Who could claim to never need emergency treatment?
However, this Ghost Doctor was rather recalcitrant in her actions. She never accepted disciples, and didn’t like observers while she was treating people. If you offended her, then she would refuse to treat you no matter the price! She also refused to join any of the current organisations with influence.
Gu Ruoyun smiled: “So the great Ghost Doctor only knows a few silly tricks. I thought that the Ghost Doctor would be someone who’s very capable and skilled. I didn’t think that it was just rumours blowing it out of proportion. Even if you were willing to accept me as a disciple, I wouldn’t want to have you as my shifu.”
The Ghost Doctor slammed her fist on the table and stood up suddenly. The scars on her face had warped, making her look sinister: “You silly little girl, you’ve got guts! You actually dare to mock my medical skills? When I made my name as the Ghost Doctor, who knows what you were doing!”
“Oh? Is that so?” Gu Ruoyun raised her brows and smiled, “Since you’re so amazing, then why can’t you treat the scars on your face?”
The scars on the Ghost Doctor’s face were her lifetime’s sorrow. Even now, just thinking about them would cause her heart to ache as before. Back then, her medical skills had been weak and all she could do was treat the poison that was infecting her wounds. However, she was unable to restore her original appearance. Even though her medical skills had improved by leaps and bounds now, it had already been so long that her wounds have aged. How would she even be able to treat them?
Thus, when Gu Ruoyun touched upon her wounds, her face turned ashen in an instant. Killing intent abruptly exuded from her, spreading around the entire hall.
Mr Liu was anxious: “Miss Gu, please don’t offend the Ghost Doctor any further. If you continue on like this, then my wife won’t be able to get treated.”
He was regretting it now, really regretting it.
Had he known earlier that Gu Ruoyun would say something like this, he wouldn’t have brought her here. With the Honorable Ghost Doctor’s temper, if you provoked her, even though she wouldn’t kill you, but she wouldn’t treat you either…
“Don’t worry, even if the Ghost Doctor refuses to treat your wife, I’ll be able to return her a clean bill of health,” Gu Ruoyun smiled, “Furthermore, I see that this Ghost Doctor isn’t all that skilled after all, otherwise she wouldn’t have left the wounds on her face untreated.”
The Ghost Doctor burst out into wild laughter. She gritted her teeth, ire and murderous intent clear in those beautiful eyes.
“What a great boast from such a little girl. It’s the first time I’ve seen such a wild little girl! I wasn’t able to treat the wounds on my face, but that’s because it’s been too long. There’s not a single person on this mainland who can treat anything that I’m unable to.”
“Is that so? So, what if I’m able to treat it?”
The young girl’s tranquil and calm voice startled the Ghost Doctor for a moment. Following that, she laughed loudly: “Little girl, you’re too arrogant. I’ve already said it, there’s no one who can treat something that I’m unable to!”
The corner of her lips carried a trace of ridicule. That mocking gaze swept over the girl’s prettily delicate face. She had never believed that there would be someone in this world whose medical skill surpassed hers, so it was even more impossible that that someone would be this girl who still stunk of her mother’s milk!
“Hmph!” The Ghost Doctor harrumphed, “If you can treat me, then I’ll tell the entire mainland that I, the Ghost Doctor, can’t match up to your skills.”
Gu Ruoyun smiled lightly, raised her index finger, and waved it in front of the Ghost Doctor. Shaking her head, she said: “No, I don’t need you to say that. You’re still number one on this mainland. However, I want you to swear your fealty to me and give your whole life to me, never leaving me and never betraying me! If you dare to swear that, then I’ll dare to prove it to you.”
The Ghost Doctor stared blankly for a moment. She had always enjoyed her freedom, and rejected all the invitations from sects. Now, this little girl wanted her to swear her fealty to her?
