Doctor Qi thought his identity was well hidden. Everyone was in the dark about who he was except for Su Erya, because she knew him from the barracks in her previous life.
Back then, he had looked at Su Erya with some pity and a lot of disgust, as she was just one of many military prostitutes in the barracks.
Now living in the remote Dasu Town, it was no wonder that no one could find him in this world.
Once Su Erya stepped out, Qi Xianqing’s eyes immediately lit up. Su Huanli didn’t notice this. He introduced Doctor Qi to Erya at once, “This is my daughter, Erya. What do you think?”
Qi Xianqing pretended to look up and down for a moment, and nodded slightly, “Miss Su is a natural beauty, and she must be very intelligent. I’ll stay here to give it a try for a few days.”
Su Huanli was happy. He said, “Then the girl will have the honor to be your student, Mr. Qi.”
Qi Xianqing smiled kindly with glistening eyes. “By the way, I’ve heard that your eldest son will go to the County. Could I see him?”
“Why not? It’s a great honor for him to be taught by you!” Su Huanli hurriedly sent people to find his eldest son. But Qi Xianqing said with his hands waving, “Nope! I’m the guest, so it is not right for the host to come to see me. I will go see him.”
Su Huanli didn’t think Qi was acting odd, since most teachers had strange moods. So he immediately obeyed him and let the butler lead the way.
Su Erya didn’t follow them. She just quietly stood in the yard and thought.
In the study, when Su Qingtan saw Doctor Qi, he was confused. He had been thinking about how to ask him to protect his second sister and hadn’t expected that he would come by himself.
“Hehehe, since Mr. Qi wants to direct my son, the butler and I will leave you alone.”
Su Huanli left and even took out the maid.
“Master Su is very clear about the reason why I am here,” Qi Xianqing said.
Su Qingtan nodded slightly, “I am glad that you are here. My second sister is in a bad situation at home, so please help her.”
“Hehehehehe…” Qi Xianqing stroked his white beard, and said, “I am the teacher of your family, and I will see her every day. If you haven’t managed to protect the little girl from getting hurt, I will have to take her to Yunjing.”
Su Qingtan quivered with surprise. It was the location where the Emperor lived and not everyone could go. Even he had to pass his approvals and examinations before he could go to Yunjing.
“Exactly,” Qi Xianqing said with smile when he saw Su Qingtan was shocked. “I am getting old, so I need a successor. Su Erya is the right one. You only need to know that if she inherits my ability, her future will be boundless.”
Su Qingtan’s face grew red. He bowed deeply and said, “My second sister... is too nice! Even if she was bullied, she never told me. I am not qualified to be her big brother at this point. Today, thank you for teaching her medicine. Please take care of her, so that she can live happily.”
Qi Xianqing nodded as a sign of agreement. “The boy has clear eyes and deep emotions. He will be able to walk far away in his official career in the future. While Su Huanli’s eyes are blinded by fame and fortune. I don’t know how did he raised such a son,” Qi thought to himself.
However, what he wanted to teach Su Erya was not only medicine, but also the supreme...
A meaningfully smile flickered across his lips.
In the next three days, Qi Xianqing came early to teach Su Erya how to read and write every morning. Su Erya didn’t pretend to be stupid, and she learned quickly. Qi Xianqing was happy about that. He wanted to test Su Erya for a few days, but he changed his mind. He told Su Huanli at once that he had made up his mind to be Erya’s teacher.
On the fourth day, Su Qinghao also sat in the small class.
When Su Qinghao was sent to the class, Su Huanli whispered in his ear, “Hao, Mr. Qi is a well-known teacher in our town. I spent lots of money on recruiting him. You do not have to go to school from now on, just learn with your second sister. Don’t let me down.”
“Got it, dad!” Su Qinghao replied crisply. He also thought happily that his big brother was leaving, and it’s great that he would learn to read with his second sister!
Su Huanli left. Qi Xianqing looked at Su Qinghao in the seat, frown slightly. However, when his eyes turned to Su Erya who was reviewing the lesson, his brows were gradually unfolded.
“All right. I will turn a blind eye for him. I heard that Su Family has another daughter. Maybe there will be one more in the coming days. I can teach them in a normal way, but the successor will be taught in private.”
After Qi Xianqing made this decision, he opened the book to continue teaching.
Two hours later, Qi Xianqing picked up his book and left. Su Qinghao couldn’t hold himself anymore. He stood up and pulled Su Erya, “Second sister, second sister, let’s play sand in the martial arts field!”
Su Erya didn’t know whether to cry or laugh about the boy’s desires. Then she said, “You can go there. Father will scold me if I go there.”
Su Qinghao ran out disappointedly and thought to himself, “Big brother would not be scolded, but the second sister was still somewhat different from him.”
After clearing up the house, Su Erya carried the copybook and went out. She found that Qi Xianqing was still standing in the doorway, as if he were waiting for her.
Did he want to show his hand?
Su Erya glanced quickly at this old man. It’s clear that he came to Su Family for her, but Su Erya didn’t know if his intentions were good or not.
