Chapter 322 Murderous Looks!
He walked out of campus, bought a single stalk of rose from the commercial district near the campus before heading to the train station.
After he arrived at the train station, he stood at the gentry and waited.
He didn’t wait long before he spotted Jiang Miaoyu walking out with her luggage in tow.
He immediately ran up to her and wrapped his arms around her.
Jiang Miaoyu immediately blushed furiously which made her look even more adorable.
“That’s enough. There are so many people watching us,” Jiang Miaoyu whispered even as she returned the hug.
“Haha,” Fang Qiu chuckled. After he let her go, he handed her the stalk of rose and said. “Welcome home. I’ve missed you so much during the time that you were away.”
Jiang Miaoyu immediately accepted his flower and smiled happily.
“Alright,” Fang Qiu said as he took her luggage and offered his arm to her. “Let’s go.”
Jiang Miaoyu took his arm without hesitation and stuck close to him as they walked out of the train station happily.
“Oh yes, when did you master acupuncture?” She asked.
“Who did you hear this from?” Fang Qiu asked in confusion because he hadn’t told anyone about this.
“Answer my question first,” Jiang Miaoyu said.
“Uh, I just learned it,” Fang Qiu replied.
“Oh?” Jiang Miaoyu’s eyes lit up and she tilted her head up proudly as she said, “I guess you’ll have to learn from me in the future. I’m the descendant of a family of accomplished acupuncturists.”
“Amazing,” Fang Qiu said with a smile.
“Will you learn under my tutelage or not?” Jiang Miaoyu asked.
“Yes, of course,” Fang Qiu said with a laugh. “I promise to be a good student.”
“Then, you’ll have to treat me well,” Jiang Miaoyu said with a smile.
“Do you still have to tell me that?” Fang Qiu replied. “I’ll definitely treat you so well that you won’t be able to find any fault in me.”
Jiang Miaoyu’s smile grew even brighter at his words.
They left the train station, hailed a taxi, and returned to campus.
They attracted a lot of attention the moment they arrived back at campus.
“Our campus belle is dating Fang Qiu!”
This piece of breaking news spread like wildfire across the entire university campus the moment they arrived back to the campus.
Those who had returned back to school happily after the new year holidays were dumbfounded, especially when they heard about how Jiang Miaoyu was carrying a stalk of rose and had linked her arm through Fang Qiu’s.
Those who were most affected by this news were the classmates who had thought of Jiang Miaoyu as a beautiful goddess.
They were all extremely shocked when they heard that she had a boyfriend.
They might have worked up the courage to fight for her hand if her boyfriend had been anyone else but she was dating Fang Qiu!
How could they even compete against him?
Frankly, there were rumors that Fang Qiu was dating Jiang Miaoyu before the new year holidays commences but no one truly believed those rumors.
Although Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu were legendary figures in the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine’s campus and they seemed compatible, no one wanted to believe those rumors.
None of them wanted to see their beautiful goddess falling for Fang Qiu.
To their horror, their worst nightmare was realized immediately after the new year holidays.
Many of her admirers were extremely upset and heartbroken.
“She was our campus belle and my beautiful goddess!”
“Why do many beautiful women end up dating such average men?”
“Return my campus belle to me. Fang Qiu, I won’t let you off the hook!”
“Who would be able to stop Fang Qiu? Do we just stand by and watch as he snatches our campus belle right under our noses?”
“Damn it, I’m completely shocked. This kid has it all— fame and a beautiful girlfriend. He’s definitely a living god and the main character of his story!”
Soon, those who admired Jiang Miaoyu wailed loudly.
There was no doubt that they were completely infatuated with Jiang Miaoyu and no one was allowed to snatch her away, not even Fang Qiu!
Before he knew it, Fang Qiu was treated by Jiang Miaoyu’s admirers as public enemy number one.
Naturally, most of the other students who weren’t blindly infatuated with Jiang Miaoyu felt that the pair made a good match.
These people quickly congratulated the new couple.
“They are an ideal couple and Fang Qiu is talented while Jiang Miaoyu is a beauty.”
“Haha, Fang Qiu is so incredibly talented that it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call him the face of University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, right? Jiang Miaoyu is so beautiful that she is also considered the face of the university. Now that both representatives of our university are dating each other, it is a match made in heaven indeed.”
“One is regarded as a god while the other is regarded as a goddess. This is such a beautiful and romantic match!”
“Congratulations. When two legendary figures start dating, they are as compatible as a real-life dragon-phoenix couple!”
Sun Hao scrolled through the school’s forum and read through the deluge of comments online. Then, he immediately teased Fang Qiu who had just returned to their dormitory after sending Jiang Miaoyu home, “The youngest, you’re really stepped on many people’s toes this time. Look at how many hate comments you’re getting online. There are so many of them that they might as well form an anti-Fang Qiu club.”
“This isn’t the first time I have stepped on so many toes, right?” Jiang Mengjie flashed in his head.
However, Fang Qiu wasn’t too bothered by the comments. Instead, he said, “I only did this because I wanted everyone to know that Miaoyu is my girlfriend!”
“You’re really cool!” Sun Hao said as he immediately gave him a thumbs up.
The next day, everyone Fang Qiu passed by stared at him as he made his way to the hospital.
Although no one made a move to attack him, Fang Qiu could clearly feel that he was surrounded by murderous looks.
He could also sense that these murderous looks were full of envy and resentment!
Fang Qiu completely ignored these stares.
When he arrived at the hospital, he saw that Xu Miaolin was already waiting for him outside the hospital.
“Mr. Xu,” Fang Qiu said.
“Yes,” Xu Miaolin nodded and said. “You’re just on time. Let’s head inside.”
It was currently 8:30 AM and this was when the hospital was open.
Xu Miaolin led him to the acupuncture room on the fifth floor of the hospital.
When they emerged from the elevator after arriving on the fifth floor, the nurses and doctors on duty all stopped and stared when they noticed that it was Fang Qiu.
All of them recognized him because he was so famous within the orthopedic department.
They had snuck up to the seventh floor to see him in action and realized that he was extremely skilled.
However, that was the orthopedics department. What was he doing here at the acupuncture department?
“Hmm?” A doctor who had just emerged from his consulting room froze in surprise before he said, “Isn’t this Dr. Xiao Fang. Are you looking for someone here in the acupuncture department?”
“No,” Fang Qiu replied with a shake of his head. “I’m here to see patients!”
The doctor paused in surprise before he pointed at the plaque that hung outside the consulting room and said, “Are you in the wrong department? This is the acupuncture department and not the orthopedics department.”
“No, I haven’t gone to the wrong place,” Fang Qiu said with a smile. “I’ve come to the acupuncture department to treat patients.”
The doctor was completely dumbfounded.
Then, there was a series of footsteps.
He turned to see a man who seemed to be in his 50s or 60s. The man was a little plump, his hair was white and he was wearing a white doctor’s coat.
“Director Liu?” The doctor who had been talking to Fang Qiu said.
“You must be the director of the acupuncture department, Director Liu,” Fang Qiu said with a smile as he extended his hand to Director Liu.
“I am,” Director Liu nodded and smiled as he shook hands with Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin.
“Director Liu, what is Dr. Xiao Fang doing at the acupuncture department?” the doctor asked.
“Haha,” Director Liu chuckled and said. “Of course he’s here to see patients. The Director of the hospital has already informed me that this would be the arrangement. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Dr. Xiao Fang on behalf of the nurses and doctors of the acupuncture department.”
“Thanks,” Fang Qiu said with a nod.
“Very well,” Director Liu said. “Your consulting room is now ready and it is just ahead. Please come with me.”
Then, he led Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin to the consulting room.
The moment the trio left, the doctors and nurses who had been standing along the corridor or at the reception desk were all completely stunned.
“My God, you mean he wasn’t kidding when he said he was here to see patients?!”
“Didn’t Dr. Xiao Fang specialize in boneset? Why did he leave the orthopedics department to come here?”
“I heard rumors that Dr. Xiao Fang had been fired from the orthopedics department so he must have caused trouble over there.”
“Impossible. I’ve been to his consultation room on several occasions and each time, there were many people waiting to see him and he would also successfully cure all his patients. I don’t think that he would have caused any trouble.”
“Who cares what went down at the orthopedics department? I’m worried that he would negatively affect the reputation of the acupuncture department since he has transferred from the orthopedics department. After all, acupuncture is very different from boneset. If anything goes wrong, our department could be in big trouble.”
“I hope that he has the skills to treat patients here too. I’m sure the hospital Director and the Director of our department wouldn’t act rashly.”
On the other hand, Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin came to a consulting room on the corner of the fifth floor.
“There you go, this is your consulting room,” Director Liu said. Then, he pointed at the plaque in front of the consultation room and said, “Your name plaque is ready. I had initially wanted to post you to the general practitioners’ department to get some internship experience but the Director of the hospital said that you weren’t here to diagnose patients but to practice your acupuncture skills. This was why I arranged for you to have your own consulting room.”
“Thanks,” Fang Qiu thanked him.
Director Liu left after giving him a short briefing.
Fang Qiu had just settled in his new consulting room.
On the other hand, the news that Dr. Xiao Fang had returned to the hospital and left the orthopedics department to join the acupuncture department quickly spread throughout the hospital.
Everyone who heard this piece of news was completely bewildered.
“Are you kidding me? Is Dr. Xiao Fang at the acupuncture department?”
“This has to be a joke. It’d be such a waste of talent for Dr. Xiao Fang to leave the orthopedics department. Moreover, one would have to be extremely meticulous when performing acupuncture. He’s only a year-one college student who has not finished undergoing puberty, so will he be able to do well?”
“Dr. Xiao Fang managed to do extremely well at the orthopedics department despite his young age and this itself was an incredible achievement. It is very rare for a year-one student to be so good at one particular specialization as well but now, he’s giving up orthopedics which was something he excelled at to head to the acupuncture department. Isn’t he a little too ambitious?”
