Chapter 402 Mental Power Accelerates Healing
“Shit.” He Gaoming clutched his stomach in pain. Through the crack in the toilet, he saw the two men walking away. He then punched the ground angrily.
The pain got worse because of the punch.
“Ah…” A cry of pain was heard.
He Gaoming was furious.
He did not expect that he still got robbed even though he was so careful and cautious.
The most important thing was that the Earth Treasures belonged to his master.
He was furious because he was finally able to do something for the mysterious man, but eventually, he failed to finish the job.
He was not only angry at the men but also furious at himself.
He had been lying on the ground for five whole minutes.
He Gaoming didn’t stand up until the pain eased a little bit. Then he took out his cell phone to make a call.
“I was robbed. You can check the location of my phone. Whatever it takes, find out who did this!”
Hanging up the phone, He Gaoming leaned against the wall of the toilet, took a deep breath, and recalled the appearance of the two men just now.
At first, he didn’t understand how anyone could dress like the same.
Now he knew why they did this. “Camouflage!”
He Gaoming figured out that it was an elaborate robbery. Both of them covered their faces with long hair. Even if he tried to have a closer look at them, all he could see was half of the face.
Therefore, even though He Gaoming tried so hard to recall what he had seen, he could only remember their outfits. The memory of their faces was so fuzzy.
“Who could they be?” He Gaoming began to ponder.
He thought about it for a while, then came up with an answer.
There was no doubt that the prime suspect was the auction house.
After dinner, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu strolled in the street for a while. Then they went back to their own rooms.
Fang Qiu’s phone rang when he just got back to his room.
He took out the phone and found that it was a strange number.
“Hello, who is it?” Fang Qiu picked up the phone in confusion.
“Hi, I’m the doctor in the capital hospital. We spoke this afternoon. Do you remember?” The man asked on the other side of the phone.
“Yes, I remember.” Fang Qiu nodded.
“Since you’re so good at Chinese Medicine, you must know many great Chinese Medicine doctors. Do you know anyone who is good at bonesetting?” the doctor asked in a particularly anxious tone.
“How great you want?” Fang Qiu asked.
“It’s better to be the kind of master who can completely cure comminuted fracture without having surgery,” the doctor said.
“Er… Who do you need to treat and what is the patient’s condition?” Fang Qiu hesitated for a while and asked.
“I have no time for this,” the doctor was so anxious. “If you can, please introduce someone to me.”
“Okay. If you believe me, I can recommend someone for you.”
“Who?” the doctor asked.
“Me,” Fang Qiu replied.
The doctor was stupefied for a moment, and then immediately asked, “You really can do that?”
“Yes!” Fang Qiu said with certainty.
He had done it before and he didn’t even make a breakthrough in his mental power at that time. Now that his mental power had reached a certain level, he was absolutely confident about bonesetting.
“Okay, I’ll pick you up,” the doctor said.
“No need,” Fang Qiu said, shaking his head. “It’s a waste of time waiting for you to pick me up. Give me the address, and I’ll go there right now.”
“Capital hospital, sixth floor, Orthopaedics. I’ll meet you here,” the doctor said.
“Okay.” Fang Qiu nodded at once.
Capital hospital. That was the hospital they met in the morning.
Then Fang Qiu grabbed his things and left the room.
He came across Jiang Miaoyu at the door.
After knowing what he was going to do, Jiang Miaoyu decided to go with Fang Qiu.
The distance between the hotel and the hospital was not so far. There was no traffic jam, so they arrived at the hospital after taking a taxi for fifteen minutes.
They immediately went to the sixth floor.
No sooner had they got out of the elevator than they saw the doctor pacing anxiously in front of the elevator.
“You’re here,” the doctor immediately greeted Fang Qiu as he saw him and opened his mouth, “oh, I forgot to introduce myself before. I’m Li Shan. Let’s go and I’ll brief you about it.”
Fang Qiu nodded, asking, “You look so worried. Is the patient your relative?”
“It’s my dad.” Li Shan nodded and said, “He accidentally broke his leg when he came downstairs in the afternoon. He’s over 60 now. And he has an important event to attend next week. It’s not a good time for surgery…”
As he spoke, Li Shan led Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu into a consulting room.
In the exam room, an amicable old man was lying on a hospital bed. His foot was broken, but he didn’t look painful.
However, as soon as Fang Qiu entered the door, the old man looked carefully at him from head to toe.
After gazing at him for a while, the old man asked, “Li Shan, is this the powerful Chinese Medicine doctor that you find for me?”
There was obviously some doubt in his words.
“I don’t know about his bonesetting skills yet, but I’m pretty sure he’s an amazing doctor,” Li Shan said.
“Ha-ha.” The old man laughed and said, “You are the first Chinese Medicine doctor that Li Shan looks up to. It seems that Chinese Medicine has a bright future. Come on, young man, show me what you got.”
Fang Qiu nodded, stepped forward, and began to examine the old man.
This time, he didn’t use his mental power. He used the Absolute Touch when he touched the old man’s leg, and the symptoms appeared in his mind.
It was indeed a comminuted fracture!
However, his injury was not so severe in terms of comminuted fracture. His leg fractured in four places. And some places were dislocated.
“If you want to set the bones, you may need some anesthetic. Although your injury is not so severe, it would be painful to treat with bonesetting techniques,” Fang Qiu said.
“No need.” The old man shook his head and turned to Li Shan. “Son, bring me the needle.”
Li Shan hurried to get him a needle.
Taking the needle, the old man pierced the needle on his leg twice.
“All right.” Then the old man smiled at Fang Qiu and said, “Young man, you can start.”
Fang Qiu was amazed.
He didn’t understand, because the old man didn’t pierce into an acupuncture point.
Could he really stop the pain by doing this?
Although he was confused, Fang Qiu didn’t ask.
He walked forward and started bonesetting.
Using the skilled techniques to set the main leg bones, Fang Qiu started to channel internal Qi to put the broken bones back together.
Because the old man’s fracture was not too serious, he didn’t have too many broken bones. For the sake of safety, Fang Qiu didn’t use his mental power but directly used the internal Qi.
While Fang Qiu was treating, the old man didn’t seem to feel the pain at all. Instead, he kept smiling and nodding to Fang Qiu as he was treating.
Fang Qiu was shocked by his reaction.
Soon, Fang Qiu finished his bonesetting.
He continued to use internal Qi to help the old man recover and ease the pain of bonesetting.
“All right.” Fang Qiu finished all his work.
“Hmm.” The old man nodded and asked with a smile, “Young man, is there any way that you can make my leg bone heal quickly, such as plaster?”
Fang Qiu suddenly thought of the method about healing bones which was recorded in the bonesetting theory.
He had made a minor achievement in terms of mental power.
Maybe he could have a try.
Thinking of this, Fang Qiu immediately reached out and placed his hands on the old man’s broken bones.
Using his mental power, he immediately saw inside the old man’s leg. Staring at the fracture on the leg bones, Fang Qiu started channeling his mental power.
“Heal, heal…” He repeated to himself.
As Fang Qiu was focusing all his energy on the old man’s broken bones, the healing of the old man’s bones actually accelerated.
Fang Qiu was surprised.
In fact, he thought that it was almost impossible to heal the bones with mental power. But now he actually did it himself. Although the bones didn’t fully recover, Fang Qiu did see the hope.
In the meantime, Fang Qiu continued his treatment.
Ten minutes later, Fang Qiu’s mental power gradually ran out as he didn’t dare to be distracted.
“Hiss… ” Taking a deep breath, he stopped.
With his present state of mental power, he was not able to heal the old man’s fracture at once. But it wouldn’t take long before he did.
“In this case, it would take another 10 days for the bones to fully heal,” Fang Qiu said.
When that came out, Li Shan was taken aback.
The old man on the bed was even more shocked!
“If you don’t mind, I’d like to take my dad to have a medical examination,” Li Shan said.
“Of course.” Fang Qiu nodded.
Li Shan then directly asked the nurse to take his father to the x-ray room.
After a while, the nurse pushed the old man back.
“Well done, young man, you did a great job. Thank you.”
As soon as the old man came back to the room, he immediately reached out and held Fang Qiu’s hand. He thanked him several times before he spoke, “I’m impressed. Every generation is always stronger than the last generation.”
“Not at all.” Fang Qiu replied humbly, “At least I don’t know the things that you’re capable of, such as the way to relieve the pain that you just did.”
“You want to learn that?” the old man asked, smiling.
“Yes.” Fang Qiu nodded directly.
“You can’t learn this unless you have a strong hand. My father can do it because he practices Kung Fu,” Li Shan said, pursing his lips.
“I have a strong hand, too,” Fang Qiu said.
Hearing what he said, the old man who had returned to his bed picked up an apple from the bedside table and gripped it.
“Ka-chow!” The apple crumbled.
“You need to have this kind of strength,” the old man said.
Fang Qiu smiled, went up to take an apple, and directly grasped it with a hand.
“Ka-chow!” The apple also crumbled.
“Interesting…” The old man froze for a while. Then he burst into laughter and said, “Come over tomorrow, and I’ll teach you!”
“Thank you.” Fang Qiu nodded, knowing that the old man needed to rest. So he said, “Please have a good rest. I should probably go.”
