Chapter 270 One Man Defeats a Country
As she faced this criticism, Miekoi’s cheeks flushed. Although she was embarrassed to the extreme, she quickly regained her composure because she had to win.
Looking around, she said, “Mr. Gao, please answer a question for me.”
“Go ahead, I wonder what you will say.”
Gao Fengwen spoke indignantly.
“Chinese traditional medicine has a long history. According to a saying, medicine, martial arts and metaphysics are closely related. A doctor of Chinese medicine must practice martial arts. Am I right or wrong?”
When Mieko finished speaking, the venue went silent. Everyone’s eyes gathered on Gao Fengwen. Chinese doctors also had to practice martial arts. This was the first time they heard this saying.
Although Gao Fengwen was full of indignation, he was left speechless by this question. Mieko was right. In traditional Chinese medicine, doctors had to practice martial arts. They had to at least possess some cultivation of Internal Qi, not to fight but to save people.
Huangdi and Sunv were both ancestors of traditional Chinese medicine. It was well-known that both of them were rare masters.
However, today’s China was not what it used to be. After thousands of years, even martial arts had declined. There were fewer and fewer warriors, let alone doctors who practiced martial arts. Chinese medicine doctors who still adhered to cultivation were very rare. There were maybe fewer than five in existence.
Still, the question raised by Mieko was right. Gao Fengwen could only nod his head stiffly as he said, “Miss Mieko is right. There is indeed such a saying.”
A sneer appeared at the corner of Mieko’s mouth as she said lightly, “In that case, we are at the ancient Chinese cultural exchange meeting. What’s wrong with me testing the martial arts of traditional Chinese medicine?”
“Er…” Gao Fengwen felt dumb for a while. Although Mieko was using sophistry, she was not unreasonable. He could not refute for a while.
“Since Senior Gao is not objecting, that means he agrees. Now, you have two choices. You can either send someone to battle or throw in the towel on the spot. As I said, what we are testing is the martial arts of traditional Chinese medicine, so the competitor must be a traditional Chinese medicine doctor.”
Mieko turned to Qin Haodong. “Am I right, Medical Sage?”
Her last sentence blocked the way for Chinese warriors who wanted to fight on the stage. Even if one knew martial arts well, one couldn’t battle unless they were a Chinese doctor.
They were just afraid of another warrior like Qi Waner coming out. After all, China was so large that anyone could be a hidden master.
Gao Fengwen was dumbfounded. He had oginally wanted to compete with Nihon people by using his own medical skills to win glory for Chinese medicine. Who knew that Mieko would find another way to dampen his ambition?
In this case, he could only turn to Qin Haodong. The young man who had been creating miracles was also a warrior, yet he did not know whether he was the right opponent for Mieko.
Qin Haodong sighed. It seemed that he couldn’t keep a low profile. The Nihon women were clearly aiming at him.
He took two steps forward and said calmly, “Since Miss Chiba insisted on challenging us to Chinese martial arts, I’ll play with her. However, the sword has no eyes, so don’t cry when you get hurt.”
Mieko slowly held up the Nihon knife in her hand and made a Nihong start-up gesture. Then, she said with a serious expression, “This knife is called Thousand Blades. Let’s have a martial arts exchange!”
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “I’m afraid it’s not just a simple exchange. Is it because I’m too capable? Is that why you are jealous and want to kill me?”
Mieko was shocked. Qin Haodong’s guess was right. In order to ensure the long-term development of Nihon, the young man in front of her had to be removed.
“Qin-kun, we are just conducting a cultural exchange. Please start!”
The audience was boiling. They had only expected cultural content, yet the two sides would now even compete in martial arts. They could enjoy this to their heart’s content.
“Doctor Qin, beat this woman hard…”
“Dr. Qin, show her what Chinese martial arts are… ”
“The Medical Sage is invincible. Long live the Medical Sage!”
Although the audience was composed of ordinary people, in their opinion, Chinese martial arts had always been invincible in the world. Naturally, they would not be afraid of a Nihon woman.
Qin Haodong stood on the stage, his hands behind his back, and said, “You are a guest. You can make three moves first.”
This Nihon woman’s cultivation had reached the third grade of Covert Power. Although she had been trying to hide it, he could still see it by taking one glance with his Spirit.
Mieko stared at Qin Haodong with a burning eye but could not see the depth of his cultivation. Qin Haodong had been practicing immortal cultivation, so his appearance seemed no different from ordinary people’s.
Suddenly, the Thousand Blades in her hand flashed and turned into a streamer before striking at Qin Haodong’s head.
The attack was quick, fierce, and full of murderous feeling. Without any sense of cultural exchange, she seemed to want to cut off his head.
Qin Haodong’s eyes glistened with coldness while his body leaned to the side, narrowly escaping the Thousand Blades.
Mieko’s wrist flipped and the Thousand Blades stroked towards Qin Haodong again. In a moment, he turned into a shadow and appeared behind her.
Mieko suddenly retrieved the knife and waved it in a powerful swing. She used a Nihon sword art that was both exquisite and precise. Right now, she was a female killer that did not look as weak as a Nihon woman.
Qin Haodong’s figure disappeared again. Suddenly, he appeared on Mieko’s left side. Three moves had passed by the time he hit Mieko on the shoulder with a punch.
His cultivation had reached the fifth grade of Covert Power. Thus, in combinaton with the rich combat experience of his previous life and the sophisticated martial arts of the Cultivation World, he could kill the Nihon woman in seconds.
Nevertheless, he never liked to completely expose his trump card. Therefore, he hid his strength and only showed the capability of the third grade of Covert Power.
Even so, Mieko and Hirai, who watched the battle under the stage, were surprised. They had originally thought that Qin Haodong was at most at the sixth grade of Overt Power. They hadn’t expected him to be Mieko’s equal.
They were at a standstill on the stage. They seemed to be on the same level because Qin Haodong did not want to show too much strength. Thus, the battle lasted more than a hundred rounds.
Mieko was a little anxious. This was Japan’s last battle. If she lost, there would be no chance to save her dignity.
She held the knife in both hands and cried, “Qin-kun, although you are excellent, it’s no disgrace to be killed by the Thousand Blades.”
“Don’t cry when you get hurt!”
Qin Haodong smiled. Even though he knew that the woman was going to try to kill him, it would be no challenge for him.
“Go! Thousand Blades!”
Mieko’s eyes flashed with a fierce ray as her Thousand Blades instantaneously turned into millions of lights that stabbed Qin Haodong. She seemed to be using eight hundred swords to surround Qin Haodong. People could not tell which light was the real Thousand Blades.
Hirai stood up suddenly, her eyes full of excitement. Miss Chiba had successfully learned the art of Thousand Blades. She deserved to be called a Japanese genius.
On the Chinese side, the audience stood up and looked nervously at the stage. They couldn’t imagine how the young man could avoid this attack.
The light of the knife, which was like electricity, soon disappeared. When the audience looked at the stage again, the Thousand Blades had been inserted in Qin Haodong’s ribs.
People began shouting, thinking that Qin Haodong had suffered a misfortune. However, he smiled and clapped on Mieko’s belly.
Mieko’s face was full of horror. She could not imagine how Qin Haodong had found the Thousand Blades in the dagger light and captured it under his ribs.
However, her Thousand Blades were so tightly clipped by him that she could not move even half an inch. Just as she’d wondered hesitantly whether she should abandon the knife, Qin Haodong’s palm had clapped on her stomach. She immediately flew out and fell to the ground.
Mieko struggled to sit up from the ground, spitting out a mouthful of blood. Eventually, she was defeated. What kind of monster was this man? By using his strength, he had crushed the perfect plan of a whole country.
Suddenly, she went crazy and cried at Qin Haodong, “What did you do to me? Where’s my Genuine Qi and my cultivation?”
She was a warrior of the third grade of Covert Power, so her Dantian was as silent as an ordinary person’s and there was no sign of Genuine Qi. No matter how hard she tried, there was still no reaction whatsoever.
“He disabled my cultivation.”
The idea suddenly appeared in her mind. Mieko’s mood could no longer be controlled. She burst into tears. As a Nihon genius, she had grown accustomed to the admiration and worship of others and could not accept the fact that she had become an ordinary person.
“I told you not to cry when you got hurt. Why didn’t you listen?” Qin Haodong said playfully, “In fact, being disabled is not a bad thing. You can become a good doctor and marry a good man. Women should not fight and kill.”
He was not a Bodhisattva. He would not show mercy to those who wanted to kill him. Just disabling her was kind enough of him. If they had not been in public, he would have killed the woman directly.
“This is a good knife. You won’t be able to use it in the future, so I will take it as a trophy.”
Qin Haodong stepped forward, took the scabbard from Mieko’s waist, inserted the Thousand Blades, and said with a smile, “Well, do you want to continue to fight?”
“I will kill you!”
Mieko shouted and rushed towards Qin Haodong. However, despite her hatred, she had turned from a warrior to an ordinary person. Without the Genuine Qi to support her, she no longer had her earlier amazing speed. Plus, her body was seriously injured. As a result, she fell to the ground with a flop when she took a few steps.
Now, she was sad again. As she was sitting on the ground and crying loudly, she looked like an ordinary girl who had been wronged. She did not have the superior look she’d had before.
Qin Haodong looked at the poor Mieko with a cold smile. There was no pity in his heart now. If he had lost instead, he would have been dead by now.
He turned to the Nihon side and cried, “What’s up? Are there any doctors on your side who want to challenge me again?
Although there were many martial artists in Nihon, only Mieko was a doctor proficient in martial arts. Hirai’s face was as gray as ash while he ordered his men to bring Mieko down.
Although he was extremely unwilling, he had to face reality. Thus, he cried bitterly, “We give up!”
Qian Duoduo, who was holding the microphone, declared, “The Chinese delegation won five battles at this cultural exchange and thus won the competition!”
The scene was full of happiness, as every Chinese person expressed their inner joy.
Hirai gave Qin Haodong a vicious look and left the venue with his men in disgrace.
