Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Elder Liu looked at the major acupoints that Chen Meng’er had pointed out and thought about them carefully. It would have been better if Elder Liu had not thought about them. The moment he thought about them, he remembered that when he was young, he had accidentally read an ancient medical book that introduced the functions of the major acupoints.
That book had unfortunately been lost at the beginning of the Cultural Revolution. Because of this, his father had been heartbroken for a long time because this ancient book had just been obtained by his father and he had not had the time to study it in detail.
At that time, Elder Liu had been lucky enough to flip through it and take a general glance. He had some impressions of some of the things inside, but they were only impressions.
After Chen Meng’er finished speaking, she returned to her father, Chen Ping’s side. Everyone’s gaze turned to Elder Liu again, waiting to see Elder Liu’s reaction.
Elder Liu came back to his senses and said to Xiao Liu, “Xiao Liu, help me get my needle.”
“Sir.” When Xiao Liu heard that Elder Liu wanted him to get the needle, he knew that Elder Liu was planning to try the acupuncture points that Chen Meng’er pointed out. He opened his mouth to stop Elder Liu. This was a matter of life and death; he could not joke about it.
“Xiao Liu, go get the needle.” Elder Liu glared at Xiao Liu and interrupted Xiao Liu’s words.
Xiao Liu was reprimanded by Elder Liu, so he could only lower his head and go to the back room to get the needle. When he left, he didn’t forget to glare fiercely at Chen Meng’er, he cursed in his heart, “This little troublemaker. If something really happens later, Mister’s life will be ruined.”
Chen Meng’er received Xiao Liu’s glare very calmly. On the other hand, her father, Chen Ping, saw Xiao Liu’s gaze that seemed as if he wanted to skin Chen Meng’er alive and eat her alive. He subconsciously hid his daughter, Chen Meng’er, behind him.
On the boy’s family’s side, when they heard that Elder Liu was planning to give it a try, their expressions didn’t look too good. It made sense. Anyone who heard that their child had become a test subject would not have a good expression. Just now, when Xiao Liu spoke, the boy’s mother was about to speak as well. However, she was stopped by the boy’s grandfather, so she shut her mouth and stood unwillingly to the side. She looked anxiously at the unconscious boy lying on the ground. She was secretly worried. Why wasn’t the hospital’s ambulance here yet?
“Elder Liu, are you confident?” The old man on the boy’s side asked.
“Yes. I’m more than 50% sure. Old Lu, if you don’t give it a try, your grandson’s life will be in danger.” It was obvious that Elder Liu knew the boy’s grandfather and had a good relationship with him. This could also be explained. The reason why this family didn’t go to the hospital after their child fell down the stairs and came directly to Elder Liu.
“Then let’s give it a try. Elder Liu, I’ll leave my grandson to you.” The boy’s grandfather sighed and said.
“Okay.” After Elder Liu finished speaking, Xiao Liu returned with his silver needles.
“Sir, here are your needles.” Xiao Liu handed the needle box to Elder Liu. After Wlder Liu took it, he raised his head and said to Chen Meng’er, “Little girl, come over and point out the positions of these acupuncture points for me.”
The positions of acupuncture points could not be wrong at all. If something were to go wrong, it would not just be ineffective. Sometimes, it could even kill someone.
“Okay.” Chen Meng’er walked out from behind her father, Chen Ping. When Chen Meng’er walked out, Chen Ping wanted to hold on to his daughter, Chen Meng’er, for a moment. He did not want her to get involved in this matter.
And now, he was a little regretful. He regretted that his daughter acted coquettishly back then. So he agreed to bring her to the city.. He was worried that if the boy was not rescued in the end, this family would do something to his daughter.
