Rebirth: Divine Doctor, Sweet Wife - Chapter 427
Even though Gu Qingyao was shocked by how the people in the brigade thought, she could not see Mo Beihan, no matter how much she wanted to.
She had no choice but to wait for the end of the year, when Mo Beihan would be on leave.
It was true that the girls tried to make friends with her as of late. Of them, Sun Mei of the Sun family was the most enthusiastic. Gu Qingyao was mystified as she watched Sun Mei. Did these people take her for a fool?
She had no choice. If she stayed at home, these people would come over to chat with her. It was really annoying. So Gu Qingyao went out every day.
Meanwhile, in the cowshed, Jiang Yiru’s health improved daily. Gu Qingyao took good care of them and the two of them recovered swiftly.
Gu Qingyao was at loose ends. In the depths of winter, almost everyone stayed at home to weather the winter. She came every day and the older folks taught her enthusiastically.
They were all masters of their trade. Anyone would be delighted at the sight of such an intelligent young girl.
After studying with them for a few days, even Gu Yunshen enjoyed going over to listen to Jiang Yiru. More importantly, Gu Qingyao noticed that her father was even more diligent than her.
This shocked Gu Qingyao!
“Father, you’ve been… working hard lately!”
Gu Yunshen’s hand paused in midair and his gaze took on a faraway look for an instant. But he quickly recovered and glanced at Gu Qingyao. He said calmly, “I’m not as clever as you, so I need to work harder.”
As he spoke, he bowed his head and earnestly studied the notes that he had taken during Jiang Yiru’s lesson.
Gu Qingyao: “…”
Jiang Yiru glanced at Gu Yunshen with an amused look in her eyes.
Recently, her little disciple’s father often came to attend lessons. With her permission, he came almost every day.
She had tested him several times and realized that his medical skills were superior to that of Old Master Gu. But when she listened to the older folks talking about the situation in the brigade, she discovered that everyone felt that Gu Yunshen only had a few simple medical skills and it was Old Master Gu who was truly trustworthy.
This fellow… was interesting!
Jiang Yiru looked at Gu Qingyao and said with a laugh, “Your father is quite talented. It’s a pity that he was not properly taught in the past. You probably inherited your talent for medicine, but in you, it is even more outstanding.”
Gu Qingyao smiled, but she felt that her father was acting strangely. It was as if he had suddenly seized an opportunity and refused to let go.
He was very deferential towards Jiang Yiru. He cautiously hoped that Jiang Yiru would permit him to attend her lessons, although he was an outsider and not her disciple. It was as if he had a deep desire for medical skills and eagerly longed to learn more and improve himself.
He even diligently learnt foreign languages from another two old men. What was her father up to?
Meanwhile, Gu Fangting rested her chin on her hands. “I did not inherit any medical talent. In the past, my mother stayed here for a while and listened to a few of Grandma Jiang’s lessons, and she can still remember them! But I don’t remember anything.
“They were so dry! All about herbs, names and medicinal properties. I did not understand at all. Older Cousin, how did you become so clever?”
Gu Qingyao laughed. “It’s just that you are talented in other areas. I can tell you’re doing quite well in your studies?”
Gu Fangting cocked her head. “But I must work hard! My mother says if I don’t manage to learn a thing or two despite being immersed in this environment with all these teachers, I must be a fool.”
Gu Qingyao: “Hee…”
Little Six and Little Nine were also there. Little Nine was the youngest and did not know anything.
He looked at his older sister and cousin. “I don’t understand anything and haven’t learnt anything. Am I a fool?”
Gu Qingyao: “…”
Gu Fangting: “…”
