Chapter 29.2 You’re teasing me, right?

“Senior, has your hand been injured before?” Yan Hao suddenly asked.

Returning to his senses, Sheng Heng nodded gently, “Yes, I was injured when I was a child.”

“No wonder your fingers are swollen like this. With this condition of yours, you can’t practice with high intensity.” Yan Hao said.

Sheng Heng’s expression stiffened and he withdrew his hand, “I’m a mech warrior.”

Yan Hao froze for a moment, then understood. Senior Sheng Heng’s hand had been injured when he was a child, so he himself should know very well that he wasn’t suitable to become a mecha warrior given his condition, but he still enrolled in the mecha piloting department. There was only one explanation for this, he liked piloting mechs.

“Ordinary ointments for this condition of yours probably won’t help, let me mix some medicine for you.” Yan Hao said as he stood up then said to Cheng Wen Kang who was at the side, “Senior Cheng, can you get me a basin and a kettle of hot water?”

“Yes, I’ll go get it.” Cheng Wenkang ran to prepare them hurriedly and returned with a basin and a kettle of hot water in a short while.

Yan Hao opened the bag he had brought with him this time, took out two packets of herbs from inside, then poured one of them into the basin, followed by the hot water that had just been boiled, covering the herbs with it.

“Huh, little junior, why didn’t you buy the pre-prepaid medicine packet?” The strain on a mech warrior’s fingers was a common condition, so the pharmacy shop had medicine specifically for this kind of strain. Those who needed them just needed to go to the shop, buy the medicine, then use hot water to configure it in a certain ratio and soak it for fifteen minutes to achieve the healing effect.

Of course, if a pharmacist used his mental energy to stimulate the medicinal power a second time during the treatment, then the treatment would be a bit more effective. But for a common illness like this, it was a bit too extravagant to ask a pharmacist to stimulate the medicinal power, so only some of the top mechs would do so. The reason why Cheng Wenkang had called Yan Hao over wasn’t only to create an opportunity for his boss, but more importantly, he wanted Yan Hao to come over to help stimulate the effects of the medicine. After all, Yan Hao had studied pharmacy for six years in high school, so could at least be considered to be a Master pharmacist.

“Oh, this …… this treatment is a little better.” It was only when Cheng Wenkang’s words reminded Yan Hao that he reacted jerkily to the fact that he seemed to have made a mistake.

In the last few years of his previous life, he had been serving the veterans at the Ministry of Military Affairs’ healing planet, where every single person there had serious hand injuries and in order to treat their injuries, he had spent a month adjusting the ratio of the herbs. When he had gone to the pharmacy shop to buy the medicine packet just now, he had subconsciously purchased the ones he was used to using.

“You researched it yourself?” Sheng Heng asked.

“En.” Although it had been discovered ten years later, he had worked it out himself.

When Yan Hao saw that most of the medicinal properties in the basin had been stimulated by the hot water, he gestured for Sheng Heng to put his hand in.

Without hesitation, Sheng Heng put his hands into the basin, but the pitch-black medicinal liquid didn’t move to his wrists immediately.

“Inject mental energy.” Yan Hao said again.

Freezing, Sheng Heng asked subconsciously, “Me?”

“Yes, inject your mental energy into the medicine.” Yan Hao nodded his head.

“No, little junior, aren’t you mistaken? The matter of stimulating the medicinal properties of an herb should only be done by a pharmacist, even if ordinary people have mental energy, they won’t understand the medicinal properties of herbs.” Cheng Wenkang said, a little confused.

The reason why they needed the assistance of a pharmacist was because they didn’t know the medicinal properties of the herbs, what’s more it was a mixture of dozens of herbs. If something went wrong in the process of stimulating the medicinal properties, the effect of the medicine would change. A pharmacist would be able to master this change through his own knowledge of the medicinal properties, but others wouldn’t be able to do so.

“I have improved this one, however what I have improved is not the medicinal effect, but the method of using it.” Yan Hao explained at the two people’s uncomprehending gaze, “I once built a model that analysed all the main ingredients within the Muscle Relief medicine, and then worked out a very stable ratio value. Under this ratio value, the possibility of the herbs’ properties being stimulated twice to produce mutations can be reduced to 0.12%. In other words ……”

“That means that without a pharmacist’s mental energy to stimulate it, anyone’s mental energy can stimulate the medicine a second time?” Sheng Heng reacted immediately.

“Yes. This improvement doesn’t change much in terms of the healing effect, but it’s better because it’s easy to use.” In the previous life, on the healing planet belonging to the military ministry, there had only been a dozen pharmacists, but thousands of veterans, and their hand injuries had all been very serious, so once they started hurting, ordinary medicines didn’t work, hence they could only rely on pharmacists to make secondary stimulations. But the disparity between the two was so great that Yan Hao came up with such a solution.

“Senior, try to induce the potency yourself first, then I’ll do it again for you and then you’ll make a comparison. I’ve tested it, and the difference in potency between the two is within a one percentage point.” Yan Hao said.

“Okay.” Sheng Heng responded, then injected his mental energy into the medicinal liquid anxiously.

“Right, in order to prevent that 0.12% error from occurring, I added Harmony Leaf Vine to the herbs, which will emit a scent similar to alcohol once the medicinal effect deviates. So once you smell the scent of alcohol, hurry up and stop stimulating the medicinal properties, because it means that the medicinal properties within the herbs have become unstable.” Yan Hao had always been strict in his work, so even a 0.12% error had to be prevented.

After about five minutes had passed like this, amazement shown gradually from the depths of Sheng Heng’s eyes as he looked at Yan Hao in shock.

“Boss, how is it? Did it really work?” Cheng Wenkang asked impatiently.

“Yes, it’s effective.” Sheng Heng said in a resolute and decisive manner.

“Then stop for a while, I’ll use my mental energy to help you stimulate the herbs again and then you can compare it.” Yan Hao said.

“There’s no need.” Sheng Heng shook his head, refusing, “I’ve used medicine stimulated by pharmacists to heal before and the effect is indeed similar.”

“Holy sh*t, is it really that godly? Then I have to try it out too.” Cheng Wenkang immediately got excited, “Little junior, should I just do what you just did and soak the herbs in boiling water?”

“Mm.” Yan Hao nodded his head.

When Cheng Wenkang heard this, he immediately ran to find another kettle, made a mixture of herbs and soaked it by himself just like Yan Hao had just done, put his hands in it and then used his mental energy to stimulate it. After about two minutes of doing so, he let out a cry, the word ‘d*mn’ coming out of his mouth.

“It really works. Boss it really works, it’s simply amazing. Little junior, you’re a genius.” Cheng Wenkang praised.

“It’s not that exaggerated, I just simplified the method of using it. The healing effect is still the same.” Yan Hao told him.

“No, this discovery of yours is important.” Sheng Heng said immediately, “In the Ministry of Military Affairs, only mech warriors of level six or above have the right to request a pharmacist to treat their hand injuries. Most other mech warriors aren’t able to enjoy this privilege, and these people, are the majority. Yan Hao, this discovery of yours doesn’t change anything in terms of medicinal effects, but it can help more people.”

[Pharmacist Yan Hao, thank you, you have helped a lot of us.]

In his previous life, Yan Hao had researched medicine for more than ten years and had made many discoveries, but the only one he seemed to have gotten thanks for, was this improved formula that he hadn’t put much effort into calculating. It was also one of the few memories he had from his previous life that he was still fond of.

“Hmm.” Yan Hao nodded heavily, a bright smile in his eyes.

In the previous life, his existence hadn’t been meaningless. There had been people who had thanked him.

However this smile of his, froze Sheng Heng in his tracks.

“Senior, it’s almost time for you to remove your hand, let me help you with a massage.” Saying this, Yan Hao reached out to take Sheng Heng’s palm out of the medicinal liquid and before he could react pressed his acupuncture points gently.

The tingling sensation of that gentle massage tantalized the tip of Sheng Heng’s heart.

Little junior, you’re teasing me, right? You definitely are.

  1. Aww, he remembers those few thanks and praises from his past life so acutely, when it’s clear he did so much to help others then. I’m glad he can use the knowledge again in this life with friends who properly appreciate both him for himself and his achievements.
