Song Ruiping badly wanted to ask about why Wang Yao did not personally administer the acupuncture. She also felt that this might make Wang Yao unhappy, so she could only bury the question inside her heart.
Maybe Dr. Wang isn’t proficient in acupuncture?
This was the most reasonable explanation.
Guo Lao’s farewell ceremony was grand yet solemn. It was the first time that Wang Yao met prominent figures that could once only be seen on television. This also reflected the extraordinary status of the old man.
Regarding this farewell, Wang Yao was just a transient guest. Not many people should have noticed him.
However, Guo Zhenghe specifically chatted with him.
“Who is this young man?”
A few people present at the scene had noticed this detail. Therefore, they glanced at Wang Yao more and remembered his appearance.
What? A middle-aged man happened to see the scene, and he had a surprised look on his face.
Why is he here? Does he have relations with the Guo family?
Not everyone could play up to these wealthy nobles, even if they wanted.
Wang Yao did not stay for too long. Firstly, he was just a transient guest and this was only symbolic. Secondly, he did not really understand the rules in these aspects. He only felt constrained, so he left early.
The farewell was considered grand for an old man who used to be thundering, and was glorious for half his life. It was not known if he could see it in heaven.
It happened to be a Saturday that day. Wang Yao gave his second aunt a call. She happened to be on a break as well. Hence, he bought a few things and went to visit his relatives in Jing City.
When he saw his second aunt again, she looked better than the last time. Her complexion was rosy and lustrous, and her face was full of smiles.
In fact, there were times when the pulse did not have to be checked. Instead, the condition of a person’s health could be seen from their facial expressions. This was one of the four ways of diagnosis — “looking.”
When a person was in a good mood with a smile on their face and was joyful all day long, generally there would not be any problem with their health. As the saying goes, laugh and grow fat. On the other hand, the body of a person who frowned all day long and was depressed would still be controllable in the short run. If it was in the long run, the body was sure to be problematic.
Hence, it was very important to have a good mood.
At night, he stayed at his second aunt’s house for dinner. She cooked a table full of dishes.
His second aunt’s health was pretty good. However, when his second uncle came home past 7 o’clock, Wang Yao noticed that he did not look too well.
“Uncle, you’re much thinner than last time.”
“Yes. Recently, I’m far more busy with company matters, so I’m tired.”
“Should I take a look?”
Her uncle sat down while smiling. Wang Yao stretched out his hand to check his pulse.
“It’s not a big problem.” After a while, Wang Yao moved his hand away. “Your stomach is not well, so you need to take good care of it. There are some problems with the lumbar vertebra. I think it’s because you’ve been driving for too long.”
His uncle was a veteran of the military. When he was in the army, he was the driver of a senior officer for over 20 years. Drivers generally had poor lumbar vertebra and cervical vertebra. This was also considered as an occupational hazard.
“Yes, it’s an old illness,” Li Xianghong said with a smile.
“Yao, is there a way?” Zhang Xiufang, who was standing to the side, asked. She also knew about her husband’s affliction.
“Yes, by massaging,” Wang Yao replied with a smile. “I’ll give you a demonstration. If you have time, you can also relax Uncle’s muscles.”
“Okay, I’ll learn it then,” Zhang Xiufang responded.
Wang Yao then began to massage Li Xianghong very slowly. The main method to massage the neck area was by rubbing, which was easy to learn. Ordinary people would not be able to learn the methods of massaging the acupoints, and the channels and collaterals within a short period of time. Therefore, he only taught some simple techniques of exerting strength. On the whole, the positions were not bad. Hence, there would still be an effect.
As Wang Yao exerted strength, Li Xianghong felt the area around his neck starting to heat up. The soreness he felt previously had also begun to subside slowly.
“How do you feel, Uncle?”
“Good. I feel quite comfortable. Yao, you know quite a lot of things!”
“Haha. This is a medical skill,” Wang Yao replied with a laugh.
After massaging the neck, Wang Yao began to massage his waist. At this time, his uncle had to lie flat. The method of exerting strength here was somewhat different. Wang Yao tried to explain as simple as possible and highlighted some points which she had to pay attention to.
The force should be exerted from light to heavy. Feelings such as bloating and soreness were still acceptable. If there was a prickling pain, it should be stopped immediately.
Massaging did not seem to cause any harm to the human body. However, many people had injured their vertebrae due to their misunderstanding. On the other hand, there were less people who damaged their internal organs.
Wang Yao ended the massage after more than an hour.
“Phew, it’s so relaxing! You’re awesome!” Li Xianghong said. He sincerely appreciated it.
The massage had made his neck and waist feel a lot more comfortable. Moreover, it seemed that even a day’s fatigue had disappeared by a lot.
“Eh, it’s already late. Let’s have dinner now!”
“Yes, let’s eat.”
That day was Saturday. Wang Yao’s cousin had just returned home from school.
She was still tall and skinny like before. No, she seemed to have become even skinnier.
Looking at her cousin, Wang Yao slightly frowned.
“This isn’t a good thing!”
Seeing Wang Yao’s abnormal reaction, Zhang Xiufang, who was to the side, asked gently, “What’s wrong, Yao?”
“Nothing. I suddenly thought of something,” Wang Yao replied with a smile.
While they were eating, Wang Yao only had conversations with his uncle and aunt. He only spoke a few words to his cousin.
After dinner, Wang Yao chatted with his aunt’s family for a bit and his cousin sat with them to the side. She seemed to be worried and looked absent-minded.
It was past nine o’clock at night when Wang Yao left.
“Aunty, Uncle, goodbye.”
“Okay. Drive safe.”
They only turned around and went up the stairs after seeing Wang Yao’s car had left.
In the car, Wang Yao said to Chen Ying who came to pick him up, “Didn’t I say you don’t have to pick me up?”
“I don’t have anything to do there anyway. I can take the opportunity to come out and get a breath of fresh air,” Chen Ying replied with a smile.
“Okay.” Wang Yao looked out of the car window.
In his second aunt’s house.
“Eh, do you think Nana has something in her mind lately?” Zhang Xiufang asked her husband.
“I think she’s a bit off too. When we were eating just now, she looked absent-minded,” Li Xianghong answered.
“Why don’t we spare some time and ask her teacher?”
“Okay. Don’t let her know about it.”
The couple usually indulged their daughter quite a lot.
“12th grade. She should not be over 18 years old?” Wang Yao said in the car, without any context.
“What?” Chen Ying, who was driving, was startled.
“Nothing. I just think that students these days mature early!”
“Indeed, they mature pretty early. Don’t universities now allow students to get married and have children?”
“Get married and have children?” Wang Yao laughed.
“University is a place for students to gain knowledge and learn some abilities. There can be sensual romance, but it can’t be overwhelming,” Wang Yao said.
“Moreover, what does an 18-year-old young girl know?” He was a little angry when he said that.
At the end of the day, she was still his relative. When his cousin had a problem, his second aunt and uncle were actually the ones who were worried.
“What’s wrong with you today, sir?” Chen Ying asked curiously. She felt that Dr. Wang’s behavior that day was a bit abnormal. He didn’t look bothered, but he was actually a little mad.
After returning to the small courtyard, Wang Yao walked back and forth in the small courtyard under the night sky.
How should this matter be handled?
He had never been this awkward before.
She was a high school student and she was his own cousin. With the faint smell of smoke on her body and by looking at the color of her eyebrows and her walking posture, she seemed to have actually lost her chastity!
She might even be pregnant!
Wang Yao drew a long breath.
He had understood three out of the four ways of diagnosis. Through his own exploration, he had a rough idea about the most mysterious way of diagnosing — “looking.” He was afraid that he was probably right about the incident in his second aunt’s house.
Until late at night, Wang Yao had not thought about a way to tell his second aunt about this matter.
Seeing that Wang Yao had not gone to sleep despite the hour, Chen Ying asked, “Sir, do you need any help?”
“I’m fine. Go to bed.” Wang Yao sighed and went back into the house.
Chen Ying looked at Wang Yao’s back.
Is it because of his relatives?
18 years old. Is she his cousin?
She could roughly figure out what happened just by a few words.
Is she in a relationship?
A woman like Chen Ying was extremely intelligent. She could get a fairly accurate message just by a word or two.
