“This… this isn’t too good. Qi Xiaojie is still a girl. Our ZhongWen is also unmarried. If this matter spreads out…”
Qi RongYue looked at her with clear-as-water eyes and an open expression. “Rest assured, furen. I am a doctor. In the eyes of a doctor, those with illnesses are not separated by gender.”
She slowly loosened her hand on Zheng Shizi’s belt. She half-bowed and unhurriedly straightened her body. Emitting a noble and distinct temperament, she took a step back and said, “If Zheng furen is unwilling, you can find a doctor to perform acupuncture, with my guidance at the side.”
Zheng daren’s face turned red. He huffily stared at his furen. “What time is it that you still care about that? Even Qi Xiaojie doesn’t care. Why are you so long-winded?”
Zheng furen also felt ashamed. A guniang didn’t think it was taboo, so why should they?
“I apologize. My furen is short-sighted so she thinks about these things!” Zheng furen nodded to Qi RongYue and took two steps back.
Qi RongYue smiled faintly back. She turned to Sangui [the little manservant] and said, “Help your Shizi take off all his clothes.”
Sangui was tongue-tied. “All, all of them?”
Qi RongYue nodded. “All of them. It’s not impossible to perform acupuncture through clothing. But Shizi is heavily injured. We cannot afford to miscalculate and be sloppy.”
Zheng daren hurriedly said, “Qi Xiaojie is right. We cannot be slightly negligent with acupuncture treatment. Take them all off. Didn’t Qi Xiaojie say in her eyes those with illnesses aren’t separated by gender?”
