Chapter 65: I Can Do It Too 2
Su Xiaolu looked at Old Wu and said with a smile, “Grandpa Wu, you taught me. I learned it when you inserted the needle into Big Brother Zhou Heng just now, but I don’t know how to remove the needle yet. But it doesn’t matter. I know it all now.”
As Su Xiaolu spoke, she patted her chest confidently. “I finally know how to treat Big Brother and Second Brother. I can administer acupuncture to them.”
“Wait, you learned it just by watching me do it??”
Old Wu could not suppress his excitement.
She was amazingly talented. She learned all that just by watching him. If not for his good health, he felt that he would have fainted from excitement.
Su Xiaolu nodded seriously. “Yes, it’s not difficult.”
Su Xiaolu did not blush or pant. This was not difficult for her. Of course, this was all thanks to her twenty years of hard work in her previous life. In her previous life, she had suffered all the hardships of studying. In this life, she just needed to amaze everyone.
Old Wu took a few deep breaths before saying, “Little girl, you don’t know how capable you are. You said that you’ve learned it all, so you even know how to perform acupuncture?”
A smart three-year-old girl said that it was not difficult to perform acupuncture. God knew how many years he had spent learning how to do it. It took a lot of effort to check the pulse and understand every acupoint. People called him a divine doctor because people ignored the fact that he had studied hard for decades.
But now, Su Xiaolu’s appearance had overturned his hard work. He was pleasantly surprised and envious. Only those with talent were worthy of being called divine doctors.
Su Xiaolu nodded under Old Wu’s excited gaze. “Yes.”
After Su Xiaolu finished speaking, she focused on removing the silver needles for Zhou Heng. She sighed and said, “Big Brother and Second Brother’s bodies are very strange. I didn’t know what to do, but now I know, I just need to do acupuncture.”
“Xiaolu, do you think you can cure Big Brother and Second Brother?”
Su Xiaoling covered her mouth in shock. She seemed to have recalled something and exclaimed, “So in the past, you didn’t use the grass juice to feed the chickens and ducks for nothing?”
Sometimes, the chickens and ducks at home were listless and they did not know what illness they had. Usually, Su Xiaolu would randomly grab some grass to knead them into juice and feed it to the chickens and ducks.
They all thought that it was a coincidence. Now, it all made sense. That… might not be a coincidence. Her sister was a divine doctor.
Su Xiaolu said in embarrassment, “I’ve tried many times. Some are useful and some are useless, but I remembered the useful ones. So I didn’t need to try again the next time.”
Su Xiaoling looked at the innocent Su Xiaolu and was shocked. Her fourth sister was so smart. Why didn’t they notice this before?
“Big Brother Zhou Heng, I’ll do it for you tomorrow. It won’t hurt so much if I do it for you. Grandpa Wu didn’t do it correctly in several places. I’ve already learned it. I can do it better than him.”
Su Xiaolu said proudly to Zhou Heng.
Zhou Heng was also in shock. He could not help but look at Old Wu.
Old Wu sighed and asked Su Xiaolu, “Little girl, what else do you know?”
Su Xiaolu looked at Old Wu seriously and said, “I don’t know yet. No one taught me.”
Old Wu looked at Su Xiaolu seriously. His expression became serious as he took a clean silver needle and pricked his wrist. He said to Su Xiaolu, “Little girl, do you know where to insert the needle?”
Old Wu sealed one of his acupuncture points and grimaced in pain. He felt that he was crazy, but when he saw Su Xiaolu’s serious expression, he felt that he should be crazy.
Su Xiaolu did not hesitate. She took a clean silver needle and inserted it into Old Wu’s hand. She was so decisive when she inserted the needle. In almost a single breath, the needle that Old Wu had inserted himself bounced out and fell to the ground as if it had been pushed out by a stream of air.
Su Xiaolu smiled and naturally took out the needle. She said to Old Wu proudly, “Grandpa Wu, did I do well?”
Old Wu’s eyes seemed to be on fire as he nodded and praised, “Good, very good. Little girl, your talent in medicine is outstanding.”
“Little girl, you said that you don’t know much. I happen to know a little. Are you willing to learn from me?”
He had yet to find an heir to his legacy, but Su Xiaolu’s talent made his blood boil. Wasn’t this the talented disciple he had always wanted?
It was also the first time he had thought of taking in a disciple.
Su Xiaolu looked at Su Xiaoling and then at Old Wu. She said to him seriously, “Grandpa Wu, I have to ask my parents.”
To save Eldest Brother and Second Brother, he needed Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao’s approval and trust.
“Very well. When your father returns this evening, I will speak to them myself.”
Old Wu felt that it was a pity that his talent was almost buried, but at the same time, he was glad that he had discovered it early. Su Xiaolu had such outstanding talent and would definitely surpass him in the future.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao did not know anything about medicine, so they naturally did not understand how talented Su Xiaolu was.
But as soon as he explained it to them, they would understand. At the very least, studying medicine could not be a bad thing.
After Su Xiaolu studied medicine, she would be in high demand wherever she went in the future, so Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao would definitely not stop her.
Su Xiaolu smiled sweetly as if she still did not understand anything.
She asked expectantly, “Big Brother Zhou Heng, can I do it for you tomorrow?”
Zhou Heng glanced at Old Wu, then looked at Su Xiaolu and nodded gently. “Yes.”
Old Wu did not say no. Zhou Heng knew that Old Wu would not mess around with his legs, so Old Wu’s approval meant that Su Xiaolu could indeed do better.
Su Xiaolu smiled and said to Old Wu with satisfaction, “Grandpa Wu, can you lend me this needle?”
Old Wu exhaled. “Little girl, if you want it, just take it. Take it as a greeting gift from me.”
Zhou Heng looked at Old Wu in shock, but he recovered in an instant. It was said that the treasures of the Minggu Medical Teachings were only passed down to disciples. These treasures were rarely used, and seeing them was like seeing the doctors themselves. When he was in the palace, it was impossible for the imperial physicians to even take a look at this needle. Now, he easily gave them to a three-year-old girl as a greeting gift.
Zhou Heng knew very well what this meant.
However, this was Old Wu’s private matter. He had no right to ask.
“Thank you, Grandpa Wu.”
Su Xiaolu thanked him with a sweet smile. She wanted to take him as her master and Old Wu wanted to take her in as his disciple as well. She would be a good disciple. If this master needed her, she could take care of him in his old age. However, looking at Old Wu’s body, it would not be a problem for him to live for another few decades.
Su Xiaolu was the happiest now. She could finally save her two brothers, Su Chong and Su Hua. She would definitely do her best to get their lives back on track.
