Chapter 220: Silly Thing
“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 speaks neither fast nor slow.
At the side, Zhou Huanu trembles in excitement even more, the way she looks at Shen Jinglin, is like how one would look at a fatty meat that’s about to enter one’s mouth.
Shen Jinglin slowly closes his eyes, there’s the loneliness of a heart that has turned into cold ash, “Very well, I…”
Before he could finish his words, the chamber’s door suddenly makes a creaking sound as it’s once again pushed in.
As the door opens, a woman’s silvery sweet-sounding voice subsequently comes through.
“Big brother, I already knew that you were hiding something from me, but I really didn’t expect that it would be such a silly thing.”
Hearing that voice, and seeing her silhouette enter, Shen Jinglin’s eyes snaps wide open, “Yanyan!”
How can Yanyan be here?
Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru also have astonished expression.
It should be known that this room’s door has a mechanism, with each of its hinges weighing a thousand catties. Without a key, an average martial practitioner wouldn’t be able to open it at all.
Just how did this Jun Muyan get down here?
Entering in, it’s precisely Muyan, Xiao Bao following closely by her side.
In front of everyone’s flabbergasted looks, Xiao Bao aloofly claps the dust off his hands, then he holds on to Muyan.
Those iron doors are very dusty.
Xiao Bao definitely wouldn’t want to make niangqin’s hand dirty!
Shen Jinglin immediately comes to his senses, “Yanyan, what are you doing here? Even bringing Xiao Bao along… quickly, quickly leave!”
Muyan doesn’t pay him any heed, opting to crouch in front of the unconscious Shen patriarch instead. There’s a complex expression on her face as she murmurs, “Father…”
“Yanyan!” Shen Jinglin hurriedly raises his voice, “Father is fine, he will be cured soon. Can you leave here first?”
Shen Jinglin’s eyes are already wearing a sad and pleading expression as he’s saying this.
Muyan has a harsh look on her face, her voice cold: “Leave here and then do nothing but watch big brother take in a wife that you don’t love – all for father’s sake, and for mine? Oh, it’s not even taking a wife, but entering her family!”
“Muyan, what are you doing?” Su Yuexiang speaks out, “Your brother has been left with no choice, isn’t it all to save your father? Don’t tell me you want to do nothing and watch your father die from madness?”
“Save father?” Muyan sneers, “Then aunt Su, why don’t you let your own daughter go and do something to save him? Why insist to have big brother do it?”
“You…” Su Yuexiang is just about to refute,
Muyan interrupts her, calmly turning to look towards Dr. Zhou, “Besides, if my big brother enters the Zhou family, would my father’s illness really be cured?”
Dr. Zhou hears this and he replies with displeasure, furrowed brows and blazing eyes: “And just what are you? Saying that much, are you questioning this old man’s medical expertise?”
Muyan chuckles: “Empty words, no guarantees. What if after my brother enters the Zhou family, and Dr. Zhou couldn’t cure the illness? Then who could we turn to and account for that? I say, why don’t we do it like this: Dr. Zhou treats my father first, and once he’s cured, let’s come again and discuss the matter about making my brother enter your family.”
“Do you take this old man as a fool?” Dr. Zhou says in anger, “If this old man does cure him, what’s to be done if you go back on your words?”
“Then Dr. Zhou, why don’t you first say one thing clearly – what exactly is my father’s illness?”
“That’s…” Dr. Zhou stutters all of a sudden, “It’s… it’s obviously just the common hysteria! There’s nothing else to say!”
