Chapter 309 Smile Froze
At the age of teenage rebellion, some children would always treat the kids from other families like the ones to vent their anger and jealousy.
There was no doubt that Fang Qiu was the one that other kids would dislike.
Having been diagnosed by Fang Qiu, the neighbors went home and couldn’t stop praising him. Meanwhile, they started to blame their own children for they were not as excellent as Fang Qiu.
As a result, these kids of the neighbors were filled with anger and frustration.
Some of them even claimed that they needed to teach Fang Qiu a lesson to vent their anger.
Therefore, a number of people began to inquire about Fang Qiu.
However, they were dumbfounded when they found out who he was.
Fang Qiu was a student from University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
Based on the positive information, many of them were reminded of the man who won the Feeling Pulse Challenge and became so popular on the Internet.
The man called Fang Qiu also studied in the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
Searching for more information, they found that there was only one student named Fang Qiu in the UJCM, which meant their neighbor’s kid was the one.
Upon hearing the news, all the children in the neighborhood were shocked.
“No wonder he’s so good in medicine. It’s Fang Qiu!”
“It’s sad that I don’t know him as a neighbor.”
“I didn’t expect that such a talent actually lived in this small county!”
After discussing with each other, they told their parents about the information of Fang Qiu, especially emphasizing the Feeling Pulse Challenge to show them that Fang Qiu was an outstanding talent who couldn’t be competed with ordinary people like them.
Those parents were stunned when they heard that.
Many of them were confused about Fang Qiu’s skills in the first place, wondering that he was just a normal student who had just learned something about the Chinese medicine.
They didn’t know that Fang Qiu was such a talented figure.
He had already gained popularity among all over the country, not to mention this small town.
Obviously, from the performance of Fang Qiu these days, he really excelled at practicing medicine.
Suddenly, all the parents of the neighborhood stopped blaming their children. Instead, they were trying to figure out how to get closer to Fang Qiu. It would be easier for them to see a doctor if they improved their relationship with Fang Qiu’s family.
The next day, before Fang Qiu got up from bed, several people had already come to his house with breakfast, insisting that they wanted to have breakfast with Fang Qiu and his parents.
As a result, a dozen people were having breakfast in Fang Qiu’s house.
At lunchtime, more people came to the house, carrying their meals.
Due to plenty of people in the house, a normal meal unexpectedly turned into a huge spread. People who came to the house didn’t only bring the food there, but also helped to cook, showing their strength in cooking, which made Fang Qiu feel helpless.
Fang Qiu’s mother was speechless, too.
It would be a complete waste if they came to their home every day. Although lots of people came, they were not able to finish all the food they brought.
After the meal, Fang Qiu’s mother persuaded them not to bring breakfast and other food to their house.
Just as she was talking to those people, more neighbors came to their house.
Every few minutes, someone came in with a gift in hand.
They sent various kinds of gifts, including fruits, drinks, health products, facial masks, cosmetics, even clothes, earrings and so on.
Fang Qiu’s mother had to get up from the chair continuously to greet those guests. She kept declining their gifts, but the guests wouldn’t let her. They just pushed the gifts into her hands.
Under this circumstance, Fang Qiu’s mother’s smile froze on her lips.
Of course, she didn’t smile because she was happy. Actually, she was helpless and could only force a smile to the guests.
She thought it was all her fault.
None of this would have happened if she hadn’t constantly bragged about her son to the neighbors.
For the next ten days, Fang Qiu regularly gave acupuncture to the kid every day.
After each acupuncture treatment, the child’s illness would be much better.
Ten days later, the full course of treatment was completed.
Under Fang Qiu’s treatment, the kid who was seriously ill and had been lying in the bed for a whole year could finally walk.
He was completely cured!
As soon as the news spread, it caused a stir in the whole town.
Linxi County was not a big place. Everyone had been living here for a long time, so they knew almost everyone lived in their neighborhood. Therefore, the news of that woman and her child had been spread all over the county.
Everyone thought what happened to the kid and his mother was so tragic.
To everyone’s surprise, the child who seemed incurable actually was saved by Fang Qiu.
It was a shock to everyone.
Meanwhile, Fang Qiu’s medical skills became the topic of people’s conversation.
As Fang Qiu became well-known in the county, more and more people came to Fang Qiu’s house to ask him to treat them.
Even people who lived a few blocks away in other towns and villages specifically came to seek medical treatment from Fang Qiu.
All of a sudden, Fang Qiu’s house was filled with plenty of people.
Anyone who didn’t know the fact would figure that it was a new hospital in the county.
What was more, apart from the patients who came to the house, some people even paid a large amount of money to invite Fang Qiu to go to their houses to diagnosis.
However, Fang Qiu didn’t have time to spare.
He treated every patient equally. The joy and satisfaction of saving people would always overwhelm the temptation of money.
Fang Qiu had been seeing patients at home for the next few days.
In the case of constantly offering medical treatment, his medical skills were also improving.
Many patients would come to Fang Qiu from time to time and told him how they felt after taking the medicine Fang Qiu prescribed to them, which could make him know whether he made the right prescriptions. If the medicine were suitable for the patient, he would ponder whether he needed to do some changes to make it better. If the patients didn’t get better after taking medicine, he would find the other way to help them.
It was like extra training for Fang Qiu.
He felt that the improvement he gained from this experience was better than what he gained in Qimen Town.
Gradually, Fang Qiu got used to treating patients every day after he got up.
He didn’t stop until the day of New Year’s Eve.
His family could only try their best to spare some time to do the Spring Festival shopping.
On New Year’s Eve, it began to snow, which made people of the whole county happy.
As the saying goes, timely snow promises a good harvest.
In the evening, Fang Qiu finally got some time to rest. After taking a hot bath, he enjoyed a reunion dinner with his parents while watching the Spring Festival Gala together.
At 12:00 p.m., with the countdown of the Spring Festival Gala, Fang Qiu standing in the doorway lit the firecracker on time.
Hearing the sound of firecrackers which heralded driving the evil things away, the whole family laughed with joy.
Then, Fang Qiu’s parents continued to watch television.
Fang Qiu went back to his bedroom and began to text to people he knew on Wechat. Every blessing message he sent was different.
Instead of using the same message, Fang Qiu thought sending different blessing messages to people could show his respect and how much the person meant to him.
When he finished, Fang Qiu immediately made a call to Jiang Miaoyu.
“Happy New Year.” As soon as he got through, the blessing of Jiang Miaoyu was heard.
“Happy New Year.” Fang Qiu asked with a smile, “have you finished your dinner?”
“Yeah, and now I’m lying on the bed,” Jiang Miaoyu replied.
“Sleep after eating?” Fang Qiu grinned and teased her, “that sounds like some kind of animal.”
“You’re animal,” Jiang Miaoyu immediately refuted, “I’m a Chinese medicine doctor.”
“Ha-ha, is it snowing there?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Yeah, but it’s not heavy.” Jiang Miaoyu suddenly rolled her eyes and thought of something. “Anyone come to visit you today?”
“No.” Fang Qiu shook his head.
“Then you’re done,” Jiang Miaoyu said, “You’d better run out to hide on the New Year’s Day.”
“Why?” Fang Qiu asked.
Jiang Miaoyu said, “You are so famous in your county now. You’ve spent the whole holiday treating patients for free. People will think you’re kind-hearted for not charging them. Since the New Year is coming, those who are indebted to you will definitely come to visit and show their gratitude to you. Otherwise, they might worry that you won’t help them in the future.”
While Fang Qiu was seeing patients these days, they talked on the phone a lot.
Since they were in a relationship, it would never be enough to just have one call a day.
Therefore, Jiang Miaoyu certainly knew what he was doing during the vacation.
“Well, you’re right.” Fang Qiu put on a wry smile.
They chatted for a long time before hanging up.
“Dee, dee, dee…”
But just as Fang Qiu got off the phone, the mobile phone which he threw on the bed suddenly rang again.
“Hmm?” He picked up the phone and looked at it. That was Jiang Mengjie.
“Hello?” He picked up the phone.
“Happy New Year.” Jiang Mengjie’s voice came from the other side.
“Happy New Year,” Fang Qiu replied with a smile.
And then, there was a moment of silence.
Jiang Mengjie picked up the conversation again and talked with him before hanging up.
On the TV in the living room, the Spring Festival Gala had already played the song “Unforgettable Tonight”.
Listening to music coming from the living room, Fang Qiu put his phone under his pillow, comfortably lay on his bed, and watched the snow falling heavily outside.
“The new year is coming.”
On the day of Chinese Lunar New Year, people had already come to his home before Fang Qiu got up.
Fang Qiu could hear the voices in the living room clearly because his bedroom was on the first floor.
He was about to greet the guests, only to find that more and more people came to visit and soon the living room was full of people.
At this rate, they wouldn’t even have a space to stand in two hours.
Thinking of this, Fang Qiu changed his mind.
He opened the window of his room and sneaked out to hang out with his friends.
It was the first floor, which was not high at all. Therefore, it wouldn’t cause his parents to worry.
On the second day of Lunar New Year, it was time to contact and visit relatives. Therefore, forced by his parents, Fang Qiu drove the car to visit their relatives.
Driving out of the county, they arrived at a mountainous region. The road was blocked.
Just as Fang Qiu was about to get off the car to ask what happened, a roar of the engine was heard suddenly.
