“How could it be him?”
The woman lying on the bed in the ward looked dull.
She had no idea that Fang Qiu would be the miracle-working doctor who was being touted and had treated all the patients in the hospital!
In fact, she kicked Fang Qiu out this morning because of the money and because she didn’t trust him.
To her, Fang Qiu was just an inexperienced kid, a student. How could his status make him a bonesetting master?
But now she was stunned.
She really didn’t know Fang Qiu was so young but so skilled.
Now she was done!
Since she had offended Fang Qiu so many times, now what could she do to get Fang Qiu to treat her?
“Do you think he is willing to treat me for free if we beg him?” the woman asked, looking at her husband and brother in alarm.
As a result, both men gave a bitter smile simultaneously.
She had been pissing off Fang Qiu. Fang Qiu reluctantly came to the ward to see her but got kicked out. In this case, was it useful for her to beg him?
Obviously it was useless!
The woman’s face darkened, and she angrily uttered, “How can he give others free treatment while charging me for it?”
“Go and find him!”
With a wave of the hand, the woman ordered in an angry voice, “You go ask him now, ask him to cure my leg. If he wants money, promise him first. When he finishes treating me, I’ll tell him that my leg isn’t cured and even get worse. Then I don’t believe he’ll have the nerve to ask for money. Perhaps he’ll have to pay us!”
“Isn’t that bad, sister?” the young man asked in hesitation.
“What’s wrong with that?”
The woman snorted and urged, “Go, hurry up!”
Meanwhile, Fang Qiu, fresh out of room 6119, was about to enter room 6120 to greet Uncle Li when a shout came.
The cry rang out in the corridor.
Fang Qiu looked back and saw the young nurse calling patients for him in the orthopedic department pushing a hospital bed toward him.
On the bed lay a middle-aged man of about 40 years old.
“What’s the matter?”
Fang Qiu walked over right away.
“It’s an emergency.”
The nurse looked around, pushed the bed beside the wall, and said, “This is a patient from the emergency department. The chief told me to bring him straight here and let you treat him.”
At her words, Fang Qiu immediately went up to examine the patient.
At this moment, the elevator door opened and an old man with white hair and beard came out of the elevator.
Though his hair and beard suggested that he was very old, his face was rosy and he looked hale and hearty.
Without a crutch, the old man strode out of the elevator.
As soon as he got out of it, he saw Fang Qiu examining the patient.
At once he came to a halt.
“Is that the guy?”
Looking Fang Qiu up and down, the old man focused on his movements. And he found out that Fang Qiu was a very good checker.
After the examination, Fang Qiu smiled and said to the patient on the bed, “Sir, although both your legs are broken, you are not really badly hurt. I am setting bones for you, and I’ll put your legs in casts later. Then your legs will be recover after you recuperate for a few months.”
With that, Fang Qiu immediately started to set bones for the patient.
The old man standing by looked on with interest.
As a result, the old man’s eyes widened as soon as Fang Qiu started!
“How can that be?”
After one look at Fang Qiu’s bonesetting technique, the old man was shocked!
Because he saw that without any means or techniques, Fang Qiu put his hands on the patient’s leg bones and started moving naturally.
Fang Qiu knew which parts to move down an inch and which parts to move up half an inch. Anyway, he did it just right, as if he weren’t setting bones, but the bones themselves were echoing Fang Qiu’s hand and joining up naturally.
Shocked, the old man quickly rubbed his eyes and continued to look carefully.
This time, the old man confirmed Fang Qiu’s strength.
“This, this is the Friendly Realm!”
The shock grew on his face!
Theory of Bonesetting had mentioned that the outside world generally divided bonesetting into three realms—the Controlling Realm, the Friendly Realm, and the Conscious Realm!
In the Controlling Realm, one had perfectly mastered the characteristics of the bones on the human body. From the body shape, one could see what was wrong with the human bone and thus performed accurate bonesetting.
The Friendly Realm meant that one became the friend of the bones and united with them, thus achieving perfect bonesetting at will.
There was no doubt that Fang Qiu was in this realm right now!
“Friendly Realm, Friendly Realm, being friends with bones… How old is he?”
Shocked, the old man secretly took a breath, sighing, “Young as he is, he has reached the Friendly Realm. That’s too fast. When I was 50 years old, I reached this realm and before that, I had set bones for tens of thousands of cases. Has this guy of 17 or 18 reached this realm?”
At this point, Fang Qiu had finished setting the patient’s bones.
Then he asked the nurse to push the patient to have his legs in plaster and receive a transfusion.
Fang Qiu went on to other wards to treat patients.
The old man just kept standing nearby and watching Fang Qiu.
Every time Fang Qiu saw a patient, the old man sighed to himself.
At the end of the day, Fang Qiu saw all the patients in the wards but still wanted more.
The old man suddenly came over and called Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu turned around and saw the old man, slightly startled.
Before he could speak, the old man took a white jade card out of his pocket, handed it to Fang Qiu. Without saying anything, he simply tapped Fang Qiu on the shoulder and turned away.
Confused, Fang Qiu picked up the jade card and took a look.
He saw a bulging character “Bone” carved on the jade card.
The font was round and felt very good.
Confused, Fang Qiu turned over the jade card and immediately saw several words written on the back: The highly-skilled doctor certification!
Fang Qiu was shocked.
“Was that old man a highly-skilled doctor?”
“Then what does this jade card represent? Why did he give it to me?”
Inspired, Fang Qiu immediately pulled out his cell phone and called Xu Miaolin.
“What’s the matter?”
The phone went through and Xu Miaolin’s voice sounded.
“An old man gave me a jade card.”
Fang Qiu said, “There is a ‘Bone’ on the front of the jade card and the ‘The highly-skilled doctor certification’ engraved on the back.”
Xu Miaolin started and asked, “How did you get it?”
“The old man gave it to me.”
Fang Qiu frowned and told the story of giving free medical treatment at the hospital’s orthopedic department today. Finally he said that he had no idea why the old man suddenly appeared and gave him the jade card.
After listening to this, Xu Miaolin smiled and said, “This jade card is a recognition of your strength. You have to be certified by highly-skilled doctors to be a highly-skilled doctor. That means you have to get enough jade cards to become a highly-skilled doctor.”
Fang Qiu was surprised.
“You’re really great. So soon you’ve got a jade card.”
Xu Miaolin grinned and asked, “What did the person who gave you the jade card look like?”
“It’s an old man with white hair and a white beard,” Fang Qiu replied.
Xu Miaolin laughed and uttered, “Just as I thought. This jade card is really given by Yi Banxian.”
Fang Qiu paused.
Xu Miaolin nodded and explained, “Yi Banxian is the best bonesetting doctor of all the highly-skilled doctors. In his lifetime, he has set the bones of tens of thousands of people. His strength is even more surprising. There is no bone that he cannot set.”
“He’s so excellent?”
Fang Qiu exulted and then broke into a wry smile. “But he didn’t say a word to me. He gave me the jade card and went away.”
“Can’t you see that?”
Xu Miaolin said, “He must be speechless. What do you want him to say?”
“Doesn’t it make him look weak by complimenting you?”
Fang Qiu laughed wryly at that.
“You guy have rare good fortune.”
Xu Miaolin sighed and said, “You have to keep that jade card. It’s not worth much, but if you lose it, it’s gone.”
Fang Qiu nodded while answering.
At that moment, the door of room 6120 opened and Jiang Miaoyu came out and asked, “Who were you talking to?”
Jiang Miaoyu didn’t follow Fang Qiu but chatted with Uncle Li at Li Shan’s invitation because the ward was a little cramped.
Fang Qiu grinned and flashed his jade card to Jiang Miaoyu.
Jiang Miaoyu took the jade card from Fang Qiu and asked curiously, “What is this?”
“The highly-skilled doctor certification!”
Fang Qiu laughed.
Jiang Miaoyu was startled.
As a member of a family of traditional Chinese acupuncture practitioners, she knew the importance of the highly-skilled doctor certification and how difficult it was to get it.
But she didn’t expect Fang Qiu to get it!
Holding the jade card, Jiang Miaoyu was shocked to flip it to see.
Although she had heard of it, it was the first time she had seen it.
After watching it, Jiang Miaoyu gave the jade card back to Fang Qiu with a strange face.
She was both happy for Fang Qiu and resentful. Why was Fang Qiu so excellent that he could get a highly-skilled doctor certification?
Just then, there was a sudden rush of footsteps.
Fang Qiu looked around and saw the brash woman’s brother and husband running toward him.
Fang Qiu’s face darkened when he saw them.
Running up to him, the young man said, “Please, treat my sister.”
“We can pay.”
The middle-aged man quickly added, “As long as you can cure my wife, you can ask for any amount of money.”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “Let’s go.”
With that, a group of people walked to room 6115.
When these people entered the ward, not far away, the old man with white hair and a white beard took the elevator and entered room 6120.
“You’ve seen him?” asked Uncle Li, laughing from his hospital bed, as the old man entered his ward.
“You’re making me uncomfortable, old man, aren’t you?”
The old man cast Uncle Li an angry glance, pursing his lips, and asked, “Where did you get this genius?”
“What do you mean?” asked Uncle Li.
“What do I mean?”
The old man snorted and said, “I’ve given him my jade card. What do I mean?”
Uncle Li straightened up with a start and looked at the old man in amazement, asking, “Is that guy so excellent?”
