“Are you sure that he can recover in a week’s time?” Huo Zijun was amazed by Xia Xibei’s promise.
If it was him who managed the treatment, it would take at least a fortnight for him to recover.
Even if his master were to take up the matter, it would still take around ten days.
But Xia Xibei was saying that she could settle it within a week?!
She must be kidding, right?
Faced with Huo Zijun’s doubt, Xia Xibei flashed him a confident smile. “Of course!”
In fact, she could make Qiao Yanjue recover within three days, but she didn’t want to put up such an outstanding performance.
Huo Zijun’s face turned serious. “May I know who your master is?”
“Does it have anything to do with my skills?” Xia Xibei questioned in return.
It had everything to do with her skills!
Traditional Chinese medicine was a heritage passed down from one generation to the next. Without being led by a master, it was very difficult for one to continue down the path.
It was different from western doctors that were produced in batches, which caused traditional Chinese medicine to suffer a gradual downfall.
Once he got to know who Xia Xibei’s master was, he would know her level.
“You can’t tell?” Huo Zijun asked.
“It’s not that I can’t tell, but you wouldn’t know the person even if I tell you.” Xia Xibei shrugged. “If you’re willing to let me treat him, I’ll commence. If you’re reluctant, you could settle it on your own.”
She wasn’t so earnest in treating Qiao Yanjue after all!
She wouldn’t even save him if she had known this! This guy was so annoying!
“Alright, you treat me.”
Qiao Yanjue gave her the green light before Huo Zijun had properly considered it.
“Yanjue!” Huo Zijun panicked.
“I trust her.”
Qiao Yanjue recalled the time when Xia Xibei helped him clean his wound. Her skills were smooth and clean, without the slightest bit of hesitation.
Although he wasn’t completely conscious, he could feel that Xia Xibei was capable.
Hence, he trusted her when she said she could do it.
‘I trust her.’
His words startled Xia Xibei a little. She never expected Qiao Yanjue to have so much confidence in her.
She felt that he wasn’t as annoying as before because of those three words that he had said.
“To ensure the results of the treatment, you have to come here every day.”
Xia Xibei frowned. “No way! I’m busy! I’m still a student!”
She still had to deal with Song Jiaren, so how would she have the time to come here every day?
Qiao Yanjue raised his brows. “I’ll go to your house then?”
Xia Xibei’s face turned very dark. “My house is small, it can’t accommodate a big Buddha like you!”
Qiao Yanjue wasn’t angry. “You decide, it’s either I go over, or you come over.”
“You’d better come here, I have all sorts of herbs here; it’s convenient at the least,” Huo Zijun chipped in.
If Xia Xibei came here, he would get to observe her up close, then he would know what level she was at.
After a moment of hesitation, Xia Xibei eventually nodded. “Okay, I’ll come here.”
“By the way, I forgot to get your name,” Huo Zijun asked like a gentleman.
“Alright, I’ll call you Xia then? My surname is Huo, and my name is Zijun. ‘Zi’ with a ‘mu’ and a ‘xin’, ‘Jun’ as in gentleman.”
“It’s fine, I’ll call you Brother Huo then!”
“I’m Qiao Yanjue.” Qiao Yanjue joined in.
“Mister Qiao,” Xia Xibei called him in a distant yet gracious tone.
Qiao Yanjue couldn’t help but begin to doubt himself when he saw Xia Xibei being so friendly to Huo Zijn but so indifferent toward him.
He couldn’t be so loathsome-looking, could he?
Having thought of that, his eyes turned hostile as he looked at Huo Zijun.
Huo Zijun finally came to his senses when he felt Qiao Yanjue’s hostility.
“Xia, you may take a rest first, I’ll excuse myself.”
