Ye Lang continued treating patients in the following months, providing the doctors a great opportunity for learning . They’d never pass up such an opportunity like this! Although the way Ye Lang used traditional Chinese medicine was a little confusing, at least they could watch him use alchemy during his treatment . No matter what, there was always something to learn .
They also naturally took on the responsibility to care for the patients Ye Lang treated during their learning process . This place became a huge hospital that sat for years after this incident, something the people didn’t expect at all .
This practice birthed many successors to Ye Lang . This group of talented successors could fulfil the wishes of many patients from across the lands--- full recovery .
As they approached the House of Confusion, the three girls grew increasingly nervous . It was as if they could feel Ye Lang’s familiar aura, but unfortunately, there was an incident that made them start to suspect the doctor wasn’t Ye Lang after all .
“What kind of stupid doctor is he? This is a robbery! They’re crazy to think I’m going to pay ten thousand gold coins for a consultation . . . I’m sure I can recover just fine without him!”
A middle-aged man clad in gold jewellery and expensive clothing was shouting outside the House of Confusion, pointing straight at the clinic . In the sun, his balding head looked very shiny .
After hearing him mention the ten thousand gold coins, the three of them started to think the doctor wasn’t Ye Lang . Ye Lang was a prodigal son, why would he accept payment? He’d refused all form of payments since young .
Yeah, that’s right . He’d never voluntarily accepted money .
Was it some kind of misunderstanding? Either Ye Lang wasn’t even asking for a payment in the first place or someone else was taking advantage of the situation to earn some cash .
Perhaps they’d only know if they met Ye Lang .
However, they were sure about one thing . The people around seem to not care, as if this had happened many times . They only looked at him with slight disgust .
Someone queuing up to see the doctor finally said, “If you want to leave, just leave! I’d pay the hundred thousand coins to kill your ass if I could get the chance to see the doctor . ”
“Get lost, the fewer people, the better!” Another person was very glad . They’d been queuing up for consultation, one less person meant a shorter waiting time .
“Get your ass out of here, don’t insult the genius doctor! No one likes you, keep your money and get out of this place,” reminded someone else .
“ . . . ”
“All you lowly peasants don’t know a thing . Genius doctor? I’m just here to give him face! I’m a duke, I’m rich and I have money . You think they’d dare turn me away?” huffed the man with disgust . Looks like he was a duke . Everyone wondered which unlucky kingdom had the misfortune of having this man as their duke .
“You’re done for!”
“May the heavens bless you . ”
“I pity him, he’s bald…”
“ . . . ”
Everyone suddenly had the same reaction: pity…
That was because everyone knew what was going to happen, and who would be involved .
A small team appeared before the duke . There weren’t many, just three or four of them but they made a very powerful team . They were high-ranked members of the Sacred Teachings’ Light Riders .
These were riders sent by the Sacred Teachings to protect their doctors . These doctors were the jewels of the Teachings, nothing must happen to them . Naturally, the city sent the best riders to protect them .
At the same time, they were also there to protect Ye Lang and maintain the order at the clinic . They would warn, attack and chase away anyone who threatened the safety of the region .
Although they were not considered Ye Lang’s bodyguards, Ye Lang was now mentoring the people they protected . For this, they respected him as a teacher- though he’d already earned their admiration from what he had done . That was why anyone who insulted Ye Lang would naturally also be dealt with .
“Excuse me, my lord, please leave . Sheng City does not welcome you and you are forbidden from setting foot into Sheng City ever again,” said one of the Light Riders, maintaining their professionalism . It wasn’t because they respected him, they were used to being courteous .
“What do you mean I’m not allowed in? I’m a follower of the Teachings, and I’ve contributed a lot!” The duke was stunned since the appearance of the riders .
He didn’t expect the House of Confusion to be guarded by Light Riders, and these riders seemed to respect Ye Lang too . He’d just insulted Ye Lang, were the consequences going to be serious?
The Sacred Teachings . Even the three empires respected this power, no one would want to rub them the wrong way . At the same time, no one wanted the religion as their enemy either, they wanted their blessings too .
This duke was also a follower of the religion and at the same time a powerful man . Regular religious workers had to respect him for he’d helped the city during a time of great need . That was why he could be this arrogant, he thought no one would dare cross him in this place . As for the towns outside the main city, he never cared for the people there .
“The Teachings will remember your contributions, but we still do not welcome you here . You have just insulted an honoured guest of the Teachings- he was the one who cured our people of the plague, he cured many, many of our followers and even our doctors,” said the rider . He didn’t know who this man was, but as a follower, the duke still had the right to know why he was banished .
“I… I know this, but why does he want me to pay ten thousand gold coins? This is a robbery!” The duke softened his tone, as if he’d just remembered Ye Lang was the legendary genius doctor who saved tens of thousands of people . And among these people were many followers of the Sacred Teachings .
These tens of thousands of people would naturally honour and respect him, he was almost a saint in this region .
Right now, he was here to ruin this saint’s reputation to gain a little footing for himself . At the same time, he had to change the topic of conversation .
He didn’t want to provoke the rider, that would be very stupid .
A thin, dark youth appeared at the entrance . “Well, the sir did say this indeed IS a robbery . If you don’t like it, then you may leave . Don’t disturb the other people here . ”
