Chapter 383 - See If It Works
“Oh, lil’ bro Guifeng! I had something urgent to do today, so I left early- My apologies, I’m really sorry about that!” Guifeng may be saying that, but he wasn’t trying to apologize in the slightest.
Guifeng was a bit displeased, but there was nothing he could do about it- what else could he do when he needed to rely on Liu Tianyi for the military’s medicine order?
“Haha, it’s fine, it’s fine!” Guifeng smiled like it was nothing. “By the way, brother Tianyi, I have something to ask you- that friend of my nephew, do you know him?”
“Oh, Mister Lin? Of course, of course I know him…” Tianyi said with a ‘haha’.
“Oh? Then his family…” Guifeng wanted to know where Lin Yi was coming from.
“Haha, must be quite something… I say, lil’ bro Guifeng, why are you asking this for?” Tianyi asked faintly.
“It’s nothing, I was just thinking about the Pill of LIfe Extension and Toxin Cleansing he gifted today, it looks like you know something about that, brother Tianyi?” Guifeng tested.
“That? Haha… it’s good stuff…” Tianyi had a pretty good idea what Lin Yi wanted, and that was to make the Kangs on Miracle Doctor Kang’s side regret. He wouldn’t mind revealing information that would lead to the regret, but the real information wouldn’t be coming out of his lips.
“Good stuff? Does that mean you know something, brother Tianyi?” Guifeng tensed- there was no reason for Tianyi to make something up like this. After all, he was Liu Tianyi, of House Liu! Even if he were close with him he wouldn’t be lying for Lin Yi’s sake!
As a result, Guifeng was starting to find the Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing genuine.
While Guifeng might be on the right tract, he wasn’t completely accurate- Tianyi really would lie if Lin Yi had asked for that help, and Tianyi would do so without hesitation!
“Haha, let’s not talk about that- it’s not something that can just be thrown around.” Tianyi made a ‘haha’ once more. “By the way, Guifeng, I’m going back soon- sending my old man back to Yanjing.”
“Hm? Brother Tianyi, wasn’t Elder Liu here for Miracle Doctor Guan to heal him? Why’s he going back?” Guifeng paused.
“Haha, he’s healed up, of course! He even wanted me to buy him four types of crops for his garden!” Tianyi laughed.
“Healed??” Guifeng was taken aback by the news. “Didn’t Miracle Doctor Guan say that only long-term acupuncture would work…”
“Haha, I wouldn’t joke around about my old man’s body- I wouldn’t get him back home if he wasn’t recovered!” Tianyi laughed. “Alright, I’ll talk with you next time, my old man’s asking me to join him on the dance rug…”
“Wha?!!” Guifeng couldn’t believe his ears! Dance rug?! Liu Zhenhu, that old man? On a dance rug? The guy had problems with just walking!
But the phone had been cut off before Guifeng could say anything about that… He sighed and walked back to the group, his expression sullen.
“How did it go?” Miracle Doctor Kang tensed up after seeing that look on his son’s face.
“Didn’t get a direct answer, but it seems like it really is good stuff!” Guifeng said with a lowered voice. “But I’ve received some important news… Liu Tianyi’s father, Elder Liu- he’s miraculously recovered and even dancing on a dancing rug…”
“What?!” Miracle Doctor Kang’s exclaimed upon hearing the insane words. “You’re telling me that the ninety year old man’s dancing on a dance rug? Seriously?”
Miracle Doctor Kang had seen what Zhenhu’s condition was before- even walking took him a great deal of effort, so how on earth was he dancing on a dance rug? His eyebrows twitched- he had a bad feeling about this. “Could it… have something to do with that pill?”
“That’s what I think too… It has to have something to do with that- why would that old fox Liu Tianyi mention that to me all of a sudden?” Guifeng nodded. “That pill might really be genuine, but what I don’t understand is where Kang Xiaobo’s friend got it from!”
“That kid looked like he was from a rich family- there’s nothing odd about a young master getting his hands on something rare… But this Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing- it really is real?” Miracle Doctor Kang lifted up the dog poop once more, still in disbelief. “How would something that smells this bad be effective?”
“Grandpa, as the saying went- bitter medicine makes for better medicine! I think there’s truth to that saying!” Zhaoming decided that it was time to show off the logic he’d come to a conclusion to earlier- he wanted to make up for his mistake, after all. Making himself seem more important would be beneficial.
“Hm.., Zhaoming isn’t wrong- bitter medicine does make for better medicine!” Miracle Doctor Kang nodded approvingly. “But, that’s still what it is, a saying- experiencing something first hand would be much more real than just hearing about it!”
“Grandpa, are you saying that…” Zhaoming asked.
“Here, cut this pill in half and consume it- see what effects it has!” Miracle Doctor Kang said after some hesitation.
“Ah? Me??” Zhaoming thought his grandpa was going to eat it, he never thought it’d be him!
“What’s wrong? You don’t want to have your life extended and your toxins cleansed?” Miracle Doctor Kang asked with his eyes on Zhaoming.
He himself didn’t really want to take the risk- he wasn’t as young as he used to be, and he might not be able to handle it. Zhaoming, however, was a different case.
“No… I…” Zhaoming felt like backing out- this Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing looked like it was good stuff, but that was still just a conjecture at this point! They couldn’t just eat it without a solid conclusion!
“You’re worried it’s poisonous?” Miracle Doctor Kang hmphed. “Idiot, Kang Xiaobo isn’t that big an idiot to present a poisoned pill in front of everyone! That’s murder right there, it’s prison for life! Even if it wasn’t some Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing there wouldn’t be any negative effects!”
“Dad… maybe I should be the one to test it…” Kang Cuipu said after some hesitation. Zhaoming was his son- he couldn’t just let him eat something with unknown origins!
In the Kang house, Elder Kang held first priority, and the eldest son Guifeng and his son Zhaolong second. His son and Cuipu himself were actually less valued, and something like testing medicine could only fall to him.
The key thing here was that this was restricted to the core of the Kang family- they couldn’t let an outsider carry out the test!
What if news got out that the Miracle Doctor Kang went and dug out the stepped-on pill back home to consume? People would burst out laughing at them!
This wasn’t a humiliation the Kang family could take!!
