Chapter 279 Senior John Doe Was Here!!
“Yes,” the round-faced elderly man said with a nod. “It is him.”
Yu Ziyuan stiffened, and his expression changed.
He stood there in silence for a long while before he heaved a soft sigh and walked out of the room.
He had thought that he was a very skilled physician. Even if he wasn’t taught by a famous Chinese physician Lu Chen, he had undeniably worked as hard and as diligently as any other person. In fact, he was twice as diligent as anyone else.
He was very talented, and thus, he had become the disciple of a famous Chinese physician. He was also willing to put in the effort, which was also why he was such a skilled physician.
However, he had never imagined that he would meet someone who was even more talented and more outstanding than he was.
“I will have to work even harder from now on,” he vowed.
Yu Ziyuan returned to his room and continued to see his patients.
On the other hand, Fang Qiu poured out his final medicinal tonic and gave it to his patient to consume.
After he finished his tasks, he looked at the clock and noticed that it was already 4:40 PM.
“I’m just in time,” he heaved a secret sigh of relief.
He walked out of the room and was about to leave when he saw the middle-aged man heading down the stairs.
It was clear that the middle-aged man had already known that Fang Qiu had finished his tasks.
“I’ve finished the examination, right?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Yes,” the middle-aged man nodded with a smile.
“May I leave now?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Of course you may,” the middle-aged man nodded and said, “the outcome of the examination has not been determined yet. However, we will require all 25 patients you’ve seen today to continue taking your medicine and will monitor the effects of the prescription that you had given them. Hence, we will only know the results of the examination in a week.”
“Very well,” Fang Qiu said with a nod. “Many thanks.”
The middle-aged man nodded with a smile.
Fang Qiu rushed out of the Association of Chinese Physicians eagerly.
He quickly flagged down a passing taxi and made his way back to school.
It was 5 PM when he arrived back at school, and it was also when the school canteen opened.
Fang Qiu quickly grabbed a bite since there weren’t that many people at the canteen. Then, he greeted his three roommates before he changed into his mysterious man costume and sneaked out of school.
This time, he did not hail a taxi because he was extremely familiar with the route.
He ran out of the city and through the unkempt forest as he quickly charged toward Elder Yi’s manor.
It was already 6:30 PM.
At Elder Yi’s manor located on the outskirts of the city.
A large crowd had already gathered around the strength tester.
“I’ve noticed that quite a few experts have not visited recently.”
“I’m pretty sure that Senior John Doe was the reason why they visited in the first place. Naturally, they stopped coming after paying several visits and failing to see him here.”
“Yes, it has been two months since Senior John Doe had visited. No one knows what he’s been up to for he suddenly disappeared without a trace, as though he had vanished completely.”
“I’m sure he has gone to attend to an important matter.”
“He hasn’t been seen in a while, but he has left behind a famous legacy.”
“It is rumored that He Gaoming had also experienced a breakthrough last week.”
“Is that so?”
“Does that mean that whoever Senior John Doe had personally guided has experienced a breakthrough?”
“Is he truly that amazing?”
“Is the mysterious Senior John Doe as incredible as the rumors make him out to be?”
“That’s not all. I’ve heard that those who were personally guided by or who had trained in accordance to his methods are almost about to experience a breakthrough.”
Everyone present was completely stunned.
Was it really true that those who had received guidance from Senior John Doe weren’t the only ones who were about to experience a breakthrough, but those who had trained in accordance with his methods were also experiencing the same?
How was that even possible?
If Senior John Doe was as incredible as the rumors made him out to be, wouldn’t he be able to train a martial superior level expert at a drop of a hat?
They shuddered at the mere thought of it.
“I wonder if Senior John Doe would come.”
“In any case, I’ve decided to attend every gathering in the future since I’ll be able to use this opportunity to train and also quickly mature thanks to my fellow martial artists. More importantly, if I run into Senior John Doe when he’s in a good mood, I might even have the chance to receive personal guidance from him. I’ll visit this place for the next five, or even ten years as long as I’m able to receive personal guidance from him. It is a fantastic deal!”
“That’s right. An encounter with Senior John Doe is like winning the lottery for those of us who haven’t got the family background and don’t know how to increase our strength. It wouldn’t be a great loss for us even if we don’t see him, but if we do, we would reap incredible rewards.”
They gathered around the strength tester and had an animated discussion about Senior John Doe.
Once in a while, there were a few people who would step up to the strength tester to test their strength.
Time flew by.
Soon, it was 7 PM.
As everyone’s voices grew more animated and the atmosphere became livelier, suddenly, something could be heard ripping through the air.
No one paid any attention to the noise.
The next moment, there was a loud crashing sound.
Everyone jumped and they turned to see a black figure heading down from the strength tester. This black figure then made his way toward the gates of the manor.
“Who is that?”
“I’m not sure. Dusk is about to fall and yet, he’s completely dressed in black. He’s such an interesting figure.”
“Am I the only person who thinks that he looks familiar?”
“Hmm, he looks like…”
“Could it be…?”
Everyone chattered animatedly as they turned to look at the strength tester.
Then, they saw the number flashing in red on the strength tester. 3000!
Everyone was completely astonished when they saw this number.
3,000 kilograms. How strong was that person?
He could probably smash a rock with his bare hands, right?
The black figure had already walked past the gates of the manor as everyone else gaped in shock.
“It is John Doe!”
“He’s Senior John Doe!”
“Was that really him?”
“He’s here! He’s really here!”
“Get out of my way. I’ll need to test my strength to enter the manor as well.”
“I’ll go first.”
“Wait, let me go first.”
All the martial artists present were shocked and created a huge commotion after they realized that the mysterious man was Senior John Doe.
Everyone rushed toward the strength tester as though they were possessed. This was a stark contrast to the earlier scene when everyone had been chattering idly.
They wanted to pass through the test posed by the strength tester and enter the manor to see Senior John Doe for themselves.
Everyone fought intensely for a chance to use the strength tester in order to gain entry to the manor.
Everyone else within the manor could hear the commotion outside.
They all turned to look at the gates of the manor in unison.
They jumped to their feet in shock when they saw who was the latest arrival.
They saw a black figure appear in front of them.
The black figure wore a tracksuit and a mask.
It was him.
The mysterious man, John Doe!
Fang Qiu’s appearance caused shock ripples to run through the manor.
The martial artists who gathered around the arena in the garden all turned to look at Fang Qiu.
The employees of the manor immediately called Elder Yi to alert him to Fang Qiu’s appearance.
They had waited two months for Fang Qiu to return, and Elder Yi had already lost faith that Fang Qiu would return, so he had instructed his men to call him the moment Fang Qiu returned.
Frankly, Elder Yi had already given up hope that the mysterious man would return.
He was surprised that the mysterious man had truly returned today.
He was back!
Elder Yi was so excited because after the match with the mysterious man the previous time, and after training in accordance with the methods that the mysterious man had imparted him, he had made a quick recovery, and he sensed that he was on the verge of a breakthrough.
Elder Yi was astonished.
He was even more in awe of the mysterious man.
Fang Qiu entered the garden.
The martial artists who had arrived before him quickly retreated and created a path for him to pass.
In the meantime, Elder Yi rushed out from a loft deep within the manor and made his way to the garden.
At the arena.
“Senior John Doe.”
“Senior, please give me some guidance.”
“Senior John Doe, do you mind giving me some words of wisdom?”
Fang Qiu had just approached at the round table by the side of the arena and was about to take his seat when he found himself completely surrounded by a large crowd of martial artists.
Everyone was fighting for the chance to receive personal guidance from Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu was at a complete loss.
Fortunately, Elder Yi arrived on the scene.
Elder Yi immediately dispersed the crowd when he saw that Senior John Doe was completely surrounded by eager martial artists.
“Senior, I’ve waited a long while for you to come back,” Elder Yi said with a wry smile after he dispersed the crowd.
“Both me and my fellow martial artists have been eagerly awaiting your arrival for the past two months after what you said previously.”
“Did I promise that I’ll return?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Uh… you said that you’d return?” Elder Yi said.
“My exact words were, ‘it would depend on my mood’,” Fang Qiu said with a smile. “I’m in a good mood today.”
Elder Yi laughed awkwardly before he said, “Regardless, all that waiting hadn’t been in vain now that you’ve returned. Are you here to observe the matches, or do you want to fight in the ring today?”
“I’d be letting everyone down if I stood by and watched idly,” Fang Qiu said as he pursed his lips. “I’ll fight everyone who has signed up today!”
At the moment, Fang Qiu was going to exchange blows with martial artists of different levels and strengths.
The old master said that he lacked experience in real battles, so Fang Qiu had decided that since he needed to experience what a true fight was like, he would start from the very bottom to build up his foundation and slowly work his way up.
Everyone was elated by his words.
Elder Yi’s eyes lit up joyfully.
“Is it too late to sign up now? I want to sign up!”
“Elder Yi, is it still possible for me to sign up?”
Everyone gathered around Elder Yi and asked.
“Please calm down,” Elder Yi quickly gestured for everyone to remain silent with a wave of his hand. Then, he turned to Fang Qiu and asked, “How many people do you intend to fight today?”
“As many as I can!” Fang Qiu said.
“Oh?” Elder Yi froze in shock.
Then, he said, “Since you’re such a willing participant, I’ll accept everyone’s registrations!”
The crowd cheered and rushed toward the registration counter to sign up.
“I have another question,” Elder Yi said with a smile after everyone had rushed to the registration counter, “are you the mysterious man who went viral online?”
