In the past, his name matched with Song Qingshu, because of that, he was often ridiculed by his friends, and he also got the nickname “The king of spare tires”. At that time, he was proud and confident. He just laughed at it. He didn’t expect that it might become a reality like this. Song Qingshu, the ‘spare tire’ of that tragedy.
“Come in.” The woman in the black dress was silent for a while and lightly said.
Song Qingshu had already pretty much confirmed that this was the world of “The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber”. No one would be so bored to deliberately set up these scenes to deceive him, the key point was that he clearly remembered that he was dead at that time.
According to their conversation, this was supposed to be the Lion-slaying Assembly at Shaolin. Song Qingshu was seriously injured. Naturally, the woman in the black dress was his nominal wife Zhou Zhiruo.
Song Qingshu subconsciously pretended to remain unconscious. In the original work, the marriage of Song Qingshu and Zhou Zhiruo was in name only and fake. Zhou Zhiruo did not have much affection for Song Qingshu, and after various versions of TV dramas, Song Qingshu was deeply impressed by Zhou Zhiruo’s black heart. If she found out that the real Song Qingshu had been replaced by him, she would definitely not hesitate to send him to the underworld with a “Nine Yin White Bone Claw”.
Song Qingshu has already died once, and he didn’t want to taste that feeling again. Zhang Wuji also walked in at this time, “Song, how is Brother Song’s injury, take me to see him.”
Zhou Zhiruo didn’t look back when she saw him coming in. She just coldly said, “The bones all over his body are shattered, and his injuries are extremely serious. Most people wouldn’t survive. I don’t know if he can survive tonight.”
Song Qingshu listened to her with a bitter smile, “This little girl has no conscience. The original owner of this body is her nominal husband. Now that he is dying. She actually doesn’t care. Does she want to become a pretty widow after his death? And throw herself into Zhang Wuji’s arms again?”
Zhang Wuji said, “You know that my medical skills are not bad, and I am willing to try my best to treat him.”
His words ignited some hope in Song Qingshu’s heart. Zhang Wuji received the true inheritance of the Butterfly Valley’s Medical Immortal, and with his treatment, Song Qingshu could be saved.
Zhou Zhiruo asked: “Why do you want to save him?”
Song Qingshu was stunned after listening to her while lying on his bed, and he secretly pitied the original owner of this body, ‘It seems that you are not that close my friend, and your wife is wishing you to die sooner.’
Zhang Wuji was stunned and said, “I feel sorry for you, and I am extremely ashamed. What’s more, today you were merciful and spared my life. Brother Song was injured, and I will do my best to cure him.”
Zhou Zhiruo faintly said, “You showed mercy first, you think I don’t know that? If you can save Song Qingshu, how should I repay you?”
This situation was not right at all, why are you talking to each other like a couple? How can you ask a man about repayment in such a bitter way, what if the other party wants you to do this and that?
Song Qingshu seemed to see a green hat flashing on the head of the original owner of this body. Although Zhou Zhirou was not his wife, he was still worried.
Zhang Wuji said, “One life for another, please be merciful to my foster father.”
Zhang Wuji’s words made Song Qingshu relieved. Fortunately, this guy was emotionally indecisive. If he had a personality like Wei Xiaobao, he just needed to be shameless at this time. Just a little push, and Zhou Zhiruo was sure to give in to him.
Zhou Zhiruo pointed to the inner hall and faintly said, “He is inside.”
Zhang Wuji came to the bed, observed Song Qingshu’s injuries, and said, “Mrs. Song, I may be able to save Brother Song’s life. But, I cannot be too sure before I give it a try.”
As soon as the word “Mrs. Song” came out, Zhang Wuji became much more pleasing to Song Qingshu’s eyes, “If I am cured, I won’t care about the undercurrents between you and Zhou Zhiruo.” Song Qingshu secretly thought in his heart.
Indeed, the original Song Qingshu had a reason to hate Zhang Wuji, but he only inherited Song Qingshu’s body, there was no need to inherit the hatred in his heart at the same time. As for the unhappiness in his heart from before, it was entirely because Zhou Zhiruo was a recognized beauty in the Wulin, and Song Qingshu wasn’t entirely immune to man’s possessive psychology.
Now Song Qingshu knew that the woman had a problem with her character, he felt it easier to let go. Also, it wasn’t as if she was completely in the wrong. Things like that were inevitable in this society. Unless you were a mediocre second-generation who just wanted to eat and wait for death in his greenhouse, you will always be tainted black by the big dye tank of society.
There was no difference between good people and bad people in the world. The unfortunate thing for bad people was that they let most people see their bad side. Good people, perhaps intentionally or unintentionally, let everyone see only their good side.
Song Qingshu was the former of the tragedy. His dark side was shown to the woman by his rival, so he became a bad person; the dark side of the rival, that woman did not see at all. So even if he was killed by his rival, that woman felt that the rival was a gentleman.
While Song Qingshu was in deep contemplation, Zhang Wuji had already begun to help him connect his bones. It was so painful that he thought he would die, but currently, he still couldn’t be sure about his safety, so he only could pretend to be unconscious instead of crying out in pain.
Zhang Wuji straightened his broken bones, picked out the Black Jade Intermittent Ointment, and used Nine Yang energy to put the power of the medicine into the broken bones in Song Qingshu’s body. After a stick of incense time, he took a long breath and said to Zhou Zhiruo, “Song Brother’s life is no longer in serious danger, it’s just… it’s just…”
Zhou Zhiruo didn’t show a hint of joy on her face, and faintly said, “Just say it…”
“It’s just that Brother Song’s meridians are completely broken, and I’m afraid he won’t be able to practice martial arts again in the future.” Zhang Wuji’s words were like thunderbolts in Song Qingshu’s ears and he was dumbfounded. In the world of Wulin, the meaning of becoming a useless person was self-explanatory.
“You don’t have to blame yourself, it is not easy to save him.” Zhou Zhiruo was still indifferent. But, to Song Qingshu’s ear, it sounded very strange. As if they were husband and wife, and he was just an outsider…uh, he was indeed an outsider.
Then Zhang Wuji was worried that Zhou Zhiruo would not be able to beat Shaolin Battle Formations. He very tactfully spoke about the power of Vajra Evil Subduing Ring, hoping to work with her to break the formation.
Zhou Zhiruo categorically refused, “We used to have a marriage agreement, but my husband is dying at the moment, and I don’t want to damage your reputation. Others might say that I still have my old feelings of love for you. If I invite you to help, everyone in Wulin will talk. I don’t want to bear the reputation of being a shameless and profane woman.”
Zhang Wuji anxiously said, “We only need to have a clear conscience and just ignore whatever people of Wulin, why should we care about their opinion?”
“What if I have a guilty conscience?” Zhou Zhiruo’s rhetorical question filled the room with an ambiguous atmosphere.
Song Qing smiled bitterly and expressed his deep condolences to the original owner of this body, ‘This naked seduction is simply the rebirth of Pan Jinlian and the rebirth of Yan Poxi. Oh, poor brother Qingshu, what kind of sin did your ancestors commit? Don’t tell me that I was reborn after taking this body, now I will have to lose my “wife” in this way.”
