Reviving a Corpse
Feng Yu Heng’s shout nearly frightened the life out of the matriarch, as she said: “What are you doing?”
Feng Yu Heng replied to the matriarch words: “Naturally, I am sending them to the Imperial palace! Weren’t they wanting to go complain to the Emperor? It would not be good if they could not find the way. But this corpse must also be brought along. I will have a servant go find an imperial coroner to see whether it was the pill that caused his death. Only after examining the corpse can a result be declared.”
Hearing her response, the matriarch relaxed. There could not possibly be anything wrong with Feng Yu Heng’s medical pill. She was very certain of this point. She had also taken the medicines that Feng Yu Heng had given her. Although there were no medical pills, the other kinds of medicines were very effective too.
The matriarch nodded: “That’s right, A-Heng, you are doing things very properly.”
The unruly crowd immediately became dispirited upon hearing mention of a coroner. They looked around at each other, not knowing what their next step should be.
Feng Yu Heng was entertained by their expressions. She could not help but say: “Not even being able to follow a flow chart for framing somebody, yet you dare to do such an errand?” She suddenly shouted and scolded them angrily “Speak! Who was it that told you to do cause trouble for the Feng family?”
The crowd began trembling, and the sturdy man subconsciously said “It was a gi…”
“Shut your mouth! Do you not want to live anymore?” Someone at his side tightly pinched him, giving him a warning.
The sturdy man quickly shut his mouth and remained silent.
Feng Yu Heng had received a piece of information from the other side and glanced from the corner of her eye at Feng Chen Yu. She saw the other side had a worried expression, but she saw a hint of joy in her eyes.
But she immediately determined that this matter was not caused by Chen Yu.
Then who could it be?
Bu Ni Shang?
That was quite likely!
While she was thinking, both sides remained in a deadlock. Feng Jin Yuan was anxious over this matter and waved his hand: “If you do not agree with having a coroner perform an examination, then take the corpse back! This matter is related to the Hundred Herb Hall and is unrelated to my Feng manor. If you dare cause trouble for no reason, this prime minister will definitely have the governor of the capital punish you for the crimes of causing trouble!”
Seeing Feng Jin Yuan become fierce, the crowd of unruly people became scared. This was, after all, the current prime minister. Normally, how could they meet such a level of a high-ranking official? Even if they could meet one, they would need to remain at a distance and bowed down. They would be afraid to accidentally bump heads such an honored person, which would be like signing their own death warrant.
But today, not only did they bite the bullet and bump heads, they even forcefully blamed the Feng family falsely of a crime. If it were not for their employers paying them too much, they would rather die than take this risk.
With things progressing as they had, the sturdy man began acting childishly. He simply dropped his butt on the ground “If you do not give an explanation, then we will not leave!”
“That’s right! We will not leave!” Everyone followed suit. For a while, there was a large group of people seated in front of the door to Hundred Herb Hall.
Feng Jin Yuan felt his head swell and asked Feng Yu Heng: “Would it be alright to call for a government official?”
Feng Yu Heng, however, shook her head: “If we are rough with them, then it will become the Hundred Herb Hall bullying people. The effect on the Feng family name will be too large.”
Feng Jin Yuan also felt this way, but this was a situation where the scholar had a reason that could not be clearly said! He was completely out of options, so he simply closed his eyes and ignored everything.
Feng Yu Heng thought to herself: What could I have possibly relied upon you for? She then looked at the unruly people on the ground and sneered: “The medical pills my Hundred Herb Hall provides are unique within the entirety of Da Shun. The reason the medical pills are so expensive is each small pill has five times the medicinal content of a medical soup. These medical pills are easy to carry around and are easier to consume than medical soups. They can be taken any time and any where. Even if there is no water, they can be chewed up and swallowed. There is also a high content of hawthorn to reduce the bitterness. This will make it so the patient will not find it hard to swallow.”
She no longer paid any attention to the unruly people, instead beginning to slowly mention all of the upsides to the pill.
The troublemakers became confused, “What are you doing?”
Feng Yu Heng spread out her hands: “Very clearly, I am advertising my medical pill.”
“Your medical pill has already killed someone. What the hell are you advertising!”
“That is what you have said. Before a coroner comes to perform an examination, I will not admit it.”
Hearing her still mentioning the coroner, the people seated on the ground began trembling. Gathering together, they began discussing something in hushed voices.
Feng Yu Heng did not pay any attention to them. She once again spoke, this time about the Hundred Herb Hall’s business: “Our Hundred Herb Hall does not just sell medical herbs. There are also doctors who will perform a free examination before prescribing medicine. Especially doctor Le Wu You. Two or three times every month, he will personally be an attending physician. He will focus on treating all kinds of untreatable diseases.”
Hearing her mention Le Wu You, an unrelated citizen cut in “That doctor Le is truly a divine doctor! My wife’s eyes could no longer see clearly five years ago. After finding doctor Le for a few treatments, she can now see perfectly clearly with no blurriness.”
He took the lead, and even more people began praising Le Wu You.
Feng Yu Heng remembered the madam with bad eyes. It was a slight cataract.
Hearing everyone’s praise, the unruly people lost it and pointed directly at Feng Yu Heng: “What exactly are you doing?”
Feng Yu Heng smiled and shrugged: “Again, very clearly, I am stalling for time.”
“Why are you stalling for time?”
“Naturally, it is to wait for someone.”
“Waiting for someone?” They began to feel afraid. It wouldn’t be that she had already sent someone to call a coroner, right? “Who are you waiting for?”
“She is waiting for this prince!” Everyone heard this voice come from the back. It was a clear and swift voice that floated over. The voice did not seem to be particularly loud, but everyone was able to hear it.
Hearing just the words this prince caused the citizen’s legs to go weak, as they all knelt.
The people of the Feng family were also quite shocked. Raising their heads, they saw a carriage approaching. Standing there was the seventh prince, Xuan Tian Hua.
Chen Yu’s eyes lit up then immediately darkened. It seemed that the matriarch had taken a step forward and blocked her line of sight.
She truly wanted to push the matriarch to the side, and her hand was already raised; however, she endured it.
Yi Yue was at her side and quietly advised her: “Young miss, you absolutely must not get angry.”
She took two deep breaths and finally stemmed her anger.
Feng Jin Yuan just wanted to ask this second daughter of his when she had called for his Highness the seventh prince, but when he saw Huang Quan standing behind Xuan Tian Hua, he understood.
He did not think any further. Leading everyone of the Feng manor, he knelt down. From the carriage, Xuan Tian Hua raised his hand and waved his sleeve, saying: “You may all rise.”
The sound of a group of people thanking him for his grace sounded out. Everyone looked towards Xuan Tian Hua with a worshiping expression. This unique man was like a deity who descended from the heavens to the mortal realm. Even when he looked at the troublemakers, he still had a pleasant look.
“The boss of Hundred Herb Hall is this prince’s sister, which is to say his Highness Prince Yu’s future princess. Today, something happened at Hundred Herb Hall, but this prince did not come to take a side. Instead, it is to act as a witness.”
Everyone was curious, what was he going to be a witness for?
Feng Yu Heng took a few steps forward and arrived before Xuan Tian Hua. One was proper and otherworldly, while the other was eccentric. This was truly a pleasant scene.
“The corpse’s glabella is slightly bruised. There are signs of blood coming from the mouth, eyes and nose. He appears to have been poisoned.” She spoke slowly, listing out the symptoms.
The sturdy man found some courage and said: “He was poisoned by the medical pill.”
Feng Yu Heng ignored him, only taking time to speak with Xuan Tian Hua: “In the end, what poison was it, only the poisoned person can say clearly. But these folks will not allow for a coroner to perform an autopsy. This, A-Heng can understand. After all, an autopsy requires the body be cut open. This is a bit cruel to the deceased.”
Xuan Tian Hua listened carefully, faintly smiling and nodding. Only when she finished speaking did he say: “Then your opinion is…”
“Revive the person and have him tell us what exactly he ate.”
Feng Yu Heng’s words were so shocking that everyone present collapsed. Even Yao shi trembled and nervously looked over towards her.
Feng Jin Yuan then glanced at the corpse on the ground, his body becoming completely stiff. The corpse was very thoroughly dead, so how could it be revived?
But Xuan Tian Hua did not believe that Feng Yu Heng was exaggerating. He simply nodded and said: “Very well, then revive the corpse.”
The people thought these two were definitely crazy. Reviving a dead person, were they really deities?
But nobody dared speak up. One was the daughter of the prime minister and one was the son of the Emperor. With these two together, they formed an indestructible alliance.
Feng Yu Heng glanced at the unruly troublemakers and coldly said: “Do you have any objections?”
What sort of objection could they have. The person was dead, this was very certain. They had lived for so long, yet they had never heard of a dead person being revived.
The sturdy man shook his head, “No objections. If you have the ability to revive him, then we will have him say it himself. But if he can’t be revived?”
“Then I will admit it.” Feng Yu Heng did not want to say too much. She gave an order to a clerk at Hundred Herb Hall: “Bring the deceased to the back hall.” She then said to Xuan Tian Hua: “Seventh brother, please head inside.”
Xuan Tian Hua nodded then pointed at two troublemakers and said: “You two, come with me. Act as witnesses with this prince.”
Just like this, Feng Yu Heng brought three people into Hundred Herb Hall. Feng Jin Yuan and the matriarch wanted to follow them in, but they were brought to the outer hall to rest by Wang Lin “Doctors treating people and saving lives require peace and quiet.”
Feng Jin Yuan flicked his sleeve and muttered: “So bothersome!” In fact, he truly wanted to see how a dead person could be revived.
However, he did not know that the revival of a dead person could not be seen by even Xuan Tian Hua, who was stopped outside a small room. “Seventh brother, do not blame me. A-Heng can not be disturbed by people when saving lives.” After she said this, she took a couple steps forward and lowered her voice and said: “The person is not dead at all. I naturally have a method for waking him up.”
Xuan Tian Hua finally calmed down, saying with a smile: “Since that is the case, this prince will wait here for the good news.”
Even he was not allowed in, so the two troublemakers naturally did not dare make a request. They could only stand behind Xuan Tian Hua and obediently stay in place. Their gazes, however, would occasionally drift towards Xuan Tian Hua. With an honest to goodness prince nearby, the two thought of how they would boast about this wondrous experience. However, they did not think about whether a prince appearing before them was a blessing or a curse.
The corpse was carried into the room by the store’s clerk. After Feng Yu Heng lifted the curtain and entered, Huang Quan and Wang Chuan immediately closed the room’s door then guarded the door. Not to mention people, even flies would not be able to fly in.
As for Feng Yu Heng, who had entered the room, she quickly walked up to the corpse and grasped the person’s wrist. Moving her consciousness, she directly entered her pharmacy space.
