Doctor's Rebirth - Chapter 12.1
I listened carefully, but I couldn’t hear anything at all. Perhaps it’s because I’ve not trained my senses? The novel did talk about Yeo Ha-ryun having a keen sense since childhood.
Jin Cheon-hee spoke.
“Do you want to eat this?”
He took out another sticky rice cake and handed it to Yeo Ha-ryun, then gestured with a smirk.
‘As naturally as possible.’
Yeo Ha-ryun immediately caught on to his intention.
He took a bite of the sticky rice cake.
He meant it.
“Right? The kitchen assistant ajusshi made it himself.”
Not long after, a woman walked out.
She was tall, refreshing, and had an impressive presence.
“Oh, it’s Eun-in.”
It was a familiar face.
“How have you been? Little Eun-in.”
It was Gongson Yeong. She spoke politely. Since saving her life, she had been referring to Jin Cheon-hee as “Little Eun-in.” Some of the servants in the back grumbled about her casual tone.
However, despite the light-hearted appearance, Jin Cheon-hee knew it wasn’t true. It was her own heavy promise.
Looking at Gongson Yeong, he wondered why she had come all the way here, and then she spoke.
“I’m gathering flowers to give to my sister. She likes flower tea.”
In her large hands, there were numerous flowers, including the roots.
Whether it was because of her strength or because she planned to put the roots in tea, or simply due to her straightforward nature, it seems she didn’t have the option to break them from the beginning.
“Little Eun-in is an amazing doctor, huh? You must know a lot about medicinal herbs, right?”
“I don’t know much about medicinal herbs because I specialize in surgery. But isn’t it Gongson Yeong-noona who should be taking them?”
“I’m healthier than anyone, so it’s fine. Look, look.”
She picked up a stone and exerted force.
Jin Cheon-hee was amazed as he saw the stone turn to dust in an instant.
‘Oh, I guess I should also learn martial arts.’
She continued speaking.
“My sister was worried about me yesterday and fell asleep while crying, and then she caught a cold. Since I’m ignorant, I can’t collect things other than these beautiful flowers… And my sister needs to be the family head, so she can’t get sick.”
‘But the truth is, that sister wants to hand over the family head position to you, right?’
-“The Gongson family head must be strong and honest. It’s not a position that a weak and wicked person like me should take. Young master.”
Jin Cheon-hee sighed.
“If it’s mugwort, I can find some for you. But why not just send someone to bring the tea for you?”
“If it’s not something from me, she won’t drink it. When my sister is sick, she becomes picky with food.”
Gongson Yeong said to Jin Cheon-hee.
“…And thank you so much. I owe you for more than just saving my life.”
She chuckled bashfully.
“Shall we boil some tea together? My sister really wanted to meet you alone.”
Why is Gongson Hyeon so deeply infatuated with Gongson Yeong?
In the novel, Gongson Yeong dies early on. As a result, all descriptions of Gongson Yeong were portrayed through Gongson Hyeon’s memories, which tend to glorify the deceased.
Gongson Hyeon’s memories of Gongson Yeong were like this:
-“Don’t worry, sis. As long as we’re together, what is there to fear in the world? Whether its martial arts or studying, I’ll work hard to become an outstanding person.”
Reality was different.
“Hey, that’s mugwort over there…”
SFX: THUD, THUD, THUD, THUD!
She pulled out the mugwort with terrifying force, like a human weed-pulling machine.
Among them, there were even weeds mixed with the mugwort.
That’s how it was. She couldn’t distinguish between weeds and mugwort.
No matter how many times she was taught, she couldn’t remember.
However, her ability to annihilate everything around her at an incredible speed was truly genius-like.
‘Does learning martial arts make everything turn out like this?’
Looking beside him, he noticed that even the little Supreme Demon was speechless, staring blankly at Gongson Yeong.
But it seemed different.
‘This is not like the narration. Well, the diligence is the same, but something is fundamentally different!’
The situation of digging mugwort in this sponsorship was not only funny but also frightening as he watched her gather at an incredible speed.
Jin Cheon-hee gave up on digging all together.
Because he knew that humans couldn’t win against machines.
He distinguished between weeds, mugwort, and flowers, one by one.
‘Even just looking at it, this one seems like an expensive orchid… It’s a hundred or a thousand times more expensive than mugwort… Yeah, let’s blame it on the sister. Isn’t that a reasonable thing to say? I just told her to dig mugwort, not turn the whole area into a desert.’
Jin Cheon-hee smiled brightly.
“I’ve collected them all. Maybe there’s too much.”
“Oh, really? Is there anything else you need besides mugwort? Should I gather some wood for you?”
-“She’s like snow and flowers, our gentle Yeong… Our kind and delicate Yeong…
‘Why does she see her as snow and flowers… It’s just a human farming tool.’
Jin Cheon-hee shuddered, realizing that 80% of memories of the deceased were mere illusions. And Gongson Hyeon’s memories of Gongson Yeong had a titanium shell also.
“This is mugwort. Since there’s too much, I’ll make tea out of it and share it to Gongson Hyeon-noona and others.”
“Oh? Yes, yes! Our little Eun-in is kind-hearted! Thinking of such things.”
‘Now that she has messed up these expensive flowers, I need to make an accomplice.’
There was a proverb told to Jin Cheon-hee by a soldier in their army.
If you eat alone, it will hurt your stomach.
By the time they find out the truth, there will be mugwort tea inside everyone’s stomachs.
Jin Cheon-hee smiled brightly.
“I don’t know how to make tea.”
“Yeah, it’s okay.”
At that moment, Little Supreme Demon Yeo Ha-ryun spoke with a puzzled expression.
“I… I’ll go back. Let me know if anything happens.”
“Sure. Is there anything else you want to say?”
Jin Cheon-hee, who didn’t forget to subtly brainwash the little Supreme Demon in his spare time while digging mugwort.
