Wang Yao took a book to read in the cottage.
Along with the breathing exercises these days, he felt the Qi in his body become strong and it laced around his arteries and veins. However, Wang Yao was not worried even though it could not go through his entire body. He read some books, so he had been so familiar with the veins in the body, including eight extra meridians and twelve regular meridians. He learned the method of feeling a pulse; he was filled with wisdom and it was buried in his mind.
The way of nature was talked about in Natural Classics and it should flow the essence without any force.
Woof, woof, woof. There was barking outside and then there was the sound of a car roaring faintly.
Wang Yao felt his five senses were strengthened after he had drunk the ancient spring water and practiced inducing his Qi according to the books. He could hear the subtle voice from afar. He had good ears and eyes and his thinking and memory had greatly improved.
There was a Range Rover on the hill and the driver was none other than Tian Yuantu.
He could see the saplings from outside before coming to the herbal field. There seemed to be nothing from the outside and then he kept going to the cottage according to the previous path. However, he was blocked by a stone suddenly when he just walked for a while. The appearance of the stone was so sudden, and it seemed to jump up from the ground. There were little saplings on both sides.
He seemed to have nowhere to go. What was going on?
“Move left and go forward.” There was a voice at that moment. He raised his head and he found that there was a person standing in front of the cottage—Wang Yao.
Tian Yuantu moved left according to the words and he found that there was a sapling. He hesitated and then he found that there was a path leading up to the cottage.
Huh? He was shocked as he stood there.
He had traveled the length and breadth of the country and he had seen so many anecdotes and legends, including the thing that he saw now. Five lines of eight diagrams and the art of becoming invisible—Daoist magic was the thing that he had believed to be in legends. However, he happened to see it right here.
“Yuantu, why do you come here?” Wang Yao asked with smile.
“What is this?” Tian Yuantu was still immersed in the shock.
“I had some free time so I planted some saplings. I also set up an embattlement without realizing it.”
Set up an embattlement without realizing it Some people would be shocked if they knew that this was an accident.
Tian Yuantu admired Wang Yao even more after that. Before, he felt that the young man must be a high master and he knew many things, so he must get along well with him. Yuantu’s initial attitude toward him had changed.
“Ah…” At that time, he did not know what to call Wang Yao since “young man” was not suitable.
“What’s wrong?” Wang Yao was shocked when he saw the embarrassed look on Tian Yuantu’s face.
“Did the illusionary embattlement scare him?”
“Sorry, I am shocked. This is something you only hear about in legends!” After a while, Tian Yuantu was back to himself and sighed.
“You do flatter me. It is not only a thing of legends.” Wang Yao smiled and waved. “Please have a seat.”
Wang Yao served him a drink when Tian Yuantu sat down.
“It is so enjoyable to drink tea every day!” Tian Yuantu said.
“Maybe next year I can give you some.”
Wang Yao looked at the dozens of tea trees that had been planted and thought, They could grow faster with the help of the ancient spring.
“Really? It is deal!” Tian Yuantu smiled.
“Yes. However, it won’t be that much.”
“25 kilograms is okay!”
“Ah, was there something you needed from me?” Wang Yao changed the subject.
“Yes, there is,” Tian Yuantu responded.
“What’s the matter?”
“There are two things: one is that I want to ask for another Anshensan.”
Other people had begged him for it since his friend lying in bed had recovered so much just from one dose of Anshenshan. That really shocked the families, and so here he was begging for another one.
“It is okay.” One does of herbal medicine sold for 260 thousand yuan and he could also get the bonus points, which was a good thing for him. “What’s the next thing?”
“Someone wants to meet you or your master,” Tian Yuantu said. He basically confirmed that there must be a high master behind him when he had contacted him these last few days. If there was no high master behind him, such a sage-like young college boy who was born with so many good things should only exist in movies and books!
“Who is it?” Wang Yao frowned when he heard that.
“Gu Qiuchi, a high master of Chinese medicine.” Tian Yuantu observed the facial change of Wang Yao carefully when he said the name out.
“Master of Chinese medicine…why does he want to see me?”
“Because of the Anshensan.”
Yeah? Wang Yao thought about it and he knew that that master knew the secret. He also knew that there would be trouble. It was said that common people were innocent while the talents were forced to be guilty.
He had a treasure without any ability to protect himself, so he had to look down in front of the dignitary. He would lose something if the counterpart only wanted to see him for personal gain. He was afraid of this as one person, but he also had relatives and friends to help him.
“No,” Wang Yao said. “Yuantu, just make up an excuse for me.”
“Okay!” Tian Yuantu replied.
He planned to make good friends with Wang Yao and he was much more determined when he saw the mysterious embattlement. Gu Qiuchi was a master of Chinese medicine, but he was thousands mile away from them. Without there being a reason, it was hard to meet the master even though Yuantu was so wealthy. However, Wang Yao was different, and he was on the hill so close to Yuantu.
As for the reply to Gu Qiuchi, there were many was to turn down his request.
“Are the herbs mature?”
“It would be for a while.” Wang Yao looked at the common herbs planted by him. With the watering of the ancient spring, the growing speed was surprising—it had been the opposite of the normal growth speed. However, there would still be a long time before harvest.
“When can I come get the medicine?”
“Tomorrow,” Wang Yao responded.
Having chatted with Wang Yao, Tian Yuantu left.
