Chapter 426 Jiang Miaoyu’s Meeting with Her Master
As the host called the name, a young man with big eyes, who looked particularly energetic and wore fashionable sportswear, got up and went to the challenge stage.
Below the stage, people were talking.
Gu Shaoyu was the son of the Gu family of Jiangdong—one of the four prominent families.
This name and even the family name alone was enough to attract everyone’s attention.
“Gu Shaoyu is good at using finger needles.”
After a brief introduction, the competition began.
Like Leng Wenzhuo, Gu Shaoyu from one of the four well-known families also defeated his opponent in a second without hesitation.
Following them were Li Sanxiao, who was good at herbal medicine from the Li family of Huainan, and Chen Ziju, who was good at scraping and cupping therapies from the Chen family of Luoxi.
These two people were also ridiculously strong.
They still chose opponents at random and defeated them in a second.
Everyone present was shocked.
Although the four prominent families were very famous, no one expected that their family members could be so powerful.
However, the four people were far from alone.
A person named Luo Jie also attracted everyone’s attention, because he wanted to challenge the people from the four families first and then challenge Fang Qiu, but he didn’t expect that they were all chosen ahead of him.
This person’s questions were quite strange, and his opponent couldn’t understand them at all.
The best part was the duel between the other two.
One was Wang Shijie, and the other was Yang Hutao.
Both of them passed the preliminary with full marks, and they were both very strong. Moreover, Yang Hutao was still a student.
Before that, when everyone was studying their opponents, they had already studied the two.
They found that both of them were very strong, so they habitually left them aside and didn’t choose any of them.
To their surprise, the two actually met!
The duel began.
Everyone paid special attention to them.
Both of their questions were very difficult to answer, and many people present could not give the correct answers.
However, a few minutes later, both of them answered the three questions correctly and walked into the safe zone together.
The competition continued.
Strangely, in the following matches, there were actually several embarrassing situations in which both contestants were eliminated in a row.
In the end, the number of people eliminated in the first round exceeded the expected number of 50, reaching 59.
The 41 people who entered the safe zone were all confirmed to advance to the next round.
To gather another nine people, the 59 people in the elimination zone began to enter the second round of the competition and answered the questions in the one-to-one fashion to determine the final nine contestants who would go to the next round.
The competition didn’t end until three o ‘clock in the afternoon.
In the end, Zhang Yalong, who was defeated by Jiang Miaoyu, also successfully advanced to the next round. When he entered the promotion zone, he deliberately glanced at Fang Qiu, as if to tell Fang Qiu that he would revenge himself on him!
“The recording is over.”
The director turned off the cameras.
He stood up and shouted to everyone with a megaphone, “The next recording will be held two weeks later. Then, the program will record the third episode, eliminating 20 people out of 50, and the fourth episode, eliminating 10 people out of 30. The program group will inform you next week about the specific rules and time of the competition.
“You’ve all worked hard.”
Director Li Huawen bowed to everyone and said, “There are drinks and mineral water for everyone. When you leave, you can take one bottle with you.”
Hearing that, everyone left in a neat procession.
When they left, there was special staff to distribute water.
As a result, everyone wanted mineral water and no drinks.
After all, they were all doctors of Chinese medicine.
For them, there were all kinds of additives in the drinks, so they were indeed not as healthy as mineral water.
When they left, there were those who were happy, and there were those who were disappointed.
Because the promotion zone was far away from the exit to the stage, Fang Qiu and the other 49 contestants who advanced to another round were left at the end.
Seeing that the people present were nearly gone, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu got up and prepared to leave.
But at this moment, a woman’s emotionless voice came.
Turning back, Fang Qiu found that it was Leng Wenzhuo.
“Hello, what’s the matter?” Fang Qiu asked with a smile.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
Leng Wenzhuo directly reached out her hand and said, “You are very strong, but I wish I could see you more powerful. I also hope that by the time we get to the next recording, you will not hesitate to teach me.”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu hesitated for a moment and glanced at Jiang Miaoyu beside him. After getting permission, he shook hands with her.
“Wow, not bad.”
After Leng Wenzhuo left, Jiang Miaoyu grabbed Fang Qiu’s arm and said, “You’ve only met a few times, but this kind of cold-faced beauty has come to you voluntarily. It seems that our Master Fang is quite popular among women.”
Fang Qiu chuckled and said, “If I am unpopular with women, will it not prove that you have bad taste?”
Jiang Miaoyu was stunned. She rolled her eyes at Fang Qiu and said, “You’re a good talker.”
As she spoke, the two walked out of the promotion zone.
However, they were immediately stopped by several people.
They looked up and found that these people were from the other three families except for the Leng family.
The three of them shook hands with Fang Qiu one by one, saying that Fang Qiu was very awesome and they wanted to have a good fight with him.
Obviously, after today’s competition, the juniors of the four families had already recognized Fang Qiu’s strength, but it was just recognition, far from admiration.
Then, in this recording, Luo Jie, Wang Shijie, and Yang Hutao—the three who had successfully attracted everyone’s attention, also came to Fang Qiu and said the same thing to him.
After the disturbance, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu were left at the end.
“I wouldn’t know if I didn’t come here. I didn’t find out until I came here that there are really a lot of talents in the field of traditional Chinese medicine.”
Jiang Miaoyu sighed with emotion. “I used to think that I was already very powerful. I didn’t realize there were so many people who were as good as me or even better than me. None of the 50 people who made it to the next round are incompetent. They are all very strong.”
“Well, they are all experts.”
Fang Qiu nodded in agreement.
As they spoke, they were ready to leave.
At this time, a shout suddenly came.
The two turned their heads.
They found that Li Zhengtang had not yet left.
Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu immediately greeted him.
Li Zhengtang nodded with a smile and said, “I didn’t expect you to be Fang Qiu. No wonder you’re so skilled in bonesetting.”
“Uh, I seem to have forgotten to introduce myself to you,” Fang Qiu said awkwardly.
“Haha, now I know.”
Li Zhengtang laughed, and then asked, “This recording is over. You won’t stay in the capital all the time, will you?”
Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu nodded.
“When are you going back?” Li Zhengtang asked.
“Tomorrow,” answered Fang Qiu.
Li Zhengtang nodded and said, “Well, come to my house tonight. I’ll introduce you to an expert in acupuncture.”
Hearing that, Jiang Miaoyu was surprised.
Li Zhengtang had mentioned it before, but there had been little progress. She didn’t expect the surprise to come out of the blue today.
“Okay, I’m sorry to bother you, Uncle Li.” Fang Qiu thanked him.
“I’m just returning the favor.”
Li Zhengtang smiled and said, “All right, you go back first. The studio is stuffy. Get out of here for a breath. When I get home later, I’ll ask Li Shan to send you my home address.”
On the other side, the recording of the second episode ended.
The program group also began to work overtime to start editing.
After all, time was tight and the task was heavy.
The week after next, the official broadcast was about to begin, and these were the first and second episodes. In any case, the two episodes must be edited well enough and exciting for they had to gain popularity for the whole show!
In the evening, after receiving Li Shan’s text message, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu went out to buy some fruit and came to Li Zhengtang’s house.
Surprisingly, Li Zhengtang’s house was quite big.
It was more than 150 square meters, and the living room was quite broad.
Although it was not a popular area, the price of such a house in the capital city was not low. After all, Li Zhengtang was a native of the capital city. If his family didn’t even have a house, how did his previous generations make a living?
When Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu arrived, Li Shan greeted them at the door.
As soon as they entered the door, the two were warmly received. Li Shan’s mother, in particular, even held Jiang Miaoyu to talk endlessly.
They chatted for more than ten minutes in the living room.
The doorbell rang.
“Wait a second.”
Li Zhengtang, who was sitting in the wheelchair, chuckled.
Then, Li Shan went to open the door.
In came a woman of about thirty.
The woman had a very delicate oval face and looked especially dazzling. She was also in great shape, and even the way she was dressed made anyone unable to look away at first glance.
But the strange thing was that the woman had an aloof air about her.
Her temperament was much colder than that of Leng Wenzhuo, but it did not give people a feeling of being heartless and otherworldly.
“Come on, come on, the protagonist is here.”
Li Zhengtang smiled and said, “Let me introduce her to you. Her name is Chu Yunyun.”
Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu looked at each other and got up immediately.
“This boy’s name is Fang Qiu, and this little girl’s name is Jiang Miaoyu.”
Li Zhengtang introduced Jiang Miaoyu to Chu Yunyun. “Jiang is a very good child and a rare talent. I called you here today to introduce a disciple to you.”
Chu Yunyun nodded.
Then, from head to toe, she began to observe Jiang Miaoyu.
On the phone, Li Zhengtang had already told her the background of Jiang Miaoyu and the purpose of inviting her here. Therefore, Chu Yunyun was not surprised when she heard that Jiang Miaoyu was the disciple that Li Zhengtang introduced to her.
“There was something wrong with the food I ate today, which caused acute diarrhea, accompanied by symptoms such as rib distention and borborygmus,” Chu Yunyun said directly.
Hearing that, Jiang Miaoyu knew that it was an examination.
Immediately, she opened her mouth and replied, “Choose Tianshu, Liangqiu, Upper Juxu, Lower Juxu, and Yinlingquan to match with Ganshu, Chengman, Xingjian acupoint, and the main acupuncture point. Then insert and twist the needles with high frequency and small amplitude until the gas in the stomach is expelled. After that, apply the mild reinforcing-reducing method. Keep the needles in the body for 15-20 minutes and exchange needles every 5 minutes.”
Hearing that, Chu Yunyun said, “Her foundation is quite solid. Not bad.”
Then she turned to glance at Fang Qiu and asked Li Zhengtang, “Is this the junior you laud?”
Li Zhengtang nodded immediately and said, “Anyway, I’ve never seen anyone better than him.”
Chu Yunyun turned her head, looked at Fang Qiu expressionlessly, and asked, “What can you do?”
“Bonesetting, acupuncture, classical prescription, and moxibustion,” answered Fang Qiu.
Hearing that, Chu Yunyun was stunned, and then her cold face suddenly became anxious.
