For the rest of the days, apart from doing acupuncture for Jiang Jun Xian, she would also have to go to Sun Yu Wei’s courtyard from time to time.
After a month passed, the servant lady’s condition had already improved by half. This caused the people in the Xuan Qiu clan to believe in Sima You Yue’s medical abilities. At the same time, they also started to have their own plans.
On this day, Sima You Yue came out from Sun Yu Wei’s courtyard and was stopped halfway.
“Lady You Yue.”
Sima You Yue saw the people in front of her, and she recognised one of the doctors of the Xuan Qiu Clan, Xuan Qiu Rong. however, she didn’t have any good impression of him so she nodded her head, which was considered as a reply.
“Lady You Yue, are you going to return? Why don’t I walk you back?” Xuan Qiu Rong said.
“There is no need. I have traversed this many many times and am already familiar with it. If there is nothing else, I will head back first.” Sima You Yue rejected him directly.
Xuan Qiu Rong was rather angry, however, he did not show it. When he saw that Sima You Yue didn’t seem to want to waste words, he told her about his motive directly.
“Young Miss You Yue, I came to look for you today because I have something I wish to discuss with you.”
Sima You Yue saw the greed in his eyes and sneered inwardly. She didn’t say anything.
This Xuan Qiu Rong had initially snubbed her, but he probably changed his mindset to ask her about her acupuncture methods.
Xuan Qiu Rong saw that she didn’t say anything, and was raging internally. If the average person saw her acting this way, they wouldn’t continue. Unfortunately, his skin was a lot thicker than the average person, so he pressed on, even forcing a smile as he said, “Lady You Yue, I came here today because I want to make a deal with you.”
Sima You Yue continued to look apathetically at him. She still didn’t say anything, showing that she was not interested in this deal of his at all.
“Lady You Yue, I wish to use my arts in manual therapy in exchange for your acupuncture methods. What do you think?”
Sima You Yue glanced at him and could no longer continue pretending to smile. She said solemnly, “Doctor Rong, everyone knows how powerful these acupuncture methods are right? As for your arts in manual therapy, let’s not talk about the fact I already know it. Even if I didn’t, I wouldn’t make this deal with you.”
“Then what will help you make this deal?”
“This has been taught to me by my Master. He gave orders that there must only be one single origin. I cannot tell it to anyone else. Doctor Rong, my deepest apologies! I still have to head back to perform treatment for my Senior Brother, goodbye.” After speaking, she walked past Xuan Qiu Rong and headed directly to the courtyard in which she resided.
The place that they were at was not far from the courtyard. The moment Sima You yue entered, she saw Su Xiao Xiao and the other two with dark expressions.
Sima You Yue was scared by the way they looked and asked, “What’s going on? Did the Xuan Qiu clansmen bully you?”
Could it be that they took advantage of the time where she was not around to run over here?
“What do you mean they bullied us? They obviously bullied you!” Han Miao Shuang walked over, then poked her forehead with a finger, “Look at you. Your medicinal arts are so powerful, so how could you not hide it from them? That’s great then, people are starting to plot against you!”
When Sima You Yue heard what she said, she heaved a sigh of relief. It was fine as long as they were not getting bullied.
“Senior Sister, if they didn’t see my medicinal skills, they would never let me perform treatment for Xuan Qiu He. As for me, I have to obtain that divine medicine!” Sima You Yue siad, “My father has already been back for many years. Without the spirit energy to use any skills, his body is aging. I… can wait no longer.”
Sima Liu Xuan could not cultivate, and his lifespan was even half of that of an average person. She had already wasted so many years, and did not have much time to find any other way for him.
Even Wu Lingyu only knew of this one method, so she could only take this path.
When they saw that Sima You Yue’s expression wasn’t great, Han Miao Shuang and the others swallowed the rest of their words. They could only heave a long sigh.
It was finally Su Xiao Xiao who said something, “Junior Sister, you shouldn’t just see how Xuan Qiu He is a decent guy. All of those from the hidden families are like these. They are all unbearably arrogant, and are not worth making acquaintances with.”
“I know.” Sima You Yue knew this as well.
At that time, she had interacted with the Northern Du Clan and the Eastern Lai CLan. she naturally knew that the people from the hidden families were not nice to interact with. People like Xuan Qiu He were really the minority.
“You can relax. Although these people covet my skills, without me performing treatment on Xuan Qiu He, they will not dare to act against me.” Sima You Yue smiled at the three of them.
“But these people hover around outside all day. Just looking at them hurts my eyes.” Han Miao Shuang was still a little peeved.
“It’s a good thing that Senior Brother has already finished the first part of his treatment. He will not need constant acupuncture from now on. The test is almost over as well. I guess that I will be able to treat Xuan Qiu He soon. Once his treatment is complete and I obtain the divine medicine, we can leave.” Sima You Yue had the support of the Feng Clan, so she could act unbridled in the face of this hidden family.
“What I’m afraid of is that they will do something before we leave.” Jiang Jun Xian was worried about the back part.
Although they knew that the Feng Clan was in her little realm, Sima You Yue did not tell them of the Feng Clan’s origins. They only knew that those people were very powerful, but they had no idea whether or not they could suppress the hidden families.
“Let’s talk about the later things later.” Sima You Yue couldn’t spell it out so clearly, so she could only ask them not to think so much about it.
On that day, Xuan Qiu He came looking for Sima You Yue. It was to apologise on behalf of that doctor who had asked to exchange his medical skills with Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue straightforwardly told him that it had nothing to do with him, so he had no reason to be apologetic. Then, told him about how she couldn’t spread her arts outside. Then, she told him that she believed that the Xuan Qiu Clan would not do anything to trouble her. Xuan Qiu He directly promised that these sorts of things would no longer happen.
Three days later, after she had performed the last set of acupuncture for the servant lady, she instructed her not to stop eating her medicine for the rest of the year. Then, her mission was considered to be complete.
Sun Yu Wei saw that her servant lady’s condition got increasingly better and truly believed in Sima You Yue’s medicinal skills.
“Lady You Yue, since this situation has already been settled, you may start treatment for He’er in two days. Do you need to prepare anything?”
Sima You Yue shook her head, saying, “I’ve been researching his condition for a few years, and I’ve already prepared all the things that need to be prepared.”
“How do you plan to conduct his treatment?” Sun Yu Wei was still rather worried.
“Actually, the most difficult part of his treatment will be to get rid of the seal in his body. As long as I can make it smaller and stop it from pressing on his nerves, he will naturally be able to walk and see.” Sima You Yue said.
“I heard He’er say that you have an eighty percent chance of success?”
Sima You Yue nodded.
“How long do you need?”
“You only need ten days?” She took around two months to treat her servant lady, but she only needed ten days to treat Xuan Qiu He?
“The truth is, I need one day to deal with that thing, and the remaining nine days are just to heal his nerves.”
“That will not impact his seal, right?”
“Aunt, you can relax. This will only seal that thing tighter. After all, after making it smaller, its impact will be reduced as well.”
“Since that’s the case, you can begin treatment in two days.”
Sima You Yue indicated that she agreed, then turned around to leave.
