Chapter 655 – Crafty plots and machinations (6)
She glanced back and unbelievingly saw Apothecary Leng step over the doorstep. Only after quite a while did her senses returned and she quickly went up to welcome him: “Apothecary Leng, you have finally come!”
Madam Su’s face trembled slightly, but in Su Zian’s eyes, he felt it was because she was too happy and moved.
Apothecary Leng’s pair of apathetic cold eyes that lacked any warmth, swept a glance at Madam Su and carelessly said: “Where is the patient?”
According to Luo girl’s words, this patient seemed very interesting. He must carefully study him.
“In here, please enter, Apothecary Leng.” Su Zian hurriedly led Apothecary Leng towards the front of Su Jingyu’s bed.
“Eh.” Apothecary Leng sat upright on the bedside, meticulously and carefully examined Su Jingyu.
On the side, Madam Su’s complexion was somewhat complex.
She stealthily pulled at Su Zian’s robe: “My lord, is this really…..” Apothecary Leng?
“Absolutely true, you can cheat neither the old nor young about this.” Su Zian vouched for him and guaranteed, “In the past, His Majesty had invited him for an examination. I was standing on the side, that’s why I recognize him.”
“How…how was it that in such a short time, how were you able to invite him?” This deep in the night, even if you went to ask for an imperial edict, no matter what, it would still have to wait until tomorrow morning, right?
Mentioning this, Su Zian was unable to suppress the ecstasy in his heart. He lowered his voice and explained the entire matter again. In the end, he said: “Madam, you would never have imagined it, right? Apothecary Leng unexpectedly regarded Xi’er this well. Before all this, if someone had said this to me, I would definitely not believe them. However, this is the truth! You don’t have to worry about Jingyu’s wounds anymore, with Apothecary Leng here, I guarantee there will be no problems.”
Madam Su gripped her handkerchief tightly, a trace of confusion flashing through her eyes.
She clearly secretly told Su Xi to pretend to plead, don’t need to be too sincere, but…….how were they able to invite Apothecary Leng over?
Also, how could Su Xi be chosen by Apothecary Leng?
Madam Su was simply perplexed even after pondering for hundreds of times.
Only after Apothecary Leng muttered to himself for a long time did he slowly open his eyes.
Su Zian quickly went up, apprehensively asking: “Apothecary Leng, my son….”
Apothecary Leng’s complexion was solemn, stroking his beard for a long while, not speaking.
Su Zian stood in front of him on tenterhooks, his expression remaining nervous and deeply worried. His pair of eyes unwaveringly stared at Apothecary Leng.
Apothecary Leng frowned and said: “How did your son receive his injury?”
Su Zian explained in detail: “Today, he returned home from school. En route he was ambushed with attacks from all sides by many people. He was beaten to the extent that his five bowels and six viscera almost shifted positions…..”
At this moment, Madam Su’s complexion became pale, her pair of eyes staring rigidly at Apothecary Leng. Her eyes shone with a complicated light.
Su Zian finished speaking with great difficulty, afterwards, he determinedly looked towards Apothecary Leng.
“Re…..” Apothecary Leng wasn’t able to finish speaking the word ‘fart’, after recalling Su Luo’s words, only then was he able to restrain himself. Indignantly flinging his sleeves, he rigidly changed the words to: “Rest assured (1), this apothecary has a way. ”
Since he had a way, why did Apothecary Leng look so furious, as if he was made a fool of? Su Zian was extremely puzzled.
Only now did the hands that Madam Su use to grip the handkerchief tightly, then quietly loosen. The cold sweat on her forehead slowly slid down.
Apothecary Leng, not batting an eyelid, swept Madam Su a glance. Madam Su suddenly felt her back become cold and her entire body become stiff.
When she carefully looked again, Apothecary Leng’s gaze had already swept by, his complexion was icily arrogant like an ice crystal. One could not see anything fishy from his expression.
Madam Su’s heart was nervous, so her eyes didn’t dare to look all around. She could only hang her head and remained silent.
Apothecary Leng used acupuncture to push out the clotted blood inside Su Jingyu’s body. Afterwards, he took out three pills of one kind of medicine and handed them over to Su Zian: “One piece everyday, remember, you must personally feed it to him.”
1) 放: The Chinese by itself means release….together with the word 屁 we get the Chinese curse of releasing fart or to say it nicely ‘what nonsense’. 放心 : Is the Chinese for rest your heart…or feel reassured. Since the two phrases started with the same Chinese word, Apothecary Leng was able to get away with a switching a curse phrase for an reassurance phrase.
Misunderstandings, the no.1 thing that I love in Chinese Web Novels. Lol
sigh how tiresome, isn’t Su Zian tired of misunderstanding things?
Oh, is the injury perhaps caused by Madam Su? Seriously? Did she feed him some kind of ‘faking illness pill?”
no lol it was retaliation from the jade lake fairy bitch (the Li familly)
I second Zeu’s opinion..
It was kind of obvious throughout the chapter that Madam Su actually didn’t want Apothecary Leng to come, lest her farce is exposed..
In other words, Su Jingyu wasn’t beaten to near death; his injuries were delibarately caused by some other means, by someone other than the Li family… For example Madam Su, most likely in order to place the blame on Su Luo..
‘SCUSE ME FOR THE CAPS, BUT CAN THE SU FAMILY BE A LITTLE LESS STUPID. IF THEY HAD EVEN A HUNDRETH OF SU LUO’S INTELLEGENCE, THEY WOULD BE SET FOR LIFE.
INSTEAD, THEY DARE PRETEND TO BE CUNNING AND ARE IDIOTICALLY TRYING TO GO AGAINST SU LUO. IF THEY COULD JUST TAKE A STEP BACK AND ACTUALLY RECOGNIZE HER FOR WHO SHE TRULY IS, THEN THEY WOULDN’T HAVE ALL THESE TROUBLES.
JUST, AAAAAGGGGGGHH, TAKING MY FRUSTRATIONS OUT IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!
okay tantrum over, please ignore what i just said, and be on your merry way.
okay this misunderstand just makes me want to stab them
So true. How can this family be so stupid- except for Su Luo of course!! It’s just weird that so many people can be dumb at once. XD
welp birds of the same feather would flock together, as for SL, she’s not blood related to them remember?
How can a group of people be so dumb at once?? It’s ridiculous and they should really just understand the awesomeness of Su Luo! There totally missing out on a great opportunity And by sitting there and trying to be smart are actually just getting ridiculed and looking really dumb. They won’t survive for very much longer I don’t think. XD
Now we can all see she is definitely NOT part of this family. Thankfully none of them are blood related to her.
I can already see that Madam Su is probably part of the scheme to force SL hand.
Thank you For the chapter! I do miss two chapters a day 😀
coming next month…starting September 1 (two days away)
Is this part of Madam Su’s plan to bring Su Luo down? If it is. Isn’t she too heartless to do this to her son?!!! Thankfully Su Luo is not blood related to them!! Good gracious!!
Madam us is acting way too suspicious..I wonder what will come to light this time👀
HA. HA. HA. I wonder what pills are that.
Thanks for the chapter.
Seem likes, there’s something a bit fishy behind this injure and Madam Su, hehe i’m curious
Interesting. And odd.
When Old Leng was told how he was attacked, he almost said “fart”, but another possible translation is “bullshit”.
Could this mean that his injury was from some other cause covered up by the beating?
Maybe I’m paranoid, but “Personally feed it to him” sets off warning bells in my head. Of the poisonous kind.
Don’t forget Su Xi was asked to fake begging for Apothecary Leng…he was not suppose to be here
So weird, why is he suddenly angry ? Is it because the case isn’t as interesting as Su luo told him it would be ?
The correct question should be was he injured to begin with?
Typo report: “his five vowels and six visceras almost shifted positions” bowels/organs? And possibly the other way around, five viscera and six bowels?
Thanks for the chapter.
But, I liked the idea of his vowels being out of whack. Us Ajing
So the 5 vowels are still in the correct order a,e,i,o,u? 😛
thanks a lot!
oh? su luo has hatched a plan involving apothecary leng….hm…!
he clearly is able to tell that there is something fishy going on!
SL… SL… can you just claim your achievements and stoop being treated like trash SL..? it almost made me spit out blood.
Thanks for the chapter!
