In contrast, Supreme Gao's reaction was calmer.
Who was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian? No one would dare to use his name lightly to deceive others. If the old man found out about this, he would certainly rush over for a kill!
Therefore, since she dared to make such a claim, there must be some truth to it.
"Hehe." Imperial physician Qi did not wait for Supreme Gao to speak and sneered instead. A cold light flashed across his eyes and he asked arrogantly, "I seem to remember that Mo Shangfei of the Mo family has never accepted any post as anyone's disciple so how could he be a grand disciple?"
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "While it's true that he never accepted a post as anyone's disciple in the past but I've just accepted him as my disciple!"
The woman's cold and calm voice was like a heavy thunder which struck into everyone's hearts.
Imperial Physician Qi has just mentioned that Mo Shangfei had never accepted a discipleship so he could not possibly have a teacher. Then that woman had said that she has just taken Mo Shangfei under her wing at this very moment! Does this not imply that she was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's disciple?
Mo Shangfei was suddenly enlightened. No wonder she knew the relationship between my cousin and the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian even when the world did not. It was because she's the Holy Doctor's disciple.
No wonder she had such a good relationship with my cousin!
Supreme Gao took a deep breath as he ignored the ugly look on Imperial Physician Qi's face. His eyes darted back and forth as he asked, "Miss, can you then ask the Holy Doctor to treat the Crown Prince's illness?"
If the Holy Doctor is willing to help, that old fart from the Qi family can screw off wherever he wishes. I'll no longer need to wait on him anymore!
"I did say that I'm here to give a betrothal gift." Gu Ruoyun smiled serenely, "The first betrothal gift is to cure his Royal Majesty the Crown Prince's illness!"
Actually, the reason why Gu Ruoyun had mentioned her relationship with the Holy Doctor was to provide Mo Shangfei with a position suitable enough to match up to the Little Princess. Besides, there was also another reason...
If that old man, my master, finds out that someone has claimed to be his disciple, he would certainly come from afar to look for them.
It's simply too difficult to search for anyone amongst the great population in the East Peak Mainland so why don't I make that old man come to me instead?
Gu Ruoyun stroked her chin and smiled.
We haven't seen each other in six years. I wonder if the old man still holds the same morality and conduct. He was forever immersed in the study of medicine, so immersed that he could go for days without taking care of himself. Each time I met the old man, he would always be dressed in robes that... No longer had their original color. His hair would be in a huge mess like he had just been in an explosion.
"Your Imperial Majesty, do you really believe her?"
Qi Haoran gnashed his teeth when he saw the sparkle in Supreme Gao's eyes, "She's using the Holy Doctor's name to deceive us. If you really believe her, I'm afraid that the Crown Prince's life will end here!"
After he had spoken, he then turned his gaze towards Gu Ruoyun.
"Woman, let me advise you. The Holy Doctor's name is not one for you to slander! My grandfather met him last year and discussed medicine with him. He has never heard him mention anything about having a disciple. With my grandfather's relationship with him, do you think that my grandfather wouldn't be aware of him having disciple?"
Of course, the truth of the matter was that during every medicinal discussion, Imperial Physician Qi had always tried very hard to curry favor with the Holy Doctor. While the Holy Doctor found it irritating, he still gave a few casual notes. Hence, Imperial Physician Qi had used this as his right to show off.
Even though he was considered to be second only to the Holy Doctor, the distance between his and the Holy Doctor's skills was more than just a small fraction. There were also over ten doctors who were nearly on par with Imperial Physician Qi's level...
Those people were also all skilled doctors second only to the Holy Doctor!
This clearly shows how great the difference actually was between the two of them.
