Chapter 164 — Ye Fan’s Medical Skills
When Bai Yunxi returned to Bai’s house, he found several people from the Shennong clan gathered in the living room. Bai Yunxi couldn’t help but feel guilty, secretly guessing whether the other party knew something, so they came to the door.
“Yunxi, you’re back,” Bai Yunjin greeted happily.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Brother, why are there so many people in the family?”
“It’s Master Xu Yuanqing’s friend who came out for a trip to get help from Xu Yuanqing,” Bai Yunjin said.
Bai Yunxi breathed a sigh of relief and secretly said: So they are not here to look for trouble, they are here to be guests.
Hearing what Daoist Master Xu said, “Yunxi, these people are valuable guests, these people are all medical saints, their medical skills are very powerful,” Bai Yunjin said.
Bai Yunxi smiled reluctantly, and secretly said: Ye Fan has just robbed the wind and thunder bamboo from these distinguished guests, if these guys found out, they would be mad.
“Third Young Master Bai, you’re here!” Xu Yuanqing couldn’t help but feel a little happy when he saw Bai Yunxi.
Several Shennong clansmen glanced at Bai Yunxi, and seeing that Bai Yunxi was just an “ordinary person”, they all withdrew their gazes.
Xu Yuanqing looked at the indifferent reactions of several Shennong clansmen, and couldn’t help but feel a little embarrassed looking at Bai Yunxi’s expression.
Bai Yunxi smiled and didn’t take it seriously.
A few Shennong people frowned deeply, and seemed to be troubled by something. The language they spoke had a bit of an ancient flavor, which made it difficult for people to understand.
“Master Xu, what are these Shennong people doing?” Bai Yunxi pulled Xu Yuanqing aside and asked.
Xu Yuanqing smiled bitterly and said, “They came to me for help, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to help them.”
“Came to you to help heal someone?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Xu Yuanqing shook his head and said, “No, help collect spirit grasses, but many are extinct spirit grasses.”
Bai Yunxi smiled bitterly, “It’s all extinct, how can you find it?”
“Actually, they don’t necessarily need the spirit grass. They are looking for the spirit grass to treat a person. If the disease is cured, the spirit grass is not needed. Maybe Young Master Ye can help with this,” Xu Yuanqing said.
Bai Yunxi said with some confusion, “Ye Fan? He can cure ordinary ailments, but the Shennong clan itself is not lacking in medical dao experts. They can’t cure the disease, Ye Fan also does not necessarily have the method. What is the problem?”
“Shennong’s blood has been inherited for many years, and the bloodline is getting thinner and thinner. The people of the Shennong clan want to imitate Shennong and taste a hundred herbs. As a result, they were directly poisoned because they couldn’t digest the medicinal power of the herbs,” Xu Yuanqing said.
Bai Yunxi said incomprehensibly, “Shennong tasted a hundred herbs back then because he didn’t know if the herbs were poisonous or not! Why would Shennong’s descendants do that?”
“Legend has it that after Shennong tasted all kinds of herbs, his body naturally turned into a melting pot, which could naturally refine the medicinal power of the spirit medicine. The medicinal power of the spirit medicine was also accidentally integrated into the blood, causing Shennong’s body to mutate. This kind of mutation made Shennong become infinitely powerful, and his lifespan was longer than that of ordinary people, and this characteristic was also passed on to his descendants.”
“However, with the changes of the times, this characteristic has gradually disappeared. Now the descendants of Shennong have become like ordinary people. These Shennong descendants, in order to follow the example of Shennong, followed his footsteps and began to taste a hundred herbs…”
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “It doesn’t seem to work.”
The taotie ghost said that the Shennong clan could belong to the descendants of gods in Acquired stage.
“The times have changed for so many years, many of the spirit grasses of the past have become extinct, and many spirit medicines now use pesticides!” Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said.
Xu Yuanqing nodded and said, “I think so too, but it is not so easy for Shennong’s descendants to give up the glory of the past and leave everyone alone.”
“Then how can Ye Fan help?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“That Shennong descendant has all kinds of toxins accumulated in his body, and all kinds of elixir and medicinal properties conflict with each other. I can’t do anything about it. However, Young Master Ye may have a way,” Xu Yuanqing said.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Yes, maybe he will have a way.”
Ye Fan said that although he was unable to practice in his previous life, he had read a lot of books, and knew everything about medical alchemy, formation, and talisman.
Xu Yuanqing smiled awkwardly, “However, Ye Fan shouldn’t need to take action.”
Bai Yunxi looked at Xu Yuanqing’s expression in confusion, then smiled clearly, and said, “Because the Shennong family can’t trust Ye Fan’s ability?”
Xu Yuanqing sneered and said, “Yes, the people of the Shennong family are very proud of their medical skills. They can’t trust ordinary doctors outside.” As soon as the people of the Shennong family came, he recommended Ye Fan to them. However, the Shennong family asked Ye Fan’s age, and then they didn’t say anything, obviously they didn’t take Ye Fan seriously.
“It’s good that they can’t trust him, Ye Fan’s temperament is the most likely to offend people. His recent worth has risen to one billion, and he may not be happy if he is not invited for one billion.” Talking about Ye Fan, Bai Yunxi’s face flashed with a few moments of helplessness and indulgence.
Xu Yuanqing: “…” People from Shennong’s family may not trust Ye Fan, and Ye Fan may not be willing to help the Shennong family, so it’s better for him to shut up.
“It’s almost New Year’s, and he’s been planning to return home recently,” Bai Yunxi said.
Xu Yuanqing: “Homecoming?”
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Yes.”

Ye Fan’s villa.
“Is it here?” Jiang Linfeng asked suspiciously.
Jiang Meng nodded and said, “Yes.”
“This house has a lot of yin energy!” Jiang Linfeng said.
“I heard that Ye Fan bought it because he saw that this house is a haunted house, it is heavy in yin and cheap,” Jiang Meng said.
“I don’t know what’s so great about this guy that makes Daoist Master Xu praise him so much,” Jiang Linfeng said.
“Yeah! I heard that this guy is only in his early twenties.” So young, what does he know? The younger generation of the Shennong clan are kept by their elders until they are over twenty-five years old, before they are allowed to walk outside.
Jiang Linfeng and Jiang Meng walked into the house and saw Ye Fan sitting in front of the TV, watching TV with a pile of snacks spread out on the table.
On the TV, SpongeBob is playing.
Jiang Linfeng looked at this scene in the room and couldn’t help but have black lines all over his head.
“It’s you?” Jiang Meng asked in surprise.
Ye Fan blinked at Jiang Meng and said, “It’s me! Is there something wrong?”
“I heard that your medical skills are very good,” Jiang Meng asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, I am very skilled in medicine.”
Jiang Meng looked at Ye Fan’s proud face, and her heart suddenly felt a little strange. The people of their Shennong family did not dare to say that they were good at medicine, but this guy, Ye Fan, was not humble at all.
Jiang Linfeng looked at Ye Fan and said, “Actually, I’ve always felt a pain in my heart recently. I heard that Young Master Ye is a genius doctor who can cure diseases. I wonder if Young Master Ye can help me take a look.”
Ye Fan stared at Jiang Linfeng for a few moments, shook his head, and said, “I can’t cure your disease!”
“Young Master Ye, you haven’t checked the pulse for me, how do you know it can’t be cured?” Jiang Linfeng said with a frown.
“You have a strong medicinal fragrance, you are a medical expert yourself. If you can’t do it yourself, I naturally can’t do it,” Ye Fan said.
Jiang Linfeng smiled and said, “Is that so?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes!”
Jiang Linfeng and Jiang Meng came to the villa to sit for a while and then left.
As soon as the two left, George became a lot more active.
“Young Master Ye, there are still problems you can’t cure? I remember my brother was poisoned before, and you cured him all at once,” George said, puzzled.
Ye Fan opened a bag of potato chips, grabbed a handful and put it in his mouth, saying, “I can cure most of the problems in this world, but there are some problems that I can’t cure.”
George asked curiously, “Is it like the problem with that person just now? Young Master Ye, what’s wrong with that person just now?”
Ye Fan grinned, smiled, and said, “He’s not sick.”
George said puzzledly: “That’s not right! He said he…”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Well, he said he was sick when he’s obviously not sick, but said he was sick, this guy is mostly sick in the head. Sick in the head, that is a terminal disease, my medicines are not effective ah!”
The taotie ghost transformed into a shape on the table and laughed.
This is not the first time George has seen the taotie ghost, and he is not surprised to see it.
“What are you laughing at?” Ye Fan asked, a bit displeased.
“Sick in the head, you’re sick in the head, is it not obvious? People want to ask you to help, but then, they do not trust your ability, so they pretend to be sick to test you.” The taotie ghost licked its claws and gloated.
Ye Fan slapped the taotie ghost away with a slap, and said proudly: “This young master has the talent to go through the sky and the earth, the strategy of setting the country and the state. A genius like me, there is still a need to test?”
The taotie ghost looked at Ye Fan and laughed.
The taotie ghost raised his claws, pointed at Ye Fan, and turned to George, saying, “I see, when the brain is sick, there is really no cure.”
Ye Fan looked at the gluttonous ghosts, full of unhappiness, and said, “If you talk nonsense again, I will scatter your soul.”
Taotie ghost: “…”
Bai Yunxi walked in from outside the door, and Ye Fan immediately restrained his hideous expression and put on an amiable face.
“Yunxi, you are here!” Ye Fan stood up abruptly.
Bai Yunxi glanced at George and said, “Mr. George is here too!”
George scratched his head and said, “Young Master Bai is back, I’m leaving.”
Seeing that Bai Yunxi and Ye Fan had something to talk about, George left very wisely.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan and asked, “Have people from the Shennong family come?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, there was a person who was not sick and pretended to be sick and came to see me, so I sent him away.”
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Okay.” Judging from the appearance of the Shennong family, they probably didn’t have much hope for Ye Fan. It was just right, Ye Fan didn’t have to go to this muddy water anyway.
“That woman didn’t see anything, did she?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “I don’t think so.”
Bai Yunxi narrowed her eyes and said, “She shouldn’t have seen you at the time! However, I feel like she noticed something.”
“Maybe this is a woman’s intuition, it’s a very troublesome thing!”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Jiang Meng couldn’t help turning back and looking at Ye Fan’s house again.
Jiang Linfeng looked at Jiang Meng’s expression and said inexplicably, “Xiao Meng, what’s wrong?”
Jiang Meng shook his head and said, “It’s nothing, just in the villa just now, I felt something staring at me.”
“What something?” Jiang Linfeng asked.
Jiang Meng frowned and said, “It’s like an evil spirit.”
“It’s a haunted house, so it’s not surprising that there are evil spirits,” Jiang Linfeng said.
“I didn’t expect that that guy was Ye Fan. His figure was a bit like the person who attacked me that day,” Jiang Meng said.
“Then did you feel the breath of the wind and thunder bamboo in him?” Jiang Linfeng asked.
Jiang Meng shook her head and said, “No.”
Jiang Linfeng frowned and said, “It shouldn’t be so coincidental. Besides, the breath of the wind and thunder bamboo should be difficult to isolate.”
“Cousin, what do you think about Ye Fan’s medical skills?”
Jiang Linfeng shook his head and said with a wry smile, “I can’t tell, maybe there is something special about him, but he is too young.”
Jiang Meng nodded and said, “Yes! Medical skills need a lot of practice. Ye Fan is still so young. Even if he has some skills, he should not be very powerful.”
