Chapter 331: If You Say You Like It, It Must Mean You Do Like It

The old beggar did not let her wait too long. He circulated his internal strength for one more microscopic circulation and then opened his eyes.

When he saw Lu Liangwei, he turned toward her with a smile. “Sorry to have kept you waiting, Miss Lu.”

He got down from the heated platform as he spoke.

Lu Liangwei shook her head. “There’s nothing to apologize for, Senior. I’ve only just arrived. Ah yes, how are you feeling now?”

The old beggar replied gratefully, “It’s all thanks to you that my health issues aren’t too serious now, Miss Lu.”

As he said this, he suddenly kneeled in front of Lu Liangwei and said somewhat agitatedly, “I will never forget my gratitude for you saving my life, Miss.”

Lu Liangwei was startled. She quickly bent down to help him up. “Senior, what are you doing?”

The old beggar shook his head and evaded her hands. He was sincere. “Miss Lu, I should kneel, for I owe you a great debt. If you did not offer to treat me, I wouldn’t have long to live, and besides that…”

His gaze turned toward Youyou and a mix of emotions flickered in his eyes. His tone grew even more respectful and sincere. “Besides that, Miss Lu also saved Youyou. Miss Lu, you have helped us both immensely. If there is anything you need me for, please feel free to let me know.”

Lu Liangwei had saved them because she had coincidentally bumped into them at the right time. She had not thought about asking them for anything in return, but it seemed like the old beggar was truly sincere about it, and it touched her.

“Senior, please stand up. If I need anything in the future, I won’t be asking you for it with a ceremony.”

The old beggar kowtowed once more to her before standing up.

A thought crossed his mind and he turned back toward the heating platform to take out a yellowed book from under the pillow. He passed it to Lu Liangwei. “I have nothing to repay you with right now. If Miss Lu is interested in martial arts, I’ll gift this secret manual to Miss Lu. Take it as my treatment fee paid to you.”

Lu Liangwei took it from him and flipped through a few pages of it. It was full of tips to refine skills based on one’s internal strength and the martial arts.

The pages may have been yellowed, but it had clearly been kept very well. It was evident that its owner cherished it a lot.

She was not familiar with martial arts, but she could tell how treasured this secret manual was.

If it was a medical book, she might have accepted it readily, but she was not interested in martial arts.

A person does not have unlimited energy in their one life. She did not want to waste energy on something she did not like. She would rather hide in her medicinal room instead of wasting her time learning martial arts.

“Senior, I appreciate the thought, but I have limited talents and won’t be able to master any martial arts, which is why I won’t spend any time learning it. It’s best if you take it back, Senior.” With that, she passed the secret manual back to the old beggar.

The old beggar did not force her to take it. He knew well that everybody had different things they loved, even though he saw that Miss Lu was intelligent and had good body structure. She would have done well with practicing martial arts if she chose to.

He turned to pass the book to Youyou. “You need to memorize everything in this book, starting from today onwards.”

Youyou’s eyes brightened as he took the book obediently, hugging it in his arms.

Lu Liangwei smiled and tousled his hair when she saw this. “Youyou, do you like martial arts a lot?”

Youyou nodded and looked at her seriously. “Yup. I’d like to learn martial arts properly because I want to protect Sister Lu in the future. I do like it a lot too.”

Lu Liangwei was slightly astonished, but kept her expression slightly stern. “If you say you like it, it must mean you do like it. There is no need to force yourself to do something you don’t like for someone else’s sake. Besides, I don’t need you to protect me. All you need to do is protect yourself and that should be enough.”
