The efflux surged in Old Mr. Bane, and Jagoan fed him various kinds of elixir.
The old man slowly regained consciousness as he opened his eyes.
The first thing he did was feel the change in him, which blossomed into ecstasy. A pleasant feeling ran through every cell of his body as he found his meridians unclogged and his breathing smooth. It was the feeling he had not felt for decades!
Although he was one step away from death’s door numerous times during the nerve-wracking process, Jagoan never failed to bring him back to life.
As an afterthought, Old Mr. Bane faced sideways to thank Jagoan, who could not put up with it any longer.
“C-Congratulations, Old Mr…” Jagoan’s vision went black as he fell into a swoon.
Old Mr. Bane caught him with quick hands. “Thank you so much, Jagoan. You saved us. You saved the Bane Family…”
The higher one stood, the further one could see.
The second generation of the Bane Family was incapable of protecting the lineage. Even if the Banes were one of the Ten Greatest Families, the avaricious wolves in Bainbridge would pounce overthem once Old Mr. Bane fell.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Banes would be over in less than a year.
That knowledge had been plaguing Old Mr. Bane the whole time. Otherwise, death would not fear him one bit.
Jagoan finally woke up at noon, finding himself in an unfamiliar room. “Phew… I could’ve died from exhaustion if it wasn’t for my nimbus.”
The treatment required a high level of concentration, hence the exhaustion. It was true that he had restored his cultivation base, but high-intensity treatment could make him faint.
Right when he got up from bed, Old Mr. Bane heard the noise and entered the room. “Dr. Larson, you’re up. How do you feel?”
A glint of surprise fleeted in Jagoan’s eyes the moment he saw Old Mr. Bane.
Although he was the doctor in charge, the elixirs that were used and their efficacy was merely pages of memory in his head. Now, he finally saw the tangible effect on Old Mr. Bane.
Not only did Old Mr. Bane’s skin tighten, but the age spots also vanished. He even grew strands of black hair too!
The lifeless air around him morphed into a brisk energy. In short, he was fully recovered from the internal damages and looked at least twenty years younger.
Nodding, Jagoan was satisfied with his achievement as he waved languidly. “Don’t sweat… I’ve just overworked myself. I’ll be full of beans after some rest.”
“Great. Since you’re awake, let’s grab a meal together. Albert, ask the maids to prepare something.” The grin on Old Mr. Bane’s face did not fade one bit the whole time.
Jagoan‘s stomach was growling after a night-long work, so his stamina had reached its bare minimum, prompting him to accept the offer gladly.
Entering the parlor, he caught sight of the feast that filled the wide, round table.
Supplementary ingredients were added to every dish, displaying Old Mr. Bane’s generosity. He made no effort to conceal that it was all prepared for Jagoan.
“Come, Dr. Larson. Take a seat…”
The two of them sat down while the others left them alone.
“Old Master Bane, your five organs have completely recovered, but since this is a prolonged illness, you gotta be aware of what you eat. You should avoid alcohol, spicy food…” Jagoan advised.
As Old Mr. Bane nodded while listening to the young man, his gaze filled with gratitude and amusement.
His future is promising…
I’m not sure how old he is, but he looks like he’s in his twenties. He’s a monster to be this skillful in medicine at such a young age!
As for Jagoan’s advice, Old Mr. Bane was aware it would be a pipe dream to heal the prolonged illness overnight. Therefore, Albert listed the matters to watch out for, as per mentioned by Jagoan.
That afternoon, they shared an enjoyable lunch.
