“Rustle…” The wind was whistling in the woods.
With the thunder and lightning in the sky, the animals in the forest were scattered.
Under the dark clouds, Fang Qiu didn’t hesitate. He opened the box immediately and swallowed the Heaven Treasure…
“Come on!” Fang Qiu shouted in his heart.
It was time for a breakthrough and the reopening of the second meridian, Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin!
“Shoo!” As Fang Qiu let out all his strength, the energy from Heaven and Earth swept up and poured into his body quickly like the flowing river.
In the meantime, Fang Qiu bit off the plum blossom in his mouth.
The plum blossom immediately turned into a cool stream of energy, flowing down his throat and rushing toward the Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin.
The Heaven and Earth energy poured into his body.
Fang Qiu controlled the energy and forced it to crash the Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin.
In an instant, this meridian, which was as thin as a chopstick, expanded to the size of his little finger and continued to expand.
“Ah…” The pain was so intense that Fang Qiu couldn’t help screaming.
Fortunately, the energy transformed through the plum blossom came in time. It covered the whole meridian immediately and was able to reduce Fang Qiu’s pain as it continually restored the meridian which had been broken.
Just like last time, the energy of the Heaven and Earth that the meridian attracted when it broke through was madly colliding like the lava. However, the power of the plum blossom was about to confine that energy in the meridian.
As two kinds of energy were confronting each other, the Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin was expanding. Though the wall of it was getting thinner, the meridian became stronger.
“Hmm?” All of a sudden, Fang Qiu’s face changed.
He saw that the energy used to reopen the meridian was subtly becoming stronger, which even forced the plum blossom’s energy away.
As blossom’s energy was slowly forced away, the sharp pain also came again.
Suddenly, it made Fang Qiu sweat heavily.
“A little bit more!” Clenching his teeth, Fang Qiu made every effort to resist it.
It was the only energy transformed by plum blossom. Once it was moved away, it certainly couldn’t return. The only way was to resist it and used this energy to restore the broken meridian after the meridian was fully reopened.
While he was enduring the pain, Fang Qiu found that the difficulty of reopening the meridian was beyond his imagination once again. Under the circumstances, the Earth Treasure wouldn’t be able to meet his need to reopen the meridians.
If he wanted to reopen other meridians, he had to use Heaven Treasures. All the Earth Treasures wouldn’t help at all.
And it had to rank higher than plum blossom.
The energy of plum blossom could barely support him to reopen the Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin. It would be harder for him to reopen the next meridian.
However, was it that easy to find the Heaven Treasure? He didn’t even know whether there were so many of them.
“Ah!!!” All of a sudden, Fang Qiu looked up to the sky and howled.
After a long period of agony, he was finally able to make a real breakthrough and the Heart Meridian of Hand-Shaoyin was finally fully reopened.
For others, the breakthrough was a joy.
But for Fang Qiu, every breakthrough was a battle because his breakthrough was to destroy the meridians!
The roar was so loud.
Although it couldn’t compete with the whistle of the wind, thunder, and lightning of the sky, Fang Qiu actually discovered something as he looked up at the sky.
When he looked up at the sky and screamed, there was a crack in the dark clouds.
Looking at the crack, Fang Qiu was a little stunned.
“Beep beep beep… ” At this point, his phone rang suddenly.
Although the sound of thunder and lightning was loud, Fang Qiu could notice his phone ringing because he switched the phone to vibration mode. Therefore, he took out his phone to have a look.
It was He Gaoming.
“Hello?” Fang Qi picked up the phone.
“Where are you?” The other side of the phone came the anxious voice of He Gaoming.
“What’s wrong?” Fang Qiu asked hurriedly.
“I know you go to the University of Chinese Medicine. Do you know any good doctors, or do you have any friends or classmates who know good doctors?” He Gaoming asked anxiously.
“Are you hurt?” Fang Qiu asked.
“It’s a friend of mine. He’s seriously injured,” He Gaoming replied.
“How bad is it? What kind of injury?” Fang Qiu asked hurriedly.
“It’s really bad!” He Gaoming said urgently, “I don’t have time to chat with you. Do you know a powerful doctor or not? I only know one doctor. It’s you. You can not tell me you don’t know any other doctors.”
Fang Qiu’s brows tightened as he heard that.
Judging from what He Gaoming said and the tone of his voice, Fang Qiu realized the seriousness of the problem.
“You have to tell me first. What happened? What kind of injury?”
Fang Qiu explained hurriedly, “Only if I know what the injury is, can I find a doctor for you.”
“It’s an incident happened in our martial arts circle.”
“In our martial arts world, there is a senior master named Elder Yi who was wounded by martial art practitioners from other provinces. It is a very serious internal injury,” He Gaoming said.
“Where are you now?” Fang Qiu asked, raising his eyebrows.
Elder Yi was seriously injured and was hit by martial arts practitioners from another province. Fang Qiu was worried as he heard that.
Elder Yi was a Grade-two Martial Superior. Since last time he got the Bingdi Lotus, it was possible that he might reach the level of Grade-three Martial Superior. How could he be seriously injured?
“We’re in a manor six kilometers outside the countryside,” He Gaoming said.
Hearing that, Fang Qiu knew at once that they were in Elder Yi’s manor.
“Wait for me, I’ll be there right away,” Fang Qiu said.
“What? Why should we wait for you? Get me a powerful doctor,” He Gaoming said.
“I am a powerful doctor.”
“I know Qigong. You know it,” Fang Qiu added.
“Don’t try to fool me. A man’s life is at stake,” He Gaoming said.
“I’m a doctor!” Fang Qiu replied in a deep voice.
“Well, we’ll wait for you then. Hurry up,” He Gaoming said.
He knew what Fang Qiu meant as he said those words, so he chose to believe him.
Hanging up the phone, Fang Qiu immediately flew out. Because he was outside the city, Fang Qiu wasn’t afraid to be seen. He crossed the mountains and forests, flying all the way to Elder Yi’s manor.
“Elder Yi has such great prestige in the martial arts circle in Jiangjing. Even if he doesn’t excel at martial arts, people from other provinces will show some respect to him when they come. Moreover, Elder Yi has many friends in the martial arts world. Who dares to lay hands on him and injure him badly?” Fang Qiu was puzzled.
He couldn’t figure out what happened.
“Is it…” Suddenly, something seemed to occur to Fang Qiu.
He dimly felt that this matter might have something to do with him.
Soon, Fang Qiu arrived at the manor.
Instead of flying straight in, he trotted and panted to the gate of the manor.
At this time, He Gaoming had been waiting at the gate of the manor.
“Go, go, go.” As He Gaoming saw Fang Qiu coming, he grabbed his arm and took him to run into the manor.
They stopped at the water garden in the middle of the manor.
Fang Qiu looked around and immediately saw many familiar practitioners. These people had varying degrees of injuries on their bodies and faces as if they just finished a fight.
Just as Fang Qiu was looking around, He Gaoming dragged him straight to the center of the ring.
Elder Yi had passed out in the center of the ring. Many people surrounded him, feeling worried.
“He Gaoming, why did you find such a little guy?”
“Yes, we asked you to find a famous doctor. Why do you bring a student here? Could you pay the price if you waste the time in saving Elder Yi?”
“He, you said you could find a doctor because you know someone. This is who you found?”
“Is this little guy reliable?”
People were asking so many questions.
It was clear that everyone was concerned about Elder Yi.
“Don’t worry. I can swear by my master’s name,” He Gaoming said, “he is absolutely reliable.”
That being said, He Gaoming was also worried, secretly praying that Fang Qiu had to be able to treat Elder Yi. Otherwise, he would be screwed.
Hearing He Gaoming’s words, Fang Qiu could not help but purse his lips.
When did I become your master?
Secretly rolling his eyes at He Gaoming, Fang Qiu squatted beside Elder Yi with all eyes on him. He began to feel his pulse and check his injury.
Fang Qiu then found that Elder Yi really got a serious internal injury.
Whoever did this, they were too cruel.
If they were more ruthless, they might be able to directly destroy Elder Yi’s martial arts power.
What kind of grudge was that?
After he examined Elder Yi’s injury, Fang Qiu immediately asked, “Are there any acupuncture tools?”
One of Elder Yi’s servants immediately replied and hurriedly went to get them.
Actually, Fang Qiu didn’t need acupuncture.
According to the current injury of Elder Yi, Fang Qiu only needed to use his internal Qi to help him restore the internal injury of his organs and meridians.
However, anyone who was below Grade-seven Martial Superior wasn’t able to use internal Qi to restore the meridians.
Even those who were powerful than Grade-seven Martial Superior could only restore the broken meridians. They couldn’t cure completely destroyed meridians. Moreover, only the higher Martial Superior could help the lower Martial Superior do it.
If their own meridians were destroyed, they couldn’t repair it by themselves. They could only rely on others.
At this point, Elder Yi didn’t only have injuries inside his body, his meridians were also seriously damaged. Although they weren’t broken, they were badly damaged.
Fortunately, they could be repaired.
Therefore, in order to protect his identity, Fang Qiu asked for acupuncture tools.
If he didn’t use acupuncture to save Elder Yi, then these people who didn’t know him would realize Fang Qiu was more powerful than Elder Yi. When he put it in this way, those people would know that he was the mysterious man.
Soon, Elder Yi’s men came running with a box of acupuncture tools.
Fang Qiu immediately started to place the needles.
He used acupuncture and moxibustion to stop the injury of his organs, controlling the internal Qi to slowly put the silver needles into Elder Yi’s body. As he was twisting the needles, he secretly channeled his internal Qi to draw Elder Yi’s internal Qi and restore the injured viscera and meridians.
While Fang Qiu was using the needles, people were staring at him nervously. No one dared to make a sound to disturb Fang Qiu. They only whispered to each other.
“That guy was simply shameless. I couldn’t believe he actually did this to Elder Yi.”
“Yeah. He just thought he was so competent, saying that Elder Yi took away his Bingdi Lotus with the mysterious man. Now he wanted to seek revenge. He was really shameless…”
“The most important thing is that he is a Grade-five Martial Superior. And he gathered a number of people together to fight here. They were just bullying someone weaker than them. Shame on him!”
