Chapter 323 Coming Back to Life
Qin Haodong stepped forward to the dead man and put his hand on his body to feel for a pulse. As he had expected, the man was only in a state of suspended animation. He was not really dead.
Gao Fengwen also followed. First, he opened the eyes of the dead man and looked at the pupils. Then, he put his hand on his chest to feel the man’s heartbeat. There was no breath. He felt the pulse again and found no reaction at all.
He looked up at Qin Haodong and whispered, “President, this man is really dead.”
Deep down, he also thought that Qin Haodong was a bit reckless and he should not have easily agreed with that woman. 10 million yuan was not a small amount.
The female doctor smiled and looked at Qin Haodong. “Well. Don’t you believe my diagnosis? You insisted that you needed to look at the body yourself. Now, can you see something?”
Upon hearing Gao Fengwen say that the man was dead, the yellow-haired woman’s eyes showed her imperceptible pride. Then, she shouted at Qin Haodong, “What else do you want to say? Compensate me quickly!”
Qin Haodong smiled and said calmly, “You are all wrong. This man is not dead!”
The yellow-haired woman cried, “What’s wrong with you? He is dead, but you want to deny it!”
Qin Haodong said, “Don’t rush. If I don’t make him stand up in ten minutes, I will transfer 10 million yuan to your account immediately.”
The female doctor looked at Qin Haodong with an even more disdainful expression. If Gao Fengwen had not been present, she would have thought that Qin Haodong was making a fool of her. It was clear that this man was dead. How could he stand up? Does he really think that he can make the dead come back to life?
Noticing Qin Haodong’s confident appearance, Gao Fengwen said doubtfully, “President, what’s the matter? How come I can’t see anything special?”
Qin Haodong said, “Have you heard of the immortal herb?”
As soon as he said that, Shen Xiangfu, Zhong Sihai and several old experienced Chinese practitioners changed expressions. Although they hadn’t seen the immortal herb, they had read about it in ancient books.
It was said that one could be in a state of suspended animation within three days after eating the immortal herb. The user would look like a dead man, but he would return to normal after three days.
Gao Fengwen asked, “President, do you mean that this man took the immortal herb?”
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “It’s not the immortal herb, but a medicine similar to that.”
Upon hearing Qin Haodong’s words, the yellow-haired woman’s expression changed slightly, but she still held up the cell phone and cried, “Everyone, two minutes have already passed. There are eight minutes left.”
Gao Fengwen said nervously, “President, time is ticking. Is it too late?”
Qin Haodong looked indifferent as he said, “It is quite enough.”
Then, he took the needle bag out of his pocket and pierced more than 20 silver needles into the man’s chest in the blink of an eye.
“That was so fast! Who is this young man? His skill seems like a trick…”
“You don’t know him? This is the most famous doctor in Jiangnan City, the Medical Sage, also known as Doctor Qin.”
“What is the young doctor doing? Can he really bring the dead back to life?”
Qin Haodong ignored the comments around him. Five minutes later, he took out all the silver needles. The dead man lay on the ground, his face covered with black Qi. However, he still looked the same.
“Did it fail? There seems to be no reaction…”
“It must be so. Many doctors said that this man is dead. How could he come back to life?”
“It seems that the Medical Sage can’t do it. No one can bring the dead back to life…”
The female doctor said scornfully, “Do you really think that you are a miracle doctor? Can you save the dead?”
The yellow-haired woman began to feel a little nervous at first. Then, she shouted arrogantly, “There is only a minute left, so you are going to take the money…”
Her expression showed no sadness over her family member’s death.
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “Don’t worry, there’s still one last procedure left.”
He raised his hand and clapped it against the middle-aged man’s chest. They all saw the man sit up violently from the ground. His mouth opened and he breathed out a mouthful of pink liquid.
“My God, this man is really alive. The dead man has come back to life!”
“The Medical Sage is really good. He can bring the dead back to life!”
“I’ve really widened my horizons. The dead can also be saved. This medical skill is too powerful!”
Upon seeing the man sit up from the ground, Gao Fengwen and the others all took a long breath and looked at Qin Haodong in admiration.
If this person had really died, his death would have affected negatively the reputation of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association. At the same time, they would have been in big trouble. Zhou Zhengping might even have been sued.
The female doctor was stunned. She couldn’t speak. She had been a doctor for nearly 20 years, so she hadn’t expected to encounter this kind of magical thing. It was clear that the man had been dead. How could he have come back to life?
The yellow-haired woman stood there with the cell phone, which was timing in her hand, like a statue. She hadn’t expected that Qin Haodong would really bring her man back to life in ten minutes.
Qin Haodong looked at the liquid and frowned slightly in thought.
The only confused person around was the middle-aged man who had just woken up. When he saw the yellow-haired woman in front of him, he immediately called out, “Wife, did you get the money?”
As soon as he said this, the people around him immediately laughed. Even a fool could see that these two people had used a special way to blackmail the doctors.
When he heard the laughter around him, the middle-aged man came back to his senses, looked around for a while and started pretending. “What happened to me just now? Why did I suddenly faint?”
The yellow-haired woman, who was also a good actress, cooperated with the man by saying, “Yes, honey. You just fainted. It’s okay now. Let’s go home as soon as possible.”
When she picked up the middle-aged man and got ready to leave, she was blocked by Qin Haodong and other members of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.
Qin Haodong said in a cold voice, “Do you want to leave so fast?”
The yellow-haired woman said, “Since my man is okay, I won’t ask you for money. Won’t you let us go?”
Zhou Zhengping cried angrily, “You said you wanted money just now, yet you don’t want money anymore. Are you making a fool of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association?”
He was really angry. These two guys had gone there to blackmail them. If Qin Haodong hadn’t seen through them, he might have gone to court.
The people around them shouted, “They are liars! The police should arrest them!”
“People who blackmail others are the most annoying. They should be sent to prison and never get released…”
“She just asked for 10 million yuan, yet now she wants to leave just like that. How can we let them go? We must make them pay for this…”
Qin Haodong looked at them and said, “Tell me, what’s going on?”
“This… This… This was an accident!” the yellow-haired woman said, “My husband had a heart attack earlier. He was sick, but now he is alright. He is alright!”
The middle-aged man also said, “Yeah, I just had a heart attack and I fainted.”
Everyone could see that this was a lie. Qin Haodong was too lazy to talk nonsense, so he directly used his Mind-Bewitching Skill.
“Be honest, what’s going on? Who asked you to do that?”
The yellow-haired woman was a little confused as she said, “A man asked us to come here. He gave us 20,000 yuan and asked us to come here to blackmail you.”
The onlookers were immediately agitated. Unexpectedly, the woman told the truth just like that. Nalan Wuxia was well aware of Qin Haodong’s skill, so she asked a policeman to take out a notebook and record the woman’s words.
Sure enough, someone had been behind the incident. Qin Haodong asked again, “Who was that middle-aged man? Do you have his contact information?”
“We are blackmailers. Two hours ago, that man suddenly found us and gave us a bottle of potion. He said that whoever took the potion would look dead and wake up in 12 hours. He asked us to come here to blackmail you.
He gave us 20,000 yuan as a reward and said the blackmail money would belong to us completely. At the time, we were so obsessed with money that we agreed.”
Qin Haodong said, “Were you not afraid that this might be poison? He might have died completely by drinking it.”
The middle-aged man said, “Of course I was afraid. I just wanted to make some money, but I didn’t want to die.
The man was also afraid that we wouldn’t believe him, so he asked us to feed our dog first. After drinking it, the dog immediately looked dead. Half an hour later, it was alive again. Thus, we believed him and came here to pretend to be dead and get money.”
Qin Haodong asked a few more questions, but they only knew a little about that man, so they couldn’t say anything else. Then, he turned to Nalan Wuxia and said, “I will give them to you. Check again and see if you can find some useful clues.”
Now, he wanted to know who was behind them.
Nalan Wuxia nodded and waved at the policemen behind her. “Arrest them.”
The two policemen handcuffed the blackmailers and took them to the patrol wagon. There was a burst of applause amid the crowd.
“These two bastards asked for 10 million yuan. It’s estimated that they will spend the rest of their lives in prison.”
“Why did they blackmail us? These people are really immoral…”
Now that the matter had been settled, Qin Haodong turned to the doctors of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association and said, “It’s alright. Let’s continue the free clinic!”
After hearing his order, the doctors immediately returned to their posts, but the patients did not disperse. They all cheered around Qin Haodong.
“Long live the Medical Sage! You are so good!”
“Medical Sage! We love you!”
“You are kind-hearted and worthy of being our Medical Sage.”
Wang Dacheng and Che Xiaoxiao were in the crowd. At first, he had a smile on his face, as he enjoyed watching this. Later, when he saw Qin Haodong turn the situation around, his expression suddenly changed.
Now, upon hearing everyone’s cheers, his face became increasingly gloomier. Unexpectedly, not only had he not overthrown Qin Haodong and the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association, but he had also created a reputation for him and the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association!
When he returned to the Hall of Medical Fame, he realized that some patients had also gone to the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association. Only the Chinese medicine practitioners recruited by him were there. Everyone was sitting, but there were no patients in front of them.
“Dacheng, what’s the matter with you? You look really bad,” Che Xiaoxiao said.
“It’s okay. I just feel a little uncomfortable,” Wang Dacheng told Fu Hailong, “This has been a hard day, so let’s go back and get some rest earlier.”
He could only cancel today’s free clinic early now. Otherwise, the Hall of Medical Fame would have been humiliated.
Upon leaving the Health Square, he refused to accompany Che Xiaoxiao by claiming discomfort and returned home.
“Brother, you are back!”
As soon as Wang Dacheng came in, Wang Dazhi greeted him, not noticing Wang Dacheng’s gloomy face. He followed Wang Dacheng and said proudly, “Elder Brother, I’ve done a good job today. Was Qin Haodong completely fooled?”
