Dr. Zhou narrowed his eyes as his chest heaved up and down heavily in rage. He pointed at Fu Zhi and looked at Secretary Liu. “Did you hear what she just said? She’s mocking me!
“You are saying you can wake Young Master Li up in 40 minutes? Nowadays, youngsters really have ideas above their station. I’m really curious to know what kind of method you’re going to use that gives you so much confidence that you can do something none of us can achieve.”
Fu Zhi replied plainly, “Acupuncture.”
She was holding a deep yellow pouch in her right hand. Her long, slender eyelashes cast shadows on her cheeks, so no one could read her expression.
“Acupuncture?! Ridiculous!” Dr. Zhou sneered. “You’re going to use acupuncture to treat Young Master Li? Do you think we are all idiots?”
Every doctor was familiar with acupuncture techniques. They were a key component of traditional Chinese medicine that was used to treat a variety of conditions by triggering specific points on the skin or the central nervous system with needles.
These techniques were considered a miracle by the medical field. Usually, it took roughly 10 years for a Chinese medicine practitioner to master the acupuncture techniques, and they would not simply use the techniques to treat their patients if they were not confident in their skill. After all, one simple mistake by an untrained hand could lead to tragic consequences.
Therefore, Dr. Zhou stamped his feet in fury. “Nonsense! Even Sun Sanzhen does not have the confidence to say he can wake Young Master Li up in just 40 minutes! You’re nothing but a little girl, yet you’d dare treat a patient with acupuncture? What are you going to tell Old Master Li if anything happens to Young Master Li?”
All the doctors looked indignantly at Fu Zhi.
“Secretary Liu, you might not know this, but a human body has 720 points. Amongst these 720 points, 108 are vital points, which are further classified into lethal points and normal points. If the acupuncturist inserts the needle into the wrong point, the patient will die in no time!”
“Regardless of whether we look at this from the aspect of experience or ability, Master Sun Sanzhen is way better than this little girl. Even a person like him doesn’t have the confidence to carry out such a feat, yet this little girl is saying that she can do it? I’m not sure if she is too confident or she’s just being delusional.”
“She isn’t a famous doctor. I’m sure she’s nothing but a charlatan who tricked Old Master Li and Professor He into believing that she’s the real deal.”
“Don’t you ever think that you can be a famous doctor just because you know some basic medical skills. You’re really young, so why don’t you just keep your feet on the ground and go learn some real skills instead of being a good-for-nothing cheater? The sun will rise from the west if you save Young Master Li!”
Everyone believed that Fu Zhi was a little girl who did not like to study and preferred to mess around.
There was coldness in Dr. Zhou’s eyes, as he was disgusted with Fu Zhi’s holier-than-thou attitude. “Listen here, you ignorant little girl. I’m going to be very clear: I’m 50% confident that I can save Young Master Li, but even if I can’t do it, you would never tell me what to do!”
After saying that, he turned around and ordered his group of doctors, “Let’s go prepare for the operation. We don’t have much time left.”
Fu Zhi looked at him defiantly, making Dr. Zhou feel provoked. Just as he was about to say something, he was pulled away by an unknown force and he stumbled, taking a few steps back.
“I’m not sure where you got the courage to say that you are only 50% confident about saving him. If I were you, I’d find a hole and bury myself in it.”
Dr. Zhou was filled with so much rage that his chest heaved up and down vigorously. Just as he was about to fight back, Fu Zhi went into Li Nanli’s room.
Then, she locked the door from the inside, causing Dr. Zhou to swallow all his curses back into his stomach pit.
Dr. Zhou snarled, “Come out!”
Fu Zhi looked at him through the window as if she was saying that there was nothing he could do if she did not want to go out.
When he saw that Fu Zhi was walking toward Li Nanli, the alarm in his heart blared out. He turned to Secretary Liu and said, “Chinese medicine is not the same as Western medicine. Without the aid of a professional diagnostic instrument, the result of the diagnosis tends to be inaccurate. There are a lot of risks involved in acupuncture. Even a Chinese medicine veteran cannot guarantee that they can avoid all the risks, let alone this young girl. You have to think twice about it, Secretary Liu!”
Everyone else joined the parade and began persuading Secretary Liu with all sorts of arguments.
Secretary Liu just said simply, “I would like to express my gratitude on behalf of President Li. However, Ms. Fu has been invited by Old Master Li. I’m sure he knows what he’s doing. Let’s just wait and see what she’s capable of.”
