She took a bit of the medicine and tasted it. Then Zi You helped Wang Yiping up. “The temperature is just right. Come, mother. Drink the medicine.”
Wang Yiping pushed it away. She said weakly, “Have Imperial Doctor Qin come over. It’s not that mother doesn’t trust you, but you just started studying medicine. Can you do it?”

First Laoye listened to the yiniangs’ words and knew that First Furen was bitten by a snake. He clearly and angrily scolded, ‘Why didn’t it bite her to death? Slut!’ But since you lied to her, what will we do if Laoye never comes to see Furen?”
Zi You seemingly sighed and faintly said, “What else can I do? Poor mother! If she finds out father said such words, how can she be at ease to recuperate? Father, really… how can he listen to those yiniangs? Ai…”
