Everything was ready.
After Feng Xuexin left, Fang Qiu immediately put on a mask and began to see patients according to the show’s requirements.
A short while later, the first patient came in.
“Oh.” As soon as the patient entered the door, he stopped. Looking at Fang Qiu who was wearing a mask, he said excitedly, “Dr. Fang, you’re back?”
Fang Qiu shook his head and waved his hand hurriedly. “No, I’m not Fang Qiu. I’m just here to watch the clinic for Feng Xuexin.”
“Stop pretending. I know you’re. It’s not like we’ve never seen each other before.”
As he spoke, the patient ran to the consultation table and sat down, directly snatching away the book and pen which Fang Qiu was going to use to write a prescription. Then he handed them to Fang Qiu with a smile and said, “We are old friends. Dr. Fang, please give me a signature!”
Fang Qiu felt helpless.
He signed with a wry smile and then treated the patient.
After seeing the patient and giving the prescription, the patient took Fang Qiu’s signature and said with a smile, “Dr. Xiao Fang, you can rest assured that I will definitely pass your signature to my son in the future and keep it as a family heirloom.”
Fang Qiu was speechless and also felt he was funny.
After that, there came the second patient, the third patient, and the fourth patient. Every person who came into the clinic recognized Fang Qiu.
Seeing this situation, the PD was going crazy.
He was helpless. The program especially looked for those towns where people didn’t know much about the show so that the contestants of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor would forget about fame and wealth. Thus, they would never forget why they started and could just focus on treating patients.
But he didn’t expect this Qimen Town that had been arranged for Fang Qiu was merely like Fang Qiu’s birthplace.
“Fang Qiu, how famous are you in this place?” The PD felt so bitter but he didn’t ask out loud.
As the first few patients left, the news of Dr. Xiao Fang’s return spread in the town.
Last year, Dr. Xiao Fang’s reputation had thoroughly spread after Fang Qiu left the town because the patients that Fang Qiu had treated were all cured.
Therefore, the people in the town often came to ask Feng Xuexin whether Dr. Xiao Fang came back or not. They didn’t see Fang Qiu after asking Feng Xuexin for half a year.
But when everyone no longer thought about Fang Qiu, Fang Qiu came back unexpectedly.
The most important thing was although Qimen Town was a little remote, they got everything they needed here. Although they couldn’t see Channel 3 of Central Television here, there were other television stations.
Everyone saw on TV that Dr. Xiao Fang was the doctor who cured cancer, which made Fang Qiu more famous.
As soon as the news of Dr. Xiao Fang’s return spread, those who didn’t feel well in this small town immediately ran to the clinic.
It didn’t take long for the clinic to be crowded with people.
Instead of seeing the doctor, it was simply like an autograph meeting of a famous star!
“Well, why do we still need those covert cameras?” In the clinic, the VJ said to the PD, “I think we can just shoot it directly.”
Looking at the situation in front of him, the PD felt troubled as well.
He didn’t dare to hesitate and hurried to make a phone call to Li Huawen.
Soon, the phone was connected.
“Hello?” Director Li Huawen’s voice was heard.
“Director, I think we can’t continue to shoot here.”
The PD said bitterly, “There are too many people here who know Fang Qiu. Just after a while, almost all the people in the town have come to the clinic. There are patients who want to see a doctor, someone who wants an autograph, and even someone who wants to take a photo with Fang Qiu. It’s so hard for us to film anything.”
Director Li Huawen replied, “I saw it.”
“What?” Upon hearing that, the PD was stunned.
Director Li Huawen said, “You heard me. I’m right outside your clinic.”
At this time, there was a car of the show group parked on the street outside the clinic. Director Li Huawen was standing in front of the car door and looking at the Puji Clinic surrounded by numerous people in shock.
As for Director Li Huawen, there was no doubt that Fang Qiu contributed the most to the show. It could be said that without Fang Qiu, the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor wouldn’t be one of the most popular shows now.
Therefore, Li Huawen was very clear that all the selling points of the show were on Fang Qiu. In order to achieve the ratings he expected in the next two episodes, he must come over and keep an eye on Fang Qiu all the time. It was best to dig some attractive points from Fang Qiu.
Therefore, he came with this idea in mind.
However, seeing so many people surrounding the clinic, Director Li Huawen couldn’t help but be dumbfounded.
“No, we can’t leave it like this.” Director Li Huawen quickly shook his head and said, “Ask all the staff to come to have a meeting immediately. What kind of show can we record if things go on like this? Hurry up and find another place.”
In just one morning, the plan of seeing a patient with a mask on Fang Qiu was completely ruined. Under the influence of numerous people in Qimen Town, Fang Qiu was so busy giving his autographs and taking photos.
Before Feng Xuexin and his wife arrived in the city, they received a call from the show’s crew and were called back to the clinic.
After Fang Qiu had seen all the patients in the queue with great difficulty, he had no time to rest. Director Li Huawen grabbed him to hide in the backyard.
In the afternoon, Feng Xuexin and his wife came back.
“You guys are too torturous, aren’t you?” As soon as he came back, Feng Xuexin complained to Fang Qiu, “Your sister-in-law is pregnant. What are you doing? It’s not easy for us to go out and have fun. As a result, we just spent all the time traveling in the car.”
“There’s nothing I can do.” Fang Qiu shrugged with a wry smile on his face.
“Alas. Just as I expected, there’s nothing good going to happen after becoming famous.” Feng Xuexin continued to complain with dissatisfaction.
“As for you, it’s not a good thing, right?” Fang Qiu shook his head and smiled.
“It’s certainly not a good thing for me.” Feng Xuexin rolled his eyes at Fang Qiu and said, “Look, my perfect travel plan with your sister-in-law has been totally ruined. If you want to leave, hurry up. Don’t let me see you again. You won’t do any good for me as soon as you come here.”
Fang Qiu was speechless.
The PD came over and said to Fang Qiu, “Then, let’s go.” Then he turned to Feng Xuexin and said, “I’m so sorry to disturb you. Our show will cover the fare for your trip this time.”
“Go, go, go.” Feng Xuexin nodded and waved his hand to Fang Qiu. He didn’t show any dislike on his face. Instead, he showed a little reluctance.
Fang Qiu said, “Let’s go then.”
As he spoke, they turned around and left with Director Li Huawen.
Just as the two of them walked out of the backyard and were about to pass through the clinic to get on the car, “Swoosh swoosh…”
Outside the door, the crowd of onlookers suddenly separated. A boy, about seventeen years old and looked like a student, rushed in from outside the crowd and immediately knelt down when he saw Fang Qiu in a panic.
Fang Qiu and Li Huawen were shocked when they heard the sound of his knees hitting on the ground.
They saw that the boy’s eyes were red. When he knelt down on the ground, he almost cried out. He stared at Fang Qiu and begged, “Please, save my father, please save my father!”
At the same time, the tears in the boy’s eyes couldn’t help but roll down instantly.
Seeing this, Fang Qiu hurried forward and stopped the crying boy who was begging him and even ready to kowtow.
At this time, the discussion of the people next to him was heard.
“Alas, this child is so pathetic.”
“Yeah. I heard that he just went to college this year. Although he didn’t let his father down, his father went everywhere to do laboring jobs in order to support him to go to college. As a result, he got stomach cancer and was afraid of spending money, so he didn’t tell his son all the time. He didn’t tell his son until his son finished the college entrance examination. By the time he went to do the physical examination, he was already in the terminal stage of cancer.”
“Yes, I heard that the kid’s father refused to let the doctor treat him no matter what they said. He didn’t want to spend any money, so he went home right after the examination was over.”
“What a rough life!”
Hearing everyone’s discussion, Fang Qiu frowned.
Fang Qiu said to the boy, “Get up, please. I’ll go and have a look with you.”
Upon hearing that, the boy quickly stood up. As he wiped the tears on his face, he grabbed Fang Qiu’s arm and ran away.
Next to him, Li Huawen paused. He then turned his head quickly and motioned for the VJ who had been following Fang Qiu to catch up.
In Li Huawen’s eyes, this was great material for the show.
Although the video of Fang Qiu curing cancer had spread throughout the network, it would definitely become a good topic if Fang Qiu cured cancer again in the show.
The most important thing was that, in addition to showing the strong Chinese Medicine skills of Fang Qiu this time, there was also a touching story that would definitely move the audience.
Wasn’t this the routine of most variety shows?
However, in this show, this was not a trick, but a purely natural one!
After the VJ caught up with them, Director Li Huawen quickly followed up as well.
Soon, under the lead of the boy, Fang Qiu came to a small courtyard.
The courtyard was surrounded by fences made of tree branches, and there was a one-floor house in the courtyard, looking desolate.
Although the grounds in the courtyard were not confined, they were covered in dirt. It was clear that they did not have the money to decorate this place.
Running all the way into the house, Fang Qiu turned to have a look.
There were two rooms and a narrow living room in this one-floor house. The boy took Fang Qiu’s hand to the room on the left.
This room was also very small. After a bed was set down, there was only a walkway less than one meter wide.
At this time, a middle-aged man was lying on the bed with his eyes closed.
The boy said, “Dad, I’ve invited someone here for you. He will definitely cure you.”
On the bed, the middle-aged man frowned, then opened his eyes and looked at the boy. After glancing at Fang Qiu and the others who followed in, he said, “Silly boy, don’t spend money recklessly. No one can cure this disease. You have to keep the money to go to college. Do you hear me?”
“No, I won’t!” The boy’s eyes turned red again, and he said, “Dad, I’d rather cure your disease than go to college.”
“My illness can’t be cured.” The middle-aged man smiled with comfort. His voice was not loud, giving people a feeling that he seemed to have no strength.
“It can be cured. You’ll definitely get well soon!”
The boy turned around while shouting. He grabbed Fang Qiu’s hand and said, “I invited the most powerful doctor across the country, a doctor who can cure cancer. He is Fang Qiu. You mentioned Dr. Xiao Fang so many times. He must be able to cure your illness.”
The middle-aged man said to Fang Qiu with a smile, “Dr. Xiao Fang, this kid is not sensible. Don’t take it to heart.”
“Don’t worry. Let me see you first.” Fang Qiu nodded with a smile, then went forward and began to feel his pulse.
