Chapter 601: Trouble Old Mr. Du to Read Her Pulse
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
The situation was incomprehensible by everyone. Ning Shuqian fell down and didn’t look too good. Wen Haowen had his priorities wrong and was pursuing whose fault it was. Luckily, Miss Wen was calm and got Du Shinan to read Ning Shuqian’s pulse. Such a rare opportunity was actually rejected by Ning Shuqian who insisted on going to the hospital—how could the doctors in the hospital compare to Master Du’s brilliant hands.
She didn’t sprain her back nor twisted her ankle—guess she injured her brain!
And as Wen Xinya rightfully said, traveling from here in the inner district to the hospital would take more than an hour which would be too late.
Everyone gathered in whispers which traveled into Wen Haowen’s ears. When Wen Haowen thought about how Ning Shuqian wore high heels while being pregnant, twisted her ankle, fell, and injured his long-awaited child, he felt a sense of anger within him. Now that she was kicking up a fuss unreasonably, his face instantly changed for the worse.
Ning Shuqian’s eyes widened in a fear-instilling viciousness and suddenly looked towards Wen Xinya. “Wen Xinya, everyone knows that your Grampy is on good terms with Old Mr. Du and you’re currently learning medicine from him. You’re close to the Du Family and want Old Mr. Du to read my pulse—are you thinking of ways to harm me again…”
Ning Shuqian’s words caused a stir among those present. She was questioning Old Mr. Du’s professional ethics.
Du Shinan was about to speak when Wen Xinya met Ning Shuqian’s gaze with an even harsher look with a tinge of shocking terror. “Aunt Ning, you can defame me, but you can’t malign Grandpa Du’s professional ethics. Grandpa Du has practiced medicine all his life and was eventually said to be the most prestigious medical practitioner in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field. He’s well-respected and held in high esteem by the masses not just because of his excellent skill, but also because of his outstanding professional ethics.”
Du Shinan looked at Wen Xinya with satisfaction and decided that regardless of the game this girl was playing, he would do his best to go with the flow.
Ning Shuqian was speechless as she stared at Wen Xinya, the hatred in her heart brewing and swallowing her alive.
Wen Haowen also stared at Ning Shuqian with viciousness. “If you carry on being so unreasonable, even I won’t allow you to do it.”
By being so difficult, she was making Wen Haowen lose face and he felt very embarrassed.
An idiom suddenly flashed in Ning Shuqian’s mind!
Her days were gone!
No… she couldn’t give in, she couldn’t let Wen Xinya’s plot against her succeed. No…
“I don’t want to have my pulse read. I want to go to the hospital!” Ning Shuqian suddenly shrieked out loud as she hammered Wen Haowen’s chest non-stop, not allowing Du Shinan to read her pulse. Since the soft approach didn’t work, she could also make a scene to stop Du Shinan from reading her pulse. She hated Wen Xinya to the core.
Wen Haowen’s expression turned cold.
Ning Shuqian kept shaking her head as her voice turned hoarser and more unpleasant with fear and panic. “Haowen, send me to the hospital. I want to go to the hospital. Doctor Lin… only Doctor Lin knows my condition the best. I only trust her…”
Wen Haowen furrowed his brows deeply as his expression became increasingly horrible. “Let Master Du read your pulse first and determine your condition before we decide. You’re carrying the bloodline of the Wen Family, don’t be willful about everything…”
Ning Shuqian was adamant as she shot a harsh glance at Wen Xinya and said in a hoarse voice, “Wen Xinya, what do you want exactly? I don’t believe that you’re so kind. Are you trying to harm the baby in my womb again?”
Wen Xinya’s gaze was emotionless as her thin lips curled up ever so slightly. “Aunt Ning, I was also present when you fell down previously. If something were to happen to you, I’ll be in trouble as well. I don’t wish for the same thing at the Wen Corporation’s annual gala to happen again. Thus, I got Grandpa Du to read your pulse and clear up suspicions in order to prevent Father from misunderstanding me again.”
Saying which, she looked down slightly and concealed all of her thoughts.
However, her words made everyone recall that previously at the Wen Corporation’s annual gala, Ning Shuqian had outrightly said that Wen Xinya caused her to fall down. Now, the same thing was happening again. Previously, Wen Haowen had indeed placed the blame on Wen Xinya. Wen Xinya only got Du Shinan to read her pulse after that, explaining everything clearly which was reasonable and indisputable by anyone.
Wen Xinya was actually so glib-tongued. Ning Shuqian’s gaze instantly turned vicious and shot towards Wen Xinya like poisoned arrows as she shouted hoarsely, “Wen Xinya… your words are so altisonant. Previously, you’d obviously pushed me to the ground on purpose. You’re obviously trying to harm the baby in my womb. Don’t you even think about trying to harm me—I won’t fall for your trick and won’t let you succeed…”
In the face of Ning Shuqian’s accusation, Wen Xinya remained calm and distant all the way. “Aunt Ning, you better stop struggling. Look at how scarily pale you are right now, breaking into cold sweat—you must be feeling very miserable. If you continue struggling and something bad were to really happen, I’ll be implicated and you can’t bear the consequences either.”
Ning Shuqian thought that by saying the truth, people would believe her reason for refusing medical consultation. If she were to engage other doctors, people might be convinced by Ning Shuqian and let her eventually succeed. However, Wen Xinya had engaged Grandpa Du Shinan, whose reputation in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field was far beyond anyone’s reach and not to be disrespected. This move of Ning Shuqian would perhaps only let everyone loathe her even more.
Ning Shuqian was still putting up a last-ditch struggle as she stared at Wen Xinya as if she wanted to swallow her alive. “Wen Xinya, you vicious b*tch. You’re obviously trying to harm me, I’m not going to fall for your trick…”
Wen Xinya’s calmness and Ning Shuqian’s hysteria were instantly presented in stark contrast. Additionally, Wen Xinya spoke with logic and Ning Shuqian instead appeared somewhat unreasonable. Everyone became increasingly displeased with Ning Shuqian and instead admired Wen Xinya’s calmness and steadiness.
Everyone’s unmoving attitude finally sent darkness before Ning Shuqian’s eyes. Feeling as if she was falling into a dark valley, she shrieked. “No… get lost! I don’t want you to read my pulse. Get lost! Get lost! Get lost… quack! You only gained fame by deceiving the public…”
Ning Shuqian used these insulting words intentionally. How could a highly respected and admired person tolerate such insults—naturally, he wouldn’t read her pulse anymore.
Du Shinan’s expression darkened as he bit down on his lips tightly.
Wen Xinya pursed her lips and sneered. Previously, when she made Du Ruo read Ning Shuqian’s pulse, Ning Shuqian had used this tactic. She thought that by using the same trick she could eliminate the adversity that would follow. However, she was merely putting up her last struggle like a trapped beast.
Wen Haowen instantly cut off her words fiercely. “You, shut up. Master Du is virtuous and respectable, how can you defame him like this.”
As Du Shinan was a prestigious medical practitioner in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field, high ranking government officials and wealthy families were all on good terms with him. By insulting him like this in public, Ning Shuqian would cause the Wen Family to offend Du Shinan, which was equivalent to offending the entire circle.
The people below were thoroughly unhappy with Ning Shuqian. Master Du was a highly skilled physician said as the most prestigious medical practitioner in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field and was even reputable abroad. Ning Shuqian actually dared to call him a quack and said that he had only gained fame by deceiving the public.
Ning Shuqian didn’t just sprain her back and twisted her ankle, but injured her brain and became stupid.
At this point, Old Mr. Wen walked over slowly, his aged face filled with an eerie coldness, his sharp eyes almost looking through one’s heart. “You’re carrying the Wen Family’s bloodline. It’s not up to you to struggle.”
