Mesmerizing Ghost Doctor

Feng Xiao was shaken badly from his father’s sudden outburst, even his legs trembled without his own knowledge. Only the heavens know that he had not seen his father this angry in years! Without daring to enquire further, he coaxed: “Alright, alright, don’t be so angry, I’ll immediately get someone to bring her over.”

Afterwhich he quickly instructed the Steward to bring his daughter over.

At the same moment, in the courtyard of Feng Qing Ge, a middle aged man appeared soundlessly before the door to her room as he called out: “Mistress.”

When Feng Qing Ge had heard the voice, she was slightly startled but immediately said: “Come in.”

The man moved as quick as a flash and appeared right before her. She was sitting by the table and he went forward and lowered his voice into a whisper: “Old Patriarch Feng has been found and the moment he came back, he hollered to see Mistress. The Steward is on his way over as we speak, looking at this unusual situation, I’ve specially came forward to report it.”

When she heard this, her eyes dimmed for a bit as she pondered for awhile. “Alright, I’ve got it, go out first, don’t let anyone discover you.”

“Yes.”The man replied and disappeared in a flash.

She sat in the room as many thoughts ran amok in her mind. After a short while, she heard hurried footsteps outside her courtyard rus.h.i.+ng towards her door.

“Miss, Master has summoned you to the hall.”

She stood up and walked to the door and when she opened it, with a face full of worry, she asked, “Uncle Cheng, has Grandfather been found?”

“Miss, do not worry, Old Master has been found.” The Steward laughed and replied. “Old Master and Master are waiting for Miss in the hall, please head over now.”

“Alright.” She nodded her head and walked towards the main hall.

In the main hall

Feng Xiao took the teacup that was just served and placed it in his father’s hands as he said respectfully: “Father, have a drink first to soothe your throat.”

Old Patriarch Feng did not respond, only staring intently at the doorway, waiting for Feng Qing Ge.

[What actually happened?]

Feng Xiao’s heart was still riddled with questions as well as unease, but he didn’t probe further. Looking at how peculiar his Father was behaving, he didn’t think he’d be able to get any answer out of him. Looking at how things were playing out, it seems this was all related to Qing Ge?

“Old Master, Master, Young Miss is here.”

Hearing this, Feng Xiao was just about to stand up and head over but when he had barely lifted his b.u.t.t off his seat, a loud bang reverberated within the s.p.a.cious hall. Old Patriarch Feng slammed his hand on the table, exuding a grand and domineering aura.

“Sit down!”

Feng Xiao had been shocked silly from this display of dominance from his Father, even his legs were trembling a little. He immediately sat upright in a proper and dignified manner, as he cast his Father a look of apprehension. However, what he met with was a pair of eyes that was raging with fire!

He could only resign himself to this unjust situation he was in. Clearing his throat, he asked in a careful manner: “Father, please don’t put on such a front, if not you’ll scare Qing Ge later.

The understanding of his Father was something he was all too familiar with, it had seeped deep into his bones. Although his actions seemed brash and unrestrained, when it came to his family, he always had a soft spot and would immediately turn into a different person. No longer would he be the domineering General he was renowned for, instead, he would be gentle and amiable.

Old Patriarch Feng did not speak, but his sharp and diligent eyes fell on the figure who entered the hall, looking at that familiar face, his eyes narrowed.

There really were two granddaughters!

One whose face had been destroyed, one with the face he had watched grow over the years.

He narrowed his eyes as a glint flashed in those wise eyes of his.

When she came in, Feng Qing Ge could feel Old Patriarch Feng’s burning gaze on herself, and she found it somewhat strange. Why was he staring at her so? Did he find out that she was not the real Qing Ge?
