Chapter 149 - Wouldn't That Be Godlike?
A moment later, the child suddenly opened her eyes.
The second prince couldn’t help but ask, “Sister, were you recalling your dream just now?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded and said in a soft voice, “That’s right, Uncle Advisor, bring the current prescription over for me to smell!”
The princess said that she had dreamed of a prescription before. That sounded like a fantasy.
However, because Gu Nuo’er’s status was noble and her two older brothers doted on her, even though Advisor Cao felt that this was a waste of time, he still did as he was told and asked the soldiers to bring over the medicinal herbs that had yet to be cooked today.
Gu Nuo’er opened the bag of medicinal herbs with her small hands and sniffed it carefully. Then, she closed her eyes and pondered for a while.
She didn’t even open her eyes and quickly picked out a few medicinal herbs with her small hands. “Change this to the root of white peony and that long one to Spica Prunellae [2. The spike of the herb Prunella vulgaris L..].”
After saying that, she opened her eyes and saw everyone looking at her in a daze.
The child was furious. She placed her hands on her hips and said angrily, “Don’t look down on children. I really dreamed of it before. Elder brothers, go do as I said.
“Even if it’s wrong, there won’t be any losses. But if we don’t give it a try, there won’t be any chances at all.”
The third prince immediately responded to his sister’s words and took note of the items. He then quickly went to arrange for the soldiers to go buy the medicine.
He patted Gu Zitang’s arm. “Second Brother, money.”
Gu Zitang stared blankly. “I have to pay for this?!”
“I’ve given you all my silver just now. There’s a limited amount of silver in the military camp now. Previously, I was the one who subsidized them. Since you’re here today, it’s your turn to do a good deed.”
Gu Nuo’er looked at Gu Zitang with her watery eyes. “Second Brother, lives are at stake!”
Gu Zitang sighed. “I’ve lost to you guys.”
Since things had come down to this point, he took out a hundred-tael note and handed it to the soldier.
He said generously, “Go and buy everything my sister said. Get the best ones. If you don’t have enough money, come and get more from me.”
Since he was going to do a good deed, he might as well see through it to the end.
Faced with Gu Nuo’er’s starry eyes, it was difficult for Gu Zitang not to want to be a hero.
This must be the burden that an older brother has to maintain their image to their younger sibling.
Advisor Cao was extremely touched and invited the two princes and the princess to the main hall to have tea while they waited.
After a while, the soldier who went out to run the errand came back. He asked the military doctor to take a look. The prescription was exactly as the little princess had said.
“It’s just thatâ€¦” The military doctor was an old man with a white beard.” This subject has been a doctor for many years, but I’ve never heard that such a prescription can stop bleeding and dissolve blood clots.”
Gu Nuo’er held onto a piece of pastry and shook her feet as she said softly, “Then you’ve heard about it now. Military doctor grandpa, quickly go and brew the medicine!”
They waited for an hour before the bowl of medicine was finally done.
Other than Gu Nuo’er, everyone was extremely nervous.
This was because the little princess’s words sounded too naive.
How could anyone dream of a prescription? Wouldn’t that be godlike?
However, an hour later, the first soldier who took the medicine stopped bleeding even though it was bleeding non-stop previously!
After the first, there was quickly a second, a third…
The military doctor was almost amazed!
When Gu Nuo’er heard the news, she shook her feet calmly. “Oh, it indeed works. Don’t throw away the remaining medicinal dregs. Apply them onto the wounds and they’ll heal faster.”
With the little princess’s instructions, no one hesitated this time around and quickly did as she said.
The third prince, Gu Ziyao, couldn’t help but ask, “Sister, did you really dream of this?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded obediently. “Yes, there’s a huge room in my dream. It’s filled with medical books!”
The child thought to herself that Grandfather Taishang Laojun had 36 libraries and this was only one of them.
