C7 Five Flavors
The birds chirped in the early morning.
He opened his eyes wearily and felt weak all over, every muscle in his body aching with the pain of being crushed. For the first time in his life, he had a deep suspicion of the purpose of saving someone.
She had a total of one bed under her. Fortunately, there was a broken bed in the room next door. Otherwise, she would have to sleep on the table!
Not only that, but last night when the man suddenly had a high fever, she had worked herself to death for the whole day.
He pounded the bedplate, grinned, and walked over to the counter. The man's face was relaxed, his expression calm, but his complexion was still sickly pale. Touching his forehead, his body temperature had returned to normal.
"Qi and Blood Deficiency." He held his wrist for a moment, listening intently. "It looks like it's going to take a lot of time," he said with a sigh.
No wonder, after all, so much blood had been lost.
"Let's go to the butcher's house." He stretched and went out to get some water to wash his face.
The butcher's house was at the bottom of the ramp, on the road leading to the village entrance. There weren't many pig farmers in this area. Usually, there would be a lot of other villagers coming over to buy meat. In addition to the few early rendezvous in the month, the business was pretty good.
By the time he arrived, the butcher's shop had been set up outside the courtyard, and a line of small and small rows had been set up.
"Good morning, Sister Zhao," he said to the young woman who was helping him.
His wife's surname was Zhao and her name was Lichun. She had a delicate figure and fair skin. She was one of the beauties in the Li family village. Because of his good looks, he was often taken advantage of by the village's ruffians. After he got married, his husband didn't get bullied anymore. However, he still couldn't stop thinking about his previous grievances, causing his chest to feel stuffy.
When she heard that Li Er Lai had been taught a lesson, she was the first to clap her hands in joy.
"Good morning, Doctor," Zhao Lichun said, pleased to see him. She quickly took the ribs off the hook and smiled. I'll have the boss chop it for you. "
"A little more. I want to make some soup." He smiled.
Zhao Lichun agreed, took the weighing, and sent it to the butcher in the back.
He stood there for a moment, then heard a few angry shouts coming from the courtyard, followed by a woman's anguished pleas for mercy. Her expression gradually turned serious, and she had a bad premonition.
Sure enough, after a while, Zhao Lichun walked out with her head lowered. She held the wrapped pork chop in her hand and handed it to her with a trembling hand.
"Sister Zhao, what's wrong?" he asked, his eyes studying her bare skin. A few purplish red long marks were clearly left on his neck. They were wounds that had not been there a moment ago.
"He hit you?!" He was so angry that he was about to charge in and settle his debts, but Zhao Lichun stopped him.
"Doctor!" "Don't!" The young woman pleaded through her tears, "It's my fault that I didn't listen to him. "Don't mess with him."
"What does he want you to do?" No matter how angry he was, he couldn't hit his wife like that!
Zhao Lichun bit her lips in embarrassment, not knowing what to say.
"Is it because of me?"
Zhao Lichun couldn't hide it from him so she confessed, "He said that you were a doctor who had poisoned people and that you were not a good doctor. Instead, you pushed a man into the house before you got married. You're not a good woman, and you want me to stay away from you."
"I see," he said, sighing. "I'm not going to buy meat anymore. But it's definitely not the first time he's hit you.
Mrs Zhao wiped away her tears and said, "It's fine to marry a chicken to a chicken, and to marry a dog to a dog to a dog. Usually, he treats me rather well …"
Would they be willing to fight one another? He bit his lower lip and felt speechless. After paying in silver taels, she picked up the plate of ribs and left in a tired manner.
All the way, his heart was heavy.
Butcher family violence is not advisable, but the words are in line with the judgment of this era of women.
When father taught the art of medicine, he once said that as a doctor, it was not a big deal to die before you. She was sure she was right, and she wouldn't change her rules for anyone. However, she had left that strange man at home, leading to the death of her mother. Before she had suffered any setbacks, others had already suffered. How could her conscience be at ease with her?
"Pushing a man into his home instead of marrying him …" He shook his head with a bitter smile. She would only stay here for three to five years. Could it be that she needed to find a family marriage in order to treat people's illnesses?
It was simply wishful thinking, what nonsense was this!
"Besides, even if we were to marry someone, the Fu family might not agree to accept someone as a patient!" Luo Zhen scratched his head with a frown as he was full of annoyance. Suddenly, he remembered the handsome face of the patient who had lost too much blood. A light bulb had been lit up on his head.
She had an idea!
