Chapter 1634: The Number One Person In Chaos City For Hair And Beauty
The warm sensation on her feet made Lucy feel like crying. She had never worn such comfortable shoes before.
“Sister?” Darren tilted his head with wonder.
“I’m fine,” Lucy swiftly answered before she lifted up the drapes, turning to Mr. Christopher, who was waiting outside of the carriage, and said, “Sir, we are done.”
Christopher got into the carriage, frowned when he saw the coat that was neatly folded by Lucy at the side, and asked, “Why are you not wearing the coat?”
“We are very grateful that you are bringing us to see a doctor and giving us new clothes. However, this coat is too precious, so I cannot accept it.” Lucy shook her head and smiled. “I am already very warm in these clothes. I have never been so warm before.”
Christopher felt his heart ache even more for Lucy who was smiling so innocently. He glanced at that pure white coat, and hesitated for a moment before nodding. “Alright, take a seat then. We should set off now. We might not get to line up if we are late.”
Lucy pulled Darren down onto a seat awkwardly as she curiously asked Christopher, “Is that a very famous doctor?”
“Mm-hmm. Very famous.” Christopher nodded. After pondering, he continued, “Maybe he could also be called a doctor.”
“Fantastic.” Lucy’s eyes glowed. If that doctor could make the old gentleman trust him so much, he had to be very formidable. Perhaps he could really cure Darren’s eyes.
The horse-drawn carriage finally stopped after traveling for some time.
“Let’s go, children. We’ve arrived.” Christopher got up and walked out.
“Darren, let’s go.” Lucy held onto Darren’s hands, and got out too.
Two lines of people appeared in her view. Elves, demons, and humans were lining up together.
“Are they all here to see the doctor?” Lucy was taken aback, filled with disbelief.
“Come on, children. We’ve got to go to the end of the line.” Christopher waved at the both of them before walking toward the end of the line.
“Mm-hmm,” Lucy answered. She helped Darren get off the carriage, and then followed Christopher to the end of the line.
However, the line was so long, so when would it be their turn?”
Lucy observed those people in the line carefully. Their eyes were all bright and clear, and there weren’t any wounds on their bodies. Apart from their expectant expressions that looked like they were waiting to meet an extraordinary doctor, most of them didn’t look like they were sick.
“Christopher, why did you bring your granddaughter here today? Aren’t you going to have a few more glasses of rum today?” An old man with white hair chuckled at Christopher. They were drinking buddies, so they knew each other quite well. He knew that Christopher had a granddaughter around that age, but he had never met her before.
“Yes. Today’s weather is rather good, so I decided to bring them out for a meal.” Christopher nodded smilingly. He didn’t elaborate on Lucy’s and Darren’s identity.
Lucy smiled and nodded at that old man in greeting. Since he was Mr. Christopher’s friend, he had to be a good man too.
Wasn’t this a doctor’s pharmacy, though? Why did he ask Mr. Christopher to have a few more glasses of rum? Lucy couldn’t understand.
That old man nodded at Lucy with a smile, while his gaze landed on Darren. When he saw his white eyes, he couldn’t help saying with shock, “What happened to this child’s eyes?”
The old man’s words attracted the attention of the surrounding people.
Darren hid before Lucy fearfully. Although his eyes couldn’t see, he still felt the gazes on him.
The youth was rather handsome and cute, but his eyes couldn’t see. People felt sorry for him that he couldn’t see at such a young age.
“Don’t be scared. I’m here.” Lucy grasped Darren’s hands and consoled him softly. She knew that these people didn’t mean any harm.
“This child’s eyes suddenly lost their vision recently. We have seen many doctors, and they all couldn’t help. That’s why I brought him to Boss Mag to try it out.”
He still wasn’t sure that drinking rum was the reason that his vision became clear. If he was wrong, he could harm this child, and hurt that young maiden’s feelings.
“Shouldn’t you bring him to the doctor if he couldn’t see? Why are you bringing him to Boss Mag? I’ve never heard that Boss Mag knows how to cure ophthalmological diseases?” that old man asked with befuddlement.
“Yes. I have heard that Boss Mag can cure hair loss and kidney deficiency, but I’ve never heard that he knows how to cure ophthalmological diseases?”
“Isn’t that so? Boss Mag is already the number one person in Chaos City for hair and beauty. But, if we are talking about curing ophthalmological diseases, it should be Dr. Adolphus who is more professional, right?”
The people around them chimed in.
“We have just come from Dr. Adolphus. He was helpless too.” Christopher shook his head, and said in a grave voice, “I brought this child here because my presbyopia, which was getting more and more serious in recent years, was suddenly cured when I woke up this morning. My vision became clear as if I was 20 years younger. I no longer have any problem reading the ledger.
“I didn’t do anything special these few days except coming to Mamy Restaurant and drinking rum. So tell me, were my eyes cured by Boss Mag?”
Everyone looked at Christopher after he said that. His eyes were indeed very clean and clear, without the cloudiness of the other old folks’ eyes. They resembled the eyes of a young person. They couldn’t help but wonder if Boss Mag could really cure ophthalmological diseases. Or, maybe drinking rum could make the eyes clearer?
A young man in long robes who was holding an open book stepped forward with a shy smile, and said, “I thought it was my illusion, but this old gentleman’s situation is very similar to mine. Originally, I couldn’t recognize my relatives who were standing five steps away from me, and I couldn’t differentiate a pig from a dog when they were 10 steps away from me. However, when I woke this morning, my eyes became normal, and I could see things that were 10 steps away from me clearly.”
“Wow. There’s another real-life example. Seems like Boss Mag is really good at curing illnesses.” Everyone looked at the young man with bright eyes. One case could be an accident, but two Mamy Restaurant customers’ ophthalmological diseases were cured overnight, so it had to have had something to do with Boss Mag.
Christopher’s eyes lit up upon hearing that too, and he said with surprise, “Perhaps the rum could really cure ophthalmological diseases?”
The young man shook his head. “I have been eating at Boss Mag these few days, but I don’t think your deduction is accurate, because I have never had rum before.”
The young man’s words eradicated the possibility of rum being the key.
“What can it be if it isn’t the rum?” Christopher said with a frown.
Vivian, who was listening at the side, stepped forward with pursed lips, and said, “Isn’t this a very simple deduction question? You and he have been eating at Mamy Restaurant for the past few days, but both your eyes were only suddenly cured this morning. Therefore, you two only have to think carefully about what you ate at Mamy Restaurant last night which you haven’t had before, and both of you ate it last night. Then, that would be the answer.”
“Roasted pig’s eyes!”
“Roasted pig’s eyes!”
Christopher and that young man blurted out the answer at the same time.
