AST 2439 – Grudge of the Nine Continents Medical Sect
“Haha, I heard that an Imperial Cuisine Hall opened up. What big words. You’re even running a medical hall. I would love to see what qualifications you have to do this.”
A clear and lively voice was brought to their ears. It was a man. People couldn’t guess his age, but he had a mild air around him. The people around all greeted him when they saw him. “Good day, Miraculous Physician Hua!”
Miraculous Physician? Qing Shui watched the man and knew that he was from the Nine Continents Medical Sect. The only grudge he had with this organization was with Miraculous Physician Pang, and he didn’t kill the fatty back then. However, the next the time he saw the Fatty, he would make the latter regret. Of course, he wouldn’t kill him, but crippling him will be fun.
Miraculous Physician Pang didn’t have many accomplishments in cultivation, but his medical skills were the real deal. But anyway Qing Shui covered the fact that he had damaged his kidneys. Although it wouldn’t affect his health, he would no longer be able to raise his ‘treasure’. Want to hit on Qing Shui’s women? This would make him suffer a fate worse than death.
Love included loving the person and those connected to them, and the same went for hatred.
Therefore, Qing Shui didn’t have a good impression of Nine Continents Medical Sect. To make it worse, this Miraculous Physician Hua came by with such insolence which deepened Qing Shui’s bad impression of them.
“Do your words even worth a fart around here? Right... Who are you anyway?” Qing Shui just smiled indifferently at him.
Qing Shui knew this was a territory of the Nine Continents Mighty Spear Sect, and the so-called Miraculous Physician Hua did not have the right to fart around like this.
However, a great medical practitioner would demand such respect anywhere they went, just like this case. The Nine Continents Medical Sect was a monstrous power in this region. Thus, no matter where he went, they’d show him respect. After all, there were too many people who owed Nine Continents Medical Sect favors which equaled a huge fortune for them.
Who could guarantee that they’d never fall sick, meet an accident, and be injured throughout their lives? Moreover, the general situation was different from his previous life. The medical practitioners here had the right to not heal you, especially so for Nine Continents Medical Sect. Most of the formidable talents in the medical fields were controlled by them. Meaning, to offend them would result in severe consequences.
“Haha, you’re new, right? Young man, my Nine Continents Medical Sect doesn’t need any territory because we have a right to speak wherever we go. If I allow you to open your business, then you can. If not, you’ll have to obey. So, close this place down and scram!” said Miraculous Physician Hua, looking both arrogant and pretentious. In Qing Shui’s words, he was just a pretentious prick.
“Does it feel exceptionally nice to say those words?” Qing Shui wasn’t angry either. He was keenly aware of his own medical skills and wasn’t afraid of the restriction from Nine Continents Medical Sect.
“You… You… Young man, you’re ignorant about the complexity of things.” Miraculous Physician Hua huffed in anger.
“Others call you Miraculous Physician Hua. However, you can’t even cure your own illness, yet you have the audacity to claim the title. Don’t you find that hilarious?” said Qing Shui coldly.
“Nonsense. What illness do I have? That’s a load of rubbish.” Miraculous Physician Hua was shocked, but he didn’t give it away.
“I despise you even more for being cowardly. It wasn’t a big deal that a medical practitioner can’t heal themselves, yet you don’t even have the courage to admit your shortcomings. From this point alone, I’m sure that you’re the furthest thing away from being a Miraculous Physician.” Qing Shui shook his head in disdain.
Miraculous Physician Hua knew that he couldn’t trust this lad’s words, but they still provoked him. However, he had experienced much and managed to speak calmly. “Hmph, I’ve never called myself a Miraculous Physician. That’s a title others gave me!”
“If it’s given by others, then it means they’re speaking highly of you. Still, you’re unashamed of accepting it.” Qing Shui laughed.
“I didn’t accept it. I’ve never admitted that I am one,” said Miraculous Physician Hua smugly.
“That’s an attempt to retain a good reputation while having bad intentions. You claimed you didn’t admit it, but you’re as arrogant as a rooster. This is enough to show that you have accepted the title in your heart.” Qing Shui spoke the truth; Miraculous Physician Hua had long since acknowledged himself as a Miraculous Physician.
It was a great humiliation to be compared to a rooster. Miraculous Physician Hua was someone of status, and his face turned stoic at Qing Shui’s continuous rudeness. “Since you’re going to open a medical hall, then show us your abilities. If you can’t cure them, then close this place down!”
Miraculous Physician Hua had the utmost confidence regarding his medical skills, and looking for patients was an even easier feat. Since there were many who had registered for the treatment, if Qing Shui couldn’t heal them, then he’d make Qing Shui scram out of here. As for the spectators, they naturally wouldn’t come forward if they saw that Qing Shui couldn’t heal them.
Qing Shui had an ulterior motive to annoy Miraculous Physician Hua. For example, to have Nine Continents Medical Sect’s Miraculous Physician Hua advertised for him. This would have a great effect, humiliating their organization at the same time. He believed there would be others from Nine Continents Medical Sect who would challenge him. Anyway, his reputation would soar when the time came.
The people in Nine Stars Emperor City were strong, but Qing Shui didn’t think there would be an issue in protecting himself. Moreover, on his side, Ling Chen was also an outstanding expert in Nine Stars Emperor City and was one of the strongest in the younger generation.
If his medical skills became well-known, then his influence would be even greater. If only his own Nurture God Realm could break through to the next level, then he wouldn’t have to worry about anyone in Nine Stars Domain, Nine Stars Emperor City.
“Doctor, I’m here to seek treatment.” Qing Shui and Miraculous Physician Hua had separated for a while when a man walked over.
“Register and take a number if you want to seek treatment.” Hao Tian spoke up without hesitance.
“Queue my ass. It’s your honor that I’m here to seek treatment from you. Don’t be shameless. Do you believe when I say that I’d tear this place down?” The man’s eyes were like a venomous snake’s; normal people would have had their souls leave their bodies from his stare.
“I actually don’t believe it. Why don’t you try?” Hao Tian replied dismissively.
“Hao Tian, you’re not his match. Since you’re here to seek treatment, then let’s do that.” Qing Shui walked over and smiled. It was time to start treatment for others anyway.
Hao Tian glared at the man.
“What are you looking at? Do you have a death wish?” The capable man spat with contempt.
“Alright, consultation session has begun. Go register and get a number!” Qing Shui just smiled.
“Lad, did you take my words from before as rubbish?” The man was furious and used the same snake eyes as he glared at Qing Shui.
“Since you mentioned it, then we’ll treat it as rubbish. Don’t waste our time.” Qing Shui waved his hand dismissively as though he was chasing away a fly.
“You’re asking to die! Hmph, then I’ll teach you a lesson!” A fist from the man swung toward Qing Shui.
From this man’s perspective, Qing Shui wouldn’t have high cultivation level as a medical practitioner. He thought he’d be able to kill him with just one punch. It’d be best if it did, as It’d end everything once and for all. He was here to stir trouble anyway.
In the instant before his punch landed on Qing Shui, the latter breathed lightly then crossed his arms. With a twirl, a series of cracking sound could be heard. And along with it, the arm of the man was turned into chinese fried dough instantly.
At this stage, anyone who wanted to compete physically with Qing Shui was seeking death. Furthermore, with Qing Shui’s knowledge of joints, acupoints, and techniques, he could have flung this man eighteen streets down.
