Chapter 238

”Alright then, since you know your own place.”

At this time, a middle-aged man stepped forward and said, “Jasmine! Reuben! It looks like your grandpa is not going to make it!”

Anthony quickly asked, “’Where’s the old man? Please lead me to him so I can take a look at his condition.”

“He’s in his room at the back of the house. Please follow me,” Reuben replied as he hurriedly walked ahead to lead Anthony and his granddaughter to his grandfather.

Jasmine hurriedly beckoned for Charlie to follow behind them.

Everyone quickly arrived at a very luxurious and vintage bedroom at the back of the saw and they could see a dying old man lying on a bed on a bed frame made out of yellow rosewood.

The old man looked very haggard and his brows were tightly knitted together, as though he was enduring a great deal of pain.

Anthony quickly said, “The old man is in a very critical condition. Please allow my granddaughter and I to begin treatment immediately.”

Reuben hurriedly replied, “Dr. Simmons, please go ahead and treat my grandfather!”

Anthony nodded but instead of attending to the old man himself, he stood by the side of the bed as he beckoned for the young woman to take action.

The young girl placed a bag of silver needles on the bedside table before she started piercing the needles into the old man.

The young girl was very proficient in performing acupuncture and her skills would probably be better than any old physicians who had practiced medicine for more than twenty or thirty years. This was the reason why the members of the Moore family felt comfortable enough to allow her to perform the acupuncture on the old man.

The young girl was not only very beautiful and charming but was also very skilled and meticulous when performing acupuncture.

Hence, Charlie was not only impressed with the young girl’s external beauty and appearance, but he was also very impressed with her inner qualities.

Charlie could tell that the young girl was an expert from the way she handled the needles when she was treating the old man.

According to the Apocalyptic Book, there were five branches under Taoism, namely mountain, medicine, life, phase, and divination.

Under the cultivation of these five branches, there was some cultivation of reiki in the energy of the possessor.

At one glance, Charlie could tell that Anthony and his granddaughter were the descendants of the word ‘mountain’.

The word ‘mountain’ was mainly based on medical skills. Firstly, they had to learn basic medicine before they started practicing martial arts. After that, their skills were based on a combination of medical and martial arts skills.

However, even if Anthony and his granddaughter were descendants and fellow practitioners, they were still human and had mortal bodies. All mortal bodies can only exert reiki.

Charlie had been reborn through the reincarnation of spiritual energy and his physical body had already long surpassed that of a mortal.

Even though it seemed as though the spiritual energy cultivated under Taoism is only a little different from the reiki in Charlie’s body, there is vast difference between the two.

In layman’s terms, the comparison is similar to the differences between coal and diamond. Even though both coal and diamond possess the same origins, they are completely different in nature. Coal can only be used as raw material with very limited energy at a low cost whereas diamonds draw a lot of energy and cost a thousand times more than coal itself.

Many descendants of the five branches of Taoism have tried to cultivate their energy throughout their entire lifetime but have only been able to cultivate nothing more than a little spiritual energy.

Once any of the descendants cultivated that little bit of spiritual energy, they would be able to prolong their own lives.

However, ninety nine percent of Taoist disciples would never be able to cultivate this spiritual energy even before they die…
