Chapter 257 One Wanted to Learn, One Refused to Teach
“Liu Shengjun, it’s our fault, but their injuries are not serious. I will cure them.” Mieko Chiba turned to Qin Haodong and said, “What’s your name, sir?”
Mieko Chiba nodded and said, “Qin Jun, I also know a little about Celestial Empire medicine. You can cure your friends, and I can cure my subordinates.”
Although her words seemed polite, they were full of provocation.
“Really?” Qin Haodong sneered, “What you people from Nihon learned from Celestial Empire is only a smattering of Celestial Empire medicine. It is impossible for you to cure them.”
“Qin-kun, I don’t agree with you. Although my medical skills were learned from Celestial Empire, as the saying goes: Blue is extracted from the indigo plant but is bluer than the latter. Moreover, Celestial Empire medicine is declining now. You Celestial Empire people do not adhere to the treasures left by your ancestors. You prefer to learn things from Westerners. I really do not understand.
To tell you the truth, the essence of traditional Celestial Empire medicine can now only be found in Nihon, not in Celestial Empire. If you have time, you could also visit us to study.”
“You arrogant, bumptious… ”
The onlookers had thought highly of the seemingly courteous Nihon woman at first. However, when they heard her words, they were all overwhelmed by abhorrence. They immediately began to denounce her.
Qin Haodong said lightly, “You think too much. Although Celestial Empire medicine is declining now, it can’t be completely mastered by thieves like you.”
Mieko Chiba smiled. She seemed indifferent to the words of the people around her as she said arrogantly, “To tell you the truth, I am a member of the Nihon-Celestial-Empire Cultural Exchange Group. Tomorrow, we will challenge Celestial Empire medicine. If you are interested, you can come and see. Then, you will know what real Celestial Empire medicine is.”
Qin Haodong’s expression suddenly changed. No wonder so many Nihon people had suddenly appeared. They were members of the cultural exchange group. It seemed that, this time, the Nihon people had made a lot of plans, and there were many challenges to be faced. Even Celestial Empire medicine had been included. He had promised Guo Feng to attend this cultural exchange. Thus, presumably, he would see this Nihon woman again.
He said, “Well, I’m sure I’ll come and show you what real Celestial Empire medicine is!”
Mieko Chiba smiled confidently and said nothing more. She stepped on the wooden clogs and walked toward Sato Junichi. She was going to prove her medical skills to the Celestial Empire with real actions.
“Miss Mieko. Please!”
Sato Junichi bowed his head and spoke in pain.
Mieko Chiba grabbed his broken wrist. She first pressed it, then pulled and pushed it. When a click was heard, Sato Junichi howled like a pig. His wrist bone was still in two pieces. It was not joined!
Upon seeing this, the onlookers around her burst into laughter. It was obvious that the Nihon woman was modeling Qin Haodong’s bone-setting technique to connect the broken bones as fast as possible. Obviously, she had failed. This fact proved that her medical skills could not be compared with Qin Haodong’s.
Mieko Chiba frowned slightly, and her confidence and calmness disappeared. This was obviously a very simple fracture. Why couldn’t she set the bone?
She used another method to set the fracture. Sato howled again, but the broken bones were still not connected.
When Qin Haodong had broken his wrist, he had barely been able to endure the pain. However, Mieko’s torment made him hurt to the extreme.
“What the hell is going on?”
Mieko really couldn’t figure out what was wrong. She tried different ways more than a dozen times. Sato Junichi ‘s voice became hoarse from all the howling, but he was still not cured.
Qin Haodong sneered. This was his unique skill. Unless he treated them in person, the two Nihon people would only remain disabled for a lifetime.
Mieko turned to Genpachiro Yagyuu this time. Genpachiro Yagyuu shivered in fear, but had no choice but to stretch out his two arms. As a result, he howled more miserably than Sato.
While looking at the confused Mieko, Qin Haodong said with a smile, “How about that? Do you know what a frog in a well is? The little medicine you stealthily learned from Celestial Empire is not anywhere near our level.”
Mieko Chiba took a deep breath awkwardly and said, “Qin-kun, I admit I’m not as good as you at orthopedics. Please help me set their broken bones!”
“Aren’t you naive? I said this was a form of punishment for them. How could I possibly help them recover?”
Mieko frowned and said, “Qin-kun, is your friend cured yet? I think this punishment is too heavy for them and definitely not conducive to the friendly relations between Celestial Empire and Nihon.”
“It’s not heavy at all!” This time, it was Zhang Laifu who said indignantly, “Do you know what these two men just said? They boasted that their grandfather killed hundreds of people in the Nanjing Massacre. They said that Celestial Empire is a low-class nation that does not deserve to own this land. Sooner or later, your nation will invade again.
They are monsters with savage hearts. Just breaking their bones is too merciful. They deserve to suffer more!”
“We should have known that people from Nihon were not well-meaning. Get out of Celestial Empire! You are not welcome here!”
Zhang Laifu’s words aroused the anger of the people around him again.
Mieko Chiba hadn’t known about that. She turned to Liu Genpachiro Yagyuu and Junichi Sato and asked, “Did you say that?”
The two men immediately bowed their heads. Sato replied in a low voice, “I thought nobody could understand our conversation!”
“You deserve to be disabled, you idiot!”
Mieko Chiba gave the two men a fierce stare and then told Hirai Yagyuu, “Let’s go!”
Upon seeing the Nihon people finally leave with their tails between their legs, the crowd burst into applause. However, a middle-aged man suddenly fell down with a flop and started frothing at the mouth. His pale face showed his pain.
It was the middle-aged man who had just punched Li Donghai. A middle-aged woman next to him cried out in panic, “Help, help! Is there a doctor here?”
Then, she hurriedly took out her cell phone and began to dial the emergency number.
Qin Haodong walked forward and asked, “What’s the matter? Does he have a heart disease?”
The woman pulled back the phone and said in a panic, “Yes, my husband has a serious heart disease. He has already made an appointment to go to the capital the day after tomorrow for heart bypass surgery. I didn’t expect him to have a heart attack now. Maybe it’s because he was too excited.”
Mieko Chiba, who was about to leave, came back again. She looked at the man who had fallen on the ground and told Qin Haodong, “His heart disease is very serious. He can’t wait for the ambulance to arrive. If you heal my two subordinates, I can help alleviate and steady his symptoms before the ambulance arrives.”
Then, she took out a pack of silver needles. It looked like she was going to treat the man with acupuncture.
Qin Haodong smiled coldly. “I said that what you have learned is only a smattering of traditional Celestial Empire medicine. Compared to pure traditional Celestial Empire medicine, it is far from enough. I can cure him in minutes.”
“Impossible! It’s absolutely impossible! The patient’s condition is very serious. He needs heart bypass surgery. How can he be cured by traditional Celestial Empire medicine?”
Mieko’s face was full of doubt.
“It seems impossible to you, but it’s not too difficult for me.” Qin Haodong took the needle bag out of his pocket and told the middle-aged woman, “Sister, let me have a try!”
The middle-aged woman, who had just witnessed Qin Haodong magically set Zhang Laifu’s bones, nodded and said, “Brother, please! You must cure my husband.”
“Don’t worry, I promise that he will be able to walk around in a few minutes.”
Qin Haodong was very fond of this dignified middle-aged man. First, he took out a Physique-Improving Pill and fed it to him. Then, he began to treat him with acupuncture.
First, he took out a silver needle and pierced the middle-aged man’s acupoints. Three lifts, three turns, and then one flip at the tail of the needle, which quivered quickly, thus transporting Green Wood Genuine Qi to the heart of the middle-aged man.
The Rejuvenation Acupuncture was best at repairing damaged tissue and meridians. While the silver needle pierced them one by one, the man’s body stopped twitching and his face regained its former color.
“Amazing. It’s amazing. It’s the first time I’ve seen such amazing acupuncture.”
The onlookers marveled at Qin Haodong’s medical skills. Meanwhile, the middle-aged woman took a long breath, finally feeling relieved.
Mieko was puzzled. She often boasted that she was good at various needling methods of acupuncture. However, after observing for a long time, she still did not recognize what kind of needling method Qin Haodong was using.
Five minutes later, Qin Haodong had dredged all the blocked blood vessels of the middle-aged man. He took back the silver needle and slapped the man on the chest again. “Okay, get up!”
As if he had been poked at his switch, the middle-aged man immediately opened his eyes and jumped up from the ground.
“Darling, are you alright?” the middle-aged woman asked as she took his hand.
The middle-aged man waved two fists and shouted excitedly, “Dear, I feel so good! Now, I can kill a cow!”
The man, who had recovered from his heart disease, felt amazing after taking a Physique-Improving Pill.
The middle-aged woman said, “Dear, you must thank Dr. Qin for saving your life!”
The middle-aged man turned around and told Qin Haodong with gratitude, “Thank you, little brother!”
“You’re welcome,” Qin Haodong said, “Brother, your heart disease has been completely cured. You don’t have to go to the capital for heart bypass surgery. If you don’t believe me, you can go to the hospital first to have a color Doppler ultrasound test.”
The middle-aged man said, “I believe in you, brother! I can feel that I am in excellent health now.”
Upon seeing that Qin Haodong had really been cured of his heart disease in a few minutes, Mieko opened her mouth in surprise. This exceeded her knowledge of medicine. She couldn’t do anything like that.
“Qin-kun, can you tell me how you did it? What kind of acupuncture method did you just use and what kind of medicine did you give this gentleman?”
Qin Haodong said, “That pill is called Physique-Improving Pill. It has a limited direct effect when it comes to treating heart disease, but it can strengthen a person’s body. The needle method I just used is traditional Celestial Empire medicine that can repair damaged tissue.”
“Does that mean that you replaced heart bypass surgery with acupuncture?” Mieko asked excitedly.
“You could say that!”
“Oh, my God, this is amazing. Can you teach me?”
Qin Haodong said, “Do you really want to learn?”
“Yes, I really want to!” Mieko nodded desperately.
Qin Haodong said playfully, “Even if you want to learn, I will not teach you!”
Mieko said eagerly, “Why? Is it because I am from Nihon? Don’t you know that medicine has no borders?”
