“Lao Hu, I’m back!”
Ji Xiaofeng jumped off Lu Ying’s moped even before it stopped and darted into the clinic, followed by Lu Ying’s startled cry, “Crap! What are you doing?”
Lu Ying hurriedly dropped the moped and ran inside: “What’s wrong with you?…” At the sight of the room full of people, Lu Ying’s voice came to an abrupt halt. When he saw Mrs. Qin, who was drinking tea with Elder Xu, Lu Ying’s expression froze. He suddenly seemed to know the purpose of this trip of Qin Zhuopu and his mother.
To beg for a son.
With his mind spinning, Lu Ying’s face looked complicated as he calmly told Ji Xiaofeng, “Brother Ji, since Doctor Hu has guests today, I’ll come back another time. Bye!”
Mrs. Qin, who had nearly spurted out a mouthful of tea after seeing Lu Ying, stood up in a daze, wanting to say something but keeping silent in the end.
“Don’t you go!” Ji Xiaofeng roared.
Too late. Lu Ying nimbly turned around and dived for the door. He was so fast because he was afraid he wouldn’t get away if he was too slow. Then with a thud he collided with Qin Zhuopu entering the door. The two of them slammed into each other hard and bounced back. Taking a few steps back, Qin Zhuopu nearly fell. At a critical moment Lu Ying, as quick as a whirlwind, reached out and pulled him back on his feet, catching him into a hug.
The assistant: “……” What’s the matter with the tall Mr. Qin suddenly looking like a baby bird?
The bodyguards who were too late to take action: “……” What kind of divine speed is this?
Mrs. Qin: “…… ” What an eyesore! What a worthless bear son!
Ji Xiaofeng: “Hahahaha!” Good job, little buddy!
So close, hugging each other, the familiar scent lingering in the nostrils, really… hasn’t changed a bit.
It was just that Qin Zhuopu’s chest was faintly aching, as if he’d hit a steel plate.
After not seeing each other for a few years, the soft old lover has changed… to become steel.
“Thank you.” Qin Zhuopu looked straight at Lu Ying, and his low voice seemed to have weight.
Lu Ying felt as if he was knocked out; his heartbeat was out of control. With his face flushed, he quickly let go and took two steps back, ready to leave. Ji Xiaofeng caught him: “Lu Ying, if you dare to leave now, don’t come next time. Elder Xu ordered all your favourite dishes. If you don’t eat them all, you know Lao Hu’s temper, right?”
“……” Lu Ying Xiao shivered. Would he still dare to take half a step now?
“Come, follow me to have tea first.” Ji Xiaofeng ignored Mrs. Qin and her party and pulled Lu Ying to the backyard.
The burning gaze behind him was so uncomfortable; Lu Ying’s entire body didn’t feel good. Why was he thinking about some lecherous pictures???
Mrs. Qin, who had had a complicated look on her face since she saw Lu Ying, could no longer remain silent. She didn’t want to deal with her son whose expression was incomprehensible and asked Elder Xu directly, “Mr. Xu, I didn’t expect to meet an old friend here that I had not seen for many years. I wonder if Lu Ying and Dr. Hu are related?”
Elder Xu smiled kindly and said, “Xiao Lu has no relation to Doctor Hu. However, he and Doctor Hu’s lover are close friends and have a good relationship. Besides, Xiao Lu’s grandfather and Doctor Hu’s family are friends, so Doctor Hu is also an elder.”
“So that’s how it is.” Mrs. Qin drew her breath. She never thought that a poor boy like Lu Ying could befriend Dr. Hu. No wonder she met his son here last time.
Next to them, Qin Zhuopu suddenly asked, “Ji Xiaofeng is Dr. Hu’s lover?”
Elder Xu was a little surprised, “Do you know him? How come Brother Ji didn’t talk to you just now, as if you’re not acquainted?”
“That was Ji Xiaofeng just now?” Mrs. Qin got excited, both shocked and confused. Thinking back carefully, who else could that be if not Ji Xiaofeng? He was a boisterous, defiant punk, and after many years he was still the same, even worse. Even his clean and beautiful face was painted like a ghost. A real eyesore. She didn’t like Lu Ying, but she was outright disgusted with Ji Xiaofeng.
Elder Xu, unaware of what the wealthy Mrs. Qin was shocked with, nodded with a smile, “That’s right, he is Doctor Hu’s lover.”
Wow, Mrs. Qin almost dropped her cup.
There was a moment of unprecedented doubt and indecisiveness in her heart. Could Dr. Hu’s qualifications be trusted with such standards?
“Zhuopu, it seems that we won’t be able to see Dr. Hu today, let’s go.” Mrs. Qin politely backed off. It was not like there was only this Qixia Town high level expert in this world.
Who could have imagined that Qin Zhuopu, who had been incredibly resistant to coming here, would be as steady as Mount Tai at the moment. “There’s no rush, let’s wait.”
“You…” Mrs. Qin didn’t know what was going on in her son’s mind. If she had known all this, she would not have urged him to come to Qixia Town to seek medical help.
Qin Zhuopu waved his hand and instructed his assistant, “Take everyone out for dinner.”
“Okay, Mr. Qin, call me anytime if you need anything.” The assistant hurriedly led the bodyguards away.
Mrs. Qin was in an even worse mood. It looked like her son didn’t want to leave alive or dead.
Elder Xu looked at the mother and son inexplicably before proposing, “How about I take Mr. Qin’s pulse first?”
Qin Zhuopu immediately stretched out his hand, “Sorry for troubling you, Elder.”
Mrs. Qin stood by in silence.
After a long time, Elder Xu let go of his hand and said, “Mr. Qin is in good health and has no major problems. He only has a slight liver deficiency and excessive fire, so he should pay attention to rest and not stay up late.”
“I’ve been on fire lately.” Qin Zhuopu nodded.
Mrs. Qin was about to ask more questions when a young man came through the door. He was tall, with short neat hair, gold-rimmed glasses on the bridge of his nose, and a pair of upturned eyes that looked like the eyes of a beast, very light brown, sharp and dangerous. His presence brought an invisible aura of oppression and the whole room seemed to be tense with awe.
“Doctor Hu.” Elder Xu rose and stepped forward. The old man bowed slightly in front of the young man and nodded, “Mrs. Qin brought her son.”
“Doctor Hu, I have specially asked Elder Shen to make a whole chicken feast for you.” Mrs. Qin herself hadn’t even noticed that she automatically entered trust mode when faced with the young Dr. Hu.
Dr. Hu’s eyes lit up and he finally looked at both mother and son with a satisfied smile, “I haven’t had the Shen family’s whole chicken feast for a long time and I’ve been missing it recently. For the sake of your sincerity, I guarantee that you will get what you want.”
“Thank you, Doctor Hu!” Mrs. Qin smiled, her earlier doubts and discontent long forgotten.
Qin Zhuopu watched in silence as his mother hurried forward and offered the food box as if offering a treasure, and sighed in his heart.
Dr. Hu was much younger and more eccentric than he had expected.
This man was as dangerous as he had ever seen.
“Mrs. Qin, would it be feasible for you to wait until I have eaten lunch before seeing your son?” Dr. Hu was in an exceptionally good mood as he smelled the spicy scent of the meal.
“Fine, fine, it should be so, we can’t let the doctor go hungry.”
Dr. Hu ordered Elder Xu, “Set the table and ask Mrs. Qin to eat with us. By the way, has my Xiaofeng returned?” As he spoke, he looked into the backyard.
“I’ll go and call him, and Brother Xiao Lu is also here today. I have also ordered many other dishes.”
“Good, let’s eat together.”
Dr. Hu was the first to get at the table, picked up his chopsticks and started eating chicken.
Mrs. Qin and Qin Zhuopu took their seats quietly, not in a hurry to move their chopsticks. When Elder Xu brought Ji Xiaofeng and Lu Ying over, Ji Xiaofeng smiled and sat next to Dr. Hu: “A whole chicken feast! I haven’t eaten it for a long time either. Lu Ying, try it. The chicken made by the Shen family tastes especially good.”
Lu Ying dared not eat Dr. Hu’s chicken and obediently reached out his chopsticks to pick up other dishes. He had finally calmed down in the backyard and was already at peace with sharing the table with the ‘people from the past’. In short, nothing in the world was as important as Zaizai.
He was burying his head in his food when suddenly a large chicken leg fell into his bowl. Lu Ying hastily looked up: “Thanks… thank you… you… “
Qin Zhuopu used his chopsticks to pick up a chicken wing and put it into Lu Ying’s large bowl as well, “Try it.”
“Thank you…” Lu Ying held up the bowl, trying to hide his face. He was afraid he wouldn’t be able to hold back a silly smile.
“……” Qin Zhuopu surveyed the huge bowl. Well, at a glance, this basin-size bowl was specially prepared for Lu Ying with the knowledge of his food consumption.
At this moment, Elder Xu also picked up the chicken and put it into Lu Ying’s bowl: “Brother Xiao Lu, don’t be polite, eat more if you have a good appetite. I bought many dishes for you today. Seeing you eat is more enjoyable than anything else. Come, come, eat more.”
“You’re too polite, Elder Xu, enough is enough… Thank you!”
Swish swish swish, Lu Ying’s basin-like bowl of white rice was quickly filled with dishes from Elder Xu. Lu Ying couldn’t resist, so he had to eat hard.
Qin Zhuopu, who was holding up his chopsticks: “……”
Ji Xiaofeng huddled beside Dr. Hu, secretly shaking with laughter.
Mrs. Qin… had no appetite.jpg.
“Have you come to beg for a son?” Halfway through eating chicken, Dr. Hu opened his mouth to ask Mrs. Qin and her son, his serious gaze falling on Qin Zhuopu’s face.
Qin Zhuopu instantly glanced at Lu Ying. He felt inexplicably humiliated in front of his old lover. It was really unexpected to meet Lu Ying today.
If he didn’t know the details, he would really think that he, Qin Zhuopu, was suffering from an unspeakable disease called ‘infertility’. He might even think that even though the size was good, it didn’t work properly.
“Yes! I’m begging for a son for my son!” Mrs. Qin confirmed.
Worthy of being a mother, screwing up her son like this.
Qin Zhuopu sighed.
“Hehe…” Ji Xiaofeng smothered a chuckle.
Qin Zhuopu’s face was expressionless as he put down his chopsticks.
When he looked again, Lu Ying was still eating as if he hadn’t heard anything happening around him.
Really, he hadn’t changed at all. He still loved to eat and was good at it.
Even a heavenly emperor would not be able to attract Lu Ying’s attention when he was eating.
Dr. Hu smiled and said lazily, “You’ve taken good care of yourself and are in good health.”
Qin Zhuopu thanked him politely. This expert was capable, diagnosing him across the table of dishes.
Mrs. Qin was excited. “Really? Great! In fact, after many examinations in the hospital, the doctor also said that he was in good health. It’s just that there is a difficulty with a child… please take another look, Doctor Hu.”
Dr. Hu glanced at his lover who was gloating next to him, and then at Lu Ying who was burying his head in his food.
“Why do you have to come such a long way to beg for a son?” Dr. Hu shook his head.
Mrs. Qin was sad: “There’s really nothing else I can do.”
Qin Zhuopu stared warily, feeling that there was something in Dr. Hu’s words.
“I see your son’s face, his life will be rich and prosperous, with many children and grandchildren.”
“Ah!” Mrs. Qin half-stood up in joy, “Is that true?”
Qin Zhuopu’s face was black.
“But when will my son have a child? He’s not young anymore.” Mrs. Qin pressed on, not caring about face or reputation. She just wanted an answer.
Doctor Hu chuckled, “Mrs. Qin’s question is funny.”
“Funny?” Mrs. Qin was confused.
“Hahaha…” Dr. Hu laughed out loud.
Ji Xiaofeng secretly pinched his thigh, warning him to shut up. Lu Ying finally abandoned his bowl and looked up at Dr. Hu in a daze, his gaze flustered.
“Your son is clearly about to go to primary school.”
Lu Ying: I heard that you have an incurable disease?
Mr. Qin: Yes, it can’t be cured in this life.
Lu Ying: Don’t be afraid, don’t ever give up!
Mr. Qin: It doesn’t matter.
Lu Ying: What is the disease? Don’t give up on yourself!
Mr. Qin: Infertility.
Lu Ying: ……

I’m surprised he waited until half the meal to say it, this one that dies of impatience to drive him away from his love 🤭🤭
Oh, I was so angry with Dr. Hu for saying it like that! But… the guy is like that. It’s beneath him to care what the result of his words will be 😤😤
Among zodiacs Dr. Hu should be the tiger, Ji Xiaofeng should be the dog because he seems to be the second last to leave the mountains. Not sure about the others.
I didnt expect Lu Ying to tell the truth so cleanly🤣. Ofc others might not believe it.
I mean Dr. Hu, not Lu Ying
I was so angry with him then but later… hehe 🤗🤗
Haha, I didn’t guess about Dr. Hu for a long time but I didn’t guess so many things when I was reading it first, like I was blind 😅😅 As for Brother Ji, there’s a hint when Liu Dichuan says “Those who don’t know might think you’re a raven” 😂😂
I really believe the synopsis and thought it was Lu Ying who revealed about the kid.
He’s going to primary school.’
And a certain unmarried dad wonder how that’s supposed to happen.
The summary is horribly misleading 🙂 Even though most of the phrases said it it will really be said – but you have no idea how different they will sound in another context 🙂 🙂
Hahaha! Thank you for the chapter ❤️
