Chapter 833 – Really Unlucky!
Old Ge started to cough as if he had asthma, and saliva dripped out of his quivering mouth. But he couldn’t speak a word. After panting vigorously for a long time, his eyelids suddenly flipped. He flopped onto his chair and his body began to shake.
“Damn it… From the looks of it, it’s better to prepare him a coffin ourselves… He’s so shameless!” Chu Yang scolded. He turned around to look at Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao, who were in utter furiousness, and said, “My two brothers, am I right?”
Chu Tenghu’s face looked as cold as water and he didn’t speak.
Chu Tengjiao thought of the teaching by his father yesterday:
The two of you shall allow him to throw his temper. You only need to grab the purple crystals, then everything will be fine! Don’t bother him. If he has gone to the extremities, we have plenty of means to deal with him.
So he blurted out, “Big brother, you’re right.”
When this was said, Old Ge instantly cast a dirty look. Although Chu Yang had a shrewd tongue, Old Ge didn’t pass out. But he felt the urge to faint upon hearing to Chu Tengjiao’s words.
At this moment, the sound of a carriage was heard in the outside. A carriage stopped and two servants held an old man down. The old man walked in with a quivering body, saying, “May I know if Divine Doctor Chu is here? I would like to consult him…”
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tenghu looked at each other and at once, they became excited.
Purple crystals are coming!
They didn’t think of helping Old Ge to stand up, and instead rushed forward to greet the patient, expressing, “What illness do you have? This is Divine Doctor Chu.” And as they said, they pointed to Chu Yang.
The old man’s eyes instantly sparkled. He held on to Chu Yang’s hands, “Divine Doctor Chu… you’re really young and gifted. I’m Song Wanzhuang, an elder from the Song clan in the Flat Mountain Ridge… These few years, my old injuries are really making me suffer.”
Chu Yang smiled warmly, saying, “Elder, please sit. I guess you also understand the rules of my Purple Crystals Huichun Hall?”
Song Wanzhuang nodded repeatedly, saying, “Yes, yes, I’ve already prepared the purple crystals…”
“Alright,” Chu Yang responded as he smiled. He extended two fingers and confidently lay it on his patient’s wrist.
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao looked at each other and saw the contentment in each other’s eyes. The other doctor sent here by Chu Feilong secretly moved closer to them and looked at Chu Yang consulting his patient, hoping that he could learn some skills from Chu Yang…
Chu Yang squinted his eyes as he performed this procedure, presenting himself as a decent doctor. After a long time, his brows jumped once, then frowned. After which, his face began to turn dark.
He put down his hand, looked heavily at Song Wanzhuang, and said, “This injury should have been caused 50 or 60 years ago?”
Song Wanzhuang’s eyes widened and he responded in astonishment, “Divine Doctor Chu is indeed awesome!”
“And, there was an expert, who’s at least a second stage Martial King, who had struck you! Erm… he struck you with a poison palm. Erm, let me sense it closer… is it Lily Poison Palm? If I didn’t estimate wrongly, it should be hit on your shoulder… and not other vulnerable areas…” Chu Yang gabbled on.
Song Wanzhuang was even more astonished, and said, “Yes, yes, it’s all correct! Divine Doctor Chu is indeed fantastic!”
“Alas…” Chu Yang gave a long sigh, “Elder, am I right to say that your cultivation has started to decline in the last ten years?”
Song Wanzhuang nodded continuously, and appeared to be even more respectful, “Doctor, nothing can escape from your eyes!”
Chu Yang drew in a deep breath and said, “Elder, but I don’t understand… You were struck with this palm 50 or 60 years ago, and had suppressed it for so many years. Why did you stop suppressing it for the last ten years?”
Song Wanzhuang sighed, saying, “Ten years ago… I was 95 years old. And… my body started getting weaker and weaker day by day… It’s a long story.”
Chu Yang shook his head pitifully.
A glimmer of hope flashed within Song Wanzhuang. He asked nervously, “Divine Doctor Chu, does my injury… still have hope?”
Chu Yang gave a deep sigh, and responded, “Elder, it’s really a pity, you’ve come too late.”
“Ah?” Song Wanzhuang screamed.
“If you had come ten years ago, I would have cured you…” Chu Yang shook his head and sighed, saying, “It’s only a pity that your strength is getting weaker and weaker in these ten years, and it couldn’t suppress the remaining poisons in your body. The poisons had already entered your bone marrows. Your elixir has now collapsed while your meridians have stopped working… I’m… really sorry.”
Everyone was dumbstruck.
Nobody had thought that this guy, who had spoken so knowledgeably at the start, spoke in the end:
I can’t cure you…
Song Wanzhuang left sadly.
Before he left, Chu Yang taught Song Wanzhuang a simple way of exercising. Chu Yang said that although this exercise could not remove the poisons, it could help to relieve the body…
Looking at Song Wanzhuang’s departure, Chu Yang sighed deeply. He looked sorry and guilty. “Ah, a doctor should be responsible for his patients… Looking at my patient suffering from their illnesses, yet helpless to cure them… It’s really… Ah, this sense of helplessness and guilt really saddens me…”
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tenghu looked at each other. They didn’t earn any purple crystals but still had to go forth to comfort Chu Yang.
The more Chu Yang condemned himself, the more miserable the duo felt, to the extent that they wanted to commit some acts of murder to vent their misery. But still had no choice but to comfort Chu Yang…
The duo definitely didn’t know that the seemingly simple exercise that Chu Yang had taught Song Wanzhuang… was the best treatment method that the sword spirit had provided… If Song Wanzhuang were to practice accordingly, in a year’s time, he would realize that he had completely recovered…
Chu Yang sighed deeply as he enjoyed the words of consolation given by the two kids. Chu Yang even had tears in his eyes, and said, “There’s no reason for the way that Heaven dictates the Earth. Every living creature would have their own sufferings. It’s so pathetic that mankind has to undergo so many miseries…”
A perfect gentleman who’s noble and righteous!
Such poise and tone would definitely make those ‘great heroes’ out there in the world feel guilty!
Then, a few other patients arrived. Chu Yang accurately pointed out their symptoms, but again shook his head to apologize to all of them that he was helpless and felt sorry for them…
Otherwise, if you can find so, so and so from the Nine Great Herbal Medicines… perhaps there’s still hope…
After every patient had left, he would again start to exclaim for one round…
Veins protruded out of Chu Tenghu’s and Chu Tengjiao’s face, and they looked like they wanted to swallow him.
Chu Yang remained like this until the afternoon.
Everyone who had come to consult Divine Doctor Chu all had terminal illnesses! Divine Doctor Chu couldn’t cure any one of them.
In the end, Chu Tenghu and his brother didn’t go forth to console Chu Yang any further and instead watched him coldly like bystanders.
But Divine Doctor Chu still continued to express his sadness, “Alas… It’s so sad! Such a pity to my medical skills! I’ve originally wanted to bring benefit to humanity, but I’m all too helpless with the unreasonable nature of heaven and earth! People are destined to die out of old ages or illnesses! I have a benevolent heart and I really wanted to save the humanity out of their miseries, but I’m helpless. What sadder things are there on Earth? Alas… heaven and earth, why are you so merciless… All the different gods out there, please save my patients…”
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao looked black all over their faces. How they hoped to swallow Chu Yang up in a mouthful!
It was the same the second day.
The third day… he still had no ideas…
After every patient had left, Divine Doctor Chu would start to exclaim, “Alas~~~ I’m really helpless…”
Another three days passed.
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao finally couldn’t bear further.
Before we came, you could cure every patient that had come. But ever since we came, you’ll chase every patient out. What do you mean?
They finally realized what Chu Yang was thinking:
You want to exploit me to earn purple crystals? Stop dreaming! I’ll rather not earn than be exploited by you!
I’ve 8000 purple crystals in my hands anyway…
“Big brother, what exactly do you mean?” Chu Tenghu said in rage with slanted eyes.
“What… What do I mean?” Chu Yang asked.
“I don’t believe that you can’t treat any of those patients?” Chu Tenghu was furious:
You want to fool us like we’re idiots? How dare you!
“I really can’t cure them… I don’t have the skills,” Chu Yang smiled and said, “If you don’t believe, you can pull the patients back to allow these two respectable doctors to treat them? Ah, you should actually understand, I’m so young, how will I be so skilled… It’s only that I was lucky a few days ago…”
Chu Tengjiao yelled, “But you can’t be so unlucky that you can’t cure any one of the patients now!”
Chu Yang threw out his hands, saying, “As both of you saw, I’m just that unlucky… Didn’t you see how guilty I am now? How helpless? How ashamed…”
Chu Tenghu’s face turned pale. He wanted to fly into a rage, but he suppressed it again. He put up a smiley face and said, “Big brother… I know that you’re not happy, but… as you said, we’re from one clan, and everything we do is for the clan… As members of a noble family, once our clan strengthens, only can we…”
“Yes…” Chu Yang said seriously, “This is really true! As members of the Chu clan, even if we die, our souls will still belong to that of the Chu clan. For the gain of the clan, even if we have to undergo the most severe hardships, we should be willing to go through it! I’m very happy that both of you have such a great realization. As juniors of the Chu clan, it’s really good that you can think this way.”
“Let’s work hard!” Chu Yang said sincerely.
Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao’s face turned black from anger. They stared at this shameless person. Their teeth clattered and they clenched their fists tightly.
Both of them had given up the huge profits that they could gain from another important post to come here instead.
But they had never thought that this fellow was so shameless. He had rather everyone to suffer from no profits. If they had known this earlier, how would they still come here?
Aside, Old Ge sounded sarcastically, “Naturally everyone regards clan interests highly, but not for some people who had led a wandering life since young.”
“Damn old dog! Damn old servant!” Chu Yang was furious, and he slapped Old Ge just as he turned around to face him. This slap was rather loud and crisp. He yelled, “As a servant of the Chu clan, you dared to reprimand a young master of the clan! On behalf of the clan, I’ll punish you! On behalf of the clan rules, I’ll whip you! On behalf of the clan master, I’ll settle you! On behalf of the law-enforcement officers, I’ll teach you a lesson! On behalf of my second uncle, I’ll knock out your teeth, kick off your legs, pull out your tongue and smash your mouth…”
As he scolded, he slapped furiously and continuously.
Although the poor Old Ge had some cultivations, it was gone to waste these few years, moreover… how would he have expected some treatment? And all the more, he hadn’t expected this eldest young master of the clan to strike out in such an indecent manner. After enduring only five or six slaps, he started to vomit blood and passed out.
Chu Yang punched and kicked exhaustively. Finally, he stopped. He looked like he was really tired, his two hands were holding on to his knees and he was gasping for breath. He looked at Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao angrily and said, “It’s your turn now to punish this old dog. Is there no justice? Are there no family rules? He even dared to scold us… He’s really evil!”
