Chapter 366 Be Careful of the Brick Falling!
On Weibo, seeing Fang Qiu’s four consecutive posts, the netizens all smiled.
These four posts made them see that Fang Qiu was not just a fan in Qigong, but a real Chinese Medicine doctor.
However, though Qi’s being proved existent caused a stir among the netizens, people were still curious that what on earth Fang Qiu had written in the essay.
Because it was still not the time, and the essay hadn’t been officially published yet. The contents posted on the “Medicine and Humans” website contained really little information, and people had read them numerous times and had spread the translated words online.
Plus, Qi had been completely proved existent.
Not only people in Huaxia, but also people from all the countries started to anticipate the latest issue of “Medicine and Humans” that was about to come out.
On the very night, the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine also officially announced the grades of the first round of the competition.
The top 100 were posted on the university’s official website.
In the dorm, Sun Hao, Zhou Xiaotian, and Zhu Benzheng gathered to check the ranking.
While Fang Qiu sat on his desk, reading.
“Holy crap. So many number ones?”
The moment he clicked on the ranking post on the official website, Sun Hao couldn’t help shouting.
He took a closer look and saw that in the top 100 list, more than 10 people should be ranked first and they’d all got full marks!
It stunned the three people.
“Again, the youngest is the number one.”
Zhou Xiaotian smiled wryly and shot a glance at Fang Qiu.
“He’s a monster. I saw him walk out of the exam classroom soon after the exam began. He got a full mark even at such a quick speed. He deserves the number one ranking.”
Sun Hao shook his head as he sighed with emotion.
“Campus Belle Jiang also got a full mark, but unfortunately, she didn’t make it into the top 5, only being ranked as eighth. That being said, she’s still in the middle stage among all those number ones.”
Saying that, Zhu Benzheng also stole a glance at Fang Qiu and mouthed. “The two in one family are both monsters.”
Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao consecutively nodded their agreement.
Meanwhile, Fang Qiu didn’t notice him at all.
Zhou Xiaotian urged. “Hurry. Check if there are our names.”
Sun Hao scrolled down the ranking list and suddenly yelled, saying. “The 48th.”
Having a look and confirming it was his name, Zhu Benzheng immediately chuckled.
He kept scrolling down.
The two, Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao, were carefully looking for their names.
It turned out that neither of them found their names.
Until it was after the 70th place, Sun Hao changed his face.
“The 71st, the 71st place. I’m in it. Haha.”
Looking at the name and grade of the 71st place, Sun Hao immediately chuckled, very excited.
“I’m in it, I’m also in it.”
Suddenly, Zhou Xiaotian also excitedly yelled. While he yelled, he fingered at the 73rd place.
It was the place where his name was right at.
The three all made it onto the list.
Fang Qiu was very relieved to see the result.
Initially, except Zhu Benzheng, Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao both weren’t too good at studying.
This time, by the fact that the three of them made it onto the list together, one could see how hard-working they had been recently.
After making sure they were all on the list, the three quickly diverted their attention.
They started to search and browse reports about Chinese Medicine’s “Qi”‘s being improved existent on the Internet.
It turned out that, after one click of search, they immediately found a barrage of coverage.
On the other side, after reading, as usual, Fang Qiu climbed up to the bed and started the mental training.
At that time, what was hanging in the middle of the air was not a water glass anymore. Instead, half of a brick was hung.
When he first changed it into a brick, his three roommates harshly mocked Fang Qiu.
Zhou Xiaotian even said, “Be careful. The brick might fall on your tool in the middle of the night!”
However, Fang Qiu just ignored them.
It was he who hung the brick in the air. He could naturally promise that it was absolutely steady.
It was 9 a.m. the next morning.
The 100 students who passed the first test participated in the second test in the school canteen, which was herb-recognizing!
It was 8:50.
Nearly all of the people who were qualified to take the herb-recognizing had already gathered here.
Though the gate of the canteen was still closed, they could clearly see through the glass door that the canteen was already full of herbs.
Among these herbs, some were fresh ingredients picked from Yaowang Mountain; some were already made into medicine. They had been spread densely on the rows of tables in the canteen.
The number of the herbs had astoundingly exceeded 500!
Though it sounded like a lot of herbs, actually, there were in total over 8,000 known Chinese Medicine herbs, and these more than 500 herbs were only a small fraction of it.
It was 8:55 am.
Fang Qiu and his three roommates arrived together.
The moment they arrived, the crowd was stirred.
In the crowd, a University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine student pointed at Fang Qiu and said, “He’s Fang Qiu.”
Hearing his words, all of the people present instantly fixed their gazes at Fang Qiu.
Now, Fang Qiu was the real center of the Internet trending topics and also the focus of the medical community.
However, it was all just because he released an essay in a foreign magazine.
The participants’ envy and jealousy toward him were too many to be enumerated.
The most terrifying part was that Fang Qiu was really too young.
It was only in the second semester of his freshman year.
In the meanwhile, seeing the stir of the crowd, the three people including Zhu Benzheng looked at each other and quickly retreated to the side.
Seeing how Fang Qiu still remained calm under everyone’s gaze, they tut-tutted in their hearts. “If it were us, we’d have long gotten nervous under so many people’s gazes.”
At this time, a student from another school suddenly walked over and stood in front of Fang Qiu. “You’re Fang Qiu?”
Fang Qiu nodded to admit. “Yes.”
The student from another school suddenly asked, “Shall we have a friendly competition on medical skills while it’s convenient for you?”
Hearing that, the fact that nobody had initially paid attention to him immediately changed; everyone fixed their gazes on him one after another.
He just directly challenged Fang Qiu in the very beginning?
Who on earth got the balls?
They looked and found it was a student around 20. He was wearing glasses and looked kind of thin, which clearly struck people as a top student.
A top student challenged Fang Qiu?
There would be a great show.
The surrounding people all tittered, expecting a great show.
However, no one had expected that after looking at the person who challenged him, Fang Qiu just faintly smiled and said, “You’d better nourish your liver Qi before that.”
Hearing that, the person was dazed and couldn’t help feeling embarrassed.
Fang Qiu was right; there was indeed some issue with his liver Qi.
He didn’t expect that Fang Qiu recognized it just after one glance.
After this, the student who wanted to challenge him was immediately lost for words; he could only awkwardly stand where he was.
Noticing the strange atmosphere, the surrounding people immediately understood.
“He’s got that right?”
“No way. He’s such a badass?”
“Holy crap. He can even do that with the looking diagnosis? He’s too much of a talent, isn’t he?”
“What’s the point of having a competition? Fang Qiu tells the issue with your liver Qi with one look. Can you identify it yourself?”
At that time, people were all discussing.
At the same time, the three people, including Zhu Benzheng, immediately approached.
Sun Hao asked, “The youngest, how did you know his liver Qi problem?”
Fang Qiu faintly smiled and said, “His face is bluish, which indicates a liver malfunction. And he’s a little hot-tempered. Judging from those points, it must have mainly been issues associated with liver and gallbladder.”
Hearing that, the three people understandingly nodded.
However, at this time, another teenager walked out of the crowd. “Fang Qiu.”
He was in regular casual wear and was rather good-looking.
The youth asked, “I’ve gotten to know herbs since young. Now, I don’t dare to declare that I know all of them, but I can at least identify 80% of them. I want to compete with you, to see who knows better this time. Will you take this challenge?”
Hearing that, before Fang Qiu spoke, Sun Hao immediately strode over and said, “There’s no need for you to compete with Fang Qiu. If you really want to, you can just compete with us.”
Hearing that, Zhu Benzheng and Zhou Xiaotian also stood out from the crowd.
The three people all acted confidently.
After all, having learned from the Yaowang Mountain keeper for such a long time, they really knew a lot of Chinese Medicine herbs. In Sun Hao’s words, it was really easy to learn about herbs.
The youth asked, “And you are?”
Sun Hao proudly lifted his head. “We’re Fang Qiu’s roommates.”
However, the youth just answered with a blank face, not showing any respect for them. “Oh. Never heard of you guys.”
Hearing that, the three people including Zhu Benzheng were burning with fury.
The youth not only ignored them but also directly turned to face Fang Qiu. “Fang Qiu, will you compete with me or not?”
“Compete with us first if you really want to!”
The three people including Sun Hao immediately blocked Fang Qiu behind them and said, “Don’t think you’re such a badass. We’ll definitely knock you out!”
The youth darted a glance at Fang Qiu.
Receiving no response or answer from Fang Qiu, the youth suddenly sneered and said, “Since you want to embarrass yourself, then fine. It’ll be a trial anyway.”
Hearing that, he deliberately turned around and shot a provoking look at Fang Qiu.
Unfortunately, Fang Qiu didn’t notice that.
Because at that time, Fang Qiu was looking at a figure who arrived late outside the crowd—Jiang Miaoyu.
He smiled and waved.
Jiang Miaoyu walked to his side and said, “You’ve done great this time.”
Fang Qiu smiled. “Just so-so, the third one of the world.”
“Pfft,” Jiang Miaoyu rolled her eyes at Fang Qiu and said, “Are you confident about this exam?”
“Of course I am.” Fang Qiu nodded and asked back, “What about you?”
Jiang Miaoyu proudly said, “Though my family studies acupuncture, at least we’re a Chinese Medicine family. I’ve been reciting herbs since young. Do you think I feel confident or not?”
“It’s good if you feel confident.”
Fang Qiu beamed and said, “Keep up the good work.”
Jiang Miaoyu nodded and answered.
It was 9:00 am.
The teacher came.
“Now it’s time for the second exam. I’ll announce the rules.”
The teacher stood in front of the canteen and said, “The exam requires you to recognize herbs. Each has two hours. When the exam starts, everyone comes to me to get your papers, which have corresponding numbers on them. You’ll need to write the herb names by the correct numbers. And you can find all of the numbered herbs on the canteen tables.”
At this point, the teacher waved, and a few staff members immediately ran over, carrying a table.
“Don’t think you can cheat when there’s no proctor. All that cheat will be eliminated, understand?”
Setting up the table, the teacher added seriously, then sat down behind the desk, and shouted. “Now let the exam begin!”
