Chapter 886 - The Congenital Defect



Many people realized this. If they wanted to take the exam to become a Level Six Alchemist, they had to at least be at the Voiding Realm stage. Qin Haodong was the only one in their class who had reached this level of cultivation.

Therefore, everyone's attention was on Qin Haodong. Could it be that the Level Six Alchemist Fang Qiong'er was talking about was really him?

With a hint of curiosity, Mei Lin asked, "Fang Qiong'er, which student in our class does your medal belong to?"

"Of course it is for my brother. He is the only one in the entire Tortoise Academy who is so outstanding."

After saying that, Fang Qiong'er walked slowly to Qin Haodong. She straightened his clothes first. Then, she took out a shiny medal and pinned it on his chest.

She was gentle and serious, like a wife serving her husband.

Everyone was stunned. Not only were they shocked that Qin Haodong had won the Level Six Alchemist medal as soon as he entered the academy, but they were also shocked by Fang Qiong'er's actions.

For so many years in the academy, the word "cold" was the most appropriate term used to describe her. This goddess had always been indifferent to men but what she did today surprised everyone.

"Brother, come to the Alchemist Association if you have time."

After everything was done, Fang Qiong'er gave Qin Haodong a sweet smile and then walked away from the classroom.

At this moment, the big classroom was silent but everyone was shocked. This young man hadn't come to class for two days. As soon as he appeared, everything became increasingly interesting.

The Little Witch said proudly, "You see that. My little brother is the best.

"And you, an ugly fellow. Didn't you want to compete with my little brother on alchemy? Do you still want to compete now?"

Zuo Tianxiong's face was full of defeat. There was definitely no need to do that. It would be futile. His opponent was a Level Six Alchemist, while he was a Level Three Alchemist. He was nothing by comparison.

Although on the surface, it seemed that there was a gap of three levels between them, it was more and more difficult for alchemists to reach the next level. Not only did the cultivation have to be in place, but the alchemy skills should also be excellent. Therefore, every step was increasingly difficult. It was estimated that he would never be able to reach Level Six in his life.

He was more depressed because the Little Witch called him 'an ugly fellow'!

Was he ugly? He just wasn't as handsome as that gigolo.

If there'd been no comparison, no harm would come out of it. Previously, he was full of pride because of his identity as an alchemist but now his pride had been crushed by Qin Haodong.

Left with no choice, he lowered his head and ducked into the crowd, not daring to say another word.

Seeing him like this, the Little Witch was even more proud, as if she had won. She held her head high and preened as she scanned the students around her like a proud queen.

"Anyone else who is not convinced by my little brother, step forward."

"I'm not convinced. I want to compete with him in medical skills."

As he spoke, a handsome young man stood forward and gazed at the Little Witch, his eyes gleaming brightly.

His name was Yun Xiang. Most of the students in the class regarded Zhao Xingyue as their goddess. However, he was the exception. He liked the Little Witch, Luo Hongying.

The Little Witch glanced at him disdainfully and said, "You? What's the point of competing in medical skills?"

Yun Xiang said, "Although we cultivators rarely get sick, it's common for us to get injured and we cannot do without doctors."

"So I think doctors are the most helpful to our class and the Class President of our class must have excellent medical skills."

The Little Witch said, "Even if we compete in medical skills, you are no match for my little brother."

This girl now had a blind admiration for Qin Haodong. She felt that he was omnipotent.

Yun Xiang said, "Luo Hongying, how about we make a bet?"


The Little Witch was certainly not convinced. With arms akimbo. she said, "Fine! Let's make a bet. My little brother is not afraid of you at all. What do you want to bet on?"

Yun Xiang said, "I'll compete with Qin Haodong in medical skills. If I win, how about you become my girlfriend?"

"I… I can't do that. I can't be your girlfriend. You're too ugly. You're not even half as handsome as my little brother."

As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Yun Xiang was actually a standard handsome man but he could not be compared with Qin Haodong in Luo Hongying's eyes.

Seeing that his sweetheart had fallen in love with another man, he was naturally upset. He gritted his teeth and said, "Are you afraid? If you are, just let him throw in the towel."

"Why am I afraid? What's there to be afraid of?"

Yun Xiang only used a bit of provocation. The Little Witch jumped up. She didn't allow anyone to look down on her little brother.

"He will compete with you in medical skills. If my little brother loses, I'll be your girlfriend. Dream on then. My little brother won't lose."

Qin Haodong, who was standing aside, was speechless. He had not uttered a word but this girl had somehow gotten him involved. What was going on?

Yun Xiang had studied medicine for many years and thought that his medical skills were unparalleled among the students. After the Little Witch agreed, he immediately said with a smile, "Luo Hongying, this is what you said. Don't regret it."

"I, the Little Witch, have always kept my promise. Why would I regret it? But what's the bet?"

"Well…" Yun Xiang said, "I have no money. How about this? If I lose, I will sell myself to you as a servant. You can ask me to do anything."

The Little Witch sneered and said, "You are not worth much at all but it's okay; I will not suffer a loss."

She turned around and said, "Little brother, it's your turn. Defeat him and let him be my servant."

Seeing that Qin Haodong was silent, Yun Xiang said, "Qin Haodong, are you afraid? Do you dare to compete with me in medical skills?"

The Little Witch cried, "Little brother, hurry up and show him what you can do."

Qin Haodong patted her head helplessly and said to Yun Xiang, "You are not qualified to compete with me in medical skills."

"Am I not qualified? I think you are afraid." Yun Xiang sneered, "I have been taught medical skills by an extraordinary person since I was five years old. I have reached the stage of Small Completion now. I dare not say anything else but my medical skills are more than enough to defeat yours."

"Really?" Qin Haodong smiled perfectly and said, "Then let me test you. What are the Eight Extraordinary Meridians?"

Yun Xiang's face changed. "Qin Haodong, are you insulting me? Any doctor knows such a basic question."

Qin Haodong said calmly, "Then tell me."

"Then I'll tell you. Let's see what new tricks you can play," Yun Xiang said, "the Eight Extraordinary Meridians refers to the Ren Meridian, Du Meridian, Chong Meridian, Dai Meridian, Yinwei Meridian, Yangwei Meridian, Yinqiao Meridian, and Yangqiao Meridian.

"Compared with the 12 standard meridians of the human body, these meridians are very unique, so they are called extraordinary meridians. The Eight Extraordinary Meridians are the foundation of warriors."

Qin Haodong sneered, "You know it's the foundation of a warrior, but you only have half a Yinwei Meridian and you can't even cure your own disease. How dare you stand here and compete with me in medical skills? Isn't that a joke?"

Yun Xiang immediately turned pale with fright. "How could you tell?!"

Qin Haodong said, "As a doctor, how can I not see such an obvious disease?

"Your disease should be due to congenital defects. It is hereditary, which has been passed down from generation to generation in your family. At the beginning of warriors' cultivating, this disease has no disadvantages. On the contrary, it will speed up your cultivation.

"However, as the cultivation increased, the drawbacks of lacking half a Yinwei Meridian will start to show. You had just reached the early stage of the Apotheosis Realm and you would feel pain in your chest from time to time."

"When you reach the stage of the Voiding Realm, especially the middle stage of the Voiding Realm, you'll begin to cough up large mouthfuls of blood. It is extremely difficult to survive, not to mention improving your cultivation again"


Hearing his words, everyone else was shocked. It was the first time that they had heard of such a thing, congenitally lacking half a Yinwei Meridian.

"Really? He wasn't lying? He didn't even feel his pulse. How could he make it so clear?"

"In addition to martial arts cultivation and alchemy, are his medical skills so excellent? That's impossible. How can a person have so much energy?"

"I think he can't compare with Yun Xiang in medical skills, so he made up such a lie…"

The people around were talking about it, but Yun Xiang was in a daze. After a while, he suddenly woke up and knelt down in front of Qin Haodong. "Doctor Qin, please forgive my ignorance. Please, please save my sister!"

What was going on? Was Yun Xiang crazy? Didn't he want to compete with that guy in medical skills? Why did he suddenly kneel down?

Everyone was confused, including Teacher Mei Lin. She originally wanted to see the competition between these students but she didn't expect such a result.

Qin Haodong didn't even make any move. He only used a few words to make his opponent kneel down and admit defeat.

The Little Witch cried, "Yun Xiang, don't you want to compete with my little brother in medical skills? Why are you kneeling? Do you want to compete?"

Yun Xiang cried, "No, no, my medical skills are not as good as that of Doctor Qin at all. I'm willing to be your servant but please save my sister first."

Qin Haodong had almost figured out what had happened. He said, "If I'm not mistaken, your sister has reached the middle stage of the Voiding Realm, hasn't she?"

"Doctor Qin, you are really amazing. You guessed right. My sister has been acclaimed as a martial arts genius since she was a child. Her cultivation improved very fast. She reached the middle stage of the Voiding Realm a year ago."

"But since then, not only could she not improve any further, but she often vomited blood. Now her condition has deteriorated and she is bedridden."

"Doctor Qin, please! You're the only one who can save her now."

Seeing Yun Xiang's excited expression, Qin Haodong and all the people present were a little moved by the affection the siblings had for each other.

Zhao Xingyue couldn't help saying, "Big Brother Qin, we're all classmates. Please help him."

Qin Haodong said, "Well, I'll have a look at your sister when the class is over."

"Thank you, Doctor Qin."

Only then did Yun Xiang get up.

Mei Lin said to the students, "Now I declare that Qin Haodong will be our Class President. Does anyone have any objections?"

The students suddenly fell silent. He had reached the stage of the Voiding Realm at the age of 21. In less than two days after entering the academy, he had passed the exam of the Level Six Alchemist. His medical skills had reached an incredible level.

In the face of such an excellent student, who could object? Who dared to object? Even if they wanted to object, they needed to have the ability to do so.

In this way, by way of his outstanding strength, Qin Haodong became the Class President of this class.

After the class meeting, Qin Haodong and Yun Xiang left the classroom hurriedly and went to Yun Xiang's sister's dormitory. The Little Witch and Zhao Xingyue returned to Qin Haodong's dormitory.

As they walked, Qin Haodong asked, "Your family's congenital defect should not have just been discovered. Why do you still cultivate martial arts?"

Yun Xiang sighed and said, "My family is poor. If we don't cultivate martial arts in the Lingwu Continent, we have no way out."

"Thus, even though we were aware of our congenital defects, my sister and I still proceeded on the road of cultivation without hesitation.

"In order to cure my family's disease, I studied medical skills since I was a child. Unfortunately, even after so many years of learning, I am still unable to cure my own illness."
