Shocking Venomous Consort: Frivolous Miss - Chapter 654
“You don’t need to thank me. The heart of a doctor is like that of a parent. Saving the world and helping the world is what I should do,” Jiang Wuhen said nonchalantly.
“Godly doctor Jiang, although you are being so modest, I must tell you that my brothers’ injuries were unable to be treated even though we had seen so many other physicians. If it were not for us meeting you, I’m afraid that they would have long since lost their lives. Now that they have recovered, they are even healthier than before. Godly doctor Jiang, you are my family’s savior. My brothers have specially asked me to bring you these silver taels to express our family’s heartfelt gratitude. I hope that you can accept our gift with a smile,” said Li Shaoqiu as he took out a few silver bars and put them on a table.
“Master Li, could it be that you look down on my profession? I have already said that saving the dead and giving support to the injured is my duty as part of my vocation. Furthermore, I have already accepted the fees your family has paid for diagnosis and treatment. How could I accept this thank you gift?” said Jiang Wuhen with a face of displeasure as he pushed the silver back towards Li Shaoqiu.
In this day and age, there is actually someone who rejects silver offered to them? The gazes of the crowd towards Jiang Wuhen instantly changed. Firstly, without talking about medical skills, his character alone was already incredibly commendable. It was something those rowdy cheats absolutely could not compete against.
Ling Chuxi stood at the periphery of the crowd and watched Li Shaoqiu and Jiang Wuhen’s heartfelt performances and almost laughed out loud. ‘That’s what I thought. Why would this cheat suddenly change his character and learn how to show off like this by himself? It turns out that he has found an accomplice.’
In the past how did she not notice that the young master of the Li censor’s family actually had such a talent for acting. The look on his face coupled with his glistening tears and incoherence due to his excitement appeared so genuine that it was almost even able to cheat Ling Chuxi.
“You must. If I go back like this, my brothers will definitely beat me to death personally for failing to give you our family’s gift. Godly doctor Jiang, please just accept this from us. Just think of it as helping me out, all right?” Li Shaoqiu begged as he pushed the silver back towards Jiang Wuhen once again.
“No, no, I cannot. Wouldn’t it be a corruption of my medical ethics if I do? If I accept your silver, once time has passed and I have to meet my Jiang family ancestors a hundred years later, how would I have the face to meet them?” declared Jiang Wuhen righteously in rejection once again.
As the two of them constantly pushed the silver back and forth across the table that could seat eight people, the crowd looked on at the spectacle of a grateful family member wanting to repay his gratitude to this godly doctor who was so observant of medical ethics. As they watched, their hearts also became curious towards the medical skills of this great godly doctor Jiang.
“Young brother, were your elder brothers really treated that well by him?” asked the middle-aged aunty.
“Of course, that is a given! Otherwise, why would they ask me to give this silver to him?” replied Li Shaoqiu as he swept a glance at the aunty from the corner of his eyes. “The Li family have been plucking herbs for a living and our family finances can be considered solid. But we never thought that disaster would strike half a month ago when my brothers went to pluck herbs and encoutnered a Shocking Thunder Beast. Only after a bitter battle did they manage to keep their lives. But my eldest, third, sixth and seventh brothers all ended up with injured internal organ and broken bones. We went looking for over ten so called godly doctors one after the other, and they all said there was no hope for them and asked us to prepare for funeral and afterlife matters instead. My sisters-in-law cried day and night over this. They cried so much that they were about to turn blind,” said Li Shaoqiu as the rim of his eyes turned red.
“What happened next?” asked the aunty, wiping her eyes as she listened to this tragedy.
“We had even bought their coffins. Who knew that it was in fact not the end of the path once we met godly doctor Jiang at this time. After making them swallow a few medicinal pills, they actually totally recovered from all their injuries. Godly doctor Jiang not only saved my brothers but my sisters-in-law from unbearable grief, too. In fact, he saved the entire Li family. If my brothers had just been left to die like that, the Li family would have been utterly ruined,” said Li Shaoqiu as he wiped his eyes and sighed nonstop.
“You mentioned a Shocking Thunder Beast, right?” asked a middle-aged man who was dressed as a cultivator. When he heard that detail, he was curious and could not help but finally open his mouth to ask about it.
