Xia Zhe turned around and glanced at Qiao Mei.
She immediately understood what he meant and took out a metal box from her backpack.
Xia Zhe looked at Qiao Mei and smiled before taking the metal box from her and opening it to show the Cao family members.
“This is a 100-year-old wild ginseng.
We would like to exchange it for your house.” Xia Zhe showed the wild ginseng to the Cao family members.
The Cao family members gathered around curiously to take a closer look.
However, no one in the family was a doctor, so they did not know if this was really a wild ginseng which was 100 years old.
“A 100-year-old wild ginseng is so rare.
How can you have such a thing Could it be that youre lying to us,” said the eldest daughter-in-law of the Cao family.
Although this eldest daughter-in-law of the Cao family was not very cultured, she was indeed very shrewd and could always get to the point.
“To check if this is a 100-year-old wild ginseng, you can ask Old Mr.
Sun to come and take a look,” Xia Zhe said.
Sun was a famous old Chinese doctor in the capital.
He had already retired and also lived in this area.
Everyone in the neighborhood thought highly of his medical skills.
Usually, if anyone had any headache or fever, they would look for Old Mr.
Sun and he would always help out.
“Alright, then lets ask Old Mr.
Sun to come and take a look,” Cao Da said.
Suns house was only about 100 meters away from here.
After a short while, Cao Da came back with him.
Sun was very curious.
He had not seen many 100-year-old ginsengs during his time, let alone a wild ginseng like this one.
Suns eyes fell on the ginseng the moment he arrived and he could not take his eyes off it after that.
He looked at it and then sniffed it, but he did not dare to touch it.
“Its fine, old sir.
You can take it to have a look.” Qiao Mei saw the way the old man looked at the ginseng like it was a valuable treasure and recalled how Liu Yang looked when he saw this 100-year-old wild ginseng.
“Can I try a little bit” Old Mr.
“Of course.” Qiao Mei nodded.
Sun gently pinched a small piece of ginseng root and tasted it.
“The medicinal effect of this ginseng is extremely good.
Perhaps its due to the mountains and rivers that nurtured it.
This ginseng is so much better than ordinary 100-year-old ginseng,” Old Mr.
Sun said in a state of shock and his eyes lit up as he looked at the wild ginseng.
“Its actually true!” Cao Da said.
“Where did you get this 100-year-old wild ginseng” Old Mr.
“This was dug out from the mountain behind my wifes house,” Xia Zhe said with a smile.
“Your wife Xiao Zhe, did you get married Xia Jun didnt tell me about that.
I have to call him and tell him off,” Old Mr.
Sun said angrily.
Xia Zhe smiled and did not say anything.
Sun wrapped the ginseng and placed it back into the metal box, then he turned to look at Qiao Mei and asked, “Young girl, did you go up the mountain to harvest this”
“It wasnt me.
It was my grandfather who went up the mountain to harvest it,” Qiao Mei said.
Sun nodded in appreciation.
“There are techniques involved in harvesting ginseng.
Ordinary people cant do it.
This ginseng is perfectly whole, and the medicinal effects of natural wild ginseng which are nurtured by the mountains and rivers are always more effective than other types of ginseng.
This is such a rare object,” Old Mr.
Sun said with a sigh.
Sun then said, “Do you still have any more ginseng like this”
So that was his focal point.
There was an ulterior motive behind all the things he said.
Qiao Mei looked at Old Mr.
Sun and smiled without saying anything.
Sun immediately understood and did not continue asking.
“Youve already asked Old Mr.
Sun to take a look at this ginseng.
Let us know if you want it or not,” Xia Zhe asked.
The Cao family members could not make up their minds at that moment.
Although they knew that it was not easy to get hold of this 100-year-old wild ginseng, and Old Mr.
Sun already said that this wild ginseng was a hundred times better than other types of ginseng, where would they live after making the exchange
“Oh, you want to exchange it for a house Then why not take my house.
Im willing to exchange it with you.
My house is even more spacious than this place.
There are four sections in total.
If you want to do an exchange, you can exchange it with me!” Old Mr.
Sun hugged the metal box tightly and said to Xia Zhe.
When the Cao family members saw that the situation was no longer in their favor, they became anxious.
The Xia family had originally come to exchange it for their house, but they could now exchange it for Old Mr.
