Chapter 591 The Farmer and the Snake
“Am I really cured?”
Although the pain in his right leg had completely disappeared, the worker still couldn’t believe it. As the saying goes, it takes 100 days to recover when you have sinew or bone injuries. How could he recover this quickly?
“You’ll know once you try,” Qin Haodong said as he stretched out his hand and gently pushed the worker. The construction worker stood up from the stretcher. Although he only stood on the ground with his right foot, it was stable, as if it had not been injured at all.
He tried to put his left leg on the ground, but he felt a sudden sharp pain. There was a completely different feeling between his left and right legs.
Qin Haodong asked him to sit in a chair next to him and said, “Bear with it for a while, I’ll reset this leg for you.”
After that, he grabbed the worker’s left leg, which had just been reset by Li Mintae, and pulled it back. The construction worker felt a sharp pain, but before he could scream, Qin Haodong reconnected his broken left leg again.
“All right, you can try again this time.”
After Qin Haodong said that, he allowed the construction worker to stand up again.
The worker tried to walk a few steps on the ground and found that his legs had recovered. He cried excitedly, “I’m okay. They really recovered!
“You really are an amazing doctor. Thank you, thank you so much!”
Qin Haodong said, “Well, you can go home. Remember to rest for a week before going back to work.”
After the construction worker left, Li Mintae sighed and said, “I used to think that my bone-setting skills were first-class, but it’s just child’s play compared with Mr. Medical Sage. I really admire you.”
Alice also said, “Amazing! It’s amazing! I’ve never seen such a magical medical skill. Chinese medicine is really amazing.”
It was almost noon, and Hou Wenbin no longer asked the clinic to send patients over. The medical exchange meeting came to an end.
After Alice, Li Mintae and the others left, both Su Hongbo and Zhang Helun bowed to Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong said in surprise, “What are you doing?”
Su Hongbo said, “Haodong, we thank you on behalf of all the Chinese medicine practitioners. It is a monumental contribution to have recovered the bronze statue and the Compendium of Materia Medica, which had been lost for many years. They’re finally back in Huaxia.”
Zhang Helun said, “At the same time, thank you for making Chinese medicine shine again and become famous all over the world.”
The two old men knew very well that if Qin Haodong hadn’t shown his strength that day, the challenge issued by Li Mintae and the others wouldn’t have gone well at all. Even the Acupuncture Bronze Statue competition would have made them lose face.
After they finished speaking, the audience shouted together, “The Medical Sage is mighty! The Medical Sage is mighty!”
Even though the exchange meeting had ended, the aftereffects didn’t stop.
Because of Qin Haodong’s outstanding performance, the whole Chinese medicine circle was proud, which raised people’s interest for Chinese medicine in Huaxia.
Li Mintae immediately withdrew his comments about Chinese medicine practitioners and apologized publicly at the same time when he returned to his country.
Qin Haodong became famous. All the Medical College students knew that he was the Medical Sage from Jiangnan City. For a time, he became an idol of tens of thousands of students and the dream lover of countless girls.
As promised, Kim Siyuan had already been waiting in front of the door when Qin Haodong returned home in the evening.
Li Mintae and the others had returned to Koryo, leaving her alone in Huaxia for the treatment.
When she saw Qin Haodong, she immediately stepped forward and asked worriedly, “Doctor Qin, can you really cure me?”
“Don’t worry. You will be cured,” Qin Haodong said as he let her enter the room.
After Kim Siyuan sat down, Qin Haodong looked at her and said, “If I’m right, there should be another soul inside your body which has a deep grudge against you. The soul wants to take over your body. Can you tell me the specific reason?”
“That’s right! That’s right! Doctor Qin, you’re right,” Kim Siyuan said excitedly, “My mother was carrying twins when she gave birth to me. However, we were Siamese twins, and our development was not good, sharing only one heart.
“The doctor said that only one of us could survive. In the end, my mother chose to let me stay. So my sister died after the operation.
“Because of this, she had a lot of resentment in her heart. She didn’t reincarnate after she passed; she stayed in my body. She always tries to control my body on the 14th of every month, the day of the operation.
“So, I go crazy every time the 14th arrives. I feel the urge to destroy everything in front of me and even destroy my own body.
“My parents didn’t know the reason, so they took me to see a lot of doctors, but it didn’t work. Later, they slowly found the pattern. They tied me up on the 14th day of every month. They would release me when I got back to normal.
“When I grew older, I was sensible enough to tell them about my body’s condition, but my parents could do nothing about it. In that case, they had to make a choice.
“Later, they found many monks and Taoist priests. They wanted to release the soul in my body, but none of them succeeded. Later, we also saw a lot of Chinese medicine doctors, but it didn’t work either.”
Kim Siyuan continued with a pained expression, “With the passage of time, the soul in my body has become stronger and stronger. In the beginning, it would only take over my body for two hours, but now the time is getting longer and longer. It’s almost a day now.
“I think she will occupy my body and turn me into a real lunatic sooner or later if it goes on like this.
“Doctor Qin, please save me. I’m in too much pain now!”
“That’s her destiny. She can’t blame anyone else,” Qin Haodong said, “Don’t worry, I’m going to remove her from your body now.”
Kim Siyuan said, “Doctor Qin, she is in fact a wretched person. If possible, please send her to reincarnate. Don’t hurt her, okay?”
Qin Haodong said, “She has been unwilling to leave for so many years. It shows that she has a lot of resentment in her heart. I’ll talk to her about the details later.”
Kim Siyuan nodded and said, “Thank you, Doctor Qin.”
Qin Haodong asked her to sit cross-legged on the bed; then he took out the silver needles and pierced them into the big acupoints on her head one by one.
When the seventh needle was pierced, a wisp of black Qi suddenly rose from the top of Kim Siyuan’s head, finally turning into the appearance of a little girl. It could be seen that her appearance was very similar to Kim Siyuan’s, but her expression was very fierce.
The little girl looked around and seemed very curious about the situation. Finally, she saw Qin Haodong next to her and said, “Who are you? What are you going to do?”
Qin Haodong said, “Everyone has his own way. You’ve been dead for so many years, why don’t you let go of your obsession? If you had reincarnated, you would be about 20 years old by now.”
Hearing what he said, the little girl immediately shouted with an irritable look, “Why should I die? Why were they so partial? Both of us were their daughters. If I had been chosen, I would have survived. Why did they choose this woman?”
Qin Haodong said, “If you were chosen, she would have died. Life and death are determined. You were sisters. Why are you so persistent?”
“I don’t care. Don’t poke your nose into other people’s business. Since I can’t live, I’ll kill her!”
After the little girl finished speaking, she turned back and threw herself at Kim Siyuan. She was about to return to her body.
“You are stubborn.”
Qin Haodong flicked his finger and a silver needle was inserted into Kim Siyuan’s brain. The little girl tried several times and was surprised to find that she couldn’t go back.
“How dare you ruin my plans? I’ll kill you!”
Then, she rushed towards Qin Haodong with threatening gestures, as if she wanted to snatch his body away.
Qin Haodong waved his hand and the Yin-Yang mirror flew out. A golden light stopped the little girl in mid-air.
The little girl struggled desperately, but found that she couldn’t get rid of the light column. Only then did she know that she had met a master. She screamed in horror, “Master, please spare my life! Please spare my life!”
Qin Haodong said, “I’ll give you two choices. First, put aside your obsession and reincarnate. Second, you’ll lose your soul.”
“I choose the first one.”
Under the heavy pressure, the little girl immediately gave up the hatred in her heart.
“I wish you a good new life. Go ahead!”
Qin Haodong made an incantation. The little girl was absorbed into the Yin-Yang mirror; she entered the cycle of reincarnation!
After that, Qin Haodong took out the silver needles on Kim Siyuan’s head. She slowly opened her eyes and felt unprecedentedly relaxed.
“Doctor Qin, was the problem solved?”
Qin Haodong nodded.
“How is she?” Kim Siyuan asked with a troubled expression. She had an indescribable feeling for the resentful soul in her body. She felt both hurt and guilty.
Qin Haodong said, “She has reincarnated.”
“Thank you, Doctor Qin!” Kim Siyuan breathed a sigh of relief. She took out a check of one million yuan from her pocket, and respectfully handed it to Qin Haodong. “This is the treatment fee. Thank you. Without you, I really don’t know how long I would have held on.”
Qin Haodong took the check and put it aside.
Kim Siyuan said, “Doctor Qin, I’ve seen the greatness and profoundness of Chinese medicine in you. Can I take you me as your student?”
Qin Haodong said, “How much do you know about the Huaxia culture?”
Kim Siyuan said, “Since I’m studying medicine, I know a lot about the Huaxia culture. If you’re willing to accept me as your apprentice, I won’t let you down.”
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “That’s not what I meant. I just want to ask you, have you heard any famous Huaxia stories?”
Kim Siyuan asked curiously, “I know a lot. Which one are you talking about?”
Qin Haodong said, “The farmer and the snake.”
With a face full of shame, Kim Siyuan lowered her head and said, “I’m sorry, Doctor Qin. I apologize again for my previous behavior.”
Qin Haodong said, “It’s just a doctor’s duty to treat you. Our fate ends here. You can go now.”
Of course, he would not let go of the past because of an apology. They apologized to him because of his medical skills. Their minds would change if one day their medical skills were better.
Kim Siyuan also knew Qin Haodong would not accept her. She bowed respectfully and then left.
