444 The Benevolence of Doctors
Jiang Chen didn't stay in the air for even one more second after killing Cao Lin.
When the others had come to themselves, he had disappeared. They kept exclaiming, admiring him even more.
In fact, Jiang Chen had gone back to the pavilion.
Tang Juan, standing in the doorway, was still in shock. Something occurred to her when she saw him coming. She hurried to extend her arms to block the door.
"Apprentice Brother Jiang Chen, you can't go in right now."
Jiang Chen was dumbstruck, but then he realized what was going on after hearing the groaning in the room.
"There's no other way. What she took wasn't a simple pill. She has to get treatment," said Jiang Chen.
Tang Juan didn't entirely believe him right away. She thought once the effects of the pill were gone, everything would be okay.
"Otherwise, why do you think I risked my life?" Jiang Chen explained the motives for his fight, and Tang Juan was persuaded.
He went into the room and saw the most erotic scene he had seen in his whole life.
Yin Shuang saw him and started to crawl towards him. She looked as if she was completely lost.
Jiang Chen put his coat on Yin Shuang and took her to the mattress. He pressed one hand on her back and held needles with the other.
He's really treating her.
Tang Juan patted her chest. She had thought Jiang Chen was going to do the same thing Cao Lin had intended to do.
She walked into the room, trying to help, but Yin Shuang's situation was merely a small problem for Jiang Chen. She would be fine as long as the heat in her body was taken care of.
Cao Lin claimed she would become an idiot, but actually, it was the effect of the high temperature, due to which her brain would be damaged.
Soon, the coat covering Yin Shuang was soaked with sweat. Jiang Chen had to take it off as he started to put the needles in her body.
He's a decent man.
Tang Juan noticed Jiang Chen was as calm as ever. It wasn't that he was pretending he wasn't embarrassed, but he was focused on the treatment.
That was the benevolence of doctors!
If Jiang Chen were thinking of anything else, he would be too ashamed to treat her.
"She's fine now. You can stay to see to her needs. I'll handle things outside."
After a long while, Jiang Chen removed the silver needles.
Yin Shuang had calmed down, her body temperature lower. She was lying on her back on the mattress.
"Okay." Tang Juang told him not to worry about them, then she squatted down beside the mattress.
Jiang Chen felt a sharp pain in his back when he walked out of the room.
The armor of thunder had warded off one attack from Cao Lin, but he had still been hurt. That spear attack of Cao Lin's had been incredibly powerful.
Jiang Chen sensed something. He felt his teeth and saw his fingers smeared with blood.
He spit and saw blood in his saliva, too.
He hurt my viscera.
He had killed Cao Lin with only two movements. Of course he had to pay the price for it. Otherwise, the top fifty of the Dragon Rise List wouldn't be worthy of their names.
He took a panacea to make do, then he went to the garden.
He frowned at a couple of corpses that he saw. He flew to the alley that led to the backdoor and saw three men escaping.
Seeing Cao Lin dead, they knew if they didn't flee, they would die, too. However, they were too injured to fly.
They weren't surprised at all that Jiang Chen had caught up with them. They looked reluctant and resentful.
"Are you going to kill us all?" the guy called Meng Lin said.
"It would be an insult to my sword to kill you, but if I don't kill you, justice won't be done."
As he spoke, he pointed the sword at the three men.
Without even a scream, the three fell onto the ground.
After all this was done, Jiang Chen found a place to heal his injury.
Not knowing how long had passed, Yin Shuang woke up in the pavilion.
She burst out crying when she recognized Tang Juan and saw her clothes all over the ground.
It was the first time Tang Juan had seen her like this. She didn't know what to do, nor did she understand why she was acting like this.
About ten seconds later, not crying anymore, Yin Shuang asked in a cold voice, "Where is he?!"
"Yin Shuang, do you mean Cao Lin?"
Yin Shuang's expression looked as if she was asking who else it could be but him.
"Don't you remember what happened in the end?"
Yin Shuang frowned. She tried very hard to remember, then said unconfidently, "I think I saw Jiang Chen… but I'm not sure…"
She couldn't believe it, since Jiang Chen wasn't powerful enough to deal with Cao Lin. If he really had come to her rescue, he would definitely have died.
"That's right. You did see him," said Tang Juan.
"What?" Yin Shuang was shocked. Not until then did she notice a wall of the room was broken.
"Jiang Chen defeated the whole group of them," Tang Juan said excitedly.
"Cao Lin is ranked forty-third!" Yin Shuang said without thinking. She couldn't believe it.
Jiang Chen had been ranked below ninetieth when they had entered the secret treasure, although he would have been ranked higher if Liu Shayang hadn't held back his state.
But compared to forty-third place, that was a long way to go.
However, Tang Juan couldn't have lied to her. Finding herself still a virgin, she recalled she had taken off her clothes by herself.
"Tell me everything," Yin Shuang urged.
So Tang Juan told her how she had found Jiang Chen.
Biting her lip, Yin Shuang smiled slightly when she heard Jiang Chen had taken off his mask as soon as he knew it was about her.
Next was the fight. Fortunately, Jiang Chen had arrived in time. If he hadn't, the consequences would have been unimaginable.
Yin Shuang was surprised to hear that Jiang Chen had killed Cao Lin with only two movements. She also felt worried when she heard he had received a powerful attack from Cao Lin.
She also learned Jiang Chen was fearless of fire, thanks to which he had managed to exert his movements from within Cao Lin's fire dragon.
He's a disciple of the Gaos. He has the blood of phoenix. Of course he doesn't fear fire, but to reach such a state, he must have very pure phoenix blood, Yin Shuang thought to herself.
Then Tang Juan started to hesitate. She didn't dare go on telling Yin Shuang what had happened next.
Yin Shuang realized something. She flushed, but still asked Tang Juan to continue.
As expected, the next part was Jiang Chen's treatment of her when she had been stark naked.
Even Yin Shuang's neck reddened. Feeling very uncomfortable, she couldn't help but breathe heavily.
Fiddling with her hair, she asked, "What was he like when he was treating me?"
Her voice was so low that Tang Juan could hardly hear her, and she was so shy that it was difficult to connect her with the mature and graceful woman she usually was.
Tang Juan understood what was on her mind, but she didn't try to talk about it. She just told Yin Shuang how Jiang Chen had treated her.
She said it with an admiring tone. She said she had never seen a doctor as focused as Jiang Chen.
Somehow Yin Shuang felt a little bit disappointed, although what Jiang Chen had done made her feel safe.
"Where is he now?" Yin Shuang wanted to see him. She put on her clothes and walked out of the door.
Seeing the blood on the ground, she recalled the attack he had received from Cao Lin. She got anxious and went to the garden to look for him.
She had never been so anxious in her whole life.
She recollected the panic that she could lose her family anytime that she had experienced when her grandma had been sick. Back then, she had only been a little girl.
"Jiang Chen, where are you?!" Yin Shuang shouted hoarsely, not caring about her elegance at all.
She hadn't recovered yet. After shouting, she bent down to gasp for air.
"Miss Yin Shuang, take care. Seeing you like this, my heart will be broken," Jiang Chen's gentle voice came from ahead of her.
She looked up and saw him standing there in the shadows, beaming and showing his pretty white teeth.
Yin Shuang threw herself into his arms immediately, holding him tightly.
