Chapter 120: Look Down On Someone
“Then you should go enroll yourself in Shu Medical University. The dean of Shu Medical University in Emperor District was my comrade-in-arms. If you wish for this, I can let you study there without taking the entrance exam,” Leng Jinpeng decided on the spot.
As the main approver of the marriage report, Leng Jinpeng had investigated Zhong Nuannuan. He knew she would never get accepted into Shu Medical University in Emperor District with her results.
It was still alright if she was not an academic achiever. If her medical skills were not good enough, she could be the receptionist or the administrator in the military base’s hospital. Or perhaps she could do nothing and just stay at home. As long as she’s not an actress, he could justify himself to the old general.
Nevertheless, Zhong Nuannuan was unwilling to settle for this. “Commander in chief, you’re looking down on me. Would you believe that I could pass the exam of Shu Medical Hospital in Emperor District with the highest mark even without you pulling strings for me?”
Leng Jinpeng was amused by Zhong Nuannuan’s determination. He did not approve of this girl before. However, Chi Yang liked her and she was the only girl that he had ever fallen for. Thus, for the sake of the Chi Family bloodline, he could only compromise.
However, now, he was growing fonder of Zhong Nuannuan.
“I think I can be considered Chi Yang’s uncle. If you can get yourself admitted to Shu Medical University with your results, Uncle Leng will give you a present. You can choose anything you like as long as I can afford it. What do you say?”
“It’s fine.” Zhong Nuannuan rejected without even batting an eyelid.
Leng Jinpeng raised an eyebrow. He did not expect someone to reject his present.
“We don’t have to bet on something that I know that I can do. You said you’re Chi Yang’s uncle, so I won’t take advantage of you. If you really want to give me something, just buy it as you see fit. I’ll like anything you give me. so don’t worry.”
“Hahaha. Are you really that confident?” Leng Jinpeng was becoming even more fond of Zhong Nuannuan’s personality.
“Uncle Leng, since you’re Chi Yang’s uncle, I won’t be an outsider with you and will tell you honestly: my medical skills are amazing.”
After noticing Leng Jinpeng’s doubtfulness, Zhong Nuannuan said, “Uncle Leng, look at you. Your face is dark and gloomy. When you speak to me, I can see that there’s a hint of purple at the tip of your tongue. Your face is dark and there’s a copper tone to it. For other people who don’t understand, they’d just think that it’s normal to be so tan since you’re soldiers. However, comparing your skin with Chi Yang, yours does not share the same luster nor elasticity as your skin is dry and coarse. It’s grey and ashy around your eyes, and you have telangiectasia on your face.
“I don’t need to read your pulse to know that you have severe stomach and liver diseases. I can tell only from your face. Your gastritis is severe and your liver is at the cirrhosisstage . Uncle Leng, am I right?”
Zhong Nuannuan’s words shocked the three men. Even Chi Yang, who knew she had learned from a Chinese physician, was shocked.
This were the results Leng Jinpeng had gotten when he went for a follow up in the the military base hospital last week.
After taking medicine for half a year, his condition did not get better. The military base’s hospital had asked him to stay in the hospital but Leng Jinpeng vehemently refused.
“I didn’t tell her about you,” Chi Yang said immediately when he saw Leng Jinpeng looking at him.
Until then, he only knew that his wife had learned Chinese medicine . However, he did not expect her to already reach this level.
After listening to Chi Yang, Leng Jinpeng and Qu MIngyi were even more surprised.
She could deduce his condition just by looking at him. How could this be explained by ‘good medical skills’? This was a superb artistic achievement!
