He knew that it was very difficult to find a way to make money in this poor mountain village. How could they freely tell others? If it was him, he certainly would not tell others.
YuanQiu shook her head. “There’s nothing I can’t say. That is actually not an ordinary weed. That is a medicinal herb. It can be made into medicinal cuisine that can cure diseases. That’s why it was sold at such a high price.”
Uncle Zhang understood. “So that’s how it is. No wonder I thought it was unfamiliar. I thought it was some new wild weed.
“But YuanQiu, how did you know that that was a medicinal herb? You’ve been living in this village since you were three and I have never seen you learn medicine.”
YuanQiu’s raised her eyebrow. What did Uncle Zhang mean? She had been living in the village since she was three? Then what about before she was three?
She saw that Uncle Zhang said it casually, so she didn’t ask him. She merely replied, “It’s nothing strange. When I was eight years old, I went with my father to gather firewood. I was playing around so I got lost. I met a white-bearded old man in the woods. It started to rain that day and he saw that I was pitiful, so he let me stay with him. The old man taught me how to read and identify herbs and some simply medical skills. He sent me down the mountain three days later. He also gave me one of his medical books. I have been learning it in secret over these few years. Now, there’s some small success.”
Uncle Zhang nodded. “There seems to be such a matter. One year, you wandered off when you and your father went up the mountain. Your father gathered a lot of people to go up to the mountain to find you, but they didn’t find you for a whole night.
“A few days later, your mother was about to prepare funeral arrangements for you, but you suddenly returned. You scared your parents half to death and they never brought you up the mountain again.”
