Chapter 1 General Weird Sickness
In the center of Luo Yang province, Xiao Zhi, there was no one who didn’t know this name.
As said, he is an orphan, he was adopted by Hui Wu Monk, learning and practicing martial art. Everyone knew how excellent his marital skills are. The people who were trying to test his marital art, none of them could see the second day sun rise.
Moreover, when he was twelve years old he joined the army and repeatedly made an meritorious military service. No wonder the court was looking for him non-stop and his administrative position was increased from the second level to the great general. Maybe from second level administrator to great administrator might not count as big achievement but his status and power which is 1/3 of country military force is in his hand. It is enough for people to speak carefully with him.
But the most “legendary rumor” is, that the twenty five years old Xiao Zhi doesn’t have a wife and concubine, moreover he doesn’t look forward to have any relationship with any popular entertainer or scandal being rumor… videlicet. He is so “clean” that even the citizen of Luo Yang takes this matter in restaurant as a conversation topic, every day they are observing about their great general reason of being “clean/innocent”.
The slender slim body sitting on the chair. the beautiful good-looking face is showing expressionless-hard to describe expression, by being supported on his left hand, Xiao Zhi is looking at his hand that is looking at the book and reading one page, his slender finger will gently struck the page and turn to the next page, while the other hand is above the desk allowing Doctor Yu to examine his pulse.
Doctor Yu is trembling while putting the hand back, looking at the pale face of Xia Zhi who has dark circles under his eyes. Frown, sighing why is he is so unlucky today, being asked to come to Xiao’s residence. If he knew earlier he would have asked for an sick leave and took rest at home.
“How?” very calm voice asking, Doctor was stunned almost for half day until he gains himself, realizing when the great general shouted at him.
“General, I am afraid you might worry about the country, so you are a little exhausted as long was you take care, i believe you will….”
“I am just asking you, when will I be able to sleep? Xiao Zhi impatiently cuts Doctor Yu words.
“This…Since it has been three days general hasn’t slept I will prescribe sleeping medicine, maybe it would help.”
“Is it ginseng, Qing pi, The bark of cork tree (philodendron), angelica, radix, sheng ma , herb, zhi cao, these kind of medicine?” Xiao Zhi raised his eyebrow.
Doctor Yu felt his sweat dripping down from his forehead, in court who doesn’t know from the high to the low rank level making the general sleep is harder than official examination. The general body itself is the group of poison, frankly to say even by using the drug to make him unconscious is something impossible.
“Does general has others opinion?” Doctor Yu asking in very “modest” way. According to the past experienced, if the eyes of General has deepen it means his temperament would be worse, and now… he has been to the dangerous mood.
“Are you asking me “my opinion”? ” He looks like sweeping with his cold eyes and his voice tone changed. Once the doctor heard it, his body stagger while taking three steps backward.
This Xiao general… now just because he is in bad mood, he could even slaughter the small doctor. Desperately, the doctor tries to turn his brain quickly, the doctor almost losing his smile said : “This lowly has method, maybe general could give a try. General body temperature kinda cold, causing the difficulty to get proper sleep. Perhaps by making general body temperature same with the average people, general might easy to get sleep”, paused for a moment, doctor Yu tries to see the expressions of Xiao Zhi, and continue to say : “Since the ancient time, there were often the people who has warm body temperature turn to be able warming others too, maybe general could give it a try.”
“Doctor Zhang Yu, do you mean, asking someone to warm my general body?” The head of Xiao residence house keeper who stood not so far and impatiently, finally spoke out.
Doctor Yu old face suddenly red, “General can find some young maid to hug and get some warm temperature…”
The people of the entire Luo Yang know that the general Xiao is notoriously abstinence, he is not attracted to women. If the general won’t go according to the method, it won’t be his matter anymore if the general still can’t sleep.
Thinking about it, Doctor Yu is in very good mood just trying to relinquish himself and getting out from the Xiao residence.
Suddenly, the sitting Xiao Zhi stand up from the chair, walking toward the lady-maid who is serving tea who posses obsessive looks, he grab her and hugs her on his chest and trying to close his eyes.
The chin falling to ground!
ah~ is this ok?
Doctor Yu and the head house keeper, Xiao Ren dumbstruck seeing the scene in front of them, feeling as if there were lighting hit their head through the door. Even they know the general is someone who is acting strangely but this thing too…
“Does my eyes has problems? Doctor Yu turning look at Xiao Ren.
“I thought… No.” Xiao Ren struggling shook his head.
Shortly after, Xiao Zhi opened his eyes releasing the maid from his arm and seriously said to Xiao Ren : “Next time change it with the fatter ones, this one is so thin, too loose when hugging.”
