“Sorry for keeping you waiting Dr. Wang,” Fang Zhengyuan apologized as soon as he saw Wang Yao.
“That’s alright,” Wang Yao said.
While he was speaking, he briefly looked at Fang Yi and found that she looked better. The red dots on her neck were still there, but they seemed to be fading.
“How have you been feeling?” Wang Yao asked.
“I’ve been feeling better,” Fang Yi replied softly.
She hadn’t stopped taking Wang Yao’s decoction. She did feel better, at least she felt she was stronger. The nausea and dizziness had also reduced.
“Please sit down, let me take a close look,” Wang Yao said.
He checked Fang Yi’s pulse.
Fang Yi was apparently getting better. The two decoctions he gave Fang Yi had worked. One decoction was to consolidate and enhance her vitality. The other was to cool her body and drive the toxins out of it. The red dots on her arms were also fading.
“You need to continue to take the decoctions I gave you,” Wang Yao said.
Fang Yi agreed.
“Look, Dr. Wang, my daughter is in the last year of high school. She’s very behind with her study due to her illness. She wants to continue to go to school. What do you think? Do you think she is fit enough to go to school now?” Fang Zhengyuan asked.
He was glad that his daughter had the motivation to go to school. However, he was worried that she couldn’t handle the pressure from study due to her illness. He and his wife would rather Fang Yi give up study and go nowhere as long as she was healthy.
She’s in the last year of high school.
Wang Yao was figuring out what he should do.
He had been there, so he knew how stressful and tiring it was during high school years. Parent’s expectation, the stress caused by university entry exam, and the uncertainty of one’s future had a big impact on a student’s well-being. The last year of high school was the most stressful time for a student. One needed confidence and good health to survive it.
Wang Yao didn’t think Fang Yi was fit enough to handle the stress that went with the last year of high school.
“Given her current health status, I don’t think it is a good idea to go back to school. She won’t be able to handle the stress of study, especially since she’s in the last year of high school.” Wang Yao told Fang Zhengyuang what was on his mind. Fang Yi’s health should be the priority.
“I see.” Fang Yi sounded a bit disappointed.
“The first term has just started. Try to get better first, then see if you can go back to school later on. Worst case scenario, you can go back to school next year,” Wang Yao said.
Fang Yi didn’t respond. Wang Yao’s words didn’t lift her mood.
“Thank you for your advice, Dr. Wang. We are almost running out of the decoctions you gave me last time. Can you please…” Fang Zhengyuan said.
“I’ll give you another dose,” Wang Yao replied.
Fang Zhengyuan left after Wang Yao had given them the decoction.
They came in a hurry and left in a hurry.
What a family! Wang Yao shook his head.
“Dad, I want to go back to school,” Fang Yi said to her parents after she left the clinic.
“You heard what Dr. Wang said. You are not fit enough to go back to school. What if your condition gets worse?” Fang Zhengyuan worriedly asked.
“But, I don’t want to delay one year,” Fang Yi said.
She was always a good student and one of the top 10 students in her year. However, she hadn’t been to school for half a year due to her illness.
“Can you ask Dr. Wang to see if he has a way to make me get better sooner?” Fang Yi asked.
Fang Zhengyuan breathed a sigh as he looked at his daughter. He then turned around in the rain.
Meanwhile, Wang Yao was ready to leave the clinic and go back to Nanshan Hill.
What’s going on?
“Why did you come back?”
He was confused to see Fang Zhengyuan coming back to the clinic.
“Well, Dr. Wang, do you have any ways to make my daughter get better sooner?” Fang Zhengyuan asked.
“She still wants to go back to school?” Wang Yao questioned.
“Yes, I don’t want delay school for a year. All the other classmates will start to study in the university next year, while I will still be in high school. It will be a torture to me,” Fang Yi said.
She looked so young. Her eyes were full of hope.
“Let me think about it,” Wang Yao said.
He could make Fang Yi get better sooner, but it would cost a lot.
He could use licorice roots to treat her. Apparently licorice roots worked much better than common herbs. However, he didn’t have any enough bonus points to purchase more licorice roots. The Muscle Revitalizing powder and Meridian Unblocking powder had cost all his bonus points. The only possible option was if he could get a large amount of wild herbs like the ones Chen Boyuan gave him to exchange for more bonus points.
“Have you spent a lot of money on her illness?” Wang Yao asked.
“Yes, Dr. Wang, but money is not our biggest concern,” Fang Zhengyuan said, understanding what Wang Yao indicated.
“Well, finish the decoction I gave you today and give me some time to think about it,” Wang Yao said.
“Okay, thank you very much,” Fang Zhengyuan said.
Fang Yi breathed a big sigh as she walked out of the clinic.
She was tired of staying home. She wanted to go back to school to be with her friends. More importantly, she wanted to go to university as soon as she could.
“System, will you be able to make an exception for someone who really needs the licorice roots?’ Wang Yao said.
Grow the licorice roots yourself!
“Shit!” Wang Yao rarely cursed.
The system hadn’t changed.
Well, I shall grow the licorice roots myself!
At this stage, the system had unlocked all 36 low quality licorice roots, but even the seeds of licorice roots required bonus points. The bonus points equaled money.
He had to gradually save bonus points. It was the only thing he could do at the moment given his previous experience.
It started to get late. Something was happening in a household in Lianshan.
A couple were in a cold war for over a month.
Chen Wei was distressed. As a man at his prime of life, he felt depressed to have this unspeakable condition suddenly.
He had taken Wang Yao’s decoction twice but didn’t feel it worked.
Maybe I should go to the provincial hospital, Chen Wei thought.
He had been to the hospitals in Dao and Wei, but none of the doctors there could cure him.
Bang! It was his wife closing the door.
He felt aggrieved.
He walked back and forth in the empty room without any purpose. Eventually, he took out his phone to call his friend.
“Jun, are you on duty? If not, come out and drink with me,” Chen Wei said.
They went to a nice barbecue restaurant.
Chen Wei drank three bottle of beers in 10 minutes.
“What is going on?” Pan Jun asked.
“Same thing, drink!” Chen Wei said.
Thump! Chen Wei opened another bottle.
“Has Dr. Wang given you any decoctions?” Pan Jun asked.
“Yes, I’ve taken it twice already, but it didn’t work,” Chen Wei replied.
Plump! Plump! Chen Wei drank another bottle of beer.
“Stop drinking!” Pan Jun took the bottle out of Chen Wei’s hand.
“You haven’t finished one because of the decoction. How do you know it’s not gonna work? Plus, you are not allowed to drink during the treatment. I guess you didn’t follow Dr. Wang’s advice on alcohol at all,” Pan Jun said.
Chen Wei burped and didn’t know what to say.
Pan Jun was right that he had been drinking a lot lately, not only outside but also at home. It was no wonder he had been drinking. His wife always made a face at him.
“If you still treat me as a friend, you should listen to me. Stop drinking and take another dose of the decoction. If it still doesn’t work, you could seek alternative solutions. However, I have to tell you the truth. Dr. Wang is an extraordinary doctor who won’t just see any patient,” Pan Jun said.
Chen Wei stared at the half-filled bottle for a long while.
Wang Yao was looking at the system control panel in his clinic.
Nine days. He had nine days left. His mission of “getting his name out” was halfway finished.
There will be a problem!
Previously, Wang Yao only saw patients introduced by his friends. However, Fang Yi was not one of those patients. He would probably have more patients than he wanted in the future.
Let me take a walk outside.
It was sunny the next morning.
Wang Yao was going to brew another Meridian unblocking powder. He needed to increase the quantity as both Zhou Wukang and Chen Boyuan’s father-in-law required it.
Meanwhile, road work had started from the town center to the village. The road was going to be widened, so the narrow road became even narrower.
“Road work?” Wang Yao heard it from Zhang Xiuying while having lunch.
“Yes, they’ve started in order to build a hot spring in the village behind ours,” Zhang Xiuying said.
“It’s a good thing to widen the road,” Wang Yao said as he smiled.
It was a good thing in the long run. A widened road would reduce traffic jams and make it easier for the villagers to travel around. It would also benefit the local economics.
“It’s no good for now. It is so inconvenient to go out.” Zhang Xiuying didn’t think too much about future. It was difficult for her to navigate when she went out in the morning.
Wang Yao laughed.
After lunch, he went to visit Li Maoshuang in the town center.
“Wild herbs? That’s a lot of wild herbs you are asking for,” Li Maoshuang said.
He was surprised to see the amount of herbs on Wang Yao’s list.
“Yes, can you please get them for me?” Wang Yao asked.
“Sure, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can,” Li Maoshuang said.
