Chapter 272 – Searching for her among thousands
The carriage had just arrived at the thatched hut where the medical center was located, Fire Spirit was the first to get off his horse. He took a step forward and knocked on the door. “Is anyone in? We have a person that is heavily injured!”
After the knocking sounded on the door, they heard hurried footsteps coming from within. Fire Spirit retreated a step, and the door was opened from inside by someone. A small and young medical student drilled out from the crack made by the door. He looked left, right, then asked. “What matters do you guys have to knock on the door in the middle of the night?”
“Little friend, we have an injured person here, can we go into the medical center to seek treatment?” At this time, Chu Qing-Yan had also gotten off the carriage. She smiled toward the little young medical student and said this with good manners.
Hearing that someone was injured, the little young medical student opened the door. “You guys come in first, I’ll go call our Senior Sister.”
Chu Qing-Yan nodded, Earth Spirit and others had already lifted Xiao Xu off from the carriage, then hurriedly entered the medical center.
At this time, Cheng Yan-Luo had just finished classifying the herbs in her hand. She stretched out her waist and felt aches all over. She was just about to get up and go rest when she heard the sound of quick footsteps coming over. “Senior Sister, Senior Sister, someone is seriously hurt outside and came seeking medical treatment.”
The little medical student ran over with loud footsteps sounds, waking up a lot of people. Sha Feng who had just gone to sleep, hearing this, also got up.
“Where is this person?” Cheng Yan-Luo asked, opening the door to her room.
“Already asked people to carry him in.” The little medical student said while gasping for breath.
“Okay, I’ll immediately go over.” Cheng Yan-Luo turned and closed her door.
Cheng Yan-Luo had just taken a few steps when she saw Sha Feng coming over while putting on his outer clothes. “Third Junior Brother, you go back to sleep, I got this.”
“I heard that recently, several towns and cities outside had some unrest and disturbances. So late at night and people come to seek medical help, I feel somewhat uneasy. It’s best I go with you to have a look. Just in case it’s really serious, I can still help you.” Sha Feng smilingly replied.
After hearing this, Cheng Luo-Yan couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow, she smilingly said. “Third Junior Brother, are you uneasy about me or those people that came seeking medical help?”
Huh, perhaps both ah——
But Sha Feng dared not say this out loud.
Ever since the last time when First Senior brother paid a visit and he disappeared again, after Senior Sister found out about this matter, she ordered a ban, if First Senior Brother came to the doors again, then use a broom to sweep him out! Even though Senior Sister didn’t say anything else afterwards, but ever since that time, Senior Sister seemed a bit fishy. Her temper even became worse, so much so that those coming to seek medical help were scared by her cold face several times and dared not come again. Even the little junior apprentices in their sect also skirted around her. These two days however, she had somewhat recovered a bit of her original temper.
But he still didn’t feel assured.
As if having seen through Sha Feng’s thoughts, Cheng Yan-Luo only slanted him a glance. Did he really take her as a flood or a wild beast?
“Let’s go and have a look together!”
As a result, the two of them walked together toward the lobby.
Sha Feng was the first to walk out when he clearly saw the people standing in the lobby. He immediately felt they were somewhat familiar. Afterwards, he suddenly pointed at those people and in a surprised tone said. “Last time, didn’t you guys come over before?”
Once Chu Qing-Yan heard this, she subconsciously felt this wasn’t good and immediately waved her hand. “No, no, no you must have mistaken us for some other people. This is the first time we have entered your medical center.” She especially stressed the last part of the sentence.
In fact, this truly was the first time they entered the medical center. Last time, they couldn’t even enter through the door.
So what she said was the truth, absolutely didn’t say a word of lie! She was merely selective about the truth and nothing more.
Sha Feng persisted with his thoughts. “No, last time it was you guys!”
At this time, Cheng Yan-Luo walked out from behind Sha Feng and said in reproach. “They came to seek medical treatment and medicine, why are you here kicking up a fuss talking about something unrelated? Quickly go and examine to see where he is injured!”
Once Cheng Yan-Luo said this, Chu Qing-Yan felt the voice was very familiar. Deciding to look for herself at that person standing under the lantern, she saw a person dressed in white colored rough cotton clothing that couldn’t cover the brightness and splendor of this woman.
“It’s you ah, older sister doctor.” Chu Qing-Yan said, pleasantly surprised.
Last time saying goodbye at the alley, although it was somewhat hurried, but that beautiful appearance and straightforward nature, left a deep impression in her memories. Now seeing her again, she immediately recognized her at a glance.
“Oh, it’s you little sister.” Cheng Yan-Luo sized her up in one glance. Although now she cut a slightly sorrier figure than before, she still recognized her. She waved her hand at Chu Qing-Yan in what could be considered a greeting. “I’m Cheng Yan-Luo, the person in charge of this medical center.”
The beautiful female doctor she collided with at that time was now unrestrainedly calling herself the person in charge of this medical center?
She was also that Junior Sister Air Spirit couldn’t face even now?
They had worked really hard to search for her for a long time. Never expected the person they had searched among thousands was that person under the lantern’s light.
If at that time she was able to recognize her in that alley, then could her daddy’s illness have been resolved by now?
No, if it was like that, then she wouldn’t be able to meet her in this medical center and Big Block of Ice would have had no treatment.
Therefore predestined relationships will always circle back, everything will arise from many causes. It would make people sigh endlessly.
“Older Sister Yan-Luo, this is really good, my cousin is poisoned and it’s very serious. Is it possible for you to help us examine him?” Chu Qing-Yan immediately took a step forward and asked in a tone seeking her for help. In passing, she squeezed Sha Feng to the side, hoping he wouldn’t speak again to spoil things.
A pity things never turned out like one wishes, Sha Feng suspiciously swept Chu Qing-Yan’s group a glance, then said. “Senior Sister, these people are the ones I told you before that came with First Senior brother to the medical center to seek treatment and medicine. I feel they seem to have a close relationship with First Senior brother. How about you ask them about the whereabouts of First Senior Brother?”
How come this person would always mention things that shouldn’t be mentioned?
Fire Spirits and the others immediately straightened their bodies. They all entered prepared to fight mode. If this person refused to treat master’s illness, even if they violate the rule of not touching a hair on ordinary people, they would make them treat master’s illness.
Cheng Yan-Luo was just about to step forward and check the condition of Xiao Xu’s injury, but hearing this, she stopped her footsteps. Her pair of bright and benevolent eyes immediately narrowed. She turned her head to look toward Chu Qing-Yan, her tone was no longer as bright and beautiful as just now. “You know Mu Rong-Jue?”
Mu Rong-Jue? What kind of ghost was that? Never heard it, don’t know it!
Chu Qing-Yan honestly shook her head.
Cheng Yan-Luo suddenly lifted up her index finger and shook it. Her tone contained a trace of difficult to perceive resentment. “Mu Rong-Jue is his original name. The name he is using now ought to be Air Spirit.”
Chu Qing-Yan blinked her eyes and very earnestly asked. “I know Air Spirit. I also only saw him this year. My father’s body has a strange illness, but he couldn’t tell what it was and recommended that we come find you. A pity at that time you weren’t here, after he led us here, he disappeared. Even now we still can’t find him!”
“Oh?” Cheng Yan-Luo stretched out this word, directly pulling at Chu Qing-Yan’s heart until she was scared witless, afraid that she would tell them to get out the next time she spoke.
“It turned out there are illnesses that even he can’t treat. Really wasted the title of First Senior brother when he was studying under this sect. Now he has left the sect, neglecting his studies, he has really tarnished our reputation!” Cheng Yan-Luo mocked.
“His medical expertise is not as good as yours. Maybe he is too embarrassed to see people that was why he didn’t return to his master’s sect.” Chu Qing-Yan very carefully and solemnly agreed. Then she asked. “Then will Older sister Yan-Luo help examine my cousin’s injury?”
Hearing this, Cheng Yan-Luo seized up Fire Spirit and the others standing in the lobby, then scoffed to say. “Why do I have a misperception that if I don’t examine your cousin’s injury, they would set fire to my medical center? I Cheng Yan-Luo will eat everything but just won’t eat threats!”
