Chapter 457 I Think There Might Be Ginseng!
Changing another direction, Fang Qiu started wandering in the forest.
The PD and the VJ had been following him.
As a result, it didn’t take long before Fang Qiu found three more kinds of medicinal herbs.
They were speechless about Fang Qiu’s luck.
The PD certainly knew that apart from the so-called luck, Fang Qiu’s insight was also particularly strong. Any herbs hiding in any place could be found out by Fang Qiu.
While he was walking, he suddenly found someone he was familiar with right in front of him. “Eh?”
It was Jiang Miaoyu.
At this moment, Jiang Miaoyu was looking around the ground carefully, exploring herbs everywhere.
Fang Qiu pondered for a while. He immediately thought of the online comments of netizens vying for Jiang Miaoyu before, and felt that it was the right time that he came to declare his position of being Jiang’s boyfriend. “That’s great.”
Then he instantly walked towards Jiang Miaoyu. “Miaoyu.”
Stepping forward, Fang Qiu waved and called out her name.
Jiang Miaoyu looked up. The moment she saw Fang Qiu, she immediately put on a smile.
The weather in May was particularly hot. Jiang Miaoyu was sweating because of climbing the mountain for a while.
“Take your time. Don’t worry,” Fang Qiu said. When approaching her, Fang Qiu reached out and helped wipe the sweat from her face. Then he took out a bottle of his own mineral water, uncapped it, and handed it to Jiang Miaoyu, asking, “How many herbs have you found?”
Jiang Miaoyu took the bottle and had a sip of water, and then replied, “This forest is too big. I only picked two kinds of herbs. What about you?”
Fang Qiu turned around and showed Jiang Miaoyu his basket. “Here. I think it’s about seven kinds.”
Jiang Miaoyu asked in surprise, “Ah? That many?”
Fang Qiu smiled smugly and said, “Ha-ha. Would you like me to help you with cheating?”
After he finished his words, the PD next to him and the other one next to Jiang Miaoyu along with Jiang Miaoyu herself were speechless.
Could anyone talk about cheating so bluntly?
Jiang Miaoyu rolled her eyes at Fang Qiu. “Can’t you say it secretly?”
“Oh.” Fang Qiu took a look at the two PDs, and then acted like he just came to the realization and whispered to Jiang Miaoyu’s ear, “May I help you cheat?”
Jiang Miaoyu snorted and said righteously, “Humph! Cheating is wrong. As a student at the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, I will not cheat.”
Fang Qiu smiled immediately and said, “I knew it. The people at our university are all righteous!”
The PDs were completely speechless.
They knew the two were from the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, and they were the only ones left.
Although they were both competent, they were still recording the show here. Could they just brag about themselves in front of the cameras?
The most important thing was that they still boast about themselves after they said something about cheating. It was the first time that the PDs met people like them.
Jiang Miaoyu said, “Well, time is passing by. I need to continue to look for herbs.”
Fang Qiu said with a smile, “All right. Go for it.”
However, at this very moment. “No! Something bad happened!”
An exclamation was heard suddenly. “Is anyone nearby? Come here and help!”
Hearing the shout, Fang Qiu was worried.
He turned around and followed the voice.
Jiang Miaoyu frowned. “What happened?”
Fang Qiu said and stepped forward immediately. “Something might have gone wrong. Let’s go and have a look.”
Then he ran immediately in the direction of the sound.
Jiang Miaoyu, and their PDs and VJs, followed closely behind.
Fang Qiu ran all the way in the forest.
Soon, after running around a few trees, Fang Qiu saw from a distance that a girl was sitting on the ground with her back against the trunk and a little pale face.
Her PD and VJ both looked anxious.
Fang Qiu ran forward and ask, “What happened?”
The girl’s PD said immediately, “She was stung by a bee.”
Fang Qiu immediately went up to the girl. “Let me see it.”
The girl’s neck had been swollen with a lump which was about the size of a thumb, and she seemed to start to blister.
Jiang Miaoyu rushed to ask, “Is it serious?”
Fang Qiu opened his mouth. “Minor sting. Judging from the wound, it should be stung by the hornet. The toxin has not spread because it didn’t take long.”
The girl’s PD suddenly panicked. “Is it poisonous?”
Fang Qiu smiled and said, “It’s okay, don’t worry. Let me help her.”
After that, he turned around and looked for something.
Then he immediately ran away and picked up a dandelion on a sunny hillside a few meters away. He squeezed the juice from the plant directly with his hands and applied it to the girl’s wound.
Then he scooped some yellow and reddish dirt on the spot, let Jiang Miaoyu pour some mineral water to it, mixed them and stirred them into a thick slurry, and then applied it to the girl’s wound.
After doing all this, Fang Qiu smiled and said, “All right. Don’t mind the dirt. It’s an old-fashioned method. Do not wash the mud at the wound today. Just leave it until tomorrow. I’m sure that you will not have the symptoms of swelling, pain, and fever by then.”
The girl said, “Thank you.”
Fang Qiu smiled at her.
Everyone around was finally relieved.
The eyes of the PD who had been following Fang Qiu flashed.
This was definitely a piece of good material.
During the competition, Fang Qiu showed his skill and healed the sting wound.
If this scene was put into the show, he was sure that it could cause topical discussion.
Besides, this was also teaching everyone how to deal with bee stings.
It was like killing two birds with one stone.
Fang Qiu asked, “Where did this hornet come from?”
The girl pointed to a spot. “Up there.”
There was a football-sized hive hanging on a tree’s branch.
Fang Qiu then said, “Move away. I’ll remove this hive.”
Jiang Miaoyu was startled and grabbed Fang Qiu’s arm, saying, “What? You don’t have any tools. How can you get it? Besides, these are hornets. They are all poisonous. It’s fine if you just encounter one or two of them. But if you’re stung by a crowd of hornets, it will cause a toxic reaction all over your body.”
The PD also hurried forward to stop him and said, “Don’t be impulsive. This is not a joke. If something should happen to you, how can we continue to record this show?”
Jiang Miaoyu’s PD said, “He’s right. Don’t take the risk. I’ll call to report the position and let the staff come here.”
The PD of the girl who got stung also quickly persuaded, “Yeah, forget it. This has already hurt one person. If you are injured too, doesn’t it seem that our show crew is amateur? The director will be angry.”
Fang Qiu shook his head and said, “It’s all right. Now it’s too late to call the staff. Everyone has come into the forest for a long while. Everyone has climbed the mountain and sweated. This hornet is particularly sensitive to the smell of sweat. If you don’t take this hive away now, other people will surely be stung when passing by.”
After saying that, Fang Qiu disregarded everyone’s persuasion and immediately rushed forward to climb the tree.
When he got close to the hive, he grabbed the hive with his bare hands without any precautions.
Everyone was taken aback as they saw it.
Jiang Miaoyu shouted in fright. “No!”
Fang Qiu looked back and cast Jiang Miaoyu a reassuring look, saying, “Don’t worry, I’m fine. These hornets won’t sting me.”
He then grabbed the hive with one hand, jumped down directly from the tree, then immediately ran towards the outside of the forest.
Seeing this, his VJ immediately followed up.
As a result, he couldn’t keep up with him. He could only use the lens to shoot the back of Fang Qiu from a distance.
In fact, when Fang Qiu caught the hive, he had completely covered his palm with internal Qi.
Therefore, it was not that the hornets wouldn’t sting him, but they failed to do it.
Under the suppression of internal Qi, these hornets dared not get close to Fang Qiu, let alone stinging him.
Fang Qiu grabbed the hive with his right hand and ran, followed by a large group of hornets that could not catch up with him at all.
After all, it was less than three kilometers away.
Soon, Fang Qiu ran to the outside of the forest, where the show’s crew was.
Seeing Fang Qiu carrying a large hive, Director Li Huawen was suddenly taken aback.
The other staff jumped to the side in a hurry, panicking, and did not dare to approach him.
As he ran to an empty place, Fang Qiu put the hive on the ground.
“You guys deal with it. I’ll continue to collect my medicinal herbs,” he said to Director Li Huawen, then he ran away to go back to the forest.
After a while, Fang Qiu returned.
Seeing Fang Qiu’s return, Jiang Miaoyu who was worried sick immediately trotted to greet him. “Did you hurt?”
As soon as Fang Qiu stopped, she immediately grabbed Fang Qiu’s hands and began to examine them carefully.
After making sure that he wasn’t injured, Jiang Miaoyu let out a sigh of relief and glared at Fang Qiu, saying, “Why are you so reckless? What should we do if you are stung? And we’re recording a show here. Don’t you think you will misinform the audience?”
“Er… I’m sorry,” Fang Qiu said. Then he scratched his head, turned back awkwardly, and said to three cameras, “Because I have a special body condition and I’ve never been stung by a bee since I was a kid, I dare to do it. It’s very dangerous if anyone else does it, so please don’t imitate me!”
Jiang Miaoyu said, “I’m going to collect my medicinal herbs.”
“Yes. Let’s split up.” Fang Qiu smiled.
Fang Qiu then nodded to the girl who got stung, and then said to Jiang Miaoyu, “Come on! I’ll be waiting.”
Jiang Miaoyu nodded and then left. “Okay.”
“I haven’t walked here yet. I just heard the sound of water here. There should be a stream. Let’s take a look there.” After they left, Fang Qiu pointed to a direction, said a few words to the camera, and then moved forward.
Fang Qiu found more herbs as he walked there.
Unfortunately, only two of them weren’t the same as the herbs he had found before.
However, he got nine kinds of herbs now.
Not long after the start of the competition, he had already found half of the herbs.
His PD and VJ didn’t know what to say.
Along the way, Fang Qiu was so smooth that he could find herbs everywhere, and most of them didn’t repeat. His luck really made them feel unbelievable.
“This place has not been developed yet. Looking at the terrain, I think there should be wild ginseng in this area,” Fang Qiu said while walking. Then he immediately turned his head to look at the PD and asked, “If I do dig the wild ginseng, can I offset the nine medicinal herbs that I haven’t found yet?”
The PD immediately shook his head and said, “Of course not! Besides, there won’t be wild ginseng here. Even if there is, it will be scooped by others long ago. How come it will still be here and wait for you to take it?”
Fang Qiu smiled and said confidently, “Not necessarily. Let’s wait and see. I’ll get one.”
