Announcement (Updated 01/22/2019):
For the past few months we have had readers asking us to develop a mobile app, and for a long time, we did not see the necessity in making one. We still don't. But, how can we outright deny our reader's requests? We can't! So, we have decided to provide an opportunity. Should our support on patreon reach 300 Patrons, we will develop a mobile app for Creative Novels! Link Here. P.S: We have something big planned if we hit 650 Patrons.
Gu Chengya didn’t know that the professional doctor Su Qiubai was talking about was actually Hua Tuo.
Not only that, that shameless driver even brought Zhang Zhongjing back along with him.
While waiting for him to return, Gu Chengya played with the two puppies. While this was all happening, the Gu family was desperately looking for her!
“Haven’t you found Chengya yet?”
A gloomy middle-aged man screamed into his phone, nearly driven crazy with worry.
Gu Zhanchuan anxiously replied. He regretted simply letting Gu Chengya go off on her own. That young lady had always been sensible. She usually never left without leaving a note, which was why he had been taken off guard this time!
“You must find Gu Chengya in the next two hours. After that, I can’t give Grandpa Gu anymore excuses.”
The middle-aged man took a deep breath and finally told Gu Zhanchuan, before hanging up the phone.
The middle-aged man was actually Gu Chengya’s father, Gu Qianshan!
He too was aware of how precious his daughter was in Grandpa Gu’s heart. If Grandpa Gu found out that Gu Chengya had disappeared, he would be really furious.
Besides, Gu Qianshan was worried as well!
Grandpa Gu isn’t the only one who loves Gu Chengya, I love her too!
My daughter has suffered far more than others, plus her condition worsens every day, could it be…
Halfway through the notion, Gu Qianshan, who had never cried before, could feel his eyes filling up with tears.
Su Qiubai didn’t know that he had caused the Gu family so much worry, just because he wanted to examine Gu Chengya’s illness.
After Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing were seated in the car, he immediately proceeded to drive back through the shuttle channel. The two old men sat at the back and kept asking what was going on. He could only roughly explain as he didn’t know as well.
After parking the car, the three of them went into his house.
Just as Gu Chengya was contemplating calling Gu Zhanchuan, she saw Su Qiubai leading two old men in green robes into the house.
“Hurry, have a seat. I’ve brought two doctors to have a look at you. You’re lucky… buy one, get one free.”
The last line was secretly whispered to Gu Chengya. Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing didn’t hear it. Although she clearly heard it, she didn’t understand what it meant.
Upon first sight of Gu Chengya, Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing frowned simultaneously and strode towards her.
Judging from their outfits, Gu Chengya’s first impression of the two old men were that they were weird. However, after noticing their eyes that looked as if they were searching for something deep within in her, she felt that something was wrong; she subconsciously took a step back.
“Lady, please don’t be afraid. We just want to help you.”
Hua Tuo might’ve noticed her behavior, he spoke with a smile.
“Yes, they’re both godly doctors. You don’t have to worry.”
Su Qiubai assured. Gu Chengya thought that he was just rambling; she didn’t know that he was speaking the truth.
However, with their level, Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing no longer cared about names anymore. They were purely focusing on her.
After feeling her pulse, the two old men became silent. Their actions gave Gu Chengya the suspicion that Su Qiubai had been scammed.
Due to her strange illness, the Gu family had invited several doctors throughout the years. She had seen many people in the same kind of robes before; they always acted like they were professionals but they all became speechless in the end.
“Brother Zhong Jing, what do you think about this sickness?”
Hua Tuo suddenly broke the silence and asked Zhang Zhongjing with a grin.
“Acupuncture with golden needles, reposition the venous vein, and then rejuvenate the Qi essence… Great!”
Zhang Zhongjing also smiled. Looking at Hua Tuo, he replied.
“Haha, both of us have the same thought.”
Hua Tuo stroke his beard. The two men laughed together once again.
Gu Chengya was intrigued. The two scammers were well prepared. She hadn’t seen this type of trick before.
On the other hand, Su Qiubai secretly twitched his lips. He had initially thought that he could learn some ancient godly secrets from the two old doctors. However… he could only understand the word “Great”!
“Since you know what’s going on, then hurry up and treat her.” Su Qiubai interrupted the two old men who were praising each other’s skills.
Upon hearing this, Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing became serious.
“It’s true, the girl’s illness is a danger to her life, and she must be cured as soon as possible… I’ll do it.”
The last sentence was directed to Zhang Zhongjing. After all, they were both doctors, Hua Tuo respected Zhang Zhongjing. But since he was older, he took the initiative to treat her.
Zhang Zhongjing nodded in agreement.
Realizing that the two old men were going to perform acupuncture on her after a short diagnostic of her illness, Gu Chengya was just plain suspicious.
“You can’t cure my illness.”
She wasn’t worried about Hua Tuo hurting her since she was going to die anyway. She only didn’t want them to waste their effort, lest the old men embarrass themselves.
“Oh? Why can’t I?”
That statement was new to Hua Tuo. What she lacked was just some congenital Qi essence. Just a single acupuncture treatment and she’ll have recovered. Why does she say that it’s untreatable?
Gu Chengya softly sighed. She also felt helpless.
Do I need to tell this old man personally that my illness could only be cured by Hua Tuo? What if then he becomes even more unsatisfied after that?
With that, she simply agreed for the treatment.
Su Qiubai was relieved. If Hua Tuo said that it could be cured, then he would certainly know how to do so. Besides… the other godly doctor, Zhang Zhongjing was there too!
No one would ever think that there would be the possibility for two of the godliest doctors in the history of China gathered together in that small room to give treatment.
Hua Tuo took out some golden needles from his robe, and asked Gu Chengya to lie down before he started to prick her with the first needle.
From the side, Su Qiubai could clearly see that Hua Tuo’s temperament had completely changed after he took out the golden needles. He didn’t look like an old man anymore. In fact his every movement was smooth and swift, it was very penetrating and shocking.
However, the door of the room was suddenly slammed open. Hua Tuo frowned as he held onto the golden needles.
Everyone turned towards the door.
It was Gu Zhanchuan along with several bodyguards in black who stood behind him.
Gu Zhanchuan ignored Su Qiubai and the two old men. He ran towards Gu Chengya in a rush after spotting her laying on the bed. Gu Chengya didn’t expect Gu Zhanchuan to find her here. After shooting an apologetic smile to Su Qiubai, she got up.
“What are you trying to do? If you hurt our mistress, I’ll never let you go.”
Seeing that Gu Chengya was fine, Gu Zhanchuan recalled that the old man had been poking a needle at her. The anger and anxiety that he had been suppressing finally broke out.
The last strand of sense he had left, reminded him that Su Qiubai was not someone to be trifled with. He had seen how horrific Su Qiubai’s brother was, so he could only raise his voice and demand an answer, instead of starting a fight.
Su Qiubai was already furious that these people had broken into his house. Thus, he got even more heated up after hearing those words.
The heck, why is my kindness being treated like this?! If I hadn’t noticed that Gu Chengya was close to dying, would I have taken her to my house, and travel so far away just to invite Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing?
“You’d better get your facts straight, I’m saving her life!”
Stepping forward, Su Qiubai glared at Gu Zhanchuan without showing any weakness.
“Treat her?” Upon hearing Su Qiubai’s words, Gu Zhanchuan took a sidelong glance at Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing, before continuing.
“With these two scammers?”
Just as his words left his mouth, the expressions on Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing immediately changed.
Who are they?! They’re godly doctors! Do you know what these godly doctors can do? Claiming that they could cure the dead or heal the dead people’s bones was an understatement!
Inviting them to treat an illness was really a rare opportunity!
To put it in a wretched way, Gu Zhanchuan’s word was equivalent to crushing Gu Chengya’s final hope to live.
“Scammers? Hehe… If it wasn’t for my friend Su’s invitation, we’d never come here… As for this lady’s illness, no one except the both of us can possibly treat her. Goodbye!”
Although Hua Tuo’s attitude towards Su Qiubai was good, the old man did have his own temper. He would still inform Cao Cao that he needed to surgically open Cao Cao’s head to examine the sickness, even though Cao Cao’s knife was already stabbed into his neck.[TLN: Recall the previous chapters where Su Qiubai told Hua Tuo to not treat Cao Cao. It was because Cao Cao would end up killing him.]
Having that said, Hua Tuo and Zhang Zhongjing immediately wanted to leave.
The most anxious person at that moment was Su Qiubai. No wonder it was so difficult to be a good person. If Gu Zhanchuan was the one who was sick, he certainly wouldn’t care about him!

However, Gu Chengya was innocent and she obviously still had the chance to survive. He couldn’t just let the opportunity slip away!
But with everything that had just happened… he had no way to persuade the two old men; he could only let them go downstairs first, and send them back later.
Gu Chengya was somewhat taken aback. From the moment Gu Zhanchuan entered the room, before she could speak, the situation had already turned sour.
She apologetically peeked at Su Qiubai and whispered, “I’m sorry…”
Su Qiubai could only shake his head in helplessness, not knowing what to say to her. In the end, he just glared at Gu Zhanchuan coldly.
“You are killing her, do you know that?”
Su Qiubai’s gaze sent shivers down Gu Zhanchuan’s spine, stunning him in place.
Gu Zhanchuan was somewhat defensive of Su Qiubai due to his brother, but with Su Qiubai’s strong imposing manner now… he felt like he would need to reconsider this taxi driver again.
“Mr. Su, we’ll think of ways to cure our mistress’ illness. You don’t have to worry!”
Gu Zhanchuan coldly replied after taking a deep breath.
Upon hearing that, Su Qiubai took another step forward and stood just a meter away from Gu Zhanchuan, he uttered two words.
