Su Xiaolu clapped. “Then you’ve suffered. Master’s medicinal cuisine is too horrible. It just so happens that I’ve recently learned medicinal cuisine. I’ve even learned culinary skills from the Sun residence. Wait for me. I’ll make a medicinal cuisine for you to nourish your body.”
Zhou Heng was about to say no, but Su Xiaolu got up and ran to the kitchen.
Zhou Heng was helpless, but he quickly comforted himself. Su Xiaolu was extremely smart. The medicinal cuisine she made must not be bad.
He took several deep breaths and resumed his workout.
Su Xiaolu was preparing ingredients in the kitchen.
She firmly believed that the failure at the Sun residence was because there was no meat, so she added meat this time.
She had been observing in the kitchen of the Sun residence for the past few days and was very confident in herself.
Building a fire was a small thing for her. Everything was going well.
But an hour later, she looked at the slightly gray meat porridge and fell into deep thought. She did not dare to eat it herself, so she scooped it up and went to look for Zhou Heng.
She smiled sweetly and handed it to Zhou Heng as if she was presenting a treasure. She said, “Big Brother Zhou Heng, this is very nourishing. It can make your body warm and not hurt your leg tendons. It’s very effective in easing the pain of pulling your tendons.”
Zhou Heng pursed his lips and looked at Su Xiaolu’s medicinal cuisine. It was almost identical to Old Wu’s.
He looked at her again. Her smile was very sweet.
Zhou Heng only felt that this was a little demon.
But he had eaten a lot of medicinal cuisines. Bitterness was nothing to him.
So he took it and said gently to Su Xiaolu, “Thank you, Xiaolu.”
Zhou Heng took a bite. It was hard to say what it tasted like. The medicinal cuisine was soft and mushy, but it was also a little dry. He could not swallow it directly, but he also could not chew it. The taste of the medicinal cuisine itself was stimulating his taste buds.
He could say with certainty that Su Xiaolu’s medicinal cuisine was even worse than Old Wu’s.
But when he looked at Su Xiaolu, her eyes sparkled with anticipation. For a moment, Zhou Heng could not tell if she was teasing him.
Anyway, he would not die from eating it. It was disgusting, but it was really beneficial. Zhou Heng ate it in big mouthfuls.
Su Xiaolu looked at Zhou Heng eating so happily and became very confident. “Big Brother Zhou Heng, isn’t it good?”
After Zhou Heng finished eating, he nodded casually and said, “It’s alright.”
Looking at her sparkling eyes, he really couldn’t bear to hurt her. Forget it, so what if he doted on her? After all, Xiaoling doted on her so much too.
Su Xiaolu happily took the bowl and chopsticks to clean up.
Then there was a knock on the door.
Chen Hu’s voice came from outside. Chen Hu said, “Is Xiaolu home?”
Zhou Heng went to open the door. He said gently to Chen Hu and Madam Qian, “Xiaolu is in the kitchen.”
Chen Hu and Madam Qian thanked Zhou Heng and went to the kitchen together.
Su Xiaolu happily washed the dishes.
Chen Hu and Madam Qian came in. Madam Qian had already walked quickly to carry Su Xiaolu off the stove and said, “Xiaolu, let me do it. You’re still young.”
Su Xiaolu was still young, so she could only reach it with a stool.
Madam Qian wiped Su Xiaolu’s hands with the apron on her waist as if she was treating Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu.
Su Xiaolu said in embarrassment, “Thank you, Auntie.”
Su Xiaolu looked at Chen Hu and said, “Uncle Hu, if you’re here for my parents, they haven’t returned yet, but they should be back soon.”
Chen Hu looked at Su Xiaolu and smiled gently. “Xiaolu, we’re not looking for Big Brother and Sister-in-law. We’re here for you.”
Su Xiaolu was stunned. “Looking for me?”
What could Chen Hu and Madam Qian want from her?
Chen Hu walked toward Su Xiaolu. Su Xiaolu watched Chen Hu walk and immediately understood.
Chen Hu went to Su Xiaolu’s side and said with a smile, “Xiaolu, Uncle wants you to take a look at your aunt and me. Can we still be treated?”
Thinking that Su Chong and Su Hua had been cured and that a big family like the Sun residence had also invited Su Xiaolu as a doctor, Chen Hu was looking forward to it.
Chen Hu said, “I burned my leg when I was young. It hurt too much at that time, so I often curled my leg up. Later, when I recovered, my leg couldn’t stretch straight anymore, so it became a lame leg. Your aunt was also burned when she was young, and her face was scarred.”
Su Xiaolu smiled and said, “Uncle Hu, roll up your pants first. Let me take a look at your legs. It’s been so many years. Let me take a look first.”
As for Madam Qian, it was mainly to remove scars.
Chen Hu rolled up the hem of his trousers, revealing his savagely scarred foot.
His feet didn’t look like normal human feet either. The flesh of his insteps and ankles were slightly pulled.
Behind the knee, the skin of the thigh and calf connected. It was also different from the back of a normal knee.
Chen Hu was a little nervous. Su Xiaolu reached out and pressed it. She mainly wanted to confirm if her tendons were injured and if they were normal.
Su Xiaolu pressed Chen Hu’s ankle too to check.
Madam Qian cleaned up the dishes and came to the side. She waited anxiously and did not dare to make a sound, afraid that she would disturb Su Xiaolu.
After checking, Su Xiaolu said, “Uncle Hu, reach out your hand and let me take your pulse.”
Let’s see if the veins work.
Chen Hu extended his hand, and Su Xiaolu checked his pulse. After a while, she said, “Uncle Hu, I can give you surgery as treatment so that your tendons can stretch out, but you won’t be able to recover like a normal person. You’ll only be better than you are now.”
Chen Hu’s hamstrings could not be stretched straight. If they were pulled, she would be able to cut away some of the torn scar flesh so that his legs could straighten a little.
But it had been so many years, after all. His lame leg was certainly not as good as the normal one, so after straightening it out, there would be some improvement, but there was no way to match the good leg.
And it was hard to say how well it could be.
Chen Hu was deep in thought when he heard this. Before he could speak, Madam Qian pulled Su Xiaolu excitedly and said, “Xiaolu, how much does it cost to treat him? If we treat him, it’ll be good even if he gets a bit better.”
It would be better than this, no matter what. It should be treated.
Chen Hu quickly said, “Xiaolu, don’t listen to your aunt. I’m not in a hurry. Take a look at your aunt first.”
Madam Qian was about to say something when Su Xiaolu said, “Let’s talk about how to treat it later. Let me take a look at Auntie’s face first.”
Madam Qian still wanted to speak, but Chen Hu looked at her and said, “Dear, we agreed.”
If Madam Qian wouldn’t get treated, then he wouldn’t either.
Seeing the determination in Chen Hu’s eyes, Madam Qian had no choice but to swallow her words. She turned to look at Su Xiaolu gently and said, “Xiaolu, sorry to trouble you.”
Madam Qian sat down and Su Xiaolu walked to her side.
She reached out to touch the scar on Madam Qian’s face and tucked her hair behind her ear.
The scar on Madam Qian’s face went from her forehead to her neck. Su Xiaolu had seen it when Madam Qian gave birth to Chen Shi. The scar ended at her chest.
There were protrusions on the scars, and there were no hair follicles on the scars. They were like earthworms buried in Madam Qian’s face and body. The protrusions of the scars were also smooth.
