The Charismatic Charlie Wade - Season 2 Episode 98
The secret pill was developed by a famous Chinese physician, Sun Simiao, during the Tang Dynasty. His widely circulated works were all but lost. His most famous was a memorandum containing the history of all the clinical experience and medical practices in the past dynasties, and these were also included in the Apocalyptic Book.
This one was more clinically valuable compared to the other two medical books. However, not many people knew about it nowadays. It seemed to have been lost completely, and many medical practitioners had never even heard of this name before.
Charlie quickly prepared a box of six walnut-sized honey pills according to the prescriptions in the medical books.
As soon as he was done preparing the pills, Jacob and Claire had also just returned.
Jacob was in a lot of pain, and it was becoming increasingly uncomfortable for him to walk and move around.
Claire was also becoming more worried, and she quickly asked, “Dad, if the massage did not work, should we head to the hospital so that you can get a check-up instead? What do you think about that?”
Jacob simply waved his hand as he said, “Oh, I do not want to go to the hospital anymore. It is so troublesome. I will have to do a blood test and a urine test. I am fine now. I just want to sit down and rest for a while.”
Claire had brought Jacob out for a massage to enhance his blood circulation. However, Jacob had not expected it not to have any effect whatsoever. In fact, he felt that his head was hurting even more right now. He just wanted to sit down and rest. Otherwise, he was afraid that he would really faint.
Just then, Charlie walked out with the pills that he had just prepared.
Claire could smell the scent of medicinal herbs floating in the air. Looking at Charlie with a shocked expression on her face, she asked, “Charlie, are you really making some medicine?”
Charlie pointed at the pills in his hand before he said, “Dad, this pill can invigorate your blood circulation and remove any blood clots in your brain. It is very effective. Why don’t you try one?”
Jacob looked at Charlie as he picked up one of the pills and observed it carefully. He could smell a particularly fresh medicinal scent passing through his nostrils, and he instantly felt refreshed.
He looked up at Charlie in surprise as he asked, “You made this pill yourself?”
“Yes!” Charlie replied immediately. “I just made it.”
Jacob asked again, “Have you studied medicine before?”
Charlie quickly replied, “I learned it from an old man who used to work as a cleaner at the orphanage. His ancestors were all Chinese physicians.”
Jacob looked at Charlie in disbelief before he asked, “Are you sure about this? Will something that a cleaner taught you actually work?”
“I guarantee that it will definitely be effective. Dad, why don’t you take one of the pills? I am sure that you will feel better in an instant.”
Jacob felt a little nervous, but as he thought about his current situation and the pain that he was feeling right then, he made up his mind and quickly swallowed the pill.
Before Claire could even ask Charlie about the origins of the pill, Jacob had already taken it. Thus, Claire quickly looked at him and asked, “Dad, how are you feeling?”
“It seems as though… my head is no longer hurting that much even though I have just taken the pill.” Jacob was also pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of the pill.
Even though the pills looked plain and unremarkable, he felt as though he was completely refreshed and energized as soon as he took the pill. It was much easier to breathe, and he felt that his head was much clearer. Moreover, Jacob could feel the pain that he had been feeling at the back of his head slowly disappearing.
Jacob then looked at Charlie happily as he asked, “Charlie, where did you buy this medicine?”
Charlie replied, “Mr. Quinton delivered some medicinal herbs over to me just now.”
Jacob was very pleased, and he praised Graham. “Mr. Quinton is such a good person! He delivered medicinal herbs over to us as soon as he heard that I had suffered some injuries.”
Claire also said, “Mr. Quinton is really a very kind and humble man even though he has such a high status in Aurous Hill. If only uncle were half as nice as Mr. Quinton, things would not have ended up this way.”
As soon as she mentioned Christopher, Jacob had a somber expression on his face. He then waved his hand and said, “Don’t mention him anymore.”
Jacob returned to his bedroom to rest after taking the medicine.
At this time, Charlie noticed that Claire also looked a little unhappy. Therefore, he tried to cheer her up immediately. “You should rest too. Don’t be angry anymore. The Wilson family will definitely pay for what they did today!”
