"Oh no, not with the long face", Chong said jokingly to Xi to lighten the mood.
"Bro-brother Chong", Xi said stuttering feeling overwhelmed by her feeling right now.
'Mark can't explain it that much, it's just that there is something lifted in her heart, she felt something left herself.'
She didn't know that the something she's talking about is the remaining soul of the original Chu Mei in the body, it's just go away because the soul felt contended on what Chong said to Xi.
Now Xi felt lighter, felt energetic, and felt relief. In this Xi can start a new life, with new identity.
"Don't worry Brother Xi you'll not be alone in this lifetime you'll be with me, even though I just known you today, I can feel that your a good person because of that I can be relieved with you." Chong said unbashedly to Xi while looking to him happily.
"Brother Chong, I promise I'll be good, I'll help with your work and do anything you say", Xi retorded to Chong, smiling widely.
"Don't bother Brother Xi, you don't have to do that."Chong said.
"No Brother Chong, I insist to help you, I really wanted to help you in curing different illness and in that we can lessen your work", Xi said with pleading eyes.
"Alright, alright, you win brother Xi."- Chong said laughing half way.
The day started next day, Chong roamed his house with Xi, for him to know better about his house and courtyard.
Chong also introduced various herbs to his brother Xi like ginseng (人参/人參, rénshēn), wolfberry (枸杞子), dong quai (Angelica sinensis, 当归/當歸, dāngguī), astragalus (黄耆/黃耆, huángqí), atractylodes (白术/白朮, báizhú), bupleurum (柴胡, cháihú), cinnamon (cinnamon twigs (桂枝, guìzhī) and cinnamon bark (肉桂, ròuguì)), coptis (黄连/黃連, huánglián), ginger (姜/薑, jiāng), hoelen (茯苓, fúlíng), licorice (甘草, gāncǎo), ephedra sinica (麻黄/麻黃, máhuáng), peony (white: 白芍, báisháo and reddish: 赤芍, chìsháo), rehmannia (地黄/地黃, dìhuáng), rhubarb (大黄/大黃, dàhuáng), and salvia (丹参/丹參, dānshēn).
Xi looks interested in what Chong is discussing. Chong house is like an hospital and a pharmacy because in his house he almost got everything. He also says what are the uses of every herb that he introduced.
But actually Xi already knows almost all the herbs that Bo Chong said because Mark in her spare time likes to read Chinese traditional medicine so she is knowledgeable in some aspects.
So after they roamed Chong house.Chong said that he has more collection of herbs in his secret underground even though Chong only met Xi for a short time he already trust him because of his intuition.
When they went underground Xi almost droll in what he see.
Inside there are too many herbs and many are new to him and in that Bo Chong started to name each herb
and it's uses.
After some time Xi became frustrated because now she know how geeky is Chong about medicine.
Like when Chong is talking about ginseng he talkels about ginseng very vividly. He said like this :"Ginseng is a herb that helps you to have a healthy body, in can help you to prevent many diseases, it keeps the body warm, it is also good for our stomach because it helps us regulate our bodily function, it can also help to cure some minor wound by in taking this plant....blaaahh ....blaaahh",
Xi thought ,' Brother Xi is truly amazing he can talk, talk, and talk but just it should be in line with medicine, what a brilliant fellow, you got there, people here should be like brother Chong unlike those monsters, the slave traders who just think about themselves not thinking about the goodness of others but they also wanted to ruin others life'.
