Chapter 339 An Ungrateful Son Who Killed His Father
Upon seeing that the situation was under control, Qin Haodong stepped towards the crystal coffin.
“What are you going to do?”
Yang Baozhong opened his arms and blocked Qin Haodong.
“I want to see the dead man and determine how he died. If it’s really because he took the Blood Revival Elixir, I will pay for his life with my life.”
Yang Baozhong called out, “Is that necessary? My father just bought the Blood Revival Elixir from you this morning and he died after consuming it. It must be your fault.”
Qin Haodong said in a cold voice, “Since you are so sure, why can’t you let me see?”
“He has been laid to rest. You can’t see.”
“Do you really want him to be laid to rest? If so, why don’t you bring the body here?” Qin Haodong said, “Since you are so sure that my Blood Revival Elixir killed your father, why can’t you let me see his body? Is there any shady business going on?”
“Yes, is there any shady business…”
“He dares not even let Doctor Qin see the body. It’s another blackmailer…”
“He has a guilty conscience, just like a thief. I think this guy is afraid to show the body to Doctor Qin…”
Upon hearing this, Ma Sanbao and the others shouted as well.
Suddenly, Yang Baolian, who had never spoken, said, “Brother, let him have a look so that they won’t deny this…”
“I…” Realizing that there was no way to stop it, Yang Baozhong said helplessly, “Well, you can take a look quickly.”
Qin Haodong came to the crystal coffin, raised his hand and clapped it gently, opening the lid and exposing Yang Sanqiang’s body to the air.
He first put his hand on Yang Sanqiang’s wrist. Then, Yang Baozhong said, “Don’t be deliberately mystifying. He is dead! What are you doing?”
Qin Haodong ignored him, opened Yang Sanqiang’s eyelids again, and looked at him. He reached out and pressed Yang Sanqiang’s neck and heart. Then, he frowned. Suddenly, he reached out and took off Yang Sanqiang’s coat.
Yang Baozhong, who seemed to be startled by his action, cried out, “What are you doing? My father is dead. Why are you taking off his clothes?”
Qin Haodong threw the torn clothes aside, pointed to Yang Sanqiang, and asked, “What’s up with the scars on the corpse?”
As he said this, everyone saw several scratches on Yang Sanqiang’s chest and some bruises on his arms.
Yang Baozhong licked his lips and said nervously, “How would I know? My father may have fallen down. He became very weak after getting ill. It was normal for him to fall down…”
Qin Haodong looked at him coldly and said, “Didn’t you say that you don’t know? How can you say that your father fell down? Do you know or not?”
Yang Baozhong hesitated and said, “I… I guess that he has fallen down…”
Qin Haodong asked Yang Baolian, “Do you know what happened?”
Yang Baolian said in surprise, “I don’t know. It’s hot these days. My father was often naked, but I didn’t see any scars!”
Qin Haodong’s eyes turned back to Yang Baozhong. He pointed to Yang Sanqiang and said, “You said the dead man had once fallen down, but this was not a fall at all.
If a person falls down normally, the first injuries should be on their forehead, elbow, and jaw. However, these parts of his body are all intact. The injured parts are his chest and arm, which obviously get injured when one is fighting with others.”
Yang Baozhong said, “What… What are you talking about? How could my father have fought with someone?”
Yang Baolian also said, “Yes, that’s impossible. My father had a good temper, so he never fought with others. Besides, he was a patient. How could he have fought with someone?”
“The fact that he had a good temper doesn’t mean he wouldn’t resist if other people poisoned him.” Qin Haodong turned to look at Yang Baozhong and said angrily, “Your father didn’t die by taking the Blood Revival Elixir. He was poisoned by you, his ungrateful son.”
As soon as he said this, there was an uproar.
“Can that be? This man is the natural son of the deceased. Would he really poison his father?”
“The Blood Revival Elixir has cured so many of us, and nobody has experienced a problem. How could he die after taking it? He was poisoned by his own son!”
“This man is worse than an animal. He poisoned his father!”
Yang Baozhong’s face was full of consternation as he shouted, “Nonsense, you quack doctor! In order to shirk responsibility, you are slandering me. How could I poison my father…?”
Yang Baolian also said, “Doctor Qin, I’ve heard of your name. I used to admire you very much, but you can’t say that my brother killed my father in order to shirk responsibility.”
Qin Haodong took a look at her and said, “If my guess is right, you were not around when your father died.”
Yang Baolian, who was slightly shocked, said, “Well, my father checked that everything was normal after taking the Blood Revival Elixir. When he came home, he wanted to eat deep-fried dough sticks and drink soya-bean milk. I went out to buy them for him, but when I came home, I found him dead.”
Qin Haodong said, “That’s right. Your brother poisoned your father as soon as you left. Originally, your brother had put the poison in the water and tried to trick your father into drinking it. However, your father wanted to drink soya-bean milk instead of water.
Your brother was afraid that his plan would be exposed when you came back, so he had to force your father to drink. That’s how he left these fighting scars.”
“You… You…” Yang Baozhong looked at Qin Haodong in horror. He couldn’t believe that Qin Haodong’s theory was completely right.
Yang Baolian turned to look at Yang Baozhong and asked in a surprised voice, “Brother, you couldn’t really have poisoned father, could you?”
Yang Baozhong came back to his senses and cried, “Sister, don’t listen to this bastard’s nonsense. He just wants to shirk his responsibility so he’s slandering me. How could I poison my father?”
Yang Baolian looked at Qin Haodong and said, “Although my father was injured, what you said seems to be a coincidence. I can’t believe your words. It was not easy for my father to raise me and my brother. My brother would not poison him in any way.”
Suddenly, some people in the crowd started questioning this theory.
“I don’t think it’s possible either. It’s a little risky…”
“I guess he’s just trying to shirk his responsibility. How could a son kill his father?”
Ma Sanbao and the others immediately refuted this. “You are talking nonsense. Doctor Qin always speaks honestly. What he said must be true.”
Qin Haodong ignored the arguments around him, glanced at Yang Baozhong coldly, and then told Yang Baolian, “You don’t believe what I said, but you will believe what your father said.”
“My father is dead. How could he speak?”
Yang Baolian said in amazement.
Yang Baozhong cried out, “You see? He is a lunatic! My father has been killed by him. He even said we should let my father speak.”
Qin Haodong sneered, “You know nothing about traditional Chinese medicine. I’ll tell you a little about the medical theory. Leukemia is a manifestation of blood poisoning. The mechanism of the Blood Revival Elixir treats leukemia by eliminating the blood poison. From another perspective, the Blood Revival Elixir has a detoxifying function.”
After listening to Qin Haodong’s words, Yang Baolian seemed to think about it. Meanwhile, Yang Baozhong cried, “What are you trying to do by saying this? I only know that your medicine killed my father. I don’t want to know about its mechanism.”
“I just want to tell you one thing,” said Qin Haodong, “The Blood Revival Elixir has a certain detoxifying function. That’s why the poison you fed your father didn’t poison him. It only made him enter a state of suspended animation by coincidence.”
Yang Baozhong, who panicked at first, then yelled at the top of his voice, “It’s impossible! It’s impossible! You’re trying to deceive me!”
“I don’t need to deceive you, and you don’t need to deny it. I’ll save your father now and we’ll see what he has to say!”
Then, Qin Haodong took out the silver needles and got ready to save Yang Sanqiang.
Yang Baozhong immediately stopped him by crying out, “No, my father is dead! You can’t hurt him anymore!”
Upon seeing his panicked performance, Ma Sanbao and the others immediately shouted, “He is afraid of being discovered! This guy must have poisoned his father.”
“That’s right. He must have done it. You see, he is already panicked…”
“It’s not natural to poison one’s own father…”
Yang Baolian looked at Yang Baozhong coldly and said, “Brother, you are not really guilty, are you?”
Yang Baozhong said stiffly, “How could I be? Sister, what are you saying? How could I be guilty? I don’t want this guy to hurt my father anymore.”
“Let Doctor Qin have a try, in case he can save our father!”
Yang Baolian then pushed away Yang Baozhong and told Qin Haodong, “Doctor Qin, if you save my father, I will do anything in return.”
Qin Haodong nodded and stepped over to Yang Sanqiang’s body, holding the needles in his hand. In the blink of an eye, more than 20 gold needles were stabbed into Yang Sanqiang’s chest.
Although he knew that Yang Sanqiang had been poisoned by a kind of genetic toxin, it was much more toxic than the blackmailer’s toxin last time. This time, Yang Baozhong had really wanted to kill Yang Sanqiang.
Fortunately, the Blood Revival Elixir had counteracted against part of the toxicity and helped Yang Sanqiang survive. However, if this state was not relieved as soon as possible, he would die sooner or later. Fortunately, he had met Qin Haodong.
Five minutes later, Qin Haodong took out the gold needles and clapped on Yang Sanqiang’s abdomen.
Yang Sanqiang opened his mouth and spat out a mouthful of black water. Then, he really opened his eyes slowly.
“Dad, are you really okay?”
Yang Baolian wept with joy and rushed over to help Yang Sanqiang stand up.
“He is alive. The dead man has really come back to life…”
“Amazing! It’s really amazing! Doctor Qin can really bring the dead back to life…”
“Of course, he is the Medical Sage. Even the dead can be saved!”
The onlookers were excited for a while. However, Yang Baozhong’s face was pale and his body began to tremble. He turned and got ready to run but he was kicked back by Sword, who had been waiting for him nearby. Yang Baozhong fell down in front of Yang Sanqiang.
When Yang Sanqiang saw Yang Baozhong, he immediately pointed to his nose and swore. “You beast, I raised you for so many years, yet you poisoned me. Are you not afraid of the wrath of heaven?”
As soon as Yang Sanqiang said this, Qin Haodong’s conjecture was confirmed. It turned out that Yang Sanqiang had not been poisoned by the Blood Revival Elixir, but by his own son’s toxin. Fortunately, he had met Qin Haodong. Otherwise, the old man would have died.
“I… I…” Yang Baozhong wanted to explain but he couldn’t utter a complete sentence. He was nervous and scared. His whole body was shaking.
“You bastard!” Yang Baolian slapped Yang Baozhong’s face, pointed to his nose, and said angrily, “How could you do this kind of thing? Did you forget that Dad raised us?”
