Chapter 45: What kind of doctor are you?
It felt as though everyone were here on a picnic.
There was a short stretch where they had to travel quite close to the riverbank. Ren Xiaosu said to the driver, "Keep as far away from the river as possible."
He did not exactly know what dangers lurked in the river, but last nights events had left an intense impression on him.
However, the driver thought otherwise. "Theres quite a distance between us and the riverbank. Besides, arent there only some fish in the river? Dont tell me that they can leap ashore and bite you on the face? Youll be fine as long as you dont go swimming."
Ren Xiaosu did not say anything else. He made the decision that if there were any danger, he would shake off these fools and make a quick escape by himself.
At this moment, the point vehicle that Ren Xiaosu was in braked hard. The driver from the private army said in apprehension, "Look!"
Ren Xiaosu turned to look and was surprised to see a large red deer.
Red deer were huge in size and were the second largest in the family of deer after the moose. They liked living in groups and mainly ruminated on grass, leaves, twigs, tree bark, and fruit for their diet while also enjoying licking mineral salts.
The red deer in front of him was probably over two meters tall. It was standing quietly on the road and looking at the convoy.
The convoy was on edge. These soldiers picked up their automatic rifles and pulled back the charging handles. Suddenly, the woods rustled as two smaller deer came out. From the looks of it, they were probably the first deers fawns.
Xu Xianchus voice crackled from the mobile transceiver. "Dont shoot it!"
The red deer did not look aggressive. It was just looking at the convoy and was probably wondering, "What the hell is this?" in its mind before getting ready to leave again. Everyone in the team heaved a sigh of relief and calmed down.
A soldier laughed and said, "Its just a herbivore. Look at how scared you guys are. There arent any large carnivores around here."
Everyone started teasing each other again. It was as though they had not gotten nervous just now.
Right at this moment, however, the red deer charged at the convoy. It dropped its head low, its huge antlers coming straight for the point vehicle!
The driver of the point vehicle swore as he stomped on the gas and turned into the woods to avoid the deer. He no longer cared if he would hit a tree or roll the vehicle.
Fortunately, the point vehicle managed to turn away in time and narrowly avoided the antlers of the huge deer as it went for them. However, the trailing vehicle was not so lucky. The antlers were so tough that they stabbed into the hood of the vehicle like the forks of a forklift truck. Then it tossed its head and flung the entire vehicle away!
Right after, the huge deer ran into the woods with its two fawns before the soldiers could get out of the other vehicles. It felt like they had escaped after pulling off a big one against the convoy!
Some of the soldiers fired frantically at the huge deer that was fleeing, but they didnt hit it. Their marksmanship was surprisingly bad.
The point vehicle that Ren Xiaosu and the others were in crashed into a tree next to the dirt road at high speed, deforming the hood. A great amount of white smoke started fuming beneath it!
Then someone shouted from the direction of the convoy, "Hurry, someone come and save him!"
Liu Bus voice rang out. "Isnt that refugee a doctor in town? Quick, get him to come over and save him!"
Ren Xiaosu got out of the vehicle and walked towards the convoy. But when he got there, he realized that the driver of the second vehicle only had a scrape on his arm. What was the big deal?
Death had always lingered around the refugees since childhood. They treated it like it was a trifling part of life. Suffering a scrape like this was nothing at all.
Ren Xiaosu frowned because he had absolutely no intention of treating the soldier. He did not want to waste his black medicine on someone like that. He was more surprised by the huge deer displaying such aggressiveness at them and wondered why.
Liu Bu shoved Ren Xiaosu and shouted, "Arent you a doctor? Hurry up and save him!"
"Uh-huh." Ren Xiaosu acknowledged him before he began chanting at the drivers wound, "Get well soon, get well soon, get well soon..."
Liu Bu was dumbfounded. "Who treats a wound like that? What kind of doctor are you?!"
Ren Xiaosu gave it some thought before venturing, "A witch doctor?"
