Chapter 516 A Strange Seal
Qin Haodong said to the old lady, “Grandma, you misunderstood. Su Hui and I are just ordinary classmates.”
Zhu Chunmei smiled and said, “It doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. My husband and I used to be ordinary classmates as well, but our relationship gradually became unusual and finally we became husband and wife.”
Qin Haodong was speechless. Was the old lady trying to recognize him as her grandson-in-law, or was she trying to avoid paying the consultation fee?
As soon as he thought of this, Su Hongbo said half-jokingly, “Little Qin, I think this suggestion is good. Liu used his money to buy antiques these years. His family is very poor and he doesn’t have money to pay you the treatment fee. How about receiving his granddaughter as the treatment fee?”
“Grandpa, what are you talking about? I’m not a coin. How can you do that?”
Su Hui took a shy look at Qin Haodong. It was the first time for her to show such a shy look.
Since she knew that Qin Haodong was the Medical Sage, her attitude for Qin Haodong had a subtle change in her heart.
As the heir of a Chinese medicine practitioner family, Su Hui had always regarded the Medical Sage as an idol, admiring his medical skills and medical ethics.
In particular, the appearance of the Blood Revival Elixir not only made amazing breakthroughs in medical skills, but also completely cured leukemia patients in Huaxia. Moreover, it was not for profit, which made her crazier for the Medical Sage.
She didn’t recognize Qin Haodong as the Medical Sage before, because when Qin Haodong saw others, he would use the illusion skill on his face. By doing this, it was difficult for ordinary people to recognize him.
In addition, she had the same thought as Su Hongbo’s. She felt that it was impossible for the Medical Sage to go to Shanghai Medical College to study, so she didn’t think about it before. She only thought that this was a student with incredible medical skills. She was simple-minded and only wanted to improve her medical skills when they were together.
But things were different at the moment. She felt very strange after knowing Qin Haodong’s identity. Every time she saw his handsome face, she couldn’t stop her heart from beating faster.
Qin Haodong didn’t know about Su Hui’s complex feelings. He said, “You must be joking. I’m Su Hui’s classmate. I’m just helping you. I don’t need to charge you any fees.”
Hearing Qin Haodong’s refusal, Su Hui suddenly felt a sense of loss.
Liu Qigong said, “Little Qin, I’m not a doctor, but I also know that it’s natural to pay for a doctor’s treatment. Just now, Su said that my family really doesn’t have much money. If I don’t pay enough money, I’ll be sorry for not appreciating the kindness of saving my life.
“Well, I’ll show you the antiques I’ve collected in the past few years, and you can take whatever you like. I will pay you with that.”
Qin Haodong said, “Mr. Liu, a gentleman doesn’t take another person’s treasure. How can I take away your precious antiques? Forget it.”
Zhu Chunmei said, “Little Qin, don’t say that. Those things can’t be eaten or drunk. It’s useless to put them there. If you like those things, you can take all of them away.”
Liu Qigong smiled and said, “If you want to refuse me, then you can only take Su Hui away with you.”
Qin Haodong stopped insisting. He thought to himself that he could just take one of them later.
Su Hongbo said, “I think we are almost done. Let’s go to Liu’s treasure room to have a look. This guy has been searching for many good things over the years.”
“OK, let’s go and have a look.”
When it came to his own treasure room, Liu Qigong was excited. As an expert of the School of Archaeology in Shanghai University, he had no hobbies these years, so he spent all his savings on buying antiques.Read latest chapters at L istnovel.com
After that, he stood up and led Qin Haodong and the others to the basement, which was his specially-designed treasure room.
After opening the heavy security door, there was a room of about forty or fifty square meters inside. The decoration and the design were simple and chic. There were storage shelves which were set one after another, with antiques on them.
Qin Haodong stepped in, and a burst of rich Spiritual Qi came to his face.
He glanced around and found that it was worthy of being the collection room of an antique expert. More than 80% of the collection items were genuine antiques.
“Little Qin, I don’t know if you’re interested in antiques or not. Have a look.”
After entering the treasure room, Liu Qigong seemed to have reached his own field and suddenly became several decades younger. Pointing to the antiques on the storage shelves, he continued to introduce, “This is a porcelain made in the Song Dynasty. Look at this pattern. It was produced by the official kiln. This is an ancient sword of the Qing Dynasty with a history of about 200 years. This is a Zhang Daqian’s work. It’s definitely authentic…”
Liu Qigong’s collection was rich in cultural connotations, and some were worth a lot. If they were auctioned, they would definitely cause a great sensation.
If those things were seen by treasure fans, they would inevitably go crazy, but they couldn’t arouse Qin Haodong’s interest. He was just slowly appreciating them with the introductions made by Liu Qigong, and his expression was always calm.
Su Hui had been secretly watching Qin Haodong’s changes. Seeing his expression, she thought that he was only good at medicine and did not know how to appreciate antiques. He didn’t know the value of her grandfather’s collection.
However, in her opinion, she couldn’t fault for that. It was extremely rare and precious for a man in his twenties to have such profound medical skills. Who could ask for more?
Sun Hongbo also thought the same. He said, “Old Liu, don’t show off these things. We are Chinese medicine practitioners. How can we understand these things? Just give a good one to Little Qin as you like.”
Liu Qigong said, “What do you know? I’m not stingy. It depends on what Little Qin likes. It wouldn’t be appropriate if he likes ancient paintings and I give him a vase.”
He turned to Qin Haodong and said, “Little Qin, choose one for yourself.”
“In that case, I will choose…”
Qin Haodong was about to point to an antique, but suddenly his expression froze, and his eyes were fixed on the shelf that was in a corner.
There was a small sword that was about ten centimeters long. The workmanship and the material of the sword could not be seen clearly. It was dark without any luster.
He took two steps to the shelf and grabbed the small sword in his hand, feeling the extremely weak fluctuation of spiritual force it had.
If he hadn’t reached the Golden Core Realm, he probably wouldn’t have discovered that there was a very secret seal inside it.
There was a seal on the mirror of Yin-Yang from Fatty Wang’s house, but the seal was very obvious, and it was within Qin Haodong’s capabilities.
However, the seal on the small sword was different. He could only feel that it was a powerful seal through the weak fluctuation of Spiritual Qi, but he didn’t know what kind of seal it was, and he couldn’t see what kind of treasure was under the seal.
However, there was one thing that was certain: the one who made this kind of seal was definitely a very powerful master. The sword he had sealed was definitely special.
He couldn’t help but feel excited by this thought. Since the mirror of Yin-Yang was already a Divine Tool, what kind of treasure would this small sword be?
Seeing that he had picked up the little sword, Liu Qigong stepped forward and said, “I picked it up from the Antique Row, and it cost me a hundred yuan at that time.
“Later, I also studied it for a while. This thing was neither made of copper nor iron, and I never could tell what material it is. I couldn’t see which dynasty made it, so I kept it here.”
Su Hongbo said, “Little Qin, you don’t like this thing, do you? It’s only worth 100 yuan. You don’t have to save money for this old guy. Pick another good one.”
Liu Qigong glared at Su Hongbo, but also said, “Yes, Little Qin, I can’t even see what this thing is. You’d better change it.”
Qin Haodong shook his head. In his eyes, even if he placed all the things in the room together, they wouldn’t be as good as this little sword. This was a priceless treasure in the eyes of a cultivator.
“Mr. Liu, I’ll choose this.”
Su Hongbo shook his head and said, “You are still too softhearted. You don’t have to spare this old guy.”
Liu Qigong also felt that this little sword was not worthy of Qin Haodong’s life-saving grace. He said, “Little Qin, this thing is really worthless. It’s okay if you want to change it.”
Qin Haodong said, “No, Mr. Liu. I’ll take it. It’s a good thing. It is the most valuable thing here.”
Liu Qigong asked in surprise, “Little Qin, do you know what this is?”
Qin Haodong said, “I don’t know what it is, but I know it’s a treasure. This time I took advantage of you.”
“What do you mean by this? Why are you taking advantage of me? It’s me who is taking advantage of you.”
In Liu Qigong’s view, this sensible young man was just being polite to him. He didn’t know that Qin Haodong was serious. In Qin Haodong’s eyes, the little sword was a true treasure.Read latest chapters at L istnovel.com
He thought for a moment and said, “I’ll give you this Jade Guanyin to compensate.”
As he spoke, he took out the jade crystal pendant that he had bought from the Xue Jewelry Company store. There were two formations carved on it. One was to drive out evil spirits and the other was to gather Yang Qi.
Originally, he just casually did it and didn’t plan to give it to anyone. He simply decided to give it to Liu Qigong that day.
“You… You saved my life. I would feel embarrassed if I accepted your gift.”
Liu Qigong was an expert at antiques, so he knew a little about jades. When he saw the jade pendant, he immediately realized that it was definitely not ordinary. He quickly said, “This thing is too expensive. I can’t afford to accept it.”
At this time, Zhu Chunmei took the jade crystal pendant and said, “You old man, you’re really stupid. It is obvious that it’s a gift for Su Hui. He is shy and is embarrassed to say it directly, so he said that he wants to give it to you.”
As she spoke, she placed the pendant on Su Hui’s hand and said, “Take it, my girl!”
Qin Haodong was speechless. The old lady’s imagination was too wild.
Su Hui held the pendant in her hand and fiddled with it. It was crystal clear and exquisitely crafted. Most importantly, it made her feel very comfortable.
Seeing that the misunderstanding was getting deeper and deeper, Qin Haodong quickly said, “This pendant is really for Mr. Liu. This is a treasure given to me by a predecessor. As long as you take it with you, it can block all the evil spirits and Yin Qi within ten meters.
“Not only can it protect you, but it can also protect the team of archaeologist that go with you.”
In the past, Liu Qigong didn’t believe in these theories. But after that life-and-death ordeal, he finally became a believer.
After hearing Qin Haodong’s words, he quickly said, “Did you hear that? This is for me. This thing will be useful for me when I work in the future. I can’t give it to you.”
Su Hui also knew that she misunderstood that, so she gave the pendant back to Liu Qigong with a blushing face.
“You old man, you even fought for a pendant with your granddaughter.”
Liu Qigong glared at Zhu Chunmei, but didn’t say anything.
Liu Qigong wore the pendant and said with some embarrassment, “Little Qin, this thing is worth a lot of money. Why don’t you tell how much it is and I’ll buy it?”
He focused all his energy into archaeology. Since this thing would be useful for his expeditions, he was reluctant to part with it.
Qin Haodong picked up the little sword in his hand and said, “Mr. Liu. You think too much. This is my compensation for you.”
The jade pendant was worth at least 100 million yuan, but it couldn’t compare with that sword.
