, he ran twice in accordance with the new line again. He felt not only the Qi of cold and gloomy disappeared, but also the Genuine Qi became more and more thick and pure. Suddenly, there was a click inside him. He had broken through!
