Chapter 371 He Would Be a Big Shot Someday!
As the invigilator called, Fang Qiu stepped forward and entered the No. 1 exam room.
From the outside, the windows of the classroom had been sealed up so tightly that the situation inside could not be seen at all. But after entering the classroom, Fang Qiu found that the room was unusually bright.
It was not about the lights.
It was because a window on the other side of the room which faced the drain wasn’t covered.
An old man was sitting at the only table in the middle of the room.
Taking a closer look, Fang Qiu found that the old man had white hair and a ruddy complexion, looking hale and hearty.
“Are you Fang Qiu?”
As Fang Qiu watched the old man, he also looked back at Fang Qiu with interest.
“Yes.” Fang Qiu nodded.
Just now, the invigilator outside the classroom had called his name, so it was not surprising that the old man knew his name.
“Not bad, kid.” The old man nodded his head in satisfaction. “It’s been a long time since a young fellow like you has risen in Chinese Medicine. And it’s also been a long time since the TCM has experienced such turmoil and attention. I want to thank you for all you have done for the Chinese Medicine community. Because of you, I feel that there is hope for Chinese Medicine.
“Hopefully, there will be more like you.
“We’re are old, and young people like you have the future. And the future of Chinese Medicine depends on you.”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu saluted the old man. “Master.” An idea came to him.
If the old could say such words, it would only mean that he had practiced Chinese Medicine for many years. Whether judging from the age or the medical experience, Fang Qiu should call him “Master”.
“Hmm.” The old man smiled and nodded, satisfied with the reaction of Fang Qiu.
“Well, time is limited. Let’s cut to the chase.” With that, the old man put his hand on the table and said, “Come and help me have a look.”
Without any hesitation, Fang Qiu moved forward.
After diagnosing, Fang Qiu smiled and said, “Master, you’re in good health, but your lungs are a bit weak. You should have more rest.”
He quickly wrote down his judgments and prescriptions on the exam paper on the table.
“Well, you can leave now.” When he saw what Fang Qiu had written, the old man smiled, nodded with satisfaction, and asked him to leave.
Meanwhile, as he carefully considered Fang Qiu’s proposal, Chen Yinsheng convened a meeting with the deans of all faculties to discuss it.
Perhaps it was because the matter that Qi had been proved to be real went viral recently, the deans all agreed with Fang Qiu’s suggestion.
By doing this, they felt that not only would it be able to improve the medical standards of the students, but it would also be able to make the school become one of the most prestigious TCM schools in the country, which taught Chinese Medicine.
It would become the only school where people could practice Qi.
For those preparing to take the college entrance examination and major in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it would be a strong temptation.
There was no doubt that Fang Qiu’s proposal was adopted by all the deans.
The exam continued.
At 9:50 a.m, the examination of the first round was finished.
The first group, where Fang Qiu was in, needed to go to the second examination room to continue the examination.
When it was his turn, Fang Qiu entered the examination room.
In the classroom, there was also an old gentleman.
This old man was different from the old man in the examination room No. 1. He didn’t speak but directly let Fang Qiu diagnose. While Fang Qiu was diagnosing, he had been looking at him with eyes full of satisfaction and then nodding.
Another 50 minutes passed. It was 10:40 a.m.
The three groups changed the exam rooms again.
In the third examination room, an old gentleman was also sitting there.
This old gentleman was much older than those in the other two exam rooms.
Although he had long grey hair, he combed it neatly, which made him look nothing like a messy old man at all. Instead, he made people feel comfortable as they looked at him.
Fang Qiu got into the classroom and sat down in front of the table.
The old man didn’t speak and then calmly extended his hand to Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu didn’t hesitate and instantly felt the old man’s pulse.
After feeling the pulse, he looked at the old man and said, “Master, the cold in your body is intense.”
“Yes.” The old man nodded and said, “In the early years, I was wrapped up in treating more patients, so I accidentally got the cold which has been in my body for many years.”
“Master, if you don’t mind, I can help you eliminate the cold,” Fang Qiu said.
“Oh?” The old man paused for a second and then replied, “Sure.”
Fang Qiu then held the old man’s wrist at once.
The Internal Qi flowed from Fang Qiu’s fingertips, injecting into the old man’s body and starting to eliminate his cold.
“Eh?” As if sensing something, the old man was surprised and said, “This is Qi, right? It feels good.”
“Many Chinese doctors know Qi and the theories, but very few can feel the existence of Qi, let alone using it to cure diseases.”
Speaking of which, the old man smiled at Fang Qiu and nodded his head. “A ragged colt may make a good horse.”
Fang Qiu smiled and continued to eliminate the cold.
After finishing eliminating the cold, he wrote down his diagnosis and prescriptions.
In the meantime, the old man, who had been staring at Fang Qiu, suddenly opened his mouth and asked, “Who is your master?”
“I don’t have a master.” Fang Qiu shook his head and added, “But I have a teacher. His name is Xu Miaolin.”
“Oh.” The old man paused and then beamed. “You both are intelligent. Give him my regards. I’m Ye Jiuling.”
“Got it.” Fang Qiu nodded and got up. He saluted the old man and left the room.
Three tests were completed.
In the afternoon, three old men gathered in one place.
This time, they personally participated in the assessment, so they were the ones to decide the ranking.
“Please write down the student who deserves the first place.” Ye Jiuling opened his mouth.
As he spoke, he also wrote down a name.
When the three of them had finished, they unfolded the paper, only to find that they all wrote down the same name—Fang Qiu.
All of them laughed as they saw the name.
“I thought Fang Qiu was a conceited person, but he turned out to be a humble kid. It’s rare to meet a young fellow who excels in his skill with good character,” the old man of exam room No. 1 said.
“Yes, this kid would be a big shot someday.” The old man of exam room No. 2 nodded.
“The best part is, the kid has a teacher. Do you know who he is?” Ye Jiuling said with a mysterious smile.
Hearing that, the other two looked at each other and shook their heads.
They really didn’t know who Fang Qiu’s teacher was.
“Xu Miaolin,” Ye Jiuling said.
Hearing that, the other two old men were stunned.
At the next moment, the three old men looked at each other and laughed at the same time.
“So it means that a marvelous young man is teaching an amazing kid,” the old man of room No. 1 said.
“The point is, this kid is even more powerful than the young man.” The old man of room No. 2 kept smiling while shaking his head.
Ye Jiuling also smiled happily.
“Aye?” At this point, the old man of room No. 1 was surprised while looking at Ye Jiuling. “Your complexion looks better.”
“I noticed that, too. What happened?” the old man of room No. 2 asked.
Ye Jiuling smiled but didn’t speak.
“Come on, tell me.” The old man of room No. 1 urged him.
“It’s nothing, really.” Ye Jiuling smiled mysteriously and said, “It’s just that the cold that has bothered me for so many years has gone.”
“Hmm?” The two old men were stunned.
“Gone?” This was a disease that might not be cured in a lifetime. And he suddenly recovered in the blink of an eye.
“Just tell us what’s going on,” the old man of room No. 1 asked eagerly.
“It’s Fang Qiu.” As they kept asking, Ye Jiuling said, “When he was taking the exam, he used Qi to help me eliminate the cold.”
“What?” The other two were shocked.
But they weren’t shocked by the Qi.
Because they knew that since the existence of Qi was proved by Fang Qiu, it was possible for one to use Qi.
But the thing that scared them the most was he only had five minutes to finish the exam.
The cold in Ye Jiuling’s body had been accumulating since he was young. It had been decades since he had it. Although he was trying to cure it in recent years, the cold was too heavy to be cured.
But now, it just took five minutes.
Actually, it took less than five minutes.
Fang Qiu unexpectedly spent less than five minutes eliminating all the cold in Ye Jiuling’s body.
How could they not be shocked?
“He’s indeed a young talent!”
The old man of room No. 1 couldn’t help but exclaim, “We got someone to count on in Chinese Medicine.”
“Yeah.” The old man of room No. 2 also let out a long breath and said, “Now the old men can rest now. We can just let these young people fight for Chinese Medicine.”
It didn’t take long before the top 10 of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition was announced.
The First Place: Fang Qiu!
Once the list was made public, it shocked everyone.
For students from the same school and the same area, it was really unbelievable that Fang Qiu should get the first place three times. The most important thing was that in the first round, there were more than 10 people tying for first place. And Fang Qiu still won the first place among them. It was certainly not the task for ordinary people.
In the second and third rounds of the examination, Fang Qiu also won the first place, making other students lose the confidence to compete with him.
Except for Fang Qiu, Jiang Miaoyu also made it into the top 10 of the list, coming in seventh place.
Unfortunately, Zhu Benzheng and the other two roommates failed to make it into the list.
There was no other way. The people of this exam were too outstanding. In the first round, all three of them ranked over 30. If it didn’t happen to test Chinese herbs, which they had been practicing lately, they might not be able to make it to the third round.
As a matter of fact, they had only practiced Chinese Medicine for less than a year, so it was pretty impressive of them to rank among the top 30.
Meanwhile, the competition’s official Weibo account also announced each area’s selected list as soon as the examination finished.
People checked on the list in Jiangjing.
Fang Qiu won the first place.
This result surprised lots of people, but it came with the territory.
To their surprise, Fang Qiu was able to take down so many people who were senior to him, as well as those powerful people in the folk.
And they also thought it came with the territory because they believed that Fang Qiu was capable of winning this place since he could publish the core thesis in a foreign periodical.
However, when combining these two points with the identity of Fang Qiu, who was a freshman in the university, people still found it incredible.
