“Do you know each other?” asked w.a.n.g Yao.
“Sort of,” said Sun Zhengrong.
He didn't expect to see Chen Ying here, and neither did she expect to see Sun Zhengrong.
“Yunsheng, this is Chen Ying,” said Sun Zhengrong.
“h.e.l.lo,” greeted Sun Yunsheng immediately.
“h.e.l.lo,” Chen Ying greeted back.
Because they all knew each other, they stayed in w.a.n.g Yao's clinic to chat for a while.
“Yunsheng seems to be much better.” Chen Ying knew about Yunsheng's condition, because Sun Zhengrong had taken his son to Beijing to see the best Traditional Chinese Medicine Pract.i.tioners. Yunsheng's condition wasn't as bad at the time.
“Yes, thanks to Dr. w.a.n.g's extraordinary medical skills,” said Sun Zhengrong.
“I agree with you,” said Chen Ying.
“What brings you here?” asked Sun Zhengrong.
“Oh, Ms. Song asked me to come by to invite Dr. w.a.n.g to come to Beijing,” said Chen Ying.
“I see,” said Sun Zhengrong.
He only knew that w.a.n.g Yao had seen the Head Elder, who had pa.s.sed away. He didn't expect that w.a.n.g Yao had also seen Su Xiaoxue, the precious princess of her family.
w.a.n.g Yao was apparently a distinguished guest of prestigious families in Beijing.
“Since we are together here, let me take you all out for lunch. My treat,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“Sounds good,” said Sun Zhengrong.
He paid the treatment fee without thinking. He didn't care about money. Compared to money, he valued w.a.n.g Yao more. He reckoned that w.a.n.g Yao was not only capable, but also had an extended social network.
They went to the same restaurant that w.a.n.g Yao and Chen Ying visited previously in the village next door.
w.a.n.g Yao ordered food from the hill and the river.
The food didn't cost much, but tasted unique.
After Sun Zhengrong and his son had left, Chen Ying consulted w.a.n.g Yao for advice on her brother's condition. Due to her brother's mental illness, she had consulted a number of specialists for advice, including a few prominent doctors. Plus, thanks to the fact that she had practiced Kung Fu since childhood and had some knowledge of Chinese Traditional Medicine, she was practically a Chinese Traditional Medical Pract.i.tioner herself. Of course she didn't have any clinical experience. Therefore, she wanted to learn from w.a.n.g Yao. She wanted to be able to take care of her brother when w.a.n.g Yao was not in Beijing. She hoped that she could identify the changes in her brother, which might have a positive impact on future treatment.
“Thank you,” said Chen Ying after w.a.n.g Yao had answered all her questions.
“You are welcome,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
He drove Chen Ying to the hotel in Lianshan town center, when went home.
After w.a.n.g Yao had left the hotel, Chen Ying summarized the information from her meeting with w.a.n.g Yao and then called Song Ruiping.
“h.e.l.lo, Ma'am, it's me, Chen Ying,” said Chen Ying.
“h.e.l.lo, have you met Dr. w.a.n.g?” asked Song Ruiping.
“Yes. He has been really busy lately, so his visit to Beijing was delayed. He said he would go to Beijing once he had everything sorted out here. He promised he would go, but didn't tell me the exact date,” said Chen Ying.
“You can ask him if there is anything we should prepare prior to his visit, or if we could help. If so, contact Boyuan,” said Song Ruiping.
“Yes, Ma'am” said Chen Ying.
Meanwhile, w.a.n.g Yao had gone back home.
“Yao, what does that Chen Ying do in Beijing?” asked Zhang Xiuying during dinner.
“You mean her occupation? She's sort of a housekeeper,” said w.a.n.g Yao after thinking for a moment.
Actually, w.a.n.g Yao didn't know what Chen Ying' role was. He only knew she worked for Su Xiaoxue's family. He reckoned her role was similar to Chen Boyuan's. They just had different tasks.
“Housekeeper? Does she work for a rich family?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Yeah, I think so,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
He didn't know how powerful Su Xiaoxue's family was, but he could tell her family was one of the most prestigious families in Beijing.
“I see. That girl is quite nice,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“What do you mean?!” w.a.n.g Yao was dazed for a second. He didn't know why his mother suddenly made such a comment.
“What brings her here?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Oh, she wants me to go to Beijing to see a patient,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“The patient you mentioned last time? The girl who couldn't move and was stuck in bed all the time?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Yes, she's much better now. She can get out of the bed. Although she still can't walk, she can go out in a wheelchair,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
Before, Su Xiaoxue's had ulcers all over her skin. She had to stay in a relatively confined s.p.a.ce to prevent infection. w.a.n.g Yao remembered clearly that her bed was surrounded by gauze. The essential oils burning in her room could kill the germs and expel any stray insects.
“Chen Ying came here not only for that girl, but also for her brother,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“Her brother's sick?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Yes,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“What's wrong with him?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“A mental problem.” w.a.n.g Yao pointed to his head.
“Is it bad?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Yes, It's very serious. Hard to cure,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
Chen Zhou's condition was very hard to cure.
“It seems that girl's got a tough life,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“Yeah, her brother is her only family member left,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
He knew Chen Ying's life was actually very stressful.
“Really? You should help her,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“I'll try my best,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“By the way, don't take advantage of that girl,” said Zhang Xiuying seriously.
“What?” w.a.n.g Yao almost spat out a mouthful of water.
“I'm serious. Don't do anything you are not supposed to do just because a pretty girl needs your help,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“Of course I won't!” said w.a.n.g Yao. “You know me!”
“Your mother meant well. She just wanted to remind you,” said w.a.n.g Fenghua, who had been smoking and had kept silent until now. “You will meet more people outside the village, and have more temptations. You need to stick to your principles.”
This was a serious advice from a father.
“I will stick to my principles,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“You practice medicine in order to help the public. You also need to be ethical and try your best to save people,” said w.a.n.g Fenghua.
w.a.n.g Yao received a call from Li Maoshuang that evening to ask him if he could go to the hospital the next day.
“Yes,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“Great! My cousins want to invite you for lunch to express their grat.i.tude,” said Li Maoshuang on the other side of the phone.
“They really don't need to do that,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“Will you go to the hospital tomorrow?” Zhang Xiuying overheard his conversation with Li Maoshuang.
“Yes, I need to visit a patient,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
“Good, I'll go with you. I want to visit your uncle's wife. She should be discharged soon,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“Okay,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
It was cold and windy that night.
“Is it cold on the hill?” asked Zhang Xiuying.
“Not really. I'm pretty fit now, so I'm not afraid of cold weather and heat,” said w.a.n.g Yao with a smile.
“Just take an extra quilt with you,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“No, I really don't need it,” said w.a.n.g Yao, smiling.
It was actually nice and warm on Nanshan Hill. But even if he was in a freezing place, he wouldn't feel anything given his current fitness.
“Alright, take care of yourself,” said Zhang Xiuying.
“I will,” said w.a.n.g Yao.
He went up to Nanshan Hill by himself.
He couldn't see the moon and the stars in the sky tonight.
The light on the hill was like a pea looking from distance.
w.a.n.g Yao was reading a medical book, which had come from the system, called Treatise on Miscellaneous Diseases.
One of the cases in the book caught his eye: A person had ulcers all over his body. The ulcers were as big as peas, and would broke if they were touched.
Another case mentioned a skinny person, whose face turned yellow, liked eating sour food. His treating doctor gave him Deworming Soup to take three times a day. Over one hundred insects were expelled from his body. The Deworming Soup contained ebony, citrus, areca, rhubarb, pinellia, rangoon creeper, and aurantii fructus. For those who had severe stomach pain, Yuen Long could be added to the formula. For those who had haemorrhoids, areca should be removed. For those who had diarrhea, berberine and baical skullcap root should be included. For those who experienced bloating and reduced appet.i.te, Sanxian should be included.
All the cases described in the book were considered rare. For each case, the author wrote in details of the symptoms, the formula prescribed, and what happened to the patient after taking the formula.
w.a.n.g Yao read the book slowly. He didn't want to miss any important information, because all of these cases were very rare. One of the cases was about a patient who suffered a condition similar to cancer. The patient was cured eventually. This really amazed w.a.n.g Yao. The patient underwent acupuncture as well as herbal therapy. The treatment method was unique. The patient also had an herb bath, which contained toxic gra.s.s. Apparently the pract.i.tioner tried to counteract one toxin with another.
The pract.i.tioner cured the patient, but the process was not doc.u.mented in detail. w.a.n.g Yao also hadn't seen that detox gra.s.s had been ever used in any other cases, including the ones in The Catalogue of Magic Herbs.
It was getting late.
w.a.n.g Yao didn't stop studying until it was past 11 pm.
San Xian barked.
w.a.n.g Yao checked the time.
He should go to bed.
San Xian was prompting him to rest.
“Thank you, San Xian, good night,” said w.a.n.g Yao gently.
San Xian lifted up his head, then laid down on his stomach in his warm dog house.
w.a.n.g Yao, San Xian, and Da Xia all went to sleep.
It was unclear if they would all meet in their dreams.
The temperature seemed to go up a bit the next day. It wasn't too cold in the morning.
w.a.n.g Yao left Nanshan Hill early in the morning. He left home for Lianshan People's Hospital with his mother after breakfast.
