After I Married the Disabled War God As My Concubine - Chapter 60
According to Li Changning, he needed to administer medicine to Jiang Suizhou for a period of time before he could conclude how to cure his weakness.
Jiang Suizhou didn’t mean that, so he didn’t take his words to heart. He just asked him to prescribe his medicine daily according to his diagnosis, and then observe the aftereffect.
Li Changning naturally did as he was told.
And on the first day of dispensing medicine to Jiang Suizhou, Jiang Suizhou retained him.
“Go check his legs,” Jiang Suizhou, who had received the decocted soup, said to Li Changning.
There was no one else in the room except for Meng Qianshan. Li Changning contemplated his stern voice and then saw Wei Kai secretly winking at him.
As early as yesterday, when he first consulted with Jingwang, he mentioned his ‘Madam Huo’s’ leg problems. Yesterday, Wei Kai and he also discussed this matter in private.
When he met his eyes, Li Changning understood. After bowing towards Jiang Suizhou, he moved toward Huo Wujiu’s couch.
Meng Qianshan served Jiang Suizhou. He drank the soup and then waited for Li Changning to examine Huo Wujiu.
He watched as Li Changning kneeled in front of Huo Wujiu, fiddling and examining him up and down. He asked Huo Wujiu a few questions from time to time, and then retrieved a booklet from his medical kit. He wrote some notes and drew pictures on it.
After a long time, Li Changning packed up his things and stood up.
“How is it?” Jiang Suizhou hurriedly asked.
Li Changning gathered up the medical kit by his side and handed it over to Wei Kai. He got up and turned to Jiang Suizhou, bowing. His tone was tinged with a bit of hesitation when he spoke, “Madam’s leg problems…I’m afraid it’s difficult to heal.”
Jiang Suizhou’s brow wrinkled, and his complexion gradually turned heavy.
Then he heard Li Changning sigh and continue, “The meridians in Madam’s legs are damaged, and I’m afraid it will be difficult to heal them. With all my life’s work, I can only relieve him of one or two ailments.”
Hearing these words, Jiang Suizhou asked, “How are you going to relieve them?”
Li Changning replied, “I know the art of acupuncture and moxibustion, so I can help Madam to relieve his pain. That way, when it’s cloudy and rainy, he will suffer less.”
Jiang Suizhou heaved a sigh of relief deep inside.
He knew that Huo Wujiu’s legs would unlikely be cured, but he also placed a lot of hope on the doctor in front of him. It was just a pity that the doctor he sought early wasn’t the person he really wanted to find.
He could only comfort himself inwardly.
Forget it, didn’t this doctor say that he could relieve Huo Wujiu’s illness? This wasn’t entirely useless. After all, every time it rained, Huo Wujiu’s legs hurt badly. It was good to alleviate his symptoms a bit.
With this thought in mind, Jiang Suizhou nodded. His expression remained indifferent, and he said impassively, “It doesn’t matter. I also have no intention to cure him. Since this is the case, feel free to give him medical treatment. Whatever the results, I won’t pursue it.”
Hearing these words, Li Changning seemed to be relieved and bowed to thank him.
Jiang Suizhou waved his hand to let him get up. The words that came out of his mouth carried a bitter taste, but deep inside he was palpitating. Did the doctor say just now that he could give Huo Wujiu acupuncture?
Since needles would be used, a more spacious place was, of course, needed, for him to perform the procedure freely. Although the couch in the room wasn’t narrow, there was no reason for the doctor to treat Huo Wujiu on it every day.
In that case…
Jiang Suizhou held his cup of tea and pondered over it.
Could he take this opportunity to have Huo Wujiu move out?
When Huo Wujiu first moved into his mansion, Jiang Suizhou let him stay in his room temporarily because he couldn’t find an excuse otherwise.
However, this time, a legitimate excuse was handed to him.
Jiang Suizhou began to seriously think about the feasibility of this matter.
After all, he initially got Huo Wujiu to his side, all in order to protect him on his own turf. Now that Huo Wujiu had gotten used to living here and became more familiar with him, it would be perfectly reasonable and safe if he took this opportunity to arrange another residence for Huo Wujiu in his manor.
In passing, he could also have a little showdown with Huo Wujiu to try his luck and sound him out.
Thus, Jiang Suizhou made up his mind and dismissed all the people who were waiting for him during the evening meal that day.
Beneath the glowing candle flames, Huo Wujiu raised his eyes and looked at Jiang Suizhou.
Jiang Suizhou’s stance told him that he had something to tell him.
Huo Wuguo thought to himself, Just in time.
He also had something to say to Jiang Suizhou.
Just listening to what the old man said to Jiang Suizhou today, he knew that those two people had reservations about Jiang Suizhou today.
Huo Wujiu knew that Wei Kai would never do anything that he wasn’t sure of. The doctor he brought with him would never fail to cure his leg.
The two of them said this, all to guard against Jiang Suizhou, fearing that when they could cure his legs, he would take precautions against them. Similarly, the old doctor must have been able to cure Jiang Suizhou’s illness, but was fishing for his words. He was 80% sure he was waiting for his orders.
However, they didn’t know that Jiang Suizhou had never been a threat to them.
Even yesterday, Jiang Suizhou directly told him he would cure his leg, and even was prepared to confront Jiang Shunheng on his behalf after curing him.
Huo Wujiu could no longer hold himself back.
He wanted to tell Jiang Suizhou that the doctor could definitely cure him and also himself.
He also wanted to tell Jiang Suizhou that he didn’t have to be afraid. Jiang Shunheng, whether to him or to Jiang Suizhou, would always be a threatening enemy. Once he had recovered the strength to contend with him, he wouldn’t let Jiang Suizhou be caught in the crossfire.
In contrast, he would protect him well.
Huo Wujiu had always been cautious and meticulous. In the past, he would never let people in the rival camp find out the tiniest bit of the actual situation.
But for some reason, Jiang Suizhou was different.
Perhaps becaused Jiang Shunheng picked on him, so even if he was in the enemy camp, he would never be in cahoots with them; or perhaps it was because this person was very simple. Although Jiang Suizhou insisted that he was a bad person, he was devoid of the least bit of lethality and was worthy of trust.
Or perhaps…it was because he seemed to, well, really like him.
