Chapter 1102: The Treatment
With no flies buzzing around, Dustin, after knocking out Caden with a swift strike, began to focus on the treatment.
Caden’s condition was a result of practicing forbidden techniques, causing an overuse of life force, damage to his meridians, and harm to his organs.
The recent altercation with Mr. Tanaka had exacerbated his condition.
At this moment, Caden resembled an overinflated balloon that could burst at any moment if not handled carefully.
Dustin used silver needles to puncture specific acupuncture points, stabilizing his Internal energy and blood first. Then, he used his true Internal energy (Qi) to clear blocked meridians and repair damaged areas.
Further treatment would require medication.
Time passed gradually.
Silver needles fell one by one from Dustin’s hands onto Caden’s body.
Starting with the head, then the chest, and finally the abdomen, Dustin meticulously inserted the needles, making Caden look like a porcupine.
After the needle treatment, Dustin extended his fingers and lightly flicked them, causing the numerous silver needles to vibrate and rotate. Strands of profound and pure Internal energy followed the needles, rapidly entering Caden’s various acupuncture points.
This process continued for about an incense stick’s worth of time.
When Dustin’s forehead started to sweat slightly, he finally stopped infusing Internal energy.
In the end, he waved his hand and instantly collected all the silver needles.
“Is it over?” Lily asked, her brow furrowing with uncertainty.
Caden still lay on the hospital bed, showing no signs of waking up.
“He was just knocked unconscious. He’ll wake up in a while,” Dustin assured.
He took out a piece of paper and wrote a prescription, handing it to Lily. “Follow this prescription to gather the herbs. Boil them into three portions and drink them consecutively for seven days. That should lead to a complete recovery.”
“Understood,” Lily accepted the prescription and glanced at it before instructing someone to gather the herbs.
Dustin added one more serious warning, “One more thing, Caden’s condition was caused by practicing Soul-Devouring Technique. He almost lost his life. When he regains consciousness, make sure to advise him not to practice such forbidden arts again. Otherwise, his condition might relapse, and even immortals won’t be able to save him.”
“I understand. I’ll talk to him seriously,” Lily nodded earnestly.
“Alright, my task is done. I won’t linger here any longer. Farewell,” Dustin politely bid farewell and prepared to leave.
“Dustin, I’ll walk you out,” Shiela hurriedly offered.
“No need. Take good care of your father here. If you have any questions, you can contact me anytime,” Dustin replied with a slight smile before turning and exiting the room.
After a while, Garrett and the others returned to the hospital room.
“Aunt, I just saw Dustin leave. Has Uncle’s illness been cured?” Garrett inquired cautiously.
“It should be,” Lily replied uncertainly.
“If it’s cured, why hasn’t he woken up yet?” Garrett questioned.
“Aunt, could you have been deceived? That guy is clearly bluffing, knowing his limitations. That’s why he made a quick escape,” Vivian suggested with a wise look.
“It’s very likely! People like this, who deceive for money, stop at nothing!” Chase added indignantly.
“Don’t make baseless accusations! Dustin is not a fraud!” Shiela protested, feeling displeased.
“Shiela, you’re too naive. You don’t understand how wicked people can be,” Garrett shook his head.
“Exactly, Shiela, don’t let Dustin’s smooth talk fool you. If he really had the skills, why didn’t he cure Uncle Caden earlier?” Vivian questioned.
“My dad’s illness has already been cured. He’ll wake up after a short rest,” Shiela argued.
“Hmph! Do you really believe this nonsense? If Uncle Caden wakes up today, I’ll jump off the hospital roof!” Vivian vowed solemnly.
As soon as she uttered these words, Caden, who had been in a deep slumber, seemed to sense something and suddenly opened his eyes.
