Madam Qian also reacted. She quickly said, “I didn’t have the chance to tell you before. The young doctor who cured my face is still very young. It’s her.”
Su Xiaolu smiled at Madam Chen and said, “I can treat your daughter’s face.”
Although Lin Yaoyao’s face was covered in scars, she had seen it just now. The scars weren’t hideous, and Lin Yaoyao’s facial features weren’t affected. As long as she didn’t stop applying the ointment, she would recover in half a year.
Madam Chen was still in a daze. After a while, she came back to her senses and looked at Su Xiaolu in disbelief. “She looks like she’s only four or five years old. How can she be a doctor?”
Moreover, scars were not easy to treat. Madam Chen was a little sad. She looked at Madam Qian and said sadly, “Sister, if you’re unwilling to introduce me, just say it. Why do you have to hurt me like this…”
Madam Chen did not believe that a young lady could treat scars. She was so young that she probably could not even learn medicine. How many medicinal herbs did she know?
It was obvious that Madam Qian was unwilling to recommend a famous doctor to her, so she used such a method to fool her.
Madam Chen was very distressed.
Madam Qian panicked. “Sister Chen, you’ve misunderstood me. I didn’t lie to you. Xiaolu cured my face. Really.”
Madam Chen had obviously misunderstood her, but she clearly hadn’t lied to her.
Madam Zhao also said, “My daughter is very talented in medicine.”
They were not liars.
Madam Chen’s expression was sad, and the hope in her eyes dimmed.
Lin Yaoyao felt extremely embarrassed. She suppressed the tears that welled up in her heart and said with difficulty, “Mother, let them go.”
She never wanted to be seen in such an embarrassing moment again.
Madam Chen’s heart ached and she was filled with self-reproach. She nodded. “Okay, mother will let them out.”
As she spoke, Madam Chen said indifferently to Madam Qian, “You can leave.”
Madam Qian frowned. “Sigh… forget it. We can’t force it if you don’t believe me.”
“Sister-in-law, let’s go back quickly.”
Madam Qian also felt very uncomfortable not being believed. She felt a little guilty when she looked at Madam Zhao and Su Xiaolu. Not only did she make a wasted trip, but she also made her heart feel uncomfortable.
Madam Zhao thought so too, so she didn’t want to say anything and prepared to bring Su Xiaolu back.
They had just walked out of Lin Yaoyao’s room when they ran into a man.
Lin Pingsheng looked at Madam Zhao and the others with a cold expression. He did not speak and just walked indifferently towards Madam Chen behind them.
Su Xiaolu saw the book in his hand and thought that it was actually very close to the academy. Her eldest brother and second brother had said that Teacher Lin was very strict. His thick eyebrows were like swords and he looked very fierce. His facial features were cold. He was only in his forties, but half of his hair was white.
This man’s appearance was very similar to the teacher mentioned by Big Brother and Second Brother.
Su Xiaolu thought for a moment and said, “If you want to believe me for once, you can go to the restaurant and find my mother to pass me a message.”
Madam Chen was disappointed. She said nothing.
Su Xiaolu only said this before leaving with Madam Zhao.
Madam Zhao didn’t care about this family.
After Madam Qian went out, she said guiltily, “Sister-in-law, I’m really sorry. I don’t know why she doesn’t believe me. It’s clearly Xiaolu. I made you guys come here for nothing.”
Madam Qian felt guilty. She didn’t understand why she didn’t believe it. Xiaolu was clearly very good.
Madam Zhao smiled lightly and said, “I’m fine.”
She didn’t care. She looked at Su Xiaolu. She was worried that Su Xiaolu would be unhappy.
The little girl seemed to know everything. She looked up and revealed a big smile. “Mother, I don’t care either. Master said that some people believe it, but others don’t. Don’t add to your troubles for others.”
If Madam Chen believed her, she would treat it with her whole heart. If Madam Chen did not, then forget it.
There was no way she was going to prove herself to anyone else.
“Xiaolu is right.”
Madam Qian smiled. This was the right mindset.
Madam Zhao smiled and touched Su Xiaolu’s hair before leading her back.
Madam Chen closed the door and returned to the main room with a sad expression.
Thinking of Lin Yaoyao’s suppressed sobs, Lin Pingsheng sighed and said, “Madam, don’t bring those people to see Yaoyao anymore. She can’t take it.”
He knew that Madam Chen wanted to cure his daughter, but there were some things that could not be cured just by thinking about them.
Every time someone came to look at Lin Yaoyao’s face, it would hurt her.
Lin Yaoyao couldn’t bear it. One false hope after another would harm her daughter.
Madam Chen shed tears. She looked at Lin Pingsheng with deep pain in her eyes. “I don’t want this to happen either, but what if I really meet a divine doctor? My daughter is only 24 years old. She has already suffered for more than ten years. Is her life going to be ruined here? I can’t accept this. I can’t accept this.”
Ever since her daughter’s face was destroyed, every day of her life had been endless torture.
Her husband was knowledgeable and could let her live comfortably and be respected.
But so what? He still hadn’t been able to protect her only daughter, and he couldn’t suffer on her behalf.
Her daughter had never bloomed at her age. She could only watch as she slowly withered. How painful it was for her.
Lin Pingsheng could not meet her eyes. He clenched his fists under his sleeves and gritted his teeth, unable to say a word.
Madam Chen was in pain, but so was he.
In the end, Madam Chen lowered her eyes and looked up to wipe her tears. She said calmly, “I’ll go make dinner.”
Lin Pingsheng taught and did not collect much tuition fees. He did not have many students either. The family’s money came from the family’s assets that had once been sold, and in recent years, he had taught the Sun residence’s twins.
Madam Chen had good embroidery skills and often took on embroidery jobs to earn money.
The couple only had one daughter, Lin Yaoyao. Their days were dull.
After Madam Chen left, Lin Pingsheng slowly leaned against the table and sat down. He sighed.
When Madam Zhao and Madam Qian returned to the shop, Su Chong and Su Hua had also arrived.
Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu ran to Madam Qian’s side. Chen Daniu said happily, “Mother, you guys came at the right time. Eldest Brother and Second Brother have just arrived, and you guys are already back.”
They arrived one after another. It was just in time for everyone to go back together.
Su Chong and Su Hua were with Zhou Heng.
Everyone closed the shop and went back together.
On the way, Su Chong and Su Hua taught Su Xiaoling and the others knowledge.
The few of them recited the words as they walked home.
After arriving home, Su Xiaolu realized that her third sister had already started cooking with Madam Zhao.
She helped with the fire. Madam Zhao’s culinary skills were good, and she taught some skills to Su Xiaoling. Su Xiaoling learned seriously.
She learned with ease. Su Xiaolu didn’t pay attention to them after watching for a while. She buried the wild chestnuts into the ashes and calculated when it was about time to take them out with the tongs.
Then, she packed it in a small basket and ran out to find Su Chong and Su Hua.
