Chapter 129: Can It Be Cured?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Madam Qian was a little nervous. This ugly scar had followed her for so many years that she had had enough of teasing since she was young. How good it would be if it could really heal.
Su Xiaolu took Madam Qian’s pulse.
After taking her pulse, Su Xiaolu said under Madam Qian’s vaguely expectant gaze, “The scar on Auntie’s face is too serious. I can’t say for sure that it will recover, but it can be improved on such a basis.”
Half of Madam Qian’s face was almost pulled together by the scars. The eyelids on the right side of her face were different from her left eye. Her eyes were not the same size. The terrifying scars on her face made her afraid to face others’ gazes.
She felt inferior. She would be more sensitive than ordinary people. As long as outsiders looked at her face, even if they were not looking at the scars on her face, she would think that they were looking at the scars on her face.
Su Xiaolu had seen the treatment method for scars in medical books, but it was not easy. Moreover, she had never tried it. Even if it was written in books that it could regenerate skin and restore it to its original state, she did not dare to say this to Madam Qian.
Hadn’t she already failed at making medicinal cuisine?
“Xiaolu, we’ll do it no matter how much money you want!”
Before Madam Qian could speak, Chen Hu had already spoken. He thought about Su Xiaolu’s words. Although he could not recover, it would be better than now.
They were willing to try treatment as long as there was hope.
Madam Qian hesitated. She wanted to tell him to forget it, but she couldn’t help but touch the uneven half of her scarred face. She couldn’t say. If she could get better… she probably wouldn’t look so ugly.
Su Xiaolu said to Chen Hu and Madam Qian seriously, “Uncle Hu, Auntie, I’ve never treated a patient like Auntie before. I’ve only read about it in books, but that was many years ago after all. How about this? I’ll go over and ask Master. Forget about the money. If I can cure Little Aunt’s face, I can earn more money with such medicine.”
“As long as auntie is willing to try my medicine.”
Su Xiaolu spoke seriously. Chen Hu and Madam Qian could not help but think.
Su Xiaolu spoke again, “Uncle Hu, I can treat your leg. It won’t take much effort. I need to find some herbs. When the time comes, you can just give me one tael of silver for medicine money.”
Madam Qian said to Chen Hu, “Dear, I’m willing to try Xiaolu’s medicine.”
After all, no matter how bad it was, it couldn’t be worse than it is now, right?
Chen Hu looked at Madam Qian with heartache. He nodded. “Alright, let’s give it a try.”
Chen Hu looked at Su Xiaolu and said, “Xiaolu, please treat us. Even if it doesn’t work, don’t worry. We won’t blame you.”
Chen Hu knew that everything had risks. He thought that Su Xiaolu was still young and did not want her to feel too pressured.
At their age, they had lived half their lives with such a body. Even if there was an accident, they wouldn’t blame Su Xiaolu.
Su Xiaolu nodded and said, “Okay, I’ll go find Master first.”
Of course, Su Xiaolu had to tell Old Wu about such a big matter.
Chen Hu and Madam Qian also went out to go home.
Su Xiaolu came to the next room and knocked on the door. “Master, good master, get up quickly. I have something to tell you.”
Old Wu was sleeping when he was woken up. He was very impatient. “Stupid girl, do you really think I won’t hit you!”
This was getting more and more outrageous.
Old Wu became angry.
Just as she was about to flare up, she saw that Su Xiaolu had already knelt down and kowtowed heavily.
Old Wu looked at Su Xiaolu’s red forehead and immediately lost his anger. He immediately went forward and pulled Su Xiaolu up. His attitude could not help but soften. “Girl, if you have anything to say, say it slowly. Master said it in a fit of anger. I won’t hit you.”
Old Wu regretted being so strict just now. No matter how smart the little girl was, she was still a child. It was impossible for her to understand everything.
Su Xiaolu looked at Old Wu apologetically and said, “Master, I’m going to go back on my word again. Just now, Uncle Hu Zi and Auntie looked for me and hoped that I could treat them. I’ve seen scar removal medicine in medical books. I can also treat Uncle Hu Zi’s legs by surgery. I can’t say that they can be cured, but they can improve a lot.”
“It’s my fault. I broke my promise again. Master, I’m sorry.”
Su Xiaolu remembered that she didn’t keep her promise to Old Wu. No matter how much she messed around, the old man would spoil her. However, she knew her limits.
She was really nervous about breaking her promise this time.
Old Wu sighed. Seeing that Su Xiaolu was about to cry, he said helplessly, “I thought it was something big. If you want to treat someone in the future, I won’t stop you, but I won’t interfere either.”
“In these two years, quickly memorize all the acupuncture medical books so that Master can teach them to you completely.”
Old Wu rubbed Su Xiaolu’s hair and said.
Su Xiaolu sniffed and was moved to tears. “Master, thank you.”
She was relieved that the old man wasn’t angry.
Seeing that Su Xiaolu was fine, Old Wu regained his cold and arrogant look. He waved his hand impatiently and said, “If there’s nothing else, go back. I’m not done sleeping yet. Leave quickly.”
Su Xiaolu smiled and nodded obediently. She said sweetly, “Thank you, Master. I’ll leave now.”
Old Wu felt very helpless.
Su Xiaolu listened to the old man and ran out.
Old Wu sighed. He had been out of the apprenticeship for decades and had only found a disciple who he liked. However, the little girl’s personality was really lively, which both annoyed him and made him like her a lot.
Su Xiaolu was going to be famous before she finished her apprenticeship. He did not know if it was good or bad.
But on second thought, Old Wu was relieved. So what if it was good or bad? He, the Sect Master of Minggu, could do whatever he wanted. Anyway, it was not like there had never been bad people in the earliest records.
In the opinion of those who were seriously ill, those who did not treat them were the worst people.
Good or bad, let her be. He thought.
When Su Xiaolu returned home, she started to flip through the medical books.
When Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao returned, Su Xiaolu was still reading in the room.
Naturally, no one bothered her.
Su Chong and Su Hua whispered, “Little Brother Heng, Third Sister, can we speak as softly as possible?”
Zhou Heng and Su Xiaoling nodded.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao went to clean up and make dinner.
As the sky grew dark.
Dinner was ready, too.
Only then did Su Xiaolu come out to eat. During the meal, Su Xiaolu said, “Father, Mother, Uncle Hu Zi and Auntie came to look for me today. They also want me to treat them. I’ve taken a look at them. Uncle Hu Zi’s condition can be improved. When you go over later, tell them that I’ll be back in three days to treat Uncle Hu Zi’s leg.”
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were very surprised, but when they regained their senses, they were overjoyed.
