Chapter 219: Coerce
“Father!” the rims of Shen Jinglin’s eyes redden as soon as he sees this man. He calls out with a low voice and steps forward.
As if he could feel a living person approach, the man immediately snarls and opens his mouth, frenziedly biting over.
Shen Jinglin staggers back.
Looking at his father Shen Yicheng’s miserable appearance, he could no longer hold his tears back from falling.
Just at this moment, Dr. Zhou faintly speaks from behind: “Step aside! This doctor will give him a treatment first.”
Saying that, he steps forward and presses several acupuncture points on Shen Yicheng’s body.
Then, Dr. Zhou makes him drink a bottle of draught.
When the draught reaches his stomach, something magical occurs.
The Shen father who had been raving madly all this while, actually slowly calms down, falling to lie down on the floor. He’s completely silent.
Shen Jinglin steps forward to check, and finds that his father has unexpectedly, truly fallen asleep.
Since the onset of his father’s illness, he had never lain down to get a proper sleep.
But after taking Dr. Zhou’s medicine, he, he has actually genuinely fallen asleep.
“Dr. Zhou, your medical skills are seriously too brilliant!” Su Yuexiang loudly exclaims in admiration, bowing again and again, “Still, asking the sage doctor’s benevolence, please save our family’s master!”
Dr. Zhou strokes his beard, a proud look on his face: “Of course, it’s possible for this old man to save him.”
“But I have already said my conditions! Shen Jinglin must enter my Zhou family, otherwise, I’ll have to ask you to find someone who’s better qualified than me!”
“Dr. Zhou, if you won’t save him, it would be an irreversibly hopeless situation for our master!” Su Yuexiang cries out in alarm, her face filled with anxiousness.
After that, she turns towards Shen Jinglin.
Tears streaming down, she appears unspeakably pitiful, “Jinglin, aunt Su is already begging you. We only have widows and orphans left in the Shen family. Without your father’s support, our Shen family would collapse! I’m begging you, save the master!”
Shen Jinglin fearfully looks at his unconcious father, then he turns to look at Dr. Zhou’s daughter.
Said person immediately cracks her mouth towards him, revealing a greedy sacrificial bowl. That mouth sweetly calls out, “Jinglin-brother, Nunu likes you the most, hurry up and become Nunu’s husband!”
Shen Jinglin only feels despair in his heart.
If he agrees, then the second half of his life is as good as ruined.
But if he doesn’t agree, then what about father’s life?
“Jinglin, if you won’t agree, then aunt Su can only agree to the Lu family’s request and marry Muyan to their foolish son, Lu Chengcai. With the Lu family’s enormous influence, their family being extremely wealthy, I believe that we’d definitely be able to find a way to treat the master’s illness.”
Su Yuexiang wipes the tears from her eyes: “I also don’t want to push Muyan into the pit of fire, but who let the Lu family’s foolish son take a fancy to Muyan? If master will never wake up again, the Shen family’s orphans and widows, what can we do if the Lu family imposes to grab our people? Ah, it would be a pity for Muyan, countenance of a flower, face like the moon – only to be married to that fool from the Lu family.”
Shen Jinglin’s teeth makes a grinding sound, despair floods into his eyes.
His tightly clenched fists slowly slackens, his voice hoarse as he says: “As long as I agree to enter into the Zhou family, you must ensure that you can cure my father.”
“Naturally, this old man is the number one Godly Doctor in Tianyuan City. So long as the marriage sedan would lift you to enter the Zhou family, and you and my daughter consummate the marriage, this old man will immediately cure Master Shen’s illness for you.” there’s a coercive light in Dr. Zhou’s eyes. He doesn’t speak too fast nor too slow.
At the side, Zhou Huanu trembles in excitement even more, the way she looks at Shen Jinglin, is like how she would look at a fatty meat that’s about to enter into her mouth.
