Maria nodded slightly, “Charlie disappeared in Aurous Hill, in that case, there are two possibilities, One, after he disappeared, he was given a new identity and was made to hide his identity in the second way you just mentioned, the other, he was taken overseas directly after he disappeared and has been living overseas in anonymity.”
The old man said, “If it is the first possibility, then you may still be able to find him in the country. If it is the second, I am afraid it will be difficult to find him in the country.”
“It’s not in the way,” Maria replied with a smile, “Knowing his true identity, I’m already halfway there!”
She added, “I’m going to look for him at home first and if I really can’t find him, then I’ll go overseas.”
The old man asked, “Miss, where are you going to look for him?”
Maria smiled, “Naturally, I’m going to Aurous Hill, that’s where he disappeared twenty years ago, all the clues must start from there!”
The old man subconsciously said, “Miss, the Wade family and the Evans Family also started their search from Aurous Hill back then, after turning Aurous Hill upside down, they searched for many years all over the world, but never found him.
Maria said seriously, “Since the Wade family and the Evans Family have searched all over the world from Aurous Hill and have not found him, then, in my opinion, it is precisely Aurous Hill that has the greatest possibility.”
The old man asked her, “Miss, do you want to set a trigram to see if you can figure out his trail?”
“I can’t…” Maria shook her head and said, “I have tried, the trigrams show that it is difficult to identify the traces, but there is a hint of a dragon entering the sea in the trigrams…”
“I think it is because Charlie has experienced some special encounter, which has directly elevated his fate to the true meaning of the dragon frame. In any case, I can not calculate.”
The old man asked curiously, “There are things you can not calculate? Now that we have his childhood identity information, do you want to use his birth date and eight characters to calculate again?”
Maria shook her head, “I can’t even calculate his clues with my near-god trigrams, the birthdate is even less likely.”
The old man sighed, “Then, as you said, go to Aurous Hill and try! Miss, why don’t I accompany you to Aurous Hill?”
Maria did not say no, but only looked at him and said, “I see that your Qi and blood are weak, your health does not seem to be good?”
“Yes…” The old man let out a bitter smile and said, “I’m already eighty-eight this year… I have diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease… I’ve had heart attacks, stents and bypasses… And I got lung cancer a few years ago, due to this I had my left lung cut out…”
“I also had chemotherapy, my body is obviously not doing well anymore, the doctor said the other day that I’ve symptoms of kidney failure, I should start doing blood dialysis after a while, but in this condition, I shouldn’t and can’t afford any more torment, I’ll be satisfied if I can live another two years.”
Maria frowned and asked him, “Can’t you do a kidney transplant?”
The old man laughed and said, “Look at my body, can I still afford such a big operation? I guess when I get on the operating table, the new lung will not work before it is put in.”
“That’s true.” Maria nodded and said indifferently, “Let me take your pulse…”
The old man was shocked by the words and asked in a flattered manner, “Miss, I’m afraid this… Is not allowed… How dare I ask you to take my pulse…”
Maria waved her hand, “There is nothing that can’t be done.”
With that, she pointed to the armrest of the chair and said, “Put your hand here.”
“Thank you, Miss!” The old man hurriedly put his left hand on the armrest of the chair.
Maria’s fingers gently moved on his pulse, closed her eyes and felt for a moment, then withdrew her hand, sighed and said very directly, “Sorry, although I know some medicine, but may not be profound enough, In your case, I am powerless to make any changes…”
When the old man heard this, he was stunned for a moment, then he laughed, “Miss, there’s no need to blame yourself, I’m already satisfied that I’ve lived this long!”
Maria was silent for a moment and said, “Let me tell your fortune, my level of fortune-telling is still much better than the level of medicine.”
After saying that and without waiting for the old man’s response, she took out nine copper coins from her pocket. Then, she placed the coins on the coffee table in front of her and as before, divided them into three equal rows in a diagonal fashion, grabbed three first and threw them on the table.
Immediately, she looked at the trigram of the copper coins and frowned, “The trigram shows that your life is coming to an end, at most, in half a year…”
“Half a year?” The old man’s expression was astonished and he froze on the spot as if he had been casted with a fixation spell.
However, he quickly came back to his senses and let out a miserable smile, “Although it is shorter than I expected, but it does not matter, half a year is enough time for me to explain the arrangements after…”
Maria did not speak, continued to pick up the three copper coins left, once again threw them on the top of the coffee table.
This time, her eyebrows were gently raised and she spoke, “However, the current trigram has a silver lining! If you can seize this chance of life, you can live a hundred years!”
“A hundred years of long life?” The old man suddenly widened his eyes and blurted out, “This… Is this possible? To live to be a hundred years old, there are at least twelve years left…”
Maria said seriously, “The trigrams do not lie, your life, there are only two possibilities, either, within six months or, after a hundred years…”
The old man said with some surprise, “Miss… Then… Then how do I grab this ray of life?”
Maria once again grabbed the last three copper coins and threw them on the coffee table, then she looked at the nine coins on the desk and frowned.
The old man saw that she looked grave and did not dare to ask questions, but could only wait anxiously.
A few moments later, Maria, puzzled, said, “Strange, this trigram says that your life is surprisingly related to me, but I really have no way to renew your life… If my father was still alive, he certainly had a way, but unfortunately, he had not taught me that kind of skill. It… It may also be because I am not that piece of material…”
The old man did not know what to be happy about at this time, after all, even Maria could not understand the reason, he had no way to understand it.
At this time, Maria grabbed the southernmost coin, pinched it and held it up in front of the old man and said seriously, “This Yongle Tongbao back three coins, in my trigram represents the birth gate, It is at the southernmost end of the nine coins, which means your birth gate is south of Eastcliff…”
“South of Eastcliff…” the old man muttered, confused.
Maria’s eyes suddenly lit up and she smiled, “Although I don’t have my father’s skills, I know one person who certainly does!”
After saying that, she looked at the old man and said seriously, “This south of Eastcliff must be Aurous Hill!”
