Madam Zhao couldn’t help but ask, “Can I use it?”
There were also some scars on Madam Zhao’s body. They were all caused by human traffickers. They were all on her back. They were whip wounds. She had never told anyone about this. Only Su Sanlang knew.
Actually, when Su Xiaolu promised to treat Chen Hu and Madam Qian, she already had the intention to do this. However, she had been very busy and did not make any medicine, so she put this matter aside.
Looking at the medicine now, Madam Zhao also had a trace of hope in her heart. If possible, she also hoped that those ugly scars would disappear.
Su Sanlang knew. He looked at Su Xiaolu and said gently, ” Simei, can you give some to your mother? Your mother can help you test the medicine.”
Su Xiaolu hurriedly said, “Of course. I still remember the scars left by the tiger’s bite. I made enough ointment for my mother, big brother, second brother, and father.”
They were her family. If there was something good, they must have it first.
Madam Zhao was stunned and looked at Su Xiaolu in confusion. “Simei, how… how did you know that I was bitten by a tiger?”
They had never told Su Xiaolu about these things.
Did the other children tell her?
Madam Zhao thought and sighed in her heart.
Su Xiaolu looked at Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang seriously and said, “Of course I know. I also know that those two people opposite us today are my biological uncles. I also know that our family is no longer in that family clan. I remember all of that.”
She knew everything. She couldn’t do anything as a child, but she remembered everything that happened at home.
Anyway, she was already a genius divine doctor now. It was fine even if she had a super good memory.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were shocked. They had never thought that Su Xiaolu would remember.
How old was she then?
Su Sanlang came back to his senses. He looked at Su Xiaolu and asked, ” Simei, do you remember the straw hut we used to live in?”
At that time, Su Xiaolu had just been born.
Su Xiaolu looked at Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao in disbelief. She sighed and said, “I can’t remember clearly, but I know that they don’t like our family. I remember that Father and Mother were injured.”
Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang looked at each other with awe in their eyes.
Finally, Su Sanlang said regretfully, “If only you were a boy. You would definitely be more promising than your eldest brother and second brother.”
If this daughter was a boy, she must be able to accomplish a lot.
Madam Zhao also felt that it was a pity that she was not a boy.
Su Xiaolu listened to Su Sanlang’s regret and said with a smile, “It’s okay if I’m a girl. I’m the divine doctor’s disciple.”
It was normal for Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao to sigh like this. After all, most people thought that only men could accomplish great things. Women would marry and have children no matter how smart they were.
It was even common for rich families to have multiple wives.
But those were other people. How she wanted to get a handle on her own life was up to her.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were stunned for a moment. Then Madam Zhao smiled and said, “Yes, you are right.”
Su Sanlang also said gently, “Father and Mother will always be proud of you.”
That’s right. Simei was the divine doctor’s disciple. She was so special. She was different.
Su Xiaolu smiled and focused on brewing the medicine.
What she did not tell Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao was that she would leave home when she became an adult. She wanted to travel the world and live a carefree life without regrets.
As for marriage, she hadn’t considered it yet.
After boiling the ointment into a white and transparent paste, Su Xiaolu extinguished the stove and waited for the paste to cool down.
She then divided it into smaller boxes.
She kept a large box for Madam Zhao and said, “Father can use it too.”
Su Sanlang smiled gently and said, “Father doesn’t need this.”
The scars on his body made little difference, so he had no intention of removing them.
If Madam Zhao needed it, she could use all of it.
Su Xiaolu then gave it to Su Chong and Su Hua. Thinking that Zhou Heng’s legs also had scars, she also gave Zhou Heng a box.
After sending the ointment, Su Xiaoling ran out to Chen Hu’s house.
Su Chong and Su Hua put the things away and continued to study.
Zhou Heng could not help but look at Su Xiaoling. Su Xiaoling did not say anything. She was smiling.
At this moment, Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang called for dinner.
Su Chong and Su Hua immediately stood up. Su Chong said, “Little Brother Heng, let’s go over and help set the table.”
Su Hua said, “I’ll go over and call Uncle-Master to eat.”
They both went out first.
Su Xiaoling also stood up and left. Zhou Heng pulled her sleeve. When Su Xiaoling turned around, Zhou Heng placed the box of scar removal medicine in her palm.
Zhou Heng said softly, “You use it. I’m fine.”
After saying that, Zhou Heng walked past Su Xiaoling.
Su Xiaoling was stunned for a moment. Then, she felt a little happy. She accepted Zhou Heng’s good intentions.
When she was young, she was often beaten up by Madam Wang. There were also some scars on her arms and legs. She actually wanted to use the ointment, but Madam Qian and the others clearly needed it more.
As usual, she was very sensible and kept quiet, but Zhou Heng gave her his portion.
Su Xiaoling took it back to her room and saw a small box beside the bed. She was stunned…
She felt a lump in her throat and tears filled her eyes. Simei hadn’t forgotten her.
Su Xiaoling walked over and opened it. A faint fragrance came out. She opened the box that Zhou Heng had given her, but she did not smell anything. She immediately understood that this fragrant ointment was Su Xiaolu’s preference for her.
She was so moved that tears came to her eyes.
“Third Sister, come and eat.”
At this moment, Madam Zhao’s shout could be heard.
Su Xiaoling quickly wiped her tears and went over to eat.
Su Xiaolu returned after delivering the ointment to Madam Zhao. The family sat together for dinner.
In the blink of an eye, another year had passed.
After dinner, everyone washed up and went to bed.
When they got into bed, Su Xiaoling hugged Su Xiaolu and kissed her cheek. “Xiaolu, thank you.”
Su Xiaolu leaned against Su Xiaoling and said with a smile, “I added fragrance to yours. Have you seen it?”
Su Xiaoling nodded. “Yes, I saw. Thank you, Xiaolu.”
Su Xiaolu yawned. Su Xiaoling stroked her hair and said gently, “Sleep.”
On the other hand.
Madam Zhao said to Su Sanlang, “Sanlang, Simei is too smart. She remembers such small things.”
Su Sanlang said, “Thinking about how she was exceptionally sensible and obedient when she was young, we should have felt it. We should blame ourselves for having too little knowledge.”
“I wonder what kind of family Simei will marry. Sigh… I’m worried about her.”
Madam Zhao sighed. Su Xiaolu was too smart. She was destined to be different from ordinary women. Then, her needs for her future husband’s family would also be different. Madam Zhao was very worried that Su Xiaolu’s love life would be bumpy.
