Chapter 15: Promoting your own product
Translator: Legge Editor: Legge
Ren Xiaosu sulked as he left. He wanted to beat up the young doctor, but his reason was unjustified. After all, he had intended to steal the docs occupation.
He had to become a doctor. Ren Xiaosu completely agreed with Yan Liuyuans point of view. The physician profession could very easily obtain the gratitude of others.
But how was he going to become a doctor if he did not have any medical skills?
After he reached the school, he started wracking his brains. Then he remembered the scene when they stepped out of the pawnshop last night.
The woman was crying loudly at the door of the clinic while the man was bleeding nonstop. In the end, his heart stopped.
Ren Xiaosu unwittingly looked at the skin between his thumb and index finger. Eh, the infected wound had scabbed over today?
So that black ointment not only reduces inflammation, it can even quickly heal a wound?
Ren Xiaosu had been wounded before, so he knew a great deal about the healing process of the human body. For example, a wound caused by a sparrows peck would take at least seven days to scab over.
Wait a minute! Ren Xiaosu got an idea on how he could become a doctor. If that person at the clinic could become a doctor through deception and bragging, why couldnt he also become a doctor? This was especially true as he had a miracle medicine on him now.
Wouldnt it be fine if he just opened a clinic that specialized in knife wounds? He could just stitch up the patient and then apply some black ointment onto it and the job would be done!
Back when the old doctor was still alive, he mentioned that he would not do suturing because he did not have the necessary sterilization equipment. If outside bacteria stayed in the body, they could kill the patient, so it would be useless even if he did stitch them up.
The old doctor understood this.
However, it was different for Ren Xiaosu. He did not have to worry about this at all!
Thinking of this, Ren Xiaosu got an idea. He even thought of how he could make some arrangements for Xiaoyu in the future.
Xiaoyus plan for the future was to see if she could get some sewing or patching jobs to earn some money to make a living. But Ren Xiaosu felt that this would be very difficult for her. If she were to offer this service in the stronghold, there would probably be a lot of customers looking for her.
But as everyone in town was poor, they could do their own sewing and patching work at home. Who would want to waste their money on a service like this?
Ren Xiaosu thought that since she wasnt going to be able to sew clothes, she could sew wounds instead. But he did not know if Xiaoyu would faint at the sight of blood.
Ren Xiaosu even specially went to inquire with the schoolteacher, Zhang Jinglin. After all, he knew more than most people.
Zhang Jinglin looked at Ren Xiaosu in surprise. "You want to open a clinic that specializes in treating knife wounds? Do you have sutures?"
Ren Xiaosu thought for a while and asked, "Whats a suture?"
Zhang Jinglin was dumbfounded. "Then do you have anesthetics?"
"Whats an anesthetic?"
Zhang Jinglin was at a loss for words.
In this moment, Zhang Jinglin realized that Ren Xiaosu was utterly unprepared.
Yan Liuyuan still behaved himself in front of Ren Xiaosu. "Thank you, Big Sister Xiaoyu."
Xiaoyu quickly said, "Stop hitting Liuyuan."
"I can spoil him now, but no one will spoil him when hes on his own," Ren Xiaosu explained. Then he also said in a serious tone, "Thank you, Big Sister Xiaoyu."
"Youre welcome." Xiaoyu smiled and said, "What do you two usually like having for dinner?"
Yan Liuyuan said, "We dont usually eat dinner."
"How can that do? Youre both still growing," Xiaoyu said.
For some reason, Ren Xiaosu suddenly felt that Xiaoyu should have been their sister all this while. No one would say such words to them in the past.
"Big Sister Xiaoyu," Ren Xiaosu asked, "your sewing skills are great. Why dont you come over and help us when our knife wound clinic opens for business?"
"A knife wound clinic?" Xiaoyu was stunned. "Why do you suddenly want to open a clinic that specializes in knife wounds?"
"Because I have a medicinal herb formula for treating knife wounds. It can reduce inflammation and help wounds heal quicker." After Ren Xiaosu finished, he showed the wound on his hand to her. Xiaoyu took a look at it and noticed that Ren Xiaosus wound had already formed into a scab.
Xiaoyu thought for a moment and said, "But there are much fewer fights happening in town these days. In the past, more than ten people would get injured each day, but only one person gets injured every few days now."
This was indeed true. Excluding the person killed by Ren Xiaosu and the man at the clinic entrance yesterday, it seemed that there were really no fights happening recently.
The cases of night break-ins werent counted because there wouldnt be any survivors left most of the time.
Ren Xiaosu pondered it for a moment. "Why dont I go and chop some people up?" He quickly shook his head.
At the same time, Yan Liuyuan was shocked. "Bro, arent you being too ruthless? What is this? Promoting your own product?"
"No, no, we cant do such things. We mustnt get carried away by our own interests."
