Translator: TNTG Editor: alteringviews
Everyone had been caught off guard.
Chen Yi Xian regained her senses when the kettle hit the ground and yelled while glowering, “What’s the rush all about?! Don’t you know the rules?”
The waitress wearing cheongsam immediately turned pale and frantically apologised.
The culprit who had just rushed apologised in frenzy when he realised the mistake he had committed, “I’m very sorry, Miss Chen! This was unintentional. I need Doctor Ye’s help. Doctor Ye, is your hand ok?”
The culprit was Deng Ping Zhou, the clubhouse manager. He’s another typical side-character from the novel. His appearance in the novel was for the sole purpose of introducing notable people to Ye Tian which will then lead to some face smacking scenes.
At this time, Ye Tia’s protagonist charisma was at play. He ignored the pain on his hand and magnanimously asked, “It’s nothing too severe. Why don’t you first tell what’s so important?”
Deng Pin Zhou quickly answered, “Elder Mu suddenly had an asthma and heart attack on the gold course. We have already called the ambulance but looking at his current condition, I fear…”
“Elder Mu? Could he be that Elder Mu of Shui Mu Group?” Chen Yi Xian face had turned grim after the shock.
Shui Mu Group was one of the giants in the local financial sector. Its businesses encompass financial securities, insurance, commercial banking and other financial related services. The Elder Mu in question is one of the founders of Shui Mu Group. Although he had now retired from the business scene, without a doubt he’s still one of the business world overlords.
For such an honourable and extraordinary person to suffer a mishap at the clubhouse, it’s not surprising for Deng Ping Zhou to panic. As he was anxiously waiting for the ambulance arrival, he had suddenly recalled Ye Tian was also at the clubhouse. This miraculous doctor had previously cured a very notable people in the clubhouse. Thus, he couldn’t help rushing here to ask for help.
“Quickly bring me there!”
Ye Tian’s virtue as a doctor quickly surfaced up. He immediately set aside the negotiation and followed Deng Ping Zhou to the gold course.
Chen Yi Xian hesitated for a moment before she quickly picked up her handbag and followed along. As she was wearing high-heels, she quickly lost sight of Ye Tian.
After stepping out of Ling Xiao Clubhouse’s main building, Chen Yi Xian was heading towards the golf course when she bumped into Song Shi Cheng.
“You! How come you’re here?”
Chen Yi Xian was somewhat feeling guilty right because she had just recently had the thought of betraying the Song family. It was also the first time they have met since the engagement party.
“You make it sound like this is not a place I should appear.” Song Shi Cheng was wearing sunglasses and had his hands in his pocket. He was smiling as he dramatically asked, “Or were you planning something shady that you don’t want me to find out?
“How can that be? You’re just overthinking the matter.” Chen Yi Xian quickly beat around the bush. “If you have nothing important, why don’t you accompany me for a walk? The weather today is very nice. We didn’t get a chance to talk since the engagement party.”
Song Shi Cheng didn’t really care and just set his sight elsewhere. “I heard someone said something major had happened at the golf course. A lot of people had gone there. Why don’t we join the excitement?”
“Sure, let’s go.” Chen Yi Xian is feeling this young master is getting more mysterious. She was worried her secret negotiation with Ye Tian was exposed. Thus she warily said while walking on the grass field, “I bumped into Ye Tian just now. Before I can even say anything to him, he had already rushed off towards the golf course under the invitation of clubhouse manager to treat a patient. I heard the patient was Elder Mu of Shui Mu Group.”
Song Shi Cheng’s sunglasses had partially masked his expression. Although he had just grunted in acknowledgement, he was actually churning inside.
The financial world’s overlord was meant to his next writing focus. The overlord was prepared to give Ye Tian another influential supporter. Furthermore, it was meant to be another avenue for Ye Tian to display his miraculous medical skill. As such, he had already laid the groundwork by mentioning Elder Mu had high blood pressure and heart disease. This will smoothly help Ye Tian to establish his patient doctor relationship in the future.
With the information provided by Chen Yi Xian, Song Shi Cheng could now guess that Ye Tian was rushing to build his seven-floor pagoda. (TN: The author was referring to the Chinese idiom; ‘saving a life is more meritorious than building a seven-floor pagoda’)
How could something like this happen at such a crucial moment? He had just cursed him with the Cursed Strawman. So, how could his Destiny be so heaven defying that such a major fortuitous encounter still falls on his lap?
As they were nearing the golf course, both of them could see a crowd surrounding a gazebo. The atmosphere there was rather intense and flurried.
“Why don’t I predict what will happen soon…” Song Shi Cheng had decided to tease Chen Yi Xian seeing her still maintaining her smoke screen. “The overlord of Shui Mu Group is currently very ill but the ambulance had yet to arrive. At the rate things are going, the overlord will stop breathing soon. Now that Doctor Ye had arrived, he will now attempt to save Elder Mu with his superb medical skill.”
“What are you blabbering about? You’ve been acting weird.” Chen Yi Xian can’t make head or tail to what Song Shi Cheng was saying. As she approached the crowd, she could see Ye Tian was about to use his silver needles to apply acupuncture on the elderly man lying on the ground.
While Chen Yi Xian was still stunned by the accuracy of Song Shi Cheng’s prediction, she could hear Song Shi Cheng continued making his prediction, “Based on past approach, Ye Tian will used his silver needle to treat Elder Mu. After that, Elder Mu will be fine thus embarrassing those have been questioning his medical skills. Then, the Mu family headed by Elder Mu will express their gratitude to Ye Tian. Perhaps they will then help Ye Tian to build his career or break the marriage agreement between me and Xiao Yan. Anyway… I believe this script predicted by me will soon move in the opposite direction.”
Song Shi Cheng had noticed that Ye Tian’s hand was trembling while holding his silver needle. As he looked closely, he saw that Ye Tian’s hand was blistering!
This must definitely be the Cursed Strawman masterpiece!
While Song Shi Cheng was predicting what will happen, Ye Tian was secretly grumbling. His right hand was injured causing his grip on the needle to be unstable. Seeing that Elder Mu’s life was hanging on the line, he could only switch to using his left hand.
Unfortunately, his left was less agile. He only placed the needle after thinking about it for quite some time.
Everyone who saw it was frightened. Even Elder Mu’s bodyguards and assistant couldn’t help but questioned, “Do you know what you’re doing? If anything were to happen to Elder Mu, you won’t be able to bear the consequences!”
“Everybody, Doctor Ye had successfully cured many notable people in the past. Even Chief Ma Jin Biao was full of praises for Doctor Ye superb medical skill. Why don’t you give him a try since the ambulance have not arrived yet.” Although Deng Ping Zhou had helped to defend Ye Tian, he was already regretting his action. He had already known Ye Tian’s was in a bad state today yet he had still brought him here. This was no different than him asking for trouble. Now that the situation had reach this point, he could only pray while anxiously asking at the same time, “Doctor Ye, are you sure you’ll be able to do this?”
“I’ll try my best!” Ye Tian expression had turned cold. Aside from his injured right hand, he’s also feeling ill at ease today. The combination of these two factors had disrupted his rhythm despite his vast medical experience.
This had resulted in him not being able to fully control his medical skill.
After observing the elderly man symptoms, Ye Tian focused his attention on using his left hand to apply the needle on an important acupoint. Right at this moment, a golf ball had flown over out of nowhere and had coincidentally landed on his left hand!
Everyone who was watching was distressed. Even Ye Tian was scared out of his wits and was dumbly looking at the hand holding the needle.
The needle had already pierced Elder Mu’s skin but unfortunately, the angle was inaccurate
The needle had unfortunately pierced Elder Mu’s skin from an incorrect angle! This had caused blood to surge out from the puncture wound at a visible rate.
“It seems like my prediction was spot on. The script had gone awry and went in the opposite direction.” Song Shi Cheng was thoroughly enjoying the good show. He then seriously analyzed the current situation, “With this, not only had Ye Tian failed to cure his patient, he had also offended a very influential tycoon. This incident might even severely affect his business plan. In this way, Ye Tian’s value to your family will be greatly diminished. Consequently, I can now be assured that my marriage agreement with your little sister will proceed smoothly. So, future sister-in-law of mine, is my evaluation correct?”
Song Shi Cheng was glowing brightly. He was grinning at Chen Yi Xian, revealing his row of white teeth.
