Chapter 15: The ribs are below

This kind of drama was seen a lot in TV dramas. Seeing the twisted expression on her face, Song Qingshu immediately understood it, but he pretended to not know, “Is sister-in-law worried about delaying for too long? I have been ill for a long time, and I also know how to fix broken bones. If my sister-in-law has no revulsion, I can help you fix the broken bone, and then we can go after the Scholar.”

“How can we do that!” Madame Hu cried out, with her pretty face suddenly turning beet red, “You and I…there is a decorum between men and women, it is not convenient…”

“Now Fei’er is in danger, but because my meridians are crippled now, I can’t rescue him by myself. So I can only rely on my sister-in-law. Humans should have a sense of courtesy and gratitude, and I can only return the help you’ve given me this way. If my help can make my sister-in-law regain her strength. Brother Hu in heaven, definitely won’t blame you.” Song Qingshu sternly said.

Madame Hu suddenly looked a little weird when she saw him being so righteous. She thought that Big Brother Hu was a hero of Wulin. Of course, he wouldn’t mind such a situation, but she, on the other hand, was a woman. It was normal for her to be very concerned.

“That Scholar just now seemed to say he wants to use Fei’er to test a medicine…” Seeing that she was still hesitating, Song Qingshu couldn’t help but add another wood to the fire.

Madame Hu’s heart jumped, and finally, her maternal instincts overcame the shyness of being a woman, and she bit her silver-white teeth, “Brother…brother-in-law, please promise me that after we are done, you will completely forget what happened today.”

“That is natural,” Song Qingshu said with a straight look, “Sister-in-law, I will cover my eyes with a cloth strip later, and I won’t see anything that I shouldn’t see.”

Madame Hu finally let out a sigh of relief and weakly nodded, “All right then.”

An imperceptible smile appeared at the corner of Song Qingshu’s mouth. He tore off a piece of cloth and blindfolded his eyes. When Madame Hu saw this, she began to shyly untie her clothes one by one.

Hearing the sound of the falling clothes in his ears, Song Qingshu tried to imagine the beautiful scenery in front of him, but it was a pity that he could not see, and he also did not dare to tear off the cloth strip on his eyes.

“Brother-in-law… it’s alright now…” Madame Hu said timidly.

“Sister-in-law, bear with me.” Song Qingshu reached out and tried to touch.

“Ah! What are you doing, the ribs are below that…” Madame Hu felt bitter, and feeling insulted tears almost flowed out from her eyes.

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” Song Qingshu hastily apologized, but in his heart, he recalled the delicate and elastic feeling of touch that came from the palm of his hand just now. He had to try this trick now that he got the chance.

Just now he proposed to cover his eyes with cloth strips. It looked gentlemanly. But in fact, Song Qingshu had already made some plans. If his eyes could not see, then even if he touched something that shouldn’t be touched, his sister-in-law could not blame him

It felt really good, and the touch from his fingers made Song Qingshu’s heart shake, but he didn’t dare to go too far, and finally successfully connected Madam Hu’s broken ribs.

After she put on her clothes, Song Qingshu tore off the cloth strips, and he saw a pretty face dripping with red in front of his eyes. Madame Hu pretended to be calm and said, “Let’s set off quickly, we must save Fei’er.”

Song Qingshu smiled contentedly, “Sister-in-law, that Scholar mentioned testing some sort of medicine just now, so it must have something to do with the King of Venoms.”

Madame Hu’s tightened her fists, and she said with a worried expression on her face, “Even I was injured in the fight just now and was at a disadvantage, that Scholar’s martial arts are indeed superior to me. Now I have to go look for the King of Venoms. I am afraid it will be too late to catch up. I won’t be able to save Feier.” The more she talked, the sadder she became, and almost burst into tears.

“Sister-in-law, I was just about to say, although I am now seriously injured and have no strength to hit a chicken, but I can teach you a martial arts technique. After learning, you should not be weaker than that Scholar.” When Song Qingshu saw her feeling sad, he felt a little distressed for no reason.

“Brother-in-law knows martial arts?” Madame Hu glanced at Song Qingshu in surprise. Seeing his fragile appearance, she always thought he was just a scholar.

“I used to know a little bit,” Song Qingshu nodded slightly, not wanting to explain more about this issue.

“Sister-in-law, what I have here is called the ‘White Boa Whip Skill’…”

Madame Hu’s face lit up, and the more she listened, the more she felt that this set of whip techniques was magical. In addition, she originally used long silk ribbons as weapons, and after comparing the two techniques, she had a glimpse of comprehending the White Boa Whip Skill after a short time.

“Brother-in-law, your whip technique is so exquisite, it must be one of the most excellent martial arts in the Wulin. Receiving this kind of gift, sister-in-law cannot thank you enough.” Madame Hu’s confidence in rescuing Hu Fei had now increased a bit, and she looked at him gratefully.

“Sister-in-law, my eldest brother and I are righteous brothers, and his son is my son. As long as we can save Fei’er, a mere martial arts technique can be regarded as nothing.” Song Qingshu righteously spoke, “If sister-in-law really wants to thank me, you can help me practice this technique together later.”

Madame Hu’s ears blushed, but she didn’t understand the deeper meaning in the second half of his sentence. She secretly said to herself, ‘Brother-in-law is good at everything, but he doesn’t pay attention to his words. What is with this “eldest brother’s son is his son”, then according to that logic won’t I…as his eldest brother’s wife will be his wife?”

Compared to aimlessly looking for the Scholar, Song Qingshu discussed with Madame Hu and decided to find the Poison King first. After all, after listening to the circumstances, it seemed that he had a strong connection with the Poison King, and they may be able to find him if they could find the Poison King.

After riding for more than ten miles, they came to a place where no grass grew. Madame Hu looked solemn, but Song Qingshu was overjoyed: “Sister-in-law, the Poison King must be nearby.”

Madame Hu nodded, jumped off the horse, and tied the horse to a tree by the road. “When we arrive at Poison King’s place, there will be danger everywhere, so why let these two horses be killed in vain?”

Song Qingshu laughed and said, “Sister-in-law not only looks as beautiful as a fairy maiden, but also has such a compassionate heart. She is simply the reincarnation of Guanyin.”

Madame Hu gave him charming a look, and said, “Brother-in-law is making fun of me again~”

Song Qingshu was accustomed to her cold appearance, and her sudden tenderness made him almost lose his soul.

Noticing Song Qingshu’s look, Madame Hu’s neck turned a little red. She took out a silk scarf, tied it on her face, covering her mouth and nose, and then gave Song Qingshu a piece, “Brother-in-law, this place is full of poisons, so cover your nose and mouth carefully.”

Song Qingshu caught the silk scarf, put it on his nose, and smelled it. An elegant fragrance made him feel relaxed and happy, but he didn’t tie it to his face like Madame Hu, but smiled slightly, “The Poison King is an old monster, and this is his home. If you can prevent his poison by just blocking your nose and mouth, then his nickname will be worthless.”

Song Qingshu didn’t cover his face, and also didn’t return the silk scarf to her. Instead, he squeezed it into his arms after smelling it. Although Madame Hu felt humiliated in her heart, it was not appropriate to retaliate now.

“Unexpectedly, you are quite knowledgeable, not as useless as you look.” A little girl who was passing by at this time stopped and stared at him.

Song Qingshu observed that this little girl was very skinny, her hair was thin and yellow, but her eyes were extremely bright. He suddenly had a clue in his heart, “We have come to visit Old Master for something, and I hope that little girl can give us some advice.”
