Chapter 171 Time Out! Not Arrived?
Fang Qiu’s been poisoned had spread to the leaders and students in the other eight schools immediately.
Hearing the news.
Everyone was shocked at first, but then they felt extremely excited.
Fang Qiu was the great force of UJCM!
He was poisoned?!
If he could not participate in the competition tomorrow because of this, UJCM would have a tough time.
Because UJCM would only be a toothless tiger without Fang Qiu. Its battle force would be shortened by half or even less!
Therefore, the leaders of every school were praying that Fang Qiu would not attend tomorrow’s game.
In this way, their schools could stand out in the personal competition.
Instead of chasing after UJCM!
At the same time, they were also very curious which angel did it?
They were grateful to whoever did such great favor to their schools.
Unlike the people who were excited, Jiang Mengjie felt anxious the moment she heard the news from her classmates. She was worried about Fang Qiu’s situation.
She wanted to find Fang Qiu immediately, but it was already late, and school leaders would not let them leave the hotel.
Afraid to disturb Fang Qiu’s resting, she dared not to call him.
All she could do was wandering about in her room.
But her heart could not calm down anyway.
Oh, Jiang Miaoyu!
Jiang Mengjie suddenly stopped walking, and her eyes suddenly lit up. She could give Jiang Miaoyu a call! Also in UJCM, Jiang Miaoyu should know how Fang Qiu was.
She hurriedly took out the phone and called Jiang Miaoyu.
Jiang Miaoyu answered the phone.
“Miaoyu, I heard Fang Qiu was poisoned. Exactly how is he doing now? Is he all right?”
Jiang Mengjie asked hastily.
“The situation is a little bit bad.”
Jiang Miaoyu said in a low voice, “Someone we don’t know yet put poison in Fang Qiu’s dinner, and it was a very fierce kind of poison. Although Fang Qiu’s teacher came and treated him, it will take some time for him to heal.”
“How does he feel now?”
Asked Jiang Mengjie.
“He’s in great pain.”
Jiang Miaoyu took a deep breath, and said in a worried tone, “I saw his face was pale because of the pain, and he sweated a lot.”
“He was that sick?”
Jiang Mengjie said with worry and anxiety.
“He will be better after tonight.”
Jiang Miaoyu said, “He should go to the competition tomorrow. You can see him then. He should have rested by now.”
Jiang Mengjie nodded and hung up.
However, she could not help but feel more panicked.
“Fang, you must be alright!”
In the school.
“Fang Qiu was food poisoned?!”
As the president of the student union of the School of Chinese Medicine, Li Qingshi also heard the news of Fang Qiu at once and was shocked.
He had thought of putting some drugs in Fang Qiu’s food that would let Fang Qiu have diarrhea, but he didn’t do it because he thought it’s meaningless.
Today, seeing that Fang Qiu led UJCM to gain such good results, he was also glad that he was not being so evil.
How could he don’t admire Fang Qiu?
But he had no idea that he would hear the news that Fang Qiu was poisoned.
“Who did it?”
Li Qingshi frowned and said.
While just after he murmured, suddenly, a man came to his mind. His face suddenly changed, and he said incredulously, “Impossible. It can’t be him. Fang Qiu is so important to UJCM now! It can’t be him!”
This night, many people did not sleep well.
Because of tomorrow’s contest, and also because Fang Qiu’s being food poisoned.
Five o’clock in the morning.
A tide of tremendous severe pain in the belly woke Fang Qiu up.
Fang Qiu stood up immediately and covered his abdomen. He breathed deeply to reduce the pain.
This was also the first time that he didn’t get up to exercise on time.
This poison was too insidious. He spent a whole night in the bathroom because of diarrhea, but it was not cleaned.
Bearing the pain.
Fang Qiu checked the time.
Five to seven in the morning was exactly the time of day when the large intestine worked.
No wonder he felt painful.
Fang Qiu immediately went off the bed to the bathroom.
However, the sharp pain from the underbelly didn’t reduce when he came back.
After all, there were too many toxins in his body. Although traditional Chinese medicine could help detoxify the body, it could not remove all the toxins in a short time.
It was also difficult for Internal Qi to achieve such a thing.
He could just take it slow.
Fang Qiu took a deep breath, continued to lie on the bed, and continued to try to use internal Qi for detoxification.
Zhu Benzheng, Sun Hao and Zhou Xiaotian also got up from the bed. They did not want to get up so early, but they had already been used to the biological clock that Fang Qiu would wake them up at five every day. They could not fall asleep again after that even if they wanted.
Zhu Benzheng looked at Fang Qiu. He didn’t care to wash up himself, and directly ran to the canteen to get some porridge for Fang Qiu to drink
Sun Hao and Zhou Xiaoyian ran to the temporary canteen to fetch Fang Qiu’s medicine.
The students of UJCM also got up every early in the weekend. They all came to the ladder meeting room to take up seats.
The personal competition, also the fina, was going to be held that day. They would not able to grab a sit if they were late.
Sun Hao and Zhou Xiaotian were carrying the cooked medicine back from the temporary canteen. They were astonished when they saw the long line in front of the meeting room.
It was so early and yet there were many people there.
Think of Fang Qiu’e being food poisoned, the two people sighed with regret unceasingly and carried the medicine quickly to the dormitory.
At half-past eight in the morning.
The auditorium was full of people when the door opened.
The students of other schools all came over to watch the final competition, so the place was more crowded than before.
The scene was full of excitement and anticipation for today’s game.
People in UJCM hoped to continue to see Fang Qiu’s extraordinary performance today.
But they didn’t know that the people they wanted to see were already poisoned by food.
On the stage.
Those nine long tables were already gone.
Instead, there were eighty-one seats in total.
There was a question board on every seat.
As time went toward 9 am, the students of the eight schools were all here on time.
Seven students from the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine also came to the scene.
When Jiang Mengjie arrived at the scene, she looked at UJCM but did not see Fang Qiu, so she doubtfully looked at Jiang Miaoyu.
Jiang Miaoyu shook her head worriedly, and she did not know how Fang Qiu was doing at this moment.
In the entire conference room, the leaders were all there, and only the two lonely seats on the stage were empty.
Fang Qiu and Zhu Benzheng had not appeared.
Time was passing by.
Under the stage, the students of University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine could not help but start talking about it.
“Where is Fang Qiu?”
It’s going to be nine o’clock now. Why does Fang Qiu not come?
“Anything unexpected happened to him?”
“Don’t speak that!”
“If Fang Qiu does not come, we might lose the competition this time.”
“Yes, our team has always relied on him. Without him, it’s hard for us to win this round of personal warfare.”
Students from other schools were also whispering to each other.
“Does Fang Qiu not come?”
“It’s great if he won’t come. This is the opportunity for our school to win this round.”
“Well, they just took some advantages in the first two rounds. Even if he comes, whether he could be the first is still uncertain.”
“Whatever, that Fang Qiu doesn’t come is the best for our team.”
“Yes, hope that the time could be going faster!”
The sound of the audience’s discussion was racketing here and there.
On the stage, all the people who heard the news yesterday were waiting curiously to see if Fang Qiu would appear in time.
A strange scene appeared in the entire conference room.
The audience was very lively, but those who were on the stage were so silent.
It was 8:57 am.
Fang Qiu was still absent.
Everyone was getting anxious.
Did Fang Qiu really not come?
Jiang Mengjie and Jiang Miaoyu were even more worried than others. If Fang Qiu didn’t show up, it meant that Fang Qiu was seriously ill.
In this case, how could they be calm to compete with others?
“Will Fang Qiu come to join this game?”
Where the leaders sat, Chen Yinsheng frowned and asked Qi Kaiwen who sat next to him.
Qi Kaiwen shook his head and said in anxiety, “I don’t know, either. The medicine has been taken away to him in the morning, so I think he would come.”
It was 8:59 am.
The host came to the stage.
People who came from UJCM were somewhat awkward.
There was only one minute left.
If Fang Qiu didn’t show up on time, it would be considered that he gave up.
Did Fang Qiu really give up?
Did he really not come?
Just as the students from University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine lost their minds, they suddenly saw two figures coming in from the side door of the lecture hall.
They were Fang Qiu and Zhu Benzheng.
“Sorry for having you all wait for us.”
Without Zhu Benzheng’s help, Fang Qiu lightly handcuffed on his lower abdomen with a pale face, and he endured severe pain. He said to the host and walked to his seat meanwhile.
Zhu Benzheng was closely following him.
With the appearance of the two, all from UJCM suddenly sighed with relief.
Fortunately, they were not late.
But when they saw Fang Qiu’s pale face, they were suddenly stunned.
Their presence should have aroused the warm cheers from the audience, but now they couldn’t make it.
“What happened to Fang Qiu?”
“Why doesn’t he look well?”
“Did something go wrong?”
“Fang Qiu was really food-poisoned!”
The students, from different schools on the stage, immediately said to themselves after seeing Fangqiu. Some of them felt sorry about it, while some felt lucky.
In the camp of Jingbei University of Chinese Medicine.
Jiang Mengjie looked at Fang Qiu and bit her lips gently. The worry in her eyes was revealed without any cover.
Fang Qiu noticed the gaze that Jiang Mengjie had cast to.
Fang Qiu raised his pale face, slightly smiled at Jiang Mengjie, and signaled her to relieve.
At this moment, the host went to the stage and announced, “Good morning, Leaders and every student here.
“It’s nine o’clock now.
“The third round of the Freshmen Knowledge Competition for the nine University of Chinese Medicine personal warfare starts now!
“Personal warfare, the rule of the first round: raise up the board to answer.”
“This round is 81 to 40, and the elimination rate is higher than 50%. Once your answer is wrong, you are out directly.”
The host announced.
The crowd was amazed by the rules.
This was just the first round, but more than half of the participants would be eliminated?
And as long as one gave a wrong answer, he or she would be eliminated directly.
This rule was too strict!
After the amazement, everyone became looking forward to it.
This was exciting enough!
“No more to say, the game will start now.”
The host started to show the question directly.
Fang Qiu sat on the stool, holding the answer sheet in one hand, and licking his lower abdomen with the other hand. Only a few minutes passed, but his forehead was covered with a layer of sweat.
The colicky pain in his lower abdomen was getting worse.
In order to answer questions, he could only release his right hand, which had been covering his abdomen, and turned the answer board upside down with his left hand, pressed the lower edge of the answer board tightly on his abdomen, and held the pen in his right hand to answer the question.
Seeing Fang Qiu’s acts, Jiang Miaoyu was deeply distressed.
“The first question…”
The host continued reading the question.
The question was finished.
Eighty-one people on the stage were writing hard.
Five seconds later.
“The time is up. Please show your answer board.”
As the host’s voice vanished, everyone raised the answer board, only Fang Qiu put his board in front of him.
