Chapter 487: Old Man’s Gone (Part Two)
Minister Ye was rendered speechless by his dad, but he couldn’t help it, that was just his dad’s temper. He bitterly smiled as he stood up and asked everyone to go out to the yard beside the four other elders. Then, at the front yard, he told everyone the old man’s request, and those guys obviously didn’t dare to be dissatisfied by the request. They all left out of the front gate.
After coming back, he curiously asked Xu Cheng in a low voice, “What did you say to the old man? Look at how excited he became.”
“Not much, I just said that since he’s gonna die anyway, he might as well let me give it a try to cure him. The result obviously can’t be much worse than now.”
Minister Ye: “You studied medicine before?”
Xu Cheng: “I’ve been learning it since I went away this time.”
Minister Ye: “Why did you go into medicine all of a sudden? You suddenly found your conscience and want to save lives now?”
Xu Cheng awkwardly coughed. “No, it’s to understand human biology to kill better in the future.”
Minister Ye: “…”
“Uncle Ye, can you invite these three doctors out too? I don’t want them to step up and judge my methods. The old man doesn’t have much time left, so I don’t have time to argue with the three doctors.”
Minister Ye: “That might not be possible. They are also responsible for assessing for a death report after the old man passes away.”
“Forget it, I will do it myself then.” Then, Xu Cheng went to the bedside and said to those three doctors, “Uncles(TL note: a polite way to address people one generation older than you in China), do you feel that the old man can still be rescued?”
The three of them exchanged a look and shook their heads. “We’ve tried our best, it was already not easy to help him extend his days to now. But, as long as Elder Ye isn’t dead, we won’t give up, and we will do everything possible to keep him breathing.”
“Then can you let me try?” Xu Cheng said.
“What did you say?” The three of them were shocked. “Who do you think Elder Ye is? A random cat or dog on the streets? Let you try? What formality is that?”
“I’m no different than a cat or dog on the streets now,” at this time, the old man faintly said.
Xu Cheng glanced at him and said, “No, you are even worse than a cat or dog. You are almost as dead as a log right now.”
The old man looked at those three doctors and said, “Let him try.”
The three doctors were all taken aback. “How can this be done? Elder Ye, you can’t joke with your own life!”
“I’m not joking.” The old man bitterly smiled, and he said to Xu Cheng, “Come closer, let me talk to you.”
Xu Cheng sat down, leaned over to the old man’s mouth and the old man softly said, “Since I will die in your hands, take this guilt and in the future, when necessary, I hope you can take care of Little Xiu or the future generation of the Ye Family.”
In fact, he didn’t expect Xu Cheng to save him at all. He knew he was going to die, so he thought it would be fine to hand over his body to Xu Cheng to practice. Just like he said, in the future when the Ye Family doesn’t have a strong background anymore, Xu Cheng could still lend a hand and help out.
Xu Cheng obviously guessed what the old man had planned. He bitterly smiled. “Yeah.”
In this case, three of the most authoritative doctors in the nation had tried their best, the old man was obviously not holding onto any more hope.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Besides the accumulated illness in his body, Elder Ye was also at the end of his lifecycle. It was about time. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng directly took out a box from his jacket’s pocket, and the box had been vacuumed sealed to ensure that the syringes weren’t contaminated. He took out a syringe and was about to inject it into the old man’s vein, but at that moment, Elder Ye’s electrocardiogram flatlined, and the “beeee” sound sounded.
Everyone was dead silent.
Xu Cheng sat by the bedside, not knowing whether he should continue with the needle in his hand.
Ye Xiu grabbed onto his wrist and sighed, “Big Brother Cheng, let’s respect the deceased; leave him some dignity.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
